Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 30, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 16-THE LETHBRIOGE HERALD-Friday, AuflUit Rain may dampen weekend pursuits Cooler temperatures and possible showers forecast for the Lethbridge Labor Day weekend will have farmers keeping a worried eye on the sky. They badly need two to three weeks of warm, dry weather to pull off their crops. As they step up the pace of the harvest, their urban fellows will probably be tak- ing a more leisurely approach to the last holiday of the summer. Golf, swimming, tennis and bicycling (with certain major restrictions) are all available to Lethbridge residents. Drinking beer, gardening, barbecuing and watching television football will also probably rate near the top of the preferred action list. Despite a limit of five cases of beer per customer at local liquor stores, both stores have stocked up so they won't run out for the holiday. A strike by Alberta Brewers' Agents workers has halted beer deliveries for the moment. The stores will be closed for the Monday holiday. But taverns will remain open, with restrictions applied only to off-premises beer sales. Outdoor city swimming pools will be open for their last weekend of the year, shutting down after the holiday. Swimmers who miss this last chance for fresh air activity can still use the Fritz Sick indoor pool. Hours for public swimm- ing at the outdoor Lions Pool for the weekend are 1 p.m. to 5 p m. and 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Henderson outdoor pool hours are 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. Fritz Sick hours are 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. and 6pm to 9 p m. with the addi- tion of an adults only swim Monday from 12 noon to 1 p.m. Playgoers can attend an historical musical spoof on the Canadian West in Fort Macleod and Lethbridge. The production has arous- ed controversy for its representation of frontier Metis guide. Jerry Potts. "Gone With the West. opens tonight in Fort Macleod at the Elks Hall at 8 p.m. Saturday and Sunday it moves to the Yates Centre in Lethbridge at 8 p.m. Tickets at for adults and for children will be available at the door. Circus fans can turn out to see the Canadian Inter- GYM SPORTS BAGS Back-to-School SPECIAL 20% OFF Call Sporting Goods 327-5767 DOWNTOWN national Circus performing at the Lethbridge exhibition grounds Saturday at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. Presented by the Lethbridge Gyro Club, the cir- cus includes aerialists, clowns, acrobats, elephants and wild animals. Saturday is also the day for the Napi Friendship Centre's first annual picnic on the eastern edge of Waterton Lakes National Park. The af- fair gets under way at 1 p.m. for residents of the Peigan and Blood reserves. Activities include a tug-of- war. sack race, three-legged race, canoe races, pie eating contests and water football. Fishermen may try for goldeye and walleye at Bassano Dam and in the Bow River. Fish and wildlife officials report average success for pike at Rock and Cowoki lakes, but low success at Lake Newell and along the Bow. In Lethbridge, the post of- fice will make only special deliveries Monday and make collections on a Sunday basis. No wicket service will be offered, but stamps will be available in a vending machine on the west side of the building. Pharmacies list emergency service numbers in the yellow pages of the phone book. For most outdoor enthusiasts, the long weekend will likely be the last oppor- tunity for camping trips. Beauvais Lake campground was half full last weekend and the campground may be three-fourths full during the long weekend. Fishing is reported fair. Officials at Willow Creek and Chain Lakes campgrounds are expecting a capacity crowd of campers this weekend. But while fishing at Willow Creek is reported to be poor, anglers are having better luck at Chain Lakes Campgrounds at two Cypress Hills sites. Elkwater and Ferguson Hill, are ex- pected to be full during the three-day holiday. Fishing in Reesor Lake, Spruce Coulee and Elkwater Lake is said to be fair to poor Roads into all campsites are reported to be in good con- dition. Wreck takes Grasmere man SPARWOOD (HNS) -John William Phillips, 18, Grasmere, was killed in a single car accident at a.m. today on Highway 4 about five miles north of its junction with Highway 3 when the vehicle left the road, RCMP said.

