The veterans of the two great wars and the families of those didn't come home joined together to pay homage to those who suffered in the name of freedom. Many took part in the parade, under fog shrouded skies and chilly temperatures which lent mood to the solemn occasion. Many more attended the re- membrance ceremony in the Civic Sports Centre and still more met at the Cenotaph in Gait Gardens lor the wreath- laying ceremony and the tradi- tional two minute silence at II a.m. Rev. Keith Churchill of the First Baptist Church told the congregation at the Civic Sports Centre that "as we re- call the sacrifices and the ter- ribleness of war we honor those lives who have given their by praying lor those things which will peace.' Capt. Hon Butcher, Salvation Army Chaplain in Lethbridge, said Remembrance Day ex- tends down farther and reaches up higher than a parade and wreath laying ceremony. In a religiously -based ad- dress, Capt. Butcher said any attempt to overthrow a democ- racy always starts with an at- tempt to overthrow God. "Kill God and you kill the he said. Nations first decay from within before can be over- thrown from without, he added. Capt. Butcher said Cana- dians must strive to maintain their democratic freedoms of speech, worship and freedom of the press because it was the desire for freedom which claimed the lives of so many people in the two great wars. Lieut. Col. Don Livingstone echoed his sentiments in his give us I address at the Cenotaph Gait Gardens. "The torch was thrown to us, and we must hold it he said. "A hollow thank you means nothing without an ef- fort on our part. "We must dedicate ourselves to the principles of those who fought and died. Today must not be only a day of remem- brance, but a day of reassess- ment and rededication. "The enemies of freedom are harder to identify and isolate said Lieut. Col Liv- ingstone. "They are those who deride the upholding of high moral standards." He said, the Ideals of those who fought could survive by being taught in the homes and upheld in society. Wreaths were placed at the cenotaph during the service on behalf of the federal and pro- vincial governments, the city, various service clubs, and in-1 dividuals. Effie MacAulayi placed the wreath on behalf of all bereaved mothers. Master of ceremonies was Bill Kergan, past president of the Royal Canadian Legion. The hymns and national an- thems were played by the Frank Hosek Concert March, ing Band, conducted by R. N. Hall. The last post and reveille were played by Vince Ditrich. The firing party was the 20th Independent Battery, and the fly past was performed by the Lethbridge Flying Club.

Year's fish population destroyed Creek pollution charge costs mining firm By LARRY BENNETT Herald Staff Writer PIKCHER CREEK Cole- man Colleries Ltd. of ColemaD has been fined for dis- charging a pollutant into the Crowsnest Creek. The conviction came Friday in Pincher Creek court. Judge L. B. Levine gave the company one month to pay the fine. The court action stemmed from a landslide and snow- slide in June which saw coal and other material pushed into the creek. The company had been strip mining for coal on Tent Moun- tain, south of Crowsnest Pass Lake between August, 1971 and June, 1972. The court decision followed a trial in Blairmore Oct. 5. Evidence heard during the trial included testimony from Dwayne Radford, regional fish- eries biologist, who told the court at least one year's popu- lation of rainbow and cutthroat trout and rocky mountain whitefish had been destroyed by heavy siltation. FISH KILLED Another Fish and Wildlife of- ficer, following the decision, told The Herald heavy sijtation destroys a fish population by killing natural food and plant life, filling the gills of fish so they cannot function or by irri- tating the gill fibers so they can no longer function. In rendering his judgment Judge Levine said It should have been obvious to any rea- sonable person that the man- ner in which tailings from the ship mining operation had been piled would result In a slide as weather conditions warmed. Evidence presented to the court by employees of Colemen Collieries indicated the tailings had been pushed to the edge of a ravine and allowed to ac- cumulate on top of an unusual- ly deep snowfall. When the snow melted the excess debris slid into the creek. A Fish and Wildlife officer told The Herald that shortly following the slide in June the water in the creek was so heavy with silt that the tips of his fingers were invisible by the time his hand was inserted to the depth of his palm. "The damage for this year has already been done, but it is impossible to tell how much longer the fish population of the stream will be affected by the continued flow of silt from possible additional slides as well as the current slide he said. In setting the fine for the offence, which carries a maximum fine of Judge Levine said "It is apparent someone did make a mistake and I assume more care will be taken in the future." Police advice sought 'Pof in hospital problem for board Hospitals aod drugs don't al ways go together. The St. Michael's General Hospital board was told Friday night that there have been a' least two cases recently of pa tients smoking "pot" in the hos pital. Doctors at the hospital have expressed some concern aboui whether they should attempt to handle thj incidents themselves or whether the police should be notified. Judge Frank Byrne, board chairman, said hospitals really don't have much choice. "You just can't leave a per- son with he said. "If you know about it, you have to report it." LIABILITY There was also some concern expressed about whether hospi- tal officials or doctors might be liable for prosecution if they knew a patient was taking il- legal dnigs and did not report it.

