The ratepayers are in the Stavely and district recreation area from Parkland to the road south of Poultenev. Also included in the recreation district are 360 Stavely residents. They now pay two mills and the MD citizens one. The recreation district wants it raised two mills each to four in town and three in the MD. It would increase recreation revenue to trom the town and from the MD about double now received. Mayor Du Cheneau said the recreation board wants to install artificial ice and extend the dressing rooms for the skating rink at a cost of The skating rink board has been transformed into the Stavely and District Agricultural Society to enable it to qualify for a grant Irom the provincial government (if matched Revenue from the increased mills would be used to amortize the Alberta Municipal Finance Corporation borrowing debenture to match the grant dollars. Mayor Du Cheneau said the dressing rooms would cost an ice machine and a cement pad He said lacrosse and hockey schools are going to be introduced to the town. MD secretary-treasurer Ruben Hartfelder asked what term the debentures will be and Mayor Du Cheneau said would provide that information as soon as possible. Coun. Harvey Cherniak said a plebiscite, if required, would indicate local support for the project. The .extra two mills on the MD levy would be included in the upcoming May budget. Aiming high Trustees will abk gov for CCHS improvements I The Alberta School Buildings Board will be asked to approve modifications to Catholic Central High School, the Lethbridge Separate School Board decided Wednesday. The board accepted the recommendation of a special committee set up in January to recommend priorities. It decided to go for a lunchroom and a covered walkway between the two main buildings at CCH if it couldn't obtain all the needs identified in the study. But the board will first try to get improved drama and physical education facilities and specialized spaces as well as the lunchroom and walkway. The report proposed construction of a gymnasium, since current physical education facilities were inadequate for the number of students, and said "even casual observation" showed the need for the walkway. The drama facility also required upgrading, it said. And CCH lacked small spaces for specialized activities such as nursing services and conferences. The foot lunchroom would include lunch facilities, a student lounge and possibly space for use as a part-time library. It would have to be accessible to students at CCH and St. Mary's School and to delivery and garbage disposal services. The report said plans should consider adaptability to possible changes in the building's use and future physical education and school athletics needs. Increased community use should also be considered, it said. Firm will chart LCC master plan At long last, the Lethbridge Community College is ready to chart its future. After considering the idea of a master plan for about three years and spending another two years attempting to find somebody to prepare it, the college board hired an Edmonton firm Wednesday to begin work on the plan. Contract Education and Training Services of Edmonton will start developing the plan immediately for presentation to the board of governors by Aug. 1. 1974. The master plan is to chart the future course of the college by looking at new program possibilities and existing programs to not only determine how they can be accommodated in the physical plant but also how they fit into the overall development of post secondary education in Alberta. The Edmonton firm's team of planners will seek input from faculty students, administration and the community when developing the plan. Dance group at Vales The Anna Wyman Dance Theatre of Vancouver will be at the Yates Memorial Center tonight at 8 p.m. The group consists of nine dancers who will do contemporary dances and creative improvisations. It's the first dance company ever to receive a Canada Council grant. LCC is the only post- secondary institution in the province without a master plan. Development nixed again A proposal to develop a 640 acre residential subdivision east of Lethbridge was rejected Thursday by the County of Lethbridge. The application by Ranchland Recreation to have a section of land zoned to allow country-residential development was turned down in a 4 to 3 vote by the county's municipal committee. The area is now zoned for agricultural use only. J. A. Jarvie, the subdivision developer, had applied to the county last month for re- first step toward final approval and construction of the project. The decision had been tabled twice because full council was not present. One of the main considerations in the refusal was that the Jarvie land is irrigated and classed as prime farm land. Some councillors, and the Oldman River Regional Planning Commission, which has authority over subdivision, have argued against allowing country- residential development on prime land. College to expand library The Lethbridge Community College will be able to expand its library by about volumes this year thanks to a "one-time only" resource material grant from the department of advanced education. C. D. Stewart, president, said in an interview Wednesday the grant will allow the LCC library to expand to a total of about 27.000 volumes. Major purchases will be made to provide more books, in the medical fields for students in the college's nursing programs. The college is also to receive a grant from the department for renovations and alterations to college buildings. Dr. Stewart says no major decisions will be made about renovations to the college until the master plan for the college is completed this fall. However, he did say the renovations are needed to rearrange some areas of the college building to meet the needs of expanding programs. Environmental programs are growing rapidly in student population and laboratories must be built to provide the students with the opportunity to spend more time in the laboratory, he explained when asked for an example of the need for renovations.

Private schools included in divided-year study Lethbridge separate school trustees Wednesday voted to participate in the evaluation of the divided school year. The board will contribute of the estimated cost of the evaluation and the remainder will come from the public school board, which approved the evaluation Tuesday. The evaluation, to be conducted by a University of Calgary graduate student, will study results of the five-year experiment with the divided school year drawing to a close in both Lethbridge school systems. The divided school year added an extra half-hour to the school day in the fall semester, so semester final examinations fell at Christmas instead of at the end of January. The board accepted an industrial arts evaluation report, with the exception of two items. A budgeting recom- mendation suggesting reclass- ification of some shop tools as school supplies rather than capital equipment, and a recommendation that some equipment be disposed of. were deleted at the insistence of trustee Ron Fabbi. Trustee Paul Matisz had suggested passing all the recommendations because they "can't do any harm." Recommendations included developing a better system of marking student progress and reporting to parents, hiring of a teachers' aide for the shop program, re-definition of goals and classroom 'procedures and discussions between personnel concerned from Catholic Central High School and the department of education. Trustees also received an enrolment report showing a decline of 50 pupils from the ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC Schwirtz Blrjg III 5th SI S Phone 328-4095 ART STUDIO ON FIFTH AVENUE An Exhibition of OIL and WATER COLOUR PAINTINGS JESSIE R.

He made the announcement after answering trustee Steve Vaselenak's question about the number of invoices to glass companies in the board's bills. The secretary- treasurer said some were the result of vandalism and others the result of accidents or wear and tear.

Supt. Ralph Himsl told the board the department wanted to decentralize its Edmonton collection of films. Decentralized collections serving local areas in Edmonton and Calgary were getting more use than the central collection, he said. The board had given approval -in principle in December to development of an audio-visual centre in Lethbridge. Southern Alberta school superintendents also met to discuss the government's offer.
