Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 11, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta IS TW LETHBRIDGE HEKALD Solurdoy, November 11, Survey results being tabulated Development of intellect figured main job of schools Most people in Lelhbridge be- sex education, lieve the main job of schools The questionnaires, which are is to develop intellectual capa- city, according to preliminary figures compiled by the Leth- bridge public scnool board's educational goals project. That conclusion was reached after a preliminary analysis of the answers provided in a sur- vey which saw question- naires distributed at random to households in Lethbridge and en additional went to spe- cial interest groups such as teachers, students and home and school associations. Other general goals mention- ed highly were: development of social skills and emotional adjustment, ensure job qualifi- cation preparation, assist in de- veloping a set o[ values, solve drug problems, prepare for rec- reation and leisure and provide being analyzed by a computer at the University of Lethbridge, show that people generally feel quite strongly that there should be more of a move toward in- dividual instruction in the schools. A total of 34 per cent of the respondents classified it as be- ing of high importance while 39 per cent said It was of very high priority. Most people gave the same ranking to allowing students to attend the school of their choice while the idea of nursery schools drew little support. A proposal that there be more use of work-study projects drew strong support from teachers and students while parents and the general public also support- ed the concept, but not as eu- I Lhusiaslically. A total of 71 per cent of the students surveyed felt work- study programs should be ex- panded. The survey showed only mod- erate support for involving members of the general pub- lic in deciding on what pro- gra ns _re offered in the schools. The goals committee said it was somewhat surprised by this fact because there has been a general outcry in recent years for more public involvement in this area. "They seem to they'll do it but really want be saying they don't said Ken Ssuer, principal of the Leth- bridge Collegiate Institute. A final report on the project is scheduled for completion by May, 1973. Court decision delayed By ItIC SWIHART Herald Staff Writer The constitutional implica- tion of Canada's grain quota system has resulted in a one- month adjournment for a deci- sion in Alberta's lest case on the overdelivery of rapeseed. Provincial Judge A. H. Elford InLethbridge magistrate's court Friday adjourned to Dec. 10 decision in the case against Charlie Siltala of Tro- chu, 35 miles southwest of Red Deer, who was charged with overdelivery of rapeseed to the local Western Canadian Seed Processors Ltd. plant. The court case is the result of months of conflict between the Canadian wheat board and toe Alberta department of agri- culture concerning which body should control the movement of rapeseed within the boundaries of Alberta. The CWB considers rspcsecd a grain subject to fed- eral control. Alberta feels fed- eral control of Alberta-grown products processed in the prov- ince hinders agricultural prod- uct marketing processes. The incident arose during the winter of 1971-72 when adverse weather conditions left the lo- cal rapeseed-crushlng plant on the verge of shutting down op- erations because of a lack of raw product. GROWERS Instead of placing about 200 employees out of work, West- ern Canadian Seed Processors called for delivery of rapeseed. As many as rapeseed growers under contract with the company responded to the call and moved raw products to the plant. Unofficial reports Indicate 600 hauling permit books were seized by the wheat board for this overdelivery. In the specific case of Mr. Siltala, the wheat board con- siders that he delivered to an MEALS ON WHEELS AT NOMINAL COST For Further Information Phone 327-7990 elevator 299 bushels of rape- seed more than allowed for un- der the rules and regulations governing the movement ol grain. For some years now, farmers have had to indicate on a per- mit quota book the number ol acres of their cultivated land they wish to designate for a specific grain. The wheat board then sets a quota for the num- ber of bushels of that grain a farmer can haul to the eleva tor for each acre he has assign- ed to that grain. MANY INTERRUPTIONS In a prepared statement, prosecutor John Boras of Leth- bridge told Judge Elford that Mr. Siltala hauled three loads of rapeseed during the 1971-72 crop