Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 24, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, Juno 24, 1970 YATE5' SKELETON CLOSET Lethbridge's cultural development superintendent Dick Mells sits in the Yates Memorial Centre in a storage room seldom seen by the public. Re- maining unmodified since the centre opened in 1966, the 80-foot, set-storage area lies beneath the main auditorium, directly below the Votes' 500 seats. Mr. Mells indicated there are adequate funds available to build cupboards, but not enough to pave the room's gravel bottom. The stored sets are usually utilized by more than one local drama or music group, and the eagle-eyed theatre-goer may notice strangely familiar items, re-painted or re-shaped, appearing in two or more productions. Peigans Continue Aid To Napi Friendship Group After valuation of its finan- cial commitment to the Napi Friendship Association, the Peigan Band Council Tuesday morning re-affirmed support, withdrawing a proposed cut in the band grant to Napi. A delegation from the com- munity approached council when informed of the cut and presented a budget for the coming year's operation with reasons why the grant _was needed. Ed Yenowhccn, vice-presi- dent of the association said the chief was pleased with the an- swers the delegation was able to provide. One reason the grant was continued wss the fact that if on the reserve are behind the association, and the chief and council know it. "This has been evident with the response to programs spon- sored by the association. There are more native people using the programs each year, with the reserve benefiting from the association more than any oth- er group. Mr. Yellowhorn said the most interesting and informative programs put on by the as- sociation are the ones dealing with law and the native people. "Tilings the native people have been suffering from in the past years because they didn't know where they stood, are the he said.

School District Communications Campaign Planned The Lethbridge public school board will produce a special eight-page tabloid supplement to be delivered in the Leth- bridge Herald Aug. 15, as the start of an extensive public communications campaign. The supplement will cost about including printing, writing and other expenses, and will include information of interest to parents, taxpayers and students. Trustees accepted Dr. 0. P. Larson, schools superinten- dent's recommendation that the supplement be printed just prior to the start of the fall semester Aug. 24. The board will also seek a meeting with representatives from all city news media to see what they would be inter- ested in doing along the same line in future as an assist to the board's intent to make the Lethbridge public more aware of what the Lethbridge schools are doing. "We have to be concerned about our rapport with the community as it relates to the school system, said trustee Dr. Doug MoPlierson. "There is an undercurrent of misunderstanding in the com- munity about what the school system is doing, and this would be the best possible way to solve many of these problems. Trustee Doug Card told the board he expected an increased interest from radio and televi- sion stations in developing new local programming due to the latest Canadian Radio-Televi- sion Commission regulations. The CRTC is requiring cer- tain minimum levels of local and Canadian programming in prime listening and viewing time. He said it is likely the sta- tions would be interested in adding feature material 'on Lethbridge education to then' schedules. Dr. Larson said the supple- ment in The Herald will likely include information on school opening and closing times, new school boundaries, the new pub- lic school district administra- tive organization and its new officers, and information on an evaluation being made on (lie divided school year by Univer- sity of Lethbridge professor Dr. Vern Dravland. He said many other school systems are moving to this form cf public relations system since they can reach almost ev- eryone in the community through the news media.

The show runs locally on Sun- day mornings on CFCN-TV. An estimated persons tune in to the program. The Arkansas-born minister originally travelled with his family on a tent-crusade. In 1952, he and his wife, Maude Aimee Humbard, and a bro- ther-in-law, pitched their tent in Akron, Ohio. By 1958, the Cathedral was com- pleted. The church has an interde- nominational congregation of about persons, and is the centre of operations for Mr. Humbard's television programs.

Ph. 3J8-7684 Above Capitol Furnilurt EDDY DIETRICH, C.D.M. i v V-" s fyl '4; .3 PAUL YUTSYK Rail Career Ends For Paul Yutsyk By MARGARET LUCKHURST Herald Staff Writer "When I first came to Cana- da from Russia in work- ed on the railway which was being built in northern Mani- toba from The Pas to Flin said Paul Yutsyk who retired recently from CP Rail, "it was pretty rugged country, and working conditions rough. "The mosquitos, which were plentiful, were the size of horses I'm sure." It was not a particularly good time for immigrants in Canada, Mr. Yutsyk said, for jobs were very scarce indeed. "In the early years of the depression I worked in a soup kitchen in Montreal for 10 cents an hour. Later I became a short order cook and earned 35 cents an hour. A man couldn't save any- thing on a wage like that." When Mr. Yutsyk joined the railway, it was the height of passenger travel. "Roads and highways weren't all that he explained, "and not too many people had cars. It was a time when rail- way traffic was at its peak." As a dining car steward, Mr. Yutsyk in later years watched the decline in passenger ser- vice and the gradual reduction in service. "Dining cars were removed of he explained, "and stewards became redudant." Mr. Yutsyk however, in I960, was assigned steward to the business car in the Lethbridge division. "This car is a kind of travelling office of the rail- he said, "if the superin- tendent wanted to meet with officials in Medicine Hat, we'd be placed on the end of a freight train, travel to the Hat, bring in the men involved and they'd conduct their business in the car. I was chief cook and bottle washer wherever the car went. "Now this type of service is being reduced also. The tele- phone is taking over from the regular business meeting." Upon retirement Mr. Yutsyk doesn't intend to stray far from Lethbridge. "I've done enough travelling in my he said, "I'm con- tent to stay at home now Gooder Takeover Set The Lctlibridge public school district's takeover of the Dor-' orlhy Gooder School for men- tally retarded children is jl- most 11 reality, after the pub- lic board approved a draft agreement for the takeover. The agreement, between the board and the present Gooder school operators, the Lctii- bridge Association for the Men- tally Retarded, will be drafted in legal terms by the district's solicitor and signed to go into effect Aug. 1. The public board will agree to take full responsibility for operation and finance of the school, retaining most of the special opportunities and facili- ties the sclwol offers. (The takeover was requested by the LAMR due to financial impossibility of offering the specialized services the chil- dren need.) Teachers at the school are to be retained and employed by the board. The Alberta Teach- ers' Association has agreed to recognize Dorothy Gooder teachers who lack teaching cer- tificates, so they will fall un- der the ATA's salary grid. The public school district will receive special grants from the provincial government in re- turn for operating the school. Lethbridge separate school district and non-Lethbridge residents will continue to have access to the school under the agreement.
