The five got together for the first time Tuesday to look over their new possessions. MAIN NEED "These are the main things that will make the pageant said Mr. Kotch. "Without the lights we couldn't have a pageant." Mayor Anderson said obtain- ing the lights is a concrete step toward an event that will bring a great deal of attention and a tremendous number 'of visitors to southern Alberta. The Sight, the Sound and the Fury to bo an hour-long series of historic episodes tc chronicle the settlement of Southern Alberta will be part of celebrations in 1973 and 1974 marking the anniversary of the RCMP. CONTINUING THING Mayor Anderson said "there's a tremendous amount of his- tory in this area that this pag- eant could be carried on on a continuing basis." Mr. Smith said a wide var- ,ety of people are becoming in- volved in the creation and pro- duction of the program to be performed out-of-doors in the river valley around the Whoop- Up Country fort-compound. The two huge spot lights will be stationed on top of the cou- lees pointing down on the per- formance in the river valley. Mr. Smith said they throw enough light that photographs can be taken with normal day- light settings a mile away. GOOD SHAPE They are each mounted on rubber-tired carts and can be pulled behind an automobile. The 60-inch diameter lens lias a concave mirror back and a 150-amp, 78-volt electrode that can be moved to vary the width of the beam of light. Mr. Smith said the lights are in good condition and appear to have been in storage since they were made obsolete for anti-aircraft spotting by the de- velopment of radar in the 1940s. Natural gas opposed 60 years ago The Canadian Western Nat- ural Gas Company entertain- ed about 90 civic and business officials at a luncheon in Leth- bridge Tuesday to mark the company's 60th anniversary. Natural gas first came to Lethbririge in 1912 and thrfts of the first users were present for the luncheon. Dr. and Mrs. L. T. Alien and Mrs. I. M. Levitt were among ttie Lcthbridge res- idents who hooked up to the new service GO years ago. The introduction of natural gas in Lethbridge was strongly opposed by- an outspoken coal mining faction. Many coal min- ers lived in the city nnd were getting a discount on their fue! which cost a ton, On July 15, 1912, Lethbridge ratepayers voted 275 to 112 in favor of natural gas. Canadian Western says among the new innovations i is maldng is to begin using natural gas cars and trucks on its Lethbririge runs. Twentj such vehicles will be in the cit; within two weeks. afternoon. by the i Bruce Christie, Canada Pack- ers information officv from Toronto, said the trip will al- low Ontario cattlemen to find out facts about the cattle they have been buying from Alberta for years. NEW TWISTS George Robson, of the Shur Gain Farm in Maple, Ont. (a testing station for Can- ada Packer said the Ontario cattlemen have seen ome new. twists In cattle rais- ng during the trip. "It makes some of us wond- er where the cattle feeders in Ontario are going to get cattle o feed, what with the large number of fecdlots springing up right here in he said. 'They will need all the feeder cattle right here." He said there wouldn't be a rush to the cow calf operation (raise cows to get calves to feed in one system) in Ontario because of the high cost of land and the lack of space for such system. "The feeders continue buying will have to cattle in Al even though the cost ol the caltle is increasing as we! as the cost of transporting them to he said. "Fifty cent per pounc calves cost feeders 54 cents by the time they get them back to Ontario."

PRESCRIPTION CO Indians charge discrimination by stores, burs, and restaurants Many landlords claim students By HUDY HAUGENEDER Herald Staff Writer Strong handed some out-of-town the way students de- scribe many Lelhbridge land- lords. "They milk students, partic- ularly Indian students, for every cent they complained a Lethbridge Community College student. "And they offer next to noth- ing in exchange." Coupled with what most stu- dents describe as an "appall- ing at best" bus service U> the LCC, many of the out-of-town students are wondering why they selected a college in this community. MALTREATED Not only are students taken advantage of by landlords, but they are also maltreated by shopkeepers. "Especially if you're IS FOR YOU! Drop in and see Vic for the latest information on the money-saving Tnglis gas dryers, ST. LOUIS FURNITURE 118 5th ST. SOUTH PHONE 327-2210 omplained one native student ere from Manitoba. Evidently customer service i students at many city stores nd shopping centres is virtual- non-existent In addition, complained an- :her Manitoba student, Indian tudent shoppers are almost oiistantly spied upon by clerks. But for the Indian students, ousing seems to be the biggest rohlem. Indian students often make rrangements with landlords ver the phone and when the tudent shows up lo place a ash deposit, the facility is eiiher suddenly "filled" or the rent is boosted a considerable amount. Most the students are from Manitoba, Saskatchewan and northern Alberta and are at LCG to take a special social counselling course. Some of the Manitoba Stu- dents, especially those who have lived in Winnipeg, are at a loss to explain the bigotry they suffer at the hands, of landlords here. Compounding their problems is the fact they they are Cree Indians. Southern Alberta is Dlackfoot and some of Ihc Crees have to visit downtown Lethbridge in numbers large enough to afford protection from some of the rowdier Blackfoots. Some of the female students also suggest they are afraid to go downtown themselves dur- ing evening hours because tlrey are bothered by both white and Indian males. One group of Cree students from Manitoba wasn't allowed to sit together in the tavern at a local holel. "Judging from a one said, "in Lelhbridge I have a feeling of a strange creature from another world." PLAN LEAVING At least one Indian student and possibly more in the spring semester, will leave Lethbridge because of the discrimination and prejudice shown them by many whites. Restaurant service for the In- dian students is "very especially if there are white customers after "we" come in. Wendy Rasmussen, in charge of student housing at LCC, con- cedes there is wholesale dis- crimination against Indian stu- dents in Lethbridge. A recent irtlcle describing the rip-off :onditions some landlords set or all students brought forth a handful of sympathetic citi- zens with accommodation. However, these have been !obbled up, and some of the "ndian students are still without decent accommodation. NO HELP And, the students complain, .here's little or no help from he Lethbridge branch of the 'ndian affairs department. Both white and Indian slu- dents complain that many land- lords ask when called on the 3hone "whether we are stu- dents and whether we are In- dian." Most of the Indian students are family persons. Because of "high rental deposits" re- quired by those landlords who rent to while and Indian slti- clents, many students find themselves in near immediate budgetary difficulty. N'ot having planned for high deposits the students are often faced with unplanned expenses such as utility deposits. Also listed in an infinitely long list of complaints is thai "references" are often requir- ed. In the case of Indian stu- dents from otlier provinces and other students from remote or just from home, ref- erences are seen as unnecded. "Surely a landlo-d won't call someone in Winnipeg lo fol- low-up a reference." complain- ed a Manitoba studenl. "It's just another way of discrimin- ating against students." All the students interviewed by The Herald were interview- ed in a classroom situalion and some privately.