AGENTS FOR ALLIED VAN LINES feels that Remembrance Day will survive, but only through the efforts of a few. "Most people don't care. Or maybe they do, down inside, but they don't show it. Kids my age wouldn't go to the ceremon- ies unless their parents made them." Folk institution Pam felt that much more could be accomplished towards getting young people to under- stand Remembrance Day by letting them discuss it rather than just attend church cere- monies. "Tilings like that are all riaht for people who remember tlie war or who had close relatives who died. "But like assemblies don't mean iinylliing to kids. II there was something different about it, it would probably lie interesting. But every Remem- brance Day assembly to kids is just the same old tiling. "It would be good if we could find out more than we know now. Most of us don't know very much about it." To speak here Dr. Robert E. Vandorvcniicii, former dean of Trimly College in Chicago, will spcnkon Thurs- day November 16 at the Jm- manucl Christ inn School. Dr. Vandcrveimen is in the midst of a lour through Alberta giving lectures on the idea of estah- ishing a community college in Mhcrla where teaching and earning is from B Christian icrspccLivc. Pam felt that the day had a different meaning for every- one, whether they felt It per- sonally or as a tribute to the dead. "I think it's good to re- member those who fought for she said. Mike Robinson, 24 said in an interview he feels Remem- brance Day, war and "the Am- erican hero" have been so ro- manticized that there is little real meaning left to any of them. "Remembrance Day Is just another folk institution, like Halloween. It's a celebration in honor of war. People are con- ditioned into accepting it. "It's hard to consider what people went through when you have no experience with it I can sympathize with them, but that's limited; I can't share their grief. "The people died because of he said- "War is indica- tive of ignorance and collec- tive stupidity. People should limit their war games to play- in" chess." Lloyd Masson, 51, served in the Second World War and has seven medals to remember it by. Remembrance Day was not for people like himself, he said. Think of others "They can forget me. I've done my job, I've come home and I'm nhve and normal. It's those who didn't come back who shouldn't be forgotten. And there are lots of them over there." He felt that young people didn't realize the meaning of Remembrance D a y, because the reason for it all happened "many years ago." "We should take a few hours to think of someone besides our- selves. We might not be where we are today, or have the things we do, if men hadn't died. "Remembrance Day is impor- tant, it should have more sup- port. If we thought more of the dead, maybe we wouldn't have wars." Mr. Masson said he thought that Remembrance Day would die out once the veterans no longer organized it. Wars inevitable "But there will always be wars, little ones. There are too many agitators to let two coun- ries agree, too many people who make money from war. A big war would be a lot worse now than any we've had. We wouldn't have to worry about Remembrance Day then." Charles Linn is a veteran of ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC Schwartz Sldg. S22 5lh St. S.

The board decided that the hospital administration should contact the Lethbridge city pol- ice to seek advice on the mat- ter. SMUGGLING The drugs are apparently smuggled into ihe hospital by a friend of a patient and tlieii the patient "smokes up" at his lei- sure in a hospital washroom It was also reported that a meeting was held recently aim- ed at organizing an effective home care program in Leth- bridge. The "exploratory" meeting involved the city community services department, Victorian Order of Nurses, Family Ser- vice, Meals on Wheels and members of the medical staffs ami administrations of the two hospitals. SHORTEN STAY The purpose of the new pro- gram would be to shorten the hospital stay by allowing pa- tients to return home for part of the recovery period but still receive organized supervision. The vaious groups involved ate now working on a survey to determine the need for such a service and a report is ex- pected to be submitted to the provincial government with the hope of getting funds to estab- lish a home care program.
