The cafeteria seats 425 people, and two lunch shifts have been organized to handle the school's 1,250-student population. LCI teachers, as well as students from neighboring schools make use of the cafeteria at times, and in the morning and afternoon the cafeteria has become an informal meeting place and study area. Hot meals are provided every day, costing 55 to 85 cents including a beverage. The menu varies from fish and chips to roast beef for the full meal, and hamburger, chips, hot dogs and other short orders are also available. Many students take their lunches from home to eat at the cafeteria. Staff includes three women and up to 15 students. More discussion planned on new skating facilities A decision by Lethbridge city council not to share the capital costs of a proposed $600,000 ice arena on the Lethbridge Exhibition grounds, will be the main item of discussion at the regular meeting of the Lett bridge and District Exhibition Board Feb. 9.

AWARD - Steve Dubetz, Irrigation agronomist with the Lethbridge Research Station has received a travel award from the Commonwealth Foundation Professional Travel Exchange to visit West Pakistan.

In Pakistan he will spend two weeks visiting universities and reviewing irrigation developments. On his return in March, he will visit an experimental station in Roth-amsted, England. Delegation seeks financial assist With servicing of the city's west side hanging in the balance, a Lethbridge delegation is scheduled to meet with a committee of the provincial cabinet tomorrow at 2 p.m. to try to get some form of assistance in paying for the city's secondary sewage treatment plant. The situation is that the city is $1,086,000 short in its borrowing capacity for 1971, provided it goes ahead with all the capital works planned for this year. The city needs $1,355,000 to pay for secondary sewage facilities, and this is what the committee is going after. Alderman Rex Little, chairman of the joint city - industry group, says the primary objective will be a provincial grant for the full amount. If this can be obtained, or if the money can be borrowed through Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation, the city will have sufficient money to go ahead with the installation of .services (roads, water, sewer) to the west side.

He has prepared alternative plans and will call tenders for the full project as originally planned and also a project that would see services provided to only the eastern portion of Phase One development. The amount of services provided depends on the city's success in getting help in paying the needed $1,355,000 for secondary sewage treatment facilities. If no help is available, the city is faced with the prospect of making cuts somewhere, and west side servicing has been designated as the place to do it. Aid. Little said no early decision on the grant request is expected, but "with all due respect to the provincial government, I hope we can get them to let us know as soon as possible." Mayor Andy Anderson and Aldermen Joe Balla, Bex Little and Jim Anderson will represent city council at the meeting. Representative from in. dustry are J. F. Gough of Swift Canadian Co. Ltd. and Ralph Effler of Lilydale Poultry Sales. Qiizzard? Was it a Blinook or a chiz-zard? Or a boomerang? Today's cold temperatures, according to the weatherman, are caused by the same, identical air that caused low temperatures before Monday evening's Chinook. It was only seven degrees above zero part of Monday, but temperatures warmed through the day and by about 9 p.m. the wind had warmed things to a high of 45. Then the winds reached the Alberta-Saskatchewan border and rebelled. The warm wind created a new low pressure area, which whipped the cold air around in a circle and back over Lethbridge, where it is expected to stay for a couple of days. Some snow was expected afternoon and evening, with winds from the northeast at 10 to 15 miles per hour. Tonight's low could be five below zero, and today's high temperature will be 15 to 20 above. Warmer weather should return to the city by Friday. But then the winds reached the Alberta - Saskatchewan border and rebelled. The warm wind created a new low - pressure area, which whipped the cold air around in a circle and back over Lethbridge, where it is ex pected to stay overnight. Some snow was expected this afternoon and evening, with winds from the northwest at 10 to 15 miles per hour. However, Lethbridge is right on the fringe of the transition zone between warm and cold air, and it is expected that after an overnight low of 10 above, the Chinook will return in the morning, boosting temperatures to 35 to 45 above. ing rabies in the county. While no rabid animals have been reported in the county, the list of rabid animals in Alberta is growing. Under the county's dog bylaw, any dog found running at large may be impounded or destroyed. The municipal districts of Taker and Pincher Creek and the counties of Newell and Forty Mile report. no similar action is being pursued in their territories at this time. The move by county council was spurred by a recent incident in which a Coalhurst child was attacked by a dog. Immediate analysis of the dog in the rabies diagnotic laboratory in Lethbridge revealed the dog was not rabid. Jets here The confused state of the weather brought Lethbridge some unexpected visitors this morning, when a Boeing 737 jet was forced to land at Ken-yon Field airport and wait until word was received that the Calgary International Airport was safe for landing. The weather system over Calgary reduced the ceiling to about 100 feet, and at least 150 feet is required by law before planes may land.

PHONE 327-2122 Agricultural conference in Calgary A one-day conference on the agricultural industry, "the key to Alberta's future," will be held in the Palliser Hotel in Calgary Friday starting at 9 a.m. The conference, sponsored by the departments of industry and tourism and the department of agriculture, will feature international speakers. In a letter to Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce President M or ley Tanner, Ray Ratzlaff, minister of tourism, said, "We feel strongly that the key to future prosperity in rural Alberta lies in the development of industry in our rural communities. 'New industries will produce the agricultural products required for better farming and create new job opportunities." The conference will be open to all interested organizations and individuals. Dr. William Dorward of the diagnostic lab maintains there is still no cause for alarm in the current situation, although the list of Alberta animals found to be rabid continues to grow. To date, 24 positive cases have been determined, an increase of seven cases in two weeks. Rabies vaccination clinics throughout southern Alberta have received good co-operation from residents, with over 10,000 domestic pets vaccinated to date. The clinics are designed to form a buffer zone between susceptible wild animals and humans. In the meantime, some relief may be forthcoming from the dread disease. University of California scientists report "promising results," in providing safe temporary protection with a new anti-rabies serum taken from human blood. The serum acts as a supplement to the vaccine devised 85 years ago by Louis Pasteur, and up to now the only weapon against rabies. The new serum would only be effective for two or three months or until the Pasteur vaccine has time to take effect. The Pasteur vaccine, now given in a series of shots in a suspension of embryonic duck tissue, does not take effect for 10 to 14 days. Persons bitten by a rabid animal could contract the viral disease before the vaccine has a chance to work. Chinese New Year Today is New Year's Eve for Chinese throughout the world. According to the Chinese lunar calendar the "year of the dog" ends at midnight and the "year of the pig" takes over. The occasion will be marked in many Lethbridge homes by cooking something a little special. No organized, group celebrations are planned.
