Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 18, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, January 18, 1975 Commentary Council searching for perspective in executive suite togetherness By ANDY OGLE Herald Staff Writer There's nothing particularly unusual about the Holiday Inn's ninth Floor executive suite, but Cor a city still used to doing most of its business at ground level, it offers a different perspective. And that perhaps is what the nine members of city council were looking for when they decided to spend an entire day there. They closeted themselves at the Inn today the phar- macist, the ex house wife devoting herself full time to civic life, the lawyer, the two school teachers, the senior citizens' lodges ad- ministrator, the community agency, director, the retired city employee, and the shoe store proprietor to try and find out what makes each other tick. UNDERSTANDING The theory behind the exer- cise was that if they can all understand each other better and if they can come to grips with why they're sitting in "those big yellow chairs" around the council table, they might be in a better position to conduct the business of the city for the next two years and nine months. Whether or not anything of lasting value results from the seminar, and aldermen show- ed differing opinions on that when they discussed the seminar agenda Monday, the mere fact it was held at all marks a new direction for Lethbridge city councils. Not coincidentally. the seminar also marks the three- month anniversary of a fledgl- ing council that in its short life has shown itself to be striking- ly different from it's predecessor. CALM BEFORE STORM It also marks the calm before the storm in another month or two, aldermen will be up to their elbows in the-; 1975 operating budget, the document that determines what programs will be carried out by the city for the rest of the year. Perhaps a new council always brings with it new enthusiasm and new energies that made the last days of the retiring council seem lethargic and uninspiring. But the breath of fresh air that blew into city hall last A review Oct. 16 shows no sign of abating. That a new mood prevailed on council showed itself quick-' ly in two small changes smoking was banned from council chambers, and the starting time for council meetings was moved up from the traditional 8 p.m. to p.m. Council's agenda has con- sistently been stocked with resolutions from aldermen 23 have been submitted between them by Aid. Tony Tobin and Aid. Bob Tarleck alone something that rarely happened in the last year and a half of the last council's term. WIDER DEBATE One result has been much more extensive and wider ranging debate on the choices before the city on everything from industrialization and growth policies to street nam- ing and dog control. PERSONAL CLASHES At the same time, with this diversity of opinion to deal with, there have been a few highly personal clashes and some unproductive bickering. It was with such things in mind that the seminar was held, away from the pressures of agendas packed with matters requiring immediate decisions, and away from the publicity spotlight. If indeed aldermen got to know one another's points of views better, it will have produced a modest success, and council meetings will con- tinue to display the vitality (hat has been exhibited the past three months. Players are a musical Canada first By PAT ORCHARD MODE 1 HD81 G.E. HAIR DRYER Faster drying 1000 watts. SPECIAL 3588 Call Housewares 327-5767 DOWNTOWN The Cassenti Players, com- prised of eight well-known Canadian artists and organiz- ed by George Zukerman per- formed to a capacity audience at the Yates Memorial Centre Friday night. The program began with Mozart's Eine kleine Nacht- musik for string quintet. This is by far the most popular and favoured of Mozart's mixed orchestral works, and it received an accomplished, yet somewhat heartless, perfor- mance from the quintet. They seemed to need a wider range of nuance, and to play with more overt feeling. There was a distinct lack of dynamic contrast, not only in the fortissimo passages, but in many of the softer ones as well. Nevertheless the artists conveyed the serene tempo of the romance, and played the marvellous interlude in the minor key beautifully. The finale could have been more vigorous, and one was left with the impression that a group of first-rate musicians had just given a somewhat FOX DENTURE CLINIC Est.1922 PHONE 327-6565 E. S. P.

The Cassenti Players went on to give a glowing exposi- tion of Beethoven's theme and variations from the Septet Opos 20. They had the type of rapport which enabled them to take on the quality of en- joyable conversation. Tempos were aptly judged to the music, and there was a freshness and point to the variations which enabled the performance to be witty, giv- ing it an idiomatic flavour akin to Beethoven's not very solemn intentions. The first half of the program concluded with Carl Nielsen's Sonata in Vana, dur- ing which the Cassenti Players captured the fresh 'charming and humorous quality of the composition to perfection. The evening concluded with Schubert's Octet Op. 166 in F major. Although the octet is a carefree work, the players, while allowing this quality some expression, did not emphasize it. Their com- paratively restrained range of dynamics and slowish tempos conveyed a feeling of sedateness which ideally suited the music. The artists responded to the darker side of the work, yet managed to convey the humour that sets it in its true perspective. Mr. Paul Grice was superb; many clarinettists lay too heavy an expressive burden on this cherished masterpiece, but his control in the adagio dis- tilled the music's lyrical es- sence to perfection. Similarly, the variations were unfailing- ly beautiful. If and when Schubert fails to interest, his movements seem unduly long. However, last evening's per- formance was fifty minutes of unalloyed delight. Judging from last evening's display of artistry and vir- tuosity, it is no wonder that Taras Gabora, David Zafer, Gerald Stanick, Malcolm Tait, Robert Meyer, Paul Grice, George Zukerman and Robert Creech are considered to be eight of Canada's top- ranking musicians. Mr. Zukerman is to be con- gratulated in particular, not only for his outstanding musical ability, but also for his organizational feat. He has created Canadian musical history by bringing together such a galaxy of talent to per- form works which, although well known, rarely find their way onto the concert plat- form. Study in contrasts As the warmth of the Chinook temporarily dissolves Southern Alberta's winter Suit asks for finger An old injury has come back to haunt the Lethbridge public school board. A former student of Winston Churchill High School has launched a suit against the board for an injury he received in an industrial arts class at the school in 1972. Rick Wade Wood lost a por- tion of one finger in the school accident but didn't launch the claim against the board until almost two years later. Secretary-treasurer Mack Crumley said Friday the suit came as a complete surprise to the school board as it wasn't even aware the acci- dent occurred and had not heard anything about it until the suit was launched. The claim was filed just before the two year statute of limitations deadline. "I don't know why it wasn't filed Mr. Cumley said. If it loses the suit, the school system may not be covered by insurance, the public school board was informed this week. The insurance company handling the case for the board indicated the school board may have been in breach of a condition in the in- surance contract by not reporting the accident to the insurer.

