A letter confirming the loan, VOYAGEURS IN LETHBRIDGE Twenty-one Quebec high school students are the guests of Lethbridge for a week, part of the Young Voyageurs' annual exchange program organized here by the East Lethbridge Rotary Club. Wednesday the students toured a number of city sights, including the Sir Alexander Gait Museum, whers they are pictured. Their escorts, at left front and back, are Mr. and Mrs. John Greer, of Sherbrooke, Que., where Mr. Greer coincidentally teaches at the Alexander Gait School.

After' the four week period, the hotel weeks before the licence could be approved. It is believed several other city hotels are in the process of applying for a similar license. Verbal assurances were given at that time that some- thing would be worked out, but the province was faced with the problem of how to distribute million in federal CMHN loan million out of a requested million. An additional allocation may be made to the province, in which case the city might qual- ify for another CMHC loan. The forgiveness clause on such loans makes them the most attractive method for the city to finance sewage costs. Money not available through this source will be financed through the Alberta Municipal Financing Corporation. The city has received permission to borrow above the usual AMFC limit in order to pay for the sewage treatment facilities.

Zoratti. If it is not used it may be sold and the funds put toward some of Southern Alberta and the producers of a million movie is to be clarified at the next meeting of city council. Alderman Steve Kotch, city representative on the TCASA board of directors, presented a notice of motion Wednesday that City Mnager Tom Nutting produce written evidence of his charge that the movie produc- ers were unable to obtain as- sistance from TCASA.

Horses of high calibre are not forbidden to enter claiming races, but trainers are serious- ly discouraged from entering a horse against lesser competition by the provision that a horse which runs in a claiming race can be purchased or "claimed" by another person. Trainers are unders'.anda b 1 y reluctant to run a good horse in cheaper claiming company, for fear of losing the horse at bargain price through the claim. To claim a horse, a claimcr must have raced a horse in the same races of that meeting, must prove he is financially able to own a horse, and must deposit sufficient funds with the bookkeeper. If the claimer meets all the requirements, the owner must sell the horse at the end of the race, regardless of whether or not his horse won the race. How- ever, if the horse wins any money in this race, it goes to the former owner, not the new owner. The new owner is responsible for the horse claimed when it enters the main track. Should an injury occur to the claimed horse, the responsibility rests with the new owner. Claiming rules keep owner's and trainers in line, running their horses in a price range where their chances of winning are logical but rarely a sure thing.
