Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - April 17, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Friday, April 17, 1970 � U of L Concert Is Well-Balanced By HENRY WAACK The final concert of the 1969-70 University of Lethbridge Concert Series held at the Yates Memorial Centre Wednesday evening featured the University of Lethbridge Choir, directed by Lucien Need-bam, and four university students in piano solos. An excellent level of performance was maintained both by (he choir and the pianists. The well-balanced program was thoroughly enjoyed by perhaps the largest audience the series has. attracted to date. The choir sang works by Bach, Tschaikowsky, Bairstow, Schubert, Montgomery and El-gar. Mr. Needham has moulded together a choir that te very sensitive to musical shaping of Mosquitoes Escape DDT The mosquito - control program in Lethbridge, under the care and control of the Lethbridge Health Unit, will not be using DDT this year. Dr. A. A. Byrne of the Health Unit said today that the chemical malathibn will be used in the mosquito - control pfogram. This chemical, like most, is more expensive that DDT but is not too much more expensive, said Dr. Byrne. Red Deer recently announced that it would be using a chemical called baytex which is 10 times as expensive as DDT, even though smaller quantities are used. Dr. Byrne indicated it was difficult to estimate how less harmful than DDT the other chemical is, but he did say malathion did not have the persistence of DDT. Other chemical preparations will also be kept on standby. DDT was used last summer In the Lethbridge mosquito control program. BUSINESS JOTTINGS A mobile training laboratory, equipped to give instruction on Honeywell controls for residential heating systems will visit Lethbridge April 20 and 21 as part of a coast to coast working tour of Canada. In Lethbridge the lab will be stationed at the EkBancho Motel. The labs provide an opportunity for contractor and dealer service personnel to take up to five full-day courses on typical beating and water - heater control equipment phrases, a group that follows the composer's intentions closely. Choir members also have an excellent blend, but will need to work a little harder yet before they reach the ultimate in this respect. The soprano section has a tendency to sharpen at times and this was noticeably the case in What Is Our Life by Gibbons and a Bach work, There are some sopranos with fine individual voices who need to modify their tone to blend with the section. This difficulty was largely eliminated in the second half of the program and all seven selections were expertly performed. Louise Chapman gave a very capable performance as always in her role of accompanist. Altogether the choir performed in a musicianly and artistic manner. Piano soloist Joanne Prit-chard, played the Sarabande and Gigue from Bach's G minor English Suite. The Sarabande was carefully played with nicely calculated ornaments. It achieved the essential dignity, but the upper registers could sing more. The Gigue was neat and controlled, but would be more rhythmically alive taken at a little faster tempo. Miss Pritchard seemed a little tense, but had no reason to be. She is a very musical girl. Gordon Radford played a Debussy Prelude and a Brahms Intermezzo. This boy has a good deal of character in his playing. He. gets down into the piano well. I have never heard the Brahms played with quite the same degree of rubato, and yet to me he justified almost everything he did - a most interesting performance. Kathleen . Holt gave a fine performance of the Maiden and the Nightingale and the Bartok Sonatina. The first piece by Granados was poetic and. imaginative and will(be better yet with a little more flexibility. Miss Holt has exeltent fingers and following the slightly abbreviated second movement, the final movement really sparkled in the Sonatina. Linda Schmold played an Impromptu by Chopin and a Nocturne by Faure. These were beautifully phrased and controlled. She played with great warmth and style and achieved a fine singing tone, and has mastered the technique of half-pedalling. She walked the tight rope a couple of times in the Chopin, but successfully. The Faure Impromptu was the most mature individual performance of the evening. This pleasant evening of choral and piano music provided a fitting conclusion to this year's University Series.

