Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 27, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta ___. Tbuudoy, April 27, 1972 THE lETMBRiDGE HERAID 3 Uuxlu MeraW rni: IIKKM.I) TIH: win POT-LUCK Girarcl. chief District luter-failh service held NEW DAYTON (UK'S) An inter faith service with the congregations of St. Edmund's Roman Catholic and New Day- ton United churches wor- shipping together was a recent event at the United Church. Prepayment policy okayed by Taher town council Sometimes it's hard for us to realize the Lcthbritlge Herald is y really fine newspaper. Its greatness extends a long way back. When I get tired of teas, WI meetings, Jolly Janes ami so on, I head for (he li- brary and took up the old mas- ters, The old masters of ear loo ti- ing, that is. One of the greatest was the late George McManus. Many a Sunday afternoon I .sat in the white rocking chair i beside the coal stove in tny Aunt Ina's kitchen al Magralh and chuckled over the antics of the Kids, Til- lie the Toiler. Mr. and Mrs., but most of all .Hugs. McManus was lucky he worked in the days when the comic strips took up, and were given, pi enly of n e wsp ape r space. The: example we show took up an entire page of the Lethbridge Daily Herald. Gradually, newspapers start- ed using more and more strips. As a result, the comics were squeezed d o w n inlo tiny squares. They ran across four columns instead of the long six and eight-column .strips of the good old rip-roaring cartooning days. McManus haled having Jiggs squeezed down into postage stamp size but Ihcre wasn't much he could do aboul it, Bringing Up Father has (o be the greatest comic strip the Lelhbridge Herald has ever published. We find its creator working the New York World in 1906. Then Hearst hired him. A list of some of his early features includes Almn and Oliver for the St. Louis Repub- lic, Snoozer, The Merry Murce- leiifi, Let. George Do It, Pan- TABER (FINS) A policy providing for the prepayment of services except paving on new- ly-developed town-owned lots has been approved by town council.

A film, The Supper, was i shown and discussed. i The offering of S24 was sent vate properties in areas where (lie services are already pro- vided.

This was served by the Catho- lic Church Women- Register now PICTURE BUTTB (HNS) A. Bianchmi, principal of the Dorothy Dalglicsli School, is registrating children who will be attending school in Septem- ber. registration chiles are May 1 and 1. Children eligible must reach their sixth birthday on or be- fore Feb. 28, Mr. Biaiielnni asks that par- ents bring birth certificates at the time of registration, times are 9 to 12 noon and 1 to 4 revenue of the town has been subsidizing certain services, a practice to he discontinued. Per foot surcharges making up the ?30 adopted include sew- er mains water mains S3; water and sewer to property based on one-inch wa- ter line and four-inch sewer, S4.80; sidevv a Ik. curb and gut- ter installation street nnd lane ballasting and gravelling and electrical under- ground service and lighting Maintenance ta.xcs on water and sewer services will com- mence in 20 years, considered lo be the normal life of these mains, and on the same basis tO years for sidewalks. These are proposed terms to be veri- fied by town management. Because paving cannot be placed until roadway settle- ment is complete and all pro- perties on a street are occu- pied, council agreed that street paving should become a sep- arate item to be installed under local improvement program. This would be geared to actual cost of installation and deben- ture payments on money bor- rowed for the installation. The proposal for prepayment of services mei with some op- position from councillor Bruce Milliken who "was not con- vinced as to the wisdom of the policy unless a building boom occurs." However, Mr. Milliken along with Mayor A very anil other members of council except Mrs. Helen volet! for the surcharge. Mrs. Wentz had moved that the surcharge be but the motion was defeat- ed. Council continued ils discus- sion on selling price of lots to he consisent with the antici- pated increase in values when the general assessment is made Ifite in the vear.

Jrrom the very start. ns's work masterly in hu- mor and design. Jitsl look at the early page from The Lethbridge Herald. Look at the beautiful lines, the composition of each box, and the general neatness, Anrl he kept right on doing it for half a century. Bringing Up Kathcr appeared first in a tentative way in the American Aug. 3, It came lo Loth bridge soon after. It took some time for the new Jot, social problems of a ng man grown rich overnight, o make itself felt. In 191fi it was still only a laiiy, Uosie's Ueau, occupying he Sunday page. But in the inrly 1920s Bringing Up Fulli- is the big strip in both SVHI- lay and daily, and Hosie's lakes the part of .1 small- er feature in the Sunday, where t remained until 1915, when it vas replaced by Suooknms. The hero is an Irish immi- working man who had come into a fortune. His ter- wife, Maggie, took to lew ly- rich w ays t h v.ea I; but liggs himself wanted to escape from Ihe mau.sion t.o corned beef and cabbage aL Dinty Moore's. Bringing Up Father is yet another oM strip that survived in spite of the death of its crea- tor in 1951 It was dropped from the Lethbridge Herald in the lute 1960s. McManus, who looked re- markably like Jiggs, put into his creation a sharp, clean line. Remember Jigg's mop of hair and tilted cigar butt? The theme of the Jiggs and Maggie saga is that money has flooded a simple Irish work- man's life in amounls large enough to satisfy any dream and while this brings out all the termagant in Maggie, it also brings out all the Jiggs in Jiggs this being the really funny Ihi-ng about (he strip.
