Society seeking A delegation from the South- ern Alberta Native Friendship Society approached city council Monday for an interim grant but will have to wait un- til late tliis afternoon for a de- i cision. i The Lethbridge Friendship Centre has been closed since 7 because the senior levels of government have not al- I located Uie funds for operation of the centre. Acording to Dr. Bob Kasting a spokesman for the centre, those funds may not be forthcoming until mid-June. The society has asked the city for the grant to pay Ihe salary of a director and to pay some bills until the provincial and federal funds arrive. The centre has budgeted for a expenditure this year, not including the the city pays for rent fo the building. developed after the board of governors scrapped the old ono due to dwindling enrolments. Enrolments in journalism had been below par for the past three years, and the board de- cided the course had to be changed. "We obviously couldn't con- tinue to operate the course in the same said Dr. C. D. Stewart, LCC president. Tom O'Hanlon resigned from his post as the only journalism instructor shortly after the board axed the course. Dr. Stewart said "there were a number of reasons for can- celling the course." In addition to the enrolment situation, there have been indi- cations that the board was un- happy with the type of instruc- lion offered by Mr. O'Hanlon. The new committee will seek out the opinions of newspapers in southern Alberta concerning their needs and expectations of the LCC journalism course. Dr. Stewart said he expects a new course of studies will be ready for the fall.
