Westview Investments Ltd., a partnership of 60 Lethbridge businessmen, would like to de- velop a 200-acre parcel of land largely for single family resi- dences, along the coulee just northwest of the new university property. Murray Jones, consultant for Westview Investments, recent ly appeared before the Munici pal Planning Commission with the subdivision proposal, bu the MPC suggested the matter should go to council. The proposed subsidivision is near a similar developmen planned by the city, and it i believed some members of citj council will oppose the private development.

The group feels the develop- will provide a needed ser- in the neighborhood anc will not cause traffic problems in the residential area. A submission on behalf of esideris of the area (immed- ately north of the College Shop- jing Mall) objects to the clinic MI the grounds it would detracl rom the esthetic quality of the neighborhood. The submission also points to jaffic problems as another rea son for council to refuse the re zoning application.

New buses largest in Canada Buses used on the new non- stop service linking Lethbridge with Calgary and Edmonton are the largest of their operating in Canada. kind GOODBYE PIGEONS? Maybe it will work and maybe it won't. But an attempt is being made to get rid of the pigeons on Lethbridge's post office clock tower. This two- man crew from Inter-Provincial Pest Control ltd. in Calgary, having cleaned up the tower, is spraying it with a chemical that is supposed to deter the clock's feathered friends from alighting there. This is the first time the operation has been tried here and, if it works, local citizens who frequent the post office corner can heave a sigh of relief. Officials of Greyhound Lines of Canada said the 43-pas- senger bus previously has op- erated only on the long dis- tant: Trans-Canada route. The non-stop service was .in- stituted recently because of cutbacks in rail service early this month. Greyhound now has five trips each way daily between Lethbridge and Ca! gary, which take Iwo hours and 40 minutes. The bus, complete with rest- room and air conditioning, pro- vides wider seats, wider aisles, larger windows, greater head- room and twice the baggage end express capacity of other buses, Greyhound officials say.
