"HONE THE 327-0240 LOTUS Across From The CPR Depot Lethbridge Centre theatres may be leased to Shackleford By ANDY OGLE Herald Staff Writer An unconfirmed report this week indicates lease of the twin theatres being constructed in Lethbridge Centre will go to A. W. Shackleford's Lethbridge Theatres Ltd. Mr. Shackleford, who has operated movie theatres in Lethbridge since he started managing the Kings Theatre on 5th St. S. in 1921. would not comment on the report. "I can't say anything about it at this said Mr. Shackleford. Bob Jones, lease manager for Lethbridge Centre was un- available for comment. Lethbridge Theatres, also known as Majestic Theatres Ltd. through its partnership with Famous Players, operates all four movie out- lets in the city the Paramount, Paramount Cinema, and College Cinema and the Greenacres Drive-In Theatre. But while this constitutes a monopoly situation, it does not really limit the diversity of movies shown in Lethbridge, says an independent movie theatre operator in Calgary. "Every important picture that's made plays in said Hector Ross, owner of Canfilm Screen Services which operates nearly 40 theatres in Western Canada. "Some people feel it's a monopoly because there's only one circuit, but Shack does better than 90 per cent of the exhibitors in Canada. "I have nothing but respect for him. As an exhibitor he's one of the finest in Canada." Mr. Ross said he had been approached about the Lethbridge Centre twin- theatres, but dropped it about nine months ago. "We're not quite ready for Lethbridge he said. "I feel that with five, Lethbridge would have more than enough theatres." Mr. Ross added that because Lethbridge Theatres Ltd. is part of the Famous Players chain does not mean it gets only movies distributed through Famous Players. "He's one of the few Famous Players partners that calls the Mr. Ross said of Mr. Shackleford. Meanwhile Jim Moore, the district manager of another large movie theatre chain in a telephone interview from Calgary he had never been approached about the new theatres being built here. Urban research body expanding membership A group with the resources to be credible will be listened to when government bodies make planning decisions, an official of an urban research group said Friday in Lethbridge. Such a group will be listened to to the extent it represents a cross-section of opinion, said Doug Rigby, a research of- ficer for the Canadian Council on Urban and Regional Research. He had earlier told a meeting at the YMCA that the Man dies in city police cell A 43-year-old Prince Edward Island man who had been put in a city police cell overnight for intoxication, died in his sleep sometime after 2 a.m. Friday morning, Polic-e Chief Ralph Michelson said today. The chief said an inquest will probably be held, but Coroner Dr. Norman Baster was unavailable for comment. Chief Michelson said the autopsy report indicated the man. Leslie Bradford Cole, died from the combined effect of alcohol and drugs. The man. say city police, was picked up Wednesday. hcid overnight for be'iig {irunV and released si the mor- ning Hf was apparently see- ing a doctor who prescribed some dnig.s for treatment. council had voted last month to expand its membership to the public. Formed in 1962 as a non-profit organization, it had been limited to 60 members. Forty were invited to join and 20 appointed by the three levels of government. Now, individuals can join for a fee of a year, and in- stitutions such as governments, universities or planning commissions for a year. Each member has one vote, he said. The council acts as a clearinghouse for infor- mation, sponsors research projects and seminars, and publishes an annual bibliography of urban plann- ing documents and research. It has a staff of seven and is funded by the urban affairs ministry. The council's impact on planning decisions will depend on the response of local members, he told The Herald. It's not a government body, so there is hope it can oppose government decisions and be listened to. PENNERS PLUMBING 1209-2nd Ave. S.

Bill Broad, president of the Civil Service Association of Alberta, said the provincial government has "completely ignored" a safety report finished by the Workers' Compensation Board in April. Nothing has been done yet, he said in an interview. CSA asking Syhat's essential By MURDOCH MACLEOD Herald Staff Writer "Essential service" is a term no one really under- stands, but it's tossed around anyway, the president of the Civil Service Association of Alberta said Friday. All government is a service industry, whether the service is providing liquor, keeping people in jail or watching over the forests, said Bill Broad. But there is another side to what services are essential, he said in a Herald interview. The employer has to be responsible for making sure the service is provided, he said. Police are well-paid and do not strike. Forestry of- ficers and game officers per- form similar jobs, without the higher pay, said Mr. Broad. The Alberta Liquor Control Board is not an essential ser- vice, and no one suffered when ALCB employees went on strike, he said. MOVING? CALL OWEN AGENTS FOR ALLIED VAN LINES Yet the strikers were ordered back to work. "We were thoroughly dis- gusted said Mr. Broad. The CSA is pleased with the wages of direct employees of the government, though it took one or two strikes to get them, he said. Pay for a cor- rectional officer class one has gone up 34 per cent since the last contract, women working at the Raymond Home get 36 per cent more. They now get the same as men doing the same jobs. Mr. Broad indicated some problems still exist with boards and agencies whose employees work for the government indirectly. GIVE US HALF OF YOUR LUNCH HOUR... and we'll give you a better afternoon.
