Ph. 328-8161 1705 M.M. Drive Ph. 328-7751 Science with a smile served by UK lecturer Science with a smile was served in Lethbridge Friday at the annual Klinck Lectureship meeting of the Agricultural Institute of Canada - Alberta Institute of Agrologists. Dr. C. R. W. Spedding of the Grass land Research Station, Hurley, England, the visiting lecturer, spoke on Bringing the DR. C. R. W. SPEDDING Pieces Together - an ecological approach to agriculture. Using chalkboard, slides and pertinent humor, Dr. pedding defined the differences between the specialist and the ecologist -with emphasis on the values of an ecological approach. The specialist has a narrow focus in his research, dealing only with his particular field. The ecologist has the broader view - considering any research in relation to the entire environment. He said the specialist cannot really evaluate Ms work unless he relates it to other fields. The ecologist has the more comprehensive picture. Dr. Spedding indicated the system used for many years of turning out either "plant" or "animal" scientists might be changed for the better by graduating persons with a broader discipline - some animal science, plant science, economy, mathematics. "We are not producing those HAMILTON'S FLOOR COVERING LTD. COMPLETE CARPET AND LINOLEUM INSTALLATION 909 3rd Ave. S. Ph. 327-5454 who can move around," he said, "there is too much confining to one subject." Dr. Spedding is teaching courses at Reading University which are designed to give graduates an ecological approach to agriculture. In an interview, he said this approach is of special value to a director of a research centre, who must deal with many fields of research and who needs to relate them to each other and to the community. He said the approach leads to more efficient research and a more efficient application of the research to the community. Dr. Spedding, who has four degrees from the University of London and has published 70 scientific papers and two books, will present 14 lectures across Canada. He was chosen for the Dr. L. S. Klinck series, inaugurated in 1966 and named for Dr. Klinck, the first president of the Agricultural Institute of Canada. Two year term for arson, theft John Van Den Hengel, 29, of Lethbridge appeared before Judge A. H. Elford in Lethbridge magistrate's court Friday and was sentenced to a jail term of 15 months and a one year probationary period to follow. He was arrested and charged Feb. 26 in conjunction with a robbery and fire at the Star-lite Motel on Mayor Magrath Drive. He subsequently entered a plea of guilty to charges of arson, theft and possession of a dangerous weapon. Sentencing was delayed pending the results of the neurological examinations. In setting the sentence Judge Elford said it was apparent from the medical reports alcohol was a contributing factor in Van Den Hengel's actions.

"Another significant factor is the time when you entered the motel and set the fire (it was after 1 a.m.). By your ,own story, after you set the fire in the waste basket, you drove your car across the street and parked - you knew you had done something wrong," said the Judge. After passing sentence Judge Elford further recommended Van Den Hengel undergo treatment for his alcohol prob 1 e m while in jail, and if necessary the treatment should continue during the one year probation. The judge further stipulated during the time of his probation Van Den Hengel could not have the control or possession of any fire arm. Red rash? try measles If you're looking a bit spotty these days, it may just be you've come down with an attack of German measles. According to Dr. A. A. Byrne, medical health officer, there are more cases of German measles around this year among adults as well as children, than there have been for the past couple of years. But the disease is relatively mild, the doctor says, and very often people don't know they have it until the spots appear. "Sometimes adults will feel a little off color for a few days before they realize they have measles,' he said, "but children very often don't exhibit any signs of illness at all, they just come out in spots." Dr. Byrne said that people with German measles should stay home for a week and keep away from other people. There is also a slightly higher incidence in red measles this year Dr. Byrne said, but it is nothing like the number of cases that Lethbridge had five years ago when some 600 cases were reported. Dr. Byrne said he had no definite figures on the incidence of German measles in the city at present as so many cases go unreported because of the mildness of the disease. liBEARate Pete Chumik heads new method Telephone canvass for cancer drive A new system is to be used in the business canvass for the annual Cancer Society drive for fund this spring. A telephone canvass will be used, rather than a personal call method. Peter Chumik of Lethbridge, in charge of the business canvass, with an objective of $7,000, said Thursday the system is organized and ready for the start of the drive March 31. He said the system will take less time of both the busines-man and the volunteer worker. It will take 25 to 30 persons to do the work formerly done by about 250 persons. About 800-900 phone calls will be made and some 300-400 letters will be sent out in a combined operation. At two minutes per call, some 15 callers will finish the job in about three hours. The appeal for funds will be made in a brief telephone call, said Mr. Chumik, and an appointment made to have the donation picked up. About 15 workers will make the donation pick ups. "With the co-operation re- ceived in organizing this new system and with the co-operation of the businesmen given in the past, this current drive cannot help but be one of the best ever," said Mr. Chumik. The Lethbridge branch of the Canadian Cancer Society has an over all objective of $44,000 this spring.

PHONE 327-2822 EStt Culture report likely on April 5 A report from city council's cultural affairs committee is expected at the April 5 meeting of council. Alderman C. W. Chichester, chairman of the committee that includes Aldermen Camm Barnes and Vera Ferguson, said the report was the culmination of a lengthy series of meeting with groups in the city that have an interest in cultural activities. The committee started, he said, with a report prepared by Dick Mells, the city's cultural development supervisor. Since this was released, in May of 1970, the committee has been meeting with such groups as Lethbridge Musical Theatre, school boards and the University of Lethbridge to get a cross section of views on the local cultural scene. The final report will include an evaluation of the report by Mr. Mells and the views gathered from the community by the committee. A set of eight conclusions will be discussed with the city administration before being submitted to council, Mr. Chichester said. Socreds postpone nominations A postponement of the scheduled April 2 Social Credit nomination meeting for the Lethbridge East riding has been announced by party officials. No new date has been released for the meeting. The only official candidate so far is Johnny Anderson, retired Lethbridge businessman. Insurance agency co-owner Stan Cox-son has said he intends to seek the nomination. Although party officials are making no announcements until the local executive has discussed the matter, it is speculated that the delay may be related to a third candidate entering the race.

Chris Gibson dies at 83 Chris Gibson, leader of the Lethbridge branch of the Canadian Red Cross Society for many years and the first liaison officer of the John Howard Society in the city, died suddenly at his home Friday, at the age of 83. Mr. Gibson started his work with the Lethbridge branch of Red Cross in 1914 prior to going overseas with the 7th Artillery Brigade. He was the major push for the start of the blood donor clinic system in the city in 1949. His active work with Red e Cross began in earnest in 1929 ' when the depression hit the south. At the Coalhurst mine disaster in 1935 he spent endless hours aiding victims and their families. During the Second World War, he was the chief packer and carpenter for the Lethbridge branch of the Red Cross and he assumed the presidency from Judge J. A. Jackson. Fol-losing this initial term, he was re-elected for numerous terms. When he retired from active Red Cross work in 1955, he was appointed honorary president. In 1943 he retired from the Gait Hospital board after serving 18 consecutive years.