City Scene Aphids storm city You'll probably have to grin and bear it until the first frost. That seems about the best thing to do about the swarm of aphids attacking city yards. "You could spray a particularly heavily-infested tree or shrub and reduce the aphid population somewhat, but it would depend on what your neighbor is doing said Phil Blakely, information officer at the Lethbridge Research Station. "They're flying all he said, but added that just spray- ing the air would not do any good at all. Happily the tiny pests will do little serious damage at this stage to most plantings, the research station reports, and the influx now won't necessarily mean lots of aphids next summer. But there's nothing unusual about the present swarm either. Aphis, of which there are several species, have one of the highest reproduction rates of any insects, according to the research station. They'll occur in the billions, which is why aphids can become such a problem. Cyclist struck and left Lethbridge city police are looking for a motorist who was in collision with a 43-year-old Lethbridge woman bicyclist Wednes- day and failed to remain at the scene of the accident. Tamaro Zajac, 1508 13th St. N., was northbound on 6th Avenue N. in the 1300 block when she was in collision with a car. The driver stopped and then left without offering assistance, she told police. Mrs. Zajac was taken to St. Michael's hospital treated, and released. Poisoners work city Lethbridge city police are investigating the fifth dog poison- ing in the city in the last eight months. Doug Wilding, 1020 12th St. A S., told Lethbridge city police Thursday his six-year-old male spaniel was found violently ill Tuesday. He took it to the Green Acres Animal Hospital on the Coutts highway where the dog died Wednesday. Veterinarian, A. J. Finell, said death was caused by strychnine poisoning. Joyce Wilding told police there have been several com- plaints about the dog's barking. Police have no suspects Two of the four poisonings were in the Lakeview area, one was at 14th St. and 15th Avenue S. and one was at 21st Street and 9th Avenue c Dog poisoning is a criminal offence punishable by a max- imum of six months imprisonment, a fine or both. Men plead innocent Three men jointly charged with being in possession of a stolen car pleaded not guilty in provincial court Thursday and were remanded until Sept 11 for trial. Warner Scout, 29, and Rodney Bottle, 22, both of Cardston and Roland Cotton, 28, of Standoff were charged Aug. 24 Scout and Cotton were released from custody after signing undertakings to appear for their trials. Bottle was remanded in custody. Scream routs prowler A Lethbridge woman who awoke to find a prowler in her bedroom early Thursday morning scared the intruder away by screaming The woman's daughter told Lethbridge city police she was awakened by her mother's scream about 3 a.m. An intruder entered the house through an unlocked back door, went into the kitchen, and then into her mother's room, she said. The man then shone a flashlight in her mother's face, her mother screamed and the man fled. The woman could offer no description of the man and did not report the incident to police until 13 hours later. Deliverymen want brewers' wages Striking beer deliverymen and warehousemen want pari- ty with their counterparts in the breweries, a union official said today Stan Maxwell, shop steward for Local 288 of the Inter- national union of United Brewery Workers, told The Herald the employees of Alberta Brewers' Agents Ltd. earn about an hour and had been offered 66 cents an hour for a one-year contract. But members who work in the breweries earn close to an hour, he said. The men also want better medical and dental coverage, and job security, he said. The ABA employees make brewery-to-warehouse and warehouse to outlet deliveries. They are opposed to any move to contract out brewery to warehouse deliveries, said Mr. Maxwell. ABA is a delivery system jointly owned by Labatt's, Molson's and Carling O'Keefe breweries. EXPERIENCED PAINTERS Required immediately lor house painting. Phone 328-7005 Gerald Clifford, ABA manager in Lethbridge, said 12 drivers and warehousemen were affected here, and they handled all beer except Uncle Ben's. No beer was moving, he said. Mr. Clifford said he did not know two long existing supplies might last. "It all depends on the people." Don Olson, assistant manager of the south side li- quor store, said it was still hard to tell how long supplies would last. Customers were rationed to five cases per person per day, but more people were buying beer than usual, he said. The supply should last well into next week, but ordinarily it would last all of next said Mr. Olson. Ted McColl, assistant manager of the Garden Hotel and the Coalbanks Inn, said supplies should last till the first of the week, and no rationing measures had been introduced. But spokesmen for the El Rancho Motor Hotel, the Holi- day Inn and the York Hotel said off-premises sales had been stopped in their taverns. All expected to survive the weekend. DR. W. R.

(Medical Dental Bldg.) 327-2959 Talks die, school start may delay By MURDOCH MacLEOD Herald Staff Writer KIMBERLEY, B.C. (Staff) Negotiations between school authorities and employees in the East Kootenays have broken off, a union spokesman said Thur- sday. Clarence Lacombe, a Cana- dian Union of Public Employees field represen- tative, said the last talks centred on wages, with the school districts offering a 16- per-cent increase over one year. CUPE demanded 24 per cent, he said. No further talks are scheduled, said Mr. Lacombe. The breakdown should lead to a complete shutdown of schools on Tuesday, school- opening day, he added, noting if the boards attempted to operate the schools with non- union personnel, they would be thus inviting a long, bitter strike. Geoff Watson, president of the Kimberley Unit of CUPE Local 343, says the workers want to keep up with the cost of living. Members of the local, which represents clerical, maintenance, custodial employees and bus drivers in the Kimberley School District, averages about an hour, he says. The unit has been on strike since Aug. 19. The base rate for janitor- Meeting set to discuss annexation Lethbridge city and county councils will meet Sept. 12 to discuss "annexation Mayor Andy Anderson said Thursday. The meeting will start dis- cusion of long range plans for additions to the city as well as the more immediate annexa- tion of nearly a section of land for industrial park expansion, the mayor said. "We have to give very careful consideration to future areas of the he said. "When you annex you have to look at long range planning requirements. There's no use annexing a little parcel here and a little parcel there." The meeting is expected to be only the first of several as the city and county discuss common problems related to the future growth of the city. The city has already served notice, however, that it wants to annex some 500 acres of land it owns or has under op- tion in the county at the city's northeast corner. It wants the land for in- dustrial park expansion, which is estimated at million to develop, but for which promises of provincial assistance have been received. County Reeve Dick Papworth said Thursday the county council discussed that annexation at a meeting in July but has not yet taken a formal approach on it. There was some talk at the meeting, however, that if the city wanted to annex the future industrial park area it should also take Hardieville and the Fairview subdivision east of the city and the tiny Rollag subdivision south of the city near the Lethbridge Com- munity College. Mayor Anderson said the city hasn't yet set any definite areas for annexation other than the industrial park ex- pansion. Land use also has to be con- sidered, he said. Substandard agriculture land should have priority for residential or in- dustrial expansion, he said. "For example, the flat table land above the coulees is not that good and is the sort of land we should be using if it's practical to service the mayor said. He added that while the city is fortunate in having more than acres either owned or under option on the west side, he's always held the opi- nion people should have a choice on which area of the city they want to reside. There is still some land on the north side but it could run out in 1 Vi years
