I am, however, an individual and will support good government legislation," A story in Thursday's Herald was creating a wrong impression and was overstated, Mr. Gruenwald said. Lethbridge - and Vancouver is several hundred air miles more. in distance - just because of the existing air transport situation in this area. "We have an interest in your situation and we are prepared to receive a submission from you," said Leonard Basleigh, assistant for special projects Transport Minister Donald Jamieson. Mr. Kotch said the chamber made a submission to Air Canada Sept. 9, 1969 with copies to the MoT, the Canadian Transport Commission and the Air Transport Board requesting that Winnipeg - Vancouver flights stop over in Lethbridge. "We also requested that Air Canada not pull out of Leth- Tuxis youths call for more Canadian business ownership A resolution calling for employee-management co-operation and ownership of Canadian industry was passed by the Tuxis and Older Boys' Parliament in Lethbridge Thursday. The six-day mock parliament attended by about 75 student junior parliamentarians from throughout the province urged the federal government to change existing corporation laws to provide for co-ownership and profit sharing. Neil Hughes, of Calgary, parliamentary minister of archives proposed the government forego nationalization of foreign - owned industry by forcing corporations to offer an ownership sharing program through the sale of stocks to employees. Through this technique, he said, Canadians will eventually gain control of industry. The technique would also stop the current inflationary spiral because unions would eventually fade out of existence as workers controlled their own destinies and production increased. Mr. Hughes said the plan would serve as a method of redistributing wealth while also multiplying it. Don Teeuwsen, of Edmonton, condemned Canadians for be- ing too conservative a n d not willing to invest in Canadian industry. He argued the system outlined was geared for middle-class consumption because poor people already had difficulty surviving without investing their money in industry. Because "Canadians don't believe in themselves" the federal government should nationalize major corporations operating in Canada, he added. Mr. Hughes said his system would insure public ownership without governmental involvement and control. Tuxis also dealt with several other bills. bridge and that PWA be prevented from taking over the Calgary - Lethbridge run," Mr. Kotch said. "We succeeded in stopping PWA, which, if allowed to come in, would only force our local Time Airways out of business, and then find the route non-profitable, leaving Lethbridge with no air service at all. "However, the president of Air Canada said the volume of traffic at that time did not warrant our request," he said. "In fact, if there are 21 passengers, it will break even the operational costs for a DC-9, and we did a survey which showed that at east 21 persons went to Calgary by Air Canada, Time Airways and by driving to catch connecting flights in Calgary." The MoT said since the last representation was made with Air Canada, there was nothing the ministry could do. "Besides, the ministry is primarily responsible only for maintaining safe operations of transport - the rates are determined by the Canadian Transport Commission," said William Dunstan, ministry information officer. However, Mr. Dunstan said Lethbridge could request its airport runway be lengthened - at present it can only accommodate DC-9s part of the year. "We will do that," Mr. Kotch said.

STUBBS Have you been surpised to be asked whether the prescription you've handed us is meant for an adult or for a child? This does occur, occasionally, when there is no notation on the prescription concerning the age classification of the patient. We feel it's impor-t a n t you under- ____stand that we're not just being 'nosey' when we have to ask you for this information. It's important for both of us because a medication dispensed with the understanding it is for use by an adult can be actively dangerous when given in error to a child. All details are important in the practice of pharmacy, and this is one to which we always give special attention. We'll appreciate your understanding why this question can be necessary and why it is so important. Free parking? Of course. Free prescription delivery? Of course. Friendly, helpful service? Of course. Stubbs Pharmacy at 1506 9th Ave. S.? OF COURSE!

In fact, we go so far as to make the equipment that makes the parts. Even the wood gets special treatment. We cure it naturally for as much as 8 years to ovoid internal stresses. Then we dry it in our electronically controlled kilns. Only then does the wood enter the tedious, painstaking process of becoming an organ. It's not that we don't trust outside suppliers. It's lust that in 50 years of making fine organs, we've found we can make any part better than we can buy it. With one exception. And unfortunately there's only one supplier. But then, it's probably all right. He's been iin business even longer than we have. YAMAHA SUPPLIES LTD.  Car. 3rd Ave. and 13th St. 5.