year 514 bushels to a private grain handling elevator and bushels to the Leth bridge seed-crushing plant. Three loads included the 299 bushels of overdelivery, accord- ing to the crown. Defence lawyer A. T. Cook of Edmonton was continually in- terrupted by the prosecutor and left evidence on the constitu- tional issue until his final ar- gument. RAPESEED QUOTA John Channon, chairman of the Alberta Grain Commission told the court he considers that the permit book holds three categories for assigning differ- ent types and uses of rape- seed, that meaning there are actually three quotas for rape- seed. In the permit book, there is room for assigning acres for the new low erucic acid rape- seed (Lear) varieties, for rapeseed hauled to an elevator and for rapeseed hauled to a domestic crushing plant. Mr. Monk countered that there Is only one quota for rapeseed. Boh Simmons, vice president for Western Canadian Seed Pro- cessors in charge of raw me- terlals, told the court the rape- seed used in the towl plant for processing must be contract- grown to assure a top quality product. He said the company issues seed stocks to farmers and accepts crop only from this seed. He strutted Mr. Siltala to haul a said the company m- load of rapeseed to the plant. Unto- the contract agreement, the plant owns the rapeseed as soon as it is in the farmer's bins. The company pays stor- age to the farmer If the grain isn't hauled to the plant before December of the crop year. Mr. Cook argued that since Jie crushing plant uses Alber- ta 'g r o w n product delivered to HARDLITE LENSES For everyone who wears glasses JMhMe m ALL Thw Herdlte leneee are: Shatterproof and becked by a S5.0CO.OO' wesremy against eye injury.

Once the rapeseed is converted to oil products, it cannot be con- sidered an infringement, he added. He stressed- that since the rapeseed processed in the crushing plant doesn't place a burden on the- national grain handling system, there was no justification for federal inter- vention that the quota sys- tem for rapeseed hauled to a domestic crushing plant shouldn't hold. Mr. Monk said under tha Can- ada Grain Act, all crushing plants in Western Canada are considered elevators. He said an elevator is used for the good of Canada and therefore comes under federal jurisdiction. PRIVATE MRKINC ONLY SIGN OF THE TIMES This sign, which had been posted at the entrance to Ihe parking lot on the west side of the lelhbridge Herald building, was used as a tem- porary restraint Friday while work crews constructed a fence around the excavation.

La Mancha: the impossible dream comes true By LYNNE VAN LUVEN If Don Quixote's "Dulcinea" Is the epitome of fairest wom- anhood, then Lethbridge Musi- cal Theatre's "Man of La Mancha" is the zenith of finest entertainment. Friday evening at the.Yates Centre, a full and appreciative house enjoyed an almost un- blemished production, a su- perbly professional and polish- ed "La Mancha" so well- executed it totally belied its 'amateur" status. Taken as a whole, "Man of La Mancha" must be LMT's greatest triumph yet. Despite the apparent ease with which the cast breathed fire and life into the lines and lyrics of "La the mu- sical was a difficult and taxing one. FEAR DISPELLED If there was concern that 1 m p o r t ing an accomplished Broadway star in the person of Maura K. Wedge would cast a shadow on local performers-, the first half-hour of the pro- duction dispelled such fears. In fact, the entire cast did such a fine job it seems unfair :o laud one without praising all. There was no such thing as a 'minor role1 each performer played his or her role to near perfection. Miss Wedge's portrayal of Aldonza used, abused, jaded, coarsened and bitter was faultless, pitched to the right degree, full of fire and hatred and hopeless, bottled despair. Aldonza's opening number, 'It's All The Same' shows us the woman as everyone sees whore and scullery maid. Her frustration and misery are given poignant voice in the number 'Aldonza' where she describes her sordid life to a starry-eyed Quixote who sees her only as "Dulcinea." And fi- scene, she does Indeed become her knight's "Dulcinea It is a characterization and trans- formation made entirely be- lievable by Miss Wedge's skill. To play tliree different roles within one play is accomplish- ment enough. But (o direct as well as art is indeed a test of talent and stamina. It is a test that producer actor director Dick Mells passes with soaring colors. nally, In a tender closing! Mr. Mells Is a fine actor. As Peigans seek law changes to provide rehabilitation The Peigan