Five factory homes okayed for North Lethbridge site Five factory fabricated homes out of a total of 47 were approved Wednesday by the Municipal Planning Commission. The remaining applications were tabled until the planners had time to examine the plans for three developments in the city proposed by Schwartz Agencies Ltd. The five units okayed were approved subject to final approval by the director of planning and the development officer. Approval of the five houses was at the request of Schwartz representative Tim Filuk, who said the company was anxious to get started on the project and would like to use the houses for show homes. They will be located in the vicinity of 25th St. and 12th Ave. N. A total of 23 units are planned for this area, another seven at 13th Ave. and 23rd St. N. and 17 in Michigan Place in east Lakeview.

He said there were 15 different house styles and 45 color schemes. No two similar houses would be placed side by side. Sizes of the units, which are manufactured at the Kainai Industries Ltd. plant at Standoff, vary from 960 square feet to 1,270 square feet. Prices range from $18,000 to about $24,000, be said. The commission turned down three applications from Engineered Homes Ltd. for semidetached two-family houses in the vicinity of 4th St. and 12th Ave. N. The area had been pre-zoned, indicating the lots for two-family units, and the lots in question were not designated for this purpose. Both city council and the developer agreed on the original prezoning and the MPC felt there was no reason to deviate from the plan. Approved was an application from Louis Chow for a restaurant at 205 8th St. S. Victory Equipment had its application for machinery display at 1005 2nd Ave. N. approved, provided only new equipment appeared on the lot. Two fourplex apartments at 3408 Spruce Drive were approved, on the condition developer Frans Elemans submit new plans that conform to the zoning bylaw. The plans submitted had insufficient side-yards. Out of three home occupa tions applications, two were approved and one refused. No action was taken on a planned revision of the rules regarding home occupations. Resolution on river valley Alderman C. W. Chichester said at the Municipal Planning Commission meeting Wednesday he planned to submit a resolution to city council Monday regarding development applications for tourist accommodations in the river valley. Both Aid. Chichester and MPC chairman Joe Balla attended a meeting Tuesday between some members of council and the parks and recreation commission to discuss areas of the valley that might be suitable for such development. Although details of the resolution were not released, it was indicated that rezoning of the areas would be required. Several applications have been received, both by the MPC and city council. Decisions have been delayed until both bodies could study a recreation survey of the river valley commissioned by the parks and recreation department. Proposal on Drive density A new proposal regarding revision of density standards in C-8 commercial zones on Mayor Magraih Drive was submitted to the Municipal Planning Commission Wednesday. There was no discussion on the proposal, which will be presented to city council Monday. Erwin Adderley, executive director of the Oldman River Regional Planning Commission, who prepared the proposal, did not release any details. He did say his report contained alternatives to the revision currently under consideration by city council. The report was requested by council when it first considered changing the density standards from 0.5 to 1.0. This amendment to the zoning bylaw ha6 been given first reading and the public hearing is set for Monday. The change in density standards has been requested by the MPC and a private developer. It would allow twice the present permissible floor area on a given site, if approved in its present form by council. Two proposed motels, one a high-rise, would be permissible if the change goes through. Hospitals' service staffs vote to accept contract By JIM MAYBIE Herald Staff Writer About 230 service personnel employed in two Lethbridge hospitals have voted in favor of accepting a 27-month contract which basically gives them a salary increase of $60 a month in four stages.  The offer was made by the Alberta Hospitals Association on behalf of 28 hospitals in the province, including the Lethbridge Municipal and Lethbridge Auxiliary hospitals. The employees, members of the Canadian Union of Public Employees, include housekeeping, laundry and dietary staff and ward aides. Art Roberts of Calgary, chairman of CUPE's negotiating committee, told The Herald in a telephone interview that the union had asked for a 20 per cent salary increase in a one-year contract. The AHA offered an increase of $10 a month for 1971 and 315 a month for 1972, he said. "That would have amounted to $25 over 27 months because it was decided the contract should have the same March 31 year-end as the province," Mr. Roberts said. The union threatened to demonstrate throughout the province to let the public know what wages were being made in hospitals, he said, "and this political pressure had some bearing on the most recent AHA offer." A week ago CUPE met the AHA committee in Edmonton where the final offer was hammered out. The vote of the 1,-900 to 2,000 service personnel in the 28 hospitals involved is not expected to be known until next week. Some employees have voted, some are in the process of voting and others still have to vote, Mr. Roberts said. - Of those who have so far voted, all have accepted the offer. The individual hospital boards have a right to turn down the offer made on their behalf. The salary increases are effective Jan. 1, 1971; Oct. 1, 1971; April 1, 1972; Oct. 1, 1972. The contract will expire March 31, 1973. Wages and salaries were the only point of negotiations. Fringe benefits and conditions of employment remain the same as in last year's contract, Mr. Roberts said. The base starting rate now is $305 a month or $1.75 an hour, he said. Those in the $305 to $400 a month category will receive $15 a month more on each of the mentioned dates. By April, 1972 those on the starting rate will be over the $2 an hour rate and by October, 1972 they will be earning $2.10 an hour. Service personnel now earning more than $400 a month will receive four $20 a month raises, those earning $500 will receive four $25 raises and those over $600 a month will receive four $30 raises. Majority of the Lethbridge employees are in the $305 to $400 a month bracket so will receive four $15 raises. Others will receive the $20 and $25 raises but none are in the category of earning more than $600. CUPE is negotiating separately with the larger hospitals in the province not included in the 28 represented by the AHA, Mr. Roberts. said. "We asked for a 20 per cent increase over one year but felt that 20 per cent over 27 months was at least something that could be accepted by the union membership," he said. Salaries make up the largest cent of operational costs. Since part of a hospital's operating 1965 salaries at LMH have expense. Last year at LMH, for climbed $1,007,173 or 84.9 per example, salaries totalling $2,- cent compared with $298,205 or 193,689 accounted for 73.4 per 56.8 per cent for other operat- ing costs. In the last 10 years salaries have climbed 135 per cent compared with 76.1 percent for other operational costs. Lethbridge West riding Socreds pick Gruenwald R. D.
