Mr. Lee recommended the Lethbridge Friendship Centre try to make funds avail able through the Indian Association of Alberta and "in the mean- time, the attorney general's of- fice will be looking closely at the project and will come up with a decision on its stand the issue. "There is a good chance probation officer court worke position will be created by th provincial government in orde to justify the use of publi funds' He said a court worker h no status in a court but a pn bation officer does and th: stipulation is needed befor money can be spent from th attorney general's office fo such a project He said plans for such a pro ject have been on the books fo some time and this year inone was set aside for eight add tional native probation officer court workers following the sue cess of the original groun th year before "This money tied up because govcrnmcn iunds appropriated for one de jartment can't be transferrec to another department" Mr. Lee said the court work er in Lethbridge has the pos iion of "amicus [riend of the court, and then ore does not have official sta lus with the court. He said the duties performe >y Mr. Lapatac include: mak ng the person, whether Indian or Metis, aware of the charge is facing; to obtain lega aid; to notify relatives regard ing fines; to interview person >efore he attends court; and t speak on behalf of the person after the guilt or innocence ha >een established, explaining any mitigating circumstances.

Sixty per cent of the commis- sion's budget comes from the provincial government, the rest from the municipalities. The commission also voted to recommend to the provincial planning board that the policy on the taking of public reserve land at the time of subdivision remain unchanged. The board had requested the commission's recommendation following a suggestion that the 10 per cent reserve be taken each time a parcel of land is subdivided. The present policy is flexible, and there may be deferrals and payment in lieu of tlie actual land. E x e c u tive Director Erwln Addcrley pointed out that if the suggested policy were adopted it would be possible for 50'per cent of a parcel to be taken as reserve for public use through I'epeated subdivision. LCI Not Ready For School Start Lethbridge Collegiate Insti- tute students in all grades will get an extended summer holi- day this year: they won't have to go back to classes until Sept. The delayed return time (all other city schools start Aug. 25) was necessitated by a later- than-expected finish to the 52 million LCI addition. The build- ing contractor is now expected to have finished by Aug. 31, al- most two weeks later than scheduled. When the contractor leaves, school district caretaking and maintenance crews will move in to clean classrooms, corri- dors and other facilities, install desks and other necessary work. Because of the two-week loss in school time, LCI students will not complete their fall se- mester until about mid-Jan- uary (they will still break as usual at School days will be 30 minutes longer, as in most city schools. The spring semester for LCI students will start almost im- mediately after the extended "all session ends, and its school days will continue to be extend- ed by 30 minutes in order that they may still finish June 9 with the other Lethbridge schools. LCI students who are plan- ning to graduate at Christmas in order to enter another edu- cational institution in January (the University of Lethbridge and Lethbridge Community College offer semesterized courses) will be allowed to at- tend Winston Churchill High School if they wish, for the fall semester, in order that they finish in time. The public school district ad- ministration said it is also pos- sible that these students could instead attend Catholic Central High School if it is more con- venient for them. Causes of the construction completion delay include late delivery, of essential equipment and fixtures, particularly in the case of science laboratory and the school's intercom system. Dr. 0. P. Larson, superinten- dent of public schools, noted that there will under no cir- cumstances be any further de- lay in opening the school.
