Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 23, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta School buildings are lifeblood' of the community they serve 23, 1972 THE IFTHBRItlGE HEBAID IS By RON CALDWELJ, Herald Start Writer The physical construction o! a school should allow it to lie the heart which pumps the lifeblood tlirough the arteries of the com- munity that It serves, says the Worth Commission Report on Educational Planning. In recommending that schools become a type of educational shopping mall, the commission suggests that future schools be planned to include such things as a health care unit, commun- ity hall, swimming pool and li- brary to be used by the entire community.

The commission also sees the possibility of community ori- inted businesses being located in schools. Space could be pro- on a lease basis to such Businesses as banks, food mar- tets, beauty salons and drug stores. Special provision might >e made for restaurants. "The incorporation of com- mercial enterprises into com- munity schools would do more to draw adults into the facilities on a regular basis. 'The renls paid could be an important source; ot revenue for school boards. Also, these close- at-hand commercial enterprises :ould be a ready source ot life experiences for the learners." There are three important ad- vantages that could result from such an integration: re- duced capital and operating costs, improved community at- titudes toward schooling and in- creased use of the total ser- vices approach to meet human needs. Day care centres should also be an Integral part of schools, says the commission report. "Historically, we have been willing to spend enormous sums on athletic facilities, used prin- cipally by men, but have re- coiled at the thought pi making much less costly services avail- ible to aid women in their pur- suit o[ greater self-fulfillment." Post secondary institutions iibould also get into the act and open themselves up to the broader community. Campuses of colleges and uni- versities could be used as sum- mer vacation camps, particular- ly for exceptional and disad- vantaged children and youths. "Such programs would have the benefit of making higher ed- .ication institutions familiar to many persons who might other- wise never come to know them." NOW!

Lack of trucks new barley woe By RIC SW1HAHT Herald Staff Writer A lack of trucks is hamper- ing the commercial movement of barley to the Canadian gov- ernment elevators in Saska- toon and Moose Jaw, Sask. The Canadian wheat board ordered 1.4 million bushels be moved from, surrounding dis- tricts to the two terminal ele valors to be in export position to facilitate grain sales. During the first three weeks of the program, bush- els were moved into position. Kent Jesperson, special as- sistant to federal Agriculture Minister Bud Olson, said in an interview that as many as 18 trucks are being used in Moose move the barley out of the ter minal already. There were 12 hopper cars wliich left Saska toon during the week startin June 5 and 270 hopper oars th following week. About 125 hopper cars wer ordered out of Moose Jaw th week. All the grain will be g ing to Thunder Bay, Ont. The main problem to dat said Mr. Jesperson, is the limi ed number of trucks availah and the inability of the Countr elevators to load more In a eight hours per day. "When these two problen are resolved, there is no dou that our two terminals cou easily handle bushels FOUR BEAUTIFUL VOLUMES AT ONE LOW PRICE Here in one beautifully illustrated library set of over 1600 pages (much of the content in full colour) is the most comprehensive record of Alberta Wildlife to date.

Mr. Jesperson said heavy rainfall in the Moose Jaw area during the first week of the pro- gram resulted In a significant reduction in the volume of grain moved. At other times, excessive heat caused some mechanical problems with the trucks. Regular producers' trucks of- len caused some delays for the commercial truckers at the ter- minal elevators white waiting for loads to. be cleaned. Eleva- tor agents were also sometimes busy with fertilizer and chem- ical sales. The maximum distance for the movement was set at 70 miles, but due to a lack of suf- ficient amounts of barley within this radius, the area was en- larged to a distance of 120 miles from the terminal eleva- tor. Some problems occurred when truckers were unable 10 get to the elevator before it closed. The hours of operation for the elevator are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and there was some diffi- culty getting agents to load af- ter quitting time. He said it appears that the agents are willing to work long- er hours as long as the space situation is critical. The Canadian wheat board has initiated a program to feed barley per he sai Disturbance costs man Ben Van Wieren, 4301 3rd i 'C.

"We should plan all our build- ups to be rearrange able >y lowering the degree of per- manence in initial he report says. "To further maximize flexi- more use ought to be made of relocatable buildings." If a certain proportion of classroom space is relocatable, hey can be moved to various ocations as the need arises. The commission suggests that, n the near future, a definite jossibility for classrooms in Al- jerta is "an inflatable plastic air-suppport structure which is Decoming increasingly sophisti- cated." They cost from one-third to one-fifth as much as convention- al buildings providing the same space, are durable and easily moved. "Soon this type of structure can be seriously considered as a temporary space alternativi by Alberta's institutions f o schooling." The commission was critical of present classroom construe tion, staling that "most of them have been standard boxes con nected like railway coaches their interiors often no more attractive and sometimes m less confining." and again shortly after Each time the RCMP were responding to complaints of a loud party in progress at the young men's home. During the second visit about five RCMP arrived in three cars, searched for drugs and seized several hundred dollars worth of stereo and sound equipment. An RCMP spokesman said the sound equipment had been seized because it had "been part o[ the offence of causing a disturbance." "We seized the equipment so it could be entered in evidence in the event Mr. Van Wieren pleaded not he said. Mr. Van Wieren paid the fine and the sound equipment has been returned. An RCMP spokesman said mid- during the height of the party as many as 40 persons had Involved, but during the search and seizure only 10 per- sons had been in the house.
