Meetings were held Tuesday between a city delegation and Holloway remanded to March 10 Frank Holloway, 29, of Pincher Creek, was remanded in custody when he appeared in magistrate's court in Pinch-er Creek Tuesday on a charge of attempted murder. The charge arose from a shooting incident Feb. 26 in Holloway's home. Joseph Yellow Wing, 32, also of Pincher Creek, was wounded in the head during the incident. A .22 calibre bullet hit Yellow Wing between the eyes and came out through his cheek. He is in satisfactory condition in hospital at Pincher Creek. The main damage was to the cheek area. Holloway is in custody in the Lethbridge Correctional Institute and will appear in magistrate's court in Lethbridge at 10 a.m., March 10. Provincial Judge L. B. Le-vine presided at the Pincher Creek court session Tuesday. Permit issued A $46,000 building permit to Kenwood Engineering Construction Ltd. of Lethbridge was issued Tuesday for an electrical switchgear building on the city's west side. The concrete building, which will be Set into the side of the coulee, will house electrical equipment necessary for the University of Lethbridge's permanent hook-up to the city's power distribution system. officials from Alberta Municipal Financing Corporation and the health department. Mayor Andy Anderson said no new developments are expected until something has been worked out between the provincial and federal governments on the amount of money allocated to Alberta this year through Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation for pollution control. Alberta received $7 million last year and had asked for $10 million this year out of the $85 for the entire country. Instead it had received only $3 million. Mayor Anderson said the province had undertaken to request more money and nothing could be decided on how much Lethbridge might be able to borrow through CMHC until this had been resolved. He reiterated that the city would be able to borrow the money, it was merely a matter of how this would be done. A loan through CMHC would be the best deal for the city as such a loan would carry a 25 per cent forgiveness clause. 324 pints of blood first day A total of 324 persons Tuesday donated their pint of blood during the first day of the Canadian Red Cross blood donor clinic.

Phone 327-2244 OPEN THURSDAY TILL 9 P.M. mmm Best use of land commission topic The Lethbridge Parks and Recreation Commission, Tuesday night, voted unanimously to recommend to city council that before any athletic facilities are removed there should be adequate replacement for those facilities in another area. The recommendation came as a result of a discussion of land usage in Lethbridge. City Alderman Jim Anderson said Lethbridge was over - parked. This city has a higher ratio of Powerful blower aids in clearing snow from airport in two hours Snow clearing vital at airport Snow removal at any airport is of the greatest importance. Kenyan Field at Lethbridge is no exception. The field has two runways, both more than; a mile long, and many taxi and parking strips. If the runways and parking strips are clogged with snow the airport cannot function. If the snow is not adequately cleared from the runways they will present a great problem to landing aircraft. Loose snow left on the run- way may melt and turn to ice, or a landing aircraft with brakes applied may hit the snow causing a dangerous, uncontrolled skid. Current snow clearing equipment includes one large diesel truck, rotary snow blower and power unit; two snow-plow equipped trucks (like those used in clearing highways); one 12 foot revolving snow brush with blower unit. This equipment enables crews to clear the airport facilities of snow in less than two hours. Says Lethbridge economist New budget fdoes little1 for industry Alberta's new budget is disappointing because it does little to encourage development of industry in the province, says Lethbridge economist Dr. Herb Axford. Dr. Axford, professor of economics at the University of Lethbridge and former chairman of the city's economic development commission, said industry and tourism should be encouraged through the Alberta Commercial Corporation. He said today it provides working capital only for small businesses, but it "should start providing long-term development capital so more small businesses could expand in Alberta and more jobs could be created in our small and secondary industries." He said the $64 million budgeted for social development was largely spent "on what has become just a popular propaganda slogan." Much Word on citizen's home likely Friday Lethbridge should know by Friday if the provincial government plans to build another senior citizens home in the city. Dave Rogers, deputy minister of social development, said in a telephone interview this morning that the government should make a decision by Friday on where four new senior citizens homes will be built this year. The budget calls for a $1.8 million expenditure. Mr. Rogers said Minister Ray Speaker was not prepared to make a statement yet as a few things still have to be worked out. The city has been trying for more than two years to obtain another senior citizens home. There now are two-the Green Acres and the Golden Acres lodges. COMPLETE CARPET AND LINOLEUM INSTALLATION HAMILTON'S FLOOR COVERING LTD. 909 3rd Ave. S. Ph. 327-5454 of the sum would be better-spent in other areas, he said. "I'm also concerned about our oil and gas revenues listed in the budget. The revenues picture looks as though its up about $53 million over last year, but at the same time the actual oil sales are dropping. "Revenues to the government are up because the price is up and taxes increase, and the picture looks good for competitive sales to the U.S. "However, with sales down by $34 million over-all, which means the oil exploration boom is leaving Alberta - a bad development for our future." The government's plans for housing developments, particularly those for senioir citizens, Dr. Axford said, are welcome and necessary. The lack of any increase in taxes, which puts the income portion of the budget in balance is also welcome, but the deficit resulting from heavy capital expenditures is "pretty unfortunate." "I'm sorry to see that deficit -it's pretty large, and we haven't had too good an explanation of where all the deficit will be made up from," Dr. Axford said. "They only explained it away in lumps, and I would regret to see us having to rely on New York or Europe to keep our Alberta financal affairs." He said the $85 million of direct borrowing contemplated by the government "should be in bonds priced so they'll sell in Canada or even in Alberta, to keep the money at home." Dr. Axford said the provincial government could do little to alleviate unemployment by itself, "since it's largely a result of federal monetary policies.

