14 THE LETH8RIDGE HERAIO Friday, June 30, 1972 Safe holiday boating urged The best tip for safe boating is to know the restrictions on yourself and your boat before venturing out on a lake. Lack of confidence, panic and fear can be a killer, so too can over confidence. So said ROMP Constable Lyle Plesants as he discussed boating safely with The Herald. Constable Plcsnnts and Con- stable Jim Morgolh are spec- ially trained in boating safety and stationed at Water! on Lakes National Park for the summer months. Both constables have taken a safe boating to acquaint them with all facets of safety on the water. two-week KCMP course designed Part of their duties at the park include a continuing in- spection program of boats in the park. The inspections are carried out "as boating traffic re- quires" and include spot checks of boaters both at dock- side and on the water. "All boats must be equipped with two oars and oar locks, or two paddlns, Ministry of Trans- port-approved floatation gear for each accupant, and proper lighting if the boat is to be operated at night." said Const. Morgoth. "The safety equipment re- quirements apply to any small vessel, whether being used by Aqua Tech project to resume work Aug. 1 JIM MAYBIE Herald Staff Writer Construction is scheduled to resume Aug. 1 on the Aqua Tech Ltd. activated car- bon plant in the city's indus- trial park, The Herald has learned. Laurence Gibson of Calgary, company president, said the first activated carbon plant in Canada will be on production in October. Aqua Tech is also purchasing the pilot plant developed by the Alberta Research Council, with which it will conduct ex- periments utilizing other mat- erials such as bone and corn husks for producing pollution control materials.

Mr. Gibson said the Leth- Tidge plant can easily be ex- landed to include three more mits to produce activated car- ion. one, or several sail! Const. Plesants. If a boat which has been spot-checked on the water is found to have unsatisfactory or defective safety gear it is asked lo return to shore to correct the problem. Both constables agreed otic of the most important things any boater could do at the be- ginning of each season was to familiarize himself with the Small Vessel Regulations of Canada. The regulations are available at any RCMP de- tachment or Department ol Transport office. Common- sense is an import- ant factor in boating safely, just as ar.y place else. Make sure never to have more weight or passengers in a boat than suggested by tbe Ministry of Transport. Don't use an outboard motor larger than suggested for you boat by the manufacturer and the DoT.

Dr. Holmes was dean of arts and science at the U of L from 1967 until last year, when he was granted a one year sabbatical leave to do research in Ottawa. He takes over the post which has been vacant since Dr. Bill Beckel assumed the presidency of the university.

