Students find hostility at Ottawa meet By MARLENE COOKSHAW Herald Staff Writer A four-day national student symposium in Ottawa proved to be an enlightening experience for two Lethbridge high school students. The symposium was an at- tempt to provide the 150 select- ned Canadian students with an opportunity to "discover their and exchange Ideas and opinions with the hope of promoting a mutual understand- ing among young people from different regions. Gayle Graham and Rhonda Huston, two Grade 10 students at Winston Churchill High School, were among 20 stu- dents, Grades 9 to 13, from the four western provinces spon- sored by Project Canada West to attend the Ottawa sympos- ium. They were selected by Henry Krause, social studies instruc- tor at Winston Churchill and co-ordinator of the Lethbridge team of Project Canada West. Both students were part of the team dealing with the effect of pressure groups on urban communities, part of the scdal studies program. TOPICS Seminars at the symposium, held Oct. 25 to 20, dealt with such topics as the functions of the Canadian capital; prob- lems of the federal government; social, cultural and economic issues; and the history and fut- ure of Canada. The students felt that, "al- though much was lost in the translation" made necessary by French and English- speaking participants, the sem- inars had proved worthwhile. Both said that they had chang- ed Uieir opinions on several topics discussed after hearing other young people's opinions. HOSTILITY One situation which had been completely unexpected was the resentment and hostility be- tween French- and English- speaking Canadians. "There is an actual hatred between them. They were es- pecially bitter during the semi- nars, when feelings were BTOUS- about a particular situa- said Rhonda. The girls said that most sem- inars, no matter what the pre- pared topic was listed as, gen- erally ended up dealing with the Blrench-Eng ash problem i n Canada. ULTIMATUM "Some of the people actually refused to speak In the other's language, and everyone would cheer when someone spoke in their said Gayle. "Some of the French students felt that it went so far as to be an ul- timatum of either bilingualism or separatism. "The hostility was just ignor- ance on the part of the partici- pants. Nobody knows what's happening anywhere else than where they live." "Outside of the seminars, there was less bitterness said Rhonda. "The students got along okay, but they just didn't have the same views on anything. They have no contact with the same prob- lems." BILINGUALISM She said she was against bilin- gualism In C nada, and thought that the bitterness of the stu- dents at the symposium had en- forced her opinion. Gayle felt that bilingualism was "a good Idea. I think we need it for Quebec, and it would be good for the country. But it should be brought in grad- ually, taught in elementary schools, not forced on people now." While attending the sympos- ium, tne sV dents were also given tours of Ottawa attrac- tions and the city of Montreal. They were billeted in Ottawa and the surrounding area, with the two Lethbridge students living in small towns within a half-hour drive of the city. They flew to and from Ot- tawa, returning Sunday even- ing. sss convent for you AIR CANADA 9 College transfers need improvement The Lethbridge Community College should continue its ef- forts to improve transfer ar- rangements with Alberta uni- versities, said Werner Schmidt, LCC academic vice-president. In a report presented to the regular board of governors meeting Wednesday night, Mr. Schmidt noted that while the college has worked out formal agreements with several Am- erican institutions, no such pacts have been arranged with universities in this province. The college does have an in- formal agreement with the Uni- versity of Alberta's faculty of business administration and commerce but little imprint has been made on either the Uni- versity of Lethbridge or the University of Calgary. "Such arrangements have been made with the University of Alberta and have proven very satisfactory, especially with the faculty of business ad- ministration and said Mr. Schmidt. "Arrangements with the Uni- versity of Lethhridge have not Iwen completed but negotia- tions are currently under way and some progress, although slow, is being made." Mr. Schmidt recommended the college continue to push for a better deal with the U of L while contacting individual faculties in Calgary and Ed- monton in an effort to estab- lish arrangements similar to those now in effect with the faculty of business administra- tion and commerce at the U of A. FURTHER TALKS He Efso suggested furlrlx talks with the transfer commit- tee which has been established by the Universities Gurdinat- z Council. The main problem has been that Alberta universities have been reluctant to accept the col- lege's evaluation of the stu- dents It Is recommending to Ihe universities. The college maintains that It should have the right to deter- mine what advance slanding each student should receive up- on entering university after completing two years at LCC. The report was received and filed. THEFT City police are invesligaUng the theft of a stereo tape deck and two tires and rims from a truck parked in front of the James M. Moore home, 711 12th St. S.

