Drive Ph, 328-7751 Batty revises parking Developer Art Batty said Fri- day his architects arc coining 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 t h e 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 the hotel development. "A number of people east of us who objected to the develop- ment have informed me that since they have seen the new 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 mors 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. CUFF BLACK, Certified Dcnto] Mechanic 1BLACK DENTAL LAB Lower Level MEDICAl DENTAL BIDS.

The committee discussed what agencies are involved in drug abuse, what their pro- grams are and what literature is available. It was stated that some wrong information is available. What is happening on the 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 Anybody interested In drug abuse and serving on the com- mitee, including the younger generation, is asked to contact Mr. Thacker.

Also in attendance at the Coaldale meeting was Dougla Miller, MLA, Taber Warner. Alvin F. Bullock, MLA, Card- Eton, attended the Cardston meeting. It is understood the cabinet committee will discuss the briefs with the cabinet and ap- propriate communications wit 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 tad met in the Cardston constituency. One previous committee meeting had been held in the Taber- Warner constituency. It was held at Taber several years City's financial position reported to be excel By JIM WILSON Herald Staff Writer Lethbridge is in an excellent financial position due to good account management and some good fortune, Tom Nutting, Lethbridge city manager told a joint meeting of the city public and separate school districts and city council Thursday. He said the city's habit of op- erating on five-year plans had given useful guidelines which, although not always completely fulfilled allowed city officials to know what had and had not been accomplished. The total city debt at present is Mr. Nutting said, "e s p e cially good considering the rate of expansion in Leth- bridge. Mayor Andy Anderson said the city had been "particularly fortunate" in the past few years because the amount of con- struction and new industry coming into Lethbridge has al- lowed the city's rateable as- sessment to increase rapidly enough to keep pace with c-jst increases. 'Other cities have not all been as the mayor said. Mr. Nutting said he was im- pressed, as a newcomer to Lethbridge with the co-opera- tion evident between school boards and the city. He listed such activities as the joint meeting, the community joint use of school facilities agree- ment and others. "This type of partnership should be continued, and ex- panded to become a partnershij with the city and school board co-operating in future plan- he said. Such future planning would involve organizing sports facili- ties, libraries, yi spo (outh agencies and programs and other com- munity affsirs so that the full- est and least-expensive bene- fits could be gained. Mr. Nutting said he could not yet offer the same detailed op- erating budget as had the pub- lie school board, but estimated the city's 1971 budget at "about million, SO per cent of which will consist of pay- roll." Rateable assessment will in- crease to about million in 1971, from million in 1070, he said. Lethbridge will enter 1971 What a difference, 62 above last year Oh, what a difference a year can make! Last year during Grey Cup day, Lethbridgeltes 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 snoirflurries. The mercury may struggle to five above zero today, drop to around 16 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. 28 Thursday. It was 22 below in Red Deer, 21 below in Corona- tion, 27 below in Vermilion and 22 in Rocky Mountain House. By the way, a temperature in 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 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, but ski conditions are also posr. A tentative opening date has been set for about the second week in December.

The 14 per cent increase would include additional rev- enue resulting from increased enrolments, plus debt charges paid by the province for new school additions. The district is also allowed an over-all increase of six per cent on each budget item, un- der current department of edu- cation regulations (included in the 14 per The tentative figures were released Thursday night by Dr. 0. P. Larson, public schools su- perintendent, at a joint meeting of the public and separate school boards and the city council. The largest single expen- diture will be for salaries, at about an increase of roughly 10 per cent over the 1970 figune. The increase will include a factor for new teach- ers, plus the normal incremen- tal raise teachers automatically according to their contracts plus an as yet unde- termined sum for the salary in- crease to be set in negotiations now underway. Dr. Larson apologized for be- ing vague about the figures in- volved since their disclosure could compromias negotiations. However, teachers are report- ed to be initially asking as much as a 15 per ceiit increase plus fringe benefits. For each per cent increase in teachers' salaries, about is added to the board's budget, and it is likely the settlement will approximate the 7.35 per cent increase agreed to last year. In addition, several new spe- cialists may be employed by the board including counselling personnel, an oral .French teacher and some library about Other tentative 1971 estimates, with the 1970 figures in brackets are: General administration, 300 employee bene- PHARMACY FACTS From O.

If the district finds it neces- sary, it would be allowed under a government flexibility factor to increase the supple- mentary requisition by up to 3.5 mills, but Dr. Larson said he hopes this move will be unne- cessary.
