To honor author NEW YORK (AP) The Na- tional Book Committee said here Lewis Mumford, the so- cial philosopher, architectural critic and author, will receive its 1372 National Medal for Lit- erature. The award consists of and a bronze medal. The warden, commenting on the possibility of drug abuse within institutions, said: "We are very concerned but the only way to stop it completely would be to keep the prisoners locked up for 24 hours a day with no visitors." society as a whole has this problem with drugs it is bound to be reflected in our institutions, especially since more and more people are coming to prison for drug of- fences." However, Warden J a m es Jackson of the Calgary Correc- tional Institute savs he can't pouit to specific incidents of drug abuse at his institution, although he had his suspicions. "We search the clothing of prisoners coming back from temporary absences and we warn visitors that they must not bring anything in, although we don't search them as a mat- ter of course. "And if we have reason Lo believe a person will attempt to bring in contraband we don't grant them permission to visit." But one former prisoner, who declined to reveal his name, j said he thought he wouldn't see another "joint" when he went to Jail for the first time in I960 for possession of mar- ijuana, a four month term at the Oakalla prison In British Columbia. But the sup- ply was there. EXPERIENCED SALESMAN Required immediately for leading men's clothing store in Lethbridge.

"I was said Dr. John Paterson, chairman of the school board that on Oct. 10 ap- proved plans for an earlier start to the school year. He said he thought the chang- ed year would ho good for stu- dents but acknowledged that a survey of students by stu-1 dent unions throughout the city indicated that 60 to 90 per cent are opposed to it. ..The public's attitude is also "clear, very he said. Five of the six trustees voted in favor of a motion recinding the decision. Lois Campbell, the only trus- tee against the motion, acknow- ledged public opposition to the year change but argued thai the board should have waited longer before discarding the plan. She said more public dis- cussion is necessary. The holiday shift was ap- proved earlier because trustees felt it necessary to create an equal number of school days before and after the Christmas break to accommodate the se- mester system useo in some schools for Grades 10 to 12. The current system provides for more days in the semester after Christmas, meaning that students have to have longer school hours in the pre-Chrisl- mas semester to complete the courses. Parents opposed the change Translators provided .OTTAWA (CP) Secretary of State Gerard Pelletier an- nounced today that the govern- ment's translation bureau is providing teams of translators to help the defence department promote bilingualism in the Ca- nadian Armed Forces. The measure is part of an over-all program that already has resulted in intensified lan- guage training on military bases, led to formation of 22 French-language units and created a trade and training program in French. Translation teams already have been set up at Borden and Kingston in Ontario and at Gagetown in New Brunswick. Others will he located in the fu- ture at Halifax, Chilliivack, B.C., and Saint Jean, Que. Each team, made up of three translators, one reviser and two office employees, will concen- trate initially on preparation of French training courses for French-speaking training per- sonnel. Office space and equipment will be supplied by the defence department. because they said their holiday patterns were being shifted ar bitrarily without consulting them. Students said the changi would hurt their chances fo summer jobs. Teachers sale they would not be able to at tend most summer schools which are held in Julv and Aug ust. Trustee Edith Rogers, who proposed the motion to restinc the school year change, said pe tition, briefs and letters to the board showed that at least adults opposed the change Votes taken at three home ant school meetings indicatedi close to 90 per cent opposition in each case. She said the weather in Aug- ust in better than in June or July, affording families a chance to holiday together. There was also widespread opposition from business firms and summer camps, Mrs. Rog- ers added. Little League Base- ball organizers were opposec because a June holiday would wipe out this activity. Boy Scouts and other organizations would have trouble organizing their summer camps. Schools would have to be air- conditioned for August use and portable classrooms would be uninhabitable because of the heat, she added. The previously approved change had called for school opening and closing dates to be shifted gradually during the next three years until by 1975 classes started on Aug.
