At a luncheon Wednesday, Lethbridge AMA officials plained the association's plans for the next few weeks. Fred King, chairman of the local AMA, said that while the association "heartily endorses tlie concept of 'Don't drink and experience has taught us that people do take a few so cial drinks over the Christmas season, and do drive their cars." He said the AMA recom- mends that before anyone drives his car away from a party, he check his level of impairment on a breath analv zer. The analyzers cost from 0 to about and apparently are accurate. They sell in most lo- cal drug stores. Mr. King said the AMA his changed the motto of its cam- paign from "Bring 'cm Back Alive" to "Police Yourself" in order to more accurately cope with the realities of UK Chribt mas season drinking habits. "And if motorists will not po- lice themselves, ths police will most ceriainly do it for he said. Mayor Andy Ar.derson told the luncheon he thought the time may have come when "we arc going to have to pass much tougher legislation to control drinking drivers. "Perhaps we might even have to require that as is done in some countries drunken drivers be automatic- ally put in jail."

Word has it the local barotrr- eter dropped to its lowest point in seven years, a bit below 29 inches of mercury, early this morning. This phenomenon is held re- sponsible for corresponding low feelings, or the blues, felt by true believers. The local weather office says the pressure- did net drop that low 1-ere, but in Calgary it pushed the barometer to 28.20 inches of mercury, the lowest point ever recorded in that city. Meteorologists will also ques- [tion Ihe idea that the pressure affects anything but the weatlv cr. The low barometer reading is merely an indication of the depth of'the low pressure cen- tre which passed through Cal- gary. That system is having an af- fect on I-iC'thbridge, however. As it moves east, it allows the Arctic air to move south bringing with it snow and wind, which siiculd reach here by car'y evening. Tra predicted low for tonight is ?.cro and tomorrow's tem- perature should reach 10 to ir> degrees above. So, if you are feeling low, why not blame the weatlier.
