Drlvo S. Phono 328-8161 "Tho Pioneer and Leading Retail Shop In Lethbridge"  FINEST QUALITY PASTRY AND lAKERY PRODUCTS Cigarette ad ban will cause problem By HERB JOHNSON Staff Writer The federal government's proposed ban on cigarette advertising, the subject of a meeting earlier this week between Health Minister John Munro and the Canadian Daily Newspaper Publishers Association, will have tangible financial repercussions for the local media. The CDNPA brief to Mr. Munro asked that the ban, scheduled for some time after the New Year, be replaced with federal control of "the content and form of cigarette advertising." Should the government decide not to allow the "informative" ads suggested by the association the media will have to cope with a loss in advertising revenue. John M c C o 11, manager of CJOC radio and television, said a preliminary estimate placed potential losses at $10,000 to $15,000 a year for radio and double that amount for televi sion. CJOC may be able to compensate for the loss in other areas, he said, but it was difficult to predict what might happen. He suggested the situation was comparable to the advertising of beer and wine, which Alberta broadcasters felt would not increase consumption, but would only influence brand changes. Mr. McColl added that if the federal government was really serious about the ban it should take steps to remove scenes involving smoking from television programs - an influence on young people more subtle and pervasive than direct advertising. The influence on brand-changing was also mentioned by Cleo Mowers, editor and publisher of The Lethbridge Herald. Mr. Mowers pointed out that an advertising ban would "freeze the cigarette industry the way it is now, and the brands and manufacturers now dominating the market will have no fear of new competition." He advocated control of the "persuasive factor" in cigarette advertising. "Young people should have some protection from the lie that it is stylish and proper and wise and healthful to smoke this or that or any other brand. On the other hand they might be told which brand is less harmful, and that is also a function of advertising.'' The loss in revenue should be irrelevant to the government policy - makers, if not to the media, he said. "If such advertising is essen tially harmful the newspapers have no right to the financial benefits of it." Harold Brown, CHEC radio manager, said he personally favored a ban on cigarette ad vertising, even if it meant an adverse economic effect on the station. CHEC was carrying no cigarette adver t i s i n g at the present time, he said, although it had done so from time to time. Economic reality was always a factor, he said, and he had never imposed a cigarette ad ban at CHEC even though he personally favored it. At CFCN-TV Manager Stan Bates said he could foresee no immediate effect on station programming but the industry as a whole would undoubtedly suffer from any ban. The loss of national advertis ing revenue would probably be reflected in equipment purchase cutbacks, he said, with an eventual loss in efficiency the result. He predicted the government would probably implement the ban in stages, as it had done | with Canadian content' rulings Judges in Lethbridge to view Japanese Garden Cities aren't just girders and streets says an Ottawa urban environment expert. Humphrey Carver, chairman of a six-man Vincent Massey-Canada Council awards committee in Lethbridge to view the Nikka Yuko Centennial Garden said, "Cities are places where people live and should be built to be enjoyed." Out of about 100 applications for the contest only 50 projects of various designs, purposes and types are being judged for the 15 nationally - publicized awards. The awards will be announced this fall. The .purpose of the awards is to recognize imaginative solutions to the problems of design in Canadian cities and towns, and to encourage private citizens and community Strike still possible Teachers, trustees await last award LETHBRIDGE VINEYARD - It may not be the kind of full-scale grape-growing operation one might find in California or Italy, but the grapes are real and they are growing right here in Lethbridge. The young gentleman with the green thumb is David Petkau, age three years, of 807 20th St. S. He planted the grapes last fall, using a slip he got from a friend. By the time he reaches the legal age of 18 David just might be ready for a big-time wine making operation. Frosty weather will continue says frosty weather man leaders in the discovery and achievement of excellence the urban environment. When judging a project the jury looks for the way people use and appreciate it, the success with which it serves many purposes, its design and its capacity to change as people's needs change. Each award presented will take the form of a distinctive marker to be erected on the site of the project. Don't blame any ski enthusiast who was late for work because he happened to get out of bed this morning at about six o'clock. He must have looked to the west and saw the entire range of the Rocky Mountains spread out before him with winters' cap on every peak. The snow came down Thursday morning spilling two inches at the Waterton Shell refinery. This moronig, the plant reports a bright sunny day with temperatures climbing. On the local scene, frost was reported heavy in different areas of southern Alberta with the city reporting about the same as other towns. The weatherman reports the temperature should climb some to bring a cool but calm week end for all sports buffs. For the Calgary, Lethbridge, Medicine Hat area, the tern peratures will be near 70 Saturday and Sunday with the lows near 35. The risk of frost continues for the forecast period. The dispute between the Alberta Teachers Association and the Southern Alberta School Authorities Association continues with a teachers' strike a distinct possibility. Representatives of ATA and SASAA met at the Park Plaza Motor Hotel Wednesday with an Alberta Labor Relations Board conciliator. Both sides are awaiting a conciliation award. Earlier, Ray