MOVING? OWEN AGENTS FOR ALLIED VAN LINES council before it is made pub- lic. Some aldermen have com- plained in recent months about projects being made public through the press be- fore they see them. Aid Vera Ferguson's flare-up at coun- cil Tuesday over the release of the airport study was the such case. Height of the proposed apartment has caused some controversy. Originally planned to be five storeys, later reports indicated it could go as high as 10-12 storeys, drawing protest from some senior citizens who feel a Mghrise would not be suitable for people of their age.

Cooling off while cutting figures Local rider wins event Games legal, but not easy Skating a summer pastime Skating may be well known as a winter pastime but some 65 to 70 Lethbridge skaters are finding it, an enjoyable .way to spend a hot Monday or Wednesday night The Henderson Ice Centre, used six days a week by the figure skating and hockey schools, is getting a great deal of use from public skat- ing and casual bookings, Bffl McDonnell of the city recrea- tion department says. Ice time is available for public skating from pjn. to 10 p.m. Mondays and Wed- nesdays.

ASTRO REALTY LTD. rir'ny BERGMAN'S FLOOR COVERINGS Cuitotn Ph. 3210372 2716 12 Ave. S. By WARREN CARAGATA Herald Staff Writer The exhibition is a ber's delight with a little for everyone ami a lot for the people running the games. Watting the midway with a Ml wallet is like sailing off between the mythological Scylla and Charybdis, with hungry baiters from both sides calling you in to win, but most often, to lose. All the games are checked by city police and mis year have been given a clean bin of health, but the fact mat game is legal doesn't mean It's easy to win. "As long as there's a suck- er's chance of a game is legal, one police of- ficer said. Die gaming concessions ere not owned by Thomas Shows but the operators rent space from the midway at a flat rate and the show does take some respoaabtttty for ensuring fee legality of the booths. Bernie Thomas, owner of the midway, claimed the prizes offered in the gamb- ling joints range in price from 25 cents to But Mr. Thomas doesnt call the concessions gambling joints, he genteely refers to them as "merchandise games" or "games of skffl." Tbe type of show on the midway strip varies but most are variations on seemingly common skills, like throwing a basketball through a hoop or shooting a red star out of a target with a machine gun that fires BBs. In the basketball game, the ban is made of robber and the hoops are smaller but if you can overcome these diffi- culties, you too can take a lovely, adorable, cuddly stuff- ed dog to impress your girl friend or your children. Diane Shaw, 19, wasn't im- pressed. She spent throw- ing a ball hi a basket and came away with a big, stag- ed, yellowjdog. It was filthy, the styrofoam stuffing trickling out through rips in the material She complained, but with- out success. In fact, the con- cession operator and the mid- way manager for Thomas Shows seemed definitely on- impressed. As P. T. Barman said, "a sucker is born every so why worry if a customer isn't happy. Irving Zaitsbik is UK mid- way manager and Miami, where he fives in the off-sea- son, is a long way from Lett- bridge, so why be care if the concessions take their money and run back across the border? "If people didn't come here and gamble, ve'd ga some other he said. And when asked if it wasn't true that people in this city helped pay his salary, Mr. Zaitshik replied, "You're too stupid to be a reporter" and walked away. But regardless of the atti- tudes of the people running the show, or the qualify and value of their prizes, or the chances of winning, people wffl still place their money on the tables. Dr. Lawrence Kottas, a lo- cal psychiatrist, says it's be- cause people are punishing themselves for guilt feelings, or because, whan they win, despite the odds, it makes them feel the system is on their side. For others, he says, it's the excitement and suspense of not knowing the outcome of the games. "Gambling can become a compulsive thing and is mix- ed up with, alcohol and offier things people do to male themselves feel good." Even if you do happen to win, you still lose, because the people who are runaigg the shows aretft in Leffi- bridge as a chanty. Some concession operators can make as much as in six months, Mr. Thomas said. He says people gambte be- cause it's in their blood. "It's born in us to gamble why Fm in business." Wendy Nugent of Leth- bridge, a perennial winner on the hone show circuit in Southern Afterta, won the basic seat equitation at the recent Lethbridge Exhibition Light Bone Show. This class, open to riders 14 to 18 years of age, is judg- ed on rider ability. Professor to 'study whales A University of Lethbridge psychology professor is among a group of stud- ents and scientists who will study the behavior of (he be- luga whale at Fort Owrchul this August. Dr. L Q. Wishaw will par- ticipate in Project Jonah, sponsored by the Manitoba government The project, which wffl test two weeks, Drizzle Project running uttfe help out of customers wffl deal with the ecology and Me style of the small wMto whale. During the study research- ers will live on an island next to a large whale community and attempt to observe the whale's normal behavior and record (he manner in which tu6 Because of Dr. Wishaw's background in behavioral sci- ence, be was invited to par- ticipate in the program as a resource person. Dr. Wishaw says the Manitoba govem- ment interested in protect- ing the whale, rather then it bunted to the point of An Opportunities for Youth project designed to help sen- ior citizens with home main- tenance is slowly running out of customers, an official with the project says. Brian Trenhobn said the 14- week project is looking for a wider range of jobs to do. So far the project has helped numerous pensioners and sen- ior citizens with home repairs and jobs including garden- ing, painting, carpentry and cleaning. However, the project has seen a "slowing down" in the number of people who need jobs done, Mr. Trenbotm said. Tbe project, which has been operating for seven weeks, supplies manpower for jobs with the owner left to supply materials. The group will try to obtain some tools if the homeowner cannot, he added. Nine students from the uni- versity and high school are working on the proj- ect The money is to pay for salaries and tool rentals. A similar project ran last year in Letbbridge but the workers are all new, Mr. Trenbolm stated. Tbe project is again operat- ing from the Golden Mile Sen- ior Citizen Centre where Dor- othy Anderson handles the listing of JOBS. "People that are not wealthy but own their own homes and can't do much work themselves should be efcte to keep and maintain Mr. Trenbolm said in justifying the proj- ect The project has not bad any problem with doing jobs for people who could do them by themselves. "Most even help with what we are be Tbe government keeps a check on the project through area supervisors. Tbe senior citizens project, though, has received only one complaint someone didnt like the length of one of the workers hair.
