Dennis O'Connell, city director of economic development, reports at least seven other firms have applied for grants for development in the Lethbridge area. * * * The incentives program, while it is the frosting on the cake, cannot take full credit for the upsurge in industrial development in the Lethbridge region. Medicine Hat, also in the designated area, has only had one small development qualify for a grant. *   It has been suggested the real reason the Lethbridge region is doing so well is because it is capitalizing and promoting the esthetics, and more particularly, the educational facilities in Lethbridge. The University of Lethbridge, Community College and other facilities and services available in Lethbridge are likely responsible, to a far greater degree than the incentives grant, for industry locating here. If facilities and services were of little account, Medicine Hat would be getting a greater share of new industry. *   Ontario florists have launched a media and word of mouth campaign to get "please omit flowers" dropped from obituary notices. The campaign will stress the importance of giving flowers which "are a part of life and a symbol of love, peace and remembrance." JIM MAYBIE """WWII nitHBiWJ Local florists have discussed the problem but no campaign is planned. One florist says that the giving of flowers is a way friends of the family can tangibly express their feelings Often flowers are done up in such a way locally that after a funeral they can be distributed to senior citizens homes, the auxiliary hospital and nursing homes. One Ontario florist said he isn't against persons giving money to charity instead of sending flowers at times of bereavement. But, he said, many friends of the family don't give either flowers or money to charity. I think it would be a pretty drab funeral without flowers.    Cheques cashed against individual accounts in Lethbridge during December totalled $115.5 million, 98.3 per cent of the value of cheques cashed for the corresponding month in 1969, the Dominion Bureau of Statistics reports. Of the total, $102.8 million ($105.9 million in 1969) was against current accounts, $5.8 million ($6.1 million) against savings accounts and $6.8 million ($5.5 million) was against personal chequing accounts. Thirty - two of the 50 clearing centres showed a higher value of cheques cashed in the December comparison. Total value of cheques cashed was $78.5 billion, 14.4 per cent above the December, 1969 value. Cheques cashed in Quebec increased 23.9 per cent, Ontario 14.7 per cent, Prairie Provinces 8.6 per cent and B.C. 0.2-per cent. The Atlantic Prov i n c e s showed a decline Saturday, March 37, 1971 - THI LETHBRIDOI HERALD - 23 Weaker trend evident By AHT JOHNSON .Canadian Press Staff Writer. The pace was slow on Canadian stock markets this week as prices turned sharply downward. The Toronto Stock Exchange's volume dropped to 11.57 million shares from 15.90 million last week. And the exchange's Industrial index, a key indicator of market movement, lost 1.31 points to 182.51. I The decline Interrupted four consecutive weeks of advance. Analysts noted the downturn followed on the heels of sharp gains in recent weeks. Last week, for example, the Toronto exchange's industrial index advanced almost three points. Observers said some investors have become concerned about reports that the United States economic growth will not keep pace with federal government goals during 1971. At the Montreal and Canadian exchanges, the composite index dropped .30 to 179.51. And New York's Wall Street also showed the effects of erosion. The Dow Jones average of 30 blue-chip industrial issues, a widely-regarded indicator o f market movement, dipped 9.44 points to 903.48. N.Y. VOLUME SLIPS Volume on the New York Stock Exchange slipped to 71 million shares from 84.71 million last week. The Toronto Stock Exchange's industrial index closed lower during four of the week's five trading sessions, while the Dow Jones average slipped during only two sessions. Base metal issues showed a small decline during the week. The Toronto exchange's base metal index slipped .35 of a point to 96.01. The decline came after two weeks of sharp advance, during which time the base metal index rose more than five points. Observers said the stimulus behind the rapid rise during the twfrweek period was reports that Chile was experiencing difficulty meeting copper export contracts. President Salvador AUende of Chile wants to nationalize the country's copper industry. On index at Toronto, western oils were down .62 to 209.09 and golds rose 4.50 to 191.79. At the Montreal and Canadian exchanges, combined volume was 6.23 million shares, compered with 6.15 million last week. Losses outnumbered gains 223 to 173 with 112 issues unchanged. Egg marketing ruling sought WINNIPEG (CP) - The Manitoba government has filed an appeal with the Supreme Court of Canada to rule on a Manitoba court of appeal judgment declaring the province's proposed egg marketing regulations unconstitutional. Attorney - General A. H. Mackling announced at a news conference the government's decision to appeal the March 12 judgment. Mr. Mackling said the "prime purpose ot this move was to enable the Supreme Court of Canada to rule on the constitutionality of our regulation and by so doing - since Supreme Court rulings are national in scope - rule on the constitutionality of the Quebec plan." Quebec imposed trade restrictions on eggs last fail and the Supreme Court refused to hear an application by Manitoba to rule on the constitutionality of the Quebec restrictions. Mr. Mackling said the Manitoba government then drew up an order  in - council establishing an identical egg marketing plan for Manitoba and asked the Manitoba court of appeal to rule on its legality. "By appealing the Manitoba court of appeal's judgment, we are able to keep well within the legal bounds of prece- dence, " Mr. Mackling said. "AH we seek is a judgment and, should the Supreme Court not uphold the Manitoba court of appeal's judgment, then it will mean we are free to take all counter-measures we deem necessary to protect our industry and our agriculture. At least we will finally know exactly where we stand and be able to act accordingly." TRADITIONAL HOMES Traditional igloos are made from blocks of compressed snow fashioned into a circular structure.
