Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 4, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, July 4, 1970 if You Ask Me.. By HERB JOHNSON TT WAS SUGGESTED at a recent meeting of city council that Lethbridge can no longer support a symphony orchestra and the symphony association would do well to evaluate its operation and the level of support within the community. The only thing wrong with the suggestion is that no one needs a study to know that the efforts of the association or of any similar group in any city _ are simply sustaining a tradition that died shortly after the turn of the century. It is a commonplace among critics that the whole tradition of Western classical music exhausted its musical possibilities about the time Stravinsky wrote The Rite of Spring and has been searching for new directions ever since. It's been an uphill battle with successes few and far between most of them in the field of electronic music. This does not mean that classical music is not good music. It is. It's exciting to listen to (most of it, anyway) and satisfying to play. It's also good discipline for young players. But it is not growing. It is set and it will never grow Only the experimental music being made in the electronic music centres and some related fields is growing. Any activity that wants public support needs to be connected with something that is alive and ex- Wha't the symphony association needs is to switch its effort to some area of modern music that is still .growing and that would allow some room for creative endeavor on the part of the musicians and, perhaps, the audience. Experiments in aleatory or "chance music in schools in other parts of Canada have reportedly been well-received. Why not abandon the middle-aged au- dience that goes to hear Beethoven's Fifth out of a sense of duty and put some money and effort into some small group experimental music for amateur musicians? If they become excited about it perhaps audiences will too. City Cat Mocks Family Planning Voyageurs" To Arrive Monday Twenty-one Manitoba stu- dents vAll take tune off from provincial centennial celebra- tions to spend one week as guests of the East Lethbridge Rotary club as part of t h e Young Voyageurs program. The group, with too escorts, leaves Winnipeg July 5 and ar- rives in Lethbridge the follow- ing day to kick off a busy pro- gram setup by the local Ro- tary club. Dr. J. E.

By JUDI WALKER Herald Staff Writer We humans may think we have a corner on family plan- ning, but we don't: Mama Dede an eight-year-old Lethbridge cat has everyone's planning beat. She planned 70 for 70! Seventy kittens by the year 1970 that is; On June 25 Mama Dede gave birth to quadruplets and chalked them up as num- bers 67, 68, 69 and 70. She gazes up with a bored ex- pression on her black and while face. She's already heard the story her owner Mrs. M. Miller of 614 7th Ave. S., is telling about her childhood (or kitten- hood) eight years ago. Pixie, as she was known be- fore it became obvious.- that Mother (or Mama) Dede was much more suitable, was or- phaned when she was only 10 days old. Her human family, Edwin Shirley, Susan, Larry, Donnie and Mr. and Mrs. Miller took her in. 'We fed her with a dolly hot said Mrs. Miller, same formula as you'd give a baby. And we "gave her fre quent baths to keep her clean Probably this is the reason she now likes water she'll go ou and stand in the rain or ge her feet wet in the sink." Impairment Draws Sentence A Shaughnessy district man, John Serzysko, pleaded guilty in magistrate's court in Leth- bridge Friday to impaired driv- ing and unlawfully conveying liquor in a motor vehicle. Because of the problem Serzysko had with alcohol, Mag- istrate Lloyd Hudson sentenced him to three months in jail on the impaired charge and fined him and costs or 30 days in jail on the illegal conveyance charge, recommending the sen- tences be served in Belmont, a treatment centre for alcoholics near Edmonton. Serzysko said he wanted treatment so Magistrate Hud- son said he would make the sentences longer than usual in order for him to try and cure himself of his drinking prob- lem. Serzysko was previously convicted of impaired driving in 1968. The sentences will run con- secutively. Serzysko was also prohibited from driving anywhere in Can- ada for 14 months. She's slowing down in her ol age. "She used to have thre litters a year, but now she only has two." The Millers have had no trou ble giving away the kittens "The children just tell othe children, at school about the kit said Mrs. Miller. Two members of Mams De- e's family, Hot Dog and Fluf- y are still at home. The rest f the kittens, with the excep- ion of two who died in in- ancy "are scattered all over he district as far as Cole- man and Taber." Having 70 kittens isn't Mama Dede's only feat. She was once awarded first prize for being he cat with the softest coat during a Pet Day at the Ki- wanis Green Acres Playground. Her prize six cans of dog food. (Although Mama Dede is strictly a vegetarian, she did eat her dog food the differ- ence, perhaps, was the taste of She is also "the best alarm clock we've ever accord- ing to Mrs. Miller, "She meows to be let out at every morn- ing." "And, as Grandfather would say, a cat is the cheapest toy any child could have. It doesn't break the test time it's dropped." Mama Dede dislikes dogs: "She'll tear any dog matter how big it is." Like all heroines, however, Mama Dede has her weak- nesses. Hers are Christmas trees: it there is a Christmas tree, Mama Dede must climb it. And where there is a Christ- mas tree there are also Christ- mas tree decorations which must be knocked off and, usual- ly, broken. As the interview drew to a close, and Mama Dede's eyes began to close as well, the ques- tion of whether she'd be hav- ing another litter soon seemed unnecessary. "N-e-o-t she seemed to reply, "not now." HEINITZ PRINTERS STATIONERS LTD. 324 9th St. S. Phone 328-1778 FOR YOUR COMPLETE WEDDING REQUIREMENTS Invitation! Announcement!

As office manager for the Peigan band administration, Mr. Pard's duties range from payroll, band administration mail and supervising all cor- respondence, to maintenance of the death ledger, bookkeeping for all monthly general ledgers and issuance of permits and band orders. A graduate of the school of business education at the Lelh- bridge Commhnity College, Mr. Pard said the growing trend to education of the young people is the key to the success of the Indian movement. He said the parents of Indian students are to blame for lack of emphasis on higher educa- tion. 'When the average Indian student finishes grade 12, he doesn't think there is anything else he can he said. "Indian students are put down in high school because they don't have any confidence instilled in them by the home environment. The parents don't push education as the most im- portant thing for young people the way they should." He said there is a communi- cation breakdown with both parents and students in that many don't realize there is money available through the department of Indian affairs for higher education for all In- dian students who have the re- quirements. This is a changing phenome- non and in 10 years (when the leaders of the Indian people will be belter the changes for the good of the In- dian people will be greater. on the payroll of the adminis- tration but there are only so many jobs available. "With the changes in the way of life on the reserve, there will be more opportunities for the people to work and to use their education on the Mr. Pard said. Admitted To Alberta Bar MR. ROBERT W.
