Rebellious Italian towii seethes REGGIO CALABRIA, Italy (AP) Angry townspeople fired on police today as rebel- lious Reggio Calabria seethed over the Calabrian assembly's vote naming the rival city of Catanzaro the regional capital. The compromise approved by the assembly early today named Reggio the seat of the legislature, but the people of Reggio wanted the pride and profit of having the entire new regional government in their city. Police Chief Emilio Santillo said a youth was wounded when several shots were fired at po- lice removing a barricade in the Koarve district. He said his men did not return the fire. As a three-week-long general strike continued and tense policemen and caribinieri were kept on full alert in the city, the townspeople packed the cafes, cursed the central government in Rome and debated hotly whether to continue the protest activity. Rome selected Catanzaro over its poorer but larger neighbor last June when Calabria and 19 other regions were set up to de- centralize the Italian govern- ment. Rioting began in Reggio soon afterward and has resulted in five deaths and injury to hundreds. General strikes and other disruptions have occurred.

ANNUAL DINNER MEETING Wednesday, February 17, at 7 p.m. SVEN ERICKSEN'S FAMILY RESTAURANT Scarlet and Gait Rooms PRESIDENT'S REPORT Mrs. Allister Findlay President, Lethbridge YWCA GUEST SPEAKER MRS. ROBERT HUMAN of Calgary Y.W.C.A. of Canada World Council Member The year 1970 was a very significant for. YWCA in Canada 05 we celebrated our 100th anni- versary. Growing from a small number of women who met in St. John, New Brunswick, in 1870, to a nation- wide movement of members, the is involved in an enormous range of activities here in Canada ond throughout the world. As a part of this organization, the local branch here in Lethbridge looks forward to entering the next one hundred years with a spirit of dedication and service. We must look ahead to the future and to a world of change and challenge. The year 1970 was one of many changes in our local association with the implementing of new ideas and plans. Change in our staff structure was made necessary with the retirement of our Executive Director, Mrs. K. Lancaster, last June. Mrs. S. J. Cicon, who, as Administrative Secretary, has capably carried on the office duties, ond Mrs. P. Slobodian, whom we hired as Program Director in November, are invaluable staff members. In addition, we have three full and five part time paid staff, most of whom have been with us during the past year. Early in July, we acquired the services of Mr. Adrian Berry of Calgary as a part-time consultant. Mr. Berry had been working with Ihe Y.W.C.A. in Calgary for three years during their building campaign and has a very valuable background of Y.W.C.A. procedures. He made several trips to Lethbridge during the summer and fall, meeting with all our committees. Board and Advisory Board to formulate a Plan of Action with a five year projection which we will implement as soon as the necessary funds are available. We gratefully acknowledge Mr. Berry's invaluable assistance. The Residence Committee had a most rewarding and busy year under the chairmanship of Mrs. D. Bagozzi. We had vacancies during the summer months, partly due to the unemployment situation; there is room for 35 girls. During the year we have been most fortunate in the response to appeals to local service clubs. The Y has benefited by receiving new furniture from the Gyro Club for the room that bears their name. A gas dryer for the use of the girls was donated by the Laleeview Lions Club and installed free of charge by Baxter's, a forty-place setting of dishes wos donated by the Sigma Cheater, Beta Sigma Phi, new kitchen floor, tile and appliances and some renovations to the kitchen from the Rotary Club, 5200.00 from Beta Sigma Phi to be used to purchase articles most needed in the Residence. The Sigma Delta Chi donated a sum of money for their room; also numerous other gifts of furnishings, lamos, bedding, etc., are gratefully acknowledged. One of the major improvements to the residence must be credited to the girls themselves who renovated part of the old basement for their own use. They painted and dec- orated it, and an assortment of furniture was moved down and a rug was donated. The old application form for registration was revised this year, arid ihs rates for board and room were raised in order to meet inceased cost of living. Curfew hours were also ehanaed. During the first ten months of 1970, the Y.W.C.A. was without a Program Director and existing programs were supervised by volunteers. A special thanks to Mrs. Robert Kasting, who after her return from Sweden, organized and supervised the fail proarams. Community Summer Program was continued, with Mrs. Elaine Ander- son assuming the responsibility for the Y.W.C.A., and a verv successful season was reported. Programs offered in 1970 were seven Blue Triangle clubs for girls 8 to 12, two teen programs for the Junior High girls. Keep Fit and Swim classes for ladies, two junior gymnastic classes, synchronized jwirn club, one English class for new Canadians, and bridge and craft classes. Most classes were successful and well altended. In December, a brief was presented to the Parks and Recreation Commission offering the services and experience of the YWCA to co-operate with them in expanding existing programs for women and girls in the city. Volunteers would continue to work with the organization and op- eration of these programs. The Ways and Means Committee under the efficient supervision of Mrs. R. J. Fairfield operated donated to us. The sale of programs ot the production of 'My Fair Lady' was convened by Mrs. J. Gunn and she and her committee did a most efficient lab Also, a bake sale was held at Centre Village Mall in Decem- Mrs George Willoughby ably chaired the Public Relations Committee. Along with members of this com- mittee, a very effective presentation was compiled from slides of various Y activities and the Residence, taken by volunteers and accompanied by a tape recorded by Mr. Adrian Berry. This was viewed by more than 500 people in 26 groups. This committee handled the publi- city for oil major events during the year and also pre- pared a news letter for the general membership. Public relations are a most necessary part of any organization ond the committee did an excellent job of informing the public. Another important emphasis of the Y.W.C.A. is its World Service committee under the leadership of Mrs. George Gray. Studies of several different countries where we are involved were done and materials were collected and sent to Burma for craft projects there. Funds were raised for the World Service commitment by hold- ing an international Tea in the spring, also two dessert bridges, and books were sold at the New To You Shop. A Membership Tea with Centennial Theme was held early in October. Ladies from the Pemmican Club, in costume, assisted in cutting and serving the birthday cake. Thanks to Mrs. W. Mclntyre who convened this, also to Mrs. W. Hay who served as centennial chairman. An orientation gel-together for new volunteers was held olso. During the year we regretfully accepted the res- ignation of Mrs. Joan Bowmon ond Mrs. Peter Slobodion from the Board of Directors; however, we were pleased to have Mrs. Dwight Jensen join the Board, bringing the number up to 15. The Executive Secretary and my- self were very fortunate to be able to travel to St. John, New Brunswick in October to attend the Annual Meet- ing of the Y.W.C.A. of Canada; this wos on invaluable experience for both of us and we appreciate the Board making this possible. In closing, I would express my sincere thanks to the retiring Board Members, Mesdames Willoughby, Fair- field, Morrison, Gray, Gunn and Olafson, also to the staff and volunteers who hove cheerfully given so many hours of their time. Thanks to the members of the Ad- visory Board, Community Chest, City of Lethbridae, local service clubs. The Lelhbridpe Herald, CJOC, CHEC, CILH-TV, CFCN-TV, all our friends and benefactors, and all those who have heloed us in so many ways during 1970. Looking backward over the past year, it has been one of change and activity and, as President, I feel a sense of satisfaction and look forward to going ahead into 1971 to reach many of Ihc goals we are striving for.
