E r w i n Adderley, executive director of the Oldman River Regional Planning Commis- sion, said plans being made now should alleviate the prob- lem in subdivisions opening up in the future, but there was no ready solution to current diffi- culties in finding one's way around in a maze of crescents. The Lakeview area came in for particular mention and sev- eral suggestions, i n c 1 u ding small maps of the area, were brought forth as possible solu- tions. The various city depart- ments will work on the prob- lem; possible answers will be submitted to council. The city manager was also requested to investigate the possibility of the city using an occupancy permit as a means of ensuring that conditions at- tached to development permits were met. Developers would be allowed to occupy the building only after the city was satis- fied they had complied with the conditions imposed by the commission. Just Arrived!

Your Franchlscd Dealer for Nikon, Zeijj ikon, Mamiya, Bell and Howoll, Braun and Kodak Darkroom Equipment and Supplici Gundlock Says Western MPs May Have Been 'A By JOAN BOWMAN Herald Staff Writer Lcthbridge MP Deane Gund- lock said today western Pro- gressive Conservative MPs may have been "a bit rash" in discussing the leadership in a closed meeting in Saskatoon late in August. However the fact that party leader Sobcrt Stanfield had not been invited was not unprece- dented. Mr. Gundlock, who was in- vited but did not attend the meeting, said western mem- bers bad held conferences be- fore without telling the leader. The Lethbridge Conservative MP said in a telephone inter- riew from Ottawa that when- jver criticisms are made with- n the party, the leader irievi- ably comes in for some blame. "But there is no movement in he party to get rid of Stan- ield." He indicated the subject of he leadership had been raised in MP meetings in the Mari- imes and Toronto, "but it just seemed to be more noticeable his time." According to reports out of Saskatoon, the 30-d e 1 e g a t e meeting had put aside discus- sion of a federal agricultural committee study on a farm marketing bill for some harsh criticisms of Mr. S'ifflifield. Jack Homer, Alberta MP for Irowfoot, was allegedly the eader of a six-man delegation which planned to tell Mr. Stan- field that party fortunes would be improved without him at the next federal election. Mr. Gundlock said there was "no real commotion" about the reports and Mr. Stanfield was not "unduly disturbed." However Mr. Stanfield "can get pretty tough." Mr. Gundlock said the leader had been explicit in his de- mand Wednesday at a caucus in Ottawa that such discussions were not to happen again. Mr. Gundlcck said he did not attend the Saskatoon meeting because of prior engagements. TOMATO TREE Louis Tolsma of 2007 1st Ave. U. "just knew this tomato plant was really going to and it did, 10 feet high. Fruit on the plant was over eight feet off the ground. Of course, as seen in the fore- ground of this picture, plants in Mr. Tolsma's tomato patch have to be at least three feet high to compete for the sunshine. Prebuilt Plant Has Million Job C. 0. Merriman, president of- Prebuilt Industries Ltd. of Lethbridge and Calgary, said his firm has been awarded a million industrial camp con- tract. The award was made by the head office of Stearns-Rog- er Canada Ltd. Prebuilt will supply complete living accomodation and re- creation facilities for up to G50 workers during the construc- tion of Canada's largest non- ferrous 'mine and mill west of Kandoops, B.C. Owner of the project is Lornex Mining Cor- poration Ltd., a consortium of Japanese and Canadian mining firms. Some 130 building sections will be constructed at Pre- built's Lethbridge factory for transportation to the mine site where they will be assembled into a complex containing cen- trally heated, self-contained living quarters, recereation halls and an efficient well equipped kitchen for workers on the site. Horse Show Starts Tonight Chamber In Problem Of Drugs The Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce has been urged to set up a dialogue between the business community and stu- dents, to deal with ths matter of drug use. Cliff Black, chairman of the chamber's special committee dealing with the report of the Le Dain commission on drugs, said the chamber's action should be immediate and give special consideration to the economic aspects of the Le Dain report. Mr. Black made his plea at the chamber lunch- eon Wednesday. S'ome of the economic as- pects suggesetd by Mr. Black include: expanded hospital staff to care for drug users; rock festivals requiring addi- tional police control; action by insurance companies screening drug users when issuing poli- cies; use of drugs by those in industry and service, resulting poor workmanship: incrcas-1 has lots of money and can't social welfare needs by decide whether to go to Eu- Drug Store Theft Brings Jail Term ing those unemployable because of drug use. Mr. Black said the Le Dain report ignored the economic implications of drug use and abuse. He said he felt the re- port was aimed at trying to provoke society to some action in the drug problem. He said the drug problem lo- cally was likely to increase. At present, drug use by Grade 9 students in city schools could 'ange from six per cent to 50 per cent. He said Lethbridge schools have the same prob- em as other city schools across Canada. The Le Dain report, said Mr. Black, seems to be for drug ose. He also scorned the news media for a poor presentation of the report. Mr. Black touched on one other economic aspect of drug use and the money involved in drug selling.
