Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 10, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, July 10, 1970 JVo VD Increase In Lethbridge Area There is no venereal disease epidemic in Alberta. Despite n popular belief that VD is increasing, there has been no increase in the number of cases of either syphillis or gonorrhea treated in the Leth- bridge area according to Mrs. M. L. Larson, supervisor of the Alberta public health depart- ment. "The picture, continues to be the said Mrs. Larson. "The incidence of both diseases is lower than it was1 during the immediate post war time." She said the picture in the Lelhbridge area doesn't change very much, although there may be an epidemic of gonorrhea reported in the United States. Any person who feels he or she may have contracted a venereal disease can either see their own physician, or go to tlie provincial clinic in the base- ment of the Lethbridgc Munici- pal Hospital. Fire Inspection Covers 241 Homes The Lethbridge fire depart- ment's fire prevention bureau has completed the first month of its home inspection pro- gram. The bureau has logged nine .days of in home inspection. There were 241 homes inspect- ed, 30 refused to have their homes inspected for fire safety and 141 were not at home. The main faults firemen found when inspecting the homes were over fusing, base- ment hazards and electrical faults. Other fire hazards were fur- nace problems, venting leaks, improper garbage burning, im- proper paint storage and a natural gas leak in one home. The approximate area cover- ed was between 1st Ave. and 9th Ave. and 9th St. and 13th St. S. The home inspection program will continue throughout the summer, usually three days a week, but not in poor weather. The Lethbridge fire depart- ment has asked the co-opera- tion of tlis public to allow the fire prevention bureau to help prevent fires. Matching Tax Information Reveals Fraudulent Returns The income tax headache may be over for the taxpayer, but it's just beginning for the department of national revenue. National revenue is now matching the T4 slips issued by employers against the informa- tion reported by the taxpayers. If the two don't match, a rea- son must be found and a re- vised assessment notice issued. Where fraud is suspected, the special investigations branch takes over. The matching, which was once done by hand, Is now done by computer. More than 13 million T4 slips will be matched this year. WEST SIDE WATER PUMPS-These three new high-lift pumps, each costing will be used to pump water across the river to lethbridge's west side. Testing of the pumps started Thursday, with the first water going through late in the afternoon. The University of lethbridge contraction site should be receiving water through the system, which includes two 20-inch diameter pipelines under the river, by the middle of the month. One of the pumps has a constant speed while the other two are variable speed pumps. A Flowmatcher control maintains a constant water pressure through the two vari- able speed pumps. Teen Clefs In Japan Blondes Popular At Expo Editor's Note: This is the sec- ond of five reports written by senior members of the Leth- bridge singing group, The Teen Clefs, and sent directly to The Herald from Expo 70, where the Clefs are giving daily perfor- mances on Expo's Floating Stage. If I have only one life to live let me live it as a blond in Japan. Trie crowds seem to be at- tracted to blondes as one choir member, Henny Van Egteren, found out when she was asked to go-go dance with the lead singer of one of the popular bands In Japan, during a per- formance on the floating stage. After our first day in Japan and a nice long rest most the girls were up bright and early to be ready for first morning rehearsal at 8 o'clock. If the choir thought 2te hours practices ware long they quick- ly changed their minds after 4 hours of long hard1 work in the hot sun. The only refreshment was the pleasure of dangling feet in the water surrounding the floating stage. Not only did it Neivspaper Use In Class Subject Of August Semincr Mrs. Yvonne Christmas, a teacher at the R. I.

The pavilions show great or- iginality, and contrast. The de- sign of the fair illustrates their keen sense of perfection as does the production of the per- formances. Tile choir's first performance was a great success. Adding to the success of the show were the many Lethbridge fans in- cluding a former Teen Clefs member Gail Stringam. Also at the Teen Clefs' first per- formance Mrs. Harrison made her big detmt turning pages with thousands of people watch- ing. Canadian girls are igreeted very favorably by the Japanese public and when in uniform the choir members are asked for autographs and photo- Two of the girls have al- ready received a bouquet of flowers from a Japanese ad- mirer. Another interesting incident brought two of the girls two cokes each when they mis- takenly used their Japanese. Jokingly one of the girls put out her hand when Fukushirna was handing Nishi yen. Fukushirna then asked if they wanted cora (cola) and one of the girls asked how many in Japanese. Nishi returned with six cokes. So much for their Japanese. Our day was rounded 'off by a trip to downtown Osaka. During the drive it was amazing to see the economical use the people make of their land. The squared-off rice Bad- dies lay side by side like a patchwork quilt. The highlight of the shopping in Osaka was buying geta (Japanese sandels with blocks of wood under- by Jeffry Cahnon, Mar- go and Karen Clelland and Marni Johnson. Many Japanese' shoe mana- gers become very frustrated when constantly asked for the largest size in foot wear. Because of our subway trip they all felt they had had a very eventful day. On retiring we realized that although Japan and Expo are spectacular, we had a real "yen" to see all of you.
