Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 30, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 - THE IETHBRIDOE HIRAID - Saturday, January 30, 1971 // You Ask Me.. By HERB JOHNSON J^AST WEEK in this column Bev Carlson launched an attack on men, specifically on the way they dress. She said we were sloppy and had a noticeable tendency to look like we had "just come off a two-day bender." She's right, of course. Most men still give as much thought to their apparel as they do to the internal politics of Outer Mongolia. But a word of explanation is in order. Actually the whole thing is a direct result of man's desire to do things in the easiest way possible. Many years ago somebody (an early sociologist perhaps) figured out there was such a thing as class �tructure in society. The problem was that there was no easy method of pigeonholing people and putting them into the right class. Everybody went around wearing old bearskins and one bearskin is pretty much like another. You couldn't tell the local used-car dealer from the bank president. So our sociologist came to the conclusion that the thing to do was to do away with this uniformity and make everyone's clothes appropriate to his calling, thereby making identification easy. This was done. Man's wonderful technology, primitive as it was, managed to come up with some miracle fibres such as wool and cotton, and clothes were invented. Since that time every man has had to wear a costume suitable to his type of work. Businessmen wear what are called "businessmen's suits", construction workers wear khaki overalls and so on. The problem is that men have come to believe that as long as they are wearing the proper costume, they are well dressed. This, of course, is a fallacy. And here lies the root of the problem noted by Miss Carlson - that of men wearing the same clothes until they fall off. The solution is simple - convince men that wearing a suit does not necessarily mean they are well-dressed. Show them that all it means is that they are appropriately clothed for their particular niche in the class structure. The thing to do is ban these "uniforms" that make identification easy. Let each man do his own thing. Let bankers wear blue jeans to the office, if they want to. If this becomes confusing, let them wear tags that say "banker." Once men have been liberated from the uniform idea and have some room for creativity, they will blossom forth and become veritable peacocks. Increased exports of poultry unlikely Southern Alberta poultry producers could export more poultry, but first would have to reassess present methods of operation and examine the needs of other countries. Sherry Clark, poultry specialist with the Alberta depart-ment of agriculture in Lethbridge, says Canada is basically not set up to be a major exporter of poultry. "Much of the present export demand is for processed food which Canada does not have," said Mr. Clark. The U.S. is apparently one of the world's major poultry exporters, and because of its close proximity to Canada is a formidable competitor. Mr. Clark said one of the reasons the U.S. does so well on the export market is because of its fully integrated operations. Production costs are naturally lower with these start-to-finish operations, another rea son Canada cannot compete at the present time. Church members are urged to avoid being 'clannish9 Members of the LDS Church were urged Friday not to be "clannish" and to get acquainted with their neighbors. The message was given by Elder LeGrand Richards, a member of the Council of The Twelve Apostles of the church. He was speaking to some 600 church members and their guests from southern Alberta centres at a missionary meeting in Lethbridge. He said each member has a responsibility to tell his neighbor about the church and invite them to hear the gospel message. He said he knew a man from Omaha who lived in the church-headquarters centre of Salt INSURANCE  LIABILITY  BONDS  AUTO  FIRE ROSSITER AGENCIES ITO. ESTABLISHED 1911 lower Floor 517 4th Ave. S. Phone 327-1541 Mr. Clark said that even if Canada could develop efficient integrated operations, producers would still not be assured sales. It seems many countries of the world do not include poultry as part of their regular diet. Pork is the usual substitute. "Pork and poultry directly replace each other depending on which is cheaper." Canada has exported limited amounts of poultry in past years, 500,000 head of turkeys went to the U.S. in 1969, and quantities of necks, backs and cheaper cuts go to Hong Kong and Taiwan where they are used for soup stock. Apparently 1971 would not be a good year for Canada to contemplate poultry exports anyway, with reports from the U.S. department of agriculture calling for an 11 per cent reduction in poultry supplies. The reduction of poultry is believed to be a result of the current pork glut. Adapter lets car run on natural gas A demonstration of a natural gas car highlighted the regular monthly meeting here of the Alberta Society of Engineering Technologists. About 35 technologists and Lake City for 17 years without being invited to church. The man later joined the church | when he moved back to Omaha. Elder Richards said members need not apologize for the Gospel of Jesus Christ and its eternal principles. He suggested there is a lot of talk about the philosophers today and quoted a church scholar Dr. Hugh Nibley, who said: "The philosophers can lead you to the grave - and then they have to turn to the prophets and the gospel." Emphasizing the expanding benefits of missionary work, he recounted the story of a man and his wife who had joined the church 60 years ago in Holland. "From this couple," he said, "have come 154 direct descendants - 43 family units - 35 full-time missionaries each serving two years in seeking converts to the church." Electronic secretary for city hall Lethbridge's city hall is scheduled to take another step into the electronic age at 5 p.m. Monday. At that time a new electronic secretary is to take over (for the night hours only) from receptionist Betty Gal. Miss Gal's voice will remain on duty, through the magic of tape recordings, to tell callers that city hall is closed and will open again in the morning. The voice then lists several emergency numbers and invites the caller to leave a message. The city formerly subscribed | to an answering service. The electronic secretary was brought in as an economy measure. members of the Association of Professional Engineers observed the natural gas car in action. The car, owned by Canadian Western Natural Gas Co. Ltd operates on both natural gas and conventional gasoline made possible by the installation of a simple adapter. Officials say the main