Thurs. 9:00 to 9:00 Closed Saturdays Calgary Power still repairing power lines .....w � Calgary Power has repaired two of its three main power lines serving Southern Alberta following a power outage Tuesday which lasted more than two hours in parts of the south. Air and ground patrols are being made of the third line which'has not been in operation since early Tuesday. Heavy fog in the Olds area is hampering the air patrol from spotting the cause of trouble. The short power outage in Lethbridge about 5:30 p.m. Tuesday was caused when' the city was switched back to the Clalgary Power system. Following the two-hour morning outage Lethbridge was receiving power from B.C. Hydro until the 5:30 outage. Problems in rural areas, especially in the Olds district of Calgary Power's system, continued today. As chunks of ice fall from the power lines the lines bounce up and wrap around each other causing shorts and outages. During Tuesday morning's power outage in Lethbridge the city power plant was able to carry the load for about two-thirds of the city. One of the city's gas turbines was overloaded and one city line had to be dropped. In the downtown area, power went off for a few minutes, came back on and went off again for two hours. Other parts of the city experienced only a flicker of lights and some areas were off for a considerable period, although not the full two hours. When Calgary Power hooks up with B.C. Hydro and the Northwest Power Pool this fall, Lethbridge will in effect no longer be at the tip of Calgary Power's system. If there is a power failure to the north, Lethbridge and district will be able to get power from B.C. and the northwest U.S. AMA grows slowly local membership told Progress of the Alberta Motor Association has not been spectacular during the year - but AMA growth throughout the province has been steady, provincial president B. A. J. Smith said Tuesday. Mr. Smith, speaking to the annual meeting of the Leth bridge AMA, said the motor association still represents the largest percentage of registered vehicle owners of any auto club in North America. "Our financial foundation is strong. We are now the second largest automobile insurance underwriter in the province and we are. still growing," Mr. Smith said. He said the AMA homeowners insurance is projected to double during 1973 and driver education programs continue to expand. "Last fall we opened the beautiful new building that now houses the Lethbridge branch. Eight after that we opened the new drive-in claims centre at Calgary. "Both these additions will enable us to serve our members in these areas quicker and more efficiently than in the past," Mr. Smith said. INCOME TAX" INDIVIDUAL, FARM, and BUSINESS RETURNS F. M.

As a prelude to Alberta Education Week, LCI will open its doors at 7:30 p.m. for an "informal get together" of teachers and taxpayers. Principal Ken Sauer said four programs have been scheduled for parents this evening, including:  An opportunity for personal discussion with teachers in the LCI cafeteria.  Two performances, at 7:45 p.m. and 8:15 p.m., of excerpts from the LCI spring musical Carousel in the collegiate gymnasium.

Mr. Sauer said he and members of the LCI faculty are especially pleased to have an added opportunity during Education Week to show Lethbridge citizens at least a small part of education in this city. "Schools are, to a very large degree, the personal responsibility of all Albertans. A citizenry that is , well informed about education's aims, objectives, accomplishments, failures and needs will be more inclined to make high quality education possible for all," Mr. Sauer said. Education Week in Lethbridge will be marked by a personal visit to LCI from Education Minister Lou Hyndman the afternoon of March 6. The minister will visit only one other school in the province that day, at Calgary the same I morning. ' Mr. Hyndman, accompanied by deputy minister Dr. Earl Hawkesworth, Alberta School Trustees' Association president Harald Gunderson and Alberta Teachers' Association president Dr. Murray Jampolsky, will arrive at LCI about 1:30 p.m. The foursome will speak to about 150 students at LCI, including a delegation from Winston Churchill High School and Catholic Central High. Mi*. Sauer, and two of his assistant principals, will be "replaced" during the minister's visit by three LCI students selected for their academic and student activities during the year. Graydon Gehm, a Grade 11 student, will assume the principal's chair during the day; Sally Harker and Carol Andrea-chuk, both Grade 12 students, will be assistant principals. Mr, Sauer said each of the three students will be consulted for their views on LCI policies during the time they spend as successors to regular collegiate administrators.

