Drive Ph. 328-7751 United Appeal Salvation Army gets support Dy MARGARET LUCKIIURST Staff The Salvation Army, with its unique costume and its wide range of social programs is one of the most self effacing but successful philanthropic Chris- tian denomin a t i o n s in the world. Associated with assistance to the needy and distressed, re- habilitation to the alcoholic and aid to the transient, persons in trouble, even in alier territory, automatically turn to the Sal- vation Army for help and gui- dance. And it must be said that if anything practical can be done by the army to help someone, it is never refused. The Salvation Army has long been established in Lethbridge, with the first meeting of a small but vigorous corps being held in 1898 in a small building on 5th St. near 1st Ave. S. Over the years the Salvation- ists have ex p a n d e d several times as demands upon their community assistance increas- ed and the city developed. Today their latest home is a new citadel on 4lh Ave. S. open- ed last year, and anyone who knows anything about the Leth- bridge corps will appreciate what, a busy place it is. Apart from Sunday schools, cubs, scouts, brownies and guides for the young people, there is constant practice for junior and senior bands. Activities such as the Home League (women's organization) and the League of Mercy (visi- tation) also meet regularly to plan and carry out their sched- ules. One of the better known good works of the Salvation Army is carried out at Christ- mas time when the citadel acts as a clearing house for food hampers and articles to be dis- j tributed to the needy of the j city and nearby district. Last year an estimated 400- 500 hampers including food vouchers contributed by churches, service clubs and in- dividuals were distributed be- fore Christmas Eve. For (.he Christmas campaign, the army depends on its annual Kettle Drive to build up its Christmas Cheer fund. But much of the Salvation Army's program would not be fulfilled if, as an agency of the United Appeal, it did not get financial assistance yearly. A portion of the money you contribute to the appeal goes to the Salvation Army, and they are first class experts at mak- ing your dollars go a long way. Frosty iveather stays as winter gets foothold MFC approves bottling plant Stratus Faction does its thing for appreciative Lethbridge crowd. Stratus Faction <'smooth, versatile' in their Lethbridge performance The unsettled damp condi ftions, wliich are prevalent throughout the Prairie prov- inces are expected to continue today and for the most of to- morrow with high temperatures in the 55 degree range for the two days. A total of .13 of an inch of precipation fell at the Lefh- bridge Kenyon Field airport this morning with no frost re- ports received. CLIFF BLACK, Certified Dental Mechanic BLACK DENTAL LAB tower Level MEDICAL DENTAL BLDG. PHONE 327-2822 i The unsettled conditions are caused by a high pressure area originating in the Hudson Bay area, extending south through Ontario and Manitoba and west through Saskatchewan and Al- berta. This area meets a low pressure system in western Al- berta. Today, as the high pressure ridge moves eastward, the warmer temperatures will cause the skies to thin with the resulting drop in temperatures to an overnight low of 30 to 35 degrees. Clouds help to keep surface heat in the area, and with the uncertainty of the cloud cover, southern Alberta is in a deli- cate situation concerning frost.

