CROSS Whom Every Thursday Is "Kiddies' Day" Phono Now For Your Appointment 327-2673 First Sunday Movie Lethbridge Theatres Ltd. will show its first Sunday movie this week since city council last month passed a bylaw al- lowing paid admission enter- tainment and sports events on the sabbath.

Buckivheat Gives Honey Special Flavor Near doubled buckwheat acreages in southern Alberta could present a problem for honey producers in the area, as they strive to keep buckwheat and clover honey separate. Although buckwheat is a con- tract crop and not grown ex- tensively in southern Alberta, (the total Alberta acreage is acres, with the largest j acreage in central Alberta) a problem could exist if honey bees mingle in buckwheat as well as clover and alfalfa fields. Apparently buckwheat honey has a much stronger flavor and darker coloring than does clover or alfalfa honey, and is usually produced as a pure product. Markets exist for the honey In eastern Canada, but western Canadians seem partial to the milder flower honey. Fred Rathje, manager of the Alpha honey plant ait Bassano, said he has not encountered any problems with mixed honey yet this year, and does not expect any problem aris- ing. MOVING?

Her pre f e r e n c e among flowers is the rose, although she expresses a love for all flower varieties. This, year she grew a lot of marigolds. She feels the gladiolus is an es- pecially beautiful flower and a good floral emblem for the city. This has been a good year for flower growing, said Mrs. Clarke, although recent days have been a bit too hot and dry. Mrs. Clarke started taking flower growing seriously many years ago when she was living with the R. C. Nivens in Leth- bridge. "It's just'for the plea- sure of having colorful and fragrant flowers in abun- she said, when asked what motivated her to start gardening and to continue.

Nature Preserve Plan Outlined For City's Riverbottom Area Creation of a nature preserve in the riverbottom, with special trails for nature lovers, is one of the projects being considered for the city's riverbottom. Neil Andrew, city river val- ley development consultant, said Friday he has been look- ing at several areas for a com- munity nature preserve. One area, located between the CPR high level bridge and the highway traffic bridge, would mesh nicely with other developments being considered for that area of the river val- ley, Mr. Andrew indicated. Mr. Andrew has developed a concept which could prove to be as big a tourist attraction as the Nikka Yuko Centennial Garden, while at the same time providing nature lovers, individuals and families of Lethbridge and district with a full day of entertainment in the outdoors. The concept would involve enlargement of the parking area facing the Sicks' Leth- bridge Brewery Garden so that it joins with the viewpoint im- mediately north .of the CPR high level bridge. Motorists could enjoy the views from the parking area and then leave or embark on a tour sf the nature reserve and other riverbottom facilities. If they decided to spend a few hours enjoying the river- bottom facilities, they would first visit the brewery gardens then go down the coulees to the nature preserve. One suggestion is that they would be able to rent tape recorders which would give de- tails of various points of inter- est on their tour. Points of in- terest would be indicated along the pedestrian trails in the pre- serve. The recordings would be supplemented by a map in a printed brochure. After meandering through the preserve they would visit Indian Battle. Park, the Kins- men's Fort Whoop Up and other points of interest. From there they could take a trip up the coulees to the Sir Alexander Gait Museum where they would get a look at the Blood Clinic Sept. 2, 3, 4 The September Bed Cross blood donor clinic will be held Sept. 2, 3, 4, in Southminster Hall. Quota required is 900 pints. Hours of the clinic will be: Sept. 2, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.; Sept. 3, 1 to 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.; Sept. 4, a.m. to 11 a.m. and G p.m. to 9 p.m. At each clinic, a number oi regular donors are unable to be present due to moving or il] health. New donors are always required to take up the slack, said a clinic spokesman.

A leisurely walk down the coulees would bring them to the bank of the Oldman River where it is suggested a shallow- draft ferry would take them to tile west bank of the river. A novel type of transportation on the west bank would be pro- vided arid the travellers Would eventually wind up beneath the CPR high level bridge. A pedes- trian bridge beneath the CPR structure would transport them Five In Court On Drug Charges Five people appeared hi magistrate's court in Leth- bridge Friday to face drug charges. Paul Robert Weeks, 22, and Danny Craig Pickett, 19, each pleaded guilty to a charge of possession of marijuana Aug. 15 and were sentenced Friday. Weeks received a fine Chamber Meeting At Coast The 41st annual convention of the Canadian Chamber of Com- merce will be held in Vancou- ver next month with Leth- bridge chamber president-elect Morley Tanner, Mrs. Tanner and chamber manager Wilf Bpwns and Mrs. Bowns plan- ning to attend. Resolutions to be considered include marketing of Canadian wheat and oil and the practice of tipping. Guest speakers will include Gerard Levesque, Minister of industry and Commerce and Donald S. MacDonald, presi- dent of the privy council. Mr. Tanner said all cham- ber members are invited to at- tend the convention and any in- terested persons are to con- tact the chamber office for fur- ther details. and was placed on probation for two years while Pickett re- ceived a two year suspended sentence also with a probation order. Pickett was also charged with possession of hashish July 23 and had earlier pleaded guilty to the charge. Pickett's two-year suspended sentence Was for both posses- sion of marijuana and hashish. The two were picked up in Waterton Lakes National Park Aug. 15. Council for Linda Maxine Tyznenko, 19, charged with possession of hashish for the purpose of trafficking, had her case remanded for preliminary trail to Oct. 20. She was arrested June 9 in Lethbridge and released on property bail. Another Lethbridge youth, Akira Leslie Matsui, 18, re- ceived a two-year suspended sentence for possession of hash- ish. He was also placed on pro- bation for the duration of his sentence. In other court action Friday afternoon, Gary James Derk- sen, 21, of Coaldale was fined and was put on probation for two years for possession of cannibus. Derksen had been arrested in Lethbridge by RCMP June 9. QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Certified Dsntal Mechanic Capitol Furniture Bldg. B PHONE 328-76841 SOMETHING.

Cross back to the east side of the river, eventually arriving back at the parking lot at the top of the coulee. It has been suggested that purchasing tickets prior to leaving on the tour would pro- vide an individual, couple or family with various rides and transportation facilities along the route, admittance to the museum and Fort Whoop-Up and access to other facilities. The tour or partial tour, how- ever, would be available to everyone without cost, depend- ing on what they wanted to do. While the tour may sound like a lot of walking, considera- tion is being given to other forms of transportation, such as by stagecoach. Other types of entertainment and amuse- ments could also be devised to fit in with the total concept for the area. Motor vehicle transportation, especially in the area of the nature preserve, where ani- mals, birds and flora could be observed in their natural state from the footpaths, would be minimal. Mr. Andrew indicated the de- velopment as outlined is just hi [he thinking stage and that a lot of work and promotion would have to be done before such a project could even be started. The development is just one of many projects Mr. Andrew has been considering in recent months after extensive study of the riverbottom and the wants and needs of Lethbridge and district.