feature of the car is its low pollution emissions compared with regular gasoline engines. Carbon monoxide emissions are reduced by 97 per cent, hydrocarbon emissions by 52 per cent and oxide of nitrogen emissions by 74 per cent. They say that natural gas is more efficient than regular gasoline and results in only a slight reduction in power. Oil need only be changed once a year, and spark plugs replaced every 50,000 miles. The equivalent cost compared with gasoline is about 14 cents a gallon. The adapter, which fits over a regular gas carburetor, costs about $450, but is not yet available on the automotive market. Bank robber gets five years Ralph John Weber, a Lethbridge man charged with robbing a Warner bank of $3,500 Oct. 23, was sentenced Friday to five years in prison. Weber had earlier pleaded guilty to the armed robbery charge, and also pleaded guilty to three charges of false pretences, which netted him three concurrent six-month sentences Friday. In another case, Ronald George Lazarick, 17, of Lethbridge was sentenced to three months concurrent on each of two charges of forging and uttering false cheques Dec. 22 and 23. Lazarick also had pleaded guilty. Prepaid taxes exceeding last year A total of $77,410 In prepaid taxes was received by the city's treasury department in the week ending Jan. 28. Only $56,150 was received In tit* same week a year ago. Total prepayments so far this year compare favorably with 1970. To date $587,860 has been taken in, compared with $509,-600 for the same period last year. Prepaid taxes earn Interest at the rate of six per cent up until the end of June. UNIVERSITY ART SHOW - An exhibition of art works, in various media, collected in the past 15 years by two members of the University of Lethbridge art department, will continue on display at the university art gallery to Feb. 10. Thes 61 works, including prints, ceramics, paintings, sculpture, photographs and a wall-hanging, were collected by associate professor Charles Crane and assistant professor Larry Weaver, and their wives, from Canadian, American and African sources. The first Collectors' Exhibition to be seen at the U of L, the show is open to the public 9 a.m.  4:30 p.m. Mondays through Fridays in Old Fort Whoop-Up.

However, the weatherman suggests, if a few of those details don't come to pass, the weather may stay cold, or the snow may start pouring down, or - who knows? The weather front is currently to the south of Lethbridge, causing some rain in Montana, but is expected to move north of the city by tomorrow morning. Rain is highly unlikely for Lethbridge. Last night's low was six below zero. Seven - tenths of an inch of snow fell Friday night. Today's high was forecast at about 10 above, and tonight's low will be around the zero mark. Little call for synopsis on sewage Copies of a synopsis of the city's new sewerage service charge bylaw have been available at city hall since Wednesday. Prepared by City Manager Tom Nutting, the synopsis is intended to provide basic information related to the bylaw for interested citizens. Out of the approximately 50 copies prepared, two had been picked up by noon Friday. One of these was obtained by a member of the news media. It has been suggested that perhaps everyone has had it "right up to here" with sewage. TO SYMBOLIZE FOND MEMORY Choose wisely the monument to honor your loved ones. We will be pleased to assist you. LETHBRIDGE MONUMENTAL AND TILE WORKS LTD. "Wo Have Been Satisfying Customers for Over. 60 Years" 325 8th St. S., lethbridge Phone 327-3920 Park road reopening The Indian Battle Park road between the park and the intersection with Highway 3 is scheduled to reopen this weekend. The road has been closed since last week because of construction work. Crews have been installing a siphon line between the south and north side sewage treatment plants as part of the city's secondary sewage treatment facilities. Work in this area was to be completed before the weekend. Population at 40,856 All the census forms have been counted and verified and the final figure is 40,856. Lethbridge's population was given unofficially Thursday as 40,844, but a few more census forms were added Friday morning. Lat year's count was 39,552. The future of the University of Lethbridge student newspaper, The Meliorist, will be settled Sunday evening by a special meeting of the U of L students' society council. The meeting was made necessary by somewhat ambiguous results from a referendum held Wednesday, in which 85 per cent of students said they wanted a student newspaper, but only 44 per cent said they "could tolerate," as the referendum asked, the political and social views the paper offered. Robin Dann, SSC president and legally the publisher of the paper, said he thought the results would mean the council would have to seek a new staff, since he did not believe the existing staff "could change its spots" as the majority of students seem to want them to do. However, he said, the final decision would be up to the council. Allan Wilson, editor of the paper since November, said he was a bit disappointed in the results, but offered a different interpretation of the figures in the referendum response. "Only 40 per cent of the stu- dents voted, which means we probably heard from the ones who are the most concerned about The Meliorist," he said. "Eighty - five per cent of them said they did want a newspaper, which was 491 of the 577 students who voted. Group at Coaldale Tlw New Wine, a six-member folksinging group from Leth bridge will perform at the Mennonite Conference Church in Coaldale tonight starting at 8 o'clock. Members of the group are Glenn Thompson, Ron Harris, Ben Martin, Brian Tollin, Louis Trimmer and Bev Carlson. Businessmen meet Monday The first general meeting of the North Lethbridge Businessmen's Association will be held in the York Hotel Monday at 8 p.m. Paul Anctil, public relations chairman for the association, said the executive has urged all businessmen in North Lethbridge to be present. "The strength of the association depends on the activity and numbers of the members," he said. And 251 of those 491 students said they could accept the paper's viewpoint - you can't include the ones who said they want no paper at all, because they look at it from a com pletely different viewpoint. "That means a majority (51 per cent) of the students who want a paper, want us," Mr. Wilson said. He said he plans to continue the policies started with the Jan. 22 paper, which contained local university stories as well as national and international student news. "We'd also like to hear from students who don't like us what they'd like to see in the paper," he said. "If they tell us, we'll find it and print it."
