PHONE 328-7121 Now Arriving: THE NEW EUROPEAN FALL EYE FASHIONS for 1973 Lethbridge city council ,000 budgeted to seek Games By RICHARD BURKE Herald Staff Writer Although a selling job was un- necessary, Alderman Vera Fer- guson took on the task Monday as city council approved a 000 expenditure for preparation of southern Alberta's final bid lor the 1975 Winter Games. "The (Canada) Winter Games will do more to unify and excite this community than anything else in my AM. Fergus- on said.

Lethbridge is competing with Grande Prairie, Medicine Hat and Red Deer to host the games. If the southern Alberta bid is successful, volunteers will be involved in the preparations, Aid. Ferguson said. The final bid, which must be submitted by Nov. 15, 1972, will be professionally printed in French and English, she said. Quebec student exchange may become permanent A continuing student ex-1 change program between Lelh- bridge and Saint-Laurent, Que., will be considered with the 1973 budget. The subject came up at Mon- day's city council meeting when the aldermen agreed to spend this year for an exchange money for money, however. Since the university sessions have started, it is too late to exchange students. Instead, the City of Saint-Laurent will offer a scholarship to a stu- dent attending the University of Lethbridge. The City of Lefh- bridge, in turn, will offer a 200 schlarship to a student in St. Laurent to attend either the University of Quebec or the University of Montreal. Aldermen Vera Ferguson and Vaughan Hembroff opposed the sholarship for this year, be. cause it is only an exchange of money. Aid. Ferguson's motion to agree In principle to the schol- arship and to prepare a proper exchange program during bud. get discussions, was defeated. "It's too late this she said. "Someone who might have been eligible for the schol- arship could now be at another Institution." A majority of council appear- ed compelled to accept the re- ciprocal scholarships this year, however, because of the St. aurent city council's expres- ed commitment last week.

Liberal loss By GREG McINTYRE Herald Staff Writer Grant Notley, provincial New Democratic Party leader, pre- dicts there won't be an Alberta Liberal in Ottawa left after the Oct. 30 election. The 19 Alberta seats In the House of Commons are now held by 15 Conservatives and four Liberals. The Liberals In Alberta will be wiped out largely because of Prime Minister Trudeau's "if you don't like it, that's tough" attitude, and because "the gov- ernment still isn't listening to the said Mr. Notley. He said in an interview In Lethbridge Monday that the "in suf- Conservatives are also trouble" because they're fering from a severe case o! overconfidence." He said "the big question mark" is how much of the vote the NDP can capture, adding 'there is no doubt that we're going to vastly increase our percentage of the popular vote." Later Mr. Notley told a lunch- time audience at the University of Lethbridge that unjust loop- holes and concessions have been built into the tax system in favor of big corporations. He said Procter and Gamble Ltd., a multi-national corpora- tion, has received in I government subsidies for every job created at the company's new pulp mill at Grande Prair- ie. "And it's not as though they need he added. The annually budget of Proctor and Gamble is larger than that of the pro- vincial governments of Mani- toba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia combined, Eie said. A more equitable lax system is a major plank in the federal NDP platform, he said. Asked by a questioner about his view of the radical Waffle wing of the NDP, Mr. Notley said the Ontario NDP move to expel the Waffle was wrong.

The referral went with In- structions for the city manager to explain the reasons for the parking restictions to the res- idents. The residents, council suggested, could come back with alternative solutions. Alderman Dill Kergan was opposed to any parking restric- tions on the street: "It's not fair to the businessmen and res- idents just because thevc is a feud between a construction company and one resident." City Manager Tom Nutting said the area proposed for the two-hour parking limit is not the entire block, but liio south- ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC Schwartz Blctg. 222 5lh St. S.
