The committee meeting, to Drive Zoning On Agenda For Tonight An amendment to the zoning bylaw to allow higher density standards along Mayor Ma- grath Drive was one of sev- eral items on the city council j agenda for Monday night which will be dealt with tonight. Council adjourned until 7 o'clock tonight when it became obvious many items could not be covered without extending the meeting into the early mor- ning hours. First reading to the amend- ment was given July 13. If be held Aug. 31, will include representatives from Lelh- bridge schools administration, because of the involvement of school bus service in the mat- ter. Northern has charged that increased competition from the transit system has resulted in a serious loss of business. A report in response to the charges has been prepared by the city in which it is stated that at no time has the city system arbitrarily cut prices. Aldermar Jim Anderson said he was concerned about the transit system's profit, but not the firm. expense of a private passed, it would open the way for high-rise commercial de- velopment along the Drive.

Gas Price Increase Opposed City council Monday decided to wait until details of the sub- mission to the Public Utilities Board by Canadian Western Natural Gas Co. Ltd. were made available before planning any further action against a proposed rate increase by CWNG. Tom Nutting, city manager, on instruction from council, has informed CWNG of t h e city's opposition to the planned in- crease and has requested copies of t h e company's sub- mission to the board. Deputy Mayor Rex Little said that when the details of the increase are known the city can then plan a course of ac- tion and also try to enlist the support of private firms and other communities in the area in opposing the CWNG move.

PHONE 327-2822 Health Study- Supported City council Monday went on record as supporting a study on the feasibility of integrating the administration of health and social services in Lelh- bridge and district. The move was in reply to request from Dr. Scott Angus, chairman of the Lethbridge and Region Mental Health Planning Council. It was noted by several mem- bers of council that the intent of the proposal, to provide bet- ter co-ordination of mental and physical health services for the individual, was clear but there was some doubt as to how the integration would actually be implemented. Dr. Angus told council the form of the governing board would be hard to predict at this point, but that all he was ask- ing for was approval in prin- ciple for the idea. Tennis Courts Move Urged A committee to be set up by City Manager Tom Nutting will deal with a request by the Lc.libridge Tennis Club for help in moving to larger and mere adequate facilities.

Kotcli States Position On Coach Steve Kotch, president of Northern Bus Lines, told the Herald today that no one has advised him 'i'hethe.r the Lions Club will be able to operate the Callow Coach' this coming year or not. "We operated the Coach for the Lions Club when they were unable financially to do Mr. Kotch. said, "they had been running it as a taxi ser- vice for everyone and naturally this wasn't economically sound. When they ran out of money they were happy to have us take it over and run. it for them. Eventually we ceased oper- ating it, in agreement with the Club, but we received so many calls from people wanting it back in service again that it seemed sensible for us to vol- unteer to take it over com- pletely." Mr. Kotch said he would like to see the coach back in ser- vice again, particularly to aid handicapped persons. We're in the bus business and naturally people want us to supply service for everyone. We were prepared to do so, up- dating the coach. However if Lions Club is prepared to do Four Break-Ins In City Overnight C'ij police were kepi busy I SI.
