The meeting had been call- ed to give councillors an op- portunity to vote on the ex- propriation of 6.09 acres of land owned by Jane Whipple five miles north of Fort Mac- leod. The well has been used extensively by members of the North Macleod Water Haulers Co operative, and Mrs. Whipple is accused of cutting the handle off the well valve to prevent use of the water. Mrs. Whipple's attorney re- quested the adjournment so that more information could be gathered. If councillors vote in favor of the expropri- ation, the district will offer Mrs. Whipple for the land. R. R. Hartfelder, treasur- er of the municipal district, says that if Mrs. Whipple re- fuses the offer, the issue will go to the Surface Rights Board for a hearing to de- cide on the value of the land. Members of the water haul- ing co-operative are in des- perate need of the water, says Mr. Hartfelder, and other supplies nearby are inade- quate. Plans nearly set Wrecks make way for new city park Indian affairs halts LCC course By JIM GRANT Herald Staff Writer The native social counsel- ling course at the Lethbridge Community College has been cancelled by its sponsor the department of Indian and northern affairs. The 32-week counselling course was designed for na- tive people to train as assis- tants for professional social counselors in schools where the majority or large minor- ity of students are Indian. The Manitoba region of the department of Indian af- fairs decided to secure equi- valent training in Manitoba for the students it sponsored at the college and the Alber- ta region withdrew its spon- sorship because most of its potential students have regis- tered at the University of Calgary. Potential Alberta students for the college course were referred to the university pro- gram because upon graduat- ing they would be more qual- ified and more likely to ob- tain employment, says a vo- cational counsellor with the Sportsplex tender to be awarded The next major Sportsplex tender for reinforced con- crete work is to be award- ed Wednesday at a meeting of the Sportsplex Develop- ment Committee. Tenders let so far on the million arena project have in- cluded excavation work now nearly complete and the struc- tural steel contract award- ed to Dom Bridge Co. of Cal- gary at MOVING? OWEN AGENTS FOR ALLIED VAN LINES department of Indian affairs. Chuck Andrews says the course wasn't successful in producing Alberta graduates because the screening of stu- dents was lax. Most of the students ac- cepted for the course Alberta did not have the edu- cational background neces- sary to be to compre- hend a complex college course or they weren't suit- ed for the type of work the course was training them for, he said. The class of 29 students produced two Alberta, 10 Manitoba, one Toronto and three Nigeria student gradu- ates. All the Manitoba and Niger- ia graduates received em- ployment following the com- pletion of the course, but all other graduates were still lookinp for employment. About 40 cent of the stu- dents enrolled were from Al- berta. The course was established at the college at the depart- ment of Indian affairs' re- quest and the screening of the students was handled by the department rather thai? the college. Doug Alston, director of liberal education at the col- lege, says it is the fundamen- tal policy of the college to offer programs at the re- quest of the community. Courses sponsored through the department of education are researched and program- med by the college, but courses sponsored by another source are designed to satis- fy the requirements of the sponsor, he says. Mr. Andrews says it is dif- ficult for graduates of a one- year course to find employ- ment in the social counselling field when they are compet- ing with a surplus of gradu- ates from Alberta's universi- ties and the two-year coun- selling courses at the Grant MacEwan Community Col- lege in Edmonton and Mount Royal College in Calgary. As a result one-year course graduates are third in line when it comes to job hunt- ing, he suggests. Mr. Alston says the Alberta students were warned at the commencement of the course that employment possibilities in Alberta for graduates of the counsellor training course were not too good. It was a very good and suc- cessful program and the col- elge is disappointed the de- partment of Indian affairs chose not to continue it, he says.

OFY grant Handicraft project on the move By JOANNA MORGAN Herald Staff Writer Children bored by the pros- pects of an endless summer, house wives with short amounts of spare time, hos- pital shut-ins and the inmates at the local jail can all bene- fit from a new Opportunities For Youth project in Leth- bridge. The federal government has funded Handicrafts In- corporated with a grant of to enable seven uni- versity students and four high school students to teach crafts. Free classes run weekdays at the Civic Ice Centre from 10 a.m. to noon and from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m. Space for the OFY operation has been donated by city hall. Children between the ages of 8 and 13, as well as inter- ested adults are eligible for the classes. The advantage of the pro- gram is its flexibility say the OPY instructors, who have university and high school art courses as their qualifications. On a casual, drop-in basis, instruction can be taken in batik, weaving, silk-screening, ceramics, macrame, sketch- ing, water-dolours, and lea- ther-work. This arrangement opens the project up to those who cannot usually afford the BERGMAN'S FLOOR COVERINGS Custom Installoticmj Ph. 2716 12 Ave. S.

