Community participation MFC Nixes Motor Homes Expansion The Municipal Planning Com- mission Wednesday refused per- mission to Pete Simons and Sons Construction Ltd. to build an addition to McDonell Gay Way Motor Homes at 1502 2nd Ave. S. The proposed addition did not conform to the 15 foot sideyard requirements for an Industrial 2 zone. Rezoning to Industrial 2 was approved by city council Aug. 24 to allow the manufac- turing firm to locate on the site. The commission approved a request by Giacinto Pietramala to convert a confectionery at 544 13th St. N. to a bakery, pro- vided it meets fire and health department regulations. Also approved was a request by Jacob Martens to build two semi-detached units on St. Da- vid Road in North Lethbridge. Two subdivision applications were given approval. One in- volves 20 acres north of Win- ston Churchill High School and will provide 92 residential lots. It is city owned land sjid is part of a subdivision north of 18th Ave. N. between 16th and 28th St. N. Two blocks within the subdiv- sion will be zoned for multi- 'amily dwellings. The other subdivision involved replotting to provide five par- cels for a church, multi-family dwellings and community re- serve land in southeast Lake- view. Steps will be taken, at the re- quest of Alderman C. W. Chich- ester, to draw up a more for- mal agreement between the city and developers regarding con- ditions that may be a require- ment for the commission's ap- proval for a project. Projects are sometimes given approval with the understand- ing that certain conditions will be met in the construction. Aid. Chichester noted that problems occasionally arise in enforcing these conditions. It was suggested any future conditions be acknowledged by the signature of the developer, who would still retain his right to appeal. A policy change in this mat- ter would be decided by city council. is also an important considera- tion in the judging of eligible families. Pair Fined For Assault On Wrestler Two Lethbridge men received some verbal reprimand when they pleaded guilty in magis- trate's court in the city Wed- nesday to a charge of assault. Andras P a 1 o t i and Bryan Beerlim were fined and costs for assaulting wrestler Gil- bert Hayes following a wrest- ling match at the Lethbridge Exhibition Pavilion. Apparently during some ver- bal combat between the two men and the wrestler, language got rather salty resulting in what Beerlim considered an in- sult to his date. The assault oc- curred after the match. Magistrate Hudson said there is a time when valor stops and foolishness starts and this was one of those times. He said it appeared to hint that this instance was like put- ting one's head in a lion's mouth. In other court action, Robert James McCulloch pleaded guil- ty to two charges of false pre- tences. He had attempted to cash cheques at a local store. He was fined for both charges. Theodoras Van Den Hengel of the city was fined and pro- hibited from driving in Canada for a period of nine months when he pleaded guilty to driv- ing while the alcohol content of his blood system was above the maximum allowable of .08. He registered a count of .21 and .20 when checked1 by city police. A local woman was fined 'or stealing an 88 cent pair of nylons from the Woolco Shop- ling Centre. Blood Clinic Near Quota There was a total of 382 pints of blood donated Wednesday during the two sessions of the Hod Cross blood donor clinic, currently being held in Leth- bridge. Mrs. Dean Holroyd, clinic secretary said she was pleased to announce that only 210 addi- tional pints are required to reach the 900 pint quota. The last session is 6 to 9 o'clock tonight.

It was established Filion was in possession of LSD before be- ing found not guilty of intend- ing to traffic the drug and he received an eight month sen- tence for possessing LSD. Filion was fined last fall when he appeared in court in Quebec for possession of LSD and subsequently received the jail term on being convicted for ths second time. Chief Judge L. S. Turcotte in finding Filion not guilty of pos- session of LSD for the purpose of trafficking said in his mind there was no doubt Filion in- tended to sell the drug but was doubtful he should con v i c t Fiiion on the evidence present- ed by the crown. Judge Turcotte said he must base his judgment on the fact he believed Fih'on knew he had 106 tablets of LSD, however, lie said we have this strange way of life. Judge Turcotte couldn't understand whv a man would walk across Canada in bare feet with no money or food. The court was told Filion left Quebec in June to hitch hike to Vancouver with little or no money. After being in Vancou- ver for several weeks living on welfare cheques, Filion was asked by a man on the street if he wanted to buy some acid. With a welfare cheque, he received from the youth hostel in Vancouver and he had left from a previous welfare cheque, Fih'on purchas- ed about. 108 tabs of acid. Filion left Vancouver the next day and ended up in Medicine Hat four days later. He was caught trying to steal some food nnd was fined or 10 days in jail. Fih'on took the jail sen- SMILEY'S PLUMBING BASEMENT BATHROOMS REMODELLING Phone 328-2176 tence and when he was trans- ferred to the Lethbridge provin- cial jail he was made to strip off all his clothing so they could be washed. When a guard at the jail picked up the clothing, a plastic bag containing the LSD dropped out of Filion's shorts. Filion claimed he was an ad- dict and the LSD 'was for his own personal use. He said he had been taking LSD every day or two for the past two years. Counsel for Filion based his defence around fe fact Filion didn't have to steal food, he could have just sold a "hit" or two of acid if lie wanted money. Defence also staled any b o d y knows it's easy to get rid of acid if they put their mind to it. Filion, when arrested, had no money, shoes, socks, food, or means of transportation. He said LSD means everything to him and that's all that matter- ed.
