Jill Watson and Dalyne Chemmensen used only snow, imagination and a few girlish accessories to construct her. She was named Mabel Ihe Snow Queen. ________________________ By KEN" POLE j EDMONTON A 63- j year-old building in the down- j town area has been turned into a "shopping centre" of sorts in a reversal of the usual pattern.
