Find Out In The Herald's Next "CHINOOK" INCLUDED WITH THE TUESDAY, NOV. 28, ISSUE OF THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Smoke prices to rise Cigarette smokers will be further penalized for their habit starting Monday. Prices will be increased to 70 cents per package of 25, at most Lethbridge stores. That's an increase of five cents at most stores. Midnight smokers will have to pay even more because cig- arette vending machines will soon be charging 75 cents. They mow charge 70 cents. The price hike stems from a 57 cents per cigarettes in- crease announced recently by Imperial Tobacco and Roth- mans of Canada Ltd. The increase represents an additional cost to the retailer of 1.5 cents per package of 25. The two other major cigar- ette manufacturers in Canada Benson and Hedges Ltd. and MacDonalds Ltd. are expect- ed to follow suit in the near future. The nickel price increase re- sulted because most retailers did not boost the price of cig- arettes the last time the price was hiked more than a year ago. About a two-cent per pack- age increase should have taken place then. But it seems pennies don'l have value and are bothersome to handle to boot. Hence stores left the prices alone. The combined increases rep- resent the nickel difference be- tween Monday and Sunday cig. arettc prices. Pipe tobacco, cigars and other smoking oddities will not increase in price not even the price of roll-your-own to- bacco will go up. The price of cigarette papers will not in- crease either.

SONY LLOYDS DUAL NORESCO McKillop students take it easy while learning A day with a Grade I class Even classrooms change with time By RON CALDWELL Herald Staff Writer Today's classroom is a differ ent place than it was in the day: of the 3 Rs and the h i c k o r y stick. A day-long visit with a Grade 1 class at George McKillop Ele mentary School indicates stu dents are regimented less am challenged more in the schoo" of today. The day usually begins with a game of "show and tell" aimed at encouraging the youngsters to notice tilings around them and also to break down the bar riers of shyness which may exist. The items brought to class range from a cap pistol to a pig's ear. Before class actually gets un- der way, the students gather on the floor of the hallway for regular morning activities. This particular morning fea- tured a "pep talk" from the principal who told the first-time students how good they were acting when they came to school and how he was sure they would keep up the good work.

Students sit Suspended driver fined A Coaldale man was given one last chance to stay out of jail Friday after he pleaded guilty to a charge of driving while suspended. Court was told Campbell Worme had a record of three convictions for driving" while suspended and at least six con' victions for impaired driving during the past five years. The most recent charge against Mr. Worme arose from an accident near Tempest Oct. 28 which resulted in injury to three persons. Police told the court a car iriven by Mr. Worme veered from the road and collided with a parked vehicle that had all of its lights working. "He just "ell asleep for a court was told. Judge Hudson warned Mr. fforme he could go to jail for i minimum of six months if IB did not quit driving while lis licence was suspended.

There is group participation in most exercises and, on occa sion, students become teachers posing their own questions to the class. This is done mainlj in mathematics. Students are not forced inti working in one particular area during the work periods. During a language arts period, some students concentrated on workbook, others worked on drawing and printing while oth ers involved themselves with puzzles. There is a constant inter change of ideas as the students work in any one particular area. They move back am forth, discuss the problem and attempt a solution. Students are encouraged to choose what they want to do and, once they make the deci sion, they are expected to stick to it. The most noticeable aspect of the present Grade 1 classroom is that there seems to be much more emphasis on the discus- sion and suggestion type of learning as opposed to a teach- er shotting a student how some- thing is done over and over un- til the student gets it right. Not all students who enter Grade 1 are ready for it and provision has been made for this at McKillop.

