Petit of the 20lh Independent Field Battery of the Canadian Militia, Lethbridge, struggles to pull an arctic survival toboggan up a steep bank which was once a part of the Whoop-Up Trail.

Bennett Photo Chinook hampers militia survival exercise By LARRY BENNETT Staff Writer Winds gusting up to 57 m.p.h., blowing snow, bad roads and poor visibility re- sulted in the cancellation of a winter survival training camp near West Castle Resort Satur- day and Sunday. Lack of cold and snow was also a problem. A total of 26 members of the Lethbridge 20th Independent Field Battery of the'" Canadian Militia and two members of the regular Canadian Forces, all from Lethbridge, participated instead in an improvised sur- vival camp.

Phone 328-4095 The alternative campsite am area used for the survival camp was directly across the Oiiiman River from the origin al site of Fort Whoop-Up, aboul eight milss southwest of Leth bridge. Much of the snow from the new survival area had either been blown away or melted by the Chinook weather condi. tions. The participating militia men were able to employ specially designed and Canadian maSu- factured magnesium alloy snowshoes for only short peri- ods of time on some of the re- maining larger snowdrifts. A march of about 1% miles to the base campsite was requir- ed. Each man carried a fully- equipped back-pack and down- filled sleeping bag, and each was dressed in arctic survival dotting including heavy white mucklucks, nylon wind pants Ther'ino Time Like Now To Buy A Snow Blower 5 DAY WAREHOUSE CLEARANCE SALE! 8 H.P.

The total weight carried by each man, including arctic clothing, sleeping bag, pack and equipment such as snow- shoes and personal gear total- led about 50 pounds. The lack of snow made it rough going for Hie partici- pants who had to pull addition- al equipment on small supply toboggans. At the campsite the men were divided into' "tent- groups." Four, five man tents and one 10 man tent were used. The tents, designed for use in sub-zero weather, worked ade- quately. A night reconnaissance exer- cise was held Saturday. The group wss divided into three squads, and ore was sent out to try to avoid being captured by the other two. Two of the members of the first squad were able to evade capture and returned to camp nearly an hour after the exer- cise was over. All of the militia members were dressed 'in' camouflage white coveralls and one officer said, "In those outfits you could sit down on a snow drift and nobody could ever see you as long as you stayed Brigade Commander Major D. P. Graham said the weather was not what had been antici- pated, but at least the men were able to familiarize them- selves with the arctic survival gear. "We did learn the arctic tents held up well in heavy wind he said. 70-mill property tax Budget approval may come tonight Trie 1972 budget oould be IP- proved tonight if city council gets through Hie community services directorate and capital expenditure sections before the meeting. Council will begin at 4 p.m. to consider those sections and recommend cuts felt necessary from the requested ex- penditure by the community services department, and in capital projects for the year. total estimated budget is about 67 per cent of which is to come from a 70-mill tax levy. In three previous budget ses- sions, few cuts of any signifi- cance have been suggested by council. The regular meeting is sched- uled for B p.m., at which time council is expected to act on a Municipal Hospital board rec- ommendation that city council appoint a representative to re- place Richard Bateman on the board. Mr. Bateman has submitted his resignation from the board because of a conflict of inter- est. His wife is a member of the hospital staff. Regulations do not permit a person whose spouse Is on the staff to hold a position on the hospital, board. The board has recommended council appoint Henrietta Hart as a trustee. Downtown parking will also receive council's attention to- night. Three letters objecting to the proposed increase in park- ing meter rates are on the agenda, including two from ru- ral residents. An administrative proposal to eliminate 12-minute meters in the stalls around the post office and in other downtown stalls is considered a discriminatory move by the rural petitioners. The third letter, from a down- town businessman, states the increase in meter rates will cause a further disuse of faci- lities in the downtown area. The parking situation down- town is still being studied by the administration and council. Other items on the agenda in- clude: a petition from .408 resi- dents east of Mayor Magrath Drive and 5th Ave. S. request- ing an overpass be built at that intersection.

Lighthouse wows 'em By RrCHARD BURKE Staff Writer All southern Alberta must iave bounced Sunday night to the sounds of Lighthouse. The Toronto group was own for a concert at the Exhi- rition Pavilion. By the end of he evening, young people lad become a part of the per- ormance, clapping and moving with the raucous rhythm. The 11-man group provided he audience with a polished, >rofessional performance, >lending their own material with that made famous by Chi- :ago and what sounded like ethro Tull. The ingredients: guitar, bass guitar, flute, baritone and tenor sax, trombone, trumpet, violin cello, electric piano and drums The concert opened with 32 bars a la Tijuana Brass, and broke into an account of the 1849 California gold rush. The down-tempo tune was mos noteworthy for the fact that thi words were perceptible. One wondered until the fourtl song, "Sweet abou the effectiveness of the cell'o and violin. This was the firs time they could be heard. The song was a relief after the as sault on the ears by the group "What Gives You the It took a 20-minute intermiS' sion for the audience to recover from the Lighthouse arrange- ment of "Eight Miles which has got to be the long- est-ending song ever.

ORGANS NEW and USED MUSICLAND By GARRY ALLISON Herald Staff Larry Phillies' Bowa, Fhiladelphi shortstop, took tim out during his short stop-over in Lethbridge to give local young sters a few tips on infielding Bowa set'or tied three ma jor league fielding records las season and he passed on some of the many techniques he ba perfected over the years. He told the aspiring youn shortstops to always be read and alert, placing the weight on the balls of the feet and not on the heels. Larry also showa the youngsters bow to keep the glove close to the ground an< come up on the ball, rather than the reverse. Above all he told them practice and then practic some more. The seams of the baseball are important to tbe infielder a well as tbe pitcher. He said all other players should grip the ball across the seams rather than with them. This way the ball will not float or ho around, as it does when a pitct er throws it. HUMIDIFIERS AND FURNACE AND REFRIGERATION SERVICE Hill Ltd. 1262 2nd S.

While m the city Bowa also spoke of the extreme drug prob- lem in his home area and also throughout the United States. He said that youngsters, six and seven years of age, were using drugs and the programs on drug abuse sponsored by the district attorney'i office in Phil- adelphia were now being aimed at the kindergarten and pre- school aged children. He feels the best way to com- bat drug misuse is right in the child's own home. With proper training and love at home the problem should not occur, be said.

Temperature to drop By RON WEATHEnWATCHER Staff Prophet I hope you got a picture of the mercury touching 48 degrees above zero during the weekend, because it is now headed the other way. The weatherman says an arctic cold front bearing winds of 23 mph will move into the Lethbridge area around mid- day today. It will also be ac- companied by light snow, which will naturally be whip- ped along by gusting winds. The temperature will stay around the 25 to 30 degree level today, but will dip to zero to five below tonight. Tomorrow will see light snow, 10 to 15 mph winds and temperatures will hover around the zero mark. Tbe cold front Is expected to hang over the area for the next few days but temperatures ire expected to stay at a reason- ably sane level, unlike last week's 30 and 35 below zero. A warming trend is expected to develop later in the week. With luck. CLIFF BLACK, Certified Dental Merfionk BLACK DENTAL! Lower Level MEDICAL DENTAL BLDO.