"WHERE SALES ARE BACKED 61 SERVICE" McCREADY-BAlNES PHARMACY ITD. 614 3rd Ave. S. Phone 327-3555 GEX By HERB JOHNSON Staff Writer Make no mistake this is a professional group. They are slick, smooth, ver- satile and they know the mean- ing of the words dynamics and pacing. The group is the Stratus Fac- tion and they played to a near- capacity audience Wednesday night at the Yates Memorial Centre. Nucleus of the 25-member or- ganization is the Stratus Sing- ers Murray Camercn, Brock Smith and Merry Jo Hahn. While the trio is the backbone of the show, everyone in the group is versatile enough lo step into the spotlight and prac- tically everyor.e does before the two-hour show is over. Organized in Calgary this spring, the group already shows promise of great- er things to come. Billed as a "Las Vegas style show the Stratus Fac- I tion puts on a well-produced concert. Every move is plan- ned and rehearsed to the point where there are very, very few mistakes. Wednesday's concert opened with a short set bv the Slratus Singers, sparked by the irre- pressible Murray Cameron. But the real power and en- ergy the group can generate became obvious only when the full ensemble came on stage. This is a young group, most of the members in their early 20s, and they have the kind of hon- est enthusiism that only peo- ple their age seem to be able to project. Add to this the talent and teclmical polish they have in abundance and the -result can make your hair stand on end. Aiming at an audience "be- tween seven and the Fac- tion delivered a surprisingly well-blended variety of songs. A cheerful parody of Jealousy i ivas done with seemingly gen- uine affection for tie material, which was written long before anyone in the group was even bom. Blood, Sweat and Tears' ar- rangement of Billie Holiday's God Bless the Child featured some beautifully clean playing from the brass. Merry Jo, featured on Sun- day Morning and Nothing Can Touch Me Now, sang with warmth and feeling. The group's sensitivity toward bal- lads also came through on Echo Park. One of the most intriguing arrangements was on the old hit The Atcheson, Topeka and the Santa Fe, wlu'ch contained a clever interpolation of Senti- mental Journey. The dancers (everyone in the group who wasn't tied down to an instmment) added greatly to the visual impact of the show. They not only danced and sang, they frequently help- ed keep tile stage clear of microphone stands and a problem that became notice- able from time to time. The musicians in tile band played beautifully. The driving, cooking rhythm section and sharp, crackling wwk from the horns left no doubt about the group's competence. The strings seemed a little over- powered, but did add occa- sional touches of color. They might be used to better ad- vantage. The lighting subtle and never overdone was anoth- er professional touch. Some minor quibbles the between-songs patter became a little too corny at times, but most patter does. Having Brock Smith err.cec from offstage for the Stratus Faction seemed a tittle impersonal. Some of the dance sequences seemed to be crowded back into the band; they might have worked bet- ter with more space. And why is there no coffee at intermission? By RICHARD BURKE Staff Writer Construction of a Coca Cola bottling plant at 2920 nth Ave. N. was approved by the Muni- cipal Planning Commission Wednesday. Details of the new plant are being witlihcld by the company pent'ing confirmation of an in- centive grant. Approval was given, subject lo approval by the engineering director of entrance and exit lo the plant property. MPC also approved a Frand- scn Developments request for permission to construct 35 town units at 20th Ave. and 35lh st. S. subject to completion of ar- rangements wilh the city for in- stallation of all services. Nu-Mode Homes was grant- ed a permit to build four du- plexes in the 1600 Block of St. Andews Road N. after a dele- gation from the area voiced op- to the project. The group opposed having what they called low-cost hous- ing put in across the street from their property. They said they were concerned that such a move would cause devalua- tion of their property. Envin Adderley, executive director of the Oldman River Regional Planning Commission, said no distinction could be made between the experimen- tal housing in question and a regular duplex. He assured the delegation that the duplexes would not be of inferior quality. Walter Stewart of Nu-Mode Homes said there should be no discrimination against people who have lower incomes by forcing them to live in rows of low-cost housing.

Food was never reported lo be a problem. All of the camp- ers contributed what they could the summer camp. Mr. Tolley said Mr. afford to a general food fund. Aidie was purchased and cook- and park wardens were enthu- siastic about the summer pro- ject and they did everything they could to make it run helped eliminate problems re- i SMWrtMSjSESSa youths campgrounds, he said. The camp counsellor, How- ard Tolley, a second-year poli- tical science student at the University of Lethbridge, said, "We had few if any problems from the transients. In fact, many of the older transients helped keep things running smoothly. We bad no struc- tured hierarchy of rules and we didn't need any." David Rogers, a case worker for the John Howard Society in Lethbridge said the society became involved in the program in an attempt lo use the fa- cility for "open-air" treatment for juvenile offenders. Many 14 lo 16-year-old of- fenders from Spruce Cliff De- tention Home in Calgary at- tended. The change of environ- supplied the area with addi- tional picnic tables and fire wood and set up three new sanitary facilities. It was estimated nearly halt j j of the camp visitors were from 1 tlie United States and nearly) all of them were college and' university students out to see the country for the summer. Length of stay was not lim- ited and some persons ed in a communal kitchen. Mr. Tolley said the general attitude was to share and share alike. No one ever went hungry and many of the travellers do- nated food to the camp as they left. Though no future plans have been announced, all concerned said the hoped a similar camp eould be opened next year.
