Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 12, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THE IETHBRIDOE HERAtB Tuesday, Moy 12, Indian, Italian Studeuls .Face Problems Canadians Require Inter cultural Education By GLENNIS Z1LM EDMONTON (CP) Cana- dians as a whole are no) aware of "what it must be like to be an Indian or a r.ewly arrived Italian kid in an all -w h i t e Canadian says David Wangler of the University of Alberta's intercultural education pro- gram. "T here arc ao great amounts of money expended, no special programs for teachers, and little research being done into the problem." Dr.- Wangler gives these reasons for the intercultural education program on the AI- bcrta campus. He's an assist- ant professor in the education department and co-ordinator of the intercultural program. The program is a "sort of cffshoot" of the education de- partment, but it offers no spe- cial credits. Students who sign up for it must be registered in the department of education, but also work in ether re- quired courses and spend tu-o s u m m e r s on intercultural field work. They are required to take special courses, including the study cf other cultures and other languages, and a course on teaching English wilen it is a second language. LETTER IS HELP "But there's no special credit for the intercultural program. At the end of the year, all the students get is a letter from the dean." Dr. Wangler said the letter is getting to be known in gov- ernment departments cf edu- cation and Indian affairs, however, and so it helps some graduates in jcb-huniing. "Of course, it doesn't mat- ter to a lot of them. They're idealists. They want to see improvements i n relations with Indians, with peoples of ether races." But Dr. Wangler said lie I would like to see the course get more recognition, become a credit course and be offered to a lot more students. "More students who are going into the educational field should have the same background these students are he said. "Many teachers go out a 'We knew what is good for you' attitude. Under this sys- tem a lot of Indian kids, fcr example, get wasted. They certainly can learn, but under tliis kind of treatment they don't learn." The ir.tercullural program aims to make students more aware of cultural back- grounds. People react differ- ently to situations when they have been raised in another culture, he said. MAKE MORE SENSE "There are ether ways of running things than 'our way.' Some cf thsm even. make more sense ten 'our way.' The intercultural program arranges s u m m e r "pracli- cums" or field trips for the students. The university ar- ranges for a student to live and work in an Indian, Metis or Eskimo community. "Any different cultural set- ting would do, but in Alberta it's practical to use these lie said. "We try to take the student out cf his cultu-e and stick him in a different culture. It gives him some feeling of what it is like for someone COOKING BY FEEL- Blind Rosemarie Grayley (left) with an assist from instructor Jane Teeter, is shown how to take her fresh ly baked custard from the oven at the Orien- tation Centre for the Blind, a state run scho ol at Albany.

Get What: Yon Want, Says Consultant 250 Consumers Attack Food Prices VICTORIA (CP) Organiz- ers were surprised recently when more than 250 men and women turned up for a con- sumers' forum and partici- pated in a free-swinging at- tack on food prices. It was about three times the number that officials of the forum, sponsored by the school board and the local branch of the Consumers' As- sociation of Canada, had ex- pected. The main message of the evening was: "Don't ham over your dollar until you ge what you want. Packaging and advertising came in for their share o, criticism, but the thrust of the message delivered by Lois Smith, a consultant with the federal department of con- sumer affairs, was that too often the consumer feels de- feated before wheeling a call down the supermarket aisles.

Phone 327-5771 "As an individual you can get satisfaction if you take back a disappointing product and insist on what you she told the audience. But, she warned, "there's no law that will protect us from our own gullibility." VIEWS AUE SHARED Her views were shared by E. L. Devlin, B.C. regional director of the food and drug directorate, who said there is a great deal of consumer prot- ection encoded in the laws of standards and grades, but "the consumer must learn to search it out." There is no greater weapon than Customer dissatisfaction, he told the audience. "The great supermarket hoax" was cited by Norma Mcriss, a former provincial government nutritionist, who defined the hoax as "the in- volved and meaningless infor- mation on packages." She showed the audience several articles, including a can with a full-color picture of spaghetti and succulent meat- balls. There were no meat- balls in the can. Another can sported a picture of slices of chicken, but inside were chopped bits and pieces. "There are 88 different lands of cereals in my mar- she said. "No woman has the; patience or guidance in the face cf this tremendous proliferation to know which is the best value. You just don't know what you're reading." An official of the Victoria Community Grocers Whole- sale Association said that re- gardless of what the cereal boxes say, the consumer "is paying for advertising and gimmicks." He said an eight-ounce box of corn flakes costing 27 cents means the consumer is paying what would amount to 50 cents a pound for a product that costs the manufacturer1 five cents a pound. "We are fooling ycu possi- he conceded, "but we are not misleading you. It's the consumer who will pay 10 times the value for a little whistle inside." Another wholesaler said he agreed the consumer is "get- ting but de- scribed wholesalers as "by- standers" in the price buildup. "The way to influence the price is he said, summing up the tone of the experts' advice: "Don't buy the product."

He said he sees a great change in the students over the time they participate in the courses. "These students are well qualified to work with Indian and other groups. They are all very sensitive. And they are all very angry about what the hell is being done to the na- tive peoples, to the blacks, to the 'others.' HELP WELFARE CASES The 30-year-old American professor came to the Univer- sity of Alberta after working in the United States with the "r.ew careers" program. This was a half-education, half- work program designed to help get people off welfare. He has visited and has great admiration fcr a model school on a Navajo reserva- tion in Arizona. "There, the Indian kids are given a chance to retain some cf thair own heritage. They have classes in the Navajo language. A medicine roan gives Kime cf the classes. The kids learn the ancient dances and folklore. They learn that they should feel good and proud of being Indian." Ho said that although there is a push now toward interna- tional educa- tion to have no there are special problems hi Canada that need to be solved. "In terms of Uie problems today in the province of Al- berta, especially in regard to Indian education, there should he a large, well-funded, pre- dominantly I n cii a n cultural program in the universities. "I'd like to see a push to- ward large numbers of teach- ers s p e c i a 11 y prepared to teach in Indian cf (hem Indians themselves. "But Indians here have a hard lime getting into univer- even whan they do get in they are in a hostile en- vironment where their culture is largely ignored." Women O.K. On Moon ST.

DEAR ANN LANDERS: Sometimes grandma's remedies are better than all the scientific discoveries put to- gether. The letter from the sleepwalker who was reluctant to take a trip for fear she'd show up in a hotel lobby at a.m. wearing her nightgown (or less) reminded me of a problem in our own family. Uncle Earle used to walk in his sleep. It worried Grand- ma to death the way Uncle Earle unbolted the door, let himself out of his room and walked all over the neighbor- asleep. One day Grandma hit on a bright idea. She had Grandpa build a small they used for. slopping the hogs, only lower. She filled the trough with cold water and put it alongside Uncle Earle's bed. He had to step in it to stand1 up. The cold waler awakened him at once and that put an end to his sleepwalking. Please print tin's if you think it will help Friend DEAR FRIEND: Grandma's solution makes sense. Other readers suggested cornflakes or popcorn strewn beside the bed where the sleepwalker would step on it. Any of (lie suggestions are worth a try. Confidential to Why Always Me? If you are not part.of the solution, you are part of the problem. Get with it and Stop passing the buck. Unsure of yourself en dates? What's right? What's wrong? Should you? Shouldn't you?
