Find Out In The Herald's Next "CHINOOK" INCLUDED WITH THE TUESDAY, NOV. 28, ISSUI OF THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD No local students ask for morning-after pill A medication known as the "morning-after pill" is not readily available to Lethbridge college and university students, even though it has been used with "100 per cent success" at the University of Alberta and other universities. The morning-after pill is who leave college or university generally give "personal reasons" for their action which mean lack of money, discontent or a death in the family and so on or pregnancy. Schools in the city have adopted a "hands off" attitude in this it serves to prevent conception bv inducing bleeding. DANGERS Dr. Cookson said, however there are potential dangers in the use of DES. Some women will lie aboir when intercourse took place and if the pill is not after intercourse to prevent pregnancy. There have been anout 100 instances where the pill has been used at the U of A and, according to medical officials there, it has a 100 per cent success rate. Dr. Frank Cookson, acting director of student health services at the U of A, said said there are only a few booklets dealing with sex matters available to high school students. Most of those deal with venereal disease rather than birth control. Dr. Cookson said the "morning-after pill" is not a method of birth control. Taken within 72 hours of unprotected within a specific time period, it will not prevent pregnancy. Several members of the Canadian Medical Association suspect DES causes vaginal cancer in the daughters of mothers who have taken extended dosages of the drug, it was reported have been no repeat customers. "After they use it once, they usually go to some kind of he said. NO ONE ASKED At least one reason that the drug, diethystilbestrol or DBS, has not appeared here, as it has in several other post-secondary education institutions, is that no one has asked for it. No pills, either morning-after or birth control, are distributed through health offices at the University of Lethbridge or the Lethbridge Community College. However, at the U of L, female students seeking birth control devices can usually obtain them through one of five doctors who visit the U of L on a regular basis. The university itself is not directly involved in the matter. Male contraceptive devices are available in the washrooms. PKIVILEGED Officials at the U of L declined to release figures on the number of female students seeking birth control devices through the doctors. The figures are regarded as "privileged information." Commenting on the availability of the "morning-after a spokesman at the U of L said that "no one apparently has ever asked for it." The university administration has set no policy on whether such materials should or should not be made available. BOOKLETS ONLY Officials at LCC said the only involvement the college has in this area is providing booklets and other materials on birth control and venereal disease. "We provide nothing said Jim McNeil, director of student services. "It never occurred to us that we would meet a need by doing so." However, the booklets which are available are used quite extensively, he said. There are no figures available of the number of girls who are forced to drop out because of degree i accelera A decision is expected in December or January on whether the University of Lethbridge will be pressured into offering a shortened degree program. Dr. Bill Beckel, president ol the U of L, and Dr. Owen Holmes, academic vice president, met with officials of the Alberta Universities Commission earlier this week to outline the university's opposition to offering a 30 course degree program along the present 40-course program. Dr. A. M. Kristjanson, academic planning officer with the commission, told The Herald that the U of L presented its case well and the commission will study its situation before making a decision. STRONG PERSUASION Dr. Kristjanson said the commission has "strongly suggested" the U of L consider the shorter program. "The commission does not have the authority to order anyone to institute a shorter he said. "But we do have the power to decide on whether we will allocate funds for the fourth year and this is a pretty persuasive 'ight tes He said if the commission decides the U of L should offer the 30 course degree program taking the U of L's stand into consideration they will be told that financial support for the present fourth year will be withdrawn unless they offer a three year program. The University of Calgary has been told the same thing. The University of Alberta has an optional three year program in addition to the traditional four year program. Dr. Beckel, who was unavailable for comment on the meeting, has already taken a public stand against a three year degree program at the U of L. He said the university cannot shorten its present program if it is to fulfill its objectives. "The addition of the 30-course degree program would distort, out of all proportion, the character of the university and would be unreasonable for both the university and its he said last week. Dr. Beckel said such a move would change the character of the U of mJF Ix HHT DR. WAL rebults e its diffici Idealism sometimes inter feres with practicality.

Gut issues ignored says author Worth blamed as the core of prob- lems of the Native Friendship Society of Southern Alberta which operates the Lethbridge Friendship Centre. The friendship society has, since its inception about three- years ago, been plagued by an assortment of problems which stem from a non-workable con- stitution, some 50 persons at- tending a society public meet- ing in Lethbridge Thursday were told by former centre ex- ecutive-director Veronica Scott. In addition, personality con- flicts among board members has reduced its effectiveness. A committee of nine persons was selected from the meeting to form a committee to re-vamp the constitution. The meeting also endorsed a revised eight-member board of directors which were selected at a meeting about two weeks ago. The constitution committee hopes to draft a workable con- stitution which will outline the society's objectives, and help natives who visit and live in the city. By RON CALDWELL Herald Staff Writer Most of the reaction to the Worth Commission Report on Educational Planning has only skimmed the surface without getting into the real "gut is- sues of what the report is try- ing to says Dr. Walter Worth, author of the report. He told the largest crowd ever to attend a meeting of the Southern Alberta Council on "Public Affairs Thursday that reaction to what he sees as the two key sections of the report have been mainly concerned with the periphery. "The sections that deal with what we are trying to rection and process have not really been favorite areas of study or said Dr. Worth. "I think this is understand- able but I hope at the next stage of reaction they will start thinking about things which are more important." People have been hung up on minor mechanical points rath- er than the overall objective of what education should be do- ing, he added. However, these factors will not slow down government im- plementation of various recom- mendations in the report, he said in an interview with The Herald.
