Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - November 1, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 - THE UTHBP.IDGE HERAID - Monday, November 1, 1971 fiahistax Are you America Rock Opera Company gets it together at Jesus Christ Superstar concert. Jesus Christ, Superstar draws 2,000 end of farms? The federal government'? proposed tax legation could mean an end to the family farm, according to Tom Gilchrist, president of Use Western Stock Grower's Association. He said it is extraordinary that both the federal and provincial governments should make so much noise about preserving the family farm, even implementing schemes to do so. and then should bring in legislation which will make it almost impossible for farming enterprises to pass from one generation to the nest. "We do not oppose the principle of a capital gains tax. but we do feel that it should be levied in such a way that the farm does not have to be sold to pay it off." he said. He said it is obvious the government has taken into account the specific problems of such segments as oil and gas industries in drawing up the legislation. Government has not done the same for farmers who are almost unique in that they operate high-investment, low-return enterprises. Mr. Gilchrist said such enterprises axe the worst-hit by capital gams tax in that they are affected greatly by inflation but they have little income to pay off the resultant high taxes comsn This every Miblici: column is published Monday to provide y for ' youth group meetings and ouiinp*.

The occasion was the Lethbridge premiere of Jesus Christ, Superstar, an event that drew only a smattering of the over-30 set. Like the rock-opera version that opened recently in New York, the local concert drew the disapproval of some religious groups. Several were represented outside the pavilion. Their basic complaint, as one of them put it, was that the production was a desecration of the original Biblical texts. Most of those entering the pavilion paid little attention to the protesters. A few accepted the religious tracts being handed out; most of these ended up on the floor inside. The concert itself was a model of decorum. Anyone expecting an orgiastic outburst of modern - day religious fervor would have gone home disappointed. If there was any marijuana (thought to be an essential ingredient at any rock concert) the smell was overpowered by generally they came through well enough so that the performers 'especially at the end) were sole to capitalize on the drama contained in the story of Christ's last days on earth. Special accolades to drummer Tom Doran, who was a complete and utter joy throughout. timer like the concert? All in all, not bad. The first half was a pleasant mixture of popular songs that was easy to take, if not exciting. Both it and the Superstar excerpts suffered from the difficulties inherent in trying to combine two musical idioms. Composers have been trying for years to mix jazz and classical music, with only qualified j' _ _ . success. The rock - classics i liere iNoV. 6 amalgam in Superstar comes j Princess Pats military band off as well as most attempts with jazz have in the past. The Privilege by itself worked together beautifully; the interludes by the Calgary Symphony provided depth and balance. But when the two tried to work together things bogged down. The main problem seems to be that symphony orchestras just don't swing that much. Put them into a rock or jazz idiom amd the result is often cumbersome. On the plus side. - the entire concert had more than enough of an essential ingredient, ir.usi- One of Canada's best military bands, the band of the Princess Patricia Canadian Light Infantry of Calgary will present a kaleidoscope of music here Nov. 6. The program in the Lethbridge Civic Centre starting at 3 p.m., will be non-military in content featuring music designed to appeal to all age groups. There will be no charge. The colorful 60-piece band recently returned from Europe, where it performed for Canadian troops in Germany and the Canadian peace-keeping force in Cyprus. From the younger point of j view, the symphony-rock con-I cert was moving. The America I Rock Opera Company and the ! Calgary Symphony malted to-; gtther under conducting by ! by Gary Dere to make a sound that was new, different and pleasing. The America Rock Opera Company put meaning and voice into Jesus Christ, Superstar, but many words sung were missed because of distortion in the microphone system. Mel Degen put feeling into his whole body moved along with the beat of the music. Ian McLean in the role of Pontius Pilot, along with Evelyn Quaife in the role of Mary Magdalene stirred the crowd to applause when they did their so'o parts in the opera. Jesus Christ, Superstar told of Christ's last days on earth in a new way which generated feeling and a new life to the story which has far too often been told too seriously to really generate a happiness which belongs with it Possibly those who were picketing the pavilion should have been inside. No matter what the beliefs of the performers are, the opera told a moving story of Christ's last days. The crowd gave the performers a standing ovation and showed their involvement with those on the stage as they milled from their seats to the front of the stage, clapping to Higher and Higher. The America Rock Opera Company was pleased with the response from the people of Lethbridge. Andy Krawchuk. leader of the Privilege, said that they would be staying in western Canada for a while longer before going on their Australian tour.

The capacity of the plant will be increased to 1,000 tons or 40.-000 bushels per day. from the present 500 tons or 20,000 bushels per day. Western Canadian Seed Dro-cessors is a fully - integrated seed receiving, cleaning and crushing plant which produces oil and meal from oil seed crops for domestic and export markets. It is the second-largest purchaser of Canadian rapeseed. Hugh Michael, president of WCSP. said the expansion program is designed with the future in mind, looking for further expansion as the demand requires. The largest piece of equipment to be installed is a new solvent extractor which has a capacity of 2,000 tons per day. The company is adding auxiliary equipment in this area of the plant to gradually bring the total capacity of the plant up to the 1,000 tons per day goal. Mr. Michael said $500,000 has Mr. Michael said the increased capacity of the plant will have a definite affect on the rapeseed industry in southern Alberta. "The plant operates 26 days per month during the year and with the expansion, the number of bushels of rapeseed will have to be increased to about one million per month," he said. "This means a production of 10 to 12 million bushels a year, and also an increase to 600,000 acres from 3C0.000 acres t o meet the new requirements of the plant." He said it looks like most of the increased acreage can be contracted from Calgary south to the U.S. border or, more likely, from Red Deer south. This means better conditions for both the processor and the grower because it keeps the transportation costs to a minimum, he said. Mr. Michael said the plank will begin to increase the production of crude oils while continuing to sell meal products. Lethbridge Garrisons' Officers Mess Nov. 6 in the Lethbridge armory at Kenyon Field. The occasion will be marked by a visit by Maj.-Gen. W. A. Howard of Calgary, senior militia adviser in Canada; Brig.-Gen. C. J. A. Hamilton, commander of No. 1 Combat Group, and Brig.-Gen. J. L. Summers, commander of the Prairie Region of the Canadian Armed Forces. The Lethbridge militia situation, marked in recent years by forced stand-downs of three or four units, will be aired by civilians as well as military officers. Before the cutback in late Brig.-Gen. J. S. Stewart first raised an artillery unit. It subsequently grew to the 18th Field Artillery Regiment, 33rd Field Engineer Squadron and headquarters and the 32nd Technical Squadron and headquarters. Present strength is confined to the 20th Independent Field Batten'. Col. Fred T. King, honorary colonel of the battery, said invitations had been sent to citizens as well as military' officers to attend the dinner at which the Lethbridge situation will be given a thorough airing in hopes of creating a better liaison between the community and the militia.
