S. _ LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA Summer ii coming. Be ready with a pair of Prescription Sunglasses. Provincial requirement Fourth in a series Rosalia House still needs to get grant By RUDY IIAUGENEDUH Herald Staff Writer Conr u s i o n reigns in h c minds of most regarding I. h c difference be- tween a half- way house and a hostel lype of operation. The first step towards helping the needy, transi- ent, and temporarily home- less is a hostel, which can be described as a crash pud where people slay for a day or two. A hallway rcliabililaiive type o[ centre is a place where people stay for weeks and months m order to reject their old, anti-social habits and adopt more acceptable values. Tn Lelhbridge last year, nearly 300 women spent at least one night in city police cells for breaking the usually for drunkenness. Of those, one-third were for- mally charged and usually sentenced to short jail terms. Experience shows that most of these are or will be re- peaters, and thereby cost the taxpayer enormous sums of money to keep them off the streets. Based at the Lethbridgc Friendship Centre, the Com- mittee for Rosalta House a small group of concerned citi- zens is trying to set up a halfway house for women. The group has liad "indi- cations of support" from vari- ous city groups which will contribute money towards the project after it is an entity. "But ntt written commit- ments for support before that seems their common qualification. The Rosalia House Commit- tee requires at least or 25 per cent of its total ob- jective before it can approach the provincial government for the rest. To date it lias collected about 10 per cent of the re- quired amount. Once established, Rosalta House would "be a liaison be- tween women rehabilitating themselves and other agen- cies and resources working towards rehabilitating Iheni The purpose of the centre is to establish a rehabilita- tive focus for all women 18 years old and over, with an alcohol or drug problem. It will provide the neces- sary tools to make them "self-supporting and useful citizens." The women will be screen- ed to assess their sincerily for rehabilitation. Rosalta House would pro- vide food, shelter, clothing, counselling and a home at- mosphere. Assistance will be sought from existing resource peo- ple available in the commun- ity to help solve Ihe prnli- lems of the centre's resi- dents. Counsellors and a house mother would supervise Ihe centre and its residents. The women will engage themselves in home duties as soon as they are "physically and mentally able to do so." In this situation they will he encouraged to learn those things that will help them find employment upon reha- bilitation, making them bet- ter mothers, wives and house- keepers. Their genera? interests will he broadened "so they will be able lo cope with future difficulties and leisure time.1' Former halfway house res- idents will be allowed, at any lime, to return to the centre and ask for advice, or just tall; to someone. the coun- sellors or house mother. Unless Lethbridge obtains a halfway house, the women who need it will continue to be beaten and mistreated by society. The establishment of an open lo both sexes drop-in hostel in Lethbridge Is much of the answer towards reduc- ing jail costs and making the streets a safer and more aes- thetic place to walk. More Saturday. '1. AMA will test car exhausts A unique Alberta Motor As- sociation ant i-pollution pro- gram directed at harmful motor vehicle exhausts will start in Lethbridge at the Col- lege Mall Shopping Centre at 6 p.m. today and continue through Saturday. The program, called Count Down to Clean Air, consists of a mobile exhaust emissions test unit which determines the amount of carbon monoxide and unburned hydrocarbons emitted in vehicle exhausts. Count Down was initiated at Edmonton in mid-April. The testing machines mea- sure the emissions by drawing sample's of (he exhaust from the vehicle's tail pipe. A result sheet will be pro- vided each vehicle owner after the 60-second test. The sheet will tell the driver his ve- hicle's exhaust emissions com- pare with the accepted stan- dard for vehicles of the same and particular make, model year. In most cases, excess emis- sions of hydrocarbons may ho corrected with minor carbure- tor adjustments, Don Carlson public relations director for Ihe AMA told The Herald. The Count Down program ccnsisls only of exhaust emis- sion (csls. No repairs or ad- justments wil he made on par ticipants1 vehicles. Information from each test will he gathered, sorlcd lo pro- vide; information about Ihe year, inake. model and engine size of the oar, and finallv fed into the AMA computer. Col- leclivc results of Ihe lesls will he made public. He stressed no record of li- cence number or names of ve- hicle owners will be recorded and repail-.s and adjustments will be lett to the conscience of each driver.

STUBBS All well-taught students per cent By RON CALDWKLL Herald Staff Wriler Teachers are not doing their job unless every student scores 100 per cent on the course, said Don Stewart lo teachers attend- Daylight saving saving time? It appears one operator at the city power plant has the wrong idea about daylight saving liine. At ahout this morning, he pulled the sxvitch and left half the cily uilhoul lights for a short period of time up to three minulcs in some places. An uninformed source spec- ulated the operator had been told daylight saving time means more daylight and less need for artificial light, so the artificial lights were turned out to test Ihe theory. The test failed and the power restored. ing a two-day seminar at the Le'.hhridge Community College. 31 r. Stewart, a California educator, said he will not allow students to leave a course un- less (hoy hare reached Ihe 100 per cent level. And, he tests on the entire course, not just cer- tain parts of it. "If you allow a student to continue after learning only part of a course, (hen pretty soon he will reach a level where he can't learn said Mr. Stewart. "When teachers establish a simple passing grade they are saying anything beyond that le- vel isn't really important. If it is not important, they shouldn't he leaching it if it is impor- tant, then they should make sure sludenls learn it." Mr. Stewart said parents should have the right to sue teachers and school boards for malpractice. "When you give a student who reads at the Grade 5 level a Grade 10 level textbook, then you arc ensuring that he will not learn.

It is not genetics, it is profes- sional (teacher) Mr. Stewart maintains that Iraditional education is based on deception and trickery. He says feac'ners don't tell the students what they wan( them to Jearn, and then fail them when they don't learn it. "Teachers should spell out exactly what they want the stu- dents to learn rather than hid- ing it from them until test Lime. "Instead of looking at the test grade, the teacher should look at what was missed and leach it again until the student knows it." Re said the "trickery" con- cept comes into play in such things as multiple-choice ques- tions. Teachers purposely huild in phrases or words that are de- signed In confuse and trick slu- dents so they won't get the right answer or trick them so they do get the right answer whether they know it or not.
