SPECIAL 28 99 Call Housawares 327-5767 DOWNTOWN Twelve separate agreements are to be worked out in negotiations beginning today between the Civil Service Association (CSA) and the Alberta, government, the union president says. Bill Broad said in a telephone interview from Edmonton the agreements, one for each division of the civil service, cover units based on job categories. Some divisions, such as the one including clerks, include employees of nearly all departments. In others only a few are involved. Higher salaries, tighter contract wording and a cost of living adjustment (COLA) are among the issues, said Mr. Broad He said he believes the recent raise given to civil servants was not a blunder, but a very well thought-out plan to separate: the employees from the executive (of the The raise, announced last week, led to a CSA demand that Labor Minister Bert Hohol resign.

One building was completed and opened to tenants in Jan- uary, the other is not quite ready. The only appreciable difference in the buildings is they were built eight months apart. But the one already open rents one-bedroom suites for while the new one will offer them next month at The reason? Today's higher mortgage rates. Forty units of condominiums are opening in Park Meadows, in northeast Lethbridge, this fall charging rents of for two-bedroom units and for three- bedroom units. But if the project was just being financed today, the rents upon completion would be up by at least a month each. The reason? Today's higher mortgage rates. Condominium luckily already financed. High rental feared The two identical buildings are on Palm Road in the southeast section of the city. Builder-owner Holger Frandsen has a third parcel of land nearby that seems ideal for a third building. But Mr. Frandsen is afraid to go ahead with the third building, says Bruce McKillop, the city realtor who manages the apartments for Mr. Frandsen. "He's afraid of the rents he would have to charge to show a return on his Mr. McKillop told The Herald. The rent Mr. Frandsen would have to charge could not be reduced in the future if the rental market demanded because he would then earn less on the building than it cost to finance its construction. "So he's going to wait until interest rates settle down a bit." Mr. McKillop says. "Most builders feel the same Builders who construct apartment buildings today must pay about 12 per cent for their money. If interest rates remain at that level for some considerable time, builders will likely go ahead and seek mortgage money and get on with it. Chance rates will drop But few builders have faith in the interest rates staying at 12 per cent. There's a chance they'll go even higher than 12 per cent. And if builders could count on that some would likely scramble for today's 12 per cent money. And there's also a chance rates will drop lower than 12 per cent perhaps as early as next summer. So if developers build with today's 12 per cent money they would not be able to compete in rents with builders who wait and build cheaper mortgage money. review Mr. Frandsen and others like him are content to just sit it out. They are putting their money into less risky ventures. The Park Meadows condominiums were built by Engineered Homes Ltd. with money costing 10 per cent. Rents there are for two bedroom units and for three-bedroom units. "But if we'd built those units with money costing us 12 per cent, rents would be up from what they are now maybe more." says Keith Bickerton. local manager for Engineered Homes. Strong young players make Anne enchanting By JOAN WATERFIELD "I'll imagine that I like it." says Anne when confronted with a well-made but dull dress. And for the first part of the Charlottetown Festival production of Anne of Green Gables it seemed that the capacity audience at the Yales Memorial Centre would have to adopt a similar philosophy Saturday. Perhaps it was that the cast had not worked with the small set for over two weeks. Two sets leapfrog the production on its national tour. Perhaps it's just the vehicle, with its pleasant enough hodge-podge of songs and situations that range from the simply charming to the mcreiy make-weight. But there can be no doubt that Avonlea really came alive Saturday evening with the arrival of the production's Anne. Malorie-Ann Spiller. The 20-year-old, who first played Anne in a Kitchener semi-professional production. threw herself fully into the role. Singing and dancmg with buoyancy, she was a joyful evocation of Lucy Maud Montgomery's dream-child. With some shading in the and it must be remembered that here she was using the full force of her talents to get the show moving, she could be the best Anne of all. No less can be said of Calvin McRae. Gilbert Blythe is real- ly a bit of a nonentity. But not in the hands of this bright youngster. He has a very plea- sant light voice, particularly suited to musical theatre and his dancing is athletic, dis- ciplined and full of vitality.

Home freezers hot commodity By MURDOCH MACLEOD Herald Staff Writer Home freezers are a hot commodity in these days of high food prices, and a survey of Lethbridge appliance dealers shows no let up in a shortage that is at least 12 months old. Dealers can't get a steady supply of freezers, and some must be wondering what a freezer looks like. The problem is one of world wide shortages, according to those contacted by The Herald. "We were lucky. We got five last week." said Alf Calhoun, assistant manager of Eaton's large appliance department. Eaton's has had eight or 10 freezers in the last month, and the head office will not take orders for them, he says. Stores are allotted consignments of freezers when they are available, said Mr. Calhoun. Parts for freezers are also short, he says. Compressors, which provide the cooling in freezers, are short all over the world, he says. He keeps an electric appliance trade magazine handy to show disappointed customers the Fund ahead of last year Halfway through the cam- paign, the Lethbridge United Way has collected about 15 per cent of its objective, a cam- paign reeling was told today. Fifty per cent should have been collected, campaign chairman Leona Hopkins said. But executive director Dave Wilson said the amount was about greater than at the same time last year. The campaign, which ends Oct. 15. has an objective of full extent of the shortages involving freezers. He blames strikes, and workers loafing on the the shortages. Peter Sereni. manager of Towne and Country Furniture, says compressors are a major cause of shortages for his suppliers. He has not been over-supplied or under-supplied with refrigerators, but has only had seven freezers this year. The industry has been short all year because of strikes and steel shortages, he said. Prices of freezers have risen as have the prices of almost every thing, he says. But purchasers get good value for their money with household appliances because they operate efficiently, he said. Some freezers are operating in their 20th year, says Mr. Sereni. Conrad Plettell, vice- president of Smith's Color TV and Appliances Ltd.. said freezers have been hard to get all summer, but are becoming obtainable. "They're coming in dribs and drabs." he said. His store recently received a carload of freezers, he added. But Mr. Plettell also referred to the compressor supply problem. Freezer prices have risen between and in the last two years, he says. They now range from for a seven cubic foot model to for a 15 cubic foot upright freezer.
