West winds and a temperature of 47 degrees turned streets into a slushy, gushy mess. Wednesday night a half an inch of fresh snow and freezing temperatures put the motorists on the skids, literally, once again. And although southern Alberta's fickle weather seldom Chlorine content increased Lethbridge residents who have noticed a taste of chlorine in the city's drinking water during the recent Chinook weather may take some comfort from the fact they are better off tasting it than not. Irv Praser, city waterworks engineer, says the extra chlorine is a necessary precaution in times of heavy run - off to ensure that the water is safe to drink. There are ways of combatting the unpleasant taste, The city can add potassium permanganate and activated carbon to the water to absorb the taste. Activated carbon is now being added to reduce the chlorine taste. The addition of chlorine is handled automatically at the water treatment plant. In order to ensure that bacteria in organic matter in the water does not pose a health hazard, a residual chlorine level of about 1.1 parts per million is maintained. During heavy run - off the amount of organic material washed into the river increases and the amount of chlorine also goes up.

The synopsis calls for continuing Chinook conditions. Wednesday's snowfall was about 24 hours premature, but it cleared the way for a return to mild weather. The cold arctic high that was supposed to engulf southern Alberta later today had its plans foiled by the warm Pacific low still sitting over B.C. The in fluence of the low caused the high to shift eastward, with a net result that the low is again firmly entrenched on Alberta's eastern boundary. This turn of events indicates the mild weather will remain for at least two more days, with highs expected to peak today and Thursday somewhere near 40 degrees. Overnight lows will be near zero. Winds will be from, the west at 25 mph gusting to 35 mph. Tuesday's high and low temperatures were 47 above and 20 above respectively. Record temperatures for Jan. 20 are 59.4 above set in 1942 and 44.8 below set in 1954. Meanwhile, the on again off 'again Chinook continues to raise havoc throughout southern Alberta, flooding basements of houses in low lying areas' and prolonging the treacherous condition of streets and highways. Apart from being slightly cooler than normal, the final month of 1970 was pretty unspectacular. The warmest day of the month occurred Dec. 6, when the mercury climbed to 47.3 degrees, and the coldest day Dec. 21, when it was 23 below. The record high and' low temperatures for the month are 67 above set Dec. 8, 1908, and 45.3 below set Dec. 29, 1968. Precipitation for the month was also down, with only 6.9 inches of snow (.5 of an inch of precipitation) compared to the normal 7.5 inches of snow (.78 of an inch of precipitation). Hours of sunshine for the month totalled 106.4, slightly better than the normal 96 hours. One record was set for the month at the Lethbridge weather office, when the mean station pressure of 902.8 millibars upset the old record of 903.4 set in 1948.

Auditions for the Frank Norman-Lionel Bart musical will be open to the public. Persons involved with the eventual production will be invited to take out memberships in the group. The invitation to Playgoers to appear at the first National Festival, to run May 17-22, represents a singular honor for the Lethbridge theatre organization, the oldest amateur dramatic group in the city. One of about 1,000 professional and amateur organizations to apply for the National Festival, Playgoers will be the only Alberta representative at the six-day event. Previous national festivals, sponsored by the Dominion Drama Festival, have comprised plays chosen through regional competitive events. Playgoers won the Alberta Regional Drama Festival last year with its production of Brendan Behan's The Hostage, and went on to become the western-zone representative in the DDF finals in Winnipeg last May. The 1971 National Festival consists only of plays chosen, without regional competitions, by a national committee. The invitation to Playgoers, and director Dick Mells, is also notable, in that the Lethbridge play will be one of six presented in the main theatre of the National Arts Centre. Other productions will be given in the small studio theatre and the salon. Playgoers opened the six-dav 1970 DDF event; at the 1971 SWANEE1I - Life boats are not optional equipment on cars so Larry Bennett reverted to kayaking on Tuesday's soggy streets in the city. This shot taken on Mayor Magrath Drive was one of the calmest points in his travels. Little trouble was experienced but he said he had a constant worry about being stopped for not having proper signal lights, or perhaps paddling without a licence. So today it's ice-boating? Sheep test compares breeds An experiment which has been under way at the Lethbridge Research Station for the past six years, should be of great help to sheepmen when choosing breeding stock. Dr. John Vesely, sheep and dairy specialist at the station, has been comparing the rela- tive merits of the Romnelet, Columbia, North Country Cheviot and Suffolk breeds, plus the performance of crossbred offspring. He has found little difference among the Romnelet, Columbia and North Country Cheviot breeds in terms of weaning weight, final market weight, Area students being sought for Que. exchange project Lethbridge area students are invited t o participate in a summer exchange program with Quebec.

The Suffolk breed proved considerably better in all of these traits. Weaning weight was nine to twelve pounds better in the Suffolk, final market weight was 13 to 20 pounds better, and weight-per-day of age was .07 to .11 of a pound better than the other three breeds. Feedlot gain was three to 10 pounds more. "The most striking and signi ficant effect was found in the maternal ability of the Suffolk," said Dr. Vesely. "Dams of this breed raised lambs 10 pounds heavier at weaning time than dams of the three other breeds." Dr. Vesely found single crosses were on the average, four to five per cent better in the four traits and three-breed crosses were seven to 18 per cent more efficient than the pure breeds. National Festival, they will close the festival, probably on Saturday afternoon, May 22. Also, musical comedies were not accpted by the DDF. Fii.gs Ain't Wot They Used to Be is the only musical to be accepted in this National Festival. Other plays invited include children's theatre, puppet shows, mime theatre and one-act plays. It is not known at this time what professional or amateur groups; and their productions, will also appear in the main theatre. Fings Ain't Wot They Used to Be, described by a London critic as a "British Guys and Dolls," calls for a cast of 14-20 persons. The Playgoers production will mark the North American premiere of the London hit musical. Originally staged by Joan Littlewocd's Theatre Workshop, which also first presented The Hostage and A Taste of Honey, Fings concerns a has-been Increase in quotas announced Increases in general delivery quotas for wheat and barley have been announced by the Canada wheat board. The general wheat quota has been raised to four from three bushels per quota acre in the Medicine Hat, Brooks and Vulcan shipping blocks, while the quota for barley has been increased to 20 from 15 bushels per quota acre at Swift Current, Outlook and Medicine Hat. Grain officals in Lethbridge say farmers in general are pretty pleased with the wheat shipping. For the entire crop year 1969-70, farmers received only a four bushel quota. Esti mates this year put the final quota at eight or more bushels Farmers continue to hold much of their barley, still play ing the wheat board against local feeders in an effort to ob tain the best price for their product.

Murder charges withdrawn Two non-capital murder charges against Joan Agnes Bayon, 24, of Lethbridge, were withdrawn in Lethbridge magistrate's court before Judge L. VV. Hudson.

C. G. Virtue, Q.C., represented Miss Bayon when the application for withdrawal of the charges was made by D. V. Hartigan, agent of the attorney-general.
