Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 3, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta It THE UTHBRIDOE HERALD Friday, November 3, 1972 Joint understanding needed Canadian minority groups must be given the right to feel proud or their heritage, says Russell Lcskiw, University of Lefhbridge dean of education. At the beginning of the cen- tury there was extensive gov- ernmental pressure in Canada to integrate and cmfo-ni to a national standard, he told per- sons attending a Southern Al- berta Council on Public Allairs noon meeting Thursday. Eventually minority and ma- jority groups were sold on the need for conformity and con- formed to a national at the expense of individualism that usually accompanies the various cultural backgrounds Gtizens get second chance to talk to dying commission The chances of a replay of lasi year's fiasco when the Al- fa e r t a Colleges Commission came to Lethbridge for public hearings has been minimized by a commission announcement that it will visit Lethbridgc Jan. 12. Last year's meeting had only a few days notice before it was held, resulting in only one gen- eralized verbal presentation to the commission. Several com- munity groups were disturbed because they didn't have enough notice of the meeting and couldn't get written briefs ready in time. About 100 copies of the Mas- ter plan' for Alberta's Colleges are expected at the Lethbridge Community College early next week. They will be distributed to numerous individuals and groups who may be interested in making a presentation to the The LARGEST ASSORTMENT of imported styles in LETHBRIDGE commission regarding the plan. Anyone who wishes to discuss another issue with the commis- sion will be free to do so at the hearing. This will be the last such meeting since the commission is being disbanded by Ihe provin- cial government next March. from which Canadians origi- nate. Ironically, he said, the cul- tural norm laler soured, and is now typified by the two disil- lusioned cultural groups promi- nent in Canada today. Dr. Lesklw said this has re- sulted in a high degree of pro- test bv primarily the French and English sectors against each other. The only solulion to the prob- lem is "building a Uglier level of understanding" through a gradual learning process. The two-way protest could be resolved by sincere efforts to understand the cultural traits of each other, he said. Canada still has a long way to go before cultural protests are replaced by lesser issues, he warned. However, by switching issues the "degree of disillusionment" among minorities will abate. College to change emphasis in its school of business A number of changes have been approved in the school of business education at the Leth- bridge Community College, in- cluding the name of the faculty, ft will now be knomi as the school of business. TOD major changes approv- ed during the Wednesday night board of governors meeting will sec a greater emphasis on spe- cialization in the first year. 'Darrell Malsey, director of the school, suggested the change in emphasis because many stu- dents have been dropping out after the first year to seek jobs. "In order to better prepare those students who wish to seek employment after one year, we propose to establish an invert- STILL SELLING FOR LESS! STERN'S CUT-RATE FURNITURE 314 3rd Street S.

Mr. Maisey said the percen- tage of students entering the second year of the program has dropped from 68 per cent in 1968 to 46 per cent in 1D71 while the percentage of those actually graduating has dropped by 14 pei cent during the three-year period. 500 seats left for musical Slightly more than 500 seats are still available for week night performances of Leth- bridge Musical Theatre's Man of La Mancha.

APPLICATION If a farmer needs workers, he can apply to CMC under the program and receive financial assistance during the period of training. Persons interested in a farm job should also apply at Canada Manpower. The more complex the farm operation, the longer the training period. To date, six farmers have ap- plications at the Lethbridge of- fice for workers to be trained under the program even though the employer-trainee applica- tion period doesn't end until Dec. 31.

Under Mr. Gruenwald's pro- posal a parent would get a credit for every school aged child to spend at the school of their choice, He proposed a motion for a study of the voucher system which is still on the order paper from the spring silting of the legislature. Mr. Gruenwald said at prcs- e.'it parents have no choice in where to send their children be- cause private school education costs mo-e. John Ashlon (PC Edmon- ton Otfewell) proposed a mo- tion that "The Alberta govern- ment consider methods of in- creasing financial support -to private schools in the province which have curricula that meet dcpa.'lmenl of education re- quirements." Mr. A s h t o n said private schools are beneficial because they add to a "multicultural" society. He said criticism of private schools such as that they are "srobbish" or that parents force children against their will .to attend them are outweighed by the benefits. Gordon Taylor (SC Drum- heller) said parents should have a choice of whether to send children to public or pri- vale schools a ripht offered under the United Nations hi'man rights charter. Mr. G'-uenwald said private schools deserve financial sup- port from government because they take children who would otherwise cost money in public schools. Crosiand, Peacock UtEtbridqe Co. Ltd.
