Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 9, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta DON'T LAUGH! NOW IS THE TIME TO REGISTER FOR YOUR 1973 CHRISMAS HAWAIIAN HOLIDAY REGISTER NOW AND DON'T BE DISAPPOINTED ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL CENTRE VILLAGE MALL PHONE 328-3201 The Lethbridge Herald SECOND SECTION Lethbridge,, Alberta, Friday, March 9,1973 PAGES 15-26 LETHBRIDGE OFFICE FURNITURE LTD. Lower level 7th Strctt Shopping Mall Lethbridge, Alberta Phone (403) 328-7411 FILING CABINETS Scouting changes outlined Boy scouts still learn to tie knots and build campfires but activities involving grcui Hy-namics and Human development also apparently have a part in the scouting movement today. The approach to scouting now is more oriented towards social development and human relationships than on skills and achievement, some 25 people at Thursday's noon meeting of the Southern Alberta Council on Public Affairs were told. STOCK TAKING Replying to a question about changes in the b o y scout curriculum, John L. MacGregor, deputy chief of the Boy Scouts of Canada, told the meeting at Sven Ericksen's Family Restaurant the boy scout organization went through a painful process of self-examination and stock taking about 10 years ago. "We had to go right back to our stated purpose - helping young people to develop character, physically, spiritually, mentally, and emotionally," Mr. MacGregor said. , PLUGGED IN "We found we had overlooked social development, and after a great deal of discussion we plugged into it, he said. "That may sound easy, but it has many implications ... it was a dramatic move for an organization that bad concentrated on sktHs and was terribly task-oriented." Mr. MacGregor also said the scouts still have trouble attracting yomg people, because they have a fixed view about that kind of an organization, based on their impressions of what it had been in the past. From Ottawa, Mr. Mac Gregor is in the last leg of an Alberta tour. He will also speak at the annual meeting and banquet of the Southern Alberta Regional Council of the Boy Scouts at Sven Ericksen's Saturday night.

STUBBS We like to know that you're Interested in your health, and we're always glad to answer your questions on which we're ethically allowed to talk with you. Just the other day, for i n s t ance, we were asked, "Is a chemical auto-matically a drug?" and this is a good question because we've often found the indentifi-cation of a drug being confused with its application. Chemicals and drugs are two different, very different, things, Actually, a chemical substance is a drug when (1) its usage has been medically-approved, (2) when your physician has been completely informed about its powers, and (3) when it is finally and easily available to you, the patient. Chemical cam-pounds, as such are not necessarily drugs. Free parking? Of course. Free prescription delivery? Of course. Friendly, helpful service? Of course. Stubbs Pharmacy at 1506 9th Ave. S.?

Mr. Smith, an Indian, said he is a basketball player at Lethbridge Community College and wanted the rubbing alcohol for a linament. Pharmacy proprietor B. B. Tucker dismissed the discrimin- ation charges as hogwash and referred to.the incident as a set-up. He said all drug stores in town have a quota on rubbing alcohol and have to sell it on their own discretion. If Mr. Smith had been known to the store, the store would have sold him the rubbing alcohol, Mr. Tucker says. "Or if he told us what it was for we could have sold him something else as a linament." U of L, LCC purposes differ By HERB LEGG Herald Staff Writer The University of Lethbridge is more interested in a "global approach" to education than it is to the specific needs of Lethbridge and Southern Alberta. "The policy was emphatically stated Thursday by U of L president Dr. Bill Beckel, speaking to the Southern Alberta Council on Public Affairs. Lethbridge Community College, on the other hand, is dedicated to serving the needs of Lethbridge and its surrounding district. That statement was presented at the same meeting by LCC president Dr. C. D. Stewart. Each man spoke for 15 minutes, Dr. Beckel followed by Dr. Stewart. FOR SOCIETY "The university exists for society, for civilization. It also exists at the pleasure of society.

