Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 22, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, August 25, 1970- Open Verdict On Racing Death A coroner's inquest Friday in Lethbridge ruled an open verdict in the Aug. 4 death of Dwayne Elwin Fiedler of Cal- gary, who died following a rac- ing car fire and roll-over. The accident occurred at the Lethbridge Exhibition Speed- way track. Mr. Fiedler was driving a modified Formula B racing car. It caught fire, went out of control on a corner, roll- ed and burned. Mr. Fiedler, according to UK medical report at the inquest, died of multiple severe burns to the whole body ami (he inhalation of burning gases. Fiedler was taken to Leth- bridge Municipal Hospital and then transferred to Foothills hospital in Calgary where he died at a.m. Aug. 4. The jury recommended that the Southern Alberta Auto Hacers, sponsors of the meet, give consideration that within the club they devise some means lo improve the structure of the fuel tank and fire wall (a protective devise between the driver and the gas tank.) Alberta Chief Coroner M. M. Cantor of Edmonton said it was obviously an unfortunate ac- cident. He speculated that something might have happened to Fied- ler's car or it might have been a lack of judgement, but in any case, it was an accident. "Racing is a sport with in- herent dangers which gives most drivers a certain amount of satisfaction when participat- he said. "Most drivers are exception- ally careful and safety is al- ways utmost in their minds." He said SAAR was studying safety conditions, claimed by some drivers present to be as good or better than most tracks, and that the club was taking measures to add to the safety factor. U of L Architects Win Expo Award The Vancouver architectural firm of Erickson Massey, which this week won for Can- ada the top architectual award at Expo '70 in Osaka, Japan, is also the architect for the Uni- versity of Lethbridge. V of L Road Upgrading Planned Gravelling and oiling of the college access road south of Scenic Drive at 23rd St. is planned1 for sometime this month. Cost of the improvements, es- timated at between and will be shared by the city, the University of Leth- bridge and the Lethbridge Community College. The city is responsible for the north half of file road which falls within the city limits. A city spokesman said the paving of the road, the condi- tion of which has been criti- cized in the past, has not been done because it will very likely be relocated in the future. The design of the University of Lethbridge, in the contours of the coulee lands on the west side of the Oldman River, is being watched with keen inter- est across Its uniqueness is that that it will go 10 storeys down into the coulee lands to harmonize not only with the aesthetics of the area, but also the nearby high level bridge, for which Lethbridge has been accorded considerable fame. Seventy-two countries parti- cipated hi the special Expo arehitectual awards. The an- nouncement about the first place winning for Canada was made by the Architectural In- stitute of Japan. Czechoslovakia placed second and Switzerland placed third in the contest. The Canadian Pavilion's 000 square feet of mirrors form an open truncated pyramid sloped at 45 degrees. Daily they reflect thousands of Expo visit- ors and the skies above them and the fluttering flags of many nations. Japanese magazines have voted Canada's pavilion the favorite of Japanese youth, earning it the title "The Young Pavilion." Canada's Pavilion also leads in attendance at Expo '70 sur- passing both Russian and Am- erican pavilions by wide mar- gins.

Musical Is Theatre' But Production Falters By JOAN BOWMAN Herald Entertainment Writer Will Shakespeare was not a man to write from a play- wrighling manual. An actor- manager, he kept one eye on the demands of the stage and another firmly on the box of- fice. It's possible he would have pronounced an Elizabethan blessing on Your Own Thing, a very much contemporary rock- musical which filches what it wants and drops what it doesn't from his Twelfth Night. A cast of 17, including nine principals Friday night opened a four-night run at the Yates Memorial Centre of t h e Don- ald-D r i v e rs adaptation of Shakespeare's comedy. At best, the cast has settled itself on a rambunctious, irrev- erent play which combines fine songs, twisty plot and some sharp dialogue. At worst, the production hasn't quite caught up to the potential of the play or the cast. Gone are such Shakespear- ean characters as Sir Toby Belch and Malvolio. Sifted out are Sebastian and Viola, twins who are now a rock-singing duet. Duke Orsini has become Orson, the manager of a three- man rock group, the Apoc- alypse. The group's fourth member, Disease, has been drafted. Vaguely following Twelfth Night, the twins are separated after a ship wreck and each lands in the 20th-century Illyria, New York. SHOE REPAIRS BEST FAST x CHEAP SHOE HOSPITAL 331 llth Street South Viola replaces Disease in the group. Sebastian replaces her. (In this day when women look like men and vice versa, the idea almost fits.) Olivia, a discotheque owner is courted by Orson, but she's 30, that suspect age when wom- en fling coyness out the win- dow and decide on a straight- forward approach. Olivia falls for Sebastian- Viola (She thinks both are Orson gets gung-ho for Sebastian-Viola (He thinks both are Thus Olivia and Orson are skirting the suburbs of Sodom and Gomorrah. Your Own Thing is good theatre. Through slides and voices of such personages as John Wayne and Everett Dirk- sen (right Humphrey Bogart and Elizabeth I (left wing) and God it joshes the American draft and the universal My-Country- Right-Or-Wrong, but it does so U of A Courses To Be Offered In Taber School TABER (HNS) The Uni- versity of Alberta will use schools in Taber School Divi- sion for credit courses offered to anyone in the district. The courses will take place Monday and Thursday evenings at the W. R. Myers high school here, and may expand to other schools as occasion demands. Approval for school use was given at a meeting of the divi- sion's board of trustees, where it was learned that proposed credit courses will be