CROSS X, Your Franchisee1 Dealer for Nikon, Zcisi Ikon, Mamiya, Bell and Howell, Braun and Kodak Darkroom Equipment and Supplies Sharp Frost Sets New Lows Falling temperatures S a 11- day resulted in record low temperatures Monday morning in seven Alberta centers. Lethbridge tied an all-time low temperature record for the day set in 1909 when the mer- cury dipped to 27 degrees. Pin- dier Creek hit a record low of 13 degrees, nine degrees lower than the previous 1921 record, and Edson with 15 degress, broke a 1921 record of 21. Records were also broken at Banff, 14 degrees; Jasper 19; Red Deer, 19; Peace River, 26; and Grande Prairie 25. Calgary tied a 1807 record low of 20 and Medicine Hat ctied the previous record of 27. The forecast for southern Al- berta calls for a general warm, ing trend over the next few days, with some cloudy periods and a possibility of scattered rain showers. High temperatures Monday were forecast to reach 50-55 de- grees, dropping to about 30 overnight. The high tempera- ture Tuesday should be in the 60 degree area. Meanwhile, the unusually early cold snap has played havoc with outdoor plants in the city, and killed late season growth in all of the area's re- maining grain and oilseed crops. Plant scientists at the Leth- bridge Research Station say the cold spell is no real disaster Bridge Steel Has Arrived The steel for renovations to Lethbridge's 9th St. bridge, ex- pected in the city last month, is now here and preliminary fabrication work is under way. Some work, such as drilling boles in the'steel members, is required before actual work on the bridge itself Starts. The city engineering depart- ment advises that closure of the bridge will likely be inter- mittent, with the overpass closing and reopening from time to time. The work, being done by Bromley Mechanical Services of Medicine Hat at a cost of will add about five feet 'to the bridge's clearance.

The cairn is located on the junction of the Oldman and St. Mary Rivers, about four miles south of Lethbridge on Highway 5. The project was sponsored primarily by the federal gov- ernment's Historic sites ser- vice, and commemorates es- tablishment of the original Fort Whoop-Up in the 1850s. The cairn will, be located on property owned by rancher Frank Russell, at a point on the coulee bluffs overlooking Whoop-Up Coulee, part of the old Whoop-Up Trail, which was a major trading route from the western United States to the then-Northwest Territories of Canada. From the cairn, the flatlands below where the old fort was located can be seen, as well as much of the old Whoop-Up Trail and its ox-cart ruts, still visible after a century of Weathering.

Aldermen last week decidec o adjourn in order to be able o devote sufficient time to, dis- cussing the city's secondary icwage treatment facilities.

DRAFFIN'S DRUG STORE PRESCRIPTION CHEMISTS DOWNTOWN ROD 327-3279 DISPENSARY _ GEORGE _ Blood Indian Joins Police In Calgary The Blood Indian Reserve became the first Alberta re- serve to produce a police offi- cer for a major city in the province when Wilton Good- striker graduated from police training and joined the Calgary City Police Force. Mr. Goodstriker, 23, son of Rufus Goodstriker of Cardston, abandoned plans for a medical career' and joined 22 class- mates for the 10-week course. He hopes to set an important example to others of his race, and reactions so far from his Indian friends have been ex- pressions of pride. The training officer for the department said Mr. Goodstriker seem to be working very well on his new "beat" work. Mr. Goodstriker has a Grade 12 education plus uiie year of pre-mediial study and an ex- cellent record of athletic achievement. He boxed Golden Gloves, won the 1966 Tom Longboat trophy for outstanding Indian athlete in Alberta, and has been ac- tive in football, basketball and track.

[the latest directive from the provincial health department. Alderman Vaughan Hemb- roff said at last week's council meeting a major consideration was the equitable distribution of costs between industry and taxpayer. He pointed out that indus- try's taxes contributed signifi- cantly to city revenue, making the average citizen's taxes con- siderably lower. He said it might not be out of line to suggest that the pub- lic might be expected to con- tribute to increased sewage treatment costs in order to take some of the pressure off indus- try, thereby encouraging much- needed plants to locate and re- main in the city. Eight local processing indus- tries meanwhile have retained the services of Reid, Crowther and Partners Ltd. of Calgary, consulting engineers, to inves- tigate sewage treatment meth- ods. They are to meet this week with city engineers to talk over problems associated with sew- jage treatment and a new sew- age bylaw. A formal meeting between the city and local industries has been set for Oct. 5 in the Yates Centre.

Hancmaycr. eluded Saturday night and the j executive committee termed the most successful they've had. The Rotarians estimate more than people viewed the show for the three days it was in Lethbridge. Dr. Jerry Niwa, horse show committee chair- man, said a lot of people came to see the feature attraction of Den Weisen and Rohert Ward and their Perfeclo Horses, a top internationr' act. Entries were up by GO to 70 horses and the number of per- formance classes was expand- ed by five. Total number of classes including halter and performance was 105. Horse show entries came from Alberta, Saskatchewan, British Columbia, Idaho, Mon- tana and v.'-shington. Dr. Bob Hironaka, president of the East Lethbridge Rotary Club, said the success of the show was not only shown by the number of people who attended but the audiences were very ap- preciative which added to the performance of the horses. East Lethbridge Rotarians, the Lethbridge and District Ex- hibition board and other indivi- duals turned the Exhibition Pa- viEon into a real show ring, Dr. Hironaka said. Another element which made the show successful was the cal- ibre of judging. Joseph A. Van- orio of Pound Ridge, New York, is about the number one judge of horses in North America, Dr. Hironaka said.
