I was informed the dance, to be held in the Great FaOt Agriculture' BuMng, uouM be a really big bash. the building was a sight if you dared your eyes. I am cure there was no preparation of the buildag for the dance. Dust clouds swirled with every step. It wit hazardous moving among the numerous wagons and awarded table., especially with the almost noreusteat lighting. the majority of the youth in attendance locked higher than kitd and from snatches of cocversationi picked op ben and there, both boote and drugs were responsible. While we sat on benches scattered throughout the htO, not twice, but three times we were forced' to because of young persons vomiting near us. The ateoch it the building was becoming unbearable. Teens in clothes.which seemed ready to taU apart tat everywhere on the floor and the band was so terrible I won't even attempt to dojcribe its music, or dress. I was also told that there would be a restriction OB age. I could see over the beads of nearly every person then. I'm a abort person, so what does this say for the actual en- forcement of an age limit. I hive no grudge against young teens (often referied to at teeny-boppers) because everyone is young once, although a lot of people prolong Uls stage. The common comment after all this would be, where were the parents? Weil, didn't you know? Some of them were at.the door taking tickets. Tbe extent of making an almighty buck! I am among the first to say that we do have better than average teens in Lethbririge. Although the establish- ment may frown on long hair and hippie clothes, who can say they are wrong as long as they are clean? Someone recently said to me, "It seems the more rag- ged a person gets the 'neater' they think they are." This ragged style of dress certainly seems on the increase is Lethbridge. Tbe faculties for dances are good here. Even though there are large numbers of benches and chairs will still at on the floor. There is a difference though between here and Great Falls in that preparations are made, and no one is sitting in filth. Parents in Letbbridge will have to watch very doaely to be sure a situation like Lbe one in Great FaDs doesn't here. As to the drinking aspect, a local 15-year-old boy said that be recently attended a social where there was no booze. He said that although everyone had fun, he'felt funny in tint situation. SATO (Southern Alberta Teen Organization) has been sponsoring dances, for two age groups. -The one dance which I bad occasion to'attend was restricted for those 17. yean .and 17 year olds are getting smaller but I most say that there the majority aiendiog were under 17. I'll bet some weren't even teens at all, Letbbridge Community College dances also are limited to those 17 and over. Although older college students attend it is getting to be more and more a teeny-bopper haven. It is my opinion that the purpose of these dances is to provide eolertainment for the campus students and not to nuke money off the.small fry. Dances'promoted by CJOC Radio to my knowledge have never bad any age restriction.

It does seem to stretch a little far when the dances from midnight to 3 a.m. attract large numbers of the younger teem. I wonder if mofters might ever'wonder where their kids are? My excuses certainly would never get me in that late, or should I say early. This story of youth activity is brought nut again and again but when seen first hand, it brings it a little closer to heart. Tolerance Live and Let] Live is the memo of me 15th annual conference of the South- ern Alberta1 chapter of Al- coholics Anonymous being held in the city mis weekend. The conference opened Fii- day evening at the old Presby- terian Church Hall 10th Ave. and 17th St. S.
