Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 18, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE LITHMIDGI HERALD Jinuary II, J Dog packs forming in city according to pound keeper Dog packs are forming in I Lethbridge says Glen Ander- ROD, the city pound keeper. People who own dogs are not keeping them in enclosed areas or licensing them, he said. As a result, the dogs, which are a nuisance at present, may be- come dangerous to children and livestock in the future. Mr. Anderson said he has re- ceived reports of supposedly friendly ilogs knocking over school children returning from or going to school. Symphony response is good "Public response to the con- certs by Hie Lethbridge Sym- phony Association is greater than last said Doug Card, board member. Evidence of this was in the far greater number of season tickets sold for this year. Mr. Card attributes this to the m e m b e r s' increased enthu- siasm. The Symphony Association receives a civic grant end a matching provincial grant annually. The majority of this, approxi- mately goes toward ad- vertising. Much is taken up by the payment of copyrights and the purchase or rental of music and music stends. Rental of buildings in which to rehearse (twice weekly) and perform cuts into the budget, and although most of the in- strument are owned by the members, some of the larger ones must be bought. Occasionally, sections of the orchestra must bs augmented with paid professionals from the Calgary Symphony to re- tein the quality of music offer- ed to Lethbridge patrons. The dog packs could eventu- ally become dangerous to live- stock they have ia other areas at other tinwe. When dags start endangering animals, they're apt not tr re- turn home, he warned. This happens because firmer! and ranchers won't risk their live- stock and will shoot dogs seem- ingly wild. Mr. Anderson said, "I jus' can't keep up with re- ferring to the number of dogs loose on city streets. Any unlicensed dog he sees will be picked up and the own- ers will have to pay a pen- alty fee before getting them back. "I can give people warnings about their dogs being unli- censed or running loose, and turn around and the dog just about follows me to the he said. "I like to be u decent with people as I can, but I have to do a job and if I can't get help from people I have no choice but to impound the ani- mal." The dogs are just beginning to gather in packs and get "Into real he warn- ed. Asked whether finei for im- pounded dogs increased with the number of times they were caught, Mr. Anderson said, "no" but added that It was a good idea and would probably amount in fewer dogs on the street if impounded by city council. Fates policy said unfortunate9 LCI bands in concert Thursday The Lethbridge Collegiate In- stitute will hold its annual Band Concert Thursday. Both the concert and stage bands will perform led by con- ductor Jerry Pokamey. Money raised will be directed to the school's band uniform fund. The concert is in the Yates Memorial Centre and will begin at p.m. Tickets can be pur- chased at the door. By MARLENE COOKSHAW Staff Writer The new policy proposed by city council towards the opera- tion of the Yates Centre "most comment- ed Joan Waterfield. The building is becoming more of a commercial enter- prise than a community vice she said. City council required that, is of Jan. 1, the Yates Centre operate with a specific number of staff, which resulted In the reduction and rearrangement of open operating hours. The policy is on a trial basis and will continue until May. Dick Mells, chairman of the culture and recreation division of community services, said the new hours 3 p.m. until midnight will definitely cur- tail the use of the centre. Anyone wanting to use the Yates for rehearsal before this time would not have profes- sional assistance in netting up their program bad fa the past. they have He said the hours would also affect tourists who have often dropped in during the day to see the theatre. Uses of the Yates nre extremely varied from wed- dings, receptions and parties to business conventions, politi- cal meetings and toe showing of educational films and ex- hibits. The centre is well equipped for its many purposes. A large backstage area and equipment are available for set construc- tion most of the tools and machines ii the building were donated by service groups. The stage can be seen from any of the 500 seats and the light and sound systems are better than in most buildings. Toe name of the theatre it- self is often a droving card for local productions. Cost of rental depends on the intended use and UN price of admission to the event. It varies from for morning use to 1150 for commerdsl productions, but the usual cost approximately ?60 per evening. Joan Waterfield, manager of he Bowman Arts Centre, said it was "a shame" that people missing Hie wonderful ser- vice previously provided by the staff of the building. She felt that "the more the Yates is used the better." The long hours of valuable assis- tance to the people were possi- ble because Yates is one of the few non union theatres. She said the policy was en- forced at a very poor time and would adversely affect the up- coming music and dance festi- vals.

Housing regulations restrict do-it-yourselfers' Three break-ins Three overnight break-ins were reported to city police early this morning. Several packages of gum and some cigarettes were sto- len during a break-in to the Eastway Esso Service station and coffee shop. No cash was reported stolen and nothing was reported missing from the garage area of the service sta- tion. Several empty bank deposit boxes were stolen from Lhe Robo Car Wash, 1505 Mayor Magrath Drive. Police report entry was gained through the front door. No information was avail- able at press time concerning a break-in to the Crestline Builder's Market Ltd., 123 30th St. N. Council turns down overpass on MMD When the department of In- dian affairs calls for construc- tion or related trades tenders for a project on an Indian re- serve, it does not do so be- cause Indians are too lazy to help themselves. Most reserve projects, whether they are construction of residential, commercial or Industrial sites, are it least partially financed by band council funds. These funds are supplemented by federal grants end private loans. Private loan companies re- quire guarantees that struc- tures they underwrite adhere to the National Building Code. By applying the building code's stringent standards, a lending company is relatively sure that a structure will last long enough to ensure loan re- payment. The code also gives develop- ers and a building's occupants LethbridgeFoundation forms to accept bequests to city A petition to have an over- pass built at Mayor Mawath Drive and 5th Ave. S. was turn ed down by city council Mon- day. Council did, however, instruct the city manager to have the chief of police assign constable! to control car and pedestrian traffic at the intersection din- ing peak hours starting today. The administration will als< investigate the possibility of in- stalling flashing warning lights a reasonable distance from both approaches to the inter section at council's request. The petition was signed by 408 residents east of Mayor Magrath Drive. The separate school board had also petl tioned council with a siniilar request. A delegation representing UK residents told council the inter section is used by between 150 and 200 school children four times a day, with the constant danger of their being struck by an automobile. Tlie danger will be increased when the Holiday Inn opens, the delegation said. Healing Substance... Exclusive healing substance proven to shrink hemorrhoids...and repair damaged tissue.

