Phone 327-1056 JVo major dangers Flood threat situation seems under control Southern Alberta's flood tlireat situation seems under control. Provincial and federal olfi- cials in charge ot monitoring the Oldman River and its tributaries say no threat exists at present. The Oldman River has over- flowed its banks onto flood plains in areas but no threat to populated areas exists. Water overflow into flood plains is usual during periods cf heavy water runoff from the mountains. Although the river is running slightly higher than normal and is filled with debris, no danger exists unless warm temperatures above 8C degrees and warm winds cause heavy melting of sub- stantial amounts of snow which remain packed in the moun- tains. Water level monitoring sta- tions at various points along the river report different water levels. The Lethbridge station, be- tween 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. Fri- day, recorded a 4.8-inch level .ncrease. However, liie water ievui dropped overnight. During the same morning ;ime period yesterday, the Brocket station reported a one- foot water level drop. The water level at Tabcr is reported at (lie full bank stage but, as of yesterday afternoon, not overflowing. Some flooding is reported rn the Fort Macleod area but it has not resulted in damage oth- er than covering some dary roads. In Lethbridge, the Tollestrup Sand and Gravel Co. river, bottom area gravel pit and of- fice are threatened.

And English riding is being enthusiastically received by some Lethbridge people. It is another aspect of riding thai soon may be as popular as the western rodeos so well-known to southern Albertans. Joe Selinger, owner of the St George Riding Stables in Cal- gary, was invited by a 4-K riding club to Lethbridge to give riders knowledge and start in English style riding a' a two-day clinic recently. MOVING? What is English style riding? Fred Hess of Sunnyside, owner f the only Hanovarian stallion n Canada, said "it is a way of bowing off with your mount." The style which originated more than 200 years ago in England displays a conserva- ive type of clothing, consisting sf britches, hard hat, English riding boots and a sports jac- tet. It is a "more formal type" of riding. The rider is mounted upon a flat saddle instead of the west- em saddle. The flat saddle al- .ows more contact between rid- er and horse than the western Because there is not as mucli .eather to feel through. Horses have 60 per cent ol their weight in the front end and 40 per cent in the back end, but the English rider bal- ances the horse with 50 per cent of the weight on each end. To do this, he "talks straight Ihrough the horse's mouth." With one hand on each rein, he tucks the horse's neck in while driving the horse ahead.

STORftGE The rider has full control of lis horse, and makes it do what e wants. And this way, and xicause of English riding icrse's strength, jumping which s absent in western riding, be- comes an elegant piece of showmanship of the English rider. The right slart to English riding and ideas of what to work for is what Mr. Selinger said he attempts to give begin- ners. He said when he first .came to Canada in 1957, there was no English riding at all. And because he had been in- structing riders since 1942, ho established his own stables in 1959. Since then he has had riders come to his Calgary stables from as far away as Montreal and Minnesota to train for periods as long as a couple of weeks. Now, with 55 horses in his stables, all strictly trained for jumping, he teaches riders mainly between 13 and 17 years. He arranges riding shows in Calgary, Edmonton, Red Deer and Regina where his students attend. He proudly stated that Nancy Souther, who won the North American junior jumping for 18 years and under at the Roya Winter Fair two years ago, ani others who won world recogni lion, have trained at his under him.

The first arena for English ding in Calgary was started y Mr. Selinger and now there Contract negotiations b e- ween southern Alberta chool teachers and the South- ern Alberta School Authorities Association broke off in Letli- bridge Friday. The break down resulted irom a wage impasse with tho teachers demanding a 7.3 per cent across the board pay in- crease. The authorities associa- tion placed a 6 per cent limit on wage and benefit increases. Ray Clark, SASAA chairman, said the over all teacher de- mands would result in a 10 per cent cost increase to the tax- payer 4 per cent more than allowed by existing legislative restrictions. Conciliation officer Neal Gra ham will now have to either make recommendations fo both disputing parties to voti upon, or set up a conciliatio: board. Mr. Clark said, "Don't loo for much to be done until afte the summer holidays." Unless Uie conciliation office L remanded re 14 indoor arenas in the ;ty.

Mr. Eelinger has been im- orting the special jumping reed, Hanovarian, from Eur- pe because it has good man- ers and disposition, and is a horse for English riding. Jut he said now that the horse s here, breeding can be done n Canada, and the money can je kept in the country for other nirposes. Mr. Selinger suggested that a riding show may be scheduled his summer with Calgary rid- ers participating. He comment- ed that after it is seen by local jeople here, all of Lethbridge rill be behind the idea of get- ting more English riding. Two Lcthbridge youths who have trained in Calgary will iclp those in the Lethbridge area with riding instruction.

A five-acre subdivision east of Lakemount Blvd. and Spruce Drive will account for 21 lots. The subdivisions will require final approval from the Oldman River Regional Planning Com- mission. At the same time, the MFC refused to recommend subdivi- sion of two other parcels of land. The commission rejected a proposal to divide two large :ots northeast of 18th St end 18th Ave. N. into several smaller parcels to accommo- date semi-detached houses. The lots are large enough on which to build apartment com- plexes. The zoning also allows semi detached residences, pro- viding the lot sizes meet the minimum standards. In this case, the proposed lot sizes were substandard. Also turned down was an ap- plication to subdivide about five acres surrounding the LDS Church on Scenic Drive into two lots.
