Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 24, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta THE UTHBRIDGE HERALD August 1973 BILL GROENEN photos Rob-O an d friend Tammy shows her appreciation for a good show Aerial animals delight children attending Gyro circus The Canadian International Circus performed hvice Thursday in front of the Leth- bridge exhibition grandstand as a children's show the afternoon performance had its ups and Throughout the perform- ance the youngsters had to be warned by the ring an- nouncer to keep back from the infield where the three- ring circus performed in the Gyro club-sponsored show. If their eagerness an indi- they went home satis- fied. The circus opened with a tribute to the fantasy world of children as story book characters Sandy the Sylvester the squirrel. Robert the robin and the King and Queen of Keverland paraded in centre ring. A highlight of the show was the acrobatic performance of the Hoody Ashton family. The man and woman lay on their backs and propelled the chil- dren with precision and per- fect timing in a succession of fast flips using only their feet. Performer Diane Hanne- ford's aerial act culminated with her from the bar only by a then swinging aloft The first half of Ihe show- ended with a display of bal- ancing climaxed by Ken Wil- lard supporting the weight of his entire body on his little finger. The acrobatic the Seven offered a dis- play on teeter boards that swung to a skillful finale i n which one of the group was catapulted in a triple somer- sault and caught in a chair held up in the air by other members of the team. The aerial exploits of Betty and Joachim Ronita outshone other aerial performances. In one number the girl is swung in mid-air linked to her swinger only by a mouth- grip. In the the final act. the two work high in the on a vertical sky-wheel no safety net under- neath. The man walks on the wheel on one end of toe ma- chine while the girl moves the wheel from her end. Two other acts featuring baby elephants doing and a human in a gorilla cos- tume had the children squeal- ing.

U of L disappointed by native st udies delay By JIM GRANT Herald Staff Writer The provincial government is suspected of playing po- litical favoritism in its han- dling of post-secondary edu- cation programs. Native research people ex- pressed the suspicion and this week in the department of advanced e d u cation's deci- sion to delay evaluation and approval of the Native Am- erican Studies program sub- mitted by the University of Lsthbridge for government approval. light of the fact that they have given approval to a law faculty program at the University of Calgary it makes us wonder if A m e r i can Studies received fair says the proposed program's research co-ordinator. Leroy Little a native of the Blood was referring to a letter from the department of advanced edu- cation informing the U of L that the department would not be evaluating or approv- ing any new programs until it h a s established new poli- cies and procedures for pro- gram development. Why did the government accept the U of C program this month if it intended to establish new policies for program he asked. Peter executive as- sistant to Advanced Educa- tion Minister Jim doesn't agree that favoritism played a part in the decision. He claims the U of L pro- posal is more advanced in government planning than the law faculty proposal at the U of C. The government is com- mitted to looking at ths proposal for decision on approval for introduction in the next six to eight months and fine school for law at the IJ of C is certainly not that far he said in a telephone interview Thursday from Edmonton. He claims the government only committed itself to es- tablishing a law faculty at a future date and did not ep- prove it for any specific in- troduction date. Dr. 0. G. U of L academic says the university was very dis- appointed that the govern- ment decided not to evaluate the program at this time. He says early approval of the program was desirable for proper planning. If the program is approved at a later date this year or the first part of next the university will have to make do with what time it has to prepare the program for fall of 1974. suggested Dr. Holmes. Mr. Jenner said the govern- ment hopes to have the pro- gram implemented for opera- tion a year from now. are- aware of ths need to have an early decision for program planning and they of will know of our de- cision well in advance of next G o vernment awareness of the Native American Studies program as proposed for the U of L dates back more than a year. The program was originally presented to the U of L by native research people in conjunction with tha Indian community. The university approved the Native American Studies as a degree program under the faculty of arts and sci- ence. It was designed for the ad- vancement of Indian educa- tion and the development of an appreciation of the Indian people and their culture. Mr. Little Bear says ths government has been stress- ing grassroots involvement in education programming since the Worth Report on .educa- tion planning was released last year. But the first time it got a chance to support programming that originated at a grassroots it fails to act. studies is an ex- pression of the native people that needs to be he concludes. Student technologists may face salary cuts By AL SCARTH Herald Staff Writer The Alberta Hospital Asso- ciation may recommend that its members reduce or cut Playwrights win awards One Lethbridge resident and another from Pincher Creek are among winners in the 6th annual television and playwriting competition sponsored by the Alberta de- partment of youth and recreation. Brian Tyson took second place and won in the one- act play competition for his play Companion Piece. Mr. is an English teacher at the University of Leth- bridge. Doug Smith of Pincher Creek was a third place win- ner -with his three-act play No Choice for Children out entirely salaries for a wide range of student technol- ogists. Students earn in the range of a month during their final year of training Which is spent in a hospital. They carry out many of the same duties as qualified staff but must be instructed and super- vised. Students of medical record and laboratory tech- nologies as well as those in physiotherapy fields would be among those affected.

