He said another 20 per cent of calls has been completed, with money collected still in the hands of canvassers. The other 40 per cent are calls which have not been made or which must be made again. Payroll deductions, a major source of funds will probably not be completed until the end of October, and the business canvass will probably not be finished until the end of November, he said Mr Purvis did not disclose total receipts to date but said results compare favorably with those of one year ago after the same number of can- vassing days. United Way hopes to collect about about more than it raised last year.

A proposal for a community summer school program at the Lethbridge Collegiate In- stitute is to be presented to the public school board Tues- day for consideration the program would provide Lethbridge area residents with learning experiences in courses ranging from outdoor education to foreign language study. Operating the program dur- ing the summer months would provide LCI with the oppor- tunity to utilize its facilities on a year-round basis and offer summer-type courses Cards have sketches of trek Money to help fund an historical research project at Hamilton Junior School will be raised by the sale of Christ- mas cards depicting the westward trek of the North West Mounted Police. Instructor Bruce Haig says the cards will depict a scene at Roch Percee, in southern Saskatchewan, as sketched in 1874 by Henri Julien, an artist who accompanied the Moun- ties. and in 1973 by local sculp- tor Come Martens, who ac- companied Hamilton students last spring on their trip retracing the route of the famous march. Inside the card is a passage from Julien's diary, and another describing why part of the formation was dynamited several years ago. Money raised by the sale of cards will be used to help pay for production of a film com- paring the two treks, says Mr Haig. He adds that early police posts and other in- teresting sites will also be in- cluded. The film will tour Alberta next summer, he says. Mr Haig says the project grew out of one designed to teach children to use cameras in learning instead of giving their teachers written reports. It becamse con- centrated on history because of the interests of the teachers and students involved, he says. Trustees, rural teachers start bargaining today DR. R. S. FABBI OPTOMETRIST 314 8th Street South APPOINTMENTS PHONE 327-3331 TAKE CARE ON TRICK OR TREAT When witches nde broomsticks and your youngsters parade as goblins and ghosts we would like to offer some advice. Please tell them not to eat any of the treats they collect until they get home and you have had a chance to inspect them. Unfortunately, every year we hear about people giving drugs or poisons to children for candy. If you do not recognize something your child has brought home destroy it at once if you are in the least bit suspicious. If candy is in liquid form be sure it is sealed in such a way that nothing could have been added. GEORGE AND MOD SAY...

The sponsorship of the summer school is proposed to include the Lethbridge school district, the city's community services department and the federal government through an Opportunities For Youth grant A similar summer school proposal was given considera- tion by the school board two or three years ago. but it didn't materialize because the stu- dent need or interest for the program did not appear strong enough to make it self- supporting. Dr. O. P. Larson, superintendent of the public school system, says in the school board agenda Dr. Larson says it would be inadvisable to introduce the program immediately. Further study of the need for such a program in the city should be completed and the proposal submitted to the board again for consideration. Ken Sauer. principal of LCI, in a letter to the board says the program could be im- plemented in the summer of 1974 or at the latest in the summer of 1975 if the board approved it this fall. The program, as proposed. would provide the summer student the opportunity to study upper elementary, junior high and senior high school academic courses. a fine arts program including a course for training band members, a drama course stressing stagecraft, acting and production and an art program that would include painting and sculp- turing. a physical recreation program for students nine to 14 years of age. conversational French and German courses. nature studies in biology, environmental science and geography. This program would include field trips. The program is proposed to operate four to five weeks beginning the last week in June or the first week in July. Each course would be a maximum of three hours per day either in the morning or afternoon. The proposal suggests a fee ranging from to be charged per course. Trustees will also be asked to nominate one or more per- sons from the public school system to represent it on the program council of the Alberta Educational, Com- munications Corporation. The corporation was formed this year by the department of education to co-ordinate the educational media throughout the province. Representatives on the program council will be in- volved in the planning stages of educational program production. The board will also be in- formed of a govern- ment grant made to the Hamilton Junior High School to assist the school in prepar- ing a travelling audio-visual exhibit based on the history of the North West Mounted Police The school project is an ex- tension of the Hamilton Trek project in which students last spring went on a camping ex- pedition that re-traced the original trek West of the NWMP.
