Ten children working with an Opportunities for Youth squad chose their favorite 10 names from among 70 suggest- ed by young Herald readers. The names picked were: Tuffy, Cinnamon, Honey Bear, Twinkle Toes, Grizz. Daisy, Bomber, Koko, Amigo and Cleo. MRV meet set for 7 p.m. Pro, con or neutral; Leth- bridge residents who wish to express themselves on the question of the piece of mo- torized recreational vehicles within city limits will have their opportunity tonight. A public meeting to discuss the problem will be held in Gym 2 of the Civic Sports Cen- tre beginning at 7 o'clock. The meeting is sponsored by the parks and recreation depart- ment. Bill Brown, parks and rec- reation superintendent said the parks' commission is seeking a number of "inputs" in the dis- cussion before venturing any recommendations to city coun- cil. Mr. Brown encouraged any- body who wants to drive a mo- tor vehicle off city streets and roads or anybody who objects to such a policy to be at the meeting. The decision for the final name nov goes back to Herald readers, 12 years or younger, who have until Saturday, July 31, to make their final choice by filling in the ballot printed below this article. The bear, an 18 month old female, once resided in Banff National Park and took it upon herself to form a tourists' wel- coming committee of one. Park officials thought they might have to destroy her hs- causo of her nuisance ways, hut instead found a home for her in the local game farm. Young Herald readers are now asked to pick their fa- vorite name from among the 10 listed on the ballot. The one with tha most votes will be- come the bear's name. The child who suggested the winning name will receive 15 tickets to the Stewart Game Farm, plus from the game farm and The Herald. Postmark deadline for votes is midnight Saturday. The contest is closed to chil- dren of Lethbridge Herald em- ployees and Stewart Game farm employees, and the chil- dren who selected the 10 final names. The bear's name and the name of tte child who sub- rrdtted it will be announced in Wednesday's paper, Aug. 4. The bear-namirj? contest is sponsored by the game farm and The Herald. The children who chose the 10 final names are working with Conservation for Youth, an Opportunities for Youth- funded group offering environ- mental conservation courses for youngsters.

The task force will study changes in Alberta society and is to consist of a series of studies, largely initiated by local interest groups. It was first proposed by Premier Harry Strom in late 1969. of an area for motorized reci-eation vehicle use was tabled until Aug. 9. Further reoorts from the parks and recreation department are expected. Costs 'or setting up a MRV park were estimated by City Manager Tom Nutting at and Heavy infestations of beet webworms have been discovered in fields of rapeseed on farms near Vulcan and High River, with lighter infestations reported in several other fields in the Lethbridge hit i Dr. Neil Holmes, head of crop entomology at the Lethbridge Research Station, is urging farmers with rapeseed crops to check then- fields for signs of webworm damage. The insects eat the pods leaves, often stripping the plant to the stock. An abnormal whii-ish appearance hi the rape field is an indication of infestation. Dr. Holmes said the webworm can be controlled by spraying the field with the insecticide Dylox. He said it is important to spray as soon as possible after larvae are discovered in a field because "they can do a lot of feeding in a day." The webworm feeds on a number of other broad-leaf plants, including sugar beets, Dr. Holmes said. Infestation of several beet fields have also been discovered this year. The webworm larva, which does the damage, is small and pale green when it hatches. At maturity, it is about one inch long, with too light stripes down its back, two stripes down the sides, and circular spots on its is turner A proposed study of the central business district, including a possible tri-level government complex, was vetoed 'by city council Monday. The Merform Planning and Design Ltd. of Calgary study, to cost between study 1 down was to have provided the background for a rejuvenation of the downtown business area. Council was split on the need for more information to guide planning. Deputy Kayor Rex Little said the necessary data had been gathered and that the main problem was the city's inability to retrieve when it was needed. The city could "bhw on the study" but he would have no part of it, he said. Aid. Jim Anderson, while agreeing with Deputy Mayor Little on tile data retrieval problems, said the city required an "adequate data base" for decision-making. There had been no decision yet on whether a government complex to stabilize the downtown section is a workable concept, he said, and this is what the study was all about. If the study is not done, the city will continue to "stumble through" its planning problems, he said. Mayor Andv A n d e r s on agreed with Aid. C. W. Chi-chester that the government complex was still in tile "pipe-dream but said it was necessary to get the background information to bring the idea to fruition. Aid. Vera Ferguson termed the study "money saying the present council would not be around to implement it. Aid. Anderson said this was all the more reason for this council to come up with some planning guidelines. Several alderman suggested the present council had not dealt adequately with the problem of providing a general set of guidelines for the city's future development. Aid. Vaughan Hembroff said council had been "wandering" and somebody was going to have to provide some leadership. It's time there was some long-term planning done, he Counci Because of a pressing need for residential lots in the city, council agreed Monday to sell 20 such lots to individual families. The subdivision is adjacent to the new nursing home, between 13th and 15th Streets and 15th and 16th Avenues N. The lots will be sold on a single-lot basis, only one per family, a per front foot for the land and ?50 per front foot for services. Council also agreed to seek p r o v i n cial government approval for a plan to subdivide the former prisoner-of-war land into five-acre parcels for sale, to facilitate orderly development of the industrial park. However, council tabled an application for rezoning which would havfl permitted a proposed medical-dental clinic at 2931 loth Ave. S., pending a new application by the developers. On another matter, council referred to the finance con> mittee a proposal that the agreement with Wayne Crop-ley regarding operation of the boat rental concession at Henderson Lake be redrafted. The motion called for a refund of the license fee to Mr. Cropley, with substitution of a fee of five per cent of gross income up to and 10 per cent over that figure. The motion also asks the city manager to investigate the cost of cleaning up the weeds in Henderson Lake. Council also was told the city has received a rebate of from the Workmen's Compensation Board because of a favorable accident record during 1970. The city will apply to Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation for to help pay for tire secondary sewage treatment plant, although at present only is available for the project from CMHC briefs City council agreed Monday to apply for the maximum amount allowable from CMHC two4hirds of the extra financing needed to complete the million sewage treatment project. If additional CMHC funds are made available to the province for sewage treatment projects later this year, the city's share could be increased above the figure. It was for this reason council was advised to seek the maximum amount. The loan carries a 25 per cent forgiveness clause, which would mean a saving to the city of just over on the Whatever portion of the that cannot be obtained from CMHC may be borrowed through Alberta Municipal Finance Corporation. A recommer.datior of the Municipal Planning Commission that a fee be charged for rezoning of property which increased its value or density was rejected by city council Monday. However, council agreed to sponsor a resolution to the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association requesting a provincial government task force to deal with the matter. The MFC had recommended a fee be charged for upward rezoning to guard against abuses by individuals selling rezoned land presumably intended for development, and to help pay for increased servicing O! if I "First P release the the travel bureau wasn't satisfied with the performance cf the students, then the government conducts a survey to see where the travellers are PACK GARBAGE DISPOSAL BAGS For all household garbage, own grass, etc. Keep your yard and city c ean.
