Prize-wm- The way had been cleared by city council at its June 28 meet- ing for final approval of the site, adjacent to the Golden Acres Home and immediately behind the Auxiliary Hospital which is now under1 construc- tion.

STUDIO ON FIFTH AVENUE ARTISTIC i PICTURE ARTISTS' SUPPLIES OUT 1 CAuenv 710-5 AVE S ItETHBRIDCE-AlTA Albert Liebelt, 24, of Warner was remanded on prop- erty bail for another week to await tlie decesion of L. W. Hud- son. He appeared in mag- istrate's court Tuesday. Liebelt was charged initially with arson following the April 27 fire at 519 Zth St. S. The arson charge was later changed to the lesser charge of wilfully setting fire to private roperty. The charge of arson carries a maximum sentence of life im- risonment, but the lesser harge of wilfully setting fire o private property carries a maximum of five years. The trial June 17 was ad- ourncd following the unexpect- ed .testimony of a local psy- :hiatrist. Dr. Scott Angus told the court Liebelt may have been in an emotional state called a fugue. While in a fugue a person unctions as an automaton and s not aware of the implications of his acts. Court was told Liebelt had been involved in a complicated and confused inter-relationship with a woman he believed to be his wife, and her brother, anc the resulting emotions coulc have produced the fugue state. The crown asked for the ad- journment so it might have time to prepare a rebuttal and to consider the acceptability o the psychiatrist's testimony be- cause he had been allowed to remain in court to hear all evi dence, while all of the other witnesses had been excluded. Judge Hudson again delays his decision. He said he had no yet received some relevant le- gal texts to help him deter mine the question of the ac ceptability of the psychiatrist' testimony. Cases involving the testimony of a psychiatrist in the past all differ because the psychiatrist I had always been a crown, and not a defense witness. Scouter takes course Streets closed for repairs Frank Tinordi of Lethbridge, treasurer of the Southern Al- wrta region Boy Scouts of Can- ada, recently attended a Hu- man Relations Laboratory at Carleton University, Ottawa. The week long training ses- sion, which attracted members of the scouting movement across Canada, was designed to get the various groups to work closer together from the re- gional level to interpersonal re- lations. Professional people including ministers, mining engineers, teachers and oilmen, all in- volved in scouting, discussed such topics as understanding personal needs and behavior, becoming more open and ac- cepting relations with others, and developing new skills to make and improve scouting groups. Mr. Tinordi's personal evalu- ation termed the project a suc- cess in its approach to the per- sonal growth of the delegates.
