can be a confounded But until other trees are ready to take their cant these poplars be en dured a little longer Hundreds of trees planted on Dieppe Boulevard not many years ago have now been cut exposing a forest of poles and for several years until new trees put on some height Now the antitiee crews have in on one the prettiest streets in the city 6th enue between Mayor Ma and 28th and the non cotton poplars aie coming The excuse that they are infected with an insect that causes galls on the and the adjacent home owners wanted them Lets look at the The trees are indeed But when in leaf the galls are not notice able except on close and when not in leaf are hardly The appearance of the trees is not yet impaired at Without treatment the trees would probably live lor another ten and serve the pur pose that only tiees can If their eventual death w as the proper course would be to take out every second tree ami plant replace ments and in ten years the re placements would be big enough so removal ot the remaining poplars then would not be such a But their eventual death is not New treatments are coming out which sug gest effective control of the mite that causes the to whom do the trees be long the residents behind have some piior but what ot the public right By what authority does the city destroy trees on public propei ty at private re quest 11 the homeowners dont want to look through their front windows at maybe Lethbndge should for get about trying to be an attractive And chopping off tree which this city spends so much time and money isnt an acceptable alternative to cutting down the whole some of the earlier plant ings might have been of better vari eties But cant the transition be grad without such offence to what few good trees the city does have

Pakistan is much closer to disaster than The breakup of the artifi cial nation has er been more im minent Demands for greater control of their own affairs have grown in East Pakistan and it appeared that a compromise might be worked out until President Yahya Khan post poned the scheduled meeting of the constituent Some agreement may yet be reached on a division of powers between the two regions
