Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 9, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE LETHBRIOGi HIKALD Friday, October 1970 Hearing Adjourns On Waste Disposal PINCHER CREEK (Special) -An Alberta Oil and Gas Con- servation Board hearing in Pincher Creek Thursday ad- journed after about 30 local residents had been assured the board would giro careful con- sideration to all aspects of a request by Gulf Oil Canada Ltd. for underground disposal of salt water wastes without limitation on volume. The waste material is a by- product of Gulf's Pincher Creek gas processing plant and three oil fields in the area. Gulf personnel presented a technical report showing how disposal of the waste could be safely achieved at depths of about feet below sea level in wells in the area. Six Pincher Creek area resi- dents also made submissions, all rejecting toe proposed dis- system. Gulf representatives made no direct rebuttal to the submis- sions. There has been concern on the part of area residents on the possible ollution of the dis- trict because of Gulf's waste disposal methods. Overture Concert Series Struggles For Memberships By JOAN BOWMAN Herald Staff Writer Lethbridge may be shown up this year by the small North- west Territories town of Inuvik in their comparative responses to the Overture Concert Series. Anthony Clarke, western field representative of the series, says Inuvik, with a population of has a 1970-71 mem- bership of 350. Were the same percentage of Lethbridge's residents in- terested in the series, about people would be hounding Overture's executive director George Zukerman for tickets to the current season's four con- certs. "But we'll be lucky if we get 400 in Mr. Clarke said. About 450 members are needed to hit the break-even point in the city. The concert series was found- ed 14 years ago by Mr. Zuker- man, a bassoonist with a. top international reputation. The series is represented at present in 50 Canadian centres, all of them in Ontario or west of On- tario. Mr. Clarke is in the city this week to direct the Lethbridge ticket campaign, with head- quarters in the Yates Memori- al Centre. This year's schedule features the Canadian Opera Company's production of Orpheus in the Underworld, and recitals by renowned soprano Teresa Stra- tas, the Iowa String Quartet and Canadian duo-pianists Bec- kett and McDonald. Mr. Clarke, one of three over- ture field representatives, has been connected with various arts groups in Canada during the 15 years he has been here. He was born in London, Eng- land. It is Mr. Clarke's contention that Canadian performers, rec- ognized internationally, "are tops." "They are direct and cut out the garbage. They have no class consciousness." He said tenor Jon Vickers boasts of having been born in a small Saskatchewan town. "I doubt if any European artist would lay claim to such hum. ble beginnings." But Canadian talent is "vast- ly unpublicized" and under-sub- sidized. "Gordon Lightfoot is superior to Glen Campbell, but Lightfoot doesn't get the same publicity, doesn't have the same publicity machine behind him." And Alberta, as one example, "is very niggardly in backing the arts financially." The Calgary and Edmonton symphonies receive year between them; Quebe gives to a single orches tra. But Mr. Clarke also said A! terta would be better off Wit fully professional majo symphony instead of the pres ent two groups of lesser light "They're a waste of money But politically, the province daren't let one- go." Meanwhile, the Overture Concert Series is looking Lethbridge to fill the 500-sea Yates for the series' schedule of international stars. Inuvik indeed. LAST WALK IN AUTUMN Whittier said, "We know not how in other lends, the changing seasons come and go." But in Western Canada, autumn has already put away her gaudy fall dress, and preparations are being made to welcome in the snowy season of winter. REA Okays Power Plan PEEK FOR PRIZES By HERB JOHNSON Herald Staff Writer CARDSTON The Chief Mountain Rural Electrification Association, meeting in Card- ston Thursday, voted to accepl a 12-poiflt proposal from Cal- gary Power Ltd. The proposal, involving changes in the rate structure but no increase in the actual Calgary Power rate or revenue, has now been approved by 14 out of the 16 REAs in the Southern Alberta division to which it has been presented. There are 33 REAs in the divi- sion. The program, which Calgary Power is presenting to the 216 REAs which it serves, will re- sult in somewhat higher costs to the farm operations using the service. The extra money will remain to the REA accounts, helping to offset recent deficits in oper- ating accounts. The proposal also introduces a new "pay as you go" method of purchasing new transformers. Thursday's meeting, In eon- irast to some at which the pro- posals have been presented, was quiet and orderly. Letters from Paul Babey, of Unifarm, and from he Alberta Union of REAs, Joth urging the members not to accept the proposals were read at the beginning 0{ the meeting. Neither became a major wint of contention as the meet- ing progressed. The letter from.

LETHBRIDGE PHONE 327-1310 (hough public ownership of the utility, that costs of power should be defined by statute, that the Alberta Power Com- mission be abolished and that a central body be established to protect the consumer. Only one of these was alluded to later in the meeting. One member asked to have Mr. Babey's views on public power clarified. This being done from the letter, he pointed out that it had not been demonstrated to the meeting that the view expressed was necessarily true. The letter from the Albarta Union of REAs stated -the pro- posals had been presented to the union directors this sum- mer and had been rejected. It asked the members to do the same. Jim Ayer, Calgary Power division manager for Southern Alberta, told the meeting this was one reason the company was bringing the matter before each individual REA, .to allow not only the directors, but each member a chance to vote on the matter.
