Council presented Mr. Taylor with an amended proposal by which Uie proposed access would be lined up with 49th SL. It would not greatly interfere with through traffic, coun c i 1 said. The earlier proposal, not ac- ceptable to tlie department, placed the access midway be- tween 50th Ave. and Highway 36.

Wide-Op en Shopping Hours Wiu Nod CRANBEOOK (Special) Merchants' plans for Christinas shopping hours have been scut- tled by an unexpected city move. Recent controversy arose over unlimited hours continuing at a Cranbrook St. shop, form- erly outside city limits, whose floor space did not conform with expected areas for the Shops Hours Bylaw. Resulting talk among Ihe 1M merchanls led council to decide in mid- October to field a new bylaw rescinding all shops hours reg- ulations in force. A substantial committee of city centre merchants sent Mrs. Doris Barkman to city council with a small delegation this week delaying the wide- open regulations until m -i d- January when they might come up wilh some constructive pro- posals for new regulations. Council split evenly on Hie proposed postponement and Mayor M. G. Klinkhamer cast the deciding vote against the delay. Consequently Ihe wide- open hours bylaw received its required lliree readings and will be enacted Tuesday wlih final reading. Mayor Klinkhamer told Mrs. Barkman that if a clear ma- jority of merchanls could agree on future hours regulations the matter might be discussed again in early April.

Dak. A year earlier the sile had been part of almost impene- trable stagnant lodgepole stands 52 years growth that had follow- ed a major forest fire in 1918. Clearing the site, wliich still continues, provided the original resource for the penta chloral- phenol treated posts and poles to start the cciiiflijous prcdnc- ion at the rale of about four railway carloads a day. Company resident designer and manager is Lorenzo Lucier of Yank. His assistant is Ray Brost o[ nearby Creslon. The site is Hanked by High- way 3 and the Movie River and Highway D5 some 10 miles from the U.S. border. It has its own 700 foot rail- way siding just south of the point where the Crowsnest line of the CPR branches to join the Spokane International at Eastport, Idaho. The acreage has been clear- ed at two levels, joined by a short road. The bench alongside the railway siding provides backlog space, and is location for the barker peeler and cut- off saw and sorter. The posts are strapped ac- cording to predetermined lengths into bundles loaded on a trolley which slides into the horizontal treatment tank at the lower cleared yard. Wood re- source used is limited to four to eight inch diameisr lodge- pole pine. Natural gas tired boiler is co-ordinated with the tank of emulsified oil and chemical in an adj o i n i n g tank between bench and plant level and a few hours in Uie sealed treatment cylinder under pressure treats the sapwood almost to the heart- wood. The steaming strapped bun- dles then are hauled out on the Irolley and are immediately ready for shipping in their orig- inal bundles. Though untreated cedar is reputedly longest last- ing softwood, the treated pine posts and poles will resist de- terioration (or a half to a full century Mr. Lucier says.
