Bill Todd, returning officer for the Lethbridge West consti- tuency, says enumeration will probably get under way in his riding Tuesday. The process is expected to begin Wednesday in Lethbridge East. Enumerators will call on every home in the city to regis- ter voters, and will make one return visit if the occupant is not at home. Any eligible voter whose name is omitted from :he voters list during enumera- ion may be included by con acting the returning office in lis riding. To be eligible to vote, a per- son must be a Canadian citizen or British subject, have lived in Alberta for one year and his Mlitieal division for one month, md be 18 years old by elec- tion day. The provincial voting age was recently lowered to 18 torn 19. Both Mr. Todd and Nick Velk- er, returning officer for Leth- jridge East, are currently hir- ing enumerators. The Lethbridge West return- ing office is located in the form- er Cut Rate Furniture Store at 2nd Ave. and 8th St. S. Tele- phone numbers are 328-2546 and 328-3463. HE'S GOT THE FRESHEST MOUTH IN TOWN Alberta Litter Bear, a non-profit project of the Travel and Convention Association of Southern Alberta, gives a big yawn and who should appear but Warren Rowntree, 6, and Larry Campbell, 12. Jerry Rowntree, 8, and David Campbell, 7, all of Lethbridge, try to puzzle the whole thing out. The litter bears have a double function, to attract litter to containers and away from the roadside, and to convey the message that it's the only bear safe to feed. The litter bears are available from TCASA and cost Photo by Ed Finlay West development top item West side development will be the main item on the agen- da for tonight's special meet- ing of city council. Pharmacy Facts from 0. C. STUBBS Most of us going out into open country this time of year know about the constant dan- ger from lick bites may even know that 2% or better of these highly-dan- gerous inse c t s k transmit the al- I most alw ays deadly spo 11 e d I fever. So it's 'vitally import- Uant, when you've I been in open country or have handled ani- mals or carcasses coming from open country, that you always lake the pains to search your body for ticks. A tick is nor- mally about the size of the bead of a match, but when it's gor- ged with your blood, it can reach the size as large as the eraser on a lead pencil. Cor- rect removal of a tick demands that its mouthparts are not in your skin and that no Dart of the tick is rubbed into 'lie wound or any other breaks ;hat may be present in your skin! For correct removal gently grasp the forward part of the tick with forceps or tweezers (a handkerchief or DI- clean cloth can be used) and lift it slowly! to form a ''tent" of skin at the point of bite. Then take a sterilized needle or knife and carefully Insert this instrument INTO THE TICK'S MOUTHPARTS to lift them out. Petroleum jelly, a lighted cigarette or match, or nail polish applied to the tick will make it release its grip. The vitally-important thing you have to do is to remove the tick- Immediately!

There may also be discussion on several smaller Kerns left over from Monday's regular agenda. The importance of proper planning for the west side is emphasized in a report to coun- cil by City Manager Tom Nut- ting. Mr. Nutting points out that the city has invested million to date in the west side and in the next 12 to 18 months It's going to be hot Picnickers, golfers and other outdoorsmen will not be avail- able at any telephone this weekend the weather will be too perfect. The weatherman has forecast highs in the 85-90 degree range for the entire weekend under sunny skies. The lows will be 55 60 degrees. With very little chance of precipitation, the outlook is ex- cellent. One injury One minor injury and damage resulted from a car collision Thursday in the 400 block of 7th St. N. Police reported a car driven by Thersa Manntai of 1225 Staf- ford Drive collided with a car driven by Jeanette Alberta Slingerland, also of Lethbridge, as she backed her car out of a parking spot. S'lingerland was taken to Lethbridge Municipal Hospi- tal, treated for shock and re- leased. will be considering investing another to He asks that council, before making any hard and fast deci- sions, travel to at least three centres that have undertaken similar projects, t o evaluate their success. He lists several such towns, including Ktimat, B.C., and Reston, Virginia. Another recommendation is that council explore the idea of forming a crown corporation to act as land developer and con- trol all building development, possibly right down to the "last doorknob." Directors for such a corpora- tion would be appointed by council on a five-year basis and would have the authority to hire staff to carry out the controls contained in their frame of reference. Mr. Nutting also suggests quality control can best be maintained through large sub- divisions, 100 to 200 acre par- cels being more conducive to the building of quality units. Council may also have be- fore it a report from Police Chief J. H. Carpenter on the cost and problems associated with stricter enforcement of the city's early closing bylaw for stores. Chief Carpenter was asked to prepare the report Monday when council voted to ask the Board of Police Commission- ers for tighter control on the closing bylaw. The board Wed- nesday decided to ask council to re-evaluate its decision. Other items left over from Monday include a motion by Alderman Vaughan Hembroff that would set a "no grant" policy for cultural and charit- able organizations and second and third readings of the mon- ey bylaw for the new Hender- son Lake ice facility.

The enumeration is to be completed in both ridings by Aug. 14, with the date for filing nomination papers Aug. 16 from noon to 2 p.m. Candidates have been select- ed for both city ridings by the Progressive Conservatives, New Democrats and Social Credit party. The Liberal party is not expected to nominate candidates in Lethbridge, and no independets have expressed an interest in running. Until the enumeration is com- pleted, it will not be known how many voters reside in each riding.

The dividing line bcU'cen the constituencies of Lehtbridge East and West is 13th St., with the exception of the portion be- tween 2nd Ave. and 10th Ave. S., where the boundary runs down Mayor Magrath Drive. TCASA official supports stand The Travel and Convention Association of Southern Alber- was definitely not mistaken in its assessment of eight tour- ist counsellors supplied by the Alberta Government Travel Bureau, according to a TCASA official. John Neal was replying this morning to charges made Thursday by Douj, Evans, di- rector of the government bu- reau in Edmonton. "The eight girls supplied by the government working in Lethbridge were doing south- ern Alberta more harm than Dr. Neal said. Prior to the demand two weeks ago by the TCASA board that the government withdraw Cheir employees from Leth- bridge, 12 of the 33 TCASA di- rectors made unannounced visits to the tourist huts. "They found them to be fre- quently rude and often ignor- ant of the area in which they were supposed to counsel." In one case a director went into a tourist hut during the AIC convention and heard a California tourist ask for assis- tance in finding accommoda- tion. "Why don't you try Cal- was the advice the counsellor gave him. In another, a fisherman came into the hut seeking in- formation on the best angling spots in southern Alberta. There are none" was the re- Charge dropped A charge of possession of hashish brought against a Leth- bridge man in Fort Macleod several weeks ago has been dropped. Robert Whitford of 939 9th St. S. had the charge against him dismissed on order of the Al- berta attorney general's depart- ment. tort from the government girl. A third was seen to wait 20 minutes to be helped and then was asked rudely, "What do you Dr. Neal said the govern- ment workers showed no com- parison to persons hired by TCASA in the past who have always been extremely courte- ous and helpful. Meanwhile, an official in Medicine Hat sand there has been little or no trouble there with tourist counsellors sup- plied by the government. "They really go a step fur- ther than is he said.
