By HERB JOHNSON A LOT of people have been wondering lately just what the world is coining to and what's happen- ing with all the new morality and how much the domestic sewer service charge is going to be. And it's time those questions were answered. But not in a direct, forthright manner. Obliquely is better. More traditional. Lets' start off by sketching in a little background and .establishing some kind of frame of reference., First, let's eliminate questions one and two. That leaves the sewer rate. We'll attack that question by mentioning, right off, that sewage has always been with us. It's not a new problem, but it needs new answers. Another important fact is the recent attempts by city council to come to grips with a review of the general plan for the city. And we must also make reference to efforts by a committee of council to take a good hard look at the arts in Let'nbridge. Putting all these facts together, we come up with a situation in which a body of persons (city council) is attempting to realign its thinking in two major areas sewage and the arts. It's much like the problem faced by the creative artist taking the materials at hand to create some- thing new and exciting. Council will take these things (among others) and integrate them into a new gen- eral plan for the development of a new Lethbridge. Lest the idea slip by them, it should be suggested (and here we get the point of the whole column) that they could solve a lot of problems in one fell swoop by subsidizing a training school for creative design and construction of imaginative new outdoor bath- room facilities. Think of it. A new industry right here in Leth- bridge. One that would allow room for the creative talents of untold numbers of local citizens. And the product would help bring the domestic sewer service charge down to a minimum. Who knows, perhaps Lethbridge could become known for its unusual architecture and its low sewage rates. Warm break may make it The cold snap may be break- Ing. The Lethbridge weather, of- fice reported this morning, there is a chance of some temperature moderation, as a warm air mass moves into southern Alberta from the Pa- cific.

The temperature record- ed by planes flying at feet this morning was 28 de- grees above zero. The warm air has dropped to ground level at Pincher Creek, where the mercury took a jump early to- day from two degrees below zero to 15 above. In the meantime, the Leth- bridge area is still under the influence of an artic high pressure area which will keep daytime temperatures near zero and overnight tempera- tures near 15 degrees below. Winds should be from the south 15. Moist upper air masses con- tacting the cold pressure sys- tem have been responsible for about 12 inches of snow that has fallen on Lethbridge since Nov. 1. Snowfall last night amounted to 1.8 inches. RCMP and city police report highways and most streets are in good driving condition.

WHERE HE LIKED TO BE Emi! Vsselenak, teacher and principal at St. Basil's School in Lelhbridge for the pasf 42 years, is surrounded by students at a special honor night saluting him for his service. More than 600 friends, students and relatives attended the evening of tribute. Mr. Vaselenak was presented with an engraved tray and rock polishing equipment by the St. Basil's Home and School Association, and an oil portrait from the students. Mrs. Vaselenak was presented with a boquer of roses. Mr. Vaselenak retired last June. 600 at honor night for E. S. Vaselenak The school auditorium was filled with people and the air filled with tributes as more than GOO gathered Friday night to say thanks to retired St. Basil's School principal E. S. Vaselenak. Mr. Vaselenak was an educa- tor in Letlibridge's separate school system for the past 42 years. He is a native-son of Leth- bridge, born in 1908, and one of 15 children born to an im- migrant coal miner. He attend- ed St. Basil's School through his youth, and worked for one year at the Lethbridge (Experi- mental Farm before deciding to pursue a career in teaching. He joined the staff at St. Basil's as a teacher in 1928, and in 1932 had the distinction of becoming one of the city's youngest principals. He was 24. Despite his newly acquired executive position, Mr. Vasele- nak was quoted then as saying, "Essentially I'm a teacher. I like to get right into the class- room." He obtained his bachelor of arts degree from the Univer- sity of Alberta in 1937, two years after he was married to the former Emily Robuliak. They have three children, Diane and Joan, both teachers living in Edmonton, and Del- bert who resides in Lethbridge. In addition to nis life as a teacher, Mr. Vaselenak found time for many community af- fairs. He served as secrcatry to the Lethbridge separate school board in 1947, on the Leth- bridge labor council in 1947 and Co operative Commonwealth Federation (CCF) candidate in the 1948 Alberta provincial election. He also served seven consec- utive years as a Lethbridge city a'derman, (1957-64) exe- cutive member of the Sunday School Athletic Association, chairman of educational com- mittee of the Community Coun- cil arid president of the Leth- bridge local of the Alberta Teachers Association. Mr. Vaselenak retired last June. CORN HARVEST HAS ADVANTAGE Although this photo was taken just before the recent snowfall, harvest- ing corn with snow on the ground is not uncommon. The ears are usually well above snow level and if the weath- er is dry, below zero temperatures are no problem. This on the Joe Kacer farm near Cranford yielded about 85 bushels to the cere. Farmers need between 40 and 50 bushels per acre to break even. Some acres of grain corn the first major commercial acreage in south- ern Alberta were contracted with about 30 farmers this year by Federal Grains ttd. Farmers received per bushel initial payment cdd will receive a final pay- ment. The corn was used tc.v livestock feed and in dis- tilleries. Mr. Kacer grew three varieties, Warwick St209, Mordon 67 and Mordon 68. A Federal spokesman said results of this year's production will be considered in plans for next year.

The renovations, estimated to cost will take about six months to complete, lie said, using mainly hospital staff to do the work. Detailed plans now arc being completed. A more precise cost will be known later. Of the estimated cost, is estimated for renova- tions to several wings win for equipment. The major problem in the renovations is plumbing with minor work being done to walls. The hospital is seeking a new psychiatric, wing. The p r o v- "nce, unwilling to go along with It at tliis time, agreed to grant lie hospital for renova- :ions to provide the interim jsychiatric unit. Cost of renova- .ions exceeding the will have to be paid by the hospital. The third floor of the north- west wing, medical 2 now is >eing used for the psychiatric treatment of patients as well as the treatment of medical ratients. Of the 26 beds i n 2, about 14 are used ir psychiatric patients. One room on the floor now s being used for electric shock Teatment; another room, the waiting room or TV room for )atients and visitors, doubles is a recuperation area for pa- tients who have received the shock treatments. The plan is to turn Medical 2 and adjacent rooms into the Jsychiatric unit. A room ad- jacent to the TV room, doub- ing as a classroom for student nurses, and as a group therapy room for patients, will be in- volved in the renovations. Medical 2 now has one room where patients can speak with :heir doctors in privacy. One or two other such rooms are to 3e added. One private room and an ad- jacent four-bed ward in Medi- cal 2 would become a cafeteria and occupational therapy room lor patients. As more medical beds are re- quired the second floor of the southeast wing would be con- verted from obstetrics to medi- cal. Obstetrics would move into 3ie northwest wing on that :Ioor, after renovations, occupy- rig the present labor and de- livery section. This section now averages about 114 cases a day. Labor and delivery then would move into the present nursery section above the main entrance to the hospital. Under the present set-up the nursery section is larger than required. The labor and deli- section is considerably larger than required. The n.abor, delivery and nursery COMPLETE CARPET AND LINOLEUM INSTALLATION HAMILTON'S FLOOR COVERING LTD. 909 3rd Ave. S.

The former restraining room for psychiatric patients on Med- ical 1, was deleted in June and made into a private medical room. It had screened windows, locked doors and recessed fix- tures. There are no plans for a similar room in the psychiatric unit. Initial renovations are to start in the present nursery sec- tion, then on to the labor and de- livery room, then to obstetrics and finally to Medical 2 to pro- vide a minimum of inconveni- ence.
