The application is being made by Gilbey Canada Ltd. which is acting on behalf of it; parent company, International Distillers, on an interim basis, The over-all development, ex- pected to cost several millions of dollars, is contingent upon the company receiving ap- proval and a grant under the federal government's area in- centives program. A spokesman for the com- pany said it intends to make aplication for an option to pur- chase the site in Lethbridge's industrial park, but whether the plant would be built would not be definitely decided until the fe_deral government-makes a decision regarding the grant. It is expected the distillery, if built, would be a major de- velopment, making a signifi- cant contribution to the eco- nomy of Lethbridge and dis- trict. Another large development coming before the commission is the Lethbridge Treadway Inn, plans for which were an- nounced early this month. The million, nine-storey motor hotel is to be built east of Gait Gardens, just north of 3rd Ave. S.

Perfumes And Sprays Used To Combat Sewer Odors By HERB JOHNSON Herald Staff Writer A rose by any other name would smell as sweet, accord ing to William Shakespear and a sewer is very likely tc smell like one, according t the city's engineering depart ment. City residents on 5th Ave. N have recently had this fac brought home to them, follow ing installation this summer o an interceptor sewer along the avenue from 13th St. to 10th St The sewer is intended to tab some of the industrial sewage load off the line along 2nd Ave N., and its contents can be par icularly obnoxious. Complaints from residents o the area are met at city hal reassurances that the city is doing everything in its pow er to overcome the problem. The problem, of course, is not peculiar to Lethbridge. It is a fact of life in any modern city, especially where there is a fair amount of industry. Irv Fraser, city waterworks and sewage engineer, who re turned recently from a confer ence in Toronto, said that city is currently encountering ma jor problems with smelly sew age. He also noted that a majo Alberta city north of Leth- bridge, when contacted for pos sible solutions to the problem had advised the engineering department to "acquire a largi supply of clothespins." The advice, while facetious does point up the difficulties cities are having. Lethbridge is attempting to overcome the smell in severa ways. The sewer line odors are attacked by adding a masking agent to the sewage as it goes ihrough the lift station. Mr. Fraser said that while he city has experimented with different types of chemicals, mait of them are design- ed basically to simply cover up he smell, much like a per- ume. In Observance Of JEWISH NEW YEAR Progress Clothing Ltd. Will Be Closed Thursday and Friday, Oct. 1st and 2nd Re-Opening for business at usual Saturday, Oct. 3rd, 8.30 a.m. He added however that with of the industrial sewage in- the 5th Ave. N. lift station pumping 5 tons a minute the problems of covering the smell House Drive Nets For Appeal Approximately was collected by canvassers Mon- day evening in the house to house blitz of the United Ap- peal campaign. This figure is about less than collected in total in 1969. Mrs. Elaine Bartel, chairman of this part of the canvass, in- dicated that with the call-backs necessary and the donations sent in by people who were not home, the final figure will prob- ably equal that of last year. Drug Case Remanded Rodney Wayne Hillman, 18, of Lethbridge, charged with pos- session of hashish for the pur- pose of trafficking, appeared in magistrate's court in Calgary Monday and had his case re- manded to Oct. 15 for prelim- inary trial. Hillman was arrested Sept. 14 at Calgary International Air- port after he arrived on a flight from Vancouver. He was re- leased on cash bail. volved are tremendous. Another approach is to at- tack the problem at the point where it becomes noticeable to city residents. Crews, using a device simi- lar to a garden spray, spray the manholes periodically with a de-odorizer. The city's efforts to elim- inate the smell do not stop there. Atomizer sprays were installed this spring at the south side sewage treatment plant. Operating continuously from the plant roof, they mix a fine spray witii the odor from the plant, much like the aerosol spray can used in a home. A similar device is in use at the north-side plant, but has run into technical problems and likely will have to be re- placed. Ted Lawrence, city engineer- ing director, said there is no easy solution to the problem, which tends to vary according to the atmospheric conditions. Local residents may simply have to accept it as a fact of life in a city that is becoming more industrialized, he said. Efforts to overcome the smell are continuing, he said, and better methods may be found.
