Thurs. to Closed Saturdays Debaters balk at award plan CALGAKY (CP) The strictly stag approach of the Sir Wintston Churchill Mem- orial Society has left some of the student debaters it plans to honor today less than impressed. The society sponsored de- bates between Southern Al- berta high schools and told the top four debaters last month they would be honored at the society's annual ban- quet. The students assumed they would be dining with the Two men plead guilty to theft A Taber man and a Cards- ton man pleaded guilty in court Tuesday to charges of break, enter, and theft and remanded to May 17 for sentencing. James Across The Moun- tain, 24, of Cardston and Ar- nold Benjamin Bird, 16, of Taber were charged follow- ing a break in Tuesday at Home and Pitfield Foods Ltd. on Scedc Drive. Entry was made through the north door of the building after the glass had been broken. Court was told goods from the store were found in the possession of the two men. members, and possibly sitting at the head table. When the students learned they were to eat elsewhere and only appear for awards, they were not pleased and said so. The society decided to change its plans and invite them to dine, but two of the debaters were girls from Drumheller, Alta., and the other team had a woman coach. The society is reserved for men, so only the two male debaters and the male coach from Drumheller were to dine at the banquet. This was even less accept- ab'e to the students so the society reverted to its origin- al-plan-of having them dine elsewhere. James Hathaway, one of the winning Grade 11 students from Sir Winston Churchill High School in Calgary, said the banquet would have been the debating highlight for him. "Everybody around here is pretty mad about it. they're supposed to be a society of gentlemen, but if this is gentlemanly behavior, then I've had enough of The Herald in error C. O.

SERVICE TO RADIO STATIONS 'Voice clips gov't propaganda' MARQUIS FLOWER SHOP Phone 327-1515 Local scouts visit U.S. A contingent of 165 South- ern Alberta Scouts, accom- panied by 20 adult leaders, participated in the annual Lewis-Clark Exposition in Great Falls, Mont., last week- end. Richard Bide was contin- gent co-ordinator. Groups participating included 2nd, 5th, 14th, 15th and 18th Leth- bridge and 1st and 2nd Coal- dale. EDMONTON _ (CP) A voice clip service announced Tuesday by the Alberta gov- ernment, "is an addition to the substantial government propaganda said James Henderson, house leader for the Social Credit opposition in the last legisla- ture. He said in an interview Tuesday the plan, "is anotrier effort to bypass the news me- dia when it comes to putting a practical interpretation on government releases." The news sendee will pro- vide clips of statements by cabinet ministers by tele- phone to radio stations in cities and towns outside Ed- monton. Mr. Henderson said the move will result in increased exposure of government min- isters and the news will be basically the interpretation of those ministers. Newsmen wanting a voice clip ask for a zenith num- ber and three or four state- ments from ministers are fed over the line. The service is to cost the government about per month. Clips to be available are to be tied to the Alberta Com- munications Network A note on the network will indicate if a voice clip is available. Stations would be able to telephone a number in Ed- monton collect for clips which are available at that time. The ACN is a teletype net- work of printed government releases fed into radio and newspaper newsrooms throughout Alberta outside of Edmonton. Calls will automatically be placed toll-free to the voice clip recorder number through local, long distance operators. The zenith number is expect- ed to be operational today. 4-H debaters in Banff ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC Schwartz Bldg. 222 5th St. S.

Dr. Horner said in a re- lease, "It is expected that the agency, which is the first of its kind in Canada, will pro- vide a means of assisting Al- berta businessmen to cap- ture agricultural products." He said the agency has been established as a result of observations made on re- cent trade missions to Japan and Central and South Am- erica where it was found that contacts with ether govern- ments can assist the conclu- sion of market agreements between private business firms. the past year Al- berta has supported the es- tablishment of such an agency for Western Canada and also a similar federal agency, however, both of these are still under con- he said. The agency will consist of a board of directors with five members. Dr. G. E. Pumell, deputy minister of agriculture for Alberta will be chairman. Other members include: dep- uty minister of the Alberta department of industry and commerce 'or his designate; a representative from agri- business; a representative from producer organizations and a general The initial funding of the agency will consist of mil- lion with an additional au- thorization for guaranteed loans as credit requirements develop.
