The branch has hired two case workers in the past month bringing its total staff to five, including a secretary and its present offices in the Metcalfe Building are not adequate, the regional direc- tor said recently. "We hired more people be- cause there is a need in this community. Two of us couldn't adequately c'o the says Norm Cowie. In the new offices, space will be provided for a day centre a place where peo- ple can socialize as an alter- native to the beer he said. The centre would not be restricted to those people with drug problems. Mr. Cowie said it is often helpful for people with drug-depen- dency problems to mix with "straight people." One of the new case work- ers is a former Lethbridge insurance representative who will be working with indus- try to help develop a policy for employees with drug and alcohol problems. Jack Rollingson will be sell- ing to industry the idea that drug-dependency is a treat- able disease and therefore af- flicted employees should be eligible ior sickness benefits and early retirement provi- sions. Mr. Cowie said the image of an alcoholic as a skid- road bum is false. He esti- mated that about 50 ppr cent are steadily employed and another 35 per cent would be classed as transient labor, or people working in seasonal trades. The other new case work- er is Norman Briscoe. form- erly with the attorney-gen- eral's department in Edmon- ton. Mr. Briscoe will be respon- sible for liaison with the courts and the correctional institute and will teach the impaired drivers' course. The course is offered every month to people convicted of impaired driving or a related offence. It was formerly run by the attorney-general's de- partment. Jo-Ann Critchfield, who previously did court work for the commission, will now be freed to work with medical and para-medical staff on the treatment of alcoholics and drug addicts. She will also try and get some information on drug- denendency into school curri- cula. Commission member to Belgrade The Lethbridge regional di- rector of the Alberta Alcohol- ism and Drag Abuse Com- mission will represent the commission at two interna- tional conferences in Bel- grade, Yugoslavia, in June. From June 11 to 16, Norm Cowie will attend the 19th annual International Institute on the Prevention and Treat- ment of Alcoholism and from June 18 to 21, will take part in ihe 4th International Institute on Prevention and Treatment of Drug Depen- dence. "I'll be looking for new tools to make our programs more effective by examining what the rest of the world is Mr. Cowie said. "It's an excellent opportun- ity to become of what programs exist and what the different philosophies are. I feel very honored being able to go on behalf of the com- mission.'' for Mother on Mother's Day... The perfect remembrance for Mother's Day is flowers or plants.

Indian Neivs Media role lauded The Indian News Media of Cardston has played an im- portant role in the growth of the Southern Alberta Indian reserves, a community de- velopment officer with the provincial government said Saturday. Representing the provin- cial government at the third annual meeting of the Indian News Media, Bob Lang said it is not only important for reserve organizations to grow but it is also essential for people to be informed of the activities of these organiza- tions. As an outsider looking in, he said it appears the Indian News Media ''have done very very well1' in keeping Indian pscple in touch with activities.

Caen Ely, editor of the Kainai News, a bi monthly newspaper, says it was found thai some people were trying to hold down executive positions in mere than one native organization and the society members h i p felt these people cculd not devote the time required of them to properly cany out their functions as a member of the board of directors. The membership also ed out the position of execu- tive director and redefined the office manager's position to include the duties and re- sponsibilities previously held by the executive director. Les Healy. Jim Wells and Leo Fox were elected Satur- day to two year terms as members of the executive committee of the society board of directors.

Appearing before a small- er-than-deserved audience at the Memorial Centre Sunday evening, St. Albert's "Pitch and Spice" provided an enjoyable two-hour con- cert. Consisting of 210 >oung people between the ages of 13 and IS, the group from Northern Alberta featured an impressive number of so- phisticated young perform- ers. Brought to Lethbridge for a one-night engagement by Catholic Central High School- Pitch and Spice con- sists of both junior (that's the Spice) and senior (Pitch) singers and musicians. The group was organized four years ago as a youth pro- ject by conductor Father Ubald Duchensneau of St. Al- bert's Catholic Church. And in case you are won- dering about the singers' un- usual names, Spice stands for Spreading Peace In Crowds Everywhere; Pitch is an ab- breviation for People In The Crowds-Harmony. Less fervent and chauvinis- tic than the American U p With People singing groups, Pitch and Spice offer music that is a happy blend of pop, soft rock, and the inspiration-. si. Renditions by Spice gen- erally reflected the kind of exuberance and zest that warms the heart. Pitch, on the other hand, presented a more serious and rrflective view of life. Taken as a whole, the two approaches provided a well-balanced pro- gram. In numbers such as ''Song Sung "Butterfly" and a superb ''Glory Train'', Spice proved themselves both versatile and talented. In their own rock opera. "Spell Bound'1, Pitch gave a musi- cal portrayal enhanced by narration and slides of the birth and growth of a young boy. The portrayal was par- ticularly touching and re- vealing when it dealt with the fears and concerns of youth today. One of the best numbers in the opera was "Who Has The reflecting the age-old quest for truths about life, God and the hereafter. Pitch and Spice performed with virtuosity, proving tal- ent and sensitivity are not tha preserve of the adult. Theirs was the kind of presentation that re-affirms faith in youth as the hope for tomorrow.