The cost to build a house rose considerably in the last year, to from Even in the past month, the average house cost Jumped from in September. A 12-sulte bachelor apartment building worth was also started in October. A permit was issued to the city for expansion of the Mayor Magrath Drive pumping station, part of the water Distri- bution system. The same month last year, 98 permits were taken out for worth of construction. The total to date this year is compared with the first 10 months of 1971. Sesame Street committee expands The Committee to save Sesame Street will expand to Calgary in the immediate fu- ture. The expansion decision was made during an organizational meeting in Lethhridge Wednes- day, attended by about 75 per- sons. A moratorium was placed on an earlier decision lo boycott CJOC Television and Radio sponsors until all other aven- ues, including a massive pro- test petition to the CBC, had been exhausted by the commit- tee. The petition, to be circulated throughout southern Alberta and Calgary, will urge the CBC to make changes so that the hour long kiddies show can be run locally without penalty. George Brown, CJOC's gen- eral manager, explained that there are certain shows the CBC sets as mandatory fot its stations and affiliates. Sesame Street is not one of them. If the CBC were to change the show's status, it could be Trial Nov. 23 on break-in Michael Kwartel, 16, of Leth- bridge, today was remanded un- til Nov. 23 for tri al on a charge resulting from the Oct. 3 break-in to the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute which caus- ed more than damage. Mr. Kwartel was released on 5500 cash bail when he appear- ed in provincial judges court Oct. 26, and was permitted to change his plea from guilty to not guilty. Two other young Lethbddge men, who pleaded guilty to the same break-in received one and two-year sentences respec- tively. Street hockey illegal in city It is illegal to play hockey on city streets, no matter how slip- pery they may be. City police ask all youthful hockey players to refrain from using city streets as rinks be- cause of the hazards created for drivers. A city police official said skids caused by motorists try- ing to avoid unexpected youths in the street can result in costly accidents and even injuries to all involved. used to replace a mandatory show. Otherwise, he said, It would be economic suicide for CJOC lo run the show produced in the United States. Sesame Street must be shown without adver- tising. Another major factor keep- ing the show off Lethbridge air- waves was a recent Canadian Radio-Television Commission de- cision to change the show's sta- tus to foreign content from neutral. Canadian s t a t ions must show at least CO per cent Canac'iian content. During the meeting which saw Don Barker of Lethbridge elected chairman of the com- mittee, Mr. Brown said CJOC would have to forfeit at least five hours of prime revenue producing foreign shows to carry Sesame Street at pres- ent. He offered to let a committee chartered accountant look at the station's books. If the ac- countant found that the show could be economically aired it would be back on local air- waves. Mr. Barker said the purpose of the petition would be to ap- ply sufficient pressure on the CBC to have it change the show's classification. In addi- tion, the petition, to which or- ganizers hope to get at least names, will be sent to the CRTC. Through the petition the committee hopes lo force the CRTC to change Sesame Street's classification back to neutral content from foreign content. Mr. Brown told S e s a me Street supporters, "I'm on your side. I'd love to carry it." However, he reiterated that it would be economic suicide to air the show unless either the CBC, which paid ?1 million to a United States company for the show's rights, or the CRTC changes the show's classifica- tion. Mr. Brown declined to de- vulge how much revenue CJOC would lose by carrying Sesame Street. INSURANCE LIABILITY BONDS AUTO FIRE ROSSITER AGENCIES LTD. ESTABLISHED 1911 tower Floor 4lh Art. S.
