The new $16.5 million University of Lethbridge campus is rapidly taking shape across the river from the city. The 909-foot-long academic and residence building which stretches from the right hand side of the picture to a point about a third of the way from the right, is to be finished for occu pation by fall of 1971. In the bottom left hand corner is the Bordignon Concrete pre fabrication plant, where all of the pre-fab, stressed beams and wall cladding panels are being made. Surrounding the plant are the parking lots to be used by all university students, faculty and administration when the U of L opens. The lots are up to 1,500 feet from the classroom building - and there will be no lots closer in. The present access road for people interested in watching construction, is to the extreme left; eventually it will be the road on the right. -Photo By Walter Kerber Police President Is Fired Constable Mike A. Clandfield, president of the Lethbridge City Police Association, was fired Wednesday for a violation of the rules and regulations governing the city police force. Constable Clandfield owns a shuffleboard business in the city and last June, bought a hotel in Grassy Lake contravening the rules and regulations stating a member of the city police force can not have outside interests. When he took possession of the hotel, he applied for a liquor licence. The rules and regulations also state a member of the city police force can not hold a liquor licence. He was suspended Oct. 1 and at a hearing before the city police commission Wednesday, he was released from the force. Millar J. Arnold, city police commission chairman said this morning he had no comment on the issue. "The six - man commission is going to let things sit." Constable Marvin I meson, vice - president of the police association said the men on the force were upset about the firing, feeling the decision could have been held off until arbitration talks between the police association and the city police commission were settled. "The firing of Constable Clandfield has to affect the arbitration talks because Constable Clandfield had been working closely with the police association lawyer," said Constable Imeson. Many Newcomers Make It In Municipal Voting Drug Arrest RCMP report Michael Charles Fellers, 20, of Buffalo, Wyoming was arrested at Coutts Wednesday and charged with possession of a narcotic. A small amount of marijuana was involved.
