Presents Views Appro? tre Committee Meeting es Plan Of North Side Pool Approval of the architect's sketch j plans for the North Side swimming j pool IMS expressed Wednesday evening at a meeting of the Civic Centre Committee, held in the council room in the city hall. Tbe architect was instructed to proceed with the working plans for the structure, and it was indicated that tenders for the construction of the pool and building mighs be out in approximately three weeks, the chair. Mayor A. W. Shackleford was in Considerable discussion also dealt the Civic Centre projects, too. and in that connection G. Sick of Seattle and A. G. Baalim were on hand for the portion of the meeting dealing with" the Sick Memorial Mr. Sick told members of the committee that his father had really had a loyalty only to Leth- bricge. Most, of the people with whom he had been associated in business in his early life were here, he said. Eis father had always to do something for the city, and when he was informed that had acquired the land in the barracks for a com- munity centre, he immediately fell in with the idea. Favors Snorts Centre Expressing favor of the idea that the donated money be put to use. not only for a swimming pool, but for an administration building to form the nucleus for a real sports centre. Mr. Sick urged committee members to take plenty of time to consider the matter thoroughly, in order that the centre be built to give the finest possible service. He pointed out- to them that it was not absolutely completed necessarv that it be immediately, while building: costs are very high. Baalim said that trustees for the memorial fund had felt that if the money was used exclusively for a pool, it might provide a facility that was used for only about six months of the year. In his own mind he said, he thought that it should be devoted to something that would be the keystone of the he thought it would have met with Mr. Sick's approval. However, it is necessary to keep in mind that people in the city had been asking for a swimming pool for many years, he cautioned.

The communication suggested: 1. That a minimum of six shale or "clav courts be constructed; the preferably to be of shaie. 2. That the courts be complete- ly enclosed with steel fencing. 3. That electric floodlignts, with pay meter boxes for night play, be installed. 4 That an unheated clubhouse with showers, toilet faculties, a small gas or electric stove, ana a club room be established. 5. That a practice board be pro- vided. 6 That the grounds be land- scaped to provide a wind break on the west side. With respect to the management and operation of the tennis court facilities the tennis club suggested that it be for the full use of aU citizens, with children under 16 years of age playing for noOuog Adults should pay a nominal fee. the letter suggested, contencong that the revenue received would be sufficient to cover all operating and maintenance costs, thus relieving the city of all expenses in that The "club expressed a willingness to operate the tennis facilities un- der the direction of the Ovfc Centre committee and the condi- tions which they suggestec. -With respect to tne North Sme swimming pool, the committee de- cided that dressing room, facilities for skaters be provided in the basement of allowing pro- per conveniences for the skaters who would be using the rink there tnaC WOUiO.
