Animals from the four west- ern provinces are auctioned at Perlich Bros., say Joe and Tony Perlich, company president and secretary.

Cattle used to i be shipped to Manitoba. I Tha Perlich brothers are sit- uated on a quarter section of land and plans for the future include expansion of the long- haul feeding facilities. "This is really the hub of the livestock says Joe Perlich, "and as the demand grows we plan to grow." Joe has been in the auction- eering business 17 years and is president of the Alberta Auc- tion Markets Association and was a director of the Alberta Auctioneers Association for sis years.

Earlier, Aid. Chick Chiches- ter, who was appointed chair- man of MPC, said the original general plan was adopted seven years ago and is overdue for a review. The MPC has also experienc- ed some difficulty with interpre- tation of certain sections of the zoning bylaw, in particular those sections dealing with home-occupation businesses and with zone classifications in the urban renewal area. In regular MPC business, an applictaion to develop a cash- and-carry wholesale warehouse at 415 2nd St. S. by Abe Bick- man was approved in principle. Approval was given with the request that access to parking on the property be provided from 4th Ave. and that access from Scenic Drive be eliminat- ed. The MPC refused a request by Cough's Auto Body Ltd. for permission to establish a car sales lot and a lot for the stor- age and parking of vehicles at 206 llth St. S. and 1016 2nd Ave. S. The application was re- jected because the proposal is not allowed under the zoning bylaw or planning act without consolidation of the two prop- erties. Approval was given to R. Nason Sporting Goods Ltd. to establish a sporting goods wholesale outlet at 1007 3rd Ave. S. The MPC also approved a request by John Friesen for permission to establish a home- occupation office for a reflexo- logist practice with the condi- tion that no patients be treated in Mr. Friesen's home. Mr. Friesen described reflex- ology as "working on the re- flex nervous system to increase the circulation in the nerve im- pulse." would start promptly at p.m. It has not yet been announced where the tickets will be sold, but Mr. Bland stressed the din- ner would be opan to the public and there would be a cut-off date on ticket sales at least a week prior to the affair. Also at the meeting, new chamber "task force" co-ordin- ators were announced. Dr. Russell Leskiw was ap- pointed the new co-ordinator for management and labor; Stan Coxon was appointed the task force chairman. Other co ordinator appoint- ments included Dr. C. D. Stew- art, for water resources; Steve Kotch, for transportation and highways and Dale Martin for membership. Mr. Bland said the "t a s k force" concept would replace the committee system used last year. He said a task force would be created to deal with 1 specific situation and would continue to function only as long as it was needed. It is hoped the new concept will free the members from at- tending many useless meetings of committees which were not functioning at the time. Mr. Bland said members will bo called upon to help, but they will not be "bogged down" by committees. Mike Carnell, member of the University of Lethbridge Stu- dents' Society Council, said it would be possible for the cham- ber to arrange an evening din- ner and tour of the new cam- pus and building, but no further plans were reached. Some discussion was also held on the possibility of a let- ter-writing and management-by- objectives course, but both were tabled for later in tha new year.
