However, the U of L paper's publication date was Friday, Oct. 16 just after the fed- eral government's official in- vocation of the War Measures Act and the ban of all FLQ position publication. The Meliorist staff planned to distribute the paper anyhow on Tuesday, following verbal indications from both the Al- berta attorney-general's de- partment and then- own legal advisers that there was little likelihood of any action if it was distributed. The reasoning was that it had been planned and printed before the War Measures Act's proclamation. Then Mr. Poffenroth was visited on campus by City Po- lice Inspector R. D. Michel- son, who told them that under War Measures Act public order regulations which says it is illegal to communicate statements on behalf of an un- lawful organization, that he would be forced to take action if the paper were distributed. Mr. Poffenroth took the mat- ter to the U of L students' so- ciety council, which told him it would support distribution so long as he could assure the council it would be within the federal law. Mr. Poffenroth never did re- ceive official word from the at- City Woman Attends East Consumer Meet Mrs. A. A.

The University of Calgary newpaper, for example, re- portedly printed extra copies of the issue with FIXJ information, for off-campus distribution this week. Shortly after midnight, Mr Poffenroth received a tele- phone call from U of L arts and science dean, Dr. Owen Holmes, officially ordering him not to distribute the paper. The call was followed by a letter from Dr. Holmes, stating in part that if the paper were distributed, any students in- volved wrail'l be immediately suspended from the university. Dr. Holmes was acting as senior U of L administration official (in the temporary ab- sence of both President Dr. Sam Smith and Vice-President Dr. Bill Beckel) in concern over publication of FLQ mater- ial under the name of the uni- versity. This morning Dr. Beckel met with Dr. Holmes and Dr. Rus- sell Leskiw, dean of education, to further consider the conflict, but said he would make no statement until Wednesday when he has had a chance to consider all implications more fully. Neither Mr. Poffenroth nor Rehin Dann, students' society council president, were avail- able for comment this morning due to class commitments. The several hundred existing copies of the newspaper are currently locked up in the sto dents' society council offices. R. AKROYD LTD PLUMBING-HEATING and GASFITTING 2634 21st Ave. S.

The Lethbridge hearing will deal primarily with the CP cases but persons wishing to make representations on the CNR application will also be heard. Lethbridge Chamber of Com- merce Manager Wilf Bowns said the public hearing will be discussed at the chamber coun- cil meeting Wednesday. Steve Kotch, president of Northern Bus lines Ltd., said his firm will make representa- tion to the commission for addi- tional service by his company. City council Monday voted to support the submission by Northern to the Highway Traf- fic Board for luxury non-stop service between Lethbridge and various points in Alberta and B.C. Mr. Kotch indicated some de- cision on the matter might be forthcoming early in the new year.

Bus Runs To Continue Costly After 10 Service By HERB JOHNSON Herald City Hall Reporter City buses will continue to run after 10 p.m., at least until the matter has been discussed by the budget committee in considering the 1971 spending. City council voted Monday to refer the matter to the budget committee, .following a report from Tom Nutting, city man- ager, showing projected losses to the transit system for the year of if the service is continued. Some aldermen felt the ser- vice should be cut, since it was obvious from the city man- ager's report that few pas- sengers had been carried in the five months covered in the sur- vey. Sewage Problems Alderman Vaughan Hem- broff said the fact the service has not been used indicates that cutting it would be a valid decision. "Unless the public wants to use it, there's no point in con- tinuing Aid. Rex Little said. Aid. Vera Ferguson, reiteratr ing a stand she has taken in previous discussions on the transit system, said she was opposed to cutting ths service on the grounds council still hasn't "hammered out" an over-all policy for the transit system. "It all goes back to what we expect our transit system should she said. Several aldermen suggested there might be some provision made for people wanting to UM the buses alter such things as concerts, if service were to cut off after 10 p.m. Aid. Joe Balla said it was the senior citizens who would be hurt the most by a 10 p.m. cut off. Council decided April 6 to discontinue the service after 10 o'clock and then rescinded this decision April 20, requesting that time that a check be kept on the number of passengers using the late night service. The 1970 transit system bud- get, currently in the red, was based on the service stop- ping at 10 p.m. City buses now leave the downtown area at finish- ing their final runs at mid- night. City Seeks Cabinet Meeting A meeting with the provin- cial cabinet is. to be requested to discuss secondary sewage treatment facilities, city co cit decided Monday. The exact nature of the meet- ing was not spelled out. How- ever, Alderman Jim Anderson, who moved that the meeting be sought, said he felt it was coun. oil's function to "pave ths way" for other segments of the com- munity to make representation to the cabinet regarding sew- age treatment facilities. Although no reference was made to financial difficulties, the city has had problems fi- nancing the facilities, cost of which will run to million. A date for the meeting is to be set as quickly as possible. It was suggested it might be possible to have it near the middle of November. Council also held a closed session before the regular meeting, at which problems re- Riverbottom Study Nears Completion The final draft of a study of recreation in the riverbottom area of Lethbridge .should be ready by the end of the month, Tom Nutting, city manager, told city council. A rough drsft of the report was finished early in Septem- ber by Neil J. Andrew, a con- sultant for the parks and rec- reation department. Mr. Andrew, has since return- ed to the United States to con- tinue his university studies and the report is being completed as revised sections are re- ceived from him. The study is designed to plan for optimum use of the river valley for various types of rec- reation. COMPLETE CARPET AND LINOLEUM INSTALLATION HAMILTON'S FLOOR COVERING LTD. 909 3rd Ave. S.

Mayor Andy Anderson said following the closed session the city would be presenting a brief to local industries within the week in reply to a proposal presented to the city by the firms regarding sewage service charges. The industry, brief, presented by eight firms that could be bearing the brunt of possible increases hi sewage rates be- cause of the cost of the new secondary sewage plant, is the firms' proposal for the equit- able distribution of charges. It, and the city's counter- proposal, will likely be made public in a week or so, the mayor said. Mayor Anderson also said a public meeting on possible changes in sewage rates had been tentatively set for Nov. 9. Keho Fish Salvage Plan Meets With Little Interest The fish salvage operation which was to have begun Oct. 17 at Keho Lake, 20 miles northwest of Lethbridge, has met with little interest. According to fish and wild- life officials, the mud flats which surround the lake have discouraged fishermen, and it is thought they will wait until the mud crusts over before at- tempting the netting opera- tions. The salvage idea came about after water mains into the lake were shut off by the Lethbridge Northern Irrigation District to enable repair work to be done on irrigation structures. The deepest water level in the lake is estimated to be five feet, compared with the normal depth of about 14 feet. Wildlife officials felt the fish would be endangered when tha lake freezes over this winter. Only 23 permits have been if- sued so far.
