Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 18, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Monday, January 18, 1971 Seal fund nearing $26,000 objective The Lethbridge and District Tuberculosis Christmas Seal Fund is on the threshold of meeting its 1970 objective of $26,000. Up to Thursday, the seal fund had collected $25,582, just $418 short of its target. The collected sum amounts to more than 98 per cent of the objective. Donations as of Jan. 14 in the 1967 camp a i g n were $26,237, beating out this year's sum, but the 1970 campaign has collect ed more than the same date's 1969 amount of $25,083 and the 1968 amount of $24,164. Closing date for the current campaign is Jan. 31. Funds collected by the Lethbridge and district seal fund are used for research and prevention of tuberculosis, lung cancer, emphysema and other respiratory diseases. Money is also set aside for study of air pollution and its health hazards. Banks start new system of charging Chargex, a charge-card system backed by four national banks, is expected to begin operations in 10 Alberta centres, including Lethbridge, late this month. The system, based in Vancouver for the western provinces, will become fully operational to the public by the end of March.

A previous request by the department of social development to use an existing residence on Scenic Drive as a home for youngsters who cannot function in larger institutions w a s refused by the MPC after neighbors objected. The new location is 1711 Lake-mount Blvd. Residents of the area will be informed and will have a chance to make their views known. Residence location is chosen Nationale It is expected to be in use throughout the province by 1972. A Royal bank official in Lethbridge said merchants will probably be contacted by salesmen by late January. The system would allow customers to employ one charge account for all businesses subscribing to Chargex, in place of the present method of using a different card for each firm.

The festival, originally planned for September, was first postponed to January because of lack of entries. This was attributed to a tie - up of amateur dramatic personnel in My Fair Lady. The second postponement, to May 20 and 21, has been set to allow Lethbridge and district groups more time for rehearsal. The January date was deemed too close to the Christmas break. The festival was not planned for February, March or April because of music, dance and theatre events already scheduled. At least two plays have been promised for the festival, to be held in the Yates Memorial Centre, and more are expected. The plays, Ah-Tush-Mit, directed by Christine Puhl, and Goin' To Town, directed by Ruby Pierson, are in rehearsal. Lethbridge Youth Theatre has also promised an entry. from plays, children's theatrr and other dramatic formats. Any group or individual wishing to participate should contact the arts council at the Bowman Arts Centre. Festival here on Jan. 31 Folkstone - a folk - singing festival sponsored by the Lethbridge Community College students' council - will be held at the Yates Memorial Centre Jan. 31. Talent from across Canada has been booked for the event,  and two concerts lasting 2V4 hours each will be presented. Entertainers will include Russ Thornberry, originally from Texas; Paul Hann, originally from England and now living in Ontario; Dee Higgins, from Toronto; and Humphrey and the Dump Trucks, from Saskatchewan. The festival is open to the public, and tickets will go on sale later in January. Your NEW Authorized Dealer for . . . JEEP TRUCKS AND STATION WAGONS UNITED MOTORS CO. LTD. Cor. 3rd Ave., 3rd St. S. Phone 327-1418 ANOTHER FIRST BIRTHDAY - Richard (Dick) Ward, a Lethbridge resident since 1911 started all over again Sunday with his first birthday - first of his second century, that is. Family and friends dropped by the Edith Cavell Nursing Home Sunday afternoon for his birthday party, and many district oldtimers sent their regards. Mr. Ward was born in Leigh, in Lancashire, England in 1870. In Lethbridge he worked for the old Campbell, Wilson and Pitfield food wholesaler, he hauled coal and finally was a coach cleaner for the CPR. He was predeceased by a son, John, killed at the end of the First World War, and by his wife, in 1923. His two other children were Mrs. Elizabeth Cristie, 1831 5th Ave. N., and Mrs. Sadie Fraser, 806 18th St. N. He also has nine grandchildren, 30 greatgrandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren - 44 descendants. Two-piano team enchants audience Raymond residents city workers According to a survey undertaken by a University of Lethbridge geography class, about a quarter of the population of Raymond, 30 miles south of Lethbridge, work in Lethbridge. The class project, supervised by Dr. E. E. Miller, U of L geography department chairman, had an 82 per cent response to its questionnaire. in the 376 households responding to the survey, of 457 contacted, 327 persons were employed full-time and 77 persons part-time or occasionally. Of the full-time work force, 23 per cent work in Lethbridge, 63 per cent in Raymond and about eight per cent in the Raymond district. Others worked ii other southern Alberta communities. The survey also showed that 15 per cent of the full-time workers were in professional occupations, 22 per cent were managers, proprietors and officials, 37 per cent clerical, trade and semi-skilled and 26 per cent unskilled.

AND their Overture Concert appearance in the Yates Memorial Centre Saturday night. Arriving in Lethbridge with their two pianos late in the afternoon for the evening concert, the duo's introductory remarks revealed a frozen carburetor, a blizzard and the loss of a truck wheel, all in the last couple of days' travel. But the show must go on, and a good show it was. dementi's Sonata in B flat, Op. 12 for two pianos opened the evening and revealed a pair of pianists well-matched in technique and musical taste. There were, however, occasional wrong notes in the first movement and a certain lack of evenness in some of the runs in the final movement. The second work on the program, and perhaps the most substantial, was the well-known Variations on a Theme of Beethoven, Op. 35 in E flat, by and contained some stunning moments. A slight ensemble problem in the repeated chord variation, a missed note in an arpeggio or two, and perhaps a bit of rushing in the finale scherzo were only minor flaws that could not really mar a musically-shaped and well-executed performance. The second half of the program began with a series of seven short works by an assortment of composers entitled A European Tour Through Music. These works varied greatly in compositional quality, and this reviewer questions the artificial contrivance of a travelogue in the presentation of a musical program. Despite differences in quality among the works the artists handled them all with musical taste and care. The gem among them, of course, was Bach's Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring. The musical tour ended in some geographical confusion with an arrangement of a Nor- thumbrian folk song by Canadian, Thomas Austen. The arrangement was effective for the two pianos, but a more substantial work by a Canadian might have served better. Darius Milhaud's three-movement Scaramouche closed the program, and came off as the best performance of the eve- ning. The exuberant outer movements were performed with sparkling vitality and the middle Modere movement, with appropriate musical subtlety. Editors note: Dean Blair is associate professor of music at the University of Lethbridge.
