Drivo S. Phono 328-8161 "The Pioneer and Leading Rc-lnll Sliop in Lellibridge" FINEST QUALITY PASTRY AND OAKERY PRODUCTS Stratus Faction to visit city Sept. 15 The Stratus Faction, a 25- member group o[ singers, dan- cers and musicians who first played Lethbrielge in May, re- turn to the Yatcs Memor i a 1 Centre Sept. 15. The May concert was some- thing of a beginning for the group, which was organized this spring by the Stratus Sing- ers trio that has been to- gether fur more than four years. In May the larger group was just getting off the ground; the concert was only their fourth engagement. They are now a much more polished group, with about 200 performances under their belts. Murray Cameron, who, along with Brock Smith and Leth- bridge native Merry Jo Halm, is a member of the original trio, said the Faction, having played the major fairs in Al- berta and Saskatchewan, is on its way to several big engage- ments in the United States. There is also a possibility they may do the nationally-lol- evised Miss Canada pageant this fall a big bteak for a young group. They already have three recent televis i o n shows to their credit, one pro- duced in Calgary (thoir base of operations) for the CBC. The U.S. trip includes an en- gagement in San Diego in No- vember which could bring more job offers for the troupe. Mur- ray said he expects a number of talent scouts to take in the San Diego shows, which could open the door to the goldmine of the entertainment world Las Vegas. He's a little leary of hitting Las Vegas too soon, estimating it will take the group about a year to polish the act enough to be ready for the tough Las Vegas circuit. A trip to Disneyland is also in the works. This will prob- ably happen some time in Jan- uary. The group is pinning its hopes on the appeal of a well inte- grated show that covers every thing from a vaudeville med Icy to contemporary sounds. The Stratus Singers, who played largely to lounge audi- ences, aimed their material at the 20 to 30 age group. Now that the show is too large for the smaller places the material is wide ranging enough to cov er all tastes. It's family entertainment, with a 10 piece orchestra in- cluding horns, strings and rhy- thm, with 15 singers and dan- cers a group of talented young Canadians intent upon making their mark on the en- tertainment world. Cancer campaign exceeds objective The 1971 campaign for funds by tlie Lethbridge and district unit of the Canadian Cancer Society has exceeded its 000 objective by Post off ICC holiday The Lethbridge post office will operate on a holiday sched- ule La'mr Day. The lock box lobby will re- main open on a 24 hour-a-day basis; special deb'very mail will be delivered and street letter box pick-ups will Ire made following the Sunday schedule. Letter carrier services in su- burban Lethbridge will be cur- tailed for the clay, as will wicket service and highway mail ser- vices. Society officials hope to reach by the end of Scp- LcmlKr, the final date for the campaign. Of the amount, the highest ever collected by tlie local unit, came from urban cen- tres, from rural areas and was received in the form of memorials. John Gogo, local Cancer So- ciety president, attributes the success of the campaign to three factors- public aware- ness that cancer can be heat- en, tlie personal effort of cam- paign chairman Cecil Gordon and an "extra effort" put forth by canvassers. Funds arc directed toward both cancer research and pub- lic education, with the latter playing a prominent role on the local unit's activities. Last year more than 30 edu- cational meetings were held, with total attendance of more lhan Chairman of the education committee is Mrs. Claire Mahe.

YouVe right August was hot So you thought it was a litlle warm in August? You're right. August 1971 was the hottest month on record in Lethhridge the records go back to 1902. The mean monthly tempera- tee at the Kenyon Field weath- er office in August was 71.5 de- grees, easily surpassing a nor- mal mean for that month of 63.3 degrees. It was also two degrees above the previous rec- ord for August. But the spectacular part was tire eclipsing by a narrow one tenth of a degree of the previous high for July, which is normally the warmest month of the year. The record for the hottest month was formerly held by July of I960; now it's August of 1971. The weather office, which keeps enough statistics to make baseball commentators look like amateurs, reports a num- ber of records fell by the way- side last month. According to averages obtain- ed over the year, a high of 91.5 degrees can be expected in August. This year it was 97.G degrees. Oddly enough, the hot- test day, Aug. 5, was not the warmest Aug. 5 on record. Daily records were broken, howevei, on the 2nd, Oth, 26th and 27th of the month. For 14 days in August it was 91 degrees or Irigher; on 25 days it was 81 degrees or high- er. The warm spell was the re- sult of a ridge of high pressure which established itself over western Canada in mid-July and refused to budge until the last few days in August. While hot, it was not a par- ticularly dry month. Lethbridge had .97 of an inch of rain. The record is .07 of an inch, estab- lished in 1948.
