Damage In Accident Near Coaldale John Rempel of Coaldale re- ceived minor injuries Wednes- day in a four-vehicle accident one mile west of Coaldale. According to RCMP, the ac- cident occurred when a camp- er-bus driven by Gary Lane of Manitoba was mistaken for an unloading school bus by Mr. Rempel, who proceeded to stop behind the bus. Mr. Rempel's vehicle was then struck from behind by a car driven by John Seimehs, Coaldale. Mr. Sei- mens' vehicle, was in turn struck by a car driven by Ray- mond Borthwick of Coaldale. Mr. Rempel did not require bospitalization, and no other in- juries were reported from the incident. Damage was esti- mated at ily and two-family dwellings. The application of (Engineer- ed Homes Ltd. is to be refer- red to council. The area to be subdivided is west of 6th St. N. and north of 9th Ave. N. Included are 72 lots for single-family dwellings and 14 for semi-detached or du- plex units. A spokesman for Engineered Homes said 10 .of the lots will be used for low-cost experimen- tal housing. These are being purchased from the city at XT front foot, plus per foot [or services. In addition to tlie city's spe- cial low land price for the hous- ng program, the federal gov- ernment has made available at 7% per cent inter- est and the province is giving two per cent subsidy that brings the rate down to 5% per cent. The spokesman said approval or the project should lake rom four to six weeks and the earliest date for a start on con- struction would be Sept. 15. A subdivision application for 160-acre parcel of land south of the junction of Highways 3A and 25 was refused on the rec- ommendation of Envin Adder- ey, executive director of the )ldman River Regional Plan- ning Commission. The grounds for refusal were tiat the area is within the new imits of the city on the west ide-and no plan of subdivision las been prepared for the area. The commission is the final uthority on subdivision appli- ations.

PHONE 328-3388 ELECTROCUTED BIRD-This dead owl, located near the Coutts highway south of Lethbridge, exhibits the telltale burnt-off talons and legs caused by electrocution, apparently from an uninsulated transformer. The provincial fish and wildlife department reports eagles, hawks and owls run a greater risk of electrocution because they sit on the higher uninsulated wires to keep an eye out for prey. It is thought the birds may make contact with old ground wires on the side of the poles. No estimates are kept by the department as to the number of birds killed this way, or by colliding with cars, although a spokesman said the number is not of "massacre" level.

