Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 12, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID - Monday, February 12, 1973 LCI beauty culture course Business lacks live customer Bevy of beauty culturists . . LCI students with "customers" University denies comment U of L staff seeks CSA support Non - academic staff at the University of Lethbridge hope to have the support of the Civil Service Association of Alberta before the end of this month. Clothier retires Following 40 years of association with ladies' wear firms in Lethbridge and Calgary, the manageress of Imperial Women's Wear Ltd., located in the McFarland building, is retiring. Mrs. Mabel A. Kirkland of 20J4 9th Ave. S. will leave the clothing business at the end of the month, but her business, purchased by her son Don, will continue at the same location. Peter Zubersky, past president of the U of L staff association and now president of the four - man CSA steering committee on campus, said today he does not know exactly how many workers will be involved with the new association. He said a list of eligible members is expected from U. of L personnel director T. F. Cuthbert. Mr. Cuthbert refused to discuss the labor issue with The Herald, saying he is "not prepared to give out any information." Mr. Zubersky said janitorial secretarial, maintenance and security workers will be involved in the association. He said the CSA campus committee is now obtaining signatures from workers interested in certification. ANNUAL MEETING CANADIAN RED CROSS LETHBRIDGE BRANCH MONDAY, FEB. 26th 8:00 p.m. RED CROSS ROOMS 7th Avenue South Only one other institution, the University of Calgary, has CSA representation for non-academic staff members, Mr. Zubersky said. "When the university first started, one of the administrators suggested we should have some group to represent the support staff. "The Civil Service Association is the only group that could represent a Crown institution such as the university. The CSA can give us better communication between administration and personnel and a stronger voice in grievances or demands," Mr. Zubersky said. He said the local CSA committee is now seeking signi-tures from 50 per cent of the 180 full - time support staff for certification. "Before the Civil Service Association could start a U of L branch, it must have 40 members. We have that now. We've been working on this since the fall and hope to have final certification by the end of the month," Mr. Zubersky said. With Mr. Zubersky on the local CSA executive are Roy Turner, vice - president, caretaker; Monica Millward, secretary, purchasing secretary; and Boss Westbrook, treasurer, utility worker. Save the deer - police Motorists are requested to help save the city's deer population by slowing down when driving through the river valley on Highway 3. City police report that two deer have been killed within the last week on the west approach to the city. Driving at 40 miles per hour -the speed limit - drivers should be able to avoid hitting the deer, Insp. Bill West said Monday. Undamaged meat from the dead animals is given to various welfare organizations in the city. RAYMOND MOTORS CO., LTD. ARE NOW RELOCATED IN THEIR NEW PREMISES Our New Telephone Number 752-3324 WATCH FOR OUR GRAND OPENING By HERB LEGG Herald Staff Writer There's a booming business in Lethbridge that few people know about, that pays for a city trade licence each year, supplies a commodity in demand everywhere and provides invaluable education to countless young dttwns. CurioOel You won't find this "busioeM" listed in the yellow pagas, although it's as accessible as any public building you can name. Five days a week, from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., students enrolled in the beauty culture course of the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute break out their smocks and begin  studies geared to practical employment and personal responsibility. Studies may not be the right word to describe the course given by instructor Norman Wilson, even though his Grade 10,11 and 12 students are learning. The 60 students of the program experience too much enjoyment to consider their course one of study. � That combination of enjoyment and knowledge, according to Mr. WHson, is what education is really all about. "This type of program needs support from the public. We welcome anyone who wants to come in, look around and just visit - they can even get their hair done here. "We open this course so the public can see their money in action. Mrs. Ferguson, that's Aid. Vera Ferguson, is one of our regulars here," Mr. Wilson says. Because the course holds a valid trade licence - and because the youngsters in the beauty course receive solid, professional training - Lethbridge businessmen don't look upon the project as competition. "Most of our girls here are working part-time. I try to contact the local beauty salons around Christmas and get these kids out there working. "The business community has been just great. They really cooperate with us," Mr. Wilson says. Although the practical experience available to the LCI students is invaluable to a youngster about to enter the working community, more personal interest by local citizens is needed. "School is a socializing process. It's better that they get accustomed to working with people, satisfying these people, learning how to work. "A lot of these kids didn't know how to work before they came to this course." "Schools and courses like this need support. Why don't people get involved and come down to see what we offer? They don't have to make use of the facilities, just take a look at what we offer and give us their comments," Mr. Wilson says. Sixteen - year - old Susannah Stringam is a Grade 11 student at LCI, now in her second year of the beauty culture aourse. She is not a vocational student. "I first started this course to fill a spare. I think it's good because I can have both my matriculation and my vocation. "I think it's going to be a Mirror, mirror on the wall Instructor Normal Wilson cutting hair really great thing to get me through university," Miss Stringam says. She plans to continue the beauty course next year before graduating from LCI and enrolling in political science at the University of Alberta. Eventually, she hopes to become a journalist. Miss Stringam hasn't found any surprises in store for her under the beauty program - but she, like her classmates, misses the opportunity to have a more direct link with the public. "There's a lot of standing on your feet and it's really boring after the fifth mannequin. At least you can talk to a customer and she'll talk back,'' Miss Stringam says. But she's not giving up. She continues to put in 12 hours a week in the LCI course - and enjoys her training. Susan Dunn an is 17, will graduate from LCI this spring and is now taking her third year of the beauty culture course, "I just took it as a course, decided I liked it and stayed with it. I'm working part-time now and I plan to go into hair styling. "I look upon it as an art now. It's something like doing a picture only you're doing a hair style," Miss Dunhan says. She also believes more interest from the public would be welcomed by LCI students. "It would be a lot more help if we had some more people down here. A lot of the girls don't get a chance to do that many customers," she says. One group of regular customers, every Wednesday, are students from the Dorothy Gooder School. But that'i Just once a week. Lethbridge man to attend summer seminar in India A Lethbridge man will attend an internaitional seminar in India this summer under the auspices of the World University Service of Canada.
