Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 1, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, October 1, 1973 Navy League building improvements waiting Improvements to the Navy League headquarters, an army barracks more than 30 years old, may not be made unless the United Way has a surplus of funds from the 1973 campaign, or unless the organization is able to obtain funds from another source. Darlin Linn, head of the United Way budget and allocations committee, says it is unlikely the Navy League will receive an additional 500 which it has requested besides the regular contribution, for im- provements to the building un- less there are surplus funds from this year's campaign.

W. Hudson time to study the transcript of the first part of the trial. The trial of James Brewster, 18, was begun July 27 but was adjourned due to an irregularity in the serving of the certificate of analysis. Brewster was arrested April 19 after RCMP investigators found a hashish pipe in a jacket owned by Brewster.

October testing will give farmers adequate time to receive results from the laboratory and still order fer- tilizer requirements during the winter months. Fall testing will also allow farmers to take specific samples of problem areas in the field. The problem areas will be readily visible by poor crop growth immediately following harvest. Mr. Carson says farmers should limit the tested areas to 60 or 70 acres to get a better indication of the fertility of the land. When taking samples, farmers should look for 15 to 20 locations where growth had Bridge work start near Work on the 6th Avenue S. bridge is scheduled to start this week with relocation of utilities and the city animal shelter. The animal shelter will be moved to a temporary loca- tion until a permanent shelter can be built. Its present loca- tion in the river valley will be buried under tons of fill used to build up the east side approach to the crossing. Outline plans of the new shelter and the beginning phase of nursery and greenhouse develpment are expected to be presented to city council's next meeting Oct. 9. Some has been set aside in the city's revised capital budget for the project. Council approved the million tender for the bridge approach road work last week. Completion date for the million two-lane bridge is late November, or early December of 1974. been uniform. Problem areas where growth had been restricted should be sampled separately. These samples should be about six inches deep. If testing for nitrogen and sul- pher requirements, farmers should also take some samples at 12 and 24-inch depths. The samples should have lumps crushed and be mixed in a clean pail. A pound of soil must then be removed and spread thinly on clean paper to be allowed to air drv. Once dry. the sample should be placed in a plastic bag liner in the sample box. Immediate labelling is re- quired to ensure accurate results. Mixed samples can result in misleading results. A specific number for each sample corresponding to a field number is also required. This number will be used to provide the results of the test. All samples can be packag- ed together and shipped to the laboratory. A fee of per sur- face sample is also required. The laboratory is located at 6909 116 St.. Edmonton. The city and the provincial government will again be ask- ed to support the child-care co-operative at the University of Lethbridge even though government financial aid was denied the centre this year. Organizers of the centre are attempting to confirm finan- cial support for next fall at an early date to prevent the last- minute scramble for funds that they were faced with this year. The centre was operating for about three weeks without sufficient funding until the U of L board of governors came to the rescue with a S5.000 grant last week. The centre fell into financial difficulty when the city's social services department turned down the centre's re- quest for a operating grant, says the finance co- ordinator for the U of L students society council. John Mclnnis says a provin- cial grant of was dependent on the city finan- cially supporting the centre. Because the city refused to support it, the centre also lost any chance of obtaining the funding from the provincial government. The centre is concerned that it may not be able to receive any funding from the universi- ty next year because of the controls the government has placed on the university's total operating capital. So, the department of social services for the city and the province may have to be the major source of funding if the centre is to operate during the. 1974-75 term, Mr. Mclnnis said. "Maybe we didn't present it to the city in the right he suggested.

