Irv Eraser said the city's underground water storage reservoir was the lowest it had ever been Monday. The reservoir normally holds 17 feet of water (about four million gallons) but Monday the supply got down to four feet (about a million gal- Such a low quantity can create problems in the pump- ing and delivery, be indi- cated. One of the city's main water pumps in the river valley treatment plant burn- ed out a bearing Sunday and was out of commission while repairs were being made. The city bad appealed through the news media to businesses and households to conserve water until Wednes- day when the pump would be back in service. Many people either don't listen or don't read, Mr. Fraser indicated. Sprinklers were every bit as active Monday as they are during any warm day. Mr. Fraser said even a former high- ranking city employee was watering bis lawn during the crisis. The pump has been repair- ed, be said, but the city has not been able to completely refill the storage reservoir.

Entries for the quarter horse, snow came from Alber- ta, Saskatchewan, British Col- umbia, Montana and Ari- zona. Judge for the light horse show is Roger R. Ruet-' nifc, Vennillion, Ohio, who has judged at shows in the U.S. and across Canada. The quarter horse is judged on conformation and perform- and, Mr. Sparks explained. Appearance and polish are important, he said, but come second after performance. Mr. Sparks described the quarter horse as "an all- round athlete and a family horse." "The quarter horse can run the quarter mile, cut some cattle a few minutes later, do some roping then, go home and let the kids ride he said. The quarter horse and the thoroughbred have the same beginnings, Mr. Sparks said. Registration of the colonial quarter running horse goes back to the 1600's in the U.S. The thoroughbred was bred for long-distance running, he explained, and the quarter horse was bred for cow sense. "If a thoroughbred can't run, he's shipped off to the Mr. Sparks said. "He's not much use for any- thing else." A quarter horse, he said, is bred for working ability, a gentle disposition and a cap- acity for training. The light horse show con- tinues through Thursday with judging of Arabians, palo- minos, pintos and appaloosas. The snow is being held at the outside show ring and is open to the public at no charge.

Manning, Chief Bull Shields; Davie Fulton, Chief Many Laws; Lester B. Pearson, Chief Great Chief; John 6. Diefenbaker, Chief Many Spotted Horses; and Roland Michener, Chief Run- ning Antelope.
