Hospitals amalgamation approved By HERB JOirNSON Staff Writer City council Tuesday endors- ed the amalgamation of the boards of trustees of the Leth- bridge Municipal Hospital and the Lethbridge Auxiliary Hos- pital. STUDIO ON FIFTH PICTURE FRAMING ARTISTS' v SUPPLIES GALLERY j! 710 S AVE S Only Aldermen Steve Kotcb and .Tim Anderson opposed the resolution. Much of the opposition to the move came from Aid. Anderson, who said his primary concern was that lie could not approve of amalgamation unless it were demonstrated to council that it was in Ihe best interest of the taxpayers of the city. Aid. Vaughan Hembroff said that it was not up to city coun- cil to sit in judgment. The de- cision to amalgamate had been reached by the two boards and council's reaction properly should be to simply say "go ahead." Aid. Anderson countered that council did have a responsibil- ity in the matter, for two rea- sons: its acceptance of the move was provided for in legis- lation and council bad cut back certain civic sendees at budget CLIFF BLACK, Certified Dental Mechanic BLACK DENTAL LAB Lower Level MEDICAL DENTAL BLDG.

Ph. 327-5244 Open Thursday Evening Till 9 p.m. time in order to compensate for the SHOU.OOO Municipal HospiUl deficit. He contended that even though the city acied merely as a collector of the hospital re- quisition, the fact that the deficit had effected other areas of the budget was reason for council to have an interest in the results of the proposed amalgamation. Aid. Anderson said council's concern was with the growing Municipal Hospital deficit and the effect amalgamation would have on it. He asked Frank Russell, chairman of the Muni- cipal board, for assurance that the deficit would not grow under a single board. Mr. Russell replied that he could not promise any money- snving advantage, adding that relating policy making by the Boards to cost efficiency was an oversimplification. There were several reasons [or the amalgamation, Mr. Rus- sell said. He cited streamlining of ihe decision-making process as one faclor, one that would eliminate a two to three-monlh delay that now takes place wliile the two boards commun- icate on policy decisions. He also pointed out that the two hospitals are on the same grounds and share services and administration. (The adminis tration was integrated Aug. 1. Having only one board woulc avoid the situation in which a single administration would take direction from two differ ent boards, he said. Mr. Russell also said the move would facilitate a "na tural flow" between the active treatment Municipal Hospital the Auxiliary Hospital and the Soutliland Nursing Home, cur- rently under construction by the Auxiliary Hospital district. He said it hnd been hoped that the amalgamation, which ac- cording to provincial legislation must have the approval of the major contributing municipali- ties, would be approved in time for the Oct. 13 civic election. Ban-ing having the necessar} approval in time for the S'ept. 15 deadline for nominations, an election or appointment to a single board could take place when the necessary provincial order-in-council was produced, he said.

Shops closing hours Council defers bylaw discuss By RICHARD BURKE Staff Writer The issue concerning the clos- ing ot shops bylaw was re- ferred Tuesday hy ciLy council to a future meeting which review the present bylaw clause by clause and make ne- cessary modifications. Debute Tuesday established the difficulty facing council in attempting to resolve the ques- tion. Alderman Vera Ferguson, who said such a move would i Aid Hemhrofl countered that create unemployment. "the fighter v.iilc a bylaw, A prime concern in the issue] the more likely it is [o be is the cnforceability of any clos-1 broken." acknowledging the "good ser- vice reputation" established by the independent businessmen in Lelhbridge, proposed their request for Monday closing be adopted. She suggested drawing up a bylaw following a similar by- law now in force in Rcgina. This would be used only as a guideline and would probahlv require modifications lo suit the situation in Lelhbridge, she said. Independent merchants and their staff are entitled to two consecutive days off, as are other memliers of society, she said, and in this context, it would be retrogressive to Ire open more hours than now. The Monday closing sugges- tion met with opposition from Mayor Andy Anderson and Aid. Vauglian Hembroff. Mayor Anderson said lie had been in contact with officials in ing bylaw. Aid. Jim Anderson pointed out the question was originally brought to council's attention because of violations of the present bylaw and the inability of city police to en- force it. Deputy Mayor Rex LilUe said he "would not be a part to any legislation which could not ho enforced." He referred lo the various businesses which are licensed to sell specific products, such as drug stores, but which sell other products at hours when stores selling the same products arc required to close. Deputy Mayor Little suggest- ed that any bylaw would have to distinctly define each type of business covered by the by- law. Hegina against who advised him legislating Monday closing. He said the officials there told him they have had continual problems wilh their closing bylaw. Taking away the retail ser- vice Mondays is a "frighten- ing prospect" to Aid. Hembrojf, Library board set for new building By JUDI WALKER Staff Writer Members of the Lethbridge Public Library Board are be- ginning to review submissions from architects for a new cen- tral library. The field of 27 architects is to be naiTOwed by a committee to a smaller list, and then brought back to the board for the "ultimate decision." Board Chairman W. S. Rus- sell reported at Tuesday's meet- ing that the board had sent information on the b'brary to 95 architects and to the profession- al architects' association invit- ing submissions. He said the board was "swamped with so many of which were from "ex- cellent" architects that the de- cision would be a difficult one. Mr. Russell said that of the 27 submissions, three are from local architects and "all of the local architects will be on the list" to be brought back to the board. A brief is being drawn up by George Dew, the chief librar- ian, as a guide to the architect in his thinking. The brief is lo reflect library philosophy and how it should be reflected in the new building. The location of the ibrary at 9th St. and 4th Ave. was approved by city council at the end of July. Construction is to start next year. Circulation of children's books 'rom. the Lethbridge Public Library is declining during the school year; some youngsters are finding all they need in the school library. George Dew, the city's chief ibrarian, suggested in his re- port Ihe library board Tuesday .hat a decline in Ihe use of looks by elementary school- aged students might indicate these students arc getting all the books they need from school. He said the stock is quite sim- iliar. "The only difference is in emphasis. We have a large section on religion; the school does not." Often, he said, school librar- ians come to the public library to make up their lists of books to order. He said the decline had be- come noticeable over the past two years and was probably the result of elementary schools re- vamping their libraries. The fact that the youngsters are not coming to the public library is unimportant, he said, as long as they are continuing to read. It was suggested that Mr. Dew meet with school librarians. ivill meet Thursday Lethbridge city council will meet again Thursday at 7 p.m. to consider business Ml over from Tuesday's meeting. Council Tuesday held two pub- lic meetings on zoning bylaw amendments, heard from one delegation and dealt with two the items previously laid on table.
