March 29 to April 3 has been designated Elk Week here. Design plans approved for two factory units The Municipal Planning Commission Wednesday approved design plans for two factory fabricated units to be erected by Squire Developments in the 2000 block of 14th Ave. N. Sales of 1971 plates said slow The licence plate market this year is slow for passenger cars, motorcycles and farm vehicles, officials of the Alberta Motor Association and the Lethbridge Provincial motor vehicle branch office, said Wednesday. The AMA reports it has sold 2,859 licence plates for passenger cars this year compared to 2,927 by this time last year- a decrease of 68 plates. The motor vehicle branch reports it has sold 3,542 plates compared to 3,664 plates sold by this time last year - a decrease of 322 plates. The number of plates purchased for motorcycles has decreased by 67 from the number sold by this time last year. There have been 123 sold this year. The decrease in the number of farm plates sold this year is reported to be 179. There have been 1,478 sold this year. The sale of X-plates commercial plates for use within a five mile radius of the city has shown an increase of 30 from last year at the AMA and 23 at the MVB. There were 574 X-plates sold last year at this time. The purchase of trailer licences to date is 8% up 106 from last year. Tosh Kanashiro, development officer, told the commission the developer had revised the plans to include storage space in the basement-less houses after having been advised the city was considering regulations to require such space. ' The necessary bylaw amendment, however, was turned down by city council Monday on third reading and there was some question as to whether the MPC could now ask the builder to provide the storage space. Chairman Joe Balla noted that some type of control over factory fabricated units should be written into the bylaw. The amendment that was turned down by council also provided control over location and variety of design in the units. In closed session the MPC approved six more similar units being put up by Schwartz Agencies Ltd. A total of 15 have now been approved out of 51 applications. When these 15 have been completed an inspection by the MPC and possibly city council will be made. A decision will then be made on t h e remaining applications. Refused by the commission was an application from Eugene Welteriich Construction for a four-suite apartment at Bridge open Lethbridge's 9th Street bridge is again open to traffic after a three-day closure for minor repairs. The work done by Bromley Mechanical Services Ltd. of Medicine Hat consisted of bolt tightening and welding that needed to be done following the renovations to the bridge last fall. The $20000 renovation job eliminated cross-members that were too low to allow the passage of many larger trucks.' FRED KING MOTORS SERVICE AND PARTS DEPT.

A petition from the neighbors in the single-family area was a factor in the decision. Approved was an application from David Green to establish a soft drink bottle depot and confectionary at 544 13th St. N. No action was taken on two applications for tourist accommodation facilities in the river valley. Council Monday approved the preparation of detailed plans for thie area, including possible rezoning, and the developments are awaiting the completion of this plan. Beef seminar Saturday All phases of the beef industry will be dealt with at a one-day beef seminar in the Lethbridge Exhibition Pavilion Saturday. Speakers and their topics include: Dr. Glen Purnell, Canada department of agriculture economist, Ottawa - The Economics of the Beef Production Industry; Ken Leckie, Meat Packers Council, Toronto - New Development in the Meat Packing Industry; Frank Gat-tey, Alberta Cattle Commission, Calgary - speaking on the commission; Jim Wilfley, Lakeside Feeders, Brooks - Developments in the Beef Feedlot and their Relationships to the Beef Industry; D. A. Reid, Federated Coops, Saskatoon - Trends in Meat Merchandising; K. R Sveinson, Royal Bank of Canada, Calgary - The Beef Industry and its Financing; Gordon Burton, president Western Stock Growers' Association, Claresholm - summary of program. Bud Olson, federal minister of agriculture will be the featured speaker at a 6:30 dinner concluding the seminar. Registrations by mail acknowledged Elks were formed in 1912, Order of the Royal Purple in 1914 and they have helped a lot of needy children to nourishment aad the good life in the past 60 some odd years. The Lethbridge community is better for the Elks, donating $7,000 average annually to charities. Tint's why the Elks deserve more than a little recognition. Here's a chance to applaud a bit: Lethbridge, Picture Butte, Taber, Warner, Milk River and Barons Elks. OBJECTIVES Objectives of Elk Week are: To promote Elk charities and activities in the community. To enhance the image of Elkdom. To instill a renewal of pride in the order among the members. To increase attendance to lodge meetings and functions. Perhaps the Elks are taken just a little bit too much for granted. Perhaps we don't realize just how much we'd miss them if they weren't around doing all their good deeds. For example, this year to date they've put nearly $5,000 into charities here in Lethbridge. They put $10,000 into the Boy Scout's Camp Inuspi some years back. You name the charity - the Elks back it, locally and nationally. The idea for Elks Week originated in the mind of hard-driving, idealistic George Williams, 40, exalted ruler of Lethbridge BPOE Lodge 37. Ruler Williams says the week will do much for the prestige of the Elks, who, he says, boost charities by thousands of dollars and never get much credit for the good work. He was elected last June for a one-year term. Mr. Williams is also on the executive of the Lethbridge Flying Club, says he works for the Elks because "Lethbridge had done plenty for me and I want to pay some of it back." At this time of year, the