18 THE LFTHBRIDGE HERALD Wtdrmdoy, September 11, Giri Guides given lift by city United Appeal By MARGAIIET MJCKIIURST Staff Writer Girl Guides' promise is, "To do our duty (o God and the Queen, lo help other people at all Limes and to obey the Guide Law.' Their motto is. "Be Prepared." These seem like formidable pledges for young girls to ad- here to, but the girls who join the Girl Guide movement do riot find them so. They are intent on becoming good citizens, with practical qualities to help them meet many difficult situations. Under the supervision of vol- untary leaders, the girls are taught the values of loyalty, friendship, courtesy, kindness, obedience, thrift and useful- ness. They are trained in I lie rudiments of household man- agement, first-aid and handi- craft. Because they nre a part of a w o r 1 d-wido sisterhood, Girl Guides share interests which encourage them lo become knowledgeable of other cultures and ways of living which arc quite different from their own. Although Guides primarily are engaged in preparing themselves for life, it's not all work. They have fun times in their weekly programs and always look forward to the promise of a few days at summer camp. Their projects too can be fun, especially when they have the opportunity ot collecting and fixing toys for children in hos- pitals or when thev visit hospi- tals and help cheer lip Uie pa- tients. Guiding in Canada is more than CO years old. It's difficult lo find figures on just how many girls have been Involved in the program in that lime, but it must number in the hundreds of thousands. To assist its leaders in build- ing good citizens the Girl Guide movement needs a help- ing hand from the public, and is a Uniled Appeal agency Your contribution to Uie Uni- ted Appeal mil help train young girls in many useful ways through membership in the Girl Guides. White Heather performance captivates 960 bonny fans By RIC SWIHART Staff Writer The hands and hearts of 960 people went out to the mem- bers of the White Heather Scot- tish Company at the Para- mount Theatre Tuesday night, with "Mr. Entertainment" An- dy Stewart captivating the ca- pacity audience. As with the past 26 perform- ances over a 22-year span in Lethbridge, a rousing opening welcome trumpeted better things to come and three hours later the professional touch of performers enjoying what they know best brought rave notices with overwhelming applause for each and every act. Switching from jokes to songs lo impressions in various spots during the show, Mr. Stewart was guilty of causing side grabbing, eye dabbing and murmuring from every comer of the theatre as he whirled, danced and pranced his way through routine after routine. If there was a drawback it was purely geographical as some of his dialogue, good as it may have been, was meant for the ear tuned to a Scottish brogue. Accordionist Jimmy Blue brought his instrument and ev- erything else for the audience except the "blues" with toe tap- ping, hand clapping renditions of Dark Isle. Blue Blue Pol- ka and various reels and jigs. LCC will teach Tibetans recently arrived at Taber The school of continuing edu- cation at the Lethbridge Com- munity College is making final preparations for teaching an- other group of Tibetan families who have recenUy arrived in the Taber district of southern Alberta. Approximately 25 men, wo- men and children, forced out of Tibet because of political un- rest will begin a 16-week, spe- cial-education course next Mon- day. Keith Robin, LCC director of continuing education, said the courses to be taught are de- signed to help the Tibetans ad- just to a new way of life in Canada. Humane Society meets tonight The recently formed Leth- bridge and District Humane So- ciety will hold an organizational meeting tonight at in Room l, Civic Sports Centre. Main purpose of the meeting will be selection of an execu- tive. A story in Monday's Herald incorrectly said the meeting was being held by the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The Humane Society is not connected with the SPCA. The courses include basic English and mathematics, a study of the Canadian mone- tary system, how to dress lor the Canadian climale, nutrition cooking and an introduction to modern kitchen appliances. Basic agriculture and driver training will also be included. Mr. Robin said the problem of communication has been an- ticipated. "There may be some of them who speak a little English. If there are, we'll work with them and develop communications that way. "If no one speaks English, Canada Manpower has agreed to provide an interpreter." One feature of the program, Mr. Robin said, is that the en- tire family will be educated. A group of about 21 Tibetans received similar instruction when they arrived in the Taber district earlier this year. They are now working on farms in the area, but Mr. Robin said at least some of them may be brought back to school for more advanced stu- dies during December and Jan- uary. The courses will be taught by three instructors. Classes will be held for six hours a day in the Taber Recreation Cen- tre. Do you want to your child's about God?

Nancy Hays, an Edmonton native with teaching expe- rience in Hollywood, provided Scottish dancing, with the ac- companiment of pianist Mark Simpson and Mr. Blue, of championship calibre to va- rious renditions of what covid only be traditional music mi- nus the bagpipes.

Billed as "a bonnie lass with a beautiful voice." soprano Anna Desli asked lor and re- ceived audience participalion on numerous old-time favorites like These Are My Mountains, Grannies Highland Heme. Tenor Alex Morrison singing the Song of the Clyde and The Tartan reached out to the crowd. The spine-tingling per- formance of tliis man seemed to allow the theatre-goers to forget the daily chores of ev- e.vday living. He was able lo put real feel- ing to his songs, aided by Mr. Si., .pson in all parts. He was one of the crowd favorites sim- ply because of the excellence of his performance. Jimmy Warren, tour man- ager, said there have been about 200 artists with the com- pany since the White Heather shoTO started performances in Lethhridge.

The Landers, who operate a farm near Cardston, have Uie ability to link past ex- perience with modern trends in farm and ranch management, which is largely responsible for Uioir success. Some of the community or- ganizations and services in- cluded on the Lander's list are the Western Stock Growers As- sociation, Cardston Agricul- tural Society, Unifarm, tele- phone board, Rural Electrifica- tion Associalion, Cardston Chamber of Commerce, Pa- cific North West Tourist As- sociation, Rotary, Elks Club, Rodeo Historical Society.
