Walking is supposed to be the favorilc form the highways. Cerlainly more than walkers. (Hitchhikers of exercise in (he country, but surely bicycling is giving il a push now, especially Ihc 10-specd variely. On your don'l count in the walking Kcrber Photo Many part-time spots Student summer jobs do exist Ity HF.HNICK JIKRMC 'jfcrnld Saff Writer Jobs of any soil arc not easy to come by, Init iL seems a lot easier lo loc.'jlc a part-time or casual joh than to land a full- time one, "The available jobs arc be- coming more and more part- lime. It's a nraUcr of progres- sion, said Hod Ixmias coordin- ator of tho Jlirc-a- Stuclcnt office. During ihc cnrl of July and Ihc beginning of August em- ployers drm't hire students fuli- lirrc anymore. Tlic fuli-timo jobs usually begin iji May or June." Mr. said most stu- dents coming to the Student Of- fice for a regular job (one which includes more than five working He said in spile of lliis ac- tion, most of the people who arc serious about working will take a pact-lime or casual job (one which offers less than five working He explained thai casual jobs had worked out "finite well" v.'illt the beet industry in cm Alberta. The students fill- ed a lot of the ca.sual jobs that were Available because of the shortage of migrant workers. Mr. Lomas said he feels "it's an employers market." The students have lo be around lo lake the jobs, when they are available and when the employers have some work to offer lo them. "Most of the 15 and 1C year- olds don't mind parl-timc work Ixrcause Ihc majority of Ihcm aren't ready lo work on a regu- lar ba.sis said Mr. Lomas. The part-time job provides Ihom with pocket money. He pointed out that Ihc im- portant thing lo remember ttbont casual jobs is that they "can't be held." The employers usually want someone who will be able to do the immediately. "I feel thai anyone who is 1R or over and really wanted a regular job this summer .should have one by now. Most of the students have had jobs since the first of June. "The joh (hey look may not be the Ixssl job in Itic world, or the joh they wanted, but if they wanted lo work badly enough they wouldn't mind taking said Mr. Lomas. Garret Palmer o' 1-103 13th Avc. S, used to be one of the office's regular customers for ca.sual jobs. He got the regular job lit; has now, with the National Historic Sites Survey through the Man- power office. "I think (here is a job for anyone who really wants lo work. A lot of people don't real- ly want lo said Garrctt. He said lie worked part-time at the beginning of (his sum- mer anil all of last summer, and he didn't mind it at all. Garrell admitted that some of the ca.sual job hours are not always convenient "one job I had I worked from midnight until 4 he pointed out he had to work this sum- mer as he is married and plaas to go back to university in the fall. "You really have to hustle yourself. I went down lo the student office every each job I'd go down there to check if maybe something had come in that 1 could Gar- rell said. Judy Aitkcn of MIR 2nd Ave. S. agrees that "you have to work at gelling a job." Judy took several casual jobs before siie got the regular joh she now has at the Park Plaza Motor Hotel.

Water everyivhere but no mosquitoes Mosquitoes haven't been bit- ing too bad, Or have they?

The city has sprayed more In secticide this year than last however, mainly to cover pool of stagnant water left by hig levels of the Oldman River thi spring. Mosquito control this year Is likely to cost the city more tha: the cast last year. A pine Spray Ltd. tins the con tract. The insecticide malatlu'on used with fuel oil, said th henllh officer. Tile insecticide is poison while the nil smothers Ihe mos quitoes born in water. Spraying is not done nea drinking water, Dr. Byrne em phasizcd.

Mosquitos live six to eigh weeks, so spraying is continue from April to September. Temporary mosquito contro involves spraying lo kill larva worm-like mosquito tha emerges from the egg inlc water. Long term mosquito centre involves cleimlnaling breedin places. Dr. Byrne said swamp and other stagnant water IKK ies arc eliminated when (her is time and money. People outside the city, whei there are no mosquito contrc measures, .should have scree windows and doors on the dwellings and use which come in liquid, cream o spray forms. -Thgnday, Avguil 3, 1972 THE LETHBR1DGE HERAID 13 Lawn disease coutrolable Fairy Ring, a common lawn iscase in the Lcthbridgc area an be prevented.
