16 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, January 23, Separate school problems identified in meeting The separate school system took a giant leap forward in its effort to define its educational purpose in Lethbridge during a one day community school meeting Wednesday. The discussions were frank as parents, teachers and trustees attempted to gain an understanding of the problems facing Catholic schools and students. After probing each others' views in small group sessions and listening to experts, the 170 who attended may gained better understanding of problems but they didn't arrive at any answers. The honest look at Catholic schools revealed that there weren't any obvious answers to the problems, said superintendent Ralph Himsl. UNDERSTANDING MAY HELP The process of gaining an understanding of the problems has created momentum with potential to make the separate school system more represen- tative of its religion, he said. He hoped that those who participated in the meeting would try to obtain changes in the system. People have a tendency to "escape from the freedom" they have to create change. They wait for someone else to do it for them, he said. MAKE CHANGES Mr. Himsl urged teachers, administrators and trustees to change "some things" in the separate schools. Schools will have to begin to look at ways of relieving the bureaucracy in which they are entangled, he suggested. The superintendent believes the school system must begin to develop an alternative to the practice of report cards. HIGH SCHOOL PRIEST The separate school must also continue study of es- tablishing a chaplain's post in Catholic Central High School, he continued. Such a move would allow the high school to become the parish for a priest. All changes must be toward the Catholic values of educa- tion in the schools and throughout the operation of the school system, Mr. Himsl. said. Teachers and trustees now have an opportunity for leadership that could set an example of religious values in practice, he suggested with reference.to teacher salary negotiations. SALARY NEGOTIATIONS "I am not talking about current salary negotiations. They're going to be all right and everybody will be pretty satisfied." However, he continued, as soon as an agreement is reached, both sides should take a sincere look at the process of negotiations now in practice. The separate school teachers are still without a 1975 contract and collective agreement talks are not ex- pected -to continue until next month. Once the current negotiations are completed, Mr. Himsl expressed hope that the initiative would come from both the trustees and teachers to approach the next negotiations with an under- standing for each others' position.

RUSSELL OUGHTRED Herald Staff Writer One hundred and sixty cars, trucks and buses, dispatched with military precision and piloted by some 400 volunteer drivers, will travel miles in Southern Alberta dur- ing the Canada Winter Games. Games transportation chairman Art Batty told 180 Games organizers and volunteer drivers Wednesday that Lethbridge is pioneering mass transit of athletes, VIPs and Games officials. Other cities conducting Games, he said, have been large enough to run sports events and house athletes in central Games villages. The 160 Games vehicles and 400 drivers to be dispatched around the clock will be under the direction of Armed Forces personnel on loan to the Games from CFB Calgary. Capt. Ernie Rice and WO Ian Maddock will provide nucleus of the dispatching system, which will send vehicles and volunteer drivers as far away as Bow Island and Blairmore. Capt. Rice told Games organizers at Wednesday's meeting that the Games com- plement of vehicles may look huge, but once the Winter Games start, that comple- ment may suddenly become "very sparse." "There is nothing we can do to program more vehicles into the Capt. Rice warned. WO Maddock said volunteers will be given quarters, immediately south of Games headquarters on 3rd Ave. S., in which to wait for driving assignments. All drivers will be screened by the Lethbridge City Police. Insp. Bill West told the meeting the Games' in- surance company requested a thorough inspection of all Games drivers. "Some volunteers I've had to turn down because of their driving he said. "We would hate to have someone fooling around with these he added. Bus organizers for the Games transportation com- mittee said most buses will be busy carrying athletes from the athletes' village to venue sites in 13 Southern Alberta communities. Schedules for these buses take up a 60 page timetable. City utility director Oil Er- dos said circuit buses will be operating during the Games to carry spectators and athletes to city venues. All Lethbridge Transit System buses will not charge fares during the Winter Games, Mr. Erdos said. After the meeting, trans- portation chairman Batty said he was very encouraged by the number of volunteer drivers and Games workers who turned out. An official from the provin- cial department of culture, youth and recreation told The Herald the Lethbridge Games are better organized than others he has seen. Dwight Ganske of Edmon- ton, Alberta's chef de mission at Saskatoon Winter Games and Burnaby Summer Games, said Lethbridge is better prepared than Saskatoon or Burnaby. Gallery to open despite fund lack With or without federal or provincial assistance, the Southern Alberta Art Gallery Association is going ahead with a project to open an art gallery at Lethbridge's old public library. At a meeting of the associa- tion Wednesday night members were told there will be no funds coming from the federal government at least until 1976. The provincial government said assistance might come around April but The auction would include paintings, photography, crafts, sculptures and other art works. Members of the art gallery association at the meeting were given booklets contain- ing "founding membership" cards that will sell for each. The membership cards, those at the meeting were told, will help raise funds to at least get the gallery open.

The association had asked the federal government for a museum grant, and asked the provincial govern- ment for Dr. Van E. Christou, presi- dent of the association, term- ed discussions and dealings with both governments "a dis- illusioning experience." But he said the art gallery association will be asking the provincial government for the whole There was a lengthy discus- sion on just how the art gallery could be opened without government assistance. One member said the city had donated the old library building and it would be a shame to loose the building. A motion was unanimously passed to set up a committee to carry out renovations in the old library beginning im- mediately after the Winter Games are over. The work would progress through March so the gallery could be opened by at least mid April. It was also agreed that ar- tists throughout Southern Alberta will be asked to donate one piece of work and all donated art works will be auctioned a week after the opening of the gallery! The money raised through such an auction would be put back into the operating costs of the association and combin- ed with any other fund rais- ing projects. One association member said, "The auction would be a matter of life and death for the operation of the gallery." Student union money needed for upkeep The use of the old Fort Whoop-Up Building as a stu- dent activity building could be lost to Lethbridge Community College students if there are no funds for upkeep, the students' association presi- dent told a general assembly Wednesday. About 175 people attended the assembly, called to dis- cuss two referendums to be held Feb. 5, one of the Student Union Building trust fund fee, and the other on campus food- services. Hal Gallup, students' coun- cil president, said the council has agreed to provide upkeep on the present building until it can afford a new building. A new students' union is not feasable, said Mr. Gallup. Us- ing the college owned Whoop-Up Building, and con- tinuing the per student per semester building fee will give students a facility now and allow them to save for the future, he said. MP Horner to speak BROOKS (Special) Jack Horner, Progressive Conser- vative member of Parliament for the Crowfoot will address the Tilley Unifarm oldtimers' banquet at p.m. Friday, Feb. 7, in the Tilley Community Hall. One student said Mr. Gallup was changing the concept of the building fund, which he said was for a new SUB. If the council wants to leavy a maintenance fee for the older building, it should go to the students for permission, he said. Mr. Gallup said the fund was for a student activity facility, not a new student ac- tivity facility. College President C. D. Stewart said the board of governors had to talk the ad- vanced education department into letting the college spend surplus funds on the building and department officials had wanted to know what the students would contribute. "Really the students don't have the present building un- less they contribute something towards said Dr. Stewart. voted in favor of joining the Allied Arts Council. A motion was passed to send a letter of application for membership to the council. It was pointed out that membership with the Allied Arts Council will give the gallery association represen- tation on the council and also will help to make a more un- ified voice in Southern Alberta for art groups. The next meeting of the art gallery association will be Feb. 19. At that meeting com- mittees will be set up to get renovations started on the old library building.
