Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 1, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta -THE LETHSR1DOE HERALD NovwnlMr A calm Henderson Lake.

Work-study at U of L businesses benefit from program By MURDOCH MACLEOD Herald Staff Writer Alternating periods of employment with classroom work can substantially benefit university students and the Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce board of directors was told Wednesday. Dr. Ed co- ordinator of the co-operative studies pilot project at the University of and an assistant professor of political told a direc- tors' luncheon that co- operative education had begun at the University of Cinncinati in 1912. More than 300 univer- sities and colleges in North America now have co- operative studies he said. Dr. Webking said the program would integrate practical experience in in- government or other organizations with theory. He said students would submit their proposals to a faculty committee for approval and would be match- ed with jobs that would provide the right experience. Some students had already made arrangements when they saw Dr. Webking told The and required only approval by faculty. He told the directors the program would open in January with 35 and 65 would ultimately be includ- ed in the four-year ex- periment. The sample will be small enough for statistical he said. Co-operative education will give employers benefits in least six said the professor. It will give employers a ready-made recruitment and training and will lessen the impact of turnover because only half as many co- operative learning graduates as other graduates change jobs in their first three years of employment and many co- operative program graduates become permanent employees of the firms they study with. Businesses could make better use of their since students could be given duties needing more than a high school diploma but not requiring a he said. And the student is more employable on graduation than because on- the-job training is eliminated. Business and industry could contribute to the educational Dr. Webking and new talent would contribute to the vitality of their organizations. The last benefit was heard as a comment on a recent field trip to the eastern United he said. It came from organizations such as the Massachusetts Institute of the IBM the Massachusetts State Department of Social and the Prudential and Aetna insurance com- panies. Dr. Webking also said that Northeastern University in Boston had found students' motivation increased by co- operative learning. Northeastern has the largest co-operative education program in North said Dr. with of its students in- volved. He said a study at Northeastern had shown students going on to graduate work at MIT and similar institutions outper- formed other graduates in the same disciplines.

