Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 24, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, Juno 24, 1972 THE lETHBRIDRt HERALD 19 When the wind the air sometimes thickens Chick Macintosh and 1936 friend LCFs reunion starts next week BERNICE HF.RLK HcrnM Staff Writer A total of 229 registrations have been received as of today for Ihe LCI reunion July 1, 2 and 3 says Chick Macintosh, accommodations and regislra- lion chairman for the reunion. Mr. Macintosh said Ihe idea for Ihe reunion was initialed by four former LCI students who are now living in Vancou- ver. He said Ihe reunion began with the idea of having a home- coming for all those who had graduated from LCI in 1932. The theme then would be "40 years ago" 1932 to 1972. The committee later decided to enlarge the reunion to in- clude students from Grades 9 to 12 and increased the year span from 1930 to 1935, as high school friends are not usually limited just to a certain grade. "It is important for people to note that the reunion is not just for students who graduat- ed from LCI during this period of time. It U for all students who were attending high school Mr. Macintosh said. The committee had to set definite dates for the reunion, between 1930 and 1935, or they would have had "millions of people coming." To locate the names of peo- ple to send the invitations to, Ihe committee borrowed old high school yearbooks and rec- ords. had trouble locating some of the girls, because we didn't know their married Mr. Macintosh said. "The difficulties that arose with the pictures were so num- erous that we finally decided to have mug shots taken at the reunion. People were send- ing in everything from family pictures to far distant shots of themselves in unappropriate backgrounds." Five dollars out of the reg- istration fee will be used for the pictures. A book will be mailed to the people who fit in the LCI reunion bracket even if they can't attend the function. By CATHIE RET! Herald Staff Writer Is it manure? Is it blood and dead carcasses? Is it burning odors? Or is it a combination of smells from packing and proc- essing plants, canneries and tanneries that occasionally drift over the city when the wind is blowing in the wrong direction? Which industries create the odor that so often pierce the nostrils of those who are in the location towards which the bad air is blowing has not. been thoroughly determined. Of course no one industry wants lo claim the title of being top smell maker. But there are many industries in the city, and any one could possi- bly, perhaps innocently, be a fEctor to the existing problem. Section 14-5-1 o( the Provin- cial Board of Health Regula- tions, Division 14, says odorous materials must not be released or be permitted to escape into the atmosphere at such a rate ES to interfere with the use and enjoyment of property 01 to en- danger the health or safely of the public. But no one at city hall nor at several departments of the government of Alberta in Leth- bridge would say much about odor problem, let alone Iry to pinpoint one particular dustry causing the problem. However, several industries were given as possible causes of the existing problem. Some industries in northeasl Press council won't consider LCC board meet closure Receive degrees Mart Kenney here At the graduation exercise at Royal Military College Kingsion, Ont. B.A. degree and commissions as lieutenant in the Canadian Armed Force were awarded to Terrene Lloyd Hunt and Larry Thorn a Hunt, both of Lethbridge. Larry, son of Mr. and Mr Vern Hunt and Terry, son Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Hunt, bo' received primary schooling Lethbridge, and both graduate from the Royal Roads Militar College, Vicloria, B.C. Although they attended HM together, they are not Both men have completes Ihcir primary training as j pilots and will continue furfhe training at Moose Jaw, Sask and Cold Lake. In reference to the dance which will feature Mart Ken- ney and Ills Western Gentle- men, Mr. Macintosh recalled that Mart Kenney had been a well-known name in the era of the 30s. Mart Kenney came from Toronto in 1930 to play at Waterloo for a 10 cent dance. A famous song played by this group, which the people who were young In the 1930s might remember, was The West, a Nest and You Dear. The band was also quite popu- lar on radio then. "The band's name means so much to this group of Mr. Macintosh said. He said the band that is coming lor the reunion has 10 members but likely only Mr. Kenney, h i s wife and a few others will be originals. Mr. Macintosh said the band and the banquet are rather ex- pensive and elaborate, but "we want to give the people who are coming lo the reunion the best. Maybe that's why the registration fee is quite high, but we as a committee are not trying to make money. "We hope the cost of the re- union will balance out, people don't consider such expenses as printing of programs, cor- respondence and other little things that go with the planning when they complain about the fee." If the committee makes any money on the reunion it mil be contributed to the 1972 LCI band. The former LCI students al- ready registered for the reunion come from as far away as Florida, California, Idaho, Washington and Montana in the United States; Surrey, in England and from such dispar- ate pouits in Canada as Mon- treal and Vancouver. Mr. Macintosh said the res- ponse to the reunion has been "pretty successful." He is cer- tain many people arc coming who have not pre-registered. He said ttie reunion is turn- Ing into a family reunion for many brolhers and sisters who allended LCI during the 30s, Several families will almost be completely represented. "The biggest letdown about the reunion has been the res- ponse locally. We had thought Lethbridge residents would get more Mr. Macintosh said. producing odors si by operating, also pour wage into Ihe cily sewer sys- m along 5th Ave. N.

