The Herald learned Wed- nesday that the LCC housing service may be faced with trying to place about 300 stu- dents in accommodation next week and it only has about 50 accommodations listed for rent. the university projects that about 270 stu- dents will reside in its res- idence this year. That would leave it with a vacancy for 180 students if the double oc- cupancy rooms weren't rent- ed to single occupants. Even if the university de- cides to rent its double occu- pancy rooms for single occu- as requested by sev- eral students who wish to live in a room by it still would be able to accom- modate at least 60 LCC stu- dents. The bus system schedule to and from the university to the city core and to and from the city core to the college wouldn't make living at the U of L residence feasible for LCC the director of LCC student services said in an interview Wednesday. J. L. MacNeil also claimed the college has received no encouragement from the uni- versity in past years when it discussed the possibility of college students renting Car hulk cleanup starts next month An estimated 400-600 auto hulis will be removed from the south end of Marshall Auto Wreckers yard on 2nd Street S. within a month. The removal of the wrecks Is being contracted out by the provincial government which has said it will pay up to 000 of the cost of the work. This money will be paid to the scrap dealer that lands the not to Marshall's or the city. The wrecks will be cleaned out of the coulee and araa bordering the coulee on the south edge of the yard which the city will begin filling with dirt taken from the ap- proaches to the 6th Ave. S. bridge. That work is slated to begin next month. According to Mayor Andy the original agree- ment with Marshall's gives the wreciking yard until next summer to complete the move to its new location on Highway 3 east. John manager of said the firm will move the hulks it figures are worth the cost of transporting to the new location and will leave what it doesn't want for the city to look after. don't want to get rid of any more than we have he said. Pieces are always moving off even the older models and their value is going up as they become more said Mr. Babick.

John city transit supervisor said Wednesday the city bus schedule be- tween the university and the city core coincides with some of the bus runs between the downtown core and the col- lege and with a slight change in schedule times a transfer system' could be worked out that would make commuting from the university to the college feasible. they would supply us with a schedule we could help them out he said. The college has not ap- proached the city about a busing schedule that would make it convenient for LCC students to commute from the IT of L residence. Mr. Frouws said the city would be pleased to make some type of busing arrange- ment if it means the buses operating between the univer- sity and the city will carry passengers both ways. At the present time the buses often operate empty one way. R. A. U of L housing says if the college asks the university to rent accommodation to LCC some arrangement could likely be made. the university certainly won't be approaching the college. The university and college have discussed sharing the U of L residence during the past two years and at one point last year talked about 25 LCC students renting U of L but only one college student has made use of the opportunity. As a have to assume they're not interest- he said. Wendy LCC housing claims in the past the majority of LCC students preferred to find ac- commodation in the city rath- er than worry about commut- ing from the university. last year the LCC housing office placed about 600 students in various types of accommodation throughout the city. This year the stu- dents may not be so lucky and the inconvenience of rid- ing the bus between the U of L and the college might be more attractive. don't know but there doesn't seem to be nearly as much accommoda- tion available this Miss Rasmussen said Wed- nesday. So she has placed 150 students and has arranged for accommodation for anoth- er 50. Unless more city residents are willing to offer room and board to students or an agreement is made with the university the col- lege's enrolment may suffer. we can't accommodate they won't come said Miss Rasmussen. Mr. MacNeil suggests if the students can't obtain accom- modation in the city then the college have to look at the possibility of using the U of L several LCC students face the possibility of being homeless when they register at the college Tues- day.

Extensive research at the Lethbridge station has shown that fall cutting during the critical period can lead to serious yield reductions dur- ing the following two years. Dr. Hanna says a severe winter is more likely to re- sult in serious damage or win- ter kill in stands that have been cut during the critical period. If farmers have to cut dur- ing the critical period this Dr. Hanna suggests they delay the first harvest next year until the plants are well into bloom. This will give the chance for the plants to recover while early spring cutting following a fall harvest will only do more harm.
