In the Lelhbridge proposal, tha municipality is assembling the land, a private company is to build the entire complex and rent space for provincial gov- ernment offices. Replying to questions from Dick Gruenwald (SC Leth- bridge Dr. Backus said Woodward Stores Ltd. has been asked to create a leasing ar- rangement to accommodate the provincial government in the proposed complex, between 4th and 6th Avenues at the west end of downtown Letlibridge. The city has already assem- bled six square blocks of land to sell to the province and Woodwards for the develop- ment. "This is very definitely a de- parture from the process in the past it is one that we are looking at generally throughout the province with a view to en- couraging participation by local said the public works minister. Construction is to begin next year for occupancy by 1975, he said. The provincial government and Woodwards have agreed on Edmonton architect James Wensley, caid the minister "so that we can get co ordination between the two developments and, we hope, provide a more beautiful centre for the city." Deputy Public Works Minis- ter W. A. B. Saunders told the Herald a Lethbridge architect may also be involved in the de- velopment. He said Mr. Wens- ley' has only rlone preliminary plans and negotiations are still underway with Woodwards to determine the final plan. Dr. Backus said Woodwards has been asked to develop the .entire scheme and draw up a lease back arrangement to rent space to the province. Teachers., students at local school quit smoking The staff and students of a city junior high school have mutually agriad to quit smok- ing cigarettes on the school- grounds. During a school assembly mealing on Tuesday, Kendrick Smith, principal cf the Hamil- ton Junior High Schcol, asked his students "if I stopped smok- ing would you do llie same." The students and other staff members felt it was a positUe step and all agreed to follow suit. It all got started on Monday when four students were caught smoking on the school grounds. Under the regulations of the school board handbook, stud- ents are not allowed to smoke on the school grounds. If caught, the penalty is expul- sion. Mr. Smith said he took the problem home with him so as to come up. with a new ap- proach U> the smoking problem. The decision to involve him- self stemmed from not wanting to appear as an adult who told kids to quit a habit he failed to reject himself. He said Lhe result of Tues- day's assembly meeting is a "no-pressure" agreement be- tween students and staff. "I trust the staff and stud- ents to follow it he said. An added bonus to the quit- smoking agreement is that many of the students and staff members plan on using it as a crutch to quit smoking com- pletely. Mr. Smith said he's definitely going to make an effort to kick Ihc habit. About one-sixth of the stufcnts at Hamilton Junior High smoke. Oniy four of tha 34 staff members smoke. "It may fall flat on its chuckled Mr. Smith, "but it'i worth the try." :ilFF BLACK, Certified Denial Mechanic BLACK DENTAL MKICAl DENTAL BLDG.

But, the number of people experimenting with cannabis has probably not declined, Det.- Sgt. Bathgate said. "Mind you, some people who several years ago would have smoked pot are now drinking liquor because .of the reduc- tion in the age limit." If the number of people ex- perimenting with cannabis has decreased, Mrs. Jo-Ann Critch- fieid, a counsellor with the Al- berta Alcoholism' and Drug Abuse Commission, attributes it. primarily to lowering of the drinking age. "It's easier, to get high on booze. It's legal, and few peo- ple are going to go through all the hassles of getting busted when they can get a legal Mrs. Critchfield said. Both Mrs. Critchfield and Det.-Sgt. Bathgate singled out young people as the major of illegal drags, with Mrs. Critchfield adding that drug abuse is most prevalent in the schools. The drugs most commonly used by school students are LSD and liquid hashish, she said, but solvent sniffing is quite common among younger children. And despite the fact that many hallucinogens are repre- sented by the dealer as or mescalinc, Det.-Sgt. Bath- gate said at least 99 per cent of the hallucinogens sold are really LSD. "The younger element, 10 to 14 years old, are solvent sniff- ers. They don't have the money for any other drug, and it's easier to get hold oE solvents because they probably don't know the contacts to get Mrs. Critchfield said. "There must be something terribly wrong with the lives of eight or 10 year-old kids who are sniffing glue. I just can't believe that young kids would have problems that would give them the need for a she said. Part of the reason for juven- ile drug abuse lies with fact that "we live in a completely V of L canoeing class set for interior B.C.

Prior to the trip, students are prepared for the expencoco with canoeing lessons and ba- sic methods of wilderness sur- vival. A. D.

Gov't refuses funds to college for arena By RICHARD BURKE Herald Staff Writer The college has been told no :ur.ds are available from the >rovince to contribute toward he cost of the Canada Games Sportsplex at least. for the time being Talks are continuing, how- ever, between LCC and city Iciais to come up with a joint- use philosophy for the facility. Following a rnraeting Tuesday between a committee of city council and college representa- tives, LCC President C.D. Stew- art told The Heralti he is still hopeful the college will get funds from the province. Cost estimates for a new sports facility for the college have been worked out as have estimates for the college's joint- use with the city of the Sports- plex and the comparisons are known to the department of ad- vanced education. But, the province will not commit any funds at this time. Aid.

In a new program just in- itiated, Alberta Minister of Ag- riculture Hugh Korner has au- thorized the purchase of dairy animals for Alberta producers. The first shipment of animals is expected to arrive this week. It will go to an Iron Springs farmer. Dr. Horner said the major- ity of tlie animals are allocated for Southern Alberta. He said an announcement wasn't made earb'er because it could have caused the price of the animals to increase. He said the purchase pro- gram is part of a totally new dairy program which will be announced in the legislature within the next few weeks. The animals being brought to Alberto include bred heifers, open heifers (not pregnant) and young heifers. Because of the lack of pub- licity regarding the purchase program, local dairy farmers are waiting for official an- nouncement. One producer said the reason for the program is a drastic shortage of milk supplies throughout the province. Several milk producers from Southern Alberta have started shipping to Calgary to help al- leviate the shortage in that city.

One prospect is for the col- lege to rent the arena for its athletic programs, Aid. Hem- broff said. The city is not prepared, though, to build more facilities into the arena with the expec- tation those facilities will ha rented in the future, he said. The college can still get in- volved before the arena Is com- pleted either through funds to- ward the main construction costs or llirough funds for ad- ditional facilities, such as a rifle range or an extra basket- ball floor, Aid.

The architects, Phillips, Bar- ratt, Hillier, Jones and Part- ners, will not tender all parts of the arena at once and could accommodate additional facilities such'as the rifle or track surface while construc- tion is in progress, he added.
