Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 10, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta iw me HEKALU Wednesday, October 10, 1973 That's using your head RICK ERVIN photo Joe Maynes, a worker for Glen Little Construction, buries his head in the sand. He just can't take any more. It's two hours until he goes home and he's just finished his last coffee break. In reality, he's checking the depth of a hole for a new sign in front of the RCMP building. PUBLIC BUILDING ACCESS CHANGES SEEN A survey to check the accessibility of buildings for the handicapped in Lethbridge has been completed and is now being presented to owners and managers of public buildings. The newly-formed organiza- tion Disabled on the Move has approached a few building managers with its survey and has received favorable response.

SUPER SPECIAL ONLY SC.47 manager of the College Mall has expressed a willingness to consider changes, chairman Frank Merkl said at the group's Tuesday meeting. The survey was drawn up by taking different aspects of similar surveys done in Calgary and Edmonton and through discussions with various disabled people to dis- cover problem areas and needs The group is getting help in presenting the survey from students at the Lethbridge Community College. The students, however, cannot Driving course set A defensive driving course, sponsored by the Alberta Safe- ty Council, will begin at the Lethbridge Community College Thursday The course is part of a national program for adult driving education It involves an eight-hour classroom session, stressing driving techniques and skills. The course will run from 7 30 to 9 30 the evenings of Oct. 11, 18, 25 and Nov. 8. The continuing education depart- ment at the college is handling enrollment for the program. ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC Sehwam aidi zz25ihsi s provide enough time needed to present and compile the sur- vey The disabled action group hopes to remedy the problem by applying to the federal government for a Local Initiatives Project grant, Gerald Trechka, survey organizer said. If the group gets the grant, it plans to finish compiling the survey then print the results in a booklet which would detail buildings and facilities available to disabled people visiting or living in Lethbridge. Similar booklets are available in Calgary, Ed- monton and Vancouver. The LIP program would also investigate and gather in- formation on various aids available to disabled people in By U of L president Contract decision Immediate action to decide what the University of Lethbridge intends to do with its presidency after Jan. 1, 1975 will be taken next Tues- day at a meeting of the U of L board of governors. Dr. Bill Beckel's three-year contract as university presi- dent expires in 1975 and he has indicated he wants a decision on whether his contract will be renewed. The necessity for an early decision on the university's in- tentions for the 1975 presidency resulted from an announcement in late September that Dr. Beckel was considering leaving the U of L for the presidency of a Toronto university. He is one of eight people in the running for the presidency of York University. Dr. Neil Holmes, chairman More than 100 members of the Pacific Northwest Region of the American Society of Agricultural Engineers will discuss changes in their in- dustry at the group's annual meeting in Calgary Thursday and Friday. Medicine Hat MP Bert Hargrave, who is an agricultural engineer, will present the keynote address, discussing the challenge of change Thursday morning, Arnold Platt, chairman of the Alberta Land Use Committee, will deal with the need for orderly planning of land use. spelling Call Hardwire 327-5767 DOWNTOWN Camm's the home of famous LADIES SHOES as shown in Brown Calf. lovely new Joyce style is avail- able m Black wet look. lovely new EMPRESS SLINGS Set the Vogue tor Fall wear in great new colors in Kid tinder glass Black Navy and Brown See loo the lovely now arrivals in Our dressy of our WHITE DUTY SHOES Oomphios by Kaufman A romploie Size rnngo from CAMM'S 403-Sth Street S.

