Marilyn Axford, a U of L student applied to the federal government program for assistance Reduced bus time starts today Reduced transit service goes into effect in the city today. The last two hours of all runs have been cut off. Starting today, buses on routes 2, 4 and 5 will leave the downtown area at 9:30 p.m. No. 1 win start its final run at 9:20 p.m. No. 3 will leave at 9. Sunday and holiday service will be from 12:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Previous service was from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m The cutback in service could mean a yearly saving to the city of $20,000 to $30,000. Last year's transit department deficit exceeded $95,000. A study last year showed expenses for each route amounted to $45 to $50 and revenue totalled only $7, on the after-10 service. Wrong name in story WLUaird Fletcher Llewellyn, not Leo Llewellyn, was the person shown in a picture on page 16 of the June 4 Herald in story of 50-donation awards for blood donors. The Herald regrets any embarrassment this error may have caused persons concerned, OUR OSCAR to develop a student botanical garden and aboretum, and has been granted $9,300 to do so. The project will involve planting about 50 species of trees and shrubs, both common to and new to the area near the U of West Lethbridge campus. Four students including Miss Axford, her brother Whitey, Trisha Gundlock and Ivano Gir-ardi will work on the project full time, employing other students for shorter, periods as they need more manpower. They plan to start immediately, and have been working already with the university's landscape architect and university officials to determine where the work will be done. We'd like to see a small sort of park area where the students and faculty and other people could go to during their spare time," Miss Axford said. "There'd be no park grass, but there should be a few benches and a lot of different trees and shrubs." It would be a walking, leisure spot primarily, .but would also be available as an outdoor botany laboratory for university classes. The university has agreed to care for the students' work in future years, and it will become the first U of L landscaping to mature. Plants will come from a variety of sources and most are al-ready available. The students will plant a few test shrubs to be certain they will grow, but plan to spend the first few weeks mostly planning exactly where to work and in what patterns. One spot they are looking at contains a small natural lake just above the coulee banks, which they believe they could use as a source for a small stream running through an arboretum. Another area they are discussing now with university officials is the coulee "V" directly below the existing academic building, where it would be visible from the east side of the Okbnan River. "I think the most interesting thing so far has been trying to explain what coulees and chi-nooks and other things we have in southern Alberta were to the Opportunities for Youth people in Ottawa," Miss Axford said. "Try to describe a coulee in terms an easterner could really understand. They were very nice about it all, but I still wonder if they might think we're planting a garden in a desert or something." mm Six months jail for purse stealer SHORTEST TRAIN - Thaf s about the size of it.

PHONE 3274211 327-8321 The Canadian Medic - Alert Foundation, a charitable, nonprofit organization established to protect people with hidden medical problems has received the official endorsement of the Life Underwriters Association of Lethbridge. In announcing the endorsement, Will Charlesworth, association president, said everyone should become familiar with the Medic-Alert "life saving" emblem and should encourage friends and relatives with medical problems to investigate the protection the stainless steel Medic Alert bracelets and necklaces offer. "The easily recognizable Medic - Alert emblems have engraved on the back a warning to physicians of the accident or siezure victims problems," said Mr. Charlesworth. "Diabetics, hemophiliacs, epileptics, persons allergic to drugs or who have a rare blood type, or other problems, all come under the heading of "hidden medical problems'." The Medic-Alert insignia fa known around the world and the medical warnings are universally understood by doctors although engraved in English. The foundation has sister organizations in the United States, New Zealand, Spain, The Netherlands, The Philippines, and Great Britain and The Republic of Ireland, and the emblem is registered in sixteen other countries. Mr. Charlesworth said: "The Medic - Alert Foundation pro- vides medical problem identification emblems, wallet certificates and maintains a central file on its members' medical problems at its Turlock, California headquarters. "The vital information in these files is obtainable at a moment's notice on a 24-hour, collect - call basis by physicians and other authorized personnel in an emergency." A continual year round educational program -is conducted by the Medic - Alert Foundation, directed towards physicians, hospitals, law enforcement agencies, industry and the general public to familiarize all with the meaning of the Medic-Alert emblem and recognition of its