THE RAGING BLAZE AT ITS HEIGHT -Bryan Wilson Photo Police investigating Drugs slipped into food of five students Five Lethbridge students have become recent victims of an unfortunate form of drug abuse. Dr. C. D. Stewart, president of the Lethbridge Community College, and Dr. Sam Smith, president of the University of Lethbridge, said: at a joint news conference Friday the five students, all from the university and college, had apparently had drugs of some sort placed in something they had eaten. Dr. Smith said that while the actual circumstances were not clear at the present time, there was no d o u b t the drugs had OWEN AGENTS FOR ALLIED VAN LINES been involuntarily ingested. According to Dr. Stewart, the first incident occurred several weeks ago and probably was related to a sugar cube from the college's food services. A urinalysis Monday had confirmed that the student, a girl, had been given LSD, he said. Since then there have been four more cases. Three girls were taken to hospital Wednesday after having taken what was thought to be "speed." All three had been drinking soft drinks and it was thought the drug may have been dropped in their drinks. Dr. Stewart said two of the girls were released the same day, but he was not sure about the condition of the third. The final incident, again involving a female student, occurred Friday. The student was taken to hospital, Dr. Stewart said, but there was no information as to the nature of the drug or the girl's condition. Following the last incident an assembly of students, staff and faculty was called to inform everyone of the situation. Dr. Smith said that while he did not want to cause undue concern or panic he felt it was best that those concerned should know as much as possible about what was happening on the campus. Dr. Stewart added that making the situation public was an important step in controlling it. In addition, steps had been taken in the college's food services department to eliminate as much as possible any recurrences. Bulk sugar and unwrapped sugar cubes, for example, have been removed.

THE FINEST IN OFFICE FURNISHINGS 328-7411 iiiiimisisiui By RON WATMOUGH Herald City Editor The home of 49 years of Lethbridge sports history disappeared Friday night in a raging inferno. The cheers of victory and silence of defeat of hundreds of thousands' of spectators over the years, were drowned out in 90 minutes of roaring, crackling flames. The blaze which destroyed the 49 - year - old Lethbridge Arena broke out at 10:30 p.m. Friday. Within two hours the structure was in smouldering ruins. The fire, almost poetically, came at the 19-second mark of the third period in a junior hockey game between the Lethbridge Sugar Kings and the Edmonton Maple Leafs. The Kings were behind 2-1. The third period of the game will be played in Taber tonight at 8 o'clock. The arena was home-ice for some of the most memorable games in the annals of Alberta hockey history. During the pre-Second World War years, the Lethbridge Maple Leafs were a senior power, featuring such names as Bob Kirkpatrick, Kenny Stewart, Andy Young, Pete Slo-bodian, Garth Boesch, Mel Lunde and others. In later years it was the home of the Lethbridge Native Sons junior team which produced such players as Eddie Dorohoy, Bill Ramsden, Guyle Fielder, Earl Ingarfield, Vie Stasiuk and a dozen others. In recent years it has been headquarters for the Lethbridge Sugar Kings. The Lethbridge Kinsmen played in an intermediate hockey league in the early years of the arena. The Lethbridge Maple Leafs senior club played in an Alberta loop during the 1937 to the early 1940's period. Milk River businessman Herman Thole bought the arena from the city in 1937 for $18,-000. It was enlarged and the artificial ice put in for the senior league play. A group of businessmen bought the arena in 1940. It was later sold to Sicks' Lethbridge Brewery. The city took over operations' of the arena again in 1959, and in 1963, bought the arena back for $47,-500. A major renovation was given the facilities in 1965-including an entire new front, new concession and washrooms and painting-at a cost of $171,� 000. Additional changes were planned for the arena.

Write Box 38f Lethbridge Herald The city's 1975 budget estimates listed $105,000 to be spent - with some $65,000 for concrete bleachers and $40,000 for dressing rooms and concession alterations. . No estimate has been given on the replacement cost of the arena. No word has been given on whether it will be replaced. Bill Brown, director of the city's parks and recreation department, said Saturday some announcement will likely be made early next week. The city has recently been considering its need for additional ice facilities. Some possibility of a new facility at the Lethbridge Exhibition grounds has been "on the drawing board" for the past couple of years. Slate elected John Howard sets goals for the year Frank Harper, a researcher at the Lethbridge Research Station, was re-elected president of the John Howard Society Lethbridge branch Friday. Dick Cook, a field officer with the Veterans' Land Administration was elected to the newly-created position of vice-chairman, and Earl Ross, purchasing agent for Baalim Wholesale Ltd., was elected treasurer of the society. Mr. Harper said the two major goals of the society for 1971 will be to "increase our income to match our needs," and to develop the existing volunteer progrj...i.
