Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - September 17, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 - THI IfTHMIDOl HERALD - Friday, September 17, 1971 CMHA flying Sept. 26 The Southern Region, Canadian Mental Health Associa tion, currently operating on the wrong side of the account ledger, will stage a fund raising flying project so that development of a winter program for the mentally ill will be assured at least until the end of 1971. A joint CMHA-Lethbridge Jaycee group is offering, for two cents per pound per person, a 20 minute flight over the city and district between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Sept. 26. According to airline companies and pilots, the best flying time is in the morning, when it is most likely to be calm and pleasant flying. As of July 31 the association had a deficit of $1,555 preventing them from carrying out their planned service and education programs. Another project, a gypsy tea complete with costumed roving musicians, will take place at the home of Leonard Haney, five miles east of Picture Butte, Sept. 22. Fortune telling and magical displays will also be featured at the event which begins at 2:30 p.m. Admission is a silver collection.

Winter is just around the corner ....... p.24 LOWNEY'S BRIDGE MIX Taste-tempting, chocolate coated candies lb. 0  Joseph Edward Sharpadze,! 22, of Brockett was sentenced to one year in the Lethbridge Correctional Institute after he was found guilty of indecently assaulting a young woman. Court was told the charge resulted from an Aug. 4 incident in which a local secretary was confronted by Sharpadze while she was alone in a Lethbridge office. The young woman said Sharpadze had manoeu-vered her into a corner of the office, where he began to rub has body against hers. She said, "He told me if I did not do what he wanted he would rape me." Court was told Sharpadze had a previous conviction for gross indecency, which resulted from an incident with a young boy. Psychiatric treatment at that time seemed to have had little effect. The defense lawyer, Harge Suga, said there was no explanation for Sharpadze's actions other than an excessive amount to drink. He pointed out Sharpadze, a semi-professional wrestler, had used no violence. TROPICAL HOUSE PLANTS Add fresh beauty to your home all year. Vh" pots.

Hudson said there were three major considerations about sentencing which a judge must accept, including the chance of rehabilitation of the person, the deterrent force the sentence would have on other persons inclined to commit the same act, and the protection of society. Judge Hudson said there appeared to be little chance for rehabilitation and a person with similar problems would not be deterred by any sentence, no matter how strict. He was left the alternative of deciding how society could best be protected. The judge said he would have sentenced Sharpadze to the penitentiary if he believed he would receive better psychiatric help, but all existing reports demonstrated he would not. He said he did not like to punish a man for something over which he may have no control, but he had to consider his duty to give protection to young boys, secretaries alone in offices and the public in general. By HERB JOHNSON Staff Witter An electrode music laboratory at the University of Lethbridge? It may sound like a rather ambitious project for a young and fairly small university, but it is soon to become a reality. The initial equipment that will form the nucleus of the lab is scheduled to arrive soon and it is hoped to have courses in electronic music available to the students next semester. Professor Dean Blair, chairman of the. university's music department, feels electronic music is not the only thing that is happening in contemporary music, but it should, as a vital part of 20th century music, be made available to local students. He said the major piece of equipment would be a synthesizer, complete with keyboard, Tape recorders will provide the means for recording and dubbing the sounds into musical compositions. More equipment will be added as tone goes by. Prof, Blair said he expected staff and students' skill in using the equipment would also develop as they had time to experiment with the possibilities offered by the lab facilities. He said he personally preferred to hear electronic music used in conjunction with live performers. While composers can obtain different sounds very precisely in using electronic means, lack of the human element present in live performance detracts from many electronic presentations. , Dr. Kenneth Hicken, one of four faculty members in the music deparmtent, will be in charge of the laboratory, The lab is one of two projects Prof. Blair, as new department Winter sports show display planned by south ski patrol Businessmen connected with winter sports have been invited to participate with product displays in a Canadian Ski Patrol System fund raising program in Lethbridge, called Countdown to Winter '72. The program, to be held in the Yates Memorial Centre Oct. 30 is to consist of commercial displays, ski films and a ski swap. All proceeds will be used by the Southern Alberta zone of the Canadian Ski Patrol System to meet operating expenses for the coming season. The Canadian Ski Patrol System is a non-profit, all volunteer organization. The function of the patrol is to serve the skiing public. Services include first aid and ftmergency transportation of injured skiers from the slopes to the lodge facilities, promotion of ski safety and information about the particular ski area being served. For further information or confirmation of displays please call Bryan Wilson at 328-8293 or Ted Dawson at 328-7081. Final deadline for confirmation is Oct. 1, 3971.

Another, which he hopes will come to fruition next year, is a bachelor of music program for the talented student. At present the department offers a bachelor of arts degree. The student majoring in music can take only a limited number of music courses. The proposed B. Mus. program would allow the department to give intensive training to budding young professional musicians, he said. The dpart- ment already has the necessary curriculum. Outside
