Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 14, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE September Suds again available at Lethbridge pubs Some shipments of Uncle Ben's beer have been arriving in Lethbridge this week to help relieve thirsty drinkers but the new stocks are not expected to last through next week Three Lethbridge hotels, all owned by the Calgary firm Robar Equities, received shipments Thursday. Spokesmen for the Hotels, the Plainsman. Garden and Coalbanks Inn. said Friday their stocks should last through the weekend at least The Plainsman received about 200 cases of beer and the other two about 150 cases each but they way in which they were delivered is clouded in mystery. Deliveries have been embargoed by union truckers The hotel spokesmen named three companies as the deliverers of the beer but all three denied hauling the suds when contacted by The Herald. The strike of delivery workers employed by Alberta Brewers Agents Ltd., a delivery system jointly owned by Labatt's Molsons's and Carlmg O'Keefe breweries has left Uncle Ben's the only beer available Tartan breweries, owned by British Columbia millionaire Ben Gmter, has taken the task of supplying the province with beer through his privately owned delivery system. The Tartan brewery in Red Deer has been shipping beer ou't with independent truckers. Another hotel in the city that received the Tartan suds was the Alec Arms which acquired about 240 cases last week Arms assistant manager, Ed Phillips, said that supply lasted about five days. Al Hober, El Rancho Hotel manager, said he will not be ordering any Tartan beer nor will the Marquis or Holiday Inn, spokesmen for those es- tablishments said. The Holiday Inn spokesman said the tavern staff will be holding a meeting today to decide what to do about the situation It is possible the tavern could close next week, he said Drought pinches less in some district cities The so-called beer drought has failed to dry up district hotels, as area pub crawlers can creep into any of nine watering spots. A suds survey conducted late Friday shows one of nine hotels selling beer from taverns still has draft beer The luckv hotelman is Chester SPECIAL! 30-PIECE MELAMINE DINNERWARE 3 colorful patterns to choose from.

Barry Wilson, owner of Coutt's El Coyotee Inn. says he s got 250 cases of suds cool- ing in his tavern. And Steve Lvcar, owner of Roseanne Hotel in Warner, says. "I've got so much beer here it's goin' bad, no foolin.' "We got a lot of beer we just ran out of draft." Motorists driving west or north from Lethbridge will have an easier time refueling than eastbound drivers. Taber, Coaldale and Foremost taverns are all dry and pub managers there are anxiously- looking forward to the end of the beer strike. But eastbound motorists who persist will be rewarded with a glass of suds at hotels in Manyberries and Bow Island, though both hotels report stocks are dwindling rapidly. Westbound motorists can chug into taverns in Monarch. Fort Macleod and the 'Pass Julia Fischer, owner of Monarch Hotel, has enough beer to slake Saturday night thirsts, but expects to close her pub early next week. Both hotels in Fort Macleod have bottled beer in their taverns and the Bellevue Inn at Bellevue reports 120 dozen bottles on hand. More dogs poisoned Two suspected cases of dog poisonings were reported to Lethbridge city police Friday. Roy Montgomery, 1807 20th Ave. S., told police he let his dog out for a run about p.m. and about p.m. the dog became sick. Ann Mutter, 1914 20th St. S., reported Friday her dog had been poisoned and took it to the Chinook Pet Clinic. Both dogs remain alive. There have been five dogs killed by poison in the city in the last nine months. City police warn people not to let their dogs out alone at night but to go out with them.

Phone 32V-olvo 328-6586 By KEN ROBERTS Herald Staff Writer Canadian police chiefs are extremely concerned about the number of armed robberies occurring across Canada today says Lethbndge's chief of police. Ralph Michelson, who's just returned from the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police annual conference in Win- nipeg, said Friday many of the OUARANTKD SERVICE To SONY, LLOYDS, PIONEER, NORESCO, and most other mlket of ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT 2 to Serve You ANGLO STERIOA PHOTO SERVICE DIPT. 419 5th Street South Phone 328-0575 chiefs would like to see stricter handling of people ac- cused of these offences. Bail considerations should be much more and if offences are committed while the offender is on bail a second bail should not be considered and maximum sentences should be imposed he said. The Canadian criminal code provides "plenty of beef" for dealing with armed robbers, Chief Michelson said. After armed robberies in Medicine Hat and Calgary in which two youths were killed, some persons called for stricter measures for night employment of young people in service stations. These people are entitled to work. They "should be able to work without getting robbed. i1 i FOX DENTURE CLINIC Est 1922 PHONE 327-6565 E. S. P. FOX, C-D.M.

It isn't necessary to get strict with employees and employers but with the people who committ these offences. He predicted an increase in the number of armed robberies in rural areas, as city police forces increase in size and efficiency, forcing criminals to the country- "Victims of crimes are the most forgotten people in the judicial system." Mr. Michelson said. Everybody is concerned about the accused. Get him a suspended sentence and a job but then what about the victim? Police get closer to victims than do the courts. They see the reactions of a man whose hard earned money has been taken. When and if laws are chang- ed the victims of crimes should be given as much con- sideration as the accused. There is no big market for drugs in Lethbridge as exists in the bigger centres. Drugs are relayed into Lethbridge from bigger distributing points like Vancouver and Calgary, he said. However, Lethbridge is the distributing point for nar- cotics in Southern Alberta. A good exchange of infor- mation between Alberta police forces has kept loan sharking and narcotics to a minimum in the province, he said. Mr. Michelson predicted in the near future some criminal matters may be settled out of court as are civil matters so the courts can concentrate on the more serious cases.
