Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - May 23, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta ry \f$f(tnc{0 !A. e. cross '^Photography JZtJ. "Headquarter* For Tape Recorders and Accessories" PHONE 327-2673 The Lethbridge Herald SECOND SECTION Lethbridge^ Alberta, Saturday, May 23,1070 PAGES 17 TO 28 RESTAURANT AND PANCAKE HOUSE BANQUET FACILITIES FOR 75 PEOPLE WARTIME MEMORIES-Events dating back to the ! Second World War were recalled by Gerhard Schreier * pnd Werner Gollwitzer on a recent visit to the site of the ^'cId prisoner of war camp in North Lethbrldge. The two J men, who now live near Frankfurt, Germany, spent five > years in the camp. Part of their current visit to the Leth-, bridge area was spent in searching out Nick Lastuka, for { whom Mr. Schreier worked after the war. The visit to the city is part of a tour that will take them from Ottawa to Vancouver and back. Mr. Gollwitzer says the project is v something of a "sentimental journey", prompted by a Canadian travel brochure he received from his sister. Chiefs Review Tactics, Policies Police use of firearms and plastic credit - card - style drivers' licences were among topics discussed at the Western Canada Chiefs of Police Association 15th annual convention here this week. More than 50 delegates attended the two - day conference, representing police forces from British Columbia to Ontario, and the ROMP. The problem of forged drivers' licences could be solved, police said, if they were issued as punched plastic cards similar to gasoline company credit cards. The system could be in common use in western Canada within the next few years. Lethbridge Police Chief James Carpenter, chairman of the conference, said the plastic cards would make it almost impossible for a traffic officer to make a mistake in the driver's identification, and the cards would be more permanent and tamper - proof. Most police chiefs agreed that officers should use firearms only for protection of life, and never simply to fire warning shots. Exceptions would be made when the officer was dealing with an armed suspect, where he would use his own discretion. Police also discussed how best to release information to news reporters, and called for establishment of departmental public relations officers when' ever cities were large enough to warrant it. Canada Week May 25-31 Next week - May 25 to 31 - is Canada Week, a time that has been set aside across the country to encourage a rarely-displayed Canadian patriotic fervor. Sponsored and organized by an independent Canada Week Committee, the celebration will Include flag waving, special speakers, lapel pins, bumper stickers - and lots of discussion about what a real Canadian is.

The federation has established a policy that only small or medium - sized cities will be invited to host the 1973 games. Bill Brown, superintendent of the parks and recreation department, said Lethbri d g e stands an excellent chance because it can be classed as a larger small centre. City council authorized expenditure of $500 for the proposal, which will determine what facilities are available in Lethbridge and what facilities the city would need to host the games. art, chairman of the Canada Week Committee and immediate past president of the Canadian Association for the Mentally Retarded. She said the committee will accept almost anything as an indication of national pride. People can fly the Canadian flag outside their homes, write letters to the editor, talk it up on radio phone-in shows and best of all, Mrs. Stuart said, they can take the time to discuss Canada with their friends, families and co-workers. The week has been given support by Prime Minister Trudeau and all provincial premiers, and will be celebrated at Expo 70 in Osaka, Japan. MAY SHOPPING SUMMER CAMPS Order your supplies new.

Lethbridge, Chief Carpenter said, is not large enough and its system of news releases from the duty sergeant works effectively. -- The chiefs thought most protection in cases of large - scale, pre-planned demonstrations or youth festivals should be a federal government responsibility, with RCMP ordered into the area in force when sufficient advance notice was available. They also recommended that provinces without Munici p a 1 Police Acts should adopt them They said the acts should contain legislation to form provin-cial police commissions and clauses to allow municipal police officers authority to act throughout the province, as an other protective measure against demonstrations. At present only Alberta, On tario and Quebec have acts approaching the chiefs' recommendations. Police were told by an electronics firm that a new type of radio scrambling device with thousands of possible codes will soon be available, which would make outside monitoring of police radios impossible. Marijuana use should remain an offence under the Narcotic Control Act, the chiefs decided, particularly since the active in gredient of marijuana, called THC, is now being manufactured synthetically and could be more potent than LSD. The chiefs were addressed by Alberta Attorney - General Edgar Gerhart, who, admitting he had purchased Irish Sweepstakes tickets, said changes in the criminal code regarding gambling and lotteries, we r e "timely and practical." Mr. Gerhart said Alberta is experimenting with various forms of lottery control, and after the relatively free reign allowed this year, new regulations will likely include a 10 per cent tax and a licence fee for lottery operators. The chiefs expressed interest i the Lethbridge Community College law enforcement program and its operation. The course is the only one offered in Alberta. Police officials discussed their frustration over some criminal code and other legislation that hampers their work, including n particular definitions of bombs. Under existing statutes, a primed Mclotov cocktail is only a can of gasoline with a piece of cloth dangling from it, until it is lit. Their use is becoming increasingly popular, but police can do nothing about them until it is too late. DEPARTMENT OF YOUTH GRANT - Lethbridge university and college students' councils were given a $4,000 Alberta department of youth grant Friday, to be used to assist students in finding jobs this summer. Both students' councils have donated the funds to the Hire-a-Student campaign, to pay salaries of two students working in the Canada Manpower Centre's student placement section. Four other students in the section are paid by Manpower Many Jobs Still Needed and other grants.

