City police would like the help of Lethbridge and area resi- dents to apprehend the offend- ers by notifying the police de- partment, giving their own name and address and the li- cence number of any vehicle they observe violating this sec- tion. After receiving this informa- tion, the police will take the necessary steps to have offend- ers brought before the courts ar.d dealt with according to law. There is a penalty of which can be paid voluntarily but those persons required to appear in court might be given a heavier fine. Environment Group Being Formed An environment council, to co-ordinate information aboul active environment groups in Lethbridge, is being formed by Mrs. Joan Puckett. The council will draw its membership from various groups and service clubs in the city, as well as environment organizations including the Al- berta Wilderness Association, Pollution Control Southern Al- berta and the Lethbridge His- torical Society. Mrs. Puckett said groups planning activities would be asked to inform the environ- ment council, which would then inform all of its own member- ship so co-ordination and liai- son could be kept up. Individuals, Mrs. Puckett said, would be better off join- ing an action group like PC-SA or the AWA, since her council will not sponsor any projects. She also plans to contact all environment groups in Canada and the United States for in- formation about their ac- tivities. WESTMINSTER DRUGS A'vP_y Westminster Shopping Centre T3thSt. N.

STUBBS Has it ever occured to you how irritated and challenged we feel when some headline hunting person attacks the drug pro- fession? Well, it's true, and we feel it's about that the mir. lor of fact be put in ftont of these irually biased and seeking charges. We be- lieve, and know, that you have a definite right to understand what goes into the price of drags. In fact, we're glad to explain the huge invest- ment and risk taken in the man- ufacture of drugs even the risk taken in opening the doors of a small retail pharmacy. And, while you're thinking along this line, when was the last time you saw, or knew of, a wealthy retail pharmacist? Free parking?

Payment mJ Of Taxes Million Tax payments at city hall for the week ended June 4 totalled Total payments to date are now over the million mark, about 15 per cent of the esti- mated 1970 levy of almost million. Payments for the same week last year were only but a higher figure for prepaid tax- ex brought the 1969 total to this date to 20 per cent of the levy. Final date for penalty-free payments is June 30. Penalties on late payments begin at one per cent and range up to eight per cent. A spokesman lor the asses- sor's office said all tax forms have been mailed out to resi- dents, with the exception of those that are paid by mort- gage companies. These are mailed directly to the com- pany, and the receipt is sent to the resident after payment is made. An official of (he research! station said today people should be sure to water all trees and shrubs well because they could be suffering due to a lack of natural moisture. Plants in the garden should be watered, and they should not be allowed to wilt, lie said. "They will grow well in hot weather if watered adequately. The city's engineering de- partment says water consump- tion Thursday came very close to breaking the record of 12.8 million gallons. Lethbridge residents used just over 12 million gallons of water during Thursday's heat wave. Consumption for Tuesday was 11 million gallons; for Wednesday 11.7 million. A spokerman for the depart- ment said that while it is diffi- cult to establish an exact av- erage consumption figure, the rates for the past few days have definitely been above nor- mal for this time of year. Meanwhile, southern Alberta irrigation districts are re- ceiving a heavy demand on ir- rigation water supplies, but no problems have been antici- pated.
