LETHBSiDGE, ALGERIA Summer is coming, [ie rcndy with a p-iir of Prescription Sunglasses. Students provide reasons why they will (or won't) go to U _________ s. nn Onn nf ihc three planning plan to attend (he University "Close jo home" was the Ily RON CALDWEM., Ilcralil Stuff Writer Eighty p e r cent of south crn Albcrlu's gradual ing j Grade 1 2 stu- dents do not plan to attend the University of Lethhridge, preferring In- stead other Al- j berta universi- ties or colleges a n universi- ties outside the province. During the next three days The Herald will present a community by commu- nity study of the students own reasons for their deci- sions, the result of a two- week Herald survey. STIIIUNG Ten students were inter- viewed; six plan to attend university while four will en- rol at the Lcthbridge Commu- nity College. Only one plans to go to fhe University of Lethbrklge, while the other five say they "definitely will not go to the U of L." The lack of courses at the U of L was the reason most often cited by students who have opled to go elsewhere. One plans to take engineer- ing at Erigham Young Uni- versity. Another will attend the University of Calgary for a commerce degree. Another plans to begin at Ricks College in Idaho and perhaps transfer to the U of L in a "year or two." A University of Alberta- bound student said, "I had a choice between the U of A and Lcthbridge and I knew Edmonton was better." For the student who plans to attend the U of L, the rea- soning was simple: "I plan to fake education and the course here is as good as it is anvn'am e'-r PICTURE BUTTE Eleven students were inter- viewed, nine plan to attend university while one will go to SAIT in Calgary and one to the LCC. Three plan to attend the U of L, one will go to the U of C and five to the U of A. Those who plan to attend the U of L offered a variety of reasons for their decision. "I am going into media work and there are fewer people using the equipment in a smaller university." "It is easy to drive back and forth to, I can go there and live at home." "I can go to the U of L without having to have two sciences." One of those planning to attend the U of L said a transfer would be inevitable. "I plan to take pharmacy, so I'll probably go for Cal- gary or Edmonton after a year or two." T'-O of Calrtarv is gelling its student "for no special reason, I jusl want lo go Ihere." The U of A will be Ihe big winner in P i c I u r e Bulte, mainly because of its labora- tory and computer science courses. None of the 11 students felt any special loyalty or iden- tification with the U of L. Four said they had a positive impression while the remain- der had no impression at all. No one felt any status could be attached to atlending the U of L. "Too close to home and not enough was an often- repealed comment about Lcthbridge. RAYMOND Fourteen studenls were in- terviewed, nine of whom plan to attend some post-sec- ondary institulion. Three are headed for Ihe U of L, Iwo to the U of A, three to the U of C and one to T r-r- One of Ihe three planning to attend the U of 1- indi- cated a transfer to Calgary will probably come in a year or two. Again, a lack of courses was cited as the main rea- son studenls were going away to university. Medicine, com- merce and industrial arts at- tracted students to Edmonton and' Calgary. Education and proximity attracted one student to Leth- bridge. "II has a good educalion facully and il's close lo home." Another student said the U of L has a reputation for good faculty student rela- tions. Two of the students said they had a generally good impression of the U of L but the remainder had no feel- ings one way or the other. COALUALE Five of eight university- bound students indicated thev plan lo attend the University of Lethbridge while two plan to go to the University of Al- berta and one to the Uni- versity of Calgary. All five U of L supporters said the cost of moving away was Ihe main reason they selected the U of L. Three of the five plan to transfer after one or two years. One of the studenls plan- ning to attend the U of A said he never thoughl se- riously of going lo the local university. Another said he was going to Edmonton be- cause he couldn't lake grad- uate work here. A Ihird said lie was going to Calgary be- cause the U of L doesn't offer compuler science. NOBLEFORD Five of 13 students plan to attend university in the fall. Two will go to the II of L, one lo Ihe U of C and two to Calvin College in Michigan. "Close to was fhe reason given by the two who plan lo enrol al the local uni- vcrsily. One sludent said she had a negative impression of Ihe U of L. "I hear they will be culling staff and they seem to have a lot of problems." One sludenl regarded the U of L as "our university." The remainder had no feel- ings on fhe mailer. CARDSTON All nine students interview- ed said they plan to attend some post-secondary institu- tion in the fall. Three indicated a prefer- ence for the U of L, one plans to attend the U of A, one the Lethbridge Community College and four will go to Brigham Young University. Again, the reasons for at- tending the U of L centred around the fact thai il is close lo home and, cheaper. However, one stnii-i.1 vaid she was poing I" of L because s h e rewarded it a-. "the university for ;i. Impressions v.'err: v n r i e d but most said they had a pisitive feeling about the I! of L. "Friends I've talb'd lo say the Claris MHMII is really said dent. Another, however, taid be has been advised by a 01111- sellor that "f would in: jn.-t. wasting my time going then1. 