Earlier this year television Hospital to report possession St. Michael's General Hospi- tal will report future cases of patients possessing "pot" to city police, according to hospi tal and police spokesmen. The problem of patients tak- ing illegal drugs and whether police should be informed was brought up at the last board meeting. At the meeting, chair' man Frank Byrne said hospi- tals have no choice but to re- port such cases to police. Lethbridge Municipal Hospi' tal already has a policy of re- porting such cases to police, LMH administrator Andy An- dreachuk said. Mr. Andreachuk and Sister Mary Clarissa, St. Michael's administrator, emphasized that people who seek treatment at the hospitals on "bad trips" will not be reported. If they are found in posses- sion of illegal drugs after being admitted as patients, they will be reported, the administrators Eaid. Police Chief Ralph Michelson said former mayor A. W. Shack leford, a member of St. Mich- ael's board, "unofficially told us after the board meeting that police will be contacted in the future." Chief Michelson said the two patients who were found smok- ing "pot" before the hospital board meetings were not re- ported to police. IT STARTS TOMORROW WHAT?

Sesame Street is to appear o the two stations starting Jan. CANCELLED CJOC-TV, Lethbridge an another CBC affiliate television station in Red Deer cancelled Sesame Street this fall. Regulations from the founda tion that produces the prograi prohibit it to be accompanied b advertising. Stations, therefore can't produce advertising rev enue with Sesame Street. The St. John and London sta tions returned the program as public service, he said. However, Mr. Juneau sai that the CRTC is willing to hear representations from any sta tion that feels it cannot affort to show the program. "In the CRTC regulation concerning Canadian conten there is a clause that say that should regulations cause hardship, the commission woul always be willing to conside that hardship and make an exceptions to the rules tha may be required." However, he added, "This has to be serious business. A sta tion would have to make a very rigorous case of hardship. The can't just be whining in publi that they're going to go bank rupt." ERROR The Herald reported incor rectly Nov. 22 that there is fed eral money available for sta tions that can show hardship This is not so. The CRTC could help a sta tion financially by lowering re- quirements for Canadian con tent, he said. Stations generally make more money by carrying American wograms, he said, because "the have a great quan tity of highly commercial mass audience programs for sale." Advertisers are more willing :o buy these programs than Ca nadlan programs and the U.S irograms actually cost less for Canadian networks to purchase, te said. CJOC-TV station manager, :eorge Brown, said Street would be carried if the CRTC would permit the station o include it in Canadian con- tent time' rather than as part of time allotted to the higher revenue producing foreign mainly American) content.

CLASS WITH A DIFFERENCE Carolyn Cunningham from the university is teacher for a day History class from an expert By GREG MclNTYRE Herald Staff Writer A Grade 7 class at Allan Watson School heard the story of "early man" from a Univer- sity of Lethbridge scientist Tuesday. It was port of a social studies class taught by Bill Oleksy, who believes students are more interested if they get it from an expert. Mr. Oleksy said the TJ of L las been "terrific" in cooper- ating with schools that wish to take advantage of univers i t y "experts" and other resources. EXCHANGE In exchange, the schools can co-operate with the university by pro v i d i n g classrooms in which education students can practice teaching, he said. Tuesday, Carolyn Cunning- ham, an anthropology student and archeology laboratory worker, told students that man came to North America from Asia over a mile wide "land bridge" that existed across the Bering Strait about years ago. Mrs. Cunningham said that while man has been on earth for about 2 million years, the oldest trace in North America is an arrow head that is about years old. ANIMALS CAME With man over the Bering land bridge came large ani- mals like mammoths, woolly Calgary Power will seek interim rate increase Calgary Power Ltd. will seek an interim rate increase when appears before the public util- ties board Jan. 16-19. The electric power company is to present its evidence to he board during those dates re- uesting an average rate in- rease of 15 per cent. The dates for the presenta- on of Calgary Power's evi- ence were set Tuesday at e reliminary hearing of the ap- lication in Calgary. Fourteen interveners present- ed themselves to the board, liey and other interveners are xpccted to be heard by the ooard la February. The board may grant Calgary 'ower an interim rate increase after hearing its evidence.

Some animals, like the prong- horned antelope, however, evolved on the North Ameri- can continent, said Mrs. Cun- ningham. When the Ice age ended and glaciers melted, the ocean level rose about 300 feet so now there is no land connecting Asia to Alaska. Mrs. Cunningham showed stu- dents plastic models of various kinds of arrow heads and ex- plained how later models were more effective for hunting. QUESTIONS Replying to student questions, she said although man used me- tal several thousand years ago, it was easier to make arrow heads out stone. She said early arrows did not have feathers on shafts like arrows do today, because ani- mals were driven into closed-in areas and shot at close range. The feathered shafts, while more accurate at long range, were unnecessary. The Social Studies class visit- ed the archeology lab at the U of L last week and saw early skeletons. Mr. Oleksy said if possible, he'd like to take them to the U of L library to look at anthropology literature. Saskatoon offers Games assistance By RICHARD BURKE Herald Staff Writer Lethbridge and Southern Al- berta can enpect "as much as- sistance as possible" from Sas- katoon if this area is success- ful in its bid to hold the 1975 Canada Winter Games, Saska- toon Mayor Bert Sears says. The offer came in a tele- phone interview with The Her- ald. Saskatoon held the 1971 Winter Games. If the 1971 Games wera any indication, Southern Alberta could expect nothing but good things from the event, Mayor Sears "It was one of the most successful events ever held he said. The impact of the Games has been a lasting one for the Sas- katchewan city. Skiing has now become i major winter sport there. A man-m a d e "mountain" was built for the Games. With the surplus from the Games, the city is now constructing a 50-meter swim- ming pool. Tourism and conventions have increased. Industrial development has come as a result of the Games. People went to Saskatoon for the first time during the Games from across Canada and throughout the world and were "amazed" at the facilities, Mayor Sears said. They weren't aware such a modern city existed there. The enthusiasm of the local people was worth noting too. "I have never seen such com- munity the mayor said. The business community con- tributed in both a financial and physical way. Firemen gave their free time to drive athletes around. "The pioneer spirit was most apparent throughout the prep- paration and the Mayor Sears said. Leading up to the Games, Saskatoon held a Lucky Dog lottery which netted about That amount was ap- plied toward an estimated op- erating deficit Ken Sauer, an advisor on the local Games committee board, said it turned out that pro- ceeds from the lottery made up the surplus from the Games. Mr. Sauer was an athletic ev- ent organizer for the Saskatoon Games. He said the local committee is considering a similar lottery If its bid is successful.

Mayor Sears said, "There was not one negative point in the entire Games." "It would come at a good time, when tourism is in the Mr. Smith says. The event "can't help but add to the demand for hotel-motel accommodations in the area." Mr. Smith would caution against the Games creating too much demand for accommoda- tion which might later fail into less frequent use. He said the regional concept of the Games is a "great exam- ple of what the south country can do if people can forget their petty differences" and inter- community competitive nature. Games bid boosted Southern Alberta's bid for the 1073 Canada Winter Games was given a shot in the arm by the Lethbridge Public School Board Tuesday. Trustees gave the Southern Alberta Recreation Council, la charge of seeking the games, the go-ahead to recruit stu- and teachers to collect names for a games petition. The group is attempting to get at least names in support of the games bid on the document to present to fed- eral officials that will visit Lethbridge Dec. 8.
