Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 23, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta i4 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Monday, 23, 1974 Book bus coining Monday The book bus is coming to Lethbridge Sept. 30. Carrying books written and published by Canadians, the book bus is touring Western Canada and will be outside the Lethbridge public library from noon to 6 p.m. on the 30th. It's a project of the Indepen- dent Publishers Association, an organization of 80 Canadian publishing firms which seeks to promote interest in the literature of our country, and the Canada Council. The books are on display, say the book bus people, to "encourage awareness of the range, variety, and high quali- ty of books available through Canadian publishing houses." The book bus will be in other area communities this week and next: Trail, Sept. 24; Creston and Cranbrook on the 26th; Bellevue on the 27th and Pincher Creek on the 28th and at Taber Oct. 1. Now's time to get those dandelions Now is a good time to spray dandelions in lawns and other grassed areas. Stan Powers, weed specialist in charge of Alberta department of agriculture's urban and industrial vegeta- tion control programs, says deandelion plants continue to flower and reseed throughout the entire growing season. As the seeds scatter in the early summer, new plants begin to appear in late summer and early fall. It is much easier to kill these young plants than mature plants, he says. There is also less risk of damaging other plants in the garden through accidental spray drift or misapplication. Mr. Powers recommends spraying the dandelions with or one of the commer- cial mixtures that contain rnecoprop and dicamba. Because these herbicides are sold in various concentrations, it is important to follow the instructions. The seeds which haven't germinated yet won't be affected so the spray treat- ment will have to be repeated next spring.

Steve Kotch and Dennis O'Connell will go to Van- couver, Edmonton, Montreal and Ottawa next month to try to convince Air Canada and Ministry of Transport officials that Lethbridge should be on an east-west transcontinental air route by 1978. Timing of the trip, which will be made Oct. 3 to 8 is crucial, said Aid. Kotch, because the ball has to be started rolling now to get ex- pansion of the city's airport completed by 1978. Aid. Kotch said he and Mr. O'Connell, the city's director of business development and public relations, will back up their pitch with an updated report from the city's air tran- sport consultant, DataMetric of Calgary, which predicts an increased volume of potential east-west passenger traffic through Lethbridge because of industrial growth in the South. "As far as we are able to determine the figures now meet the suggested number of people that Air Canada re- quires on an east-west basis to establish transcontinental ser- vice by Aid. Kotch said. "If all goes Aid. Kotch added, "I'm hopeful we'll be able to approach the ministry of transport with Air Canada support for an up- grading of our airport runway and terminal facilities to ac- commodate DC-9's by 1978." "We would ask the MGT to include it in the treasury board requisition in 1975. It could go to tender in 1976 with a construction start in late 1976 and completion by late 1977 or early 1978." Doubling the length of Ke- nyon Field's main runway to a proposed or feet could cost to million, Aid. Kotch said.

GEORGE and ROD SAY: A wolf is a guy who whistles while he lurks. DRAFFIN'S DISPENSARY and DOWNTOWN International Festival, per- formed Sunday for an audience of about 60 people in the intimate atmosphere of the Lethbridge Public Library's gallery. The recital was sponsored by the Canadian Federation of Music Teachers' Association, the Lethbridge branch of Registered Music Teachers and the library board. The program began with Scarlatti's Sonata in E Major. The impression of lively, neat- fingered musicality, which ob- viously won the pianist his various awards, was fully con- firmed during this perfor- mance. If Scarlatti is to be played on the piano, one has to be PENNER'S PLUMBING 1209-2nd Ave. S. Phone 327-4121 careful not to succumb to the undesirable habits of either letting the texture become overblown or imitating the harpsichord. The artist managed to avoid these un- desirable extremes very successfully. However, he did adopt an excessively fast tempo on oc- casion which, despite his animation and lively touch, scarcely allowed the whirling scale passages to speak for themselves. Nevertheless, bis tonal value was apt and, despite what purists might feel about the sonata being played on the wrong instrument, his attractive and gentle cantabile quality made the performance an enjoyable one. The next number was Chopin's Fantaisie-Polonaise in A flat major. The artist ob- viously felt this music very deeply. However, he was never content to let the music speak for itself. The pianist was tense and the perfor- RODNEY Stti St. S. 327-MM Halg Medical Bid. 601 6th 3.

