Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 27, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 - THIItTHBRIDOI HIRAID - Saturday, Mare* 27, Wl-- �-- New ideas suggested for Lethbridge theatre By HERB JOHNSON Herald Staff Writer Does Lethbridge have room for more experimental, innovative theatre? Alfie Scopp, actor, producer and writer, feels the local theatrical scene is healthy enough that the time may be ripe for  move toward more adventurous works. Mr. Scopp, in town to gather background material for a CBC program on Theatre Canada, said he was "most impressed by the fantastic support from the community and the spirit of local theatre." Because Lethbridge audiences were obviously accustomed to attending the theatre and looked upon it as an enjoyable experience, the time may be right, he said, for  smaller theatrical group to experiment with more modern works. He made it quite clear that he had Utile patience with groups that insisted on staging more difficult modern plays before the audiences had learned to appreciate the "safe" productions. At the same time, he said, there should be a chance for people to. see works by such writers as Becket and Ionesco once the initial groundwork had been done, as it obviously bad here in Lethbridge. He compared the situation to that in Edmonton, where the Citadel Theatre had, through good management, built up a faithful audience that was ready to aceenpt something other than the standard traditional productions. Youths may have job chance through new federal plan Lethbridge young people looking for summer Jobs have a chance to come up with their own projects through the federal government's Opportunities for Youth program. Application forms for the program are available through the Canada Manpower Centre and department of the secretary of state, 130 Slater Street, Ottawa. The program encourages the active participates of a wide variety of people. The emphasis is on Jobs and activities for students continuing their education beyond the secondary level, but other young people are not excluded. Both established tions and groups set up specially for an Opportunities for Youth project are eligible. Criteria for selecting approved projects include: the number of jobs created, the number of people who might benefit or take part, and the creation of new services, programs or activities. Typical projects would involve such things as urban redevelopment, clean - up campaigns, community research projects and pollution probes. Groups planning on submitting a project for approval must prepare their budget for the entire program. No money will be paid out for / capital costs or for major equipment or facilities. Sound of Music held over A performance of The Sound of Music has been scheduled for Sunday at 8 p.m. in the Yates Memorial Centre. The extra show by students at Winston Churchill High School was scheduled as a result of "excellent response VZL..

She is 12-year-old Joyce Wong, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C. Hong Wong of 170115th Ave. S. The answer to her question: "How big is a living cell," will appear in Saturday's edition of The Herald in the Ask Andy column. Joyce has been awarded a World Book Atlas for her ques tion. . There will always be room for the "old fashioned" kind of play, he said. Even though this type of production seemed to be something of a dying form in recent years, the "simple, good" stories will always have an audience, he said. As an example he pointed to Fiddler on the Roof, the movie version of which he had just finished acting in. He had high hopes for the esthetic quality of the movie, produced and directed by Canadian Norman Jewison, although he noted that the film's success was now in the hands of the people in the editing room. It was his understanding, he said, that live productions of the play were to stop when me movie was released in November and that the Lethbridge Musical Theatre production next fall may be the only one in North America. Mr. Scopp's more Immediate interest was the Playgoers of Lethbridge production of Fings Ain't What They Used to Be, which will be part of the Theatre Canada festival in Ottawa in May. Some 25 companies from across Canada have been invited to participate and Mr. Scopp's job is to scout each one and select five or six that may be suitable for a CBC television show on the festival. If the local production were included, there would be three or four minutes of the play plus! some background on the Leth ' bridge theatrical scene. Visiting doctor describes tests of new MS treatment Dr. Peter Seland, resident neurologist with the University Hospital in Edmonton, is part of a three - man research team (Fran) Russell Choir from Saskatchewan sings here About 200 Lethbridgites attended a performance by the 35-voice Caronport, Saskatchewan High School Choir, this I week. ' Sponsored by the Christian Business Men's Committee of Lethbridge, the choir presented choral selections, various solo, trio and group numbers and Christian witness in the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute. The idea of a choir for the high school was evolved in 1946 and the current edition had about 20 new voices added this school year. Metro Liskewich, executive director of the alumni association, said the choir has become a part of all Christian school's activities because sacred music s always played big part | in the fellowship and growth of the students. Carenport has 165 high school students and 260 .Bible school students. The high school is located on the campus of Brier-crest Bible Institue east of i Moose Jaw, Sask. that is testing a new treatment for multiple Sclerosis. In Lethbridge to address the local Multiple Sclerosis Society, Dr. Seland emphasized that the team did not expect to come up with a cure for MS. The preliminary impression of the clinical testing of an anti-lymphocyte serum was that it seemed to reduce the disability that follows an acute attack, he said.

