Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 20, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Jerry Jjlana s A. E. CROSS WHERE EVERY THURSDAY IS "KIDDIES" DAY PHONE 327-2673 The lethbrulge Herald SECOND SECTION Lethbridge, Alberta, Wednesday, May 20, 1970 PAGES 17 TO 32 RESTAURANT AND PANCAKE HOUSE BANQUET FACILITIES FOR 75 PEOPLE NEW CHURCH UNDER WAY-Construction is moving ahead on the new Lethbridge Stake Centre of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The structure, being built on a five-acre site at the corner of 28th St. 5. and Scenic Drive, will replace the Staks centre destroyed by fire two years ago. Kenwood Engin- eering Ltd. is the general contractor for the building, expected to be completed by the end of this year. Co-Op Grocery Launches Drive Lethbridge Co-op Grocers Ltd. has launched a member- ship drive for its proposed new food co-operative. Hans Ellingson, grocery co-op president, said the deci- sion to proceed with the store plan was made after a recent feasibility study. Memberships are open to public purchase in multi pies, with total individual par ticipation of Interestec members wishing to invest ad ditional funds may purchase eight per cent debentures. Capital requirements are timated at between anc Colloquium Studies Has First Grad Lea Forczek, a University of Lethbridge student from Brooks, has become the firsl U of L Colloquium Studies student to receive a degree. Mr. Forczek will be granted his BA in art at U of L Convo- cation ceremonies May 30 at Southminster United Church. Because Colloquium students design their own programs of studies and attend no regular classes they are assessed on the basis of accomplishments rather than grades. New sys- tems of evaluation were de- veloped to decide whether or not his work warranted a de- gree. Mr. Forczek studied for time at Brigham Young Uni- versity, then attended an art institute in Los Angeles, before coming to the U of L to com- plete his degree requirements. He was accepted into the Col- loquium program last Septem- ber. The program InvoJves about 30 students, many of whom plan to graduate at the 1971 Convocation. A committee including bis four faculty advisors pro- fessors Mac Ginase and Herb Hicks, from the department of art, and Bill Latta (depart- ment chairman) and Paul Upton, of the department of English; Colloquium co-ordina- tor Martin Oordt, faculty mem- ber Job Kuijt and Colloquium student Morgan Gadd; plus artist-in-resadence Mary Caro- line Richards as an advisor, met to evaluate Mr. Forczek's work for the year. He submitted 70 slides of his paintings and sculpting com- pleted during 1969 1970, plus a large number of poems. In a 214 hour Colloquium Dis- cussion (similar to a master's degree oral examination) the committee quest i o n e d Mr. Forczek "to assess the deep- ness of understanding he had gained working on Ms art and poetry during the Mr. Oordt explained. The committee memb e r s then offered their evaluations, and all recommended he be granted a degree. Mr. Ocrdt compiled their rec- ommendations and comments into a report to the U of L arts and science studies com- mittee, which satisfied itself that the Colloquium commit- tee's recommendation was oased on sound evaluation pro- cedures and made the final recommendation to the arts and science council, which ap- proved Mr. Forczek's degree. CANADA'S FINEST The nine man provi sional co-op grocery board has suggested the funds could be raised in about two months. Mr. Ellingson, a retiree farmer, said: "With the avail ability in the Shopper's World Lethbridge, many people dis cussed utilizing the space for a co-op grocery. I thought the idea was excellent, so callec some of those interested am we proceeded to study the pos sibih'ties." The provisional board will be replaced by a permanent boan at a June meeting to be callei to review the activities of the project. The new co-op vrfll at this tune, remain" independent of other' co-ops in the area.

