MOST OF IT'S FLAT The area of the city is acres, of which 91 acres is water, 251 acres are parks and playgrounds. were set up by a large conting- ent of resource people repre- senting occupations ranging from the Canadian Armed Forces to the medical profes- sion. But the resource people and teachers on hand vastly out- numbered the students. And the majority of students on hand wero elementary school youngsters. A communication problem within the school's own ad- ministration seemed to be at the core of the disaster. Evidently the careers day was declared a holiday and the bus drivers took the day off. This left the students norm- ally bused to school, stranded at their homes. In addition, school principals in Fort Macleod and Cardston rejected invitations to allow Indian students attending those schools to school hours. Numerous other minor prob- lems beset the effort, leaving its organizers visibly dis- heartened and embarrassed. Those youngsters who did at- tend, happily grabbed onto any literature available. A few parents were also in attendance. The exhibitors' comments, In hallway discussions ranged from: "I knew to "The timing was bad but it will be belter the next time." Resource people from as dis- tant as Edmonton were on hand.

Southern Alberta location sought for ivinter games On the advice of H o r s t Schmid, provincial minister of culture, youth and recreation, the city has sent a letter of in- tent to apply for the 1975 Winter Games to Edmonton. Mr. Schmid told local offi- cials in the city Wednesday the federal government looks for areas such as southern Alberta, which can co-operate on a re- gional basis, as the site for the Winter Games. He suggested the city would not have as much of a chance of gelling the games if it applied alone as it would have applying as the centre for a regional project. Letters of intent have been received by the province from Grande Prairie and a group in Pinche'r Creek and the Crows- nest Pass, Mr. Schmid said. Local community services director Bob Bartlelt said he would be approacliing the Crowsnest Pass group to see about a co-operative effort for a games application. Mr. Schmid was in southern Alberta to sec first hand the various cultural, recreational and youth programs offered in this part of the province. In Lethbridge, Mr. Schmlc seemed most Impressed with Golden Mile Drop-in Centre for senior citizens and made a note to have Premier Lougheed vis it the centre when he is in the city Sept. 23.

Technological successes have ed to even more complex prob- ems than existed before, he old delegates attending the tart of a three-day Pacific West Conference on ligher Education at the Uni- 'crsity of Lethbridge. Citing numerous reasons for declining public respect for im- versifies and colleges, Dr. Hodgkinson claimed "educa- Jonal institutions govern them- selves poorly." Those charges however, wero contested by conference dele- gates which include participa- .ing universities and colleges from the Canadian and Ameri- can Pacific northwest region, lie said the professional training of post-secondary tea- chers makes them unsuitable for governing or solving the problems of ordinary people. In addition, faculty members do not sec post-secondary ad- ministrators as their superiors a reason student radicals arc now directing attacks against elected officials. "Most decisions are made at the slate for faculty depart- ment he said. These are among "Ihe fast- est-growing" type of institutions on the continent and provide invaluable service to society. Attacking the degree and grading system, he said neither is relevant to "human perfor- mance." They are not functional with what society wants because no performance guarantee is giv- en alter graduation. .The earning gap between col- lege and non-college working people is closing, so the tradi- tional concept of a degree earn- ing ils holder more money is collapsing. As well, higher education does not necessarily i-uijrusent a definite job any longer, he said. Through privately-operated schools not currently accredit- ed, "certain talents can be de- veloped" more than in the ex- isting accredited core of post secondary schools. He charged that universities provide programs which are "the causing costly and unnecessary duplication. Taking a stab at rapid cam- pus growth which produced "distortion and drop in mor- he said many campus ad- ministrators "act like realty investors" who are incapable of saying "no." Dr. Hodgkinson said there will be better colleges and un- iversities in the future, Instead of more, based on the slow- down in campus growth. He predicted an actual de- cline in enrolment by 1980. This mil produce increased public support, he said. Continuing his blast at the campus establishment, he said governments are concerned with Uie high drop-out rate. American studies show that, on an over-all average, univer- sity and college drop-outs have better grade-point averages than those who remained. This shows something is wrong with the existing system, he claimed. Students should be allowed to select the skills they wish to learn and then "prove their worth" before being accredited for their accomplishments. Dr. Hodgkinson said, a better-than-average result could be produced through the new program method. Tiie job of universities Is to "help the student integrate or familiarize himself with the so- cial rigors of the the world." Students should not be ready- made cogs fitting into jobs but slwuld develop new job and so- cial techniques, he concluded. FERGUSON PAINT LTD.

RAYMOND, ALBERTA PHONE 752-3587 Flooding danger ended in district Lack of rain has excused southern Alberta from tho flooding that has recently hit parts of British Columbia and the United States. Apart from a few wet base- ments for short periods in the past two weeks in buildings in the Coleman-Blairmore district, high water in the Oldman River watershed has not caused prob- lems. Water levels, peaked two weeks ago and have been steadily declining, said Glen Steed, hydrology officer in the Alberta water resources office In Lethbridge today. The Oldman River flow at Lethbridge was cubic feet per second, compared wilh the Gait museum now open The Sir Alexander Gait Mu- seum, located in the old Gait hospital building at the west end of 5th Ave, S., is now open to tourists and residents of Lcthbridge. The museum contains anti- ques and collections portraying the history of southern Alber- ta. It will be open Tuesdays and Thursdays from Id a.m. to 9 p.m.; on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; on Sundays and holi- days from 1 to 5 p.m. It will be closed Mondays. Tiie museum will shut ils doors Sept. 4. high flow of c.f.s. on June 2, he said. Severe flooding of some rivers in B.C. and the United States resulted from heavy warm rain on snow and wet ground. Mr. Steed said white there has been heavy snow this win- ter In the Crowsnest Pass, the absence of rain has kept water levels below the danger point. The Oldman is carrying a heavy load of silt, but water restrictions in the city have avoided overloading of water- intake filters, so that dirt not seeped into the domestic water supply. Flows today In the Oldman at Brocket, c.f.s. and at Milk River, 480 c.f.s. were de- scribed as about normal for this time of year. All water levels were stead- ily decreasing and expected to stabilize at normal summer flows by the end oi this month More money for library? The two-mill b'mit set on li- brary spending may be elim- inated, Horst Schmid, provin- cial minister of ciillure, youlh and recreation told The Herald Wednesday. Mr. Schmid said a study is being conducted in various li- bralries throughout the prov- ince. The conclusions of that study could result in tabling a bill at the fall sitting of the leg- islature to allow local library boards and city councils to de- termine their own spending rates for library facilities.
