Stolen were S311 in cash, some bottles of liquor and some wedding band rings. En- try was gained by smashing a window. About 150 persons attended the installation ceremony Sat- urday night of 23 young men into the Lethbridge Chapter of the Order of DeMolay. The investiture of chapter mother and chapter sweet heart was also held during the service at the Masonic Hall. The Order of DeMolay takes its name from Jacques De- Molay, last ruler of the Knights Templars, who was martyred in 1314 at the hands of Philip the Fair of France. The purpose of the order which was established in the U.S. in 1919, is to aid young men aged 14-21 and to develop in them a high sense of citizen ship and personal integrity. Installed in the order were- Roger Barnes as master coun- cillor; Bill Gore-Hickman se- nior councillor; Tim Gore-Hick- man, junior councillor; Bob Foster as scribe-trea- surer and David Hovan as as- sistant scribe-treasurer. Senior dsaeon and junior deacon are Tim Baxter and Alex Hann; senior steward and junior steward are Bob Black and Don Rollack.

Unifarm, a new or- ganization of Alberta farmers, and the Union of Rural Elec- trification Associations, with membership made up of farm- ers, is mounting the offensive but so far has made no impres- sion on the Alberta govern- ment. Calgary Power Ltd. the ma- jor supplier of electricity to Al- berta farms, is in the process of negotiating new rate struc- tures and other terms with the REA's. Paul Babey, president of Unifarm in a recent letter has asked the REA's to hold off until further pressure is put on tlie government. Considerable resistance to this strategy is being encoun- tered m some parts of the prov- ince. Mr. Babey, in a recent letter to Unifarm and Union of REA's i officials, said that executives of the two groups met recently with the Alberta cabinet and asked the government to take over the power companies, but j wero told this was not govern- ment policy. The letter staled that the farmers were supposed to get "power at but they BAriNES and Bob Baird, preceptor.

The Order in its bridge weren't, and the government would have to see that they did. But the letter also stated it is the position of the two associa- tions that "power at the lowes', possible cost" can only be achieved by public ownership. Tlie 'two major companies in- volved are Calgary Power, which has a number of hydro plants on mountain and foot- hills rivers and a major coal- fired generating plant west of Edmonton, and Canadian Utili- ties, with steam plants in the north. Alberta is the only prov- ince without almost complete government ownership of the power systems. Public ownership of Alberta power companies was the sub- ject of a plebiscite at the time of the 19-18 Alberta provincial election. It WHS defeated by a narrow margin. A campaign to disband all the local REA's and make one province-wide organization is also under way. The resources and reserves of each of the existing locals would be thrown int one pot with one board responsible for tire prov- ince. Tin's, too is meeting with some resistance. By JIM WILSON Education Writer EDMONTON A pro. yincially financed kinder- garten system is not likely to develop in Alberta unless its proponents offer substantially mere experimental support for it. Alberta Education Minister Robert Clark said that while there were two pilot project kindergartens (in Calgary and Edmonton) funded by his de- partment, he is "far from con- vinced" they are the only solu- tion to the problems they are said to solve. "There are now many school systems operating portions of a kindergarten system on t h e i r own, and many private agen- cies and individuals have kin- dergarten program s." Mr. Clark said. 'But just tacking an extra year onto the Grade 1 to 12 sys- tem isn't, it seems, the answer. Other provinces have done this and we haven't, yet Alberta has the highest rate of retention of its sludents of any province in Canada. "That means the provinces with kindergartens still have more dropouts than we do, and more students who aren't being turned on by the system even if they're in it so the kinder- garten year doesn't seem to be fulfilling its promise. "Really if you're going to come to grips with the prob- lems of the kids who have to be helped first the lads in the lower socio economic areas you've got to involve the mothers and the families. "You can't bring the kid to school for two or three hours and then send hin. home to the same old situation and expect to succeed at all "without doing more work: the mother, and the father, doesn't understand what is going on, she doesn't appre- ciate its value so it doesn't help at all." To a lesser extent the same is true for kindergartens cater- ing to the average student, Mr. Clark said, since in these cases too the parents must take an interest in what their child is since school dropouts come from all econo- mic and social categories of families. However, elementary school education (Grade 1 to 6) is an entirely different proposition. "Our elementary level of edu- cation must become our pri- mary interest and priority in Alberta." Mr. Clark said. It is the first few years of school winch form a student's habits and interests but tra- ditionally elementary schools j have been given the least money and ihe least-qualified average teachers. The department of education has already started to encour- age school districts to change their elementary curricula and general outlook toward their elementary school systems. The Alberta Federation of Superette Said Doing Well By SWIHART Herald Staff Writer STANDOFF The Standoff Superette, owned and operated by tlie Blood Indians .is being well received by all and being used extensively by over one third of the reserve population. Louis Soop, store manager said Thursday. He said business during the opening 10 days of specials was tremendous with sales 20 per cent better than anticipated. "Sales have tended to fluc- tuate since but have hit higher than the anticipated average in Hickman chapter mother and the month and a half since the official he said. "One peculiar trait of this store is the acceptance of the meat display department. Meat sales in most stores average 25 to 27 per cent of gross sales but we have been selling 32 to 35 per cent of gross sales through the meal counter." He said one of the major SAVE TOP 60% ON MUFFLER REPLACEMENTS WE HAVE: A MUFFLER FOR MOST CARS FREE INSTALLATION 10 MINUTE INSTALLATION LIFETIME GUARANTEED MUFFLERS FREE INSPECTION AND ESTIMATES All AT IIMUTE UFFLER INSTALLATIONS Phone 323-8134 509 6th Avenue Soulh problems of the store is trans- portation for the people. "We could draw more heavily from Moses Lake and Glemvood but it is closer for them to go to the white community. "There is talk of getting the bus that brings workers to the Kaiiiai Industries plant site to make the Superette its north- ern terminal. If this is accom- plished, business will jump 20 per cent." A major change in the opera- lion of the store is getting away from the usual counter display approach in the meat depart- ment. There has been a change-over to put in more va- riety in front-quarter cuts but the department still carries a i complete variety of all cuts, he said. "The staff is very good al- though the inexperience of the meat cutters means more work because of the unexpected vol- ume. "There is one Blood Indian enrolled at the Lethbridge Community College in a meat cutting course and be should finish next spring. We are hopeful he will come to work for us at that time." Another area which has proved popular is staples. Mr. Soop said flour, sugar and lard are very popular.

