Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 15, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 TKc LETHBRIDCE HERAID Wednesday, November 13, 1V7'J U of A wants out Course puzzle solved Dy RON CAI.DWELI, Herald SlaH The case o( the missing ex- tension course lias been solved. It all started about a week ago when the Lethbridge Com- munity College received a bro- chure in the mail announcing that the department o[ exten- sion at the University of Al- berta would be offering a series of business courses at LCC on Monday nights. The first scr- ies was to start in October and the second in January. College officials were a bit miffed because this was the first they had heard of U. And what was the U of A doing of- fering courses in Lethbridge in the first place, they asked. Dr. C. D. Stewart, president of LCC, said there was no need for the University of Alberta to put on a business course in competition with the college. Warner Schmidt, academic vice-president at LCC, said there was no record of college facilities being rented by the U of A and he said a room- by-room check would have to be made "to see just who is there." A little checking only yielded having even more confusion. No one at the University of Lethbridge, which was provid- ing instructors for the program, or the University of Alberta, which was financing it, knew for sure where the courses would be offered or, In fact whelher they would be offered nt all. Further checking with the TJ of A revealed lhat the fall half of the course was under way at the U of L and arrangements had been made by the course instructors to have the Janu- ary session at LCC. Another round of questions fcund that the instruclors had changed their Native centre on new course The LeUibridge Friendship Centre may have hurdled its internal problems to regain its stature as a counselling centre and meeting place for native and non-native southern Alber- tans, Plagued for Ihe past two months by internal power strug- gles, the surviving directors of the Native Friendship Society of Southern Alberta re-structur- ed into a strong board over the Aided by friendship centre directors from Edmonton and City crash led to man's death-jury A coroner's jury found Mon- day that a IS-year-old Los An- geles man died in a Calgary Hospital Sept. 3 of complica- tions from injuries inflicted in a Lethbridge traffic accident. Lance Martin Plummer was Injured In a two-car collision at 5th Ave. and 21st St. S. July 21 and transferred to Holy Cross Hospital in Calgary. The driver of the other vehicle, Ronald Anthony Kemer of Tab- er, was not critically wounded. Pincher Creek, the centre's ob- jectives were clearly defined and additions were appointed to replace vacancies on the eight-seat board of directors. Bill Head, executive director of the Lethbridge centre said: "In view of the re-shaping of the board, and strengthening of our overall position, the planned Nov. 23 public meet- ing to assess our community position has been cancelled." During the weekend meeting, discussion centred around fu- ture financing of programs from the five-year million fund recently set up by the federal government. Delegates decided the fund would provide all the money needed to employ additional personnel for any new pro- grams initiated. A major problem expected to confront the revised board soon, is lhat of the location of the Lethbridge centre. The Salvation Army has pur- chased the building the centre is located in and has indicated it needs the facility to set up a hostel. The native friendship society plans to set up a committee to search for a new centre loca- tion. The new board members ap- pointed on the weekend are Eva Teles, Annie Cotton and Norma Head.

(QUESTIONS Will BF ANSWERED) minds spring about at LCC and decided to switch it all to the U of L. However, [hey neglected lo tell the U of A about the change. So there it was. Officials at the University of Alberta were maintaining the course would be at LCC. The course instructors were saying it would be at the U of L. Officials at the college were screaming for an explana- tion of who was doing what where. Anyway, consider it solved. The spring course will be of- fered at the University of Leth- bridge, Room E630 on Monday nights from 7-10 p.m., starting Jan. 15. That all straightened out, Duncan Campbell, head of the department oif extension at the U of A, said this will likely be the last time that the univer- sity offers the course in LeUi- bridge. It was started many years ago before "there was such a thing as the University of Leth- bridge." Now tnat there is a university here, Mr. Campbell said the U of A would be "de- lighted to turn the whole matter over to either the university or the college." Paint store purchased New owners take over the operation of Sherwin-Williams Paint and Wallpaper Store, 321 6th St. S., Dec. 1. Sam Lindsay, owner of the business since March, 1953, has sold the operation to George and Helen Eruchet, long-time residents of the city. The sale brings to an end 33 years in the paint business for Mr. Lindsay. He plans to re- main in Lethbridge during his retirement. The Bruchots have been in the decorating business in the city for many years. Mrs. Bru- chet has worked in the paint and wallpaper business and Mr. Bruchet has been a commer- cial painter. THE PRESIDENT CONFERS WITH HER EXECUTIVE from left, Frank Zcinoni, Betty Watson, Jesse Snow and Richard Miller. The students elected a grandmother? Snowmobile impact on park to be studied The Superintendent of Glacier National Park, William J. Brig- gle, has announced plans to study the potential ecological mpact of snowmobiles in the park. The program will study fac- such as effects on winter- Ing wildlife, noise levels, ex- haust and speed. The study, to be conducted jiis winter, is under the direc- ion of the park research staff. Although snowmobiling in the park is not now considered to significant, Mr. Briggle stressed the Importance of staying ahesd of this rapidly growing recreational activity. Jesse Snow really knows where it's at. At least the students at the University of Lelhbridge must think so. She's 48, a grandmoth- er and the president of their students' council. Mrs. Snow's student leader career began last spring when she decided she