It was an evening that made you feel as if you were doing something fun for the first time. This in spite of lines rattled and not project- ed, a rather desperate tensions that sagged. And the largest audience yet of Playgoers Festival week who stayed the course reaped the benefit in the last offering of the evening Fanny of Funny Brook Farm. Not that they weren't al- most pipped at the post by the curtain-raiser, For Love of a House. This creaky old vehicle calls for camp. Play- ed in all seriousness it was a mudder for the young ac- tresses. But Vicky Kupis won> over the material with a very good characterization as the daily help. And there was nice work from Gwen Miller as the elderly Mrs. Dearman. Age conveyed in the walk, Haircut price up Price of a haircut in the city has gone up 25 cents to in most barbershops. The increase was an- nounced today by Raymond DeCaire, president of the Lethbridge Barbers Associa- tion. About 60 per cent of the barbershops in the city are members of the association, but Mr. DeCaire says other shops generally keep prices in fine with those charged by association members. The increase is the first in two years and was blamed on rising costs. ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC Schwartz Bldg. 222 5th St. S. Phone 328-4095 Plant New!

Number two on the playbill, Nero Fiddles Is a very funny farce. It calls for every line to get through to the audi- ence, for cues to be picked up smartly. Much got lost at the curtain line but the fun, in- cluding the hair makeup cas- cading from the head of Pae- tus got through to the audi- ence. This play also gave us the most interesting actress of the evening. Judy Pickett (Agrippina) moved, project- ed and reacted and was most successful in getting across a very subtle age differential. Befinitely a young actress to watch. Another young actress, Judy Mehrer, proved the leavening agent for a doughy and doughty vehicle called The Unseen. A natural com- edienne she received solid support from Joyce Bond. And then there was Fanny cf Funny Brook Farm. Script- ed by Bick Mells, with music by Henry Waack, Fanny al- lowed the players to shuck their inhibitions and take the bit between their teeth. And blessed by pulsating plasma, all the stock purple playhouse characters and sit- uations were here. There was Jack All Eight (Brian King) a marvellous mix of Mr. Clean snd the Man From Glad Fanny Kinkbaum (Cheryl Luco) entrapped by Karl Meilke mendaciously mon- stering as Murgatroyd Mur- ton. Excellent costumes by Elizabeth Robison and strong support in the accompaniment by Myrna Reid were other plus factors in this joyful romp. From dastardly demon drink to the final flinging clinch, the players were lock- ed in honest happy laughter. And this was what colored the entire evening, an affec- tionate warmth generated to his actors by director Frank Featherstone and realyed to those in the audience. Tonight the festival contin- ues with the Big Band. Oh What a Lovely War, directed by Bick Mells, will be staged Friday and Saturday with an interlude of Theatre for Chil- dren by Lethbridge Youth Thcaue oaiuruay morning.

Phil Bowling, vice chair- man of the provincial En- vironment Conssrvation Au- thority, told a dozen persons at a Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce meeting that the authority needs public par- ticipation if it is going to per- form its tasks. "Public participation in all matters concern ing environ- ment conservation is the very food on which the authority he said. "We cannot perform our .assigned tasks without your help. Ws have not come to tell you what we are going to do but rather to have you tell us what you think your gov- ernment should do on your behalf. "We have come to realize that our own habitat, the world in which we live, can- not be fouled and destroyed, or man himself will become an endangered species." The increasing population growth, throughout the world, Mr. Bowling said, forecasts a heavy demand for all "non- renewable" resources to the point that it is possible to forecast total consumption of such resources, especially these related to energy use. World demand on "renew- able" resources, he warned, could result in depletion of certain resources, leaving a serious shortage. He said that while a course of fullest exploitation is no longer being pursued, "we also cannot follow the road to total preservation. Our name is Environmental Conserva- tion Authority not Environ- mental Preservation Author- aty, although we are trying to preserve the human race." It is still not too late to grasp control, said Mr. Bow- ling. It is "not too late to con- serve the beauty, health and style cf living of this great province." He suggested a happy me- dium has to be reached be- tween resource development, land use and conservation. Residents of this area can help by addressing the au- thority at public hearings in dhe district in June. The four-man Environment Conservation Authority, or- ganized in 1970, is responsible for conducting a continuing review of policies and pro- grams of government agen- cies on matters of environ- ment conservation, said Mr. Bowling. It inquires into any matter in tha province pertaining to environ m e n t conservation, holds public hearings to re- ceive briefs and submissions on environment conservation and tries to achieve co- ordination of policy, pro- grams and administrative procedures of the government and between government agencies. The authority operates in- of the department of the environment. It recom- mends policy by involving public participation. The gov- ernment establishes policy through debate and legisla- tion and the department of the environment administers the legislation by regulation. To date the authority has examined the impact of sur- face mining on the environ- ment, the conservation of his- torical and archeological re- sources and the environmen- BERGMAN'S FLOOR COVERINGS Custom Installations Ph. 328-0372 2716 12 Ave. S.

Several multi million dollar commercial projects are pro- posed for the area. City offers old warehouse The city- owned former Eaton's warehouse at 324 4th St. S. is to be offered to the Native Friendship Society for use as a centre. The surprise move which may end the society's long and frustrating search for a new home came Wednesday as the Municipal Planning Commission debated an ap- plication by the society to es- tablish its centre in a two- storey house at 820 6th Ave. S. City officials and the Friendship Society executive were to tour the vacant ware- house today to see if it will be suitable and what renova- tions will be required. An application would then go before the planning com- mission next Wednesday. In many ways Wednesday's hearing of the Friendship So- ciety's application for a cen- tre at the 6th Avenue S. ad- dress typified the problems faced by the native group. Three people including two residents of the area showed up to speak against the ap- plication, voicing fears it would lower their property values and that drunken In- dians looking for the centre would be knocking on their doors late at nieht. One man said he had worked at an office in Oal- gary next to the friendship centre there and the police were there every day. They didn't appear pla- cated when they were told the centre would normally only be open from 9 a.m. to p.m. except for evening meetings three or four times a week and that there was no intention to use it for over- night accommodation. Mayor Andy Anderson said no one needed to sell him on the need for a centre and added: "We have some ob- ligations to get space for them to operate." He said he doubted, how- ever, that the house on 6th Avenue would be large enough and suggested that maybe one or two other lo- cations could be looked at. The mayor apparently then brought up the Eaton's ware- house suggestion in the closed part of the MFC meeting, re- sulting in the 6th Avenue ap- plication being tabled and the offer made to the society to use the vacant warehouse.
