Mr. Harrold urges Ihoso rec- ommending modification of the system to remember that the present elevator facilities were built at considerable expense and that the majority of coun- try elevators in Alberta are owned by farmers. Two distinct concepts have re- cently been put forward by transport industry sy't The first visualize's an inland terminal receiving shipments hy truck from 100 or so country elevator points. This concep't would leave a system of coun- try elevators along most of our present railway lines The distance fanners would be required to haul grain under this scheme would not increaso substantially and would there- fore permit farm tracks to de- liver in much the same way as they do at present. This proposal would require most grain to be elevated twicn in the country, at the country elevator and inland terminals. It would use unit trains and speed up the unloading process at the terminal. The second concept assumes that a large majority of coun- try elevators now in existence will disappear fairly soon and be replaced by major gathering points. This system would in- crease the distance farmers would be expected to deliver grain and would require provi- sion of better transport equip- ment by farmers, improvement of district roads and location of farm grain storage along all- weather roads throughout the province. It would also require major capital investment for in- land terminal construction. This concept would also uee unit trains and could create sub- stantial savings for the rail- ways, hnt would impose an in- creased expens" on producers.

Audience 'well entertained' in symphony season opener By DEAN BLAIR No musical taste was left u touched Monday night whe the Lethbridge Symphony 0 chestra and Chorus presente a varied program for the first concert of the 1970-71 se; son at the Yates Memori; Centre. The concert, which altracte a large audience, featured th orchestra, in the first half o the program, under its ne conductor Lucien Ncedham From the moment he mounte the podium there was no doub he was in command and th. the orchestra was in profes sional hands. The concert opened with th Overture to The Secret Mar riage by Cimarosa. The wo: was well-played with the or chestra responding with con siderable flexibility. Some i the quicker articulations wer not in perfect ensemble anc the eternal problem of intona lion reared its ugly head on occasion. The major work of the eve ning for the orchestra was the Symphony No. 38 in D majo by Mozart. This work, a prod net of Mozart's later years was a challenge for conductoi and orchestra, and despite its several flaws in performance LLOYD G. DANIEL Moving To Calgary?

The slow introduction to the first movement was well-ban died, but the entrance of thi first theme of the allegro was nearly lost in the shuffle. A fine orchestral balance was carefully maintained through out. Toward the end of the movement a thematic dialogue between high and low strings slipped for a moment into an argument, but a firm trumpe: entrance established order. The second movement of the symphony is long and leisure- ly, and demands sustained mu- sicianship. Although individual sections were frequently play- ed quite well, the movement as a whole seemed to drag on too long and contain just enough flaws in intonation and ensem- ble to distract from the quisite whole. The last movement was an un- qualified success. The orches- tra caught its energetic and basically joyous spirit and turned out some fine ensemble playing. The final orchestra work was Johann Strauss' waltz, Seal fund now at 68 per cent The Lethbridge and District Cinsmen TB Christmas Seal und has reached 68.1 per cent of its objective.

Every aspect of th subtle musicianship require for the basically simple wor was carefully looked after. The second half of the pro gram was a change of pace a well as a change of perform ing groups. The Lethbridgi Symphony Chorus under tin able direction of Walte Goerzen sang a variety o works ranging from Bayreut to Broadway. The first group include; Deep River. The Eyes of Al Wait Upon Thee by Berger an< Hail Bright Abode by Wagner Despite the lack of men (onlj throe tenors) the chorus sanj wdth good balance and blend Occasional forcing could be de tected in the tenor and bass sections, and the highest so prano notes evidenced some tightness. Of the three the Berger work was the best per- formed. Guest soloist soprano Katie Johnson appeared next on the program with three selections [rom the Youth's Magic Horn by Mahler. Miss Johnson displayed a "ine musicianship coupled with i lively and expressive per- ionality capable of captivating lie audience. Her voice clear and flexible and appears -0 have considerable potential. It was unfortunate that the piano lid was raised and the resulting increase in sound caused some cov.ering of the Joyous Christmas Song by Javaert, Glory to God in the fighest by Pergolesi and Do You Hear What I Hear by ligney formed the next group )y the chorus. Articulation in the Pergolesi was not always as clear as it should be. Evelyn Mills and Mary Thomson were featured nest in two duets. Their two voices, bolh dark in color, made an ef- fective blend. The evening ended with the chorus singing selections from Rodgcrs and Hammerstein. There is no doubt that the au- dience went away well-enter, tained.
