The remainder of the 1.53- acre first phase will be staged over a three-year period.

Dr. Donald and Thelma Scambler of Edmonton, con- sultant in the social planning >ranch of the department of lealth and social development, were resource leaders at the workshop on pre retirement education, part of the Alberta 'ouncil on Aging Seminar held at the University of Lethbridge Thursday and Friday.

"They must not withdraw, whether for economic, medical or personal reasons." He spoke of methods of pre- venting medical disorders. The primary one, he said was to respond to all warning symp- toms. "Too many people consider pain a natural thing, some- thing to be lie said. "Don't ignore pain and try to be a hero." He cautioned those attending on the hazards of smoking, and improper furniture c a using back injuries. Dental care is important for proper nutrition and digestion, he said, and pro- per care of the feet and legs was especially urged. "The feet are just as largo a factor as the heart in incapa- Constant exercise needed to keep body in good shape citating the he said. The question of how people could be educated to use their leisure hours well when a shorter work week was brought in was raised. Mrs. Scambler responded with a suggestion that people must learn to find value and enjoyment in all extensions of their lives and not consider employment as the solo source. She encouraged the advance- ment of education for living in public education courses rather than specific training skills. Retiring employees "For every year of non-ac- tive living it takes a month of regular, carefully conceived exercise programming to bring someone back into said Dr. Jim Day, department head of the department of phy- sical education at the Universi- ty of Alberta. Dr. Day was speaking on recreation for senior citizens to 100 participants in the Alberta Council on Aging Seminar held Thursday and Friday at the University of Lethbridge. "The evidence is too strong to be ignored that the physi- cally active person is doing himself a he said. "Fit- ness is important to us all. "Most of us tend to think of physical fitness in terms of ex- tremes. Because you are un- able to do what you did ten years ago docs not mean that j 1 1 you are not or can not be fit."

The proposal is the main sub- ject for consideration at Mon- day's special meeting of coun- cil. A decision will likely be made at that time to make available for sale between 50 and 80 lots with a price range of to per front foot, serviced. The initial phase will cover 153 acres, likely with stricter zoning standards than exist on the east side of the Oldman River. City Manager Tom Nutting said in an interview there will be a heavy initial cost to the city, this year on top of the S3 million already invest- ed in West Lethbridge. By 1075, the revenues from the sale of land will exceed expenditures, he said. Included in the capital out- put this year is for ser- vicing and land development, for a storm sewer out- fall, a water line to the reservoir, for green strip development and administrative expenses. The latter expense will be for salaries for four new city em- ployees, to work directly with a "West Lethbridge project team. A project co ordinator and secretary, landscape architect and engineering draftsman wil! be hired. The project team consists of Mr. Nutting, Erwin Adderley, executive director of the Oldman River Regional Planning Commission, R a n dy Holfeld, city engineer, Bob Bartlett, director ol communi- ty services, Oliver Erdos, util- ity director, Wayne Quinn, as- sistant to tlie city manager and Simon Ho, associate planner for the ORRPC. Another expense planned for this year is for a brook- to be dug from the lake, west of phase one, under University Drive to a reservoir at the University of Lethbridge. The brook will be polyethylene- lined, winding through a green strip, with a gravel bed. Its source, a 27 acre lake, will be developed beginning in 1973 with an initial expenditure of and each year for the following two years. The lake size has been re- rluced from the originally- planned 37 acres. Mr. Nulling said more fill will be taken from the lake than would have been under the 'initial scheme, and "the fill will not just be dumped." It will be used in lot and park development to vary the contour of the land, he said. The administration also pro- posed 5150.000 be allocated (his year for design of a bridge to the west side. A June meeting with Premier Lougheed or the provincial cabinet to set up a time table for design and con- struction of the bridge has been recommended. The possibility of erecting a temporary Bailey floating bridge is being studied. Mr. Nutting said if council approves the proposal, "the laxpayers will not pay one more cent for development" across the river. Financing, ex- cept for water trunk improve- ments, which will come from users' fees, and bridge con- I struction, will come from land sales.

City staff and the Aibcrla Housing Corporation arc in the process of conduct- ing a market survey to con- firm that growth. Growth of the city could go in three directions, Mr. Nut- ting said: to the south, to the north and to the west. He said a report is being prepared to indicate it is more economical to move to the west. The expressed intentions to create a high quality village- neighborhood development are qualified by Mr. N u 11 ing. "High quality does not mean high price.'1 The average lot price will be per front foot for sen-iced land.
