Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 29, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THI UTHttlDOl HMALO fatvifey, January If, LCC filling need of hotels, motels The lack of proper hotel-mo- tel management is frequently responsible for poor service and high staff turnovers in the ser- vice industry, says Leftbridge restaurant owner Sven Erick- sen. Speaking at a Hotel Motel Management certificate cere- mony Friday, Mr. Erkksen said well trained management personnel are responsible for: good labor management rela- tions; keeping a business econ- omically viable; customers happy. and keeping A Hotel Motel Management course at Lethbridge Commu- nity College, fte first of its kind south of Calgary, is essential In providing the industry with personnel who will eventually obtain a complete understand- ing of management duties, he. said. The program, which began In September, is structured to al- low students to write the in tenttttonally erican Hotel recognized Am- Motel Associa- tion examinations following the successful cnmp 1 e t i o n of 10 courses, said Curt Smith, the LCC co-ordinator of the pro- gram. Students enrolled in the pro- grain are provided with hotel, motel management theory. Before enrolling in the pro- gram a student must com- plete one year of business ad- ministration course. Those receiving awards Fri- day were: Wayne Ericksen, Tom Wong, Norm Blacker, Bill Stewart, and Rita Cox. Vic ZielinsH, John Gillales and John Molyneux received certificates with distinction _ averaging more man 90 per cent in courses.

Senate hearings More agricultural courses needed at university By RUDY HAUGENEDER Stall Writer More general interest, re- fresher and upgrading courses in agriculture should be pro- vided at me University of Leth- bridge, says the Alberta Insti- tute of Agrologists. Presenting a brief to the U of L Senate Friday, the said that resource people for agriculture courses could be found at the Leth- bridge Reward) Station whlcb Is the second largest such fa- cility In Canada. All costs, except administra- tive costs, for such programs could be borne by those liking them, it was noted. Researcher John Home said there to a need for In-depth seminars that focus on specific agricultural areei or groups it the U of L. Hie seminars could vary in length of time. Dr. Bob Kitting, alto of the research station, said that be- cause southern Alberta la the centre of the province's agri- culture Industry the U of L should play an important part In the continued development of that industry. Researcher, Dr. Jim Bole, suggested the university could play the role of a "feeder" to UK University of Alberta which has a faculty of agriculture. Grade system hinders pupils The University of Lethbridff. grading system places students at a disadvantage when apply- ing for some post graduate courses elsewhere. Dr. G. S. Balfour of Leth- bridge told the Senate hearing that the four-point grading sys- tem used here places students wishing to entfer special pro- grams such as medicine, law and dentistry at larger univer- sities using a nine-point grad- ing system, at a distinct disad- vantage. The disadvantage- of the grading system applied here is that a few percentage points in a student's average mark can drop the student to an un- acceptable grade average at institutions where post grad- uate courses are available. Dr. Balfour said, if the nine- point grade system were incor- porated at the U of L, stu- dents would not be at the dis- advantage they are at present. The nine-point system would also enhance enrolment fig- ures because students would know their chances of entering would not be reduced by attending university In Lethbridge. he said. Dr. Bill Beckel, U of L pres- ident, suggested the nine-point Warmth to last Alberta in general and bridge in particular can look for the recent wanning trend to continue for the next 1% days. The Lethbridge weather of- fice reports that a surge of warm air from the Sea of Ja- pan through Alaska is respon- sible for the wamunfij trend, Temperatures should remain b !fe 20- to 30-degree range for today and Sunday with overnight lows of 10 to 15 degrees above. There will be some cloudy periods wMn brief snowy con- ditions existing throughout the forecast region.

Wondering aloud, Dr. Beckel asked whether it would be pos- sible to transfer the four-point system currently used to a per- centage mark average in spe- cial cases where people want- ed to enter post graduate pro- fessional faculties. Chief Judge Sherman Tur- cotte, Chancellor of the U of L, said Dr. Balfour's presentation was important because the grade point system seriously "affects the lives of students." A level of trtntferabiUty UM U of A U by establishing from hert to needed and, better Una of communication between the U of L and the research station, the resource people to teach agriculture courses could be obtained, he said. University of lethbridge Sen- ate Chancellor, Chief Judge Sherman Turcotte, asked whether something could be done to ensure that agriculture courses taken here are rec- ognized at the U of A. "Courses muet be tailored for he said. U of L president Dr. BUI Beckel said: "Something better can always be done." A more imaginative course advertisement for the U of L must be adopted. 'Urgent babysitting need' There is an "urgent" need for a babysitting service at the University of Lethbridge. However, U of L administra- tors, tied down' by a bog of red tape, have decreed there is no space for sudi a service at the new west campus. University president Dr. W. E. Beckel, in reply to a brief to the U of L senate by senator Jessie Snow, said no space has been set aside for such a service on the campus and pointedly suggested no space will be provided. In hallway discussion after the senate hearings of numer- ous briefs from the public, it was noted that large portions of tbe campus were currently vacant or nearly vacant and could easily be converted into a babysitting area. Using the university'! writ- ten philosophy, which notes the importance of higher education for everybody, Senator Snow said: "These statements have a bearing on the need for some kind of service to accommo. date students- with pre-school children "For those young married persons who must find some- one while they continue a degree program; for those women who must work while their husbands are endeavor- ing to upgrade themselves and Madcap duo thrills 950 By GARRY ALLISON Herild Staff The D's, Dick Davis and Duane Hiatt, held a capacity audience of 950 in the palms of their hands last night as they frolicked through a two-hour musical-comedy show. The LDS Stake Centre was the scene of the madcap duo's hil- arious escapades. Their songs, aimed at a Family-type audience, ranged from the hauntingly beautiful Shenandoah to the up-tempo country-western oldie, Moviu' On. It was their comedy routines and humorous songs, however, that proved most popular. Veterans of 15 years in the entertaining business, the Utah pairs' varied talents include writing for TV comedy shows and recording for Capital rec- ords. The numerous children pres- ent were not forgotten as the too clowned through a melody ol children's his. Their hilarious "Nightmare Theatre" and their rendition of "The World is Waiting for the Sunrise" (Les Paul and M a r y Ford would never recognize was topped only by "Big JOL" a side-splitting spoof of "Big Bad John" which spins the sor- rowful tale of a fat jogger. Sincere in their efforts for good clean family entertain- ment, the D's climaxed their performance with a moving, thought provoking final number. The fast-paced, light hearted family show was an overwhelm- ing success, with the audience looking for more when the pair had finished. The D's will be in Cardston tonight, concluding a tour of Alberta that also included Ed- monton, Calgary, Raymond and Taber. The Lethbridge concert was sponsored by the LDS Student Association. Of SENATE SUBMISSIONS The Senate of The University of Calgary will hold its regular winter meeting cm February 25, 1972. It is the duly of the Senate to enquire into any matter that might lend to enhance the useful- ness of the University. Individuals or groups are invited to moke written submissions. These will be studied by appropriate Senart committees prior to the meeting. Persons may appear before the Senate In suport of their submissions.