1 can get bettor programs 01 other places and sonic of the things I take in LM abridge might not be accepted in the bigger universities." A common r o ni p 1 a i n t among the students was that they feel the U of L could do a better job of informing them about what ihe univer- sity has to offer. More Thursday. more A heavy planting of large trees on the west and south, to screen the golf course and Mayor Magrath Drive from view, was the main recommendation of Dr. Tadashi Kubo, architect for the Nikka Yuko Centennial Garden, before he left ihe city. A. W. Shackleford, garden so- ciety president, said Dr. Kubo left a five-year program for improving the garden. The architect, head of the de- fect. Walk edges should be soft- ened. In many ways the gar- den should be made to appear more natural. Mr. Shackleford stresses Dr. Kubo was "greatly impressed with what has been achieved by the city in fulfilling the design of the Garden. Any additions will enhance the beauty which is already there." Dr. Kubo, in conjunclion with j parks super inlen denl Bill Brown and city chief building The architect ncau 01 me ue- nartment of. u r b a n design al inspector Tosh Kanashiro Osaka Prefecture University, worked out a list of more than last visited Lethbridge in 1966, 20 changes, Mr. Shackleford when the garden was nearly completed. Better integration of the gar- den with its environs was rec- ommended. Thus some of the new plantings will be outside the garden fence. A Iwrder of lilacs on both sides of Ihe long sidewalk from the parking lot to the garden was recommended. Also there should be a hedge between ihe walk and Henderson Lake, north of the main bridge. He recommended elimination of all bare ground, and a re- duction of the "manicure" ef- II is unlikely new planlings will be made this spring. The report will be further studied by the garden socieh directors and Mr. Brown's de- partment.

The Lethbridge public school board will bar- gain locally with teachers, with- o u t the Lcthbridge-Medicine at School Authorities Associa- on. The board approved the move uesday night despite a last- inule plea from the public ard in Medicine Hat that ey stay in the association- Dr. Bo'b Gray, who represent- I the public' board in Med- ine Hat on the four-man bar- lining committee, express- 1 concern this morning over ic fulure of Ihe association. "I think this will break up ic entire association. I don't link the three of us thai are eft will bargain he aid. Jim Anderson, chairman of le Medicine Hat public school oard said he was "most dis- ppoinlcd and quite surprised" o learn of Ihe decision by the Lethbridge board to withdraw from the association. "II was the public board in Lelhbridge that wanted to starl the associalion last year. Now they have jumped out and left us up in the said Mr. An- derson. The Lethbridge public board represents nearly half of the teachers in Ihe Iwo cities. Now that the decision has been made, the Lcthbridge board will return to local bar- gaining with the teachers il em- ploys. In past years the public and separate school dislricls in Lethbridge have unofficially bar- gained together. Representatives of the teach- ers and the board have held several meetings recently lo draw up guidelines for the up- coming negotiations. One of the provisions listed in the guidelines says that, should the appointment of a bargain- ng agent become necessary, neither side will call in pro- 'essional negotiators from out- side the school district. Joe Lakey. principal of Fleet- wood B a w d e n Elementary School has been named as the ATA representative in the ne- gotiations. The presence of professional negotiators on the teachers' side of the bargaining table in past years was the main rea- son the four school hoards in Lcthbridge and Medicine Hat joined forces for the purpose of collective bargaining. The current agreement, with the teachers expires at the end of this year and it is expected that both groups will now throw their well-oiled negotiation ma- chinery into h i g h pear in an effort to reacli a new contract before the present one runs out. oard will appeal school addition "They told us that this what we will have to pay the: he said. This is about the goin rate for consultants. A consu ant received for conduc ing a two day workshop at t University of Lcthbridge r ccntly.'1 Dr. Eevan said the success of the workshop depends on the guidance supplied by the con- i sultanls. The provincial government iwill finance 70 per cent of tiie icost of the workshop. i The workshop will be held i July 24 to Aug. 11. The Lethbridge public school board will appeal a provincial government decision which has nrown a monkey wrench into plans for Lakcview Elementary School. The board recently sought recognition of need from the Alberta School Buildings Board to build an addition to the school. The SBB not only withheld recognition of need but also re- classified Lakeview as a 17- room school, even though there are now 20 classes in the school. This means that unless the decision is reversed, Grade 6 students at Lakcview will have to be bussed to the Allan Watson Elementary School this fall, and Lakcview will provide only Grades 1 to 5. Trustee Bill Brown, obvious- ly irked at the SBB decision, said the appeal should be against the existence of the board, not just its decision. I "We should appeal the dis- ease not the he said. "We should get the Schoo Buildings Board out of our hair or this type of thing will con- tinue to happen." Edmonton and Calgary have been designated by the SBB as large enough to plan its own schools without, the SBB. The, hoard plans to use Ihc projected growth rate for the .akeview area as one of the evers which will hopefully spring loose a more favorable decision from the School Build- ings Board. In other business, the board approved a request from the city's preventive social ser- vices department for classroom space for its HeadStart and pro school handicapped pro- gram.
