"Some are even iliiterale in their native can speak it. but are unable to write it. Several are just learn- ing how to hold a pencil."

"The weather is very good." The Ludings, like many Tibetan fariilies, have spent the last five years in a refugee camp in northern India. They were forced from their home- land by political unrest. They have relatives in the United States. They don't know where. "My sister is married to rcy husband's said Chfm- ey.

For this election, there are eligible voters, up from! who registered for the' last civic election in 1969. At that tune, only 33 per cent votetl, representing the lightest turnout in 20 years. The stakes are considerably higher this time with represen-! tatives required to fill all civic! seats except those on the airxili-' ary hospital board, which were filled by acclamation. j Elaine Thacker and Stan Ver-! linden are the auxiliary hospi-j tal board members.

Returning officer John Gerla said he has nearly finalized ar- rangements, with about 160 poll- ing clerks and deputy return- ing officers. One of each is re- quired to staff each of the no taiilcs set up in polling sta- tions across the city. Voters are reminded that they are not required to vote for the full number of seats vacant. For alderman, any number of candidates up to and including eight can have an X marked beside flic names. if more lhan eight are marked, the ballot is spoiled and is dis- regarded. Fifteen candidates are running for the eight alder- manic offices. There are eight candidates hoping to fill them. For separate school Iward, seven candidates are running for five scats.

"Thev really enjoy said Mrs. Waiters." "And they are learning a lot 1 from it. It is ideal for what we are doing here." When they complete their orientation course, they will probably go to work on farms in the Taber area. The jobs i will be arranged by the Can- ada Manjxm'er Centre in Leth- bridge. Canada Manpower is also sponsoring the special courses the Tibetants are tak- ing. A smaller group of Tibetan immigrants came to the Taber area earlier this year and went to work on farms after a brief orientation program. "Without exception, all the employers are pleased with the way these people are working out." said Jim Kanishiro, a se- nior CMC counsellor. "They work well and they have a good attitude. They are vciy conscientious." The curriculum consists of an English course, with the em- phasis on communication, orientation to Canada, house- keeping, social services, basic agriculture and driver-training. Although the class has been under way for only two weeks, the teachers say they can al- ready see many accomplish- ments. "They are definitely making progress." said Mrs. Walters, "especially the ones who have some knowledge of English." "Basically what we are doing is teaching them how to adjust to living in Canada. "The fact that they want very much to learn will make it said Mrs. Walters. CLIFF BLACK, Certified Dentnt Mechanic BLACK DENTAL IAE lower Level MCDICAt DENTAt BtDG.
