The seminar continues today and Friday.

There are currently about 50 young people - mostly students from three city high schools - in six companies in the Junior Achievement movement that has been in Lethbridge three years. Wilf Curtis of Calgary, executive director for Southern Alberta and Leo Price of Toronto, executive vice-president of the national organization were in the city for the monthly meetinp of the local group. With the sponsorship of business, the movement started in the United States in 1919 and spread to Canada in 1955 starting in Vancouver, Mr. Price said in an interview. There are 30 full-time staff, many more part-time and volunteer workers and thousands of young people involved in Junior Achievement across the country, he said. The national office was established in 1967, he said, after a Canadian Chamber of Commerce survey found that students who had taken Junior Achievement had a "tremendous" head start over other young people in a business career. The movement is doing well in Alberta and is growing --likely to expand from a current six centres to 10 in the next two years, said Mr. Price. The purpose of Junior Achiev-ment is to give young people practical business experience, develop self confidence and make friends, he said. The Lethbridge meeting centre and manufacturing shop is at 909 4th Ave. S. Young people meet for two or three hours once a week. the university and is open to the public. Former state secretary Judy LaMarsh will address the concluding session Friday at 8:15 p.m. Mr. Newkirk told the sparsely-attended session, that women have become stereo-typed as meek, passive, emotional and unintelligent. And in a male-dominated society, they have been allowed to accept without criticism only the positions of housewife, mother and.sex partner. "A good woman," he said, is considered by society to be an efficient woman - but machines are also efficient. "Men are classified as human beings, but women are classified as female," he said. Mr. .Newkirk also touched on what he called discrimination against native persons, black persons and persons from India and lower Asia who seek living accommoda t i o n, discrimination against those seeking employment, and discrimination between the educated and the un-educated.

The developer, Casey Wisker-ke, told The Herald approval of aoplications to the Department of Regional Economic Expansion and the Alberta Opportunity Company will determine if the proiect will go ahead. If the financing can be arranged, Mr. Wiskerske said, the plant could be in operation by the summer. The plant would be franchised as cart of a Western Canadian chain of stores selling soda pop wholesale. The name of the parent company, whicli is located in Winnipeg, has not been released. Mr. Wiskerske said projected production is $200,000 cases of sodn pop a year within five years. The plant would employ about eight persons. The estimated cost of the development is $150,000. A HP meeting next week The Association for Historical Productions will hold its first board of directors meeting at noon Wednesday at Sven Eriek-sen's Family Restaurant, AHP president George Brown says. The agenda includes the election of a vice-president and a treasurer, the appointment of a director for The Sight, The Sound and The Fury, a pageant to be staged during RCMP centennial celebrations, and the timing of the pageant. ''The purpose of the human rights commission is to rid the negative feelings that foster discrimination," he said. "Complaints received by the commission generally concern either disputes over accommodation or wages," he said. He said that often those most opposed to non-discriminatory housing practices based on race become the most ardent supporters after they find many of the fears stemming from discriminatory beliefs are unfounded. The highest incidence of complaints to the board have been received in Calgary and Edmonton, and "85 per cent of the complaints investigated have been well founded," said Mr. Newkirk. Wage discrimination problems are closely associated with discrimination against women, because they are the most widely affected group. "Many wage disputes, especially those concerning women go un-heard. The fear of losing a job, no matter how bad the pay, often prevents a woman from making a complaint. "Investigation of a wage complaint could lead to the loss of the job and whatever pay was being received," he said. The greatest discriminators against women's job opportunities as stated by Mr. Newkirk, are some banks, which, he said, refused to train women for management positions. "T h e commission investigates every written complaint it receives, but in matters of age discrimination we are limited to disputes involving only th? age group between 45 years to 65 years old," he said. The evening's second seminar speaker was Rufus Good-striker, from Cardston. Mr. Goodstriker does not believe women's liberation is a step in the right direction and jokingly added he believed a woman should be beaten once a day. He credited both the libera- tion of women and science as the major causes of the breakdown in society and added that the races of all colors were merging and the brown man would once again rule this country, by explaining all of the colors of humanity combined would create a brown-skinned people. Mr. Goodstriker said that the taking of the mothers from the home created too many false-mothers and eventually lead to a loss of the natural respect that the young should show for their elders. Discrimination is not confined only to mankind. Nature's variety is often far more brutal, he said. "Put a pig in a strange pig yard, especially if it is dirty and scabbing and it will not live the night. "li you put four horned steers into a feed lot full of steers without horns - the ones with horns will grow heavier without knowing it. They drive the others away with jabs of their horns as they eat the food," he said. Personal confusion, sadness, and the inability to adjust can lead to discrimination, or to conditions that will soon cause it. Lack of work is also a determining factor, he believes. "I represented Canada in Germany during the Olympics this past summer and while I was there I was treated like a king. Everywhere I went I saw people with beer and wine, all day long and nobody was sad or drunk. "I think that is because they also all have jobs, net with high pay, but jobs just the same," he said. "If you are caught begging on the street you will be put away amd the next day you will have a job painting the curbs," he said. "They are all happy, but that is because they all work and get money. "Having money is not bad, but being greedy is - it is like discrimination." 112-seat restaurant planned for Eaton's By WARREN CARAGATA Herald Staff Writer Two Cranbrook youths pleaded guilty in provincial court Wednesday to charges of break, enter, and theft, and were remanded to Feb. 14 for sentencing.

Dr. Ed Andrews, director of the station, said the preliminary design is complete, including the layout. He said some changes to the office wing will have to be made to accommodate the additional 16 employees of the federal government production and marketing staff now located in the Post Office building. The decision to include the extra employees was made recently. He said the addition of the extra personnel would only add a slight cost to the complex.
