Mr Smith said that for Tuesday, May 5, 1970 r gently N 1 Associat association to do a proper job in promoting Lethbridge and south Alberta as a tourist centre in 1970, the money must come before the end of the month. He told council the association did not receive any Ion sidiary grants from the city other than the for 1969 and out of this grant the city was paid more man for rent of an office in the city hall annex. Alderman Steve Kotch said Frank Smith, manager of TCASA, and Mrs. Kitty Dun-lop, TCASA secretary, have worked the past six weeks without pay, with the bank balance for the association only about Council took into consideration that TCASA was in the process of paying off a debt incurred by the past two organizations that had the job of promoting Lethbridge. The majority of the debt, about is owed to Lethbridge businessmen, and Mr. Smith believes TCASA will finish 1970 debt-free. Mr. Smith said TCASA expects an increase of 30 per cent in the tourist trade for southern Alberta in 1970. "For every tourist dollar spent, is added to the Gross National Product of Western he said. He added that in 1969 Lethbridge received from conventions and this sum is already surpassed this year with slated for the 1D70 season. "Given adequate finances, this figure can easily be increased he said. "With figures like these, the association can make a strong representation to the (Alberta) minister of industry and tourism, Ray Ratzlaff, for more government support." He added the tourist industry was the largest dollar earner for Alberta in 1969. With TCASA's tourist zone approximating the trading area for Lethbridge, the city would benefit from any advertising done by the association. He said some of the expenses incurred by the association are for preparation of convention centre advertisements and a folder listing locations and services Lethbridge can provide for the U1C HEAD R.

Symphon Are By HENRY WAACK The concert by the Leth-bridge Symphony Orchestra and Chorus at the Yates Memorial Centre Monday night provided many musical moments, but for the most part the performance of both groups fell far short of their potential. The program consisted of three motets, The Hymn Of Praise by Mendelssohn, Jesu, Priceless Treasure by Bach and Psalm 150 by Sehutz. The chorus was accompanied by the orchestra in the Mfendel-ssohn work, with Wilf Wool-house conducting both groups. The chorus gave us some pleasant sound, but the balance between orchestra and chorus made the words hardly distinguishable. There was some good work in the woodwinds, but generally the orchestra proved too powerful for the singers. Throughout the performance there was a struggle for rhythmic unity and near the Motets pointing there were a few moments when the two groups became completely disjointed. Soloist Anne Rogers, a newcomer to Lethbridge has a pleasing soprano voice, but encountered intonation problems in the upper register, possibly because of the difficulty in penetrating through the orchestra. Another soloist, tenor Walter Goerzen, gave a well controlled performance. His fine tenor voice cut through the orchestra like a beacon in the night. His was a very musical performance and certainly 'the highlight of the evening. A duet by Evelyn Mills and Mary Thomson was capably sung, but again most of the words were lost. The Bach motet fared considerably better. This was conducted by Thomas Layers, with Mr. Woolhouse at the oigan. There was a much more satisfactory balance here. The final motet by Sehutz was conducted by Thomas Lavers, with Mrs. Rogers at the organ, accompanied 6y an eight member brass choir. This generally had more style and feeling. There was some good work from the brass, particularly the trombones. There was some rhythmic instability, but over all this was1 the most satisfying of the three Give It was announced today that Mayor Andy Anderson, has made a donation to the Friends of the University of Lethbridge. The announcement, was made by Leo Singer, chairman of the Friend's board of directors. Mr. Singer pointed out that Mayor Anderson has shown much more than an official interest in the development of the university, having devoted many hours of his own time to Salary on the Board of Governors and the Senate. Mayor Anderson has asked that the money be used to assist students in need of To Fund cial assistance. The represents the' total increment to the mayor's salary for this year.
