The chemicals kill trees and brush by destroying leaves and small branches. Defoliant herbicides have been used on forested areas of of the interior for the U.S., has he international boundary for recently the subcom- m o r e than two decades, leav- mlttee on pesticides opposing mg a barren slash 20 feet wide the use of chemicals within na- tional parks. In his letter Mr. Russell said, 'In subsequent considerations Birth control handbook held up Distribution of a birth con- trol handbook on the Univer- sity of Lethbridge campus has been held up by a General Fa- culties Council decision not to support the handbook. The booklet was recommend- ed by the Council on Student Affairs which includes student and faculty representatives. COSA had had the booklet checked out by a panel of local doctors, who said it was one of the best medical explanations of birth control systems avail- able and one of the least exoensive. However, the GFC turned down COSA's recommendation primarily due to political ma- terial also contained in the book, generally involving lefl wing and women's liberation material. It was termed "Maoist, and "damnec the two countries'. The work on the strip comes under the International Boun- ary Commission. Tom Ross, Waterton park su- erintendent, said his depart- ment is definitely against the use of chemicals in national arks for any reason. "All chemicals appear ave side effects, and the long- ange influence these chemi- als may have is difficult to he said. Mr. Ross added the matter ha een brought to the attention of propaganda" by some U faculty members, and a few said they would rather teach their children birth control at home. The university student affairs office has copies of the booklet, which may now be sold or given to the Students' Society Council for distribution since the SSC is not bound by the GFC ruling.

The of having a 20-foot international boundary came about during the 19th century an arbitration between he two countrier decided it vould be easier to survey the 9th parallel by the faster but ess precise astronomical, rath- er than geometric, meth- ods. Because of this, the bound- ary contains a number of errors. Partly because it is the marked boundary that counts egally and partly because cus oms and police patrols neede< a visible reference, the last o he series of boundary treaties, declared that a IC-foot strip on either side of the line should be maintained by the border com mission. The 20-foot strip is for the most part easy to maintain, ex cept for about miles o he border that is forested. A. F. Lambert, head of Can ada's International Boundary Tommission, the pas he strip was cleared by hand using axes, saws and some equipment. "But now we use defoliants _ ot, just as the hydro uttlitie n B.C. and everywhere. "The old method would mean hat in a really good season' ttork about 30 miles would be cleared. Defoliants provide 'aster method. Mr. Lambert said it onl takes alder and some other fas growing t r e e s or brush abou iwo or three years to cover u [he boundary line.

Defensive Driving courses in Lethbridge are to be sponsored in future by the Lethbridge and District Safety Council. This de- cision was reached Thursday by the council at its annual meeting at the request of in- structor Bill Falconer. The courses are available to any of the driving public with materials from the Alberta Safety Council. It was pointed out to the council that some insurance companies will not renew insurance policies to holders with several driving of- fenses, such as careless driv- ing without benefit of a defen- sive driving course- Mr. Falconer and Ralph Spic- er of the Alberta Motor Associa- tion will be instructors for the next class which is expected to be held in March. The Council tabled a moticn to make formal anplication for re-entry to the Alberta Safety Council. At present, the Leth- bridge and District Safety Council is an autonomous body under the Societies Act. Amalgamation with the pro- vincial body would bring the local group under the onus of the charter and bylaws of the larger organization.

Fees are to range from to a month, with the parents selecting the fee they feel they can manage. In specific need- ful cases there would be no :ee. The adoption of the fee schedule came about as the result of a suggestion from the preventive social services ad- visory committee. The com- mittee in January had ap- proved the Head Start 1971 budget only to the end of Au- gust, with the recommenda- tion that the program be eval- uated before that tune and that a fee schedule be consid- ered. Head Start at the time was the only project under preven- tive social services with no revenue. Its budget for the year is of which the city pays 20 per cent. Members of the advisory committee were present to dis- cuss the question of fees and other aspects of the Head Start program, which this year is providing educational opportunities to 41 Lethbridge Emergency areas Forty five "emergency gov- ernment areas" were establish- ed by the Alberta Emergency Measures Organization in 1970.

Although no definite date was set, it was indicated that a re-evaluation of the budget may be made by the advisory committee within the next month. This would allow the Head Start committee tune to plan ahead for next year, pro- vided the budget is approved by city council.
