LtTHuSiDGE, A Summer is coming, Be rendy -.vilh a Prescription Sunglasses. Students provide reasons why they will (or won't) go to U of L By RON CALDWEM., Ilcrald Sliiir Wrilcr KighLy p c r cent of soulli crn Alberta's r ,n dual j Grado 1 2 slu- dcnls do not plan lo allond llic University of Lethhridge, preferring in- j Ktcad other Al- hc'rl.a universi- ties or colleges a n fl universi- ties outside Ihe province. During Ihe next three days The Herald present a community by commu- nity sludy n[ llic students' own reasons for their deci- sions, Hie result a two- iveck Herald survey. ST1KMNG Ten students were inter- six plan to attend university while four will en- rol at the Lcthhridge Commu- nity College. Only one plans to to the U n i v e r sity of Lcthhrklge, while the other five say they "definitely will not go to the U of L." The lack of courses at the II of L was the reason most often tiled by students who have opted to go elsewhere. One plans to take engineer- ing at Brighnm Young Uni- versity. Another will attend Ihe University of Calgary for a commerce degree. Anollicr plans to begin at Riclis College in Idaho and perhaps transfer lo 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 Lethbriclge and I knew Edmonton was better." For the student who plans to attend Ihe U of L, the rea- soning was simple: "I plan to take education and the course here is as good as it is anvn'are PICTURE DUTTE 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 lo attend the U of L, one will go to the U of C and five lo Ihe U of A. Those who plan (o 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 five at home." "I can go to the U of without having to have two sciences One of those planning to attend the U of L said a transfer would be inevitable. "I plan lo lake pharmacy, so I'll probably go for Cal- gary or Edmonton after a year or Iwo." TI-O nf Ca'narv is gelling its sludenl "for no special reason, 1 jusl want lo go there." The U of A will be the big winner in Picture Butlc, mainly because of its labora- tory and computer science courses. None of the 11 students felt any special loyally 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 stains could be attached lo allending the U of L. "Too close lo home and not enough was an oftcn- repealed commenl aboul Lelhbridge. RAYMOND Fourteen sludenls were in- terviewed, nine of whom plan lo attend some post-sec- ondary institution. Three are headed for the V of L, tiro to the U o! A, three to the U of C and one One of Ihe three planning to attend I lie U of I; indi- cated a transfer lo Calgary will probably come in a year or (wo. Again, a lack of courses was cited as Ihe main rea- son sludenls were going away to university. Medicine, com- merce and industrial arts at- tracted students to Edmonton and Calgary. Education and proximity attracted one studenl to Lcth- bridge. "Jt lias a good education facully and it's close to home." student said (he U of L lias a reputation for good facully student rela- tions. Two o[ the studenls said they had a generally good impression of tile U of L bill the remainder had no feel- ings one way or the oilier. Five of eight university- hound studenls indicated thcv plan to attend the University of Lefhbridge while two plan to go to the University of Al- and one lo the Uni- versity of Calgary. All five U of L supporters said the cost of moving au'ay was the main reason they selected the U of L. Three of (lie five plan (o transfer after one or two years One of the students plan- ning lo attend the U of A said he never Ihouglil se- riously of going lo the locul university- Another said he was going to Edmonton be- cause lie couldn't take grad- uate work here. A third said he was going to Calgary be- cause the U of L doesn't offer compuler science. NOIlI.EFOItD Five of 13 students plan to altcnd university in the [all. Tiro mil go lo Ihe V of L, one Lo Ihe U of C and two to Calvin College in Michigan. "Close lo was the reason given by the two who plan to enrol al the local uni- versity. One student said she had a ncRativt impression of the U of L. "I hear they will be cutting staff and they seem lo have a lot of problems." One sludenl regarded the U of L as "our university." The remainder had no feel- ings on the matter. CARDSTON All nine sludcnts interview- ed said they plan to attend some post-secondary institu- liou 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 lo Brigham Young University. Again, the reasons lor at- tending the U of L centred around Ihe fact thai il is close Lo home cheaper. Ilimi'ver. une she was poinj; In I.

More Thursday. to get more tree screens A heavy planting of large trees on the west and smith, 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 lie Jail 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- partment of u r b a n design at Osaka Prctcclurc University, last visiled Lethbridge in 1966, when the garden was nearly completed. Belter integration of the gar- den with its environs was rec- ommended. Thus some of the new plantings will be outside the garden fence. A Iwder of lilacs on both sides ot the long sidewalk from the parking lot lo Ihe garden was recommended. Also Iliere should be u hedge belueen the walk and Henderson Lake, north of the main bridge. He recommended elimination nf all bare ground, and a re- duelion of the "manicure'1 ef- 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 conjunction with j parks super inlen dent Bill Brown and city chief building inspector Tosh Kanashiro, worked out a list of more than 20 changes, Mr. Shackle-ford sain. It is unlikely new plantings will be made Lhis spring. The report will be lurlher studied by the garden society directors and Mr. Brown's de- partment.

The board recently sought rccognilion of need from Iho Albert a School Buildings Board to build an addition to the school. The SDB not only withheld recognition of need but also re- classified Lakevieiv as a 17- room school, even though there are now 20 classes in the school. This means thai unless the decision is reversed, Grade G students at Lakeview will have to be bussed lo the Allan Walson Elementary School this fall, and Lakcview wilt provide only Grades 1 to 5. Trustee Bill Brown, obvious- ly irked at the SKIi decision, said Ihe appeal should ho against the existence of Ihe board, not jusl its decision "We should appeal the dis- ease not the he said. "We should flct the School Buildings Board out of our hair nr this type of will con-1 tiniie lo happen." Edmonton and Calgary have been designated by the SBB as i large enough to plan ils own' schools without. Ihe SRB. The hoard plans lo use the projected growth rate for the Lakeview area as one of the levers which wiU hopefully spring loose a more favorable decision from the School Build- 1 mgs Board. j In other business, the board approved a request from the city's preventive social ser- vices department for classroom i space for ils HcadStart and pic school handicapped pro- gram.