S. INSPECTION AND DEVELOPMENT DEPARTMENT for those single-parent families in order to remove them- selves from a welfare situation child-care centre is a phys- ical and psychological neces- sity. For people (mostly women) whose children are growing up and for the retired, the oppor- tunity to engage in Intellectual activities which can relieve boredom should be encouraged, she said. "Any person who is bored and who can find an 'Interest in life Is a better-person for that interest and persons who are tied down with young chil- dren, who are tired of biking In three-letter words, can be better mothers and wives when released from that Senator Snow said. "Family life could be enhanced. "A child-care centre is then, according to U of L philosophy, a necessity." She then submitted a pro- posal of a day-care centre "which could possibly be ini- tiated overnight." By advertising for students to submit their names, phone numbers and times they would be available for work in "a centre" in the existing univer- sity media, babysitters could be found. "These students might live in residence or be on campus for courses at certain times of the day and have time between she said. By charging a minimal baby- sitting fee of about a day for students (more for univer- sity s t u d e n t E "could earn money while in at- tendance at the university." Parents could provide the children with food or the pro- posed centre could charge additional fees for providing lunch. In concluding her argument for a babysitting service Sena- tor Snow said: "The opportunity for young children to interact at an early age with other children and with other adults is a valuable socializing experience which teaches early self-reliance and self-control. "A child-care centre estab- lished in the university would give toe opportunity for par- ents to be closer to their chil- dren and not separated by a distance of several miles. "If a situation arose where a parent was needed, it would be relatively simple to contact the parent. This would provide a greater security for the chil- dren too. "With the move to the West Campus, the need for a baby- sitting service is essential and urgent." Chaplain service A chaplain service may soon be available at the University of Lethbridge as result of a >rief presented to the univer- sity senate by the Lethbridge Ministerial Association. The brief, drafted by the va- rious religions and religious de- nominations serving this area, said chaplain service counsel- ing at the university will help meet student mental, spin- ual, social and emotional eeds. A chaplain service will "ben- fit in helping students in their 'hole academic the rief stated. Counselling ser- vice provided by chaplains would not be used as a means f pressuring university policy making authorities. Aiming primarily at the spir. tual well-being of the univer- ity community, the brief noted that students bring with them a variety of spiritual heritage. By introducing a chaplain ervice the university can pro- ride additional counselling sup- and assistance to people 'at difficult times in their lives." The ministerial association, n its brief, did not ask for of- ice space, but rather that an around-t h e-clock easily con- tacted service for students be endorsed. Admitting no religious coun- selling services were available at the university, U of L pres- ident Dr. Bill Beckel said that such a proposed service has "widespread support among students and faculty." The question of university chaplain service had also been discussed and supported at General Faculty Council meet- ings in the past, he said. The service would be pro- vided at no cost to the uni- versity, a Ministerial Associa- tion spokesman said.

J. D. Oviatt, U of L refMra, said the U of A agricuttura faculty accepts first year basic science students from ben but does not recognize any addi- tional courses. Commerce faculty urged for UofL A faculty of business admin- istration should be established at the University of Lethbridge, says the Lethbridge and Dis- trict Chartered Accountants Association. In brief presented to the Senate, William Lord, speaking on behalf of the association said, i course leading to a Bachelor nf Commerce degree should be established at the U of L. Such i course would provide "a source of Individuals with sound business education who could fill positions becoming available as result of the anticipated economic growth of southern Alberta." Students wishing to become chartered a c c o u n tants must possess a university degree which is recognized by the Uni- versity Of Alberta, Mr. Lord said. Without receiving "a concen- tration of business training" students are not prepared "to assume responsibilities com- mensurate with our expecta- he said. Because the U of L's phil- osophy is concerned with "the education of humane policy its graduates will have tittle knowledge of "the day life of the business world." A business world employer would not be able to anticipate productivity within "a relative- ly short period of time" from a U of L pad, be said. Mr. Lord said the univer- sity's General Faculty Council "seems to feel this broad edu- cation base will be more bene- ficial In the long run" than that of a commerce course such as offered at the University of Calgary. "A commerce course and a program of self-education can take care of the 'long run'. Senate Chancellor, Chief Judge Sherman Turcotte, said a commerce course at the uni- versity could also attract more students. He noted the increasing en- rolment figures in commerce courses and decreasing enrol- ments in other course: at Ca- nadian universities.