Dr. Loren Hepler of the Uni- versity of Lelhbridge chemh- Iry dcparlment said the odors are offensive to some people, and said he feels the situation should be investigated, and By GREG McINTYRE Herald Slaff Writer Alberta's new press council ill not hear complaints gainst a Lethbridge Commun- .y College decision to close uture board meetings to the lublic. C. C. McLaurin, of Calgary, :hairman of the council, which s to start operation in Sep- .ember, said the press council vill not consider complaints rom Lethbridge, because the Lethbridge Herald, the only laily newspaper in town, did not join the council. If we dealt with the mat- ter, the paper would object to our Mr. McLaurin said in an interview. The Herald and Ihe Calgary Alberlan were the only daily papers in the province not to ioin the proposed council. One of the aims of the vol- untary agency is to "g u a r c against T.ilringements of press freedom and reslriclions in the free flow of information." Mr. McLaurin, a retired chie justice of the trial division ol the Alberta Supreme Court said council regulations are nol yet final, but it is also unh'kely the council will even hear com plaints against non membe newspapers such as The Her aid without the consent of those papers. Lethbridge college president Dr. C. D. Stewart served notice on the news media Tuesday that college board meetings from now on are closed. Board business will be made public through college information of- ficer Gordon Colledge, said the president. Jim Foster, Alberta minister of advanced education has asked all colleges in the prov- ince for information on how board meetings are handled. Mr. Foster's survey of exist- ng policy, instituted after the lew government was elected n 1971, is not yet complete. The chairman of the Alberta olieges commission, Dr. Henry Colesar said in an interview hat there is nothing in the Col- eges Act to prohibit college boards from keeping the public out of meetings. Boards can make all staff appoinlmenls, expenditures and other decisions behind closed doors, he said. The colleges New LCC appointments next week New appointments to Ihe Lelhbridge Community College board of governors will be an nounced next week. A spokesman in the office o! Jim Foster, minister oi ad vanced education, said the rec ommendalions will go to the Cabinet meeting next Wednes day and the new appointments should be made public Thursday.

College budgets are made up .most entirely from public unds. done to remedy il. He suggested that a use might be found lor all waste materials, since il is not per- missible lo flush wastes down :he sewer system, and trucking ttiem awpy is too expensive. He said if someone was willing or forced to pay the price, the odor problem could be reduced or even eliminated. Bui, Dr. Hepler said, since Canada's society is based on ec- onomics, people nave found these wastes aren't valuable enough. Things such as hoofs horns could still be used for glue, but now there are synthetics which are less ex- pensive. Dr. Luke Stebbins of the U of L biology department said cal one it's natural for such industries to produce a bit of an odor. Then when the wind blows in tlie wrong direction, people lend lo get upset. Dr. A. A. Byrne of the Left- bridge Health Unit said that for anti-pollution devices, indus- tries must have a means of burning up odors. A by-law can be passed In a city if odor becomes a nuis- ance, said John Gerla, cily clerk. To have one passed, Ihe at- torney general's office in Ed- monton hcs lo iigree that the odor is actually a nuisance. As for Lethbridge, the possi- bility of establishing a by-law is still being considered, said Mr. Gerla.
