Man remaiided A 48-year-old Lethbridge man pleaded not guilty Wednesday provincial court of making phone calls threatening death, and was remanded to April 18 for trial.

A review High school's Oklahoma opens on Fates stage Ado and Ali WCH5 students Gay Plomp (Ado Annie) and Albert Azzora (Ali Hakim) Labor council president, vice-president resign The newly elected president and vice president of the Lethbridge and District Labor Council have resigned. Fifteen council members at- tending the regular monthly meeting were told Wednesday that Ted Scheurkogel, presi- dent and Wayne Doolittle, vice- president had indicated they were resigning for different reasons. Mr. Schcurkogel is resigning for personal reasons and Mr. Doolittle is resigning because he has left his employment and would no longer be associated with the labor movement. The council deferred accep- tance of the resignations be- cause Mr. Doolittle failed to appear at the meeting with the letters of resignation. It was decided an election of president and vice president will be held at the next regular meeting of the council. The problem of who would sign the cheques to pay labor council bills, now that both se- nior officials had decided to re- sign, was one of the deciding factors in not accepting the resignations. It was suggested Mi. Schcur- kogel would continue to act as the signing authority until a new president and vice presi- dent are elected. Minor hockey needs two more ice arenas By ANDY OGLE Herald Staff Writer Two more artificial ice arenas are needed in the ci'.y, one by next season to maintain minor hockey programs, the Lelhbrictge Minor Hockey Asso- ciation says.

"We're not suggesting anoth- er Henderson Arena or even an Adams Ice arena, association president Leo Harold told the committee. "We're proposing a shell type rink with only two rows of seats, a storage room and four dress- ing rooms and a standard size ice sheet." Mr. Harold said some 850 ays on 50 hockey teams man- jed to get through an accept- >le season this year using ev- available hour of ice time .ade available by the commu- ty services department and in eighboring towns. He said the association esti- ;ated boys on at least teams will be playing next ear and the association will be me 91 hours per week short of ecessary ice lime. Mr. Harold added that the addition of the Sportsplex ice arena would probably not make fluch difference to minor hock- y because of the anticipated igh cost of renting the facil- y. Another spokesman for the association said later it was un- erstood the Sportsplex arena ould cost an hour to rent gainst for other facilities. "Nobody's going to be moving rom Henderson to the Sports- lex at those he said. It'll be out of the question for minor hockey." Mr. Harold suggested that a rogram involving boys relatively important, ant lat additional arenas coulc Iso be used for recreationa kating and by other hockey roups. The advisory committee agreed and passed a resolution ecommending that council con- ider in its budget deliberations luilding a double arena utiliz ng a common power plant, sto- 'age and dressing rooms, with me of the arenas to be bull' lest year. While no precise figures were available, it was estimated a he meeting that an arena o quonset or cinder block con stniction could be built fo In other business Wednesday tiie advisory committee de cided to defer a request by th Chinook Pensioners and Scnio Citizens Organization that th city buy the Central Church Christ building on llth St. S. t provide a handicraft centre I he operated by the pensioner. The organization, which ha 250 members, is seeking a Ne Horizons federal grant to nir the crafts program, main pu pose of which is occupationa therapy, and wants the churc building which is available fo its centre. Although tho organization prevented from borrowin money by Its national consliti lion, it would like to be able buy back the building from th city on a 15 or 20-year leas arrangement. The advisory committee while agreeing the aim of th crafts program was a good on felt that the organization shou look into use of alternatlv buildings such as the Gilbe Pafcrson School which is bcin made into a community school. Anoiher submission received by the committee from Family Recreational Services was ta- bled for more information. Family Recreational Services offered in tho submission to build and operate a recreation- al complex on tire west side in- cluding an IB-hole and nine-hole golf course, tennis courts, a swimming pool and clubhouse facilities at a cost of about one nt per day per taxpayer. By LVNNE VAN LITVEN I have the same problem as Ado Annie: I cain't say no. I can't say there were no flaws in Winston Churchill High Seliools per- formance of "Oklahoma" at the Yates Memorial Centre on Wednesday evening. But then, neither can I say the production was totally bereft of redeeming qualities. Even in the most profes- sional of companies, opening night is a trying time for all concerned. And perhaps the east of "Oklahoma" tried a bit loo hard. Although the production boasted some fine moments, the overall per- formance was somewhat un- even, the mood of the musi- cal a bit too strained. The cast comprising large numbers of WCHS stu- dents on and off-stage has undertaken a gargan- tuan task in tlie staging of The students and staff at WCHS have ob- viously assumed their roles with prodigious amounts of enthusiasm, dedication and hard work. For they are to be praised. And yet, the musical does not come across quite as well as it should. One hopes subsequent per- formances will iron out some of the quirks in evidence Wednesday, to bring the pre- sentation nearer to its true entertainment potential. JITTERS Aside from opening night jitters which the prob- able cause of a few muffed lines and mumbled lyrics, WCHS's "Oklahoma" could benefit from more forceful singing by some of the princi- pals, less of a feeling of poor- ly-organized chaos in some of the group dance numbers and fewer ear-piercing "whoopees" and "yippees" by the entire company. Gusto is fine, but let's not force the is- sue. Wednesday's performance was also disconcerting in that one sensed an unconscious competition between the soft- er-voiced load singers' solo numbers and the orchestra. )n most cases, the orchestra emerged victorious. TALEOT SHOWS Directed by Li! Larter and produced by Mich Fors'cr, "Oklahoma" is a vehicle for the talents of severs! promis- ing young actresses and ac- tors. Dennis DeGroots' por- trayal of Curly, the young cowboy hero of the musical was vary good indeed. Mr. DeGrool has both a strong and melodious singing voice and a convincing way with his lines. Vying with Dennis DeGroot for tlie position of "best ac- tor of the night" was Albsrt Azzara in the role of Ali Hakim, the flirtatious Persian peddlar. Mr. Azzara display- ed a fltanboyent and unabash- ed flair for comic acting. He elicited the audience's laughter merely by walking on stage, by a phrase or a gesture. His rendition of the number "It's a Scandal! It's an Outrage" was particularly Gay Plomp was convincing as a charmingly scatter- brained and irrepressible Ado Annie. Her "I Cain't Say No" number was well-execut- ed, although one might wish she had pranced and flounced her skirls just a trifle less. WCHS is to be congratulat- ed for such an ambitious pro- ject as this musical and for the worthwhile learning situa- tion not to mention the en- tertainment: Wednesday's stu- dent-night performance play- ed to a packed house, all tick- ets were sold out. thus pro- vided for sludents. It has its weaknesses, "Oklahoma" is definitely" worth seeing. continue tonight through urday at the Yates. time is 0 p.m. A G 0 BERTA Public Meeting FRIDAY, MARCH 30th at A.M. in the LETHBRIDGE COMMUNITY COLLEGE SCIENCE BUILDING, ROOM 204 This is your opportunity to meet Chairman John Channon and learn what the Alberta Grain Commission is doing and how it can help you.
