The industries are seeking sewage treatment methods at a rate which will keep their products economical- ly competitive with those of other areas. "This pollution has to be con- one industry executive said, "and we realize we have a definite role to play in sew- age treatment.

Certainly not unheard even in the Banana Belt, still something of a shock for Lethbridge residents who awoke this morning to find that winter apparently had arrived. The Lethbridge weather of- fice reported about an inch of snow on the ground this mor- ning, although more than two inches had fallen since the storm started. The rest had al- ready melted. Combined with .33 of an inch of rain that fell Thursday night, the actual precipitation this morning amounted to just over half an inch. The temperature is an Lifeguard Rule To Be Requested abrupt change for local resi- dents, who basked in readings in the low 70s Thursday. The mercury dropped to 31 degrees early Friday morning. One result of the storm was a power outage in Cardston for three hours early today. Roads in the area were reported slip- pery and school buses did not run. Schools were closed View and The Lethbridge Parks and Recreation Commission will ask the city to comply with a cor- oner's jury recommendation to Guilty Plea On Possessing Stolen Goods Richard Arnold Crowthers of Lethbridge pleaded guilty in magistrate's court in Leth- Dridge Wednesday to possession of stolen goods, valued at more than His case was remanded until Sept. 16 for passing sentence. Apparently the goods were stolen from break-ins at Pic- :ure Butte and Shaughnessy.

Ltd. have a lifeguard in the life- guard's chair at all times dur- ing school swimming classes. The jury's recommendation came following the March 2 death of nine-year-old Cindy Sansaver. She died following a swimming accident during a swim class. There was no life- guard in the chair at the time of the incident. In a memorandum from the recreation supervisor the total estimated cost for additional supervision during swimming instruction and community use, based on the 1969 permanent lifeguard rate was outlined. The additional cost would be but the direct cost to the city could be reduced by ap- proximately by charging the schools and community groups using the pool. Apparently the various school authorities are aware of the recommendation and the parks and recreation department an- ticipate meeting with thme in the near future to discuss supervision of fall and winter swim programs. Cars Collide, Five Hurt Five people were slightly in- jured and damage amounted to in an intersection col- lision on the corner of 9th Ave. and Mayor Magrath Drive Thursday. None of the injured was hos- pitalized. Drivers of the two vehicles involved were Diane Frouws of 134 Dieppe Blvd. and Oishi Saneyoshi of Raymond. Cardston, Mountain Glenwood. Blairmore reported about three inches of snow on the ground this morning. Taking into account the fact that much of it was melting almost as fast as it fell, this is roughly equal to a total snowfall of about twice that amount. Vauxhall was getting only light snow today, with most melting as it hit the ground. The weather office at Leth- bridge has forecast lows be- tween 25 and 30 degrees to- night, with an outlook for 40 above Saturday. The season's first snow has been fairly general throughout the province, with the moun- tain and foothills regions re- ceiving the brant of the storm. A high pressure ridge build- ing down from the Yukon and a low pressure area moving eastward from British Colum- bia along the Canada-U.S.A. border have resulted in a storm front tracing a path across the province through Edson, Red Deer, Calgary and Lethbridge. Tho low is continuing its swing down into Montana and on eastward toward the Great Lakes. Conditions should sta- bilize as the high pressure area establishes itself, but that will likely take another day or so in the south. Rights Of Retarded Stressed By Doctor By MARGARET LUCKHURST Herald Staff Writer "The menially retarded child has the same inherent rights as the normal Dr. Douglas McPherson, Lethbridge pedi- atrician told 100 members and guests at the annual meeting of the Lethbridge Association for the Mentally Retarded Thurs- day evening. "They should he allowed the same opportunity for self-ful- filment and happiness that the normal child expects in he said, "and they feel a deep sense of need for social inter- relationship within the com- munity." Dr. McPherson said that so- ciety has been slow in acknowl- edging the potential of re- tardates. "In spite of the fact thai mental retardation is the mosl handicapping of all childhood diseases, we have not given il the same attention we have other childhood problems." Dr. McPherson pointed out that three per cent of the to- tal population are identified as mental retardates. One per cent of all adults in Canada are suffering from some form of mental retardation, with the incidence higher in boys than girls, Dr. McPherson said. Modem science has been able to isolate some causes of mental retardation. Among these are genetic inheritance mongolism, which is caused by an extra gene, phenylketonuria a dietary condition now easily diagnosed in the new- born by a simple urine test, pre-natal conditions, and cul- tural deficiency. "It has been found that the cultural environment has a tre- mendous effect on a child's Dr. McPherson said, "for it has been found that mental retardation in ghettoes where little sense of worth is felt, the incidence of retardation is con siderably higher. This is not from organic causes, but rather, it is simply a result of poverty and stag- nating culture." Dr. McPherson warned the cataslrophy caused to the unborn through the unwise use of LSD. "B'or heaven's sake warn your kids of the dangers popping acid has on creating abnormalities in babies, the} simply don't realize the prob: lems they can be establishing for themselves." Dr. McPherson noted that great deal of our modern ap- proach to mental retardation owes a debt to Marie Monies son, who, in the nineteenth century -set up a training pro- gram for slum children in Rome. "Kids who were catego- rized as mentally when given even training were deficien minima found to have vastly improved IQs."

Dr. McPherson outlined some positive .concepts which the layman should keep in mind in his relationship with mental retardates. "We must remember that a large per- centage of retardates can achieve the Grade 3 or 4 level if given the he said. "A slightly smaller percent- age are trainable to do routine tasks; and an even smaller percentage will be dependent on care all their lives. "If we keep in mind that the majority of retardates differ very slightly from their nor- mal counterparts we will have overcome a good deal. For these children need friends, they want to feel they are a part of the community, that they can live normal lives, some even entertaining thoughts of marriage.
