The dogs, including strays who preferred the Palmer refuge to the city pound, take regular group constitutionals on the outskirts of the city. Although they might technically be called a dog-pack, the category doesn't fit: even fd strangers the dogs are all affection and wagging tails. MPC asks tighter quality control The Municipal Planning Commission Wednesday recommended changes in the city's zoning bylaw designed to provide tighter controls over the quality of building. The changes, if approved by city council, upgrade standards for certain types of apartment blocks, require adequate storage space in residential buildings and give the commission more control over the aesthetic quality of construction projects. Esthetics, a subject of some concern to the commission in recent months, will come under stricter control largely through consider the esthetic aspect of changes in an existing clause the exterior only.

D. Stewart told the IXC board of governors Wednesday he has been invited by Education Minister Robert Clark to submit suggestions concerning legislation that would allow college students to transfer course credits to Alberta universities. He said he favored some form of legislation which would permit colleges to set the standards for transfer themselves, since universities seem to be incapable of agreeing on a transfer formula. 'If we found after a time that our students were failing when they reached university, we could change the transfer standards to accommodate the problems," he saidd At present college students are almost never granted cred it by Alberta universities for courses they take at colleges, although most American universities will accept their courses across the board. The only recent exception has been acceptance on a experimental basis of a few college business administration students into the University of Alberta's business administration program. In all other cases, LCC students wishing to further their educations have been forced to attend the more liberal American institutions. Dr. Stewart said he has been involved in discussions with both provincial and local university officials for the past four years concerning some form of university accreditation of college courses. "We're no closer now to a solution than we were when we for one or two years," Dr. Stewart said. "He gets the opportunity to look around at all the different things he can study, and is allowed to make up his mind without the pressures a university forces on hhn. And the more intimate atmosphere at a college offers him a better type of teaching while he's looking." He said he would prefer that his own children spend some time at1 a college, even if they wanted to go to university later. Board member Don Livingstone said he thought the role of a community college was threefold: to offer vocational education, to offer terminal programs and to offer the first and second year of university, even in a community with � university (although without duplication of courses). Experiment at U of A Several Lethbridge Community College business education students have been attending the University of Alberta in an experimental program which allows them to enter the U of A faculty of commerce's business administration program. The three students this year were given credit for VA U of A years, for their two full years at LCC. They were honors students at the college, and continue to be honor students in Edmonton. Darryl Maisey, director of the LCC school of business education, told the LCC board of governors Wednesday that the experiment was particularly interesting because the three students had been admitted to the college as mature students, Apartments given okay Two 24 - suite apartments in the Scenic Heights subdivision were approved by the Municipal Planning Commission Wednesday. Approved in October, the apartment applications were returned with modifications in parking arrangements and the exterior finish. The California stucco finish, to accentuate the Spanish design, was approved. The parking arrangements contravene the zoning bylaw and must be modified before a building permit is issued. The commission also approved a new parking layout for the El Rancho Motor Hotel, provided changes are made in the plans. The added parking is designed to ease on - street parking congestion in the area. The City of Lethbridge earned an estimated $347,700 through investments in 1970. Finance Director Allister Findlay said although final figures were not in, the estimate should be very close and would compare favorably with the 1969 total of $233,900.

All transactions must comply with the provincial Trustee Act. Each year the city borrows money for various projects. If the money is not needed immediately, Mr. Findlay invests it until it is needed. For example, in October, 1969 the city borrowed $755,000 to help pay for secondary sewage treatment facilities. Knowing the money would not be needed for some time, he invested it at an interest rate of more than nine per cent. The $755,000 was borrowed by the city at eight per cent. The highest interest rate earned on any investment in 1970 was 9.62 per cent, Mr. Findlay said. mission can look at all aspects of the design. ......

