PHONE 327-2822 plication of service between Lethbridge, Calgary and Ed- monton. Steve Kotch, president and general manager of Northern Bus Lines, said he was advised by a member of the traffic board that all the letters of support for the company's ap- plication were not going to be considered as admissible evi- dence by the board. He said the board has blat- antly discredited the efforts made by representations from the majority of the cities in the province that will be af- fected by the application. Letters of support were sent from Lethbridge city council, the chamber of commerce, the Travel and Convention Associa- tion of Southern Alberta, the Transportation Authority of the city of Calgary, various Edmon- ton interests and included peti- tions signed by Alberta resi- dents, said Mr. Kotch. He said immediately after the defeat of the Social Credit government in Alberta on Sept. 7, Greyhound Bus Lines started a VIP daily scheduled deluxe express passenger ser- vice between the three cities, featuring lunches served by a stewardess, generally using all of the ideas in Northern Bus Lines' application to the board. "The board has for a second time postponed the hearing, by changing the rules of procedure of which it originally told Northern to said Mr. Kotch. In expressing extreme dis- pleasure with the "manipula- Mr. Kotch said he be- lieves Greyhound's monopoly over all of the major intercity routes in the province is a very unhealthy business prac- tice to allow to exist. "The travelling public should have the right to pick between two bus companies at he said. He said he is hopeful the new Progressive Conservative government will make an elec- tion promise come true and support smaller business en- terprises like Northern. Even with the new sendee started by Greyhound, Mr. Kotch said Northern will still apply to the traffic board for franchise rights in direct com- petition with the American- owned firm. HIGH RISE SWIMMING POOL Lethbridge's first and only elevated swimming pool was poured Friday at the second floor level of the Holiday Inn in Holiday Village. The 20 by 50-foot pool is composed of 12 tons of reinforcing steel and 150 tons of concrete. Glass doors south of the swimming pool will open onto a terrace for lounging during the warm weather. The pool is four feet deep at the shallow end and 5Vi feet deep at the other end. Con- struction of the Holiday Inn, set baCn a month when the wall of an adjacent building collapsed, is gradually get- ting back on schedule. The second floor was expected to be completed tonight with the pouring of 200 yards of concrete. A floor a week is to be completed with a target of Nov. 20 for having the roof on the ninth storey com- pleted, said developer Art -Bryan Wilson Photo Youth Theatre ranks swell to 80 ANGLO DISTRIBUTORS STEREO PHOTOGRAPHIC CENTRE 419 5th Street S.

The group, started in May.of last year, had its fall organi- zational meeting Thursday at the Bovvman Arts Centre. Joan Waterfield, LYT direc- tor, reports about 20 young people turned out to join thej group for the first time, enough i to compensate for the loss of older members who have left the group. Total enrolment stands at about 80. A meeting of the full mem- Weekend bus schedule to west side A weekend bus schedule to the University of Lethbridge West Campus went into effect today. There will be five bus runs Saturdays, the first leaving 4th Ave. and 6th St. S. at a.m., with subsequent runs at and p.m. The last bus leaves the campus at p.m. Sunday four runs will be at 10 a.m.. and p.m. with the last bus leaving campus at 10 p.m. bership, at which old and new students can get to know each other, is set for Friday. Par- ents, too, are involved to some extent; they are called in to perform needed odd jobs (such as script typing) related to the group's activities. Youth Theatre began when competitors in the Southwest- ern Alberta High School Drama Festival approached the Allied Arts Council for a chance to acquire further training in drama. Mrs. Waterfield, well-known as an actress and the council's business manager, took over as director, with about 30 students in tile first classes. Most of those enrolled are high school students, although the official age group is from 13 to 30. Mrs. Waterfield stresses that the LYT is not a production company, as such. The main idea behind the classes is to produce new life for commun- ity theatre. The knowledge gained through involvement in the group's training sessions will, she hopes, be taken back to the schools, universities and any place the youngsters may become involved in theatrical productions. Youths steal car Freedom short for jail escapers Freedom was short lived for two youths who escaped from city police cells Friday night. Jean Charles Golish, 18, and Ronald James Keliington, 17, made their break for freedom about 9 p.m. and were back in custody by p.m. Details of the escape are still sketchy. Police Chief J. H. Car- penter said the circumstances of the break are still under in- vestigation, although police are "fairly sure" they know what happened. Inspector Max Coupland told The Herald Uie pair was ap- prehended after a city patrol- man noticed a car on Mayor MagraUl Drive they had ap- parently stolen. The patrolman chased the car west on Scenic Drive and recaptured the Community College, youths west of the Lethbridge Accident damages total A two-car accident at 4 p.m. Friday caused damage to vehicles driven by Alzina McDougall of Lethbridge and Frank Szabo of Stirling. The accident occurred on the Courts Highway a mile east of the drive-in theatre. There were only minor in- juries. A four-vehicle accident at Golish and Kcllington were being held in city police cells pending the arrival of an RCMP escort from Duncan, B.C., to return them to face charges in that province. The youths had escaped cus- tody of (lie Victoria Juvenile Detention Centre and were arrested by the Taber town po- lice early Wednesday and charged with possession of sto- len property. They were being held at Lethbridge Correctional Insti- tute when it was learned they had stolen a car and other goods in Duncan. A court order Friday mor- ning released the pair from th6 charge of possession of stolen property so they could be re- turned to Duncan to face charges there. Chief Carpenter said the es- cape Ls the third he can recall within the past 20 years. There was one case, he said, in which a prisoner simply hid in the toilet while the guards were locking up. He then wait- ed until the coast was clear and made his escape. ji anlther case a prisoner ducked past the guard and made a dash for freedom. In all cases the prisoners were back in their cells within a couple of hours. STRETCH STITCHES The group does, however, do j eludes a small, intimate the- some theatre for children in atre the type that is ideal j the gallery at the Bowman Arts Centre during Book Fest i v a 1 Month November this year. The Shoestring Players plan tliree shows to be held on a Saturday in November. Mrs. Waterfield has an especial en- thusiasm for threatre for chil- for this kind of work. She is also enthusiastic about the way young people have re- acted to the youth theatre pro- gram. It's "a maturing thing" for them, she says, helping them to grow as individual human dren; she talks in glowing j beings md lcarn more about terms of what could be the relatjonsnjps involved in plished in this area if Jjeth- bridge's new public library in- to her stu. dents the importance everyone makes to any theatrical produc- tion the backstage crews as well as those who are actually out in front of the audience.
