Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 18, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, July Tl, 1970 If You Ask Me by RIC SWIHART nro PICK UP a hitch-hiker or not to pick up a bitch-hiker That is the question! The rape of a hitch-hiker in south Alberta last the bmtal murder and decapitation of a car driver by hitch- hikers in Montana last week is enough reason for me not to stop for anyone on the road who is not obviously having car trouble. The Alberta Highway Act doesn't spell out any rigid rules about hitch-hiking but it states that when there is no sidewalk, and at all times when possible, a person walking on any highway should walk on the shoulder on the left side of the road facing all on-coming traffic. Although not always the rule, the foregone conclusion of the majority of North American people, is that long hair, hippies, the increase of venereal disease and drugs are synonymous. Whenever I pass any of these "types" they look at me as though I owed it to them to stop and drive them to their destination. This utter contempt turns me on about the same as winning a date with Hildegard Hamhocker. How many times have drivers passed bitch-hikers with the thought in their minds "What if a tire blows out or I otherwise lose control of the car and kill someone crowd- ing along the edge of the highway? I have, and it is not a thought that I would like to live with for the rest of my life. I wouldn't have these thoughts if there weren't so many hitch-hikers on the highways. Educators and government bodies seem to be going out of their way to provide facilities for the 'almighty transient youth.1 When I was in high school and going to university I didn't have time to transient about the country cluttering up the highways and the parks. Maybe the youth of today is special but the old cliche about buying your own education and appreciating it more applied to me. Where do the hordes of transient youth find the money to gallivant about the country and: go to univer- sity? The Criminal Code of Canada spells out all the laws concerning drugs. If a hitch-hiker passenger in your car hides some drugs in the car, for example, you might find your- self in court trying to explain the drugs do not belong to you. The key phrase is "depending upon the circumstances" whether or not the driver of a car can be implicated with a hitch-hiker when drugs are found in your car. To me, this is like playing Russian Roulette. It is up to the courts to decide but still it is like playing with dynamite. I had a chance to find out fist hand from a person who had given rides to hitch-hikers for years. I ran out of gas about two miles from a gas station and was walking for help when a fellow just stopped for me. He told me he wouldn't have stopped If he had not seen my car because he had received nothing but "abuse, foul language and contempt" from the last three or four people be had given rides to. I believe him. I lean toward the United States' thought on this subject for many reasons, both personal and statistically. There are few states where hitch-hiking is legal. It will be a great day in Canada when the government rules out hitch-hiking. This may be a swing at some real good people who have gotten away with giving rides and to accepting rides, but with no hitch-hiking allowed, there can be no danger to these people.

The main problem in present- ing a suitable float is financial Mr. Smith said, and the outlay for one that would stand up to B succession of parades in Al- berta and other areas would cost roughly "We would want a float that would depict progress in Leth- bridge and you can't do that on the Mr. Smith said. "We would need a sizeabte float to do justice to the growth of our city. And any reflection of the development, of Leth- bridge is an advantage to all of southern Alberta." Mr. Smith indicated that It is likely various businessmen would be interested in helping support a major float for the parades next year.
