Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 10, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Jg THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID Monday, July 10, 1972 ivmcv Alberta's top all-girl band to go on European tour By JIM POLING EDMONTON (CP) Sur- round the average guy with 200 girls armed wilh drums and bugles and he'll shatter as easily as a piece of deli- cate crystal. Not Bob Nagel. He lives much of his life in such cir- cumstances and thrives. He's owner of, and band- master tor, the Alberta AH- Girls Drum and Bugle Band, a group which has won ac- claim across Norlh America and now has its sighls on Eu- rope. Actually, he doesn't have to deal with all 200 girls at the same broken into junior and senior divi- sions. The 100-m ember senior band, composed of girls be- tween 14 and 18 years old, has been selected to play at the opening ceremonies for the Olympic Games in Munich, Germany, this August. They're taking that opportu- nity to tour Europe and will stage performances in France, at the Highland Games in Edinburgh and on the BBC television network. Mr. Nagel, 32, formed the band two years ago and since has taken the senior girls on tours of Mexico, the United States and Canada. This spring, the senior section cap- tured lop honors in the fancy ilvill and open test piece com- petitions at the Moose Jaw Kinsmen Inlcrnaliciial Esnd Festival. To Mr. Nagel, the hand is a job, a business venture and a hobby, all rolled into one. He charges people to hear it, and although its a non-profit or- ganization, he's allowed by law lo take 10 per cent of its income. "Not that I ever he says. "Costs are liigh and we need a lot of money to keep going. This year we spent on new instruments." He also has been spending big money to bring in top in- structors from the United States. During the winter, says Mr. Nagel, a musician and one- time show promoter, the girls practise three times a week. At a recent clinic they re- hearsed from 7 a.m. to 1 a.m. the next day. The long hours of practice have paid off, he says. "It's a big sound now. A dy- namic sound. We're really going to shake them up over there Mr. Nagel's ambition is to make the Alberta girls the world's greatest band. And, it's because the girls share THE BETTER HALF By Barnes "How should I know what the dale is? this goal that they're so good, he says. "We're doing things that a hand just doesn't do. Like playing in ring in Mex- ico or at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas." The band has three buses which cany the girls between bookings at festivals, rodeos, parades and other engage- ments during the summer. They have a mobile kitchen and sleep in gymnasiums, au- ditoriums, or even outside if nothing else is available. How do you keep 100 young, enthusiastic women in line when they're on the road? You employ one "fantastic" female chaperone and have a. demerit system, says Mr. Nagel. If a girl gels too many demerits, she is sent home. DKINKS FORBIDDEN Drinlang is forbidden and any girl caught smoking a second time has to leave the band. An average of two girls are told to turn in their uni- forms each year. "I don't mind smoking. But there's nothing worse than seeing a girl in uniform smok- ing." Each girl pays a year to join ths band and Mr. Nagel supplies the instruments and uniforms. Sometimes there is a travelling girl paid to help defray the cost of the Mexican tour. Mr. Nagel estimates the Eu- ropean tour will cost for three weeks and the money now is being raised through performances, sub- scription and a raffle. The senior girls band, which consists of 30 drummers, 45 pieces of brass and a 25-girl color guard, had to turn down offers to return to Mexico and the United States' West Coast this summer. They just ha- ven't the time. Meanwhile, future plans In- clude the New York City Drum and Bugle Show, visits to Chicago, New Jersey, Hous- ton, Kansas City and Mexico and possibly Russia in 1973 or 1974.

Groenen Photo Girls spared by kidney tests EDMONTON (CP) About 700 young city girls have been spared the possibility of serious ddney damage, thanks to n recently completed screening program in schools by the Ed- monton branch of the National Sidney Foundation. The girls were among who received their parents' permission to submit urine samples for testing, a founda- ion spokesman said here. "When the federal govern- ment sees our results, I'm sure t will he more than just a little said a kidney specialist who participated in he program. The program began early his year when the girls were ;iven a letter to take home to .heir parents, asking permis- sion to conduct tests because girls are more prone to kidney >roblems than boys. Where positive indications ivere found, second samples were taken as supportive diag- nosis and to ensure no mistakes had been made with the first samples. QUICK......... THRIFT.........

It seems she can't control her mouth. I used to have that problem, until one day 1 sat myselT down and did some tall thinking. Brian decided to go back to school when he got out of the service. Holding down a full-time job and going lo school demands a lot energy. When I looked around and saw the problems our friends wore having with their marriages I thanked God fov this mm. My only compliant was that ho wasn't able lo pay as much attention to me as I wanted. Many nights I wished we could go to a movie or jusl talk, but I knew Brian had to study. I'd get busy with a small project so as not to pester him. Being a good wife means moro than cooking and cleaning and laundry and sex. It means being a friend. And sometimes friendship demands that you leave people alone. My typing isn't great and I see I've made some mistakes but if I take the time to write this over I'll find too many things wrong and tear it up. So please accept it the way it is. Thanks, Ann. DEAR JUNE: The typesetters will take care of the mis- takes, It's the sense of a letter that counts and yours has it. Thanks for writing. What's the story on pel, LSD, cocaine, uppars and down- ers, speed? Can you handle it if you're carclul? Ssnd for Ann Landers' new booklet, "Straight Dope on Drugs."
