RMiltont 562-2149 THE LETHBRIDGE SAFE WATER COMMITTEE ON GUARD! After 18 years of operation The Lethbridge Safe Water Committee remains steadfast on the fluorida- tion issue. We believe the earth's water belongs to all man- kind, is an integral of all life and that it is the right of every individual to consume water- free of chemicals except those used for the purpose of water purification to protect the public against con- tagious disease. We believe it is questionable when the pro- ponents imply that they have "factual that shows fluorides are safe and beneficial for everyone regardless of age or health status yet fail to produce even when S 100.000 has been offered. We believe it is wrong to promote a program such as fluoridation and convey the impression that all doctors and dentists approve, when we know there are thousands of reputable physicians and dentists warning against it. We think it is morally wrong to exchange one's own doctor for water works employees who become MED3C1NE MEN Many of these shudder at Ihe thought of adding to a water supply. We believe it should be considered a crime to force a drug on another person when that person harms no one else by wishing to refrain. Let be known that the Safe Water Committee is sick and tired of the constant push and harrass- ment by the self-styled experts the BIG BROTHER type who are invading our society at an ever-in- creasing rate telling the citizens what medicines they MUST consume CITIZENS OF LETHBRIOGE We say FJuoTide in measured doses in tablet and drop form, under the supervision of Ihe famriJy doctor YES.

Lethbridge Safe Water Committee 920 2nd Avenue A North Phont 327-7142 Overspending may cost Cranbrook area CRANBROOK (Special) Over expenditure of this year's welfare budget by the B.C. government could cost Cranbrook taxpayers up to The estimate is based on a recent statement by Human Resources Minister Norman Levi that the over-expenditure in the department will cost municipalities million, not the million originally estimated when Premier David Barrett announced a million over expenditure to the annual convention of the Union of B.C. Municipalities at Vernon recently. The City of Cranbrook budget for welfare in 1974 is That was based on a levy of per capita per month to the end of March and 85 cents per capita per month for the balance of the year. The figures are based on the population figure of the last national census. City treasurer Daryl Bot- torff made a calculation based on the original announcement which reported that the department of human resources expenditure would be million rather than the million budgeted. That is a 38 per cent increase. Mr. Levi's statement in- dicates that the municipal share of the overspending will be just over half of million. Premier Barrett attributed the mistake to a calculating error. He called it honest mistake." Mr. Levi says the calculating error applies to only million of the total, that dealing with socia assistance. Mr Bottorff suggests tha the provincial governmen may allow municipalities to pay their extra amount nex year, so that they may budge for the over-expenditure Both Cranbrook anc Kimberley supported a mo- tion passed at the UBC1V convention that municipalities, not share the over- expenditure but the resolutioi has to be regarded as a public protest. They can, under the municipal act, be "forced to pay.
