Arctic air to spend weekend in south Arctic weather will likely re- main over Lethbridge until at least Monday, according to the weatherman but by Tues- day high temperatures could be in the 30s. An arctic high pressure sys- tem is centred over the Yukon- Northwest Territories border today, moving slowly south- e a s t. The system extends throughout Western Canada and the northwestern United States. The centre of the system will move slowly over south- ern Alberta, keeping tempera- tures below freezing. Thursday's high in Leth-labout 10 above; the overnight -tn 1C Halnur- flnH WatllT- bridge was 26 above, and the low last night was 13 below. A full inch of fluffy snow fell overnight, and light snow and ice crystals continue to collect sporadically over the weekend. Today's high was forecast at low 10 to 15 below; and Satur- day and Sunday the highs should be five to 10 above zero with mainly sunny skies.

New York professor's opinion Canadians' quest for identity comes from feeling 'invisible' By JOAN BOWMAN Herald Staff Writer The quest by Canadians- for 'identity" stems from a basic national feeling of being "invis- says Dr. Robert Kroetsch, 1969 winner of the Governor-General's Award for fiction. Dr. Kroetsch, Alberta-born professor of English at the State University of New York in Binghamton, said in Leth- bridge recently that Canadians view themselves as "invisible people." He said Americans ask them- selves "who are we? Are we really violent and destrutive? Canadians, on the other hand, ask the more basic question, "Do we Dr. Kroetsch, 43, is the auth- or of four books: a travelogue, plus But We Are Exiles The Words of My Roaring (1966) and the Studhorse Man The last book was the winner of the Governor-Gen- eral's award, a yearly tribute somewhat akin to the American Pulitizer Prize. COMPLETE CARPET AND LINOLEUM INSTALLATION HAMILTON'S FLOOR COVERING LTD. 909 3rd Ave. S. Ph. 327-5454 A native of Heisler, he is a graduate of the University of Alberta, studied history of En- glish prose with author Hugh McLennan and took his Ph.D. at the University of Iowa in 1961. He said he would have taken a job in Canada after gradua- tion but no Canadians appear- ed interested, whereas Ameri- cans were clamoring for his services. Aside from a couple of years spent back in Canada and in England, he has remained with the New York university since 1961. Dr. Kroetsch contended Ca- nadians and Americans, despite their outward similarities, do have differences in perception. Manuscripts of The Studhorse Man, which deals with a mental patient at Ponoka and his fan- tasies about the disappearing frontier were sent to both American and Canadian edi- tors. A Canadian editor reckoned the author had "stripped away the myth and told the reality." The American said Dr. Kroetsch had given a "great mytholog- ical account." "What looks real to a Cana- dian'looks unreal to an Ameri- Dr. Kroetsch said. Canadian writers, and the public, are intrigued by "invis- ibility." Writers have their characters die drowning, as if bracing silence." by fire "wilfully and Of lasting public interest is painter Ton Thomson, who in 1917 drowned in Ontario's Al- gonquin Park. Mystery sur- rounds not only his death whether he died by fair or foul means but the actual resting place of his body. Rumors abound that his casket does not contain Thomson's body. Dr. Kroetsch suggested the cyclical anti-Americanism Canada may be a reverse ef- fort to come to grips with this "invisibility." For Englsih-speaking Cana- dians the problem of identity is philosophical; for French- speaking Candians, it is more literal, more based on tangible issues. "People say Canadians have no 'ghosts' from their history but living Canadians are their own ghosts." Despite the negativism of this Dr. Kroetsch said he found the "terror as- with it, very exciting." The author, who started writ- ing 20 years ago and received the usual "bundle of rejection said he would return eventually to Canada "where my material is. But for now, living in the U.S. "gives me perspective." TONIGHT and SATURDAY A Delightful Experience in Gourmet Dining Dinner Dancing To the Music of MARV QUALLY'S SUNSET TRIO NO COVER CHARGE! SUNDAY is FAMILY DAY ERICKSEN'S "SPECIAL CHILDREN'S MENU" Dr. Kroetsch said one of the advantages of being a Cana- dian writer is that nearly all works are "fresh material. American writers feel as though they are repeating some one else." standing committee has been appointed to hear proposals concerning graduate studies programs, but university offi- cials say it will be at least a year before any such proposals are made. The committee was appointed by the General Faculties Coun- cil as the internal U-of L anal- ysis body. In order for gradu- ate studies to start at the uni- versity a formal application would have to be made to the provincial appraisals commit- tee which includes provincial university officials and other officers. There has always been some ambiguity about the legislation and policies under which the U of L was chartered, but a niunber of Edmonton officials have suggested the university was not intended to have graduate studies or expand at all from its current two facul- ties. U of L faculty and adminis- trat i o n personnel generally deny this, and many believe the only way the university will gam academic ground is for expansion into masters degrees and doctorates, as well as in other program offerings. "The GFC's enabling legisla- tion means in effect that we're committed to the idea of graduate studies said Dr. Roger Meintzer, U of L co- ordinator of academic plan- ning. He said the GFC legislation contained a number of restric- tive guidelines which will dis- courage any premature moves by U of L departments or faculties. The guidelines include ade- quacy of the library in the graduate studies area propos- ed, adequacy of the staff num- bers, training and scholarship in the area and the assurance of sufficient financial potential that undergraduate programs will not suffer. "These strings are designed to protect us so that when we do go before the provincial ap- praisals committee see we have the best possible pro- gram in the world so there's no way they can turn us Dr. Meintzer said. He said he expected that the increase evening in after- substantial noon and would be required this fall due tc scheduling difficulties with a split campus a possible start for increased continuing educa- tion offerings.

