Find Out In The Herald's Next "CHINOOK" INCLUDED WITH THE TUESDAY, NOV. 28, ISSUI OF THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Smoke prices to rise Cigarette smokers will be further penalized for their habit starting Monday. Prices will be increased to 7( cents per package of 25, al 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 now charge 70 cents. The price hike stems from a 57 cents per cigarettes in- crease announced recently by Imperial Tobacco and Hoth- 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't 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- arette 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 days 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 ant challenged more in the schoo of today. The day usually begins with a game of "show and tell" aimed it 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 Jig's ear. Before class actually gels 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 mncipal 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 vork.

NEW YORK FUR AND DRESS SHOP 604A 3rd AVENUE SOUTH PHONE 327-3J74 Gruenwald asks ior another Govt. will reconsider P.E.P. funds for LCC Herald Legif'.alive 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 govenunent 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 630 studenis 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 Lethbridge was without doubt the most widely accepted 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 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 500 available, jobs, yet fill only 100 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 Lelhbridge 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 bridge, also find a new name for the Westbridge subdivision. letter from the provin- cial board of health saying the secondary sewage treatment plant meets provincial stand- ards, as does the effluent pro- duced by the plant and dumped into the Oldman River.

The students get to choose whatever song they want to sing. God Save The Queen and Jesus Loves Me were at the top of the charts for Grade 1, on this day at least. In the classroom, the atmosphere is informal. Students rather than long, straigh rows. There is group participation in most exercises and, on occa sion, students become teachers posing their own questions to the class. This is done mainly in mathematics. Students are not forced into working in one particular area during the work periods. During a language arts period, some students concentrated on a 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 anc forth, discuss the problem and attempt a solution. Students are encouraged to choose what tliey want to do and, once they make the decision, 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 discussion and suggestion type of learning as opposed to a teacher showing a student how something is done over and over until 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. It could be only a slight hearing problem or it may be back. 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 special education class. Colored blocks, play telephones and the like are in constant use. Above all, the students seem to be enjoying the learning process and people learn a lot more when they like what they are unemployment in Alberta." However, the minister said in view of the number of applications again this year, he would reconsider the that has been allocated LCC for the program.

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."

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 convictions 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 ear driven by Mr. Worme veered from Ihe road and collided with a parked vehicle that had all of its lights working. "He just fell asleep for a court was told. Judge Hudson warned Mr. Worme he could go to jail for a minimum of six months if he did not quit driving while his licence was suspended.

Robert Thornton, information office for the state of Washington, told 125 persons attending the Alberta Potato Growers annual meeting Thursday that there is less variability in processed product. He said, conversely, that there is not as much consistency in the fresh product. In fact, various parts of a single potato differ in quality. Whether the product is processed or fresh, said Mr. Thornton, in order to sell potatoes 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 liousewife what her mother liad to do in the home. The industry even adds sweetness, color or flavor, or, il it suits the tasle of the consumer, takes the same elements out of the processed product. Today, many housewives think of a box when they think potatoes because more and nore women are being raised n the city. Their mothers likely didn't use fresh potatoes as much so they were never really accustomed to the fresh on 1 Also, the industry has assured the young housewife of a good edible product that can be prepared without any real knowledge of cooking. AIDS RESTAURANTS Mr. Thornton said the processed potato has helped the restaurant and hotel trade tremendously. "With the high cost of labor, It would be very difficult for the trade ii prepare fresh potato product in the quantity he said. "Fresh potatoes have been used in specialty restaurants and family restaurants and likely will continue to be used. It is often a drawing card." Mr. Thornton said researchers will, by cultural methods, haw to tailor potatoes to the specific needs of the industry. VARIED REQUIREMENTS The potato needed by the chipping industry is not out same as the potato needed by the granulated industry. "All segments of the processed potato industry need a product that will store well (potatoes are provide a good product and is he said. Mr. Thornton said there are about acres of potatoes in Washington. "Professional potato men who lease land on various farms and grow only potatoes, supplement regular growers.