In local academic programs RESIDENTS UNINVOLVED Space walk circus style roaaed performer looking for aerial By JIM GRANT Herald Staff Writer People in Lethbridge spend much of their leisure time watching t e 1 e v ision and aren't very involved in com- munity physical and academ- ic a recreation study released Thursday re- veals. The Lethbridge Association of Life long Education plan- ned the study to find out how city adults are spending their spare time and to obtain citi- zen reaction to existing adult education programs current- ly offered in the city. A city resident spends an average of about 18 hours a week viewing tele v i s Sharon a university discovered when she conducted in the home in- terviews with 249 people from all regions of the city. The average number of viewing hours per person in the city appears to be on par with the national average. According to ada's recent more than 50 per cent of the Cana- dian population watches eight to 30 hours of television weekly. Tha local study found that their lack of involvement in adult education programs was tha in the major- ity of tin eues. of a lack of knowledge of the various pro- grams available. Only 22.5 per cent of thoae interviewed were engaged in some type of physical or aca- demic program currently of- fered by the Lethbridge Com- munity University of Allied Arts Council and Com- munity Services all mem- ber of the Lethbridge Asso- ciation of Life long Educa- tion. Some of the adult education program members obviously are failing to inform people about their programs. Of the people contacted 86.4 per cent weren't aware of YWCA 75.1 per cent were ignorant of Allied Arts 69.9 didn't know what the U of L 68.7 were ignorant of Community 44.0 weren't aware of YMCA pro- grams and 43.9 per cent weren't aware of LCC courses. After Miss Giduk briefed tha interviewees on the pro- grams offered by each of the the greatest per- centage of them indicated a preference for the courses offered by LCC. About 32 per cent prefered LCC 20 per cent favored the U of 18 per cent the Community Ser- 18 per cent the 1.8 per cent tht Allied Arti and 3.6 per cent of the YMCA. The study also questioned about the types of programs they would like to see some of ths members offer. Most of those interviewed felt the YWCA and YWCA programming should be physi- cally oriented with both co- ed programs and courses for males and females. It was also indicated that there should be more physi- cal programs for the handi- capped at the YMCA and that arts and crafts should be ex- cluded from YMCA and YWCA programming. Of the respondents who knew something about YMCA 87.5 per cent felt the YMCA offered some type of program for most but 16.9 per cent also felt that it was who partici- pated in YMCA programs. About 40 per cent of those Interviewed claimed t YMCA programs and mem- berships were loo expensive and 34 per cent didn't know anything about YMCA costs. Most people per didn't know anything about YWCA costs and only .4 per cent thought they were too expensive. H also Chat the U of L needs to do a better job of informing people about and LOG bat a better job of making people aware of its programming. About 62 per cent of the people weren't aware of the U of L non credit courses while about 79 per cent were aware of all the courses of- fered by LCC. A surprising number of re- spondents didn't enjoy swim- ming per and 78 per cent of those who enjoy- ed swimming preferred pub- lic swimming to swimming classes. The association was also concerned with the type ol programs that could cffer- ed to senior but the study indicated that most se- nior citizens didn't want new programs because there was plenty for them to do now. Miss Giduk will present the study to the Leth- bridge Association of Life- long Education Sept. then it will be turned over to U of L students for a computer programming analysis. The computer analysis will provide a more in depth breakdown of how city resi- dents spend their recreation time. It will reveal the number of hours people spend on differ- ent '.lobbies and recreation information about recreation in various regions and how the various incomt jpnd Icifun ;
