Drive Ph. 328-7751 Meeting planned on river flows A meeting between represen- tatives of the Oldman River Regional Planning Commission and the Alberta Irrigation Pro- jects Association is scheduled for sometime next month. The topic will be minimum Resignation is accepted The resignation of assistant director George Davey was ac- cepted by the Oldman River Regional Planning Commission at its Thursday meeting. Erwin Adderley, executive director, told the commission Mr. Davey had accepted a posi- tion as a research planner in Ottawa. He said the resignation was not because of any dis- satisfaction on Mr. Davey's part but rather a desire to re- turn to Eastern Canada. Mr. Davey was appointed as- sistant director in August, 1969. Prior to that he had been an I associate planner. In recent months he had been involved in a project m the Crowsnest Pass, acting as liai- son between a local gov- ernment study group in the "Pass and the provincial gov- ernment. Joe Balla, commission mem- ber for Lethbridge, asked that Mr. Davey be informed of the commission's appreciation of the work he had done while on i staff. i flows in the Oldman River, tha subject of some differences ol opinion between the two orga- nizations in recent months. Erwin Adderley, commission executive director, told the members at Thursday's meet- ing discussions on the subject had been held at the annual meeting of the AIPA earlier this month and it had been dis- covered the two groups were actually not too far apart in their views. The commission has passed a resolution calling for increased flows in four Southern Alberta rivers, including the Oldman. The association has prepared a brief opposing the move, say- ing it could seriously deplete irrigation reservoirs in a dry' year. It WES announced last month flows in the Oldman River would be increased on an ex- perimental basis to about COO cubic feet per second in the winter and 400 in the summer. The present legal minimum is 120 cfs. Middle Earth is ivhere? is what? 1971 officers are elected The Oldman River Regiona Planning Commission electe its 1971 slate of officers Thurs day.

Some driver left the road on Dieppe Boulevard in the 500 block and proceeded to knock out five recently-planted trees, being careful to miss the light standards and power poles which might have offered some resistance to the vehicle.

PHONE 328-7756 for RESERVATIONS one sample out of 300 lifted from milk producers and dairy plants throughout the province between Dec. 1, 1969 and Oct. 30, 1970, contained a residue in excess of food and dnig toler- ances. Samples analyzed by the lab- oratory included milk, cream, butter, ice cream and cheese. The sample of milk in which residues were detected, was tracked back to two cows in one herd. Under the direction of the department of agriculture, the milk from these animals was withheld from the market until the problem was cleared up. Mr. Fabbi says samples ot products pass ing through the Lethbridge dairy plant are checked regularly both by plant technician and by local and provincial health officials. R. P. Dixon, Alberta's dairy commissioner, says that while environmental pollution and res- due contamination can arise 'rom the misuse of chemicals, hey can also result through no 'ault of the user. Mr. Dixon went on to say, the dahy and food laboratory has been monitoring Alberta farm produce on a random sample basis continuously since During this period analysis techniques have been develop- ed and equipment obtained which has made it possible to measure pesticide residues in foods in parts per million.

The park, which could be a national one, is being promoted by several district residents in- cluding Tom Batcman. of Fore- most, Lawrence Halmrast, Warner, and Alva Bair, of Milk River. Mr. Bair showed a number of slides to the AWA meeting Thursday night to illustrate the area under consideration. He said that a small area of 10 or so square miles would be in- sufficient: about 100 square miles would be needed. One AWA member termed the smaller area "a postage stamp in a sea of alien devel- which Mr. Bair said would not protect the park from destruction. The park would run in a long line along the Montana border. Mr. Bair said the area abounds with many examples of plant and animal life. There are more than 900 species of plants; many large animals in- cluding antelcpe, deer, cougar, raccoon, porcupines, lynx, rab- bits, gophers and others. Grouse and other game birds are also common, and use the area as their mating ground. The Milk River winds through the proposed park area, and there are many In- dian artifacts on the river banks. The Milk River bad- lands would probably fall with- in the park's borders. Under the proposal, ranchers could still graze cattle on the land much of which is now crown land, leased specifically for grazing. Declaration park, however, would protect the wildlife from other devel- opments. The wilderness association will organize several tours of the area in the spring for ev- eryone interested, and in the These include Ycho, Jasper, Banff and Walerlon Lakes na- tional parks.

Snow days stay If cold and snow instills the feeling for Christmas holidays then southern Albertans should be in the mood. The cold arctic front which settled over the province two days ago has shown no sign of 1 U moving on, and the cold will stay during the weekend. Since the arrival of the sys- tem, Lethbridge has received four inches of snow. Daytime temperatures today Highways are reported in good driving condition, with bare driving lanes.

There will be periods of light snow and winds will be light.

The firm's operators pleaded guilty to the charge. The court was told a load of Iambs was being carried in the back of a truck from Leth- bridge to Edmonton Dec. 4 in 14 below zero weather with no straw or bedding. There was inches of ice and manure on the floor. The heat from the lambs melted some of the ice anc when the lambs were taken out the wool and skin tore loose from some of the animals, be- cause the water had frozen again. There were 164 lambs in the load. Two were dead and sev sick. One lamb died later. Despite what some taxpay- ers may think, the spirit of Christmas does prevail at city hall. The city is allowing the Sal- vation Army to jingle bells to solicit funds for the needy, contrary to a city bylaw. The bylaw states: "No per- son shall engage in chari- varies or aid or assist others so engaged, or blow horns, ring bells on any public sidewalk or street within the said city." The practice has been car- ried out by the Salvation Army throughout the country for many years. A part of Christmas and the true meaning of Christmas would likely be lost without the familiar Salvation Army col- lection pots and the bells. With the current cold weath- er, Lethbridge residents are placing greater demands on the cily's power distribution system. A peak load of kilo- watts was hit Wednesday night; last night the system came close to that figure with 36.600 kilowatts. Of the kilowatts Wednesday, SO. 500 was gener- ated by the city's power plant, the rest came from Calgary Power Ltd. Wednesday's figure was about 10 per cent higher than the previous high, established in January last winter. CUFF BLACK, Certified Dental Mechanic BLACK DENTAL LAB tower Level MEDICAL DENTAL BLDG.
