Faulds Photo mo By JIM MAYI3IE Herald Staff Writer Conslinction should resume In about two weeks on the Heidelberg House motel on Mayor Magrath Drive, behind Phil's Restaurant, developer Henry Gretzinger said this morning. Bureaucracy has been cited as the reason for the delay. The basement for the project was poured last June but delays were encountered while city planners considered density standards along Mayor Magrath Drive, whether the motel could be connected with the restaurant and parking requirements. As tilings now stand, 94 parking stalls are required on the property lo accommodate the restaurant and 64 unit nine-storey motel. Surface parking is available for 70 vehicles. Regulations and restrictions are necessary to avoid a hodgepodge of development, constru Grelzinger said, but sometimes bureaucratic red tape can go a little too far, proving costly and frustrating. He cannot obtain a building permit to proceed with the project until detailed plans of an underground parking facility are approved. Mr. Gretzinger, a long-time developer of major projects in Lcthbridgc. felt a pilot plan should he sufficient to allow the motel development to proceed while detailed underground parking plans are being drawn up. Cost of the Heidelberg House will be close to million now, compared with about when the project was first proposed. Underground parking for 50 vehicles alone will cost an additional he said. If underground parking goes ahead, the property will accommodate about 110 vehicles, 16 more than required. One other way of gelling around the parking problem would be to cut the motel to eight storeys from nine. It has already been cut to nine from 10. In any event, engineers arc preparing full detailed plans of the parking facility and Mr. Gretzinger is hopeful conslruc-.ion can resume in about wo weeks. In the meantime, Mr. Gretzinger is preparing a site n downtown Lcthbridge for construction of a office building. Adjacent to the set Building, 515 7th St. S., the modern new building will feature split entry for the two levels, air conditioning and square feet of office space. The project is expected to be completed in three months. So far only the foundation permit las been issued. The city also came under fire earlier this week from Rae Goughnour, president of Rac-wood Motors, which is in the process of completing a new shop and salesroom project at 3rd Ave. and 14 St. S. He said the development cannot be completed because the city won't let him put in driveways and sidewalks along the west side of the building. "They want to establish the evel of the ground first, but nobody's been around from the city to do he said. A little faster action and more co-operation would make tile let of the developer muc i easier, he suggested. Art Batty, developer of Ho i-day Inn. also has some choice comments for the city.

Its believed the topic under discussion is the Byrne Rcporl on unrest at the Red Deer Com- munity College. Dr. T. C. Byrne, former dep- uly minister of education, was commissioned to conduct the inquiry in March. During the hearing, students called for (he dismissal of Dr. Mervyn Eastman, president of the college and vice-president, i Dr. Ronald Piters. The Byrne report was tabled in the legislature last week and today's meeting has apparently been called to enable Mr. Fos- ter to inform the college presi- dents of what is going to hap- pen at Red Deer. The appointment of a public trustee with no immediate cuts in faculty or administration is regarded as the most likely palii the government will fol- low. No highivay construction this year Tourist booth opens on weekend Southern Alberta's tourist: sea- son gets under way this week- end with the opening of tho Henderson Lake travel infor- mation booth. Frank Smith, Travel and Convention Association of South- ern Alberta says there is suffi- cient traffic flow to warrant tho opening. The timing of the booth opening coincides with the open- ing of the Waterlon Lakes and Glacier National Parks t h i s week. Continuing on a tourist vein, Mr. Smith said (lie Association for Historic productions planned re enactment of epi- sodes of southern Alberta's his- tory has resulted in a flurry of excitement from the Canadian Government Travel Bureau. For tho second time in less lhaii a month, highly placed travel bureau officials in East- ern Canada have called Mr. Smith wanting details that can be used in their internation- al tourist, promotion campaign. Evidently the Ottawa based officials feel the venture, known as The Sight, the Sound an Ihe Fury, can help attract many foreign tourists to Can- ada.

