Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 16, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 - THE J.ETHBR1DGE HERALD - Friday, March 16, 1973 v. Provincial court Attempted robbery case to hearing Two men charged with the attempted armed' robbery Feb. 28 of a mail truck at Brocket pleaded not guilty Thursday in provincial court in Pincher Creek and elected to be tried by magistrate. Jean Jacques Rochon, 43, of Montreal, and Paul Lukiv, 46, cf New Westminster will appear before Provincial Judge L. B. Levine in Pincher Creek April 19 for a preliminary hearing. The two men are out on bail. A 25 - year - old Lethbridge man, charjvd Jan. 13 with possession of an offensive weapon, was sentenced Thursday in provincial court in Lethbridge to 30 days in jail. Donald Elliott was committed Jan. 18 to a 60-day examination in Alberta Hospital in Ponoka, and the time spent in confinement there was treated as an additional sentence. Elliott was in the Dallas Hotel bar on the evening of Jan. 13 when an argument broke out between Joseph Robinson and several other persons. Robinson pulled a six-inch knife from his coat, but it was taken away from him. Elliott decided he would help Robinson, and went home to get a five-inch butcher knife. When he returned, both he and Robinson were charged. Robinson, 47, also of Lethbridge, received a three-month sentence Jan. 23 on the same charge. Rent hikers no problem in Alberta-officials New library needs $100,000 The Lethbridge Library Board is appealing for donations to meet the estimated $100,000 cost of furnishings and equipment for the new library. Construction of the $990,000 structure at the cornier of 9th St. and 5th Ave. S. is to begin next week with a sod-turning ceremony Monday. City council allocated sufficient funds to meet the cost of building the new library last year, but not landscaping and furnishings. The building, expected to be open to the public in February, 1974, will have a floor'area of 28,000 square feet on two floors. It should satisfy the city's library needs beyond the 60,000 population mark, and is capable of easy expansion to double The recently - publicized practice of landlords raising their rents to old age pensioners after the proposed increase in pensions w-.s announced, has not affected Alberta. Senior citizens' homes managed by a foundation and all nursing homes in the province have their rents set by the government and no change in those rates has been announced from Edmonton, a government official told The Herald.  Under existing government policy, nursing homes may not charge more than $3 per day for beds in a ward and meals for pensioners. The policy also sets an $80 to $90-per-month rental on rooms in senior citizens' complexes. Don LeBaron, administrator for the three local senior citizens' lodges, said there are no thoughts now of raising any rents, although he added there is "an excellent chance" the local foundation may be requisitioning for assistance for the first time from the city. A decision will be made before the end of March on whether it will be necessary to requisition the city, he said. Lou Protti, of the Alberta Hospital Services Commission in Edmonton, said the average pensioner now has no problem meeting the rates charged by nursing homes and senior citizens' lodge. He said he "knows nothing yet about an increase" in the rates. THE SALVATION ARMY ANNUAL TURKEY TAKE-OUT HOT TURKEY SUPPER DELIVERED TO YOUR DOOR Sat., March 31 .

RICK ERVIN photo Taber highway near the Accepted as people No discrimination felt by Mormons its .planned size, says city librarian George Dew. , The building has been designed in an arrowhead shape, in six 45 - foot - square modules. Most public services will be' on the upper floor, with a multipurpose room capable of seating 200 people for lectures, films, and exhibitions on the lower floor. The main entrances from 0th street and 5th Avenue will be to the upper floor by way of gently sloping walkways and a broad flight of six stairs on the 5th Avenue side. An elevator to the lower floor is included to ensure it is accessible to the handicapped. Mr. Dew said donations to the library will be accepted by the city treasurer's department at city hall. Paris student jaunt approved by trustees By NOEL BUCHANAN Herald Staff Writer Mormons do not feel any social discrimination in Lethbridge, a noon luncheon of the Southern Alberta Council on Public Affairs was told Thursday. "People are accepted for what they are as individuals and not by the religion they belong to," said Melvin Jubber, a mathematics instructor at Lethbridge Community College and a high councillor of the Lethbridge Latter-day Saint Stake. "I came to Canada and to Lethbridge from South Africa to raise my family in the full program of the LDS church," Mr. Jubber said, speaking to more than 40 persons gathered at Sven Ericksen's Family Restaurant. "I have many close friends in Lethbridge, Mormons and non-members. Our family appreciates living here." Mr. Jubber was speaking on the social implications of being a Mormon in the community. Mormon health laws, known to members as the word of wisdom, teach abstainance trom alcohol, tea and coffee, Mr. Jubber said. "Anyone who doesn't use these everyday commodities will be regarded as different," PRODUCT OF NISSAN "Our Deal Has Always Been The Best Deal"... Mr. Jubber said. "There can be misunderstandings arising from such observances by Mormons." Mr. Jubber said Latter-day Saints like to invite people to social functions conducted by the church, but meet resistance whenever non - members fear they will "get religion rammed down their throat." "Some of our members try to take an active part in community activities," Mr. Jubber said. "But there is some friction over Sunday observance. For that reason we don't participate in stock car racing or little league baseball." There are about 4,000 LDS members in Lethbridge, Mir. Jubber said explaining about 50 per cent actively attend church regularly. "There are three LDS church buildings in the community. Each structure serves two wards and each ward is led by a bishop. In addition, there is a student branch led by their own bishop," Mr. Jubber said. Spiritual leaders in the LDS church are drawn from members working in other capacities in the community, Mr. Jubber said. "Businessin e n, tradesmen, teachers, a lawyer, motor mechanic and a dentist are all filling spiritual roles in the church," he said. "I am pleased such a variety of men contribute to spiritual as well as temporal needs of the community." Asked about his denomination's attitude to birth control, Mr. Jubber said Mormons are encouraged to have large families. "We believe the family is an internal unit. For that reason, and because it helps build the church, we don't encourage birth control!" Challenged about the American influence in Mormon beliefs, Mr. Jubber said he couldn't'see the central church government ever moving from the United States. "We believe we are led by one prophet at a time, so we couldn't have separate churches in Canada or England or elsewhere." Mormons do have stake presidents and regional representatives governing local geographic areas, Mr. Jubber explained. "Being misunderstood is the hardest problem," he concluded. "Some people say we don't believe the Bible. Mormons do believe the Bible is the word of God. No way does the Book of Mormon supplant it. Another charge is that we are not Christians. We are!" VofL geography students to conduct downtown study University of Lethbridge geography students started Thursday a week - long survey of downtown Lethbridge to determine residents' housing preferences. Operating in teams, the 14 [ students will be equipped with a letter of introduction from Dr. G. H. Zieber, chairman of the U of L geography department, identifying their project. Each team is expected to inter- view six to eight people. The students hope to learn people's views on the positive and negative factors of dwelling in the city centre, their attitudes toward future urban development in their area, and their views on the. ideal development they would like to see replace present facilities. Results from this study are expected next month. 67.67 TRY THESE 1973 DATSUN 1200's FOR SIZE AND PRICE AS LOW AS DOWN and '67.67 A MONTH ON OUR 1200 SEDAN 11.73% Interest Over 42 Months On Approved Credit Also some excellent savings on a few new 1972 Models with automatic transmissions.
