Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 15, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, December 15, 1971 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 7 New life for nearby areas The Edmonton sprawl EDMONTON fCP) The spectacular growth of Edmon- ton is spilling over its outskirts and providing new life for small communities nearby. Edmonton workers, some en- ticed by rural lype living, oth- ers by lower taxes, arc moving to the satellite communities in greater numbers. Three of the towns witnessing new growth are Calmar, Leduc and Devon, all SO minutes or less by car from the capital. "You'd be surprised at the number of people who inquire here about properly and living says Mrs. I. G. Anderson, Calmar's town clerk. "For the most part there just isn't any. About one-third of the 225 family heads in Calmar work outside town, many of them in Edmonton." Mrs. Anderson says many people wiio moved to Calmar were attracted by the availabil- ity of homes and the fact that the town had rczoned some property for mobile homes. WANT TO EXPAND But the supply of available serviced lots is dwindling and the town is waiting lo hear on an application to annex 180 acres. W. A. Bell, secretary-treas- urer of Leduc, says the town's most pressing need is for a bal- ance of industrial assessment that would maintain a low mu- nicipal tax rate. Leduc, he says, enjoys the benefits of servicing a diverse farming industry, of being the centre of a large oilfield and of rapidly becoming a residential CARDSTON Mayfair Theatre "THE CONFESSION" In color.

The town has applied to ere ate a HO-acres industrial park hoping to convince businesses of its intention to become some- thing more than a dormitory town. Engineers predict the 1980 population will be at least compared with at pvesenl. "This will mean we will need 300 acres Mr. Bell said There are only 30 vacant lots left in the old town and about 150 in the new subdivisions There were 146 starts this year. A new trailer park provides 80-by-40 foot lots for use of mo- bile-home owners.

The Music Box Music in the schools By MICHAEL BENNETT Canadian Press Staff Writer Comluclor Simon Slrcntfeild lurns his hack on the casually dressed Vancouver Symphony Orchestra to the applause ac- companying the finale of the William'Tel! Overture and ad- dresses his fidgety audience. "Do you recognize asks Strcatfeild, wincing in antici- pation of (lie response. "The Lone scream a thousand young voices. Classical music has lost an- other round to the cathode ray lube. How do you turn on the turned-on generation to De- bussy, Vivaldi, Rossini and Benjamin Britten? "What I'd like to see in the schools, any school says Steatfoild, admitting his idealism, "is music as a part of their lives and not a special event. "This is where I think we have to get away from this so-called tradition of the con- cert hall. If music is to play a valuable part in children's lives, it must be something they con accept as part of them, which is presented to them in a way that they shouldn't be awe-struck by the thought of going to a sym- phony concert. "It should be something ex- citing, but I don't think it should be something that should be held in reverence. Directly you do that, it means it's possibly unattainable to the average person. "If we had more music in Hie schools, as part of the cur- riculum, it would go a long way to help eliminate this at- titude which does prevail." IMPOSE ADULT HUI.ES On this particular Friday morning, the ground rules for the elementary school pupils to be introduced to exccrpls from the opera Peter Grimes and a colorful selection from La Mer were strictly adult: polite applause and no it for the hockey said a nervous teacher. Slreatfeild likens listening to music to viewing a master- piece by Gauguin or Raphael not the sort of thing you glance at and move on. His greatest success in f.ha classroom has come with string quartets and smaller groups of 10 to 12 players. Tiw kids surround them, see the sounds, and maybe even touch the instruments! Wouldn't a primer on De- bussy's dialogue between the wind and sea from La Mer he more acceptable against a backdrop of National Film Board visuals? "To a says Slreat- feild, "but it's also important to see that music is an art in itself. "I've found with kids' pro- grams that the pieces that go down well are the pieces with lots of color, obviously vivid compositions, not necessarily in wrhat we call the classical era Mozart and Beethoven but the later pieces, Stravin- sky, Debussy and the Russian composers.
