Here, concrete is poured into metal forms for the maturing warehou se. Work is also in progress on the main plant. Sixty men, including supervisory staff, are working on the project. Stone and Webster, Canada ttd. is the managing and engineering firm overseeing construction with six prime contractors also involved. The plant is located at 9lh Ave. and 28th St. N. The city has been asked to work out a plan for malls in the downtown business district. The subject is not new, but has been revived by Ihe Down- town Merchant's Association to be considered with discussions on parking in the downtown area. A committee set up last spring at the request of city council to review the parking situation has shown litlle pro- gress. The downtown merchants, who were included in commit- tee discussions, have only touched on the mall question with reference to a parking lot set-up to replace the present on-street parking. "It's only in the nucleus DMA representative Rod Draffin said. COST STUDY City engineer Randy Holfeld said his department will be doing a cost and feasibility study on downtown malls. A few years ago, the city proposed a similar scheme, involving covered malls on 6th and 7th St. S. between 3rd and 4th Ave. The plans were op- posed by the downtown mer- chants and subsequently dropped. As an immediate solution to downtown traffic and parking problems, the traffic advisory committee has come out against all angle parking. Mr. Holfeld said with the existing 64-foot width of the streets downtown, replacing angle parking with parallel parking stalls would create four-traffic lanes and would pre- clude making the streets wider. At the last council meeting, Alderman EM Eastedo castigat- ed the engineering department for failing to widen 5th St. S. when an obvious opportunity was there replacing a side- walk. Mr. Holfeld said "new influ- ences within the past month have caused us to reconsider the parting situation in the downtown area." He would not elaborate. One change, def- inite. The city has cancelled its lease with Marathon Real- ty on the Hull Block and will discontinue its parking lot on the property at the end at the month. City expressway council subject Exploitation growing Students can't afford Lethbridge By RON CALDWELL Herald Staff Writer Lclhbridge needs a housing authority to put the skids on the growing exploitation of students attending college and univer- sity, says Wendy Rasmussen, housing co orctinator at the Community College. 'Students are being exploit- ed, there's no doubt about she said. Miss Rasmussen said some people are trying to take ad- vantage of a student housing shortage to line their own poc- kets by renting second-class fa- cilities for penthouse prices. When it became known that studenls at LCC desperately needed accommodation, rents began to soar. Room and board prices jumped to a month and higher while the usual ask- ing price is about One person who offered lo rent to a student even stipulated that the amount of rent woulc depend on how much the stu- dent weighed, maintaining that Ihe bigger the student, the more they would cat.

The annual summer lour is sponsored by Ihe Whoop-Up chapter of (he Historical So- ciety cf Alberta. MOVING? CALL OWEN AGENTS FOR ALLIED VAN LINES The need for such an authority evident, she said, because of e large student population in omparison with the size of the ty.

Jitiss Rasmussen added that icre is at least one instance of student who dropped out of LCC and enrolled in another ollege in a larger city because f the cost of renting suitable iving quarters in Lcthbridge. City man named Napi director Paul Raczka, 29, o( Lcth- jridge, has been named Ihe new executive director of the Napi Friendship Association in Pincher Creek. Educated at the University ot Mexico, Mr. Raezka has worked with native people in Ontario, Mexico and New York. He has published several ar- ticles on ethnohistory of vari- ous native peoples including the North Plains Indians. Mr. Raezka replaces Reg Newkirk who resigned the post to become a human rights of- ficer for the province. Gty hall too small, says Nutting Expansion of city hall office facilities is not too far down the road and has been brought up for city council consideration Monday. A report from the community services department puts the city's office space requirements at square feet more during the next 10 years. "Every area of cily hall Is crowded and inconvenient and extremely costly to renovate for proper functional City Manager Tom Nutting said in a letter to council. Alternatives to ease the space problem include making use of the city hall annex, the Gait Building and the existing pub- lic library for office space. The cost of renovating these build- ings, however, rule them out, Mr. Nutting said. He suggests the city deal with the senior governments ta acquire space in the civic cen- tre area by summer, 1973. Fail- ing thai, the cily should plan for major expansion of city hall. One recommended renovation which council is likely to ac- cept is for a new council cham- bers. An extension of the build- ing, cither over the front en- trance or over the parking lot, would give the aldermen the extra meeting space they have been seeking. The next step toward provid- ing a ring-road, expressway system for the ctiy w i 11 go be- fore city council The engineering department has recommended the hiring of two consulting firms to do stud- ies and designs for improve- ments to 43rd St. and to 5th Ave. N. and 1st Ave. S. No cost estimate for the stud- ies is given but 75 per cent of the cost will be paid by the province, the rest by the city. If council approves the rec- ommendations, Reid Crowther and Partners Ltd. and DeLeuw, father, Consulting Engineers, both of Calgary, will be hired for the studies. WATER Water In West Lethbridge is also up for council discussion. In a letter to council, City Manager Tom Nutting says that raising of mortgage money for the Weslbridge subdivision could be difficult if a clause in the agreement between the city and Lethbridge Northern Irri rigalion Dislrict remains in effect. The clause exempt's LNID from any claims resulting from seepage or flooding which might occur from irrigation fa- cilities on city property. Mr. Nulling says LNID will remove the clause if the city will indem- nify the district. Council has the authorily lo do so. LAKE LNID Irrigation water is to be used to fill the lake proposed for Weslbridge and lo flow in a man-made stream through the subdivision to the Universi ty of Lethbridge. The council agenda also In- cludes: petition from residents living immediately west of Dun- lop Ford asking that the com- pany's property and adjacent land sales committee ommendalion that expropra- ion proceedings be carried out against K.A.B.O. holdings if hat company does not accept from the city for land off 'forth Mayor Magralh Drive.
