Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 19, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THIIETHBRIDGE HIRAID Thursday, July 19, 1973 Win a lot, lose a few Winning stuffed ani- at the various gome attractions on the midway isn't easy for most fairgoers. Those who try are often frust- rated by milk that refuse to fall over when struck with a ball or by that careen off pop bottle tops in- stead of encircling them. Some, however, seem to have little trouble ac- cumulating their mena- gerie. Herald photo- graphers Rick Ervin and Harry Neufeld scratch their heads in won- der when he saw one young man enjoying the midway games, and winning handily, then later in the day working behind the counter at one of the same games. Could be he believes all work, no play, makes Jack a poor entrepren- eur. lose parents, lads Salvation Army finds the lost A place for comfort and a soft shoulder to cry on has long been one role of the Sal- vation Army, and for lost kids and parents that role is evident at Whoop-Up Days. At the request of the city police, the Lethbridge Salva- tion Army opened a lost and found booth under the seats on the west side of the Ex- hibition Pavilion. The Army organized mem- bers of a ladies' organization Woolies loose coats at Whoop-Up display Shearing sheep is an art that only "abort six men per- form in Alberta on a fulltime basis. Des DebeBe of Cardston and formerly Australia skilled at taming sheep out to pasture in tbeir summer coats. Working for the Southern Alberta Sheep Breeders As- sociation in the agricultural Food For You section at Whoop-Up Days, Des shears several sheep each day. He manages 18 to 29 shears per hour on occasion and so far this year has sheared about 13.000 animals in Al- berta and British Columbia. At the fair, be docs aH the movements deliberately so the public can watch all the movements needed to take the wool off in one piece. "I try to show the public what can be done and Des says of bis role at the fair. "The kids wonder what I do to make the sheep stay still or they ask if it hurts when the wool is cut off." He says the kids really un- derstand when told that the sheep can't go anywhere "if they arc held securely, re- gardless of what position they are put in to expose the wool to the shears. The sheep actually welcome the shearing process because it is like getting a haircut in the summer, he says. DCS added that once the wool is bagged, "it is the last time I see ft until I go down- town to buy a wool shirt" and other church workers on a shift basis to be available to look after lost persons from 1 p.m. to fair closing time. Eleven ladies responded to the call for help in the booth. The room, marked with a small cardboard sign nailed to the door jam. is located near the dry police bead- quarters. It is stocked with suckers, candies, comic books and magazines to help persons being served to pass the time. Tbe booth is sat up to help youngsters like sobbing An- gela, who was brought to the ladies so upset all she could tell them was her first name and thai she was four. With this information and the description of her cloth- ing, police were notified. A plea for the child's parents or guardian was announced on the public address sys- tem. It was about a half hour later that Angela's mother walked into the room, re- lieved to find her daughter. Gladys Woftte of Warner, who found Angela crying in front of a booth on the mid- way, said she took the child to three locations on the hfciijon Grounds before she Lower alcohol content in beer like adding water, says brewer By RICHARD BURKE Herald Staff Writer Beer drinkers who like to cry in their mugs shouldn't mind if the government de- cides to lower the alcoholic content of malted liquor. They're used to their beer being a little flat. Tears in beer, in a high enough quantity, would have about the same effect 'on the taste as if the brewer put four per cent aftrhol in his product instead of five per' cent, as be does now. Such a change would cause no difficulty in, the manu- facturing process, says Al Keyworth of Moteon's Brew- ery in Calgary. But the beer would tend to be a little flat tasting.. To illustrate the affect, Walter Hogg, assistant brewmaster at Sick's Leth- bridge Brewery, emptied about one-fifth of a bottle of beer then topped it off with an equal amount of water. The result: rather watery beer. The change could be that simple, says Mr. Hogg, but it's more likely subtle altera- tions would be made in the formula applied to beer. The process, practically as old as man, is a natural one. Starch, from which sugar is formed, comes from malting barley and rice or corn. (Rice is used at A barley-rice mash is heated to about 156 degrees Fahren- heit, the temperature at found the out-of-the-way Salvation Army booth. Mrs. Wottte, .a mother of two herself, explained that she bad taken Angela with her through the midway hoping the parents would spot her. She did it because it is something she would like someone else to do for her children if they were lost. Another check by The Her- ald later in the afternoon was interrupted by a moth- er, tears in her eyes be- cause her son had been missing for at least an hour. The last visit to the room indicated that, the boy was still missing but amxnmce- inenis were continuing to be made on the public address system. From 1 p.m. to p.m., four children and puieuts were reunited. Kiddies Day and Saturday evenings we the busiest times of the fair week, ac- cording to Major Joan Pierce. Only one lady works in the room daring Mondays but, learning from experience, two ladies are scheduled for tbe rest of the fair. For the work and service provided, the Army gets this year, up from paid is Beer, tickets salesman happy which naturally occurring malt enzymes convert starch to sugar, both fermentable and non-fermentable. Since it is the fermentable sugars which create the al- cohol, when combined with yeast, it's at this stage the formula can be adjusted. By raising the temperature the amount of fermentable sugar can be decreased, and hence the amount of alcohol. The change would mean about a 20 per cent reduc- tion in the amount of mate- rials breweries would need but it would not result in any cost saving, Mr. Key- worth said. To make 20 per cent less alcohol, the brewer needs 20 per cent less mate- rial. The federal government would have to cut back on excise taxes charged against the breweries for there to be any saving to the producer or the consumer, be said. The provincial government committee which recom- mended the alcohol level be lowered suggested beer is Beer garden sales are up over last year and the JC's ticket sales on the gold brick are heading for an all-time high, officials for the two concessions reported Wednesday. Although not averaging as many cases per day, the beer garden has sold about 100 dozen more bottles this year than in the first two days last year, Manager Gary Shilliday said. If the weather continues to State secretary to visit Secretary of State Hugh Faulkner will visit south- western Alberta August 7 to 9- During his three-day visit the federal cabinet minister will inspect Opportunities For Youth projects here. He will spend August 7 in Waterton, and August 8 on the Blood and Peigan Re- serves. A "non political break- fast" with the local OFY ad- visory committee is planned for the minister in Leth- bridge August 9, says Sven Ericksen, president of the Lethbridge Liberal assitia- tion. Mr. Faulkner will be ac- companied by Doug Bruchet, OFY regional director for the Prairies and NWT and Doug Bowie, an executive assistant. Mr. Bruchet is a former Lethbridge resident who lives in Winnipeg. Mr. Bowie has lived in Warner and Lethbridge. As Secretary of State, Mr. Faulkner is in charge of the CBC, the Canada Council, na- tional museums, and citizen- ship. His portfolio includes the government's official languages program. be warm the garden is ex- pected to surpass last years total sales. It rained on the first two days in 1972 which hurt the open air pub, he added. .The size of the garden has been increased this year but has yet to see capacity crowds. The rodeo, Thursday, Fri- day and Saturday, should bring many people into the garden and help to exceed last year's 500 dozen a day sales average. Other improvements have been the addition of colored lights and repairs to the roof. Entertainment, as in pre- vious years, is supplied by local groups, Mr. Shilliday said. Over exhuberant cus- tomers have not caused any difficulties at the pub. "We have no problems whatsoever
