The weatherman says the positive approach towards better weekend weather could pay off. The forecast calls for gen- erally more sunshine than the South country has had for some time, and if the turbu- lence over the mountain country settles down, it could end up as one of the best weekends of the spring and summer this year. There is to be more sun- shine, with the daytime high hitting the CO above or better mark. Overnight lows arc to be 50 to 60 above. Winds are expected to light, with gusts up to 20 miles per hour. There'll lie some isolated rain anil thun- dershowers around the moun- tain country. Southern Alberta weather is described as "anything but good" during the past two months. Strong westerly winds, or cool, damp weather has formed the Sputli's weath- er pattern, particularly dur- ing the weekends. The weatherman says the forecast for the next five days calls for generally fair weather, with daytime highs in the 80 above mark. ii" if ti f mm m> 1 1 w Light horse show in last day today Horse and rider combined tal cnls again during the third da of the lour-day Lethbridge am District Light Horse Shoi Thursday, to give an audience- appealing display.

STUBBS If you have wondered how and why cigarette smoking may cause emphysema, an explanation of what occurs may be of interest to you. Cigarette smoke fe is composed of INlerally billions T of minute, vm- burned particles as well as (he N gasses formed. t This mixture Jcondenses a n d creales a thick, yellow brownish liquid called tobacco lar. Between 110% and 90% ot inhaled cigarette smoke remains in l.ho body, and this lar coals the tubes through which air is breathed. Normal amount of mucus are expelled from the air tubes by the ac- tion of tiny hairs called 'cilia'. Heavy inhalation ot cigarette smoke slops this cilia action and eventually eradicates the cilia themselves.

Police car hits stolen car Recovering a stolen car isn't always easy, and Tuesday night a stolen car was recovered the hard way by a city police con- sloble. City police report the recov- ery of a car owned by Mrs. Lydia Alien of Taber resulted in a accident. A police constable while on traffic patrol noted a car being driven in an erratic manner and pursued it, but was unable j to stop it. After following the car foi several blocks the chase ended abruptly when the stolen car driver slammed on the brakes and the police car skidded into the rear of it. Following the collision a 17- Lethbridge girl was ar- rested and charged with theft of an auto.

In its mid-summer report. Ducks Unlimited says the southern portion of the provmce received some heavy rains late this spring, but much of the moisture fell in the foothills region "where there was no great urgency." Tlic report says there would appear to lie plenty of water in the parklands and foothills dis- tricts to see the young ducks through the season, but the cen- tral and eastern portions of the flat-prairie lands are in "real need" of more water. Another problem area is the valley bottom marshes where rivers and other streams are only IMW receeding from record, or near-record runoff levels. These areas were eliminalcd as waterfowl production spots by late May. In addition to the heavy runoffs, heavy spring rains also washed out the ma- jority of the prime breeding The 1372 hatches have now appeared as healthy broods throughout the south, but thcro will soon have to be a refilling of the potholes and other natur- al water impoundments soon if the ducklings are not going to be trapped on dry land. In addition to being hit by a lack of food supplies, the duck- lings become relatively easy prey for predatory birds and animals. It's suggested that in some districts of the southeastern corner of the provmce it is al- ready too late for the birds to make a comeback or survive. They have been hit by one of the worst droughts since the early 1350s and there is no hope for recovery for the local birds. lu some instances flocks of paired mallards and pintails have given up any attempt to nest this year, while (here are others that are still trying to make their first successful nest.
