City May Recall Plant Tenders Secondary Seivage Costs Rise To More Than Million By HERB JOHNSON Herald City Hall Reporter City Manager Tom Nutting said Tuesday there was a pos- sibility the. city might have a second tender call for the city's secondary sewage treatment plant to encourage more of the qualified contractors to submit bids. Mr. Nutting said he felt something, perhaps a large number of other construction projects, had interfered with the bidding. Only five bids were submitted and when these were opened Tuesday the low est was about above the estimated cost. Total cost of the project been estimated by the consul tants, Under wood McLellan and Associates, at Acceptance of the low bid could bring it up to Mi'. Nutting said he could no comment at this time nn the possibility of making cuts ii Bridge Work Progressing Crews started Tuesday on preliminary work for the plan- ned renovations to Lethbridge's 9th St. bridge. There will he no interruption of vehicular traffic for a week or so, although the pedestrian sidewalk on the west side is closed. Crews now are drilling rivet holes for new steel members.

Although it appears all the firms submitting bids were ca- pable of handling the job, the bids are being examined and a report should be ready for the next meeting of council, he said. The low bid was submitted by Lang Construction and Equipment Ltd. of Calgary. Its bid of was for a com- pletion date of Sept. 1, 1971. It did not bid on a Jtme 1, 1971 completion date. Companies were asked to bid on a June 1 completion date, which is one month before the province's deadline, and a date of their own choosing.

North American Simmental Breeders paid a record Cana- dian price to Sim- mental Breeders Cardston Ltd. for the one-year-old animal which was bred in southern Al- berta. Amor, sired by Parisien, the first Simmental bull imported to Canada from Switzerland, was the first pure bred bull eli- gible for export from Canada following law changes restrict- Importation of European cattle into the U.S. Travers Smith, president of the Canadian Simmental Asso- ciation, said the system of quarantine for cattle imported into Canada has been the lim- iting factor for exporting the Simmental breed into the U.S. He said the were imported frcim Switzer- land in 1966-67 and Amor is the first bull to be born as a result of the mating of two pure-bred cattle in Canada. "This is the qualification which allows Eu- ropean cattle export through Canada to the U.S." He said the Simmental pop- ulation with S'immental Breed- ers Cardston Ltd. stands at 14 imported heifers, four Cana- dian-born heifers calves, 11 im- ported bulls and one Canadian- born 'bull. Paul W. Horn, of Fort Worth, Texas, editor of the Cattle- man, said the demand for the Simmental cattle has grown in the U.S. because of the dual purpose growing features of the breed. "They are big cattle, pro- ducing better beef characteris- tics and much better milk pro- ducing records. This means more red meat on the beef cattle and more milk for the calves produced, resulting in bigger calves. "The average six year-old Simmental to eight bull wil CLIFF BLACK, R.D.T., C.D.M.

"In time, females will be im- ported to the U.S. to build a pure-bred herd but all the fe- males imported to Canada or raised in Canada are being put to work in he said. "This bull will be aimed at artificial insemination altogeth- er with some calves raised in the near future to determine the siring traits. "In time semen from the Simmental breed will be made available to all cattle pro- ducers." Mr. Smith said the Cardston syndicate is still importing Simmental cattle from Switzer- land, with permits held by the company to buy more this year. "All bulls with our company are in semen production which is used in Canada and the U.S. and this will make the Sim- mental genetics available to all cattlemen. "The Cardston firm plans to up-grade the Simmental herd to as soon as efforts and means permit." He said the company also does a commission-based busi- ness by selecting cattle in France and S'witzerland for other cattle breeders with per- mits to import cattle. "It is an important distinc- tion that all the cattle we buy are not owned by us." He said semen from the Sim- mental bulls has been used in the U.S. for some time but just last year about vales of semen were shipped across the line. "There has been a tremen- dous interest and acceptance in the Simmental by all breed- ers in the U.S., including pure- bred breeders. "The improvement of beef production has proven to be phenomenal."

'100 More Suites Needed' Students In Trouble' Over Lack Of Housing By JIM WILSON Herald Staff Writer Universityof Lethbridge housing director Dwight Jensen said Tuesday he was "extreme- ly disappointed" with city coun- cil's decision not to relax zon- ing restrictions to allow more basement suites. "We've told them we need at least 100 more suites this year alone, and the situation is get- ting much worse each Mr. Jensen said. "This isn't a once-only thing: the university isn't going away. Next year we'll need 150 more suites and the following years we'll need considerably more." About students from outside Lethbridge will be at- tending U of L and Lethbridge Community College classes this year according to official esti- mates of enrolment. The present campus resi- dence (temporary trailer units) can accommodate 110 students, and the housing office has list- ings for about 600 beds in- cluding only 40 suites. (The other beds include room and board and room-only.) That leaves 600 students without accommodation we can Mr. Jensen said. 'Some of these will no doubt commute or live with relatives the city but at least half of them will simply crowd in three or four to a small room. "That's just not conducive to food study he said. Robin Dann, president of the U of L students' society coun- cil, also expressed disappoint- ment with the city council de- cision. 'The situation was terrible ast year, when we had less he said. "Now we're really in trouble. "But I think what will happen that more people will open up illegal suites (which are in areas not zoned for multiple amity dwellings or which do lot conform to existing regula- ions concerning windows, ilumbing and other matters) demand for places to live will be too attracitve to dis- courage people who want to make a few dollars. "And how many people would say no to a student who simply appeared on their doorsteps asking for somewhere to live, when the people knew they had the makings of a basement suite Suites are currently renting for ?35 to per person, usual- ly with two or three beds if the suites are large enough. Room and board averages to depending on the facili- ties; room and breakfast ranges from to S50; and room-only accommodation av- erages ?35 to a month. Discussion of relaxing base- ment suite restrictions began several weeks ago when Mr. Jensen submitted a proposal to the Municipal Planning Com- mission asking for a review of the regulations. MFC referred the proposal to a special city council meeting, which in turn sent it back to MFC which then recom- mended to council that the situ- ation be left as it is because it would be difficult to police basement suite facilities if reg- ulations were relaxed. Council upheld the recom- mendation. Mr. Jensen said he does not know what else can be done now but suites are still needed. The university lists accom- modations of all lands offered to both university and college students, and listings are made available to all students throughout the year. Mr. Jensen's office inspects all accommodations before list- ing them, to see that they are suitable and that no problems are likely to develop. The university also offers and recommends a special written agreement between the landlord and student or stu- dents, to protect both, and will to some extent arbitrate diffi- culties.

R. L. Jardine, chairman of the Lethbridge branch of the Alberta Motor Association, has urged Highways Minister" Gor- don Taylor to continue widen- ing Highway 3 from Monarch to Fort Macleod. Mr. Jardine said he feels the consequent upgrading this highway would be hi the best interest of the motoricing pub- lic of southern Alberta. He also requested that over- head signs be erected at the in- tersection of Highway 1 and 3 at Medicine Hat, pointing out many visitors apparently miss the existing sign and are caused iaconvenience by hav- ing to double back. Further recommendations dealt with the upgrading and completion of Highway 36 from Taber to Warner, and Highway 3 from Fincastle to Medicine Hat. Mr. Jardine emphasized the importance of Highway 23 as an alternate route to Calgary and Edmonton, and stated the construction of paved shoulders from the junction with High- way 3 to Champion important. was very COMPLETE CARPET AND LINOLEUM INSTALLATION HAMILTON'S FLOOR COVERING LTD. 909 3rd Ave. S.
