WEEKEND CRAFTS FESTIVAL It was a good lime for browsing and looking around and talking wilh Ihe young people in charge of Ihe various exhibits. The occasion was the two-day Oldman River Crafls Festival held in Indian Baltic Park. An estimated 500 persons turned out to ex- amine the candles, leather work, pottery and other exhibits and to buy the things thai struck their fancy.

Licence number of the car, owned by Lethbridge Colleries 'Ltd.. is JB-2133.

The companies capital con- sists of shares of stock and a maximum aggregate of Sunday afternoon at Indian Battle Park A very small dog, safe under a makeshift stage, barked fiercely at a mounted city policeman. The policeman smiled toler- antly for a while and then rode off. The incident could very well summarize Ihe encounter on the weekend betwoen Lelh- bridge and the Oldman River Crafts Festival. The festival organizers did their best to attract the atten- tion of local citizens, with only minimal response. Gerry O'Neill, one of the or- ganizers, estimated about 500 people drifted in and out of the festival area in the two days it was held. In Grande Prairie, wilh a much smaller population lo draw from, a sirr.ilar event at- tracted 300 persons. Gerry is one of the co-ordin- atcrs for a group of young people travelling to smaller Alberta centres this summer presenting a blend of music, crafts, poetry and drama. There are 16 centres on the itinerary; Lelhbridge is the largest. Gerry said the group was satisfied wilh the turnout, although they had expected more people. Despite problems with an electric generator that prevent- ed the music concerts from be- ing amplified, the festival had had its positive moments, he said. He said perhaps the quieter, unamplificd music that had been played had drawn the young people into closer in- volvement, rather than their simply being passive observ- ers. He stressed that communica- tion between the young peo- ple, both local and those with Festifair, and the adult visitors was a major objective of the festival. The crafts themselves were in part simply a means of es- tablishing some rapport with (he older people so that young and old cculd become involved in rap sessions, he said.
