Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 10, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THE LETKBRIDGE HERAID Saturday, June 10, 1972- Trades training may change The whole concept of trades training at community colleges may be in for an aboul-iacc, says Dr. C. D. Stewart, presi- dent of Lclhbridge Community College. He said anyone learning a new trade should undergo a pe- riod of apprenticeship training first and this should be followed by the scholastic aspect. In some cases, the academic seg- ment should be scrapped alto- gether. "If a person comes here to learn welding, he doesn't want to study English and sociology, he wants to be a said Dr. Stewart. "Canada Manpower is spend- half of its dollars on this type of tiling right now. If we fail to recognize the shift, we could be in serious trouble. "If continue in our present way, the enrolment (it this col- lege in 10 years could be half what it is now." Dr. Stewart said the success of the provincial government's Priority Employment Program proved that people "want more emphasis on the practical as- pect of job training. They don't want any extras." THOSE WERE THE DAYS Retired police inspector Albert Hackett (right) relates some of the experience he had during nearly 32 years in the Lethbridge city police department to young Constable!

By CATHY RETI Herald Staff Writer Parking meters seem to spark a bit of con- troversy every now and again. It's not the parking meter's fault that it gets rubbed the wrong way with slanderous words some- times. Alt it does is sit on the sidewalk day after day eating the pennies that are compulsory for the business people and customers to put in if they park in front of it. The controversy comes from those people who feel that parking meters are a pain in the neck. Almost every driver has had the annoyance of running up to his car a few minutes too late and discovering that a little white piece of paper is sit- ting on his windshield, telling him he now owes tJie sum of a dollar or two, in cash or money order, payable to the Chief of Police. Because people usually get involved in what they're doing, they forget about their poor cars, and soon find themselves with a At The Herald, alarm clocks are set to ring ev- ery second hour, so that the workers can rush out and deposit another dime. But what about the people who are shopping in stores, frantically looking for something they want? They finally discover what they are searching for, and forget about the meter waiting for them outside. Do you suppose wrist watches with bells to ring every hour should be invented? At present parking meters seem to be only in the major business areas. But what about the future? Imagine that you're a young man with a beauti- ful girl friend. You decide to go out to Henderson Lake for a while to get away from the hustle and the bustle of the busy streets. But stop! Before you turn your attention to the girl sitting beside you, you must jump out of your car, and deposit your money in the meter sitting in front of you. Yes, parking meters are a pain. And they are an annoyance. And they probably do hear a few cuss words. But then, people are naturally lazy, and like to park nearest to the place they are going, so they don't have to walk so far. Still there is always the question of why the park- ing meters? Do you suppose it is because the city is in des- perate need of money? Show Dad you care on his Day!

Family living education ,600 OFY project is By CATHY RETI Herald Staff Writer Life Education, an Op- portunities for Youth project involving six persons, is con- cerned mostly with psychologi- cal aspects pertaining to sexual subjects. Judy Burgess, one of the pro- ject members, said the group likes to sit down with young people and just talk about al- most any type of problem. The group first started its project at the old Central School In March. It wasn't an OFY project then, but several young people on the south side were getting quite involved In discussions, Judy said. Eut since the school has been shut down, as a drop-in centre, and since the group now is op- erating under an OFY grant, it has moved its discussions to the Adams Ice Centre. Here, one or two members of the group hold nightly talk sessions with inter- ested young people. "We're having difficulty get- ting a relationship started with said Judy. The subject the project Is dealing with tends to make people cautious." She said, however, that more I QUALITY DENTURE I CLINIC I EDDY DIETRICH I Certified Meehonle I Capitol Bldf, BMI PHONE 328-7684M young people are becoming in- terested and are starting to come to the discussions. The project, Judy added, seems to to be well-known and 'has re- ceived "a lot" of co-operation from the city. Judy said if the group ever runs into problems it can't han- dle, they will be turned over to doctors, counsellors and psychi- atrists who have volunteered their assistance. Judy, who is finishing her training as a nurse at the Gait School of Nursing, said the rest of the members of the group have been taking training that help them in the work they are City man on TB executive J.

Two are nurses, two have helped at the Dorothy Gooder School, and one has ob- tained a degree in sociology. At present, the group just talks to students informally. But it plans to speak to organ- ized groups such as scouts anrj CG1T, and is going to approach church groups to have organiz- ed discussions with young peo- ple there. Judy said the group would also like to get parents and their children together in groups for discussions. She sale this will need to be well-organ- ized and no definite plans have been made.
