The all-time high for September 29 was set in 1967 when the mercury climbed to 85 degrees. Sunny skies and gusting west erly winds will form the back- drop for typical autumn days today and Thursday as an ex- tensive high pressure area en- gulfs the district. Temperatures in the low 80's are expected in Lethbridge and district today, dropping into the low 40's overnight. Winds will be from the west at 25 miles an hcur. Slightly cooler weath- er is expected Thursday. The warm, dry weather has pushed the fire hazard up in the Waterton, Elairmore and Bow River forest reserves, but no outbreak of fires has been reported. Logging slash burn- ing is being carried out.

According to the staff at the city hall assessment office there is little they can do except con- tinue to watch the mail and hope their application is pro- cessed quickly. Chances are it will be, at least as far as city hall is con- cerned. Most of the applications are received in a flood near the June 30 deadline for penalty- free payment of taxes. Extra staff is hired and the entire office pitches in to get the applications processed and sent to the provincial govern- ment as quickly as possible. The job is usually accom plished in three weeks. So fa this year the city has sent 5 batches of 136 applications t Edmonton for processing, mos of them soon after the pa> ment deadline. Theoretically those person who apply first will have the form processed at city hall firs and will therefore be among U first to have the application a proved by the province. In actual practice, there ar several tilings that disturb the priorities established by the o der in which the application, are made. The applications are sorted a city hall according to the are of the city in which the horn is located. If the person respon sible for one particular are works more quickly than h co-workers, applications from that area may be sent to monton before those from an other area that were made ear lier. Other disruptions can occu in the provincial offices when the grants are approved.

He indicated the party hopes to name as close to 75 candi- dates as possible for the next election, expected by Mr. Pet- rasuk to be called for June or October, 1971.
