Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 11, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta lg _ THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, Sspiembpr 11, Youth's Bar Mitzvah held in Old Jerusalem By HEItn JOHNSON Staff Writer A Bar ilitzvah is a reli- gious ceremony confirming that a Jewish boy has reach- ed the age of religious re- sponsibilily. It traditionally takes place during the boy's 13th year, often on his birthday. One of the most tilting set- tings for such a ceremony is at the Western Wall (or Wail- ing Wall) in the old city sec- tion of Jerusalem. In a ritual that was con- ducted in a form unchanged from that used years ago at (he same wall, Ron Schwartz of Lethbridge this summer had his Bar Milzvah in Jerusalem. The ceremony was a high- light of (and one of the ma- jor reasons for) a trip taken this summer by the Gordon Schwartz family of Leth- bridge, to Israel, Europe and Britain. In the tradition of travel- lers from time immemorial, Mr. Schwartz compiled a re- sume of his family's journey. Here are some excerpts from, that journal: Amsterdam Enjoyed a night cruise of Amsterdam's fabled canals which prodded a unique and fascinating view of the city. Drove past the house of Rembrandt and saw the Rijksmuseum with its out- standing collection of arti- facts. We walked to Anne Frank's house and spent a couple ot hours there. Stayed in Holland for five then flew to Tel Aviv. Jerusalem The old city section of Jerusalem has in it the Western (Wailing) Wall, which is a remnant of Ihe Holy Temple and one of the holiest places in the coun- try. Ron had his Bar Mitzvah at the Wall July 5 and need- less to say this event was one that we will always remem- ber. Went through the Moslem quarter. Saw the Dome of the Rock, El Aqsa Mosque, Sol- omon Stables, David's Cita- del, Holy Sepulchre, Church of the Redeemer, Mount Zion; just like turning the pages of history back years. We travelled by car from Jerusalem to Bethlehem where we went to the site where Jesus was born and saw an edifice created at this locale. From there to Jericho where they recently located one of the most important archeological finds in history Old City of Jericho, which is some years old. From there we went to the Dead Sea where we had a swim. The water was murky, having a heavy potash and salt content. Very hot, ap- proximately 120 degrees Fahrenheit, and we were un- comfortable until we swam in the fresh pools adjacent to the Dead Sea. Heat is severe in this part of Israel during the summer and there is very little veg- etation, il any, that we could observe other than the green- ery around the odd oasis. The Dead Sea is split be- tween Jordan and Israel and we endeavored to drive to the famed AHenby Bridge. However, there was an Is- raeli army patrol that sug- gested, for security reasons, that we turn around and go back, which we did. Hebron This is one of the oldest towns in the Holy Land, inhabitated for more than years. It is a place of narrow, winding alleys and oriental bazaars. Observed the Bedouin tribes on the perimeter of the city, lending their Hocks or sheep. Bethlehem spent a few hours here, the place re- vered by Jews as the birth- place of David and by Chris- tians as the birthplace of Je- sus. Went through the Church of the Nativity in Manger Square. Below the church is the cave sacred to Christians as the birthplace of Christ. Drove along Lhc Mediter- ranean coast to Tiberias, (in the Sea of Galilee a city founded by the son of Herod the Great in the first cen- tury. Tel Aviv the tour of Is- rael (which included many other stops) concluded here. Tel Aviv is a busy, Western- appearing city with its com- mercial industrial culture, traffic and all. The centre of Israeli night life and theatre, it contrasts with the adjoin- ing old city of Jaffa.

