He and his wife, Inger, have been .tricking each other for years, and he has just perpet- rated what he considers his fin- est scheme. Seven weeks ago his wife and their eight year old daugh- ter, the youngest of four chil- dren, left Lethbridge for Ban- ders, a city in northern Den- mark, to visit for six weeks vdth her father and mother and other relatives whom she hadn't seen since the Maegaards left Denmark 16 years ago. As she was leaving, Jorgen arranged with her to be at her parents' hopr.e between certain hours on a .Saturday afternoon, three weeks later, and he would telephone her from Lethbridge. However, soon after she he arranged some business London and Bremen and, on th appointment Saturday, he wa ?t a friend's place in Rander and with the connivance of ol er people he called her collei "from Lethbridge." He talked with her (though fully asking her to speak loude because of a poor long distanc connection although she s a i she could hear hiir just as i thought the bill was more than high enough, but then he want- ed to talk with their daughter.

Funeral services will be hel Saturday in St. Augustine' Anglican Church at p.m for Howard Bambrick, 63, wh died in the city Wednesday. Mr. Bambrick was manager owner of an insurance busines in the city and in 1969 marl aged the Lethbridge Golf am Country Club. He served overseas in the Second World War with the C, nadian army and was active in the General Stewart Branch 01 the Royal Canadian Legion. During his residence in the city, Mr. Bambrick served on top positions with the Ret Cross, police commission; re ceived a certificate of men from the Legion for long ser- vice, served on the manage- ment committee of the Dorothy Gopder School for Retarded Children and was one of the driving forces behind the Wal- ter Callow Coach in Leth- bridge.

Denmark is thriving, the li ing standard is high, but Cana dians are much better off, he concluded after spending a cou pie of weeks in his native coun try.' Canadian taxes may be higl but not in comparison wit! much of Europe. Food and en entertainment costs are m u c h higher there, he reports. An eye ning at a good Lethbridge res taurant is much more econo- mical. Danish beer, in fact costs less in Lethbridge than in Denmark. He said it is a mistake to as- sume the complete absence oi film censorship is expressed mainly in an increase in porno- graphic films. The Danish film industry is producing a good deal of exciting and innovative material with little or no porno- graphic intent, which is attri- butable to the climate of filr freedom. Heart drive plans made Plans were formulated re- cently, to expand the business canvass of the 1971 Lethbridge heart fund drive to be held the 'irst few days of February, 1971. LaVar Payne, business chair- man for the Lethbridge cam- >aign, said this year a more determined appeal will be made to the professions. Mr. Payne said, in the last fear, the Alberta Heart Foun- dation has devoted more money to heart research than my other province in Canada ther than Ontario. for 1971 Preliminary budget released Lcthbridge's 1971-1975 liminary capital budget pre- lists total requirements of for next year and :i total bor- rowing capacity for the year of The budget, released by Tom Nutting, city manager, has cap- ital works to be undertaken next year totalling but to this is added that still must be borrowed to pay for ihe city's secondary sewage treatment facilities. Financing for these funds may be arranged through the Alberta Municipal Financinj Corporation or through Centra Mortgage and Housing Corpor- ation. Allister Findlay, finance di- rector, notes in the budget pre- amble that if the sewage de- benture debt is considered as a utility, the city is well within generally established guide- lines for the amount of debt a city should incur. Total general debt charges for 1970 amounted to 21 per cent of the total tax levy, but if sanitary sewers, sewage dis- posal and secondary treatment are excluded the figure drops to 14 per cent. The guidelines recommend annual snd interest charges not exceeding 20 per cent of tile total tax levy. Financing of the deficit on the sewage facilities remains to be worked out. Rep- resentation to the provincial cabinet for some form of as- sistance is to be made in Janu- ary. Aside from the usual public works programs, the. only major capital expense b'sted for 1971 is for repairs to :he Henderson Lake pool, which has been losing water for some time. Lost water through leakage has cost about a ye and has been spent rar in repairs.

The theme Police Yourself suggests that motorists who have been drinking should take it upon themselves to ensure they are capable of driving be- fore getting behind the wheel. John Rhodes, southern Al- berta manager of the AMA, speaking for AMA chairman R. L. Jardine, said it boils down to an awareness on the part of drivers that alcohol does seri- ously impair the ability to op- erate a motor vehicle. It also should give them an awareness of their individual responsibil- ity to protect the lives and safe- ty of themselves and other ci- tizens. Pension sessions Meetings designed to answer queries on the Canada Pension 3lan, old age security and the guaranteed income supplement ivill be held in Blairmore, Dec. 17 and Pincher Creek, Dec. 18. Fieldman G. R. Stewart, will attend the meetings to answer questions and to provide as- sistance in the filing of appli- cations for benefits received mder these programs. The Blairmore meeting will >e at 10 a.m. in the federal milding and the Pincher Creek meeting at 9 a.m. in the town hall. test to determine the percent- age of alcohol in the blood stream. Mr. Rhodes said the adage "don't drink and drive" is still the best, but experience has shown it just doesn't get the message to the public. The policy of the AMA re- garding alcohol and vehicles is "If you do drink, and find that you must drive, at the very least take all possible precau- tions to ensure your safe ar- rival home." As part of the campaign, the AMA has a limited supply of mobile breath alcohol testers available to the public at cost. They sell for ?1.75. Mr. Rhodes said various testers are avail- able throughout the city and they vary in cost and in ac- curacy. "In all cases they should be used as a guide for responsible actions to ensure safe driving conditions." The AMA has given the Uni- versity of Alberta to re- search breathalyzers in an ef- fort to improve the testing ap- paratus. The present breathaly- zers give an accurate figure for what they test but they leave doubts in some areas such as body weight and men- tal conditions. Mr. Rhodes said drivers should not gamble with their lives or their operator's li- cence. They should temper so- cializing with common sense. Four youths plead guilty The annual fad of destroying festive season decorations has started in the city. Four local youths appeared in mag- istrate's court Wednesday to answer to charges of theft un- der The four pleaded guilty to stealing a flood light from a lawn in the city Dec. 4, and .hey were remanded for one week for a presentence report. Magistrate Lloyd Hudson said he could think of no rea- son why one person or a group of people would have to tamper with private property used "by :itizens during the festive sea- on to decorate their homes. The reason given for stealing he light was: "We thought we d use it."
