The scale models often duplicate in miniature the trackage, scenery, rolling stock and operations of the actual railroads. Many hours are spent achieving a realistic reproduciton of the real thing, using plans and photographs of the actual railroad. One of the more unusual models' at the display was a "coffee-table" railroad built by Marianne Gardner, age 11, and her father, Robert Gardner. The entire model is built into an actual coffee table and, since it is covered with a glass case, it could conceivably be used as a table while the train chugged merrily away. Marianne said the model took about six months to build, working two hours a night, six nights a week. The local club has 11 members, most of whom have a model of some sort. A member described the club and its activities as "a fun business" rather than a formal organization with elected officers and regular meetings. Although it is possible, he said, to spend an almost unlimited amount of money on the hobby, a person can get started with as little as $35. Most members spend between 50 cents and $2 a week, he said, for what amounts to 30 or 40 hours of constructive entertainment. The display by the local club Council meeting The Lethbridge Chapter of the Council for Exceptional Children will meet at the Dorothy Gooder School Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. The highlight of the meeting will be a talk on Education of tne Native Indian by Paul Van Cleve. The public is invited to attend. was part of Model Railroad Week, sponsored by the Na-tonal Model Railroad Association. The association has some 17,000 members in Canada, the USA, England and Australia. In addition to the actual working models, visitors could also see films on railroading, a slide presentation and the members themselves engaged in the process of building the various components of the models. Alcohol main problem drug with 15-35 years age group "Ten times as many people between the ages of 15 and 35 are dependent upon alcohol as there are on all other drugs," said Mr. George X on Saturday night, speaking at the 13th anniversary of the introduction of the Alcoholics Anonymous program into the Lethbridge Correctional Institution. Mr. X said that alcoholism was a serious social problem leading to unacceptable social behavior. He deplored the tolerance of the problem saying that something could be done about it. "People do not wait to treat diabetes until they have to amputate a limb," he said. Liquor store opening is delayed The move into the new south-side premises of the Alberta Liquor Store has been delayed. Originally scheduled for today, the move has been put off until some needed materials are obtained. The new store, a self-service operation, is located directly east of the present outlet at 423 7th St. S. R i' R r' H H \ \f r: "They should not wait to tackle alcoholism until there are tragic consequences." Alcoholics should be forced to face up to their problem, he said, and pointed with approval to the program in which those convicted of impaired driving are required to take a special course. In addition to guest speaker Mr. X, several other members of AA addressed the gathering held in the institution's gym. Visitors from the outside came from as widely separated centres as Edmonton and Maple Creek, Sask. Institutional groups of AA aire growing, it was reported. Not enough men have sponsors, however, when they leave correctional institutions. Outside members were challenged to show greater concern about this.
