S. PHONE 328-7121 "Do you have a pair of alaim for holiday Athletics program at Whoop-Up Days The stockade at Whoop-Up Compound at the Lethbridge Exhibition Grounds is coming down. The Canada Fitness Awards program will occupy com- pound (his year in a first at- tempt at mass athletic partici- pation by youngsters from sev- en to 17 years as a daily fea- ture of Whoop-Up Days cele- brations. With no charge and a visual appreciation for the crowds, exhibition officials felt the sol- id stockade fence would hinder the mass participation aspect of the athletic events. Conducted from noon to 5 p.m. daily during the Whoop- Up Days, the fitness awards program consists of an exam- ination of general physical fit- ness, in five specific test areas, of any boys and girls within the age classification. A norm will be set lor all the tests and crests will be award ed all persons who pass the norm. The degree of passing will be recognized by gold, sil ver and bronze crusts. The 100-yard dash, broad jump and horizontal bars wil be included in the tests. Th rest of the test program will bt filled out when officials deter mine the success of the pro- gram at the Saskatoon sum me: lair. The evening program in th ompourx' will feature sports emonstrations by top Canadi- n stars. The sports techniques vill be demonstrated and trcs ublic will be invited to try hoir hnnds as well. Most of the demonstrations vill be held in a universal gym, while prc-school children vill be permitted to play in an area where foam rubber equip- ment is in use. Golf, tennis, archery, basket- ball, gymnastics, soccer and other sports will be recognized jy the sports stars. Hockey Canada skill tests ,vill be run off using an arti- ficial ice surface made of plas- Lic. Figure skaters will be able to do tests also. Includcr1 in this portion of the celebrations will be demonstra- tions put on by local recreation departments from southern Al- berta. These will include sports that are available for people of all ages, including archery, crafts and drama. Andy Andrews, manager of the Lethbridge and District Ex- Iiibition Association, said Fort Macleod, Pincher Creek, Taber and Cardston officials have been very active. Sports Canada will hire 40 local youths to work during the week at the display in the com- pound. Many Opportunity for Youth groups will be represent- ed in the compound also. Water restrictions remaining in force Watering restrictions in the city remain in effect as consult-1 ants work on the design for inv i provements which should elimi- nate the need for rationing in future years. Associated Engineering Ser- vices Ltd. of Calgary is pre- paring final recommendations to double the water treatment plant's capacity to filter water, city engineer Handy Holfcld said. Now, with the high turpldity (dirt content) of the Oldman River, the plant takes in gallons of water per minute but can have only gallons per minute of filtered water to pump to the city.' The other gallons is used in the puri- fication process and runs back into the river. The two factors, lack of ca- pacity and turpidity, have made watering restrictions necessary. The river is "still pretty Mi'. Holfeld said, and won't clear up until the midla of July. At that time, however, tho emands for water will likely x high, particularly from the anning companies, Mr. Hoi- eld said. The watering rcstric- ions will be reviewed when those demands are determined. City Manager Tom Nutting ]as cautioned that heavy re. trictions will probably be nec- essary in the fall when the renovations to the water treat ment plant begin.

Friday is taxman's deadline Local property owners have three days, until Friday, to pay property taxes without penalty. A penalty of one per cent will be charged on taxes paid be- tween July 1 and July 31. Taxes paid during October have a four per cent charge tacked on, during November, a six per cent charge and dur- ing December, the maximum eight per cent penalty. Last week, the local assess- ment department received to bring this year's to- tal to MS ,150. The total is .41 per cent of the 1972 estimated levy. After the third week in June of 1971, only 33 per cent of the estimated levy had been col- lected. "But it still is valuable to school boards even if some rec- ommendations aren't imple- mented because lay people, the home and school, the chamber of commerce and other such groups will undoubtedly be thinking and talking about it. "This will have quite an im- pressive impact on education in Alberta even in the next five Dr. Larson said he v.'as im- pressed with "the common sense nature of many of the recommendations" and didn'l find that much that was really startling or radical. The recommendation of early education for five year and special education for handicapped or disabled coil dren in the three to four-year- old bracket drew Dr. Larson's support. He said the costs of such a move may throw a little cold water on the idea but "if the money was available I'm sure most school boards would be happy to jump in. "I think we will be at this in the very near future Within the next year or so, v may find the government tak ing some steps along this line. Dr. Larson said he als liked the commission's idea p settling teacher contract dis putes.

The clock ond tower could come down next year if plans for a new post office building go ahead as scheduled. Many Ulhbridge residents, particularly those who have been here as lona as the clock, are upset that a piece of history may have to fall under the hammer of progress. __________________ Walter Kerber Photo own and he would select most reasonable offer from tba wo which have been submit- ed. Dr. Larson said, while vould not p'.ish the idea, 'ouldn't mind suggesting that eachers and trustees take a lose look at following this pro- edure. "I don't know why It couldn't be instituted here. It seems like a reasonable thing to do. It should help promote early set- lements and I certainly wouldn't stand in the way of. his being introduced he aid. The community-school pro- posal contained in the 325-page report is a "first-class, top- uiotch idea." Dr. Larson said Lethbridge schools are already moving in this direction, in co-operation with the city recreation depart- ment. City schools are turned over to the department at p.m. each day, on weekends and holidays for any program that the department wants to con- duct. The main theme of the re- port, that education in the fu- ture will have to be human oriented rather than industry oriented, is the right way to thinking. Dr. Larson said. "This is going to have to hap- pen and our philosophy in Leth- bridge is already moving So this direction."

"Most of our meetings are open, with the exception of a few confidential said Dr. Pentz. "There hasn't been much discussion about closing the meetings. I would be opposed to it because the media help to bring the college before the public." Grande Prairie College also conducts its board meeting in the open meeting principle, again with the exception or a few confidential matters which arc discussed privately. However, no decisions are ever made in closed session. Don Harper, registrar at the Grande Prairie college, saic this policy lias existed since the college opened six years ago. The same situation existed Red Deer College before its joard of governors was scraped in the recent government Dr. Ron Pigers, vice-presi-ent at Red Deer, said when he board of governors existed, lost meetings were open, ex-ept for certain matters which vcre discussed behind closed oors. "I don't think closed meetings are necessary but there are ome things that shouldn't be made public right he aid.