PHONE THE 327-0240 327-2297 LOTUS From The CPR Depot By JIM GRANT Herald Staff Writer The first graduate studies course offered in Lethbridge faces an early exit as it enters its second session at the University of Lethbridge. The course, educational ad- ministration 649, was only attended by two students dur- ing the first session Jan. fewer than the minimum number of students required to continue the future Satur- day sessions. The problem appears to be a lack of publicity about the course and its sudden in- troduction into this area rather than a lack of interest. University graduate courses have been demanded for years by Southern Alber- tans, especially by those in the education profession. 200 INTERESTED An Alberta Teachers Association survey last year of Southwestern Alberta teachers showed that about 200 teachers are interested in taking graduate studies. An attempt by the Universi- ty of Calgary to offer graduate studies courses in Lethbridge came to a sudden halt when that university an- nounced in October that it was refused permission to provide the courses for this area. U of C did not indicate who refused it permission, but Calvin Steinley, principal of 'Erie Rivers High School at Milk River, believes the U of L had a lot to do with it. When he discovered that the U of C was interested in offer- ing graduate courses in Lethbridge, Mr. Steinley began a search to locate the stumbling block. He found no apparent reason why the U of C couldn't offer the courses. It appears the U of L was trying "to keep out Calgary to hurry" its own courses, the high school principal suggests. U STUDY The U of L, an un- dergraduate university, studied the possibility of offering graduate courses about six years ago and decid- ed that, it would offer such courses in the future but did not identify when such offerings might emerge. The U of L began a second review of the need last fall. It appeared to many of those interested in such courses being offered in Lethbridge that the whole issue was doomed to more months of entanglement in bureaucratic procedure and some educators began dis- cussing the feasibility of in- viting an American university to offer the courses in this area. Suddenly, the U of C and U of L began negotiating the possibility of jointly offering a graduate course at the U of L. "I don't know all the says Mr. Steinley. "I just know that suddenly we had a breakthrough and the graduate coiirse is now being offered in Lethbridge." Mr.: Steinley says the sudden' introduction of the course caught most interested persons by surprise. MADE CALLS After he and only one othe courses in Southern Alberta. During interviews this week, administrators from both universities spoke of co operating in the future and meeting the needs of people in this area. NO OBJECTION When asked about the possibility of the U of C offer- ing other graduate courses in Lethbridge, U of L vice president Owen Holmes said the U of L has no objection to other universities offering courses in its area if they aren't a repeat of local univer- sity offerings and the other university offers the courses in co operation with the U of Fred Terentiuk, U of C faculty of education director of continuing education, said in a telephone interview from Calgary "both institutions see their obligations to meet the needs" of the community. However, he was not sure returned from holidays and wasn't sure what had happen- ed between the two univer- sities during the past month. FUTURE UNKNOWN U of C officials in higher positions referred all questions to Dr. Terentiuk despite his lack of current in- formation. U of L director of continuing education in the faculty of education E. E. Falkenberg said in an interview he really doesn't know whether the U of C intends to expand its course offerings in Lethbridge or if education administration 649 is "a one shot deal." Meanwhile, he says, people interested in taking the graduate ui.u uiuj nut, vymci iiuwcvei, im was not sure person attended the first ses- whether any further meetings sinn Jan. 11, he phoned between officials of the two universities were planned to discuss expansion of the graduate course offerings to meet the obvious demand for Ctrtifltd Denial Mechanic CLIFF BLACK, BLACK DENTAL LAB MEDICAL DENTAL BLDG.

"Nobody knew anything about it" when he discussed the course with them and "were surprised" it was being offered, he found during his contact with teachers. The U of L ran an advertise- ment announcing that the course would be offered but made no effort to inform the news media about the negotiations it was having with the U of C or the subse- quent results of the negotiations. The U of L stayed mum on the. issue despite the interest shown previously in the es- tablishment of graduate MOVING? such courses.
