Lower Level Shopping Mall Lelhbridge, Alberta Phono (403) 326-7411 CHAIRS A review Campbell choir maintains level By PAT ORCHARD The Anne Campbell Sing- ers and the Teen Clefs pre- sented their annual Soring Sing at the Yatcs Memorial Centre Saturday evening. The program was an at- tractive one, beginning with a 'group of classical, reli- gious and folk songs. The religious songs by the composers Monteverdi, Jioi, Kodaly and Dunhlll were sung in a simple, direct and very musical manner, fresh in feeling and warm in per- sonality. O bone Jesu was the high- light of the evening and showed the choir complete- ly at home in music one would have thought outside this age group. LESS SUCCESSFUL The lighter songs by the composers Bright, Gibbs, McMullin and McCauley were less successful, as the choir, though bell-like, lack- ed a certain depth of timbrs and range of dynamics. Diction, for the clarity ol which these singers are just- ly famous, became a bit of a problem in the French num- ber Je sais Wen quelque as it was painfully anglicized. However, their clarity and blend deserved the highest commendation. The Canadian folk songs The Little Chinook, The Bro- ken Hing, An Eskimo Lulla- by and My Bark Canoe were a real display of originality, and the ethereal pianissimo in My Bark Canoe was haunlingly beautiful. SPECIAL PRAISE A special word of praise to all the soloists and ac- companists, as I enjoyed each one of them, and a spe- cial word of warning' to the choir as their pilch was precarious throughout the evening. The second half of the pro- gram opened wiih a per- formance by the Foster Quintet, comprised of Mrs. Foster Peggy (clar- Nancy .Perry ('cello) and Susan They played numbers by Handel, Zelska and Scarlat- ti. The quintet was an ex- cellent ensemble in terms of matched tones, intonation and internal balance. Their rhythms were firm and live- ly, and the players quite re- sponsive to one another. GREAT POTENTIAL. Although the boat rocked a bit alarmingly in the Scar- latti number, they justified themselves in the Handel and Zelska with some sensi- tive playing, and managed to produce a pleasant sound. This ensemble shows great potential, and should be en- couraged to perform again. The girls went on to per- form songs from various musical shows. This review- er deplored the sheer lack of weight in these numbers, as the music was nicely, if blandly, sung. A touch more of involvement would not have come amiss as the singers were unable to vary their program by vocal means alone. The voices were becoming a little tired, a little strained, and a lew of these numbers showed signs of uncertainty and un- der-preparation. DISCIPLINE I must comment on the discipline of the choir, and there can be no doubt that the credit for that must go to Mrs. Campbell, its found- er and director. However, it is also paid for with a cer- tain loss of spontaneity, which I found myself re- gretting more in the musi- cal numbers, than in the first group of songs. Nevertheless, Mrs. Camp- bell conducted the choir in telligently, and like any group attached to a smal city, its student perspnne changes and fluctuates, ye their standard has alway been of the highest level. Judging from Saturday night's performance, the enthusiasm with whic] the audience received it this choir should go on t win Lethbridge a few mor awards. Gov't plans new policy for sport By RICHARD BURKE Herald Staff Writer A federal program to up- grade and expand existing and planned athletic facilities to in- ternational standards was an- nounced at the University of Lethbridge athletic awards banquet Saturday. Marc Lalonde, minister of na- tional health and welfare, out- lined for about 300 persons at the banquet the future direc- Resting place This car ended up wrapped around this power pole after it bounced a parked car at 13lh St. N. in the 1400 block. The car, driven by 19-year-old Daniel Joseph Mor- neault, of Kirkland Lake, Ont., was southbound on 13th St. when it was in collision with a parked car belonging to John Gerald Burgwall, of 1201 18th St. N. The Burg- wait car was knocked about 45 feel, while the Morneoult car skidded in a half cj-cle and hit this pole. Robert Kosy, Jr., 22, of Kirkland Lake, a passenger in the Morneault vehicle, was treated and released at SL Michael's General Hospital. Damage is estimated at At the legislature Will Schmidt resist the push? tion the federal government will take in supporting ama- teur sports and mentioned the new program as part of that policy. Specialized training centres and exercise idling facilities can be looked for across the country as well if the program is found to be feasible, Mr. La- londe said. The kind of