"We havo been Satisfying Customers for Over 60 Years" 325 8th St. S.r lethbridge Phone 327-3920 // You Ask Me. By Jim Wilion TVE Moir committee of inquiry into non-Canadian influence * in Alberta post - secondary education is nothing but a seven-man disaster area which hopefully will be rapidly forgotten. I want to make it quite clear that I in no way mean to cast any doubts on the sincerity of committee members, except to say it was obviously a grave mistake on their,pacts to become involved in the inquiry. Even the basis for the committee's formation smacks of sloppy assessment of the facts. A few graduate students at the University of Alberta found they couldn't get their choice of jobs-their disciplines are a glut on the academic market already - so they got everyone m Edmonton uptight. The U of A considers itself the centre of the entire universe, so it decided several Jobless graduates there and several previously announced at Carleton University in Ottawa (the centre of another universe) meant there were'millions like them all over the place. The provincial government considers itself at least tin centre of Alberta, so It decided it must study the U of A's observations. It chose a name packed with bias-''inquiry into non-Canadian influence" - which could not possibly avoid arousing resentment from Canadians and non - Canadians alike. Why, for example, couldn't it have inquired into ways to emphasize Canadian influence - assuming that this is something perfect? One thing such a positively - oriented committee could suggest is government subsidies of education research, Canadian publishing houses and Canadian authors. Learning, of itself, is human, not Canadian. But books and materials for helping students to learn is generally American because a pure Canadian product would be idiotically expensive. I also seriously question the value of a report from a committee which showed its own biases by heckling speakers it disagreed with - as the Moir committee did in Lethbridge. Why bother to spend money on hotel bills if your mind is already made up? There certainly is a problem today in Canadian degree-holders finding jobs in Canada, but the same problem exists through the entire job scene. And most of the academic problem is due to a simple lack of the need for as many new professors each year as there was a few years ago. Then, Canada had to import foreign experts because we hadn't yet trained enough of our own. Those experts have now trained many Canadian experts, but in doing so have often become Canadians themselves. Do we throw them out now? In non - academic walks of life people get used to applying for several different types of jobs at times, and taking one which perhaps they hadn't really had in mind when they started. Academics, Unfortunately, are convinced that holding a degree makes them automatically competent to do anything, especially teaching, and makes them better than most other people - so they resent not having any job they want handed to them on a platter. Quite often, on the contrary, a degree means that its owner has been bent, spindled and mutilated sufficiently by "the system" that he can easily conform to one of its narrow and uncreative 6lots of mediocrity. These are the sort of thongs the Moir committee will never deal with, because, as Arnold Moir himself said in Lethbridge last week, "We have no right to discuss things outside of the terms of reference set for us by the government." Statements like that show precisely what is wrong with the committee: it refuses to think for itself. Its members, particularly its leader, follow the outrof-date and utterly unrealistic idea that the government's pontifications are sacrosanct, that no one has the right to alter them, or criticize the government, even when conditions indicate the need for change. Even the government doesn't ask or expect such blind loyalty. Perhaps the most distasteful part of the committee's activities is that it relates indirectly to the actions of such misguided groups as the Committee for an Independent Canada- which, incidentally, presented the brief the Moir people seemed most receptive to. Until Canadians delude themselves en masse into thinking independence is synonymous with "100 per cent Canadian," and that independence means we cannot use the vast knowledge and machinery of the rest of the world, these movements will fortunately never get off the ground. Certainly, let's be Canadians. But let's be realistic about our size and our habitual standard of living. Let's put it all in the context of "Earth first," instead of becoming chauvinistic fools. Let's have committees which learn to use everyone else's knowledge and expertise to our own advantage, to (if we must) make ourselves better than them - even to the point of having half of our teachers coming from other countries. And let's be nice enough to accept new Canadians as equal partners, not second-rate interlopers. And if groups like the Moir committee and CIC want to join with the Canadian Intelligence Service in building the Great Wall of Canada to protect us from their foreign bogey men, I hope they move to the North Pole so they can build their wall in a circle.

