Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 6, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 - THE IETHBR1DGE HERALD - Tuesday, February 6, 1973 Concert to start mental health fund-raising drive The Canadian Mental Health Association, which withdrew from the Lethbridge United Appeal last year, will be holding its own fund-raising campaign.. A fund-raising concert has been set for March 8 and a door-to-door canvass scheduled for the first week of May, says Lola Wall, the association's executive officer. The objective of this year's campaign is $14,000, she said. "We need 500 canvassers," Mrs. Wall said. "We have lined up 70 so far. People willing to work as canvassers are requested to contact us at 327-0100." The concert will be held at the Yates Centre at 8 p.m. with the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra performing. Tickets are obtainable at Leister's Music. Velva Hiney of Iron Springs, a member of the CMHA's Southern Alberta region, has been appointed publicity chairman for this year's campaign. The CMHA withdrew from the United Appeal because it could not get as much money as it required. Association president Dennis O'Conncll said the CMHA needed at least $10,000 a year from the United Appeal but was told that amount could not be promised. Last year, the CMHA was given only $2,000, he said. "We had no choice but to withdraw," Mr. O'Connell said. Thieves take TVs. smokes Three break-ins last night netted thieves two television sets, 20 eight-track tapes, 25 cartons of cigarettes, and some cash.

At Superior Gulf, on 18th St. and 3rd Ave., a case containing eight-track tapes was broken and 20 tapes were taken. And Acme TV, 535 13th St. N. lost two television sets, one valued at $500, and $20 in silver after thieves gained entry through a boarded-up window. Police investigation is continuing. CANADA COUNCIL TO VIEW LOCAL ART A representative from the Canada Council will visit the University of Lethbridge February 19 to view works of art by local artists. Luke Rombout, will view the art and may consider the purchase of some for the* Council's art bank project. Submissions are sought in such mediums as paint, sculpture, printmaking and drawing. The arts should be brought to the U of L by February 16, and all should be labelled with name of the artist, address, style, type of medium and price. All artists must collect their works of art from the U of L art department February 20, after Mr. Rombout's visit. The Canada Council is viewing art because it is attempting to build up a "bank" of works by professional Canadian artists. The work will be for rental to departments and agencies of the federal government. Up to $5 million will be spent on the project in the next five years. A sculpture by Jeff Olson, U of L art instructor, has recently been purchased by the council. r SIMPSONS-SEARS SEWING MACHINE RENTAL Lots of mending to do? A wadding soon? A yen to be creative?

Telephone 328-9231 Or Drop In At Simpsons-Sears, Centre Village Mall For Complete Details RCMP Centennial Fund details expected soon The Association for Historical Productions is holding a meeting tonight to elect officers and discuss proposals for the RCMP centennial celebrations. Preparations for the centennial celebrations are gaining weight, says Frank Smith, executive vice-president of the Travel and Convention Association of Southern Alberta. He said in addition to tonight's meeting of the AHP at Civic Sports Centre at 7:30, the provincial government is expected to announce "very shortly" details of its special RCMP Centennial Fund. The Alberta Historical Society is also holding its annual meeting in Lethbridge Saturday on which the centennial is expected to be discussed, Mr. Smith pointed out. Mr. Smith, who was in Edmonton Sunday attending a meeting of the provincial tourist association, said he understood the government is ready to release details of the centennial fund for use from 1973 to 1975. "The main celebrations are for 1974, the year the North Promotion group for south iormed Slicker slide Snow is what Douglas Von Chorus, 5, of 2312 5th Ave. A N. has been waiting for since early in the year and now that it's returned, he's taking full advantage of it. The snow acts both to increase the speed of the slide and to soften the impact at slide's end. Tourist industry representatives from Southern Alberta and British Columbia will form a Crowsnest Inter-Provincial Highway Association to promote Highway 3 from Medicine Hat to Hope, B.C. An exploratory meeting was held in- Fernie, B.C., on the weekend. It was attended by 20 representatives, including seven from Southern Alberta communities-Blairmore, Wat-erton, Fort Macleod and Taber. Representatives from Lethbridge and Medicine Hat were absent. The group will meet again on April 28 in Fernie, said Norm Frankish of Fernie, owner of the Three Sisters Motel and acting chairman of the group. Tlie proposed association will press the Alberta and B.C. governments to upgrade Highway 3 and promote it as the Southern Trans-Canada Highway and an alternative to the Trans-Canada Highway, Mr. Frankish said. "We also want to compete with the Yellowhead Inter-Provincial Highway" which runs from Lloydminster, Alta., to Prince George, B.C.," he said. Larry King, manager of the Fort Macleod Museum and a delegate to the Fernie meet- ing, said Highway 3 "has more to offer than the Yellowhead." Frank Smith of Lethbridge, executive vice - president of the Travel and Convention Association of Southern Alberta, said Highway 3 "is the shortest scenic drive to the coast." Mr. Smith was ill and did not attend the meeting. Mr. Frankish said tourists will find "the Crowsnest historically richer than the Yellowhead." West Mounted Police arrived in Alberta," he said. "But funds will also be available, I understand, for preparations this year and for the Calgary, centennial in 1975," the centennial of the NWMP arrival in Calgary. Mr. Smith, also a founding member of the AHP, said tonight's meeting is open to the public and "any one can put forward his or her ideas about the RCMP centennial." The annual meeting of the Alberta Historical Association will be held at Sven Ericksen's Family Restaurant Saturday and between 50 and 60 provincial delegates are expected to attend, says Alex Johnston, president of the Lethbridge Historical Association. "I expect the RCMP centennial will come up for discussion at the annual meeting," Mr. Johnston said. "In fact, our association, in conjunction with the University of Lethbridge, will be holding a conference on the RCMP's history in May 1974." Southern Alberta's proposals for the centennial celebrations include a pageant called The Sight, The Sound and The Fury, Mr. Smith said. "Paralleling the meetings in Southern Alberta are meetings held elsewhere in the province in connection with the RCMP centennial," he said. ".'So we are moving ahead."

"We did it because we felt it was a disgrace for a city of our size not to have a band with decent uniforms," he said. "I'm sure people who have been associated with the LCI will agree that this is something worthwhile." Donations can be sent to Ken Sauer, LCI principal, he said.
