"We hav- been Satisfying Customers for Over oO Years" 3JS 8lh St. S., lethbrlda. TpODAY is a red-letter day, a day of semi-momentous propoi tion. This is the day all the loose scraps of paper that hav been sitting in the basket for weeks on end are consolidate into one column. Loose scrap of paper Number one contains random thoughts on the civic election, most of which will be depositec in the waste basket. But there is one question that might be di Tommy Ferguson do it? No one ever doubted Mr. Ferguson would be elected, man with his experience and well-deserved reputation for fairness is a natural for cHty council. But isn't it traditional for politicians to at least through the motions of making some kind of policy state- ment? Granted, Mr. Ferguson knows as much as anyon about civic affairs. His "elect experience" platform was valid But wouldn't it be nice to know what be intended tc do with that experience? Mr. Ferguson accomplished a nea lead the polls without making one public statement to my knowledge, on any local issue. It is to be hoped that once he sits down at the council table, he will concentrate his efforts on formulating policy, no the administrative details that often take up so much time a council meetings. The same applies, of course, to all members of council As Alderman C. W. Chichester said on election night, it', time to stop petty wrangling about insignificant details. Loose scrap of paper Number two has something abou glass on city the kind of thing council could ignore completely for the simple reason that the administri tion (and the citizens of Lethbridge) should be able to han- dle the problem. Glass is a pain in the bicycle tire, among other things, Your average automobile can drive through a mountain o: glass with impunity, but skinny bike tires are much more vulnerable. Things have reached the point where damage has been inflicted on the rear tire of my 1943 COM runabout, prob- ably as a result of someone breaking a bottle on my drive- way. Clear glass is hard to spot during that early-morning dash to work. It would be nice to see a city-wide effort to halt the thoughtless breaking of glass containers on the streets. Bar- ring that, let's stop busting bottles on my driveway. Also on bicycles-if you ever want to find out what it is to be a non-person, try riding a bike. Most Lethbridge motorists are considerate, but there are some who refuse to rectognize your existence. It becomes essential that the bicyclist stops assuming that cars will make any allowance for his or later there's a driver that acts as if you aren't there at all. There's been some talk at council meetings about handling the problem of increased bicycle traffic. Good idea, let's have some action. One final scrap of "turning the city into a rilderness area" project this summer was a dismal failure, (see a column last spring sometime for details of the The wild grass project in the back garden was over-run with weeds and the "let the lawn grow" movement was stymied by the landlord's arrival with a lawnmower. But things look good for next year. The federal de- partment of agriculture, I discovered, can tell one how to raise sagebrush and black-eyed susans. Now is the time to plan for next summer's establishment of a prairie environ- ment in Lethbridge yards. Attention Datsun Owners! NOW IN STOCK! ORIGINAL EQUIPMENT WINTER TIRES OUR CASH AND CARRY PRICE, PER TIRE WHILE THEY LAST! FOREIGN CAR Corner 3rd Ave. and 11th St. S. Phona 321-9651 City plans bid for federal funds Lethbridge is prepared t o take advantage of the federa government's financial aid to municipalities for job making projects, Mayor Andy Ander- son said Friday. Mayor Anderson said discus- sions had already been held to determine which local projects might qualify for assistance. The new central library, wa- ter mains and reservoirs in northeast Lethbridge and on the west side and upgrading of Indian Battle Park may qual- ify for assistance, he said. He gave lower priority to new tea nis courts for the city. It was important that the pro- jects chosen be consistent with the federal government's aim of creating jobs and getting people off the welfare rolls, he said. Details of the regulations were not yet available and the exact method of ensuring that jobs were given to those who needed them most had not been worked out, he said. "We'll have to concentrate on those projects that are primarily la- bor oriented." Mayor Anderson said timing of construction to avoid slack periods in the industry was vi- tal and the city would attempt to update projects that had been "on the books" for some time in order to take advan- tage of the federal aid. He sug- gested the proposed major ice arena might qualify if it is started in time. The aid program announced by Finance Minister Ben son contains a provision that would return to provincial and mu- nicipal governments for every spent for on site labor costs incurred up until May 31, 1972. Also listed is million in loans to provincial and munici- pal governments for projects to aid employment and mil- lion in grants to municipalities and community organizations for the same purpose. Mayor Anderson said the Lethbridge proposals would be put forward at a meeting Thurs- day with David Russell, pro- vincial municipal affairs minis- ter. Representatives of all Alber- ta urban and rural municipal- ities will attend the meeting to discuss the programs that may qualify for federal aid. Mayor Anderson said the funds would probably be handed over to the provincial government for dis- tribution- The Lethbridge and District Exhibition Association may also benefit. The plan includes million in loans for construc- tion of multl purpose exMbl- tion buildings. Andy Andrews, exhibition board manager, said the board would discuss the federal an- nouncement at its Monday meeting. The board has been planning for expansion of facilities for some time and the federal gov- ernment was contacted some months ago regarding financial help. Mr. Andrews said he felt the board was "well up on the list" at the present time. 750 new jobs needed yearly Lethbridge proper and south- ern Alberta in general will have to provide 750 jobs each year through 1976 to satisfy local educational gradual i o n requirements. Dennis O'Connell, city eco- nomic development director, surveyed the Lethbridge school district, the Lethbridge sepa- rate school district, the county of Lethbridge school district, the Lethbridge Community Col- lege and the University of Leth- bridge to determine more def- initive material projecting the labor force entries from these institutions. Also included in the city study are facts about the total school enrolments, total school grad- uations, graduations by grades, graduates continuing then- edu- cation and where, the type of course graduated from and stu- dents entering various positions in the labor force or entering graduate school. At a press conference Fri- day, Mr. O'Connell said it is important to provide job oppor- tunities in this area for people graduating from school be- cause, if not, the community will lose those qualities con- nected with youth. These qualities are needed in any community, especially in Lethbridge which is developing as a unique centre in Canada, he said. "The other reason more op- portunities should be provided in the community to keep the students here is the large amount of money spent on the Haste makes waste three speeders discover Three Lethbridge and district drivers paid a total of in hies when they pleaded guilty n Lethbridge magistrate's court to speeding.
