The hits are made with long bamhoo staves. Loud grunls and shouts are part of the lighting. "The shouts and screams can't be translated into any English words, they are just sounds uttered to unify the body and put spirit into the said Mr. Yamamoto. Kendo is comprised of 10 grades. The Japanese visitors said most of the university stu- dents taking it only get as far as the third or fourth grade. Anyone who Is past the fifth grade is considered a champ- ion, and is qualified to teach or instruct Kendo. "This sport is very strenuous and tiring.

Shopping carts dangerous for would-be wiiidmobilers Shopping cart sailing may be a pastime for some youtlis, but city police think it is hazardous to their health. "Some of the city's youths may be doing this shopping cart sailing, but I am sure they don't realize the dangers it could create, said city police inspector Max Coupland. "Two youths in a shopping cart present an unstable, un- controllable manaee to both the passengers in the cart and the public." Inspector Coupland pointed out the carts have n high cen- tre of gravity and arc easily tipped, they have no steering mechanism and their travel is totally uprediotable, they have no brakes and are hard to stop, unless (hey tip over. If the carts are "sailed" on the sidewalk, a pedestrian could be hurt it would he al- most impossible for the youth- ful sailers lo steer their vchi- icle. Because the carls nre liard to steer and stop, they could unprediclably dart out Into a street, directly info the path of an unsuspecting approaching motorist. A sudden gust of wind, n crack n the pivcmcnt or momentary loss of balance could cruise (lie flimsy cnrt to overturn, result- ing In serious injuries lo the riders, Cart sailing may look like a new "fun but the enter- tainment value should be far outweighed by the danger in- vovled.

Public housing survey sought by city aldermen By GREG McINTYHE Herald Staff Writer A city committee hopes the Alberta Housing Corporation can complete a survey by Au- gust showing the need for public housing in Lethbridge. Aid. Chick Chichester, a member of the committee, will ask city council Monday to re- quest the housing corporation to do the study. Construction of public hous- ing in the city, perhaps in 1973, would be based on need deter- mined by the survey. Money could come from three levels of government. A formu- la that has been used is 75 per cent federal, 15 per cent provincial and 10 per cent mu- nicipal. Aid. Chichesler was optimis- tic that money will be avail- able following a meeting in Lethbridge with Bob Orysiuk, director of the Alberta Hous- ing Corp. He reported to the commit tee that cost-sharing arrange- ments between the levels of government and the kind of housing to build will be decided after the survey. Public housing is built by government and rented at sub- sidized rales to low-income leu- ants. Rent is likely to depend on a sliding scale according to income and need, usually based on number of dependent. The need for subsidized hous- ing here was brought to the at- tention of the city by a num- ber of groups concerned about senior citizen accommodation. Don LeBaron, a member of Large library The Canada department of agriculture library, the main agricultural library in Canada, has 350.000 volumes covering the biological sciences, agri- cultural economics, agricul- tural eugincering and manage- ment science. It's 21 branch or field libraries across Canada average to vol- umes each. the public housing committee and manager of homes for the elderly, estimated that there are 200 senior citizens in the city currently in need of sub- sidized accommodation. The committee favored pub- lic housing that would accom- modate people of various ages, rather than strictly senior citi- zen housing, because senior government is prepared to con- tribute more toward public housing. Because many senior citizens are in the low-income category, they will likely occupy a large portion of the facility. In 1967 AHC surveyed the need for public housing in Leth- bridge. Following the study, the provincial and federal govern- ments gave approval for the construction of 40 suites. Cily council at that time, how- ever, took the money rough- ly ?1 million and used it to ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC Schwarti Bldg. 222 5lh SI. S.
