Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 28, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE IETHBRIDGE HERMD Thuridoy, OeloBer it, it" Youth may for Alber By RIC SWIHAKT Staff Writer OLDS An order in ooun cil from the provincial govern ment at the end of September putting the agricultural voca tional colleges under the juris diction of the newly formed department of advanced education is expected to have wide-ranging effects on educational thinking, The three agricultural vocational colleges, at Olds, e la's agrici R. G. McFadyen, assistant to Mr. Birdsall, said he could see only good coming from the switch of departments. He said he expects more flexibility in curriculum under the department of advanced education and in fact there are some new courses now in the works, awaiting the okay from the new government. "We had a wide range in curriculum under the department of agriculture but we look for added courses he said. "We will be in the mainstream of education and when people talk of education, they will be talking of us as well as the rest of the province." Mr. McFadyen said he could foresee no special problems in financing the college under the new dtural stu Dr. Birdsall said the Tradi tion and Transition Report, e study of the extension division of the department of agricu ture, recommended the college be developed as an extension centre. "The school already is an extension centre in a small waj and I look for this idea to be he said. Some of the major problems to be overcome by the move as seen by Dr. Birdsall, include better relations with the Canada Manpower Centre. "The college has been somewhat handicapped by being a separate department, but now that it is in the same department, I look for the same assistance for our students as students from other post secondary institutions receive idents Canada he raid. "Wo were also handlcappei because dec i s i o n s formerl were not made on the basis o educational policy because th school was not part of the gen eral education system. "Canada Manpower assis tanco was difficult to get be cause the school was separatt from the department of educa tion." He said there was also a ten dency on the part of the public to downgrade the role W agriculture schools while thej i were separate from the depart ment of education.

