Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 11, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta ]4 TW UTMMOOI KHUIO Itenfey, MHMTT II, No change seen in pork prices By STEVE BAREHAM Henld Farm Writer Canadian hog producers can expect no improvement in pork prices until late in 1971, said Wayne Smith, of Hillspring, southern director of the Alber- ta Hog Producers Marketing Board. Mr. Smith was speaking at the firt annual meeting of the Alberta Hog Producers Mar- keting Board, held in Leth- bridge Tuesday. He said original price pre- dictions of per hundred weight (dressed Calgary) may be overly optimistic in view of the current United States sit- uation. "Expectations for summer strengthening of prices is small, and significant price im- provement should not be look- ed for until the last quarter of the he said. The total Alberta hog pro- duction for the year ending Dec. 31, 1970 was an increase of hogs over 1969. The averarge price re- ceived for hogs during the pe- riod was per hundred weight, (dressed.) Mr. Smith said producers have now realized they are in a surplus position and indica- tions are that they will be cut- ting back on production. "Sow slaughterings in Alber- ta increased 61 per cent in the AA members to honor founder Southern Alberta members of Alcoholics Anonymous and friends will converge on Leth- bridge Sunday for memorial services for Bill Wilson, co- founder of AA. Bill W., as he was known by AA members until his recent death, and the late Dr. Bob (Dr. Robert Smith) joined forces in 1935 and started the organiza- tion which has helped hundreds of thousands of drunks and problem drinkers find and maintain sobriety. Total AA membership now is 'estimated at more than men and women in 92 countries. There are more than AA groups in the world. Southern Alberta members will be joining thousands around the w o r 1 d Sunday to honor the man who was instru- mental in helping them find sobriety. The memorial service will be held in the Southern Al- berta Chapter House in L e t fa- bridge at 11 a.m. AA is a fellowship of men aid women who share their ex- periences, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from .alcoholism. The only require- '.ment for membership is a de- sire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for AA mem- .bership. The organization is self supporting through member contributions. Jaycees' award night February 23 The Lethbridge Junior Cham- ber of Commerce has sched- uled its annual awards night Feb. 23, at in the Marquis Hotel. The meeting will be highlight- ed by the presentation of the Jaycee's Young Man of the Year Award. SMILEY'S PLUMBING CUSS LINED WATER HEATERS AND UP Phone 328-2176 last half of 1970. however we cannot be too optimistic be- cause the latest U.S. hog statis- tics which snow the largest pig crop in history, indicate Cana- dian prices will be under greater pressure than was ori- ginally anticipated." "Expected U.S. marketings will run at 21 per cent over last year until March, said Mr. Smith, and then at 25 per cent over last year for April through June." Some analysts believe that this level of marketings will push U.S. prices to the per hundredweight (live) range, said Mr. Smith. In the meantime, Alberta hog producers are making ef- forts to sell all the pork they can. Early in 1970 the board ini- tiated a promotion program for Alberta pork. Market research was undertaken to determine present markets for Alberta pork, and consumer market problems for pork were studied and evaluated. After comple- tion of the preliminary re- search, the board approached the provincial government for help and received a grant to help launch the pro- gram. Mr. Smith said the initial objective of the promotion campaign was to educate the housewife in new ways to use pork products and to correct misconceptions about pork. _ While the board carried out its campaign, it simultaneously had a research program being carried out to evaluate the ef- fectiveness of the program. While the research has not yet been fully compiled, prelim- inary reports increase in pork consumption in the test area of 23-35 per cent. Mr. Smith said the board is now to the process of launching another promotion, using radio announcements throughout the month of February, a newspa- per campaign throughout March and April, and another newspaper campaign dur- ing the summer months, board estimates they The will spend on this endeavor. Site for homes shoiv considered A delegation from the Leth- bridge House Builders Associa- tion met with the Municipal Planning Commission Wednes- day to discuss the possibility of using an area in north Leth- bridge as the site of the 1971 parade of homes. Under consideration is an area east of 13th St. and north of 18th Ave. N.. north of Win- ston Churchill High School. A problem was installation of services before the show homes were opened to late August or early September. Various alter- natives were discussed and it was decided a solution could be worked out between the asso- ciation and the city administra- tion. An assoc i a 11 o n spokesman said about 15 to 20 builders will be involved in the show this year, which will emphasize low- cost smaller homes.

Pianist-composer 'accomplished? both as creator and performer By DEAN BLAIR Pianist composer Harold Zabrack displayed his wares as both creator and performer in a University of Lethbridge Concert Series presentation at the Yates Memorial Centre Wednesday night and left no doubt that he is accomplished in both areas. In a bit of program juggling he began the concert with a work just written two days ago' entitled Landscape. Even this short work evidenced the musi- cal sensitivity which charac- terizes Mr. Zabrach's abilities both in performance and com- positional style. The second work of the eve- ning which was later perform- ed again as the closing work of the program was Mr. Za- brach's Sonata No. 1, a four- movement work written in 1965 and characterized by emotion- al contrasts and panoramic colors. Mr. Zabrach's composi- tional style is somewhat eclec- tic but well integrated by his innate musicianship and com- positional technique! Though his musical gestures are large- ly emotional and romantic in style, his writing technique is strongly based on 20th cen- tury procedures. His works, of course, are well-written for the piano and especially suited to his rather physical approach to the instrument. The central group of works on the program consisted of two Debussy Preludes: La Cathedrals Engloutie and Feux d'Artifice, and short works by Brahms and Palmgren. The performance of Feux d'Artifice (fireworks) was just that and proved that Mr. Zabrach in no way lacked tech- nical agility. The Consolation in D flat by Liszt was beauti- fully shaped with carefully, con- trofled rhythmic nuances and rubato. The Brahms Inter- mezzo hi A Major, Op. 118, No. 2 was projected with the same subtle musicianship as the Liszt, but the unusually slow tempo made it nearly impos- 30-siiite apartment okayed A building permit was taken out Wednesday for a 30 suite apartment at 1607 Scenic Heights. The apartment, to be built by G. R.

