A handful of representatives make pre advertised but in- frequent calls to communities throughout the province to an- swer questions and solve prob- lems. J. R. Gay, supervisor of the Calgary branch of the Alberta Health Care Insurance Commis- sion spent iaot week in Leth- bridge to answer questions more than 100 district residents put to him concerning cover- age.

Many of those requiring as- sistance were immigrants or under educated people who did not fully understand the written terms of compulsory medical insurance. The more complex problems dealt with group insurance pol- icies. Mr. Gay expressed surprise at how many people were not aware of the reduced payment plan for those insurance recipi- ents whose annual income did not meet a normal payment level. J. S. Falconer, chairman nf the AHCI Commission told The Herald the commission has been sending representa- tives throughout the province to answer questions and analyze the possible need for further representation. "Only through experience can the representatives take notice of the he said, adding: "I imagine the need is greater now than later because of the newness of the compulsory plan. He said the commission will respond if a need for more rep- resentatives or offices is dis- closed by its representatives. People from smaller centres who write the AHCIC office for assistance further assist in studying future needs. Because the commission is guided by reports and acts ac- cordingly it is "difficult speculate" into the future, he said. Asked whether the reason the commission has not established offices outside of Alberta's two major centres is a limited bud- get, Mr. Falconer replied: "The commission's budget is not restricted at the moment." He added, the commission spends money only where it "needs to." Mr. Falconer said the com- mission's centralized computer system, which does not read letters, may be the cause for delays experienced in answer- ing some requests for informa- tion. Court lias absentee problem Attendance in Lethbridge magistrate's court Monday was poor.

In most cases they will face a higher fine if they plead or are found guilty. Council is boggled by transportation By RICHARD BURKE Staff Writer The future of transportation in the city of Lethbridge re- ceived virtually all of city council's attention Monday night as various delegations, council and the city adminis- tration batted around the pro- posed transportation bylaw. R> specific action was taken on that bylaw which will be considered, along with the rest of last night's agenda, when council reconvenes Nov. 1. Seven people spoke in oppo- sition to the bylaw, which is in- tended to create a transporta- tion system for the city to ac- commodate traffic for the rest of the century. The delegations generally agreed future highway traffic should bypass the city rather than be channelled through it as the plan proposes. Engineering Director Ted Lawrence said the provincial department of highways ap- proved of designating 24th Ave. S. as a freeway and 1st Ave. S. as an expressway. The plan also calls for 6th Ave. S. to be used as an arterial roadway between Mayor Magrath Drive and Scenic Drive. The chief opposition to the 24th Ave. S. designation came from Lethbridge Community College President Dr. C. D. Stewart and local land devel- oper Holger Frandsen. Dr. Stewart said the proposal boxes in the college, effectively stifling future expansion. He said, "If anyone had planned to box in the college, they couldn't have done a better job, even by erecting a Berlin Wall." Immortality for Mayor Andy Anderson has purchased immortality for He is the first resident of the city to purchase a brick for the "feature wall" in the new Lethbridge arena. Those purchasing a brick will have their names inscribed on the wall so future generations can see who played a part in construction of the new arena. Members of the "Instant Ice Council" will offer the per- sonalized bricks to the public in a one-night blitz of the city on Monday, Nov. 1 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. The "Instant Ice Council" was f or me d shortly after the old arena was destroyed by fire March 12. Its objective is to assist the city in financing the new facility, which is still in the planning stages.

K the proposed freeway is allowed to be built, it would stop such activities, Ire said. Mr. Fi-andsen was also con- cerned that the college would be isolated from the rest of the community. He proposed an alternate route for the free- way originating at the Coutts highway, heading west past McNally school and turning generally northwest to run down the six-mile coulee and meet 24th Ave. at the river- bottom. Mr. Lawrence said such a route might not be economic- ally or esthetically feasible considering the amount of land fill which would be required in the coulee area. The proposed changes to 6th Ave. S. were opposed by Dr. Harry Afaganis. He questioned running an arterial road past the Watson Elementary School and was also concerned that the trees along 6th Ave. would have to be removed to facili- tate widening of the street. He took a shot at the system as a whole saying he "hopes that Lethbridge has not allow- ed outside consultants and nameless provincial officials to make the decisions for council to rubber stamp." Tlie city is required by pro- vincial legislation to establish a transportation bylaw before the city is eligible for funds from Edmonton for highway construction, Mr. Lawrence said. The road network here is to be integrated with the over-all system of provincial highways planned to connect with an in- ter-state highway in Montana. Mr. Lawrence said once the bylaw is passed, the system car.not be sunslantially altered. However, there is provision for minor flexibilities, he said. Mayor Andy Anderson stress- ed a bylaw must be presented to the provincial government by Dec. 31 of this year. A n extension of one year from. Jan. 1, 1971 had been given to tbo city to prepare and pass a by- law. On a related matter, council was presented with the pro- posal for an interchange at Sce- nic Drive and 6th Ave. S., but no action was taken on that proposal. The design calls for develop- ment of the intersection in two stages, the first of which would be in conjunction with the Old- man River crossing at 6th Ave. The cost of the first stage was estimated at with an equal amount projected for the second stage. City Man- ager Tom Nutting said it is possible the second stage would not be necessary. That would depend on the traffic demands in 15 or 20 years. At any rate, the propo- sal comes up next week, coun- cil will only consider approving it in principle. All members of council were present for the meeting. Lethbridge is represented at urban municipalities meet Lethbridge will be well rep- resented at the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association Con- vention in Edmonton this week, with Mayor Andy Anderson, City Manager Tom Nutting and six aldermen attending. The conference began this morning with a meeting of se- nior administrators, and will continue until noon Friday. The AUMA meets annually to discuss possible new legisla- tion or amendments to existing laws which the provincial gov- ernment could pass. The convention also gives municipal government repre1 sentatives a chance to meet with provincial cabinet minis- ters. Lethbridge has submitted a resolution asking that the prov- ince consider increasing grants to local libraries. Red Deer has submitted an extensive list of changes that city like to see in the Planning Act. Aldermen Vcra Ferguson, Tom Ferguson, Ed Bastedo, Bill Kergan, Chick Chichester and Steve Kotch will form the del- egation from council. In their platforms before the recent civic election, many of the candidates referred to a need for increased co-operation between the various levels government. The AUMA con- vention is one way of achiev- ing this.
