Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 23, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 - THE lETHBRIDGE HSRAtD - Saturday, January 23, 1971 rf/jbk /hi 1 t� k aft* shew! MEMORIES OF THE PLOUGHMAN POET - Scots of Southern Alberta meet tonight at 6:30 at the Canadian Legion in Lethbridge to honor Robert Burns, Scotland's national poet and a favorite with the entire English speaking world. Monday marks the 212th anniversary of the birth of Burns in Ayrshire, whose residents have commemorated his works by turning his birthplace. Burns Cottage, into a museum. The cottage features the originally- Photos by Elwood Ferguson penned version of Auld Lang Syne (left), the poem held to be synonymous with the New Year, and a chair (right) once owned by the poet. Burns was notable for his satirical and patriotic works, and his love poetry-and for the experiences on which the love poetry was based. He died of a heart disease in 1796 at the young age of 37Vi years. Optimistic notes sounded by Strom Would you believe 102-degree change? What a difference a year can make. The record high and low temperatures for Jan. 23 exemplify the quirks of southern Alberta weather. For this date in 1968, the mercury climbed to a balmy 57.8 above, but one year later on the same date, the thermometer read a frigid 44.9 below, a split of 102.7 degrees! The weather isn't likely to be this spectacular this year, as temperatures today hover in Filmstrips on credit given good reception Five filmstrips concerning proper use of credit have been made available to southern Alberta schools and organizations by the Canadian Consumer Credit Education Committee. The CCEC has a local action committee in Lethbridge, which will send along professional credit counsellors from city finance companies, to assist groups who use the film-strips and answer questions which arise. The counsellors strictly avoid any references to their personal jobs. The filmstrips have been used twice since December at the Matthew Halton High School at Pincher Creek, and once at Kate Andrews High School in Coaldale. Bob Schmor, chairman of the local action committee, said the fi'mstrips, which last 20 minutes and are accompanied by records for the sound portion of the show, have received "excellent reception" from the schools he has been in so far.

Anderson MAYOR G'TY OF LETHBRIDGE t h e usefulness and the pitfalls of using credit," he said. Use and misuse of credit, he added, are becoming a definite part of Canadian society. Although there is legislation set up to control credit, most common measures are only preventative, designed to guard the consumer against too-high interest rates and unscrupulous credit companies. "We're trying to create a proper and knowledgeable atti lude toward credit, and we think young people should be our primary target," Mr. Sen-mcr said.

The five filmstrips include Wise Use of Credit; Personal Financial Planning, involving proper budgeting; The Littlest Giant, which explains the individual consumer's strengths and weaknesses within the economic system. You Take The Credit, explaining the variety of available types of credit; and Your Money Matters, which relates cost of credit to cash purchases and the interest rate comparisons. The filmstrips were produced by the CCEC in co-operation with the Consumer Loan Association, and Federal Council of Sales and Financial Companies. the 30 degree range. This would still be a wide 75 - degree spread from the coldest Jan. 23. But southern Albertans had better enjoy the chinook while they can, because Sunday will likely bring a return to colder weather. The warm low-pressure system responsible for the Chinook, is nestled on the eastern side of the Rocky Mountains, but is receiving threats from a cold arctic high reported to be sinking south into Alberta. The cold front is expected to make good its bid by late Sunday. High and low temperatures today should be 35 above and 15 above. Sunday will be cool er, with the thermometer expected to register about 15 above during the day and five above overnight.

