Chamber member Don Dalke told the regular meet- ing of the chamber that Ag Expo is no longer a figment of anyone's imagination. Compared to the seed fair last year which attracted people, attendance at Ag Expo last week was he said. Budget figures aren't all in, but the event broke even or came very close to it, Mr. Dalke added. He said a new committee is already being formed to organize. a larger committee to do a bigger and better job next year. In calling for greater busi- ness involvement, Mr. Dalke said Lethbridgee is the agri- cultural centre of Canada and should be promoted as such.

Claiming a cure rate of be- tween 40 and 80 per cent, Mr. Opheim said Teen Challenge centres have saved North. American governments "thou- sands of dollars" when costs of other anti-addiction pro- grams and treatment are as- sessed beside Teen Challenge program. "I regret that in the past Teen Challenge has neglected proper attention to the physi- cal rehabilitation of former Mr. Opheim said. "We realize now we must do something for the body. If we could find a farm in South- ern Alberta, we would move some of the young people out there where God intends them to be, away from further temptation." Mr. Opheim attributed the denise of religious belief and practice as being a root cause behind drug addiction. "We don't so much need education about drug he said. "But we do need more love and care by par- ents. Children are given a tele- vision set as a babysitter, when adults should be giving of themselves." The audience included a large number of high school students. Whenever an oppor- tunity for questions arose, several of these young people would attempt to give reli- gious testimony. "These young people be- come the greatest missionar- ies to other Mr. Opheim said. "They are our hey workers.

Lower 7lh Street Shopping Mall Lethbridge, Alberta (403) 328-7411 HOME AND OFFICE SAFES March traffic accident count dropped 48 The number of traffic ac- cidents occurring in the city declined in March to 170, compared with 218 accidents reported in February, accord- ing to the March statistical review released Wednesday by city police. The review also shows a "marked decrease" in the number of accidents in this past March compared to March of 1972. In March of 1972, 286 traffic mishaps were investigated by police. These decreases are partly attributed to the city police policy of "24-hour, or road- side, suspensions." Under the Highway Traffic Act, a driver suspected of in- toxication may have his lic- ence suspended for a 24-hour period, without a charge being laid. "We are hopeful that our policy is having the de- sired effect of taking the drinking driver off the high- way before an accident oc- Insp. Bill West says in the report. There were 49 roadside suspensions in March, bring- ing the total for the year to 77. Police had previously been cautious in crediting the de- crease in accidents to the 24- hour suspension program as they felt the good weather may have been responsible for the decline. However, figures released by the Alberta Safety Coun- cil show an increase in traf- fic accidents across the prov- ince of 15 per cent, compar- ed with the same period last year. The council attributues the increase to the "exception- ally mild weather." Forty-four people were In- jured in traffic accidents in March, 22 of them drivers. Total property damage in March is estimated at about Of the 170 accidents, 130 oc- curred on the south side, and 40 on the north. Insp. West attributed this 10 a larger population and more traffic on the city's south side. Statistics also show that most traffic accidents in March occurred from noon to midnight. This is mainly due, Insp. West said, to a greater volume of traffic and more drinking drivers on the road. There were no crimes of violence committed in Leth- bridge during March, with over half the crimes coming in the theft under cate- gory. One-third of thefts under involved bicycles, and of bikes stolen in March, 38 have been recovered.
