Ranchland Recreation Ltd., owned by Allan Jarvic, lias purchased Sadra Favroy, only the second Lipizzan stallion in Canada.. The Austrian horse will be- come a vital part of Ranchland School of Ridiug, said Peter Hale, general manager of the recreation complex miles east of Lethbridge on the old Coaldale road. The school has a Lipizzan mare coming from Tennesee, as part of its process of ac- quiring stock for the riders. The horses will also be shown in competitions by members of the school. Mr. Hale said the school will have good horses for all types and styles of riding. Sadra Favroy is a four-year- old stallion which exemplifies the breeding characteristics of Lippizzan horses highly in- telligent, gentle and good-man- nered. The horse is partly trained now and will be refined in dressage the complete train- ings of a horse to respond to slight commands of the rider. -The pedigree of Sadra Fav- roy has been traced back ]50 years. Originally from Spain, Buddhist scholarships awarded The Honpa Buddhist Church of Alberta awarded scholar- ships of each to Tom Sugi- moto and Fred Ulrich. The men received the scholar- ships for the purpose of pursu- ing Buddhism studies at the In- stitute of Buddhist Studies, Berkley, California. They lelt June 24.

There are only about 400 Lip- izzan stallions in the world to- day, all offspring from four stallions owned in Austria. A very high Jumping horse which Is fast and agile, the Lipizzans were first trained as war horses reserved for royal- ty. The high movements of the horse were designed to hcln protect the rider, and llu's trait his been carried into today and applied to showmanship In competitions. Horse fanciers can view Sad- ra Favroy at Kanchland Hiding School. It is standing at stud at the school, District communities need more nursing home beds By JOE MA Herald Stalf Writer Are there enough nursing home beds in southern Alberta? IE not, how many additional beds are needed, when will they be needed, and where should they bo located? To appraise Uie situation, the following facts should be taken into consideration. (1) The opening of the South- land Nursing Home gives southern Alberta, south of Vul- can and west ot Bow 435 nursing home beds, or about four beds per popu- lation. This compares with the provincial average of three beds per population. (2) Despite the fact that southern Alberta has a favor able bed-per-population ratio, the nursing homes report full occupancy. There is still a wait- ing list, though appreciably shorter (3) Both for patient welfare and taxpayers' money, nursing homes are preferred to hospit- als whenever it is possible to accommodate a patient in a nursing home instead of a hos- pital. (4) The majority of the beds (309) are located in Lethbridge, which has one-third of the popu- lation of southern Alberta. (5) To make, the nursing home operation cost-efficient, it should be relatively large, with 70 beds or more. (6) It !s a recognized human desire to live in a nursing home in the locality or as near as possible. (7) The distribution of popu- lation in southern Alberta is such that not every nursing I home candidate can live in a nursing home in his locality. (8) How near Is near? The Alberta Medical Association recommends 25 miles of grav- elled road or a travelling time of 45 minutes as being reason- able. (9) The provincial government appears to be following a pol- icy for more nursing homes and other support facilities in the health delivery system. The Lethbridge General and Auxiliary Hospital and Nursing Home District No. 65 Board has a standing commitment to give the Municipal District of Taber and all incorporated commun- ities in the SI.D. first priority Slovak bishop here Sunday Reverend Michael Rusnak of Toronto will be a guest of St. Peter and St. Paul's Greek Catholic Parish Sunday. He will celebrate a pontifical liturgy at a.m. in the church, at 640 12th St. C N. Bishop Rusnak is on a tour of oarishes in Western Canada as Apostolic Visitator for Slovaks of the Byzantine Rite. Following the service, mem- bers of the parish will host the Bishop at a coffee party in the parish hall. An invitation to attend has been extended to all persons of Slovak origin in the city and district to build a nursing home in the town of Taber, should addition- al nursing home beds be re- quired in southern Alberta out- side Lethbridge. In addition, the County of Warner and all incorporated communities in the county hnve requested that a nursing home be built in Raymond. The requested capacities o[ the nursing homes In Taber and Raymond are 75 and 60 re- spectively. Nursing home beds in Leth- bridge are open to all residents in southern Alberta, although in practice there are more pa- tients from Lethbridge. If, on a smaller scale, jay the nursing homes in Leth- bridge serve primarily the res- idents of communities within Ihe County of Lethbridge, then there is a ratio of one bed per 177 of the population. Since both the Taber ind Raymond requests say their proposed nursing homes will serve residents of communities within the M.D. of Taber and the County of Warner, a simi- lar ratio suggests that to be on par there should be 72 beds in the Town of Taber and 49 in the Town of Raymond.
