Ph. 327-5454 handled remains to be seen. A series of meetings has been held between the city and eight local industries on ths subject and Tom Nutting, city manager was to present his report at tonight's meeting. However, Mr. Nutting has asked council to hold only a very brief discussion of the rates tonight and to call a spe- cial council meeting Thursday to analyse the entire matter in depth. The reason for the requested delay is that a brief from the eight industries has not yet been thoroughly analysed by the city administration. The brief reiterates the point made by industry that high sewage service charges would make extensions to local plants impossible and may cause ex- isting industry to locate, in more favorable locations. It also sets out a complicated formula for charges which is acceptable to industry. It is also proposed that the domestic charge be set at Purebred Cattle Sale On Nov. 20 The 20th annual Lethbridge Fall Purebred Cattle sale will be held Nov. 20 at the Left- bridge Exhibition Pavilion.

The bridge is shorter than the old steel bridge being re- placed. The new bridge is 440 feet long and has 36 feet of roadway with two feet of side- walk on each side. The new precast concrete girder bridge, is situated just east of the old bridge, and re- places the narrow, low steel bridge which has caused head- aches for truckers for years. George M o 1 y n e u x, con- struction superintendent for Rit- tinger Construction Ltd. of Med- icine Hat, said the finishing touches to the bridge will be ap- plied while the bridge is in use. Irrigation Shuts Off Main canals and laterals in the Lethbridge Northern Irri- gation District, St. Mary River Irrigation District and the Ta- ber Irrigation District will be officially closed Tuesday. Following a relatively dry year, and consequently one of considerable stress on canal structures, most of the districts will utilize the time after shut- off for repair and maintenance work on the systems. TED manager Ken Anderson said water will continue to run in some canals for a few days after the shut-off date. Water was shut off in the Eastern Irrigation District in :wo stages, Oct. 1 and Oct. 15. The earlier shut-off was to al- ow for major system repairs. IN HOSPITAL NOBLEFORD (HNS) Wil- liam Dykshoorn is a patient in he University Hospital at Ed- monton. This total monthly revenue of would mean a monthly deficit .of to the city, resulting in an additional 1.9 mills on the mill rate. A meeting has been sched- uled for next Monday .between tha city and industry to dis- cuss the proposal and work out a basis for the new sewer ser- vice charge. Also on the council agenda is a report from Mr. Nutting indi- cating a projected loss over the year of about as a di- rect, result of running city buses after ID p.m. Council decided to discon- tinue the after 10 service in April- then rescinded the deci- sion, asking at the time that a check be kept on the cost of the service. Council will also consider a request from Dr. Scott Angus, chairman of the Lethbridge and Region Mental Health Planning Council, for support for the planning council's re- cent decision to press for in- creased local services for men- tal patients. Sympathy Expressed The Herald was asked Sun- day to communicate American sympathy to Canadians grievec by the news from Quebec James J.-Flaherty, past presi- dent of the Montana Chamber of Commerce and chairman of the Canadian-American sec- tion of the Great Falls cham- ber, telephoned to express un- derstanding for the torment in which Canada finds herself, and hope that Canadian unity, democracy and security wUi not be seriously challenged. Ministers Tied Up The official opening of the million dehydrated potato plant at Vauxhall will take place Thursday at 2 p.m. Due to a recent chain of events in Quebec, officials of the plant feel it is doubtful that either Jean Marchand, federal minister of regional and eco- nomic expansion or H. A. Ol- son, federal minister of agri- culture, will attend the open- ing, but it is possible that Sen- ator Earl Hastings will. Premier Harry Strom, Kay Ratzlaff, Alberta minister of industry and tourism, Ray Speaker, Alberta minister of social development and Henry Ruste, Alberta minister of agri- culture, will attsrei the opening.

