PIPING IN THE HAGGIS 200 people attended "A Nicht wi' Burns' Saturday. Jan. 22 was the 213th anniver- sary of the birth of the Scottish poet, Robert Burns. The celebration is sponsored annually by the General Stewart Branch of the Royal Canadian Legion Pipe Band. Above, Pipe Major John Gilchrist provides some Scottish music for "piping in the Haggis."

If all drug abusers were arrested courts would be filled every day9 By RUDY HAUGENEDER Staff Writer The police do not pounce on all known drug abusers, says Provinicial Judge L. W. Hud- son. People who, out of frustration, may experiment with drugs are provided with an opportunity "to sort out their problems." Many drug users are, un- known to themselves, under po- lice scrutiny and could be sub- ject to arrest if continued drug abuse is evident. If all known were arrested drug abusers the courts ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC Schwarti Bldg. 223 5th St. S. Phone 328-4095 "would be filled every day with Judge Hudson said. The police concentrate their effort against "drug cult members who have "a morbid fascination with drugs." Identifying drug cult mem- bers as those people who con- stantly "talk and think drugs" Judge Hudson said, they are the ones who fill a courtroom whenever a drug offense is heard. "They fill a courtroom to lis- ten to an adjournment. Because of this "nrorbid" at- tachment to drugs, drug cullers identify themselves to the po- lice by appearing in court to watch drug cases, he said. Speaking Sunday at a Native Counselling Services of Alberta workshop to "prevent youth from abusing drugs and alcohol" and to help those already hooked on either, Judge Hudson also warned that some people are "innocently" hooked on drugs by medical doctors. When medical doctors do not carefully watch the quantities of drugs they prescribe to pa- tients this may occur, he said. Most doctors, however, care- fully avoid making patients de- pendent on addictive drugs. Doctors suspected of "slop- py" drug prescribing should be Chinook Stationers Ltd. 306 13 ST.

The problem is that people who are addicted to drugs usu- ally will not report a case of medical1 malpratice t h e m- selves. Questioned about people who sniff commercially saleable pro- ducts to obtain judge Hudson said this poses a par- ticularly acute problem. No legal methods presently exist to restrict the sale of Uiis type of drug, he said. "The most horrible results" occur from sniffing, from which "people can become less than animals." Juveniles accused of "snif- fing" are dealt with in family court, where the dangers of the habit are oulined to parents: Judge Hudson says all he has to do is tell older people of the physical and mental dangers of sniffing and usually "that's all I "I've never [ound anyone who really knew what glue snif- fing would do." Mixed local reaction to two-price wheat system By RIC SW1HART Staff Writer With the final plans for Can- ada's two price system for wheat pending, farmers are now looking to more money through grain sales. The federal, government Sat- urday announced a two price system for grain which would allow the export price to float for competition on the world market and still pay farmers bushel for wheat sold on the domestic market. The price of wheat had been pegged at per bushel, but the new price will go to farmers from the federal trea- sury. Al Hines, grains supervisor for Ellison Milling and Elevator Co. Ltd., suggested the farmers should get more for the wheat sold in Canada. He suggested the payment may City council adopt 1972 budget City council will meet to- night at 8 o'clock to finalize at least two items which have been around council chambers for more than a month. The 1972 budget was intro- duced to council Dec. 20 with a requested mill increase over last year's 68-rnill levy. Preliminary discussions by the council budcst committee have been completed for the part of the budget dealing with the operations of the city for the next year. Few cuts have been recom- mended by the committee, but further consideration will be given at a regular council possibly tonight. Before that happens, the five- year capital budget from 1971- 75 will be reviewed. For 1972, has been requested, most of -which would go toward public works, local improvements, water depart- ment expansion and West Leth- bridge development. Projects under the capital budget are financed through debenture borrowings from the Alberta Municipal F i n ance Corporation. Local taxpayers are affected each year by the Excessive use of liquor can kill says Excessive boozing kills. Bob Ogle, of Edmonton, coor- dinator of alcohol education counsellors for the Native Counselling Services of Alberta says alcoholism kills many Al- bertans annually. And the only way to prevent alcoholism is through public ed- ucation which will outline its dangers. Alcoholism is both addictive and a disease which kills by: producing a lack of regu- lar sleep; causing body breakdown through lack of proper nutri- tion. Both sleep and food become unimportant to the alcoholic, be said. alcohol education counsellor Alcoholics affect many peo- ple their families, relatives, and friends, and cause pain to all. Mr. Ogle said the alcoholic realizes this and feels remorse, which in turn causes more drinking. They also suffer from "black- outs" which are periods of time that an alcoholic doesn't recall. Speaking at an information workshop on drugs and alcohol in Lcthhridge during the week- end, Mr. Ojle said the only thing an alcoholic has going for him is "hope hope to stop drinking." "There's lots of hope for the he said. City buses assist in Greyhound runs The Lollibridge city transit, was called to help Greyhound Bus Lines transport its over- flow passengers to Calgary yes- terday. "Our Lethbridge Calgary routes have been very busy since the air c o n t r oilers' Jim Irvine, Greyhound transportation supervisor in Calgary, said today. "Yesterday, our two buses returned from Great Falls fully he told The Herald. So used a Lethbridge transit bus to help us parry the passengers boarding in Leth- bridge to Calgary." Mr. Irvine said Greyhound has an agreement with the HUMIDIFIERS AND FURNACE AND REFRIGERATION SERVICE Chorlton Hill Ltd. 1362 Ind Ave. S. Phme 321-3311 Lethbridge transit to charter two of its buses when needed. "However, only one additional bus was required be added. Greyhound has been experi- encing heavy passenger vol- umne since the strike, he said. He also dismissed charges that Greyhound's better, newer bus- es were put on the Calgary-Ed- monton run. "Our best buses are servic- ing between Lethbridge and he said. "Of course, when there is an overflow, we will have to use one of our older buses." Tirrtc Airways is also operat- ing despite the air controllers' strike, although weather prob- lems have at times limited its service. TASK FORCE The Lethbridge Chamber ot Commerce no longer has a health committee. It has been replaced by the task force con- cept. ORGANS NEW und USED MUSICLAND WE TAKt GRAIN! Alcoholics Anonymous groups are the only proven method of providing hope for them, be said. Reiterating Mr. Ogle's com- ments was S'gt. E. J. dark, a Lethbridge RCMP officer. Sgt. Clark said anyone turn- ing to excessive drinking "lacks willpower or is trying to es- cape from something." He cited dramatic highway fatality and injury figures which involved people who had been drinking. Outlining the severe penalties the courts impose on impaired drivers, Sgt. Clark said the ex- tensive anti-drinking advertis- ing which has appeared to date seems "almost useless." The police are no longer han- dling non-driving drinkers as criminals, and provide "over- nig h t accommodation" for them in police cells, he said. Bartenders working in hotels have a legal and moral obliga- tion to cut off people who have had too much to drink However, he admitted the rules are frequently not ad- hered to. People who telephone to com- plain about alcohol distributors who abuse selling rights are asked to leave their names but an "anonymous call about a fault" will do, Sgt. Clark said. If the complaint is based on fact, "we'll get 'im." Asked whether the police, with their experience with al- coholics and their problems, had any recommendations that could act as a deterrent to "heavy Sgt. Clark re- plied they had none in addition to the methods already exist- ing. He said alcoholism follows no social barriers and affects all income and ethnic groups. However, those alcoholics who have money or come from af- fluent families are better-con- ceiled from public view than their less financially able coun- ter parts. An extensive and meaningful public education program could reduce the problems arising from alcohol abuse, he said. 20% OFF SALE DENBY LANGLEY TABLEWARE FROM ENGLAND CRANMRRY Now ii the lime to buy and save at there will be a 19% Increaie in Price in February!

