That about sums up the feel- ings of the board of directors of the Lethbridge and District Exhibition Association follow- ing official transfer of of federal funds for the expan- sion of the exhibition pavilion. The loan document showing the transfer was signed by fed- eral agriculture Minister Bud Olson, Cy McAndrews, assistant deputy minister of agriculture for the farm and rural resource development section, Stan Tif- fin, president of the exhibition association, Mayor Andy An- derson and Andy Andrews, manager of the association, Mayor Anderson signed the document because the city has guaranteed Lhe loan. Construction started three weeks ago andi is expected to be completed before the end of this year- The addition will double the space of the present pavilion. Mr. Tiffin said the present fa- cility was not large enough for agricultural industries to pro- mote their products and at the same time allow livestock breeders a chance lo display their animals.

Mr. McAndrews, speaking for Agriculture Minister Dr. Hugh Homer; said the province ac- knowledged that Ihe Leihbridge Exhibition Board, is a leader in Alberta. It demonstrates to Ihe people, both urban and rural, that there are interlocking relation- ships and communications that must be retained for the better- ment of all people throughout the province, he said. He said it is fitting that the While it is difficult to say what the committee's final re- port will recommend, it ap- pears at this stage that some kind of information clearing house should be established.

This service would be geared to detecting any problem that might hamper academic abil- ity. "The pre school years are the time when such a facility is needed. This is where we can get to a problem and solve it while it is still Dr. Gall said the need for such a centre is borne out by numerous studies which have shown a minimum of 10 to 15 per cent of students entering Grade 1 already have some kind of learning problem. In many cases, there is someone who is aware the youngster is burdened by a problem the doctor knows he is having trouble hearing or social counsellor knows he is having problems with parents the teacher doesn't know.

LCC seeks fee liike The Lethbridge Community College will seek a per se- mester fee increase for most students for the 1973-74 school year. The increase, if approved, will see semester fees for stu- denls in liberal education, busi- ness education and nursing in- creases to S75 from S70, Tui- tion will remain nt 540 per se- mester for agriculture and [eduiicnl-vocutional students.