Their fine spun ensemble tone made for a just appreciation of the music's not to mention the striking harmonic nuances seldom heard in the well-blended wind music of Mozart or Beethoven. The next number was the 1948 Quintet by Elliott Carter. This with its noticeable economy of could be rather cool and bland. the quintet made the most of the light ar- ticulation in the phrases and conveyed the almost Hindemith type sonorities with vigor and intensity. The quintet's ability to stress the unity as well as the individuality of the instruments was delightful. The faster passages were not exactly and there were times vhen the torturous complexities of the composi- tion made for difficult listening. intellec- tually the performance was of the highest level. The quintet went on to play Purcell's Abdelezer arranged by Ross Purcell's in- cidental type music is undemanding and empty. last evening's per- formance was quite the richest and most persuasive account of this arrangement I have ever heard. CUFF HACK. HACK DOT At LAB mHCM.KNTM.llM. The evening concluded with Harry Freedman's Quintet. One should mention that Mr. Freedman is from Medicine and began his musical studies in Winnipeg. He was obsessed with similarity between music and painting and composed his music on the various styles of painters or paintings. The quintet played this com- position with a creditable warmth and understanding as it responded to the stirring situations which the composer so admirably expressed in sound images. Although the artists held the key to Freedman's searching and imaginative inner one could not help but wish that the evening had conclud- ed with something a little more familiar as the complex- ities of the music began to im- pose a gloss of world weariness and pseudo profun- dity when sampled at this length. The U of L concert series organizers are to be com- mended for their enterprising choice of talent. As an ensem- ble the group played most musically. Their instrumental tone and discipline were superb. Governor appointed A student and faculty member at the University of Lethbridge were appointed to the U of L board of governors this week. Dr. S. Aubrey Earl replaced Robert Anderson as faculty representative to the board and Sylvia Strom replaced R. B. Miller as the student's representative. COMPUTER ACCOUNTING AND MANAGEMENT Data Processing Ssrvices 401 CANADA TRUST BUILDING TELEPHONE CMHC offers more help for low-income families A new Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation program designed to help lower-income families own their own homes is getting off the ground in Lethbridge and other Southern Alberta com- munities. Ron area manager for says his office has been working on the program for about a month and so far some 46 new homes and 15 to 20 existing houses are being purchased by people who would not otherwise be able'to own a home. In Lethbridge 24 duplex un- its which will sell for between and are being built on the north side by Nu- Mode Homes Ltd. under the program. Through the assisted home ownership formula a family with an annual gross income as low as could qualify to purchase one of the lower- priced Mr. Pushkarenko says. The objective of the program is to enable a family to own a house without spending more than 25 per cent of gross income on the monthly mortgage payments and property taxes. This goal is achieved through a low down payment of five per cent of selling price of the home and interest and grant subsidies on the 35-year CMHC mortgage. To illustrate how the program Mr. Pushkarenko used an applica- tion that has gone through on an existing house. The purchase price was and the mortgage amount came to at 9Vz per cent over 35 years. This worked out to a monthly payment of on the principle and interest. The family's gross income was and there was one child bringing the adjusted in- come to The program allows a deduction of for each dependent child and up to from the earnings of a working in deterrning who qualifies for assistance. In this case the family qualified for a total subsidy of annually or a month. The family then ended up with monthly payments of less the or With estimated property taxes of a month their payments totalled which worked out to 24.1 per cent of their gross in- come. To qualify for assistance un- der the program a family must have at least one depen- dent but single parent families are also eligible. Qualifying income levels vary from place to place depending on local housing but basically in Lethbridge the income range at the moment is to says Mr. Pushkarenko. It can be lower however as in the case of the duplexes now under where the price of the housing itself is he said. A lot of people are surprised that they can actually get financial assistance to purchase a Mr. Pushkarenko says. But the assistance isn't permanent it's intended to get people he said. Family income is reviewed after five years and in 2ft- year intervals after that and assistance is either confirmed or reduced depending on how much income has risen. At the point where it has risen to the extent that the family can meet the mortgage payments on their own with 25 BERGMAN'S ROM per cent of their income the subsidy will be ended. In a family that sells a house purchased under the program is not eligible for assistance on a second house. The type of housing that can be purchased under the program varies again with housing costs in each locality. Thirteen single-family dwellings are being built un- der the program in but in Lethbridge new single fami- ly units are just about out of the question because of land says Mr. Pushkarenko. There are still some ex- isting older homes in the city selling for below that can be fitted into the he but even that market is skyrocketing because of demand. Another problem is the availability of land in the city for duplex housing. Mr. Pushkarenko feels the demand for housing under the program will be strong once it becomes better but it is difficult at the moment for builders to get enough land in the city at a low enough price to develop such housing. Walter Stewart of so far the only builder locally putting up homes through the he will be going into another area of the north-side shortly with more duplex units. And he says he'll be starting more next spring. Construction started last week on the first units in the St. Edward's north of 18th Avenue and west of 13th Street. District elections near for councillors Eight-year Claresholm council veteran Dr. Don G. a Claresholm has resigned from council. Dr. Clark said he resigned because Mayor Len Bach relieved him of his duties as chairman of the water and sewer committee. Councillor Williard Henker succeeds Dr. Clark as chairman of this committee. felt there was non- confidence in me from the mayor and his said Dr. Clark in a Herald inter- view. was a new com- mittee chosen at this time of year. I have been on this com- mittee for quite a while. The mayor gave it to one of the councillors who has been try- ing to get this job ever since he got on Dr. Clark said he was not consulted prior to the switch in committee heads. Mayor Bach has been in of- fice since spring. He succeed- ed Ernie Patterson. During the Dr. Clark was acting mayor for two months but did not seek the office. Dr. Clark's resignation comes too late for his seat to be filled in the Nov. 9 election. Pour weeks must transpire after nomination day.

At the same ratepayers will vote on a proposed taxpayer- guaranteed loan of to the Claresholm Curling Club to complete its new curling rink. A petition filed against the borrowing spurred the plebiscite. It had 229 signatures. The terms of the proposed bylaw call for the funds to be borrowed at the rate of 10 per cent to be repaid over a period of 10 years. The town would be simply guaranteeing the repayment of the money in the event the club did not do so. Organizers of the petition state they feel there is no guarantee of the curling club repaying the loan and it is a they of granting the club over 10 years. four people were elected by acclamation and two will contest the Claresholm rural subdivision as school trustee nominations for the Willow Creek School Division closed Wednesday. Ray Chattarton and John Eaton will seek election in the rural subdivison. Elected by acclamation were Dr. Frank Baker of Jack Marshall of Art Grant of Claresholm and Lloyd Barr of Ft. Macleod.
