Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 25, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 LETHBRIDQE HERALD- Monday, February 25, 1074 That's no way to wash your face The pain of it all. Bruce Cousins grimaces as a wet sponge hurdles his way. Impact isn't all that bad as the thrower was off target. Any of Bruce's 'friends" could have had a throw at the Fourth Annual Scout, Guide, Cub and Brownie Penny Carnival held Saturday at the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute. About 800 persons took part in the carnival. Proceeds will go to promote scouting and guiding in developing countries. TV set explodes; fire injures Foremost couple Disabled to press gov't on building legislation By GEOFF TAGG Herald Correspondent FOREMOST (HNS) A television set which "exploded like a bomb" caused extensive damage to the home of Mr. and Mrs. Jim Baker of Foremost shortly after midnight Sunday.

They were in bed at about a.m. Sunday when suddenly the new black and white television set, which had been left on, exploded, showering pieces of metal and glass all over the living room and adjoining bedroom and started a fire. Mr. Baker attempted to put out the fire with a fire extinguisher, but was hampered by his wife who was in a state of shock, and refused to leave the house. Mr. Baker ran to the neighboring home of Mr. and Mrs. Emil Laqua, pounded on the door and yelled that the house was on fire and that his wife refused to leave. Isabel Laqua raised the alarm. Foremost's volunteer firemen were almost all at a wedding dance in the Community Hall, right next to FURNACES (IN STOCK) SHEET METAL WOW POWER HUMMERS Carrjer 814-4MSU. 1327-MU the fire hall. Dancing partners were left in mid-step as the men, bolstered by a number of willing helpers and anxious onlookers, raced to the scene, to be there within three minutes of the alarm being given Corporal Egli of the Foremost RCMP detachment was returning from Manyberries and drove into Foremost as the alarm was given. He raced to the scene. Mrs. Baker still refused to leave her smoke-filled home as firemen Les Walsh and Norman Williams with breathing apparatus, entered the house. They removed Mrs. Baker from the bedroom through a window, and she was wrapped in blankets and put into a nearby car in Mrs. Laqua's charge. Mr. Baker meanwhile assisted firemen in locating the source of the blaze. Within a short time the fire fighters had the blaze well tinder control and proceeded, with the help of volunteers, to remove smouldering furniture from the building. Shortly after a.m. Fire Chief George Rarick declared everything under control, and the fire truck returned to Che fire hall. Members of the fire brigade returned to finish off the dance. The couple were taken to the home of Mr. and Mrs. Laqua, but were later transferred by ambulance to hospital. An examination of the shattered house in the dawn light of Sunday morning showed the desL-action in the living room to be complete. Window and door frames are burnt out, and there is extensive smoke and water damage throughout the house. The physically handicapped in Alberta will be pressing the government to include in upcoming building code legislation provisions for the physically handicapped. Jean Battell, social mobilizer for the Alberta Committee of Action Groups, says the committee wants the government to make sure; public buildings are accessible to all handicapped people.

PhoM 32I-21M A seventh ward has been added to the roll of Lethbridge Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, making the Lethbridge stake one of Canada's largest. The stake includes the City of Lethbridge and extends two miles east of Coaldale, eight miles south of Lethbridge. to Stavely and Vulcan to the north and far as the Crowsnest Pass on the west. Members attending the quarterly Lethbridge, Alberta stake conference on the weekend sustained creation of the ward. Boundaries have been revised for four congregations, explained stake president Bryce Stringam. Third ward in the southeast corner is bounded by Mayor Magrath Drive, Henderson Lake Blvd. and South Parkside Drive. The new seventh ward has the same southern boundaries with the railway tracks the northern divider. Fifth ward serves North Lethbridge with BE HONEST WITH YOUR HEALTH Too often, people will try to convince them- selves that very evident symptoms of an illness do not really exist or will disappear if they will just forget about them. This type of attitude can only lead to more serious problems in the long run. A disease in its earliest stages is usually much easier to treat and cure. Never be afraid to find out about something that is bothering you. Most often your doctor win be able to diagnose your problem quickly. Then, not only will you be feeling better physically but you will have great mental" relief as well. Alimony is like making the payments on your car after irs been wrecked. DRAFFIN'S DISPENSARY AND DOWNTOWN FREE CITY WIDE Handicapped await word on gov't aid Alberta's physically handicapped may know within a month whether the government will assist them in the purchase of special devices such as wheelchairs, special shoes and drugs. Gerald Trechka of Lethbridge, a member of the Alberta MLA-handicapped joint committee, says the five members of the legislature on the committee are investigating the need and possible implementation of health care changes. The MLA's, also reviewing the cost of special devices, "We are worried regulations governing building access for the handicapped will only be added as an appendix for information and not she said. The committee wants the provincial government to add to its legislation "supplement No. 5" of the national building code which covers building standards for handicapped people. The committee must present its case and get action before April when the bill will be made law. The regulations in the bill, which govern provisions including fire, electricity and accessibility, have not been passed. sixth ward cutting out the northwest corner in an area bounded by 7th Avenue N. and 23rd Street N. A ward is a local congregation; a stake is the district administrative body. There are nearly members in Lethbridge stake which now comprises seven wards and a student branch within the city and seven wards and one branch in surrounding communities.

