Ph. 328-8141 1705 M.M. Drive Ph. 328-7751 MFC meet unveih new interchange A two-stage proposal for de- velopment of LIic intcrseclion tit Scenic Drive and Glh Ave. H. was unveiled Wednesday by City Manager Tom Nutting. Mr. Nutting requested the Municipal Planning Commis- sion to approve (he proposal in principle and tlie MFC agreed to consider the mailer at next week's meeting. The proposal, Ihe result of i a study conducted by the en- gineering department, incJudes staged development of Scenic Drive, from 5tli Ave. to 7lh Ave. S. and Glh Ave. from 5th St. S. lo west of Scenic Drive. The study also defines right-of- way requirements for the inter- section. Ted Lawrence, city engineer- ing director said a diamond in- terchange was considered de- sirable to provide for all traf- fic movement at the intersoc- Lion. Stage one of the proposed de- velopment would see the con- struction of interchange ramps off Scenic Drive and the recon- struction of Scenic Drive from 6th Ave. lo 7lb Ave. S. This stage, wilh Oth Ave. crossing Scenic Drive at grade, is expected to accommodate the traffic volume at the inter- section for 10 to 15 years from the dale of completion. The 4th St. S. and Scenic' Drive intersection was also considered in the study with the recommendation that il be maintained during Ihe firsl slage. Parking on Gth Ave. and Sce- nic Drive, east lo 4th St. and north to 5th Ave. would he re- moved and a line of trees es- tablished. The present tree line on Clh Ave. from 4th St. S. eastward would be maintained. The study suggests the exist- ing Indian Battle Park road west from Scenic Drive would he of excessive grade. An al- lernale road from 51h Ave. and Scenic Drive to behind the Sir Alexander Gall Museum and down lo Ihe riverbollom is rec- ommended. Stage two calls for the wide- ning of Gth Ave. to accommo- date six lanes of traffic and would be constructed when the Iralfic volume reaches a suffi- cient level lo w22T2nl six Janes. An extension of 6lh Ave. at that time is to go under Scenic Drive to connect wilh Ihe Old- man River crossing. A seven-degree grade down the east side of the coulees is proposed to meet with a bridge which will be GO to 70 feet above the Oldman Rjver. The proposal must get Ihe approval of the provincial de- partment of highways. At any rale, it will be a couple of years before anything concrete develops at the intersection.

Partially fill- ing the 500-seat Yates was what is usually called a "small hut appreciative audience." While it is generally accepted today that a chamber music concert will not draw as well as a rock group, certainly the One Third Ninth deserved a better audience, at least in terms of numbers. Another 200 people could have squeezed in with little trouble. Those that did brave the weather amply rewarded. While il may not have been an evening for being overwhelmed by technical virtuosity least for the first hah" of the there was never any doubt about the trio's ability. Everyone played well, al- though cellist John Kadz seem- ed to come through less strong- ly than he might have in '.he Mendelssohn Trio No. 1 in D Minor that opened the concert. Several short pizzicalo sec- tions were almost inaudible, i[ that is worth worrying about. Full of sweeping, dramatic melody and cascading runs for lie piano, it was a good open- ing for an excellent concert. For contrast, the trio moved to Beethoven's Trio in G Ma- jor, Op. 121 a set of varia- tions on a folk tune, Ich bin dcr Schneider Kakadu. After a long and solemn in- troduction (a device used later on another folk song by Erno Dohnanyi) Uie sprightly theme comes as a (welcome) sur- prise. The variations were cleanly played, with well-con- trolled balance between the three instrumcnls. The highlight of the evening concluding Trio by was the Maurice Havel.

Phono 327-3555 group was obviously committed to making good music in the first half of the concert, it seemed to save its best effort for Ravel. Perhaps Ravel's music ex- ploits better the resources of Lhe three instruments. Perhaps the players felt a closer musi- cal affinity to Ravel than to Mendelssohn or Beethoven. Or perhaps this writer is simply very biased. For whatever reasons, the in- dividual players seemed each to sound better. And as a group they rose to the chal- lenge of Ravel's music and whispered and shouted and danced Iheir way through the work with obvious enjoyment. Their technique caused one member of the audience who insisted he hated Ravel lo ut- ter an involuntary "wow" at the end of the second move- ment. An added touch to the eve- ning was (he short introductory commentary provided by each of the players in turn before each work. Not a condescend- ing explanation of how to lis- ten to the music, but rather an insight into how Ihe musi- cians themselves saw the mu- sic.

In the immediate Lethbridge area, .27 of an inch of mixed rain and snow fell since JO p.m. Wednesday, hailing QIC harvest of sugar beets. Gerald Snow, field supervisor for Canadian Sugar Factories Ltd., said Ihe precipitation has caused a spotty situation, which although il is loo early to weigh the affects, has slopped harvest in the majority of the 42.000 acres. Mr. Snow said the present weather conditions cause wet ground conditions, making it impossible to operate a tractor or sugar beel harvester in the fields. He said there is not enough precipitation on the ground now lo halt the harvest for long. "Some sunshine and drying condilions and Ihe harvest will be ui full swing before long. "We will return to full har- vest as soon as weather per- mits.'' There is 20 per cent cf Ihe total sugar beet crop harvested and hauled lo the stations to dale. Ted Wilson, head of the Leth- bridge weather station said the wet conditions have been caused by a trough from the British Columbia coast whjch is now above southern Alberta. "There is a northeast flow of air which is causing an np- slope of warm moist air which is falling as snow and he said. There is a ridge following the trough which is moving in an easterly direction and by 5 p.m. today, the ridge line should be at the Alberla-B.C. border. Sunny condilions and warm- er wealher are forecast for to- morrow as the ridge passes through soufherii Alberta.

The snowfall in soi'htem AV- berla was heavier in Ihe moun- lain and foothill regions, get- ling less as the storm progres- ed in an easterly direction. Residents of the Willow Val- ley area said they were for- lunale because only light winds accompanied Iheir 20-inch snow-fall. Pincber Creek, 65 miles west of Lethhridge, reported nine inches of snow or .89 of an inch of precipitation. Roads are heavy but passable. The Walerlou Lakes National Parks administration office re- ported mostly rain, and only a skiff of snow. Walcrton town- site is in a "pocket" in the mountains, an official said, and there was much more snow op Ihe adjacent rolling foothills.
