The council is urging party hosts to serve drinks to all drivers in moderation, on the average no more dan one drink per hour.

A legal blocd alcohol eon- tent of .08 still means a driver's chances of causing an accident are five times more than normal. Alberta Safety Council gen- eral manager. R. P. Lawrence' said the best way to avoid trou- ble is to refrain from drinking. "If one does drink, limit them to one drink per hour and then Inks out prog wait at least one hour after the last one before dri1 in0 said Mr. Lawrence.

Games, dancing and other activities will take the central focus from alcohol consump- tion and a variety of party snacks, followed by something hot and filling near the end of the evening, will go a long way to ensure the guests will arrive home safely. "A good way to help people remain in control of their drinking if they will he driving later is to close the bar an hour or so before people begin to said Mr. Lawrence BURN TREATMENT The Canadian Red Cross uses donated blood to derive the blood byproduct, serum album- in used by medical teams in the treatment of cxtens i v e burns and shock.
