The maximum temperature reached during the month was set Oct. 3, when the mercury peaked at 81.9 degrees. The all time record for October was logged Oct. 4, 1943 when the thermometer read 88.9 degrees. The low temperature for Oc- tober this year, 13.3 degrees on Oct. 7 was a record for that day, but a long way from the record low for October, 15 de- grees below zero set Oct. 25, 1919.

Pratte loses election bid in Hawaii Former Lethbridge Herald reporter Alf Pratte was recent- ly defeated in Ms attempt to get elected to the Hawaii state board of education. He was the only Republican seeking as (island- wide) seat on the 11-man board which sets policy for the ninth largest education system in the U.S. Mr. Pratte received votes but failed to capture one of three seats representing the city and county of Honolulu. A graduate of the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute and Brig- ham Young University, Mr. Pratte taught and worked for newspapers in Utah before moving to Hawaii in 1964. He is member of the Honolulu school district advisory coun- cil, appointed by the state gov- ernor.

Participating lodges included Lethbridge Lodge No. 2 IOOF, Dominion Rebekah No. 41, Faith Rebekah No, 93 and Theta Rho girls. Mr. Hodges, 91, joined the Oddfellow organization in 1905 while living in Illinois and he moved to the Barons district to farm in 1913. While a member of that com- munity, Mr. Hodges farmed, operated an oil bulk station, owned a general store and dance hall operation, and was weighmaster of the first town weigh station. Mr. Hodges also drove mo- torized and horse rawn school buses for the Barons school dis- trict for many years. A collection of pictures of the pioneer years in the Barons area are now on display in the Gait Museum, courtesy of Mr. Hodges. An active member of the United Church in Barons, and later in Lethbridge where he moved to in 1952, he was hon- ored by McKillop United Church on his 91st birthday. As is often the case, the worth of a man is known best by his friends.

This analysis of the situation tarns a major part of the Old- man River Regional Planning Commission's study of econo- mic conditions in the 'Pass. In the section devoted to rec- reation and tourism, the study points out this obvious incon- fact that tlie 'Pass itself is not attractive and has developed tew tourist activities or amenities, despite the fact that the potential is there and surrounding areas have become beehives of tourist activity. The specific problems in the 'Pass, the study says, relate to Persistence pays, dream comes true Some people went out trick- tversity section while coatin- or-treating on Halloween, but uing an automptives instructor. Hal Hoffman went to Edmonton for the culmination of a 16- year old dream. Mr. Hoffman, 36, received his bachelor of education degree at the University of Alberta fall convocation Oct. 31, the result of a project he started in Win- nipeg in I860 at the Grade 10 level in an adult education program. Today be is an automotives instructor at the Lethbridge Community College, but he says at that time he had no idea what the future held for him. "I guess I960 was a big year for me, he said. "I got married, received my auio mechanics certificate and at the same time I started seriously thinking about beccming a teacher." He was 26 then, and had one serious obstacle in his path: His education had stepped at Grade 9. "I lived in a pretty rural part of Manitoba when I was young, and my parents' farm was quite a ways from the nearest high school, Mr. Hoff- man said. "And in the winter we were snowbound, so travel was impossible." He had taken Grade 9 by correspondence, but could not continue into high school the same way, so he started a ID- year stint on the farm. By 1960 his varying interests had taken him to Winnipeg, where he completed an auto mechanics trade course. He then started Grade 10 and 11 via night school, and added several summer sessions at a Winnipeg technical school to give him a vocational educa- tion certificate. He taught in the technical school for a time before moving to Lethbridge in 19M. He finished his Grade 12 at ICC, and in the fall of 1964 enrolled in the college's tmi- Gilbert Paterson may be first 'community school5 -Gilbert Paterson Elementary- High School may be- come Lethbridge's first true its prin- cipal, Gerry Wilson, told 65 delegates to a recreation con- ference here last weekend. Mr. Wilson defined a com- munity school as "a building which is only used for standard education from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and is employed during the rest of the day as a community centre designed to handle many other activities." The conference centred on the theme, The Lighted Schoolhousc, dealing with com- prehensive community use of schools. It was co-sponsored by the University of Lethbridge Society of Physical Education Students and department oi physical education, "We're pretty happy with thn way the meeting said Dr. Jrrn Day, physical educa- tion department chairman. "We think we've got a lot of people starting to think about how schools could be used better." Delegates came from Ed- monton, Calgary and many southern Alberta communities. Featured speaker for the symposium was Gary, Penning- ton, an education professor at the University of British Co- lumbia. Mr. Pennington said the com- munity school was a logical extension of current develop- ments in schools, in education and in community recreation programs. School buildings would be open from perhaps 6 a.m. through to as late in the eve- ning as they were needed for activities. And they would not just bo open when people wanted to use them: the schools and com- munity recreation leader" would take an active role in developing programs to offer is mwm said the library could be plan- ned to supplement the current city library branch office, now open only a few hours every day. Mr. Wilson said playgrounds, with modification (paving, ten- nis courts, outdoor basketball facilities) could be used as a community recreation centre; existing industrial arts, home economics and typing facilities could be used as part of an adult education or hobby centre on a school neighborhood basis; and other facilities desired by Comedy of human survival topic of U of L lectures in non educational hours. All facilities would be used all the time and special equipment and areas could be built into the schools specifical- ly for the community activities. A film called To Touch A Child was shown to delegates, describing the commun- ity-school development in Flint, Michigan. Schools there have been designed with activities in addition to education in mind: their equipment can handle everything their local community needs and wants. In addition, the schools have vice-principals who have re- sponsibility not only for some standard educational activities during the daytime hours, but also for 4 p.m. to midnight community activity administra- tion (their jobs start in the Lethbridge has a joint use agreement at present, between the two school boards and the parks and recreation depart- ment. However, it agrees only to open schools when requested, and has no one charged with actually developing programs for after-school use school buildings. tn a Herald interview, Mr. Wilson expanded on his hopes for his school: "This all depends on both what the community surround- ing Paterson and our teachers he said, "But we're at a crossroads at this school because our li- brary and gynasium facilities have been bad for years, and are getting hopelessly farther behind now. "One of my immediate con-: cerns is that when we plan al-j network into separate radio (orations or additions- (o our and television divisions because facilities, that wo also plan for radio and television operate un- their potential use by the com- der different broadcast rcgula- Imunily let's make sure we tions and in different competl- make the right kind of live markcls. changes."

