Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 22, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, January 22, 1975 refuses 1 i Cow Camp may leave Herald Legislature Bureau EDMONTON The Alberta government won't approve Cow Camp wilderness school near Brooks, Health Minister Neil Crawford said Tuesday. Mr. Crawford said the fate of American teacher Jeff Smith and a dozen students from the United States" must be decided by Robert Andras, federal manpower and immigration minister. "Mr. Andras has successfully handled thousands of other immigrants. He should be able to handle Mr. Crawford said in an interview. "We don't think this is needed in he said, "but we are not trying to discourage it." "The proper channel is to go to the federal govern-, ment first. It is not our business to make recommen- dations to the federal government on immigration policies. "Our position is what it has always the minister said. Meanwhile, Fred Mandeville, opposition MLA for Bow .Valley, which includes Cow Camp, says he will ask Premier Peter Lougheed for provincial recogni- tion of the camp. Immigration officials have given Cow Camp a tem- porary stay of deportation proceedings until the camp can gain recognition. Mr. Mandeville told The Herald immigration authorities have bent over backwards to help Cow Camp students stay in Canada. The Bow Valley MLA has fauled Health Minister Crawford for "refusing to bend on this." Cow Camp "doesn't need a permit it doesn't need a license from the Mr. Mandeville said in a Herald interview. "If a cabinet minister for the province would only say it's all right for them to stay the federal government will waive deportation proceedings, he said. The province's health minister has been criticized by Mr. Mandeville for failing to give Cow Camp a "fair chance in cabinet" and by camp teacher Jeff Smith for being "untruthful" in replies made in the house to questions posed by Mr. Mandeville. Standoff road to end in West Lethbridge Community leagues becoming possibility in city u.r Ahtnv E1 A if The proposed Lethbridge Standoff highway should take a northerly route through West Lethbridge, the provin- cial highways department was told in a meeting in the city Tuesday! Department officials presented four alternative routes the highway could take within city limits in West Lethbridge to a meeting of city officials and planners from the regional planning commission. The meeting was closed, but reaction to the highways department proposals ap- parently was that the most northerly of the four routes would fit in best with West Lethbridge development proposals. interfering least with residential development. The 32-mile highway, which would s h o r t e n the distance between Standoff and Lethbridge by 24 miles, will necessitate construction of another bridge across the Oldman River, west of West Lethbridge. It will connect with the 6th Avenue River crossing, due to open by the end of the month. A decision on which direc- tion the highway will take from the 6th Avenue crossing will also affect where the se- cond bridge will be located. By ANDY OGLE Herald Staff Writer Lethbridge may be getting to the size where community leagues will start to develop, the city's community services director says. "We've looked at the possibility in our long range planning that several areas could develop community said Bob Bartlett in an interview. The Gilbert Paterson com- munity school addition could be a stimulus for one to form in that area, and if the Neighborhood Improvement Program is adopted by West- minster residents, that could be another stimulus, he said. "Our own direction is toward area programming more and more with local peo- ple in the community running particular projects." RESIDENTS HELP Even at the Stan Siwik Pool, for example, a group of residents have taken over some of the scheduling, Mr. Bartlett said. But, he added, at present his department has defined major city facilities such as pools and ice arenas as city-wide facilities. Ideally, Mr. Bartlett said, a community centre should function within schools. A pilot project in this direc- tion the Gilbert Paterson addition is nearing com- pletion. It will include a gym with a special rubberized floor that will be resistant to just about everything, a shop extension with areas for woodwork, metal work, photography, graphics and plastics, a kitchen, and several all- purpose rooms. While it's being initiated by the city and the public school board, it's expected people in the community will provide the impetus for community programming at Gilbert Paterson. At the other end of town, a McKillop School starts community centre venture INSTRUCTOR MAUREEN PARKINSON LEADS EXERCISE GROUP community school on a small- er scale has been initiated at. George McKillop by people who turned out to a meeting sponsored by the home and school association. MCKILLOP START If enough people are interested it could eventually evolve into a community league, says Principal Gordon Lowe, who has thrown his full support behind the community school idea. Community schools are viewed as a natural extension of community use of schools by Mr. Bartlett and his department's community program co-ordinator Brian Bourassa. A highly successful joint- use agreement between the city and the two school boards has been in operation since 1969. It gives the community ser- vices department control of schools after 6 p.m. and on weekends, while giving schools access to city facilities during the day. Through this arrangement, community groups that organize their own programs can use school facilities free as long as they operate on a non-profit basis. The community school which brings adults into the school during the day as well as evenings and weekends can act as a focal point for a com- munity, Mr. Bourassa feels. NO END-ALL But he doesn't see it as an "end-all" for social change. People .tend to define their own neighborhoods and a neighborhood could encom- pass three or four schools, he says. "People tend to go to a program to which they' can walk to rather' than drive, although we're spoiled here in Lethbridge by the short dis- tances." The community school concept, he says, might include educational activities, but it certainly isn't restricted to that. PHOTO CLUB "It might include for ex- ample, a community group forming its own photography club and using the darkroom at Gilbert Paterson." The entire community school addition at Gilbert Paterson should be open by March, but it will likely be next fall before most programs are operating, he said. "We see the same thing happening at Paterson that happened at McKillop even- tually input really should come from people."

