LETHBRIDGE MONUMENTAL AND TILE WORKS "We Have Been Satisfying Customers For Over 60 Years" 325 8th St. S., Lethbridge Phone 327-3920 they had been contacted recently by federal Supply Minister James A. Richardson, conference keynote speaker, concerning establishment of an investigating Canada West Council. Mr. Richardson said he had been in touch with several interested financial backers for a council. The two will attend a meeting in Calgary with Mr. Richardson and other interested per- sons next week to discuss possibilities. The council might or might not be situated in Lethbridge, although Calgary seems a front-runner at the present time. Conference officials also discussed what to do with all letters and documents pertaining to the OnePPE, and decided to place most of the material in the University of Lethbridge library archives. Lethbridge council, said by ex-plaining ,the charges and the law as it applies to all citizens, charges of discrimination will be lessened. He said the other main job of the workers will be to discuss how the person is to plead to a charge and the consequences of the various pleas. Depending on the work load, the workers will follow cases through, which may mean visits to the provincial Jail, contacts in the Lethbridge Friendship Centre, or any place where the workers can help the client. Research Essential Students Graduate Miss Delphy Chiyeko Tatebe of Lethbridge will graduate from the school of dental hygiene, University of Alberta, Edmonton, with a diploma in dental hygiene and a dental auxiliary certificate to be conferred at spring convocation, May 29. Dr. J. E. Andrews, director, of the Canadian Research Station at Lethbridge said recently that he believes agricultural research will have to be intensified if agriculture is to be reinstated to a profitable position. "If our farmers are to sell their products at a profit on an increasingly competitive market, they must either be subsidized or increase their productivity." "The latter is the more desirable alternative, but will depend on new technology that must be developed by research." "It will require higher yielding varieties, better cultural and fertilizer practices, continued control of diseases, insects and weeds and the most economical use of machinery." "The livestock industry will also require new technology to increase its efficiency and prevent sharp price fluctuations." Dr. Andrews adds that new crops will be required to replace some of the acreage now devoted to wheat. "This will not involve the simple introduction of crops from elsewhere. Most of these have already been tried." "It will involve breeding programs to develop better adapted varieties, research to develop optimum cultural prac tices and control of disease and insects specific to these new crops." Dr. Andrews says pollution has become a matter of national concern and among the issues will be the use and disposal of agricultural chemicals and agricultural wastes. "For many years the Lethbridge Research Station has been involved with research on the use of chemicals for insect, disease aid weed control." Mr. Rogers said Chief James Carpenter of the city police indicated the workers should also work with people put in Jail overnight and not charged with an offence. "The reason for the trial project is to find out if a full-time worker is warranted,*' he said. "If the project is a success, funds will be requested to get a full - time worker. Since funds for the John Howard Society come from the United Appeal and none can be used for projects during the year not budgeted for, funds will have to be obtained from outside sources." Mr. Rogers said to make sure the project is financed properly, the society is asking interested people who could offer free room and board for the workers contact him at the John Howard office. He said this would allow regular funds to be put to use at some other place. STUDENT SERVICES INC. Home owners.

Brief Opposes Air Change The Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce brief in opposition to Air Canada's application to pull out of Lethbridge and to Pacific Western Airlines application to take over the Calgary-Lethbridge run suggests the principle deciding factor should be the nature of the route with respect to the regional air carrier policy of the Canadian government. The brief was submitted to Ottawa prior to the cut-off date for opposition to the applications. The chamber claims that all points in a territory covered by the policy are not necessarily best served, nor capable of being served by a regional carrier (PWA). The brief suggests Leth- NOTICE TO CONSUMERS OF CITY UTILITIES During trie strike against the City of Lethbridge some areas of the city will not be rendered accounts for City-owned services billed as utilities. At the next normal billing date adjustments will be made for the areas not billed during the strike. City Hall is open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday and would be pleased to accept any payments on accounts. T. L. FERGUSON, City Manager bridge is such a territory and that consideration must be given to the type of service that best suits the needs of the citizens of Lethbridge and district and those travelling to and from this area. The chamber feels the status of the existing third level carrier (Time Airways Ltd.) could be adversely affected. Walter R. (Stubb) Ross, president of Time Air said the schedule prepared by PWA for the run would mean a loss of 60 per cent of his business, putting his company in a state of economic loss. He said he would be forced to leave Lethbridge. The chamber feels the schedule prepared by PWA indicates the company is going to take over the Air Canada portion of the service in and out of Lethbridge as well as the third level carrier's business.
