Ph. 328-8161 1705 M.M. Drive Ph. 328-7751 Jury rules no blame in fire death A coroner's jury in Lethbridge Tuesday attached no blame in the Feb. 25 death of 42 - year - old George Calling Last of Cardston. Calling Last's body was found in a burned - out vehicle at a Lethbridge auto wrecker's yard, after fire fighters had answered a call and extinquish-ed the blaze. The six - man jury, presided over by Coroner Dr. J. E. Morgan reported: "the deceased apparently was severely intoxicated prior to the accident, and the fire was probably caused from cigarette burns to a mattress in the wrecked truck van." The jury recommended tighter security of the auto wrecker's premises. River valley applications before MPC Some action is expected in today's meeting of the Municipal Planning Commission on two applications for tourist accommodation facilities in the city's river valley. Areas suitable for such facilities were discussed at a closed meeting Tuesday between a committee of city council and the parks and recreation commission. Decisions on several applications have been delayed while a survey of recreation uses of the river valley, commissioned by the parks and recreation department, was studied. Witnesses asked for RCMP in Pincher Creek have asked that anyone who witnessed a fatal accident Feb. 21 near Brocket contact them immediately. The accident took the life of a 21-year-old Diamond City man when the car in which he was riding left Highway 3 and overturned.

Survey and inspections Cleai-up on 'illegal' suites under way While the city hall building department is keeping a watch of new development applications, no direct action has yet been taken to close down existing illegal suites in the city. The city's building department is making sure there is no room for misunderstanding regarding new developments, including renovations to basements. Where applicable, building permits are clearly stamped to indicate the permission is for single - family use only. Work has also started on a survey of all existing single-family dwellings built since Jan. 1, 1970. City manager Tom Nutting has directed that assessment records and on - site inspections be used to tabulate a list of all persons who are operating or who have contracted an illegal suite. This report may be ready sometime in April.

RECREATION VEHICLES West of Gas Company Arena plan possible by Monday Mayor Andy Anderson said Wednesday a report may be ready in time for Monday's meeting of city council on a proposal for a replacement for the Lethbridge Arena. Mayor Anderson said a meeting had been held Tuesday with the Lethbridge and District Exhibition Board to discuss the possibility of some type of joint venture. The board some months ago presented a proposal to council on a new ice facility with limited seating at the exhibition ground. The new proposal is quite different from the original concept, Mayor Anderson said. . . . for EASTER send the FTD HAPPY NEST Delivered almost anywhere in the U.S. or Canada MARQUIS FLOWER SHOP Marquis Hotel Bldg. Phone 327-1515 Notification is to be prepared"! and approved by the city solicitor to all violators of the zoning or building bylaws. They are to be given reasonable time to bring their units into compliance with the bylaws. No actual time limit has been specified. Mr. Nutting points out that while two - family houses are conditionally p e rmissible in single - family zones, they must be built on lots with a total of 7,000 square feet (7,500 for corner lots) and a 56 foot frontage. It is his opinion that the Municipal Planning Commission does not have the authority to waive these standards. If this is the case, only a limited number of two - family units would be allowed in R-l zones. Mr. Nutting suggests that in those cases where it proves impossible to achieve compliance with the bylaws, these should be amended to allow the use to continue without being in violation.

Of the twelve bids, the highest came from Wappel Concrete and Construction Ltd. - $133,600. Only two bids were from Lethbridge firms. Total cost of the project has been estimated at $182,000. Cost of materials will have to be added to the tender price. The project will extend the sanitary trunk sewer from the vicinity of the television station southeast to the sewage life station in the 3700 block of 5th Ave. N.

In a telephone interview from the Peigan Band administration office, Mr. Cardinal said his tour of the 42 reserves in Alberta, about three - quarters completed, is designed to get feed - back from the Indian population to the programs initiated by IAA. Touring the province with Mr. Cardinal is Dick Grey Eyes, the newly appointed regional superintendent of Indian affairs in Edmonton. Mr. Grey Eyes is seeing first hand some of the problems existing on the reserves under his jurisdiction. Mr. Cardinal said the other main reason for the tour is to see existing social and economic problems on the reserves, determine what IAA can do to help, and what the people expect IAA to do to alleviate these problems. Some areas already changed include shifting alcohol and drug counselling to the Native Counselling Services branch with chairman Chester Cunningham; and economic development for reserves to a body separate from the association. He said the association will take a close, detailed look at the political sphere of the Indian in the coming years. "We are starting a detailed research into treaty and aboriginal rights and how the Indian is affected by them," he said. "Research on the treaty question will involve land lost in the last 100 years - land lost through questionable circumstances. "Documentation by the research people will give an adjudicating body representing the Indian a basis of understanding with the federal government." He said both parties, Indian and the federal government, will be able to sit down and negotiate a settlement which will give some justification for the loss of this land, if this is the finding of the research personnel. Mr. Cardinal said as finances and personnel permit, the research and negotiation should take about two to four years to complete. "Highly technical people, anthropologists, lawyers and historians will be involved," he said. "They will begin with the older people and work their way through records and the younger people until they are finished." Mr. Cardinal continues his tour, visiting the Blood Indian Reserve at Cardston today to Friday. LCC survey on residence for students Lethbridge Community College students were recently surveyed concerning their interest in construction of a college students' residence. Don Gray, LCC Student Council treasurer, is compiling results from the 10-point questionnaire, which he hopes could result in hastening college board approval for the residence. Questions asked whether students would live in residence, whether or not they were returning to the college next year, whether they lived out of town and commuted, or had moved into Lethbridge, the type of accommodations they would want - and the type they have now, price they would be willing to pay, and whether they thought residences would attract more students to the college. Mr. Gray received 548 replies to the questionnaire. MIKE HANZEL EXTRA WEAR FOR EVERY PAIR 317 7th STREET SOUTH BEAR in mind Now Showing at Camm's . . .