THE HERALD Legislature Bureau EDMONTON Widening and improvements to Highway from Lcthbridgc east to Medi- cine Hat and west through tho Crowsnest Pass are not among the priorities in highways de- partment spending for the coin- ing 12 months, Highways Min- ister Clarence Copitborne said in an interview. Southern Alberta in general will get only minor repair and expansion work in the S22.8 mil- lion highways budget approved by the legislature Thursday cut back 1.6 per cent from last year. "Highway number 3 isn't in too bad shape it's narrow, but I'd be crazy spending money there with some of the other work that needs said the minister. Improvements to Ihe South- ern Trans-Canada route have been pushed by the Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce and other groups as important to tourism and commercial devel- opment. Mr. Copithorne said high- ways in northern Alberta lead- ing to mineral and natural re- source areas have a far higher spot in government priorities at the present time. However, he said survey work will get under way for a bridge crossing to the west side at Lcthbridgc. There will also he improvements to roads in Ihe Cardston and Pincher Creek areas. In addition, repairs and im- provements to small sections of major and secondary roads will continue as usual. COLD FUR STORAGE Call 327-4348 for Free Bonded Pick-up Canadian Furriers Paramount Thcatro By RON CALDV.'KLL Herald Staff Writer The Alberta universities com- mission is in a hopeless posi- tion. Dr. Bill lieckel. president ol the University of Lcthbridgc said Thursday. In an address to the weekly meeting of the Southern Alber- ta Council on Public Affairs, Dr. Beckel said the commission was never given the authority o make the decisions that such a commission should be mak- ing. "It is strictly a formulating I body. They take a 32 and a seven and by usiiv a certain formula come up with a nine. They don't have to make the gut decisions ol said Dr. Beckel "Hopefully, we will see in (lie Wortli Commission report some recommendations that will j either make these bodies more j effective or do a w a v with them." Dr. Beckel told a questioner Ihat the problems facing uni- versities are not the kind that Car to the rescue: Members of the Kalispell Chamber of Commerce were "shocked" by the treatment they received by the RCMP near Fernie. There they were, driving down the highway in their cars, on a "goodwill" trip from their Montana homes. Doug Remick. a bank man- ager and, president of the Kalispell Chamber of Com- merce, described for L e t h- bridge Chamber members the embarrassing, harrow- ing, nerve-wracking experi- ence; "I was driving the lead car as we neared Fernie. An RCMP patrol car passed us, going in the opposite direc- tion. I asked my buddy what the speed limit was in Canada. don't have any s p e c d limits in Montana. I gianccd at the speedometer and was doing 68 or 69 miles an hour. Just then a big sign ap- peared on the highway say- ing the speed limit is 60. I saw the police car stop and turn around on the high- way. He had his red light going. He came after us. I slowed down to 00. I didn't step on the brakes because he would have seen my brake lights. He Followed us for awhile then pulled out beside us. The red bubble was flashing. A command boomed from car's loudspeaker telling us to pull over. I pulled over. "I've got a bad stomach. Ulcers you know. I reached for my bottle of Rolaids on the car seat and swallowed j two. Then the Mountie pulled over the car behind me. He was a big guy. In a very gruff voice he ordered me ouf of the car. Then the president oE the Fernie chamber came over to me, splitting his sides with laughter as he shook my hand. Vrtien we stopped for cof- fee in Fernie I was still shaking. What a welcome! Nobody has more fun than Canadians, except more Ca- you can ignore and they will go away eventually. "These problems will pass, but .something still lias to be done about he said. "The; university is no longer the privileged child of Dr. Beckel .said in issuing a challenge to the community to force the university to define honestly what the essentials of a university education are. He said the public is not well enough informed about the pur- poses of a university and "this is our We haven't done a good enough job of communicating uuli the public about what it is are trying to do, and we also haven't clone a good job ot letting the students know what is expected of them. The stu- dent of today just doesn't un- derstand what is expected of him." Dr. Beckel said. He said the student is com- ing to university without know- ing what he is coining to, so lie doesn't know whether he should even be there or not. "I believe right now. that we have far too many people going to university who should be go- ing somewhere else. Deep in my hear) T suppose T believe that a university education is superior to all other forms of education but, rationally. I know this isn't right." he said. Parents who think that the only thing there is for their children is a university educa- tion arc misi n f o r m e d about their children. He said (here must be a change in attitude on the part of parents. "The revolution that will come when people realize that a uni- versity education is not; forev- cryonc will result, in education costing less. You may see this within the next 10 lie said.

STUBBS While we stfll get an occa- sional call for "chamomile tea" or one of the other proprietary medicinal teas, it's been many years F'IICC the average person looked on tea of is med- ication. Tea, it- self, lias a rath- er interesting his- tory. The tea dunk is an d n bovcr- it-t c 111 y c.une irom China. The Chinese used it only for if.s medicinal value (as they believed) until 1 (he 6th century it finally j became llu'ir national drink. Over the centuries which fol- lowed, the list? of tea as a hev- U'i.igo spread over (he world. And it's interesting to note that oven the English, while now known as "The of tea drinkers'1 first used tea only as a medication. England didn't begin u.sing tea as a national j leverage until the middle of the fourteenth century. Why be like the man who jumped on hi.s horse nnd rode off in all direct ions?
