Photo by Walter Kerber Six spring graduates in college program 'Excellent' future for agriculture school By JIM WILSON Herald Education Writer Future potential is excellent for the Lethbridge Community College school of agriculture, says Dr. R. David Clark, the school's director. Dr. dark told the LCC board of governors Tuesday in his annual report that 35 students enrolled, mainly from southern Alberta, but six dropped out before the end of the fall semester. Six students will receive their diplomas in agriculture at the college convocation ceremonies this spring, having completed four semesters' work. Dr. dark said the school's extension to 12-week from 10-week semesters had made it possible to thoroughly cover Just Like Mom Makes at Homel SPECIALS Prices in effect Thursday, Friday and Saturday Onlyl Cherry Layer Cakes..........�.h 75c Parkerhouse Rolls ....... ... dozen 49c Cinnamon Twist Buns ..... 6for 41c Raisin Scones ... 6for 27c OPEN ALL DAY WEDNESDAY!

More full- time permanent agriculture faculty will soon be needed, Dr. Clark said, if the school's programs are to be extended.

School director Dr. R. David Clark appended the students' report to his annual report to the board. The students expressed satisfaction in almost all of their courses, although they questioned the validity of some of the laboratory work in soils course and criticized as "too deep" parts of a field crops course. They strongly approved a public speaking course, and some students thought it should be made compulsory in the over-all agriculture program. The students offered Dr. Clark five recommendations: -That more optional courses be made available, and that a few of those now compulsory be made optional; -That the possibility of specialization in certain fields be achieved at LCC as quickly as possible (at present it is not possible to specialize in any agriculture programs due to small enrolment); -That the total number of hours in each course from the EASTER FOR . . .

Next Tuesday's ceremonies will include a tour of the plant, the official opening and a press reception at Sven Ericksen's Family Restaurant. OUR OSCAR commission - and a natural offering in southern Alberta-was not taught this year due to lack of sufficient interest. He said he hopes it will be offered this fall, and he has been working to publicize it. Dr. Clark said he was "particularly optimistic about the possibility of offering more short "courses of two to four week duration, planned around peak farm operating times." He said such courses could be designed to fall into place in a full two-year diploma program which farmers could acquire if they desired. The main purpose of the courses, however, would be to provide southern Alberta farmers with instruction in special areas of farm management and farming techniques, which could be taken at times when farm workers did not have to be in their fields. Dr. Clark said a transfer arrangement has now been negotiated with the Olds Agricultural College so that LCC agriculture students may transfer to Olds to pursue areas of special interest. Credit will also be given to LCC students for agriculture courses taken at other agricultural colleges in Alberta. The school is also co-operating with the LCC school of continuing education to offer agriculture courses in the evening. Future possibilities include agricultural mechanics, management, irrigation development and other special areas of southern Alberta interest. Dr. Clark said he is also encouraged by the Tradition and Rem "With the town of Taber having an accumulated surplus of nearly one and a half million dollars, perhaps they might consider lending it to Lethbridge for a new arena - at three por cent of course."

No snap decision on arena plans A snap decision on replacing the Lethbridge Arena apparently will not be made. Deputy Mayor Rex Little said Wednesday city council would not be in a position to act on a proposal to bulid a new arena in the Exhibition Pavilion until more information had been received. The Lethbridge and District Exhibition Board has suggested the arena be put in the pavilion at a cost of $300,000, with a $470,000 extension to the pavilion to accommodate other activities now booked into the pavilion. The arena would be available to the city on a 15-year lease at $85,000 a year. Deputy Mayor Little said that while the idea had merit, council had to have a better Psychiatry department turned down It is expected the Lethbridge Municipal Hospital board will rescind a recent motion establishing a full department of psychiatry, Frank Russell, board chairman, said in an interview. Through a misunderstanding, the board established the department before the medical staff had voted oa a recommendation by its executive council calling for establishment of a full department. At a Thursday meeting, three days after the board approved establishment of the full department, the medical staff voted the proposal down, a medical staff spokesman said. Some of the staff felt nothing would be gained by establishing a separate department of psychiatry at this time, he said. Psychiatry now is a division of the department of medicine. A 21-bed psychiatric unit is to be established at the hospital by the end of August. Mr. Russell said the board will likely rescind its motion at the next board meeting, now that the misunderstanding has been clarified. Psychiatry will continue to operate under the department of medicine. picture of the over-all situation before making a decision. There were other proposals under consideration, he said, that required further investigation. He added that after the city't experience with secondary sewage treatment faculties, council would probably look very closely at estimated costs before acting. Sewage facilities costs rose from less than $3 million to $4.6 million by th� time the project actually started construction. It was his understanding, he said, that a committee being organized by the Kinsmen Club of Lethbridge would be setting up a fund to receive, donations toward a new arena. An organizational meeting of the committee is to be held April 7. Jim Bole, Kinsman spokesman, said it was the club's intention to set up an inter-club council that would be responsible to no one organization. Nine clubs had attended a previous meeting, he said, and two more had shown interest. The council would be ready to act when city council made a decision on a new arena, he said, regardless of the type and location of the new facility. Leo Grudniski, president of the Optimists Club of Lethbridge, , said that while the question had not been discussed with the club, it was his personal opinion that a more central location would be preferable to the exhibition grounds. The Optimists had pledged a portion of the proceeds from their April 9 Hike for Tykes to the fund in the hope that others would follow suit, but the situation appeared to be fairly static, he said.
