Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 5, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THE IETHBRIDCE HERALD Thursday, Julv 5, 1973 Local students attend international college By ED RYAN Kate Andrews High School For two former students of Kate Andrews High School, Coaldale the past academic year has been most unusual and unique in that they have travelled the world in search of an education of international dimensions. Ken Slemko, son cf Mr. and Mrs. Steve Slemko of Coaldale and Phillip Malkas, son of Mr. and Mrs. Egan Malkas of Mc- Nally, were among 47 students specially selected from 11 dif- ferent countries to undertake a program of international stud- ies at Dag Hammerskjold Col- lege, Columbia, Maryland. Ken and Phillip were the only two Canadians selected for the col- lege's first year of operation. The college was named after Hammarskjold because it as- pires to the type cf internation- alism that the late Secretary- General of the United Nations represented. It will eventually become a 1500-student institu- tion that will represent nation- alities from around the world. The design of the college is based on three fundamental convictions: "all men are alike; some men are alike; each man is different." During the first year of the college's operation, there was no campus as such. It operated out of a cluster of town houses used as student residences, and an old manor stone house that served as a classroom, admin- istration building and dining hall. During this year's program at Dag Hammarskjold, students spent the fall semester at Col- umbia studying programs in such fields .as urban affairs and international economics. They heard lectures from such world- famous personalities as Mar- garet Mead, Norman Cousins and Buckminster Fuller. Then in January they spent a month at the United Nations in New York for a first-hand look and study of the various functions U.N. and agencies of the Following this, the students had a choice of several coun- Accent on tries they could visit to contin ue then- studies in greater depth. Phillip chose to go t Paris, France as well as Addi Ababa, Ethiopia and Nairob Kenya. Ken chose to remain in Eur ope and visited Pairs, France Geneva, Switzerland and Vien na, Austria. While in these coun Yon Hi Park recommended in Fraser Valley B.C. (CP) Two outdoor groups and sever- al University of British Co- lumbia post-graduate have combined to recommend creation of a provincial park about 20 miles southeast of this Frassr Val- ley city. The park would provide a vast recreational area of mountains, lakes and forest within a drive of Vancouver. It would also sava some virgin stands of Douglas fir, hemlock and cedar from further logging. The southern boundary' of the proposed park would run along the B.C.-Washingtoa border and adjoin the North Cascades National Park of the United States. The proposal for creation of the park was made by mem- bers of the B.C. Mountaineer- Hitch-hiking film planned for schools and television TORONTO (CP) For the hitch-hiker, Canada's roads hold 'little but terror and horror, say many thumbers from Toronto. This view has been over- whelmingly expressed since a film company advertised for ex- and local hitch-hikers here. The company plans to make an edu- cational film about hitch-hiking to be distributed among schools and screened on television. So far, more than 70 letters have been released and at least 90 per cent tell of how adven- turous youngsters have faced sexual attacks, beatings, drunk and reckless drivers and threats of all kinds. The film will be based on the letters whose writers will not be identified by the film makers, Summerhill Productions, a new- ly-formed Toronto group. Attacks with broken bottles, sexual assaults on 13-year-old girls and several nightmare rides through downtown Toronto at breakneck speeds are a few of the experiences related by the writers. Another tells of a motorist who pulled up without a stitd5 of clothing. While the film is being made partly in response to a recent coroner's jury recommendation for "a vigorous program of edu- cation on the hitch-hiking Summerbill Productions have run up against a stone wail in seeking financial assist- ance for the movie. Their plea for has turned down by the guidance branch of the provincial minis- try of education, the youth and recreation section of the com- munity and social services min- istry and the youth secretariat, an extension of the premier's of- fice.

