Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 29, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THE LETHBR1DGE HERAID Tuesday, Auguit 29, Conflict oS interests Resignations tendered c_v By RUDY IIAUGENKDEB Herald Staff Writer Controversy winch wouM taliltxl tor decision to a future meeting, resulted from n clauses the society's constitution (1 member imkc Ilio most seasonal par- which slates no board member liamcntarian shrink raged at a can also be a paid staff mcm- Nativc [''riendsliip Society of j her.

Tlie resignations M-crc tabled to tackle a more pressing prob- in meeting Differences of opinion be- tween city officials nnd local Kousebuild'crs, conceming hous- ing costs and a show home scheme for Weslbridgc, should he resolved at a meeting to be arranged by the city manager. In response to a letter from the Lcthbridge Housing Asso- ciation, city council Monday in- structed City Manager Tom Nutting to meet the housebuild- crs. No date was set. The letter referred to recent statements attributed to Mr. Nutting and planning commis- sion executive director Erwin with which the hous- ing association takes issue. Or.e such statement, based on an Alberta Housing Corporation market analysis, was aimed at the cost of new housing in the city. The cost per square foot to build a house in Lethbridge has been more In nine of the last 10 years than cither in Ed- monton or Calgary. Mr. Nutting's suggestion that profits a e higher here was countered by the association's statement that housing costs are higher because added frills are built into houses to meet consumer demand. The association also disputes Mr. Adderley's statement that 80 to 90 per cent of I lie house designs here come from one source. That mailer was significant in council's decision to buy de- signs for six show homes in West bridge. The association takes the stand that the city should not get involved in an area pre- handled by private en erprise, such as pulling up how homes. The city will not, in fact, pu1 ip Ilia show homes, but wil irovidc the home designs for ocal builders to use.

Unless Ihc society appoints a. icw Lethbridge based co-ordin- itor to lake the place of Rose Vcllow Feet who resigned from he post earlier, Smith, a ederal manpower official, says ho federal government will Irop the program. A committee of Ihree com- of society president Nel- son Small Legs, vice president Agnes Smith and hoard member Rudy Haugencdcr were directed o appoint a co-orrtinator today "rom a list of qualified persons ivailablc.

The board, meeting at the LcUibridgo Friendship Centre which under the terms of Ihe society's consituUon is also a project, endorsed an emergen- cy committee decision lo raise Ihe centre's executive direc- tor's salary. The decision was reached after Bill Head, the executive director, notified Hie committee that he would have to tender his resignation unless his sal- ary of per month was in- creased.

Members of LCC evening family trail ride wend their way down coulees How The West Was Won-the hard way City seeks help on smell., noise The noise and smell nuis- ances in the southern pert of the city may yet ne resolved. At least two approaches were discussed at city council Mon- day when a resolution for the city to continue exploring met- hods to alleviate the problems was unanimously approved. Although no specific action was requested, it was left to the administration to come up with possible solutions. City Manager Tom Nutting suggested the responsibility for clearing up the smell from City Packers Ltd. on 43rd St. S. lies with the provincial govern- ment. City council could exert political influence on the prov- ince to get action, Mr. Nulling said. City solicitor John Hammond said city officials discussed with a provincial health depart- ment representative last week a possible monitoring system, with equipment to measure the aroma. Alderman Vaughan Hemhrofl put stock to the influence of a citizen's committe, which could be fonned to exert pres- sure on City Packers. Aid. Hembroff also suggested council "put an arm on the County of Lcthbridge" to an >roach the company regarding :hc problem. City Pack'ers is outside the city limits, within the county. The noise nuisance, identified In a letter to counci as coming from the stock car races in the Exhibition Grounds was also briefly discussed. Alderman V e r a Ferguson said the city should explore other places for the stock car races to be held. The noise from the races is ''really, really bac on Aid. Ferguson said. !vfr. Nutting said the hour? the races are run comply the city's anti-noise bylaw. By BEHNICE 1IERI.E Herald Staff Writer "I don't believe this is How 'he West Was said one if my tired fellow trail riders. Gripping onto my horse for dear life I couldn't see any- me could possibly have spare ime or attention left to avoid lying arrows. It took, all my concentration to just keep my- self on the horse. I kept telling myself 1 wasn't afraid and I was going to con- quer this horse before he over- ook me. Everyone talks about going horseback riding so why shouldn't I try it. I decided (with a little urging from my that I would lake part in the Lclhbridge Community College evening trail ride, They take all types of riders, even novices like myself who Blood clinics start Sept. 5 The lied Cross will operate a blood donor clinic Sept. 5 to 7 in Gym 1 of the Civic Sports Centre.

The group I was in con- sisted of 15 people. TVie inalruc- :or told us we were one of Ihc better groups. We were mak- ing reasonable time and no one had fallen off their horse. When we stopped for refresh- ments I learned that tying up a horse wasn't the simple mat- ter it looked. You don't tie him to the tree with the reins. In slead you a rope that is around his neck and just slip the reir.fi in a loose loop back over his head. I stopped to talk lo Perry for awhile before going for my drink and three hot dogs (rid ing is marvelous for the appc 1 couldn't help feeling jit sony for him tecause hi wasn't going lo get any coo water or even n sugar lump Somewhere in the back of my mind I felt it was kind of crue to make him lug mo up the bill and gallop me around, and ther I'm the one that says I'm lira ar.d sore and needs somethin to drink. But I was assured that th horses would get their rub down and food when they go back '.o the stables. They seemed to know it too localise the trip back wasn1 half na bad as tlic trip oul Maybe it was because til horses were more enthusiast! because as Roxanno put I "They darn well know they'r going back." Or maybe it wa because we look an easier rout with just a few less hills. As we set hack it was cal: and peaceful to ride by th water and to'feel the cool nigt It gave you a feeling that ade you ride high on your use with your feet loose id easy in the stirrups. T found out that was the cor- ;ct way to do it too. You m't pi't your whole foot in ic stirrups. 1 was told you just, jt the hall of your foot on the rip part and take it easy. It seemed that on the way r.ck I fiual'.y learned how to love my Ixxly with the horse's lovemcnt. I had stopped bob- ing up and down like a loose alloon caught in a fan. A fellow rider said, "if you ft yourself up on the first ump ar.d let yourself down on he second jump you get the hythm of Ihe horse." Jt works ut believe me I haven't got lat system to perfection yet! As we got closer to the cs someone remarked, "Hey i-here do I turn (he light on, on his Yeah, it was kind if dark but Ihe horses seemed o know whore they were go- ng. And I think they were as lappy as we were to be going here. As we slid off it was nice to hear Ann say, "We'll clean up he horses. Just lie them up ar.d you can leave." Who nf said good-bye to Per- ry 1 realized by the way he that the ride hadn't got- ten liim down ot all. In fact I was certain that he was going lo fee] a lot he-tier in the morning than I would. The after effects aren't really (hat had. liesiiles not being able lo til, bend down quickly lift your arms, your body Li in fine condition.
