10 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, December 6, 1974 Government subsidy makes the difference HEINZ BOETTGER PUTS CAKES IN OVEN Long, hard day is lifestyle of immigrant baker Heinz Boettger Working 10 to 12 hours a day is a way of life for Heinz Boettger. He starts at 4 a.m., and usually finishes up between 2 30 and 3 p nr. As the owner of the Marquis Pastry Shop, he has to put in the hours to produce bread, cakes, pies and pastries Mr Boettger, who was born in Germany about 30 miles north of Hamburg, first came to Canada in 1949. He became a citizen in 1955 He returned to Germany in 1959 to get married, and worked in his father's bakery A review; He wanted to come back to Canada and sold his wife on the idea. "I prefer it he says "If I disliked anything, I wouldn't be back here." The taciturn baker says he has no opinion on MP Ken Hurlburt's recent House of Commons comments to an im- migrant Member of Parliament. "I never thought about he says, adding that to form an opinion he'd have to ask Mr Hurlburt what he meant When he returned to Canada in October, 1973, Mr. Boettger worked for Fred's Bakery for eight months, and then work- ed for Seven Ericksen In Oc- tober, 1974, he took over the Marquis Pastry Shop, where he employs four people. Unlike some immigrants, Mr Boettger says he knew what he was coming to when he came to Canada. In addition to owning his own business, he has his own house. He says his three children are happy, and his wife is going to school to learn English Pianists heard by 425 By PAT ORCHARD Robin Wood and his wife Winifred, duo pianists, per- formed to an audience of 425 people at the Yates Memorial Centre Thursday evening. The performance began with Bach's Trio Sonata in E flat The trio sonatas are not only stylish masterpieces, but compositional exercises as well A considerable amount of scholarship had obviously gone into the artists' SOLORAY PERSONAL HAIR DRYER With travel case.

Instead of conveying the complex interplay of Bach's most mov- ing counterpoint, the faster movements were made to sound more like animated music boxes. However, the duo took a certain amount of freedom within the basic tempo of the andante and, although one could quite easily frown on their self-indulgence, the resultant musical returns were pianistically, if not metronomically justified. The cantata-like quality of the an- dante was fully conveyed This may not have been the most impeccably stylish interpretation of the sonata, but an enjoyable one nevertheless The duo then regaled us with Mr. Wood's own arrange- ment of Strauss's already hackneyed Blue Danube waltz. Although profundity of musical thought could hardly be expected from either the composer or the interpreters, a little more grace in phrasing and a lot more charm of tone would not have come amiss in this somewhat labored perfor- mance.

The artists showed great variation in tempo and mood, from the rondo to the funeral march, ending with the impressive fugue before the concluding restatement of the original theme. The overall effect of this early romantic theme in decadent late nineteenth century dis- guise was quite impressive. After the intermission the duo played Mozart's Rondo for 21 Fingers Although the music was strictly amiable with fast tempos, the team had a tendency to be glib; nevertheless one could not help but enjoy this domestic romp. The evening concluded with Bazzini's Ronde des Lutins, during which the elves receiv- ed a spirited, stylish and affectionate performance from the two pianists For an encore Borodin's Nocturne from the String Quartet No. 2, was the most rewarding per- formance of the evening. Borodin is a very accessible composer to the sympathetic virtuoso, and both pianists responded enthusiastically to his particular vein of charm and delight in keyboard sonorities Since very few people have both the time and inclination to become virtuoso stylists, piano duettmg is becoming a rarity However, the domesticity of four hands with this couple was not in inverse proportion to their capabilities Each appeared to be a fine musician in his own right and Lethbridge was extremely privileged to receive them PENNER'S PLUMBING 1209 2nd Ave S Phone 327-4121 Doors opened to some new houses By ANDY OGLE Herald Staff Writer Until last spring Jerry and Linda Linden didn't think they would ever be able to afford to own their own home.

