Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 26, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 12J - THE IETHBR1DGE HERALD - Monday, February 26, 1973 TODAY HEART MONDAY Today is Heart Monday in the city. A door-to-door blitz of the city by more than 550 volunteer canvassers has been scheduled between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. Heart Fund chairman Suzie Ilironaka said she expects the blitz to exceed last year's one-day campaign which netted $12,388. The business campaign, which started at the beginning of February, will continue to the end of the month, Mrs. Hironaka said. Money collected in the campaigns goes into the National Heart Foundation from where it is distributed to various re-search centres in the province, she said. Coroner undecided on fatality A decision on an inquest into the death of a 23-year-old Standoff man killed Friday night in a single-vehicle accident near Cardston is pending, Coroner Dr. R. W.

"A fascinating play" was the way adjudicator Dr. B F. Tyson described "Babel flap" performed by the Bowman Players. "I was delighted with what I saw." The play, written less than one year ago, starred Albert Azzara as the worker and David Moline as the smoker. Babel Rap will compete in the provincial one-act play finals at the Banff School of Fine Arts March 2 and 3. Two other plays competed at the local festival. One noncompetitive play was presented as well. The Archers presented the play "The Stronger" with Laurie Mann as Madame X and Pat Waterfield as Miss Y. The Harlequin Players from the Lethbridge Community College presented the "Big Black Box" with Alan La Fayette as Arnold and Guido Zanoni as the box. Pyramus and Thisby was presented by the Playgoers. This play was non-competitive. Dr. Tyson judged the entries on the choice of play, the dramatics, directing, acting and achievement. Approximately 300 local people watched the performances. Dr. Tyson thought this was exceptional since there has not been a one-act play competition in Lethbridge for some time. Dr. Tyson as adjudicator has spent almost his entire life working with dramatics. He was in and directed school, community theatre and university plays. Just prior to judging the Lethbridge one-act plays, Dr. Tyson adjudicated the companion festival of one-act plays in Medicine Hat. * BALDWIN PIANOS and ORGANS THE SOUND INVESTMENT * ACCORDIONS and GUITARS ir STUDENT AMPLIFIERS and ACCESSORIES NEW AND USED BERTI SCHOOL OF MUSIC 2646 SOUTH PARKSICE DRIVE PHONE 327-0115 Around the corner from the Park Plaza Motel NOW OPEN REMUS TELEVISION 624- 13th St. N.

WATCH FOR OUR UPCOMING ANNOUNCEMENT OF A WARRANTY SERVICE DEPOT FOR MAJOR COMPANIES Are 2 leaders better? By GREG McINTYRE EDMONTON - The peculiar double-headed leadership" of the Alberta Social Credit doesn't bother Socred MLAs. It almost seems that two leaders are better than one. A Calgary Conservative confronted a Calgary Socred recently with the wisecrack "How's it feel to be working for two leaders?" The immediate and biting reply was "How's it feel to be without a leader." The confrontation reflects a new aggressiveneirc in the opposition Socred benches in the legislature. Jim Henderson, the party's leader in the assembly, has been at the front of some of the most unsettling moments for the Conservatives in their 17 months in office. Werner Schmidt, the 41-year-old former Lethbridge college administrator, who last month replaced Harry Strom as party leader, although without a seat in the legislature has given Social Credit at least a young, optimistic image. .> * t Premier Peter Lougheed's complaint last year that his new Bill of Rights was not getting enough publicity has come back to haunt him. The opposition has battered the Conservatives with one human rights issue after another - the Craig case where controversy surrounded the seizing by police of medical records, the Slave Lake affair where the RCMP were used to investigate what looked like a political situation and most recently the Davy incident where an Edmonton man claims to be Alberta's first political prisoner after being detained in a mental institution. One. Socred was even cheeky enough to ask if opposition comments will be included when the Bill of Rights is circulated.  � * It hasn't been all dreary though. Sample some colorful but mind - boggling verbiage which all occurred during just one debate. The opposition was demanding to know where loans were going from the government's new incentive fund to industry - tlie Alberta Opportunities Company. The Conservatives argued to keep the recipients of loans secret. Conservative Roy Farran (Calgary North Hill) got tied in knots defending secrecy on the grounds that a new business receiving a loan is like a delicate flower - an unlikely analogy. Said Mr. Farran, "You are giving seed money to something that will grow and in order to grow it, you have to nurture it, you have to give it a little bit of fertilizer, you have to give it its chance in the sun. "Otherwise it will just whither on the vine . . . you have to be terribly careful when you