Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 24, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 13 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, January 24, 1975 City Scene U of L election Feb. 5 The University of Lethbridge student council altered its constitution this week to allow the student body to elect its representatives for specific positions. When the students go to the polls Feb. 5, they will be able to select their favorite candidate for finance officer, internal governor, president and social activity and athletic officers. They are also to elect four councillors at large. Prior to the constitution change, students elected a presi- dent and eight councillors and then the elected representatives decided who would fill the officer positions. Seniors' students fees waived All student union fees have been waved for senior citizens by the University of Lethbridge students' council. The action by the council follows a decision late last year by the university board of governors to abolish all tuition fees for senior citizens. Arctic Gas official to speak The Lethbridge branch of the Association of Professional Engineers, Geologists and Geophysicists will meet Jan. 30 at Ericksen's Family Restaurant. Alec Hemstock will give a talk on the Canadian Arctic Gas study. He is manager of environmental studies for Arctic Gas. The meeting begins at p.m. and members of the Medicine Hat branch and engineering technologists have been invited. Big Brothers meet Feb. 5 The annual meeting of the Lethbridge and District Big Brothers Association will be held at 8 p.m. Feb. 5 in the Red Cross Building. The two-year-old association has established 18 one man one-boy relationships for fatherless boys. Guest speaker at the meeting will be Cliff Hall of Hamilton, Ont., agency relations director for Big Brothers of Canada. Labor Council names officers Cow Camp teacher granted six-months of grace BROOKS (Special) American teacher Jeff Smith and his wilderness Cow Camp school on the Vee Bar Vee Ranch 55 miles northeast of here have been granted six months grace on deportation proceedings. Federal Immigration Minister Robert Andras has informed Mr. Smith he can remain in this country until June 30. Mr. Smith does not have landed immigrant status. Earlier Mr. Andras granted him an extension until Jan. 31. This gives Bow Valley MLA Fred Mandeville of Brooks time to seek approval on behalf of the school from Premier Peter Lougheed. Health and Social Development Minister Neil Crawford has refused to approve the school. He says the matter is Mr. Andras' respon- sibility. Provincial approval of the school has been a stipulation from the im- migration department to allow it to continue operation in this country, according to Mr. Smith.' The school has American students under a non-approved program. "All we says Mr. Smith, "Is a letter of endorsement from the provincial government saying we are doing a decent job." Says Mr. Smith: "I boil the whole thing down to just one man, the stubborness of a single man in government (Mr. Crawford) who is preventing any progress." Immigration officials allow the students into this country on a short- term basis for 90 days because Cow Camp is not on their list of approved schools. "I think the immigration people have been most sympathetic and they have extended our stay several says Mr. Smith. He says most of his students have learning disabilities. They are not hippies or juvenile delinquents. "Only two out of nine young peo-' pie have any kind of court he says. "Cow Camp is a working ranch situation. Hippies couldn't make it out here, I promise you." Officers elected Wednesday to assist Lethbridge and District Labor Council Presi- dent Larry Mead were: John Erais, Canadian Union of Public Employees Local 70, vice president; Jim Pickles, United Brewery Workers Local 245, secretary treasurer, and Al Packard of the same local, recording secretary.

REV. MORSE GOODMAN Anglican Biihop of Calgary By LYNNE VAN LUVEN Herald Family Editor A pleasant surprise awaits those Lethbridge theatre goers who seek their enter- tainment at the Yates Memorial Centre this weekend. And if they like the dense, vivid imagery and rich cadence of the Welsh poet Dylan Thomas, so much the better. Catholic Central High School's Under Milk Wood opened to a small crowd Thursday evening, but was a stirring and evocative re creation of one day in the lives of the inhabitants in an in- significant Welsh fishing village. The 13 CCHS student actors and actresses very ably led the audience through a wide span of emotions, as they followed villagers' dreams, thoughts and actions from dusk to dusk of an average day. The characters in Thomas' play were brought to life with dexterity, made realistic by small touches of humor and pathos. Producer director Peter Mueller is to be roundly prais- ed for giving students a chance to undertake a vehicle a little more demanding than the usual high school musical or melodrama. And the audience certainly appreciated the other than ordinary fare. Plaudits to the students themselves for rising to the challenge so well.

