Fred Colborne, minister of municipal affairs, has inform- ed the committee the money will be given to the Oldman River Regional Planning Com- mission to be released t. the study group. The commission has played an active role in co-ordinating the group's efforts and acting as liaison between them and the provincial governmeiii. The will be used K fl nance the committee's actr-'I ties. As yet the scope of thi study does not include any ma jor projects requiring larger amounts of funds. Several types of unitai, gov- ernment to replace the governments of the towns in the 'Pass are under considera- tion. Fred MacLeod, secretary of jthe study group, said the next step probably would be to have the physical assets of the towns assessed.

(READY-BASNES PHARMACY LTD. AVE. S., LETHBRIDGE Vlf- FOR FREE HOME DELIVERY No alarm in rabies situation Dr. William Dorward, rabies, diagnostic veterinarian aL the' federal Animal Diseases Re- search Institute at Lethbridge, says Aibertans should be con- cerned but not alarmed over recent reports of rabid ani- mals in the province. Dr. Donvard's statement fol- lows recent discoveries of rabid dogs near Edmonton and CJlgary, and a rabid coyote found south of Medicine Hat. Dr. Donvard said he has known for some time the rabies come to Alberta from Saskatchewan, where the dis- ease has been present..for sev- eral years. Alberta has bee.i rabies free for almost 12 years. The seriousness of the dis- ease cannot be over-rated, as a cure is possible only if treat- ment is given in the earliest stages of virus development. Once (lie symptoms of rabies arc evident, there is no cure and death is imminent. Dr. Dorward says there arc two forms of rabies, vicious and dumb. The vicious type is when animals go on the prowl, attacking people and other ani- mals. The dumb type is c h a r a c terized by paralysis. Animals inflicted with this form will not usually attack unless molested. Fortunately, all the cases re- ported in Alberta so far have been of the dumb variety. The disease may be control- led at least partly by vaccinat- jing domestic animals, {espe- 1 daily dogs and cats) against rabies. Vaccine is available from veterinarians throughout the province. Dr. Donvard urges people to exercise extreme caution when a p p r o a c h ing wild animals which display no fear of man, or animals that appear sick. Surplus of apartments suggested Although apartments may be difficult to find in Lethbridge right now, it has been predict- ed there could be a definite sur- plus next spring. One local developer, who has two 24 suite apartment blocks under construction, said that with the present rate of build- ing there may be more apart- ments than people next year. One of the two apartm e n t blocks will be partially open soon. About six suites will be ready Dec. 1, with the remain- ing 18 open in January. The other apartment should be ready for occupancy in April or May. One of the suites has been rented, and inquiries have been received on the others. Just how long it will take the new blocks to fill up depends to some extent on the availability of housing. A 27-suite apartment on Sce- nic Drive that began renting in August was filled in September. It will have two suites open at the end of the month. However, two other major de- velopments will be ready in the next month or so. Two 32 suite blocks are be- ing built on the east Lakeview area and these should be ready by Jan. 1. Only two of these have been rented so far. There are also plans for two more blocks in the same devel- opment, bringing the total to 128 suites. A downtown high rise is ex- pected to be completed by the middle of December, adding an- other 78 suites to those avail- able. Some 45 persons have already paid a month's rent in advance on the apartment and the rental agent says interest is Latest hotel plans shown by Batty The latest plans for a pro- posed million motor hotel complex in Shoppers' World were unveiled today. The plans, which had been requested by the city following a public hearing last week on the possibility of closing 4th Ave. S, to become part of the site, are to be presented to a special meeting of city council scheduled for today. Art Batty, president of Shop- pers' World1 Ltd., said he would be seeking approval for the project at today's meeting. A go ahead from the city was "urgently he said, to satisfy commitments to Holi- Minimum flows of rivers question for ORRPC meet The question of minimum flows in Southern Alberta rivers will come before the Oldman River Regional Plan- ning Commission again at Wed- nesday's meeting of the com- mission. A resolution asking for In- creased flows in four rivers has been passed by the commission and sent to various agencies and all levels of government. Replies to the resolution have been received from the St. Mary River Irrigation Dis- trict and the Lethbridge North- ern Irrigation District. It is ex- pected these will be under dis- cussion. The SMRID has already voiced its opposition to the commission's stand, claiming an increase in the legal mini- mum flows could seriously de- plete the reservoirs in the sys- tem in a dry year. The commission will also consider an application for membership from the M.D. of Taber. The M.D. is one of two not belonging to the com- mission at present. There are also two towns and 11 villages. NDP meeting Wednesday The Lethbridge New Demo- cratic Party Association will hold its annual meeting Wednesday night at 8 in the Labor Club. The association, which over- sees provincial and federal NDP Lethbridge riding mat- ters, is expected to elect a sin- gle executive for both East and West Lethbridge provincial con- stituencies. day Inn, who will operate the hotel. Mr. Batty said the project was "slightly over" the city's zoning bylaw density stand- ards, but close enough to seek approval for it. Each project must be evaluated individual- ly, he said. The city's bylaw requires a floor area of not more than hah" the site area in tine zone in which the hotel is planned. The present plan includes the closing of 4th Ave. Mr. Batty had no comment on what course of action would be taken if city council decides not to close the avenue. The plans displayed today stow traffic on 23rd St. re- duced to a minimum, with no entrances to the lot on the street. One of the major concerns at the public hearing held last week was the effect the de- velopment would have on traf- fic patterns in the Glendale strong in Lethbridge's first high-rise downtown. Other developments are In various stages of planning, with much of the activity concen- trated in the Scenic Heights subdivision, west of Scenic Drive in the 16th Ave. S. area. In addition to the one apart- ment already there, a building permit has been issued for an- other and two more have been approved by the Municipal Planning Commission. Another has been tabled by the commission while planning details are worked out. A sixth block is being planned, provid- ed the city approves a rezoning application by the developer. There have also been build- ing permits issued for a total of 47 suites since the beginninc of the year for various smaller de- velopments in the city. Seal fund at The Kinsmen TB Christmas Seal Fund reached 42 per cent of its objective Monday at the 13th opening of returns.