The moist low-pressure system which moved into southern Alberta Tuesday, has dropped 4.1 inches of snow and 05 of an inch of rain on Lethbridge in the past 48 hours, yielding a total water equivalent of about two-fifths of an inch. The system is moving slowly eastward, but for the next two days at least, the chance of snow or freezing rain is high. Daytime temperatures today and Friday should be near 35 above, dropping only slightly to about 30 above overnight. Winds will be westerly at 15 nup.h. gusting occasionally to 30 m.p.h. Wednesday's high and low temperatures were 31 above and 27 above respectively. Near - freezing temperatures have made driving on highways and streets treacherous. The weatherman said wet snow and rain was freezing on roads throughout Alberta des pite air temperatures that actually register above freezing because ground temperatures remain below the freezing point. Lethbridge city police report a rash of 29 motor vehicle ac cidents in the past 48 hours many of which could be at tributed to icy streets, and Lethbridge RCMP warn motorists that highways are in very dangerous driving condiion. Fined $150 Oscar Traichel and Gerald William Laqua, both of L e t h bridge, were each fined $150 and were prohibited from driving anywhere in Canada for six months when they pleaded guilty in magistrate's court Wednesday to impaired driving. Two Albertans on joint committee and lack their complete high school standing. The students will receive their U of A degrees after completing 2% years of unit versity. An additional three or four LCC students will be admitted to the U of A on the same basis this fall. Mr. Maisey told the board in his regular report that the school's September enrolment was up 26.7 per cent over the September, 1969 figure, and up a further 25 per cent for the current spring semester. The January enrolment, while not yet exactly known, will be close to 300 students. The whole college anticipates a substantial over - all enrolment increase, but figures won't be finalized for a few days. Last September, 111 students were registered in the school's secretarial science program, 85 in first year business administration. A further 45 students were taking partial business programs. Mr. Maisey said plans are finalized for introduction this September of the college's new hotel - motel manage ment major, which involves work both at the college, in classes, and in the community, on the job. The course is the optional second year major in the business administration program. The school is currently seeking two faculty members for the program, but having some difficulty in finding a suitable person. Wide experience in the hotel industry and related fields, plus the ability to teach are prime requirements for the position. Mr. Maisey said he is more concerned with these factors than with the particular educational qualifications such as education degrees that the instructor will have. The program's introduction has also lead to a program change for the school's business administration sec o n d year selection. To date, students have selected a major from among four programs: finance, marketing, office administration and automatic data processing. Since both students and fa-1 culty are spread rather thinly with the four options, Mr. Maisey said Uiere was some concern that not enough students would be registering in some of the options. The result has been combination of the finance and office administration programs into a new business management major. The school will for the first time also allow students in their second year of business administration to select a variety of courses from all four optional areas, instead of specializing, granting them a general business diploma when they finish. Mr. Maisey told the board that a problem encountered with the two - entry point system now in effect at the college (allowing students to register in September or January) has lead to a decrease in registrations in some courses. This is because they now split them- selves between the two entry points. The college has a regulation requiring that 10 or more students be registered in a program before it is taught. If sufficient students register to start, but some drop out along the way, or at the end of the semester, there is sometimes not a large enough number of students returning for the second unit of the course to make it operable within regulations. However, the college is obligated to offer it, even to only three or four students. Increase in fees this fall Lethbridge Community College general tuition fees will be increased this September to $50 per semester, the LCC board of governors announced at its regular meeting Wednesday. Current tuition is $40 per semester. Exceptions will be made for the college's school of technical - vocational education and school of agriculture, whose fees will remain at $30 per semester. Trustees felt the two exceptions should be made to keep their fees in line with similar programs offered by Alberta's technical institutes and agricultural colleges. Fees for the other LCC schools - liberal education, nursing education and business education - who have the majority of students, will be increased gradually during the next few years until they reach the same level, or near to it, as other general community colleges charge. In 1972-1973, LCC general tuition will be increased to $60 per semester, and perhaps in the following year, to $75 per semester. The fee increases were agreed to by the Alberta colleges commission last year. By JOAN BOWMAN ManitoDa will nave the largest western - province representation on the special joint committee on the constitution of Canada when the 30-member group visits Lethbridge next Wednesday. Alberta will be represented by Lethbridge MP Deane Gund-lock, a Progressive Conservative, and Senator Donald Cameron of Banff, a Liberal. This compares with six House of Commons and Senate members from Manitoba, one MP from British Columbia and none from Saskatchewan. Not all 30 members are expected to take part in the week-long agenda of public hearings in British Columbia and Alberta. The committee, studying reform of the Canadian constitution, will hold its Lethbridge public meeting next Wednesday j at 7:30 p.m. in the lecture theatre of the Lethbridge Community College's Kate Andrews Building. The current round of meetings will start in Vancouver Thursday, continue through Victoria, Prince George, Kam-loops, Lethbridge and conclude Thursday, Jan. 14, in Calgary. Dennis O'Connell, Lethbridge director of economic development, who is assisting with arrangements for the committee, said about five or six briefs are expected to be examined by the committee in the city. One of the briefs may come from students of Winston Churchill High School. The committee, with a complement of about 10 technicians, will arrive in Lethbridge about 1:30 p.m., visit the home of Mr. Gundlock, tour the city, then go to accommodations at the Park Plaza Motor Hotel. The city will hold a reception at Sven Ericksen's Family Restaurant at 4:30 p.m., to be followed by the public hearings. Members of the committee are added and omitted as it moves around the country. As it stands now, the group comprises 18 Liberals, nine Conservatives, two NDP and one Ralliement de Creditistes members. Joint chairmen are Senator Maurice Lamontagne, a Quebec Liberal, and Dr. Mark MacGuigan, an Ontario Liberal MP. Representing the Senate are: Senators Cameron of Alberta, James Haig and Paul Yuzyk, Conservatives, and G. L. Mol-gat, a Liberal, all from Manitoba; from Quebec, Louis de Giguere and Leopold Langlois, Liberals, and Josie Quart, Con- servative; Eugene Forsey, a Liberal from Ontario; and Muriel Fergusson, a Liberal from New Brunswick. Western MPs are: Mr. Gundlock; from Manitoba, Walter Dinsdale (PC), E. B. Osier (Lib.) and Douglas Rowland (NDP); from B.C. Douglas Hogarth (Lib.). Ontario MPs are: Colin Gibson, Eugene Whelan and James McNulty, all Liberals; Lincoln Alexander and Perry Ryan, Conservatives; Andrew Brewin, NDP. Quebec representatives are: Warren Allmand, Georges Le-Chance, Gilles Marceau and Marcel Prud'Homme, Liberals; Martial Asselin, Conservative; and Gerard LaPrise, Ral. Cred. The sole Maritime members are: Herb Breau (Lib.) and R. G. L. Fairweather (PC), both from New Brunswick. Weekend Special!
