The AMFC allows a city to borrow up to per capita for capital projects each year. With those terms, the city could plan for pro.iects totalling about SB million. Finance director Allister Findlay says tte AMFC has been approached on the basis that certain growth areas, such as Lethbridge, are having "dif- ficulty living within the per capita limit." The city has sug- gested the restriction be elimi- nated and the borrowing capac- ity be pegged to the actual municipal requirements.

Mr. Findlay Carpenters upset over news leak By RUDY HAUGENEDER Herald Staff Writer The Alberta Provincial Coun- cil of Carpenters executive is 'incensed by The Herald publi- cation of yet unratified union demands. In a telephone call from an Edmonton hotel committee room, Albert Potter, council president, threatened legal ac- tion against The Herald unless the reporter who uncovered the story disclosed his sources. They said the documents the reporter obtained were from a "draft" copy as yet unratified by provincial carpenters. The council president prom- ised a thorough investigation on the information leak. Evidently there are only about a dozen draft copies of the contract de- mands in the province He said the council had learn- ed "a lesson" and would not re- lease draft copies to any of the seven locals of the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and University buys rare harpsicord MAKLENE COOKSHAW Herald Staff Writer One of 17th century Europe's oldest musical instruments has been purchased to grace the music department of one of Canada's youngest universities. The University of Lethbridge has become the owner of a harpsichord, a relatively rare instrument in the 20th century. Tiie harpsichord was purchas- ed three weeks ago from Sabat- hil, a Vancouver firm, for just According to Pro- fessor Louise Chapman, it has fascinated music students since then. THREE PLAY Both Miss Chapman and the other two members of the music faculty can play the instrument and plan to instruct students "as soon as possible. We are limited in what we can do by the size of the faculty." Miss Chapman said the in strument is a larger mode than usually owned by unniver sity music departments, meas uring eight feet by 3H feet "It's large enough to give reel tals on; most she said The instrument differs from a piano in that the strings are pluck, not struck with a ham mer, creating a sound which Miss Chapman described "akin to the guitar." DIFFERENT STYLE "You can't get the gradua increase or decrease in sounc like you can in a piano, and you can't prolong the sound The harpsichord requires a completely different style anc technique, a more articulatec finger action, rather than the varying weight on the keys necessary in playing a piano.

SONY LLOYDS DUAL NORESCO 1825, were built of wood, which warps easily. The plectrum, which plucks the strings, was a quill. Plectrums are now of plas- tic, and the frame is much more lasting, being constructed of metal. The model at the university, called Bach I, has a metal frame and a soundboard of B.C. wood. There are two key- boards, controlled by five foot pedals. The keys are of rose- wood and ivory-covered maple. "The harpsichord is exciting to have here; we can show stu- dents what instrument classical music was originally written for." she said. "They can hear the true sound created by the compos- ers. All of Bach's compositions were created for the harpsi- chord, and most people have never heard them played on Lethbridge people will have the chance soon. Miss Chap- man said a concert is planned before the end of the fall sem- ester. Joiners until ready to enter into negotiations with the contrac- tors. Replying to a question of how the carpenters would then ratify any agreement proposal, he. countered that they would and the news media wouldn't get any news releases. The so-called unratified draft proposal indicates the car- penters are looking for an per hour wage by 1976. They are also seeking a reduction in the work week from 40 to 36 hours. An Edmonton carpenters spo- kesman, not council representa- tive as mentioned earlier, said last week that there is room for compromise between the coun- cil, the bargaining agent for about Alberta carpenters and the Alberta Construc- tion Labor Relations Associa- tion representing of the province's contractors. The current union-contractor province-wide contract expires on March 31, 1973. Carpenters now receive S5.65 an hour. Louise Chapman plays the U of L's new harpsichord.
