Kerber Photo Drug undercover operation started in city By BENNETT Herald Staff Writer A province-wide drug raid Monday by members of the Lethbridge, Calgary monton city police and and Ed- the RCMP which resulted in 57 ar- rest warrants had its start in Lethhridge. A Lethbridge police spokes- man told The Herald the initial undercover investigation by an RCMP constable started in Lethbridge in "At that time there were a lot of drug sales going on, and BEAUTIFY YOUR HOME BY STARTING YOUR OWN TERRARIUM Let us help pick the motif thafs just right for you PRICED FROM MARQUIS FLOWER SHOP Phone 327-T515 we had several rumors of drug sales being conducted in local he said. "We figured there was a problem in the city, so we ask- ed for assistance from the RCMP. From Lethbridge the investigation moved to Calgary and then to Edmonton. "We had to delay a planned raid in Lethbridge twice so it would not interfere with leads in the other he said. The final raid occurred simul- taneously in all three cities shortly after 8 p.m. Monday. The effects of the massive drug raid are not expected to be very noticable. The police source told The Herald, "We won't see any noticable cooling in the drug business it's too big and there is too much money involved." Other traffickers are expect- ed to soon take the place of those arrested in the raid. "The people who are dealing in drugs are doing it purely for profit, it's a big and very profitable business. It has such a strong foothold out there that completely erasing it is nearly the source said. "I'd like to think massive and well-co-ordinated raids like this one would make the people who deal in and use drugs smarten up, but it never seems to hap- the source continued.

Officials of the department of Indian affairs are expecting the new facility to be opera- tional before Christmas. The new building will face a northeast southwest direction. Included in the plans are a large multi-purpose area, kitch- en facilities, office and health clinic rooms and corresponding waiting rooms, and staff rooms. The blueprints of the new building show space for an additional six rooms as needed to be built on the south side. Space has been provided for the construction of an auditorium on the southwest comer should the need arise. Included in the new structure will be specially-built folding walls which will allow the fa- cility to be used with conven- tional teaching methods in in- dividual rooms.

The abundance of heroin for sale in Alberta 29 of the 57 warrants issued were for heroin dealers indicates organized crime already has its fingers in the Alberta underground drug market, he said. The police source told The Herald he is "sure there are big, organized crime lead- ers in Alberta if there had been they would have turned up in Monday's he said. The source speculated all of the hard drugs in Canada were sold by one, or at the most two very large illegitimate, syn- dicate-operated businesses with centres of operation in Van- couver and possibly Toronto. To support his contention he cited recent murders of drug dealers in Vancouver.

No local organization for protest There is apparently no or- ganized protest group from the Lethbridge area taking part in July 1 and 2 demonstrations at Suffield, northeast of Medicine Hat. More than 700 people are ex- pected to protest British Army manoeuvres and Canadian gov- ernment participation in army activities at Suffield. Ecology and anti-war groups, mainly from Calgary and Ed- monton will rally in Medicine Hat July 1. A procession will travel 20 miles the next day to Suffield where another rally is scheduled. Lethbridge participants, of which there will be a few, will attend individually rather than as part of a local organized protest. Dorothy Beckel, a member of the Alberta Wilderness As- sociation, said Lcthb'Hdge peo- ple made their opposition to the army manoeuvres known in protest letters to the Cana- dian government last year when the training project was announced.

For the population size of the city, the downtown area 'is un- derdeveloped, said the minis- .er. It could use a large hotel or department store to increase ts attractiveness to customers. More customers, in turn would make the downtown area more attractive for new com- mercial development. The main prohlem is a lack of land available for a large commercial enterprizc, he said. The only firm that owns enough land in the downtown is Marathon Realty, the real es- tate arm of the CPR said Mr. Russell. While Lethbridge city council has the power to assemble land for commercial development, under current legislation the Alberta Housing Corporation does not, said the minister, October earliest for teacher talks Negotiations on a new con- tract for Lethbridge public school teachers will not start until October at the earliest. Both sides have to sit back and wait until the provincial legislature approves a new fi- nancing program for school boards because, at the present time, school boards have no idea of how much money they will be getting from the gov- ernment year. for the next school The three-year financing pro- gram established by the form- er Social Credit governmerjl expired this year. "We have no idea of how much money we will be getting for said Dr. 0. P. Lar- son, superintendent of the Leth bridge public school system. "It would be hard for the two groups to have meaningfu negotiations under these condi Bill Cousins, president of .ethbridge Local 41 of the Al- >erta Teachers Association, aid the situation does not pre- ent much of a hardship be- ause the negotiations wouldn't lave started until September ince teachers are not avail- ble during the summer. "There should only be a one month he said. How ever, he added that school fi nancing will have to be high on he fall legislature's agenda o: lie delay could be longer. The present two-year teachc: agreement expires at the em of this year.
