Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 14, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, Ftbruary 14, 1975 Scenic Drive lights still unrepaired The city is still awaiting word from a Win- nipeg manufacturer on replacement of faulty light standards used on the Scenic Drive overpass at 6th Avenue S. "Their people were here last week and ask- ed us to send one of the pieces back for a utility department spokesman said Thursday. There's been no decision yet, but there seems to be little doubt they'll replace them, he said. The double-arm standards were taken down last month after an arm on one of them broke off and a check revealed others were cracked. The cracks occurred where the shafts split into double arms. According to the utility department only the arms, made of a different metal than the shafts, will have to be replaced.

LmrLml P.HONI see the popular summer tourist attraction. Society past-president Ky Shigehiro said today con- sideration was given to open- ing the gardens during the Games but snowdrifts and the cold weather discouraged such action. However, if visitors want to see the gardens and the drifted snow in front of the gate can be cleared, the socie- ty would reconsider arranging visits to it. While the bare ground without the beauty of flowers has no attraction, Mr. Shigehiro said the scene created by a white blanket of snow over the surface of the gardens does have eye appeal. The winter scene certainly has attracted photographers, he said. Student may publish in journal Another University of Lethbridge undergraduate could soon join the ranks of those whose research has been published in inter- national scientific journals. Malcolm Lowings, a second year arts and science student, would be one of about a dozen U of L students who have taken part in writing published papers, says a release from the university. At all except the largest un- iversities, only graduate students do research, says C. 0. Bender, chairman of the U of L chemistry department. But the U of L is an un- dergraduate university, and there are no graduate students competing for research assistant jobs. Instead of waiting for their senior year or graduate school, students can be active in research as early as their first year. The university gives priority to projects in- volving students, which en- courages faculty to use them, said the chemistry chairman. The chemistry department is active in research, and ac- cording to Prof. Lome Hepler, some students are eager to become research assistants. They are paid little, or not at all if the research is for degree credit, but the professors are work- ing with them. Lalonde here today Federal Health Minister Marc Lalonde returns to Lethbridge today to attend a reception at the University of Lethbridge and two closing sports ceremonies. The health minister, who was here earlier in the week, will officiate Saturday at the closing of curling and wrestl- ing events. INQUIRE NOW ABOUT THE NEW Bcmacca ind RABBIT .at RAEWOOD MOTORS LTD. VOLKSWAGEN PORSCHE AUDI New LCC health offerings postponed All proposals for new health services courses at Lethbridge Com- munity College have been postponed, says the LCC dean of instruc- tion. They must await the results of a study ordered by Advanced Education Minister Jim Foster on how to phase in the government's policy of moving all health education into post secondary in- stitutions, said Keith Robin. The task force should report to the minister by September, said Dr. Robin. The college has prepared a brief on health education, which will go to the next board of governors meeting. If approved there, it will be submitted to the task force, he said. The LCC master plan suggested assistant laboratory technician as a practical course that would meet with a good reaction. The report also lists a score of courses under consideration for the college as of last fall. Some have been re- jected by the board of governors or the depart- ment of advanced education, says Dr. Robin, but eight or nine are in various prepara- tion stages. Research is just beginning into, the possibilities of hor- ticulture or floristry, photographic technology, building construction and mining technology. Academic remedial, teachers' aide and general arts and science studies are ready for submission to Edmonton, he said.
