Referendum Jan. 27 Publication of Meliorist challenged By JIM WILSON Herald Education Writer The University of Lethbridge student newspaper, The Meliorist, will face a student referendum Jan. 27 to determine whether or not it may continue publication. The paper will continue to publish until after the referendum, without any special restrictions on it. The move came following a lengtliy Students' Society Council meeting which discussed a 177-name petition circulated by SSC third and fourth-year representative Bob Rasmussen, COMPLETE CARPET AND LINOLEUM INSTALLATION HAMILTON'S FLOOR COVERING LTD. 909 3rd Ave. S. Ph. 327-5454 calling for the referendum plus immediate suspension of publication. The council opted to continue the paper, but hold the referendum. About 1,430 students will be eligible to vote on The Meliorist's .fate. Mr. Rasmussen has been a long-time critic of the paper, particularly since its publication of the FLQ manifesto earlier this fall. Allan Wilson, editor of the paper since former editor Barry Poffenroth resigned over the FLQ controversy, said he dislikes seeing its future open to a student vote because it is not in keeping with a free press. However, given the existing situation The Meliorist finds itself in, he said he is happy the problems will be finally resolved. If the paper wins the refer- Use Our Sneaky Gift Plan . .

Robin Dann, president of the SSC and constitutionally publisher of The Meliorist, said he too will be happy to see the p a p e r's position finally resolved. He said he does not helieve in any form of censorship, and to the limits of tlie law he believes it should be allowed to print everything its staff wants to print, whether or not it is popular material. He refused to speculate on whether or not The Meliorist would win support in the referendum, but promised all sides would be heard before the vote is taken. Mr. Dann, Mr. Wilson and Mr. Rasmussen will meet to formulate the precise wording for the referendum. Approval sought forYWCA program A proposal by the YWCA for an $11,000 recreation program for city women and girls is to be considered by the parks and recreation commission Thursday. The progi'am is suggested as a one-year project to be continued and altered as seen fit if the initial experiment should prove satisfactory. As the YWCA has minimal facilities, city facilities such as swimmmg pools, gymnasiums and schools would be used. Theie would be an estimated 2,100 registrants in the various program classes throughout the year. There is no estimate on how many individuals would actually be served by the proposed program, llie $11,000 program requires a city subsidy of $4,300 cr $2.05 per registrant. The YWCA would seek the subsidy plus the regular relief of taxes, which last year GREENS ^ For ^ HOME % DECORATIONS 4  CEDAR  HOLLY  JACK PINE ,^  MISTLETOE ^ ^  PINE CONES % ^ 07 ' ^ Shop fMarquis Hotel Bldg.^ Phone 327-1515 ^ amounted to $1,111, for a total city grant of about $5,500. Last year the city gave the YWCA $3,239 including the tax grant and other financial assistance. In explaining its proposed program the organization states: "We also believe that an arrangement such as this would preclude the necessity of our requesting assistance from the city in any other way in the futiu-e, except for the normal and regular relief of taxes which has been granted us in the past." The eiglit - point project includes: ladies swim, involving 420 registrants at a total cost of $2,454; ladies keep fit, involving 735 registrants costing $1,782; girls junior gj-m (ages 8-16) involving 135 registrants costing $681; girls teen clubs (ages 12-15) involving 72 registrants costing $737; girls Blue Triangles (ages 8-12) involving 315 registrants costing $2,496; ladies Yoga involving 240 registrants costing $1,444; ladies volleyball involving 64 registrant costing $597; and creative dance for 90 preschoolers and girls 6-8 years old costing $691.
