Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 27, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 11 THI LITHMIOOI HHAIO tliunday, Januaiy 17, 197J GOING THROUGH THE PACES Members of the lelhbridge Com- They must olso maintain ocademic grades or they be required to inunily College marching drill team must practice their precise routines leave the team, teveral hours a week to maintain their sharpness and their scholarships. LCC athletes get scholarships CONCENTRATION These two members of the tCC badminton team bear down during one of the daily practice sessions. They also have to bear down in the classroom in order to maintain their scholarships. By RON CALDWELI. Staff Writer Ben Brooks, athletic co-ordin- ator at the Lethbridge Commu- nity College is a staunch defend- er of the principle of offering scholarships to attract good ath- letes. "It builds up the prestige of the campus in a way that noth- ing else says Mr. Brooks. "Athletics fills a tremendous need on a campus. It provides a focal point of interest and enthusiasm which no other pro- gram can generate." Mr. Stocks says those who criticize athletic scholarships while supporting academic scholarships are guilty of in- consistent thinking. "What is the difference be- tween a student who is a music major attending university on a music scholarship and an- other student who is a music major attending university on an athletic he asks. "To me, there is no difference at all." LCC resumed the practice of awarding athletic scholarships this year after a four-year hia- tus. Tuition scholarships are awarded in four areas bas- ketball, equestrian, badminton and the marching drill team. In all, about 45 students are attending the college on athletic scholarships. There are plans to extend this total by adding a 10 member snowmobile team, possibly this Lethbridge to get year. Mr. Brooks Lethbridge should receive about in municipal as- sistance grants from the pro- vincial government this year, city finance director Alastair Findlay said. The figure represents a 10 per cent increase over last year's grant of The increase is part of the WEST COAST SEAFOODS TRUCKLOAD SALE FRESH FISH and SEAFOODS Will be held at FORT WHOOP-UP SERVICE Thursday, January 27th and Friday, January 28th From a.m. to p.m. million hike in municipal assistance grants across the province announced by the Progressive Conservative Gov- ernment in Edmonton Wednes- day. The million ceiling on such grants instituted by the former government was being upheld by the Conservatives with strong opposition from the municipalities. Wednesday's announcement now puts the ceiling at mil- lion, to be distributed to the municipalities. Mr. Findlay said the In- crease is welcome here but that the exact amount avail- able to the city will not be known until mid-February. A formula based on equal- ized assessment and the local population has yet to be estab- lished. ALL HANDBAGS REDUCED TO CLEAR Semi-Annual SHOE CLEARANCE Now In Prooreii DISCOUNTS 20% to 50% off WINTER FASHION BOOTS AT REDUCED PRICES OPEN WED. TILL 6 P.M. THURSDAY TILL 9 P.M. 310A 6th ST. S. PHONE 317-3344 said the LCC scholarship prog ram differs from most of those in the United States because it only pays tuition, while many schol- arships awarded south of the border also pay for books, room and board and, in some cases, spending money. To receive an athletic schol- arship, the student first must make the team. To stay on the team and retain the scholar- ship, a "C" average or better is required. "We play no favorites. If a player doesn't measure up aca- demically on the first exams, he goes on probation and has until the next mid terms to >et his average back said Mr. Brooks. "If it doesn't improve, he's off the team and loses his schol- arship. We have a couple in that position right now." The college has foreseen the inevitable problem of a coach pressuring teachers to give passing grades to star athletes whether they deserve them or Dot. "All of our coaches are also said Mr. Brooks. "As teachers, they under- stand how such a situation could get out of hand. We are very aware of the potential problem that could develop here and we are taking great care to avoid it." LCC conducts an active re- cruiting program. "We attend as many high school events as possible and make it known we want good said Mr. Brooks. "We are trying to attract stu- dent athletes. We want the best of both worlds if we can get it." Mr. Brooks says he would like to see the athletic scholarship program extended to include other sports such as football, baseball, skiing, skeet and trap shooting and possibly hockey. But, in the meantime, he will continue to defend the philoso phy of athletic scholarships un- til the last whistle blows.
