THE UTHBRIDCE HERAID Thursday, May 31, 1973 Disappearing scene Apprenended in the door way of an old cabin, a sta-nds up under the endless prairie sky. Sights of the pioneer West like this one south of Vulcan are fast disappearing.

"There was no difference made by the other 21 chil- dren in the class of these children. Each was accepted as an individual and all were eager to help them in any way.'1 The pre school sessions w-ere held in the Galbraith School under the sponsorship of the provincial government and the City of Lethbridge. It was the first year that pre schoolers having a men- tal handicap were involved in the preschool project. Malcolm Jeffreys, execu- director of the associa- tion, told The Herald the or- ganization intends to develop more programs in the near future to further integrate t h e mentally handicapped wKh the rest of society. Presentations were mace at the annual meeting to three Lethbridge people for their services rendered to the mentally handicapped in the past. Adrianna Mol received an engraved tray and George Mol received a cheque. Both are teachers at the Dorothy Gooder School for the men- tally retarded.

Mr. Jeffreys, speaking at the meeting, thanked all ser- vice clubs, lodges, church groups, and private individ- uals who have made gener- ous donations to the associa- tion ever the past year. "Without them this associa- tion would not be able to carry on its he said. SUSPENSION PAYS OFF By WARREN CARAGATA Herald Staff Writer A man who three months ago had his driver's licence suspended for 24 hours has written a letUr to city po- lice Chief Ralph Michelson in wppcrt of the policy. The letter, dated May 9, was placed before the April meeting of the Lethbridge Po- lice Commission Thursday and states: more I think about it, the better I think this whole program is." The man, whose name was not released, goes to say that although at the time of the suspension, he didn't think his b'ood-alcohol level above the legal limit of "I was not confident enough to risk taking t h e test and suffer- ing a heavy penalty." Taking a breathalyzer test is the only way to appeal the roadside suspension, which can be enforced if a police- man suspects a driver of im- pairment. "Having lost this licence for a day made me realize how dependent I am upon it, ?nd of haw much value it is to the latter states. "Taking the above into con- sideration I have reassessed rnv attitudes on drinking and driving and have exercised much more caution these past few weeks. don't know who initiated this program but I would certainly like to extend my cppreciation to whoever in- stigated the man says. Since ths police force be- gin issuing the 24-hour suspensions, there has been general decline in the num- ber of traffic accidents. How- ever, police commission rransbor MaeLean said Thursday It is still too early to accurately tell if the policy is having the desired effect. 'Policy needed to manage sufficient energy here' By ANDY OGLE Herald Staff Writer Alberta has sufficient ener- gy resources to take care of its needs for the foreseeable future, the head of the Asso- ciation of Professional Engin- eers, Geologists and Geophys- icUts of Alberta said in Leth- bridge Wednesday. But that doesn't mean we Shouldn't study the energy problem and be sure we have a policy that meets our needs and that of all Canadians, said R. A. Hemstock. R. A. HEMSTOCK Drug case to June 8 A 29-year-old Lethbridge man charged in December of 1971 with trafficking in LSD was remanded Thursday to June 8. Gerald Wayne Deal, who last year had pleaded not guilty to the charge, was giv- en the remand to allow his lawyer time to bring in a character witness from B.C. to testify on Deal's behalf. Last year, while on bail, Deal did not appear for a scheduled court appear- ance and was arrested Slay 18. 1973 in Terrace B.C. A 21-year-old Lethbridge man pleaded not guilty Thurs- day to a charge that on May 14 he obstructed a police of- ficer. Frederick M. J. Johnson, of 1214 9th Ave. N., will be tried June 13 on a charge that ha interferred with city police Const. Michael Soroka. He said it is net a matter of hydrocarbon fuel shortage in Canada, but a matter cf developing fuels a: a rate that will be to the best ad- vantage of Canadians. The energy crisis is a vein- complex problem, Mr. Hem- stock said, that even people close to it don't necessarily agree on. Incoming president of the association. Ron Daiby said the current shortage in the United States is misunder- stood in many respects. Part of the problem, said Dalby, lies in not having sufficient refinery capacity. This has occurred because of the inability to get clear- ance for refinery sites broucht on by environmental protests, he said. Mr. Hemstock said as many as five to 10 years ago. ex- perts were predicting an en- ergy shortage, but no one wa.i listening. "The public has to be squeezed bef-i e it becomes fully aware of a he said. Beth engineers agreed that the profession has had to undergo a definite change cf attitude in the last 10 years or so to take the environmen- tal aspects of engineering into account. A balance must be struck between resource develop- ment and environmental pro- tection, they said, and it must be accepted the benefit from these resources can't be real- ized without paying some pen- alty. The engineer, by the nature of his training, can evaluate the trade-off perhaps better than meat professionals. Mr. Hemstock said. The public is more willing to pay for environmental pro- tection today and engineers have a responsibility to let people know what the en- vironment costs are, he said. The APEGGA conference which began today will focus on Alberta's resources, both no j renewable minerals, oil and gas and renewable water, agriculture forestry in public sessions Friday. It's only the second time the association has had a part of its annual meeting open to the public a ses- sion with well-known Amsri- can pop-sociologist Vance Packard on urban problems at the meeting last year in Edmonton was the first a nwve which Mr. Hemstock described as a good msars of keeping in touch with the pub- lic. Mr. Hemstock said that while he expects the resource discussions to rtick pretty much to an engineering point of view, they could get into socio-economic issues since the topic is so political these riavs. Mosquito control begins, but problem is minimal A dry spring has kept the mosquito problem to a tran- mum in Lethbridge and en- so far this year. As a result, spraying ations which normally get underway around the tirsl of April began only last week- end. Medical health officer at the city health unit. Dr. Ai- dan Byrne the only sig- nificant mosquito breeding to date has occurred in iirigat- cd areas These were sprayed weekend and will be ed once a week from now until at least September with fuel oil and the insecticide Malathion. The insecticide is used in a concentration ot only one-half of a per cent and kills the mosquito in the pupa stage v.hile the fuel oil spreads over the siiifacc cf the water and suifccates the mosquito larvae.
