West side sale nears halfway after one week Lazy Oldman Club plants 700 trees The Oldman River, 'just west of the city, may seem tranquil now as it waits for the annual spring runoff. But tthis year the spring runoff will be very low due to the small snowfall during the past winter. Under an inter- provincial agreement, half of the capacity of the river is committed to Saskatchewan and another 40 per cent to Alberta. That could create shortages if the amount of water generated throughout the Oldman River system this year is as low as predicted by some officials. A local club which received 700 trees from, the provincial government has planted them on the north side of the city. The German Canadian Club planted the trees Monday on five acres of property at 9th Ave. and 6th St. N. The 300-memiber club hopes to eventually develop the property into a park.

He was in Lethbridge Fri- day to present a Canada Win- ter Games flag and letter of congratulations from Saska- toon Mayor Bert Sears to Mayor Andy Anderson. Mr. Sebestyn also had similar let- ters from Senator Sidney Buckwold, who was mayor of Saskatoon when the games were held, and from the president of the Saskatoon Games Society. Sen. Buckwold in his letter Discussing his month-long stay on the Sde Boqer kib- butz in Israel, Lethbridge resident Nat Herman said simply, but eloquently, "They have made it into a garden of Eden." What makes Mr. Herman's conclusion unique is the fact that the long-time recently- retired Lethbridge circulation manger for the Calgary Al- bertan has been blind since childhood. Mr. and Mrs. Herman, of 816 12th St. A S. went to Is- rael primarily to visit their daughter and son-in-law and four grandchildren who live on the Sde Boqer kibbutz. They had time as well for some fascinating side trips. Mr. Herman was enthusi- astic about the kibbutz where his son-in-law is in charge of all its irrigation.

Phone 327-3276 ex-premier of Israel, David Ben-Gurion, it was all sand and said Mr. Herman. A five-year drought 20 years ago forced the early settlers on the kibbutz to begin an irrigation system. Large tanks to gather water were set up on Mt. Galilee, then pipes were built to carry the water hundreds of miles to Sde Boqer. Mr. Ben-Gurion, premier of Israel from 1948 to 1961, has retired to Sde Boqer, the kibbutz he began. Four sol- diers, armed with machine guns, guard the 84-year-old ex-leader day and night. Mr. and Mrs. Herman met Mr. Ben-Gurion during their four-week kibbutz stay. Life is not without danger for the ordinary inhabitants of these settlements close the Egyptian border, or in the Sinai peninsula. Guards pro- tect them on a 24-hour watch basis. Mr. Herman said of the men at the kibbutz that many were ex-paratroopers. A re- sumption of war in the Mid- dle East would mean that these men at places like' Sde Boqer would be called up first. Since it is in the Israeli government's interest to have newly acquired territories settled, it gives a generous amount of aid to each new kibbutz. Southern Alberta to' "top" building a mountain.' Mr. Sebestyn, who also met with memebers of the Leth- bridge-Southern Alberta 1975 Canada Winter Games Soci- ety to talk over the problems Saskatoon met and overcame in staging the 71 games, said Lethbridge and Southern Al- berta set a precedent by the very nature of its regional bid, which was one of the rea- sons it Tvon. Speaking of some of the dif- ficulties that will be faced, Mr. Sebestyn said one of the hardest tasks is maintaining momentum and enthusiasm over the two years leading up to the games. "After the awarding of the games, there is a rush to or- ganize, which is fine in some areas, but others turn out to be over-organized and people have nothing to do, he said. "A n d after committees have been working hard for a year or so, you seem to hit a letdown, a period of uncer- tainty when you wonder if you are doing the right things and whether or not you are reach- ing the people." "Then, as the games draw near, you suddenly find your- self deluged with .people want- "But in the end almost everyone gets involved in one job or another, because there is so much to do." Mr. Sebestyn said the Sas- katoon Games had its share of unbelievers and people who took a facetious attitude to- wards the whole thing, in- eluding the wags who sug- gested the mountain be built from the piles of surplus grain that existed in the province at the time. But all events were sold out and instead of the admissions estimated by the budget committee, there were 160.000 paid admissions, he said. Part of this was a result of the weather which was per- fect sunny skies and rela- tively mild temperatures for the entire 10 days but was also attributable to promotion of the games primarily in Saskatoon and within the province, he said. Mr. Sebestyn said the Games group here seems or- ganized and well on its way, and pledged the Saskatoon people will continue to do ev- erything they can to help. Sale of West Lethbridge lots is nudging the halfway mark after the first week of marketing. A total of 41 of the 101 lots available have now been sold including the majority of the choice lakeside lots. The city is putting up show homes on the other seven lots. Tom Band, city property administrator, said Friday 20 of the 26 lots off of what is now known as Victoria Rd., the properties closest to the lake, have been sold. Construction of the brook from the lake to a University of Lethbridge reservoir is now underway and digging of the lake itself is expected to begin shortly. When com- pleted water will flow from a nearby irrigation channel in- to the lake and the brook to the reservoir. A new set of street names for West Lethbridge will be discussed at a meeting of the street naming committee Monday. The current crop of names including MicGill Boulevard, Trinity Ed., Acadia Boule- vard, Victoria Rd., been regarded as temporary, and have been used as reference points only. They are named after universities. Peter Bowkett, city traffic engineer who is chairman of the committee said the streets will be named as in other subdivisions in the city according to a theme chosen for the subdivision area. The remaining west side lots in the area to be de- veloped this year will con- tinue to be sold on a first- come-first-served basis at city hall. Mr. Band said construction of homes could begin by July 15 after all the services in.

Back to his job as animal nutritionist at the Lethbridge Research Station this week, Dr. Hironaka was the Rotary member from district 536 who led the group, which included University of Lethbridge food services manager Bob Pow- lesland, to Osaka. The men who participated in the exchange were select- ed from applicants from Al- berta, western Saskatchewan, the Yukon and the Peace River block of, British Colum- bia. Dr. Hironaka said the idea of the exchange is to create good will and understanding between people of different countries. In May of 1974. one Rotarian and five non-Rotar- ians from Hie Osaka and Wak- ayama districts will conclude the exchange, visiting here. The business and profes- sional men from Canada were greeted at Haneda Interna- tional Airport in Tokyo by two Rotarians and for the en- tire six weeks, the group spent different days with dif- ferent hosts and families throughout the Osaka district. During a one-week period, each man was able to visit businesses and professional persons working within his particular field. The tremendous crowds of people in the cities, the im- mensity of industry, the beau- ty of the gardens and the friendliness of the people were the outstanding features of the trip, according to Dr. Eironaka. Dr. Hironaka, a Canadian with Japanese ancestry, sur- prised some of the people hi Japan.
