LCC students to boycott cafeteria By RON' CAUHVELL Staff Writer In an effort lo add weight to their demands for better and cheaper food, students at the Lethbridge Community College will stage a three-day boycott of the cafeteria in the mids of this week's Chinook Winter Car- j nival festivities. The boycott is set for KEN IIUHLHUIIT Hurlburt will seek nomination Ken Hurlburt, 43, former mayor of Fort Macleod, will announce Ms intention at a press conference this afternoon to seek the Progresive Con- servative nomination for the Lethbridge riding in the next federal election. The seat will be vacant with the retirement of Deane Gundlock, 57, Lethbridge MP since 1958. Born in Lethbridge and asso- ciated with agriculture all his life. Mr. Hurlburt is president of Fort Macleod Auction Mar- ket Ltd. and organizer of Prime Feeders Ltd.. a 5.000- tead cattle feeding operation. Mr. Hurlburt resigned as of Fort Macleod in late 1971 after foui years, giving pressure from business as the reason. Also seeking the Lethbridge Conservative party nomination is John Gogo, 39, regional man- ager of Investors Syndicate Ltd. The only Literal candidate to declare his intention so far to seek the nomination is John Boras, lawyer and former dis- trict farmer, the runner-up to Mr. Gundlock in the 1968 elec- tion.

There is one instructor for 30 students who do most of the cocking, part of LCC's regular food services curriculum. 'The cooks aren't to blame because tharc is inadequate su- pervision. The supervision can't be blamed because there is not enough of said student's council representative Darrcll Hanson. Frozen chunks of chili toast, with the bread wrapper still on it, 12 to 18 shriveled french fries for 30 cents are just a few of the incidents that have sparked the boycott, students say The boycott, which will in- volve placards and picket lines has also been timed to coincide with the annual LCC Open House when several hundred high school students will visit the cp'lege to have a look at what it has to offer. The protest has apparently been planned to make the col- lege administration look bad in front of about 800 prospective students. The "Open House" is set for Thursday. Faculty support is also being generated by UK organizers. T h e word has reportedly spread among the teachers to bring their own lunch during the boycott. An official of the Canadian Restaurant Association is to be contacted and asked to visit the college to evaluate the food services division. Students say they arc not only unhappy with the quality of locd but also with the prices they have to pay. They say an "average" meal in the" LCC cafeteria costs while a better-quality meal at the Medicine Hat Community College sells for 80 cents. Organizers stress that the winter carnival week protest will be well organized and quiet. "We will set up picket lines in front of the cafeteria and will discourage people from en- tering, but no force of any kind will be said Darrcll Hanson. The protest was not or- ganized by the student's coun- cil but is the result of "popu- lar discontent" throughout the student body, he said. The purpose of the boycott is to bring about improved food services by whatever method the administration wants Mr. Hanson said. Combined hospital board meets The Amalgamated Hospital Board will hold its first meet- ing tonight to elect officers and appoint committees. The meeting is closed to the press but results of the election and committee appointments will be announced Tuesday morning. The first regular meeting of Ihe new board, open to the press, is scheduled for Feb. 2.1.

Under regular council busi- ness, two taxation bylaws are up for first, second and third reading. If the property lax bylaw re- ceives all three readings to- night, the tax-rate for 1872 will officially be set at 70 mills. The second bylaw provides for the imposition of an eight per cent business tax based on the assessed business of each firm in the city. Two other bylaws on the agenda deal with develop- ment in West Lethbridge. Three readings could be given tonight to a bylaw estab- lishing an executive commit- tee responsible for "adminis- trative d i rection, organization and policy" concerning effi- cient development of the land across the Oldman River. The five-member committee would consist of Aldermen Vera Ferguson, Vaughan Hembroff and Ed Bastedo.

It's a strange name to the people of Lethbridgo because the city has always previously held it's canvasiing en a Sun- day. Heart Fund chairman Edna McMullin hopes that the new scheduling will work as well here as it has in Edmonton and Calgary. Five hundred and fitly volun- teers will call en Lethbridge residents tonight between 5 and 7 o'clock. There is no objective set, but the Heart Foundation hopes to exceed its 1371 donations of Why give to the Heart Fund? This is a question which mil- lions of Canadians might well p ask the Cana- i dian Heart Foundations arc conducting the annual Heart Fund campaign lo raise to fight heart and blood vessel disease. The incidence of these dis- eases is of epidemic propor- tions, with Canadians being affected. More than half the deaths in Canada arc caused by them. More progress has been made in the last 20 years than in all previous medical history. Many outstanding advances are the results of research sup- ported by Heart Fund dollars coronary care units in hos- i pitals, open-heart surgcy, or- gan transplants, new drugs and niplete bulanee drivers are trained ind lead a normal life. An emergency hea.t hospitals have Bloods plan nature park A Eloixl Indian timber re serve .which adjoins Watcrlon National Park will be converted into an Indian .natural park, says Ed Fox, Blood band man- I ager. I All tree cutting in the area will be discouraged from now on and some tree rep'nnting will occur in the near future, lie said. The timber reserve is nes- tled in mounUinmis terrain, and has ninny small rivers and creeks through it.

CMHA plans workshop for volunteers The Southern Region of the Canadian Mental Health Asso- ciation will hold a volunteer training workslnp the evening of Feb. 13 and the morning ot Feb. 19 in the auditorium of the Lethbridge Municipal Hos- pital nurses residence. The program is designed to introduce and improve volun- teer skills as a complement to the professional programs for the mentally techniques for treatment and surgery. The Heart Foundation con- ducts programs of professional and public education. Because of Heart Fund dol- lars, there has been a 24 per csnl reduction in the heart death rale in people under 65 years old, since 1950. Thousands of Canadians arc now alive who would have died prematurely if 1950 heart death rates prevailed today. Lethbridgites were surprised lo see the return Saturday of The Canadian passenger ser- vice of CP Hail, which last pulled out of Lethbridge July 3, 1971. It was by accident, not by design. A CP Rail spokesman said due io a derailment at Cluny, Ihe Medicine Hat-Calgary line was closed for hours Satur- day. One car of a west-bound freight train overturned. As a result, a passenger train was diverted and it pass- ed through Leihbridge at p.m. on its journey from Med- icine Hat to Calgary.
