The programs would not be Introduced, however, until uni- versity administrators were convinced they would serve the students' needs. At some cam- puses, he said, graduate studies programs have been introduced to serve needs of the faculty, ignoring what the students want. At a meeting in Edmonton last Monday, Dr. Beckel said he told the Alberta government the U of L would want to intro- duce graduate programs "in the near thus giving its full notice of intent. He said that under existing monetary restraints and the current five-year financial pro- gram there was no possibil- ity of finding funds for U of L graduate programs. However, when the next five- year fiscal period and grant set- up is introduced in 1973, there is no reason that funds could not be included in it to allow the TJ of L a graduate faculty. Dr. Beckel said any TJ of L graduate programs propos e d would be reviewed first by a special graduate programs eval- uation committee which checks all such programs for existing graduate faculties at the Uni- versity of Alberta and Univer- sity of Calgary. Dr. Beckel, who is chairman of the committee, said this would assure the particular need of each program U of L faculty members want to see implemented, and make finding government funds for it much easier. The government would have final say over such programs. In the meantime, he said, the U of L planning committee, a subcommittee of the university board of governors, will draft a University Bus Service Thursday The city transit system will begin evening bus service to the University of Lethbridge and Lethbridge Community College campus Thursday.

Also tabled was the possible sale of a strip of land along the western edge of the prop- END OF THE will be no more fire calls answered from tha old No. 2 fire hall on 13th St. N. The hall, a part of the city, landscape since 1909, today fell vic- tim to the wrecking crews. Th fire department moved Saturday to the new No. 2 hall at 28th St. and 5th Ave. N. Several attempts had been made to move the hall to a new site and it as an historic landmark, but they all failed because of lack of funds.' The site will now become part of the Centre Village Mall, due to open early next month. Inquests Are Scheduled erty. Both arc needed for park- ing facilities. A representative for Shop- pers' World told council the company would builct and own the million hotel but tliat an international chain (whose name he was not at liberty to reveal) would be operating it. It was a condition of the agreement with the chain, he said, that the existing parking lot north of 4th Ave. be Joined to the hotel property by clos- ing 4lh Ave. He could not say what the reaction of the operating chain might be to the avenue's not being closed. Council earlier had heard a submission from a resident of the area that the avenue re- main open and had given assurance that the matter would DO given careful consid- eration before any decision was reached. There was also some ques- tion regarding the density stan- dards, which council recently voted not to change in the C8 zones along the Drive. Council was told that ths ho- tel would likely be within the requirements for a C8 zone (floor area not more than half the site area) but this would depend on the height of tha building, which had not yet been decided on. The inclusion of 4th Ave. in the site would also effect the amount of allowable floor area by increasing the site size. "The hotel, between 10 and 12 stories high, is to start con- struction Nov. 1, if approval is gained by that lime. Charter Policy To Be Clarified City council Tuesday voted to accept a finance committee recommendation that the city purchase a new school bus and lease another from the Dorothy Gocder School. Included in the recommenda- tion was a clause indicating that council clarify its position with regard to the transit sys- tem seeking other charters. The clause was a result of charges by Northern Bus Lines that the transit system's com- petition for charter business was hurting the company's fi- nancial position. Alderman C. W. Chichester asked when council intended to clarify its policy on this mat- ter, but no indication was given as to when this would be con- sidered. Aid. Chichester also said hs could not accept the view that buying another school bus would seriously affect North- ern's school bus operation. Northern has a contract with the city to provide some bus sen-ice to schools on a regular basis and Steve Ketch, North- ern president, has said cancel- lation of the contract could put him in a serious financial posi- tion. Aid. Chichester said his main concern was that the taxpayer come first and that he could not vote for any resolution that might increase the transit sys- tem's deficit. Both Aid. Rex Little and Oli Erdos, utilities director, said the acquisition of the school buses had no relationship to the question of possible competi- tion between the city and Northern for charter service. Revenue from charters and school buses amounted to 830 or 34 per cent of the total transit system revenue in 1969. Monday Meeting On Sewage Plant City council Tuesday dealt with several matters relating to the city's secondary sewage treatment plant, but adjourned until next Monday to allow time for further discussion on the matter. Wilf Bowns, general manager Golf Course Leasing Cleared The continuation of a July 16 inquest into the death of a 43- year-old Coaldale man, Eugene Jurcak, is scheduled for Sept. 22. Mr. Jurcak fell from a scaf- fold June 26 while working on the new shopping centre being built in north Lethbridge. The inquest was postponed because a witness, the pathol- ogist from Calgary who per- formed the autopsy on Mr. Jurcak, was not able to attend July 16. On Sept. 23 an inquest will be held into the July 10 death of Edward George Watson, 23, PRICE INCREASE AT NEW YORK FURS To help fight inflation we are determined to hold prices on our new iSize Dresses FREE ALTERATIONS Sizes to UVt in all the latest fall styles.

