Drivo Ph. 328-7751 You Ask Me By HERB JOHNSON A LOT of people have been wondering lately just what the world is coming to and what's happen- ing with all the hew 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 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 Pmeher 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 lias fallen on Letlibridge 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.

Vaselenak The school auditorium was filled with people and the air filled with tributes as more than COO gathered Friday night to say thanks to retired St. Basil's School principal E. S. Vaselenak. Mr. Vaselenak was an educa- tor in Lethbridge'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 lor 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 Letbbridge. In addition to his 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 Letli- 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 alderman, (1957-64) exe- Icutive member of the S'unday School Athletic Association, chairman of educational com- mittee of the Community Coun- cil and 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 wsalh- er h dry, below zero temperatures are no problem. This field on ths Joe Kacer farm near Cranford yielded about 85 bushels to the acre. 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 contacted with about 30 farmers this year by Federal Grains Lid. Farmers received per bushel initial payment tmd will receive a fina! pay- ment. The earn was used iff livestock feed and in dis- tilleries. Mr. Kacer grew three varieties, Warwick S1209, Mordon 67 and Mordon 68. A Federal spokesman said results of this year's corn production will be considered In plans for next year.

The renovations, estimated to cost will take about six months to complete, he said, using mainly hospital staff to do the work. Detailed plans now are being completed. A more precise cost will be known later. Of the estimated cost, is estimated for renova- tions to several wings wiu would be combined in the ren- ovated north extension of the hospital. 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- room, then to obstetrics 000 for equipment. and finally to Medical 2 to pro- Tbe major problem in the vide a minimum of inconveni- renovations is plumbing with ence. minor work being done to walls. 1 The hospital is seeking a new psychiatric, wing. The p r o v- ince, unwilling to go along with it at this time, agreed to grant Hie hospital for renova- tions to provide the interim psychiatric unit. Cost of renova- tions exceeding the will have to be paid by the hospital, The third floor of the north- west wing, medical 'I now is being used for the psychiatric treatment of patients as well as the treatment of medical patients. Of the 25 bests i n Medical 2, about 34 are used for psychiatric patients. One room on the floor now Waterton leaseholders plan brief is being used for electric shock i treatment; another room, the waiting room or TV room for patients and visitors, doubles j as a recuperation area for pa- tients who have received shock treatments. The plan is to turn Medical 2 and adjacent rooms into the psychiatric unit. A room ad- jacent to the TV room, doub- ling 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 their doctors in privacy. One or two other such rooms are to be added. One private room atid an ad- jacent four-bed ward in Medi- cal 2 would become a cafeteria and occupational therapy room for 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 the northwest wing on (hat floor, after renovations, occupy- ing the present labor and de- livery section. This section now averages about 1% 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.
