"Too often Grade 1 children can't give forth of themselves it takes a year for them to learn to re- late to their teacher well enough to talk." "We'll encourage them to talk about their ideas and de- velop confidence in themselves so they can talk with the teach- er and answer questions in class as soon as they start Grade Mrs. Stead said. In developing their program they've combined ideas from kindergartens in Ottawa, Burn- aby, B.C., Saskatoon and Cal- gary, adding their own ideas to complete the system. They plan to give each child three half-days a week, for the Lethbridge standard fee of a month. Times are 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. or 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Both will teach at the same time, offering a team teaching situation so that substantial in- dividualized instruction can be given the students.

SCARRED COULEE FACE TELLS OF REPEATED MOTORCYCLE CLIMBING Motorcycle Trail Riding., Climbing May Have Special Area In Coulees The problem of coulee land in Lethbridge being scarred by motorbike enthusiasts may be solved by a proposal being de- veloped as part of a survey of recreatioinal use of the river- bottom area. Neil Andrew, the consultant hired by the parks and recrea- tion department to conduct the survey, says an area to be set aside for trail riding and hill climbing has been selected. No definite commitment on the 80-acre parcel of land ad- jacent to the city has been made, but the city may be pre- pared, he said, to consider ac- quiring or leasing the land if this is the only way the project can be handled. The survey includes plans for private developments, but this would likely have to be handled by the city, he said. Once the land was available it could be leased to a motor- cycle club or a firm that could set up a commercial operation, he said. The answer to the problem of use of the coulees for hill climb- ing, he said, is "to find a des- ignated area under full man- agement for such activities and then prohibit the indiscrimin- ate use of the hills."

By limiting the motorbikes to one part of the total area and rotating their location on a yearly basis, both activities could co-exist on the same par- cel of land. Damage Damage amounted to when a car driven by William Charles Hanson of 917 7th Ave. S. was in collision with a park- ed car owned by Gladis Hamer of 323 7th Ave S. The accident happened about Monday morning on 4lh St. and 6th Ave. S. There were no injuries. Darrell Ferguson, in charge of public relations for the Leth- bridge Motorcycle Club, says the group has been working with Mr. Andrew on plans for better control of motorbike ac- tivities. He said the club, which leases a site -just west of Hardieville from Mannix Co. Ltd., has had trouble in the past with youngsters in the 14 to 18 age group using their property. Some abuses have taken place, he said, which are very diffi- cult to control. Although 14-year-olds can ob- tain a licence for a motorbike there is no club for them in the city at the present time. There are plans, he said, for haying bike owners in this age group admitted to the club this fall. Blood Donor Clinic Set Sept. 1-3 The September Red Ci'oss blood donor clinic will be held Sept. 1, 2, 3, not Sept. 2, 3, 4 as reported in the Aug. 22 edi- tion of The Herald. The clinic will take place in Southminster Hall with a quota of 900 pints. Hours of the clinic will be: Sept. 1, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.; Sept. 2, 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.; Sept. 3, 9.30 a.m. to 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. At each clinic, a number of regular donors are unable to be present due to moving or ill health. New donors are always required to take up the slack, said a clinic spokesman. Youth's Condition Satisfactory Gary Peter Thomkins-, 20, of Lethbridge is reported to be in sstisfactory condition in hospi- tal in Trail, B.C., with a broken jaw and broken pelvis. Thompkins was involved in a single-vehicle accident 18 miles west of Creston, B.C., Aug. 16 in which the driver of the car, 22-year-old David Allen Dowd of Lethbridge, was killed. He is expected to remain in hospital in Trail for about another week. to feel a change was needed." Mr. Sutherland, information officer at the University of Lethbridge, said the split was amicable. "I'm not tired of entertain- ing, but I was getting disinter- ested with the same old c.'ru't." He started out in 1964 with Don Runquist and Vaughn Palmer of Picture Butte in the New Folk Trio. The group, under Mr. Suther- land's leadership, gradually evolved into the current five- some in I960. He said he was not thinking seriously of going into full-time professional entertainment as solo. He indicated some frustra- tion that the Point of Interest "was so good, but wasn't going professional." The Point of Interest is: cur- rently the best-known folksing- ing group in the Lethbridge area. It appeared at the One Prairie Province in 'May, held several successful concerts at the Yates Memorial Centre, did a stint last summer in Calgary and filled engagements in the southern Alberta banquet-caba- ret-concert circuit. The remaining members are Don Kunquist, on guitar; Tom Hudson, vocals; Sheila Pisko, vocals; and Grant Pisko, elec- tric bass. Mrs. Pisko said the group would probably continue as a foursome, with the same name. A fifth member, a drummer, might be added. The group has two concerts booked for September and Mrs. Pisko said members would meet this week to decide on future plans. Appearances this fall may be cut to a minimum, however, because of Mrs. Pisko's com- mitments to the Lethbridge Musical Theatre's production of My Fair Lady. She has been cast in the main role of Eliza Dolittle in the musical comedy, to run Nov. 23 to Dec. 5. {LcJl lo Right) Brewers S, C. O'Brien and R.

It develops skill, judgment and taste. Few, indeed, are those who qualify. Yet, we demand that diploma of our Calgary brewmaslcr and his assistants, and three of our men have earned it. They love beer. They insist on the purest water, the mellowest malts, the choicest on brews whose quality and flavour never vary. They refuse to compromise. If you too refuse to compromise, Calgary Beer is for you. Brewed by beer lovers for beer lovers. 1; CALGARY BREWING AND MALTING COMPANY LIMITED.
