Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 22, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta More city news Thurtdoy, July 22, 1971 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAtD 13 'More right than girlie show1 June hotter than average Churches 'should be at fair' in south Although June undoubtedly seemed like a very cool monlh o most Lethbridge it wasn't. Meteorological statistics re- eased by the weather office for ast month show average tem- >eratures were slightly higher han the long-term averages. The mean temperature for the whole month was 59.1 degrees compared to the normal 58.5 degrees. June 22 recorded the highest jemperalure for the month with 89 degrees while the fowest was 37 degrees, recorded on the 28th. The lowest daily maximum temperature was 57 degrees, recorded on the 6th of the month. The highest temperature fiver recorded at Lethbridge in June was 101.1 in 1941 while the lowest was 28.3 in 1912. MIDWAY CIRCUS A new feature of this year's midway is the Rick-Mark miniature circus zoo. Housed in a plastic shell inflated by air pressure, the zoo con- tains a variety of smaller animals. Most of them have the run of the zoo and children, can play with them and pet them. Two turtles, two Chinese chickens and a rabbit share a pen and the parrots are caged, but the miniature horse (full-grown and only three feet the goats and the llama run loose. Enlarged kiddie-land at fair The youngsters who turned out for Tuesday's Children's Day at the Whoop-Up Days mid- way had a new and enlarged kiddie-land at their disposal. While the featured new ride on the midway the Zipper is definitely for an older and emotionally mature clientele, the youngsters have a -good choice of rides designed just for them. Kiddie-land this year is being operated by a new manager, and it's billed as the world's largest travelling midway for children. In addition to the rides, it has the Rick-Mark zoo, in which the kids can go right in and pet (lie animals. Several more travel with the show, but are not being displayed because of a lack of cages. Three monkeys belong to this group. There is also a newly- acquired crow who may go on display when his feathers grow back. "They were ripped out by one of the monkeys. The midway has about 40 rides in all, from the carousel to the Zipper. This new addition is for those with strong stom- achs. If you enjoy whirling in several directions at once while trapped in a steel cage, the Zip- per is for you. Moving all this equipment is a major undertaking, involving upwards of 400 people and 200 vehicles of various sizes and shapes, including seven new deisel tractor units brought in just before the show's Canadian tour started. Thomas Shows will visit 16 cities this year between late April and the end of Septem- ber. Bill Morton, who handles public relations for the show, says that as the show has grown over the years it has become more difficult to book it into smaller centres. He recalls hitting 60 towns a summer not too many years ago. But even with the reduced number of towns, there are still few lay-offs. It's "action every day" for the midway, he said. In addition to the inevitable problems that are bound to hap- pen in moving a small city ev ery few days, Mr. Morton said there have been some problems introducing a new method of selling tickets for the rides. The public has been slow to accept the discount coupon books which, he said, are more effi- cient for both the staff and the customer and which do give the customer a "genuine discount.' I If there had been no time left on the meter would a commissionaire ticket a boat for being overparked on a city street, and if he did where would he put the ticket or is the whole idea of boat parking covered under any obscure city by-taw and if it is would it hold water? KIDDIES DAY FRIDAY FREE ADMISSION FOR CHILDREN UNDER 14 UNTIL 5 P.M All ridos reduced in price by one coupon! I SAVE MONEY I BUY DISCOUNT COUPON BOOKS ON THE MIDWAY SHOWS Is this original cut? i's will now be avail- able for the Lethbtidge poodle community. The Municipal Planning Commission Wednesday ap- j proved a home occupation application by the Lethbridge I Pooch and Poodle Parlor at I 1825 12th Ave. N. for hnthing, 1 clipping and grooming of j poodles. i Kalhy Logan, who made (he application, told the MFC she can handle only two poodles each day, because each one requires three hours to complete. After she had left, a city hall employee quipped: "I should have asked her how much she charges, so 1 could send my kids over." Nine months for break-in An Edmonton man was sen- tenced to nine months in jail after he pleaded guilty in Leth- bridge magistrate's court to breaking into a local shoe store. Court was told Robert Duro- cher, 33, was arrested by city police constable walking his beat near the Deluxe Shoe Store, in the 400 block of 5th St. S., Monday morning. A Lethbridge minister preaching the gospel nightly in a tent at Whoop-Up Days con- tends all churches should be represented at the six-day ex- hibition. Rev. Ed Wiebe, 29-year-old evangelist who schedules reli- gious meetings at to 11 p.m. in a tent near the Youth- a-rama Building, said formats dedicated to religion "have more right here than the girlie show." :'Christ went everywhere preaching. He was accused of eating and drinking with pub- licans and sinners. I believe the church should go where the people are." A graduate from Northwest Bible College in Edmonton in 1963, Mr. Wiebe was later or- dained by the Pentecostal As- semblies of Canada and held pastorates for the church in Al- berta and British Columbia. He wen1, into business for about five years for financial reasons, then returned to preaching. Last April he began regular meetings in the former Hope Reformed Church on 6th Ave. S., now the Living Word Evangelistic Centre. The cen- tre is non-aligned and inter- denominational. The exhibition services fea- ture local and out-of-town groups singing in and outside the tent and giving testimonies, showing of religious movies and messages by Mr. Wiebe. The special guests Saturday will be a group of Jesus People from California, who will be present in the tent all day. Wiebe said ministers "won't get people inside church walls very easily today, unless the spirit of God moves in a big way." He said he would like to do street corner preaching, but "I'm not sure if the city fath- ers could allow me." He suggested it is difficult to lay the blame for diminishing interest in formal religion on the church or the people. "A lot of people feel con- demned. The idea of a gospel program may sicken them, convict them. "But I believe the gospel is meant for all kinds of people. We represent the greatest be- ing, God." ON DEAN'S LIST Angus Brown, son of Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Brown of 318 26th ,S't. S. has been named to the Dean's List at West Virginia University. Mr. Brown is in the department of business and eco- nomics at WVU.