"There must be a specific plan for each ranch and the consultant must make sure the plan will he said. "This plan will have to in- corporate techniques which will shorten the breeding season, al- low the culling of cows not suit- able for the plan and allow proper nutritional levels for all the herd." Dr. Wiltbank said a shorter breeding season is most impor- tant in order to have the cows SHOE REPAIRS BEST FAST ir CHEAP SHOE HOSPITAL 311 lHh Street South calve at the proper time, ac- of time from birth to first heat, cording to the plan. He said in order for the I the animal. except to allow time to heal rancher to have every cow calve one time each 365 days, the short breeding season is necessary so the herd ivill be able to calve, have time Io come into heat again and be bred at about the same time. Late calving cows don't have time to finish the natural cycle before the herd breeding time, Uiey calve much later, and then there is a gap in the iveight of the calves the follow- ing year. "By shortening tlie breeding season, the weight differential of the calf crop is not very much." He said the rancher has to treat cows as individuals and not allow continuous suckling, in order to shorten the interval from calving to first heat. Ho said there is no known way of shortening tht length DALLAS TAVERN A problem with young heif- ers is being encountered by some ranchers but Dr. Wilt- bank said two year old heif- ers can be bred. He said the heifers should be bred about 20 days before the cow herd, and the rancher should make certain the heif- ers are separated from the cows because they can't com- pete for the feed. He said in order to get heif- ers into heat, they hare to have the proper weight and struc- tural size. "There is a need to feed heif- ers enough to gain one pound per day for successful breed- he said. "With good feeding practices, heifers will have just as good a calving record as Uie cow herd." He suggested some of the problem with Charolais cattle is a lack of culling. Some of the cows have small ovaries and some of Hie bulls have small testicles, and these ani- mals should be culled. He said a good selection pro- gram could solve some of this problem. More money must be spent on local tourism promotion By RUDY HAUGENEDER figure to I by lourism, Mr. Smith saJd. By RUDY HAUGENEDER Staff Writer Hundreds of AJberta busi- nesses are going io be hit in the pocketbook if more isn't done Immediately to promote touris1" in this province, Frank Smith, manager of the Travel and Convention Association of SouUiern Alberta, said in an interview. The fight for the tourist dol- lar is highly competitive more competitive than ever be- fore, he said. The only way the Alberta tourist industry and thousands of businesses largely affected by tourism are going to sur- vive is for the provincial gov- ernment and tourist organiza- tions to spend more money on tourist promotion, Mr. Smith said. Tliis year tourist associa- tions in Alberta spent promoting tourism, of which the provincial government con- tributed "That's a small Mickey Mouse to spend on tour- ism considering the returns re- alized, Mr. Smith said. He estimated that Lethbridge receives about million a year from tourist spending. Tourism in Canada meant billion in taxes, equal to in taxes for every resident in Canada, a Canada-wide tour- ist study showed. Mr. Smith said a conserva- tive guess for current tourist expenditures would increase the figure to More money tourist promotion now "just to hold our own against compe- tition from other he added. I by lourism, Mr. Smith is needed for Only 400 of these businesses belong to the tourist associa- tion. It is unfair, lie said, to ask them to work for the bene- fit of the rest. "The handwriting is on the Mr. Smith advised business- wall next year I foresee a staring down of tourist growth, followed by no growth at all in men and the new provincial government to look "very close- ly at their sources of income." the second year and a decline It is essential that Alberta during the third year." In this area, one of 12 tourist zones in Alberta, there are ap- proximately 1.900 businesses af- fected, in one way or another, tries harder to sell its areas to tourists to offset the attrac- tion of more-accessible points of tourist interest in other North American areas, he said. American economic cutback offset by high tourist trade Increased tourism is one way: money to promote travel, to help offset the effect's on the Because ot the dollar return Canadian economy of recently- imposed U.S. tariffs, Frank Smith, manager of the Travel and Convention Association of Southern Alberta, said in an interview. Successful promotion of tour- ists from the U.S. would mean more money being spent i n Canada, and would create new jobs in the tourist service in- dustry, compensating in part for the loss of revenue and jobs created by the new U.S. re- strictions. Mr. Smith blasted most Ca- for money invested promoting travel at least 10 for one it would be "logical to offset the tariff hy promoting local I tourism Io a greater extent in i the he said. Mr. Smith said he is hoping for a more realistic attitude to- wards tourist promotion spend- ing from newly-elected Prairie governments, especially Alber- ta.
