Mr. Stewart said when it Is discovered the student Isn'l learning, the blame is placed on genetics or the home vironment when the real culprit is the school for not teaching (he student what he had to know.

Lethbridge Provincial Judge A final show of winning per- formances and the presentation of trophies and scholarship money brought the 1972 Leth- bridge Kiwasis Music Festival to a close. This year, for the second lime in the 42 year history of the Lethbridge Kiwanis festi- val, the Festival of Stars was divided into two concerts, the junior stars, Thursday n i g h I, and the senior stars, Friday. During the two evenings, 23 trophies and more than Jl.OOO in scholarship money were pre- sented to winning Lethbridge and district competitors. A special presentation was made Thursday night to Janet Larson for her work with the festival and on Friday, Dr. SDyward Smith was given a life membership In the Cana- dian Music Festival Federa- tion. Thursday's concert compris- ed the presentation of junior and school awards, plus 19 per- formances by the younger art- ists. Senior awards and 16 will' ning performances were pre- sented Friday before an almost full Yates Memorial Centre. Persons participating in both concerts were chosen by the sli adjudicators and performed the numbers they did during regular competition. L. W.

Speakers for the classes will Include Judge Hudson, a repre- sentative of the attorney-gen- eral from Lethbridge, a repre- sentative from the Alberta Al- coholism and Drug Abuse Com- mission and a city police offi- cial. Each discussion class will be moderated by Bill Skitch, court alcoholism counsellor from the department of the attorney- general at Calgary. Mr. Skitch 'told The Herald Friday that in addition lo the six persons placed on probation by the court, he expects lo have the course attended by 14 persons who had been convict- ed of two or more impaired driving or related offences. "In both Calgary and Edmon- ton the provincial department of highways has notified per- sons convicted of two or more offences related to alcohol and driving, in a letter, that their driver's licence suspension would continue unlil the im- paired driver's courses was he said. Available statistics seems to indicate the course works well.

Mr. Olson's home riding is Medicine For more than a week, OFT officials in Ottawa, Calgary, Edmonton and Jasper have been promising The Herald a list of successful southern Al- berta OFY applicants. OFY-people in Alberta claim to he "beside themselves" in not knowing why the OFY grants for most of Western Canada have, not been an- nounced while heavily popu- lated Quebec and Ontario were announced some time ago. An imaginative array of rea- sons for the delays have been handed to the media in Alberta by Ottawa officials with ex- ception to Medicine Hat. A Lethbridge based provin- cial department of youth spokesman says, some ap- proved projects are endangered because of the lack1 of in- formation about the grants.
