Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 6, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 WE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, May 1970- White Heather Scores Again By MARGARET LUCKHUItST Herald Staff Writer The White Heather concert direct from Bonnie Scotland, Tuesday night delighted a capacity audience in the Capi- lol Theatre with its three-hour presentation of comedy and Sponsored twice annually by the Scots Committee of St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church, this show can be considered a tradition, in Lethbridge. The toe-tapping rhythm of familiar reels, plus the pensive lilt of old highland songs, quickly captured the audience so that even the non-Scottish could almost see the mist and smell the heather. Setting the mood for the eve- ning, the Alexander Stewart Legion Pipe Band skirled through several old favorites School Board Readies Brief A proposed submission to the Worth Commission and the ap- pointment of one of three new eo-ordinators with the school system were discussed at last night's closed meeting of the Lethbridge Public School Board. School super intendent Dr. p. P. Larson says most of the five-hour session was taken up with making changes and addi- tions to the first draft of the submission to the Worth Com- mission. Additional alterations will be discussed at a meeting Thursday morning of the com- mittee responsible for the pre- aration of the brief. and introduced the master of ceremonies Andy Stewart, known widely for his recording "A Scottish Soldier." Looking like a short Johnny Carson, Andy jokes, jigs and mimes his way through a col- lage of lively entertainment. One of the funniest numbers was presented by Andy doing n take-off on Campbellltown Road as might be sung by Louis Armstrong, Johnny Cash, Tiny Tim and Al Jolson. Any of these artists in kilts tugged at one's imagination. Accordianist Jimmy Blue led the audience through a number of old Scottish dances with a verve that had the old-timers and the groovy set swaying in their seats. Supi'aiiG Jennifer Shaw de- lighted the audience with selec- tions from Brigadoon and other semi classics. Tenor Joe McBride, on his first trip with the group, has a large voice which did justice to Songs of the Clyde and old Gaelic tunes. A highlight of the evening was Hon Dale, Mr. Versatility himself. Whether he was roar- ing around the stage blasting on a trombone or chattering his way through a few naughty stories, he managed to keep the audience chuckling. At one point someone off- stage handed him a bundle of junk of feathers and rags which looked suspiciously like a dead sea bird, but which turned out to be a dead bagpipe instead. He proceeded to render artifi- cial respiration, reviving the thing and blowing out an un- Scottish version of Yankee Doodle. It .was announced at the end of the program that the group would be back September 22. Work Proceeding On Game Farm The building of the Stewart Game Farm south of Leth- bridge is proceeding smoothly, Dr. C. D. Stewart, who is build- ing the farm as a private proj- let, said Wednesday. Dr. Stewart, president of the Lethbridge Community Col- lage, said about one half of the fence posts have been put in. The fencing wire is on its way from Toronto and the fence should be completed by the end of May. Completion of the fence Is Me of the first things that must be done; a licence for the farm cannot be obtained until it is finished. Stocking of the farm will be lone initially with animals na- to western Canada. Dr. Stewart says he feels the farm should be a reflection of the area that it serves. He will, however, branch out later and import some animals from other countries. As a person who has been involved in the fight against pollution for some years, Dr. Stewart intends to bar auto- mobiles from the farm. Only a tractor and service track will be allowed info the actual farm; other vehicles will re- main in the parking lot. Signs will also be erected urging people to keep the area free from pollution. Opening date for the farm, which wUl have about 40 pairs of animals at the start, has been set for mid July; MILLION SAFE MILES Sid Healy, left. Alberta driver examiner in charge of the Lethbridge area, a million mile driver's award from Lethbridge MLA Jack Lander- you. This was the first such award ever givsn in Lethbridge, issued jointly by Al- berta Motor Association and the Alberta department of highways. (There have been only five others issued in Alberta.) To qualify for the award, a person must have driven a verified one million miles, with no convictions or vehicle accidents. It's the equivalent of 40 trips aroum the circumference of the earth. Denial Of Physical Existence Theme Of Religious Lecture By JOAN BOWMAN Herald Staff Writer Man's flesh has only the ap- pearance of reality, and. moral weakness produces and perpet- uates a belief in physical dis- ease, according to Harold Rog- ers, a member of the Christian Science board of lectureship. Mr. Rogers speaking Tues- day night to about 60 persons in St. Augustine's Parish Hall, said since God is a spirit and man is made in God's image, man must be spirit. "There is only a spiritual uni- verse. How can there be an op- posite or external A denial of physical ex- istence, and a belief in the law and love of God at once brings man into harmony with his fel- low man, Mr. Rogers said. Appointed to the lectureship board in Boston in 1968, he stated all disease stems from mental and emotional failings. He said he was himself heal- ed by belief in the Chris- tian Science philosophy faith. Following an automobile acci- dent, he was out of school for more than a year with three ruptured ligaments in his knee. He could barely walk. A friend told him about Christian Science and five days after he started studying it, he was able to walk five miles. "Six months later I could run." Another incident involved young man who left the church because of a disagreement among church members and an apparent injustice to one of them. The man later found the low- er portion of his face was changing and he was losing his voice. A doctor told him he had cancer. The man left town and "hid himself away in a hotel." After re-consulting the scriptures, he realized "he had allowd himself to dwell on human personali- ties." "He saw that the true family (of man) is not based on pri- vate minds. In the true family, the sons and daughters of God have one mind." Mr. Rogers said the man's voice was restored and his face took on its former appearance. "Hatred had manifested itself in cancer.'

