Berafd had breathalyzer readings of .22 and .21. Magistrate Lloyd Hudson said he wouldn't prohibit Bsrard from driving anywhere in Can- ada but the motor vehicles branch would prohibit him from operating a car or. a highway. In this way Berard, a heavy equipment oper'ator, would be able to drive the equipment pro- vided it wasn't on a highway.

The land is needed by the city for the widening of 13th St The sale offer by the city was to be accepted or rejected, and MFC approval gained within 30 days. Several reasons were given for refusing the application. Among them was the fact that previous policy established by council does not allow access to the property from Mayor Ma- grath Drive. The commission also said it did not consider the site suitable for the use intend- ed. The commission's decision can be appealed b? the tire firm. Given approval was a recom- mendation of the land sales committee that about 20 acres of land west of Stafford Drive, just south of the sanitary land- fill, be allocated for sale and development as a mobile home site.

Urban Life Study Meeting Set The terms of reference of an urban life study called by Pre- mier Harry Strom will likely be clarified at the next meeting of the mayors of 10 Alberta cities, scheduled for the end at July. No specific information on the study has been released follow- ing two meetings already held in .Edmonton. It is known the three levels of government will co-operate financially on the project, which j is known officially as the Task Force on Urbanization and the Future. The philosophy guiding the task force seems to be consis- tent with the principles evolved by the provincial government in the field of human resources development in recent years. A task force document notes the traditional method in ur- ban planning is for the plan- ners to set goals., decide on the means of implementation and then "sell" the idea to the pub- lic. The task force design relies on what is termed "interest based planning." Under this procedure, once a problem has been identified or an issue rais- ed, the relevant interest groups, working with researchers and planners, develop what is felt to be the best response to the problem. Policy then evolves out of what is acceptable to the in- terest groups in the commu- nity, rather than coming from professional planners who may be removed from the actual sit- uation. Court Worker Stresses Need For Rehabilitation House An example of Lethbridge's need for a rehabilitation home for women with alcohol, drug or living problems was shown in magistrate's court this morning, with the recommend- ation that too women try to "straighten out their lives at half-way said Leth- bridge court worker Albert Lapotec. He recommended to magis- trate Loyd Hudson that Stella Stimpsn and Uniee Good Rider of the Peigan Milan Keserve be sent to the reserve Villa in Oalgary until the remaind date of Oct. 30 in an attempt iJor them to get control of their problems. Mr. Lapotec is employed by the John Howard Society and the Native Friendship Society of Southern Alberta. Magistrate Hufison told the women if they got help with their problems that they "wouldn't have to worry about BURGER SPECIAL Friday and Saturday Only 79 C LOADED HAMBURGER FRENCH FRIES MILK SHAKE Reg. 1.20..........................

'Mr. Lapotec said this is an indication of the need for a re- habilitation home in Lethbridge for all girls with the type of problems which are constantly popping up in the city. "At least one girl per week comes up in the city with some problems which a rehabilita- tion house could help. "Besides the excellent help provided these girls, a rehabili- tation house in Lethbridge would prove less costly to the government in the long run. "For an example, it costs the government about fof each woman transported from south 'Alberta courts to the jail in Fort Saskatchewan. This in- cludes payment of an escort." He said the women do not re- receive the best counselling in jail as compared to the coun- selling received by women in a half-way house. Two American women, Vickie Elaine Stauffer, 19, of Salt Lake City and Inez Bon- ner, 22, of Manchester, Ten- nesse, pleaded guilty this morning to a charge of illegally entering Canada. They were sentenced to one day in jail and will be detained pending an inquiry before being deported back to the United States. Louis Opwan of North Bat- tleford, Saskatchewan was given four months in Belmont Institute near Edmonton after he pleaded guilty to a charge of stealing a bottle of after- shave lotion. Belmont is a cen- tre for persons with alcoholism problems. VISIT HOLLAND NOBLEFOED (HNS) Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Vander-Leest are home after spending a month holiday in Holland.