UofL Players labor doing Man For All Seasons By JOAN BOWMAN Herald Entertainment Writer Sir Thomas More, intellectual, author, Lord High Chancellor and eventually Roman Catholic saint, was the most famous non-monarchical victim of the ruthless Henry VTII. That the University of Lethbridge Players has attempted a play which recounts the rise and fall of this complex English Renaissance genius is to the group's credit. Too seldom are Lethbridge audiences given the chance to see a locally-produced drama of such stature as A Man For All Seasons, the Robert Bolt drama centred on the tragedy of More. Unfortunately the Players' production, which opened its three-night run Friday at the Yates Memorial Centre, has fallen well short of its aspirations. The local show is a turgid, ungainly levelling, to a common low denominator, of More's intricate character, and of the bristling intrigue of life close to the Tudor monarch. Political affairs under Henry were as complicated as they were brutal. The nub of the play turns on the king's desire for a male heir and his manipulation of church and state to divest himself of the barren Queen Catherine. Although he brings most of the English Roman Catholic clergy to heel in the matter of his divorce from the unhappy Catherine and marriage to Anne Boleyn, he cannot gain positive acceptance to his actions from More, one of the leading political and judicial figures in his kingdom. More will accept Henry's new marital status alone, but he cannot accept it when it is tied to a rejection of the supremacy of papal authority. He attempts to remain silent on the entire matter, to stay true to his monarch within the bounds of temporal concerns, but Henry demands more than this, and More is tried, convicted and eventually beheaded. In attempting a Man for AH Seasons, the U of L players have taken to hand a cast of characters, any one of whom would make good theatre material. - Cardinal Wolsey; the profligate, clerical predecessor to More in the chancellor's job; Thomas Cromwell, an administrator and schemer whose major concern about religion is how it will affect the affairs of state; Archbishop Oranmer, the first archibishop of the reform' ed Church of England end a THANKS  KIMURA'S SPORTS  CJOC DRIBBLERS  CIVIC CENTRI GANG  SUPPORTERS From The U of L CHINOOKS "Canadian Junior Women Champions" HEINITZ PRINTERS & STATIONERS LTD. 324 9th St. S.

Directed by Brian Tyson of the U of L English department, the produciton allows Winstan Jones as More hardly any chance to contrast the contemplative, wry nature of the ill-fated chancellor with the exciting, brutal atmosphere of his contemporaries' political designs. The 14-member cast delivers lines as if read from a page. The 450 persons in the audience Friday tended to laugh at the wrong times because the most introspective lines and those most dramatic were given with the same flagging quality. Mr. Jones, although gifted with a commanding voice, seemed overpowered by others on stage, when in fact he should dominate them by force of mind and presence. Ted Orchard as Cromwell and Dan Bratton as Richard Rich were adequately reprehensible in their unprincipled wheelings and dealings, but neither suggested the force of will and of person with which the characters were endowed. Af- ter all, Rich may have had a strong shade of the lackey about him, but he was no limp-wristed dandy. Good moments in the play were provided by Gerry Grimes as the Common Man, George Mann as Norfolk, Nora Rose as Alice More, Robert Tarleck as Cranmer and as Chapuys, Awny Cassis, whose acting became more subtle and fine as the play moved along. Richard Finley as King Henry looked the role and had dimensions of the power-hungry king, but he couldn't quite capture the mercurial quality. And if one is to judge by Mr. Finley's acting, King Henry went through life with his arms akimbo. There was some clever use of the austere set, notably with slide - on panels which were enough to suggest numerous rooms and situations. However, the central stairs, leading to the top of two levels, were pretty much lost as an acting area. Often when characters had established an intimate working space, one would suddenly shatter the illusion by walking away across the stage. The cast and Mr. Tyson have worked tremendously hard on A Man for All Seasons1, and one admires them for this. But they, as yet, do not have a firm grasp on their play or the eternal More. Replacement of arena discussed Mayor Andy Anderson said following a closed meeting of city council Friday the city intends to negotiate the replacement value of the Lethbridge arena with the insurance firm. City Manager Tom Nutting said the city will call for estimates on what it would cost to replace the arena. He could give no figure himself at the present time, not until the estimates had been received. The city had previously released a figure of $273,000 as being listed in the insurance policy on the arena. Mr. Nutting said the city has insurance on all its buildings for. the full replacement value and the $273,000 figure was "not relevant" to the situation. Mr. Nutting added that council appeared to be favorably disposed to quick action on replacing the arena. A resolution on the matter would probably be presented at Monday's meeting of council, he said. Kinsmen give backing Mayor Anderson had kind words for the Kinsmen Club of Lethbridge, which had notified the city of the formation of a committee to "rally support from the community ... to obtain new ice facilities." The idea was "tremendous'', Mayor Anderson said, adding that the "enthusiasm and unity of purpose" shown by Lethbridge citizens was remarkable. Optimists add support The Lethbridge Optimists Club has thrown its support behind a drive for a new arena for Lethbridge. On Good Friday It is sponsoring the Hikes-for-Tykes walk. Proceeds not previously committed from the hike will be contributed to "the new arena for Lethbridge fund." The Lethbridge arena burned down in a flash fire March 12.
