"The Pioneer and Leading Retail Shop In Lethbridge" FINEST QUALITY PASTRY AND BAKERY PRODUCTS Agri-education branch busy place By RIC SWIHART Staff Writer The extension division is the only area of service of the Alberta department of agriculture to have full - Lime staff at the district level, and essentially it is designed to help people help themselves. John Calpas, director for the Lethbridge regional office of the extension division, said the division is the department of agriculture's "action arm" in the field. "The division assists farmers and home makers primarily, through teaching and demonstrating principles so that the individual clients are better equipped to make decisions for themselves," said Mr. Calpas. "Our function as district agriculturists and district home economists is to supply the latest information on management and technology so the individual has as much information on hand as he needs, to come up with a decision for himself. "The staff members are professional educators on a voluntary basis - the student doesnt have to come to him." He said the staff members play the role of consultants and interpreters on a broad spectrum of available information. "If we don't have the answer, it is expected we have the means of getting the answer �r can refer the individual to the right source for the information," he said. "But in most cases, the extension division has to wait for the research centres and other agencies to make recommendations or publish material so staff members can interpret it for the farmers and homemak-ers. "We use the research centres as backup sources of information to help farmers solve their problems." Mr. Calpas said all recommendations from the division are based on what is the optimum for the farmer. The farmer, because of a limited amount of money, time or knowledge and the added risk of weather and markets, may have to settle on an approach considerably less than optimum, if he does not use the services provided by the division, he said. University forced to cancel its young artists concert What are termed "severe budget restrictions" at the University of Lethbridge have resulted in cancellation of the music department's young artists' concert. A statement by Dean Blair, music department chairman, and Louisa Chapman, director of the university concert, series, says the department "had no alternative but to take this action under present governmental financial strictures." The statement adds that the department's prime responsibility must be to the curricular ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC Certified Dental Mechanic Metropolitan 8ldg. 328-4095 students. While the department has demonstrated its interest in supporting community musical activities, the present financial situation makes this impossible without cuts in its own instrue tional programs. Formerly a project of the Lethbridge Music Club, the young artists' concert was taken by the university last year as part of its concert ser ies. Auditions for Lethbridge and district music students under the age of 25 were to have been held Dec. 11 and the concert was scheduled for March 1. The concerts have been used as a way of allowing young soloists and small groups to gab experience in public performance and receive recognition.

At the first signs of an illness or when symptoms are recurring is the time to check with your physician. If you wait, what might be a simple Illness to cure, could develop into something serious. The same premise applies when it comes to having a prescription filled. Your doctor wants you to have the medicine he prescribes for an ailment used at once. That is when it can do the most good. Don't delay in bringing your pre* scription to the pharmacy of your choice. We recommend "FAMILY RECORD" for your pre-scription requirements.

Frosty's sporty straw hat blew off as he was flying in and five-year-old Penny Johnson of 971 12th A St. S. adjusts it for him. Although he is a friendly fellow, the general feeling is his stay should be a brief one.

Frank Besplug, Lethbridge CMC manager says, "our objective is to obtain workers from the nearest - possible source to reduce costs and avoid inconvenience and family adjustment problems." Much of CMC placement activity takes place between local workers and local employers. "Occasionally there arc no qualified local workers to fill local jobs so we must endeavor to recruit workers elsewhere through clearance," he said. "For the sake of speed, clearance is conducted primarily by telex." CMC's first avenue is the domestic clearance system which is conducted within Canadian boundaries.

Local Amchitlia campaign on L By mayoral proclamation Halloween was Saturday night in Lethbridge but apparently for many youths, Halloween wasn't at all. Of 20 persons interviewed only two reported visits from small trick-or-treaters which depleted their candy supplies. On the average, Lethbridge homes were visited by no more than 33 costumed imps per house. One home on the north side reported 140 small visitors, another in the same area reported 50. Visitations on the south side, especially in the Lakeview area were the quietest and fewest many residents can remember. The average number of children to visit a home did not exceed 30. Many children who did go Halloweening didn't keep much of their bounty. In one case a child, with the help of his moth-went through every thing he got and kept only the sealed and wrapped candy. He threw the others away because "they might have 'dope' in them." Many parents took their children to visit relatives or friends and neighbors in the immediate area and then home for a party. They were afraid to allow them to go from door to door by themselves, and were also afraid of what "treats" they might receive. City police and the RCMP report a very quiet Saturday evening, pranks-destructive or otherwise-either did not occur or were not reported. V'ith the exception of the local cabarets, costumed atten-dence at local bars was down from last year. Two couples interviewed as they visited bars in costume said the most fun of the evening was watching everyone else trying not to notice them. Many children Halloweened for UNICEF, but the amount of. money collected was not avail* able at press time. Library is busy Circulation figures for Leth-bridge's central library increased to 158,205 in 1970 from 72,016 in 1955. The figures are for adult books only, and do not include branch libraries. STRETCH STITCHES Canadians are usually characterized as being somewhat lethargic, or at the very least reticent about becoming involved in mass movements. Recent events surrounding the forthcoming nuclear blast at Amchitka Island would indicate the planned test has cut through the natural reluctance to cause a fuss. Two local citizens who planned a protest telegram to U.S. more support than they had anticipated. By Sunday evening they had gathered about 160 names of Lethbridge and district people who wanted to participate. Calls came from several towns in the area; one was even received from Calgary. Calls were still pouring in at 10:30 Sunday night, after the telegram had been sent. Those that called after the deadline are being referred to a second organizer, who is sending names to Charles Templeton in Toronto; Mr. Templeton and Pierre Berton are sending their telegram to-moi-row morning. Persons wanting their names added to the protest may contact 327-2391. Calls must be made by this evening. Mr. Templeton may be contacted directly at 247 Davenport Road in Toronto. NINE COUNSELLORS There are nine full-time counsellors in the Lethbridge public school system, including one counsellor in the elementary schools. Singers9 tour firming up Plans are moving ahead for next summer's tour of Great Britain and Europe by the Anne Campbell Singers. Mrs. Campbell reports the British part of the tour is now completely booked for the group's entire two-week stay. The singers will visit Manchester, Glasgow, Cardiff and Rhonda in Wales and will also sing in the Bath Festival. To date the only definite stop on tho continent is Heidelberg. Mrs. Campbell is looking for other centres that could be incorporated into the two-week tour of the continent. She has asked that anyone knowing peoplo in Europe who might be able to help arrange concerts contact her. CONTACT LENSES There are new soft, supple contact lenses available soon in Lethbridge.