"Its allegiance, responsibility and dependence is on the world society, or, civilization. That is the basis for the existence of the university," Dr. Beckel said. He said a special effort must be made at the U of L to keep it from losing contact with the broader society. He said the purpose of the university is to conserve knowledge, create knowledge and transmit knowledge. GUARDIAN "The university is the formal guardian of the intellectual past, present and future of man. To change from this means the elimination of the university," he said. Dr. Beckel said society requires the university to certify its students, a system which he said is now under attack. "Most of the students, and most of the general public, expect a rational evaluation of the accomplishments of students connected with the university. "The university has a global orientation, not just a narrower community orientation. Evaluation is a critical element of intellectual effort everywhere. "If we cease to exist, society will be the poorer," Dr. Beckel said. CRITICISM LCC president Dr. Stewart criticized the press for what he termed ignoring the positive accomplishments of the college and accenting negative or controversial aspects. He said LCC is geared primarily to the needs of the local area. "A community college offers instruction for persons beyond the age of normal secondary school pupils. Academic staff are employed in colleges solely for teaching," Dr. Stewart said. He said LCC offers 125 non- credit courses during the fall and winter, attended by about 2,000 persons. He said LCC has the most successful continuing education program in Alberta. NO SUCCESS Dr. Stewart said LCC has had "no success so far" in transferring students to the University of Lethbridge. "At present, five LCC students are in attendance at the University of Lethbridge. So far, we are not aware of any credit they have received for courses completed at the college." Dr. Stewart said transfer programs have been arranged between LCC and: College of Great Falls, Gonzaga University, Idaho State, University of Montana, Eastern Washington State College, Weber State College (Utah), University of Utah and the University of Alberta. Not only has the U of L refused credit-transfer of local college students, Dr. Stewart said, but Brigham Young University has denied transfer because "the registrar at the University of Lethbridge will not accept our students." Dr. Beckel said the U of L is in the process of examining LCC courses and is "making [progress in terms of understanding programs offered at the college." 1,173 pints of blood given during 3-day clinic Blood was provided in generous quantities here this week as Red Cross workers recorded one of the best attendances ever at a Lethbridge donor's clinic. Attendance was definitely up, said Mrs. Eleanor Holroyd, clinic organizer. "We passed the 300 attendance mark on each of three evenings." Volunteer and staff helpers tallied 1,173 bottles of blood after the clinic ended Thursday evening at the Civic Centre gymnasium. "Wo had less rejects than expected, considering the high incidence of flu that has been around the city," Mrs. Holroyd said. INCOME TAX | INDIVIDUAL, FARM, and BUSINESS RETURNS F. M. DOUGLAS 917-27 Street *A' N. I Ph. 328-0330, 323-1705 An additional two donors were called to Lethbridge Municipal Hospital to provide blood for emergencies, Mrs. Holroyd added. "The Canadian Red Cross organization wishes to thank all the donors, individuals and organizations who provided volunteer help. We also wish to thank the news media for their co-operation during the clinic," Mrs. Holroyd said. Another Lethbridge blood donor clinic has been scheduled for the same location on June 5, 6 and 7. By HERB LEGG Herald Staff Writer Officials of Lethbridge Community College, who appeared in Grande Prairie Thursday to appeal a cut in their operating budget, indicated there is little hope of the appeal being successful until LCC lowers its $272,000 surplus. No formal decision was announced on the appeal when members of the Alberta Colleges' Commission adjourned hearings Thursday afternoon. LCC president Dr. C. p. Stewart asked the commission for a $57,000 increase in grants to cover rising tuition costs. Commission chairman Dr. Henry Kolesar said a decision on the appeal, if not made today would be made March 29. AT RED DEER The ACC sits at Red Deer today to consider a budget application from Red Deer College. In an interview with The Herald, Dr. Stewart said his college funds have been well managed. "Responsibility and accountability is our motto. Governments have been suggesting to us that our country cannot afford the projected expenditures of educational institutions. "We hope we are doing our small part to help them without jeopardizing quality education," Dr. Stewart said. SIX AREAS He said the LCC surplus is found in six areas: salary increases, under budget, $55,000; new staff appointments, under budget, $50,000; advance provincial funding, $35,000; income from the University of Lethbridge, $46,000; Priority Employment Program, $32,000; college services to Canada Manpower and Indian Affairs, $40,000. Dr. Stewart strongly opposed any budget cut - or change in LCC tuition rates - by the ACC. "If Lethbridge is cut back, it can mean only one thing-some other college must definitely be allowed a much greater increase in costs of operation. NEW SITUATION "Now that governments are suggesting serious cuts, it is no longer possible to provide a uniform cut across all institutions. This would require reduction in services in some of the colleges that are operating with reasonable cost increases," he said. Dr. Stewart said LCC is will ing to place Its surplus in a capital trust account to be used by the college for land purchase, renovations to the sci ence building and improve ment of campus grounds. He said LCC had been assured by Advanced Education Minister Jim Foster that no NOW IS THE TIME TO START YOUR GRASS AND WEED CONTROL PROGRAM WITH "Treflari" The selective herbicide for the PRE-EMERGENCE control of annual grasses and .broadleaf weeds including . . .

"The Colleges Commission, has, however, seen fit to place Lethbridge Community College in the. embarrassing position of asking students in the fall of 1973 to undergo an unrealistic fee increase," Dr. Stewart said. LCC could also face a revenue loss of $57,000 if the commission changes the campus fee structure, he said. "Lethbridge Community College is somewhat shocked at this rather shoddy treatment by the commission in the light of the understanding we previously had with regard to fees," Dr; Stewart said. He said the college is seeking extra funds, totalling $57,-000, to cover the commission's change in tuition rates' at Lethbridge. Talks continue to avert strike Settlement has still not been reached after three days of mediation talks between rural teachers and the Southern Alberta School Authorities Association. Discussions were held Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday under the supervision of the industrial relations board. Details of meetings Thursday have not been released to the public. Mediation will continue today at Lethbridge and could stretch into the weekend if agreement on a 1973 teachers' contract is not reached.

Teachers are seeking a 7.5 per cent salary increase and trustee contributions of 50 per cent to the Alberta Health Plan and Blue Cross. Trustees have offered a 6.2 increase for 1973, a 6 per cent wage boost on the last four months of 1972 plus complete trustee payment of the Teachers' Disability Fund. Rural teachers in 18 Southern Alberta districts have been without a contract since September of last year. If a 1973 contract is signed, it will expire less than six months from now on August 31.