Most kindergarten operators (Lethbridge has about 10) also favor a government takeover of pre-school education, as does the Alberta Teachers' Associa- j lion. Colleges Priority In Budget Plans Colleges in Alberta will re- ceive first priority for the next few years in all considerations of post secondary (after high school) education finance, Al- berta Education Minister Rob- ert Clark told The Herald. "Universities provide educa- tional opportunities for only about 30 per cent of Alberta's students and up until now this opportunity for the few has been at the expense of almost all the funds available for all types of post secondary edu- he said. "It seems to me to be most appropriate to spend the money we have to quench the thirst for post secondary education of as many people as we can. "This means we should be Break-Iii Attempts Saturday Several attempts of break- ing and entering business premises in Lethbridge occur- red Saturday but entry was gamed in only one instance. Graham Collection Agencies, 1410 17th St. S., was broken into but nothing is reported miss- ing. Also in the vicinity of the col- lection firm, entry was at- tempted at Ace TV, 1406 17th St. S., and Bonnydale Beauty Salon, 1414 17th St. S. Entry was also attempted at a shed at the rear of the build- ing at 506 20th St. N. Nothing was taken from the shed. i making a much larger portion of our resources available not just for 30 per cent but for that bigger bulk of people who have been largely ignored: people who are not university bound because they are not interested in what universities have to of- fer, but who at the same time have a right to expect an oppor- tunity for some other kind of post secondary education. "I think the community col- lege admirably fills this Mr. Clark said. Commenting or. how univer- sities are being affected by the latest government financial measures, he said universities would have to emphasize their undergraduate (bachelors' de- gree) programs and cut back on increases in their graduate- level studies. "We still have to give every student tvho wants an under- graduate degree program the opportunity to attend an Alber- ta Mr. Clark which would mean money now spent or. graduate programs would be needed for support of the burgeoning undergraduate student population. He Hrmed "balderdash" the University of Lethbridge accu- sation that government cutbacks in financial grants due to drops in enrolment were unfair be- cause they ignored the need for prior contract commitments by universities. "The universities don't have to hire their staff until the stu- dents are there they can al- ways find mere people when they heed them instead of guess- ing they will need them the Jan- uary Mr. Clark said. "An Alberta university this year sought applications for a new position just a few days ago and they had 95 applicants almost immediately."
