Water rationing remains a possibility today, although the dirt in the water from the Oldman River has dropped to 900 -parts per million from Wednesday's reading of parts per million. The normal level is 200-400 ports dirt per million parts water. City engineer Randy Hofield said if the demand for water increases now. he will have to ask for curtailment of lawn and garden watering. There is enough water for essential needs, he said. Water treatment technician Larry Dye illustrates the difference between the raw water taken from the river and the product distributed to the city after treatment, Kerber Photo Birdie did not shine By HiARLENE COOKSIIAW Herald Staff Writer The Lethbridge Collegiate In- stitute's production of Bye Bye Birdie Wednesday night was mediocre performance with few brilliant spots that made the whole show worth watch ing. The play approached three hours in length and wasn't paced well enough to make you unaware of the time. Set changes should not have taken as much time as they did. Bye Bye Birdie has a lot of really good lines and interest- ing characters, but in to many cases the audience laughed at ART BSETRICH DENTURE CUNIC DENTAL MECHANIC Schwartz Bldg. 222 5th St. S.

Albert's mother, played by Lee Heinhardl, had the poten- tial of a strong dynamic and hilarious character, but mostly she came off as a lonely old lady who said some funny things. David and Laurie Mann as Mr. and Mrs. MacAfee were by 'ar the most outstanding actors on ths stage. The gruff father and his fluttery wife were de- ightful to watch and demon- strated the talent and adapt- ibihty of a young brothcr-sis- ,er team. Mark Litchfield as rock and roll singer Conrad Birdie was another bright and lively addi- ion to the cast. His performance especially shone in the musical numbers. In general, however, the cast a whole lacked something. he youthful drive and excite- nent that should have been here wasn't, there was a Iraggy feeling when there ihonld have been a bounce and ARTISTIC i PICTURE FRAMING ARTISTS' SUPPLIES ART GALLERY 710 5 AVE S IETHBBIBCE-AITA i Weekdays 9 to FOR QUALITY AND REASONABLE PRICES CALL AT GARDENTEREA 7th Ave. and 20th St. N.

It may have been just be- cause it was a second-night per- formance or because the au- dience was small. Probably a lot had to do with the fact that it's the first production by tho school in three years and most of the cast hasn't had any act- ing experience outside the school. A production a year would definitely improve the natural quality on stage and give the students a chance to apply what they had learned from a previous performance. The production crew had some well-qualified members as well. Jerry Pokarney led the LCI school band in a good, strong accompaniment to the musical numbers, and his wife Diane's choreography brought a bright young quality to the stage. A small dance scene by Lori UUy is worth mentioning. A young, talented dancer, her per- formance was bright and sim- ple and professionally done. Sets, designed by Art Pozzi and Jack Stead, provided a stark white background for the aclors, and were just what was needed. The production continues at the Yates Memorial Centre at tonight and Friday, with tickets available at the box of- fice. 3S CHURCHES There are 38 churches serv- ing 21 religious denominations in Lethbridge.

In a morning trial at Leth- bridge magistrate's court Mich- ael Lee Swallow, 25. Topeka, Kansas, Samuel Charles (Carl) Olsen, 26, Allen Louis Blomme, 25 and Donald Andrews, 21, all of Lethbridge, were found guilty of causing a disturbance at the cabaret. Each man was fined as- sessed no costs or given the al- ternative of two months in jail in default of payment. In addition to the fines, Blomme and Olsen were each sentenced to 30 day jail terms for their part as ring-leaders in the incident. Andrews was sentenced to an additional 10 day jail term and the American, Swallow, receiv- ed no additional sentence when Judge L. W7. Hudson indicated he would be deported at the end of a two month jail term be- cause he could not pay the fine. Immediately following their convictions the four men, plus Richard Burrows, previously acquitted on the causing a dis- turbance charge and Michael D. Waggoner, 29, Anchorage. Alaska, were taken to the court house for a continuation of a trial on joint charges of assault causing bodily harm to Al Hober, manager of the cabaret. The assault charges also stemmed from the Marcli ]R in- cident at the El Rancho Motor Hotel. The second trial of the day was adjourned until May 24 at 9 a.m. in Lethbridge magis- trate's court when the defence was unable to complete its pre- sentation following the testi- mony of Olsen, one of the ac- cused, and a witness in his be- half. Bob Babki, defense counsel for four of the accused, request- ed the adjournment to allow time for records from the first trial to be completed so he might use them in the second trial.
