Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 24, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Saturday, February 24, 1973-- U of L students elect council executive A 20-year-old arts and science student' - dedicated to "opening channels of communication at all levels" -has been elect- ed senior executive officer of the Students' Society Council at the University of Lethbvidge. Ken Bartlett, a second - year * * 4 Senior executive officer . Ken Bartlett wants improved communication Federal Liberal group schedules annual meeting student at the campus, defeated three other candidates tor the position in voting Friday. Returning officer Joe Gry-szczuk said about 500 of 1,500 eligible full or part-time students cast ballots. All votes had been counted within 15 minutes of poll closure Friday afternoon. Eight other students were elected to one-year terms as student representatives to the SSC: Louis Ouellette, Geraldine Young, Hoy Beckman, Bill Latta, Chub Macmillan, John Mclnnis, Janet Milne and Tim Firth. Mr. Bartlett, who succeeds former senior executive officer Jessie Snow, said he hopes to remove students from their role on the SSC "as a sort of social committee. "I'd like to take an ombudsman approach to effect reform. There's not enough encouragement to students to be active in the administration of their academic careers," Mr. Bartlett said. He said communication must be improved at all U of L levels - from the board of governors and senate to the community. "There will be more advance information made available to students on student affairs. All motions to the SSC will be posted and known a week in advance of a scheduled meeting. "There must be an informed union of students to collectively say 'This is what we desire.' Once the board of governors or university senate realize we have an informed student body they will be more concerned with student problems," Mr Bartlett said. He said he does not plan to keep university affairs "shut up in board rooms. It's going to go out to the students and to tb� community." The annual meeting of the' Lethbridge Federal Liberal Association will be held next Friday at 8 p.m. in Sven Ericksen's Family Restaurant. Guest speaker for the meeting, will be Marcel Prud'-homme, MP for Montreal-Saint-Denis and parliamentary secretary for Don Jamieson, minister for regional economic expansion. The meeting will be preceded by a cocktail hour at 5:30 and dinner at 6 o'clock. Tickets are $3 per person. Executive and officers for the year will be elected.

Educators meet a capacity turnout for the two-day convention Robbery suspects' hearing scheduled At teachers' convention Professor loses audience Three men charged with the Feb. 5 armed robbery of a Hardieville man several miles south of LtSibridge will appear in provincial court March 30 for a preliminary hearing into the charges. One of the men, Charles Dennis Avery, 27, of Taber, has been sentenced to 18 months imprisonment at Spy Hill Correctional Institution on a charge of break, enter, and theft at a private home in Calgary Aug. 28. The other two, Samuel Wayne Teague, 22, of Vancouver, and Michael Patrick O'Neil, 21, of Lethbridge, will appear in court weekly until the preliminary hearing. Both Teague and O'Neil have elected a trial in district court, but the preliminary hearing will establish whether the evidence against them warrants a trial. A lawyer acting for Teague asked the court Friday to reduce bail from $1,500 to a lower figure. Crown prosecutor Jim Lang-ston opposed the application on the grounds that a reduction cannot be made by the judge who set bail in the first place, but that an appeal must be made to a higher court. Last week, O'Neil was granted a reduction in bail by Provincial Judge L. W. Hudson, the same judge who bad first set his bail.  *  An 18-year-old Calgary youth, Terry Dale Warr, charged with PRECISION SHARPENING on Carbide-Tipped Circular Saws R.

Funeral Homes Ltd. (2nd GENERATION) Serving South Alberta for over half a century (1922-1972) Presents . . . THE SUNDAY HOUR THE SALVATION ARMY Directors: MRS. CAPT. BUTCHER and MRS. EUEN KENNEDY Accompanist. MRS. HELEN GEORGE SUN., FEB. 25th - 9:30 a.m to 10 cm. and 11:35 p.m. to 12:05 a.m. CJOC-TV Ch. 7 THE TRADITIONAL CHAPEL THE MEMORIAL CHAPEL 812 3rd Avenue South 703 13th Street North 2nd GENERATION FUNERAL DIRECTORS AND ADMINISTRATIVE COUNSELLORS FOR PRE-ARRANGEMBNTS (Authorized by the Alberta Government Security Commission) By HERB LEGG Herald Staff Writer Jlore than 1,300 Southern Al-ktWta teachers are heading home today following a successful two-day convention of the South Eastern Alberta Teachers'' Association. Friday was devoted mainly to 15 education workshops, ranging in topic from "fine, arts" and "retired teachers" to "exceptional children" and "modern, classical languages." Final speaker for the convention, Dr. Leon Jakobovits of Hawaii, was a disappointment to many delegates, who walked out of the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute auditorium after only 15 minutes of the Jakobovits' talk. A professor of psychology at the University of Hawaii, Dr. Jakobovits warned his audience his address might not be understood by some -but said he could not couch his talk in any simpler form. A steady stream of teachers left the auditorium from the time- Dr. Jakobovits began Architects for arena here Monday A preliminary design of the sportsplex, to be constructed for the 1975 Winter Games in Lethbridge, will be presented Monday to a city council committee planning the development. The presentation will be made by the Vancouver cqn-sulting firm of Phillips, Barratt, Hillier, Jones, and partners. Included in the presentation will be a detailed estimate of costs required to construct the multi-purpose arena. Initial estimates for the project total $2.8 million. Bob Bartlett, Community Services director, told The Herald that design work is still in the preliminary stages, and that calling of tenders for the facility is "a long way off." speaking until the time he concluded his remarks on "a transactional approach to new directions in teaching." Those who left, and many who remained, were not concerned ' with Dr. Jacobovits' topic - they just couldn't understand his highly intellectual theorizing. His address boiled down to one main factor; "If you want to know what's going on in the classroom, you have to look in the classroom, at the social transactions that take place there." That was the simplest statement Dr. Jacobovits made all afternoon. The balance of his speech would have been better received - and better understood - at a university - level postgraduate seminar. Southern Alberta teachers sought a message they could carry back to their classroom for better education and improved teaching practises. Farm, ranch development of tourist facilities sought Providing vacation facilities! for city dwellers could become a booming business for Alberta farmers and ranchers. The provincial government has formed a special project to assist rural land holders to get involved with tourist business by providing consulting services for any interested person. A group of farmers centred at Bentley, Alberta, formed an association in May, 1971, to offer farm vacations to citizens but due to lack of promotion and expertise, the venture never really got off the ground. In the spring of 1972 the provincial agriculture department became involved in a service capacity, providing the group with communication with other bodies of government to attain financial contacts, discuss problem areas and to help get insurance at better rates. Janet McCracken was named director of the agricultural recreation development project under the Alberta Department of Agriculture. Miss McCracken says farm recreation seminars will be held to assist farmers and ranchers understand the possibilities of using their facilities for the vacationing public. Part of the work to date has been the publication of a manual for farmers and ranchers to tell them how to get started. About 45 farmers and ranchers used the manual last year and with the foothills region in particular, the opportunity is tremendous for more persons to use the program. Miss McCracken says the provincial government has become involved because the farm vacation idea is another method of supplementing farm incomes. She says it will also improve urban-rural cultural relations since most urban residents have lost a lot of contact with the land through migration to the cities. Expansion of such a farm and ranch vacation industry would help to increase the economy of all of rural Alberta. To date, most of the activity in this type of industry has been focused on farms and ranches north of Calgary. Miss McCracken will be visiting in Southern Alberta in the next few months to discuss the possibilities for this region. APPOINTMENT E. C.
