City team wins hose laying event The Lethbridge fire department second team was the over-all winner at the 3rd annual hose laying contest held in the Lethbridge Exhibition Pavilion Saturday. The contest is designed to test the skills of fire fighters at various tasks they might encounter while handling a fire hose on the job. The two events at Saturday' s competition simulated the emergency replacement of a bad hose link (called change a link), and the rapid switch from a hose link to a pumper truck (called m a k e-and-break). In both events, 2^-incb fire hose is used with waiter, pressure of, 90 pounds per square inch in the hose and a pressure of 100 pounds per square inch at the nozzle. Two attempts per team are allowed in each event; the best time is used to determine the score. In the change-a-link competition the Stratbcona County fire department captured first place with a time of 18.7 seconds; second place went to the Lethbridge second team with a time of 19 seconds. The make-and-break event .finished in a four way tie with each team having a time of 18 seconds. A re-run for the four teams was made, first place was captured by the Straith-cona team with a time of 16.4 The re-run produced a two-way tie for second place, the tie was broken in a second rerun when the Lethbridge first team turned in & time of 16 seconds. Doug Kometz, a Lethbridge fire inspector, said so much enthusiasm had been generated by the men's competition that many fire fighter's wives had formed their own teams. At Saturday's event 10 ladies teams met in a change of link contest. The ladies used Vti inch fire hose with the same water pressure as the men's competition. , The Coutts ladies team ' took first place with a time of 19.7 seconds, second place went to the Strathcona ladies team with a time of 20.3 seconds. The team with the best overall time for both events was the Lethbridge second team. The team captain was Doug Kometz with team members Ed Gilchrist, Bob Deal, Fred Manning and Al Rouodtree. Capturing the best over-all time for the two events qualified the Lethbridge team to compete in the provincial finals to be held next fall. Two teams met in a special make-and-break contest. The team members were from CJOC Radio and a group of Lethbridge insurance adjusters, calling themselves the Arsonists. The CJOC team took first place with a time of 25.2 ' Trophies were presented to the winning' teams at a dinner held Saturday night. Teams from Great Falls, Montana, as well as some from British Columbia took part in the competition.

"I'd be surprised if we're not included in it," he said. VThere has been a lot of pressure put on from Lethbridge for another senior citizens home. I asked for it in the legislature two years ago."

Stewart, president of the Lethbridge Community College, and board members Don Livingstone and Jerome Robbins will be attending the American Association of Junior Colleges convention at Washington, D.C., Feb. 28 to March 5 Church members are urged to use family evening plan Members of the Lethbridge Stake of the LDS Church were urged Sunday to use the church's Family Home Evening plan to build family unity and personal character. Each of six speakers at the general session of the Stake's quarterly conference, dealt with some aspect of the plan. The plan calls for each family to gather in the home each Monday evening for family fun, study, music, prayer and counselling. An outline of suggested lesson and recreation material is provided for each family. The emphasis, however, is not to follow a set pattern but adapt the plan to the needs of the individual family. The 1,560 church members and visitors at the conference -the first conference in the new LDS Stake Centre, 28th St. S. and Scenic Drive - were promised by the leaders that most problems of parents and youth would be avoided if the weekly plan is followed. The church for years has encouraged such family sessions. In recent years leaders have given the plan new emphasis and definition. They suggest if a regular time is not set aside for the family gathering each week, the busy pace of life will preclude such an evening. Music for the confer- ence was directed by Grant Erickson, with organist Hilda Russell. A choir of members from various wards in the stake sang two anthems-Song of Praise, and Bach's Honor and Glory. Three men were given the sustaining vote of the assembly in a recommendation that each be ordained an Elder in the church. They were John Edward Sera, Clarence Dale Taylor and Melvin James Fletcher. E. W. Hinman was sustained as an alternate member of the stake high council, a council of 12 men who form an administrative body, working with the stake presidency. 17 cars pileup in fog RCMP officials believe two cars in collision Friday night set off the 17 car chain-reaction accident 3% miles south of Claresholm on Highway 2.