warning message. Mr. Charlesworth said it is estimated that one member in every family has a hidden med teal problem and is in need of some identification that wil" give information for proper medical treatment in an emergency. Mr. Charlesworth advised members of the community wishing further information to talk to their life insurance agent or write to the Canadian Medic - Alert Foundation, 174 St. George Street, Toronto 5, Ontario. FIRST SEEN rock group, Tranquility Base. The Royal Winnipeg Ballet toured last year with the Toronto - based Lighthouse. The Winnipeg Symphony transformed its deficit into a profit over the past five years by utilizing the talents of Johnny Cash and Al Capp. The employment by classically - bent groups of "household names" as money - making sources was raised last April at a national meeting of Canadian amateur and professional orchestras. Lethbridge symphony concertmaster Dr. Clifford Palmer was the symphony's representative at the meeting in London, Ont. Winnipeg symphony manager Leonard Stone stunned and shocked members of 30 of Canada's 38 orchestras with his con-tention that classical music groups should hire Mitch Miller, the Galloping Gourmet (Graham Kerr) and Mohammed Ali. Their names draw people who normally never attend symphony projects. Ticket sales allow an orchestra to continue with the serious - music programs it wishes. Dr. Palmer said it would be impossible for Leth b r i d g e to employ such popular stars because of their steep fees. But other symphony members have suggested local groups - the Point of Interest, the Pursuit of Happiness - might be considered for'Special concerts. Perhaps even rock - classical combinations might be tried although Dr. Palmer wondered where the symphony would acquire applicable music arrangements. The symphony's annual meeting, Monday at 8 p.m. at the Bowman Arts Centre, is expected to show a balanced budget for the 1970-71 season, with receipts based on ticket sales, a $2,000 grant from the city and $1,000 from the province. Hence the orchestra is not in the dire financial straits of some symphonies. "We keep a tight rein on expenses," said Nat Olson, past president of the Lethbridge Symphony As sociation. But the association does not have much elbow room in its approximately $7,000 budget. Out - of - town members are not allowed gas money for the eight months of rehearsals and performances. Guest artists last season were paid little, some times a small honorarium, far below what they should command. If one of the grants were dropped, the symphony would be in trouble. If the symphony does try working with non - classical musicians for money - making purposes, and to introduce new patrons to the symphony and give local groups exposure, it will be bucking two things: critics tend to view rock - classical concerts as calamitous; and the Lethbridge orchestra conductor Lucien Needham is "absolutely opposed" to such an idea. Tying popular music in with the symphony would mean the symphony was "peddling artistic dirt." "Johnny Cash doesn't add much to the nobility of the hu- A 45-year-old man of no fixed abode was sentenced to jail for 6 months after he pleaded guilty in Lethbridge magistrate's court Friday to two charges of theft of money under $50. Court was told the man was found inside a local elementary school Friday, when questioned why he was there he ran. The police were called and he was found hiding behind some bushes in the school yard. A search revealed the purses of two teachers had been opened and money had been removed. Cash totalling the same amount taken was found on the man. Judge L. W. Hudson said he was surprized by the boldness of the man's actions. Prior to sentencing a police official asked the maximum sentence be made. Speaking on behalf of the police, Inspector Ralph Michelson, said problems such as this theft and the attack on a 22-year-old woman become far too frequent in the spring. He said the police would treat harshly any further such crimes. Judge Hudson said every spring with the influx of migrant workers he sees too many of these and similar cases. He said the majority of persons who migrate to Southern Alberta come to work, but there are some who follow the workers only so they might have a new place to commit crimes. Judge Hudson concurred with Inspector Michelson's announcement o f a get-tough pol- icy and said the court will alse deal harshly with offenses similar to the one he had just tried.

Make new discoveries. Enjoy new pleasures. These were some of the points of advice on retirement given to 11 city school teachers Friday evening by George Watson, president of the Lethbridge branch of the Retired Teachers' Association. IT'S COMING CAR SHOW WATCH FOR ITI The 11 teachers were honored at the Alberta Teachers' Association's annual spring banquet, as they moved from active teaching into retirement. Many of the careers saluted extended beyond 40 years. Mr. Watson assured the teachers that life after 65 can really be worthwhile, if, "rest is replaced by activity, solitude by solidarity." He urged new pursuits and cited the author Agatha Christie who wrote a book at age 80. "Always be doing something." That's the secret, said Mr. Watson. AIR CONDITIONERS At Wholesale Price*.
