Counsellor Aide Grads Told Education, Culture Inseparable Says Promise Of BA Degree Retracted U of L Tigeon-Hole System' Claims Student Of Ceramics By RICK SWIHART Staff Writer Education is a cultural phe- nomenon as viewed by an an Homeowner Grants Arrive Homeowner grants totalling were received at city hall Wednesday. The amount represents only a small portion of the first batch of grant applications sent to the provincial government several weeks ago. The grants are now being pro- cessed. Homeowners whose tax- es were paid in full, as is done when they are paid by mort- gage companies, should be re- ceiving the grants soon. Those who left a balance owing on their taxes will have the grant applied as a rebate. The amount of grant for pen- sioners is thropologist and this is per haps the more realistic way o said Leroy Littl Bear.speaking at the gradua Bon exercises for Canada's firs Indian Counsellor-Aide course. "Education is a' method c passing on information from the past which gives a con tinuity to the culture of th community of people bein; he said.

By JOAN BOWMAN Staff Writer A fourth-year University Lethbridge student, who has had five ceramic works ac- cepted in an international art competition in Italy, has charged the U of L with bein "pigeon-hole system." John Ikeda of Lethbridge, 21 said the university promisee him a BA after completion two courses this summer, bu has since retracted the promis because he did not have the de- sired combination of major an elective subjects. He said he will have com pleted 10 elcctives and 20 ma jors by the end of the sum mer, but the university woul allow no deviation from its re- quirement of 15 electives "I have found my interes If I'm forced ti take electives to broaden m mind, as they say, it will hint er concentration in my area. Mr. Ikeda said he had bee accepted for graduate studi work at the University of Colo rado and California Institute Arts and Crafts. However neither institution will accep him without a degree. He said the secretary in Dr James Penton's office (form erly assistant to the dean the arts- and science faculty fo student affairs) had indieatec any two courses taken this summer would fill the bill fo a degree. He is currently taking tw courses in art, his major, bu the university rejected them A petition submitted in late spring, with ah attached rec ommendation by art depart ment chairman Herbert Hicks had "carried no weight." The review committee of !he faculty of arts and science sail giving Mr. Ikeda bis degree "would set a he said. "The U of L talks about freedom of the individual, but it's obvious that it really doesn't care. "It's even worse when they said I was going to get a de- gree and then dumped it. I'll have to come back next year to take another five subjects (not in art) to make me a 'well-rounded person.' But no- thing makes a person as well- rounded as art.'" Mr. Ikeda had five of six ceramic works accepted into the 28th International Competi- tion of Artistic Ceramics, cur- rently on display to Oct. 4, at. Faenza, Italy. His work will be eligible for awards, chosen by a panel of seven distinguished artists. "This university has it fig- ured out that art is making Official Of ASTA Resigns Dr. Donald A.

They think it's a playtime ac- tivity. "The university's a system, just like it was in high school. I had to take subjects I hated to matriculate. Of my high school courses, I've studied only English since I left. "No one is at my level here. I've gone as far as I can go and I think the art department backs me. "All I want to do is get my degree and get out."