Austria displayed a rare majesty and beauty of move- ment In the graceful equeslrian ballet presented in Lethbridge Thursday. The horses performed before a capacity crowd at the Exhi- bition Pavilion. The Lipizzans ave magnifi- cent, but their performance lacked precision. This was evi- dent in the Quadrille in which nine riders perform intricate dressage movements to the ac- companiement of music. A couple of the riders tended to lose formation..Part of the dif- ficulties experienced in the Quadrille were probably due to Herrman family. Colonel Hcrr- raan's daughters are the only women in the world (o perform in the "Airs Above the Ground." The Herrman Lipizzans lack the perfection of the perfor- mances presented by the Span- ish Riding School in Vienna. Colonel 'Herrman, however, should be given credit for in- troducing this equestrian art form to North America. De- spite the imperfections in the program, predates miss this opportunity to view the classic Lipizzaos. no person who ap- fine horses should cramped arena space. The outstanding feature of start this fall on the Business Forms plant The company inquiries from lias received overseas re- garding establishment of activ- ated carbon plants, Mr. Gibson aid, and consideration is be- ng given to the matter. The Lelhb ridge plant is a scale-up of the pilot model pro- duced by the Alberta Research Council. Canadian industry Imports more than seven million pounds of activated carbon a year 'rom the U.S and Europe, Mr. Gibson said. Activated carbon, because of its super absorbent qualities, is being used In an increasing number of applications to re- move or entrap impurities and pollutants. Activated carbon was used 50 years ago in gas masks to protect allied troops. It was later used to treat poisoned water and for quantity produc- tion of penicillin. Its use has doubled in recent years and it is now used for water purification, air purifica- tion and conditioning, waste treatment, oil refining, brew- ing and distilling, sugar refin- ing, gas processing, removal of pesticides from cattle, cigar- ette filters and by the phar- maceutical industry. A pound of activated carbon can filter as much air as an individual breathes in an en- tire year. The Astrodome in Houston uses 31 tons of activ- ated carbon to filter the air In the stadium. Activated carbon is also used in the space pro- gram and in atomic submar- ines, Mr. Gibson said. water ski in a congested area and keep a safe distance from anchored bouts whether driving a boat of your own, or water skiing behind one. Don't drink and operate a power boat they can be as dangerous as a car. Moore slated for the city's industrial park, Sam Pollard, company vice- president, said Thursday. Mr. Pollard said he hopes he will be able to make an offi- cial announcement on the por- posed project in August and have a roof on the building be- fore winter. Moore has applied to the De- partment of Regional Econo- mic Expansion for a grant. Plans for the plant have been re- vised. Distillery will encourage south grain corn industry Farmers ivorried INSURANCE IS JUST NOT PART OF OUR BUSINESS -IT IS OUR ONLY BUSINESS Phone 327-3009 CONN VAN HORNE JACK WARBUXTON 507A 7th STREET SOUTH Assurance of- incentives for farmers to grow corn in south- ern Alberta was welcomed Thursday when Alberta Agri- culture Minister Dr. Hugh Homer turned sod for the city's million distillery. Location of the plant in Leth- bridge, close to the irrigation belt wiih up to acres available for corn production, was partially determined on the word of She provincial gov- ernment that it would help to establish the corn industry in the region. The assurance came at a time when acreages of corn acreage dropped to 800 acres, less than half the total of 1971 when fanners planted acres. Dr. Horner said at a press conference at the University oi Lethbridge Thursday evening that fear of the unknown within the grain corn industry was re- sponsible for the lack of inter- est in the crop. He said there must be a pro- gram to interest producers in the crop, pointing the finger at the extension division of the de- partment of agriculture as the main force behind the pro gram. A special meeting, called by the industrial arm of Calgary Power Ltd. and involving the ADA, grain handling compa nies, the Alberta Corn Commit- tee and several farmers, was old that extension work would >e vital for the success of the ;rain corn industry. Ralph Trimmer, regional su- pervisor for the plant industry Hvision of the ADA, said armers must be induced to grow the crop and researchers must find the best cultural jractices to follow to get the )est results. The Alberta Corn Committee has been lobbying, without suc- cess, for the implementation of two centralized permanent grain corn drying stations one for Taber and Ihe other for Bow Island. The thought of committee members and the farmers present at the meeting was that the implementation of this type of facility would eliminate many of the problems for grow- Herman Penny, vice-pres- ident of operations for Lcth- bridge's new Industry, Interna- tional Distillers Canada Limited, added fuel to the ar- gument for centralized drying facilities when he said corn drying at the plant location was not favorable. Stan Preyman, a corn spe- cialist at the Lethbridge He- search Station and member the corn committee, said there must be a co-operative effort by government, the grain han- dlers and the farmers to get the centralized started. the performance was the "Airs Above the Ground." This in- cluded such spectacular feats as the capriole and courbelte. The capriole is a leap from a standing position in which the horse kicks out violently with his hind legs. To perform tho courbette, the horse jumps on his hind legs while holding his front legs up off the ground. The riders had some trouble getting their horses to perform these precise movements. The feats are astounding when fin ally achieved, but the difficul- ties somewhat marred the quality of the performance. The grace and lightness of movement with which these horses perform is amazing, considering their size. They are large horses, weighing up to pounds. The Lipizzans were originally used for war. Their spectacular leaps were designed to terrorize foot sol- diers. The Lipizzan tradition is car- ried on today by the Spanish Hiding school hi Vienna. This school was founded in the IGth century by the Hapsburgs, the ruling family of Austria. The Original Herrman Royal Lipizzan Stallions, under the direction of Colonel Ottomar International Distillers Cana- da Limited is extremely inter- ested in encouraging the grain corn industry in southern Al- berta. Herman Penny, vice-presi- dent in charge of operations, told a special meeting of pro- ducers, grain handlers and Al- berta department of agricul- ture officials Thursday that his company won't get started in a large way until 1974. By then, he said, the com pany will need bushels of grain corn per year. IVo hockey lot V oi L He said that by 1984 the com- pany will be using bush- els of corn. A. L. Hock, plant distiller for British Columbia Distilling Company Limited in New West- minster, said the bush- els of grain corn now used by his company comes mainly from the St. Paul-Minneapolis, Minnesota region. He said this supply can be re- placed by Alberta corn "if the price is right." Both Mr. Hock and Mr. Pen- ny said either rye or corn can be used but that corn was bet- ter because it is easier to use in the distilling process. Mr. Penny said he would like to use corn but advised tho meeting that his company won't pay enormous prices. this year Mr. Hock said southern Al- icrla farmers could expect to receive about 30 cents a bushel jnore for their corn than their U.S. counterparts. Tlu's is due mainly to the reduced freight rates and the lack of duty for grain corn entering B.C. from Alberta. The price and preference for com relates to the higher amount of carbohydrates. Mr. Penny said wheat was not being used by the distilling industry now because "it is not readily available." He pointed to the new regu- lations which stipulate that any wheat used for domestic con- sumption must bring a price of ?3 per bushel. This far out- reaches the S1.30 to price paid for corn. Herrman, are not affiliated with the Spanish Riding School. The performance, however, is patterned after that of the Spanish school and the move- ments of the "Airs Above the Ground" are the same. The horses are ridden by members and in-laws of the drying facilities Accident Nellie N. R. Hiemstra, 21, of Coaldale, remained in serious condition at Lethbridge Mu- nicipal Hospital this morning following a spectacular single- car accident shortly before 5 p.m. Thursday. Miss Hiemstra received mul- tiple scalp cuts, head injuries and multiple abrasions to her body when the car she was driving and the only occupant in it skidded from Highway 3 about three miles east of Leth- bridge, entered the median and continued to slide, skidded out of control back on to the high- way for a short distance, then back to the median where, il overturned and threw the wom- an from it. A decision by the University of Lethbridge students' society council will effectively kill tha university's hockey team for al least a year. The students' council recent- ly raised the student fees by despite the fact that the majority of the student body voted in favor of a fee in- come. The increase would have generated enough money to al- low the council to provide the support which the physi- cal education department had requested to enable the hockey team to enter the college hock- ey conference. "The council decision will have the unfortunate effect of killing the hockey team for this said Dr. Jim Day, head of the physical education de- partment. "But it is their prerogative, and they have decided that they are not in the business of supporting inter-university ath- Dr. Day said it is difficult to understand how the student's society council was justified in ordering a fee increase when the students asked for a hike. "You can't really put them down for it. They are concern- ed with other things like day- care centres, but for this year at least, the hockey team is dead unless someone suddenly comes along with about he said. The lack of funds not only means that the U of L will not be able to join the college con- ference but It will also be forced out of the city recrea- tional league wiu'ch it has par- ticipated in for the past three years.