Clark, president of the Alberta School Trustees' Association, had issued a. statement concerning the main point of contention, the ATA's demand for a consultation clause inclusion in collective agreements. Mr. Clark charged that the ATA's goal is not consultation in policy matters, but the power to control school systems. He added the boards do not feel teachers should have an exclusive right in making decisions which will affect other groups, such as students and taxpay ers. The statement was released after a meeting in Edmonton Monday of seven school au thorities' representatives. Mr. dark said further, "The idea that local teachers are free to make an agreement with their school board is a myth." He said the ATA is being con-fronted with a unified group of school boards "better-able to resist union demands which they think are unreasonable." The ATA does not feel its demands are unreasonable. Joe Berlando, ATA welfare officer, said they are seeking consultative rights for only those conditions, that is work ing conditions, affecting teach ers. He said a strike affecting teachers in the Lethbridge and Medicine Hat areas could be called before Christmas if an agreement is not reached. Teachers here have been working without contracts since the end of the 1969-70 school year. ATA president Walter L. Hughes added salaries and decision-making to the list of disputed issues. He said the ATA does not want a voice in all policy deci-ions made by the school boards. However, the group does feel teachers are in the best position to say what is required in the classrooms and "certainly have the same right as the public and governments in deciding on educational policies and standards." Mr. Clark disagrees. He says because school trustees are elected, they should be the sole educational policy makers, as members of school boards and representatives of the people. St. Mary district will improve canals The St. Mary River Irrigation District has called for tenders for the first of a two-part contract for the installation of $130,000 in drop structures. The tender call is for the precast cement construction and hauling of materials necessary for 15 drop structures. The tender for installation will be called later this fall. Jake Thiessen, manager of SMRD, said the total cost of the project is for rehabilitation of five miles of canals, three in the Eight Mile Lateral which is IVz miles north of Broxburn and two miles of the Cameron Lateral Vk miles north of Coaldale. The other contract for rehabilitation will mean tile drainage installation, regrading, rebuilding some banks and installation of plastic lining in some areas. Also to be called this fall Is a tender for construction of 5% miles of cement canals in the Bow Island, Medicine Hat and Cranford areas, estimated at about $180,000. Lethbridge CMHA needs volunteers for projects Accident damages heavy on Thursday The mentally handicapped are being further handicapped by a shortage of volunteers to help them. The Southern Region, Canadian Mental Health Association needs volunteers and drivers for service programs with the mentally -handicapped in Lethbridge and Raymond. Molly Mitchell, southern region CMHA executive officer says the winter schedule of service programs to the patients is "ready to go" but volunteers are still needed - particularly in teaching of crafts. Pharmacy Facts from O. C. STUBBS Over the years, we've found that many people tend to misunderstand the true meaning of the word "hypodermic". They are correct in their thinking i that hypodermic I means medicine, but what they so often do not u n d e rstand is that a hypodermic is so clas-liifed because of I the means by which it is placed in the body. So, let's set ib straight. An hypodermic is a medicine which is placed in the body by inject ing it under the skin. The word, itself, is a combination of two ancient, Greek words, "hypo" (under) and "derma" (skin) So any medicine which is in jected under the skin is called by the general word hypodermic. And, when you hear the words "hypodermic needle" being used, the speaker is re-fering to a syringe used to inject a dosage of medicine under the skin. Free parking? Of course.

An international association, girls and women who arrive in a strange city know they can get immediate help and direction from YW personnel at any time, and seek out the blue triangle sign, symbolic of YWs everywhere. The local YW is no exception, although for a number of years now it has had to function in facilities which are not adequate for a city growing as rapidly as Lethbridge. With 35 girls in residence and with many programs to carry on daily, the present location is severely strained. Operating on a shoe-string the YW nonetheless manages to offer several Blue Triangle clubs, teen programs, junior gym classes and a variety of craft clases. The community summer program is an annual event in cooperation with the parks and recreation department, the community college and the University of Lethbridge. Other YW activities include world service studies, an International Tea, dessert bridges and a membership drive. Funds are also raited through a "New to You" shop where new and used clothing and household articles are sold. Almost all work involved in this enterprise is voluntary. The YWCA depends in part for its support on United Appeal donations. But as an agency of the Appeal, if this year's comitment of $154,741 is not met, some of its work may have to be curtailed or go under review. In making your contribution to the United Appeal this year remember that these humanitarian agencies, such as the YW, have to deal with rising costs and shrinking dollars. It's not easy for them to bal ance their budgets, so give a little more-it goes a lone way, pital. Damage totalled $850. to both cars. Joe Frey, 15, of 422 27th St. S. received superficial injuries when the car driven by his mother, Lillion Agnes Frey, collided with a lamp standard at the intersection of 3rd Ave. and Mayor Magrath Drive shortly after 9 p.m. Damage totalled $850 to car and standard.
