LYNDA RASKINS THINKS SHE'S THE YOUNGEST COLLEGE DEAN IN CANADA Young dean says Small colleges have advantage VANCOUVER (CP) At age 32, Lynda Haskins thinks she may" be the youngest college dean in Canada. "That makes me feel very good." she said. Ms. Haskins is dean of Columbia Junior College which has 316 students, a dozen full-time teachers and at least 12 part-time teachers. Ms. Haskins, who has taught at the college for four years, is not worried about being in charge. "There may be times when I will have to say, 'OK, this is the way we will have to do it.' but for the most part decisions will be made by the people who are most faculty and the students." She worked for a while as ex- ecutive director of Nasaika Lodge, a home for adolescent native Indian girls and said the experience taught her a great deal about counselling and the problems of minorities. "I really know how blacks and In- dians feel being isolated, never quite knowing how people are going to react. "I can understand how young peo- ple particularly become diffident and don't want to push themselves. "A lot of people assume they know what it's like to be in a minority but very few people actually do." She says the small size of the college is an advantage. "This makes a fantastic dif- ference to the kids. We get to know- all our students personally and the result is they never feel lost or left out." Ms. Haskins is part owner of a farm on South Pender Island and goes there on most weekends. "I en- joy shovelling manure with the rest of them." she said. She said she doesn't want to get married because she doesn't believe in lifetime relationships "but I can become totally committed to a relationship for as long as it lasts."

BONN (Reuter) Ger- mans looking for a wife or husband can select a likely mate from the television screen in the privacy of their own homes. German television runs a 50- minute marriage market program once a month. Even before the series began in Oc- tober, as a result of advance press publicity, hundreds of men and women seeking part- ners applied to appear before the cameras. The series, called Marriage not Excluded, has as its theme song an early Beatles number. Love Me. Do. THREE LANCERS D BDlTltD or The first three candidates for 7hc> altar were two 28- year-old women, one a com- mercial artist and one a school teacher, and a 30-year- male glass engraver. In informal conversation with a television reporter around a table, they chatted about their private lives, jobs and hobbies and described the sort of person they would like to marry. Viewers were shown pic- tures '.'f 'he candidates' homes and their surroundings to form an impression of their backgrounds. The "lonely hearts" were introduced by their first names. Their identities and addresses were not made pub- lic. Applicants wishing to make contact with them were told to v.-rili' care of the television in Cologne and the 1ft- trrs would be passed on uno- i'lW'i The program, described bv a Oilogn'j newspaper as "the craziest idea of the year.' originated by stage and tele- vision author Tankred Dorst and director Guenter Roh- rbach Television in West Germany is run by public corporations under the supervision of the state. For the last four years one television channel has run a mock divorce court as a dramatized form of marriage guidance. But thL is the first time the medium has set itself up as an active broker to establish relations between individual viewers. Producer Rolf Spin- rads said. "We had to over- come a good many taboos." One of the show's attract- ions for the financially hard- up television stations is that it promised to be a highly popu- lar program that would cost next to nothing.
