THE KIDS LIKE IT Lethbridge residents may be cursing the remains of the weekend snowfall, but the kids take it all in good stride. The piles of snow left by the street cleaners are perfect for tunneling through. -Walter Kerber Photo More cool weather coming to town Fly RON CA LOWELL Herald Staff Writer More cool weather is moving info the Lethbridge area and is Snow fails to halt Herald carriers Appreciation for the service provided by The Herald's car- rier boys during Ihe weekend si orm has been expressed by many subscribers. Only one out-of-the-ordinary problem developed Saturday, when through misunderstand- ing, half of one city route was not covered, Otherwise aH the hoys plowed through the deep drifts to reach all their custom- ers.

The weather office reports that the city can expect to have temperatures ranging from fows of five to 10 above to highs of 35 for the next lew days. Tiie street situation around the city is still pretty grim al- though all streets are open to traffic. It is still only one lane on most secondary streets. Officials of Ihe city engineer- ing department were holding a series of meetings this morning to plot their attack on the 19 inches of snow that was dump- ed on the city during the week- end. Downtown parking is practic- ally non-existent moval crews are concentrating their efforts on clearing major thoroughfares. All available equipment has been thrown into the fray. There is no indication of how soon normal travel will be re- stored in the city. The weather lias also played havoc with teleplione service. Repair crews have a backlog of calls to look after telephones that went on the fritz yester- day. All highways in southern Al- berta are open to traffic and driving conditions are good in most places. The highway around Pincher Creek is bare and dry with a few icy sections. The same holds true for the Crowsnest Pass area. The worst conditions exist from Fort Macleod to Nanton where large sections of rough ice are reported. still some Highway crews are scraping and salting in areas and trying to push back the high snowbanks near inter- sections. The outlook for today and Wednesday calls for continuing sunny and cool weather with highs near 35. The low tonight will drop to five to to above. Lethbridge was the coldest spot in Western Canada last night, as the temperature dipped to three belo1 The usual cold spots, Edmon- ton and Red Deer, had of 22.

While colds and other dis- eases are expected to take their toll in the calf popula- tions, sunburnt udders on range cows will present a special problem, And, according to depart- ment of agriculture experts, there is little the cattleman will he able to do about this prob- lem except wait it out. The spring calving season has just started for some cat Uemen and varies to about one- third complete.

Vaughan H e m b r o f f, chairman of the arena develop- ment committee, told council Monday he had received word 'rom the Vancouver firm that all pertinent responses have been received and are being compiled. Tile report was expected to come before council early next month. Aid. Hembroff said he I be in contact with the con- sultants today to determine if :here will in fact a delay. He said the consultants have received a "heavy response" to :he survey. In other business, council passed a resolution (o have census in either September or October this year, rather than in the spring. The action was opposed by Aldermen Vaughan Hembrotf, Bill Kergan and Steve Kotch. Aid. Hembroff said October will be too late for a census :o determine an accurate pop- ulation increase for 1971. He said with the questions raised ay the administration concern- .ng the January census, he 'can't make a judgment on the d e m a n d for housing in West Lethbridge." Cam Barnes said as far as he is concerned, the Jan- uary census was an accurate count of the city's population and showed a normal three per cent increase for last year. The fall census figures will be submitted to the province in 1973. Council also decided to apply he policy regarding travelling expenses for elected officials to .he city manager. That policy allows a day 'or expenses when travelling on city business. An amendment to raise the illowable expense to S4J> a day vas suggested, but subsequcnt- y dropped.

Lougheed compliments Gruenwald The Herald Legislature Bureau EDMONTON Dick Gruenwaltl (SC Lethbridge West) was singled out by Premier Peter Loughecd Monday with three other Al- berta MLAs for compliments on the quality of debate offer- ed in the legislature. The Premier commended the first-term ML A from Lethhridge for informing the government about southern Alberta concerns.

Searching for milk, the young calves will be unable to touch the tender and sore mothers. Experts point out that most of the suffering nil! be by those animals commonly referred to as "while faces" which also have white udders. Tire situa- tion is expected to perisist as long as snow stays on the ground. The live-stockman with only a few head of cattle may be able to provide some form of tem- porary relief by corralling and salving the females, but the un- dertaking would present an al- most impossible problem for those with large herds. The other most perplexing problem is a stwrlage of rough- age feed. District agriculturists in many districts of tile south state that many cattlemen just had no roughage to spare. Even at or more per ton it is hard lo get, arid just as hard to get it out to livestock on the range. Wlu'le tho sudden spring snowstorm is taking a heavy toll in the calf crops on the Blood and Pcigan Indian re- serves, Ihe Indian herds are said lo have taken their heav- iest beating during the prolong- ed cold spell in February. There was little forage left on reserve's ranges and stockpiled supplies were almost non-exist- ant by that time. The leaders of the two bands are said to be looking for pro- vincial or federal assistance to help them over the current problem. Meanwhile, other cattlemen are holding watch today in hopes that snow depths will re- cede sufficiently within the next day or two to enable cattle to move about more freely on range. The high, open spots are blowing clear. Cattlemen with herds in low-lying areas were prepared today to move feed supplies to the herds. The weatherman is calling for little changes in conditions in the south during the next few days just above freezing during the day and to around the zero mark at night. The freezing nig lit time temperatures are preventing heavy and sud- den water runoff and flooding. HOLIDAY FLOWERS LTD.
