Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 2, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday February 2, 1973 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - J.7 Extension project Response lo Hie Family Y'i; new golf instruction has been so good, plana are being made to add another class to the three already in progress. Twenty-year-old Sherryl De Coste has recently joined the Y staff as program secretary in charge of organizing and producing programs. Born and raised in Lethbridge, Miss De Coste attended Catholic Central High School and is a recreation graduate of the Lethbridge Community College.  SHEKRYL UK COSTE . . . program secretary Ken Spence. general secretary of the Lethbridge Family YMCA, has announced that the Y Extension Project got under way this week, in conjunction with the YWCA. ''lor sometime now there's been an implied need for Y programs outside of the building" to provide services in the city and surrounding districts, he said. "We don't have the funds or the manpower," Mr. Spence explained ,"but the PEP (priority employment program) has an employment section, and thi-ough the Department of Youth, Culture and Recreation we were approached to propose a project to help with the manpower problem. "Suddenly we saw some_extra bodies and extra money,""Hie' grinned. The project, which is half rural and hall urban, was approved, giving four people employment for 5'/2 months. "It's a make-work program.' Mr. Spence said. "The requirement was that the people had to be unemployed. "We were really lucky to find four young people with a background in physical education and recreation and sociology. The loin- young people. Ursula Witzke, Monica Lemieszewski, George Strang and Byron Tem-plefon. will operate in the city and in Hardieville, Coalhurst and Monarch. Working with recreation directors in the rural areas, "they've been able to design programs . . . using available facilities." These programs, "dealing mainly with women and youth," he said, will cover "everything mainly with women wnd youth," from a film society to kaffeek-latches to a kids' drop-in centre." Urban programs will probably include "a north side and south side school gym project, likely in elementary gymnastics." The Y is presently negotiating for the use of faci-, lities at Lakeview and Senator j Buchanan schools. Mr. Strang and Mr. Temple-ton are also working on another project under the direction of school authorities. They are supplying guidance for a boy-help-boy program, whereby a group of active youth works with and provides leadership to , youngsters with motor co-or-! dinating problems on a one-to-one basis. Before the conclusion of the PEP project in May, said Mr. Spence, "one of our hopes is to find some indigineous leaders in the communities." As for the youth leaders, "we want, them to work themselves out of a job, and not just leave the communities high and dry." Voluntary leaders taking over the projects, he pointed out, ! w o u 1 d receive training and i guidance from the Family Y, | the YWCA and from the rec-rreation leaders in the rural 1 communities. Cash rewards for teachers do not increase motivation WASHINGTON (AP) - Cash rewards for teachers won't improve a child's reading and arithmetic, an evaluation of a $770,000 federal experiment shows. But there appears to be some hope of improvement if the child's parents also are eligible for incentives based on his progress. The controversial experiment was conducted last, school year in Cincinnati; Jacksonville. Fla.; San Antonio, Tex., and Oakland. ; One grade school was chosen j in each district, each with 500 i to 700 predominantly poor and ! black pupils with low grades, j Teachers were offered bo- , nuses of up to $1,200 if their classes improved significantly in reading and mathematics. In addition, parents of pupils in the San Antonio and Oakland test schools could earn up to $100 if the classes as a whole imnroved. In reading, there was an "educationally - significant increase" in achievement only in Oakland, an apparent decrease in Cincinnati and negligible changes in the other two schools, the evaluation said. In mathematics, learning increased as Oakland and San Antonio, it said. Planar Corp., which.analyzed the results, recommended to the U.S. office of education that M calendar of teacher-only incentives "not be further researched or advocated." But the parent-teacher idea should be explored further over a three-year period. Even before it. began, the experiment was criticized by some teachers, school board members, administrators and parents. The teachers said they already were doing their best and that cash rewards probably would not increase I heir motivation. But the sharpest criticism was heaped on the concept of paying parents to be parents. Planar said that its evaluation tends to "vindicate the several teachers whose reaction to the notion of an incentives project was. in effect, that tlie offer of incentives alone, without any substantive prescriptions, would not cause them to do anything differently because they had been working as hard and as effectively as they were able." ~3i'i cml ovtt of town local Lai L.

Men's new overall-tuxedoes have silver cuffs* stitching By ODETTE MENGIN ROME (AP) - The man who wears them at a party may be taken for the gardener, but dungarees are the latest substitute for tuxedoes. Rome designer Siviglia introduced the black, silver stitched overalls in his would-be casual men's collection for spring-summer 1973 at the onen-ing of the Rome fashion showings. On the whole, the fashion parade didn't make much excitement. OnSy three designers of men's clothes presented their latest creations. Siviglia's collection was original, even if he appeared to have his hours mixed up. While he insisted that dungarees were lor evening wear, his morning suits often resembled a bed jacket, loosely tied with a belt, over pajamas. Legion auxiliary The overall-tuxedo had hard silver cuffs and collar and the designer sewed the seams with silver thread in big jean-type stitches. Other outfits included loose cardigans with shawl collars, or with a black and red muffler to sling round the neck, and | light, plastic windbreakers. Bazzarini's models were intended for the muscular type of man. with broad shoulders and narrow hips. But his strong color contrast.-an orange shirt with a wine-red jacket or yellow with pale turquoise - might make a heman hesitate to wear them. ppar, in q5 McKillop UCW units will meet as follows: Filmer unit: Mrs. foot, 1313 30th St. S day at 8 p.m.: Hedenstrom unit: Baraniuk, 1507 15th Ave. S., Tuesday at 2 p.m.: Liska unit: Mrs. R.
