Following board approval, expected in a month, the coun- ty's architect will prepare working drawings, to go back to the buildings board by February of next year. Because tenders won't be awarded before the end of March 1975, the additions to more than double the size of the Coalhurst school will not (be ready for county students next fall, Mr. Robins said.

Doug Kometz of the Lethbridge fire department says about children were given the dots during fire prevention week, which ended Saturday. He gave the dots to school children in grades 1 to 3 after fire prevention talks in which he told them to practise fire drills at home, to know the department's emergency number and to place the dots on their windows. The Red Dot program was sponsored by the Lethbridge Jaycees and the fire department. It is helpful to firemen in locating which room a child is in if his house is on fire, Mr. Kometz said Children and elderly people are the ones most frequently injured in fires, he observed. He said he doesn't think the red dots will prove a hazard to fireman who might take extra risks if they see a red dot on a window only to find there is no child in the house at the tune of the lire. If there are three windows to check at a fire, firemen will check the one with the red dot first. The dots were supposed to be a florescent orange but the printer made a mistake and they came out a bright red, Mr. Kometz said. This won't make five-inch diameter dots difficult to see at night he claims as there is usually no lack of light at the start of a fire and the fire cap- usually checks the win- dows with a light upon arriv- ing at a fire and would spot the red dot.
