BIG ONE LANDS AT LETHBRIDGE-This Lockheed Starlifter C-141 cargo plane from the U.S. Air Force is the largest plane ever to land at lethbridge's Kenyon Field.

The plane contained two large trucks at ths time of the landing, on its way to the Suffield Experimental Station. Funds To Come From Student Fees And Projects Churchill High School Gets Own Bus CAR BEHIND HEDGE SHOWS INTERSECTION DANGER Little Opposition Shown To Intersection Bylaw A limited sampling of re dents of corner lots in the ci would seem to indicate no re opposition to city council's i tended changes in the regul tions covering trees, shrubs an other obstructions at intersec tions. In a Herald news survey residents whose yards ha shrubbery that would o viously be in violation of th proposed 25 foot setback regula Son, none of the resident voiced opposition to the change provided the bylaw was um formly enforced.. Mrs. Joe Nagy of 1412 22 SI S. said, "If the city wants t do it, it done through out the whole city." She said that while she wasn' sure that it would really helf cut down accidents, she woul ENQUIRE ABOUT TIN FOIL RIBBON FLOWERS FOR YOUR FLOAT OR DISPLAY l ower Shop Marquii Hottl Ildj. Chant be willing to trim their hedge if everyone else did. Her daughter Velma didn't think it would make any real difference whether the obstruc- tions were eliminated or not. Her view was that no driver should go through any intersec- tion at an unsafe speed. "What are they going to do, go through here at 70 miles an she asked. Miss Mary Moore, of 1805 6th Ave. N., said she had no objec- tions to having her board fence cut down to the three foot limit, provided the city did the work. Miss Wendy MacDougall of 1720 7th Ave. N. and Mrs. Jean Ainscough of 1617 15th Ave. S. both felt the proposed regula- tions were a good idea. Under the proposed bylaw, which council intends to pass July 27, no hedges, shrubs or rees will be allowed to grow to a height of more than three eet above the elevation of the centre point of any intersec- ion. The rule would apply to any shrubs within 25 feet of the comer of the intersection. Trees would have to be trim- med so that no branches extend ower than 5 feet above the elevation of the centre point of the intersection. Lethbridge's old traffic by- law, which was repealed in 1967, had similar1 regulations except that the-setback from the comer was only 15 feet. The traffic bylaw that re- placed the old one did not carry forward the provisions relating to -setback of shrubs and hedges. _ The proposed 25 foot setback is the maximum allowed under the Municipal Government Act, Winston Churchill High Schoo students wffl get tteir "very own" school bus this fall, bu it wiU remain the property o tihe Leiifibridge pubifc srjhoo district rather than belonging outright to the school.
