An arena, perhaps as part of a convention centre, would help to consolidate the donwt o w n area and impetus to fur i.her expansion." he said. Tiie association considers the downtown locution as logical for an arena in view of the de- velopment of West Uthbridgc. In a recent letter lo city coun- t-ii, Mr. linker said tire city "could count on considerable tangible support for this devel- opment if it were linilt in the downtown At this Mage, the arena de- velopment committee is in the process of deciding between two consulting firms, one of which will do a study on the location of the facility.

It was recov- ered by pojice. Dy MARLENE COOKSIIAW Staff Writer Tiie banning of all censorship of communicative devices was advocated by the Taxis and Older Boys' Parliament Wednesday. "Censorship is an expression of society's lack of confidence in Calgarian Alan Kidd said. Many members were con- cerned with the consequences of such a drastic proposal. Minister of archives Neil Hughes of Calgary agreed that j the laws must be changed but posure to violence has been definitely not eliminated. He foresaw thc collapse of society if censorship was completely re- moved. House leader Bill Douglas of j Vauxhall expressed consterna- tion at the possibilities for poli- tical indoctrination of children without some censorship. Another delegate referred to the deadening effect on huma shown to cause. However, Mike Checkland of Edmonton expressed the views of the majority group when he said human independence of thought was the basis of Cana- dian Parliament. He felt that censorship had become meaningless and there- fore ineffectual in its supposed sensitivity which repeated ex- service to citizens. Mr. Checkland said that the banning of censorship would teach people to cope with the responsibility of choice, and en- courage tolerance for the opin- ions of others. The earlier motion promoting the legalization of marijuana j w a s defeated unanimously. Tuxis said however that the bill was so poorly constructed as to leave them no other choice. The general opinion was that, had the resolution been suit- able, the legalizaiion of mari- juana would have been advo- cated. During its last sittings, the parliament will discuss post- secondary learning institutions, tariffs and economic priorities. The public is welcome to at- tend these sittings afternoons and evenings in Room C740 of the U of L until Friday. St. Augustine choir Lethbrige job range from to fair' If you ask me...

Proof awaits any homeward bound motorist who dares to venture onto 13lh St. and 6th Ave. S. between 4 and 6 p.m. On any given night, in any type of weather, some boob can be seen holding up traffic through four red lights and being com- pletely oblivious to the mouthed curses pouring at him from every direction. I don't use that "he" as a reference to the sex of the offender, but rather in the sense of the uni- versal referral to all of "us" as human beings. He, IJhe wheel clutching idiot on our streets, cannot ever imagine what is being said about him at that infamous intersection. Even the most meek and mild of little old ladies have been seen slowly curdling in frosly ears with muffs moving in well-rounded four-lettered words. And one can never tell just who the next trans- gressor of the law will be. Only that tell tale mock- ing red blinker, winking "I want to turn left" rhythmi- cally at you from in front gives the criminal away.

(Repent ye who have cursed the woman driver.) It is still a mystery as to where the affliction came from, and some say it fell from the very signs suspended above the intersection proclaiming the law. Others secretly whisper that it is a curse brought in by subversive elements to cause traffic jams.
