Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 15, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta TOI ItTHMIDOE HEULD Saturday, January 15, 1971 Bit you ask By RON CALDWELL The snow removal and winter street maintenance in this city is abominable. Major thoroughfares are left virtually untouched after storms creating probably the worst winter driv-jig conditions east of Budapest. With a little effort, city work crews could be out doing the job they are paid te do when it should be done immediately after a snowfall. Instead, they choose to wait in the vain hope that a Chinook is going to come blowing along to do their work for them. By the time they realize it Is not going to happen, the fluffy snow that could have been removed in a matter of hours has hardened into ice. Then, they proceed to pile all the hardened snow Into the middle of the street, creating a serious traffic hazard. It is difficult enough in the early morning traffic to negotiate your course through frosted windows, without the added burden of ice chunks piled three feet high in the middle of the street. Youngsters on their way to and from school have chosen unwisely to ramble up and down these piles of snow, and children being children, they don't pay that much attention to traffic. Now what is going to happen when one of these youngsters slips from this man-made disaster area into the path of an oncoming car? Many of the intersections in this city could be used as a torture test for rally cars. Driving through one intersection in the downtown area after a recent storm, my car bounced so much that the front bumper actually scraped across the top of these ridiculous snow mounds. The idea of putting sand on icy streets to improve traction is a good one. The only trouble in Lethbridge is that it is not done soon enough, nor is it done on enough streets, nor is enough sand put on the streets that are done. During the aftermath of the storm which hit the second weekend in January, a total of 21 accidents were recorded in a single day. Most of these accidents were two-car collisions. So nearly 40 motorists In this city have suffered Inconvenience, fright and higher insurance rates because of inept street maintenance from just one storm. I don't know who Is responsible for this inexcusable situation, but I would guess the rank and file workers are the least at fault. But it is about time someone took the snowplough by the wheel and got the hail out of this By JOE MA SUK Writer According to toe 12 animal lunar cycle, 1972 is the Year of the Rat, which the books say "will he good for miking money, for businessmen and thieves alike." But it is not a good year for marriage, which should preferably be construed In Blind year, like the outgoing Year of the Pig. (Love is blind-n'es Reports from Hoflg Kong say Chinese lovers who believe in this arc hurrying to marriage registries to beat the deadline of Feb. 15, when the lunar year 4670 begins. If the lunar calendar la taken seriously, which very few do today, this year will see an increase in crimes and conflicts around the world. There is a story about how Rat, the smallest of the 12 calendar animals each denoting a year, talked Buffalo into giving up the first seat on the calendar. The cycle begins with the ratty Rat and ends with the fatty Pig. "I'm more Important than you Rat told Buffalo. "Let's run down the streets and find out." So they did, Rat on the back of Buffalo. "I think I saw a rat riding on a the folks said disbelievingly, "I did, 1 Rat lectured a dejected Buffalo. "I got recognition LITTLE CELEBRATION There will be little at least outdoor celebration of the Chinese New Year in Alberta south of Calgary. In Lethbridge, there won't even be firecrackers supposed to scare away the old and evil and welcome the new and good this year because the city council banned it for fire hazards. And there aren't many Chinese in southern Alberta. According to 1961 statistics, there were persons classified as Chinese by ethnic grouping in Alberta; 729 In census divisions 1 and 2 which comprise woi of the Oldman River region; 413 In the dty of Lethbridge; and 17 In toe County of Leth-Chlnen poputoUon hi Lethbridge Is currently estimated by the Chinese Benevolent Association to be in the region of MO. This figure includes those who were ban In Canada, time who are westernized, and those who blow very little Chinese or about China. MUCH CELEBRATION Where there lire bigger Chinese jn North America San Francisco and Vancouver for instance observations ire in order. In San Francisco, there will be a Gum Lung (Golden Dragon) dance tad a parade prefaced by Miss Chinatown U.S.A., among other activities. Back in the old days, the Chinese, 90 per cent of the population still agriculture oriented today, observed UK Chinese New Year for a month, beginning from the last full moon to the Lantern of the incre The new year through me BlnhtUy of Mm on the 7th of the first moon until the Luttra Festival on he 15th of to tint moon. PEACE ON EARTH Notwithstanding oriental flavor md mystery, the Chinese New Year If celebrated in the same tpklt of peace md blessing "There won't be any outdoor celebration, to Lethbridge, or southern for that said Junes Leong, tecre-tary of the Chinese md of UM BvNToltat nJWtllUon.

NO HOLIDAYS A 72 year old CHntM, who came to Camda yew said he did not plin my cdebritloni. "When I young, I might fo to Calforr If wanted to have said "We don't have for the Chinese New Year.'' in-other Chinese, who ii in bb M remarked. "No, we'll no-ice it Is the new yeir leuon. That's about it." Dr. F. K.

Dr. Quo, for Instance, the Mandarin and the FuHen dialects, whereaj most Chinese in Chinatown speak Toisb-an dialect. Many oW Chinatown-en speak little or no EogUih, "I have been te Lethbridga for six years, but I not seen a parade or something like he said. con Time is gooc business, mo On the last full moon (16th of the lath moon on the lunar calendar) the owners of shops and then- employees will have a feast. The merchants clear their accounts, collect the bills and ready the stock for the new year. PAY DEBTS On toe other hand, people should prepare to pay their bills and debto. It Is nid tint those who carry debts over the new year will be carrying debts the rest of the year. People should buy "nien four" (new year including the best food they can afford, new clothes and decorations. They should go to the banks to get new coins and paper money to be given as "lai see" (red pocket or fortune Bachelors and single girls t( for thieves, ney-making not have lo give "lai see." However, if married couples do not give "lai the children will "ing 111 tee" or "mo lai which you won't be fortunate in the new year. Although there is no regulation how much money you should give out as "lai the will call you "Scrooge" if you put one cent in a red pocket. The kids, of come, are the happiest during the new year season. For not only are they on holidays, but also they have ilenty of money, new clothes, ots to eat, and lots to play. "Better the mother weep than the child cry" is a common phenomenon during the new rear season, for parents cannot bear hurting their children as "have nets" while other kids have plenty. SACRIFICE On the 23rd and 24th of the 12th moon, It is time for sacrifice to the god of kitchen, who purportedly reports to the Heavenly Emperor, the Chinese equivalent of God, at year's end. He Is a comiptive god, so people corrupt him. By putting sugar on his mouth, the Chi nese believe he can only repor sweet things to the Heavenly Bmperor. "Turn nien" (new year's eve dinner) marks Hie end of the outgoing ,year. The Chinese believe in togetherness, especial ly during the new year season They also believe in "A year' plan is made in the spring.' Therefore, they want to start the new year at their best. NO LONOHAIBS Among other new things, 1 Is essential to have a new hair cut. And efter everything is sel tied, the elder will take the kid out for a walk to get rid of their "laziness." "Rung hej fat (wish you good fortune) people gree each other on New Year's Day Children should go to their elders to pay respects. They are only too pleased to go, because it's "lai see" that counts. Gambling is the traditiooa entertainment for the new year Today, when men land o the moon, many of the old prac tices are clearly out of date Besides, new year customs ar considered "bourgeois luxury' in China and a new, Mao Tse-tung style of "celebrating the new year remembering the bit teraess ol the past" has bee enforced.