Earl, formerly of Cardston, has been appointed a leadership development spe- cialist with the Alberta depart- ment of youlh in Edmonton, the department has announced. Mr. Earl graduated from the University of Utah, in Salt Lake City with a master's degree in social work specializing in group dynamics and com- munity organization. He worked for several years with the Navajo Indians in the southwestern United States and ias also worked with the YMCA. For three years lie was employed by the department of social development as a social worker in .programs designed 'or tlie rehabilitation of dis- urbed children. trained native people from the reserve who will operate the Superette on behalf of tHe Blood Band. The Blood band council began negotiations, by way of a resolution last February, to ob- tain management assistance to operate the store. With the assistance of Eric Connelly, live for Calgary representa- Canadian Executive Sendee Overseas, the Blood council met with Canada Safe- way Limited, which offered to act in the role of consultant in assisting the administration to plan the layout of the 60-foot by 30-foot building, and in training staff. As part of the training, six members of the reserve took on-the-job training at the Safe- way stores in Lethbridge as cashiers, meat cutters, meat wrappers and clerks. Vern Spence, a 10-year man with Safeway, was placed at the disposal of the Blood ad- ministration for a period of one year at the company's expense serve as a manager trainer and to act in the role of con- sultant for the store manager Richard Mills. A modern supermarket ap- proach has been applied to the store, with modern fixtures and self serve shelves, to provide customers with quality mer- chandise at low competitive >rices. Since the Superette is owned and operated by the Bloods, all Blood Indians are owners. It is expected most will take ad- vantage of their own store. An added feature will be the distri- bution of profits to customers. Profits will be accumulated on a yearly basis, with the Blood administration retaining a portion and the remainder distributed1 to customers of the store based on the amount of purchases. Representing Canada Safe- way Limited at the opening were: Tony Anselmo, prairie region manager; Norm Knebel, zone manager in control of Cal- gary, Lethbridge, Cranbrook, Medicine Hat, and Banff; Elmer Wolf, zone meat merchandiser; Bob Falls, zone produce merchandiser; and IVIrs. Pat Hodgson, zone per- sonnel manager. 'Exciting Challenges7 Lethbridge's University; Past, Present, Future By JIM WILSON Education Writer The future of the University of Lethbridge holds many ex citing challenges, not the least of which is to continue to be "a humanistic university tha gives the individual the oppor- utnity to develop on his own." And, added Dr. Bill Beckcl. U of L acting president in the final university summer lecture series meeting Wednesday "we'll try to develop a balance between bureaucracy and anar- chy a healthy tension which we now have and I hope con- tinues." More than 60 people gatherec to hear Dr. Beckel's address, in which he traced the pasi development of the U of L, ex- amined its present circum- stances and predicted some of its future. "There was always a vision of a university in Lethbridge in the minds of the founders oi the Lethbridge Junior he said, "and it is a real credit to those people of vision that they looked at the junior col- lege system in California and decided Lehtbridge could be a focus of a similar college for southern Alberta." This resulted in the forma- tion of LJC, he said, which just last year was incorporated under the new Colleges Act and changed its name to the Leth- >ridge Community College. (Eventually LJC was offering two of the three years required for a university degree in some programs, with transfer ar- to the University of Al- berta. "At the time there was con- siderable agitation in Leth- bridge to establish a third de- gree-granting campus for Al- >erta Dr. Beekel said. "In 1966 there was an auspi- cious development for the uni- versity Dr. Beekel said. 'The Universities Act was re- vised, and it specifically de- "incd how universities would op- erate and be set up in the prov- ince." Because of the stipulations of the new act, ths U of L was lesignated a separate and in- dependent institution when it vas approved by the govern- ment in 19G6. "If it had been approved only me year earlier, it might have ollowed Kate Andrews' vision f LJC gradually developing a cgree-granting arm that was till a part of the Dr. Jeckel said.

Andrews was one of the founders of LJC. and its b o a r d chairman for many years.) Late in 19C7 through the first months of 1968, Dr. Deckel said, the U of L site controversy began where to establish the university's own campus. "The university believed it was necessary to be by itself and to have its own place in the sun and also that the college needed its own place, so that both could develop with- out interfering w i t h one another." From the many sites sug- gested, all of the university's consultants recommended it was most reasonable to move to a site across the Oldman River: "It was convenient for us in many ways, it offered us many unique opportunities for our development and it also pro- vided an extremely valuable opportunity for the city to final- ly cross its river and start to develop new land on the other Dr. Beekel said. "We designed our curriculum and philosophy to provide a liberal arts and science educa- tion for our students, by which we mean a dedication on the part of the faculty and an en- thusiasm on the part of the stu- dents toward a liberal attitude, and to liberate Dr. Beekel said. We want to foster an atmo- sphere of intellectual freedom and there is a very clear concent of what is meant by this freedom, and it does not mean licence. Some structure is needed to accommodate students plan- ning to leave the U of L for other, more traditional cam- puses with graduate schools, in; added. In tlie new buildings the U of L will move to in 1971, the main fourth-floor concourse, which is the entrance level from the coulees, will feature many open lounge seminar areas. "It is incredible how restrict- ing four walls can be when yol try to put into them the things you want to do as a student, a teacher or an Dr. Beekel said. The unique concourse system will hopefully provide an im- mense area (the building is 900 feet long) for interaction of all kinds, always open to students and faculty for immediate use. Discussions held in thesa open seminar rooms will filter out into the concourse, encour- aging passers-by to listen in. People in the lounge-seminar rooms will sit on cushions and carpets in multi-level tiers sim- ilar to stairs.
