One year later he moved to Ihe Ta'ber district as grader t opcralor, where he worked for j 10 years. In he moved to Lclli- ears. He started the Cardston area as a grader operator and in 1930 moved to the rOanlon- Claresholm district and worked bridge lo become one or the By HERB JOHNSON south Alberta dragline and back i stall Writer hoe operators for the depart-1 ment of highways. He worked Bill Archibald, right and new foreman R. G. Bishop Ihe area from the British Col- umbia border east lo Saskalcti. ewan border and from the Unit- ed States border north to Nan-1 ton. In 1957, Uie government start- ed the camp kitchen program and Mr. Archibald was re- sponsible for assisting in the construction of the kitchens and preparing the land for public use. In 1963 he was appointed fore- man of the immediate Leth- bridge area, responsible for maintenance, weed cutting, snow plowing and sanding. He had from six to 20 men working under him at the time of his retirement. His immediate superior. Joe Hanralian, said Mr. Archibald made only three claims on Workmen's Compensation, two for medical reasons. "He only collected one pay- ment from the fund and in all the years of his employment he never used one day of sick said Mr. Hanrahan. "There's not a better or more conscientious employee with the department." Mr. Archibald plans to live in Lethbridge with his wife Minnie. They have two sons. "If things become too boring, I'll be able to find part-time work." In wishing Mr. Archi bald good luck, Mr. Hanrahan said he hoped he would be able to do what he always wanted to live to 102 years of age. Minnie added, "I hope I put up with him for at least that Ions." the dark, ethereal sounds and is open from 9 a.m. until p.m. Monday through Friday until Oct. 4. The kinetic light sculpture display by Nicholas Roukes at the University of Lelhbridge art department what. Tlis exhibition opened Fri- day evening and the first-nigh- ters were obviously fascinated by what happens when 2flth century technology is applied to the art of sculpture. Consisting of nine works mounted on the walls and 1 r University choir starts rehearsals another six silting on the floor, the exhibition glows in an rver- i changing panorama of color. Most of the works on (lie wall "move" as the viewer moves, because of irregularities in the plastic surface. The larger floor niDur.teJ works require a littie more in- volvement by the viewer. One of the more popular ones Fri- day was Sonar Landscape, a plastic hemisphere fbat gives out variable pitch electronic sounds when anything comes near its upper surface. Move you hand over the "land- scape" and it responds witli its own particular kind of music. Another popular work was Laser Sculpture I. Unlike I he olhars, this one Is self-activat- ing. It consisls of 2 rotating red-colored laser beam inside a plastic octagon. As the beam rotates it sets up changing patterns of reflec- tions as it bounces off various surfaces within the octagon. Also popular was Kinetic Pulse, made of plastic rods that, through the use of mir- rors, appear to extend to in- finity in both directions. Turn on the switch and the rods light up and change colors. The key word in describing the exhibition is "involvement." Viewing it is not a matter of simply walking around admir- ing the various works. It is ne- cessary lo turn them on, and !n turn be turned on by them. The man responsible for the exlu'bition, Nicholas Roukes, teaches sculpture at Uie Uni- versity of Calgary. An author of hooks on sculpture, he has written one specifically on plastics, with which he has worked for some time. Although the exhibition Is open only during the week, Uie university art department is willing 7J consider arranging to have it opened for special showings on the weekend If a group cannot make it at any other time. The first rehearsal of the sea- son for the University of Lelh- bridge Choir is scheduled for Tuesday at p.m. in the Assumption School auditorium. The choir is looking for new members.

The choir was organized in 1967 by Prof. Lucien Needham, was its conductor until this j year. With Prof. Nccdham on sabbatical leave the post is being filled by Prof. Skipworth. A native of the Pacific North- west in the United States, Prof. Skipworth has degrees from the University of Oregon and I Central Washington State Coi- I lege. He has been active for manv years as a private voice teach- er and has appeared extensive- ly both as soloist and conduc- tor.

The caseworkers spend a good deal of time with the con- j vicl while he is still in jail. I He becomes a real friend. I offering encourage m e n t and I helping the prisoner formulate a plan of rehabilitation which j will make it easier for him to adjust to his community. In some areas this is done through half way homes, where several released men share accommodation while they seek work or further their education. In Lethbridge the John How- ard Society, in spite of a con- I scientious, hard working staff 1 and a concerned board of di- i rectors, has been in danger of j folding several times because I of financial difficulties. i Last year the United Appeal's objective was not reached, 50 all agencies, including Uie so- ciety had to revise their bud- gets. Recently a successful garden tour through several Lethbridge homes and gardens raised 5500 for the Society. The board is also considering a membership drive to encour- age more interest in the objec- tives of the society and also to help boost their funds. But the Society depends largely on United Appeal allo- cations to function effectively. Your contribution tliis year will go in part to guiding men "on the road back" to normal lives within their communities.