Leonard Burbank, former bishop of sixth becomes bishop of fifth ward. The new congregation will share meeting space with first and second ward bo the 10th Avenue S. chapel. ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL VECHAMC Phone 328-409: A review Trio a blend of youth, maturity will be meeting with officials of handicapped groups and associated agencies during the first half of March to discuss their findings. The MLA's are now talking with professional people to get opinions and find whether needed changes have to be done through amendments to the Alberta Health Care Insurance Act or the cabinet, he explains. "All the members of the committee seem in agreement some action is needed to help the handicapped with the cost of special Mr. Trechka By PAT ORCHARD The One Third Ninth Trio, comprised of Moishe Hammer, a violinist from Israel, Gloria Saarinen, a pianist from New Zealand, and John Kadz, a cellist from the United States, performed to an audience of about 250 people at the Yates Memorial Centre- The trio now resides in Calgary and is sponsored by the Allied Arts Council. The recital opened with a performance of Haydn's Trio No. 1 in G major. This is a very under-rated trio, in which the violin and keyboard seem to have most of the dialogue to themselves. Although the piano was especially favored in the work, Ms. Saarinen proved acutely sensitive to her colleague's color and wealth of expression. She allowed for the cello in his subsiduary role to be heard to good advantage at all times. The Gypsy Rondo scherzo was particularly outstanding. This was followed by two Debussy piano solos by Ms. Saarinen, "Masques" and "What the West Wind saw." The latter displayed great power, which the performer was able to unleash at will, and as quickly bring under control again. It was a stark representation of a tempestuous Atlantic gale. Similarly, she was capable of marvellous verve in "Masques." Ms. Saarinen was then rejoined by Mr, Hammer and Mr. Kadz for a highly entertaining performance of the Scherzo from Charles Ives' Trio, entitled Tsiaj scherzo is a It graphically depicted a drunken gathering of the composer's student days at Yale, with snatches of folk tunes in inebriated disharmony, complete with morning after in the so- called "sunrise cadenza." The next number was Faure's "Apres un reve." The trio encompassed this piece with what can only be described as an effortless but completely authoritative performance. The first half of the program concluded with the Dance of the Comedians from "The Bartered Bride" by Smetana. Although the trio favored the salty tang of the dances, one had the impression that they were striving after virtuosity for their own sake. The tempo was very fast and exciting, but to my ears there was plenty of glitter and gloss without the kind of sparkle that a composer like Smetana wished for this piece. The second half consisted of two works. The first was a Passacaglia by Handel, arranged for string duo by Halverson. In his introductory remarks Mr. Kadz explained that the arrangement was by a string player of considerable ingenuity who wished to display the capabilities of the violin and cello. This promise was amply fulfilled, as Mr. Hammer and Mr. Kadz displayed the technical capabilities of their instruments, which included an interesting final variation intended to simulate the organ for which the work was originally composed. The recital proper concluded with Smetana's Trio in G minor, commemorating the tragic f loss of his four-year-old daughter. The artists responded to the poignant lament of the Allegro more slowly, more passionately and with deeper feeling than most of their colleagues, making the music sound very noble indeed.

ASSOCIATION account of the scherzo, and the tarantella of the last movement set off the final phase of the work in dramatic contrast. The dance gave way to a funeral march, succeeded by one last turbulent paroxysm of grief. This was a rare and evocative performance, which drew thunderous applause and an encore. The ensemble had a convinced view of the music, combined with the flush of youth and the maturity of disciplined minds. They obviously en- joyed the evening, and pro- jected their enthusiasm. The handicapped members of the committee have approached the MLA's, who represent all three parties in the legislature, recommending a bill be introduced at the spring session of the legislature to amend the health care insurance act and make provision for wheelchairs, prostheses and orthopedic or other devices. "There are many disabled Albertans whose basic health needs are not being met. because these individuals are ineligible for many health care programs and are not recipients of social assistance or covered under workers' the handicapped members say. Sometimes individuals will also purchase cheaper equip- ment that does not meet the handicapped person's needs because they cannot afford the item which is medically required, they add. Listed -in a brief to the MLA's are items which the handicapped members say should be "initially" included under health care insurance changes, These include wheelchairs, custom built footwear, hearing aids, and respiratory equipment. Mr. Trechka says each person's need would probably have to be reviewed by an assessment board following a physician's recommendation. The five handicapped members also recommended to the MLA's that Blue Cross expand its coverage of drugs to include prescribed experimental drugs and prescribed drugs administered by a physician.
