Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 31, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, March 91,197} - THE lETHBRIDGI HfRAlD - 19 New, enlarged quarters for Anglo Distributors Anglo Distributors, the retail division of Kitson's Wholesale, opens its doors to the public Thursday in enlarged quarters. Anglo has spent about $50,-000 renovating the former Mac-leod's building on 6th St., opposite the downtown Car Park. The 5,000 square feet of display area triples the space formerly occupied by Anglo. Former premises will be used by Kitson's Wholesale for tobacco, confection and drug wholesaling to merchants only. Anglo Distributors Stereo and Photographic Shop will remain in its present premises at 419 Sth St. S. The shop is southern Alberta's only full - line fully-franchised distributor of Sony products, dealing directly with General Distributors, exclusive Sony representatives for Canada. Louis Kohn, president of Kit-son's, was one of a group who purchased Kitson's in 1959. In 1961 he bought out Harry Veiner of Medicine Hat and other shareholders and moved in to take over management. Shortly after he conceived the idea of selling to groups, societies, clubs, professions, large firms and farmers and ranchers belonging to various associations, co-ops and pools. Anglo Distributors came into being, The number of cardholders has grown to between 15,000 and 20,000, Mr. Kohn said in an interview, and hundreds of new members are coming in each month at no cost to the customer. "Anglo's policy has been to sell at minimum prices daily. Our prices are constant. We sell most well - known branded lines available, under full warranty and we stand behind our product. "Due to the tremendous response and repeat business, the former premises became too small and we had to expand to the more spacious store. "The same policy will be maintained of selling at the lowest prices but with the anticipated increased volume we expect to be able to buy even better and will strive to give members even better values and prices than in the past. "Our policy of 'If we can't sell it for less we won't sell it' will continue." Mr. Kohn said Anglo anticipates putting out a catalogue in the near future for rural members. Anglo's line of electronics, cameras and photographic equipment, small housewares, diamonds, jewellery, watches, small electrical appliances, luggage and other giftware, is to be expanded in the new store to include toys, sporting goods and camping equipment. Anglo will be offering $1,000 in prizes during the three-day opening including a portable color TV set. Many items will be offered for sale at less than wholesale prices for the opening. Mr. Kohn spent the first 15 years of his life on a farm south of Suffield. From 1927 to 1937 he helped his father run a general store at Suffield. During this time he was also a fur buyer in the area. In 1937 he and his wife Sophie moved to Medicine Hat and went into the ladies' wear business. After 20 years in that business they sold out the two shops and Mr. Kohn did nothing for the next five years "which were the worst in my life." They took over Kitson's, set up Anglo, and two years ago son Garry came into the business to run the stereo - tape recorder - photographic shop. Battling Whitton takes on youth CHARLOTTE WHITTON . . Canada's fallacy Contribute $50,000 UNITED NATIONS (Reuter) - Japan announced Tuesday a contribution of $50,000 toward the upkeep of the United Na-tions's peace forces in Cyprus. WINDSOR, Ont. (CP) -Charlotte Whitton, the fiery, 75-year old political battler who has been five times the mayor of Ottawa and is still an alderman there, took on the country's youth as guest speaker at the Canadian Club. Miss Whitton attacked what she described as Canada's "most misleading fallacy today: the notion that half the population of this country is under 25 years old." "This sell-out of the 60s to the youth-cult is the greatest of Canada's fallacies," she said. "We older people have been too easy; we've taken the souped-up publicity and we've taken it in the neck." Canada had a population of about 21 million and it did not divide into clear-cut blobs. Miss Whitton said the group between 25 and 64 carry the nation, with the heaviest taxes and work load. "Of the population under 25, there are seven million who range from babes in arms to age 14. There are about one and a half million from 15 to 19 and one and two-thirds million from 20 to 24." OVER-25S ANXIOUS Miss Whitton said the middle group over 25 was becoming anxious and worried about the state of things. "Having succeeded in reducing the infant mortality rate and lengthening life expectancy we now don't know what to do. We are providing more and more human equipped for use but we are increasingly less able to come up with something for them to do. "We are retiring people into subsidized idleness. We are allowing industrial and tech- nological research render more and more human effort obsolete. We seem to be heading for a lay-off of life at age 40. "We are extending education and training into the late 20s and even the 30s and then we are laying people off at age 40. But we older people-most of us have had, say, 40 years of experiencing life, against only a promise to Canada to come from the youth group. "The sell-out has not only been to ourselves but it's been a sell-out of youth itself. The present is cut out of the cloth of the past. We are not suffered to dissipate or waste our experience. It is our job to criticize and improve things." Miss Whitton said that today's youth do not represent something that has not been seen before. "We haven't known what to do with our youth. We have been selling-out in the face of technological developments. It's time for people who have accumulated a lifetime of liv-ir"* to put their argument forcibly. "it's time for maturity and age to make a stand and say: so far and no further." Registrations down at Uaiui CALGARY (CP) - Attendance at Banff National Park was down during the first three months of this year compared with 1970, park superintendent S. F. Kun announced today. To March 28, 124,529 vehicles and 335,050 visitors entered the park compared with 130,481 vehicles and 357,620 visitors in 1970. | To serve you better-we have moved to new larger premises 1 |J?PECTAC Power rate bid called 'gauging9 EDMONTON (CP) - A move by Calgary Power to increase rates would be "unjustified," says Grant Notley, Alberta New Democratic party leader. Mr. Notley said Calgary Power, with other private util� ities firms, wants to "gouge" increased profits for them* selves. "This is certainly not unexpected," he said, "but consumers should remember that only a little more than a year ago Canadian and Northl and Utilities applied successfully for a rate increase." Mr. Notley said, "I find It hard to understand the justification in view of the fact that Calgary Power's net income rose $1.1 million to $11.7 million, an increase of 10 per cent over 1969s figures." Threatened rate incre a s e s "underlines the importance of moving toward public ownership of private utilities in the province." Magnets take . their name from the ancient Greek city of Magnesia, where lodestone was first discovered.
