A decision could be made at an open meeting either later that evening or at the regular council session March 22. It is imperative, says Mr. Nutting in a letter to council, that a course of action be decided upon before March 25. Tender offers being held by the city for installation of services to the west side cannot be held beyond that date. The bids received by the city were opened Feb. 23. Each of four firms submitted bids on alternate projects, one for complete services for Phase 1 development and the other for only partial services. When council approved the capital budget this year it decided that the amount spent on Warm days to continue A series of mild weather systems moving through B.C. should mean a continuation of the warm spell for at least the next three days. Skies are expected to be mostly sunny and winds will be from the west 20 mph and gusty. Temperatures during the day should reach 40 above, dropping down to near 20 above at night. The high and low temperatures Monday should be 42 above and 27 aboye. The record temperatures for March 8 are 64 above, set in 1906, and 34 below, set in 1951 COMPLETE CARPET AND LINOLEUM INSTALLATION HAMILTON'S FLOOR COVERING LTD. 909 3rd Ave. S. Ph. 327-5454 west side services would depend on the money available, which in turn depends on financing arrangements for $1.36 million still needed to pay for secondary sewage treatment facilities. Mr. Nutting's letter to council reviews toe situation, noting that while the city has been assured it can borrow the money the actual arrangements and the cost of borrowing are not yet set. He also proposes a March 8 meeting of builders and real estate developers to obtain estimates of construction proposals for the rest of this year and all of next year. The meeting would also explore the possibility of contractors joining forces to develop 50 to 100 sites at a time. Statistics from this meeting would be available to council at the proposed March 15 meeting. Tonight's meeting of council will be preceded by one of the regular open meetings at which members of the public can speak out on any matters pertaining to civic affairs. The "town hall" meeting starts at 7 p.m. There will also be a public hearing on the zoning bylaw amendment dealing with quality control and esthetics in residential buildings. The bylaw, which has been given first reading, sets out rules for factory - fabricated units, which are becoming increasingly popular in the city. It would prevent long, unbroken lines of similar houses. The amendment also gives toe Municipal Planning Commission somewhat increased discretionary powers in dealing with the esthetic quality of proposed developments'. There will also be a delegation from Pollution Control-Southern Alberta regarding a proposed "Lethbridge recycl- Weekend collisions injure 9 persons Government offering free tax advice Free advice on income tax problems is being offered in Lethbridge this week by the department of national revenue.

The anti-pollution group is asking council's co-operation in the project, possibly as part of the annual spring clean-up. The city's new fire bylaw is up for approval tonight. As previously agreed, the bylaw contains no changes regarding open fires and burning barrels. This may be dealt with later. It does contain suggested rulings on fireworks aind firecrackers. The bylaw would ban sales of both to persons under 21 and provide controls on any displays. Also on the agenda is a bylaw amendment that would reduce the size of city council to seven. Up for final reading is the bylaw to abolish the Economic Development Commission, Little change in circulation at library OUR OSCAR "My doctor says I am in top physical shape. Guess it's from chasing after No. 1 bus all the time." The only service point showing any increase in circulation, said George Dew the chief librarian of the Lethbridge public library, was the adult section of the central library. He also noted the adult section seemed to be doing more work with students during the day as well as in the evenings. Mr. Dew attributed the library's January decline in other library service points to the improvement of elemen t a r y school libraries. A complete survey of the children's library service in the city is planned for this month with the hope some recommendations can be discussed at the April library board meeting. Several special groups visited the library in January. The groups consisted of education students from the University of Lethbridge, some new Canadian students from the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute and several groups from Catholic Central High School. In the first week of January the library assisted in a film festival at the Yates Memorial Centre. The library's contribution consisted of training a dozen projectionists and lending four projectors for the festival. A system by which Alberta college students can transfer many of their courses with full credit to Alberta universities may be available this fall, and will definitely be organized within a year, says Education Minister Robert Clark. Mr. Clark, in a Herald interview in Edmonton, said there is "no common sense" to the existing situation, where college students taking a variety of two-year programs cannot transfer them to universities for further study. "Right now we have the situation of a boy who goes to college here for two years and can't transfer to any Alberta university, so he goes to the States," Mr. Clarksaid. "Two years' later, he comes back to Alberta with his university degree and starts studying at the University of Alberta or University of Calgary for his master's degree - because he already has a first degree from another university." Mr. Clark said the Alberta universities commission has established a special committee in co-operation with the universities co-ordinating council, which is to formulate policies by which such students can transfer to Alberta universities instead of being forced to move to the U.S. "We've said to them that they've got to work out ar-rangements for transfering courses within toe whole post-secondary education system, and if they can't do this, we've told them we'll have no option but to change toe existing situation by legislation," Mr. Clark said. T..2 committee is to make its report by June, so there could conceivably be some system of transfer operating in time for toe fall university term. Mr. Clark said the possibility of a student attending two or more institutions at the same time, for example taking four university and one college course, is "down the road bit," but still a likely development. The Lethbridge Community College has been seeking some system of transfer for several years, since each year a num ber of its students leave for the United States. College President Dr. C. D. Stewart said recently Mr Clark has asked for any suggestions he might have concerning transfer, and the department of education has also been in touch with other Alberta college presidents. At present, three LCC business education graduc'.:s are attending the University of Albert in its commerce faculty, with about Vh. years of credit for their two LCC years, but they are the first LCC students allowed to transfer, and it was only on an experimental basis. If the provincial transfer arrangement tT,'>v3s to the system being pushed by the colleges, most LCC specialist programs including business, outdoor rec- reation, communications, some liberal education and others would be transferable. Since Alberta colleges are limited by law to providing a maximum of two years in any program, many LCC programs are specifically dezigned to 1-fer the first two years of three and four-year programs, with the expectation that students in- terested in continuing will transfer with their LCC diplomas to American colleges or universities offering the last two years. Mr. Clark said the comprehensive transfer system wmid involve agricultural colleges and technical institutes as well as community colleges and universities.

Workers on job at U of L site Union workers were back on the job at the University of Lethbridge construction site this morning following a meeting between Poole Construction Limited trouble shooter John Hall, Plessey Canada Ltd., and Alberta Government Telephones officials.