Patrick Keenan, 1220 8th Ave. S., was in a car that was northbound on 17th Street South, according to police, and was in collision with a westbound vehicle driven by Melva Seibert, St. S. Police say the northbound vehicle was driven by a juvenile. Mr. Keenan was taken to St. Michael's with a deep cut to his head and is being held in hospital for observation. William Ambux, 16026th Ave. S., who was in the same car as Keenan, was treated and released from St. Michael's. The accident is still under investigation. market, the program provides subsidized interest rates and a five per cent down-payment on moderately-priced housing. To qualify, a family must have at least one child and fall within a given income range.' Each family's situation is reviewed after five years, and the subsidy, which is designed to ensure that no more than 25 per cent of family income goes to housing, is dropped if that income has risen above the upper limit. Families with a gross an- nual income of or less can qualify for assistance un- der the program in Lethbridge at present. Since its inception in the fall of 1973, 127 families like the Lindens and the Beningfields have purchased a home in Lethbridge through the program, Ralph Curran, CMHC manager for Southern Alberta said. When it began, existing houses as well as new ones could be purchased under the program. This year, in a move aimed at increasing the hous- ing stock, the Liberal govern- ment ruled only new houses qualified. In Lethbridge, that narrows the choice down to duplex un- its sometimes referred to as semi-detached units, constructed by Nu-Mode Homes Ltd., the only builder in the city to construct homes under AHOP so far. Single family houses are ruled out simply because land costs are too high. One of the probL in building homes under the program is the escalating cost of land, said Walter Stewart, president of Nu-Mode. "Today it's four times as expensive as the first project we had in 1970 under the in- novative housing scheme, the predecessor to Mr. Stewart said. Prejudices, both personal and built into the system also cause problems, Mr. Stewart adds. "The biggest fight is peoples' prejudices It's dif- ficult to find land to build on and when you do you have to go into rezoning "There have been petitions from residents in an area "Most people agree these houses are needed, but take the attitude: don't build it in my neighborhood Under AHOP, the builder is committed to a set price before be huilds. "To make sure selling prices are reasonable, what we do in effect when we com- mit a loan is say this is the maximum Mr Curran said. "To keep costs down we look for the builders to sharpen their pencils Mr. Stewart says he is able to meet the prices set by the government by building in projects and using a number of innovative ideas to keep costs down "We feel we provide good basic housing to fill peoples' needs, not necessarily their he says. The units surpass CMHC standards, he says. "We use the same methods and the same materials as in our or houses we just cut out a few of the frills." The unit the Lindens purchased is a two-bedroom split level with 792 square feet of developed living space and an equal amount of unfinished space in the basement. Goldilocks ploy gets 60 days9 jail A 28 year old Saskatchewan man was sentenced to 60 days in jail after a Lethbridge couple found a strange man sleeping in their apartment Thursday morning. Gabriel Morning Child from Loon Lake pleaded guilty in provincial court Thursday to unlawfully being in a dwelling house.

Mr. Morning Child told the court he was drunk at the time and thought he was in a friend's apartment.

The Beningfields' unit has 680 square feet developed and three bedrooms including one in the basement. There's a limited choice of interior colors, and floors are done with tile or linoleum carpeting is extra. A major concern, says Mr. Stewart is the parting wall between the two units. We build two complete separate walls, in- sulated with an air space in- between I feel we've been very successful with he said. While the program's budget in Southern Alberta, which takes in Medicine Hat as well as Lethbridge and smaller centres, has been exhausted for this year, Mr Curran said there's an indication his office may be in a fair position to respond to the demand it gets here in the new year Mr Stewart said he hopes to build more units in 1975. "There are problems getting land, but it looks like we should have a continuing he said. Anyone who talks to the Lindens or the Beningfields will be sold on AHOP. "We couldn't have managed to get into a house any other way we're re really happy with said Mrs. Linden Mrs Beningfield talked about the last place she and her husband rented "There was trouble with the she said, "and when it got down to 54 degrees we phoned up the landlord to complain "He said that if we wanted the heat up we would have to pay more a month." "I've always waited to get into a new house to wear the newness off we really love the place." ART DIETRICH DCNTURE Ci-INIC DENTAL MECHANIC SctmrtzlMi. St. S.

The contained in a pill is combined with an adhesive material (usual- ly glycerin or glucose) and a dilutent which is usually some form of starch The drug con- tained in an official pill is usually brought to the strength of two pills which makes up the average dosage of the prescription your doctor has written for you.
