Phone 327-3024 Indian Battle Park should be developed Herald Legislative Bureau EDMONTON Lethbridge should lw included with Cal- jaiy and Edmonton in a new provincial government plan to put provincial parks in cities, John Anderson East) said during the budget debate this week. Mr. Anderson suggested a provincial park could be de- veloped near Indian Battle Park in the Oldman River val- ley area. "This would be an ideal park for those who are unable or cannot afford to travel to our already overcrowded parks in the he suggested. The provincial government has already purchased land to establish a park in the Fish Creek area in south Calgary over the next 10 years. The location of an Edmonton park has not yet been announc- ed. Mr. Anderson also called for increased provincial govern- ment spending on the univer- sity arid community college in Lethbridge, senior citizens hous- ing and industrial incentives. He added "I hope the budget contains sufficienl funds to complete the upgrading of Highway 3 lo Medicine Hat. This is an alternative Trans- Canada Highway and serves Southern Alberta and the tour- ist industry. "I would like to see the high- way from Magrath to Water- ton Lakes also upgraded."

Rick Ervin photos Disc brakes are a hot selling item. So several manufacturers are 'beginning to make them standard on their front wheels. Volvo has power-assisted disc brakes on all four wheels. Not to sell you. To stop you. Disc brakes have been standard with us for years. Because we believe they're more efficient than conventional drum brakes. They resist fading, even after repeated panic stops. The law says all cars must have two braking circuits. Volvo did better than that before the law was made. With two triangular circuits. Each controls three wheels. So if one circuit fails, you still have about 80% of your braking power. Vfe also have a device to help prevent your rear wheels from locking in an emergency stop. Great brakes are one of many features that have long been standard on Volvo. For some time we've also had firm suspension and radial tires to keep you in touch with the road. A rear window defroster. Bucket seats with adjustable back supports. Front and rear ends which absorb the impact of a collision instead of passing it on to the passenger compartment. Other manufacturers are beginning to "introduce" some of these features because people are beginning to want them. We keep putting them all in Volvo, because we think you need them.