It wasn't the flapper age or the time for short bobhed hair with lots of makeup and bright red lipstick, No, that was the 20s. The 30s was a time of its own. Beth Stewart, a Lethbridge Collegiate Institute student and a teenager during the 30s tries to explain it: "I guess we're going to sound pretty funny and different, but we really weren't that much different then the kids of to- day. We enjoyed a good time and many of the things were the she snid. As far as school life went, Mrs. Stewart said most of the procedures are similar to those of today, with the exception ol the semester system.

Each class had a omeroom teacher and moved rom room to room for instruc- on. "Our extra-curricular activi- les may have been a little dif- erent; I don't remember wheth- ;r or not we bad home econo- mics, but we did have all the usual high school things like a newspaper and a yearbook." Mrs. Stewart said fashions or clothing were very different .n the 30s than they are today. "We wore dresses, or skirts and blouses for school and most Pants weren't recognized well enough to wear to any function." Mrs. Stewart said the pants were quite loose and baggy. "If they hadn't been, I'm sure my mother wouldn't have let me wear them. We never had any pants that would resemble the jeans of today." She said they wore their pants for "roughing it" and maybe to a few basket- ball games. "The 30s were the era of the butterfly skirt everyone had a butterfly skirt. The skirls were pleated from the wais down with little tiny pleats and when the girls danced they flared out." With the butterfly skirts the girls wore the famer bobby socks. The length of th skirts was just below the knee Velvet was the most-demand ed fabric; huge fur collar fwilh real fur because fake fur hadn't made its entrance yet) were the fad; and hats ihat :ame right down over the fore- head were tbe craze. Mrs. Stewart said the heavy makeup look was not evident in he 30s. The girls wore mainly ipstick The lipstick colors vere quife bright, but Mrs. Ste- vart said they didn't have the choice of as many different shades as the girl? do in the s. Hair was curly with perma- nent waves, finger waves or marcel waves. In the early 30s :he hair was still quite short, from 1935 on it was worn long with Ihe waves. Many 'amous hairstyles were the page boy, the duBarry roll (tight roll around the back of the and the boycut. In the 30s the men wore the renowned Oxford bags and sheik pants. The pants had wide (lares but were different than flares of today, in that they were not slimmer in through the knees and the thighs. The main difference be- tween men's clothing then and now was the lack of bright col- ors. Men usually wore plain shirts and colors with vesls, ties and grey flannels. For formal oc- casion they wore dinner jack- ets, Tbe boys never wore caps, but kept their hair slicked down close to their heads. Vv'hat did everyone do for entertainment? LCI sponsored two proms a year one at Christmas and one at Raster. Mrs. Stewart said the girls wore full length formals to these dances. Outside of school dances, many dances were held at the Henderson Lake Pavilion. The most famous dance the jive began in the 30s. The 30s were also the last days of the jitney dances. In jitney dances, the hoys would buy a book of tickets for a dollar, meaning it would cost them ten cents for every dance they bad with a girl. Mart Kenny, who will be playing at the LCI reunion Monday everc'ng, is remember- ed for introducing the lambeth walk dance to Lethbridge, PARKSIDE COIN-OP LAUNDRY DRY CLEAN 2634 SOUTH PARKSIDE DRIVE SUMMER HOURS IN EFFECT UNTIL SEPTEMBER 17 LAUNDRY SECTION- 8 A.M.
