The force rode on to camp the winter at Fort Macleod, af- ter warning the operators of Fort Whoop-Up against selling whisky illegally to the Indians. Frank Smith, manager of the local tourist association and an organizer of local RCMP cen- tennial celebrations, showed three CBC officials the fort here and related material. The CBC series, possibly three episodes, mil show the formation of the Mounties in Ontario in 1873, and the milo track west in 1874. Mr. Smith said inside shots will be taken in a studio, while outside scenes will be shot at various locations along the pol- ice march through Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta. Miller said. The of human eggs is necessary and II was that aspect which stumped scientists. Concern about women who were sterile because of a block tube from the ovary to the uterus, caused researchers to intensify the search for the means for "conception outside the Dr. Miller said. They came up with a means of recovering the eggs, through the use of hormone drugs. Eggs have been united male sperm, kept' outside t h e mother's body for five days and trans planted in the mother's uterus, but without success, he said.

Bill Lord. over city council actions By JIM MAYBIE Herald Staff Writer City council's decision to op- pose a request for an increase in the retail price of milk, drew the ire of Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce direc- tors Wednesday. Council's action was termed 'premature, ludicrous, irre- sponsible and very wrong." The "temerity" of council's ac- tion was questioned and a mo- tion was put forward that coun- cil be censured. After the smoke cleared, the chamber decided to let council know it questions the wisdom of council opposing the price increase until the facts are known whether the propos- ed increase is justified. The discussion began when a chamber member questioned council's reasoning for op- posing the milk price increase proposal when it has never questioned increases for other agricultural product. The city relies on agriculture for its existence, he said.

Baird was charged following the June 10 death of Soltys, who had been undergoing treatment for a gun shot wound to the abdomen he received during an incident at the Baird home April 15. Bainl was previously charged with the attempted murder of Soltys stemming from the same incident. A preliminary hearing on that charge concluded when Pro- vincial Judge L. W. Hudson ruled there was not enough evidence to warrant a trial. In rendering his decision Judge Hudson said if there had been a trial by jury and if he bad been the judge, the evi- dence he had heard would have left him no other alternative but to direct the jury to reach a not guilty verdict. Vaughn Hartigan, agent for the attorney-general in Leth- bridge, said the murder charge had been laid against Baird "because the matter took on an entirely different light when Soltys even after Judge Hudson's findings. He explained a coroner's in- quest into the cause of Soltys' death would not be held be- cause a criminal charge had been laid. "In such a situation all the evidence normally brought out in the inquest will be included during the preliminary hear- he said. Baird is currently free on cash and property bail. City police Inspector Glen for Baird's bail had to be ap- proved by an Alberta Supreme Court judge because a provin- cial judge or magistrate does not have the authority to grant bail to a person charged with non-capital murder.