would persuade a few of her young classmates .0 seek election- to the council. She felt it was important that students have a strong say in university affairs. If it's so important, why don't you she was asked. And she did just that. When the votes were all counted, the students of Alber- t's youngest university had a grandmother leading their council Mrs. Snow's academic car- eer started in 1969, after she was named to the university Senate. "I decided since I was here, should take a course or two Because I never had the oppor- ;unity to go to university when graduated from high she said. The "course or two" sudden- y grew, and three and one- lalf years later, she had two university degrees. When she received a degree last spring, one of her sons re- ceived a diploma with her and another son will graduate next yeacr. "I feel my going to university has helped broaden the outlook of my entire she said. Mrs. Snow has seven chil- dren and one grandchild. As president of the Student's Society, she oversees a 000 annual budget and attends several meetings a week. She also has an office but seldom makes use of it. "I prefer to be out where things are going she said. When she does want to get away, "I might ride the elevat- or for awhile." What does Mrs. Snow the grandmother think of her young classmates? "Students today seem to be a little more infcnned when they go after she s a i d. 'They try to get the facts be- fore they jump into something and they also follow the prop- er channels of communication." Mrs. Snow said she doesn't think there has been a decline in radical thinking among stu- dents, it's just lhat they have found a different way of reach- ing their objectives. The grandmother president admitted she too harbors what might be termed as "radical outlooks." "I get kind of fed up with the status said Mrs. Snow, "I would like to see changes in society in such areas as dis- crimination, prejudice and the threat to the democratic pro- cess. I suppose I could be vio- lent if I had to stand up to de- fend my own principles." Mrs. Snow said society Is at least partly responsible for the declining student in the university. She said for may years, uni- versity was seen as the "open Sesame" to a job, "which uni- versities were never supposed to be involved in." Students are caught up in a conflict because they see a val- ue in a liberal arts education but they ire being pressured by society to get a job and be independent. So they are by- passing the area of conflict al- together. Although she has two de- grees, Mrs. Snow is still study- ing "strictly for self-fulfill- ment." "I was elected to council In March and graduated in May but since they elected me, I felt an obligation to come she said. "Now. I can study strictly to- enjoyment." Since she enrolled at the U of L, Mrs. Snow has been driv- ing 120 miles a day belweer. Lethbridge and her home In Milk River, first to meet her obligations as a student and now, to meet the demands of president of the University of Lelhbridge Student's Society. from ancient people being studied at of L A collection of pottery frag- menls from an ancient North American civilization was re- ceived recently by the Univer- sity of Lethbridge anthropology department. The pottery shards are rem- nants of the Hohokam people who flourished in south central Arizona from 300 B.C. to about 1300 to MOO A.D. The frag- ments were obtained from the Snaketown site. The donation, made by the Arizona State Museum, part of the University of Arizona in Tucson, was arranged by Dr. Emil Haury, senior archeol- ogist at the university. The fragments will be used as resource materials by stu- dents studying earlier civiliza- tions. 'Such pottery gives us direct specific evidence of the Hoho- kam said Professor Terry Moore.

He said the pottery products indicated a high degree of so- ptnstocation in the later stages of Hohokam culture. The reasons for its decline are not clearly known, but the society suffered near dissolution prior to the coming of the Euro- peans to North America, he said. Achievers to attend Calgary meet Forty eight Junior Achiev- ers from Lethbridge, Tatrsr and Magrath will attend officer training meetings at the Cal- gary Junior Achievement Cen- tre Nov. 18 and 19. The meetings are the first of several conferences planned in various locations for Junior Achievement members in the 1972-73 season. Instruction will be given In the proper handling of the var- ious positions held by the mem- bers, to assist them in manag- ing the companies of which they arc the elected officers. Plumbing rates to hold Most Lelhbridge plumbing contractors won't increase their service call rates. A Mechanical Contractors Association spokesman, bar- gaining agent for city plumb- ing contractors, said the con- sensus is that the "old" service call rale of J12.50 for the first hour and thereafter will continue. Earlier this month some as- sociation contractors served no- tice that they would increase their rates to per hour and thereafter for service calls. The advertised now rate caus- ed some confusion among its membership, as the price hike had not been endorsed by all the contract association mem- bers. Contractors Increasing their rates said increased costs forc- ed Ihe move. At an association meeting Tuesday, eome contractors took issue with a story published in The Herald Nov. 4th. Chocolate sale Thursday The Junior Achievement can- vass of the city for chocolate almond sales will take place Thursday evening. The canvass, which was to have occurred Monday, WM postponed due to a delay shipping. They said the story caused confusion among the public. The service call rates cover only emergency type of work and do not cover major jobs. Major jobs such as batliroom installations are done at a low- er hourly cost where cost esti- mates are given. These includ- ed labor and material costs and cover profit also, they said. Service call rates vary from shop to shop, the plumbing con- tractors added, VAN ISLE SEAFOODS Will have a truckload of FRESH ICED SALMON (Never Been Frozen) and Cooked Crab and other Seafoods parked at COLLEGE MALL SHOPPING CENTRE SOUTH OF HY'S THURSDAY and FRIDAY NOV. 16th and 17th From 10 a.m. to Dusk Featuring lobster tail, shrimp, salmon, fresh and crab and various tea foodi.
