Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 11, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thurtciay, May 11, 197J City council gives support to stop-youth-travel move Citv council has endorsed a the youths have adequate City council has endorsed a resolution to petition the fed- eral government to discourage youth? 'mm travelling across the connlry this summer. The resolution was initiated nt the Pentidon city c o u ncil table and spnt to oilier munici- palities in Canada for their con- sideration of the proposals. Penticton, a summer recrea- tion centre, was motivated by what is cp.lled a "problem which is becoming more pro- nounced each year" and which is being "accelerated by fed- eral government policy." An influx of transient youths Into that community "tends to increase the crime rate, in- crease the level of alcohol and drug abuse, and increase the cost of Eccial welfare to the municipality The resolulion to be submit- ted to the federal government asks that youths under 1G years of age and any youths, regard- less of age, without sufficient means of support, be discour- aged from travelling in the country. As guidelines, the Penticton council suggested that when the youths have adequate means of support, the commun- ities should encourage their ao commodalion. But, when a youth comes inlo Ihe city seek- ing social assistance, he should be required to work for that assistance. It that approach is unacceptable to the youth, lie should receive "only minimum assistance from the commun- ity." The Penticton council also suggests the local police or a provincial department of re- habilitation and social improve- ment be made aware of the presence of transient children under 16 and that the parents of these children be contacted to bring their children home. The Lethbridge city council accepted the suggestions in principle as "guidelines for the operation of hostels." On a related matter, council Tuesday approved a recom- mendation dealing with youth hostels. The federal government will be asked to make funds avail- able to municipalities this sum- mer for the development of youth hostels. A similar re- Ii BEST VALUE FOR THE CONSUMER DOLLAR First we would like lo say that we have every respect for tho opinions of Mr. Ed Potter and feel thof he is a knowledgeable ond qualified health Inspector. However, we hasten Jo add ihol some opinons expressed by him arc his own and do not necessarily reflect the opinion of either the Provincial Board of Health or the Canadian Association. In feet, regarding Mr. Potter's recently published opinion of smorgosbordi, there is rnuch evidence to indicate that he stands solely on his own In his opinion of buffets. Probably the strongest suggestion comes from Ihe Provincial Board of Hoallh itself. In 1970 and again In 1972 the Boord held ifc annual convention for members and officers at the Park Plaza Motor Hotel. Thesa were both Gltcndcd by docfcrj, nurses and Inspectors from tho Eosrd. At each convention the meals requested were predominately imorgasbord type meels and at each convenilon these smor- gas bonds were highly praised by ihe members of the Board of Health, This praisa would indicole that the Board Is in fart very pleased with well run smorgasbord ond cafeleria operations. The restaurant Industry has been a self-regulaling In- dustry and since its very conception has striven fo provide tho highest possible quality In bolh food and services at the most reasonable prices. It is, in fact, this self-regula- tion and total acceptance by the consumer which has allow- ed ths industry to provide the many varied services which ll does ?oday. Tho res In ura tour, of course, realizes that if he does no) service his patrons la hig fullest capabilities )he customer' of today may well not be the cuslorVier of to- morrow. Tor this reason ihen, any well run opera lion is either striving to reach or striving to maintain that per- fection which Is so important to Its future. Perfetlion in ilself ii an elusive goal but we feel there are many areas of the industry in which this perfection or near-perfection has been reached by the majority of restaur- aleurs. One of these areas has been lhat of the preparation, itorage and service of food. This Is, of course, without the exception of any stylo of service. Unfortunately, to take the comments made by Mr. Poller out of context indicates a generalization of his per- lonal opinion which we are sure he did not intend. Fol- lowing his initial commcnls about smorgasbords, Mr. Polter en to :ay that his food poisoning invesligntjons in- volving bufiets In the last year were buffets put on by private organizations who do not have the benefits of the most modern equipment and techniques. Smorgasbords will never be abandoned as they pro- vide the consumer wilh excellent food at reasonable prices, the very objectives of the industry. Thanks to the effective use of modern equipment and techniques the danger of food decay can and has virtually been eliminated In well run operations. This use of modern techniques is, of course, not resrrlcted to smorgasbords ana" cafeterfas but extends to every facet of tho food service industry. The ability of good restaurateurs lo make use of modern techniques so as to continuously provide the customer with the very best in food and services makes us proud lo be part of this expanding Industry. The Pork Plaza management, who have been In lho food induslry since 1941, first Introduced ihe smorgasbord to Lethbridge in the York Hotel and has since moved to 1h0 Park Plaza. During this time lho equipment and methods Improved in the Industry, as they did In all Industries, and the Park Plaza was swift to take full advantage of these Improvements. Today the temperature of foods and thus tho possibilily of decay can be completely controlled. With our own personal objective) of providing ihs best possible food ond services to ihe customer of trio lowest prices wo feel thot the cuilomer hai a right 1o expect a smorgasbord or, at tho very least, the option of a smor- gasbord. With this in mind then the Park Plaza will continue In tho future, as It has In the poit, to answer tho needj nnd deiir03 of our patrons. In tho restaurant Industry tha guest is still the most Important person wo know. IIARKJUZA MOTOR HOTEL MANAGEMENT quest will be made of the pro- vincial government. The city has provided fop hostelling accommodations at the city hall annex this summer. Vancouver students visit city A busload of 46 Vancouver youngsters stopped in Leth- bridge briefly as part of a school studies tour of B.C. and Alberta, and decided there's so much lo see that they'll plan to slay longer next year. The 24 girls and 22 hoys, to- gether with two teachers and a former teacher, are Grade 7s at the Sir Matthew Begbie Ele- mentary School, and they paid for the trip themselves. Earlier Heisler, the school's vice-principal and one of the teachers on the tour, said they had stayed in Banff Tuesday night, and were hoping to get to Trail, B.C. by tonight, after a quick of Lethbridpe this morning and Cranbrook this af- ternoon. "The tour has given us a chance to show city youngsters what the mountains, prairie and farmland looks like most of them haven't really been outside of Vancouver in their Mr. Heisler said. Mr. Heisler said he started planning the venture last Octo- ber, and next year will plan a similar trip with a full day in Lelhbridge, having seen what the area has to offer his stu- dents and meeting with lo- cal hospilality and co-opera- tion. The tour stayed at the Holiday Motel. ACT (ALBERTA GOVERNMENT Workmen tamp the dirt ot the base of an underground vault in front of the Alberta government Telephones building on 4th Ave. S.

Mechanics and young lov- ers arc involved in some un- wished-for plans by the mis- chievous sprite, Puck.

The play Is suit- able for an audience of any age, with cuts made in the long- er speeches, and an adherence to slapstick comedy rather than subtle humor. The cast in general grasps the uninhibited attitude of the play, with Puck, played by Lois Dongworth, perhaps beest per- sonifying the underlying spirit. She is mischievous, lovabio and bouncy, something that can't be restrained. Tile whole cast was in the spirit of the play, but some- thing was lost in the portrayals of the nobility and the Fairy ICing and Queen. The one scene that seemed to lack purpose was the last, with the fairy cast making fairy movements in the duke's house. Words of the speakers, except for Puck, were indis- tinguishable arid Vhc m o v e- ments didn't help any In sort- ing out what was happening. The curtain call was origin- al and left actors and audience v.ith just a generally good feeling.
