Provincial Judge L. W. Hudson dis- missed the charge against Daniel Peters, 1322 29th St. S., owner of The Dairy Queen, 12th Avenue and Mayor Magrath Dr., on the grounds that he was acting within his rights and respon- sibilities to maintain discipline at his business Peters was charged with grabbing Brian Malacko, 524 Dieppe Blvd., by the throat July 30 when Malacko refus- ed to leave the parking lot of the Dairy Queen at 12th Avenue and Mayor Magrath Drive. Peters admitted grabb- ing Malacko's throat and pushing him, but stated he had told Malacko on two previous occasions to get off his premises and stay off. The incident occurred when Peters tried to drive into his parking lot and found the driveway blocked by a group of young people who were standing around talking. Provincial Judge Hudson said he accepted Peters' testimony "I gathered that the complainant (Malacko) was a smart aleck by his demeanor on the witness he said. "The accused is bound to maintain order and discipline on his premises." a 1 Scouts seek more funds to hire co-ordinator Unless the local Boy Scout organization gets nearly twice the amount it has been ten- tatively allotted this year by Lethbridge United Way, it will be unable to hire a second much needed full-time scouting co-ordinator, a spokesman says The full-time professional is needed to revitalize a sagging local program but the organization needs from the United Way to hire the person, says Bob Jenkins, executive director of the Lethbridge Boy Scout council. The local scout organization has been told it can expect to receive from the United Way's 1973 drive, if the drive meets its unofficial objective of Mr. Jenkins says. About would be the local organization's contribu- tion to the executive's salary. The executive would be employed regionally to work for the Lethbridge district for four months of the year and would be employed by the Southern Alberta region the other eight months. Mr Jenkins says of the request would go toward the executive's salary and maintaing him in the field and the remainder of the in- crease is needed to keep pace with the rising cost of living. In asking for the Lethbridge Council of the Boy Scouts of Canada is asking for more than twice the amount it has ever been allotted before. The district council received from last year's can- vassing. The boy scout executive is needed to offset a drop in boy scout membership which has declined from a 1966 total of persons to 883 members this year, through a revitaliza- tion of the volunteer program, Mr. Jenkins says Another full-time executive staff member would put emphasis on the development of volunteer help which in turn would lead to a more meaningful program of greater interest to a larger number of boys, says Mr. Jenkins. His influence would be felt all through the program, Mr. Jenkins believes, down to the level of the individual scout. His primary role would be as a teacher, consultant and advisor to the service staff, a group of 12 volunteers who work in co-operation with group leaders, making suggestions providing them with ideas, training and sup- port. Mr. Jenkins projects an in- crease in scout membership to by 1975 and says that with employment of a full- time scout executive, who can help solve recruiting problems, the number of BERGMAN'S FLOOR COVERINGS Custom Installations Ph. 328-037S 2716 12 ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC Schwirfe Bldg 222 5th SI S rhoni 321-4095 For Permanent Beauty In Your Home Straw Flowers from Bunch Dried Arrangements priced from Call 327-5747 FRACHE'S FLOWER SHOP 322-6th St. S., Lethbrldge group leaders would increase. As a result, there would be an increase in the amount of per- sonal contact between group leaders and the boys, says Mr. Jenkins. It is unrealistic to expect all boys to join the movement, but he says "the aim is to make the program available to every boy and to let everyone know the programs available." "The need for this man is evident in the whole he says. The number of volunteers would have to be increased from 135 to 400 to effectively provide programming for 500 boys, says Mr. Jenkins. If the organization is unable to obtain the amount of the re- quest, says Mr. Jenkins, alter- native methods of filling the same need will have to be con- sidered. Boys 5 to 16 are eligible to join scouts in one of four groups. Depending on their age they can join the beavers, cubs, scouts or venturers. Mr. Jenkins says the boy scout movement has moved away from the military approach and is now en- couraging leaders to help a boy grow and develop his potential by experiencing rather than by following in- structions. "The emphasis in the organization is on meeting the needs of the boys and in help- ing them develop through be- ing involved in challenging ac- tivities which are he says. U of L attracts students University enrolment up The University of Lethbridge is now sure that its enrolment total is greater than last year. University officials were reluctant to boast of an enrol- ment increase until students went through the routine of filing class cards. The statistics released this week show that there are 55 more full-time students Car-truck crash hurts passenger About damage and one minor injury resulted from a collision on Highway 3 near the stockyards Wednes- day afternoon. Lyle William Morrow, 54, of Debolt, was driving east on Highway 3 when he attempted to turn left off the highway. His vehicle was in collision with a truck driven by Leonard David Fingaryk, 30, of Lethbridge. A passenger in the Morrow vehicle, Frank Stevenson, suf- fered a bruised chest attending classes this fall than there were a year ago. Spokesman for the U of L registrar's office say students are attending classes full-time in the 1973 fall semester. Statistics also show that 472 part-time students are attending the U of L this fall, compared to 361 on this date in 1972.