facilities being considered point to the change in emphasis Ottawa will be put- ting on amateur sports in the next few years. "Over the next three Mr. Lalonde said, "we are go- ing to commit a much larger proportion our resources to promoting fitness and partici- pation" rather than competitive, sports. The change is already being seen in the budget for amateur sports this year which shows a 60 per cent increase over 1972. ister loured several o( the fa- cilities in Southern Alberta for the 1975 Canada Winter Games including West Castle ski re- sort where he "skied the mile in five minutes." Two helicopters took Mr. La- londe and local representatives of the Winter Games Society and the press to Pincher Creek, Fort Macleod and Standoff be- fore returning to Lethbridge. At the banquet, Mr. Lalonde said he witnessed the "commu- nity involvement" which "I'm sure convinced the site selec- tion comnu'ttee to conclule that Lethbridge was the best choice for the Games. After a day here, I'm more than con- vinced they made the right choice." He added, "We can get the finest Winter Games we've ever had but there's still a lot of work to do enthusiasm is not enough." The minister gave the South- ern Alberta Winter Games So- ciety a cheque for at the banquet. By GREG MclNTYRE EDMONTON Pity poor Werner Schmidt pushed by friends ajid enemies alike to step into the battle. A Tory MLA said last week that if the Social Credit party leader does not contest the soon to he announced Calgary Foothills byeleclion, the Conservatives will be pleased at the show of Soc- red timidity. On the other hand, if Mr. Schmidt runs and loses, the Conservatives will be even happier. So as Mr. Schmidt knows only too well, there's only Ph. 328-037J 2716 12 Ave. S.

There were 122 minor disas- ers, mostly house fires, in 87 ocations, and assistance was iven 'to 569 persons at a cost In 1972, the 25th anniversary f the Red Cross blood trans- usion service in Canada, 77 units of blood were collect- in this division. Hospitals verc issued units of which units were admin- stered to patients. The society parformed re nntal and post natal screening tests, about more than in 1971. Red Cross water safety ser- vice award winners numbered There were pu- )ils enrolled in the water safely (raining program in There were also enroll- ed in the leadership training >rogram, which concentrates on the training of leaders, in- structors anci examiners. Enrolment in the Red Cross youth program in 1972 showed an increase of up to 80 per cent in some areas. Some 407 schools were enrolled with SM members actively working in the program. Junior and senior high school students were involved mostly in community service work in 1972. Voluntary work in nurs- ing homes and hospitals in- volve n large number of young adults. Student activities in- cluded working with senior cit- izens, assisting at blood donor clinics, running bingo games for veterans, and assisting with handicapped swimming pro- grams. About Grade 9 students throughout the province were given training in a health ser- vices course. These young peo- ple work in hospitals, auxiliary hospitals and nursing homes. one way to win run and capture the seat in the by- election. Unfortunately even that will be perilous. With a seat in.the legisla- ture, the freshman MLA will be expected to assume the leadership of the 24 member S o c r e d caucus. Former health minister Jim Hender- son is so far performing that task very well thank you. There are sure to be rum- bles of discontent and the next annual meeting of the party would be a very in- teresting contest to see whether Mr. Henderson or Mr. Schmidt were chosen to run things. Which ever way he turns is anguish. As he confessed last week he'd like to just go off in a quiet corner somewhere and have a nice long think. It was an amusing if illogi- cal performance during which Lethbridge city coun- cil vetoed television coverage of. city council meetings re- cently. The tongue-in-cheek antics of aldermen Vera Ferguson and V a u g h a n Hembroff made good copy but ob- scured the real council was frightened that a large segment of the elec- torate might see their rep- resentatives in action on the tube. Unfortunately, our munic- hecd has promised a state- ment about conflict of inter- est sometime this spring. In an attempt to find out the attitudes of Alberta MLAs to disclosure of their business interests, The Her- ald circulated a question- naire asking: (A) Would you file with the clerk of the legislature for public inspection a com- plete list of property owned or held by you, your spouse or immediate family? (B) Would you disclose your holdings in public and private companies, and