The possibility came about as a result of a trip to Montreal by Frank Payne, head of the livestock division, Canada department of agriculture, and professor C. M. Williams, University of Saskatchewan. The men visited the eastern city to find what qualities' urban consumers want in beef. The answer from the meat trade was Lethbridge beef. "I'd never heard of this description for beef animals before, but on examining the type of animal the buyers give this label it was clearly definable from the other cattle coming in from the west," said professor Williams. The major noticeable factor about Lethbridge beef was' the uniformity of the animals, they were in good trim but not over-fitted and they seemed to have the percentage of fat and lean most desired by the Montreal retailers. "It's not the sort of beef that comes from.Calgary and it is certainly not the run of cattle that come from the northern Prairies," said Professor Williams. "I don't know why Lethbridge should be able to come up with this uniform type of beef t'.iat is in demand unless it is the high proportion of cattle that come to the yards from feedlots." He said the lesson here was that as Canada moves toward an urban society the stockman is going to have to tailor his production to meet the type of demand developing. It is estimated that in not too many years 80 per cent of Canada's population will live in five cities. These people will not know OUR OSCAR anything about problems confronting the farm community, and if the type of meat they want is not available, they will buy some other kind of meat. Icy streets take toll in accidents Lethbridge city police reported 22 automobile accidents of the "fender-bender" variety between 12:20 Saturday afternoon and 6:40 Sunday morning. A police spokesman indicated there were probably more that were not reported. Damage in most cases was minimal, as were injuries. Slippery streets associated with an unseasonal snowfall that managed to arrive just a few hours ahead of spring were the major cause of the rash of minor accidents. Three persons were also hospitalized after slipping on the icy streets. Injuries included a broken hip, ankle and wrist. The RCMP reported one minor accident Saturday night, at the junction of Highways 4 and 5. Claude Ryan unable to attend dinner Claude Ryan, publisher of the Montreal paper LeDevoir, will not be able to keep his appointment as featured speaker at the Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce 82nd annual dinner Tuesday. Illness forced Mr. Ryan into hospital during the weekend. Substituting for Mr. Ryan will be Claude Lenelin, associate editor of Le Devoir. Mr. Lenelin will fill all of Mr. Ryan's speaking engagements which had been scheduled from Regina to the Vancouver. Wilf Bowns, chamber manager, announcing the substitution Monday, said it is unfortunate Mr. Ryan cannot attend the Lethbridge meeting but it is understood Mr. Lenelin is an able speaker. He said ticket sales are steady and they can be purchased at the chamber office or arrangements can be made to pick them up at the door. Tickets for the event are priced at $6.50 per person. No host cocktails will be served from 5:45-6:45 with the meal starting at 7. "Our provincial election scene is starting to warm up.

The dangerous time comes when there can bo a drastic change from day to day or even during the course of a day. Sometimes it is impossible to avoid a cold or cough, no matter how well we are prepared. The most important advice then is not to neglect a cold. If it does not clear up quickly or eems to be getting progressively worse, see your physician. He can most often prescribe a medicine that will get you over it quicker and with less discomfort.

City council and the citizens of Lethbridge will have another try at revising density standards in C-8 commercial zones on Mayor Magrath Drive tonight. A bylaw amendment doubling the present standards has been given first reading and a public hearing on the bylaw is set for tonight. Representatives of one of the two motels proposed for the Drive have indicated they will attend. The bylaw could be given second and third readings tonight. The matter is complicated by the fact that council has asked for alternatives to the original amendment. Erwin Adderley, executive director of the Oldman River Regional Planning Commission, will submit a report suggesting that the floor area ratio be increased only to 0.5. The amendment as it now stands is for an increase to 1.0. Mr. Adderley, in his report, states that his original recommendation when the density standards were considered last year still stands. At that time he said they should not be changed. Council defeated the amendment at that time. The report also recommends a setback of 30 feet for parking lots for more than 10 cars and adequate screening from public view. It is Mr. Adder-ley's opinion that while the revised proposal would still permit 10 and 12 storey structures, it would be possible to get by with two and three storey buildings and at the same time retain adequate parking space. Replacement of the Lethbridge Arena is another important item on council's agenda tonight. Mayor Andy Anderson said last week following a meeting with the Lethbridge and District Exhibition Board that a proposal involving the board would probably be matte at tonight's meeting. He suggested the proposal would not be the same as an earlier board proposal for a facility with only limited seating. Local service clubs, including the Kinsmen and Optimists, have pledged support for a fund to build a new arena. Council is also faced with making a decision on providing services to the west side. The contract award has been delayed while the city weighed the consequences of several courses of action. City Manager Tom Nutting is recommending that council approve a contract for $833,000 that would see full services installed, as originally planned. One reason given for the recommendation is that this would mean the west side reservoir would be completed in 1972, a facility needed for fire protection. The city had also called tenders for an alternate proj- ect that would provide only partial services. Some action may also be taken on river valley development. A resolution from Alderman C. W. Chichester asks that commercial campsites be allowed in two areas, one on either side of the Oldman River north of the Highway 3 traffic bridge. The first move would be rezoning of the land. The city's new fire bylaw is again up for approval. It was defeated at the last session when aldermen took exception to a section allowing fire inspectors entry to people's homes. The offending passage has been removed. The city manager has prepared a preliminary report on a suggestion by Pollution Control - Southern Alberta that a recycling campaign be carried out in the city. The report says the city could be liable for "substantial expense running into several thousand dollars" if city crews and equipment are used for pick-up of the items for recycling. The bylaw amendment that would reduce the number of aldermen from nine to seven (including the mayor) is up for third and final reading. Recycling drive suggested for city A meeting has been called for tonight at 8:30 p.m. by Pollution Control - Southern Alberta to organize a recycling campaign in Lethbridge. The meeting will be held in the upstairs office at 328 6th St. Work started on U of L phys-ed unit Earthmoving equipment was hard at work today excavating at the site of the University of Lethbridge $1.8 million physical education and recreation building. Bennett and White Construction, Ltd., of Calgary is contractor for the job, and the architect is George Watson, of the Lethbridge firm of Robins Mitchell Watson. The building will be finished by summer, 1972, and will house all physical education activities, as well as providing temporary quarters for the university's department of art and its printing services division, Unileth Press. The physical education and recreation building is a separate contract from the aca demic and residence building construction, although the two operations will be co-ordinated where necessary. S. and all interested persons have been asked to attend. PCSA is looking for volunteers for the various aspects of the campaign, which already has been given approval in principle by city council. The organizers are suggesting that Lethbridge be made the "recycle city of Canada" through a campaign to make Lethbridge citizens aware of the process of recycling. Local residents are to be asked.to keep different types of garbage separate. Plastics, glass, newspapers and flattened tins will be picked up in special drives and piled separately at the sanitary landfill in an effort to show what can be recycled and what is of no further use and must be disposed of. The campaign will be carried on tfa�v"'gh April and May, culminating in a big rally at Henderson Lake on the weekend of May 24. Plans call for the rally to include bands, bazaars, displays and an auction, proceeds from which would go toward a new arena fund. The organizers emphasize that pollution is caused by people and can be cured only by people; the co-operation of all citizens will be needed if the campaign is to be a success. Bank debits Debits to individual bank accounts for the month of February, 1971 in the Lethbridge area amounted to $89.2 million, the Canadian Bankers Association reports.
