Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 2, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 - TH1 1ITHUID0I HIRAID - Tuetdoy, March 2. 1971 Thomas Williams at Yates March 8 The second Lethbridge Symphony Orchestra concert of the 1970-71 season, to be held Mon-day, March 8, will feature Lethbridg e-born violinist Thomas Williams as guest artist. Mr. Williams, 24, is currently a member of the Montreal Symphony Orchestra and the McGill' Chamber Orchestra. A consistent winner of trophies and awards at Lethbridge and Alberta music tes- V of L group on TV show March 27 Four University of Lethbridge students will appear on the CTV television program University Challenge on March 27. The show is a weekly quiz contest pitting two universities against each other and offering $1,000 prizes to winners and $500 scholarships to the losers. The money goes to the university, not the contestants, but the winning team returns the following week. Gordon Russell, U of L coordinator of student affairs has been meeting with university faculty members to decide how best to select the four students to participate. Once the team has been selected a coach will be assigned by the university to work with the students in preparation for the television show. CTV supplies a set of sample questions for the coach to use as guidelines, although the questions themselves are not used in the actual competition. CTV pays all expenses and will televise a one - minute film on the U of L, being prepared by Harold Tichenor of the university's media services division. U of L officials say they will avoid the trap the University of Calgary fell into when invited to participate in the same show. U of C officials chose the top four students on the campus according to their academic standing. The team lost to the University of Victoria, 360 points to nothing.

Youth jailed on charge of trafficking Bruce Scott Edmundsoo, 18, of Vancouver, was found guilty, Friday, in Lethbridge District Court, of possesion of LSD and posession of LSD for the purpose of trafficking. Chief Judge L. S. Turcotte sentenced Edmundson to 15 months in prison and a one-year probationary period after his release.

Atkinson also received a two-year probation period and was warned not to associate with any drug users or traffickers and not to visit any places frequented by users or traffickers for the time of his probation.

The new application is for a 46-unit motel on the same site. Tosh Kanashiro, city development officer, said the new plans no longer contain the dining and cocktail lounge and coffee shop that were part of the original drawings. He said that with these changes the application would probably meet the density standards of the zoning bylaw. Refusal on the first plans had been on the grounds the development exceeded the standards. The MPC has been holding the line on density standards on Mayor Magrath Drive regarding specific applications, but it has also recommended to city council that the standards be changed to allow double the present floor area. Council has given first reading to the necessary bylaw amendment and a public hearing on the matter will be held March 22. If the revised application is approved Starmor could conceivably go ahead with the 46-unit motel, adding the lounge and coffee shop if the density standard change is approved by council. A delegation is also scheduled to meet with the MPC to discuss the Dunlop Ford development on Mayor Magrath Drive. Walter Stewart of 2521 15 Ave. S. said in a letter to the commission several aspects of the development are causing devaluation of his property. He lists lighting, the public address system, traffic and the general appearance of the back of the development are causes of concern.

By JOAN BOWMAN Entertainment Writer The Alberta Dance Festival, opening next Tuesday, may turn into an experiment in endurance during its five-day set of sessions at the Yates Memorial Centre. The 1971 event, unlike recent past festivals, will be held entirely at the Yates. Previously, the annual provincial competi-' tions in ballet, tap, stage, Highland and Irish dancing, were spread among three city centres: Yates, Southminster Church Hall and the Civic Sports Centre. The concentration of 211 classes for this year's approximately 900 entries is being tried at the request of mainly Highland and Irish teachers. A festival committee spokesman said non-balM teachers, whose students normally dance at the church hall or civic centre, wanted their classes to be held amid the superior facilities of the Yates. The 1970. festival ran for three days; this year's event will run five days1, Tuesday to Saturday, and every hour will ,be cram-packed with classes. Daily sessions Tuesday to Saturday start at 8 or 9 a.m. and are tentatively scheduled to run up to midnight. A maximum of 25 minutes is being allowed between the end of one adjudicator's sessions and the start of another's. The festival, the eighth annual competition, will feature students of 38 teachers, including 23 from Edmonton and three from Lethbridge. Up for grabs will be about 40 scholarships, trophies and medals. New scholarships to be awarded this year are: $100 from . Beta Sigma Phi, $100 from the Lethbridge Gyro Club; $50 from the Lethbridge Symphony Women's League; $50 from the Edmonton Irish Sports and Social Society; and $25 from Mr. and Mrs. Ray JolHffe of Lethbridge. The awards will be presented Saturday night at the Yates following the dancing of highlights from the festival classes. Tap, stage, Highland and Irish dancing will fill the programs Tuesday and Wednes- day; ballet will start Thursday morning.

Hudson of the Lethbridge magistrate's court. The youth had been remanded for one week to await sentencing after his arrest, charging, and trial Feb. 22, when he pleaded guilty to possession of cannibus resin (hashish).