The students' sketched the characters so well that snatches of them left the theatre with the audience, whose ears were still full of the lilt of the villagers' conversations. Outstanding performer of the evening was Shelley Ir- vine, whose flawless narra- tion of (he play was done with fine sensitivity. Lillian Kalodziej was also a natural, convincing and sadly charm-' ing Polly, mothering many in- fants, no man's wife and thus the source of endless village gossip. CCHS's Under Milk Wood was not letter perfect open- ing night. However, a few fluffed lines can surely be remedied for subsequent per- formances. Thomas' play is a production that relies solely on the actors' ability to im- part a moment, the essence of a character's lifetime, in a few words and gestures, with a minimum of props or costumes of the traditional sense. Considering that, the high school came up with a remarkably smooth produc- tion, well worth the adult admission. Under Milk Wood continues tonight and Saturday at the Yates at p.m. with a stu- dent matinee at p.m. Sun- day and a final p.m. per- formance the same day. A man who said he was too drunk to remember anything after 8 p.m. the night he was involved in a serious car ac- cident, was convicted of three charges in provincial court Thursday. Vance Vincent Scout, 19, of Magrath was given a one year suspended sentence for taking a car without the owner's consent, was fined and had his licence suspended for three months on a careless driving charge and was fined for driving without a licence. The charges arose from an Oct. 12 accident in which Mr. Scout and a passenger in another car were seriously in- jured. About damage was reported from the 5 a.m. accident. Mr. Scout was southbound on Mayor Magrath Drive South when he was in collision with a northbpund car. The northbound car was attempting to (urn left when the collision occurred, court was told. The driver of the northbound car was Patsy Hacior, 23, 2240 Mayor Magrath Drive. Mrs. Hacior's husband, a passenger in the vehicle, was injured. Sgt. Alex Park of the Lethbridge city police, who attended the accident, said when he arrived at the scene Mr. Scout's car was lying on the roof. William Roy Olson of Magrath, the owner of the car Mr. Scout was driving, told the court he had been drinking with Mr. Scout the evening of Oct. 11. Mr. Olson testified he gave Mr. Scout and a friend of Mr Scout's a ride to Magrath. When they arrived in Magrath Mr. Olson said he drove to the cemetery to look at his brother's grave. He just got out of the car and was walking to the grave when his car sped off. Mr. Scout told the court he couldn't remember anything that happened after 8 p.m. that night. Cardston RCMP said Thurs- day that 96 tickets to Games basketball competition at Cardston High School were purloined Tuesday. RCMP said they have a suspect, but no charges have been laid. Police said they ex- pect to recover the missing tickets today. The tickets were lifted from Cardston's only Games ticket office, a men's wear store owned by Bill Meyer. Mr. Meyer said he sold some tickets at 11 a.m. Tues- day and some more later the same day. "When I came back to sell the tickets at 2 p.m., I noticed a bunch were mis- sing." Mr. Meyer said police will probably recover the stolen tickets because "it's not too hard to run something like that down there's no way anyone could pass those tickets." All tickets, for event 96, belong to. series 13 and are numbered 0404 to 0500. Cardston High School prin- cipal and Cardston venue manager Hubert West told The Herald if the hot tickets are not recovered, "we'll be able to check them at the door." "We announced through the school that these were hot tickets and anyone caught with them would be charged with theft." Guilty plea A 29 year old Edmonton man who pleaded guilty in provincial court Wednesday to obtaining two loans by fraud was remanded in custody until Jan. 30 for sentencing. Court was told on March 12, 1974, Charles Goodine obtain- ed a loan of from Avco Finances of Lethbridge using the name of a friend. On March 27 he obtained a loan of using his friend's name.

You really should have one for the little cuts and scratches that are always occurring in every family. Dettol is excellent, and another small, but important item to keep in your cabinet is don't forget you'll need infant- size aspirin if you have small children. Many people forget that aspirin can be effective not only for h-adaehes but also for earaches, toothaches and can help with pain from burns, also. And a lax- ative? This should be a must in your medicine cabinet but always rem- ember that in case of severe abdominal pain should always con- act your doctor and mmediately. Don't use a laxative in that case be- cause there can be dang- er of appendicitis. STUB8SHUMUCYLTD. Open daily 1.111. to p.m. Sundayt and 12 noon to p.m I 6.P.6.D.