Indian Reserve band council wants a better deal for court convicted In- dians. The band council, working in conjunction with the Napi Friendship Association in Pincher Creek, will ask the pro- vincial attorney general to re- move a portion ol the Summary Convictions Act which calls for fines and Jail sentences. Section 11 of the Summary Convictions Act provides for a jail sentence or fine and no pro- bation. In its place, sectors of Ihe federal Criminal Code, which habitation, will E-utomatically take over, the council main- tains. Sections 663 to 66C of the Cri- minal Code "takes precedence and allows the court a reason- able amount of leeway in in- stituting rehabilitative meas- ures in the case of offences under provincial statutes." The Peigans say the attorney- gensral "is currently reviewing the provincial Summary Con- victions Act" and recommend- ed the deletion in a letter to him. Under the Criminal Code, In- dians can work oui a probation and rehabilitation system with permits probation to seek re-1 provincial judges. Don Quixote, he Is superb. His Quixote is so finely etched, so essentially human, that we are with him all the way, tilting at monster windmills, trusting, searching and believing. And It is with admirable dexterity that Mr. Mells acts the role of director on stage when he puts together the sub-play. A situa- tion that could easily have been awkward, flowed smoothly. Mr. Mells played Quixote with flourish and dash, por- trays his foibles with under- standing. If one could ask for more, it would be that he pos- a little stronger singing although his perform- sessed voice, ance of "The Impossible Dream" was tremendously moving. JUST RIGHT Jack Warburton's Sanclm Panza was just the right mix- ture of humor, confusion, be- mused innocence and trust. Both Mr. Warburton's solo numbers were well done, his expressions and gestures as the irrepressible Panza inspired. Even when he weeps at his master's death, it is with the right nuance. Fine supporting pcrform- pcrl by ances were given by Bill Matheson, as the duke and Dr. Carrasco, and George Mann as the innkeeper and the gover- nor. Mr. Matheson possesses a fine stage voice and is a com- pletely natural aclor. Mr. Mann Nobody, not even the hairdresser, knows for sure Extension course remains mystery By RON CALDVVELL Herald Staff Writer An investigative challenge that would test the abilities of Sherlock Holmes has developed at the Lethbridge Community College and the more one looks Into it, the more confusing It seems to become. The problem is that officials at LCC think the University of Alberta, in co-operation with the University of Lethbridgc, is offering an extension course at the college. But, no one at the U of A, the U of L or LCC knows for certain whether the courses are under way. The business courses are re- portedly being held Monday nights and Saturday mornings. SURPRISED Dr. C. D. Stewart, president of LCC, said he was totally sur- prised when he heard of the matter. "I immediately took off out of my office to find out who ap- proved he said. "After con- tacting most of the senior ad- ministration at the college, I found no one knew anything about It."

Werner Schmidt, academic vice-president at LCC, said it looks like it is a matter of doing a room-by-room check on Mon- day night to "find out just who is there." DELAY He said this will probably have to wait until Nov. 20 I causc if the course Is being taught, no one knows for sure whether they will observe the Remembrance Day holiday on Nov. 13. Mr. Schmidt said he wrote to Iho department of extension nt the U of A to clarify whe- ther they wanted to use LCC facilities and advising them, If they did, they should use the proper channels of communica- tion. The reply promised co-oper- ation but made no mention of whether courses were now being hclrt. flo said this lins been the only communication between LCC nnd Ihc U of A. Dr. Stewart sold ho (eels the U of A should not be offering the courses in Lethbridge if, in fact, they are. "The country is quite con- cerned about the high cost of he said. "Surely there is no need for the U of A to come to Lelhbridge and attempt to put on a business course in competition with our own institution." Dr. Stewart said if such a course needed a university fla- vor, "which I then the U of L and LCC could do it at much less cost. "The whole mutter Is cer- tainly a little embarrassing to us at this Dr. Slew- art added. It appears that there Is only one person in the province who could shed some light on Ihc siluation ,iml he is in caslcrn Canada until next week.