George Topolniski said in an interview that the first concrete steps to improve rural utilities should become evident during the current session of the legislature. Mr. Topolniski, minister with out portfolio responsible for rural development, said the government is cinsidering:  "Extended area" telephone service for all of rural Alter ta. c extending natural gas to all of rural Alberta,  and, creation of a special rural utilities branch within the department of telephones and utilities to pilot the over-all upgrading of service to the province outside Calgary and Edmonton. Details of plans will be unveiled following the budget speech Friday, said Mr. Topo Iniski. Most of the province outside the cities does not now enjoy natural gas service, he said. Gas distribution is largely in the hands of "co-ops" that are concerned with making a profit rather than extending'the utility to areas that in some . cases might be uneconomic. Some form of incentives may be required from the government to expand natural gas service to the entire province, said the minister. An Alberta Government Telephones study is to be tabled in the legislature with recommendations about expanding telephone service to outlying parts of the province. Mr. Topolniski said there is no over-all plan for the orderly development and growth of rural Alberta, but that the provincial government fosters development according to where resources lie and where local residents take the initiative. "There's no point in the government pouring money into an area if the people simply sit back and say 'if the government's going to do it, why should I bother," he said. Despite the declining rural population, Mr. Topolniski said, there is "a new air of optimism" that small communities have the chance to reverse the trend of people leaving for the cities. For the first time in years, he said small centres surrounding Edmonton and elsewhere are gaining rather than losing population. Many people, he said, are beginning to realize that if the quality of rural life can be improved with government help, there are advantages to living in small centres. Government can improve rural life by planning things like utilities and highways with the development of rural needs in mind, he said. Other programs to help the rural areas, he said, are a $50 million industrial incentive fund that provides loans to stimulate business in small centres, an agricultural development fund E. S. P.

GEOGRAPHY STUDENTS TO TEST RESIDENTS How good is your perception of Lethbridge and its main points of interest? This week, a group of 16 senior geography students at the University of Lethbridge are about to find out. A U of L spokesman said the students, who hope to complete their survey early next week, will be seeking information from local senior citizens, junior high school students, CP Rail employees and business groups. Individuals will be asked by the students to sketch a map of the city, showing the focal points throughout the Lethbridge area. Results of the studies will be compiled into a main report by the U of L geography department. The report, and reactions of citizens asked to participate, will be released by the university sometime this spring. Doctors' argument weak says medical school dean The medical profession's claim it isn't adequately represented on the committee that will search for the next dean of the University of Alberta's faculty of medicine is not solid, says the current dean. Dr. W. C. MacKenzie responded to an editorial in the February issue of the Alberta Kinsmen sell sweeps tickets City Kinsmen will be around tiMuigiht selling tickets for the $50,000 KTNstakes. The draw for the sweepstakes will be made March 8. Net proceeds from ticket sales will go towards various Kinsmen projects throughout Alberta. Obstruction brings fine A 21-year-old Lethbridge man was convicted Monday of obstructing a police officer, and fined $25 and costs. Gerald Gregory Weldon, 505 Stafford Drive, interferred with Const. Norman Whelpley as he was arresting another man for intoxication in the Marquis Hotel tavern Feb. 13. Medical Bulletin, the official publication of the 2,300-mem-ber Alberta Medical Association, which said tlhat on the proposed comimittee "students have as much representation as the full-time medical faculty members and three times as much representation as the medical profession." Dr. MacKenzie said Tuesday the editorial failed to mention that a representative of Edmonton's University of Alberta Hospital also sits on the committee. The editorial lamented that no part-time teaching staff or representatives of the public were included on the committee. But the dean said that the university General Faculties Council decided just Monday to appoint a part-time teaching staff member of the committee. "I think you could say the medical profession has much more substantial representation than the students," he said, adding that lie woul dnot object to a member of the public being named to the committee.
