Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 4, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta J6 THE UTH6RIDGE HERALD Sciturctny, Mc.rth 4, 1977 By MARGARET LUCKHURST We in southern Alberta are not gel tin" excited about the HC.MP centennial which will take phKV in 1973-7-1, I'd like to know why we're so indifferent about it. Can't we understand and appreciate that the, biggest thing ever to happen in Western Canada was the ar- rival of the in 187-1? Not (lie fur trade, or the soil ill'.: down of miles of steel or the discovery of oil. The one single event (Jiat made the west safe for expansion was the coming of that small band of not- too-wi'H-trained men. with little to support their cause apart from ideals of law and order. H they hadn't arrived when they did. there is little doubt that the entire area from the bead of the Great Lakes to Ihe Pacific Ocean would have become a sanctuary for plunderers, swindlers and murderers. That this vast expanse millions of square miles of land was not peremptorily grabhed-up by the super-mipht of the United States and lost to the Dom- inion forever is in itself something of a miracle. As it was. it was close, awfully close; and no one in the federal government at that time deserves any credit for pulling the issue out of the fire. But it may come as a shock to Albertans that few Canadians east of the Hat have ever heard of Ihe Whoop-l'p Trail, the whisky posts, and Jerry Potts. I would even suggest that few Canadians coukl give any reasonable historical account of the police' arrival at their eventual destination. 1 believe most assume the barracks were ready and waiting for them, with the townsfolk waving flags on their arrival. Mind you, these same fellow Canadians can talk eloquently about Custer's Last Stand, Davy Crockett am! Jesse James, but how many of them could name two of the original force who came west in 1874? In fact how many of us in Lethbridge can name two of the force who came west in 1874? It's a good question! In a few short years, their subtle methods of re- straint, rather than sheer strength, made the NWMP world-renowned. And they got their initial training on our own plains, literally right in our own back- yards. A lot has happened in the west in the last cen- tury. We should be preparing (o in '73 and '74 so that the rest of Canada will know1 not only where the action was at a hundred years ago, but that there is still action here and now. So let's get the centennial moving! THE ABSENT GUEST Take John The Absent Guest lo dinner tonight. Can Save Says. Spend Ihe money you otherwise would spend on a guest on his plate, and help save the lives of the world's hungry children. Dei en dec driving course set The Lethbridge branch of the Alberta Motor Association sponsor an advanced defensive driving course stalling at 1 p.m. March 14 in Room 4 of the Civic Sports Centre. Ralph Spicor of the 'AMA said the objectives of Ihe course wore to c n courage people to improve Ihoii1 driving, educate drivers in the tcchiuqucs of avoiding accidents, improve general driving skills and make drivers aware of any psycho physical weaknesses may have. Mr. Spicer .said I lie course will consist of four, two-hour sesstons ami an aclual individual driving session with each student. The course is open to the pub- lic, but each student must pro- vide his own car for (he driv- ui g session. U of ore Ihe road session a person must present a current and valid Alberta driver's licence, car registra- tion and pink insurance card. Fees tui the session are for members and for non members. Regis tratj on will be held at the first class meeting. Satisfactory participation in the class can mean the re- moval of two demerit points from a persons driver's lic- ence and a reduction in insur- I ance rates for AMA members 1 using AMA car insurance.

Indian speech habits are cost- ing natives a lot of jobs. Their speech is frequently short and jerky, rather than smcoth-flowing, said Joan Wa- terfield, a local columnist and j broadcaster. The for the develop- ment of lhe habit could in- clude: many youths speak their native tongue until school age; and native people are shy anci nervo us when they enter a white-dominated society, Choppy speech habits may be one of the reasons few Indians are seen working in retail stores where communication the buying public- is essen- tial, no matter v.hat type of job the individual does, she said.
