Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 30, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE IETHBRIDGE HERA1D Mdoy, July SO, 1971 Public participation ?ieeded Task force looks at population shift Hy HERB JOHNSON Staff Writer Alberta's Task Force on Ur- banization and the Future is being set up to study problems associated with urbanization. A focal point of the study is '.he rapid shift to urban from rural living. The abandoned farmhouse pictured above, for example, was built in the early 1920s by Ray Johnson and his family. Mr. Johnson broke the quarter secflon of land and farmed it until the early '60s. The land is still being fanned but as part of a larger opera- tion. Members of the family that grew UD in the farmhouse are now all urban dwellers, as are their sons and daughters. One of many abandoned farmhouses, this one is an ex- ample of a trend that is also affecting small tarns. A recent report by the Oldman River Re- An old farm house near Stirling a victim of urban migration. Liquor charges now on decline The number of cases of pub- lic intoxication in Lethbridge has declined sharply in the last several days as migrant beet workers return home, accord- Ing to Inspector Max Coupland of the city police. A mere five cases of public Intoxication were heard in Leth- bridge magistrate's court Thursday compared with al- most 15 a day several weeks ago. The new police commission was told Wednesday 355 per- sons were arrested in June for violations of the liquor act. Half of the arrests involved tran- sient workers. Meanwhile, the problem was being successfully countered on a second front as 17 native workers who had been unem- ployed in Lethbridge were placed in various agricultural jobs around the southern part ot the province. Albert Lapatac, a native court workers said tha job situ- ation had finally broken the middle of this week after being completely bleak prior to that. Mr. Lapatac said placing that number of workers at this time of the year is rare. More than Indians from Saskatchew- Autherized by Richard Barton Campaign Organization an were among the large num- bers of workers in the south this year. He said most of them don't like hanging around town but without a job they have no- where else to go. It is also easier to find a drink than food and lodging, he said. Mr. Lapatac predicted the number of liquor cases will con- tinue to drop in the next few days. Jaycees plan political forum Lethbridge Jaycees plan to sponsor an all-candidates fo- rum in the week preceding the provincial election. The forum, to be held Aug. 25 in the Yates Memorial Cen- tre, will enable candidates to present their platform and an- swer questions from the floor. The six candidates nom- inated from the two Lethbridge ridings have been invited, al- Firefighters revive woman Prompt action by Lethbridge!

The Lethbridge Labor Coun- cil is also considering sponsor- ing a forum, but no firm plans have been made. Aug. 30 is election day. Thomas on TV Cardston native Linda Lee Thomas, principal pianist for the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, will perform the theme from the movie Love Story Saturday at 10 p.m. on the CBC-TV's week- ly show The Performers. gional Planning Commission lists eight towns in southern Al- berta that had populations of more than 50 in 1961 that are cow below that mark. On a pfovincial level, only 4fi per cent of Alberta's popula- tion were urban dwellers in 1351. By 1970 the figure had risen to an estimated 72 per cent. Alberta's answer to how to study and solve the problems associated with this rapid pop- ulation shift is the Task Force on Urbanization and the Future. It was first proposed by Pre- mier Harry Strom in late 1968. Planning and initial organi- zation are now virtually com- plete and a publicity campaign is to start in the next few weeks. Because of the way the study is set up, publicity could well be a crucial factor in the suc- cess of the Task Force. According to Task Force planners, the approach taken will differ from the usual in that it will follow what is called "interest based planning." Un- der this procedure, once a prob- lem has been identified, inter- est groups within the commun- ity will work with researchers and planners to develop a re- sponse to the problem. An interest group is given a very wide definition volun- tary organizations, private cor- porations, government agencies or any other group with an in- terest in a specific area. An organization including a Task Force board, a director- ate, task committees and co- ordinators has been set up, but the structure still requires the active participation of the pub- lic. Petef Boothroyd, co-ordina- ting director, said the Task Force intends to seeks out groups who might become in- volved in the study. Two major concerns, he said, were to have problem areas defined and to get local interest groups to par- ticipate. Submissions can be made di- rectly to the Task Force or to the local municipal govern- ment. Planned as a three-year pro- ject, the study is to have re- ports issued continuously from the various groups involved, rather than one final report al the conclusion. GYROS REGISTRATION Mr. and Mrs. Bud Tye of Spokane, Washington are register- ed here for the District 8, Gyro International annual convention here this weekend by Mary Batting and Alma Lees, standing, both of Lethbridge.

En route Skretting was able to restore her breathing with mouth to mouth resuscitation and an oxygen mask. She was examined at LMH and released.

Keith Robin, LCC director of continuing education, welcomed the increases but noted "there are never enough grants to do what you'd like to do." According to college policy, the adult education program is operated on a break-even basis, Mr. Robin said. Thus, the in- fusion of additional money will allow services to be expanded somewhat. The extra money will most likely be used to expand into new and different programs. Al- ternatively, the college could offer existing courses at a cheaper rate or reduce the teacher-pupil ratio by offering more classes of the same course. Dr. Brian Staples, provin- cial co-ordinator of continuing education said, "The grants should facilitate provision of a wide variety of courses and help to keep costs to students within reason." Dr. Staples noted fees charged to adult students have increased substantially hi some oases in recent years. Mr. Robin said LCC has not made the fee increases that some institutions in other parts of Alberta have made. Local registrations in the adult courses have gone from in 1967 to in 1970.
