Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 5, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta JO THE IFTHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, July 5, 1971 Engineering studies plan for U of L The University of faculty of arts and science has announced introduction this fall of a pre-engineering studies pro- gram which will permit stu- dents to study the first two years of the University of Al- berta's engineering program in Lethbridge. The student would be fully eligible to transfer t h e n to the U of A, or to another university which might accept the partial engineering studies. Completion of the specified pre professional curriculum will not guarantee admission to the U of A faculty of engineer- ing, since over-all academic per- formance is a critical factor. A student who has inquiries regarding the program should consult the U of L dean of arts and science, and also the U of A faculty of engineering. A required two-year course of studies with room for five optional courses has been estab- lished for trie program in con- sultation with the U of A.

William Wuttunee, counsel for Alberta Panel, said the com- pany is seeking payment from in band funds being held in trust by the department of Indian affairs in Ottawa. The action was brought against the band when Sarcee officials in April seized assets of the company which began oper- ations on the reserve earlier this year.

The goal of the two _ ex- univarsity students is to visit as many fire stations as possible from Chile to Fairbanks, Alasra. To date the pair have visited fire stations in 16 coun- tries. 35 states, and nine Cana- dian provinces, and have be- come fluent In English and French en route. The average speed of their vintage auto odessey has been 40 m.p.h. and the average gas consumption of the original six- cylinder engine is eight miles to the gallon. Many miles of then- trip have been boring, some have been frustrating and others have been exciting. In Columbia the car was shot at by bandits (the two bullet holes are still in the car) who wanted money. When the bandits discovered i there was no money to be had they gave the travellers and sent them hurredly on their way. In Southern California the an- cient car was hit from behind by a semi-trailer truck. One of the original four who started the trip was killed and another went back to Chile. Schmidlin and Betancourt were in hospital for two montrs and it cost to repair the car. Since leaving Chile in Oct. 1967 they have replaced 16 tires, had 92 flat tires and "blown the engine up" three times.

"We somehow managed to get to Winnipeg, but we had to my an axle from a scrap yard and have it machined to fit. "The best speed we could make with our bad engine was 10 m.p.h. and when we reach- ed Winnipeg we had the engine rebuilt for the third time.

Schmidlin and Betancourt said they both like Canada and Canadians, especially the girls. The two bachelors spent the winter in Montreal where they became engaged. From Lethbridge travel plans call for them to stop in Calgary, where they are to meet with Prime Minister Tru- deau, then on to Edmonton by way of Banff, through White- horse, North West Territories, and finally to Fairbanks, Alaska. From Fairbanks they plan to retrace their trip through Al- berta to visit the northwestern United States and return to Montreal to be married and settle in a less adventurous life somewhere in Canada. In all, that isn't a bad trek for a 1929 Dodge once a taxi- cab used by Schmidlin's father in Chile. The car had an odo- meter reading of miles at the start of the trip. By LARRY BENNETT Staff Writer Several months ago the de- partment of the attorney-gen- eral invited the Alberta Al- coholism and Drug Abuse Commission to explore the possibility of starting a coun- selling program in Lethbridge. Two such counselling pro- grams have met with great success in Edmonton and Cal- gary. The investigation resulted in the opening of a full-time coun- selling office in Lethbridge on Jane 1. The office is at 303 5th St. S, room C, of the Metoalf Building and is staffed by Bob Hubbard, a full-time counsel- lor. Bob Hubbard has had coun- selling experience in alcoholic rehabilitation programs at Bclmont and the Calgary Cor- rectional Institution as well as experience in Edmonton where ha often functioned as a relief officer for court-counselling personnel from the attorney- general's office. Hubbard also took an active part in the counselling ser vices of the Edmonton day clinic, where he worked main ly with the unemployed, per mancnt residents of the city usually single men and worn en. Hubbard's day starts at a.m. in the city police cells where he interviews the pris those who wis assistance with an alcohol o drug problem. He returns to his office at 1 a.m. and remains tbare until noon, when he travels to th Lethbridge Correctional Insti tution where he conducts fu ther interviews and give counsel to those who wish i The remainder of his day spent at the Lethbridge ja counselling inmates on an dividual basis. Hubbard said the progress the individual inmate counse ling program has been go and he hopes to augment tl program in the near futu with group sessions for bo discussion and inform ati about alcohol and drug pro lem iince the second week in ne, Hubbard has been in- ved in a court counselling ogram as well as his other ties. He has interviewed any persons charged with or alcohol related of- nses and accepted referrals om both the court and pro- tion department. Hubbard's counselling ser- ccs do not end when a pcr- n is released from jail. A may continue with his hsbilitatloji counselling as ng as he remains in Leth- idge and may continue lus tinselling program in many her Alberta cities if he oves. Many persons cteose to con- nue their rehabilitation after elease from jail by taking the -day counselling program at enwood a halfway house in In addition to his counselling ubbard recommends persons ith an alcoholic problem, vhether in or out of jail, join Alcoholics Anonymous. "Following any kind of treat- ment and therapy for alcohol a lasting recovery is fur r assured by contact will he said, "and patients are ncouraged to find a place lor hemselves in AA fellowship. "More and more persons ar jeginning to undergo treat- ment for said lubbard, "because they are earning alcoholisn? is not a disease suffered only by the ower classes. "Only 10 per cent of all prac- ising alcoholics come from ;kid row. "Many alcoholics are still 'unctioning in their vocational fields, although at lower levels of productivity. 'Education has removed the I stigma from the disease and nore and more persons "are ntering treatment at an ear- icr stage, thus treating the ill- ness before it reaches its hnmic phase. 'With the exception of the nitial withdrawal stage the i-eatment. of a person with Irog problems is the same as be treatment of the person rath alcohol problems. "The aim of any rehabilita- ive counselling is to get to the suurce of the problem which orced the person to drugs or said Hubbard. Persons seeking information, literature and counselling per- .aining to alcohol or drug jroblems are encouraged to write or phone Hubbard's of- fice.
