Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 15, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta _ THE UTHBRIDOE HERALD Friday, Otlotior 13, j AVENUE NORTH FREEWAY EXPRESSWAY ARTERIAL MAJOR COLLECTOR INTERCHANGE TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM CITY OF tETHBRIDGE in ROAD NETWORK This is the basis for the city's pro- posed transportation bylaw, which has received initial consideration by council. The public will get a chance to express its views Oct. 25 at 8 p.m. when a hearing on the bylaw will be held in the council chambers. Once the by- law has been given final approval by city council and the province it will be the master plan for the city and only minor amendments will be allowed. The bylaw has been prepared at the request of the province and must be ready by the end of the year. Roads designated as free- ways will be divided highways carrying heavy traffic volumes at high speeds. Artorials and expressways carry large volumes at slightly slower speeds and more access is allowed. The plan is a guide to be followed in future development and will be implemented in stages. It covers anticipated road-building for the next 20 years. The 24th Ave. bypass to the west side, for example, will probably not be required before 1990. ___________________ New hospital planning council to be organized .1., jc.uj. ami 91 nsvrhiatrip 246 from 268 babies duri The Lethbridge area may soon have a new planning Andy Andreachuk, hospital administrator told the board, council to recommend all hos-j "The purpose of the council is QTlrl: tft l-owmC SUV nfld fll] DrO- pital health care planning and development changes.

The council is modeled after similar operations in Calgary and Edmonton. In other business, the four newly elected Lethbridge Mu- nicipal Hospital board mem- bers quickly got their feet wet as they attended Thursday night's board meeting-one day after their election. The new members, W. P. (Bill) Skelton, Don LeBaron, Elaine Thacker and Richard Bateman, attended the meet- ing as observers, a position they will retain until they are formally sworn in soon. Mr. Andreachuk told the board the hospital's municipal hospital district came under fire by the board. The board decided to have the Alberta Hospital Services Commission look into the mat- ter of getting the money. In other business Mr. An- dreachufc told the board the Sept. 27 completion of renova- tions on the hospital's second floor increased its bed capac- ity to 207 from 192 beds- The hospital's bed comple- ment now is as follows: 19 obstetrics beds, 66 medical beds, 77 surgery beds, 24 pe- expenses for a nine-month pe- riod ending Sept. 30, amounted to compared with an operating revenue of An operating deficit of 973, paid by the municipality, had been budgeted.

"The hospital is making a re- quest to the Alberta Hospital Services Commission to in- crease its grant to this institu- tion based on the new psychi- atric services that have been added, Mr. Andreachuk said. "Beds are not the base for the grant, service is."

Annual classic on again ]ity throws ball o MRV users Representatives of local mo- r i z e d recreational vehicle era Thursday agreed to in- estigate the possibility of rming a unified organization r the purpose of sub-leasing nd from the city. Agreement came after about n hour of circular discussion volving the ad hoc committee i motorized recreational ve- cles and representatives from i e Lethbridge Motorcycle ub, Lethbridge Coulee Cruis- rs, a local dune buggy club ind unorganized cyclists. Much of the discussion con- erned the policing of the area esignated for recreational ve- cle use. Although no area has Mercury oo high fish 246 from 268 babies during corresponding period a ye ago. Mr. Andreachuk said the number of babies born in Sep- tember took an unusual dip. Only 26 births were recorded compared with the average monthly total of 44 births. Tests conducted by the de- artment of lands and forests, ish and wildlife branch, indi- cate it is not advisable to use sh from the South Saskatche- wan River for food. D. S. Radford, fisheries biolo- gist at the Lethbridge branch, aid this morning the mercury evels of most of the speci- mens tested (goldeye, northern pike, sauger and white sucker) xcecded the 0.5 parts per mil- ion level designated by the food and Drug Directorate as the maximum permissible imount. This analysis is part of a re- test of fish taken from the Crowsnest River, TyreU's Lake and the South Saskatchewan liver, and the results are sim- lar to the previous investiga- ion. The sources of mercury in all cases are unknown. Mr. Radford said the report showed rainbow trout from Tyr- rell's Lake and the Crowsnest River do not have significant amounts of mercury and are safe to eat. Rocky Mountain whitefish from the Crowsnest River are also satisfactory for consump- tion. Mr. Radford said the levels of pesticides such as DDT pres- ent in these samples from the Crowsnest River and Tyrrell's Lake are far below the maxi- mum permissible mercury con- tent and therefore there is no concern about consumption of these fish. yet been specified for such use, Jiere was a consensus that when the appropriate property is found, steps must be taken to assure that adjacent lands are not abused by vehicle users. Rap MacPherson, assistant to the city manager, said the city had a piece of land in mind southwest of the city near the Lethbridge Trap Club, but that there had been no negotiations with the property owner. The probable approach, he said, would be for the city to lease the land from the owner and to sub-lease the land to an MRV group. He said before the city does negotiate, a definite interest must be shown by vehicle users. The commitee suggested that interest be evidenced by a unified group which would be able to represent all users in the city. Mr. MacPherson also sug- gested such a group could be involved in looking for appro- priate land and making recom- mendations to the city. He said the city can't, be expected to take the initiative. A representative of the Leth- bridge Motorcycle Club said the city was originally ap- proached about providing land which is such as to the riverbottom area, for MKV use. In August, the city manager suggested some land hi the coulees might be offered, but only on a temporary basis. The committee said a better alternative would be to look for an area which could be perma- nently set aside for MRV use. City council in August re- solved that the city give en- couragement and administra- tive assistance to an MRV group wishing to develop a site.

Ph. 327-4280 fall By HERB JOHNSON Classic Reporter It's called the annual classic. Each year two teams meet to decide who will reign as world baseball champions for the coming year and millions of people suddenly develop an all consuming passion for a sport most of them ignore the rest of the year. It is a sociological phenom- enon that simply begs to be ex- amined and explained. The Herald did not launch a full scale investigation into the annual mass hysteria that is now upon us. It did call one local psychologist to find out what he thought. Gordon Russell, an assistant professor of psychology at the University of Lethbridge, was willing to venture a few "off- Ihe top of his head" com- ments, more as an observer of the social scene than as a pro- fessional psychologist. Prof. Russell p r a cticaUy guaranteed the raising of dedi- cated baseball fans' hackles, when he began by calling baseball "an incredibly dull spectator sport." While it may be fun to play, it's boring to watch, according to Prof. Russell." The reason it has a following is that it is sup- ported by the news media and the whole North American cul- ture. It's in the same league as the flag and motherhood every youngster is told baseball is he exciting national sport and eventually most of them wind up believing it. As far as the sudden upsurge in interest at World Series time is concerned, Prof. Russell be- jeves it is a perfectly healthy pastime, if kept within reason- able limits. It's a way of coping with the increased leisure time people have today. As long as the fan does not glue himself to the TV all weekend, he is probably just finding a healthy release from the tensions and frustra- tions of everyday living. People are able to identify with the teams very quickly and build up almost instant loyalties a harmless pastime in an age that has too much unstructured time. In order to maintain some semblance of balance and ob- jectivity, the Herald also talked to one baseball fan. The (un named) fan one of the year round types had little good to say about the "instant fans" who suddenly become rabid aficionados each October. He suggested there might be something just a little phoney about it. Baseball, he said, is enjoy- able because of its complexities in strategy and the unexpected that springs from the human element to upset those strat- egies. He calls it a rather than "exciting" sport. If he can avoid gluing him- self to the TV set, he will have Prof. Russell's approval to go on watching until he discovers he is actually involved in an in- credibly dull spectator sport.
