Herb Ellerman and Marvin Jansens both received awards for the second highest scores on the written exam. Norm Bullied, the new club president, was the master of ceremonies. The city's sewerage service, change bylaw, a new fire by- law and a northside golf course for young people are all on the agenda for tonight's meeting of city council. The sewage bylaw was very nearly given all three readings at the last meeting. However it was decided to hold off on third reading until Lethbridge citizens had been given a chance to study it and express their opinions. While the council agenda ontains no letters from pri- ate citizens, eight local indus- ries have written asking that nal reading be postponed. 'he extra1 tune would allow Non-toxic insect control studied here A substance secreted by the secondary sex organs of male flies is being examined as a possible means of "cooling off" female flies and causing them to reject the advances of would-be mates. Dr. G. E. Swailes of the Lethbridge Research Station, who is heading up the study with cabbage maggot flies, is hopeful the work he and other entomologists are doing will ultimately provide a non-toxic method of destroying harmful and persistent insect pests. Dr. Swailes said he first had the idea for the maggot fly study after reading about re- search being caried out in the U.S. The study showed that the hormone-like substance pro- duced by the male accessory gland played as important a role in female reproduction as did the sperm of the male. The substance not only stimulated oviposition but also caused the female to reject the male fly if it attempted more than one mating; Dr. Swailes then began the experiment with the cabbage maggot fly, in an effort to find what triggered oviposition and why females prefer to mate only once. Lethbridge Community College offers WELDING INSTRUCTION in a Beginners' Program or an Advanced Program from Feb. 22-Mar. 12, 1971 inch No formal entrance requirements 30 hours of instruction per week for the 3-week course For further information contact: MR. F. B. McPHERSON Director School of Technical-Vocational Education Phone 327-2141 Local 219 Working under microscopes the entire reproductive system from a number of male flies were removed and inserted in a small slit cut in the thorax o female flies. In another expert ment only the male accessory gland was extracted, macfir ated and injected in measure! amounts into females. Tne first technique resultei in a fairly high mortality rate of the females. However, Dr Swailes did determine that thi accessory gland and not thi testes was responsible for ini tiation of oviposition. The second method appear ed to cause little damage t the females, and again ovi position was normal. Dr. Swailes observed tha 100 per cent of the untreate females mated, whereas 80 pe cent of those injected with th male accessory gland did no mate. Dr. Swaile said the femal injected with the accessory gland acts in the same man ner as an untreated femal that has mated normally. Sh becomes agitated and rejects the male by curving her ab domen under her body so ma ing is impossible. Dr. Swailes suggests that the male accessory gland ma terial can be identified an produced commercially, a non toxic and effective means insect control is possible.

COLLEGE MALL Ph. 328-2437 328-8211 HAROLD ZABRACK Pianist performs Wednesday Pianist composer Harold Zabrack of St. Louis will give the first Alberta pcformances of two of his own works Wednesday at the Yates Mem- orial Centre in a concert of the University of Lethbridge con- t series. lr. Zabrack, a Fulbrigbt Fellow in 1955-56 and holder of a masters of music degree from Chicago Musical College, was piano adjudicator at the 1970 Lethbridge and District Kiwanis Music Festival. He will also adjudicate at this year's event in late April. A teacher and vocal coach, he has won numerous awards and competitions and holds an honorary membership in the U.S. National Society of Arts and Letters. His compositions have fa- eluded the First Piano Con- certo, commissioned in 1964 by the St. Louis Symphony So- ciety. Mr. Zabrack has appeared in recital and as soloist with or- chestras throughout the U.S. and internationally. His concert in Lethbridge will include his two works, Sonata No. 1 written in 1965, ar.d Five Contours. The latter piece will be performed twice in Wednes- day's concert. The recital will also feature works by Liszt, Brahms, De- bussy and Palmgren. Tickets for the con- cert may be purchased at Leis- ter's Music Store, the uni- versity general office, or at the Yates immediately preceding the performance. The concert starts at p.m. he industries to make a pre- entation to the city's engi- werirsg director, suggesting amendments to various sec- ions. No indication is given in the etter of which sections of the bylaw .might be affected by the (roposed amendments. The. in- dustries have suggested in the sast that the charges, if set at no high a level, would curtail expansion or even farce reloca- tion. The bylaw sets the domestic charge at a month and the industrial rate at 13 cents per 100 cubic feet of water con- sumed, plus a surcharge for quantify and quality of wastes. The industries were repre- sented on a delegation that met with a cabinet committee re- cently requesting some form of financial aid in paying for the secondary sewage treatment facilities. No decision on the request was made at the time, and council also has on its agenda a motion to consider borrow- ing from the bank on an instalment basis for tem- porary financing of secondary sewage construction. The location of a proposed golf course for young people, tentatively set for part of Sec- tion Nine, just north of the city limits in north-east Lethbridge may not be decided for some time. Referred to the land sales committee in January after discussion of the possible use of the land for industrial de- velopment, the question is on council's agenda tonight. The land sales committee recommendation on the matter is that the federal departmen of agriculture, which owns 9 acres of land in Section Nine is negotiating with the city fo a lani exchange. One of the properties under consideration is the proposec golf course land. The agricu tare department, the recom mendation states, will not b able to "assess the usefulness of the north half of Section Nine until spring. Letters for and against the banning cf burning barrels ar again included with the agen da. These have been coming ir ever since the new fire by to delete the section banning all open fires (including bum- ing barrels) and first consider all other sections. City Manager Tom Nutting has recommended that current regulations on burning barrels be incorporated into the fire bylaw, replacing the complete ban. The fire code, as it is be- ing presented tonight, still re- tains the section dealing with fireworks and firecrackers, which would be strictly, con- trolled'. law was first under prelimin ary discussion several week, ago. This week's count is two fa banning and three agajjis There are also suggestions th week that any ban includ back-yard barbecues.