Council is also expected to appoint five members from the community to the community services advisory committee. The bylaw providing for the committee was passed In No- vember. Since that time, sever- al local people have been rec- ommended to fill the five posi- tions. The committee will be re- sponsible for providing council with information on community service programs and making recommendations as to the needs of the community in thic respect. would reach the farmera through the final payments. He said the initial payments would likely remain the farce since the government doesn't know the amount of .wheat to be sold for the year in ad- ance. OrvilJe Reber of Burdett, Al- berta director to the Palliser Wheat Growers' Association, said the reaction in his com- munity is mixed. He said 15 years ago he ac- companied farmers to Ot- tawa asking for this very thing but they "gave up in the mean- time because it looked like we would never get it." He said the plan leaves a lot of questions to be answered. He said he is afraid it is not the total solution but "one of the things the government could do." He said the real crux to Ox problem of grain marketing in Canada remains the movement to selling points. "We will get as much for all grains in the end if it is moved directly instead of incurring all the storage and interest said Mr. Reber. "The real answer is the movement of gram from the farm to market.'1 Homeowner grants will continue There has been no announce- ment to suggest the Alberta government homeowner grant will be discontinued under the new Lougheed administration, Deputy Municipal Affairs Min- ister A. W. Morrison said Thursday- "I haven't any information to the contrary, so I presume it will continue at least for an- other he said. Mr. Morrison would not spec- ulate on whether the govern- ment has any plans to imple- ment a grant to the first own- ers of homes. There has been uncertainty on the part of Lethbridge city assessors as to whether the grant would be altered this year. Gerla appointed City clerk John Gerla was ap- pointed as clerk of the court of revision. The court is set up to allow property owners to appeal the 1972 assessment of their prop- erty. Tourist route study grants approved Approval by the Canada Manpower office at Winnipeg was given today for a project to trace tourist routes through southern Alberta. The study wfll be financed by the federal government's Local Initiatives Program and sponsored by the Travel and Convention A s s o c iation oE Southern Alberta. Civil servants donate A 5.8 per cent increase in donations by federal civil ser- vants was realized in the 1971 United Appeal campaign said George Coutts, federal cam- paign chairman.
