A study of the valley's poten- tial was undertaken last sum- mer by Neil Andrew, a con- sultant hired by the parks and recreation department. The final version ol the report is ex- pected to be finished soon.

Another is listed for construction of a campground and trailer park, possibly in West Lethbridge, in 1974. This development may be under- taken by a private firm, but is shown in the budget in case it becomes necessary for the city to step in. Provision of services for West Lethbridge is another major item in the budget. About million is shown for sewers, water mains, a reser- voir and roads for 1971. A 000 fire and in roads are planned for 1973. Repairs to Henderson Lake pool are planned for next year; ered pool are in the budget for 1972.

Saddles, rifles, buckles sculptures and steer horns, are just a sampling of the great va- riety of forms trophies take, and consistent winners soon have quite a selection. Despite the acquisition of so many awards, all four cowboys will be back in the rodeo arenas next spring in a quest to add more silverware to their al- ready-impressive collections. Former Canadian all-round champion Harold Man- deville and his wife Pearl of Lethbridge have a house full of trophies and mementos of their rodeo careers. Harold's name first appeared in the listings of Canadian champions in 1946 when he won the steer decorating crown. He has won a total of eight Cana- dian titles five steer decorat- ing (steer wrestling in later years) crowns, one bareback, one calf roping and one all round title. It wasn't until the early 1950s that the Canadian Hodeo Cow- boys Association started to give saddles to its champions. Despite this, Harold has managed to accumulate no less than 13 saddles. He has also earned 40 tro- phies. They include plaques, lamps, suitcases, a lighted pic- ture, and "regular" trophies. Harold counts 10 watches, 30 works programs, is another for the river valley. Projects listed for 1975, or later, include for a new city hall, a figure put in to indicate the need for a new facility, and for a new Henderson Lake pavilion.

Cam Bracken, regional of- fice director, says the program offered through the newly-estab- lished position of employment opportunity worker should be going well by that time. Mrs. Frances Hude, who has been a social worker in the of- fice for some time, has been transferred to the new post. She has taken a. special train i n g course in Calgary to prepare her for her duties. Her job consists mainly in working closely with unem- ployed persons and employers in order to place people in jobs and ensure that as many as possible remain working. Most of her work will be done with unemployed those persons who are capable of working but who, for some reason, have been unable to find work and keep it. The department's policy for some years has been to refer employable persons who apply for assistance to the Canada Manpower Centre, and this pol- icy will be continued.

The office also attempts to give the person some training in how to go about applying for a job. A common problem for pei-sons looking for work is a lack of knowledge about how to approach a prospective em- ployer. Mr. Bracken said there was a definite need for the new pro- gram. The number of unemploy- ed employables in the region, which includes most of the southern part of the province, had risen from a low of 50 in June, 1967 to about 200 at pres- ent. He did, however, have a word of caution about public expec- tations for the success of any program of this nature. "We arc naive if we think any- thing is going to be a complete cure for unemployment. There has been rapid technologi c a 1 change and many people sim- ply are not equipped for it and cannot be expected to acquire the needed training. We must have some comp a s s i o n for these people." TO SYMBOLIZE FOND MEMORY Choose wisely the monu- ment lo honor your loved ones. We will bo pleased to assist you.

City ivarns citizens on salesmen The city's licence office has asked Lethbridge residents to keep a watchful eye on door-to- door salesmen operating in the city during the Christmas sea- son. A spokesman for the office says all salesman are required to have two licences one pro- vincial and one issued by the city. The best way to make sure the salesman represents a leg- itimate business, says the spo- kesman, is to ask to see both licences before buying any- thing.

Arnold's wife Kaye is a former Miss Rodeo Canada. Arnold has won seven trophy saddles, five of which he in- tends to mount on his wall. He uses the ether two. The Haraga home at Skiff also contains 19 belt buckles, two watches and 20 trophies, plus one set of steer horns which he won this year. Arnold is justly proud of the Charlie Beil sculpture that he won at the Calgary Stampede the world bareback standings. Malcolm ranches in the Vaux- hall area as well as following the rodeo circuit. He says he intends someday to build a display rack for his saddles or perhaps convert some of them into bar stools. Also in the Jones' collection are 40 or more belt buckles, and three rifles, two of them special Centennial rifles.
