Colin Rainsbury, the national field administrator for UNICEF in Canada, told the executive council of the Leth- bridge Chamber of Commerce Ihe current operating budget for the world service organiza- tion is million per year. He said that although the budget sounded large it actual- ly amounted to less than 6 cents per child in need. Mr. Rainsbury told the coun- cil this year marks the 25th anniversary of UNICEF.

The organization has since expanded lo serving all of the needy children throughout the world, he said. It was the function of TJNICEF to help the children of the world's developing coun- U M C E F leaves cry city Air Canada feels is necessary for good service. "As long as the agent signs in properiy, the machine will tell him how to operate said Mr. Eliot. "If the agent makes a mistake, the ma- chine will tell him so and tell him where he made the error." At the c e n t r a 1 office, Mr. Eliot is in charge of an Auto- matic Call Distributor monitor which gives him informal i o n about the working of the sys- tem including total number of calls per hour, number of aban- doned calls, recordings and av- erage length of calls. The role of the three CRT machines at the Calgary Inter- national Airport is important to Air Canada since it allows a complete check list o f pas- sengers on flight, all local pas- sengers, through passengers, open seats once the plane has left Calgary and display infor- mation for any centre serviced by Air Canad'a. Once the information is in the machine, it is available to all stations along the flight path. U T. Keeler, supervisor at the airport, said the computer gives the complete reservation list, "Although reservations can be handled here at the airport, most of these items are pro- i cessed through the central of- fice. We do it for public ser- vice.' I Walter R. (Stub) Ross, presi- i dent of Time Air said the com- puter system is a boon to his airline. "The free sell priv- ileges we have with Air Can- ada allows us to book reserva- tions on all Air Canada flights An intersection design lor Scenic Drive and 6th Avc. b'. was approved in principle by the Municipal Planning Commission Wednesday and recommended for approval by city council. The design was introduced to the MFC at the Sept. 29 meeting as a two-stage development, with the initial stage to accommodate traffic for 10 to 15 years from the date of completion. The first stage would sec the construction of inter change ramps off Scenic Drive and redevelopment of Scenic Drive from 6th to 7th Ave. The second stage calls for the widening of 6th Ave. to six traffic lanes when the traffic warrants the change. At that time, an extension of (ith Ave. will be constjiictcd passing under Scenic Drive to connect with the Oldman River crossing. If council approves the design, it must still be passed by the provincial department of highways. The MPC also approved a request by Jake and Melvin Andres for permission to construct a truck depot at 123 North Mayor Magrath Drive. The application was tabled last week pending resolution of screening of the project from North Mayor Magrath Drive and the area to the west of the drive. The development officer MPC Hie parks and recreation superintendent had recommended the city maintain a 10-foot strip of land on the west side of the properly for screening purposes and the application was approved on that basis. An application by B and T Auto Sales to establish a used car lot at 1303 3rd Ave. S. was refused by the MPC. A request by Henry Krahn Construction for permission to build a 12-suite apartment building at 1211-1215 23rd St. N. was also refused. At the direction of city council, the MPC reclassified Ihc application of Widorsky's Furniture as being approved on an automotive use basis under the zoning the applicalion was previously approved, the MPC applied retail standards to the operation and in effect set a pri'-cedent to allow mobile home sales in any part of the city zoned for retail adjustment dues al-fecl the use of the land by Sid-orsky's. Both automotive and retail use are permisiblc on that properly under the zoning bylaw. electors t( Proprietary electors will no longer have the exclusive right to vote on bylaws if the city council elected Oct. agrees with the present council.

During pasl city council meet- in 's if has been suggested by Tom Nulling, city manager, and some city aldermen thai the librarv board should look inlo far greater supply of books than is possible with the small libraries found in this area. "To regionalize library ser- vices is the only way people outside the major centres will be able to have a good library service." said George Dew, chief librarian at the public li- brary. "In this case Lethbridge would also benefit because it does not have a large popula- tion." As Mr. Dew explained, be- sides the advantages in ser- vice of a regional library there arc also economic advantages. The provincial government gives library grants. For a pop- ulation of 'between and Ihc ceiling is S12.500. Any city of more than 40.000 jiersons could got a grant up to With a regional library there arc no ceilings on government grants. The grants arc based on so much support for every dollar given towards libraries by their prospective civic governments.

The possibilities of a regional library in soulhern Alberta could be one-day access lo a twecn Calgary and Edmonton. The only problem with a re- gional library system, Mr. Dew is the process of all communilios coining lo an agreement with each other over funding for the library. MR.
