Eight youths, including four girls and four boys between the ages of 13 and 14 years old, planned their protest to coin- cide with public hearings in Calgary regarding the propos- ed development. CompJeto with home mario placards, the youths stood at the corner or 3rd Ave. S. and Mayor Magrath Drive, to dis- play their displeasure towards the project. Fearing retaliation against their parents in the form of jeopardizing jobs, the young- sters asked their names not be published. Initially ilio youngsters harl planned to picket the Esso sta- tion on (ho corner because Im- perial Oil Ltd., a company they feel is controlled by its United States pan-tit company, is a partner in the proposed devel- opment. However, they felt it unfair to affect the business of only one service station when the entire corporation was at fault. AND FURNACE AND REFRIGERATION SERVICE Charlton Hill Ltd. 1262 2nd Ave. S.

"Just because their parks are polluted, why should they pollute the youths asked, referring to the U.S. financial support involved. They advised Canadians to write their MLAs, MPs and Im- perial Oil headquarters in Cal- gary to voice their opposition to the development. In addition, they suggested that people dealing with Im- perial Oil Ltd., through its Esso service station outlets or other- wise, stop dealing 'there. More than eight youths had originally planned to protest the Lake Louise development, but many did not arrive for a "variety" of reasons. The response from the motor- ing public ranged from total support, to apathy, to opposi- tion to the protest. The majority of the public supports their cause, the youths said. A motorist told the youths he have supported the cause it if were not "so anti- American." The youths said the protest is not anti American, but a public protest to keep Canada's parks natural and clean. They pointed out that there arc many non park areas with similar settings to Lake Louise, that could be develooed instead. 1 Accident injures three Three people were taken to hospital this morning following a car accident at Mill St. and 12th Ave. S.

Dr. James Oshiro, 50, of Coal- dale said the U of L will have to look at new areas such as management arts programs and professional schools. He said a s c h o o 1 of optom- etry may be a possibility, since there is only one such school in Canada. A physician and surgeon in Coaldale for the past 22 years, Dr. Oshiro has served on the U of L board of governors for the past two years and previ- ously served a short period on cultural part of this area.'' Dr. Oshiro said he felt it is unfortunate that the university is used as an attraction for in- dustrial and economic growth. "Large industrial concerns are somctimes attracled be- cause of the presence of a uni- versity in the community. "It is a mistake to place emphasis on this. The univer- sity is a fringe benefit." He said the primary role of the university is the cultural and educational aspect and there is too much emphasis placed on the university as a training ground for profession- al people, Dr. Oshiro said he sees tlie drop in university enrolments as a "temporary' phenomenon." But, he added, the university must continually review its function within the society in which it lies in order to main- tain its relevance. mi the university Senate, He also was a member of the County of Lcfhbridge school ccrnmiL- tco. Dr. Osliiro was named to a fo ur-y ear term as nnivers it y chancellor on Saturday, re- placing Chief Judge L. S. Tur- cotte. He feels the U of L is steadily growing as a major cultural force in southern Alberta. "They have already attracted people of quality to the faculty who are deeply inter- ested in local h R said. "This university will not adopt the ivory tower concept. The intake is just down- stream from the present ice jam.

W i t h the continuing mild weather, molting snow from the mountains will add to the flow of the river and unless the passage is free, more extensive floodir." is possible. Winds are expected to be in- termittent for the next few days. There is no immediate dan- ger for the Lethbridge area. Bob Wells, manager of the Prairie Farm Rehabilitation Administration in Lethbridgc, said the major water runoEE for this area occur in late May and early June. Most of the runoff due to snowfall accumulation has al- ready been handled through the river systems. Mr. Wells said it depends on the weather in April and May whether there will be any prob- lem here. If warm weather combines with heavy rainfall in April and May, there could be prob- lems, he said.
