Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 9, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE LETHDRIDGE HERAID Monday, Augusl 9, 1971 id you do to beat the weekend heat?

Herald photo- grapher Bryan Wilson dis- covered city residents en- gaged in a variety of sum- merlime activities, making the best of a hot situation. The lure of the poo] was the answer for many, as kids and parents plunged in together to splash away the afternoon, while a breezy bike ride appealed to others. For those who enjoy more sedate activities, just sitting around watching the girls go by was enough. If you can't escape the heat, might as" well enjoy its "fringe" benefits. THE BOWMAN WALLACE CO.
