Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 22, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE September United Way blitz using messengers About 4.750 homes in the north side of the city have been contacted for their contributions to United Way, Al Purvis, executive director of the organization, which of- ficially kicks off its campaign Monday, says. And he expects that homes on the south side of the city will be contacted by tonight. New procedures introduced for the first time in Alberta have enabled the United Way to launch its canvass of residences ahead of schedule. In place of volunteers a messenger service is being employed to drop pint size containers in a blitz of 12.000 residences. The containers will be collected between Oct. 15 and Oct. 17. A messenger service collects the containers at the United Way office and dis- tributes them to 102 children, who are being paid to travel from door to door within their area of the city. In addition homeowners are given brief Ginsberg to speak Lewis N. Ginsburg, a Calgary rabbi, will be the featured speaker Monday at the Lethbridge United Way kick-off luncheon. Rabbi Ginsburg will addrei-s campaign volunteers at Sven K r i c k s e n s Family Restaurant. The campaign, involving about 200 volunteers in the business canvass, hopes to collect more than the 1972 figure of letters stating they are not be- ing asked to contribute if they are planning to contribute at work. Although the system is new to Alberta it has been tried with success in Regina for a number of years, says Mr. Purvis. Contributions have averaged about per home owner, he says. The business canvass begins Monday, with about 180 can- vassers to be used, says Mr. Purvis. A training session was held Wednesday night for can- vassers. About 40 persons attended. About half have had previous canvassing ex- perience, he says. Mr. Purvis hopes to hold a brief training session Monday in conjunction with the noon kick-off luncheon at Sven Ericksen' Restaurant.

Norm Harries said the problem caused when cattle are brought to lush pastures from poor grazing conditions, is quite familiar to Alberta veterinarians. The exact cause isn't under- stood but it is believed toxic substances in the new grass are able to damage the cow's lungs, said Dr. Harries. Emphysema is the state produced when air breaks through the lung passages into the supporting tissue of.these organs. Large pockets of gas form which seriously interfere with breathing. Affected cows are seen to breathe heavily especially after being driven and in severe cases it is dangerous to trv to catch the animal for treatment since it might drop dead from over-exertion. Dr. Harries said treatment is not altogether satisfactory particularly when the disease is in the advanced stage and such animals are better left alone. Pulmonary emphysema could be a big problem this year because of the dry summer and recent rains which will stimulate regrowth in pastures, he said. Farmers should be more cautious of pasture changes where one is poor and the other very lush. Preventive measures such as allowing animals gradual access to new pastures is rarely practical in this area. Since there is no way of ac- curately predicting outbreaks. farmers should contact a veterinarian if pasture changes are contemplated. When animals are on the new pasture, close supervi- sion is needed and if problems noticed, veterinary advice quickly sought. A little marching room The Lethbridge Collegiate Institute band needed a little marching room so they took to the street Friday. They have their instruments at the rest position here and appear to be con- centrating on getting the right feet going at the right time. They're succeeding too see for yourself. ''Run welfare at local level9 Health and Social Develop- ment Minister Neil Crawford has been told municipalities should continue the ad- ministration of public assistance. Earl Foxall, secretary of the Barons-Eureka Health and Social Services Board, told the minister that welfare programs can be run more successfully at the local level. "The he said, "has to be at the local level to do the people the most good." The health unit board was meeting with Mr. Crawford to voice its concerns that public assistance plans will be taken over by the provincial government. John Boon, director of the unit's social services department, said "It must a strange situation when everyone else is pushing thi: responsibility away from them" and we're asking to keep it. However, he said he could see why many municipalities; want to get rid of public assistance .plans they don'i; have adequate personnel. "But in this situation, we can handle he continued.

COLLEGE MALL TABER Bright Seraphim from Sam- son. One could- not have wished for a fuller, broader kind of tone in the opening recitative. Apart from a tendency to flatten. Miss Burrows showed a remarkable interpretive un- derstanding for the dark grief of Dido's lament. Her render- ing of Handel's Bright Seraphim was excellent until pressure brought a certain un- gainliness in the crescendo passages, causing her to screech in the upper register. A pity, since Miss Burrows is the possessor of a gloriously beautiful voice. The next number was Chopin's Nocturne opus 48. Mr. Syer was a well- intentioned pianist, but went a little too far in his eagerness to make each expressive point, thus replacing noctur- nal mystery with a rather ob- vious kind of daylight realism. The delicacy and finesse of Rachmaninov's Prelude was absolutely spell binding. Miss Burrows went on to sing three of Brahm's songs. Meine Liebe 1st Grun, Krinnerung, and 0 Liebliche Wangen. The deeper, more serious song. Erinnerung showed the artist to be full of vitality and of response to Brahms imagination. However, the lighter songs were less successful. Added to tempo and intonation problems. Miss Burrows seemed to be endeavoring to make the most of music the essence of which is restraint. One could not help but wish the artist had let the music speak a little more for itself, as by trying to underline the poetry, she only succeeded in blurring it. Unfortunately, many blemishes on truly ex- MOVING? cellent recitals stem from this root cause. The first half of the program concluded with the Intermezzo Opus 118 and the Rhapsody Opus 119 by Brahms. Mr. Syer had the right kind of intimacy in the Intermezzo, and his refusal to overdo the central "moment of hope" was most im- pressive. He was perceptive enough to keep a lot in reserve for the real climax later in the section. The Rhapsody was a little too relaxed in the lyrical episodes, but his cantabile tone and his phrasing provided a beautiful compensation for lack of tension. The next three numbers were the operatic arias Dove Sono, Senze Mamma, and Caro Nome, by Mozart, Pic- cini and Verdi. This is a much heavier voice than we usually encounter in the coloratura role, perhaps more of a dramatic soprano capable of agility. However, Miss Burrows' portrait of the Puccini heroine was particularity affecting and similarly her ability to control the finest hairpin crescendos and dimenuendos in Dove Sono and Caro Nome captivated ear and mind. I could not help but feel that her intonation problems were due to fatigue. Mr. Syer went on to play Prokofiev's Sonata No. 3. The pianist's handling of this very muscular piece left us in no doubt of his ternpermental af- finity to the composer. There must be a special word of praise for Mr. Syer for his consistently musical and sympathetic accom- paniments throughout the recital. The evening concluded with three delightful songs. The Land of Dreams, the Early Morning, and the Russian Nightingale. Once again, Miss Burrows imbued her songs with an extraordinary depth of feeling and purity of tone. An already captivated audience showed their appreciation by demanding several encores. BERGMAN'S FLOOR COVERINGS Custom Installations Ph. 328-0372 2716 12 Ave. S. NORTH PLAZA FLORIST 61813th St. N.

A brief supporting the board's position states the combination enables case workers to examine the entire problem, rather than a small segment of it. "Any social worker and any agency who would render financial assistance without looking at the total problem is simply not doing the job To have financial assistance without proper social work is an invitation to further the brief states. Mr. Boon told the minister the board feels it is saving money by integrating health and social service programs. Mr. Crawford responded by saying that no firm decision has been taken regarding provincial take-over of welfare programs and that he would consider the board's re- quest.
