Students' Assistance Fund Low, Special Grant May Be Requested By JIM WILSON Herald Education Writer The Alberta Students' Assis- tance Board is running out of money, The Herald has learn, ed, but with any luck the de- partment of education will be persuaded to refill the SAB cof- fers With another million. Preliminary figures show de- mand for assistance is up 40 per cent over last year, and the figure could go still-higher be- fore the year is up. The SAB was given 700 for its operations, this year (down million from.its ini- tial which it uses for grants, scholarships, bursaries and interest payments on stu- dent loans, which are interest- free to'students until they leave university or college. Students' assistance officials say they will have no more money by mid-November, which could affect the grants portion of its programs, but would not affect the availabil- ity of straight student loans. (The same thing has happen- ed in the past: the board ran put of money in January two years ago, and in December last year, and was given spe- cial government warrants to cover it for the rest of the year.) The SAB meets in Edmonton Thursday to discuss its need for additional funds this year, and will likely make immedi- QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Certified Denial Mechanic Capitol Furniture Bldg.

SAB officials hope this will mean there are no gaps in its cheques have held in Edmonton by the provincial treasury board in past years until extra grants were announced to cover them.

By DEAN BLAIR EDITOR'S NOTE Dean Blair is associate professor of music 'at the University of Lethbridge. The University of Lethbridge Concert Series opened its sea- son Monday night by present- ing the University of Alberta String Quartet at the Yates Memorial Centre. It was an auspicious opening with a large and enthusiastic audience to hear an extremely well-played program. Deviating somewhat from the usual formal recital procedure, each of the evening's works was prefaced by a short state- ment of explanation by one of Jie players. Although a format of this type could easily be con- a tasteful and genuine way that it served to enhance the rap- port with the audience rather than detract from the perform- ance. The program opened with the Quartet, Opus 7 by Bela Bartok. The work is in three move- ments to be played without a break. From an initial slow movement it gradually gains momentum and speed to the end. Bartok quartets are the quartet has been together a relatively short time. The second work of the eve- ning was a short composition by the Spanish composer Joaquin Turnia which accord- ing to the prefacing remarks would be translated as The Prayer of the Bullfighter. Full of color and contrast, it alternated sections depicting the excitement of the bull ring with those reflecting exotic sup- test of any string quartet and i plications. Colorful and hnpres- the test was passed with high I statistic, it made a delightful contrast to the intensity of the honors. From the careful handling of each subtle detail to the con- trolled shaping of the overall form of the work every aspect of the performance displayed superb artistry and musician- ship. The ensemble of the group was near perfection.

Then the city decided not to renew its grant of to the John Howard Society which meant another serious tuck in the budget. Fortunately, three "friends" of the society donated which has helped. Another individual supplied the court worker's salary until funds are available. But Dave Rodgers, caseworker, is very concerned. "If we don't get the funds this year through the Uni- ted Appeal I'm afraid the So- ciety here will fold. This is un- fortunate for at all times I'm working with up to a dozen men. They rMy on the Society to help them rehabilitate. "In all areas of Canada, John Howard caseworkers, working along preventive lines, have helped m-n reject a life of dissipate before it could have any damaging results." The Diapulse emits mea- sured bursts of high-intensity electromag.ne.tic. energy through the drum-shaped treat- ment head attached to the main cabinet. Depth of pene- tration can be selected through a range of six steps, as can the rate of the pulsations. Dr. Lundgren said that while the value of the machine as a healing aid was well known in North America, it first achieved .public notice when the State of Israel started using it to treat their war wounded. Dr. Bornstein, who worked in a hospital in Tel-Aviv reported that when the Diapulse ma- chines were used on burn cases, healing was accelerated remarkably so that the only cases left on wards after two months were those with com- plicated face would require gery. injuries which extensive sur- Bartok. The final work for the eve- ning was Beethoven's Quartet Opus 18 No. 4 in C minor. This quartet, an early one, stffl re- tains many Haydnesque quali- ties as do many of Beethoven's early works. Its performance, at least the first two movements, was a slight let-down from the heights attained in the Bartok, and at times in the second (Scherzo) movement there was a slight uneveness in the quality of the delicate staccato notes characteristic of the move- ment. The final two movements, the Menuetto and the Allegro, re- gained the verve and delight of tlie spirit of the work and brought the performance to a fitting close. For dessert, as an encore, the quartet played the ever-popu- lar Andante Cantabite from Tchaikovsky's Opus 11. It was beautifully played and its simple and appealing lyricism made a convincing rounding off of a fine evening of chamber music. 100 Copici plus tax 1269 Third THE FINEST SE1ECTION OF WIGS In Southern Alberta DROP IN AND BROWSE AROUND!