The group has been notified its application for a LIP grant must be submitted by Oct. 15 and will know within eight weeks whether it will be accepted. sought of the U of L board of gover- nors, said Tuesday the board is giving the 1975 U of L presidency consideration a few months earlier than planned because it is only "right that Dr. Beckel should know in advance the position of the He also suggested it was time the board considered the matter "because there are so many vacant university presidency positions available." Universities presidents have been vacating their posts after limited terms in recent years, Dr. Holmes said. He said the board of gover- nors will likely set up a com- mittee of faculty and students Tuesday that will encouarge input from "all parts of the university" on the question. A news release from York University says Dr. Beckel has agreed to travel to Toronto to meet with the un- iversity community. In an interview, Dr. Beckel said he hasn't decided whether he would accept the York University presidency if offered to him, but will give it serious consideration. Pqy-or-jail ultimatum forces hand When Gary Sindlinger, 23, 945 15 St. S., was fined a total of in provincial court Tuesday for driving while suspended and driving an un- insured vehicle, he asked for time to pay the fine. Const. Doug Harris, court liaison officer, said the Crown objected to giving Sindlinger time to pay because of his record of failing to show up in court on previous charges. "I guess you'll have to go to jail said Provincial Judge L. W. Hudson. "I guess I'll pay it now then." said Sindlinger, pulling the money from his pocket. Road closed The intersection of Mayor Magrath Drive and 3rd Avenue South will be closed from 8 a.m., today, until next Monday. The closure is necessary for the upgrading of Mayor Magrath Drive. IRRIGATED PASTURE BENEFITS RANCHERS About one-fifth of the acre Lomond cattle grazing reserve will be brought under irrigation in 1973 and 1974, a move which will increase the animal capacity about 50 times on the improved area. About 200 to 250 ranchers and farmers will benefit from the improved pasture land, said Shing Lee, head of the land management branch of the Alberta Department of Agriculture. Instead of running one animal on 40 to 50 acres of Preschool program approved Public school trustees were told Tuesday their school system's preschool program for children with learning dif- ficulties has been approved in writing by the provincial government. The program began opera- tion at the General Stewart School in September on a ver- bal indication that govern- ment approval would be forthcoming. The learning difficulties of children in the course stem from language, hearing, physical and emotional problems. Fred Cartwright, director of public school services, told trustees the program has functioned as expected during the first month of operation with the exception of parental involvement. Project organizers are en- couraging parental involve- ment because government funding is dependent on parents taking an active role in the project's operation, but "we're finding it difficult to involve parents" in the classroom, Mr. Cartwright said. DOROTHY BECKEL Trustees elect head Dorothy Beckel was elected chairman of the public school board at a regular meeting of the board Tuesday. Mrs. Beckel replaces Dr. Doug McPherson who resign- ed as chairman Tuesday upon completing his one-year term. U is normal procedure for a board chairman of the Lethbridge public school board to resign after a one- year term in office. Mrs. Beckel's election to the chair left vacant the office of vice-chairman which she held for the past year. Trustee Doug Card was elected to fill that office. Noise costly A noisy party cost a Lethbridge man in provin- cial court Tuesday. Bryan Fuller, St. N., was found guilty of unlaw- fully making a noise which disturbed others in contraven- tion of the city by-law. A neighbor had complained in the early morning of Sept. 7 that Fuller and his friends were having a party at which a record player was playing loudly. Fuller, who had pleaded not guilty, was fined and costs of SMILEY'S PLUMBING REMODELLING E. S. P. POX FOXILUb.OE, Wwnt dryland pasture, farmers will be able to graze 40 to 50 animals on each irrigated acre of land. The field survey was carried out by the conserva- tion and development branch of the Alberta irrigation divi- sion and land levelling started in the spring on 173 acres. A good crop of oats has since been harvested from this land. The Lomond Grazing Association supplied fencing materials and built the fences, the Prairie Farm Rehabilita- tion Administration supplied concrete structures and the Bow River Irrigation District supplied equipment and crews to install ditches and struc- tures. Volunteers picked rocks, irrigated the land and hauled supplies to keep the total pro- ject cost under Another 170 acres has been surveyed by the irrigation division and the area is ready for land work, said Mr. Lee. But because contractors are busy with highway construc- tion, land moving equipment has been difficult to obtain, said Mr. Lee. "We may have to pay higher unit prices to attract the con- he said. About to will be spent on the second portion of the grazing reserve. Future management of the irrigated pasture will be the responsibility of Eldon Edwards, supervisor of graz- ing reserves for the Alberta Department of Lands and Forests. Music festival format changes The 1974 Lethbridge Kiwanis Music Festival will take its adjudicators to the students instead of having the students travel to a central location to be adjudicated. The festival's chairman, Steve Wild, told public school trustees Tuesday night that in past years students were bus- ed to a central location during class hours and were required to return to classes following their performance and ad- judication. Organizers of the annual festival hope to take ad- judicators into the schools and combine the competition with a music workshop. They also plan to establish a workshop for music teachers to upgrade their standards, Mr. Wild said. The festival has suffered a gradual decline in the number of students entering its various categories in the past few years, the board was told Another agenda matter, the Lakeview Elementary School project, was approved by the trustees and will now be sub- mitted to the department of education for further approval. The three-year pro- ject would provide the students with a variety of learning experiences that tend to encourage them to become involved in hobbies. Trustees were also in favor of allowing the Winston Churchill High School and the Lethbridge Collegiate In- stitute to become involved in a department of education pilot project. The project offers high school students the op- portunity to study the social sciences for credit. A grant of per class will be made to each high school by. the department of educa- tion to cover the cost of resource materials. Prior to the meeting, the public school board presented William Doram, who retired as head caretaker at the Wilson Junior High School, with a golf bag and a golf club in recognition of his service to the school district for the past 17 years. Mr Doram told board members he enjoyed being around students "even though I felt like choking them sometimes." He will continue to reside in Lethbridge and intends to keep busy golfing and gar- dening. What does it feel like to be retired? "I didn't used to work. Now I work a he replied. Mr Doram's retirement became effective Sept 30. drtlfltduintilMKbinlc CLIFF BLACK. BLACK DENTAL LAB MEDICAL DENTAL BLD6.
