The rales at the landfill since Dis- pose All Sen-ices Ltd. took over its operation July 1 are the same as those that applied Commercial firms are chare- 1 when the city ran the dump. One change that will occur in the next few weeks is that the landfill will be fenced off and closed after p.m. Large containers will be placed out- side the fence for persons wish- ing to make a deposit after tours. There are some differences in the actual operation. A manned hut now stands at the landfill entrance and commer- cial landfill clients are charged as they enter. A check is made the measured volume of the garbage and the charge computed accordingly. Non residents of the city are also charged. Persons from Hardicville, for example, would pay the 25 cents per cubic yard Under the terms of the con tract with Dispose All, the city reduces its cost for land fill operations by per month.

Andy Andrews, exhibitor manager, said a good start hai been made with this year' float and that next year, whe there is more time for plan ning, different arrangement, might be made.

VAST POTENTIAL Y u g o slavia's hydroelectri energy potential has been est mated at 65 million kilowa hours, according to offici; data published in Belgrade. City council is going to be sked by the new board of po- ce conanissimers to re-eval- uate its request tot the police rce more strictly enforce the osing bylaw. In the interim, the cpmmis- oners decided, UK police will ontimie with present enforce- ment policies. Under the policy, a eom- laint must be made against business breaking the bylaw wfore the police can take ac- ton. Council's request for more trict enforcement of the by- aw was made following rep- esentation this week by local lerchants. Alderman Jim Anderson aid council was not sure who irauld initiate action coun- cil was not ready to throw out ,ie bylaw and was not surs vho should enfbrc. it. L. D. MacLean said he wught the people who should policing the bylaw are the merchants themselves. He made mention of the pro- essional groups such as engi- neers and lawyers who enforce rules from within their group, Mr. MacLean reminded the joard that no merchant at the ast city council meeting had >een prepared to initiate ac- tion against another for not observing the bylaw. Chief James Carpenter said no law could be enforced to the letter and added it would take a "fair" amoi-Jit of staff to en- force the closing bylaw. The chief said, "If we en :orce this law we'll have start closing gas stations a p.m. in the summer; p.m. in the fall, and 6 p.m. they sell car tapes and the like." The board's action was no meant to suggest opposition tc the bylaw. Mr. MacLean said there may in fact be a sound commercial basis-for an early closing by- law, but it must be shown by ths merchants. He mentioned police should not be expected to enforce a bylaw simply because the merchants want it and expect the public to pay the penalty. One possible problem arising out of a strict enforcement of the bylaw would be the clos- ing of service stations on Sun- ays and Ihe problems it could reate for travellers, low on ;asoline, wishing to continue Ivrough Lcthbridge, but being tranded because they could lot fill their tanks. Riding team to enter 'Hat fair The award winning Leth- bridge Community College equestrian team directed by Dee Olsen, has been invited to participate at Medicine Hat's innual parade and rodeo start- ing Thursday.

It is believed there are more horses in Al' erta today than before ths age of mechanized farming.
