Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 21, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIBSI HERALD Wednesday, July 21, "71 Forces in north is theme of film A Canadian Armed Forces film presentation at Whoop-Up Days asks the question, "How docs one go lo the bathroom in the The succinct answer "very quickly." Despite Uias one lapse into levity, the 10-minute show pre- sents a serious look at the Conservatives to nominate on July 28 The provincial Progressive Conservatives will hold their nomination meeting for the Lethbridge West riding at B p.m. Wednesday, July 28 in the German Canadian club head- quarters. The meeting was orginally scheduled for autumn, but the Conservatives moved the date ahead in order to be ready for an expected announcement this week of an Aug. 30 election. Peter Lougheed, party lead- er, is slated to speak at the nomination meeting. The only announced candidate for the nomination is Dick Gray, 51, owner manager of Valley Feeders Ltd. The meeting is expected to be the final nomination set for the two Lethbridge ridings. The Social Credit and New Demo- cratic parties have elected can- didates for both; the Conserva- tives, for one. The Liberals have shown no indication of fielding candidates in the city. Non-credit programs this fall The University of Lethbridge will begin offering a unique non- credit educational program this fall, catering to people who want to further their educations but do not want to persuc univer- sity degrees. The seminars, lectures, study sessions and courses will be part of a program called "Pub- lic and is financed through grants from the Alber- ta universities commission. All of the program's activities will include a minimal registra- tion fee, and details as to speci- fic offerings will be provided in August. armed forces' activities in the Canadian north. Using a projector that com- bines three images on a split screen, the film traces the his- tory of Canada's involvement in Arctic research. The trailer unit that houses the show was here last year with basically the same show. But this year the six slide pro- jectors have been replaced by the single projector, which can utilize movie as well as still shots. Crowds for the show have been good. In the first five hours of operation on opening day 595 people went through the trailer doors. Seating is pro- vided for 10-45 people, depend- ing on how many small kids are in the audicnce. The Lethbridge stop is one of many for the trailer, one of two now touring the country. LCC tuition certificate drawn for Wayne Anderson, 1511 5th Ave. N. is the first of six daily winners of 530 Lethbridge Com- munity College tuition certifi- cates from the LCC Whoop-Up Days booth. The college booth is in the Youth-a-rair.a building, and is also the site of Aardvark, which sells a variety of hand- made candles, woven clothing and accessories, pottery and other goods. Everyone male, female, young, old or otherwise is invited by the college to drop an entry into the LCC Aard- vark barrel. A winning name will be drawn each evening at about with each winner receiv- ing the tuition certificates. The certificates will be ten- able in all LCC programs in- cluding the adult education, evening credit and non-credit general interest courses. Dramatic arts courses set The University of Lethbridge will introduce the first courses offered by its new department of dramatic arts this fall. Chairman of the department, and at present its only profes- sor, is David G. Spinks. The depart m e n t' s develop- ment continues the U of L's con- centration on offering as many alternate programs in the fine arts as it can afford. New department at U of L The University of Lethbridge has announced establishment of a new arts and science depart- ment, resulting from the split- ting of the dual sociology-an- thropology department of past years. The sociology anthropology ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC Certified Dental Michanic Metropolitan Bldg. 328-409! department has continuously had the largest student enrol- ment of any U of L program area, reflecting the common in- terest among today's students in the humanities and social sciences. In order to better organize courses in the two disciplines, (he dual department changes this fall to a department of an- thropology, under chairmanship of Dr. David Bettison, and a department of sociology, under chairmanship of Dr. Bob Dwyer who was chairman of the old department. Last of four on racing TWO GUYS, ONE FISH The fish is a beauly 454 pounds and 19 inches long. The problem is that both Craig Murray (lefi) and Roy Duval appear lo have an equal claim to ownership. The way the story came out, the fish was on Roy's hook, but the boys' fishing lines became entangled and Craig pulled it in. Perhaps the answer is to Iry Ihe old King Solomon trick and split the fish down the middle. First bet? Here's how For tlie novice at the race track, selecting a horse and placing a bet for Uie first time can be an unsettling experi- nce. But there are a number of tips to help you make your choice. The first thing you need is a program, the official program of the track, not a list of en- tries printed in the daily news- paper. The program will list the horses, the type of race In which the horses will run, the owners, jockeys and the num- ber the horse will wear in the race. At the bottom of the program page is Lhe handicapper's sel- ections the horse he thinks will win. This is only a guide to the racing fan; the handi- capper is just making an edu- cated guess. Other guides to selection in- clude the newspaper predic- tions and the racing form. Once the actual betting starts on the race, you can get an- other tip from the odds board in the infield, which shows how (lie public is betting on the horses to win. When It is time to place your bet on the horse you have i chosen, go lo the seller's win- dow to buy your ticket. Over each seller's window is asing telling you the pi'ice and lypo of ticket (win, place or show) he is selling. Thus, i fyou want to bet to win on the number 4 horse, you go to the win window, put your money in the counter, and say "Number The sell- er will take your money and punch out a ticket for you. Your bet, no matter how small, affects the odds on the horse. Standoff okayed as school site Final approval of Standoff as the location tor a new, six. room school on the Blood In- dian Reserve has been granted by the department of Indian affairs in Ottawa. George Cromb, national di- rector of Indian education re- vealed the move in a letter to Tom Turner, Blood Peigan district superintendent. Mr. Turner said this morn- ing architects will begin signing the school with construction slated to start as soon as possible. Progress on the school has Lecture series to continue The University of Lethbridge summer lecture series con- tinues next week, with the third in a series of six special ad- dresses. Dr. Brian Staples, co ordin- ator of adult education for the Alberta department of educa- tion will speak Wednesday on the topic, The Teacher: profes- sional or serf. The lecture series is held each Wednesday at p.m. in the U of L Kate Andrews Building lecture theatre, and is open to the public.

Thalidomide display stays open By BEVERLY-ANN CARLSON Staff Wrilcr The lhalidomidc display on the midway of Thomas Shows Inc. now at the Whoop-Up Days will not be closed unless further conflicts arise, according to Andy Andrews, manager' of the Lethbridge and District Exhibition. After much heated discussion on a radio phone-in show Tues- day morning, Andy Andrews, Chief James Carpenter of the Lethbridge city police, and oth- er members of the fair board viewed the exhibit to see if it was, indeed, "repulsive" as it had been termed. It was agreed by all mem- bers of the contingent visi'.ing the show, that the show in itself contained nothing which could be termed and should be allowed to remain open until such time as dam- aging trouble did erupt. The booth itself contains rep- licas of human fetus preserved in laboratory jars.

Mr. Reid, a resident of Flori- da, said he is a former user of "everything from heroin to grass."

Although precautions will be taken lo avoid trouble with the exhibit, no further action against the show is expected.

"The hand is in Canada only to promote understanding and Mr. Stein said. A letter in Tuesday's Herald stated the band was playing an anti-French song which was popular in Germany during the Nazi era. Mr. -Stein said the song was an old German miner's song popular long before the Nazi era, which was later adopted by Hitler for political reasons. The old title and words, not those used by Hitler, are those cunently used. He noted the band has made numerous trips to France, where the song in question has been played, and no objections have been raised there. The average age of the band members is 20 years, Mr. Stein said, and many of them did not even know the song was popu- lar during the Nazi era. "They are not here for political he said.