A random on-the-street inter- view this morning suggested a polarization of thought from Lstlibridge citizens, one of hor- ror and disbelief at the actions of the Front de Liberation du Quebec and one of strong back- ing for Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau in his strong-line ac- tions. Henry Postman said the gov- ernment has done what ,it rightly should have at this time. "I'm mighty happy about Trudeau's stand, one which has projected a new image for him and his government. 'I think all Canadians ap- preciated the calm, forceful atmosphere be projected, espe- cially when he announced the drastic measures of invoking the War Act." Larry Kirkpatrick, a landed U.S. citizen living in Leth- bridge, said the public must read between the lines to get the true picture. "We don't know all the reasons for in- voking the War Act but what other measures could the gov- ernment take? "This js a scary situation and it seems the 'only way to com- bat the threat of the terrorists. We must trust that Trudeau is acting responsibly. Only time will tell." Both Mr. Postman and Mr. Kirkpatrick suggested the gov- ernment must go as far as it can to save Mr. Cross the British diplomat to Canada, still held captive but still hold the reigns. "If the 'government lets blackmail dictate the whims of the terrorist group, there will be no end to the trouble." Another man said he be- lieves the government has to do more. "The FLQ is anti-gov- ernment and anti-everything." He suggested the government hasnt gone far enough, even with the War Act. 'We have a good country here, and we can't let anything like this hap- pen to spoil it." A woman on her way to work said the whole situation is ter- rible. She felt Prime Minister Trudeau took the only stand he could. 'He sure changed my opinion of himself." Agnes .Mihalik sugested the kidnapping and murder of Pierre Laporte was a reper- cussion of the U.S. assassina- tions of Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy. "Terrorist groups in the U.S. killed, why not the FLQ in Mr. Cross? "I think he is already dead." Bev Lilja said she feels Mice most other Canadians the FLQ are a bunch of dummies. 'It is horrible what has hap- pened. I didn't think it would come to this. The government has done everything it could and I agree with all the ac- has won a lot of votes with his strong-line action." Harold Neidig of Cranbrook felt the whole situation is a pretty stinking deal. "They took the army in and now they should leave it in there until this whole situation is cleared up. "I don't hold too much hope for Mr. Cross." Myron Hirsche said the gov- ernment invoked War Act was unnecessary. termed it too drastic. government shouldn't He "The give in and it was right in taking such a strong stand, ex- cept for the War Act. J. W. Moran is backing the government in all its actions. "What more can a person do? We must go along with the government and hope the situa- tion is cleared up real soon. 'What I think of the FLQ you couldn't quote. It is a diffi- cult situation at best. Severe ac- tion by the government after this is settled is called for. The authorities haven't found tions. Prime Minister Trudeau them (FLQ) yet. They are like Gundlock's Views rats, they have lots of holes to hide in. "Perhaps as a result of this matter, there wil be a stiffen- ing across the board. Capital punishment should never have been taken out of the law books and now it should definitely be returned." Mary Or.ofrychuk and Joan Johnson feel the outcome of the situation will be a unifying force for Canada. Both women said they have changed their minds about Prime Minister Trudeau, suggesting he is the best man for the situation. 'His French background may help him understand some of the actions. A young pirl suggested the whole situation is stupid. "It's mental the actions of the FLQ. They should know they can't get away with actions like tlCs in a democraic country." On another front, border checks, instituted at the re- quest of the RCMP to assist in tracking clown members of the FLQ, have resulted in no ar- rests or seizures of weapons at either the Coutts or Carway ports of entry. Laporte Killers Animals' Lethbridge MP Deane Gund- lock said this morning the mur- derers of Quebec Labor Min- ister Pierre Laporte were "ani- mals who have divorced them- selves from the human race." Mr. Gundlock said if Quebec, acting through the normal channels of democracy, wishes to separate from the rest of Canada, it should have that right, but separation "by force" was not the answer. The Progressive Conserva- tive MP has suffered a back ailment for the past month and has remained in Lethbridge during the recent dramatic Paper Plans Distribution The University of Lethbridge student newspaper, The Mel- iorist, will be distributed as planned, even though it carries a front-page story containing what has been called the "Mani- festo of the Front De Libera- tion Quebecois." The newspaper was with- drawn from the campus by the students early Friday morn- ing, following receipt of news that the federal government had invoked the War Measures Act and banned any publication of FLQ philosophies. Meliorist editor Barry Poffen- roth immediately contacted Al- berta Attorney-General Edgar Gerhart for legal advice, and also the U of L students' society council solicitor. Mr. Gerhart has. not com- mented, but a spokesman in his office offered the personal opinion that the provincial de- partment would not have juris- dcion or authority to or not permit the news- paper's publication. The article it contains is a simple summary of FLQ ob- jectives and plans, without com- ment, and was run in most stu- dent newspapers in Canada prior to the federal govern- ment's orders. Since the Meliorist had been printed before the War Mea- sures Act came into effect, the paper's lawyer said it would be legal to distribute it. Canadian University Press an association of most Cana- dian student newspapers spent most of the weekend checking reports it had received that Mr. Poffenroth was in jail for contravening the govern- ment order, and apparently other universities had also re- ceived the same reports. Mr. Poffenroth, however, says he has not even seen a police- man since Friday. events in Montreal and Ottawa. He said he expected to return to the capital in a couple of days. Mr. Gundlock, who had met Mr. Laporte at a couple of Montreal receptions, said he was one of the most outstand- ing men in Quebec politics. His death would make him "mo.e or less a martyr" to the cause of Canadian unity. Mr. Gundlock suggested "90 ppr cent of disturbances by the Front de Liberation du Quebec (responsible for Mr. Laporte's kidnapping murder and the kidnapping of British diplomat James Cross) are engineered by foreign born or foreign- trained members. "They taks advantage of us through student exchanges and the Company of Young Canadians, using these meth- ods to further their cause." He said he agreed with the federal government's imposi- tion late last week of the War Measures Act, but "it should have been used earlier." However, Parliament should have a bill which would cope with the situation without granting the sweeping powers of the War Act. "I car. never get out of my mind how Japanese-Canadians were treated, and unnecessar- ily so, during the Second World War" under the War Measures Act. Mr. Gundlock said he was "surprised" that the Montreal police, RCMP and the armed forces couldn't find the kidnap- pers. He said it seemed strange that no one had noticed the green car used in Mr. La- porte's kidnapping and in which his body was found Sat- urday night.
