I A previous proposal would have allowed stores lo close ci- retail stores remains a quK- thcr at orTp.m. lion mark as far as official..... city policy is concerned. City council Monday failed to make any decision on the pro- posed closing of shops bylaw, but illustrated that the matter is certainly controversial. After what was scheduled as a closed meeting was finally opened to the public, council spent two hours modifying and deleting clauses in the pro- posed bylaw. Although no offi- cial action was taken, it ap- peared to be Ihe consensus of council that the city solicitor should redraft the bylaw, in- cluding the modifications and deletions, for consideration at a regular meeting Nov. 22. One action council did lake was to defeat a motion by Ald- erman Vaughan Hembroff that the city solicitor draw up a by- law repealing the existing clos- ing of shops bylaw, which j would leave no regulation at! all. Aid. Hembroff said: "We in- terfere too much in the affairs of business" and that council was "holding itself up to pub- lic disrepute and ridicule by dealing with this matter at such length." His appeal had little support, as six alderman and Mayor Andy Anderson voted against the motion. Aid. Ed Bastedo voted in favor of repealing the Wednesday. Another change would allow corner stores to remain open from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. The previous proposal included places of amusement, such as golf driving ranges and riding stables and tourist facilities in that classification, but council decided to delete them from the bylaw. Council got as far as recom- mending that 19 businesses cut of 74, which were included in one section of Mie proposed by- law be excluded from regulation. That part of the bylaw lists (he kinds of businesses which will be required to adhere lo the maximum six days and two nighls shopping formula. With that, council volcd to rCf turn to closed session lo dis- cuss mailers concerning the 1972 budget. As it stands, it appears coun- cil has at least accepted the new hours for retail stores, in- cluding open Wednesday after- noons. What remains, and what will be debated al least one more time when council meets next Monday, is for a decision to be made on definite classi- fication of the various enter- prises in Ihe city so thai a by- i law will be enforceable. quota lor Cup of Milk bylaw.

The money, contributed to the annual campaign of tire Uni- tarian Service Committee, would be used exclusively for milk, it is hoped.

The announcement of the 1971 objeclive and purpose is made following the annual visit to Lethbridge of Dr. Lotta Hitsch- manova, USC executive direc- tor. She spoke to the Leth- bridge Rotary and Green Acres Kiwanis clubs Monday, and was interviewed by television and radio stations.

The extent of the tragedy is beyond calculation, even com- prehension. One estimate is that all children under the age of six will probably die in the make-shift camps In her service club talks Dr. Hitschmanova spoke of the "ac- cidents of geography" which gave these people such a fate and which gave her Canadian audience a land of such pros- perity. She said it was impos- sible for people who had never known hunger to appreciate the predicament of the refugees. She spoke of the grown of the USC, its wide base of support from hundreds of thousands of individuals, its emphasis on having local agencies have a big hand in distribution, and the close attention to detail and ef- ficiency through her own an- nual inspection of the hundred- odd projects with USC partici- pation. Dr. Hitschmanova is totally committed to this cause and does not spare herself in an al- most superhuman effort to achieve positive goals. In the face of such human misery, positive results seem minimal. But the work must go for- ward, if spurred only by faith, not reason.