(Next lo Lethbridgo Locker and Seafoods) Jury Rules Death From Asphyxiation A coroner's jury in Pincher Creek Tuesday ruled 4he March 23 death of Colleen Bad Eagle, 22, of Brocket, was caused by asphyxiation and attached no blame to anyone. Tho pathologis' in the case was Dr. A. R. Bainborough of tathbridge. His report indicated that while death was attributed to asphyx i a t i o n, no specific cause for the asphyxiation could I was wrong with her or com- be determined. Miss Bad Eagle was found dead in RCMP police cells in Pincher Creek on the morning of March 23. When arrested and placed hi custody the previous evening on a charge of causing a distur- bance, Miss Bad Eagle didn't give any indication anything plain of being ill. Provincial coroner Dr. M. M. Cantor of Edmonton presided at CHEAPER TO STAY Zanzibar has levied a tax on anyone who marries an island woman and tries to take her away. As to racial and political dif- ferences, since man is 100 per cent spiritual and since God does net recognize mortal flesh, all men are the same be- fore God and before each other. In a latter interview, Mr. Rogers said that belief in God, Divine Love, DMne Mind, de- stroy mental errors that shackle people. "Belief is a spiritual therapy." As to some of the problems of war which is gripping so many Americans, he said Christians Science followers "can be paci- fists, but sometimes war can be the lesser of two evils. "We felt it was better in the Second World War to fight for our liberties, enjoyed through 200 years of American history, than go under in a totalitarian system." He said the faith does not work with medicines, and there- fore does not sanction use of birth control pills, but there is no objection to mechanical con- trol methods. Mr. Rogers was for 20 years music critic for the Christian Science Monitor and also serv- ed as editor of the arts and en- tertainment page. His appearance in the dty, sponsored by the First Church of Christ, Scientist, of Letn- bridge, is one .of many he is making in western Canada. A native of New Mexico and raised in San Francisco he spends eight months of the year touring and about four in mis- sionary work in Milan, Italy. Council Okays For Centre Renovations Lethbridge city council last night gave approval to the ex- penditure of for renova- tions to the Civic Sports Cen- tre. The figure includes for air conditioning for car- pentry and masonry work, 000 for re-flooring two gymna- siums and for design and inspection fees. There was some question at the meeting as to the urgency of the renovations however it was suggested that the work should have been done at least two years ago. It was noted that the floors, in particular, are in very bad shape. Part of the money will have to come from the city's contin- gency funds; a provincial grant will cover only of the costs. Council discussed the pos- sibility of deleting several items Mail-Ins Assist Campaign Cecil Gordon, president of the Lethbridge branch of the Canadian Cancer Society, said Tuesday night he is "very pleased with the south Alberta residents who mailed in their donations to the cancer fund- raising campaign." Mr. Gordon said canvassers didn't "call back" this year to homes where no one answered the door. Instead, they left en- velopes for "mail-ins and these are coming in at a very good rate. A meeting of the directors vpas held Tuesday night. To date contributions of all kinds total The objec- tive is The house-to-house campaign realized "Mail-ins" real- ized The business community has donated Contributions from other sources included: special events, contributions from organizations, rural donations, "mail-ins" from rural areas, and memorials, The total to date is up from last year at this time. "Mail-ins are proving to be most Mr. Gordon said. Local Cadets Win Events No. 11 Squadron Lethbridge Air Cadets won three out of four events at the recent south- ern zone competitions at Currie Barracks in Calgary, Commanding Officer E. J. Haun reports that the squadron was successful in the volley- ball, borden ball and rifle com- petitions. They also did well in the drill event, placing second in this category. from the renovation work, thereby saving but it was decided that all first prior- ity items should be retained. Mayor Andy Anderson noted that the work would have to be done sooner or later and the city would not get iiw work done mofe cheaply at a later date. Drag Strip Plan Killed A plan for a proposed drag strip for Lethbridge was killed at city council Tuesday night when Alderman Jim Anderson suggested the matter be "filed and forgotten." Aid. Anderson said it would be impossible to get insurance for the type of drag strip sug- gested by the parks and recrea- tion commission, since even the National Racing Association will not insure it. He said it was already de- cided council could not afford to build one. "The plan had been to UM a paved road surface but the in- s u r a n c e companies wouldn't touch it with ditches involved." Cost of the new drag strip would be about includ- ing about for the ac- tual paved strip and for timing devices and other facil- ities. Traffic, Money Bylaws Read City council Tuesday night gave three readings to a bylaw for a interim grant to the Travel and Convention Associa- tion of Southern Alberta. Prank Smith, TCASA mana- ger, appeared before council Monday night requesting funds to get the 1970 season under way. TCASA had been in fi- nancial trouble, with only in the bank. Council will consider the rest of the request from the association at its May 18 meet- ing. An amendment to a traffic bylaw received first and sec- ond readings. The amendment would change from two days to seven days the length of time for payment of a traffic tag. This would bring the bylaw into conformity with the regu- lations under the Alberta High- way Traffic Act, and permit the issue of traffic tags for addi- tional offences to those already covered by the bylaw. Four aldermen are opposed the amendment. A bylaw to impose a busi- ness tax for 1970 was approved. All people with business in the city will have to pay an eight per 'cent tax on the busi- ness assessment as determined by the assessor. Payment of the 1970 Ux would be due before June 30. Council also gave first read- ing to several bylaws to get money for specific city im- provements. One is to authorize borrow- ing of for construction of curbs, gutters and s 1 d e- walks. A bylaw to requisition for street paving and for lane paving also received first readings. Industrial Name Sought City council is still seeking a name for the new industrial park area that was once a pris- oner of war camp. Dennis O'Connell, Lethbridge economic development officer, has ssked that the park be named to avoid confusion with the old industrial area and be- cause the land is coming to be known as the "prisoner of war industrial which he term- ed an "unfortunate" designa- tion.
