"The society can last for a certain length of time, but we must, find some solution for our financial he said. No definite plans have been made yet, he said, but a board meeting has been scheduled for Monday and some decision may be reached then on whether to approach the Unit- ed Appeal with a request for additional funds. Last year the society asked the United Appeal for of which it received to aid in meeting its total 1970 budget of It also has accumulated a bank loan of over the past five or six years. Recreation Meeting On Sunday The Lethbridge Parks and Recreation Commission _is sponsoring a meeting of all in- terested recreational and cul- tural groups in the city Sun- day at p.m. in Catholic Central High chool. The meeting will discuss local viewpoints on the direc- tion and scope of recreation in for a conference called for October in Edmon- ton by Youth Minister Gordon Taylor. All interested groups have been invited to send a repre- sentative to Sunday's meeting. Under discussion will be such topics as co-ordination of ef- forts in local recreation activi- ties, leadership, new pro- grams, use of school facilities and regional resources in rec- reation. Some money has been raised through memberships and spe- cial projects, but Dr. Harper said the society needed the it had requested from city council in order to bal- ance its 1970 budget. The society's estimate on how much it will need in the coming year was submitted to the United Appeal this spring and was made on the assump- tion that some money would be forthcoming from the city, as it has in past years. Grants to the society in re- cent years have been either or with the exception of last year when it was cut to Dr. Harper said no warning of city council's intention to re- fuse the grant was given; ex cept for last year's cut whicl in retrospect might be inter- preted as a warning. He saic that only on Tuesday, when the society was turned down, die he know what council's policy was with regard to the giving of grants. Alderman Jim Anderson saic at council meeting that he felt it was immoral for council to give grants to or- ganizations that had not been able to sustain themselves through voluntary contribu- tions through the United Ap- peal. He said if the people of Leth- bridge did not want to support groups through giving to the United Appeal, it was not right for council to arbitrarily turn around and give their tax money to these same organiza- tions. He was, he said, prepared to reconsider if it could be shown the situation was critical, but council voted down the request for a grant. Aid. Rex Little pointed out that the city was not really in a position to consider additional jrants for this year as all but of the money alloted for that purpose had been spent, The city's contingency fund, designed to meet special ex- penses, is also nearly de- pleted. Herbicide Not Harmful Says Parks Superintendent BUI Brown, parks and recre- ation department superinten- dent, said Friday he has no in- formation that the herbicide that was used on the Lakeview school ground last week was in any way harmful, provided it was used properly.

The school had been inform- ed, he said, that the grounds were to be sprayed with but not because of any poten- tial danger to the students. Ths matter had been brought up at Tuesday's meeting of city council by a local citizen, who questioned the use of what was termed a potentially dangerous chemical on the school grounds at a time when children would come into contact with it.

City School Patrols Back In Operation By STAN FRUET Herald Staff Writer The Alberta Motor Associa- tion sponsored school patrols are back on school comers again policing the crosswalks. Kids are unpredictable. That's why the school patrol was organized. The rush and the crowd when ;he school bell signals lunch ime or school's out for the day jams the crosswalk. The school >atrols go to work, helping to ceep the street crossing safe and orderly. This year there are five Leth- iridge schools participating in :he program which involves about 150 children, but the AMA is hoping more schools vill join. The schools are Assumption, Immanuel Christian, St. Pat- rick's, Central and Westminis- ;r. Children in the school patrol could win a patrolman of the month award or a particular school could win a banner ivhich is presented to the most mproved patrol during the month. Each month a rally will be held at the Paramount Theatre where the awards will be pre- sented. At the rally Uiere will be short talks by members of the Lethbridge police force anc AMA members to stress the im- portance of the patrols. Films will also be shown. The first rally will likely be held the last Saturday in Sep- tember or the first one in Oc- tober. Parents of the children in the school patrol are encour- aged to come to the rallies. To pick the patrolman of the month or the most improvec patrol, the children are watch- ed by the person hi charge al the school and the police make regular checks of the patrol areas. The patrolmen are judged on the manner in which they con- duct themselves, the way they handle the other children using the crosswalks, neatness and smartness. In addition to the monthly awards, annual awards are pre- sented to the patrolmen. In May, an annual school pa- trol rally is held in toe Para mount Theatre. Prior to this, the schools are notified and the patrol members are asked to write an essay on why they like the school patrol. One grand winner will be an- nounced and he or she will be It Seems That Everyone Is "DOING THEIR THING" These Days Why Not Do Yours, At: Jijlcinas A. E.

Warmer Weather Warming A slight warming trend should be in evidence for southern Albertans Sunday, as the cold arctic high pressure system which has dominated the area for the past few days moves rapidly south into the United States. Light snow flurries and brisk north winds Saturday kept tem- peratures in the 40-45 degree mark during the day, likely dropping to around 25 degrees tonight. Sunday temperatures should hover from 50-55 degrees dur- ing the day and from 30-35 at night. Friday's high and low tem- peratures were 40 degrees and 28 degrees. Total snow fall for the past three days is 2.7 inches along with three tenths of an inch of rain, giving a total precipita- tion figure of three fifths of an inch. MS Meeting September 16 Mrs. Edna La Forge of Ed- monton, "executive secretary of the Prairie division of the Multiple Sclerosis Society will speak here Wednesday Sept. from recent broiler dumping by Quebec. "The Alberta producers and buyers know the situation, and are not likely to condone the Quebec dumping." In a recent meeting of Al- berta Poultry Board with the B.C. Poultry Board, no conces- sions were made by the B.C. executive. "We are still shipping into B.C., said Mr. Effler, even though we are not supposed to be, and the Alberta board is currently checking into the legal aspects of the situation. "We are against any controls of this type and must continue to ship or B.C. will think it has won the battle." "Alberta may have another problem, if reports about On- tario imposing shipping restric- tions on Quebec are true. This action would bring increased pressure on Alberta producers, if .Quebec tries to unload prod- uce into the province at the cut rate of 16.5 cents." (Alber- ta producers are paid 19.5 to 20 cents per pound.)
