Playgoers' Shakespeare Thursday The Lethbridge Playgoers will offer the first local pro- duction of a Shakespearian play Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. in the Yates Memorial Centre. The play, A Midsummer Night's Dream, will be per- formed in modern dress on an abstract turntable set designed by Cathy Evins. "Director Dick Mells said the cast was attempting to show the timelessness of Shake- speare, and in doing so had made cuts in the longer speeches and brought action into focus more than was us- ually done. Mr. Mells said that Play- goers had always chosen large- cast plays to increase par- ticipation, and that A Mid- summer Night's Dream also succeeded in involving young, talented people with more ex- perienced performers in the production of a play. The matinee performances For Mother's Day! NEW! ENGIERT Wednesday and Thursday for high school students have been sold out.

By RUDY HAUGENEDER Herald Staff Writer This year's Opportunities for Youth program "is a mess" says Deane Gundlock, Conser- vative MP for Lethbridge. He said in a Herald inter- view this morning, "As far as I know, Lethbridge got 18 OFY grants tentatively. "I've had to look at a choice of 18 for review, and am cur- rently torn between six pro- jects. And then there's no real assurance that the 18 tentative projects will be funded." Mr. Gundlock indicated that Federal Finance Minister John Turner's budget announcement today may have considerable impact on the number of pro- jects announced later. Earlier, OFY officials in Cal- gary said between 20 and 25 projects worth about had been approved for the Lethbridge area. "I don't know who dreamed up this year's method of hand- ling OFY projects and I don't like the way its being handled this Mr. Gundlock said. "Frankly, last year's system was better. The OFY people shouldn't "beat around the bush, because its hard on student applicants. "They've been kept waiting, waiting and left up in the air." However, he held out hope that Mr. Turner's "sunshine budget" will provide more money for projects such as the OFY. The Medicine Hat News re- ported that Agriculture Minis- ter Bud Olson had announced the OFY grants in his riding. The news report gave full de- tails including names and cash amounts. Mr. Olson's office this morn- ing said the release was an embarrassment to the agricul- ture minister because he was to AIR CONDITIONING Alcon Refrigeration Ltd.

But to date no release has been made. Last week Gerard Pelletier secretary of state and minister in charge of OFY promised to talk about OFY with the Herald. However, this morning Mr. j Pelletier's Ottawa secretary said the minister was attending an all-day meeting and was not to be disturbed. Restaurants not cause of food poison Most food poisoning case occur at organizations not sub ject to licensing and not in spected by health authorities Alberta Restaurant Association Zone 3 president Peter Hal' said today. He was commenting on Th Herald's coverage last week cud of the association's annua meeting and a speech made b city health inspector I. H. Pof ter. Mr. Hale pointed out the provincial board of health reg ulations regarding restaurants have been brought about "pri- marily at tne request of and with the help of the Canadian Restaurant Association." "In fact, the Preliminary Sanitation Code for Canada's food service industry has been written entirely by a commit- tee of the CRA, which is re- questing that these regulations apply across he said. Most of the food poisoning cases were not catered by res- taurants, he said, because res- taurant food is subject to rigid health inspection.

Some of the questions the consultants have dealt with concern the size, location and cost of a multi-purpose arena. Three suggested locations for an arena with a seating capac- ity for at least people are the Exhibition Grounds, the Lethbridge Community College and the downtown area west of 4th St. S. It was not known at press time what the consultants find- ings are. Cold snap to stay Sweaters are in, bikinis are out for awhile at least as the weatherman has forecast con- tinuing dull, cloudy, cool con- ditions through Tuesday. A weather front on the west coast is holding the present condilons and they are being complicated by a southeasterly moist wind and cool weather.

Official reports from the Pincher Creek weather office show 0.04 of an inch of pre- cipitation fell during the past 24 hours, to 5 a.m. today. Much of this was light rain showers interspersed with fine snow. Visibility in the area was re- ported at three-quarters of a mile, with fog adding to the problems.
