Ray Campbell, pound operator at Cardston, said he first tumbled to the idea the dog must have a French owner when the word "chien" (French for dog) was stamped on the 1967 dog licence tag No. 288. The name on the tag, which he wasn't sure was the name of the dog or the town the owner might live in, is Rosemere. A check in a railway directory shows a town of Rose-mere, Quebec, population about 5,000. A contact is being made to try and locate the dog's owner. Mr. Campbell says the dog is "real sharp." He wonders it the owner lost it, or the dog just decided to take an extended holiday in the West. PART OF $10 MILLION RUN-The Lethbridge public stockyards is one of several sales yards in southern Alberta now pushing through more than $10 million worth of calves in the annual fall nun. Each fall, between October and December, some 120,000 calves from the rangelands of southern Alberta are rounded up and sold. Most of them are shipped east to the corn-belt area of Ontario to be fed for market. Main shipping points in the south are at Fort Macleod, Pincher Creek, Park Bend, Pakowki, Cardston, Lethbridge, Taber, Stavely, Brooks, Walsh and Medicine Hat.

Jack L a k i e, Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce council member told the regular council meeting Wednesday that dams upstream from Lethbridge divert water from the river decreasing the flow for Green light given local developer A ministerial order authorizing Lethbridge developer Hol-ger Frandsen to proceed with construction of 16 low-cost experimental housing units in the east Lakeview areas has been received. Alderman C. W. Chichester, who has been instrumental in bringing the scheme to fruition, told Wednesday's meeting Four months for Haffmans Edward Vincent Haffmans, 22, of Springfield, Mass., received a four-month jail term when he pleaded guilty in magistrate's court in Cardston Wednesday to possesion of marijuana. An original charge of possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking was dropped because of insufficient evidence. Twenty pounds of marijuana were seized when RCMP arrested Haffmans and another American Sept. 29 near Car-way. Charges were dropped against the other person travelling with Haffmans, and he was subsequently deported back to the U.S. of the Municipal Palnning Commission Fred Colborne, Alberta minister of municipal affairs, had given the go ahead for the last of three local low-cost projects and only registration of the land remained before construction could begin. Mr. Frandsen has Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation approval for . mortgage funds for 16 semi-detached units at 1413 Lakemount Blvd. Recently approved projects by Nu-Mode Homes Ltd. and Engineered Homes Ltd. bring the total number of units to 72. Price of the low-cost units is about $14,000, with monthly payments amounting to $97 a month. They are to be sold to persons with salaries in the 4,600 to $5,000 range and applications are screened by CMHC. many months, which in turn decreases the amount of effluents that can be discharged into the river to meet the standards set by the provincial department of health. He said the lack of flow in the river is one of the determining factors for the unusual high cost of the secondary sewage plant now under construction. "With a population of about 40,000, Lethbridge will have tp pay $4.6 million for its secondary sewage plant while Calgary, with a population of about 10 times that of Lethbridge paid only $10 million," he said. Fire bylaw A fire bylaw for Lethbridge may be ready for consideration by city council next month. Tom Nutting, city manager, is currently reviewing the various aspects of the proposed bylaw and evaluating their feasibility. Mr. Nutting said he was looking at such things as the impact new building regulations might have on the costs of construction. Enforcement of the bylaw would also have to be worked out, he said. One section which has been proposed for the bylaw would make illegal setting off or purchasing fireworks without the posting of a bond to cover possible damages. $ THE 71/1 x t k inc LETHBRIDGE-1621 3rd Ave. S.
