ERICKSEN'S Take-Out No.,2 - 1705 M.M. Drive S. - Phone 328-7751 Some schools closed South fares best in Alberta storm BACK TO SCHOOL AS "UNUSUAL" - Some 600 students returned to the Fleetwood-Bawden Elementary School this morning, many of them starting classes for the first time in the unfamiliar 14-room equivalent open area instruction centre. This picture shows one corner of the spacious room, representing a quarter of the full area. There is a similar space to. the left of the picture, with three more classes in it, and the same setup is duplicated at the other end of the open area. Between the two seven-room equivalents is the library. Students can move about to various portions of the full open area; two or three teachers can join forces with one teacher giving general supervision to most of the students while another gives intensive instruction to half a dozen students with a problem in the subject area. The floors are entirely carpeted, and with all 14 classes in operation there is almost no noise problem. In the open area, facilities,, teachers and problems can be shared, and education becomes much more effective through opening the way to much more co-operative and team teaching. ' - Photo by Phil Faulds More rabies confirmed-none in humans By STEVE BAREIIAM Herald Fann Writer The current rabies situation is one of serious concern, but there is still no reason for people to become panicky, said Dr. William Dorward, veterinarian with the Lethbridge Animal Diseases Research Institute. His statement follows recent news reports which refer to the situation as crucial and near epidemic proportions. Since October, there have Pharmacy Facts from 0. C. STUBBS If your thinking tends to run along the line of "If one's good, two will probably work twice as fast" please don't put this theory into practice where your prescriptions are concerned.. For your own sake, please stop to realize that each prescription your doctor authorizes for you is a high-1 y personalized order on his part. In fact, we can think of nothing else in your life which is more personal than the prescription you bring to us. It is the result of the major educational background, diagnosis and considered judgment of your doctor. His careful instructions for its use aro meant to be followed . . . and followed exactly. If he knew a larger dosage would ba of more help, he certainly would have prescribed it in that manner. So, please - for your own sake - follow the exact instructions he gives us to explain to you. Friendly, appreciative service? You can always be sure of it here at your friendly pharmacy (Stubbs, of course). We're always glad to see and be of service to you here at 1506 9th Ave. S. been 17 animals in Alberta diagnosed as rabid. There have been no confirmed cases of rabies in humans, although 40 people are reported to have undergone precautionary treatment. Meanwhile domestic pet vaccination clinics have been set up throughout the province in an effort to form a buffer zone between rabies carriers and the human population. Dr. Glen Jones, a Cardston veterinarian, said he doesn't feel the situation warrants a rabies vaccination clinic in Cardston yet,- but added that one may be organized if enough interest is expressed. He said his office has always advocated the vaccination of domestic pets against rabies, and in the past two months has treated 35 dogs and cats. Dr. 'G. W. Allen, a veterinary surgeon in Taber, said the town has had a vaccination clinic, but exact'figures are unavailable as to how many animals were treated. He did say that since the clinic his office aver- ages 10-15 animal vaccinations per day. Dr. G. N. Beste, a Fort Ma-cleod veterinarian, said a vaccination clinic should be open Census start on Monday Lethbridge enumerators will begin their rounds Monday as the 1971 census gets under way. The yearly census, used as a basis for municipal per capita grants, is to be completed by Jan 22. Sample census forms have been mailed to all households in the city. City administrators have asked that local residents not regard them as junk mail, but fill them out in advance and keep them so they can be given to the enumerator. This makes the job much easier for both the citizen and the census - taker. in Fort Macleod by the end of January. Veterinary officials in Lethbridge estimate about 1,500 dogs and cats have been vaccinated against rabies in Lethbridge and the immediate district. Besides vaccinating against the diease, as a method of control, a wildlife depopulation program has been considered. Dr. Jim O'Donaghue, director of provincial, veterinary services, said recently a concerted effort is being made to determine the role wildlife is playing in the spread of rabies. Alberta has been rabies free for the past seven years, perhaps another reason for the sudden scare as people are not familiar with the disease. Rabies has been prevalent in Saskatchewan since 1965 and has been expected to transfer to Alberta. Rabies is a reportable disease. Anyone suspecting the disease in an animal should immediately contact the near est veterinarian or report to the nearest federal health of animals branch with offices in Lethbridge, Fort Macleod, Brooks, Calgary and Edmonton. Beef seminar A beef cattle seminar will be held in Lethbridge March 27 Bud Olson, federal agriculture minister, announced in the city today. Mr. Olson said the seminar, The Beef Industry in the '70s and Southern Alberta, would attempt to outline the dimensions of market demands. He said unless there is a significant increase in southern Alberta's beef population producers are going to be unable to meet the demands of the meat packing plants currently in operation or under construction. The seminar is expected to attract about 500 people. Ice, snowfall and blowing snow made driving treacherous and many schools throughout central and northern Alberta were closed today while southern Alberta fared better. The blizzard which hit central and northern Alberta Thursday night did not reach the south and while blizzard warnings were in effect at Calgary this morning it was not expected the storm would reach the Lethbridge area. The Kenyon Field weatherman said this morning that winds in the Lethbridge area might get up enough to blow some snow around on the ground but nothing else was expected except some snowflur-ries. Temperatures were expected to drop slowly as the cold air gets deeper with a low of zero to 10 above expected tonight. Saturday's high is forecast at five to 10 above dropping to below zero Saturday night. At 5 a.m. today the mercury registered 37 degrees above, dropping to 25 at 6 a.m. and 17 at 9 a.m. In the Taber school district Vauxhall and Grassy Lake Schools were closed and in the Brooks school district Tilley, Bassano, Rolling Hills, Scandia and Rainier schools were closed because of icy roads