Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 17, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, August 17, 1970 NEIGHBORLY SQUASH Mr. and Mrs. Robert Nelson, 2707 10th Ave. A. S, returned from vacation recently to find three root systems of spring-planted Hubbard Squash taking over their yard, part of their neighbor's yard and their apple tree. One vine had climbed the tree trunk, grown 10 feet up and then produced a squash. Mrs. Nelson said the vines extend about 35 feet into her yard and in places, 10 feet into the yard of the Ernie Worth family. All the present squash weigh about -four pounds but Mrs. Nelson said she will leave them until frost warnings when they should weigh about eight pounds. Tammy Wayling, left, visiting from Govan, Sask. shows the oddity by handling both apples and squash, seemingly from the same tree. Mrs. Nelson, right, said in many years of gardening, she had not seen such wild growth with squash. Local Group's Recording Hits National Top 50 Chart A seven man Lethbridge band, Copasetic Magafus, has hit RPM magazine's top-50 na- tional chart with its first rec- ord, We'll Have It Some Day. The 45-rpm record was re- corded in Calgary at the end of May by the Lethbridge based recording firm, Big Chief Rec- ords. The record was released the first week in July. It stood 48th on the chart last week, the first week it was list- ed by the music magazine. The group, started last Sep- tember, currently plays its rep- ertoire of country, jazz, rock, folk and popular music in Leth- bridge cabarets, high schools and at other entertainment functions. Lethbridge members are Jack Davies, the group's lead- er, on guitar; John Charles, electric bass and vocals; Kevin McKanna, trombone; Russell Hauser, organist and piano; and Brent Sato, alto sax. Corey Tagg of Cardston, on trumpet and Brad Valdez o' Taber, on drums, complete ths group. We'll Have It Some Day, with the flipside, Big Black Buick, is believed to be the first record by a young Leth- bridge group to hit the national popular music chart. It is expected the record will get more radio exposure across Canada because of its placing m the top 50. Etzikom Woman Wins ,000 By JUDI WALKER Staff Writer Mrs. Clara Johnson of Etzi- kom is richer and happier than she was a week ago.

Mrs. Johnson, a widow and mother of three grown children, had no trouble deciding what to do with her winnings. "I'm FRAME STYLES FROM AROUND-THE- WORLD going to share it with my chil- she said in a telephone interview. "I've always told them that if I ever won any- thing I would share it with them.

Meredith, Edmonton, Federal Aims In Economic Expansion Outlined In Mobile Trailer Presentation Tha aims and objectives of the federal department of re- gional economic expansion were outlined last week for Lethbridge and district res- idents by a slide presentation in a mobile information trailer parked near the downtown area. As outlined in the show, re- gional disparity (the differ- ences in economic growth from region to region) is caused oy a variety of reasons. Chief among them are insufficient resources, lack of industry, poor transportation and inade- quacy of services. The result is invariably a lack of work and low income for the residents of the de- pressed area. The department's approach to the problem of regional dis- parity is two-pronged. It at- tempts to aid in the creation of new job opportunities and also to enable people to take advantage of the opportunities. This requires the co-opera- tion of all levels of govern- ment, organizations in the com- munity and the people involved. The building of new job op- portunities is handled through the incentives grant program, which helps to establish indxis- try in what are termed "des- ignated regions." As these grants are paid only once, the industry must be self- sustaining. It must also be one that would not be able to lo- cate in that particular area without the aid of a grant. The amount of the grant is decided on the basis of the capital cost, the number of jobs created and the over-all effect the new industry will have on the economy. Additional assistance is sometimes provided to the community if the new industry will put a strain on the de- mands for services such as roads and sewers. In this case loans or grants are made available to the prov- ince by the federal government and the community may apply to the province for assistance. In "special areas" a more intensive and comprehensive approach is taken. The depart- ment, in co-operation with other federal agencies and the provincial government, will prepare and implement an over-all development plan. This is done in areas where employment opportunities are exceptionally inadequate. The second prong of the de- partment's attack or regional disparity is to help bring peo- ple in slow-growth areas into the mainstream of economic life. This may involve reloca- tion, obtaining a better educa- tion, or both. It is the responsibility of (he individual to ensure that, with the department's help, he equips himself to take advan- tage of new job opportunities. The slide presentation em- phasized the complexity of re- gional disparity and the flexi- bility of the legislation (the Regional Development Incen- tives Act of 1909) that has been provided to solve it.________ Pre -School Dental Program Reported The pre-school dental pro- gram begun in March by the Lethbridge Health Unit con- tinued until May 14.
