A NEW USE FOR WINTER SNOW - Following last week's heavy snow fall, city snow removal crews were out cleaning major Lethbridge streets. One snowplow operator, no doubt looking for a promotion into the traffic department, cut a left turn lane into the northbound Mayor Magrath and 6th Ave. S. intersection. At a point the standard three lamp posts back, he turned his plow left, up onto the concrete meaian strip. The deep snow turned into a new roadway - and as can be seen from the picture, the three-lane Mayor Magrath intersection had four well-used lanes of traffic- Or is it a new way the city experiments with traffic flow??

A spokesman for the department said the restaurant in the building was not damaged too heavily by the fire but water and smoke took their toll as firemen fought the blaze in 16-below-zero weather. The fire was contained mainly within the front area of the building. The fire in the Home and Pit-field building was estimated to have caused $580,000 damage. Most of the food stocks in the building were destroyed, and only the warehouse walls were left standing.^,; RANKS SIXTH The sixth most populous state in the United States is Ohio, with 10,564,000 residents. curtailed during the cold weather last month.

I Conservative nominations for Film festival set for city Feb. 6 A one - day Community Film Festival, organized by the educational media division of the University of Alberta's department of extension and a Lethbridge citizen's group, will be held in the Yates Memorial Centre Feb. 6. The festival, featuring films for adults and children, will employ five viewing areas in the Yates and run frtun 2 p.m. to midnight. The 130 available films, including about 30 from the National Film Board of Canada, will deal with science, art of film - making, humor and social issues. The festival will i n c 1 u d e a children's film workshop and a multi - screen and tape presentation, The Challenge of Change, produced by the U of A's department of extension. A scheduled series of films will be shown in the Yates audi- torium. At four smaller areas downstairs visitors will be able to select movies from a list of more than 100. The movies' running - times range from three to 72 minutes. The festival is being co-sponsored by the Southern Alberta Council on Public Affairs, an unincorporated citizens' group which about three years ago backed sessions on family life at Camp Inuspi. A spokesman for the Let h-bridge group said the council will, eventually be incorporated under the provincial Societies' Act and will sponsor more programs of community interest. the two. Lethbridge ridings are expected to be named in Feb ruary. The provincial party is gearing for an election in the late spring or early summer, al though the Social Credit government's five - year mandate does not run out until 1972. Danger: lake ice unsafe A 15 - year old Lethbridge youth fell through the ice Sunday morning on Henderson Lake, and city police have declared the entire lake unfit for skating or any other ice activities. The youth managed to thrash himself free after several minutes of struggling, and went immediately to a neighborhood doctor,- who treated him and sent him home none the worse for the accident. However, police were called, and their inspection of the ice surface showed several holes up to five yards long, and a number of visible weak spots. Commissionaires were sent to the lake to keep people off it Sunday, and with warmer weather expected for the next few days it is unlikely it will be safe for use again for several weeks. About 3,500 criminal cases were handled by the department in 1970, an increase of about 400 over 1969. Drugs continued to be a major problem with about 200 cases investigated. Of this total, only 45 cases were brought to court. Duringrfhe year, police seized drugs valued at $46,000. Drug abuse in the city, according to police, resulted in one death, 12 attempted suicides, and a further nine persons treated in hospital. Drug abuse means use of any drug contravening the Crirtmal Code of Canada. Despite police surveillance, drug pushers continue to operate, a number of them in the city's schools. According to city high school students, a wide variety of illicit drugs can be obtained through school contacts without much difficulty. Theft cases, especially those involving shoplifting, increased in some areas by as much as 30 per cent. Police force sources say carelessness provides much impetus to potential thieves, and suggest cases would decline if more vigilance was exercised. The only optimistic note in the force's 1970 scope of activi ties was found in the traffic department. Traffic deaths during 1970 totalled two corn-paired with four in 1969. Traffic injuries decreased by 18 per cent, but property damage increased slightly. ed in again.

Sunrise Tuesday will be 8:20 a.m.; sunset at 5:05 p.m. Meanwhile, the rest of Alberta enjoyed some respite from the cold blast but temperatures remained below freezing.