and blowing snow. All other schools in the district were open. Visibility in the Brooks area was reported down to 200 yards this morning. Highways in the south vary from bare to very icy. Sanding crews were working today in some areas. The RCMP advise motorists to exercise caution when travelling on the highways, particularly if the storm should hit the Lethbridge area. They report no overnight accidents, despite roads that are in "rough shape." City police reported a decrease in traffic accidents yesterday. They say the situation could get worse if a little snow is added to the ice on city streets. Many schools were closed from Red Deer north today. RCMP in central and northern Alberta advise motorists to "stay put if possible." Highway 43 from Whitecourt to Slave Lake was impassable but all other Alberta highways were open. Highway traffic has been light in the northern portion of the province and speed has been forced down to 30 miles an hour in spots. Roads east of Calgary are reported "very icy" but the Greyhound bus from Calgary to Lethbridge arrived on schedule this morning. Air and rail transportation has not been affected. Travel is not recommended in the Calgary area unless absolutely necessary. Roads are generally covered with a thin layer of ice and are slippery throughout. Medicine Hat had snow and blowing snow with reduced visibility this morning. Highways were generally icy. No great concern on power report Mayor Andy Anderson said Thursday he did not share the concern of Red Deer city officials over the decision by tlie provincial government not to release the Burton Power Commission report. A report from Red Deer said officials there were unhappy about the decision because the city had spent $15,030 on its brief to the commission hearing and understood that the report would be made available for study. Mayor Anderson said that although the city had sent a representative to the hearings last year, be was not overly con- cerned about the commission's report or any provincial legislation affected by it. There was some opinion, he said, that a new Alberta Power Act might establish a province-wide power grid but he felt the province did not intend to move in this direction at this time and there was little cause for concern. Care in city pet shops rated average Appeal $16,000 off mark The Lethbridge United Appeal has received $130,345 in donations, leaving the 1970 campaign about $16,000 short of its $146,466 objective. Although the campaign is over, 79 letters have been sent out to city businesses in a continuing effort to raise the total. Donations this year have exceeded the 1969 total of $128,-600, but it looks as if Lethbridge will be short of its target for two years in a row. Although officials are wary of giving opinions on why targets have not been met, the general consensus is that the objectives were too high, particularly the 1970 target which was an increase of more than eight per cent over the 1969 target of $135,000; and that city residents are still trying to recoup in their private finances from the tight money situation of the past year. Youth hurt in collision Gregory Maxwell, 12, of Lethbridge received hip injuries yesterday when he was involved in a car-pedestrian collision on South Parkside Drive. He was treated at St. Michael's Hospital and released. The car was driven by James E. Reay of Lethbridge. By RIC SWIHART Herald Staff Writer A constable for the Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Tuesday rated Lethbridge pet shops average to above average in the care of caged pets. ftCUFF BLACK, Certified Dental Mechanic BLACK DENTAL LABI lower level MEDICAL DENTAL BLDG. PHONE 327-2822 EXTRA WEAR FOR EVERY PAIR [9/ MIKE HANZEL 3I7-7IH STREET SOUTH A. W. B r u c e of Edmonton, SPCA constable, in a telephone interview said, "On occasion, even when I was not in uniform, checks of Lethbridge pet shops have always proved they are well cared for. "I consider Lethbridge pet shops average to above average when compared to the rest of the province." Rules and regulations governing the care of caged pets are spelled out in the Criminal Code of Canada and the Animal Protection Act. The Animal Protection Act, originated by the SPCA, is only an empowering act for protection of animals while section 387 of the Criminal Code, cruelty to animals, is used to prosecute persons who violate either act. Both acts carry a summary conviction penalty of not more Dine and Dance SUNDAY TONIGHT and SATURDAY NIGHT!

The rule used most often states any person who wilfully neglects or fails to provide suitable and adequate food, water, shelter or care while a pet is in captivity is liable. The Animal Protection Act states any officer, RCMP, city or SPCA, may, without warrant and with force if necessary, enter any premise other man a dwelling place to search for an animal suspected of being abused. lethbridge Magistrate Lloyd Hudson said if force was necessary and the case was brought to court, the offenders would likely receive the harshest, penalty.. He said1 this has only been used once in the province to his knowledge. An Edmonton pet shop owner left some pets in a shop window during the weekend. Police and SPCA officials entered the shop and released the animals to an animal shelter. When informed of the contents of a recent letter to The Herald, about a local pet shop, Magistrate Hudson said he felt there could be cause for prosecution in the instance of the wild birds beating themselves against the sides of their cafie. "The pet shop could be required to put the birds into a larger cage," he said. Mr. Bruce said the SPCA took five pet shops cases in the province to the courts in 1970 and won all of them. He said the main point of contention regarding the care of pets is "adequate food, water, shelter and care." He said the animals usually have to be badly injured or dead before action is taken by the SPCA. "As a constable for the Animal Protection Act, if the situation presented in the letter to The Herald was evident, I would take the injured animals from the cages," he said. "This would leave it up to the store owner to deal with the case under definition of distress as set down in the Criminal Code. "We can continue to do this until it becomes unprofitable foi the store owners to have us take their animals." Mr. Bruce said in most cases it just takes a word from the SPCA to rectify a situation since most of the store owners are public relations shy when it comes to this area. He said the role of the SPCA is to protect the animals and to see to their welfare. "To a large extent, we have to rely on the reports of citizens before we know of many cases. Once we know of a situation, then we can go about to rectify it." CAMM'S SHOE JANUARY CONTINUES WITH TERRIFIC SAVINGS! TEEN AND CAMPUS CHUNKY HEELS Crinkle Patent Wet Look in all colors.
