L-bathers first in new baths
   Giving a progress report on the new Baths at the monthly meeting of Wigan Town Council on Tuesday, Baths Committee Chairman Councillor T. Monks revealed that the pool will be used for swimming instruction before it is opened to the general public.
   Councillor Monks said that the pool was almost completely full and after the school holidays the Baths might be used for swimming instruction. This would depend on whether the water heating system was doing its job properly.
   "If everything is going well we shall then open the Baths to the general public," said Councillor Monks.
   He added that both pools in the old baths would be in action again next week after repairs to the filter system and work would shortly begin on the modernisation and alteration of these baths.
   On Wednesday, the Baths Manager, Mr. T. E. Millar, told the Observer that he had still received no definite handing-over date from the contractors working on the new baths.
   "Until we are given that date it is impossible to say when the official opening will take place," he said. "But it will be possible, when the seating and fittings around the pool are completed, to open the baths for organised parties of schoolchildren."
   "I should think it will be three or four weeks before the general public can be allowed in."
