Find Out In The Herald's Next "CHINOOK" INCLUDED WITH THE TUESDAY, NOV. 14, liSUI OF THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD The United Appeal 'Its alternative is canvassers at your door every two weeks. By JOE MA Herald Stair Writer With returns reaching more than and some ahead of last year's campaign to date, Community Chest offi- cials are optimistic the 1972 Lethbridge United Appeal will succeed. Although no objective is set this year, The Herald has learn- ed last year's total of must be reached in orde- to meet the financial requirements of the United Appeal's 15 mem- ber agencies. Failure to do so may force eomc agencies to withdraw and conduct fund-raising campaigns on their own. "I think we will have no prob- lem in getting at least last year's said Allan Pur- vis, assistant executive direc- tor of the Community Chest. The United Appeal used to have 16 member agencies, but the Canadian Mental Health As- sociation withdrew from it shortly before this year's cam- paicn was kicked off Sept. IB. The reason given lor its with- drawal was that the United Ap- peal campaign, which failed to reach its objective in the past three years, could not promise the CMHA the money it want- ed. At least two other agencies St. John Ambulance and Salva- lion Army have considered withdrawing should this year's campaign fail again. "If we do withdraw, it would only be a last a St. John spokesman said. "We know the public will be incon- venienced if we canvass on our own, but our survival depends on adequate funds." Most agencies Ihink they should slick to the United Ap- peal no-matter-what. Should slick "Not only will there be more canvassers at our citizens' doors, but also separate cam- paigns cost more money, since every agency will have to do its own a John How- a-d Society spokesman said. In fact, one of the United Ap- peal slogans is that it is the united canvass for 15 agencies and thus saves residents 14 oth- er calls. "We already have more than a different fund-raising cam- paign going every Mr. Purvis said. "If every agency canvasses on its own, Leth- bridge citizens can expect a can- vasser at the door every two weeks." Or.e of the messages which Mr. Purvis said Is difficult to get across is that "many people give every canvasser the same amount of money, not realizing is community choice' that we are canvassing for 1 agencies." Mr. Purvis emphasized, how ever, that the ahead last year did not necessaril mean the campaign would en up more. "It is just tha the returns are coming back little laster, and our canvasser must keep on with their job, he said. Leona Hopkins, chairman c the house-to-house campaign said the "last 20 or 25 per cen is most difficult to gel" anc urged Ihe canvassers to "clea up the calls as soon as poss: We."

Mr. Purvis, who will succeei Mr. Smith when he retires in January, said he is contem plating some changes, "includ ing a better record-keeping sys tern and earhe- when he takes over. One agency official, who die not wish to be identified, said there is no established dialogue belween the Community Ches and Ihe agencies regarding campaign strategy and the dis- tribution of funds. Mr. Purvis said that would be changed next year. Mr. Purvis said there is hard- ly anyone who will not benefit from the services by United Appeal agencies sooner or later and as such it should be sup- ported.

The announcement was prompted by a question earlier this week by John Anderson (SC Lethbridge East) who asked if the government was doing anything about com- plaints about the smell. "The plant is very old and will require considerable changes to meet our minimum standards and is operating without any approvals from the department at this the minister said reporting on in- vestigations by his department Sept. 20 and Oct. 31.
