Registration figures released by Ihe registrar's office slrow 1.300 full time students, with 350 part-time students expected to sign up within the week. Registrar Jack Oviatt said the enrolment was disappoint- ing, and he pointed to bad pub- lic relations regarding the split campus and the distance lo Ihe campus from the city as the main reasons for the drop in attendance.

Mr. Ovialt said there were 360 freshmen registered for the fall semester and he looks for an increase in enrolment for the spring semester, once stu- dents' fears about the split Among the part-time student campus are proved wrong. He said there is expected to be a significant increase in en- rolment next year when all the courses offered will bo at the West Campus.

PHONE 328-4726 USE YOUR CHARGEX CARD that all Alberta Grade 12 stu- dents write provincial examina- tions, at times set by the gov- ernment. Because of the special dates under which the divided school year is operated, the exams are badly out of step with local re- quirements. Christmas provincial finals were to be written Dec. 13 to 17, even though Ihe local sem- ester doe: not end until Dec. 23 and in past years local exams were held Dec. 19 lo 23. Mr. K i m m L11 said Dr. Hawkesworth indicated a com- promise might be possible, with a rescheduling of exams to Dec. 15 to 21. The government's c h o i ce of dates was made lo accommo- date all students wishing to write final exams after their fall semester, for university en- trance in January. Mr. Kimmitt said in addition to the three Lethbridge high schools, there are three in Ed- monton and several private schools operating modi lied school years. There had been no problem here previously because the government had allowed Leth- bridge high schools lo set and mark their own Grade 12 final exams at whatever time they wished. Jn June there is also a con- flict of dates, since city schools are dismissed June 9 and the provincial exams don't start until the following creating difficulties. Dr. Hawkesworth said the Ed- monton schools have planned to organize their schedule this way, so it will not matler to them that the exam dates are a week after school lets out. What it will cost to get leach- ers to slay the extra week has not yet been discussed. "We tried to get it across to Dr. Hawkesworth at our meet- ing that we have a special thing going here, and we're ex- cited about it." Sir. Kimmitt said. "When things are done to force us lo change it, we get a bit upset." He added that the meeting ended with Lethbridge agreeing "to go along with what's neces- sary" this year with the hope that something can be done about the Christmas exam sit- uation and that next year a bet- ter system is developed. Many friends and dignitaries at James Gladstone funeral Mayor Anderson seeks third term CGA nominates full civic slate Py HERB JOHNSON Starr Wrilcr In what was termed an "en- thusiastic and unexpectedly good" turnout by Civic Gov- ernment Association president Charles Virtue, 275 people crowded into the Fleetwood- B a w d e n School auditorium Wednesday to pledge support for 22 candidates in the Oct. 13 civic election. The candidates represent a full slate for the positions open on the Municipal and Auxiliary Hospital boards, the public school board and city council, including mayor. Mayor Andy Anderson was the only person nominated as a CGA mayoralty candidate. He was nominated by fellow-phar- macist 0. C. Slubbs. Mayor Anderson had made no previ- ous definite announcement of his intentions. Another last-minule an- nouncement came from Tom- and who served on council he- tween 1961 and 13C4; and Bill Baker, manager o[ Baker's Ap- pliances. year of a BA program at the University of Lelhbridgc.

Another former city em- ployee on the list of CGA can- didates is Bill Kergan, who was nominated by CJOC weatherman Bill Matheson. Mr. Kergan was director of preventive social services at the time of his retirement ear- lier this year. Council incumbents nom- inated were S'teve Kotch, C. W. Chichester and Camm Barnes. Other positions on the eight- man slate are being filled by Hal Hoffman, an instructor at the Lethbridge Community Col- lege; John Jones, now retired Richard Bateman and Tony Yackulic were not successful in bids to become CGA hospital board candidates.

CGA candi- dates whether new nominees, incumbenls or retiring offi- cials, contribute according to a sliding scale. For the hospital and school boards il is S25, for city coun- cil S50 and for the position of mayor, S100. The meeting also voted to re- tain the present CGA executive as a "caretaker" group until the next civic election, at CGA support. In a short speech he empha- sized his seriousness in seek- ing the aldermanic position. His interests, he said, extend- ed beyond those usually associ- ated with young people and he would endeavour to function as more than ]ust a student rep- resentative Mrs. Dorothy Beckel and Leri Wright, executive direc- tor ot the Lethbridge Associa- tion for the Mentally Retarded, will seek election lo the pub- lic school board.

Choosing candidates for the Municipal and Auxiliary hos- pital boards was complicated by the impending merger of the two boards. Two positions will come va- cant on the present Auxiliary board, four on the Municipal. Tlie CGA chose four candidates Don LeBaron, Elaine Thacker. Stan Verlinden and Bill Skelton, the last two being current board members.