He suggested an overpass is the only way to "insure the safety of our youngsters." Alderman Steve Kotch, who moved the intersection be pol- iced, said the city cannot af- ford au overpass. "Since we can't trust the au- tomobile drivers, there's no al- ternative but to have the inter- section he said. The estimated cost of an overpass is between and The question of pedestrian traffic, particularly school chil- dren, has ramifications all over the city, Aid. Vera Ferguson said. She suggested a similar prob- lem exists on 13th St. S. and on Scenic Drive, where children have to cross a major through- fare to get to school. City Manager Tom Nutting called for an analysis of the iroblem, particularly at 5th Ave. and Mayor Magnth Drive which "might suggest a need for an overpass." The entire stretch of Mayor ,Iagrath Drive from south of 7th Ave. to 5th Ave. S. was brought nto the picture by Aid. Tom Has the community treated you well and would you like to continue to help improve it- even after death? The Lethbridge Foundation is designed for that purpose. Comprised of a group of pri- vate citizens with business and finance background, the Lelh- bridge Foundation's job is to receive and administer funds that are bequeathed or donat- ed to the tity. The Lethbridge Foundation uses any money donated by dead or living persons for: promoting education ad- vancement or scientific re- search to increase knowledge and eliminate suffering, promoting the cultural as- pects of life in tha community any charitable, .education al or cultural purposes whic improves the mental, oral an< physical condition for the res dents of Lethbridge and area Any conditions set by donor are met.

City council Monday ap- proved a land sales committee recommendation that the Elks Club be offered the old Arena property for The matter was tabled by council Dec. 20 to resolve the question of responsibility in the case of relocation of service lines on the property. Th'e Elks Club will be responsible for the cost of any relocation. The Elks Club is expected to expand its present facilities 50 feet to the west and use the remainder of the property for parking. The expansion Is to take place in the nest one to three years. Council also approved an ex tension of International Distillers Canada Limited't option to pur- chase land in the new industria' perk until April 17 with a clos ing date set at May 31. International Distillers is still negotiating with the federal government for a federal incen fives grant to go towards tablishing an distil- lery here. Several extensions have been granted the company since the distillery was approved by the Municipal Planning Commis- sion in October, 1970.

City council Monday named Henrietta Halt to replace Rich- ard Bateman as the fifth mem- ber of the Lethbridge Municipal Hospital Board. At about the same time, the joint hospital boards meeting officially accepted the resigna- tion of Mr. Bateman, whose wife is on the Lettibridge Muni- cipal Hospital staff thus mnking him ineligible as a board mem- ber. The order-in-council naming the Joint boards (lie Lcthbridgc Amalgamated Hospital Board iHU has not been received, and board members decided to postpone the election of officers and the appointment of com- mittees. The annual report of the Auxiliary Hospital for 1971 tabled and approved at the meeting shows a surplus of against a deficit of 037 a year before. On the other hand, the LAH maintained an occupancy rate of 96.97 per cent last year, slightly up from 96.36 per cent in 1970. Out-patient visits In- creased from in 1970 to last year. The LMH's annual report was not ready at Monday night's meeting. LMH administrator Andy Andreachuk saJd the re- port will be finalized within the next week.

Foundation directors appeal to anyone who wants to donate money for the overall better- ment of the community to work together with their financial consultants bankers, life in- surance, mutual and invest- ment companies to specify that donations and bequests be held in trust with the interest resulting to be distributed. At a recent Foundation meet- ing Roy Jenkins, vice presi- dent of the Calgary Community Foundation and former owner of the Jenkins Grocery chain said the majority of the public is not aware that' the founda- tion exists. Many people leave or have left money to groups which are either no longer In existence or are now supported wholly by the government and do not re- quire private funds. These funds are then generally set in special trust accounts. Because of quickly-changing priorities among charitable groups, people wishing to be- queath money to help others should donate it to the Founda- tion because its directors arc knowledgeable of which orga- nizations are in need of money. Mr. Jenkins advised the Foundation to obtain court or- ders to secure money left in trust accounts for now non existant or government' sup- ported organizations. sn opportunity to fully utilize the facilities without fear of crippling repair costs. As a result, skilled trades- men are required to develop a project. And because of the Ca- nadian free enterpriie system, both Indian and non Indian contractors are invited to sub- mit tenders. That is why Indian Affairs advertisements such as the one which appeared in The Herald recently called for tenders to psint the interior of 30 dewll- ings on the Blood reserve. The family dwellings were partially financed by Central Mortgage and Housing Corpo- ration leans. CMHC requires that any dwelling it lends money for be built to National Building Code Standards. The Blood reserve dwellings are financed by three groups: a federal Indian Affiars grant, band Council funds, and the CMHC. Because the CMHC loans are guaranteed by the minister of Indian affairs who in turn asks the band housing authority to take over the financial man- agerial duties, an Indian fam- ily not meeting its re-payment commitments can lose its home. Building Code standards are appted universally to new home loan applicants in Can- ada. The band funds are also made available to Indians on the basis of a low interest loan.
