Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 18, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta U-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD-Thuredey, October 1973 'Education needs change for adults9 Bids asked on annex demolition Adult education must become more flexible, meaningful and accountable to the needs of the student, the Lethbridge Community College's dean of instruction says. Keith Robin, in a prepared speech to be made today to ad- ministration personnel attending a workshop for Western Canadian technical institutes and colleges in Saskatoon, says the changes in adult education are necessary because people's attitudes toward education have changed. People don't complete their education in a set period of time any more, nor do they find it convenient or necessary to attend classes during a set period of months or think the degree is the' 'key which opens all the doors to he says He also says people now realize upgrading or retrain- ing is necessary for promotion or even for maintaining an es- tablished position in the office or industry. MFC approves 10 fourplexes Four construction projects and the erection of billboards advertising the Canada Winter Games, received Municipal Planning Commis- sion approval Wednesday.

The Lethbridge Community College is now working on a program proposal designed to fit the future needs of adult students. Some programming ideas included in the proposal are: students on each Monday throughout the year. programs in each of the basic skill subject areas to allow a student to study what he wants at a time most convenient to him. learning labs to be available to students 12 months a year. Dr. Robin says the type of programming needed to meet the needs of adult students in the future will create problems for the post- secondary institutes. Will the tuition fees be increased with the amount of time a student spends in the classroom, he asks? Under the concept of flexible programs, a student would complete the program at his or her own pace. Some students could spend several months completing a course by attending classes only one day a week while others could complete it in a much shorter time by attending five days a week One of the problems with in- dividualized instruction and programming is the excep- tional amount of time an instructor would need to prepare the program, he says. The implementation of the new concept of programming could be an expensive under- taking for the community college which is expected to provide post-secondary educa- tion with an inexpensive price tag, Dr. Robin suggests. Cornerstone will be kept V of L insignia University of Lethbridge coat of arms were ap- proved by the Board of Governors and university senate recently. The gold sun on the blue shield rep- resents Southern Alb erta and the blue and silver book above the gold and blue wreath the search for knowledge. The university's motto below, "Fiat Lux" is the Latin for "Let there be light." Use of the coat of arms is controlled by the board of governors, and the arms will be used on official stationery, dip- lomas, and so on. By WARREN CARAGATA Herald Staff Writer When the city hall annex, once the first separate school in Lethbridge, is demolished to make way for a new county building, the cornerstone will be spared. At a County of Lethbridge council meeting Wednesday, Coun. John Murray said the contents of the cornerstone may be of historic interest. Before Lethbridge county council voted to preserve the stone, there was some discus- sion about turning it over to the separate school board but no final decision was made. The council decided to let contracts for demolition of the building but if bids are too high, a county work crew will tear the building down. The council will also ask the Oldman River Regional Planning Commission and the Lethbridge Northern Irriga- tion District for rental com- mitments in the new building. In informal discussions, the planning commission in- dicated it would like about 000 square feet while LNID wants about square feet of office space. Council decided firm com- mitments should be given before an architect is retained to submit preliminary plans. Council also set meeting dates to discuss the Fairview subdivision sewage-disposal problem, and the problem of haphazard chlorination of the Bypass will be opened The city is repaving Scenic Drive and expects to have it completely open again within two weeks, if the weather holds up. Only one side of the divided roadway between 6th Avenue and 3rd Avenue has been open recently after the road was torn up for installation of a new sanitary sewer line. The new line is part of the rerouting of utilities around the downtown redevelopment area But city drivers, having had a taste of closure of the bypass road, will have a chance to really get used to it next summer. The city engineering depart- No water in coulee ponds Pheasant population down Judging from hunter success on opening weekend the pheasant population is down from previous years, says a local fish and wildlife officer. Morley Barrett says there is no one reason but the dry summer could be a factor. "There is no water in coulee ponds and tributaries; there has been water there for the last 20 he says. "Maybe this is forcing the pheasants out on the bald prairie where they are easily picked off by predators." Clean farming might also be a factor. "Clearing ditches, remov- ing willow patches, cleaning up sloughs and spraying, which are all good farming practises, go against he says. "The only cover left for the birds is in wind-rows and hedges around farm houses." Mr. Barrett says there are some unknown factors that may affect pheasants. He was referring to fertilizers which the pheasants sometimes mis- take for grit and eat Fer- tilizer may also effect the insect population which the pheasant feeds upon Allan Warrack. lands and forest minister, said the phea- sant reports from southern Alberta are rather dis- couraging. Speaking to the legislature' Wednesday, he said the government is considering an early closing of the pheasant season in Southern Alberta along with other measures that might help prevent another shortage of the birds next year "but the situation is not a good one." The main reason for the shortage, he said, was warm weather in June that spoiled the first hatch of the birds Most of the young pheasants in Southern Alberta are from the second batch but they are smaller than those in from the first. ment says Scenic Drive will be closed in the same area almost all summer to allow construction of the interchange with the 6th Avenue S. bridge. The entire bridge program is to be completed by December next year and when it is, 6th Avenue will begin a slope at about 5th Street and go under Scenic Drive down to the bridge. A half-cloverleaf interchange will connect Scenic Drive and 6th Avenue. The bridge construction schedule calls for a comple- tion of the grading to the bridge abutment on the east side Monday and on the west side Nov. 15. The contract for the bridge structure has already been tendered and tenders will be opened Nov. 2. with approval of the contract expected at the council meeting following that date. Work on the Scenic Drive interchange will begin in the spring. New gov't dairy policy may stabilize prices COMPUTER ACCOUNTING AND MANAGEMENT LTD. Data Processing Services 201 CANADA TRUST BUILDING TELEPHONE 328-7883 Herald Legislature Bureau EDMONTON Higher milk prices in rural Alberta may be a thing of the past after the province develops a new dairy policy this winter. Doug Miller (SC Taber- Warner) wanted to know in the legislature Wednesday why a bottle of milk cost two cents more in some towns. Bob Dowling, minister of consumer affairs, said that outside eight controlled areas in the province, of which Lethbridge and Medicine Hat are two, "the processors or suppliers of milk are required to charge two cents more to protect the small producer." Hugh Horner, minister of agriculture, told Mr. Miller the province will be consider- ing extending the controls to the entire province. He also said that the producers in Alberta are getting above average returns compared to producers in Canada generally while the consumers are getting the cheapest milk in Canada. E. S. P.

Grass-roots involvement needed for ATA members Some members of the local Alberta Teachers Association executive are concerned the local ATA is not reaching its "grass roots" members. They suggested at their regular meeting Wednesday that the ATA should attempt to appoint regular rank and file to its committees and as representatives to educational conferences. Some members are also concerned about the agenda information they receive in advance of local ATA ex- ecutive meetings. Gerry Heck, local ATA president, told the meeting he would attempt to send the agenda to them two days in advance of the meeting, but would not be able to send them additional information about each item to be discuss- ed because of a staff shortage. Officials suspect arson in television-shop fire A fire which caused about damage to the exterior of Smith's Color TV, 236 13th St. N.

The fire was reported about p.m., about 10 minutes after the owner left the premises. Mr. Kometz reports that some children had been seen playing around the back of the building before the fire was noticed. There had been some fires in the neighborhood this summer which Mr. Kometz suspects were the result of- juvenile arson, but no one was ever caught. And he doubts that an investigation of Wednesday's fire will turn up any suspects. CtrlinidDMtilMidiinlc CLIFF BLACK. BLACK DENTAL LAB MEDICAL DENTAL BLDG. PHONE 327-2KZ AIR VAC 1811 2nd Ave. S.
