Business outlook good TORONTO (CP) The Cana- dian Imperial Bank of Com- merce looks for a "com- paratively high level of business activity in 1873." One of the reasons for this op- timism, the bank says in a com- mercial letter, is the broad eco- nomic recovery in the United Stales since late 1971. "However, some restraining influences in Canada and the United States may come into the picture before the end of 1973." The bank says these may in- clude some restraint in fiscal policy and some tighlening in monetary policy. Such meas- ures would help contain the rate of inflation but would also dampen the growth in produc- tion. "There is a possibility that fiscal and monetary policy changes in the same direction may take place in Canada next year, although a marked shift in policies would raise more dif- ficult problems for Canada be- cause of the higher level of unemployment."

Elk Valley site chosen NATAL (HNS) The Fernie school board has decided to seek permission from the de- partment of education to pro- ceed with negotiations for a school site in the Elk Valley. The site is across the Upper Elk Valley Road from La Cuislnetle, just across the Wil- son Creek Bridge. It is o w n e d by Mrs. C. L. Nearing and has been offered to the board at per acre. Consideration of Ihis site was made following objections to the Sparwood Development Company site. There was also failure in negotiations for other properties in the Elk Valley. The site is approximately square feet in size and has a bench which is large enough to accommodate the school and extensions which might have to be made to the building at a future dale. The lower land provides ade- quate play area for the school. It is about six-tenths of a mile from the student popula- tion cenl-e of the Elk Valley Trailer Court but the width of the Wilson Creek Bridge and the high incident of traffic on the road will mean that stu- dents will have to be bused lo the site. Initial plans are for the school to accommodate all ele- mentary students from the junction of the Elk Valley Road with Highways 3 to Brule Creek at the north end of the valley. Secondary school students will continue to go to the Sparwood Secondary School. Five named to commission NATAL (HNS) Dislricl of S p a r w o o d's new recreation commission has been appoint- ed.
