Do I need a bigger Such has been one of the un- answerable queries received by Muriel Jolliffe, principal of the Jolliffe Academy of Dancing, during the past five years of her 10-year teaching experience in Lethbridge. Mrs. Jolliffe has been compil- ing a personal collection of some of the funny remarks made by students, teachers and parents in connection with the studio's ballet classes and the Alberta Dance Festival held an- nually at the Yates Memorial Centre. What gives an added touch of humor to the questions is the inherent earnestness in them. For instance, Mrs. Jolliffe noted these items on registra- tion forms: :If there is a class on Wcd- n e s d a y, (our daughter) can come on Saturday." And "I would like my daugh- V of L Semester Gets Under Way The University of Lefhbridg started its fall semester thi morning with registration for all first year students and re- turning students who had no yet completed senior year reg istration.

'Please can I order two left feet and two rights as mine are ialf-3-size "I need my shoes two sizes larger as my toe has a hum- mer." When Mrs. Jolliffe is unsure of the size to order, students are asked to make an outline of their feet on a piece of paper. One set of mailed footprints was accompanied by a note: "I am sending my feet. Will you please send them back as soon as it is difficult to dance with- out them." Then there have been a cou- ple of long distance phone calls about the dance festival. One woman called to say she had "four girls, aged 17. What should I do. with (Mrs. Jolliffe didn't record her Another out of town caller, presumably unfamiliar with the Civic Sports Centre (where the festival was formerly asked which way the stage faced. Unable to understand tire rea- soning behind the question, Mrs. Jolliffe paused for lengthy thoughts, then said, "the audi- ence." "No, I mean, which way does the stage the caller re- peated. After tortuous calculations of directions the Jolliffe house in relation to the centre, the centre in relation to the stage in relation to the rising sun- Mrs. Jolliffe said east.

Lethbridge Foundation Continues To Develop By MARGARET LUCKHURST Herald Staff Writer The Lethbridge Foundation, which was set up a number of years ago to simplify the busi- ness of bequeathing money or property to the community, mil probably develop slowly over a long period of time. This was the opinion ex- pressed recently by K. F. P. Bowman, secretary-treasurer of the foundation. "The people in the estate planning business are the only ones able to give the foundation impetus because they can point out to their clients the opportun- ity available through the foun- dation to make community bs- quests." In 1964, a group of interested businessmen in Lethbridge de- cided there was a need for organizations to receive be- quests through non-partisan channels, and with this in mind the foundation was incorpor- aetd under the societies act. However this was restrictive and it was decided in 1966 to incorporate as a separate act and get away from the societies act. This was accomplished and in April of that year "an act to ncorporate the Lethbridge Foundation and to empower such Foundaticn to receive and administer donations in trust 'or charitable purposes" was >assed by legislature. "To begin with we weren't lust too sure how to proceed, jut we patterned ourselves after the Winnipeg Foundation which has been in effect for 50 years and has assets totalling nearly 10 million." "We completed a brochure which we sent to banks, law- yers, and trust companies, for hese people are in a position o aid clients in making out their Mr. Bowman ex- plained. "They point out that the oundation will administer funds eft by them for the benefit of he city. Donations will be de- wsited with registered trust ompanies and their earnings allocated to organizations deal- jig in community service." The donor may designate a referred charity, stipulate the ield of service in which the und is to be used, or leave its ise entirely unrestricted. To date the foundation has eceived about and has isbursed about "We have to be careful in distribut- ng unspecified Mr. Bowman said, "and we are considering worthy srojects to-aid. One donor spe- cified that of his bequest used in the education of a andicapped child, resident in Lethbridge. We are now in the rocess of following his wishes." The foundation also. received generous bequest from the state of the late Geo. Ellice. We are to receive one-fifth of his estate which will be in the mount of around Mr. amount, but at the end of 10 years we will receive the prin- cipal." Tte current board of direc- tors is headed by Ralph Thrall, Sr., who was instrumental in its organization. The board mem- bers, who serve without remun- eration, are appointed by a nominating'board composed of the Mayor of Lethbridge, the Chief Judge of the District Court, the president of the Chamber of Commerce and the president of the Trades and Labor Council. Serving at present on the board along with Mr. Thrall are: Reed Ellison, Charles Beny, Svcn Erickssn, J. Ken- neth Ringland, Ralph C. Ten- nant, Dr. W. R. Halg, F. J. Morgan, A. C. Anderson and U. F. P. Bowman. "The Foundation is anxious that people keep us in mind when making Mr. Bow- man said. "We are at present updating our brochure, and .in- terested people can receive in- formation and a brochure by writing Box 1001, Lethbridge. We will be happy to assist in any way we can."