The special education class is aimed at helping the child cope with the problem before moving back into the regular classroom atmosphere. The game type of learning, which is evident throughout the Grade 1 classrooms, comes into play in a big way in the spe- cial education class. Colored blocks, play telephones and the like are in constant use. Above all, the students seem to be enjoying the learning pro- cess and people learn a lot more when they like what they are doing. Gruenwald asks for another Govt. will reconsider P.E.P. funds for LCC Herald Legislative Bureau EDMONTON Labor Min- ister Bert Hohol said Friday he will reconsider funds for a Priority Employment Program for Lethbidge Community Col- lege this winter. Dick Gruenwald bridge West) asked in the leg- islature if the government would consider injecting an- othsr into the P.E.P. that starts Dec. 14 at LCC to allow the college to ac- cept an additional 500 appli- cants. Mr. Gruenwald said the P.E.P. at LCC was cut back dramatically from last year when about 650 students were enrolled. For the program this winter, the college has only been able to enrol about 130 students be- cause of budget limitations imposed by the provincal gov- ernment. Mr. Gruenwald said, "Last year the P.E.P. program in Lethbndge was without doubt the most widely aorepted in the province but has been cut back this year by about one-quarter. Dr. Hohol said money for P.E.P. has been distributed throughout Alberta on the basis of unemployment. "Lethbridge is, if not the least unemployed area, cer- tainly one of the areas with least unemployment in Alber- ta." However, the minister said in view of the number of applica- tions again this year, he would reconsider the that has been allocated LCC for the pro- gram. James Henderson askiwin-Leduc) asked "What on earth are we talking about spending million on a wint- er unemployment program, when there are job vacancies in industries such as trailer Dr. Hohol replied that the government is trying to co-or- dinate job training with avail- able jobs, but still has a lot of work to do. "It's a complex business. You can have 500 people unemploy- ed in an area and 300 available jobs, yet fill only MX) because: the people haven't got the skills or the competence for those particular vacancies." Hassle growing over rezoning Another element will be added to the rezoning hassle in north- east Lethbridge when city coun- cil reconsiders the matter Mon- day. Several letters are on the agenda from prospective home- owners in the area persons hoping to buy the semi-detached houses proposed for'the disput- ed land. At the last council meeting, the other side was who now own homes near the land up for rezoning. They pro- tested that any kind of residen- tial development other than sin- gle family housing would be detrimental to the area. Some of the 14 families who could move into the semi-de- tached houses (if they are built) suggest other houses in the city are beyond their means. "We have looked at dozens of places and the ones that are liveable come at such a ridiculous price that we couldn't possibly one family says. Another family hoping to move into the area says, "We do not understand why some people would try to hold young people from getting onto their own two feet." Council defeated the rezoning bylaw two weeks ago by a tie vote, stopping development of the semi detached houses. That bylaw is expected to get further consideration. Council will also deal with: A motion from Aid. Cam Barnes that a Calgary archi- tect, hired to come up with six house designs for West Leth- Researcli stepped up on processed potatoes Fresh spuds on way out By RIC SWIHART Herald Staff Writer The fresh potato market Is taking a back seat to processed potatoes and by 70 per cent of the potatoes eaten in North America will come from cans, packages and freezers, according to a U.S. expert. Robert Thornton, information office for the state of Wash- ington, told 125 persons attend- ing the Alberta Potato Grow- ers annual meeting Thursday that there is less variability in processed product. He said, conversely, that there is not as much consisten- cy in the fresh product. In fact, various parts of a single pota- to differ in quality. Whether the product is pro- cessed or fresh, said Mr. Thornton, in order to sell pot- atoes in quantity, the indsutry must sell quality. This is the aim of the extensive research being done in Canada and the U.S. He said the processed potato product does for the young housewife what her mother had to do in the home. The industry even adds sweetness, color or flavor, or, if it suits the taste of the con- sumer, takes the same elements out of the processed product. Today, many housewives think of a box when they think potatoes because more and more women are being raised in the city. Their mothers like- ly didn't use fresh potatoes as much so they were never really accustomed to the fresh prod- uct. Also, the industry has assur- ed the young housewife of a good edible product that can be prepared without any real knowledge of cooking. AIDS RESTAURANTS Mr. Thornton said the pro- cessed potato has helped the restaurant and hotel trade tremendously. "With the high cost of labor, it would be very difficult for the trade to pre- pare fresh potato product in the quantity he said. "Fresh potatoes have been used in specialty restaurants and family restaurants and like- ly will continue to be used. It is often a drawing card." Mr. Thornton said research- ers will, by cultural methods, have to tailor potatoes to the specific needs of the industry.

American cattlemen fined Two American cattlem e n were each fined in Leth- >ridge provincial judge's court Friday when they pleaded guil- y to entering Canada by avoid- 'ng customs examination. Stanley Ives and his brother Sydney told the court they had >een ordered to re enter the Jnited States and clean the railer of a cattle liner in ivhich they were transporting certified disease free cattle.
