Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 12, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuesday, November 12, 1974 School operator being 'deported9 BROOKS (Staff) American Jeff Smith, the operator of Cow Camp School on the Red Deer River said to- day he expects to be deported, as he does not have landed im- migrant status. He has officially been given until mid-December to get provincial approval for his Alberta wilderness school because it does not have in- door bathrooms or smoke detectors and fire escapes. Until recently, it was thought that the school would be given until next month to meet the requirements or the eight American students would be deported. A ninth student is Canadian. But Mr. Smith said in a telephone interview he has learned of a letter now c.r- culating in Canadian govern- ment circles that foretells of his impending deportation. "I guess the other shoe has he said. Should the deportation be carried out, Mr. Smith intends to seek landed immigrant status from the immigration service and return, he said. Immigration visas take from three to six months to obtain under normal circumstances when everything is in order. Mr. Smith's students are drawn from the ranks of drug addicts, juvenile delinquents and drop-outs. At present there are eight American students and one Canadian student at the school. Mr. Smith says all of them have failed to find help in conventional institutions. He says he would like to have about 25 students, drawn from both countries. He says he has repeatedly asked provincial officials what must be done to meet the standards required but has received no specific answers. Mr. Smith says he has spent most of his life teaching and helping people in trouble. His first school started in Maine where the students lived in teepees with no electricty, no telephones and no conveniences. They chopped their own wood. "It was the toughest, weatherwise, in says Mr. Smith. His Cow Camp school on the banks of the Red Deer River north of Brooks has a 50-foot kitchen trailer and a smaller skid shack with showers and bunks. These were donated by a farmer and a construction contractor. The teacher contracted to have power lines strung to the site and has had a new well drilled to supplement those already in use. The federal minister is waiting to see if Cow Camp will be given provincial approval before he decides to proceed with the deportation order. At the same time, Alberta Health and Social Develop- ment Minister Neil Crawford is awaiting to see what the federal minister will do before he approves the school. A review: Loud rock bands prove dismaying By MICHAEL ROGERS Herald Staff Writer Almost boppers spent the conclusion of their Remembrance Day holiday jumping, screaming, and clapping to the earshattering noise of four "musicians" from Scotland. The "musicians" call themselves Nazareth and they say, they play rock and roll music. I was bored deaf. I was dismayed. The concert, if one can call it that, was held at the Exhibi- tion Pavilion and was attend- ed by a mass of 12- to 16-year- old youths. Nazareth was the main bill. The first group, Hudson-Ford, should have been the feature. Hudson-Ford, from A complete Selection of MK PLANTERS CLEARING AT 20% OFF PRICED FROM 1950 Call Houaawaras 327-5767 DOWNTOWN England, put on a show. It is a very well put together band with stage appearance, class, and talent. It too was loud, but not as loud as Nazareth. Each musicians' instrument could be heard, and a musical instrument should be a challenge, not a machine with which to make money. The five members of Hudson-Ford showed what they could do and they were good. With Nazareth, there was no difference between the noise- polluting distorted wail of the lead guitar and the screaming grind of the lead singer. There was no difference between the echo of the drums or the thudding of the bass guitar. I was bored deaf. Once in a while, Nazareth gave a hint of the talent I believe they have, but don't use. The first half of their number. Loved and Lost, was well done. The lead guitarist showed he did know his way around a guitar and the singer displayed that beneath the grinding gravel sound of his vocal cords, there is a voice. But the display of talent was short-lived. Back came the noise. I was dismayed that youths between the ages of 12 and 16 appeared to like and en- joy the solid and constant wave of noise. There was no music, only sound. FOX DENTURE CLINIC Est 1922 PHONE 327-9M5 E. S. P. FOX, C.D.M. FOX lETHBfflME DENTAL LAB 204 MEDICAL DENTAL. BLDG.