ask for these details for some political motive . . . careful that you are not washing out the baby with the bathwater . . ." Conservative Julian Koziak (Edmonton Strathcon a) wsnted MLAs to think of the incentive fund as "a financial house of last resort" deserving special treatment. Socred Ted Hinman (Cardston) cut through Conserva-tive bluster with ". . . it has been very interesting for me to hear the honorable deputy premier justifying thievery just because there are thieves." And the debate ended on an appropriate note of whimsy. Conservative Les Young (Edmonton Jasper Place) concluded his remarks with ". . . Mr. Speaker may I call It 5:30 . . ." Speaker Gerry Amerongen, looking somewhat puzzled, replied "May the chair place a liberal construction on the request to call it 5:30? Since it was already 5:30 the impart of the remark must have been a request to adjourn the debate ..." After a gallant Socred attempt to capitalize on the uncertain situation and adjourn the debate, Mr. Young was allowed the honor and will therefore open the debate when it comas up again. * * * Socreds Leighton Buckwell (Macleod) and Charlie Drain (Pincher Creek - Crowsnest) are dazzled at finding their room-mate Jim Henderson chosen leader of the band. Said Mr. Drain, after the three had moved into new premises in an apartment near the legislature, "This is probably the closest we'll ever get to the top." * * * As if apologizing for the Slave Lake affair wasn't enough humble pie for a while, Attorney-General Merv Leiteh had his number picked by the fates again. The assambly broke into gales cf laughter as he introduced a group of student visitors from his Calgary riding ... the visitors weren't present. To make things worse Calgary Socred Roy Wilson reminded the attorney general that even if his visitors had showed up, they wouldn't have been the first students from Calgary- as Mr. Leitch had said-because students from Mr. Wilson's constituency were in the gallery a few days before. *   Of the three parties at the legislature, grumbly newsman dike New Democraltic Party news releases best . . . Socreds hardly ever have any, and government announcements, while usually more important, are notoriously vague and wordy. So it was sweeter than sweet this week as one of NDP leader Grant Notley's minions swept through the press gallery handing out the latest printed word under the catchy title of "work savers." Difficult social climate forecast for LDS church By NOEL BUCHANAN Herald Staff Writer A difficult social climate for the church within the next five to 10 years was forecast here Sunday at the Lethbridge Latter-day Saints first quarterly stake conference of 1973. "The church will face many difficulties before reaching its final glory," said President Ru-lon G. Craven of Orem, Utah. Addressing more than 1,800 persons gathered in Lethbridge Stake House, Mr. Craven emphasized he was not forecasting an impending catastrophe. There is always the possibility of personal disaster due to illness or changes in commpjn-ity employment requirements, Mr. Craven said. The regional representative of the Council of Twelve Apostles was addressing LDS members on church welfare programs. Scripture and church leaders have repeatedly warned of "trying times," Mr. Craven said. "Every LDS member should strive to become free and independent. Avoid debt like the plague. Live within your income and learn to save a little," he said. Mr. Craven encouraged LDS members to store away food, clothing and fuel sufficient to supply their families for at least a year. "I believe we should prepare for the restoration of Zion and establishment of the united order," Mr. Craven said. "The Lord is telling us to learn to care for ourselves in time of need. The time will come when man will have to survive on what he has individually prepared - temporal and spiritual." Dog taken from pound A silver - colored German Shepherd dog is missing from the city pound, following a cunningly engineered escape Saturday night. Police suspect however that the dog had an accomplice on the outside who broke in through the front door to affect the canine's freedom. Apparently, break - ins. at the dog pound are not that uncommon an occurrence: there have been three or four in the last several years. Quoting Old Testament prophets who forecast a firey warning to the wicked, Mr. Craven urged LDS members to guard against speculation. "Don't worry about speculative books dealing with events yet to come. Keep your eyes on the prophet and leaders of our church, listening for their teaching," he said. Lethbridge stake president, Bryce Stringham; first councillor, Dr. Lamont Matkin; and second councillor, Dale Highland, each spoke briefly on the welfare topic. David Puzey, elders quorum president; Bessie Pratt, stake relief society president and Picture Butte Ward Bishop Stanley Johnson each gave testimony of practical involvement in LDS relief programs. The LDS student association choir, under the direction of Doug Castleton, performed two anthems during the conference service. Something Is Happening At . . .
