Lethbridge Community Col- lege students had a Ham Hus- tle during the Friday noon hour, the first of special events to be held every Friday noon- A Ham Hustle, LCC style, consisted of eight groups of four people, two of each sex. The centre two people were tied to- gether at the ankle, and then each was again tied to another person by the wrist. Tied in this fashion the four- some had to race through, over, and under obstacles around the campus. Some of the difficult sections of the race were a wall the four had to scale, slipping through a Volkswagen Beetle, and crawl- ing under occupied tables in ttie cafeteria. The winning group was Gay- Jen Armstrong, conservation; Bob Hamilton, English; Mary Kubik, physical education; and Sherry Thompson, secretarial science. Each of the winners received a canned ham. This is a Ham Hustle. HAM HUSTLE? A ham hustle is a race. This four-member team is engaged in a ham hustle. The ham is not involved. He (canned variety) is the prize.

Bruce Johnson, fieldman for Sun Alia, said the company has paid nine growers in an area from Bow Island to Brox- burn to plow down some of their contracted acreages be- cause there is no market for fresh or granulated potatoes above the amount of potatoes already harvested by the com- pany. He said the fresh and granu- lated potato market had slipped during the year, with the com- pany not having a place to sell the potatoes. Sun Alta reduced the con- tracted acreage at the begin- ning of the year by 30 per cent cATERINc Are you planhing a ban- quet, wedding reception or social gathering soon?

"There is only a certain num- ber of tons of potatoes that can be sold regardless of the price on the retail market." He said everybody feels this practice is a waste when there are people starving but there are enough potatoes to supply the market.

"Because they will not have to harvest or store the potatoes, they will receive about the same net profit even with the lower price paid by the com- said Mr. Johnson- He said Sun-AIta is doing a similar thing in Manitoba and reports released from U.S. po- tato companies indicate the practice is being followed in Washington, Idaho and Min- nesota. He doesn't know the acreages involved in the two countries but said with both the fresh market and granulated market under pressure because of an oversupply, this is what is hap- pening. He said if the 550 acres had been harvested, Sun-AIta would have been finished with the har- vest this week. As it is, the company finished the harvest process last Saturday. Using 1970 figures, with an average yield per acre of nine tons and an average price of ?35 per ton, the value of the plowed down potatoes amounts to on the market. Bird licences cancelled Two B.C. upland game bird hunters discovered that some indication of the kind and sex of a game bird must be left on the carcass if the birds are to be transported out of Alberta. The two hunters were fined and had their bird licences cancelled when they pleaded guilty to removing all traces of species and sex from nine of 17 game birds by cleaning them before returning to B.C- Judge L. W. Hudson ordered the game birds be confiscated and the hunters' guns be held until the hunting licences were presented for cancellation.

