Tins diversity must be open to students in their first year of university, he said, and in addition it should be possible if a student desires, to switch to the more-traditional approach with little loss of education wilh credit for the independent courses. The university should pre- sent a combination situation which offers both the standard restricted course patterns, and also a newer approach allow- ing the students to study what- ever they want in consultation Commission to work with The parks and recreation commission has approved in principle to work with the YWCA regarding women's and girls' recreation in Lethbridge and requested the parks and recreation department to pre- pare general policy guidelines. The program is suggested as one-year project to be con- tinued and altered as seen fit if the initial experiment should prove satisfactory. The proposal by the YWCA is to cost an estimated and will require a city subsidy of or per registrant. There would be approximately 2.100 registrants.

"But this is not being done anywhere that I know certainly not at the University of Lethbridge, for all our talk about that kind of thing." He suggested a university of :his type would offer an inde- pendent study program avail- able for students regarded by a faculty-student committee as >eing equal to the responsibil- ity of organizing, with the help of faculty, their own course of studies. The existing Colloqui- um Study program at the U of L would be an example on smaller scale.

This would be a full-time f o u r-semester program, Dr. Smith said, guaranteed to sat- isfy all general university pro- gram requirements. The university could at the same time offer a conventional schedule of courses, which at present requires that students take forty course units in both general and specialized areas, to meet requirements for a degree. This system, he said, would go a long ways toward solving the current situation in which students resist being "locked in" to an established role in society, so either remain in university or completely drop out of society. It would allow students to study whatever they believed would make them more fully under stand themselves. It would offer all kinds of peo- ple the opportunity to go to university, including those with fixed goals in mind for whom the traditional univer- sity is ample, or for those with- bridge as Teresa Wong. Teresa, a Grade 12 studc at the Lethbridge Collegiate I stitute moved from Hong Kor about 114 years ago, parents, two brothers and sisters. She was actually born what she says Hong Kong res dents call "Old China" th Chinese mainland. She move to Hong Kong when she wa about one year old, and st has relatives in old China. Hong Kong is a Britis Crown Colony still, occupyin 398 square miles includir some 3G5 square miles of th mainland, called the New Te ritories, leased to Hong Kon by China for 99 years lease which expires in 1997. Most of the colony's four mi bVm people live in about 1 square miles of residentia out feed goals who still want to continue their educations. CAMM'S 403 5lh St. S.

Hong Kong is actually an is land, but its New Territorie are on the mainland, surrounc ed by Chinese Kwangtung Prov ince. Teresa said she finds fa more freedom at LCI than she had in school in Hong Kong. "You can take the courses you want and do most of the things you want, and you can dress however you she said. Her hair is past shoulder length now, hut she said in Hong Kong when it wasn't even half as long the school she at tended cut it off at about hei ears because they thought i: was too long. "We also had to wear uni- forms they were too long and in the hot weather they were she said. Teresa likes clothes and that's where much of her spending money is going now. "I tried to avoid" that uni- form as often as'I could, so I could wear other she said. Not all Hong Kong schools are as restrictive, she said, but they are still not as flexible as Lethbridge schools are. STARTING AGE Students there start now at age five, but when Teresa started school there was no of- ficial starling date at all students could start at. what- ever age their parents took them to school. The elementary-level school has six grades; and the second- ary schools work on the "form" system, with three forms tak- ing five years. Studies include history, mathematics, English, geography, Chinese history and I literature, and composition. I And comprehensive exams covering everything studied through the five high school years must he passed before a student graduates. Most schools also have monthly tuition fees, and books get extremely expensive. The main language is Can- tonese, one of the most com mon Chinese dialects, but Eng- lish is also popular and people usually speak another Chinese language as well. Teresa said she started learn- ing English in Grade 3, little by little. Because in English ciass no other language is al- lowed, the teacher in Grade 4 told everyone to choose an English name. Teresa couldn't think of one, so her teacher called her "Teresa" and she las kept the name ever since all situations where English us spoken. In high school, she took mos of her classes in English. She says she likes tin Prairies because they have "si nuch but she's gettin] 'a little frozen" since Hon; Kong has no real winter. When she finishes lu'gh schop next year, Teresa is uncertain about what she will do. She ays she likes working icople, and one possibility she s considering is working in a major airline terminal ranslator. She is also considering uni ersily. She might like to return to Hong Kong for a visit, but pre ers to live in Canada. The ear she felt of Old China, the rowded living conditions and he difficult economic stand- rds arc among the factors she as considered. She said a good salary there 5 about Hong Kong dol- ars a month the equivalent f about Canadian. A bot- e of pop costs 30 Hong Kong ents; a good dress or suit jout Hong Kong. Worth Commission associate is fired By JIM WILSON Herald Education Writer Allan Stein, associate direc- tor of the post-secondary edu- Commission on Educational Planning, told The Herald this morning he had been fired from his position by Dr. Walter Worth, head of the commission. Calling from Edmonton, he said there is "some chance" several resignations will result from his dismissal. Univeristy o f Lethbridge President Dr. Sam Smith is di- of the post-secondary education task force. Mr. Stein, in a telephone in- erview, said he was fired "for very vague which he was lead by Dr. Worth to he- ieve included "lack of judg- ment and loyalty to the com- mission." He said he did uot believe it vas the quality of his1 work j Dr. Wor'.h was dissatisfied vith, since lie has already done substantial amount of the commission's research. Mr. Stein has long said he nad been appointed to the com- mission as its "token student- adical-hippie." and suggested hat this might be the reason le has now been dismissed. "Tokenism only really works the token works according (o he rules of the larger e said. "My commitment is to ducation, not just to tha com- nission." At the commission's Con- fess on the Future last week- nd, Mr. Stein was one of bout 70 delegates who held a >rotest meeting one evening, expressing concern that the congress was doing nothing to further education for the peo- ple in attendance because it did not give them any oppor- 'No confidence' says Worth Dr. Worth, contacted by The Herald said Mr. Stein's dis- missal "arose from a growing lack of confidence in his abil- ity to assist me in properly fulfilling the purposes of this commission." He said tin's would include both loyalty and working abili- ties Mr. Stein offered the com- mission. "I have a job to do and have to have people on the commis- sion board in whom I can trust."

Stubbs The recent deaths of well- known, show business person- alities, where a combination of drugs and alcohol has prov- ed to have been the cause, have created a prob- 'em which no solution has yet been found. You I m a y remember J this combination was the attribut- 4 tf-std cause of the i death of Dorothy Kilgallen? Film-star Allen Ladd and singer Dorothy Dandridge were also victims of this com- bination of drugs and alcohol. At this time we do not know why drugs which can usually be of help, can, in combination with liquor, cause death. There has, however, now been enough experience to know that a per- son under medication can pos- sibly be risking death when she drinks liquor at the same time. Why take this chance? A word to the wise Why be like the man who jumped on liis horse and rode off in all directions? Just re- member that Stubbs Pharmacy is always your best place to "Say Hello to a Good at 1506 9lh Avo.
