Work has begun on surveying the protection factors of about 20 structures in the city which have been built since 19G8, ac- cording to R. G.

Last year a total of 23 people 'ere killed in traffic during wliday weekends in Alberta done. Alcohol was the con- ibuting factor in many in- :ances, with driver error ac- ounHng for a large number of rashes as well. Statistics have pointed out >at seat belts were not worn the case of most injuries, aid only one fatality victim ast year was wearing safety Once again the AMA will be rawing heavily on the assist- nce of ham radio operators, ying clubs, BCMP, City Po- ce and the news media in an -fort to convey the safety mes- ge to holidaying Albertans.

Opposes Air Service Change Register With CMC 300 Students Find New Jobs About 300 Letlibridge stu- dents registered with the Can- ada Manpower Centre have found summer jobs, a CMC spokesman said Thursday. Guy Sabey, student place- ment officer for the University of Lethbridge on loan to CMC for the summer, said these students had either been plac- ed directly by the manpower centre or had registered and then found jobs on their own. Although no accurate esti- mate of the total number of young people looking for jobs is available, have regis- tered so far with CMC. This figure is made up of 750 male and 425 female applicants. Mr. Sabey noted that despite 'mphasis during Hire a S'iu- dent Week on hiring girls, only 20 were able to find jobs, as compared with CO men. The general outlook for femala job seekers, he said, is not too favorable. Of the 275 employers con tacted since the start of Hire- a-Student Week, about 90 per cent have indicated they have hired or mil hire students The employers were contacted by five students from the Uni- versity of Lethbridge and the Lethbridge Community College who are working for CMC this summer. Mr. Sabey predicted that des- pite the discouraging outlook for female job seekers, the over all picture hi the city is such that most students should be able to find work. The local situation he felt, is better than in other centres.

Chamber transportation com- mittee chairman Steve Kotch said the brief was to be sent to the Candian Transport Com- mission Wednesday with a let- ter stating the city council has approved in principle the oppos- ition. He said a chamber delegation is to appear before city council at the regular meeting May li with the brief to get official city backing. A wire would then be sent to CTC indicating the city is back- ing the chamber stand to op- pose the joint application. City.council Monday right agreed unanimously that some form of official opposition to the joint application was needed. Chamber council chairman Morley Tanner said a letter should be sent to the CTC ask- ing that any decision be delay- ed until the LaBorde survey could, be finished and submitt- ed to the commission. The LaBorde survey was in- itiated to investigate the possi- bility of east-west jet service for Lelhbridge but at a joint Air Canada chamber meeting Mr. LaBorde said the survey could take in all transport re- quirements for the city. The survey would take 60 days to complete and will cost Mr. Kotch said the mayor sug- gested the LaBorde prop o s a 1 should wait until the reaction of the opposition to the joint application by PWA and Air Canada is determined.. "I feel personally this should go- before city council as soon as possible in order to get the weight of the report behind the chamber he said. Mr. Tanner said the chamber executive and the transpor committee also would like the proposal to go to city council He said a bad report could do no more harm while a good re- port may get us the service we want. "If we can get the CTC to wait for the report, we may get the results we are looking for." :LIFF BLACK, R.D.T., C.D.M, JIACK DENTAL LAB MEDICAL DENTAL BIDG.

The cheques began arriving in Lethbridge Wednesday. Because of this early mail- ing, some of the cheques issued from Edmonton [or Alberta, Yukon and the Yorthwest Territories may not [lave up to date addresses, or may not be in the amounts >ected by payees. Any change of this nature which should have been made in May will be adjusted in the June cheques. The spokesman advises that while the cheques will be re ceivtd early, they bear normal delivery dates and can only be cashed on or after those dates. Mr. Tanner said the chamber was mainly interested in retain- ing the excellent service now enjoyed. He said the reason for the chamber stand is the pos- sible 'decline in service as well as the detrimental effect the move will have on Time Air. The council said individuals and private businesses should sent in letters of opposition to the joint application also. "Letters from individuals and private businesses carry a lot more weight because the gov- ernment feels the people take the time to write since the move would prove a hardship on said Mr. Kotch.
