Geography students on Mexico field trip Ten University of Lethbridge students recently returned from the 'big daddy' of all field trips over two weeks of travel in Mexico which brought lessons learned in past geography classes vividly to life. Organized by the U of L Geography Club, the trip took the 10 students and geography professor Frank Jankunis throughout northern and central Mexico at a brisk pace, juxtaposing barren desert scenes with lush agricultural areas. Geography Club president Craig Robertson of Lethbridge says the trip was an unqualified success because it showed the students none of whom had travelled in Mexico before a very different culture from their own and made them more appreciative of a different lifestyle. "The single greatest thing about the trip was that it Get in touch with Canada World Youth Project assists student foreign exchange By ARLENE GREER OTTAWA (CP) young Canadians: If you want an all expense paid chance to exchange living conditions with foreign young people, get in touch with Canada World Youth. But be prepared to spend close to a year living in fairly rough situations, working on projects here and abroad. Canada World Youth was formed with federal financing early in 1972. By September of that year 240 Canadians had QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Cwtiffed DwiUI Capitol Furniture Bldfl- PHONE: 328-7684 been selected to work m live countries, most of them underdeveloped, on projects that included building or repairing community buildings, agricultural and reforestation programs and various types of food, wood and fish co operatives. They were divided into groups of 10. Assisted by group leaders, they spent three months learning the culture and language of the country to which they were assigned, they also worked on projects in various parts of Canada to learn co-operative living and the basic skills they would need in the exchange countries. They then spent about 4Vz months living and working in one of five foreign countries, followed by another 4Vz months with foreign young people working on projects in Canada In 1973-74 the number of participating countries increased to 11. The three month training period was cut to one month but other aspects of the program remained much the same. Pierre Bourdon, executive director of Canada World Youth, hopes changes will be made.

Margaret Knittl, 51, who takes over as dean of Atkinson College next year, says that at Now Two Stores To Servo You Better J MEN'S WEAR LTD. NOW OPEN at 331 -5th Street South Watch for our Grand Opening The Week of June 10th other universities in the past, part time students have tended to be shunted off on to the periphery of the academic world. Atkinson College, set up 13 years ago to make part-time students the central concern of the college, holds all its courses at night. Prof. Knittl, currently chairman of the college's history department, says small classes and personal contact between teachers and students are crucial to ensuring that standards of academic excellence expected of full time students also apply to part time students.

We'd gone on geography -class field trips before in the Lethbridge area, but we tended to see the same things over and over says Mr. Robertson. "In Mexico we saw exciting examples of land formations and cultural developments we had only read about before. You can sit in a classroom and discuss geography all day, but actually seeing it for yourself is an unforgetable lesson." He says all the students who participated in the trip felt it was a worthwhile learning experience. "We're hoping the Geography Club can sponsor an extensive trip to other areas, on an annual says Mr. Robertson. Travelling in a U of L van and camping along the way, the students shared costs for gas and accommodation, but paid for their meals individually. Mr. Robertson The Herald Youth Israel's kibbutz life captivates LCI graduate participants, he said during a recent Ottawa conference to review international youth exchange programs. Delegates from 20 countries attended. As it is now, participants in the programs know that "even if the crops are bad, there will be meat for them on the Mr. Bourdon said. "We shouldn't over protect them." Participants' should be encouraged to take more responsibility for their living conditions, said Mr. Bourdon, a member of a federal committee that recommended establishing Canada World Youth. He also said he hopes Canada World Youth's five regional offices will establish greater contact with small communities across the country to learn how exchange programs participants can best serve the communities they temporarily live in. There should be greater contact also with schools and universities to encourage them to think of Canada World Youth programs as a supplementary source of education. Participants should be allowed to count their experience abroad as credit towards college diplomas or university degrees. Canada World Youth receives million a year from the secretary of state's department to finance about 85 per cent of the exchange program's costs. Participating foreign countries pay the rest so there are no expenses for young people selected. Applicants are first chosen to represent a cross section of young Canadians from different regions, social classes, income groups and educational and language backgrounds. Thev must be between 16 and 20. Before a final selection is made, applicants are interviewed to measure their adaptability to group living in a forpign country. Application forms for the exchange programs are available