introduc- tory anthropology (study of earlier civilizations) and edu- cational media. MARTIN BROS. FUNERAL HOMES LTD. (SECOND GENERATION) NOW TWO CHAPELS SERVING LETHBRIDGE AND DISTRICT THE TRADITIONAL CHAPEt 812 3rd AVENUE SOUTH THE MEMORIAL CHAPEL 703 13th STREET NORTH in fun. There's no heavy mes- sage. The Lethbridge cast often de- livered its lines dead-on and projected a youthful robust- ness, but it had trouble with the tec-large stage and their movements. Characters, particularly an interminable letter ex- change sequence, seemed swal lowed up on the stage. There was too much space to cover, and it cost time and tempo to get to destinations. The movement problem was one of not catching the gusto and vitality of a rock musical. There just wasn't enough full- throttle dancing (or Kim Drew makes an attrac- tive Viola, and displayed nice flair for comedy. What she lacked was control of her movements, and a voice which tended to flatness. Lee Drew, as Sebastian, who did double duty as director of the play and actor had better dance movement and control, but seemed too often to be upstaged by the Yates stage. Ellyn Mells as Olivia was the person most fully in con- trol of her character, and seemed ready to take over the stage at times. Al Janzen as Orson had, with Mrs. Mells, the best voice among the four leads. Mr. Janzen seems intent on lean- ing iip from Jus right leg and some times his actions looked awkward, but he came close to capturing the whole character. The Apocalypse o u g Smith, Kirk Jensen and Boh Bainborough dealt out hu- mor as they ranged from fugue to barbershop quartet singing. However they weren't driving enough for a rock group. Others in the cast were Vir- ginia Heid, as a sniffling un- concerned nurse, Cliff Black as establishment stage man- ager, and Ian Noble as a ship's purser. Your Own Thing might be improved by a wilder use of lighting, and by bringing the excellent four-member orches- tra up on stage. The show also needs snappier timing and punched-out delivery, notably of songs. It is, however, a first-rate play, and a funny, engaging production, What is nettlesome is that the husband-wife team of Lee and Kim Drew leave shortly for Calgary because no I work is available in Leth- bridge. They are talents (Ms city can ill-afford to lose. Your Own Thing continues tonight at 8, and Aug. 29 and By HIC SWHIAKT Herald Staff Writer Facts have been .released by ;he Lethbridge police depart- ment supporting the need for a native court worker following >raise from police, court and irovincial officials for the hree-month pilot project. Lethbridge City Police Chief James Carpenter said liquor arrests in the city increased by almost 100 in 1969 to and most tern involved native people. He said Feb. 1, 1970 the pol- icy changed to include all in- toxication arrests under Sec- tion 87A of the Lioiior Control Act calling persons to bs lock- ed up over night and then fed weakfast and released. "A continuation of the policy if a person is arrested within 30 days of a previous arrest :cr the intoxication charge, the person then must appear in he said. "So far this year, there have Deen 084 intoxication arrests in :he city and from this total, mostly native people, 457 have seen arrested twice because of the 30-day stipulation in the new law." Mr. Carpenter said this com- pares to RCMP arrests in Alberts on the same charge from Sept. 1, 1969 to June 1, 1970. "In this period, there were only repeaters arrested who had to appear in court. "When you look at the sta- tistics, Lethbridge has a repeat arrest ratio of one repeat for every two arrests while the province has one repeat for ev- ery five arrests." Mr. Carpenter said Albert Lapatac, the native court work- er hired for the pilot project' by the John Howard Society of Alberta, has been trying to pick up these native people who go to court, counsel them and then get them back on the farm and out of the city. "He has had some success but it is a slow process. "Mr. Lapatac is a well edu- cated Indian and has shown that he may succeed in his l. If he does, it will be a betterment for the Indian com-' munity as well as the white community." Magistrate Lloyd Hudson said in aji interview, "There has been such an improvement that the program should be continued. It is hard to say how much impact his work will have until time can show the results." He said Mr. Lapatac is very helpful to the process of the court because he can communi- cate with the Indian people who appear in court. "'He can make enquiries prior lo court appearances, ex- plain any mitigating circum- stances that don't come to my attention or to the attention of the he said. "Native people, particularly the women, won't tell me any- thing when I am on the bench but they will talk to one of their own people. "Albert is an excellent man for the job because he is a Cree married to a Blacktoot which does away with any sus- picions either nation could have for him." Scholarship For City Man Gary Edward Hanson, son of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Hanson, 815 16th St. S., has been award- ed one rf reven Sir James Dunn Scholarships in Law, 1970-71, for study at Dalhousie Law School, Dalhousie Univer- sity. The scholarships, valued at a year, are for students with outstanding academic rec- ords and qualities that "give promise of attaining distinction in the legal profession." Mr. Hanson received his BA degree from the University of Lethbridge in May, 1970. He also won the Canahian Cham- ber of Commerce Travelling Scholarship in 1969, which en- abled him to trayel across Can- He said alcohol is the great- est problem facing native peo- ple today. "They arc very law abiding people, with their only real problem liquor. ;lt is difficult for me lo talk to UK people from the bench and it is difficult for any white person to counsel them. 'Since Mr. Lapatac has a thorough knowledge of the al- cohol problem, he knows how lo handle the liquor situation belter than most." A meeting earlier tin's week brought assurances from Jack Lee, director of correctional services, lhat Ihe project will be continued until S'ept. 30 with financial assistance from the office of the attorney general.