TrencpotlcDon to provided and there ere no enrollfnent coMs. mance seemed too idiosyncratic in timing, phras- ing and shading. The andante spirato had a lovely silken cantabile thread in the begin- ning, but the concluding chor- dal figure seemed to be over- insistent and over-worried by the pianist's ceaselessly ac- tive mind. However, the en- core revealed that Montgomery was quite a capable performer of Chopin. The first half of the program concluded with Beethoven's Sonata in A ma- jor, op. 101. Mr. Montgomery offered a superlative account of the brief and highly- concentrated first movement and adagio introduction. His trills in the march were for the most part incisive, but the tempo occasionally got the better of him. The furious, yet contained, assertion of the latter movement, as well as the finale, were projected with a power that was made even more telling by the ar- tist's technical capabilities. The second half of the program began with Bach's Partita No. 5 in G major. The artist seemed to possess a special vitality in this number. The way he imparted life to the ascending and descending scales in the preambulum. as well as his astonishing delicacy of touch, amazing agility and seeming- ly endless variety of nuances, gave pleasure one never dared to anticipate from such a young artist in this particular composer. ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC 329-4095 The recital concluded with Hindemith's Sonata No. 3 in B flat. Mr. Montgomery had ob- viously taken immense pains to assimilate and convey the subtleties of the composer's thoughts. His playing was sen- sitive, scholarly and technically impeccable. This piece represents a genre somewhat less familiar to recital audiences, but to me it was the highlight of the after- noon. Mr. Montgomery, though still very young, displayed a maturity far beyond his years. Judging from this perfor- mance, we may confidently predict a brilliant future for him. Lodge tender expected Construction of an addition to the Green Acres senior citizens" lodge is expected to begin by Nov. 20, ad- ministrator of Green Acres Foundation said Friday. Don LeBaron said the foun- dation had heard from the Alberta Housing Corporation that tenders would likely be out by Oct. 4 with construction beginning by Nov. 20. "It is expected the addition would take six months to build at a cost of about he said. The foundation is also ex- pecting a decision from the government within six weeks on the requests to build another home in Lethbridge and ante: in Could, then to Edmonton to talk with Don Dewar, the MOT's western regional chief, and then with the way cleared, to Montreal to talk with Air Canada's top brass and then to Ottawa for a meeting with Canadian Transport Commis- sion member E.

City Scene Ticket mystery solved The mystery of the parking ticket officer operating at College Mall has been cleared up and it appears the tickets were legitimate. The only vehicles ticketed in shopping centre lots are those parked in well-marked fire lanes. These vehicles contravene the city fire bylaw and the provincial Highway Traffic Act, City Manager Allister Findlay says in a report to council. Aid. Steve Kotch raised the matter at the last council meeting, saying College Mall merchants had complained to him that parking tickets were being handed out on the mall. 3 views of welfare offered A look at social assistance from three different points of view will be featured at Wednesday's Women's Place presenta- tion at the Lethbridge Public Library. The seminar, sponsored jointly by the Women's Place and the Lethbridge Public Library, starts at 8 p.m. and is open to the public. Speakers will be Ann McCormack, supervisor with the department of health and social development; Maureen Horan, social worker with the DHSD, and a Lethbridge woman living on welfare, who will explain her experiences and feelings about social assistance programs. A question and discussion period will follow. Truck routes opposed Northside residents are strongly opposed to truck routes on either 5th or 9th Avenues N. says a North Lethbridge city coun- cil candidate. Bob Tarleck said he's knocked on 600 northside doors so far in his campaign and has encountered uniform opposition to truck routes on either street. "The message is loud and he said. "The people I talk to feel council isn't taking a strong enough stand on 5th and 9th Avenues. "They say it should be made very clear to the truckers that there's no way the taxpayers will support turning 5th Avenue into a major arterial route." Vandals flatten tires Someone let the air out of 24 tires on cars parked in Beny's Used Car Lot early Sunday morning, according to city police. A police officer walking his beat was passing the car lot, at 2nd Avenue and 9th Street S., about a.m. Sunday and notic- ed a number of cars on the lot with flat tires. After checking the tires closely it was discovered all the valve stems had been removed. No suspects were found at the scene and city police are investigating.

Man remanded in drug case An 18-year-old Lethbridge man has pleaded not guilty in provincial court to a charge of possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking and has been remanded to Nov. 15 for a preliminary hearing. Gary Gold, 301 Spanish Village, was charged Aug. 21 after a man was found to be in possession of two ounces of marijuana at a city hotel. He is free on his own recognizance.