A brief was prepared by Jim Vickerson, graduate stu- dent of geography, Michael Feller, graduate student of forestry, and Ken Farquhar- son, Sierra Club director. TERRAIN VARIED Nucleus .of the park would be mountain-ringed Chilliwack Lake which has 13 miles of shoreline and reaches almost to the U.S. border. The park would cover the Chilliwack basin. The brief said it has many small lakes and streams, a variety of land forms from valley bottoms to mountain peaks, alpine mea- dows with rare plants, and an extensive network of trails built by outdoors clubs and the forest service. "There is only one major road into the area so access could be easily the brief said. "It receives less snow in winter and has warmer tem- peratures in summer than Garibaldi (80 miles north of Vancouver) and Manning (150 miles east of Vancouver) parks. Consequently, the al- pine meadows could be visited both earlier and later than in other parks." More anglers catch steelhead in the lower Chilli- wack River than in any river in B.C., said the brtef. The basin also has trout and several major runs of com- mercial salmon. PHASE OUT LOGGING The brief conceded that an immediate halt to all logging in the area may cause undue hardship for some of the peo- ple and companies involved. It suggested limited logging for some years in the valleys with the least recreational value. "The small acreage of mer- chantable trees means that, if logging continues at its present rate, the entire Cana- dian part of this basin will be logged out within a few years."

Living accommodations at Dag Hammarskjold College were arranged deliberately 10 mix students of different na- tionalities with each other. Oc- casionally, this mixing of stu- dents of widely differing back- grounds brought some friction. Japanese students, for ex- ample, tended to be neat and insisted on tidier quarters the Americans. At one point, a Japanese woman student be- came quite offended when an American visitor put his feet on the dining room table. "Sure, there were said Ken. "Our values differed so much there had to be. But there was no chance to run away so we had to deal with each other. You learned not to take too many things for grant- ed." Ken went on, "one of my most valuable experiences came from staying with a Jap- anese student whose father was one of Japan's leading politi- cians. He was a very knowledge- able young man and I got an inner view of Japanese politics. It was something that I never could have got from reading books." "Something that struck me when I returned to Canada was the different outlook between Canadian and American stu- Ken said. 'Canadian students talk about their future goals and plans with a great deal of op- imism. Not so the Americans, at least not those I met. They seem so dispirited and despon- dent. I'm not sure but it prob- ably had a lot to do with tin United States' involvement in Vietnam." Of his travels in Europe, Ken said, "You could always recog- nize the Canadians in Europe jy the Canadian flags they car- ried or wore. It really amused he Europeans who couldn't seem to understand why Can- adians always carried their flags around with Both Ken and Phillip are ormer scholarship winners at ie university and plan to re- turn this fan to continue their studies, after a year's leave of absence to attend Dag Ham- merskjold.

Thoroqood, CP Air customer service supervisor. By ALLAN HARTLEY OTTAWA (CP) There was a time when the most un- kind thing you could say about a Boy Scout was that" fie wore short pants. The scouts now can wear long trousers but critics have gone beyond bony knees, and the scouts, in their be prepared tradition, are trying to update their image, 1 Critics say the old knot- tying, living off the land, fron- tier-type programs the scouts are noted for have little rele- vance in modern urban soci- ety. But a spokesman at notional scout headquarters in Ottawa said the association, which has members in nine prov- inces, is meeting this chal- lenge by evolving new pro- grams to meet the changing needs of society. The national organization has held meetings with var- ious scout councils to work out specialized programs for various areas of the country. ADMIT GIRLS Pierre Dionne, recently of L'Association des Scouts du Canada, which represents Canada's French-speaking scoots, said after the annual meeting of the French asso- ciation in May that member- ship in scouting organizations should be increased and par- ticipation prolonged. "Right now, the average length of membership is only 2% he said. "Tying knots, canoeing and climbing hills aren't the im- portant said Mr. Dionne. "What's really impor- tant is the progress of every kid at his own level of devel- opment.'' The national boy scouts have introduced new pro- grams in an effort to increase their base of support, includ- ing girl members. A new Beaver program for boys five to seven years old was introduced on a four-year trial basis in 1972. There have been trial pro- grams for scouting organiza- tions in cities like Winnipeg end Toronto that cater to their urban environment. "It involves such simple things as getting them to places in the city where they have never been said a scout spokesman. WORKS WITH ITALIANS In Toronto, a scout troop has been operating among Italian boys with an Italian- speaking troop leader. The Rover program, for youths 17 to 23, has been ex- panded to include girls. Al- though an experimental move, the spokesman said it will probably be a permanent facet of the Rovers. "Those crews that have been co-educational have en- joyed it and those that haven't have not missed he said.
