With a scoff and a chuckle, city council Monday gave no- tice it will not even consider re- placing existing angle parking lanes with the parallel variety. Hoots ot "sneak" and "junk" heralded the rejection which council accomplished by sim- ply filing a city engineer's re- port on the easiest way to wid- en ya street. Tho report came at the re- quest of Aid. Bastedo, who had questioned the engineering department's wisdom in tear- ing up a sidewalk on 5lh St. S. and replacing it without widen- ing the street to make four traf- fic lanes.

Emergency number rejected Installation of a 911 emer- gency number system for the city in the new fire department headquarters has been rejected for now by city council. A report on the operation of the system was filed by coun- cil Monday with aldermen un- convinced that the city needs it. Aid. Bill Kergan said the city Isn't big enough to warrant such a system, which would send all police, fire, and am- b u 1 a n c e emergency calls through one number.

Aid. Bill Kergan said the ser- vice provided by the Friend- ship Centre is a duplication of services offered by other orga- nizations.

Grants for the two organiza- tions were approved. A grant for the Com- munity Chest was not, how- ever. Aid. Cluck Chichester caid, "If the citizens won't cough up for the Community Chest on their own, we shouldn't be granting tax money for the same purpose." Irrigation agreement approved The city solicitor was Instruc- ted by city council Monday to prepare an agreement between he city and the Lethbridge Northern Irrigation District concerning irrigation water in [he new west side subdivision. The agremeont will see the city indemnify the LNID for claims from any flooding or seepage damage which might occur from either the West- bridge lake or an irrigation canal running through the sub- division to the University of Lelhbridge.

The 56 year old Waterloo Lakes area naturalist author was described in glowing terms by two city residents who nom- inated him before more than 500 cheering Liberal supporters al the Civic Sports Centre. A 'DOER' Bill Matheson, radio talk show host and unsuccessful Liberal candidate in Fort Mac- leod in 1963, described Mr. Rus- sell as "a modest wrangler and bronc buster, a native Leth- bridgian, a thinker and doer." In seconding the nomination, Joan WaterUeld, local televi- sion personality, called Mr. Russell "the Abe Lincoln of Al- berta." Otto Lang, minister of jus- lice, and H. A. Olson, minister of agriculture guesl speak- ers at the meeting urged del- egates to send Mr. Russell to Ottawa to join the "small team Liberal MPs from the West."

MAJOR ISSUES Mr. Boras said the two ma- jor issues in the election will be the "integrity Canada" and labor-management relations. Mr. Russell said "proper managemenl of the environ- ment" is the major issue.

H. A. Olson, minister of agri- culture, told more than 500 people who nominated Andy Russell as a Liberal candidate for the Oct. 30 federal election: "Here you are tonight selecting a man that could be a member from Western Canada that would help us rather than hind- er us He said the majority of West- ern MSs are Conservatives "that great block of Opposition members who stand In the way of everything that they think might make the Liberal gov ernment a little more popular in Western Canada." Otto Lang, minister of Justice and minister in charge of the Canadian Wheat Board, eddec lat since he and Mr. Olson vent to Ottawa in 1968, the Yudeau government has been nore understanding toward Vestern problems. He said wheat sales abroad have reached record levels, 'with understanding and assis- ance from our colleagues (fel- ow Liberal ministers) from every part of this country." In a news release earlier Mr. Lang said the opposition's last complaint, low grain prices, is disappearing. He said government policies had resulted in depriving the opposition of things to com- plain about and its last refuge was world prices, which were not set by Canada alone.