FABBI OPTOMETRIST 314 8th Street South APPOINTMENTS PHONE 327-3331 Easy does it Student Bob Miller balances precariously in a small boat and prepares to lower a dredge to the bottom of Henderson Lake. The dredging is one of a series of tests used to study the lake and its un- derwater life. points to determine the depth of the lake. Meanwhile, student Bob Watt was performing water chemistry tests on the west shore of the lake. He talked of the survey and pulled instruments from a half-ton truck to illustrate. To a fisheries biologist the instruments are standard equipment but to the un- initiated they are intriguing. He pulled from the truck an Ekman dredge, a bucket-like mechanism with a long rope. The dredge is used by fishery biologists to deter- mine the kinds of plant and animal life at the lake bottom the fish can feed on. Many of the experiments scheduled for students during this and three other projects have been performed by fishery biologists but the pur- pose of the field trips, involv- ing 50 students in two programs renewable resource management and major conservation manage- ment is to give the students a practical knowledge on the use of equipment and the background to interpret fish and wildlife reports. Most of the students will assume positions as fish and wildlife officers or park of- ficers or with other conserva- tion organizations after graduating, says E. B. Cun- ningham, fishery resources course instructor and a former fishery biologist. The fishery resources course concentrates on techni- ques and procedures for the study of fresh water and fishery management which includes the biology of impor- tant Alberta and Canadian fishes. While the college supplies equipment and the projects are set by the instructor, students are expected to com- plete the projects on their own in their own lime, says Mr. Watt. "The thinking of the instruc- tor is if you can't organize the project now you can't do it in a few he said. mation to support our re- quest." A number of parents who are taking continuing educa- tion courses use the centre as do full-time students; faculty and staff. If all these parents left their children on the city-side, somebody would have to provide additional day-care, facilities for them over there because most of the present facilities are filled to capacity, he said. The day-care centre, on campus, has between 50 and 60 children enrolled in it each week and is supported by the university, the students' society and the parents. Each parent who has a child in the centre full-time is ex- pected to work a three-hour shift each week in the centre, in addition to the weekly enrolment fee they must pay. Mr. Mclnnis says the par- ticipation of the parents is needed to offset a limited operating budget. building flurry subsides West have Building activity in Lethbridge appears to slowed after the initial flurry, city hall reports. There are still only three houses under Construction on the west side at the moment, but building permit applications for several others are pending completion of plans, says Tom Band, in charge of West Lethbridge sales for the city. "We still hope there will be more this year, but it could be slowing because we're getting into the late Mr. Band said. Construction started on the first house in early September and it was quickly followed by two others after city hall began issuing west side building permits at the end of August. Mr. Band said the number of options taken on west side lots stands at 55. The city will put up se'ven homes, leaving 50 of the 112 lots in the stage one and two subdivisions still available.

Lowir Lull PHONE 327-2822 The Navy League requested before the start of the campaign one year ago, to be contributed by the United Way during a period of three years. United Way contributed the extra money for the first of three years from the 1972 campaign. Improvements must be made to the heating, wiring, bathroom and classroom facilities, says Leo Grudniski, president of the Navy League, or the building, which provides facilities for three groups and more than 100 youngsters, will "deter- iorate" further." Mr. Grudniski says the Navy League must accept part of the blame for not receiving the funds previously because "the Navy League was not on its toes to establish a maintenance budget over five which would be presented to the budget and allocations committee of the United Way. Mr. Linn says the allotment to the group is pending further negotiations with the Navy League. The league has not satisfied the United Way that it has taken every means available to raise money on its own, he says. to join union The University of Lethbridgc students voted in favor of joining the National Union of Students in a referen- dum Friday. N.U.S. replaced the Cana- dian Union of Students which was disbanded about three years ago when most univer- sities in the country withdrew their support of it because of a disagreement with its political stand. The N.U.S. will oppose government "cutting of funds" available to univer- sities and university students, deal with the pressing issues of student housing and un- employment and will es- tablish student charier flights, says John Mclnnis. student society council finance co- ordinator. The cost of joining the NU.S. is 30 cents per student. The Students Society Coun- cil will now be sending representatives to the N.U.S.'s conference in Ed- monton Thanksgiving weekend. The students also elected Khym Goslin" as the U of L students society council presi- dent Friday to replace Ken Bartlett who resigned la'st spring.
