French Canada studies sel SASKATOON ICP) A pro- gram in French-Canadian studies, the only one of i'.s kind in Western Canada, will be in- troduced at the University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon. The program, approved by the university senate, awaits en- dorsation by (he Saskatoon Campus Council and' therefore cannot be officially established until 1972. However, interested students may begin choosing suitable classes this fall. The program combines classes in the language, history, social culture, political philoso- phy, institutions, literature and other cultural aspects of French Canada. It would extend over four years and students would qual if} for an advanced bachelor of arts degree. By a suitable choice of elective classes, they may take a double major with specialization in FrenchCana- dian studies and one of French language, history or political science. Prof. Moniquc Gennisl, who represents the department of French and Spanish on 'he com- mittee administering the plan, said in an interview that inter- est in French-Canadian studies has been increasing.

Prof. Gemust said all of the classes offered by Ihe French department, and possibly some of the others, will be taught in French. She added that students in the program will have the opportunity to learn to speak and write the language well. -Vern Decoux Photo CONDUCTS SURVEY Garry Lawrence of Bellevuc studies a rock laken from Jhe Crowsnest River al 'he easl end of Blairmore as part of a program being conducted in the area- Two gro jps of youths, financed by Oppor- tunities For Youth, are working on the Oldman River drainage system.
