Find Out In The Herald's Next "CHINOOK" INCLUDED WITH THE TUESDAY, NOV. 28, ISSUE OF THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Financial problems could force symphony orchestra to disband By RON CALDWELL Herald Stuff Writer The Lethbridge Symphony Orchestra may be forced to hang a "going out of business" sign on the podium before too long. Lucien Needham, the orches- tra conductor, told The Herald he has heard rumors that the city is considering reducing its annual grant to the or- chestra. He said the orchestra is on such a tight budget that it needs every cent It can get. Mayor Andy Anderson said he doesn't think the orchestra's share of city contributions will be changed in 1973. "As far as I know, we are not thinking In those he said. "Howevec, if they made a lot of money and didn't need city support, they wouldn't get it." Last year, the orchestra fin- ished the season in the red. Mi1. Needham said, however, that he has heard from a num- Iwr of sources that the orches- tra may not get its usual grant next year. "This is an impending catas- he said. "The orches- tra likely could not continue without the money." The 48-member orchestra op- erates on an annual budget of nearly Mr. Needham said such a group should have a year to do the things it needs to do. NOT ENOUGH "We can't even afford to buy certain pieces of equipment which are badly he said. Mr. Needham said the Leth- bridge orchestra has been just getting by for years while or- chestras in other cities have been receiving sizeable grants from city council. The City of Hamilton, with a population of gives its orchestra a year while Kingston, Ont. donates a year to its orchestra. Kingston has a population of Mr. Needham said he esti- mates a reasonable contribu- tion from the city would be about a year but if the Lethhridge grant was calculat- ed on a per capita basis with Hamilton, it would be annually. Lawrence Leonard conductor of the Edmonton Symphony Or- chestra, said in a long-distance telephone interview Wednesday the Lethbridge group has achieved a remarkable stand- ard, considering the size of the city. "I was very impressed with the quality of the orchestra when I heard he said. "Even though it is still of ama- teur standards, it is developing very rapidly." Mr. Leonard said he has per- sonally written to the provincial government suggesting an in- crease in provincial support for the orchestra. "I would say its (the city grant) loss would be very seri- ous for he said. No parking, no Mr. Mike's ..An application from Bauer- Hupka Franchise Services Ltd. to open a Mr. Mike's Restaur- ant at 1020 3rd Ave. S. was turned down by the Municipal Planning Commission Wednes- day. The proposed restaurant site lacks enough parking spaces for a restaurant, the commission decided. A spokesman for Mr. Mike's, a Kelowna based restaurant chain, said most of the trade would be "walk-in" during the day. The restaurant would be catering to persons working downtown who could walk to lunch or dinner. Fewer park- ing stalls than at a convention- al restaurant would be need- ed, he suggested. Admission deadline Dec. 1 The deadline for applications for admission to the Unversity of Lethbridge spring semester is Dec. 1. Late applications for the sem- ester, which begins Jan. 9, will not be guaranteed, says Ray McHugh, assistant registrar of the U of L.

"There's no way it can be approved now for a restaur- he said, because of the parking shortage. ZONING BYLAW Parking requirements for new developments have caused problems for the MFC and de- velopers since the zoning bylaw was passed in 19G8. As a result, the MPC has turned the matter over to the Oldm an River Regional Plan- ning Commission for a detailed study. The formula for determining the number of parking spaces a business needs on its property should be changed, the com- mission members feel. FORMULA The formula now requires parking to be provided on the basis of 100 per cent occupan- cy. In other words, a business must provide enough parking for the maximum use of its facilities. For example, a restaurant must provide one parking stall for each 100 square feet of floor area. An office must be accom- panied by one stall for each 300 square feet of floor area. On olher MPC business, an application from Canada Safe- way Ltd. to build a supermark- et at 707 3rd Ave. S. was tabled until Dec. 1 for an agreement between the city and the com- pany concerning the city's sale of a lane on the property to be signed.

In setting the fine Provincial Judge Hudson told the young man. "Anyone who is turning juveniles on to drugs deserves to pay a higher fine." Usual fine for a conviction on the charge is about 5150. Mr. Ziefflie said that he had never offered the under-age girl any hashish but Provincial Judge Hudson replied, "No mat- ter what you say the possibil- ily that you might have still exisled."

Both the police and the judge objected and IK was until Jan. 31 pay the fine or be placed in jnil for Ihree months. Local costs eased The provincial has eased the municipal of health unit operating costs. Health Minister Neil Craw- ford Wednesday announced a grant to the prov- ince's health units. The money will be used to improve health unit services Province still unsure on RCMP celebrations Herald Legislative Bureau EDMONTON The provin- cial government still hasn't de- cided how it will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Moun- ties in 1973. Advertising agencies h a ve been asked to propose plans for the RCMP centennial, Bob Dowling, minister responsible for tourism, told the legislature Wednesday. Four advertising companies have qualified "and the deci- sion as to which agency will spear-head the RCMP centen- nial celebrations and what we'll be doing should be announced within the next few he said. Doug Miller (SC-Taber-Warn- er) asked if the government will re-create the North West Mount- ed Police barracks at Writing- On-Stone Provincial Park as part of the celebrations. Mr. Dowling said that was among a number of proposals. Premier Peter Lougheed said In an interview that proposals for the 1973 budget should be submitted by December for con- sideration when the budget Is drawn up in January. Frank Smith, executive vice- president of the Travel and Convention Association of South- ern Alberta, has criticised Mr. Dowling for leaving the RCMP celebration plans so late. Until the province announces what is planned, local groups cannot go ahead with local plans, he said. The celebrations will honor the formation of the force in 1873 and arrival in Alberta in 1874. The first Mountie fort was at Fort Macleod and the second at Fort Saskatchewan. government I and help defray municipal costs icipal share "that have become a great burden on their local financial resources." The grant, part of an annual supplementary grant given to health units near the turn of the year, was considerably higher than Southern Alberta health units had expected, they told The Herald. Introduced about five years ago, the supplementary grants are supposed to balance the provincial and municipal shares of the health unit operating costs. Originally the government was to pay two-thirds of the operating costs and the munici- pality one-third. The provincial share was based on a fixed per capita grant basis to all health units. However, since the scheme was conceived, municipalities find themselves paying the higher share because of in- creasing costs. There is n o cost increase clause in the provincial-muni- cipal scheme.
