May run far council Kergan retires from city By HERB JOHNSON Staff Writer Bill Kergan, who retires July 15 as the city's preventive social services director, was honored Wednesday at a noon luncheon at the Park Plaza Motor Hotel. About 55 persons attended, most of them fellow city hall employees or representatives of the various agencies involved in preventive social service projects. Dr. Bob Eliiett, chairman of the preventive social services advisory committee, paid tribute to Mr. Kergan's abilities as an administrator. He emphasized that Mr. Kergan had always endeavored to "put people first." It was here, he said, that the retiring director bad always put forth his best effort. The excellent co - operation between the city's department and his own was noted by. Cam Bracken, Lethbridge area director for the department of social development. Dr. Stan Perkins, chairman of the Head Start board, said it was difficult to imagine a man with Mr. Kergan's abilities and energy fitting into the stereotype of the average retired person. This sentiment was echoed by Don Le Baron, administrator of the city's senior citizens homes, who, in a letter read by Rev. R. L. Crisfield of St. Augustine's Anglican Church, said Mr. Kergan had always been willing to "go the extra mile" in the performance of his duties.. Mr. Le Baron also suggested Mr. Kergan was unlikely to take it easy in retirement and wishes him luck in the election. (Mr. Kergan says he is giving "serious consideration" to running for a position on city council this October). Kay Jensen, public assistance officer for the city, presented Mr. Kergan with a flight bag and electric razor, both of whi^h can be used on a planned trip to Europe by Mr. Kergan and his wife Janette. Police Chief J. H. Carpenter came up with one of the better anecdotes concerning Mr. Kergan. He recalled the first arrest Mr. Kergan had made as a rookie-policeman with the Lethbridge force. As he told it, Bill encountered a thief emerging from the Arcade Poolroom one dark night and informed him he was under arrest. He became so flustered when the thief asked "What for?" Assault on youth nets man 30 days A Lethbridge man was sentenced to 30 days in jail when he pleaded guilty in Lethbridge magistrate's court to assaulting and injuring a 15-year - old youth. Court was told Ronald Arthur Jorgenson, 24, and a friend had followed a car and when it stopped at a stop sign Jorgenson went to the other car AND DANCE SATURDAY 8:00 TO 12:00 P.M.

He then opened the door of the car and attempted to pull the youth out, hitting and kicking him as he did so. Jorgenson's lawyer told the court Jorgenson was mad because he believed the youth driving the other car had cut him off. Judge L. W. Hudson said he could not understand where all the talk about love and peace he has heard from younger persons originates. "When you put youths and cars together it seems violence often results." The police report said Jorgenson had threatened to "kill" the youth if he went to the police. In a following trial resulting from the same incident Chuck Connors, 18, also of Lethbridge pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of common assault and was fined $75. Connors was a passenger in the Jorgenson car and accompanied Jorgenson when the assault was made. CLIFF BLACK, Certified Dental Mechanic BLACK DENTAL LAB Lower Level MEDICAL DENTAL BLDG. PHONE 327-2822 that he left the evidence (practically everything from the poolroom) in the alleyway. Chief Carpenter, who will retire this fall, joined the force shortly after Mr. Kergan, who started as a probationary constable in December of 1936. Mr. Kergan joined the armed forces during the Second World War, serving with the Royal Canadian Provost Corps overseas from 1941 to 1946. Returning to the police department, he was promoted to sergeant before assuming the combined position of school attendance officer and city welfare officer in 1948. He took over the welfare department on a full - time basis in 1957 and was appointed director of preventive social services in 1966. He was the first such director to be appointed in the province under the new program. He has also served two terms as president of the General Stewart branch of the Royal Canadian Legion and has been active in the Canadian Cancer Society. BILL KERGAN 35 years If you're a nostalgia buff, the time has come to get out a large supply of giant-sized handkerchiefs and put on your trainman's striped hat and coveralls. This morning was the start of "lasts" for CP Rail passenger service to and front Lethbridge. Affected is the Lethbridge-Calgary and Lethbridge-Medi-cme Hat dayliner service, which CP Rail has dropped because of uneconomical