Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 27, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta THE UTHBRIDGI HERALD Wedneiday, October 17, 1971 Schools superintendent's job one of executive decisions The role of a school superin- tendent is much like that of a top executive in an industrial corporation. He guides the everyday op- eration of the schools much liko a general manager han- dles the operation of a busi- ness. He has responsibilities to his employees the teachers nnd a" commitment to the pub- lic to provide the best service or product possible. He is also directly respon- sible to his board of directors, or in this case, the school board. It is the school board which sets the policy thc supcrinten- dent carries out. The superintendent is the middle-man in the operation of schools. Dr. 0. P. Larson, superinten- dent of the Lethbridge public school district, feels one of Ms main functions ii to keep the school board up to date on what is happening in the school sys- tem so the board can make its decisions.

They are the ones that are ultimately responsible for what goes on in the school system." Bob Kimmitt, superintendent of the Lethbridge separate school district, believes one of his main responsibilities is the hiring of teachers. "After all, these are the peo- ple who do the educating." "I have also got to create a climate where good teachers can do a good job of he said. The superintendent also acts as a link between teachers and the school board. "I must also create a is a free-flowing atmosphere between the two he said. Dr. Larson and Mr. Kimmitt agreed that the superinten- dent's job means a seven-day work week. "Sixty hours is a short week for said Dr. Larson. "It's like being the manager of any industry, you work when there is work to be are no set hours in this said Mr. Kimmitt. It's like being the manager of an industry, only in this busi- ness, you can not call back your mistakes. Churchhill music students offer good performance BOB KIMMITT Federal grants announced A Lethbridge firm has been awarded a federal in- centive grant to assist in a expansion program.

Meanwhile, Lethbridge is one of eight Alberta municipalities which will receive a share of in loans from Central Mortgage and Housing Corpor- ation.

Other municipalities involved are: Westlock. Calmar, High Prairie, Gibbons, Ogden, Bon Accord and Morinville. By HERB JOHNSON Staff Writer Willie Matliis brought Ms big band to the Yates Memorial Centre Tueday night for its third annual concert. While the nattily-attired Mr. Mathis WKS tire centre of at- traction, ths band performed creditably and guest artist Dale Keteheson added a nice touch of contrast on guitar. A further dimension to the wide-ranging program was con- tributed by the Winston Chur- chill Girls' Chorus, also con- ducted by Mr. Mathis. Whenever a group of ama- teur performers gets up on stage, one waits tentatively through the first few minutes to sec just how comfortable the group is with what it is doing. Is it going to be a struggle just to get through the evening's work or is everyone relaxed and confident? The Winston Churchill music students gave every indication of knowing what they were I doing and the program went I smoothly. The players' intona- i lion, sometimes a problem in student bands, seemed under control. Mr. Mathis used material that was within the capabilities of the musicians, wisely avoid- ing selections too close to their upper limits. The one selection that didn't really seem to hang together was the Billy Holiday-Arthur Herzog standard, God Bless the Child. Given various inter- pretations over the years, the song deserves a better fate than this particular arrange- ment, which loses all the deli- cate beauty of the original. The band sounded best doing more traditional material, par- ticularly the Hebrides Suite and second half of the concert with three selections on acoustic guitar. He played well, especially on his own arrangement of Gra- nada, which contained some touches of flamenco. He show- ed is competence in an en- tirely different idom in Koul Explosion an Arthur Fiedler type of pop-rock amalgam that consisted mostly of the saxo- phones and trombones playing simple riffs under the guitar solo. Special mention should be evening from the band cor- netist Ken Duce, who displayed a nice, big, fat tone and secure technique. The chorus sang pleasantly, if not spectacularly. Thier ma- terial was not too demanding and they handled it well. Good clean singing that provided con- trast and variety in the pro- gram. All in all, it was a varied evening's music, from solo gui- tar to concert band marches. Most of it was well done and a credit to Mr. Mathis1 effort! at given to the only soloist of the I Winston Churchill. Coaldale youths form group to perform Romeo and Juliet Swedish Folk Suite, both of which gave the players chance to display some solo talent and a feeling for dynam- ics. Guitarist Dale Ketcheson, in addition to soloing with the band on Soul Explosion, backed the band and chorus on God Bless the Child and opened the By HERB JOHNSON Staff Writer What do you do when you lave a strong desire to stage a production of Romeo and Ju- liet? You form your own theatre company and stage Romeo and Juliet. At least that is what Sergio Tonm and some friends are doing. Sergio, Haras Koenig and Den- nis Enns are all 22 years old and all are originally from Coaldale. Their initials form the name for their Theatre. If things work out for them, they'll have Romeo and their first production before an audience sometime in Jan- uary'. Why Romeo and Juliet? Largely because that's the play they want to do. Sergio admits it is not the easiest play they might have chosen, but it is what they wanted and they're determined to see it through. Once they have that under their belts, says Sergio, they might try something perhaps some theatre for chil dren. Sergio is convinced the group has excellent potential and can make a go of it. He has been acting himself since he was six years old, took drama from Frank Featherstone while in ligh school in Coaldale and spent the summer of 1967 at the Banff School of Fine Arts. There are about 25 young >eople ranging from 22 down to -5 years of age in KET's Ro- meo and Juliet production earn. Some are from the Al- ied Arts Council's Youth The- atre project directed by Joan Wateriield. Mrs. Waterfield has given the young people some help in get- ing started, and a few other members of the "theatre es- tablishment" Sergio Iras talked to have been enthusiastic about KET, but on the whole the group is making its own way. They're rehearsing twice a week (despite problems getting scripts) and the motivation le- vel is high. Sergio plans tours outside Lethbridge, once the lo- cal production has been accom- plished. If they're lucky, they may break even on the sn important considerat i o n since the three of them (all students) are financing the pro- ject themselves. BUSY PEOPLE According to a City of Leth- bridge bylaw, private citizens are officially responsible for removing ice and snow from sidewalks in front of their resi- dences or businesses.
