Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 16, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 - THE lETHBRIDGE HERAID - "riday, October 16, 1970 Mobile FIRST AID POST Building Of New Distillery Depends On Incentive Grant Preliminary plans are progressing well on a $9 million liquor distillery planned for Lethbridge, but the project still hinges on whether or not the federal government gives approval to a grant under the regional incentives program. A decision is expected by the end of the year. The distillery would be built by International Distillers and Vintners Ltd. of London, England, on a 47-acre plot of land north of 9th Ave. and tjast of 28th St. in north Lethbridge. Scheduled to be in operation by May, 1972, the distillery woxild have a capacity for 400,-000 bushels of grain every year and would employ about 60 persons. Occasional Flaws String Quartet Competent Group FUNDS TO OPERATE THE FIRST AID UNIT of the St. John Ambulance Brigade of Lethbridge are to be supplied by the Lakeview Lions Club. Gordon Leno, left, past-president of the club, presents a $500 cheque to Stan Coxson, secretary-treasurer of the brigade. Right, is Phil King, treasurer of Lakeview Lions. The money is an initial amount for the purchase of gas, oil and service for the mobile unit. Proceeds from the Lions' annual sucker drive later this month will also be donated to the operation of the unit. It is estimated it will cost $700-$!,000 per year to keep the unit on the job.

SOUTHMINSTER 5th LETHBRIDGE CUB, SCOUT and VENTURER By DEAN BLAIR A quartet of Straddvarius strmg instruments were in town Thursday night and were played in concert at the Yates Memorial Centre by four very competent and sophisticated musicians. The event was the opening presentation of the 1970 - 71 Overture Concert Series, and the musicians were Allen Ohmes, John Ferxell, William Preucil and Charles Wendt, members of the Iowa Struig Quartet. Playing before an audience of about 250, the quartet opened with Hadyn's Quartet in D Major, Opus 76, Nov. 5. Written ui 1797 and very much "Papa Haydn", the work hints m the Largo and Menuet-to movements of the coming Romantic era. Although the music was adequately played, the performance failed to coalesce until near the end of the second movement. In the remaining two, the performance captured the robust, delightful spirit of the composer. The middle work, Scherzo and Nocturne from Borodin's String Quarter No. 2, formed a deUcious marshmallow spread between the two more staple works of Haydn and Beethoven. As a member of the 19th-century group of Russian nationalistic composers known as the "Mighty Five," Borodin clothes his exquisite melodies in exotic color and rich orchestrations. The hauntingly beaut iful theme from the Nocturne is familiar to all as one of the hit tunes from the Broadway musical, Kismet, and it was good to hear it back in its rightful place. The performance here was one of delicacy and taste- The final work, Beethoven's String Quartet in F. Major, Opus 59, demands more musical and technical skill than the two previous numbers, and the Iowa quartet handled it with energy and control. The dynamic tension in the work, resulting from Beethoven's increasing difficulty in fitting his creative energies to the traditional musical moulds he inherited were admirably re-fl.9cted in the performance. Although tlie evening was a success over - all, there were occasional flaws. Intonation was not in all cases what it should be and at times some of the more rapid articulations were lacking in precision. Yet these were only minor distractions to a most worthwhile evening of chamber music. The planned maximum for the plant would be 800,000 bushels annually, but this amount is not contemplated l>efare 1980. Com appears to be the distilling grain the distillery will want, and the company sees no reason why all of the corn couldn't be grown in southern Alberta. Norman Penny, representative for the company, sai'd the firm likes to use about 80-90 per cent com in its distilling process combined with about 10 per cent rye, but adds that the com will have to be in a competitive price position with rye or the percentage could be altered. The distillery will purchase two carloads of com growth in southern Alberta this season, as test samples. Liquor produced by the distillery would be shipped throughout Canada and the United States and would mclude whiskey, gin and vodka. The building of the distillery would also have some importance to the southern Alberta cattle industry. The plant will have a complete recovery system whereby screen residues used for cattle feed would be available after the com is processed. About 3,000 tons of residue would result from 400,000 bushels of com. Child Problems Meeting Topic The first meeting of the southern Alberta chapter of the Council for Exceptional Children was held at the Dorothy Gooder School recently. Guest speaker for the evening was Howie Puckett whose topic was The Emotionally Disturbed Child. The purpose of the council is to promote the welfare and education of exceptional children and youth. Mr. Puckett explained that emotionally disturbed children are those who are handicapped either physically 0- mentally; in some cases it involves the gifted child. The executive for the south-em Alberta chapter comprises Murray Coleman, president; Dr. S. A. Perkins, past-president; Bill Weadick, vice-president; Mrs. L. Evans, membership; Howie Puckett, secretary-treasurer; Mrs. Charlotte Gaffney, publicity chairman. Meetings are held the first Wednesday of every month.