Birdsall, principal ol the school at Olds, said he foresees within the year, changes which will make Olds the major agricultural centre below university level, with other colleges having the role of offer-tag a more general education. "Olds will become the major agricultural education centre for the province, teaching specific lie said. "Students will also be able to get a start on an agricultural education at other centres and then transfer to Olds." He said he expects the programs at Olds will be expanded with a greater diversity of c urses offered to meet the demands of the areas served, without unnecessary duplication of courses other institutions are offering. Mr. Birdsall said the switch of control to the department of advanced education will mean much more recognition, both by the public and by other schools, which will lead to more articulation with other post- secondary institutions. He said the recognition and transferability of agricultural courses, as is now in affect wtween the college and the Lethbridge Community College school agriculture, will be enhanced with other post secondary institutions because of the public awareness of the Fiddler tickets gone When tickets for Fiddler on the Roof first went on sale last week the initial heavy demand led to some speculation that the show might be sold out two weeks before it opened. As it turned out, it didn't take that long. Fiddler, Lethbridge Musical Theatre's ninth production, opens in the Yates Memorial Centre Nov. 22. All tickets were sold in only four days. According to Jack Wai-burton, LMT publicity manager (and male lead in "Fiddler) the previous record was 11 days for the production of Showboat. Mr. Wai-burton says he's seen nothing quite like it before. "Absolutely every seat is gone, even the odd singles here and here that are usually open have been snapped up." The only hope now for persons wanting to see the show, le said, is a heavy snowstorm sometime during the show's If that happens, some of he people from rural areas may not make it. freeing a few seats for city dwellers. Vaughan Hembroff, LMT >resident, was "absolutely and delighted" at the icket sales. He suggested persons wanting tickets might check periodically at the Yates box office on the chance some tickets may have been returned. There is no chance, he said, of extra performances to accommodate everyone who wanted tickets. The theatre is booked up and the cast members are simply incapable of stretching their resources any further than the scheduled 13 shows. Most of them have had to make special arrangements as it is, he said. There is a possibility that a three weekend run may be tried next year LMT's loth anniversary but the longer run stretches a cast "right to the outer he due to lai An unimaginative federal government is the cause of Canada's current economic woes, claims the Canadian Labor Congress. Jim Shewchuk, a Calgary-lased CLC representative said Wednesday that past federal government economic policies lave resulted in high unemployment in Canada. Although new United States economic measures have compounded this country's difficul-ies, "Canada is old enough to stand on its own feet" and ?k of its own industrial research and planning. "A shift in Canadian economic planning in Canada is he said. More planning is needed fo provide full employment which "Canada needs." Mr. Shewchuk urged the federal government to provide more funds for housing and construction projects to create jobs. Much of the money now being supplied has not been providing the jobs it is supposed to. Because of the slack in woes vination economy, many men have been laid off their jobs and the situation will continue to deteriorate unless the government revises its economic planning, he said. The Canadian economy is tiec to closely to the U.S., and as a result the bad effects of a sour American economy flows over into Canada. Mr. Shewchuck charged current government policies are totally inadequate to cope with the massive unemployment problem. Although the federal government has, in the past, ignored advice from Canadian labor il must implement appropriate policies to prevent a calamitous unemployment picture this winter, he said. Press reports indicating that meetings have been held between representative groups of organized labor and the minister of labor for the purpose of discussing problems related to inflation are untrue, he said. If a particular part of the Alberta Highway Traffic Act is strictly enforced, the use of motorcycles on slippery streets could be made nearly impossible. A section of the highway traffic act states the rider of a motorcycle must keep both hands and feet on the machine at all time, except when stopped or signalling for a turn. The practice of many cyclists, especially when turning on an ice-covered street, illegal? dragging their feet to maintain stability is therefore illegal. City police said the practise of foot-dragging could constitute stunting a traffic offense. A local doctor warned severe ankle injuries could result if the rider's foot "hung-up" on something. Police said, however if it was obvious a rider was using lis foot to maintain balance and control it was doubtful if he would be participation needed EDMONTON A panel of two Edmonton city planners, a sociologist and a community organizer have called for greater citizen participation in local planning processes across the province. At the Alberta Urban Muni' cipalities Association convention Wednesday, S. C. Rodgers, superintendent of the Edmonton planning department said the existing avenues for citizens to express their attitudes on proposed developments do not give citizens enough time to prepare arguments, and leaves them at a disadvantage to the developers. The public hearings before city council, for example, come too late in the process to be effective, he said. A recent public hearing in Lethbridge on the transportation bylaw seems to give support to that contention. Mr. Rodgers said the advantages of citizen participation include a strengthening of the democratic process, a unified approach to goal achievement and formation and the possible creation of community organizations to estabish a neighborhood voice on proposed developments. He said, however, that the decision-making process with citizen participation might lose efficiency because of the increased number of people involved in the decision. The initiative must be taken by local governments to solicit the attitudes of residents concerning proposed developments in the neighborhoods at the initial planning stages, Mr. Rod-gers horse tilni at LCC tonight The final film in a series on the quarter horse in action is being sponsored as a public service by the school of continuing education at the Lethbridge Community College.

Mr. Nurse, who made his own lute after learning the art in England, complemented Miss Hanney's voice very nicelv and also carried about one-third of the program alone. He sounded best on an anonymous French basse dance, which dipped into tile instrument's lower register, and two dances from the Shakespearean period. The program was divided into five sections, each containing selections from only one country. The result was an interesting opportunity to compare the musical traditions of Italy, England, Spain and France. (England was represented twice, one section being given over to the music of Shakespeare's Both artists seemed quite at home with all the music, no matter where it originated. All the material was written in the 16th and 17th centuries. The university's music department is to be congratulated for making this kind of music available to a Lethbridge audience. It is to be hoped that the relatively small turnout does not deter the university from further efforts in this direction.

Pleasant it certainly was, but it was more than that. Perhaps super-pleasant gets the idea across. If a symphony concert can be likened to wandering through an art gallery, then perhaps it s fair to compare the program of songs and lute music at the Yates Memorial Centre with an evening spent watching the sliifting patterns of light in a diamond. Fascinating, once one adjusts to the smaller scale. So much for the flights of fancy. Ray Nurse is a young lutenist from Vancouver, one of the few musicians in Canada to play the instrument. Corlynn Hanney is a talented young mezzo-soprano, also from Vancouver. Their performance was the second in the University of Lethbridge concert series this season and a welcome opportunity to hear something out of the ordinary. (The opportunity was seized by less than a capacity Miss Hanney displayed a nicely restrained approach in her singing, well-suited to the material. Everything was done very quietly and subtly, with just tho right touch of brightness in the more spirited selections.
