Black-listed people may often comprise those elements of so- ciety who are classed as "trou- ble makers." These people, mostly Indians, are forced to find whatever protection is ed cars, abandoned buildings and garbage dumps. The problem is not as fre- quent among long-hairs or whites, who often find accom- modation in some Lethbridgc homes. However, it was suggested, destitute Indians are not af- forded the same hospitality be- cause of their skin color. Many hotel owners will not accommodate them although they may have vacant rooms. A Herald reporter recently witnessed a case where dis- crimination was evident at a local hotel. Some oui -of-town Indians asked for rooms hut were told the hotel was full and only a few minutes later a white in- dividual asked for and received a room. Federal officials who deal with Indians had said earlier Back recreation NATAL (HNS) The pledge committee for the proposed recreation complex here has planned its drive for the week commencing Dec.

The youths, who did not say what course of action they are contemplating, felt it was un- fair to discriminate against people just because alcohol may be on their breaths. They said quite a number of men, women and occasionally children are forced to sleep under freezing conditions. A place for these people must be found, they said.

College expects expansion of courses in new program By RON CALDWELL Staff Writer A sweeping expansion of courses at the Lethbridge Com- munity College may Ire the di- rect result of the provincial government's dol- lar job training program an- nounced this week. Jin- MacNcil, director of compelling and student ser- vices, said "We are looking at possibly 31 new courses as a re- sult of the program." "So far, we have had nearly 30 inquiries from interested ci- tizens about how to get into the program and as soon as it be- comes more widely known, I expected that number to soar." Dr. C. D. Stewart, president of LCC, told a press conference Wednesday that there is no li- mit on the number of students who will be able to take ad- vantage of the program. "They (tile government) feel that the 4.000 province-wide figure is rather optimistic. Our instructions are that if we come up with even more than expect we wouldn't be turn- ed down and we are looking at around 400 new students." Mr. MacNeil described the 400 figure as "the minimum."

"For sure the ivcrlhern part of the province is going to know we are taking advantage of this thing and 1 .believe this will pave the wrr for ongoing programs next he said.

Mr. Robin said th? college wil< be "as innovative as we can" in providing new pro- grams. He said basically all that is needed to start a new pro- gram is enough interest in the community.