Pat Lowe, general manager of Pincher Creek Ranch, told The Herald this morning, he received a message from the headquarters of Burlington Northern Railroad in Minneapolis this morning refusing to allow the ranch control over hunter movement on the lease. Mr. Lowe said the message from Glacier Park Co. makes it impossible for him to carry out a planned program of compulsory registration for all hunters to enter the lease. He said strict prohibition of hunting on acres of deeded land owned by Pincher Creek Ranch in the vicinity of the lease and at Claresholm will be followed. Mr. Lowe stressed he will prosecute any person found hunting on deeded land. Toasted barn A barn fire at the home of Benny Lee, 620 12th St. S., caused an estimated damage Monday afternoon before the fire was brought under control by city firefighters. They were called at p.m. and found the barn's interior engulfed in flames. The barn was used as a storage shed, firemen said. Also extinguish- ed was a fire at the 1054 Lakeview Dr. home of L.L. Hicken at p.m., where a pot boiled over and caus- ed a fire in the kitchen. Three grass fires in the coulees and a debris fire at 20th Avenue and Scenic Drive were extinguished. All fires except the kitchen blaze were of unknown origin. Arbitrary admission standards criticized by LCC official By JIM GRANT Herald Staff Writer No entrance requirement can be tolerated for admission to a post secondary educa- tion institute unless it can be shown that it is truly a necessary requisit for success, a national conference on education in Banff is to be told today by a Lethbridge educator. K. V. Robin, Lethbridge Community College dean of instruction, in a prepared text says some of the group norms of the past have been imposed admission standards at colleges and universities. Such standards have "fre- quently inhibited the academic progress of the he adds. The University of Alberta sponsored three-day annual conference this year zeros in on the future of secondary schools in Canada. Educationalists from throughout the nation are to attend. Dr. Robin believes the future of secondary schools in Canada may depend upon the development of a well clarified and accessible path for students moving from a high school to a college or un- iversity program. The transition between high school and post secondary in- stitutions is not clearly ar- ticulated at this time, he suggests. "Students should be allowed admittance to educational programs with as little aggravation as possible." Even though community colleges have sometimes fallen into disfavor because they are not as selective when admitting students. Dr. Robin maintains they have made an important contribution to the education scene that could not have been achieved through other institutions. He questions the methods of PENNER'S PLUMBING 1209 2nd Ave. S Phone 327-4121 selection used by some in- stitutions. When 80 students apply for a course that only has room for 40 students, "how do you select the 40 by averages, by good looks, by he asks. He suggests entrance to an educational institution should not be left in the hands of "some well meaning, but possibly ill informed counsellor playing God while he decides" whether a student is right or wrong for a program. "I suggest to you that my position in a two year com- munity college indicates quite clearly that my view would be that secondary schools should provide a student with a broadly based academic background." Post secondary institutions, he continues, should develop some kind of a career base for students so they can continue their education in the future without being hindered by ad- mission restrictions. "I believe that we had better forget the old idea that education is something which occurs to a child and that once terminated, cannot be started again. That is no longer true. "Lifelong learning means a whole new approach to education, one which adjusts automatically to whatever changes in knowledge take place in the period of a lifetime." In his speech to the Banff conference, Dr. Robin also slammed the post secondary institutions for failing to develop a transfer program that allows students to easily transfer from one institution to another and receive credit for their previous studies. "Any false barriers erected to delay or prevent a student from choosing his educational path are intolerable and un- forgiveable." He cited the results of a re- cent U of A study of the academic performance of students who haven't formally met the university's entrance requirements can do as well academically as those who have. The study of 175 students over a three year period found there was no appreciable difference in academic performance between transfer and non transfer students. Following the conclusion of the Banff conference, Dr. Robin will travel to Winnipeg to speak to the annual conference of the association of Canadian community colleges Nov. 17-20. Ledue hog stud unit planned A hog artificial insemina- tion unit will be built in Leduc by the animal industry divi- sion of the Alberta depart- ment of agriculture. Initially, a barn with a capacity of 20 boars will be built with an eventual capaci- ty of 40. A residence for a hersdman will be built along with a laboratory office complex for administering the unit and for evaluating, processing, packaging and shipping semen. When fully operational, the unit will require six workers. Agriculture minister Hugh Horner says the unit will provide hog producers with access to a constant supply of top quality boars, enabling the pork industry to produce a product that is acceptable to markets in Canada, the United States and Japan. Volunteers help schools The separate schools utilize the services of 42 volunteer school aides and more than 140 occasional volunteers, a report to be presented to the separate school board Wednesday shows. The school aides are usually parents who assist teachers in the classroom on a regular volunteer basis of about a half day a week.

Phona 328-1101 include parents, high school students and interested com- munity people who assist with committee work, speak to students or who act as resource personnel for such programs as outdoor education. Ralph Himsl, superintendent, also points out in his report that there are many other volunteers who assist the schools with programs and events that are not part of the school curriculum A parish priest visits each of the schools on a weekly basis, a volunteer assists with the coaching of the high school football team artd others help with such events as the music festival. There are also community volunteers on special com- mittees such as the family life education and philosophy committees. The schools also employ about 21 aides to oerform clerical duties and assist teachers with their work Dr. Horner says the use of semen from boars that have proved to produce offspring with a maximum amount of lean meat, good feed ef- ficiency and high daily gains will help to ensure a supply of high quality pork in Alberta that will be competitive on world markets. A similar unit has been es- tablished in Ontario to serve producers in Eastern Canada. It is hoped the Alberta unit will serve all of Western Canada, the minister said. Semen will be available to both national and inter- national markets from the Alberta unit. Dr. Horner says hog ar- tificial insemination is still in the early stages of its prac- tical application to swine in- dustry. The technique was pioneered by Japan and a few European countries, especial- ly Holland and England. CcrtMM OMM HtadHMte CLIFF BLACK, BLACK DENTAL LAB MORAL PBITALUM.

A_ police investigation indicated there was no evidence of a forced entry. Teachers may settle early Early indications are that the 15 per cent increase in grants to school boards announced last week by Education Minister Lou Hyndman will lead to smoother negotiations and an early settlement for separate school teachers in the city. Ken Tratch, chairman of the separate school teachers negotiating committee, made the suggestion today after com- pleting the first round of contract talks with the separate school board Monday.