TICHLER 328-8677 Many suggestions made on divided school year By RON CALDWELL Staff Writer RED provincial government called the Red Deer conference on the modifi- ed school year to get ideas on hew the present school year can be changed. It got from educators and business- men, from students and pa- rents." All these groups had strong representations at the confer- ence because a change in the traditional school year could have far reaching effects in many areas of society. The main concern expressed by teachers was the timing if the school year and holiday periods. 'We would endorse the idea of looking into said Walter Hughes of the Alberta Teachers' Association. "We would appreciate a care- ful approach by the department of education." Mr. Hughes said the associa- tion would like to have more reasons why the school year should be changed and recommended more experi- mentation before a province- wide plan is adopted. "Change for the sake of change said. is not he Ray Clark, of the Southern Alberta School Authorities As- sociation, speaking for school trustees, said there may be some savings of capital if the schools were used for 12 months a year in the quarter system. "There would be no saving in the semester system but we feel it would be far better if definite entry dates were set." Mr Clark said trustees feel the tri semester system would result in highei educational costs. "But it is still too soon to establish a definite position on the modified school said Mr. Clark. "We will refer it to the ASTA (Alberta School Trustees Asso- ciation) for a study and bring back a report." School administrators ex- pressed support for the double- entry proposal which would see students start school at two different times of the year and leave school at too different times. Prank Riddle, speaking 'or the administrators, said tile question of examinations is one that must receive serious con- sideration. "Maybe there should be defi- nite exam periods twice a year or perhaps we should have power to do away with exam- inations said Mr. Riddle. "We feel the present system of Grade 12 final examinations should be discontinued. Robert Chapman, a Chamber of Commerce representative, said "whatever change is made should have as little disruptive effect on family life as pos- sible." Gravel sought The St. Mary River Irriga- tion District will accept ten- ders until Nov. 1 for the load- ing and hauling of to cubic yards of coarse gravel to various parts of the main can- al from Chin to Horsefly reser- voirs. Tenders are to be submitted on a cubic yard basis with a minimum daily delivery of MX) yards, work to start shortly af- ter close of tenders. Mr. Chapman said it is im- portant to have community in- volvement in proposed school year changes because the en- tire community would be af- fected by a change. "There should also be some research among parents to find out how (hey he said. Mr. Gerry Kilgannon, repre- senting students and parents, said parents "really didn't seem to care if tolidays were shifted. "There was more concern with the cost benefit what we're getting for our money." But, she said, a closer look should be taken at the student before a change is made. "There is not a wide enough represent a t i o n of students she said. "We must go into the class- rooms to find out how they feel." Longer trial period needed RED DEER Bill Brown, the- retiring chairman of the Lethbridge public school board, said he was "reasonably satis- fied" with the modified school year conference buf he felt if more material had been avail- able sooner "we would have made a better contribution." Mr. Brown said the confer- ence, which was attended by approximately .300 delegates, was too large to reach any defi- nite conclusions but "if it was designed to help the minister by making available a wide di- versity of views, then I think something was accomplished." Student attacks present values RED DEER A University of Alberta law student took a verbal pot-shot at present edu- cation values during the mbdi- fied school here Friday. year conference 21 students pass nursing tests Twenty one of 22 Gait School of Nursing students who wrote their registered nurses exam- inations passed. Andy Andreachuk, Lethbridge Municipal Hospital administra- tor, said the figure represent- ed the best passing rate for the school in the past 15 years. The student nurse who did not receive her RN only failed one subject which she will re- write soon- He attributed the high suc- cess rate to "the tremendous job" done by the school's staff and "the extra hard work" on studies completed by the stu- dents. The students receiving their RNs are: Rosalind J. Brown, Christine E. Clements, Marilyn L. Coupland, Ellen M. Cowl- ing, Cheryl Hamabata, Sherry B. Hayward, Lynne M. Hovey, Muriel M. Jackson, Marilyn L Jorgenscn, Joyce K. King- Hunter, Dorothy R. W. Lub- bers, Ruth A. Melvin, Edna K Morgan, Arlene M. O'Donnell Janice K. Peat, Judy J- Sal mon, Gloria Stolk, Marion C Watson, Vivian I. Wilson, Betty A. Wintonyk, Linda F. Young and Rosi N. Zanoni. Ken Chapman said students are slaves in the educational system. "Education has more control over children than even the pa- he said. ;'It is nothing more than lip service to say education is for the students." Mr. Chapman said he doubt- ed that a modified school year would make much of a change. He said there will have to be a reassessment of educational values "We are not after the dollar figure any more the god of financial success isn't impor- tant." Mr. Chapman said only a small number of teachers pro- vide a learning experience, most simply teach. Appeal total: United Appeal contributions to date total The 1971 commitment is Mr. Brown said the widely differing views and the lack of consensus could have a positive effect on the continuation of the divided school year in Leth- bridge "so that more informa- tion can be made available to the people who want it. "We have shown that ad- ministrators, teachers, students and parents like the divided school year but we need an- other couple of years to show that it can improve education." Dr. 0. P. Larson, superin- tendant of the public school system, expressed cautious op- timism that Education Minister Lou Hynctaan will hand down a favorable ruling on continua- tion of the experiment. "What has happened at this conference hasn't caused nte to be more pessimistic, at any said Dr. Larson. Mr. Hyndman has stated that the conference dialogue could have a lot to do with whether the experiment will continue. His decision is expected before the end of this month. MOVING?
