Herrmann. They will be ridden by a group of European horse- men, some of whom are mem- bers of the Herrmann family and others who were trained in the Spanish Vienna. Riding School at The program will be highlight- ed by the equestrian ballet ''airs above the seen in the Walt Disney movie, Miracle of the White Stallions. The ballerina horses have been trained to perform vari- ous ballet feats around two carved pillars located almost exactly in the center per- forming area. Although the pil- lars are not actually used in the performance, they symbol- ize tlie "airs above ground" training these horses actually have. Among the featured perform- ers are Harry Herrmann, the only man in the world to put his Lipizzaner mount Into a courbette high enough to clear a two-foot-sbr-inch hurdle. Wolfgang Dellefont, who was second rider to the late actor Robert Taylor in the Disney movie depicting Lipizzaners will also perform. Many of the ballet move- ments will be seen for the first time, such as the triple capri- oles by Furioso Favory, the first horse to perform this feat in more than 200 years. There are today fewer than 500 Lipizzan horses in the en- tire world, and of these, only two are known to be brown. Originally the Lipizzaners were varicolored, ranging from dark gray to light gray; their color was bred out to white over the years. Today a brown Lipizzaner is a highly prized rarity. Colonel Herrmann has one of the brown horses in his collection of Lippizzaners. By LAHKY BENNETT Herald Staff Writer The Lelhbridge subdivision of the RCMP added a new method for the promotion of highway safety and law enforcement May 12 when it started city- based aircraft highway patrol flights. Sergeant Hay Sales, traffic co ordinator for the Let b- bridge subdivision of the RCMP said -the Lethbridge based air- craft patrols represented a new dimension in highway traffic safely. "The highway aircraft pa- trols are not designed to in- crease the arrest rate of traf- fic offenders. The program is intended to make our highways safer places to drive by encour- aging safe driving ho said. "In addition to apprehending speeders, the aircraft patrols can be used to spot drivers who fail to stop at stop signs, who are driving carelessly, who are uttering and even those who are driving erratically and are possibly impaired. "By increasing our surveil- lance we hope to encourage per- sons from driving when they are a menace to themselves as well as others using Ihe high- way." Normal patrolling of southern Alberta highways, the use of radar and the new vascar speed check system will not be effect- ed by the air patrols. The aircraft patrol, based at Kenyon Field, will be used to patrol the highways from the Saskatchewan to B.C. borders and from the United Stales- Canada border as far north as the Nanton Vulcan district, including the Medicine Hat dis- trict. The aircraft patrol program was first initiated in Alberta al Edmonton in later adopted in Calgary and carried out in the Lethbridge district by Cal- gary based planes on a trial basis last summer. The aircraft patrols will be carried out on an irregular ba- New rules for press sis as "the traffic flow war- rants its use." Three Lethbridge RCMP eon- stables have been assigned to the aircraft patrol duty. The aircraft used is a single-en- gine, four place Cessna leased rom Lethbridge Air Service Ltd. at Kcnyon Field. The Lethbridge firm also sup- plies two professional pilots to fly the patrol plane. RCMP Constables Mark Dick- nson, 'Eric Wheeler and Mel Oyson have been assigned to he aircraft patrol duty. Each man underwent a two day classroom training course and 10 hours of flight time training an instructor from Edmon- :on, before starting duty. The aircraft patrol system to check for speeders is simple, accurate and effective. Each aircraft patrolled zone is clearly marked by the words "air patrol" painted on the road, followed by a pair of air- craft silhouettes, another pair of silhouettes and a series of while lines which divide the 1V4 mile zone into six quarter-mile lengths. Signs are also placed at tho road side warning of the ap- proaching zone. Cars travelling in the zone are timed as they travel be- tween the section lines by an airborne constable. The elapsed time for each section is taken by the constable on a special set of two stop-watches. The times are recorded and INSURANCE LIABILITY BONDS AUTO FIRE ROSSITER AGENCIES ITD. ESTABLISHED 1911 Lowir Floor J17 4lh I. 327-1341 checked on a chart which con- verts the elapsed time to miles- per-hour. If the vehicle is found :o be exceeding the speed lim- it, the constable then radios a pursuit car on ground. The pursuit car is generally stationed near the end of a zone. When the radio report is received, the driver, dressed in a specially designed red re- flective vest walks to the road and flags the car to stop. Ideally this system does away with vehicle chases, often at high speeds. If the flagged ve- iicid refuses to stop, however, a chase will result, but the flee- ing vehicle will also be follow- ed from above by the patrol plane offering lltllo chance for evasion or escape.

The new policy, which shifts the responsibility of dealing with the press on matters con- sidered "sensitive" from ad- ministrators of the institutions to the regional directors, is re- ported to have been introduced at the beginning of this year. Under the new policy, the press must, for get permission from the regional director of the department of national health and welfare in Edmonton for permission to tour the Blood Indian Hospital in Cardston. Perviously, the ad- ministrator of the hospital could give the permission. Asked why it has been neces- sary, Dr. 0. J. Rath, the de- partment's regional director for Alberta said it was "a depart- mental policy to ensure respon- sible press coverage."