"We need well-financed provincial projects using men to clean up our parks and do other jobs. But civil service and similar jobs won't change the employment picture - they and education are at maximum employment capacity now." None of the long-term pro- jects Alberta is now starting, and which are a cause of the provincial deficit, "really warrant the high interest rates we'll be paying for borrowing that money," Dr. Axford said, and they will provide few jobs. "What we need to do is tighten our belts a bit, and to start making certain that when we undertake capital development projects they'll be self-financing." Local problems Deputy Mayor Rex Little said there was only one aspect of the budget he cared to comment on at this time and that related to the announced limit-irg of grants to municipalities under the municipal assistance act to $38 million. The ceiling on grants was an indication, he said, that the municipalities were going to be faced with increasing problems in finding sufficient revenue to finance their operations. He said he couldn't blame the provincial government because "they need more money" but at the same time there would probably be increased problems at the local level. Deputy Mayor Little said the move increased the need for a major revision of the entire tax structure. Education costs, which now take a large portion of the city's revenue, should not be covered out of taxes on homes and property, he said. He called for local control by the municipality over its own financing, resulting in a "more equitable" distribution of revenue. RED CROSS YOUTH Canadian Red Cross Youth have provided vocational training and health education in the slums of Peru; supported a training centre for mothers in Malawi; and worked with Ja mate an youth to help strengthen that country's Junior Red Cross program. Fire inquiry is adjourned Th� inquiry into the cause of the Jam. 4 fire at Italian Importers, 546 13th St. N., Lethbridge, was adjourned today. No future date has been set for it to reconvene. The adjournment resulted when L. D. Maclean, representing John Pietramala - the building's owner, refused to let his client present evidence to Fire Ckmimissioner A. E. Bridges of Edmonton. Mr. Maclean said, "There must be an authority to call a man and place him in judgment, and if there is no authority then the right in common law does not exist and that authority can only vary the (jommon law when it is specifically set out by a statute. There is no specific provision set out relating to any hearing similar to this, with which I am familiar." Mr. Maclean was granted time to appeal the question of whether a fire commissioner had the power to order a man to present evidence in an inquiry which might prove harmful to him if it were to be used in a trial. The power, known as compellability, of requiring a man to present such evidence is granted to a coroner in a specific section of Alberta law, but apparently no such section appearr. in the description of the powers of a fire commissioner. park acreage per person than most other cities its size across Canada. Aid. Anderson said the time is rapidly approaching when the city will not be able to afford to have potentially high tax revenue lands used as parks. The discussion centred around the Civic Sports Centre area. Aid. Anderson said the land on which the track was located was a potentially high tax revenue source, and though it is a beautiful park, he could not see how the city could afford to keep valuable land so close to the centre of the city as a park, when a high - rise apartment on the same site would give the city greatly added revenue. A letter from the Houston Sports Association of Houston, Texas, was also read to t h e meeting. The letter requested the use of Henderson Ball Park as a place to hold a baseball recruiting camp early in June. The letter was forwarded to the city council for approval. Tax men coming Federal government income tax representatives will be in Lethbridge next week to answer questions of taxpayers about filing their income tax returns. Arrangements as to telephone numbers to call have not been completed. Further details will be announced when completed. Representatives are scheduled to be here Monday to Friday. see os for fosf, expert PHOTO NI SHIMS i<3I^I Anglo Distributors Stereo A Photographic Centre 419 5th Street South Phone 328-6922 CANDLE SALE!
