Summer '72 is broader in scope than last year's similar program, which created jobs. The program has been di- vided into several components lo help create more jobs for this summer. One division is the department of manpower and immigration. Students in Lethbridge seeking private jobs or employment in the various programs offered should apply to: Canada Man- power Centre for Students, 323 7th St. E., 328-8164. Some new programs offered by CMC are: an inter region- al summer employment pro- gram, which will enable students to work outside their home areas; a student immi- gration reception program un- der which students will be hired to assist immigrants after arrival; and an international student summer employment exchange program to provide jobs for students in 11 European countries. Another section is the Public Service Commission, which is ,-illing to find employment for those who have no definite line of work in mind. Jobs uill be available in var- ious federal government depart- ments across Canada. These are non career oriented jobs, mostly of a clerical or labor nature. Information can lie ob- tained from CMC. The Opportunities for Youth Program which began last year j has been expanded this year. It is expected create a total of positions. Although the deadline for the submission of OPY programs has passed, the CMC will slill refer student.'; lo groups who have obtained grants through the OFY program, and nro .socking students for participa- tion in their projects. of Ihe previous jobs mentioned could obtained through grants from the gov- ernment. The Student Enter- prise fund, however, is differ- ent in that a loan can be ob- tained to establish n profit- making operation. Al U r c w e r, district dc- j parlmcnt of youlll representa- tive for Ix'ihbriilgc, said all hud- gets that are suhmifled will he i-onsiderrd by a commiltee, Ihcn terms will be arranged ac- cording to logical backing and need. lie said if is important lo re- member thai the aid is n loan, and not n grant: ii must be repaid. of ex patients will suffer men- tal Without preventive education, more people will become men- tal patients. Hospital administrator Andy Andreachuk said, in replying to a question by CMHA executive officer Molly Mitchell, (hat he agreed it would be much bet- ter for the CMHA to continue its programs than for the Lelh- bridge Municipal Hospital's psychiatric ward to admit more mental patients and ex-patients. But as far as the hospital board's refusal lo give Ihe CMHA financial assistance is concerned, the decision was a right but reluctant one. To start with, there is no pre- cedent for a local hospital board to get directly involved in the financing of a voluntary organ- ization. And the LMH, unlike some other hospitals in the province, does not have social workers, who are supposed to be doing some ol the work the CMHA is doing. To lop it off, once (he hospi- tal board were involved in the CMIIA's financing, it would become a public service fund- ed with taxpayers' money, nnd there could be no rclurn to its present situation. 1'lvcn if the hospital board did give Ihe CMHA the it requested, it would go little dis- tance toward solving the CMIIA's financial dilemma. No one knows exactly how much the CMHA is going to raise if it withdraws from lha United Appeal. But according lo the performances of the Heart and the Cancer So- ciety, the CMHA should have no difficulty of raising its own. The question is, Mrs. Mit- chell pointed out, should tho CMHA withdraw from the TJm- led Appeal? And would the Uni- ted Appeal collapse after ma CMHA's withdrawal? On-again., off-again trial in cabaret assault off again The trial of six men charged with assault causing bodily harm which resulted from an incident at the El Ranclio Mo- tor Hotel cabaret March IB con- tinues on its on-again-off-again course. The trial convened in a spe- cial sitting of Lethbridge mag- istrate's court in the court house Monday morning, to be adjourned only 20 minutes later when a problem arose over the appointment of legal aid coun- sel for the two Americans in- volved in the charge. Court was told appointment of legal aide counsel Mich- ael Lee Swallow, 25, Topeka. Kansas, and Michael D. Wag- goner, 29, of Anchorage, Alas- ka, had been confirmed only five minutes before the trial. The first adjournment was granted to allow the newly ap- pointed lawyers time to inter- new their clients. The trial was resumed at 2 p.m. and evidence of the in- juries to Al Hober, manager of the-El Rancho, was presented by two local doctors. The trial was again adjourn- ed until Tuesday when the six men charged are to appear in magistrate's court at 10 a.m. to hear Judge L. W. Hudson's de- cision on a joint charge of causing a disturbance in a pub- lic place. At a.m. the six men are to return to the court hoiise where the trial for assault caus- ing bodily harm will resume. Swallow and Waggoner re- mained in police custody. The four Lethbridge men, Melvin Hobert Alexander, 19, Richard Burrows, 20, Alfred Louis Bloome, 25, and Charles Olson, 21, were allowed to remain free on bail posted from previous charges. During Uie afternoon session, all of the- separate charges against the six were dropped nnd a new charge naming all of them jointly for a charge of assault causing bodily harm was laid. Following the most recent ad- journment, defense counsel Boh Babki, who had defended nil of Chamber to meet Thursday The meeting the board of directors of the Letlib ridge Chamber of Commerce will bs held Thursday this week in- stead of Wednesday.

W. Hudson. The Crown last week had pub- licly criticized the number remands. Churchill plans benefit Winston Churchill High School j is holding a Benefit for Banff Wednesday at p.m. In th9 school.

Alberta las established a Summer Temporary Employment Pro- ;ram for students because of :he lack of sufficient job oppor- tunities for young people. This summer approximately students will be at- empting to obtain employ- ment in order that they might continue their studies. STEP will be co-ordinated >y a committee consisting of Dr. A. E. Hohol, minister of .abor and manpower; Horst >chmid, minister of cul t u r e, 'outh, and recreation; and R. V. Bowling as chairman, min- ister without portfolio respon- sible for tourism. The program has four main features. Private enterprise through- out the province will be en- couraged to hire more students. Approximately summer jobs will also be provided with- in existing budgets of various departments of the government. A number of projects located throughout the province will contribute to the well-being of Albertans, Implemented by var- ious departments, such as pollution control surveys, devel- opment of various recreational facilities and assisling in many northern and native communi- ties. The government will be pro- viding assistance to municipal- ities in the form of direct wage payments for municipal pro- jects which are judged to be worthwhile. The STEP program is not designed lo compete with pri- vate-sector jobs which students normally would find on their own. It is co-operating closely Kith the federal government Opportunities for Youth Pro- gram, and the student place- ment service of Canada Man- power. If job opportunities are still insufficient, the STEP program will be expanded, depending on the level of the problem. The government feels that with the direct employment which it will be creating and with the co-operation o! private industry and the federal and municipal governments, Al- berta will be able to improve significantly the level of em- ployment among students and young people this summer. 6D' Day ball planned A Garrison "Recognition" Ball, designed to pay tribute lo former members of Ihe Lcth- bridge Garrison, pre-war find up to the present, will be held in tho Lclhbridge Armories Juno 10.
