Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 27, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 - THE IETHBR1DGE HERALD - Wadnaiday, January 77,1�7I Notley predicts Socred defeat Greg Royer Annemarie Sahafter Lead roles set for CCH production Two Grade 12 students, Greg Royer and Annemarie Schef-ter, will take the lead roles in Catholic Central High School's production of The Mouse That Roared. The comedy, directed by CCH drama teacher Gloria Ar-mel, runs Feb. 26-28 at the Yates Memorial Centre and will involve a cast of about 50, most of them from the school's drama club. Mr. Royer, 18, who appeared in a main role last year in the school's production of The Merry Widow, has been cast as Tully Bascom. Miss Schefter, 17, will take the role of Gloriana the Twelfth. The play, adapted into a screen version starring Peter Sellers, revolves around the idea that the U.S. tends to finance the rehabilitation of countries it defeats, as it did Western Europe through the Marshall Plan after the Second World War. Accordingly, the Duchy of Grand Fenwick, a minuscule, debt-ridden East European country declares war in the hopes of being defeated and then rehabilitated.. Plans go awry, however, when the U.S., taken by surprise, is defeated by Grand Fenwick. Also taking main roles will be Randy Moroz, Nick Previ-sich, Larry Anderson, Dave Kato, Steve Meszaros, Randy Royer, Leigh Parkinson and Madja Pahulje. The Mouse That Roared will be entirely student-produced, with CCHS teachers acting as advisers, notably in the areas of music, sets and costumes. The comedy will be the first full-length drama produced by the school at the Yates. Previous productions have been : Chonita in 1968, Briga* doon in 1969 and The Merry Widow tost' year. Tickets are expected to go on sale this week at Leister's Music Store. Chamber gives warning on career-type schools By JOAN BOWMAN Herald Staff Writer New Democratic Party Leader Grant Notley predicted Tuesday the ruling Social Credit party will lose the next provincial election and be replaced by the Progressive Conservatives. Mr. Notley, in town to meet with the Lethbridge NDP association, said the Socreds will "lose heavily in the cities" and In a number of rural ridings.* position of major* tty party in the legislature, Social Credit "will die." The NDP expects to field close to the maximum of 75 candidates, and if a few are elected, the legislature will develop right- and left-wing poll* tics, he said. As Social Credit declines, a "very appreciable proportion" of its followers will turn to the NDP. "If we get even four or five elected this time, we'll never look back." He saicTthe decline and fall of the Liberal party in Alberta has helped the NDP through switching of party allegiance, The Liberal party is composed of "dispirited, disorgan ized and disinterested people." The next election will be called by Premier Harry Strom, probably in early June, when "fanners are too tired to think but not to vote," Mr. Notley contended. He said the election would he fought between "two good' time Charlies" (Mr. Strom and Conservative leader Peter Lougheed) with Mr. Lougheed winning' out because he has "more political sex appeal." He described the recent Con servative annual meeting as being "shockingly barren" of policy. "Never have so many said so little so smoothly." Mr. Notley said the Conservative's method of using a computer to weigh answers to a delegates' poll "hearkened back to the worst days of Social Credit." The method of handing the answers to a "secret, un-named policy committee" was. a system which former premier "Ab* erhart would have taken excep- tion to in his most arbitrary days.'' The NDP has named 27 candidates so far. Election of candidates in the East and West Lethbridge ridings is scheduled for March 3, probably at the Labor Club. Petroleum issue key topic The New Democratic Party of Alberta will propose at its annual meeting in Edmonton next month that the federal government study the feasibility of Canada joining the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries. The proposal, one of 17 included in a party statement on energy resources, notes that membership in the organization would allow Canada to bargain with other export countries In determining royalty rates. The draft statement, to be considered at the annual meeting in the Chateau Lacombe Feb. 6-8, is highly critical of both federal and provincial governments for their handling of energy ownership, price systems and development. The governments "have yielded to the decisions of giant multl - national corporations pursuing their own long term plans," the statement says. "Canadians pay prices for petroleum products that are established in the interests of foreign companies. Royalties are scandalously low. Little is done to use our energy resources to develop our own manufacturing industries." The statement indicates the NDP rejects any "continental' energy plan, which "implicitly assumes development of Canadian resources by the same corporations which now dominate the energy field." The statement suggests a Humane group organized at meeting Twelve persons turned out Tuesday at an organizational meeting of a local humane society. The group, being organized by Mrs. Vi Kandel, needed only five persons in order to apply to the societies branch of the provincial government for incorporation as a society. Mrs. Kandel said the next step is to become incorporated under the Societies Act and then begin a membership drive. The group is to be known as th� Lethbridge and District Humane Society. It will be completely independent, Mrs, Kandel said, and not affiliated with the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, Election of officers will be held after the group is incorporated. remedial plan should involve 'government as a competitor, government as a regulator, selective nationalization as well as private and co-operative ownership." A federal government policy should include building of an oil pipeline from the west to Montreal; more government directors on the board of Pan* arctic Oil Company; public ownership of all interprovincial pipelines and revamping of the present method of licensing mineral and energy resources. The statement also indicates an NDP provincial government would introduce selective nationalization, such as of utility monopolies, and public ownership of resources "where the reserves are great and the initial investment relatively low." The Athabasca Tar Sands should be developed by a crown corporation and reserve limits on gas, coal and water should be extended from SO years to 50-100 years.

