The two men were caught by a city police constable in the process of trying to gain entry at Acme Television Ltd., 535 13th St. S., early in the morning of Feb. 26. Judge A. E. Elford said in an attempted break and entry case, it must be proved beyond a doubt the accused went beyond preparation for the actual break and entry. He said the evidence given by the constable and me evidence found at the site was important. The marks on the window, which matched the tire iron found at the site, also were important in the decision. Miller, since 1962, has been sentenced to some 2ft years for a series of similar offences, including six counts of theft under $50. Haas had three previous convictions, including two attempted theft charges, which netted him fines or days in jail in default Both men are married and have children. Judge Elford said the frequency of break and entry crimes in Lethbridge influenced his decision to pass a stiffer sentence. Both men will be on probation for one year when they get out of jail.

The constitution of the Social Credit League of Alberta stipulates that filing of intention to run for a candidacy must be concluded 14 days in advance of a nomination meeting.

The Progressive Conservatives named its Lethbridge East candidate on Monday. Begorra! And where9s your green? Faith and begorra if the leprechauns are peeking over your shoulder and you think you're hearing faint strains of Toora loora loora, you're being reminded in the good old Irish way that today is St. Patrick's day, and the time for the wearing of the green! St. Patrick was the boy, tradition says, who brought religion to Ireland, chased snakes away and did a great deal to put a stop to endless quarrels between irritable sections of the country. But he isn't credited with making it the greenest country on earth, as the Irish justly claim. True Irish are convinced that a "little bit of heaven fell from out the sky one day, and settled in the ocean in a spot so far away." The angels had a hand in its development, for "they sprinkled it with Stardust to make the shamrocks grow, it's the only place you'll find them - no matter where you go. Then they dotted it with silver, to make its lakes so grand; and when they had it finished, sure they called it Ireland."

REALLY, OFFICER, IT'S .OS IN MILK - Fifteen �% eunce glasses of milk (3/4 of a gallon) in 43 seconds? Well, thafs Lethbridge Community College school of agriculture students' record in the first annual college milk-drinking contest. The agriculture students challenged all comers Tuesday, and won three of four contests, against LCC marketing students, nursing students and against contest judges Dr. David Clark and Pat Webb.

Violin-piano recital was "one of finest9 By DEAN BLAIR Associate Professor of Music, U of L Violinist Francis Chaplin and pianist Lucien Needham paired in recital at the Yates Memorial Centre Monday night to produce one of the finest performances of this year's concert season. The two artists, excellent in their own rights, combined in a musical ensemble rarely achieved by this type of piano-string combination. The opening work, Beethoven's Sonata in D major, Op. 12, No. l for violin and piano, is an early Beethoven sonata and perhaps not as substantial as later attempts in this medium. The first movement was performed by the duo with the lid to the piano closed and presented some problems of sonority and clarity. When the lid was raised for the rest of the performance, it became clear the problem had not been with the performers. Clear skies to return The advent of a cool high pressure front moving into southern Alberta has created a fairly unstable air mass, and was responsible for 1.2 inches of snow that fell at Lethbridge early this morning. The forecast does not call for any more snow, and as the high advances, skies are expected to clear. Temperatures during the day should be near 35 above, dropping down to near 10 above overnight. Winds will be light. The high and low temperatures Tuesday were 38 above and 22 above. The record temperatures for March 17 are 74 above, set in 1905, and 21 below set in 1943. The high and low temperatures one year ago today were 43 above and 20 above. The second movement, a set of variations, came off beautifully integrated and balanced with both performers revealing sensitive musical insights supported by a solid technique. The third movement, a classical rondo, provided a rollicking, lighthearted finale to a well-played sonata. The. second number on the program was Grieg's Sonata in G, Op. 13, a rarely-performed work which is worthy of more attention man it receives. It is to a certain extent cast in the mould of the German tradition but the magnificent Nordic lyricism of Grieg's melodic gift is ever present. Phe lyric flights of this work were captured by both performers' with bold and expressive musical gestures backed by firm technical control. Mr. Chaplin's tone in the. lower violin register was particularly effective in the first movement. The Ciaccona in G Minor by Vital! was the next work and its performance provided the musical highlight of the evening. The control of the musical shaping was carefully perfected with the climaxes built and mastered with great musical effectiveness. Mr. Chaplin's full-bodied and strongly projected tone was used to advantage in this work. Two old favorites-Kreister's Caprice Viennois and Liebes-freud-ended the program with a bit of sweet musical nostal gia. Beautifully written for the violin, these works received their due under Mr. Chaplin's bow and left no doubt that the audience had heard a recital by two performers of real artistic stature. Throughout the evening Mr. Needham's performance was remarkable for its musical sensitivity to the ensemble'balance: His' playing was always in tasteful support of and never an intrusion on the soloist. It was a rare musical event with the only regret the modest size of the audience in attendance. man receives appointment Shing Lee of Lethbridge has been appointed assistant irrigation land manager for all crown lands served by the Lethbridge.irrigation office, the provincial cabinet announced Tuesday. Mr. Lee, who formerly served as an economist with the Igorernment's irrigr.tion department, will replace Miss Bernice Beasely, Lethbridge, who resigned recently. Mr. Lee will handle the sale of all crown lands in the Lethbridge district, and the collection of water rights from former crown - operated irrigation districts such as the St., Mary River Irrigation District and the west block of the Bow River Irrigation District.

The closing night's events at the five - day festival included 27 selected performances by student competitors, plus a guest appearance by adjudicator Brian Foley of Toronto. Unfortunately Mr. Foley, assessor during the week of tap and stage classes, discovered a dance festival is no place for an adjudicator to give a public performance. There are too many other adjudicators around. Following a very fast, well-received jazz routine, Mr. Foley disappeared into the wings of the Yates Memorial Centre stage but was shortly summoned back by a ring on the adjudicator's bell. He returned to face a rough, tough criticism by Gwenneth Lloyd of Kelowna, ballet adjudicator and a former teacher of Mr. Foley. Miss Lloyd deemed the dance a "very poor performance." Not without some friendly malice, Miss Lloyd socked it to Mr. Foley in the same manner he had been dishing it out to young students during the week. "Stand up straight," she ordered. Then she zapped him in the stomach, smashed him in the back. Mr. Foley began to crumple. In a dry, witty adjudication which kept the Yates filled with laughter, Miss Lloyd decided there hadn't been a thing right about Mr. Foley's performance. In fact, it was so bad, all it merited was a dismal 47. WINTER COATS FUR TRIMS, UNTRIMS, VELOURS. Broken sizes and colors. Reg. to 129.95 PANTS Wools, Fortrels, Crimps, Nylons. REG.
