Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 31, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 - THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD - Wednesday, March 31,1971 Full food service program available at LCC this fall The Lethbridge Community College food services department will offer the complete two years of a commercial food services cooking program this fall. The LCC board of governors Tuesday approved a submis- sion from Verlin Olsen, executive chef of the department, which outlines the two-year course in commercial cooking and food preparation industry. College President Dr. C. D Stewart said approval for the program was the responsibility Seek scholarships The Lethbridge Community College scholarships committee is still seeking 11 scholarships, says a report submitted to the LCC board of governors Tuesday. The committee had originally set itself the goal of several scholarships in each LCC school, and have found donors for all awards needed in business education. The school of nursing still needs one "major award" - $300 - as does the school of agriculture. The school of liberal education seeks a major award and two minor awards of $100, in journalism and radio arts. The school of technical-voca tional education needs a $300 award for its top student, $100 awards in automotives and in meat technology, and $50 awards in electrical appliances and welding. The board will lend its support to an increased campaign to find donors, and said it hopes the future scholarship awards it receives can be made permanent so they will be repeated each year. Most of the awards will be made at the Convocation ceremonies or at a special awards banquet. Chairman of the scholarships committee is K. L. Montgomery. PCs hook Horner for Taher meeting Dr. Hugh Horner, Conservative house leader in the Alberta legislature and MLA for Lac St. Anne, will be the featured speaker at the annual meeting of the Taber - Warner Progressive Conservative Association on Saturday.

March out like a lamb If you hear a strange whimpering sound at your door tonight don't worry, it is only the month of March departing. March was a rare month, spring visited southern Alberta at least four times, but didn't bother to stay around very long. The longest spring visit was seven days. From March 8 to March 15 we had temperatures in the high 40 - degree range. We also had temperatures of 11 below zero on March 1 and nine below on March 21. The high temperature for March was 56 degrees, record- CARPET and LINO (Complete Installations!) Free Estimates) No Obligation!

The cold arctic air which had dumped snow on central Alberta arrived in Lethbridge between noon and 2 p.m. Tuesday; overnight the Lethbridge area received three - quarters of an inch of snow, which is about .04 inches of precipitation. Today's high temperatures should reach 30 degrees, but the low could reach five or 10 degrees as the new warm air comes east and brings clearing Thursday's high temperature is expected to reach the 35 to 40-degree range. The high temperature recorded March 31 was 76 degrees in 1906 and the low was 8 degrees in 1936. of the board, and the Alberta colleges commission need not be approached. The college has already been offering a one-year course in the same program. He also said the Alberta advisory committee for the cook trade, to the Alberta apprenticeship board, has erally been co-operative in similar programs at technical institutes in Calgary and Edmonton. In both cases, the advisory committee reduces the length of time required for receipt of journeyman papers considerably for students completing the two-year course. Prospective journeymen with their diplomas can indenture themselves for 12 months or work full-time for six months, following graduation, and are then allowed to write their journeyman examinations. The new course will provide training in preparation of Canadian food, providing food with "eye appeal," and the financial and economic aspects of commercial cooking. Specific courses will include actual cooking, baking, sanitation and health, business knowledge, food theory, participation in the annual College Food Show, short order cooking, cooking specialties and food costing. Eight to 10 hours a week is spent by each student assisting in the operation of the LCC cafeteria and coffee shops, providing on-the-job practical training to students in the program. The board also decided to apply again to the Alberta' colleges commission for permission to operate a two-year baking program. The board applied for the program several years ago, and the results were, Dr. Stewart said, that "one arm of the commission approved construction of all the facilities and installation of all the equipment for the program, while the other arm of the commission told us we couldn't offer the program." The college board hopes the new application will settle the commission's confusion, so the commercial baking program could be offered in conjunction with other foods courses available. Hire-a-student given $100 The Lethbridge Community College board of governors has authorized contribution of $100 to the Lethbridge hire-a-student campaign. Hire-a-student will seek to find jobs through the Canada Manpower Centre and extensive advertising and employer-visitations for several thousand southern Alberta students this summer. It is a joint campaign of Manpower, the Lethbridge (and Canadian) Chamber of Commerce and educational and other institutions. 4 \ 11 ^ J* SPRING SING - Spring Sing is Sunday and the Anne Campbell Singers have been putting the polish on numbers for the annual songfesr.

EATON'S HEARING CENTRE Second Floor Dial 327.8551 cause the attitude of co-operation already existed in southern Alberta. Limiting growth also got some support from those questioned. They were simply asked what they felt about the city's size. Everyone, without exception, said it was about right. About 25 per cent volunteered the opinion that if the city grew too much larger they would seriously consider moving. A typical comment came from Joan Puckett, who has lived in the city four years. Mrs. Puckett said Lethbridge was large enough to have the amenities one expected in a city, but still small enough to retain a sense of community. She suggested this feeling, which allowed free movement between social classes, would be lost as the city climbed over the 50,000 mark. The city's population is about 40,000 at present. "Shorty" Hurst, who has lived here for 23 years, said he wouldn't live in Edmonton or Calgary "on a bet", but at the same time felt Lethbridge could use a few more tall buildings, particularly downtown and along Mayor Magrath Drive. This type of development would be preferable to car lots, he said. Mrs. Puckett decried the development of the Drive, pre-fering the "town" atmosphere it had in earlier days. Both of-1 fered the comment that the city should make efforts to retain some of the older buildings. Both mentioned Central School as one building that should be saved, even though it meant some expense to the city. Trees and parks were most frequently mentioned, along with the lack of traffic problems, as one of the most attractive features of the city. Mrs. Puckett noted that trees were a symptom of how people felt about the way in which they lived. As long as there are trees, she said, people have managed to resist the mechanical "robot" approach to urban living that is a part of the concrete and glass environment in larger cities. Lethbridge's bad points appear to be minimal. Mentioned were the smell of the stockyards, the housing situation and the wind. About half of those surveyed indicated that if they could live anywhere in the entire world, they would stay right here.
