Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 16, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, September 16, 1970- Chamber Tour Visits Cranbrook By IMC SWIHAHT Staff Writer CRANBROOK Fifty three Lethbridge business and pro- fessional men put the wraps on the first day of the two-day Lethbridge Chamber of Com- merce Howdy Neighbor trip to this East Kootenay centre yes- terday, highlighted by a tour of Crestbrook Industries Ltd. The 4th annual charter Day- liner tour left Lethbridge at a.m. Tuesday and arrived in Cranbrook at p.m. in what was termed by Chamber Manager Wilf Bowns "one of the best opening days for the tour on record." Although the daily worries of business were generally left behind, some persons were in- volved in discussions ranging from the stock market and the wheat glut situation to banking systems. Some of the highlights of the trip to Cranbrook included ex- clamations from avid hunters when the bountiful supply of British Columbia wildlife was spotted when the tour reached Cranbrook, the train was met by Murray McFarlane, Cran- brcok chamber secretary and Jim Dalton, chamber presi- dent, j Following the tour of thei Crestbrook plant, the Leth bridge guests were ushered to various overnight accommoda- tion sites by members of. the Cranbrook chamber and ther to a smorgasbord banquet pul on by the local chamber. Guests at the banquet in- cluded Nelson Chamber Presi- dent Cornelius Van Pelt, Cran- brook Alderman George Harris and Kimberley Chamber Vice- President Frank Aikms. Mr. Aikins is also a director of the British Columbia chamber. Lethbridge Mayor Andy An- derson in his address to the 125 people at the banquet, stressed the similarities of the host city and Lethbridge. 'We both are interested in higher education, cultural growth and recreation which are essentials to any commun- ity he said. 'The inter-dependence of the two industrial areas can't be overlooked and both centres can be considered bright eco- nomic spots in Canada todav.1' The tour continued today with travel to Fernie and a visit with the Fernie chamber and a tour of the Kaiser Re- sources Ltd., coal strip-mining project. The tour will conclude with a meal hosted by the Pincher Creek Chamber on the return trip to Lethbridge. PAOLA'S ITALIAN RESTAURANT Cor. 6th Ave. and 13th St. N.

Permit For Apartments A SDdO.Ol'O building permit las been issued to B and 1-1 Homes (Edmonton) Ltd. for construction of two 32-suite apartments at 3509 and 3521 Ashgrove Road. The two apartment blocks, made up of two and three-bed- room suites, are the first half of a planned 128-suite develop- ment. Plans call for the second half )f the project to get under way )y the end of the year. ward Group Lacks Funds The financial position of the John Howard Society in Leth- jridge remains grave following Monday's board meeting, chair- man Dr. Frank Harper said Tuesday. He said no immediate solu- ions had been found to the problem of balancing the so- liety's budget this year, al- hough it had been decided to appi-oach the United Appeal nth a request for further help in improving the group's cash position. The society was turned down last week by city council when it asked for a grant, needed to balance the 1970 budget. Dr. Harper said the United Safety Council Meeting Set The Lethbridge and District Safety Council will meet Thurs- lay at p.m. in the Park 'laza Motor Hotel. Unauthorized Soliciting The Herald was informed to- day by an official of the Meals on Wheels that an unauthorized person has been soliciting re- cipients for Hie hot meals pro- gram. The official stressed that Meals on Wheels personnel do not call senior citizens, but that the recipient must call the Meals on Wheels office to take part in the new service. The telephone number for Meals on Wheels is 327-7990. Appeal would be asked if there was any funds available at the present time to help out im- mediately. The possibility of an increase in the society's request from the 1971 budget (which has already been submitted) will also likely be discussed, he said. Alternative means of raising Light Damage In Store Fire The Lethbridge fire depart- ment answered a call at a.m. today from Italian Im- ports at 13th St. and 6th Ave. N. Damage to the store was re- ported to be light. The origin of the fire has not yet been determined. Fire officials are investigat- ing. money were also discussed at the board meeting he said, al- though these would not come to fruition for some time. The society is handicapped somewhat in terms of fund- raising activities in that, as a member of the United Appeal, it must avoid activities such as door-to-door canvassing that might interfere with the United Appeal campaign.

Phone 327-1541 In past years the meeting has been held directly following the civic elections; however under new legislation there is an elec- tion only once every three arrangements years, so other must be made.

Trustees also approved Nov. 26 as the date for a joint city- school board meeting, at which separate school trustees will join public school trustees and city aldermen and officials for a special dinner. The agenda will include state- ments by city officials including Tom Nutting, the new city man- ager, who will disucss the city's proposed capital development expenditures and compare notes with school officials on their school plans.
