It's a downtown community' of permanent residents where a study showed 77 per cent o! the families and Individ- uals live under the poverty line as determined by the Economic Council of Canada.

"We respond to public needs quite says A. V. Mach- inski, assistant director of the continuing education division. A flip through the school's ca- talogue shows how diverse are the needs. Courses range from a football appreciation clinic where you can find out everything you al- ways wanted to know about the quarterback rollout to do-it- yourself lessons in fixing a 10- speed bicycle. A small business management course will help the prospective businessman overcome the pit- falls that caused busi- nesses to fail in Alberta last year. Women who don't know the difference between distribu- tor caps and spark plugs will be able to enrol in a car operators' general knowledge course lim- ited to women. Many of the continuing educa- tion courses are suggested by industry, government and com- munity leaders. And if a person wants a specialized course not listed in the catalogue, school officials will try to design tha course and find a teacher.