Trudeau Phoned By Local Group Supporting Arctic Pollution Rule Pollution Control-Southern Alberta this morning telephoned Prime Minister Trudeau to inform him of its support for proposed Canadian legislation to protect the Arctic from pollution. "We wanted Mr. Trudeau to receive a telephone call supporting his outstanding attempt to preserve our Arctic environment, and to counteract in some manner the call he received earlier from President Nixon," a PC-SA spokesman said. "Canadian interest in the quality of our environment must not be influenced by pressures originating in the United States. "PC-SA urges all Canadians who are concerned about the preservation of the delicate environment to inform Mr, Trudeau and their MPs of their support for this legislation," the spokesman continued. "We would, like to point out. that mail sent to MPs in care Rose Yellow Feet Speaks To Students Today's Children Said Key To Indian-White Social Way By JIM WILSON Herald Education Writer It is the children of today-Indian and non - Indian - who will determine - how well Canadian native people will get along with one another in the future, Rose Yellow Feet told students at Lakeview Elementary School Thursday. New Dairy Queen Has Brazier Foods Another Lethbridge Dairy Queen Brazier Foods outlet is now open. The newest 516 13 St. North, is styled along the lines of Lethbridge's south-side Dairy Queen, one of the first brazier foods outlets in Alberta. As the name suggests, the .Dairy Queen Brazier specializes in brazier - cooked food. The menu includes the traditional soft ice-cream treats including cones, shakes and sundaes as well as the new brazier foods. Brazier cooking is different from the usual method of commercial cooking. Lava rocks are heated to 600 degrees F. and are used to cook the meat rapidly and seal in the juices. The menu also features foot long faot-d o g s and junior burgers. Brazier foods preparation is new to the Dairy Queen operations but the ice-cream franchise was issued in 193S in the United States and later spread to Canada, in 1953. There are now more than 450 Canadian. franchises and most $696,231 Spent In First Quarter The Lethbridge Municipal Hospital spent $696,231 between Jan. 1 and March 31, 1970.

However, she said, tods will mean that all children must learn more about each other's way of life, and this will be difficult because there are few Indian students in city schools and few non  Indian students in reserve schools. Mrs. Yellow Feet is the new director of the Southern Alberta Native Friendship Society's Lethbrddge Friendship Centre, located in the former Trianon Ballroom. She was featured speaker at a luncheon meeting of a class of Lafeeview students' "SAM" program, in which they govern a model political union of Saskatchewan, Alberta and Manitoba. The meeting was organized by the Grade 5 students of teacher Bill Olecksy, including SAM premier' Lorenz Bohnert and deputy premier Ryan Hay-ward, with assistance'from University of Lethbridge student teacher Jo-Anne Haszard. "My grandfather used to tell me stories about the history of our people in his grandfather's Minister Stresses Love9s Role In Life By MARGARET tUCKHURST Herald Staff Writer "The Church loves the world and always has,"; Dr. Paul Streufert, vice-president of the Lutheran Church, Missouri Synod, told delegates to the Alberta-British Columbia .district convention being held in Lethbridge. "Contrary to what they think, people under 30 did not invent love; it's been around since Eden. Younger people accuse my generation of being caught up only in ourselves. But let me advise you to stop for awhile, turn the pages back and look what's gone on before. You will see tijat you did not start the movement to help your brother. You don't know the stories of other generation's love for the world because we don't talk about them." Dr. Streufert said, "Who do you think saved the Ozark farmers where I first ministered a generation ago? Even though many of us didn't have much to share at that time, or at any time during the great depression, we gave of ourselves and our own small stores. "You are not the first generation to be concerned with brotherhood. The first inter-racial service was held years ago in my church in the Ozarks. There was protest .of course. We called in the FBI but the service went on anyway." : But with all the church's concerns, Dr. Streufert pointed out, it is a good deal more difficult to minister to the world today than it was when he began bis career 42 years ago. "The complexity of our own lives in today's shaky .world requires the utmost talents of the professional church worker. We must continue throughout our entire careers to keep up to date through continuing education. We must never turn down the opportunity for further study at workshops, ~. in credit courses, in graduate study. It's only by keeping abreast of the times that we will be relevant." Dr. Streufert said that the need for well-equipped, trained