The University of Lethbridge drama department and the Playgoers of Lethbridge are producing the play for presentation in April. A recommendation calling for expansion of the new fami- ly life education program to Grades 7 and 9 next fall is to be presented to the separate school board today. Superintendent Ralph Himsl will make the recommenda- tion on the basis of a successful evaluation of the family life education program introduced in Lethbridge separate schools at the Grade 8 level last fall. The successful implementa- tion of the program proves "early fears" about introduc- ing such a program at the grade school level were "un- the superintendent states in his report on the program evaluation. "I seems now that the fears lay in us and not the he says. "Students did not snicker or sneer at. the instruction teachers found the instruction on male and female physiology caused them no trouble or he continues. The evaluation included interviews with teachers and parents, student response on a survey, superintendent obser- vations and comments of per- sons who planned and instructed the course. "Our concerns about sup- port of the parents proved completely baseless, perhaps because of the-care given to Mr. Himsl states in the report. Parents were included in the organization of the family life education program and its content prior to its implemen- tation and the course instruc- tion involved direct contact with parents. Those teaching and working directly with the program met; parents during six special meetings. The number of parents attending varied from 45 to 125. The evaluation report suggests evidence that the students "can identify the Playboy outlook on sex and they can contrast that outlook with the view that integrates sex into one's entire life must be considered a benefit of the program.

The meeting, attended by some 35 peojjle at the Lethbridge public library, also named Roy Montgomery, treasurer, Gladys Palmer, secretary, and Eileen .Cashmore, Jack Innes, Elaine Thacker and Bob Babki, vice presidents. Dick Johnston, Lethbridge East PC candidate in the up- coming provincial election spoke to the meeting, which was taken up mostly with resolutions to be submitted to the Tory provincial- annual meeting in Calgary Mar. 7-8-9. Four resolutions on irrigation, natural resources, hail and crop insurance, and a single court to deal with matrimonial problems were discussed and are being revis- ed for submission to the Calgary meeting. A modest venture into the community school concept began this week at George McKillop School. Two keep fit classes, mix- ed volleyball and men's basketball will be offered at the school, 5th Avenue and 21st Street N., as an initial step towards what the McKillop Home and School executive and Principal Gordon Lowe hope could grow 'into establishment of a com- munity league or club. A committee set up after an initial public meeting on the community school idea is also investigating starting a com- munity library in the school, implementing a pottery program and showing family movies in the school. The project began last month with an idea brought to the home and school by the school's four Grade 1 teachers, said Dorothy Winchester, president of the home and school association. TEACHERS' IDEA The teachers proposed setting aside one afternoon a week when parents of Grade 1 students could come to school and work with their children. A baby sitting service would be provided to look after pre school children so parents could devote all their atten- tion to the child in Grade 1. That idea, which is still be- ing studied as a separate pro-- ject, initiated discussion about a community school and led to formation of the com- munity school committee. A survey sent home with school children produced 136 responses with only one reply opposed .to the idea and 83 people indicating a willingness to participate. FAMILY TOGETHERNESS 'A lot of young families like doing things as a said Mrs. Winchester, who has one child in Grade 1 and two pre schoolers. "There are a lot -of programs all over town, but few of them are casual enough that you can walk in with two children and play floor hockey, or work with clay." The initial programs begin this week women's keep fit class Wednesday's from to p.m.; an adult mixed keep fit class, Tuesdays from 7 to S p.m.; with mixed volleyball from 8 to 9 p.m., and men's basketball 9 to 10 p.m. Wednesdays. "We decided to start with these because we felt if we got the parents in the habit of coming to the school, it would be one sure way of getting it Mrs. Winchester said. A YWCA "gym and junk" program for children aged 6-8 and their parents will also begin in the school this week and will run on Thursdays from to p.m. SMALL START While the McKillop com- munity school is starting small, a fare more ambitious program is envisioned as an eventual possibility. The programs are open to all residents of northeast Lethbridge, not just parents of children in the school. If the project grows, said McKillop Principal Lowe, it could spread to utilize several schools, rinks, swimming pools, or other facilities in the area. The school has applied for a culture youth and recreation department grant to hire two students this summer to sur- vey the entire area north of 1st Avenue N. and east of 13th Street N. to find out what programs people are interested in and to find, resource people in the com- munity to run the programs. "One real drawback we have in-terms of fully develop- ing a community school just in McKillop is that we're geared to primary grade children and hence we don't have too many facilities available for an ex- tensive said Mr. Lowe. LEAGUE CENTRE "But if there is forming a community league, it could use our school, Wilson Junior High, Westminster, Galbraith, and Winston Churchill High School." Mr. Lowe sees the primary purpose of community school programming as social con- tact. "Usually when you hear about a community school it's because somebody says here's this great building that's emp- ty after school's out. "That didn't come up once here they were concerned that there seemed so little social inter action in the community. "It's the social aspect that makes it go." Mrs. Winchester agrees. "Initially the main advantage will be to get parents in the neighborhood, whose children already share something, to get to know each she said. Mr. Lowe and Mrs. Winchester credited several; agencies with helping get the community school idea off the ground. Mandeville wins Socred banner BROOKS (Special) Brooks rancher Fred Mandeville Tuesday night won the Social Credit nomination for the Bow Valley constituen- cy. He was unopposed. Mr. Mandeville, borri at Lethbridge and educated at Skiff, was first elected to the Alberta legislature in 1967. More than 300 people attended the nomination meeting in the Royal Cana- dian Legion Hall here. ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC fctawttlMi. 22251k SI. S.
