STUBBS First aid is a subject we've found that many of our friends and customers don't like to think or talk about. A recent survey found however that an average of only lone home in eighi could shew a first aid capa- bility equipped to take care ol even ordinary e m e r gencies ___ Most people did have band aids, fever thermo- meters, adhesive tape and a burn aid, but few were able to show cotton swabs, sizeable bandages or turniquets. Oddly enough almost 40% to 50% didn't have gargles or antihistimines of any type. For ycon: own (and your family's) sake please give this some though and be >repared.

Information tabled in the legislature showed there are no contracts issued to handle any government advertising. Nor is government advertis- ing handled on a tendering basis.

Phone 327-6565 The Southland Nursing Home and the Lethbridge Auxiliary Hospital are seeking eight stu- dents to provide additional ser- vices to patients this summer. The students selected for the three-month jobs are to provide recreational diversion activities for the patients, a service not normally provided to the ex- tent of this summer's program. Students seeking the positions must be 18 years old or have senior matriculation or a high school diplima. Applications now are being accepted by the directors of nursing at both in- stitutions. The work week is 40 hours for the duration of the program. The project, organized in con- junction with Manpower's stu- dent temporary employment program, is scheduled to run June 1 to Aug. 31. A balanced schedule of fees for all Alberta colleges was sought at Calgary Thurs- day by officials of the Leth- bridge Community College. The fee structure will be considered by delegates to the Alberta Association of College Administrators con- vention, of which LCC presi- dent Dr. C. D. Stewart is chairman. Current college fees will be outlined to the convention by Pat Webb, executive assist- ant to Dr. Stewart at LCC. Dr. Stewart says students are being jeopardized by the current variety of rates. He says fees at Alberta colleges, for identical courses, vary as much as to per semester. "We've had a little diffi- culty with fees because we have Courses which are simi- lar to those offered at the Northern and Southern Al- berta Institutes of Technology and they have very low fees. "We have courses which are similar to other colleges with much higher fees. The spread between shouldn't be too great, otherwise we'll be attracting students into the less expensive programs or where the fees are Dr. Stewart said. He said a choice between professional courses, or lower fees, is not fair to the student. "We don't think we should use financial pressure to get them into the wrong pro- Dr. Stewart said. He said delegates to the Calgary convention, today and Friday, will also consid- er merging student admin- istrative academic board duties into one specific or- ganization. "At no time in the history of Alberta have we required an organization like this to any greater extent. "I don't suppose the indivi- dual groups would be unani- mous on any one thing. But if we don't try and unify, we'll never succeed in any- Dr. Stewart said. He said a unified group, willing to comprom i s e, stands a much better chance of being heard by Alberta's minister of advanced educa- tion. Dr. Stewart said prelimin- ary work on a constitution for such a group has been under scrutiny since 1967. "The time now is for ac- tion. I hope the (individual) groups see this and accept he said. Advanced Education Minis- ter Jim Foster was to attend the AACA convention. Dr. Stewart said the minis- ter's appearance would be informal, devoted mainly to discussion with delegates about gnneral problems fac- ing Alberta educators. A life membership in the AACA was to be presented by Dr. Stewart to former LCC board chairman Jerome Rob- bins of Pincher Creek. Mr. Robbins, who retired from the LCC board in 1972, was the first president of the AACA. In addition to serving Pin- cher Creek as a school trus- tee for more than 20 years, Mr. Robbins was one of the original board members for the Lethbridge Junior College in 1959. He became LCC's second board chairman in 1967, a position he held until his re- tirement. Sugar beet growers seek relief from flea beetles What has been termed a "man-sized problem" is shap- ing up for Southern Alberta's sugar beet growers as the hot, dry weather condi- tions aid the progress of flea beetles. The pest has been eating small holes in the leaves of very small sugar beet plants as they emerge for about two weeks, said Gerald Snow, agricultural supervisor for Canadian Sugar Factor i e s Ltd. Some insecticide applica- tion is being undertaken but farmers are in need of cooler weather and rain so the plants can develop faster. The beetles don't affect the beet plants once they are more mature. ''A lot of fellows are hang- ing on hoping for said Mr. Smnv. "There is quite a lot of anxiety but nobody is push- ing the panic button yet. "Because of the drought conditions, farmers are hav- ing trouble getting a good stand of beets established. He said when the beetle eats a third of the leaf and the hot winds dry another third, the plants don't stand much of a chance. Mental health association receives grant The Lethbridge Association for the Mentally Rstarded is the recipient of a pro- vincial government grant, it has been announced by the department of health and so- cial development. The grant covers the gov- ernment's share of the oper- ational costs of Sunrise Ranch and Oliver House, res- idences for the mentally han- dicapped, says the executive director of the local associa- tion. Malcolm Jeffreys says the grant is based on a set rate for each bed occupied per day and is applied for by the Lethbridge association annu- ally. The department of health and social department also awarded to the Lsrche Association of Alber- ta, Edmonton, and to the Grande Prairie and Dis- trict Association for Retard- ed Children. Both organiza- tions operate residences for the mentally retarded.
