Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 8, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD fridoy, May 8, 1970 STUDENTS CLEAN UP PROJECT Henderson Lake's northeast comer was given a thorough clean-up Thursday by 128 Grade 5 students from Westminster Elementary School. Five teachers and a number of parents assisted with the clean-up, with barrels supplied by the city parks and recreation department. The students supplied their own clean-up equipment and paid their own bus fares to the site. The area chosen was the most-polluted, since prevailing winds blow all of the debris in the lake to the northeastern shoreline, and park garbage collects in the same part of the park. Men Laid Off At Packing Plants Social Welfare Program Popular With Students Social welf arc education, which the Alberta colleges commission does not currently allow the Lethbridgc Commun- ity College to teach, would be a popular immediate addition to the college's curriculum, ac- cording to LCC councelling di- rector Bill Harrison. Mr. Harrison, reporting to the LCC board cl governors Tuesday on his department's activities during the past year, said he or his two co workers has visited most of tha high schools in Lethbridge and dis- trict and guided about 200 in- terested students around the campus. "We noted a general lack of interest among the students we spoke to in taking technical or vocational Mr. Harri- son said. "The reasons are complex, but one of the main ones is an increasing idealism in social activities. "One thing they showed-sub- stantial interest in was a social services program, and they asked us constantly if we would be offering Mr. Harrison said. "With no exaggeration. I think we could have at least ICO students enrolling in social services courses if we were allowed to offer them this fall." Mr. Harrison added that many high school students he spoke to expressed concern over the relative lack of pres- tige college graduation status' would give them compared to a university student's bachelor's degree, even when the values of traininc would be similar. He said his office had helped more than 200 college students to get government financial as- Cleanup Project Having Troubles Canada Packers Ltd. in Leth- bridge has laid off 25 men as Lethbridge's two meat packing plants experience a decline in Students Leave For Ottawa Four southern Alberta Grade 12 students, Kathy Erdman, Lethbridge; Marlecn Cookshaw Lethbridge; Donna Murray, Coaldale; and Linda Allred, Cardston left for Ottawa today on the annual Hgtary sponsored Adventure in Citizenship tour.

Canada Packers' Plant man- ager Ross Held, said, "It is a problem of supply and demand which we hope will be tempo- rary." He said he thinks there will be no further layoffs. Canadian Dressed Meats Ltd. in Lethbridge is operating at about one-half capacity, said Archie Murphy, plamt manager. "It looks like we will have to lay cff about 15 men next week, said Mr. Murphy, and the situa- tion looks pretty grim at the moment."

Dr. 0. P. Larson, co-chair- man of the seminar, told cham- ber council the purpose of the session is to explore the exist- ing conditions in society which have educational implications for the future. He said the seminar would attempt to examine ways and means of promoting more ex- tensive community participa- tion in determining educational priorities. Dr. Robert N.

Lethbridge sanitation and waste department crews are still encountering difficulty in sticking to their spring cleanup schedule. An unusually large amount of rubbish this year has' made the pickup job ir.ore time con- suming than anticipated and crews have fallen about two days behind schedule. A spokesman for the city's engineering department said today he is not particularly concerned about the situation, adding that it indicates a thorough job is being done by city residents. Crews are now working to Zone 2, smith of the CP Rail tracks between 13lh St. and Mayer Magralh Drive, and probably won't be finished in this area until Tuesday. Work will then begin to Zone 3, south of the CP Rail tracks and east of Mayor Magrath Drive.

Power Out Caused By Pole Burning The western area of southern Alberta around Pincher Creek was without power last night for almost an hour. At about p.m. Thursday Calgary Power Ltd. had a pole burn off just west of Fort Mac- leod. A spokesman-for Calgary Power said this was probably caused by a leaky insulator which caused the wires to touch. Calgary Power also had a pre-arranged shutdown on another line at this time which also contributed to the difficul- ties. The pole burn off also caused frequency bumps in the Leth- bridge area at and p.m. Thursday. sistance, with the average award and the total grants amounting to Only 15 students were turned down, he said. Mr. Harrison said student visits to the LCC counselling offices had dropped off some- what since the offices .were moved into the new administra- tion building, where they are no longer centrally located. However, he said, a major factor in the decreased coun- selling useage was that much of the program assistance is now provided by the director of :he school in which the student Is enrolled. "But if the board wishes counselling to function as well as it has in the past, relocation is a Mr. Harrison said. "It is strongly recom- mended that (lie counselling lervice be relocated in the Kate Andrews Building for the next school year." In other matters, college president Dr. C. D. Stewart sold the board the situation is improving concerning LCC offered apprenticeship pro- grams. He and board chairman Jerome Robbins met Monday to Edmonton with Fred Whip- pie, director of the apprentice- ship board and with colleges commission officials to discuss the LCC programs. The college will send out special questionnaires to south- ern Albertan employers in co- operation with the apprentice- ship board, asking for informa- tion including the number of apprentices they have, the year of apprenticeship of each and what the most desireable time of year would be from their viewpoint for the school portion of the apprenticeship program their employees are n. From this information LCC will formulate programs and program times for' the appren- ticeship training it currently offers likely to last eight months per session, to co-op- eration with apprenticeship employers. The college will also be able to see from the survey what courses could be expanded to include the third and fourth year of apprenticeship train- ing (only the first two are now offered) and what other pro- grams are popular with stu- dents to the southern part of of the province.
