4-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wadntsday. Oclobtr 24. 1973 Trustees 'alienated' by gov't decisions Trustees expressed their disgust Tuesday over the failure of the provincial government to appoint a resi- dent of Lethbridge and dis- trict to the educational televi- sion board of directors The government appointed 14 Albertans this month as directors of the recently form- ed Alberta Educational Com- munications Corporation. The directors are responsi- ble for overseeing the operations of the provincial network for educational production and broadcasting through radio, television and related media Trustee Doug Card, in a public school board meeting Tuesday, said by not naming a director from this area the government is giving the im- pression that Calgary and Ed- monton are the only cities in- volved in the educational media. The schools in this area of the province are supplied with television programming through the Southern Alberta Educational Television Association which is based in Lethbridge. Trustee Al Mont claimed it was just another example of officials in Edmonton "alienating us from decisions they make that affect us." Mr Card said there is a feeling in Edmonton that representation from Calgary will also look after the concerns of this end of the province That assumption is "the greatest mistake that ever he insisted Unless the Lethbridge dis- trict has a representative on the board of directors, it will not have an input into the m- nitial stages of an educational communications network that will be receiving large sums of money from the provincial coffers in the near future, he said He said educational televi- sion studios in Edmonton and Calgary will soon be produc- ing an excessive number of programs and "we should have someone on the council to say whether the material (programs) is applicable to the Lethbridge school systems." The Alberta Educational Communications Corporation is also planning to provide its programs for student viewing at 9-30 in the mornings. Mr. Card says if the cor- poration holds firm to that time slot, the local school boards would have to purchase several television sets so that students can view the program in their classrooms. The other alternative would be to purchase several video tape machines so the program could be recorded. Summer school plan decision delayed Decision on a proposal for a community summer school program at the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute was delayed at a public school board meeting Tuesday Most trustees questioned the validity of such a program and instructed Dr 0. P. Lar- son, superintendent, to study the program more extensively and report back to the board. The program is designed to provide students with learning experiences in courses rang- ing from outdoor education to foreign language study during the summer months. Trustee Bill Brown suggested it may be wiser to simply open up a school dur- ing the summer and provide supervision so that groups of students would have a place to develop learning experiences without enrolling in a specific program. He was referring to students who may simply need a place to practice their musical instruments or other recreational interests. Trustee Reg Turner said he couldn't see any need for a summer school at this time. He suggested the summer school may just be duplicating courses already offered by the Lethbridge Community College and other organizations during the summer months. Trustees Carl Johnson said he thought the program would only be applicable to the nine to 14-year-old age group because older students would be working or try to get a job. Trustee Doug McPherson said he didn't think students would be interested in attending classes during the summer months. Parents may support the program because some parents "are always willing to accept a baby-sitting service for he suggested.

Four hundred letters are be- ing sent out asking for contributions toward the fur- nishing and equipping of the new building, librarian George Dew said Tuesday. City council voted half the necessary to furnish and equip the new central branch, but the library board must provide the remainder. Aid Cam Barnes said coun- cil had agreed to provide 000 for furniture and equipment It was provided in a lump instead of over two years so that only one instead of two bylaws would be necessary, he said. Library board chairman Bill Russell said he was confi- dent the campaign would produce the needed money. Mr. Russell said that some money had been saved for the new building that would otherwise have gone into im- provements to the old library.

Although the complex is not scheduled to open until 1975, many downtown merchants are getting caught up in the development fever "They're putting in new carpets and panelling in their stores, new businesses are opening up and empty locations in the downtown area are now hard to Mr. Bartel says. The shopping complex will become part of downtown and not a separate shopping centre. Mr. Bartel added. This is a reversal of the shopping centre trend of the last couple of years. Woodwards is happy to see there is an active downtown merchant's association and will become an active member of it Mr. Bartel says Mr. Bartel, manager of Capitol Furniture Ltd. was recently elected president of the 105-member organization One of its main functions is to promote shopping in the downtown area It's also the merchant's vehicle for acting collectively on issues affecting the downtown area One year ago. the association was instrumental in stopping open shopping hours, Mr Bartel said.

The university might recommend the tests in a case where a student wouldn't be admitted based on high school marks, he said. Grant Notley, Alberta NDP leader, said in the legislature Tuesday it is "scandalous" that students applying at Canadian universities are ad- vised to take the American ex- amination. Mr. Notley. who was not specifically referring to U of L practices, said that while the tests were optional, "the advice is neverthless given" and most students would com- ply with it. In reply to the NDP leader's statement jim Foster, ad- vanced education minister, promised he would investigate the matter and report back to the legislature but said his department has no jurisdic- tion over university entrance procedures. Mr. Notley said that American tests do not necessarily apply to Canadian conditions. But Mr. Oviatt disagreed, saying the tests are well developed enough to test the "scholastic aptitude" of anyone in North America. "I don't think there is much cultural bias "although there may be some in the social studies section of the test, he said 500 tickets available for Mame About 500 tickets are still available for the Lethbridge Musical Theatre's production of Mame scheduled for Yates Memorial Centre Nov 16 to Dec. 1 box office manager Peg McCann said today. Performances scheduled for p.m. should be complete- ly sold out by the end of the week, she said. Tickets remaining to be sold are for Nov. 20, 21 and 22 and for Nov. and 29 with only tickets left. The production will not be presented Sundays or Mon- days The Yates Memorial Centre has seats for per- sons and the centre is the only ticket outlet. LCC newspaper financing set after hassle The Lethbridge Community College student newspaper will receive up to for its operation this year, it was decided at a meeting Tuesday between representatives of LCC student council and director of liberal education, Doug Alston. The meeting was prompted when students' council in a closed-door session Thursday slashed the newspaper budget from to bringing fears that the newspaper would be unable to meet its expenses this year. Journalism instructor Georgia Fooks said Tuesday it New exotic beef breed association in South The Canadian Tarentaise Association will join the grow- ing list of beef breed groups Nov 3 when the articles of in- corporation will be signed. Headed by Southern Alberta ranchers and businessmen who brought the first bull from the French Alps, the association will be centred in Fort Macleod. Gerry Beste, a Fort Macleod veterinarian and partner with 18 other Claresholrr., Fort Macleod and Granum men in Roundup Ranch Co-op Ltd., said the first auction sale of Taren- taise cattle brought a high bid of for a half blood heifer cair Buyers representing Wyoming. Montana. Okla- homa and the western provinces attended. Dr. Beste said the Taren- taise breed is typically a milk cow with milk production records equalling the Jersey. He said the idea of incor- porating Tarantaise in a herd is to develop cross bred cows which will give birth to big calves and lots of milk to feed them. has been agreed that students' council would support the newspaper, The Endeavor, with and would return to the newspaper advertising revenue which would make up the difference of the If advertising revenue does not make up the difference then the LCC students' council "would stand behind the The Endeavor Monday at- tacked students' council for holding closed meetings to decide budget allocations to clubs at the college, suggesting that students' council was imposing a double standard. The editorial said LCC students' council held a budget meeting of the intramural and recreation committee which was open to the public while club budget decisions are held behind clos- ed doors. Mrs. Fooks said the students' council was in the position of newspaper publisher since The Endeavor receives all of its funds from student council, but the coun- cil indicated Tuesday it has "no desire to censor the new- spaper in any way "This is all we care about that the newspaper will receive backing and that we have an independent voice as opposed to them telling us what goes in the news- said Mrs. Fooks She said the student new- spaper would hope to meet with council to discuss the size of The Endeavor. It now consists of four pages, is published weekly and costs about an issue to produce. She said she would like to know council's position should the newspaper decide to ex- pand the size of its publication.
