CITY GOVERNMENT IjClhbridge is governed by a mayor and eight aldermen, with a city manager re- sponsible for administration and carrying out the policy of the council. Control of dogs one council topic By RICHARD BURKE Herald Staff Writer City council has gone to the dogs control of them, thai, is The agenda for tonight's council meeting includes a by- law which would put the re- sponsibility for canine control squarely on the shoulders of dog owners. The bylaw would hold a dog owner, whose dog becomes a public nuisance, guilty of an of- fence punishable by a ine up to 5100 or, "in default ol pay- ment to imprisonment with or without hard labor in the near- est common goal to 30 days. Public nuisance is the bylaw chases or as a bites for up defined In dog which pedestrians, horses, cars, bicycles and other vehicles, upsets garbage cans, barks or howls. A flat licence fee for reg- istering all dogs would replace the existing schedule of for unspayed females and S3 for spayed females and male dogs. To date this year, 50 unspay- ed females and spayed fe- males and males have been registered at city hall. Two other bylaws on the agenda would authorize the city to borrow an additional 000 for construction of public buildings.

"The further cuts we will need lo make for '73-74 will make things even more diffi- cult.'' He said the university now has enough information on which to base a decision on its 1973 74 operation, although nolhing is certain until tho provincial government brings down its budget early next I The remaining 5195.000. on a j separate bylaw, will be added to the approved for the construction of the new library on the old Central School prop- erty. The engineering director has asked for approval of a expenditure for construction of a right-turn lane at 6th Ave. and 13th St. S. Recent alterations to the street markings there have caused traffic tie-ups during peak hours. There was no pro- vision made for right-turn movements from 6th Ave. lo 13lh St. and an engineering de- partment survey shows 42 per cent of the traffic at the inter- section turns right. The new r i g li t-turn lane would be created by cutting back 12 feet from the boulevard on the southwest corner of Gth Ave. Other agenda Items include: a recommendation that the occupancy fee for single and two-family houses be elimin- ated; council approval of an agreement between the city and the operating engineers; a proposed land-lease ar- rangement between the city and the Lelhbridge Country Club; a recommendation that the city buy two new school buses for a proposed study of the air service facilities in the city. The meeting will be held In council chambers at 8 .m. and is open lo the public. Rehab workshop The Lelhbridge Rehabilita- tion Society is planning to ex- pand its services for the handi- capped, president Tom Chap- man said Wednesday night. The Society plans lo expand the capacity of clients (handi- capped people) in ils workshop from 20 to 40 in Ihe next" six months, and to 70 afterwards, Mr. Chapman and immediate pas t-president Rowland Snow- den said in an interview. This will be made possible by a provincial government prom- ise to increase its grant to shel- tered workshops from SI to per client day, Mr. Chapman said. "Tlia provincial grants to year. "I have recommended lo our board that we proceed on course with a similar level of services to be available in 1973-74 as we have in 1972-73. "There will be some addition- al economies affected for 73- '74 but no tenured or probation- al professors will be laid off: and no programs eliminated. "The board has accepted my recommendation." Dr. Beckel said the only thing that can bail the univer- sity out of its present financial situation is an increase in en- rolment. He said, however, that extra money may be available to the U of L, "not for more of what the Universities of Calgary and Alberta ore already doing but for valuable but different ap- proaches to liberal university education." The university must examine ils role within the provincial system with a view to playing a useful and expanded role, he suid. "One area of expansion that I believe is valuable and that we are already examining is the development of a work- study program in every area of our offerings where it is at all possible." "If all goes well, we won't see the immediate financial wounding that we came so close to in Ihis past month."

In recent years the school, lo- caled at Lethbridge Municipal Hospital, has sufered a first- year student drop-out rale of 50 per cent or more. This resulted from "poor quality of instruction and an administration more concerned with per capita student grants than producing nurses." they said.
