Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 6, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 LETHBRIDOE HERALD March Provinces said jealous of education jurisdiction The provincial governments are very jealous of their jur- isdiction over education and would do without money for education rather than lose any control of it, says a federal civil servant. The federal government is very jealous of its areas of jurisdictions as well, Peter Roberts, _ assistant undersecretary the state secretary's cultural branch, told a handful of people at the University of Lethbridge Tuesday night. Mr. Roberts was addressing the fifth and final session of the politics of higher education series on the federal position on secondary education. The federal government is not going to get involved in a dispute with the provincial governments over the control of education. "We recognize this as the provinces' area, he said in response to a comment from Owen Holmes, vice president of the U of L Dr. Holmes claimed the universities were not getting fair treatment from the Fernie is back on map of B. C. FERNIE (Staff) Forgotten Fernie was never really forgotten and the whole map controversy just might turn out to be a tempest in a tea cup. Today Fernie is back on the British Columbia map. A month ago the Fernie Board of Trade voted to secede from B C and join Alberta. Kimberley merchants also decided to come along to the "land of the big sky" but there's a lot of ground between the two B.C. centres and a lot of miners decided, through their unions, that wages were good and B.C. wasn't so bad after all. But the main issue, that of Fernie being left off a travel industry department map, has been rectified if somewhat belatedly The latest issue of Beautiful B.C., the official government magazine, has a 12-page spread on the Crowsnest Pass-Fernie area of southeastern B.C. Dick Colby, deputy minister of the travel industry department said the article was commissioned 18 months ago long before the Fernie Board of Trade decided it was forgotten Fernie." Mr. Colby says the article was on the presses when this whole map thing broke out Now government officials are waiting for the Ferme Board of Trade to rescind that motion. Second halfway house plan tabled by MFC provincial government and much stronger federal participation in education was needed. Mr Roberts suggested one way for universities to be more independent would be to give students some of the federal money that goes to the provinces each year for education.' In this way instead of having 10 per cent of their funding coming from the students and the rest from the provincial governments, 30 per cent would come from the students. He told the audience who braved Tuesday night's snow storm that the federal government paid billion to the provinces for education each year and that it had no control over this money. It's handed to the provinces to do with as they like. The only education money the federal government has any A second proposal for a halfway recovery house for alcoholics and dependent drug abusers was to be tabled today for two weeks by the Municipal Planning Commission.

If the federal government doesn't take this responsibility, who will, he asked. The provinces might and might not, he claimed. Mr. Roberts said one of the federal government's priorities iri post secondary education istosee the poor get as good a crack at university education as the rich. It is usually the children from the higher income families who come to university although everybody including the poor are paying for it.

Support grows for art gallery in Gait library By WARREN CARAGATA Herald Staff Writer A brief and supporting petition will be presented to city council Monday night calling on the city to turn over the old library building for an art gallery. A public meeting Tuesday night attended by more than 40 persons and called by a group of citizens wanting the old library as a gallery, was told city council made a hasty decision m giving the building to the community services department. Volunteers from the meeting will get signatures on the petition throughout the city in time for Monday's regular council meeting. The group is also asking support from the chamber of commerce, the school boards, the library board and other groups. The old library will close as services are transferred to the new library building on 9th St and 5th Ave. S. At the Feb 25 meeting of city council, a request was acpepted from the community services branch to use the building as office space, with some room for community use. Isabel Hamilton, a leader of the citizens' group, said the city needs an art gallery, because other facilities now used are not adequate. The community services branch will renovate the building for office space and Balancing act The Lethbridge Community College has its stu- dents climbing the walls in the Exhibition Pavilion. The climbing act, performed by Guy Rouse who is a renewable resources student in the environmental science program at LCC, is part of the college's career display each evening at Ag-Expo.

INSTALLATION HUIDIFIER 1709 3O-H73 then after three years move into offices in an addition to city hall, Mrs. Hamilton claimed. "Community services doesn't need the unique features of that she said. She told the meeting the cost to taxpayers should the building be used as a gallery would be minimal, with most of the funds needed for renovation and operating expenses coming from the provincial government and the Canada Council. It would cost the city more money to turn the library over to the community services department than it would to let the site be used as an art gallery, she said. In addition to providing space for national exhibitions and shows by local artists, a gallery could be used by both the public and separate school boards to foster student interest in the arts Neil Johnson, co-ordmator of fine arts programs for the Lethbridge public school board, said at the meeting school art exhibitions now have to compete for space with physical education programs and usually come out on the losing end. There are students in the city and they need a gallery program in their curriculum, he said Mrs. Hamilton said the gallery would also be used extensively by people living in the district. Library to begin book transfer next week The Lethbridge Public Library officially took over its new building Feb. 15, and discussion regarding it took up a large part of Tuesday's library board meeting. Librarian George Dew told the board the take over was made on substantial completion of the building, though some work remained. More copper is needed to make the roof completely weatherproof, and the library may have to open with a make shift main desk if the specially designed control centre is not ready. Mr. Dew said the transfer of books to the new library would begin next week and be 60 per cent complete by March 25, when the new building will open for business. The transfer should be finished by the end of that week, he said. Aid. Tom Ferguson said Chief Judge L. S. Turcotte would officially open the new building. Chief Judge Turcotte was formerly mayor and alderman of Lethbridge- As mayor he was automatically on the library-board. The board also authorized the librarian to work out maintenance arrangements with the city's community services department.

Funds would come from the library's budget. Mr Dew later told The Herald it would be cheaper to have the city do the work at cost than to pay a contractor's profit.
