There were many individual rooms available but basement suites were in great demand. The commission's decision was based on several factors, including the fact that some of the regulations were enforced not by the city but by the pro- vincial board of health. It was also felt there would be problems with classification, as different regulations con- cerning such things as parking and lot size apply to multi- family units than to single family residences. A previous suggestion that the rules be relaxed on a tem- porary basis was felt to be not feasible and there was also nothing to ensure that the suites would be rented only to university students. In regular business, the com- mission approved a request by the Honpa Buddhist Church to build a church hall at 3611 For- estry Aye. A request from Challenger Investment Ltd. to build a 12- suite apartment at 1915 and 1917 Lakemiount Blvd. was tab- led pending some assurance from the developer that plans for the adjacent lots would be consistent with the apartment block. Pace Of Harvest Quickens In South By STEVE BAREIIAM Farm Writer The hoc summer days of the past week have done much lo ripen grain crops in southern Alberta and harvest is moving into full swing. Yields are down in many cases but quality is high. Swathing and combining wheat is near completion at al points, with yields of 25.bush- els per acre reported in the New Dayton area, compared lo better than 40 last year. Rain- fall in that area since the first part of April was less than five inches. Another half-inch ol rain at the right time would have added five bushels per acre to the yield. Weight of the winter wheat reported by one New Dayton farmer is about 65 pounds per bushel and protein content is expected to be very good. Other yields of winter wheat at south points include: 35-40 bushels at Claresholm, 25 at Pincher Creek, 35 at Cardston, 20 at Taber and 35 at Enchant. Swathing of barley and oats is not generally widespread, but should be in full swing in about 10 days. Yields again are down in some cases, but qual- ity remains very good. Esti- mated yields by Alberta Wheat Pool agents at respective points are: Clarsholm, barley 40 bushels, oats 40 bushels; AGT Cable Project Covers 545 Miles More than Lethbridge and Coaldale rural residents will receive four-party buried cable telephone service in March of next year as a result of an Alberta Government Telephones program. Cable crews recently complet- ed installation of 545 miles of underground cable in the dis- trict at a cost of more than The rural development is part of AGT's program to sup- ply all rural areas of Alberta with modern telephone service by 1974. Said to be one of the nlost extensive in Canada, the system will cost more than million.

The charge was laid after an incident July 29 which sent a Cardston man, Lome Healy, to hospital. Christian McNally Seierson of the city pleaded guilty to an assault charge resulting from an incident at the Woolco Shop- ping Centre July 16. He was fined and costs. SEVEN-LEAF CLOVER Charlene Balog of 1221 13th Ave. N. holds up a seven-leaf clover she and some friends discovered recently while visiting in Taber. Just how much luck the youngsters gained is a moot point. Four leaves are known to bo lucky, whilo five and six are traditionally thought to bring bad luck. There doesn't seem to be any superstition about seven-leaf clovers, but seven has always been regarded as a lucky number. Pincher Creek, barley 35, oats 45; Cardston, barley 40, oats 40; Taber, barley 50, oats 65; Fort Macleod, barley 40, oats 40; Enchant, barley 45, oats 50. Soil conditions for fall seed- ing of winter wheat vary, but are not really good according to reports from the Lethbridge Research Station. It appears the moisture content of much of southern Alberta's summer- fallow is low. A combination of sparse rain and hot days interspersed throughout spring and summer, have set the stage for active weed growth, a pressing prob- lem especially in the Clares- holm, Fort Macleod and Taber districts. A cut-back on herbi- cides by fanners this year may also be a contributing factor in the current weed problem. Harvest of vegetable crops in the south is progressing. Pea fields are being cleaned up and the run on beans is well advanced. Carrots, corn, red beets and pumpkin are other crops to be harvested. GRADUATE Dr. Layne Bixby, son of Mr. and Mrs. H. M.

No. 2 Fire Hall Faces Demolition There is little hope that Leth- bridgs's old No. 2 fire hall will find a new home at Her- itage park in Calgary, Alder- man Steve Kotch said Wednes- day. Appointed by city council to investigate the possibility of having the hall moved to a new site and preserved as an his- toric landmark, Aid. Kotch has been negotiating with Heritage Park, with no results to date. He said it looks very much as it the hall will fall victim to a demolition crew within the next few weeks. Several groups, including the Travel and Convention Asso- ciation of Southern Alberta, have attempted to find the money to move the hall before its pr'esent site on 13th St. N. becomes part of the Centre Village Mall, which is nearing completion. Quoted figures for moving it have ranged from to with another estimated to properly prepare a new site. However Aid. Kotch said he felt these figures may be a little high. A local service club had been given a quote rf only he said. It would not be necessary at this time, to go to the expense of levelling a new site and building a foundation. Simply moving it and putting it on skids would be enough to pre- vent its being demolished, he said. Man Jailed For Forgery Sylas Cardinal, of no fixed abode, appeared in magistrate's court in Lethbridge Wednesday, on four separate charges of forgery and two separate charges of false pretenses. The forgery offences took place in Vauxhall, July 25, and involved the passing of cheques with a farmer's name forged on them. Similar circumstances existed for both charges of false pretenses. Cardinal pleaded guilty to the charges, and was sentenced to six months in jail on each of the forgery charges, and three months on each of the false pre- tense charges.