your sources of income? (C) Would you reveal it DOW to The Herald? The first reaction was a note from Premier Loug- heed. The premier said in 36 years of Social Credit gov- ernment disclosures of this kind have never been made and since Hie premier is to make a statement on the is- sue "surely our members are entitled to hear the pre- mier's .position before an- swering such a survey." Not a single Tory replied. Verbally, however, two ministers Provincial Trea- surer Gordon Miniely and Consumer Affairs Minister ipal representatives haven't grasped that television is a fact of modern life. When the Alberta legisla- ture was opened to television last year, there was an ini- tial period of playing to the cameras, but these amateur theatrics soon died down and the electronic media were accepted as normal partici- pants in government affairs. Television footage of de- balc in the legislature has added considerably to news coverage, giving the public a much better idea of what government is up to. It's to be hoped CJOC-TV will try again and get a more reasonable considera- tion by some of the nervous nellies on council. In an attempt to prevent politicians using their offices for personal gain, regulations are being legislated across the country. The British Columbia gov- ernment has introduced leg- islation requiring all elected officials school trustees, municipal councillors, MLAs publicly disclose busi- ness interests twice a year. In Ontario, cabinet minis- ters are required to declare their Interests in business and property and recently civil servants were asked to do tie same. In Alberta, Premier Loug- Public school official resigns The director of school ser- vices for the Lethbridge Public Board has tendered his resig- nation to accept an Appoint- ment to the University of Leth- bridge. Dr. R. S. (Bob) Gall will be- come an associate professor of education with responsibility for educational psychology, special education and early childhood education. He will leave the public sys- etm June 30 after nearly 10 years of service to local trus- tees. "I am proud to suggest the Lethbridge School District No. 51 is the finest educational au- thority in the province. I hope I have been able to contribute in some small way to this Dr. Gall writes in his letter of resignation. Bob Dowling said they fa- vored regulations requiring the disclosure of business in- terests of. politicians. One minister Lands and For- ests Minister Allan Warrack on the grounds that his family is already sufficiently imposed upon. Of the 2fi opposition MLAs, 16 replied to the question- naire 13 said yes, they'd disclose their interest, and three said no. The yes replies were: Jolm Anderson (Lethbridge Dan Bouvier (Lac La Biche Walter Buck (Clover Leighton Buckwell Bob Clark (Olds Art Dixon (Calgary Charles Drain (Pincher Jim Hen- derson Albert Ludwig (Calgory Mountain Doug Miller (Taber Ralph So- renson (Sedgewick Corona- Roy Wilson (Calgary Bow) and Bill Wyse (Med- icine The no replies were: Den-, nis Barton (Lesser Slave Dick Gruenwald (Lethbridge West) and Ted Hinman Some comments: Mr. Henderson, the Soared house leader, wrote adopted as policy by all MLAs or required by law." Mr. Hinman, a former Soc- red provincial treasurer, said "I would be prepared to de- clare, whenever appropriate, any interests I have which may prejudice my objectiv- ity in commenting on or vot- ing on proposals in the leg- islature." The lively Mr. Ludwig re- sponded with "yes but if you find out how little I own, you might offer me a free subscription to the Lefh- bridge Herald." Spending on the fitness and ama- teur sports program will rise 125 per cent to million by 1975-76, the minister said. Competitive sports will not be neglected, however, with the federal government's financial input doubling in the next three years, Mr. Lalonde said. This year, between and SI million will spent to improve coacliing in Canada, he said. The program will also feel some administrative changes. An assistant deputy minister for fitness and amateur sports will be appointed in the near future from among applicants from across the country. The assistant deputy minister will be responsible for Sports Can- ada and Recreation Canada. The program itself will be moved from the welfare side of the department to the health side to "direct a greater share of our health resources to in- fluencing Canadians to adopt a way of life free of destructive habits such as smoking and lack of physical Mr. Lalonde said.

Lethbridge registered a snowfall of one half inch, while Pincher Creek experienc- ed three to four inches of snow. ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC Bids. 222 5th SI. S.
