Ray McHugh, assistant regis- trar, says there are three dis- tinct stages in becoming a stu- dent at the U of L admis- sion, registration and enrol- ment.

Instead of paying which is the average cost of an adult funeral in Lethbridge, the soci- ety, by arrangement with the funeral homes, offers a body disposal service at less than 5150. The Lethbridge society was formed 15 months ago in a na- tionwide movement to promote what it calls simple, dignified and low-cost funerals. Today, there are 23 memorial societies in the country with over 000 .nembers. NON-PROFIT A non-profit organization, the society maintains that: There should be no embalm- ing if the body is buried within 72 hours after death. It says embalming commits an indig- nity upon the body. There should be no cosmet- ology _ "making up" the face to look "natural" so the body can be displayed. The coffin should remain closed at all tunes. Burial should be private. Flowers are discouraged, and donations instead of flowers are to be sent to charitable organ- izations. MEMBERSHIP The Lethbridge society has over 100 members and the membership, ?8 for individuals and for families, is rapidly increasing, says Harold Shaw, secretary of the society. The high cost of dying has led some to accuse undertakers, or funeral directors, of being "em- otional blackmailers" since they are selling their merchandise when families cannot make sound judgment. Local funeral directors do not deny there are "black sheep" in the Industry and they are just as concerned as anyone. But to condemn the whole in- dustry is unjustified, they say. Student historians seek oldsters Some young people in L e t h- bridge are looking for some old people in Lethbridge. A group of Grade 10 social studies students at the Let h- bridge Collegiate Institute are compiling a history on L e t h- bridge during the years 1095- 1920 and they are looking for people who lived here during that period. The students are willing to In- terview people at the school or in their homes. Anyone who can assist the students in their project should call the LCI at 8 9606. "I have seen unethical funer- al says Rev. Harry Jost, president of the Lethbridge Ministerial Association. "But the funeral directors in Leth- bridge are perfect gentlemen." COST UP The cost of funerals has gone up about 50 per cent in the past 10 years, says Max Salmon, manager of Christensen Salmon Funeral Homes Ltd. During the same period, the Canada Con- sumer Price Index rose by 40 per cent. Funeral homes operate on a 24-hour basis and to make ends meet "they must charge the expense of days and sometimes weeks of costly overhead to a single a memorial society pamphlet says. "This they can do because competi- tion does not exist in their bus- iness. What grief stricken widow goes chopping for a fu- Martin Eros. Funeral Chap- els Ltd. employs 14 full-time staff because, "as it happened last year, we had to handle five funerals in one explains Derek Martin, vice-president of the company. DEMAND GREAT Willing one's body and organs to science and humanity is a growing trend but the demand still far exceeds the supply. For Instance, 400 blind Canadians are now waiting for eye trans- plants, the Canadian National Institute for the Blind says. The average cost of an adult funeral does not include cemetery charges, flowers, minister's honorarium, vault, tombstone and, in the case of cremation, crematorium charges and the cost of trans- porting the body to the nearest crematorium in Calgary. Including the cost of a grave, which is and the cost of a monument, which varies from 540 to but averages the total expenditure is well over CHEAPEST The cost of a funeral also varies, from about to 000 with all the trimmings. The funeral homes also offers a committal service at about but Mr. Martin does not rec- ommend it. "Most people find comfort in giving their loved ones decent funerals." Cremation Is unpopular In Southern Alberta, Mr. Martin says. He said his cousin, Jerry Martin, obtained permis- Martin Bros. Funeral Homes Ltd.

The council was told that project could be done all at once or staggered over lix years. However, it was noted that it would be cheaper, In the long run, to do all the work at one time. Council member Jim Nicol commented that the present system "isn't worth a damn. I've seen it take 16 minutes to fill a coffee pot." Residents should be notified within a short time on date for the meeting. Council felt that it could neither approve nor reject the idea until Coalhurst ratepayer had the opportunity to rnait their views known.
