"We have a high standard of life in Lethbridge, and we hope to maintain Aid. Vera Ferguson affirmed as she spoke to about 50 persons meeting for lunch at Sven Ericksen's Family Restaur- ant. Topic for discussion was the quality of life in Lethbridge. Residents had been invited to attend and quiz city council oa moral, spiritual and cul- tural values in Letfabridge. Mayor Andy Anderson and Aid. Steve Kotch were the only elected municipal offi- cials absent. City businessman Jim Dunstan chaired the meeting. Billed as an opportunity "net to make speeches, but to listen while citizens con- ducted their own aldermen nevertheless warm- ed their audience with glow- ing remarks about the quality of life, recreation, the river bottom and "a model town to be constructed Li West- Lethbridge." Since none of Southern Al- berta's ordained clergy were present, council and congre- gation concentrated en tem- poral matters rather than del- ving too far into spiritual and moral matters. "One of the great things about Lethbridge that 1 said Aid. Ed Bastedo, "are the lilacs in Gait Park. When I left Winnipeg to come west, there was six feet of snow oa the ground. The first morning I awoke in my Lethbridge hotel room there were birds twittering and a strong smell of lilacs coming from Gait Park." Dr. Van Christou, city den- tist, supported the ecological qualities. KEEP TREES "Let's hang on to all the trees and lilacs in Leth- Dr. Cfaristou said. "Don't cut down trees just because of seme engineering principle. Trees are sacred here. Let's tell restaurants, hotels and supermarkets they will be retired to landscape their property." But not everyone smelt sweet fragrances arising from the irrigation capital. Retired Canadian Army colonel Kas Kasperski led the charge when he expounded on his first morning in Lethbridge. "The first thing I noticed was the feedlct smell drift- ing up out of the Mr. Kasperski said. "Then I got a parlking ticket and some Indian threatened to smash my teeth in if I didn't give him 50 cents.'1 Mr. Kasperski had much more to say as he went ahead disputing the sparkling jewel of a city presented by the aldermen. "I contribute to the United Way and believe the Leth- bridge YMCA and YWCA receive a portion of those Mr. Kasperski said. "I wanted to use the Y gymnasium for a few games of raquetball. So, I went down to enqjuire if I could play. They told ma I would have to get a membership, that's a year; pay between and for a racquet; for balls and wear Whites and running shoes because jeans aren't allowed. I can't afford that, so walking the coulees is my recreation Lawyer Paul Matisz leaped to his feet and implored coun- cil to take action on pedes- crossings over Mayor Magrath Drive. "I warn you as a lawyer and as a parent that I will sue you as a corporate body, and individually, if something isn't done mighty quick about an overpass or an underpass on Mayor Magrath Drive." Mr. Matisz remanded coun- cil there had been a child killed crossing the busy thor- oughfare 10 years ago, and that school boards had re- quested action be taken to en- sure safer pedestrian cross- ings. Keith Robin, director of continuing education at Leth- bridge Community College, asked for better transit ser- vice. 'Unless there is an evening bus service, some people can't get to the college for night Mr. Robin sffld. "Council doesn't know how many courses we have had to cancel because people have no way of getting out there.'' "There is a limit to the number of services the city can Aid. Ferguson replied.

STUBBS We've been surprised to find that even though it rates in im- portance right along with band- ages and other first aid equip- ment, many homes in our area don't have a clin- lical thermometer iwith which to I take tody temp- jeratures. And do lycu know one of I the biggest rea- Isons why thermo- meters aren't in every home? We've found it's because many people have never learned to read a thermo- meter with -accuracy, and they don't like to admit this. If tins is your problem, please don't feel shy about it. We all had to be taught how to read a ther- mometer. We'll be glad to help you learn us. if you'U just ask We like to say to you from Stubbs Pharmacy each week.

The cattle were removed after the owners were con- tacted by the health unit. There's nothing unusual about finding cattle in the river every spring, said Dr. Adler. "It happens every year. It's been happening for at least the 16 or 17 years I've been here. Cattle will contin- ue to be discovered for the next couple of weeks. "One year there were 40 or 50 pigs found in the river." said today mediatirs from the Industrial Relations Board have returned to Leth- bridge as mediators in the negotiation.
