Drive Ph. 328-7751 Batty revises parking Developer Art Batty said Fri- day his architects are coming up with a new plan which will increase the parking area for his proposed million Holi- day Inn motor hotel at Shop- pers' World. H i s proposed development was turned down by the Mu- nicipal Planning Commission Wednesday largely on the grounds there was insufficient on-site p a r k i n g for the com- plex. "There are still some minor complications to overcome but I'm confident they can be over- come. "We have been absolutely amazed at the number of phone calls and personal visits made by people in all walks of life giving support to Uie hotel development. "A number of people east of us who objected to the develop- ment have informed me that since they have seen the now traffic flow pattern they are withdrawing their complaints. "A large majority of civic officials and aldermen sup- port the project and are en- thusiastically urging me to con- tinue with plans to build the hotel." A survey has shown there is a need in Lethbridge for 500 first class hotel rooms. "W i t h our Holiday Inn and Royer's Treadway Inn in down- town Lethbridge there is still room for another similar hotel in the city. I would support the development of any hotel to ful- fill the city's needs. The more there is, the more traffic is generated and the better it is for Lethbridge and tourism. Three charges bring fine A 28 year old Cook's Val- ley, California man, Bruce Remington, 28, was fined when he pleaded guilty in mag- istrate's court in Lethbridge Thursday to possession of marijuana. He was also fined for pos- session of a restricted firearm and for possessing an un- registered firearm. CLIFF BLACK, Certified Dental Mechanic BLACK DENTAL LAB Lower Level MEDICAL DENTAL BLDG.

The committee discussed what agencies are involved in drug abuse, what their pro grams are and what literaturi is available. It was stated tha some wrong information is available. What is happening on tlie drug scene was dis cussed. Each member of the commit- tee was assigned to determine what various agencies such as schools, churches, service clubs and governments are doing about drug abuse in an attempt to establish a co-ordi- nated program aimed at reduc- ing drug abuse. Once the various programs are determined, it is felt, it will be easier to see what gaps exist and what is required and can be done to fill those gaps. Another meeting of the com- mittee is scheduled for next week. Anybody interested in drug abuse and serving on the com- mitee, including the younger generation, is asked to contact Mr. Thacker.

It is understood the cabinet committee will discuss the briefs with the cabinet and ap- propriate communications will be made with those concerned through the MLAs. The briefs covered a variety of topics but many involved the matter of finance through pro- jects and improvements. It was the first time a cabi- net committee had met in the Cardston constituency. One previous committee meeting had been held in the Taber- Warner constituency. It was held at ago. Taber several years City's financial position reported to By JIM WILSON Herald Staff Writer Lethbridge is in an cxcellen financial position due to goo account management and som good fortune, Tom Nuttin Lethbridge city manager told joint meeting of the city publ and separate school distric and city council Thursday. He said the city's habit of o crating on five-year plans h; given useful guidelines whicl although not always complete: fulfilled allowed city officials t know what had and had been accomplished. The total city debt at presen is Mr. Nutting sai "e s p e daily good considerin the rate of expansion in Let] bridge. Mayor Andy Anderson sa: the city had been "particularl fortunate" in the past few year because the amount of coi struction and new industr coming into Lethbridge has a lowed the city's rateable sessment to increase rapidl enough to keep pace with cus increases. 'Other cities have not been as the mayor said Mr. Nutting said he was im pressed, as a newcomer Lethbridge with the co-opera tion evident between schoc boards and the city. He liste such activities as the join meeting, the community join use of school facilities agree ment and others. 'This type of partnershi should be continued, and panded to become a partnershi with the city and school boarc co-operating in future plan he said. Such future planning woul involve organizing sports facil ties, libraries, youth agencie and programs and other com munity affr.irs so that the ful est and least-expensive bene- fits could be gained. Mr. Nutting said he could no yet offer the same detailed op eratuig budget as had the pub lie school board, but estimate the city's 1971 budget "about million, 50 per cen of which will consist of pay roll." Rateable assessment will in crease to about million 1971, from million in 1970 he said. Lethbridge will enter 197 What a 62 above last Oh, what a difference a year can make! Last year during Grey Cup day, Lethbridgeites sunned themselves in a temperature of 62 degrees above zero. That won't be the case Sat- urday as Calgary Stampeders take on the Montreal Alouettes in Toronto in the national foot- ball final. There appears to be no sign of a letup in the cold, unsettled weather. An Arctic high pressure sys- tem wrestling with a Pacific low in B.C. resulted in about one half an inch of snow being dropped on Lethbridge Thurs- day night. The forecast today and Sat- urday calls for cloudy periods with some light snowflurries. The mercury may struggle to five above zero today, drop to around 15 below overnight with Saturday's high near zero. A biting north wind at 20 miles an hour is also predicted. Four Alberta centres set rec- ord low temperatures for Nov. 26 Thursday. It was 22 below in ted Deer, 21 below in Corona- ion, 27 below in Vermilion and 22 in Rocky Mountain House. By the way, a temperature in year the low 40's, above zero, that is is predicted in Toronto for Sat urday's Grey Cup game. No skiing just yet It appears ski buffs will have to sit on their hands a while longer, as neither West Castle Ski Resort, near Pincher Creek nor Snow Valley at Fernie is open yet. Ski lodge officials at West Castle report about six inches of snow at the bottom of the ski run and ski conditions are poor.They have no indication of an opening date. Snow Valley has more snow, about 46 inches at the top, bui ski conditions are also poor. A tentative opening date has been set for about the second week in December.

"This could result in serious curtailment of other city activi- ties because it would decrease our borowing authority consid- erably, Mr. Nutting said. He outlined a number of pro- to be approved by city council: A new library, costing about Repairs to Henderson Lake Swimming Pool in 1971; A new pool for North Leth- bridge in 1972; new reservoir in North Leth- bridge to service increasing in- dustrial demands.

In addition, million will be spent in 1971 in West Leth- bridge for parks and recrea- tion facilities, perhaps includ- ing a man-made lake; and about will be spent in 1973 and in 1975 on va- rious other West Lethbridge developments. 1971 public school budget cent rise wi s The Lethbridge publ school district's operating bu get for 1971 will be approx mately an increas of about 14 per cent over th 1970 figure.
