Cliief deputy minister Bruce Rawson, speaking at liie sixth annual convention and aging seminar sponsored by the ACA at the University of Lethbridge, said that Health Minister Neil Crawford had expressed inter- est in the project's develop- ment. He said Mr. Crawford de- sired to h a v e the government take an informed position on the situation of senior citizens in Alberta.

Senior citizens should volunteer A recommendation was pro- posed Thursday that the Alber- ta Council on Aging be urged lo organize a planned effort to involve senior citizens in volun- teer programs. The proposal was made at a workshop discussing senior cit- izens as volunteers, part of the two-day Fun-damentals of Ag- ing Seminar which began Thursday at the University of Lclhbridge. Approximately 100 people from throughout the province, most cither with a professional interest in senior citizens or se- nior citizens themselves, are at- tending the seminar sponsored by the Alberta Council on Aging- "There is a very definite need for planning in senior cit- izens' volunteer w o r said chairman Doug Walker, co-or- dinalor of volunteers for the Calgary public school board. j "A training program of some OUR NEW PHONE NUMBER IS 328-6661 2 linoi to serve you better ANGLO DISTRIBUTORS STEREO AND PHOTOGRAPHIC C1NTRE 419 5th SI.

It was felt that If a specific job was offered, with definite qualifications and responsibili- ties, the response would be dra- matically increased. "Requests lor help arc too vague to generally much evoke any re. sponse right now." "If the jobs are going to be of a specific nature, there needs to be a variety of opportunities to present to senior said Mr. Walker. "They must be shown that there are many types of jobs available, some of which they are sure to be especially inter- ested in or qualified for." He mentiontd long-term care centres as one type of institu- tion where physical needs only were looked filer by tbe staff, and volunteer care was re- quired to supplement patients' other needs. "Workers are required to cre- ate for them the kind of mean- ingful situations that make the difference between being alive and being he said. "Patients, particularly psy- chiatric patients, relate much better on a person-to-person ba- sis with volunteers than staff, because they know the volun- teer really wants to help." "It is just not economically possible to do the type of qual- ity work desirable in many in- stitutions without active volun- teer he said.

The fishing feat was accom- plished by 1he elder Mr. Berber as he "tested" a fishing outfit he had just purchased for his son. He was using 12 pound test monofilament line, a wire leader ond a 25-cent red and white spoon. Evidently the cost of equipment doesnt really matter to a fish. The catch establishes a new record for Alberta. The previous record record was 34 pounds. The world record is 46 pounds, two ounces.

Mr. Wurz said Hutterites should be able to buy as mucli land and settle wherever they want. The act, which recently suspended by the Lougheed government, limits the size of Hutterite land holdings and being as the result of a public outcry about Hutterite land holdings in southern Alberta. Then, as now, fanners feared that unless legislation were set to restrict land holdings, south- ern Alberta would turn into a Hutterite reserve.

By .JOE MA Herald Staff Writer The Canadian Transport Commission in Ottawa said to- day the application by Time Airways of Lethbridge to oper- ate to Grande Prairie has been rejected. The commission does not feel that it is necessary for Time Airways to operate to Grande Pairie." Gloria Brock of the information department of the commission told The Her- ald in a telephone interview. "We are disappointed." Time president Stubb Ross said in a long d'stancc call from Cal- gary. 'But we won't quit here. I am reluming to Lethbridge today. After studying the deci- sion, we will decide what course of action we will take. But we won't quit." Mr. Ross said he hasn't re- ceived the commission's deci- sion and he is "disturbed that the commission released the in- formation to the press without informing the carrier first.'1 Mrs. Brock said the decision was mailed from Ottawa Wed- nesday.

The four are: Michael Lee Swallow, 25, of Alaska and Topeka, Kansas. Louis Bloome, 25. Samuel Charles (Carl) Ol- son, 26, and Donald William An- drews, 20, all of Lethbridge. Mr. Babki was unsuccess- ful in an attempt to have charges against Andrews drop- ped for lack of evidence against him. The defense case was short- consisting of only two witness- es. The first witness called was a young Lethbridge man who had been with the five persons charged until just before the alleged incidents had taken place. He told the court he had met the five men and some other persons at a local bar earlier "T seen Olson and Bloome trying to puli two bouncers off Michael Swallow and then I seen Hober get hit on the head twice morn with 'Hober finally helmet, got out and yelled for the doors to be closed I just stood outside the cabaret doors and watched and then the police he said. For the final defense witness Mr. Babki called Carl Olson- one of the accused men. Olsen disputed evidence pre- sented earlier in the trial by Mr. Hober.

He said as the group of men attempted lo go down a flight of stairs at the cabaret they were stopped. "I went down the stairs and no one stopped me, but I look- ed up the stairs and seen all the rest of the guys had been stop- ped. "The next thing I saw was Michael Swallow sort of run- ning, falling and stumbling down the he told the court. At the bottom of the stairs a lot of people were reported to have grabbed Swallow and dragged him into the cabaret, where two bouncers allegedly slarlcd to hit and kick him.

Hutterites also do not contri- bute towards the normal op- eration of a municipality or community, they charged. Mr. Wurz countered, stating Grande Prairie from seven to that Huttcrites pay federal and 12 weekly, said Grande Prairie is being adequately serviced. PWA's argument was (hat if ny other airline should be given permission to serve Grande Prairie, it should re- ceive the priority.
