Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 29, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE IFfHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, May 29, 1970 By JOAN BOWMAN Herald Staff Writer Rev. Ron Johnstone, minis- ter of Coaldalc United Church, is to present a study on the southern Alberta beet labor situation at the annual meet- ing this week in Calgary of the Alberta United Church Coher- ence. Mr. Johnstone, mayor of Coal- dale, drove 250 miles last week compiling five hours of taped interviews with beet farmers and workers, imc! amassing a layout of 40 photographs. The photographs, taken in the Coaldale and Iron Springs areas, show the interiors and ALL SYSTEMS 'GO' FOR SUMMER-Program registra- tion began Thursday for the Community Summer Program, sponsored by the city's parks and recreation department, Ihe YMCA, YWCA and the lethbridge Community Col- lege.

Registration continues Saturday, Monday and Tuesday, at the Votes Memorial Centre. Pleasing Concert By Youth Symphony By HENRY WAACK The Lethbridge Symphony Youth Orchestra conducted by Malcolm MacDonald gave a very satisfying and pleasing performance at the Yates Cen- tre Thursday evening. One does not look for a b s o 1 u t ely polished playing from a student orchestra, but rather for musical promise. This ingredient was there in abundance, and many of the young players are already on tfaeir way io becoming fine mu- sicians. There was great variety in the program, which featured four soloists, a brass ensemble, a clarinet quintet, plus many selections by the orchestra. The concert did become rather Mr. MacDonald was able to maintain good rhythmic unity within the orchestra. Most of the sectional playing is well- tuned, but the full orchestra must keep striving for a better blend. Intonation was variable. It held up well in the first half, bat near the end some of the young players obviously tired and intonation suffered. The orchestra showed to its The LARGEST ASSORTMENT of imported styles in LETHBRIDGE! best advantage in the opening works by Mendelssohn, Haydn and Bach, though the Bach In- vention something when transcribed for orchestra. Orchestra member Dean Ta- kahashi conducted one number in the iast hall' in creditable fashion. Two clever popular arrangements were also play- ed with gusto. However, a maudlin arrange- ment of an endless medley of popular tunes could easily have been omitted. The brass ensemble conduct- ed by Robert Hall produced some fine sound, especially in the Furcsll Voluntary. The clarinet ensemble play- EDC Seminar Is Planned The Economic Development Commission in Lethbridge will sponsor a seminar on govern- ment aid anrl incentives to de- velopers, near the end of Sep- tember. The proposal for thte seminar was presented Thursday to Dennis: O'Connell, director of the EDC, by Al Stubbs, region- al incentives officer for West- era Canada with the depart- ment of regional economic ex- pansion.

It was well played with a fine bal- ance between parts. Violin soloist Valerie Hor- vath had a sweet tone and a promising .technique. She gave a musical performance, de- spite an over-use of a sliding technique to get from note to note. She was ably accom- panied by Edward Gnandt. Clarinet soloist Peggy Foster played in ter usual fluid and controlled manner. If she con- tinues to work she has every chance of becoming a truly fine artist. Beatrice Foster pro- vided a sensitive accompani- ment. Kerry MacDonald, cello solo- ist, Is also well on the way. He has a singing tone, good phras- ing and is careful with dynam- ics. Guest artist, soprano Donna MacDonald, sang a Mozart aria and I Feel Pretty from West Side Story. Mrs. MacDonald has a clear soprano voice and captured the essence of both songs, tough the Mozart was done with a little more finesse and artistry. Henry Waack ac- companied both Donna and Kerry MacDonald. I commend Malcolm Mac- Donald and the Youth Orches- tra for a very solid1 effort. Young players must be contin- ually developed1 if a senior symphony is to survive.

The production 'distorted suggested child labor was used, wages were below the minimum wage level and facilities were In poor condition.