church personnel both at home and in the mission fields is becoming more urgent every year. "We have a lot of personnel in our colleges at present but we need more. We heed congregations to get out and do some recruiting at the grass roots level to fill the ranks. But they need to prepare themselves with a broad education, to be able to cope with the many changing pat-terms of family and social life. "When I began my ministry over 40 years ago," he said, "in the first 10 years I dealt only with two divorce cases. In the last 25 years, since the Second World War I have had to work with over 90. This is an example of our changing times and the fragmentation of the family." $200 Fine A Welling man, Dexter Merrill Wilde, was fined $200 and costs when he pleaded guilty in magistrate's court Thursday to a charge of driving while impaired. time," Mrs. Yellow Feet said, "and in those times they were proud, and looked  after each other. "Children were brought up to listen to and respect other people - their brothers and sisters - and my grandfather used to tell me, 'You pray and your prayers will be answered.' "We learned about the Great Spirit, but He was the same person as you pray to. "Then when we got older we were sent to a residential, school, away from our homes," Mrs. Yellow Feet said. "We didn't want to go, but we had to, and all the ways we did things among our own people had to be changed. "Many of our past customs we couldn't use anymore, and we had to learn a different faith; and these things made us very mixed up. "We were taught by nuns, and they were white skinned and had always Ived a different life than the one our people knew, and we were segregated as Indian children. "But there was another thing we learned then," Mrs. Yellow Feet said. "There were two white children in the school, and we couldn't seem to accept them because they were white. We used to stare at them and they were always alone. "I see now how wrong we were, and that it would be less trouble if we all recognized that we are all really the same. "The saime thing happens to Indians when they meet White men, and they get ignored and sometimes stared at. We may sometimes be dressed differently, but inside we are really just the same as you are-1 have children who think and feel the same way you do. "We've been segregated for so long that there is a wall now between us, and we've never got to know each other," Mrs. Yellow Feet said. She told the students she was disappointed by many of the things she has seen happen to Indians ira Lethbridge, and that she has experienced herself here as an Indian. She said when she and her three small daughters arrived in Lethbridge wh e n she started her Job, they had to stay in a hotel until their furniture arrived. "No hotels would take us- they were al suddenly filled right up. We were only a fam ily of Indians so they thought we were going to be drunks and would break up the whole place." The city police finally telephoned a hotel to ask it. to find a room for Mrs. Yellow Feet and her children, or she doesn't know where they would have slept. "You are the ones who will be able to change all of this," she said to the students. "And you should look at the good things about us - forget the other things that some of us do and lets get together and team to help each other." of the House of Commons does not require postage." The PC-SA board 'of directors has also been working to block what they fear is a potential pollution hazard in southern Alberta. The group recently wrote to R. E. Bailey, Alberta's director of water resources, opposing an increased water diversion application by Shell Canada Ltd. Shell plans to increase its plant intake from the Drywood River, near Pincher Creek. Mr. Bailey replied that the department of health and the fish and wildlife branch of the department of lands and forests aire investigating Shell's application. "PC-SA lauds Mr. Bailey's efforts to include ecological criteria in considerations of Shell's application," the PC-SA spokesman said. The group is now urging that a public meeting be held at Pincher Creek at which government officials could meet with downstream water /Users and other interested groups, and that independent evaluations of the ecological and biological effects of Shell's water use be made. PC-SA is concerned that the proposed! increase in water diversion could require 75 to 100 per cent of the total Drywood River flow during low-water periods in the fall and winter. They point to a danger that the natural salts in the river are already highly concentrated and with loss of,water due to steam from the plant could increase the salt concentration to toxic levels by the time the water is returned to the river bed. PC-SA says tbJat heat pollution is already damaging the river and algae buildups are increasing along the river banks due to the heat pollution. "These factors may all be detrimental to stream flora and fauna and to downstream water users," PC-SA says.