"We do see a greater growth in all the fine arts programs than in out other areas though, and I think this is an encourag- ing sign for our he said. Legislation also calls for ap- pointment by July this year of a drama professor, but Dr. Meintzer said he doubted it will now come this year because of financial restrictions the ap- Agriculture and a humanitiei faculty also continue to be dis- cussed but Dr. Meintzer said he doubted the province could afford them for a few years at least. Word on home expected in month Don Le Baron, administrator of the Golden Acres and Green Acres Lodges, said Friday word is expected within a month from the provincial gov- ernment on whether a third se- nior citizens' home will be built in Lethbridge.

PHONE 328-7756 PHONE 328-7756 for RESERVATIONS Mail service to resume at Standoff By RIC SWIHART Herald Staff Writer STANDOFF Twice-weekly postal service for about half the Blood Indian Reserve will resume in Standoff next week with the installation of a mail compartment in the new snack bar. The reserve Indians once had mail service but due to a loss of facility provided in a former store now closed they have had to pick up mail in recent years in Cardston or Fort Macleod. Marion Heavy Shields, man- ager of the Standoff Snack Bar, will be in charge of the new general delivery postal ser- vice. She trained for two weeks in the Fort Macleod post office with Curtis Butler, postmaster in charge of the area. The new office will provide money orders, stamps and par- cel service, as well as first and second class mail. Mrs. Heavy Shields will sort the mail and do the postal bookkeeping. The general delivery service will operate Tuesdays and Fri- days. Mrs. Heavy Shields said if warranted, the service can be expanded to a daily service. She said if it does become daily, the post office would likely be moved to the pro- posed new administration building near Kainai Industries Ltd. faculty of education would like- ly be the first U of L group to seek a graduate studies pro- gram, "but others will likely follow." "It's a step we haven't al- ways thought we'd take he said, "but we think it's needed now." The GFC standing committee includes Dr. Dorothy Lampard, Dr. Russell Lesfciw, Charles Crane, Dr. L. P. Courmier. Dr. Emile Wagenaar and Dr. F. Q. Quo. Dr. Meintzer said other U of L departments and needs are also being reviewed.

Mr. Le Baron said he had discussed the local situation with Mr. Speaker and had been assured that the government's position was still that there was a need for another home in the city. While there Had been a "good discussion" with the cabinet committee, Mr. Le Baron said, definite commitment was made on the number or loca- tion of new homes. The delegation was told there are two new lodges and eigSit additions included in the pro- vincial budget for the coming year and it was hoped these would survive any budget cuts. Mr. Le Baron said things "look pretty good" for expan- sion of the program as a whole. He said the cabinet members had agreed that the program was an important one which would be continued. There was some discussion, he said, of the possibility oi part of a million federal grant to the province to stimu- late construction being used for the homes program, although no decision has been made yei on this matter. 150 films in festival The Lethbridge Community Film Festival, featuring about 150 films for family viewing, starts at 2 p.m. Saturday at the Ystes Memorial Centre.