big Elk project is, of course, minor hockey. It takes thousands of dollars to keep this show on the road. Tonight Elks will put forward their plan to help finance a new arena. Lethbridge minor hockey can always count on the Elks, for money, but more important, for coaching and managerial time and talent. Roy Ennis has coached the Midget Elks to the south Alberta championship. HOCKEY GAME Elk Week will feature some of the greats in a hockey game Facing off will be the Lethbridge Midget Elks and Elk Oldtimers. It takes place at the Civic Centre and at 8 p.m. Wednesday anid many of the 1951 world champion Lethbridge Maple Leafs will don the blades again such as Hec Negrello, Bill Gibson, Don McLean, Carl Sorok-oski, Dick Gray as well as former professionals Howie Yano-sik and Les Colwill and many others. All proceeds will be awarded to the Lethbridge Minor Hockey Association. The game goes Wednesday at 8 p.m. The Elks have put $600 into this team recently for jackets and so on. Tuesday, March 30, will be a very great night for oysters. Fresh imported coast oysters for members and guests. They will be eaten at the big Stag Night. All proceeds will go to Elk charities. OPEN HOUSE Monday is your, chance to get down to the Elks Hall and really meet the Elks. It will be open house for the Lethbridge general public from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Slides will be shown on Elks projects upstairs. Elks will be on hand in full regalia to answer questions about the order. There will be a $500 jackpot at the bingo Thursday, April 1, and other cash prizes. PRESIDENT'S BALL Festivities will begin at p.m. Friday, April 2, at the President's Ball designed to en- hance District-Day. Art Van of White Rock, B.C., grand exalted ruler of Canada, is invited. Andy Kapp, president of the Alberta Elks Association, will definitely be on band. Honored ladies, past honored ladies and all the colorful royalty of Purpledom will be present from six lodges, with the Elks, to welcome the public. Shelby, Mont., Elks are coming. Mayor A. C. Anderson will give the address of welcome. It will be a light - hearted, gay and splendid affair, if past Elks functions are any indica-ion. When the Elks do something, they do it up big. Another big affair is scheduled to take place Saturday, April 3 - a dance for all Elks and guests. South Alfoertans will be on hand, throughout the week, to pay tribute to their highly respected Elks. liar classes previously in other cities, and who recently took a special course from Dr. Robert Bradley in Denver, Colorado, who is one of North Americans best-known obstetricians. Mrs. Nordstrom said the joint expectant parents' course is becoming increasingly popular, especially since more and more husbands are assisting their wives in the delivery room. "It's one of the most exciting activities a man and his wife can be in together, yet so often childbirth is left only for the mother," she said. "You often hear husbands say 'I don't feel like the baby is mine, my wife did all the work.' We shove the men out of the way and when they see the babies later they say 'Tell me any one of them is mine and I'll believe you.'" With the LOC course the first step toward family - centred maternity care is taken, Mrs. Nordstrom said, and the whole family'can become involved. "The husband especially can become a part of the birth of his child, and is not left out of the excitement," she said. "The husband is also better-prepared then to coach his wife during delivery. "I wouldn't have a baby any other way - it's really a fun experience," said Mrs. Nordstrom, who has two children. She said her husband may help with a couple of the LCC sessions, particularly where the husband's role is stresed. Usually 10 to 12 couples are enrolled per course, although the mother will be accepted alone if the couple prefers. Mrs. Nordstrom said the last half of the pregnancy is the most useful time for the course, although women in earlier stages will be accepted. The various lessons will re move fears and apprehensions the couple may have about childbirth, by explaining the birth process and giving detailed information on pregnancy, labor and delivery. It prepares the mother for a better birth experience by providing exercises to help her to relax in the various stages of labor. Classes in general consist of lectures, pictures, films and group discussions. Topics covered generally win refer to the pre-natal time of childbirth, although Mrs. Nordstrom said she will answer questions whenever she can concerning post-natal care of infants. "The final examination In our course is a bit different than usual," said Mrs. Nordstrom. The final exam is having the babv." Assault brings fine Jay Harris, 26, 1143 Lakeway Blvd., was found guilty of com* man assault Wednesday in Lethbridge magistrate's court. Provincial Judge A. H. El-ford levied a fine of $100 or 21 days in default of payment. Mr. Harris was given one week to pay the fine, but in granting the time to pay Judge Elford said actions like this sometimes call for a jail sentence. "If the fine is not paid in the allotted time you will have to go to jail," he said. ANAF meeting The provincial convention of the Army, Navy and Airforce, Veterans in Canada, comprising the Lethbridge, Calgary and Edmonton units, will be held in Lethbridge May 22-24. Attending will be J. C. Lund-berg, domonion president of the Army, Navy and Airforce Veterans in Canada. SMILEY'S PLUMBING BASEMENT BATHROOMS REMODELLING Phone 328-2176 Officials of the beef- seminar said Thursday persons who have sent in registration for the seminar and have not received a n acknowledgment may be assured their tickets and day's materials will be ready at the door Saturday morning. Registrations for the day may also be made at the door Saturday morning. $50 fine A Lethbridge man was fined $50 in Lethbridge magistrate's court Wednesday, when he was found guilty of shop-lifting.