By RIC SWIHART Herald Staff Writer The Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce today issued a warning to all students and parents to seek advice and counsel before committing themselves to career and technical schools offering short courses for better job opportunities. Wilf Bowns, manager of the Lethbridge chamber, said many approaches have been made to the youth in south Alberta from career and technical schools froir: outside the province in both Canada and the United States indicating a short course and sums of money from $600 up will make the route to a good job easier. "One recent case involved a young girl from Raymond who took a short course involving service in the air industry," said Mr. Bowns. "In writing to the two major air lines in Canada, we find that training in such a school would be of no help what so ever in obtaining a position." Education The air lines provide the training essential for steady employment in such a case. Mr. Bowns said all students and parents should be made aware of these schools and should seek counselling before | committing themselves by signing any papers or issuing any funds. Magnesium vital in egg production Down 90 prices for Mayfoir-Yogue's final marltdowns . . . balance of our fall fashions must gol target of study The Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce e d ucalion committee has formed three sub-committees to look into matters concerning education and use of school property in the city. The sub-committee, headed by Al McFaddcn, will attempt to come up with new ideas to better get the principles of private enterprise across to students. Jim Dodd will head the subcommittee to help promote increased use of school facilities after school hours by the public. In 1970, :�1.000 people used school facilities after school hours. It was felt this figure car be increased appreciably. An attempt to get career counselling resource personnel, not available in the city from business anrl industry, for talks with students and school counsellors will be handled by a sub - committee headed by Dwight Jensen. This committee will try to get resource people who visit the city to talk with students and counsellors (o inform them of educational requirements of their profession and look for in the field other tiiinj',3. Laying hens must have am adequate supply of magnesium to achieve maximum egg production and hatchibllity. Dr. E. E. Gardiner, poultry nutritionist at the Lethbridge Research Station, says early results of tests he is conducting indicate magnesium may also be a factor in egg shell quality. In the tests, magnesium was provided in feed for laying hens at levels of zero, 250, 500, 730 and 1,000 parts per million. After less than three months on test, it was evident that at the two lowest magnesium levels the birds' normal production pattern was affected. The maximum production obtained at zero and 230 parts per million was about 20 per cent below normal. On a normal diet about 92 per cent of the eggs would have been fertile and capable of producing chicks. However, when the magnesium was reduced to 250 parts, hatchibility declined to 55 per cent and fell to 40 per cent when the magnesium level was held at zero. Dr. Gardiner says eggshell quality is determined by the specific gravity method, and is directly related to the magnesium in the diet. Although he can find no scientific evidence to substantiate his view, he believes a direct relationship also exists between eggshell strength and the level of magnesum in the diet. Since commercial poultry feeds contain about 1,500 parts per million of magnesium, de- ficiencies in the element would i not be expected under normal | circumstances. Although the availability of magnesium in natural feeds is not known, the Lethbridge study has indicated that only about 30 per cent of the magnesium is available for eggshell formation. This suggests that under certain conditions, magnesium and calcium could be the limiting factor in eggshell strength. Since magnesium and calcium are known to react in other | biological systems, Dr. Gardiner said it is surprising the relationship between these two elements in eggshell formation has not been more closely studied.
