Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 3, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta History Of City Magazine Subject Lethbridge-its history, what it is today and its future prospects, will be the topics of a 1.00-page glossy magazine to be published Jan. 4. The magazine will be called Inside Lethbridge, and is being privately produced by city commercial artist Harold Edwards with co-operation from the Economic Development Commission and other city officials. (Inside Lethbridge will be financed strictly through advertising and sales, and is receiving no grants from city or other sources). Contents will include a "then" section, describing the city's history, ranching development and various personalities,' written by southern Alberta historian Alex Johnston. A "now" section will include facts and figures concerning the Lethbridge eco n o m i c picture, information and statistics about the Municipal Planning Commission and Oldman River Re- gional Planning Commission; Educational facilities including schools, the university and college; recreational facilities, communications and transportation; a community calendar; manufacturing industry; food and food services industry; Lethbridge as a supply centre for southern Alberta. Lethbridge "soon" will describe new industries and potential industries; development opportunities; ORRPC and MPC master plans for city expansion; the effect of the Crows-nest Pass mineral and coal industries on city growth; and tomorrow's leaders. Current plans call for a circulation of 5,000 copies including over - the - counter sales. It will use many color and black and white photographs. Mr. Edwards hopes the magazine will become an annual publication, perhaps developing later into a quarterly. - Saturday, October 8, 1970 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - IS Bureau Visits Aided Family Susan is 25 and has two small children - one seriously asthmatic. Her husband doesn't earn enough to provide more than basic needs. At night he studies hard to further his education. He works hard but progress is slow, and he has little time for a normal home life. Susan, with the household duties and the strain of a sick child cotK-Jually draining her energies, became taut with nerves. She blamed her husband for their constant financial problems and her attitude precipitated many conflicts. Sensibly, however, Susan went to the Family Bureau for help. This is one of the United Appeal services invaluable in the community. Through counselling Susan was helped to a better understanding of her life. She became aware of her husband's need for support as he struggled to give them all a better fife. She saw his sacrifices and got a glimpse of the discipline he needed to keep him going. Involvement In Community A Major Aim Of jaycees School's Open Areas To Be In 'Use October 7 The Agnes Davidson Elementary School's open - area instruction addition will be officially opened Wednesday, Oct. 7 at 7:30 p.m. Combine Flax When Cool Officials at the Lethbridge research Station recommend that during unseasonably hot weather it is advisable to combine flax in the early morning or late evening. Apparently some problems have been encountered recently by farmers attempting to harvest flax during hot days. It seems static electricity builds up in the combine causing minute dust particles to cling to the flaxseeds, resulting in dirty and undesirable grain. Attempts to ground combines have proved fruitless, and the problem seems to revolve around temperature. Tests conducted on the station showed' that flax samples threshed at 95 degrees failed to clean properly and appeared to be similar to ones taken from the farms in question, 70 degrees provided acceptably clean seed, but the clean est was obtained from samples threshed at 36 degrees. Chairman for the ceremonies will be Davidson home and school president Ken Sutherland, and featured speakers will be Alastair Mont, chairman of the Lethbridge public school board, and Dr. O. P. Larson, public schools superintendent. Davidson principal Don Ha-gen will conduct a tour of the school and its new facilities, and explain the purposes of the new open area room - which is the equivalent of six classrooms blocked together without internal walls. The area also includes the school's library in one corner. "LIKE FRESH-CUT FLOWERS" - lethbridge's sewage plant has borrowed a trick from housewives. This apparatus atop the south-side plant works much like an aerosol spray can, de-odorizing (or at least masking) the aroma from the settling basins. There are two of these at the plant and another at the north-side works, all part of efforts to keep the air in the city as fresh as all outdoors.

Their work is printed in bulletin form by the department of natural resources of the State of Washington. By rtlC SWIHART I Herald Starr Writer TABER - Many problems in Canada today are fostered by a lack of involvement of young men in our country, says Stan Cramton, president of the Alberta and Northwest Territories Junior Chamber of Commerce. In an' interview here, Mr. Cramton said this is one of the services to the Canadian community the Jaycees are trying to provide - involvement of young men in the country at all levels, locally, provinciaUy, and federally. He said young men join the Jaycees because they feel it is an investment in their communities and their country. In the organiz a t i o n, men learn speaking, parliamentary procedure and involvement and then have the chance to put this training to use in the community. "Men are taught a lot of things in colleges but do not get the practical experience of how to get along," he said, "and this is where the Jaycees enter the picture. "The organization prov ides depth and experience at the grass roots level in the community and in all three levels of government." He said the enviable records of numerous former Jaycees, resulting from experience gained while a member of the organiz a t i o n, substantiates the claim. The organization has a good cross Canada communica t i o n system and a group of well established fellows who work together on problems. Two major problems in Canada today discussed at the recent national convention in Re-gina involved youth hostels and the drug question. We wanted to see if hostels are being run according to the general hostel idea and then proposed that they could be run according to a Canad i a n idea for Canada. At the same time her husband became aware of Susan's need for reassurance - her need to know she was important to him. In the months that followed counselling, Susan's life improved. Her husband made some headway in his job, the future looked brighter for the whole family. Through funds made available through the United Appeal, the Family Bureau was able to help this young family over a very difficult time. This was just one of many local families hcJped by the Family Bureau. On the drug question, we felt legalizing marijuana at this time was premature," he said, "and felt government should do more research." He said an interesting note was the similarity of the Jaycees report on legalization of marijuana with the report submitted by the provincial attor-neyjgeneral. Similar to the national picture, the organization has had some difficulties with separatism of the Quebec unit. He said the Quebec unit had wanted to form ties with interna^ tional groups and even went as far as to break away from the Canadian federal unit. The Canadian Jaycees are now back to normal, since the return of the Montreal Junior Board of Trade. He said the Lethbridge unit is respected as highly as any provincial unit. "The Pedal Pushers bicycle and safety program sponsored by the Lethbridge Jaycees has been well received and is filling a need in the community."