During school hours and other hours, school rooms could also be used as day care cen- tres where parents, "particu- larly the mothers who are by could leave their children while they upgraded their job training either at Paterson or elsewhere in the city.

CBC promotion for Jack Crame A Lethbridge native son, 42- year-oid Jack Craine, Monday was named managing director oi radio for the English ser- vices division of the Canadian Broadcasting Cyrpvir. Craine was appointed to the position when the CBC an-- nounced it has split its English His xdsit, concerning the general topic, The Comedy of Human Survival, is j o i ntly sponsored by the U of L biology department, Colloquium Stud- ies and the English depart- ment. Dr, Meeter specialises in comparative literature, is flu- ent in Spanish, French and Ger- man and is writing at present about the philosophy of bio- logy. Thursday from 2 to 3 p.m. in ihe Colloquium Room he will take part in an open discussion, and Friday from 2 to p.m. he will offer another open ses- sion in the Science Building faculty lounge. He will speak privately to several classes at other times during his visit. Mr. Wilson hopes to ask Pat- erson's home and school as- sociation how they would react to a school equipped as a com- munity centre, and suggested the department of youth could make a valuable coiitribut ion by arranging a door-to-door in- terview survey in the Paterson area to see how other people react. He added it was important to understand that such complex school construction projects would not just he financed by school districts: the city and likely the provincial govern- ment could also be called upon to provide some finances. In 1968-1967 he took a leave of absence to attend the Uni- versity of Alberta for a year, and since then has continued to take several courses a year at the University of Lethbridge. "I guess this course-taking routine has become a habit with me, because I want to take more he said. "1 might take the diploma course ia guidance counselling at the University of Calgary next summer, or maybe some more U of L programs." History has become a major interest, he said, and he may seek a BA in history from the U of L. In the meantime, he plans to remain at the college: 'I'm happy being a teacher." the (act that no serious effort has been made to develop the tourist potential, of the arcs, de- spite the fact it is located in a region thai generated an esti- mated five million tourist vis- its in 1988. Tho 'Pass has instead concen- trated on industry, notably coal, with the result that it suffers from pollution and blight. The lack of tourist facilities means the area is at a disad- vantage when competing with Banff and Waterton for reve- nue from this source. It is also handicapped be- cause it is not located on as major a highway as Banff and there is no highway between the two park complexes. The study also looks at the over all situation. In the in- troduction to this section it stresses the need for a broad perspective. What is required, it says, is provincial planning strategy. Regional development planning is relevant and functional only when carried out in a contest of provincially developed strat- ify guidelines. Broadly based planning and co-operation, it is suggested, would eliminate conflict which can, and does, exist between Policemen complete courses Members of the Lethbridge city police force who recently completed in service training programs include the following.

This larger view of situ- ation includes the contention there has teen increasing pres- sure from conservationists to put a halt to the urbanization of the existing national The conservationists' view is that this development has al- ready reached an undesirable level. If this is the case, the study says, and if the preservation of Ihe'parks as nature sanctu- aries is felt to be a desirable goal, then tourist activity must be redirected to other areas. This means the development of the tourist potential in the 'Pass is a regional, rather than a purely local problem, and so- lutions must include the assis- tance and co-operatioa of the federal government. What can be done? Pressure on the national parks could be alleviated by developing the Crowsnest Pass, if an over-all plan for the Rocky Mountain jgion were formulated. The study proposes such a plan be done, emphasizing the creation of a noith south ori- ented "recreation cor r i d o r" from Jasper national Park down through Yellowstone Park in the U.S. Tliis, of course, broadens the planning to international scope. An integral part of the plan would be the upgrading of high- way facilities in a north-south direction. At present, roads (varying from excellent to poor) exist between Banff and Water- ton, with the exception of one short stretch just north of Wa-. erton. Within this general concept, the study says, a plan should Iso be developed for the 'Pass itselfj administered by some form of regional government, that would co-ordinate the pol- icies of the various agencies in- volved. The over all concept re- quires the co-operation of local, provincial and two federal gov- ernments. It may take some time before it is implemented.
