S. _ PHONE 321-7121 Now Arriving: THE NEW EUROPEAN FALL EYE FASHIONS for 1973 Grant cuts in offing Money troubles growing for city T.hs provincial government's plans to reduce assistance grants to the municipalities is having its effect in Lethbridge where the city will operate for the first two months of 1973 without a budget. City Manager Tom Nutting says his administrat i o n "doesn't know what to expect" in the way of financial assist- ance from Edmonton next year. This year, the city received from the province in grant form, about eight per cent of the money required for the city's operation. That amount could be cut consider- ably in 1973. Municipal Affairs Minister Dave Russell said in the city last week municipalities should expect an end to unconditional assistance grants starting next year. A proposal going before the spring legislative session calls for a reduction in total grant money to million from million. Without knowing how much money Lethbridge will receive, the administration must work on the 1973 budget keeping in mind that adjustments may be necessary according to the amount of the grant. The operating budget, which will come out in Febrmry, esti- mates expenditures required for daily operation of the city and determines the amount of property taxes necessary to cover the costs. Indians consider ranch for boys A boys ranch for juveniles convicted of crimes is being eyed for the Peigan reserve by southern Alberta Indians. Band representatives from five reserves in the Treaty Seven area recently met on the Peigan reserve to study -he fea- sibility of sotting up the ranch as a possible solution towards fighting the high incidence of juvenile offences on Indian re- se-ves. Non-native resource persons, including representatives from social service agencies and the RCMP, acclaimed the propos- ed project as a "major step by native people towards the solu- ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC Schwartz Bldg. 222 5lh St. S.

Upon completion of the rehabilitation program, follow up services would be provided. Emphasis would be placed on providing a happy and healthy envi-onment Instead of institu- tionalization. While the project is still in [be development stage, organiz- ers say it holds "great prom- ise" as a native solution io na- tive problems.

Volunteers needed Community rinks possible You've got skates and the urge to use them, but there's no ice around when you want it. Your kids want to slap the puck around, but the big guys are always on the rink. The solution i a community rink. It will take some work on your part. Not much, however. The local community ser- vices department will give you all the assistance you need to flood part of a playground to create a rink. The only hitch, is jetting enough persons in the community willing to volunl ,o keep the ice surface clear of ;now. Bob Bartlett, community ser- vices director, says there is no ack of areas in the city where community skating rinks could be set up. His department would help maintain the ice surface and clear it after heavy snowfalls. JEWELLERY LTD.

"WHERE SALES ARI BACKED BY SERVICE" 614 3rd Avo. South Freo Sportsplex, pool., residence Dramatic developments in store for LCC area Some dramatic developments are on the horizon for the Lethbridge Community College. At different stages of discussion are a million sportsplex, a 50 metre swimming pool, a student residence and student union building and a residence hospital for the mentally handicapped. The sportsplex development is the closest at hand. The proposed complex would in- clude an indoor and outdoor ice basketball court, handball court, rifle range and other facilities. The college's share of the bill would be million while the city is expected to pay to rest. The city indicated recently it is prepared to get down to the nitty gritty of negotiations with the college on the proposal. Dr. C. D. Stewart, president of LCC, told The Herald following Wednesday night's regular board of governors meeting, that he feels confident the college can get a commitment from the government for the million within the next two or three weeks. The arena would be built on city-owned land adjacent to the LDS Church. The building of the arena is critical in the city's bid to host the 1975 Canada Winter Games. "As far as I'm concerned, work could start early next said Dr. Stewart. "H it does, the project should be completed in 1974." "I'm quite thrilled about Dr. Stewart said of the joint- use project. "If we are going to control government financ- ing, such things as joint-use projects are going to be the thing of the future." He said an arena would do a great deal to expand the pres- ent athletics program at LCC. The proposed swimming pool would be of Olympic size. Dr. Stewart said there are still a lot of details to be worked out. HOUSING A survey of college students is under way to determine whe- ther there is need for on-cam- pus housing. The study should be completed witliin a month. If it reveals a need for hous- ing, the colleges commission has set aside money for such a project, Dr. Stewart said. How- ever, DO per cent of the financ- ing would have to come through a CMHC loan. If everything goes smoothly, "We are probably a year away from turning the first said Dr. Stewart. STUDENT UNION The student's council at LCC has been saving money, gained mainly through increased stu- dent union fees, in an effort to finance construction of a stu- dent union building. Indications are that such a building would cost in the area of million. Meanwhile, there have been no new developments on the proposed hospital for the handi- capped on the LOG campus. The college has indicated It would be interested in entering into the project with the Lcth- dridge Association for The Mentally Retarded. The association has submitt- ed a proposal to its national body for construction of a resi- dence hospital in the city but no word has been received to date.

The LCC board of governors Wednesday night approved a request rom the Winter Games Committee that 40 classrooms set aside to accommodate the athletes in groups of 20 to 30 per room. While board chairman. Bob Babki expressed some concern that such a move was not real- ly part of the educational func- tion of the college, other board members felt the gains would outweigh the losses. "It would definitely serve in educational function by just having people from all over Canada staying here on the said Werner Sch- midt, academic vice-president. Dr. C. D. Stewart, president of LCC, said it would put toe college on the map. "People from one end of Can- ada to the other would know where the Lethbridge Commun- itv College he said. If the proposed sportsplex goes ahead, Dr. Stewart noted that practically the entire games would be held on LCC campus. COMPUTER ACCOUNTING AND MANAGEMENT LTD.
