Closing of shops bylaw talk on tonight's council agenda In 13 homes Leaking water main cuts off weekend water A leaking water main valve is believed to have been the cause of disruption of water service to 13 Lethbridge homes this weekend. City officials said the leaking valve allowed water seepage which caused the main-pipe and the road above to sink in the water-saturated soil. Water service to the 13 homes in the 3200 block of Lakeridgc Blvd. was disconnected shortly before noon Saturday, when the settling pipe and road surface broke a six-inch branch line which had lo be closed to pre- vent further leakage and water damage. Service remained off until about 3 p.m. Sunday. It was again discontinued shortly after 5 p.m. when vet another leak was discovered. Water service remained off this morning as city work i crews al tempted to locate the leak. A city official said the seep- age raid settling had caused at least three two have been located and repairs could be made quickly as soon as the location of the third leak i.s known. i No estimate lias been given I for when the water service will be fui'iR'd on. or the road j which settled t h r e e-fcet in places will be repaired.

The deliberations begin at 4 p.m. when the closing of shops bylaw gets a thorough going- over. Council will consider the existing bylaw on a clause-by- clause basis with the objective of finalizing a new bylaw, at Mayor Andy Anderson's insis- tence, rather than leaving the issue for a new council to has- sle with. Several petitions, with vary- ing requests for inclusion in a new bylaw, will hover over the council table during the discuss- ions.

John sion n Syndicate Ltd., Monday de- clined specific comment on ru- mors that he will seek the Pro- gressive Conservative nomina- tion in the next federal elec- tion. Mr. Gogo said he was "quite concerned" of late about the situation in Canada ami the af- fairs of the Lethbridge con- stituency, which had made him "interested'.' in the reprcsenta- tion of the local riding.

Mr. Gogo did confirm that he had been approached about "doing something" about going after the nomination. Regarding the possibility of By RUDY HAUGENEDER Staff Writer Indian students seem appre- hensive about attending a white man's university. Dave Ayers, University of e t h b r i d g e co-ordinator of counselling services says this can be attributed to the bad rcatment Indians have suffer- ed at the hands of whites in the past. "if I were an Indian I'd be ;keptical about what a univer- ;ity has to he said. About a dozen Indian stu- dents are registered at the U of L, which suffered a low- er-t h a n-anticipated enrolment or the fall semester. U E i v e r sity administrators are currently studying a plan B'hich they hope will attract more Indian and white stu- lents. It is felt that one of the ma- or reasons for the lack of In- lian registrations is that In- lian students are wrongly-ad- vised at the high school level to take non-university pro- grams to simply obtain their diplomas. Because admission require- ments are less-severe than those at other Alberta univer- sities, the U of L waives the matriculation pre-requisite for many students. The university offers a ma- ture student admission pro- gram, which allows individuals who desire a university educa- tion but do not have the pre- requisites, an opportunity to enrol. To gain entry, students must be 21 a flexible regulation- and have been away from classroom instruction for at least two years. Applicants must provide written proof of their educa- tional desires in the form of letters of recommendation from responsible citizens. Surveys completed by the university show mature stu- dents, both Indian and white, have o u t-performed students coming straight from high school. The social sciences and hu-! inanities type of programs are favored by the majority of na- tive students. The transition from a re- serve (o a university setting is one of the major frustrations. faced by an Indian student. University counsellors say botli white and Indian student's from remote and isolated areas suffer similar frustrations when making the adjusiment. The department of Indian af- fairs finances Indian students who have been admitted to the university. Once a native student has registered he is immediately on his own. As with other stu- dents, no one makes sure class- es are attended or studies completed. University credits are offered on performance only. University counsellors say nou- that the Indian is aware tint a university education is obtainable, the quality of stu- dent enrolling is higher. Major A. F.
