Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 23, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE IETHBRIDCE HERALD Friday, Ottobtr 23, 1970 Four Studies Done City Needs More Water The Oldman River Regional Planning Commission is taking the stand that more water should be released from irri- gation reservoirs, despite oppo- sition from the St. Mary River Irrigation District. C. W. Chichester, a member of the ORRPC water resources committee that prepared the resolution calling for increased river flows, Friday reiterated ORRPC's position. He said more water was needed, espe- cially in the winter. As it was, he said, there was barely enough water to supply the demand for Lethbridge. One reason for the installation of the city's secondary sewage treatment plant was the fact that there was not enough wa- ter to carry away and dilute the city's sewage, he raid. SMRD's opposition to the ORRPC resolution is refuted, he said, hi four studies that have been ('one in the past two years. The resoltuion had been based on these studies, he said. Of the four studies three are concerned with pollution and minimum flows in rivers in Southern Alberta and were car- ried out by the departments of agriculture and health. The Briefs Are Sought UofL Senate Everyone in southern Alberta is being given the opportunity to submit their criticisms, rec- ommendations, compliments, complaints and other informa- tion briefs to the University of Lethbridge senate. The senate has advertised sev- eral times in southern Alberta newspapers during the last few weeks inviting the written sub- missions, and deadline for their receipt is Saturday. However, Jim Fishbourne, U of L community relations direc- tor and secretary to the senate, told The Herald that if he re- ceives verbal notification by tel- ephone during the next few days of intent to submit a brief, he will be willing to allow a few extra days for preparation. The senate will consider all material received at its regu- lar meeting Nov. 21, when dele- gations will also be received if they are approved beforehand, and advisers will be on hand to offer expert opinion on all dis- cussion topics. The senate invites such sub- missions once each year, acting under provisions of the Alberta Universities Act which in one part says the duties of the sen- ate include inquiring into any matters which might enhance the usefulness of the university: It may invite submissions from all interested parties, both within the university and from ths people of the province and it can also require univer- sity officials to provide it with whatever information or recom- mendations the senate deems necessary. Following discussion of all briefs received at its meeting, the university senate will com- pile programs for its own ac- tivities and recommendations to the U of L board of governors in any.areas it believes to be of importance to the university. fourth is a review of water utilization and suggested rev sions for the Oldman River done by Gordon Haugen, a bi logist with the fish and wildlif division of the department agriculture. According to the ORRPC n solution there are three rec ommendations contained in these four studies. One of these, which is by ths irrigation district, that flows in the Oldman, S Mary, Belly and Waterton Ri' ers be increased from the pre- sent legal minimum of 30 cu bic feet per second. The increases would be I 150 cfs for the St. Mary River 75 cfs for the Belly, 200 cfs for the Waterton and 75 cfs for to Oldman River. The flow in the Oldman River would be increased to 200 cl when a new reservoir, tin Three Rivers reservoir, ha been built. Also contained in the studie is a suggestion for better de- velopment of the recreation po tential of the reservoirs in th irrigation system. An SMRD brief opposing th ORRPC recommendations ha been sent to the provincial cab- inet and a meeting is bein sought with the government ti discuss the situation. tMRD's opnasition stem from the contention that th system is currently filling th needs called for by ORRP! and that there Is not encug ,in the rivers to allow for any substantial in crease without seriously de- I pleting the reservoirs. Sentence Suspended Robert McConville, 21, was given a two-year suspended sentence on a charge of posses- sion of marijuana when he ap- peared in magistrate's court Friday. In passing sentence, Magis- trate Lloyd Hudson said Mc- Conville must report to Det. Frank Bathgate once a month for supervision and can't leave the province without consent. He was also ordered to stay away from known drug users and is not to be found in the company of convicted drug users or traffickers.

Promotion For Conventions, Calgarians Of Top Priority The Travel and Convention Association, of Southern Alber- ta is giving top priority this year to convention and meeting promotion, Manager Frank S'mith said in announcing de- tails of forthcoming promotion plans. The plans were established al a recent meeting of the associ- ation's board of directors. A secretary will be added to the staff in order that senior counsellor Mrs. Kitty Dunlop, can undertake new responsibil- ities for promoting and ser- vicing meetings in Lethbridge and southern Alberta. Under his direction, Mr. Smith said, Mrs. Dunlop will assist meetings and conventions with hotel accommodation, reg- istration, special tours and whatever else is required by visitors. Another aspect of the promo- tion campaign will be large- scale advertising directed at the balf million potential visitors normally resident in the city of Calgary, Mr. Smith said. This campaign will be con- ducted as follows: four quarter- age ads in the Calgary Herald n May, June, July and August ntended to attract visitors for he weekend, for the day, or or longer trips to see the two dozen or more attractions not well known to them in southern Alberta. Another media, billboard ad- 'ertismg, will be employed in a downtown Calgary location for he summer months in order to reach both the Calgarian and heir visitors during this per- od, with a message that south- ern Alberta is an interesting )lace to visit. A new publication, Holiday Alberta, which will replace the provincial government's publi- ation, Alberta the Princess will carry'a full page :olor ad sponsored by the as- sociation. This new booklet will be on the newsstands soon after Jan: 1, 1971. The government is purchas- ng copies for distribu- ion outside Alberta in the Uni- ed States and the rest of Can- ada. The advertising campaign is designed to test its effective- ness in order that the associa- ion may consider broadening its effort in successive years, Mr. Smith said. A budget of J37.150 was struck by the board of directors for the fiscal year Oct. 1, 1970 to Sept. 30, 1971. Mr. Smith said this amount is in keeping with the association's attempt! to hold the line and at the same time provide more meaningful programs on behalf of associa- tion Drug Education To Be Studied The successes and failures of Odyssey House and a drug in- formation'and crWs centre for Lethbridge were tte main topics at a meeting of members of the Youth Services Coun- cil in Lethbridge Wednesday. The drug centre is in its twi- light stages in Lethbridge but it was proposed at the meeting a committee be set up to study the LeDain report on drugs and take action in respect to drug abuse in Lethbridge. Brian Shaw and Brian Brind- ley, directors of Odyssey House during the four months it was in operation in Lethbridge this summer, were appointed to in- vestigate what is being done in Lethbridge regarding drug edu- cation. Odyssey House was termed a success by tntose who were in- volved with it this summer. It housed 1173 persons during the summer. One of the main praises by Bayon Case Set Over Joan Agnes Bayon, charged with two counts of non capi- al murder, made a brief ap- pearance in magistrate's court ji Lethbridge Thursday and lad her case remanded until Oct. 30' for further investiga- tion. Miss Bayon, 24, a professional jabysitter, has been charged with the Sept. 2 death of two- ?ear old John William Cot- on, son of Mr. and Mrs. Wilf ton of Lethbridge and the March.23, 1967, death of five- month-old Andrew Green. the group was that Odyssey House brought together several interested agencies in Leth- bridge, all working in the same direction. Its failure to involve local youth in any meaningful way was termed the main failure of Odyssey House. The action group, 35 they call themselves, decided to set up programs for local youth which are not in conjunction with Odyssey House. Odyssey House is now being used as a co-operative for uni- versity students to live in. At the present time they have six university students, two college students and two local youths staying at the house. Several Lethbridge business- men were instrumental in get- ting the owner of the building to lower the rent for the stu- dents but on Dec. 15 the rent will go up to again. It is hoped eventually to get all university students staying at the house but at present it is partially empty and unless tte action group can find more students to stay there or find some other way of subsidizing the cost, they will lose the building.
