Highs in the 85-80 degree range. That's right, there's more o( the same in store for southern Algerians. The weatherman says there is no immediate end in sight to the current warm spell. The Ihundershowers will tend to cool filings off in the evening, but otherwise the forecast is for a continuation at least for to- day and tomorrow of the warm weather that has blessed the region since the middle of last month. Yesterday's downpour i n Lethbridge just as people were going home for lunch dropped only .09 of an inch of rain on the city. The heavy rainfall lasted only five or 10 minutes. The weather office reported no overnight rainfall at Ken- yon Field. Last night's low was 59 degrees; yesterday's high was only 89, not a record for this date. The hot spell, a blessing or a curse, depending on the indi- vidual's reaction to day after day of sunny skies, has been ivith us since July 13. With the exception of two days of low-70 weather last week, the thermometer has Ken hitting the 80s and 90s every day since that date. Perhaps it happened at a secret session of city council held over the long weekend. It might have been that things got out of hand. Or perhaps not. No one will say, for sure. But cJty hall observers Tuesday morning noted a section of drapes in the coun- cil chambers torn from the wall. The damage had been quietly repaired by Tuesday afternoon.

More interest in new concept The livestock branch of tho Canada department of agricul- ture in the city has become, the right arm of the informa'Jon branch following the Agricultur- al Institute of Canada conven- tion and Whoop-Up Days. Gordon Ross, livestock super- visor for CDA, said several high placed officials with the societies within AIC and sever- al fair board organizations have expressed great interest in Lethbridge facilities and the local fair. Of particular interest is the new concept livestock show at Whoop-Up Days and the feed lots and confined sheep opera- tions in the south. Mr. Ross said the recent Ab- erdeen Angus tour to the south proved tlus. "There was a good cross section of cattlemen, par- from the southern United States, and these men had some real pointed ques- tions about the industry in southern Alberta."