demand. Second-last trains and retirements from service abounded1 today, and the last train to Medicine Hat leaves this evening at 7 p.m. The same train becomes the last to. arrive in Lethbridge from Medicine Hat Saturday at 9:45 a.m., leaving 15 minutes later for Calgary- The End. While the reason for. the service's cancellation was lack of passenger interest, anyone watching the trains load and unload the past few days would find that difficult to believe. A couple of weeks ago so many people got on in Lethbridge that some tried to sneak chairs on board so they could sil, although the rules forbid it. The dayliner units seat 38 persons comfortably, but as many as 47 adults and 10 children have been taking a last ride on them. But cars have been consistently less than half full for the past few years, and the Canadian Transport Commission, which approved CP Rail's application for cancellation, had been told: "On one occasion in 1969 a small shipment of flowers was handled and on another occasion there was a shipment of baby chicks" - the only non-employee objects on the train. Passenger service started in southern Alberta in 1885, with a variety of -obscure train com- panies. At one point the coal and steam driven units crossed the Oldman River on wooden bridges at the same point as the high level bridge now sits. The bridges were constantly catching on fire from sparks spewed out of the fireboxes, which eventually resulted in construction of the new trestle, the longest and highest of its kind in the world. Many city residents bemoaning the passenger service cancellation are suggesting it will likely resume in a few years, but neither CP Rail officials nor other transportation companies seem to agree. Time Airlines is prepared for some additional traffic, and Greyhound Lines of Canada and Northern Bus Lines are es-tablishing new schedules. Northern has even applied for a special "luxury" service run to Calgary, with a proposed extension to Edmonton. Shopping centre plans tabled The Municipal Planning Commission Wednesday tabled an application for a neighborhood shopping centre and clinic at 2004-2024 Mayor Magrath Drive because adequate parking is not provided in the plans. The applicant, Dr. W. L. Mit-son, is expected to draw up new plans for submission to the MPC. Plans call for a grocery store, a clinic and a few offices and retail establishments. Estimated cost of the entire project is $100,000. Only the first stage, a retail outlet valued at about $50,000, was up for approval Wednesday. Dr. Mitson said there could be some variation in the total figure as the development progressed. Dr. Mitson also expressed concern to the MPC about lack of access to the site from Mayor Magrath. Drive, and asked whether such access might be provided in future. However, MPC chairman Aid. Joe Balla advised Dr. Mitson that city council and the provincial highways department have adopted a firm policy against providing any more access roads to Mayor Magrath Drive. The commission also approved an application for a restaurant at 1517 Mayor Magrath Drive. It would be located in the old car-check building, which would be extensively renovated. Dorigatti Construction Ltd. of Lethbridge expects to get started next week and the restaurant should be open in September. The project will cost an esti- Cat fire A fire resulted in undetermined damage to a Caterpillar tractor Thursday night. Lethbridge firefighters extinguished the tractor fire shortly after 10 p.m. in the parking lot of the Canadian Club, 10th Ave. and Venture Place N. Fire officials report the fire resulted when two unidentified youths started the machine and accidentally ignited some spilled fuel. ,500 damage Kenneth Allen of the West-side Trailer Park was not injured when the car he was driving struck a guard rail and light standard on an access road to Highway 3 near the river bottom bridge Thursday. There was $1,500 damage in the accident. Mr. Allen was alone at the time. Local bricklayers not sure of action Lethbridge bricklayers have not decided whether they will walk out if bricklayers in Edmonton and Calgary strike next week. A spokesman for Lethbridge Local 3, Bricklayers, Masons and Plasterers International Union of America, said city bricklayers did not participate in a vote last week authorizing a strike in Edmonton and Calgary. He did not indicate when a decision would be made regarding the Lethbridge situation. Negotiations for the Lethbridge union are being carried on in Edmonton by a union representative. The 35 bricklayers in the local union currently receive $4.65 an hour. The strike vote, resulting from a wage dispute with con- V SUMMER FUN TIME IS PICTURE TAKING TIME . .
