A Canadian Press survey, from 6 p.m. local time Fri- day night to midnight Sun- day night, showed 12 people died in Alberta, 11 of them in traffic plus one man hit by a train, four died in traffic in Manitoba and one died in traffic in Saskatchewan. John Gerling, 45, his wife Margaret, 41, and their daughters Karen, 21, Carol, 19 and Brenda, 14, all of Lloydminister, Alta., died in Past year free of traffic deaths Lethbridge motorists have recorded the first fatality-free 13-month period in five years. The last traffic fatality in the city occurred July 21, 1972. Insp. Bill West, in charge Minor complaints at fair It was a relatively quiet week for policemen stationed at the fairgrounds during Whoop-Up Days. Their office in .the Pavilion received 131 complaints over the six day period, 37, of which dealt with either lost children or parents. Complaints of improperly parked cars were also in- cluded, in the tally, Insp. Bill West, in charge 'of the detachment at the fair, said today that at the be- ginning of exhibition week, "people were well manner- ed and things were very quiet." But as the week pro- gressed, activity gathered momentum, and Friday night was a busy one for the 10 policeman on the grounds, handling disturbances and drunk- complaints. of the traffic division of the Lethbridge City Police said today he is hoping ths city can go for another 12 months without a traffic death, "but I'm not sure we'll be that fortunate." He attributed the record to steady police enforcement and the force's policy of is- suing 24-hour suspensions of drivers' licences. To record another fatality- free 12 months, Insp. West said the force must have the co-operation of citizens of Lethbridge and surrounding districts and asked drivers to use caution and common sense when driving in the city. However, the fatality pic- ture outside the city is not as encouraging. In the last five months of 1972, 18 persons died on high- ways in Southern Alberta.
