DRAWING PROTESTS TORONTO (CP) - The University of Toronto was accused at a public hearing on a university proposal to abolish its faculty of food sciences. Shirley Cornfield, a food sciences grad< uate, contended the university had neglected the faculty, allowed the staff to dwindle and failed to search for sources of research grants. LEISTER'S MUSIC LTD. Campus Corner By FRED UWAZNY � DON'T know why such shows are allowed on the TV," proclaimed an elderly lady. Along side of her, another expounded, "I can't understand why anyone would think we would enjoy such programs. Even in the movies all we see now is sex and violence." My answer to such people is, why do you watch the programs? Nobody is forcing you to do so. Lethbridge has two channels on the boob tube and in some homes, four. Our city has three theatres and all have a good variety of subjects on the screen. Such movies and programs show the people what is really going on in the world or what could happen if certain -instances arose. Many people should just look around themselves or better yet, right in their own homes before they criticize. Modern man rushes day to day without thought of himself or others. He emotionally and physically hurts his fellow humans, animals or whatever, without a second thought; he takes advantage of as much as he can get away with, just as what is depicted on a television or movie screen. Too many of us, are afraid of seeing ourselves. Sometimes a viewer can actually see himself on that screen and is appalled. Man is finally subconsciously aware that he is where all can see him and this is what he fears, not that his or her chil dren will do nasty things. The ladies mentioned earlier are in fact hiding their fears and not in truth saying: "My children's virgin ears!" So people, the next time you go to a movie, think before you say "That was a terrible movie, all there was was violence." The only way to combat these movies is not complain to the censorship board, but refrain from seeing the film or improve your life so authors can write about good things. Here at the college this week, elections are proceeding. All the nominated people for the various positions are campaigning enthusiastically. Posters, speeches and skits catch the eye and ear of all the students. This month of March promises the all famous Western Days. This gala time allows students to try their hand at rodeo events. Truly no Western Day is, unless a rodeo is scheduled, with rodeo people wearing the traditional outfits. A dance is also scheduled for the night of Western Day (March 26). (The views voiced in the above column do not necessarily concur with either those of The Herald or Leister's, but are a reflection of the student opinion.) Pemmican Club president first woman in 85 years By MARGARET LUCKHURST Herald Staff Writer SOMETHING new has hap-pened down at the Old-timers' Pemmican Clubr^For the first time in its 85 year history, a woman has been named president.

Mrs. McKenzie was born and raised right here in Lethbridge, the daughter of Tom McCaugh-erty who came west from Kingston, Out., in 1881. A second generation Irish-Canadian Tom McCaughtery first freighted with the I. G. Baker Company from Fort Benton to Fort Macleod. After he'd earned himself a little bank account he staked out a homestead in what is now West Lethbridge. TOP TWELVE 45 R.P.M fjj^^^Sll^^mSTER'S MAIL ORDERS!

ADDRESS ................................, "The boss hates sideburns, but i think I've got him fooled...I stopped clipping my eyebrows and he hasn't even noticed." "There wasn't a school over there to begin with," Mrs. McKenzie said, "so we had a governess come in to give lessons to those of us of school age. Later a school was built nearby and we attended there." Mrs. McCaugherty died in 1912 and young Lila helped bring up the younger members of the family. In 1921 she married Leonard McKenzie and they went to farm about 4 miles north of the city. They raised three sons, one who is with the department of education, another in medical practice in Edmonton, and the other, until recently, maintaining the farm. Mrs. McKenzie has a deep love of farm life and is shocked and annoyed with the present governmental policy of squeezing out the small fanner in favor of large cooperatives. "If you work even reasonably hard, you can make a decent living oh a small acreage and enjoy many rewards. You may not have too many luxuries, but you are independent and don't have to be at someone's beck and call." Mrs. McKenzie has mixed reactions to her election as president of the prestigious Pemmican Club. "I don't think it has anything to do with women's liberation," she said, "I think it's simply recognizing my background. My mother was also an early Lethbridgeite, coming from Truro, England in 1889. I expect it was my background that influenced the nominating committee." The Pemmican Club, with a membership of over 1,500, was organized in 1885 and it has been said to be the oldest club in Alberta, if not in all the western provinces. In order to qualify for membership one has to have been in Lethbridge prior to Dec. 31,1910, or be able to prove that one's parents were prior to that. Anyone 30 or over can join in his own right if qualifications are met, and young people can accompany parents to certain club functions from 18 years of age on. Mrs. McKenzie explained that the Club's funds are raised from the annual ball, from card parties and events sponsored by the ladies' group. There are nine members on the Board of Directors, which meets once a month. The goals of the Club, apart from fellowship, Mrs. McKenzie explained, are to perpetu ate interest in the historic back' ground of Lethbridge through talks, films and collection of artifacts which are presented to the Sir Alexander Gait Museum. Mrs. McKenzie is quite confident her year in office will be stimulating and interesting. "I'll probably profit a good deal more from the experience than the members will," she said. Consumer Assn. disbands The Lethbridge branch of the Consumer Association of Canada-was disbanded at a meeting held last night at the gas company auditorium. Plans for the formation of a Consumer Action Committee are now being looked into. The function of such a committee would be to provide a framework within which a limited number of CAC members in the same or adjacent communities may actively work together to forward the objectives of the Consumer's Association of Can- Calendar of local liappeninys Faith Rebekah Lodge No. 93 will meet at 8 p.m. on Monday in the Oddfellows hall.