The Lethbridge public school board Tuesday was shown a memorandum of agreement be- tween the board, and tne school, its students and its par- ents' association, in which va- rious stipulations of operation are established. The school district will ini- tially buy the bus, and will in- directly own it and accept full and direct responsibility for it. The school, through a student fee assessment, will be respon- sible for the total purchase price, payable at two-thirds of the price this September and the remaining amount by the end of 1971. Operating costs will he shared according to the various uses the bus is put to: for time used as a school bus in mor- ning and afternoon, the school district will pay the costs (and related maintenance recovering the amount from the provincial government. For time the bus is used on field trips for WCHS students, some money is provided by the school district (as is done for all schools) and the remainder will be paid by the school and its students. The bus will be available in some circumstances to other schools, in which case a fee of 30 cents per mile plus the driver's salary will be charged to the other school. Surpluses in annual operation will be applied to the purchase of the bus or held as a replace- ment fund for a new bus in fu- ture. Deficits will be directly Policemen Required The city requires two police- nen.

The bus will be stored in the city transit garage, and drivers will be assigned by the transit system e x c e p t for field trips and other in-school uses, when a teacher with an "A-plus" li- cence will be allowed to drive. Since oilier schools are now expected to follow Churchill's lead, the school district plans to watch what happens closely, and the results will be analyzed at year's end. Another step toward a golf course and recreation centre for young people in Lethbridge was taken Tuesday when city council voted to have the city solicitor draw up the necessary documents for a lease on the land. The city solicitor will report to council after preparing the one-dollar-a-year lease on the land in North Lethbridge and other documents to allow ths city to receive charitable dona- itons on behalf of the Leth- bridge and District Youth Rec- reation Association, which is laying the groundwork for the proposed golf course. Reg Turner, principal of Winston Churchill High School, who originally brought the pro- posal before council this spring, was asked by Alderman Vera Ferguson if there was not a possibility that the city would some day be asked to take over the project if it should en- Grant Turned Down A request for a grant of 000 from the John Howard So- ciety of Lethbridge was turned down Tuesday by city council. Alderman Jim Anderson, who admitted that he had con- sistently fought the giving of grants to local organizations in order to encourage them to make a concerted effort to exist on funds from the Com- munity Chest, said he was will- ing to re-consider in this case if it could be shown the situation was critical. Others, including Aldermen Vaughan Hembroff and Joe Balla contended that council should be consistent with the policy Aid. Anderson had been attempting to establish. The motion to deny the re- quest passed by a 54 vote.

Mr. Turner assured her he was satisfied the necessary money would be available from local businessmen and private citizens and that he had al- ready received pledges of donations.

Officer To Be Hired City council Tuesday affirm- ed its intention to hire a re- search officer, but the func- tion and salary of the person hired will be re-evaluated by the city manager. The decision to accept a fi- nance committee recommenda- tion to that effect was reach- ed with no discussion. Referral of the matter to tie finance committee stemmed from objections to the hiring of the officer by Alderman Vera Ferguson. The original pro- posal was that lie should assist Bennis O'Connell, director of the Economic Development Commission.