Weatherup were elected to the board of directors of the Canadian Arthritis and Rheumatism Society Alberta division at the division's annual meeting held recently in Calgary. In his report to the meeting, Mr. O. E. Buker, division president, said major discovery is not the sole objective of the society's research program. Besides probing for the cause and cure of the rheumatic diseases, today's research activities include seeking and developing treatment programs for relieving the misery of the thousands who suffer from these diseases. Included in the worthwhile research projects and clinical investigations supported by C.A.R.S. last year were several being carried out at the Uni versity of Alberta. Mr. Buker was returned as president of the division. The Lethbridge Hire-a-Stu-der.t campaign this summer has been successful so far, although more jobs are still needed to keep all students employed. Grant Pisko and Joe Pupp, both graduating University of Lethbridge students and employed for the summer as Canada Manpower Centre student placement officers, are optimistic about the situation for the remainder of the summer. "We can usually find a student a job within a few days after he applies here - particularly if he's willing to take any kind of job," Mr. Pisko said. "Some of the jobs we do find are quite temporary - only two or three days or a couple of weeks, but if students are willing to take them, we can keep them fairly well ac-cupied," added Mr. Pupp. "A lot of it is up to the student." The Letlhbridge Hire - a - Stu dent campaign is co-sponsored by Manpower and the Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce, with assistance from the Alberta department of youth, Lethbridge and District Labor Council, students' councils and administrations of the University of Lethbridge and Lethbridge Community College and the city news media. "We've had lots of co-operation from eimployers in the city," Mr. Pisko said, "but possibly some could take a second look around at their operations, to see if they'll need ex tra summer help, or summer replacement help - or even someone to give their business grounds a thorough cleanup" He said all businesses can help, although a substantial boost in job opportunities is expected when the tourist season starts and the city tourist industry becomes busy. Six university and college students including Mr. Pisko and Mr. Pupp are working in Manpower's student placement section, providing their own administration, screening, counselling and job-seeking work, The others are Jerry Grimes, Pat Lacey, Porfirio Calacay and Guy Sabey. A let of students come up to the office every morning and every afternoon and just stay here until a job comes in, and we send them out to fill it," Mr. Pupp said. He said it was an effective way to get jobs, since parti cularly for the shorter-length jobs, students were sent out on a first-come first-served basis. Whoever, is handiest gets the job. "We want to impress employers that not all students are only 18 or 19 years old," Mr. Pisko said, them to look "We don't want for jobs they LETHBRIDGE REFRIGERATION LTD.

Mr. Watson, a long-time teacher himself, was featured speaker at the annual banquet. He said he wanted to thank the nine teachers retiring from the system, on behalf of "your school board, administrators, students and parents for your work in the classrooms of Lethbridge schools. "Now that you have some free time on your hands you will find the truth of appreciation," Mr. Watson said. "Your former students will stop you and introduce themselves and remind you that you were their former teacher or principal. "They will mention incidents which happened in the classroom, and how delighted they were in your manner of teaching literature, or math, or whatever else you taught them. "Many a young woman will speak of appreciation for the help you gave her with her now-e v e r y d a y homemaking tasks." Mr. Watson said the "ecstacy of teaching" the retiring teach ers now have is what students and parents sum up as their having been "good teachers." Retiring teachers this year were W. J. White, principal of Gilbert Paterson Elementary Junior High School; Mrs. Vera Head, a teacher at Paterson; Miss Esther Elford, also from Paterson; Mrs. Ann Coe, teacher at Hamilton Junior High School; Sister Irene Hoch-stein, a teacher at St. Mary's School; Miss Verna Gray, teacher at Wilson Junior High School; Mrs. Marjorie Boulton, teacher at Allan Watson Elementary School; Mrs. Velma Shaw, teacher at Senator Buchanan Elementary School and Miss Barbara Boyle, also a teacher at Senator Buchanan.

He added that to some extent the student placement officers screen the students they send cut on jobs: if they don't think the student is qualified, they don't send them out Many of the smaller jobs are coming from landscaping, painting and general cleanup and repair of city homes and yards, and anyone who needs similar jobs done can call Manpower's student placement office to find a student for their work. "All we need Is for students to register with us - and keep in regular touch," Mr. Pupp said. Mr. Pisko and Mr. Pupp will visit city high schools on Monday to accept registrations from high school students who want Manpower assistance in finding jobs.