Million Cutbank Fire Bums School Fire demolished the gymna- sium of the Cutbank High School, Cutbank, Mont ana, early Wednesday, with a loss estimated at more than mil- lion. It Was the largest school gymnasium in Montana. The fire later spread to the nearby adjoining wing of the Cutbank High School library, home economics department, superintendent of schools of- fice, school trustees office and school classrooms. Fire, smoke and water dam- age was extensive. The Cutbank volunteer fire department was able to limit the fire 'to the gymnasium. Firemen were assisted by the Shelby and Cutbank Airport fire departments. Community school officials met this morning to. discuss the .mmediate needs and long plans for pther facilities. Graduation ceremonies will be held Tuesday at another lo- cation. It is likely all high school and junior high school classes will be suspended for the bal- ance of the school spring term. Cause of the fire has not >een determined. Golf Course Proposed For North Lethbridge City council last night gave approval in principle to a youth project submitted by Reg Turner, principal qf Win- ston Churchill High School. The project, which up until now has been sponsored solely by Mr. Turner, would -see a 100 acre golf course set up in North Lethbridge for the use of young persons between the ages of 15 and 25. Council was hot asked to sub- sidize the project in any way, but merely to indicate tliat it was willing to study a more de- tailed presentation seve r a 1 months from now. Some in- dication of support was needed, Mr. Turner said, in order that grass seeding operations could begin immediately. Mr. Turner, in his presenta- tion to council, expressed the Day Care Centre Okayed City council last night de- cided to stand by its decision to go ahead with a day care centre in Southminster United Church. Council's decision was based on the fact that a def- inite commitment had been made and that contracts had already been signed by the mayor. .Alderman Vaughan Hem- broff said that it would be dis- honorable to reverse the earlier decision, in view of the fact that a contract had been sign- ed. Aid. Jim Anderson, who drafted the motion upholding the contractual agreement, said that while he was not per- sonally in favor of the centre, he did agree with Aid. Hem- broff's position. Several delegations were heard concerning the need for a new day care centre in the city. W .E. Huckvale, represent- ing Costanzo's Day Care Cen- tre and the Kradle Keep cen- tre, outlined the reasons for his client's opposition to the organ- ization of any additional cen- tres in the city. There is no need, he said, for a subsidized facility when one of the present centres is not operating at full capacity. He also noted that the only survey available indicated the only need at present was for care of children in the six weeks to one year age group. Spokesmen for the proposed centre pointed out in their pre- sentation that it was never their intention to hurt the pri- vate operators, but they felt there was a need far another facility. One, particular need was felt to be that of widowed or di- vorced mothers who were forced to work hi order U> sup- port a family. They also point- ed out that the proposed centre would be more than just a baby sitting service oiid that educational services would be made available to the children. Council was also advised by AUister Findlay, city finance director, that the provincial government will not permit an expenditures on the centre until the status of the projec has been resolved. belief that excessive green fees and overcrowded conditions at the city's two golf clubs have excluded the younger golfer from participation. Yet it is precisely this type of activity, he suggested, that is society's best protection against moral decay and other less desirable activities. As outlined in the proposal, the club would be situated on 100 acres of land north of the CJLH television station. A sketch prepared by Mr. Turn- er shows plans for an 18 hole course, although the layout for the course has not been com- pleted. Cost of the project is esti- mated at in the first two years. Mr. Turner has sug- gested that contributions could be in cash or in the form of material or work. It might also be possible, ha said, to get contributions of from 18 organizations to build the greens, which could be named for the contributing group. This same also be extended Housing Plan Pushed Lethbridge city council wil make immediate representa tion to Robert Andras, federa minister responsible for hous ing, to present a brief in sup port of the need for feder; ;overnment low cost ownership lousing. Council last night passed a motion stating that the mayo or his appointed delegate should contact Mr1. Andras as soon as possible, and that the Alberta Housing Corporation of fer to proceed on low rental housing be held ir abeyance until a' decision is reached by the federal govern ment. City Backs Games Bid City council last night au thorized to prepare a pro- posal on the city's bid for the 1973 Canada Summer Games. The proposal would include a list of .those facilities needed 'or the city to host the games and for which federal govern ment aid might be available. Alderman Jim Anderson winted out that only by submit- tog a bid could the city fine out how much federal aid might cost the city. Bids must be submitted to the provincial government by June 15 and to the Canadian Amateur Sports Federation by July 15.

It was also pointed out by Aid.