The styl i s t i c modifications were requested by the Munici- pal Planning Commission in or- der to avoid having two identi- cal apartments in the same area. Home businesses approved The Municipal Planning Com- mission Wednesday approved five home occupation business applications. One was for the sale of tropi- cal fish and equipment, another for an accountant and tax con- sultant office, the others for phone services for various bus- inesses. Once again the commiss i o n discussed the problems associ- ated with home occupation bus- inesses storing materials on the premises or in the yard. No de- cision was reached, although Alder man C. W. Chichester mentioned that the question would probably come up again when a general review of the situation was undertaken. Chairman Joe Balla said the review, which has been in (he work s for some time, was awaiting the preparation of a new bylaw. sible to retain any real musi- cal continuity in performance. The final work of this group was The Sea by the little- known composer Palmgren. The work was well conceived for the piano and displayed _ lin the performer's ample technique in performance. Following intermission Mr. Zabrach performed another of his own works, Five Contours. These five short movements were somewhat freer in struc- ture than the sonata and show- ed occasional impressionistic traces in nuance and color. The fourth movement entitled Poi- gnant seemed a bit out of place stylistically and sounded more like a romantic character- piece than a movement from a contemporary work. The final Toccata of tie work created a convincing closing movement showing off both the com- poser's ability to write for and perform on the piano. Two-day School of Religion in city Friday and Saturday Clergymen and laity of all religious denominations are in- vited to attend a two-day School of Religion this week at McKUlop United Church. The school, to run all day Friday and Saturday morning, is being sponsored by the Al- berta conference of the United Church of Canada. The main theme of the ev- ent will be a study of the re- lationship between social con- ditions and personal problems, and community mental health.. Major speaker will be Dr. Lynwood Walker, an author and currently assistant profes- sor of religion and personality Four-suiters turned doivn Applications from Eugene Welterlich Construction for two four suite apartments at 3404 and 3408 Spruce Drive hi south- east Lethbridge were turned down by the Municipal Plan- rung Commission Wednesday. Refusal was made on the grounds the lots were too small and would be suitable only for duplexes. Also refused was an applica- tion from J. A. Danielson for a used car lot at 139 13th St. N. Again, the mam reason for re- fusal was inadequate lot size. Approved were applications from R. G. Rittenhouse for farm machinery dealership and ren- tal businesses at 421 33rd St. N. and 405 33rd St. N. Also given the okey was an application to build a small metal clad building at South- ern Feeds Ltd., at 3227 2nd Ave. N. The commission had been concerned last week that the shed might cause traffic prob- lems during unloading opera- tions, but a complete plan for the plant showed this would not be the case. at the Graduate Theological Union in Vancouver. About 60 persons from south Alberta are expected to attend the school, me first ever held in Lethbridge by the U n i t e d Church. Interested persons may ob- tain further information by calling McKillop church, 328- 2703. Research man meets eastern farm officials P. E. Blakeiey, information officer, Lethbridge research Station, left Wednesday for Ot- tawa where he will confer with officials of the Canada depart- ment of agriculture. Mr. Blakeiey will also stop over Feb. 15-19 to Arnprior, Chit., where he will attend an agricultural emergency plan- ning course being conducted by the department of national defence. Highway work may be delayed Alberta Highways Minister Gordon Taylor, in response to a letter from tha Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce, said work on Highway 3 is "not fa- vorable" at this time. He said it would be nice if the highway could have the shoulders widened but he couldn't say if work would go ahead this yeas'. He said the highway now can carry the heaviest weight in the province, implying other areas have greater priority. North Plaza Florist 618 13th Street N. PHONE 327-1212 SPECIALS!

PRICED AT 10M The second hearing of the Piano Sonata as the final work of the evening reconfirmed Mr. Zabrach's abilities as pianist and composer. His works seem to strike a healthy balance be- ;ween the complexities of con- temporary compositional tech- niques and intelligible music. VALENTINE ARRANGEMENTS MIXED FLOWERS Priced at 8 The progress of the Com- munity Leadership and Human Relations Workshop at the Friendship Centre this was termed 'above expectations." Rose Yellow Feet, director of the centre, said the main point brought to the attention of the 51 registered participants was the need for community in- volvement and interaction to lessen the conflict among dif- ferent groups of people. She said the most interesting point brought out the first day was that there is little com- munication between native and non-native people. "The discussion snowed na- tives do have trouble com- municating with other natives, but in the same way non-na- tives have trouble communi- cating with other non-natives. "It was decided the com- munication gap was evident on a total community scale." Sae said by getting the total community the thinking process which tends to separate races, will be overcome and people will be able to work together. "This is the purpose of friendship centres in the prov- ince to provide a bridge to close the communication gap and get the community think- ing on one plane. The first day of the workshop involved acquainting partici- pants with the workshop's aims and objectives. The suc- cess of this was evident with the great amount of interaction within the group in the after- noon sessions, said Mrs. Yel- low Feet. Communication was by 0. A. TurobuU, the mate re- source penon for the tint day. "The of cominiBi- cation was shown in a practical nature by the response of tht registered people to the meth- ods used by Mr. TumbuII."