It allows ex- perimentation with different arts. Materials are free unless students elect to try an elab- orate project. A charge will then be made for supplies. Cheryl Wingfield is one of four project members who worked on a similar OFY program last year, Lifetime Inspiration, operating from the Adams Ice Centre. That teaching program was sufficiently successful, she said, "the hospital approach- ed us to bring it Handicrafts Incorporated plans this summer to go out all over Lethbridge. They will teach crafts to the patients in the psychiatric and pedi- atric wards of the Leth- bridge Municipal Hospital, at Sifton House, the city's foster home for children, and in the Lethbridge Correctional Insti- tute. Don Atwood, recreational therapist at the correctional institute, explains that the OFY students "definitely" could be of use at the jail. The crafts program or in- mates, who earn both the time and the money for these activities while inside, is usu- ally supplemented by outdoor recreation in the summer months. A lack of space in- side the jail, plus a dearth of teaching personnel means that a real interest in handi- work has to be thwarted. Inmates have the use of the jail gym for craft work only three times a week for 2% hour periods. Some work can be done in cells during the evening and on weekends. Mr. Atwood said the OFY members have the necessary experience and materials to extend the current jail pro- gram which now encompass- es leather and bead work, painting and costume mak- ing. "I'm not skilled in every craft." said Mr. Atwood. "There's a number here in- terested in pttery. The OFY have a wheel we don't have the money for it." The OFY project has ne- gotiated the use of the kiln at the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute to fire their ceramic work. The jail's recreational in- structor saw little likelihood that the OFY students would have difficulty working with inmates. "The fellows in here are not every- body Mr. Atwood said, "They can control themselves well." County students begin summer holiday freedom It's no more pencils, no more books for County of Lethbridge school students who finished their terms Friday.

Chick Surge, county school superintendent, said the 162% teachers in the county's 16 schools (including four high schools) were also lef off for the summer Friday. AVhile the Coalhurst High School is devoid of teachers and students a new library, infirmary and storage space will be added. Construction is slated for completion early in the fall, soon after students return to school. E. S. P. FOX Certified Dental Mechanic FOX (Leth.) DENTAL LAB LTD. 204 Medical Dental lldg.

The move is that of Mar- shall Auto Wreckers Ltd. from its coulee top site at 308 2nd St. S. purchased by the city, to Highway 3 and Sunnyside Rd. in the County of Lethbridge about two miles east erf the city. City Manager Tom Nutting said Friday all the necessary approvals have been received except for department of highway permits which are expected by Marshall's next week. Marshall manager John Babick said the firm will move as soon as it is able to because of the difficulty of operating from two locations. The firm has operated a storage yard behind eight foot fences at its new loca- tion for about three years and will now erect an office and retail building there. Under the agreement with the city Marshall Auto can move as many of its junked vehicles as it wants and the city will have to dispose of the rest, but Mr. Nutting says that win be no problem and a minimal part of the total cost of the deal. Mr. Babick said the firm will likely move just its most modem cars and leave the balance of the estimated rusting bodies be- hind. Mr. Nutting said the cars would all be gone by the end of this year and construction of the park would begin in 1974 along with the Woodward development. He added that fill would be trucked in from construction of the eastern approaches of the new bridge to the west side slated to begin in Sep- tember for the Woodwards parking lot on the coulee land just south of the wrecking yard. Indications are some of the junked autos may also be used as fill. "Squashed and flattened by a tractor they'd make as good fill as said Mr. Babik. "There's a lot of cars un- der 2nd he said. "It was all coulee when we first moved there." At one time the firm wanted to burn all its old cars and sell them to a scrap steel baler but environment depart- ment regulations put a quick bait to that idea. The only other scrap dis- posal alternative would be to ship them to the auto shred- der in Calgary which separ- ates the metal from the use- less parts by using a big mag- net but transportation costs make the relatively marginal operation impractical, Mr. Babik said. Before the firm could move to its new location it had to get approvals from the coun- ty, provincial planning board and highways department in- volving such things as rezon- ing permits, and a retail sales permit. mayor guilty MEDICINE HAT The mayor of Medicine Hat plead- ed guilty in provincial court Friday to a charge of failing to comply with an order from the provincial board of health. Henry Viner, owner of the Highcraft China plant, was ordered twice by the board of health to remedy unsatisfac- tory and hazardous work en- vironment conditions in the plant. The poor conditions, said Dr. Fcdney May, direct- or of industrial health for Al- berta, were due mainly to high concentrations of dust in the air. The case was adjourned un- til Feb. l. 1974, at which time sentence will be handed down. Dr. May said in a telephone interview from Edmonton he thought the severity of the sentence would depend upon steps Mr. Viner takes between DOW and next Feb- ruary to improve conditions at his plant. The first order from the board of health was issued May 4, 1971, with a comple- tion date set for Nov. The order was not complied with at that time, Dr. May said, and another order was issued Jan. 15, 1972, with a completion date set for Sept. l, 1972. The charge against Mr. Viner arose from failure to comply with the second, or- der, Dr. May said. Certified Dental Medianic CLIFF BLACK, BLACK DENTAL LAI MWfCAL DENTAL BLOC.