"We havo been Satisfying Customers for Over 60 Years" 325 8th St. S., lethbridge Phone 327-3920 By RIC SW1HART , ' Herald Staff Writer It's not too difficult in the day to day changing world of the space age to become a pioneering force but in the realm of administrative duties for most industries, it is. This point alone gives Francis C. Russell of Lethbridge a distinction shared by few. Mr. Russell is considered by many to be the dean of medical clinic administrators, serving as chairman of the membership and credential committee of the Western Canada section, National Association of Clinic Managers- and as the initial president of the Alberta Association. He was honored, upon his recent retirement as administrator of the Bigelow-Fowler Medical Clinic, with a life membership in the Medical Group Management Association. He started work as a business manager with Drs. Bige-low and Fowler in June, 1939. When the doctors, in 1940, started what has become a medical clinic as we know it today, Mr. Russell became a medical clinic manager. "I've been in this business longer than anyone else in Alberta, as far as I know, and the changes in the business have been tremendous," he said. "I started with bookkeeping, personnel and public relations and general administration for the doctors. "At the time we started using the term clinic, there were four doctors and one girl-Friday. Today, there are 12 doctors, six nurses, a laboratory and an x-ray technician, a part time radiologist and bacteriol- ogist and nine other members of the clinic staff." He said his work in the last few years involved supervising.the increasing staff and coordinating the work between the doctors and the staff for the benefit of the patient. "This is the wonderful thing about a clinic," he said. "The patient is the main thing. The doctors and staff are there co-operating for the patient and his well-being." He said clinics offer patients the benefit of sophisticated equipment. Before tlhe clinic concept came, a patient had to see a doctor on a given day. The next day, he had to go to the hospital for tests. After the necessary waiting period for the diagnosis of the tests, the patient then had to see the doctor again. "With clinics, all this is done in one session in most cases," he said. "The clinic is by far more, convenient for the patient and', it is much easier for the doctors." He said the western part of Canada and the United States have been the real force behind the clinic concept. "Before, everything was on a doctor-patient level. Then family contracts were started. "This was later changed to the Lethbridge Northern Health Services, a plan any- many body could join, which was' run by the doctors." Then there was Medical Services Incorporated. He said the new Alberta Health Plan is the latest stage in the development of health services. He said the National Association of Clinic Managers, later changed to Medical Group Management Association, was formed in 1945. The Alberta Association of Clinic Managers was formed in 1955. "These groups were formed so the clinic managers or administrators could pool their information for the betterment of the clinics." He said the group had 140 clinics in 1945. "Today there are more than 700, with about 30 in the province. "In western Canada and mid-west U.S., clinics are the dominant force in medicine. Down east, most doctors still function m offices in homes or offices downtown. The clinic idea has just not caught on as well."

Police officials report $100 damage in the collision. some indication that it might reduce the frequency of subsequent attacks. Dr. Seland pointed out that one of the problems encountered in the research program was that MS has a spontaneous tendency to wax and wane. It was difficult to tell, he said, it the improvement in a patient's condition was due to treatment or simply the natural course of the disease. The project has been In progress since last April and Dr. Seland said it would be another year before the team would be in a position to accurately assess the results. He added that another problem was lack of funds. The project, which is headed by Dr. T. A. McPherson of the department of immunology, was currently in financial difficulty, he said. The serum, which is being tested on 10 patients, is expensive and the research team was not being funded by a grant from any particular organization. Dr. Seland said there were probably between 40 and 80 MS patients in Lethbridge. Generally speaking, the incidence is about 20 per 10,000 population, be said. Multiple Sclerosis is a chronic disease of the nervous system. It tends to have its onset in persons between the ages of 20 and 40. Although it is extremely variable in its course, it tends to be progressively disabling. There is no known cure.
