County bylaw said unenforceable Vacant road allowances may be OK for hunting Other side of the story Student Council members discuss the campus newspaper. U of L students satisfied in newspaper affair story The discussion was heated at times and the questions probing but when the general meeting of University of Lethbridge students dis- persed, most appeared to have their concerns satisfied. The meeting was called by the U of L students council to answer any questions concerned students had about a recent budget meeting that resulted in their student new- spaper editor and staff resign- ing to protest budget cuts Daniele deVermer resigned as Mehonst editor because she saw the budget cut as an attempt by the student council to control the ditorial content. She felt council disapproved of its change of format. The format was changed from a politically left-wing to a non-political cultural publication The student council explain- ed to the meeting that it sub- stantially reduced the budget proposed by the Meliorist staff this year but still left the newspaper with a budget that provides the newspaper with more funds than it operated on last year. This year's approved budget provided the Meliorist with an increase of S340 over the 1973-74 budget. In response to a question from the floor, the student council claimed it was only questioning Miss deVermer about the newspaper budget when she suddenly walked out of a student council meeting earlier this month Later that same day she resigned The council also claims dis- cussions during its meeting Miss deVermer were restricted to the budgetary concerns The sluden] council has a C> in cUecS that prevents it from becoming involved in the editorial policy of the new- spaper and it maintains that the policy was honored during the budgetary meeting, students were told. The resignation of Miss deVermer and her staff brought an abrupt halt to the presses and last week's edi- tion of the Meliorist was not published Monday. Darryl Ross, student coun- cil president, put out a plea at the gathering for students interested in working for the Meliorist to attend a meeting. toda> at the Meliorist office. if an adequate number of students are interested, they will be asked to elect an editor A field worker with the Canadian University Press arrived on campus Thursday to help the new staff of the Meliorist organize and publish the weekly newspaper. Cam Beck, a trouble shooter for the univeristy press problems said in an interview he hopes to assist the students with the organization of a newspaper staff, show them how to write a news story and do research and teach them how to prepare the newspaper pages for printing Lethbridge man to help retarded in Nova Scotia A County of Lethbridge bylaw banning hunting on county roads has drawn fire from the Alberta Fish and Game Association. Joe Balla, a past president of the association, has disputed the legality of the county's bylaw, claiming road allowances are "where the bulk of hunters go'" in pursuit of game birds. He said in a Herald interview that "hunters are blamed for the irresponsibility of other people." He said the county does not have the power to pass the bylaw approved Wednesday by county council. The county's bylaw cites section 152 (d) of the Municipal Government Act authorizing the county "to pass bylaws prohibiting the discharge of guns or firearms in any specified part or parts of the municipality This section, claims a provincial fish and wildlife official, was rescinded earlier this year by Bill 30, passed by the provincial government during the spring session of the legislature. Bill 30. an amendment to the Wildlife Act, says no one shall shoot on or over any road unless he is shooting game birds with a shotgun and a valid hunting licence. Bill 30 amends section 152 (d) of the Municipal Government Act and provides that the County of Lethbridge shooting bylaw is legal only after approvals have been granted by the ministers of municipal affairs and land and forests. The fish and wildlife official told The Herald that the new legislation allowing shooting on roads is intended to eliminate possible nuisances caused by indiscriminate shooting and "create a better atmosphere between farmers and hunters." Fish and game association official Balla said the county's bylaw is illegal and unenforceable. He conceded that "it may take a test case" to determine the legality of the county's bylaw. Under provincial game laws, the season on ducks opened Thursday. Resident hunters can go after partridge Sept. 24 and pheasant Oct. 11.

They're still not up, and now the city says it's likely they won't be installed until next May. "it involves installation of goose neck type steel poles and our Calgary supplier is quoting a delivery date of May, a spokesman in the engineering department said. The length- delivery time for steel materials will also hold up installation of the same type of poles for the "pedestrian corridors" for the city, the spokesman added. Five such corridors, with flashing yellov- lights and overhead 20 m.p.h. signs are planned initially, mostly to replace the flashing red signals now in use. City council voted 6-2 in favor of installing traffic lights at 13th Street and 2nd Avenue N. last Dec. 3, overruling the advice of its own engineering department which said lights there and at 2nd A Avenue would stall orderly traffic flow. A 1.000 name petition sup- porting installation of the 2nd Avenue lights went to council- Bruce Milliken and Mike Powell; and newcomers Cecil N. London and Donald G. Wmdrum They will take of- fice at the Oct. 21 organizational meeting. At Champion, Richard Brown filed nomination papers Thursday Two more candidates are needed to fill the village council.

'Dodgers not crossing border here By MICHAEL ROGERS Herald Staff Writer Five days have passed since United States President Ford's announcement of con- ditional "amnesty" for draft resisters and deserters, but it appears no young Americans have crossed the Alberta border into the United States. Creed Davis, officer in charge of U.S. immigration at Sweetgrass, Mont., said Thursday no draft resisters or military deserters have cross- ed the border yet 'I would think there would have been at least some by now. There are some in Calgary and Edmonton, I Mr. Davis said. "They don't seem to be interested, I suppose. It's hard to he added. Mr Davis said he thinks there will be "a few" going back to the U.S. He said when a draft resister or deserter does cross the border "he is not arrested, but is informed of the con- ditions of President Ford's amnesty and given an address in his home town or within the area he is destined to report to" Then they are let go and they head for home. Mr. Davis said. "If there is a warrant for an individual's arrest for some other offence, however, he is held until the proper authorities are contacted." he added. A check at the Carway-Post of Peigan border crossing revealed no draft resisters or deserters crossing there to date MIKE HANZEL Extrai :prEMt South ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC SrtWttWl ZHSftS J Phona32t-4MS INSURANCE HOWE Can Sara You S S Monay S SEE US SOOWt fORSTCR 46CHCY 708 3rd.