From time immemorial, women, and their styles of dress, have been the object of cynicism, rebuke, laughter, and any of a dozen other terms, used with a derisive twist. Okay men. Let's take a hard look at you. Not that we mind the suave, distinguished men in the business world always dressed in the best taste for their age. It's the Don Juans of the over-50 group and the Little Boy Blues who haven't learned that blue stripes do not go with brown checks, or those who haven't learned you do not, repeat, do not, wear a red paisley tie with a printed orange shirt! It has always been the contention of businessmen that their secretaries and stenographers must appear each morning as though they had Just stepped out of Fashion '71. But it seems they spend so much time worrying about the appearance of the feminine aspect of the office, they" fail to take a good look in the mirror. ? ? * Some men appear at the office each morning looking like they just came off a two-day bender and forgot to take pyjamas One man I know, was prone to wear the same shirt and suit for three months, until one evening while rummaging through a closet, he found a new suit, worn once and forgotten. These aren't the bad ones! The ones I really complain about are those who meet the public every day, but insist on appearing in yesterday'* shirt (impressed); last week's slacks (with gravy); and hair that "I just washed and can't do a thing with!" But that's okay guys. We gals will try to maintain the shining image of the office until you realize that you, your manners, customs, AND DRESS, make an even greater impression on the public than we do-despite all our charms. By STEVE BAREHAM Herald Farm Writer TABER - "Alberta is standing on the verge of tremendous developments, and the future of the province could be viewed with great optimism," said Harry Strom, premier of Alberta, speaking at a Taber Chamber of Commerce banquet here last night. Almost 300 people turned out for the banquet, part of the first annual Taber Sugar beet Festival, and heard Mr. Strom outline the detained obligations of government He said there are three basic steps a government must take to function in the best interests of the people: "It must review periodically the effectiveness of programs and policies implemented on the citizens behalf to determine if they are working as they were planned; as- Technologists in agriculture form branch The Alberta Society of Agricultural Technologists has established its first regional branch in Lethbridge. The society, sponsored by the Canadian Institute of Agro-logists and the Alberta Institute of Agrologists, gained its charter three months ago, becoming the first province to be registered in Canada. Chester Oxtoby, Olds, chairman of the Alberta branch, said the society's object is the self - improvement of agricultural technologists through furthering education. An agricultural technologist is defined as anyone working and proficient in the field of agriculture. The society will recognize i courses, either formal or short I courses^ in fields such as mechanics, horticulture, a n i mal husbandry and feed processing. Mr. Oxtoby said one of the aims of the society is to standardise training and qualifications of persons registered under the society. This would enable technologists travelling the country to be classified and recognized equally. The officers and executives of the Lethbridge branch are as follows: Harold Hughes, Coaldale, chairman; Mike Bennett, Lethbridge, vice - chairman; Vikki Wong, Lethbridge, secretary - treasurer; Paul Meloff, J. Dabulos, Harold Munson, Jack DeWit and Keith Grant, all of Lethbridge, directors. Jack McCracken, also of Lethbrilge, will represent the AIA on the Lethbridge branch executive. Week-enders elect officers George McDonald was reelected president of the Week-Enders Travel Club at a recent meeting. Elected as vice-president was Charles Lewis. Secretary is Joyce Stannard. Last year the travel club conducted 14 outings to several provincial parks within a 100-mile radius of Lethbridge. Some of the parks visited were: Cypress Hills, Lundbreck. Taber, Kehoe Lake, Willow Creek, Wat erton Lakes and Little Bow, The club's main purpose is to promote highway courtesy and friendship and cleanliness In provincial campgrounds. This year's first outing is planned for April. A trip to the interior of British Columbia is suggested for July. Anyone wishing more information about the club may contact George McDonald, 327-8050, or Joyce Stannard. 327-2523, in the evenings. sess the present economic and cultural situation; speculate on future potential." Mr. Strom voiced a reminder that Alberta and Canada as a whole are in rapidly changing times, saying there is a real need for updating current government programs. He said it is governments duty to be aware of the thoughts and needs of the people it legislates for, and for this reason advocates periodic public opinion polls. Much of Mr. Strom's talk centered on clamping down on uncontrolled rape of Alberta's natural resources. He suggested in some instances it may be advisable to forego resource development if it is possible the development may cause problems in future years. The Alberta goverment recently formed an organization called the Environment Control Committee, to regulate and control developments, rather than allow indiscriminate use of resources. Mr. Strom said the same thinking was applied in the recent amalgamation of health and social development depart ments. He said co-ordination in these two areas is likely to ensure more effective use of available talent, and will supply preventive measures rather than waiting for a situation to become an acute problem. Summing up, Mr. Strom said government must be conscious of the needs of its people, and only then can it institute the programs and policies best suited." HELP US TO HELP OTHERS!
