SAVE TURN TO PAGE 9 Claresholm Citizens' Meeting Urges 'Go' On Drainage Plan Ducks Unlimited will spend million in Canada this year on waterfowl conservation pro- jects, according to the organi- zation's southwestern Alberta representative, George Free- man. Mr. Freeman told the Leth- bridge Downtown Khvanis Club Tuesday the funds will be spent on 826 different projects de- signed to maintain the existing waterfowl reproduction rate. Southern Alberta now has three such projects underway, near Lomond, Foremost and Stirling, where efforts are being made to provide suitable mat- ing conditions for migrating ducks or geese. About 60 per cent of all North American waterfowl nest in Canada, Mr. Freeman said, particularly on the. prairies, where lakes offer abundant food and nesting habitats. Ducks Unlimited was form- ed in 1937 when a group of American sportsmen became concerned over the drastic de- cline in waterfowl populations and over the years has spent more than million on its irojects. Squadron Seeks Members It was decide at a citizens' meeting in Clareshblm last night that the town council should be instructed to proceed with stages two and1 three of the town's drainage program. An amendment to the motion to delete stsge two was de- feated. Stage two involves the build- ing of three lagoons south-west of the town at a cost of Mayor Ernie Patterson, who called the meeting in the Claresholm Elementary School auditorium, explained the la- goons were needed to catch runoff water from the town during spring thaws and sud- den rain storms. This would prevent wash-out of a newly completed drainage ditch to the creek south of town. Details of the proposed pro- ject were explained by Under- wood and McLellan Ltd. of Cal- gary, the town's consulting en- gineers. Mayor Patterson and council told the audience of about 300 that rejection of the motion to proceed with the project would be taken as an indication of a lack of confidence. Both he and council would have to resign in that case, he said. The project was defeated in a ratepayer's plebiscite last month, at which time Mayor LETHBRIDGE FURRIERS RESTYL1NG RELINING REPAIRING CLEANING AND GLAZING 514 3rd AVE. S. PHONE 327-2209 Patterson indicated he might resign. Town ratepayers now have the right to petition for another plebiscite on the matter. Dr. Sidney Cornish, who has opposed the borrowing of the money to build the lagoons, said the only thing the meeting accomplished was to demon- strate that the people did not want the mayor and councillors to resign en masse. The meeting indicated1 the agoohs are solely for the pur- of constructing a golf course, which will at best be no better than the one the town now has and at worst the com- jlete waste of he said.
