Drlvi S. Phcm. Pioneer and Leading Retail Shop In Lethbridfje'-' FINEST QUALITY PASTRY AND BAKERY PRODUCTS Separate schools candidates heard More than 100 voters turned out at St. Patrick's School Tuesday night to meet candi- dates for separate sdwor board in the Oct. 13 civic election. Each of the seven candidates for (lie five seat? introduced hirr-self and presented his plat- form. Following is a summary of what the candidates had to say. JOHN DORAS "Establishment holds people down." After having to fight for his education Mr. Boras be- lieves that education is of ut- most importance. People have to fight for what they want and the best question for anyone who finds a problem is Mr. Boras is a lawyer and he wants the separate school to stay in existence, offering the Catholic youth a chance for a good education. RON FABBI: "Give credit in high1 school for religion courses." Mr. Fabbi believes that the students should be given an insight into other reli- gions so they can compare. He would also like to be out of the zoning system. Pres- ently (lie separate schools in Lethhridge are in a zone with Medicine Hat. This has made it difficult to negotiate with teachers to avoid threatening strikes. PAUL MATISZ "We in Alberta have a wonder- ful system for Catholic sep- arale school education. Mr. Matisz, a separate school board trustee for 16 years, said Alberta is one of the few prov- inces which has the govern- ment support for separate schools. He feels if he is re-elected that the system should be maintained and improved in the future. JOCK MULGREW: "Sep- arate schools are the corner stone of our youths' religion." Mr. Mulgreiv feels that homes often lack religious teaching for the youth, and the separate school must be maintained to fulfill this need. FRANK PETA: "The purpose of education should be to de- velop the whole person." Mr. Peta breaks education into three categories: Spiritual a most impor- tant emphasis should be placed on religion. Academic must provide the best possible background to continue in post secondary schooling. Economic must prepare the students to be a part of so- ciety. He suggests vocations in the separate school system. ERIC SCHILL "To preserve and increase the Christian Catholic atmosphere in the separate schools." Mr. Schill has three pre- school-age children. He would like to see them get the best Catholic separate school educa- tion. He believes that every stu- dent in the separate school sys- tem should be given the best education possible so he can compete fairly in society. E. S. V A S E L S N A K: "We need a junior high school in this city." The ages of 12, 13 and 14 are when young people need some stability. He objects to the way junior high students are juggled around from one school to another, wherever there happens to be room. Mr. Vaselenak, 46 years the principal of St. Basil's, stated that in his opinion the past few separate school boards did not live up to the Alberta Catholic School Trustees Association guidelines. If he is elected he will aim for: better teachers, better at- mosphere, and belter public re- lations, including an open door policy for school board meet- ings. Water off Oct. 20 The Lethbridge Northern Ir- rigation District will be shutting the water off to all irrigation canals Oct. 20. Les Toth, general manager of LNID, said although there has been limited fall irrigation, it has been a long, dry summer with moisture reserves very low. He urged farmers to take ad- vantage of the present good weather to complete fall irri- gation programs during the next weeks. Farmers are also requested CLIFF BLACK, Certified Denial Mechanic BLACK DENTAL LAB Lower Level MEDICAL DENTAL BLDG. PHONE 327-2822____ to make sure their stock ponds and reservoirs are filled by Oct. 20. Towns and villages drawing water from LNID ca- nals are also asked to make sure reservoirs are filled. Mr. Toth said this has been a year of heavy demand for water wilh district waterworks taxed tp the limit. He said with the slow melting of snow in the mountains the supply of water was good dur- ing the irrigation season with the result more acres of land have been irrigated this year. "With the majority of the farmers in the district using sprinklers, there was a more efficient utilization of he said. Immediately after water shutoff, the district will pro- ceed with bridge repair and renovation of structures.

Bow-and-arroiv hunting preferred by city archer By LARRY BENNETT Staff Writer "I'm selling all of my guns. The only way I'll hunt any- more is with a bow it's far more sporting." So said Peter Lehman of 121 7th Ave. S. Mr. Lehman recently return- ed from a bow hunting trip in the Canmore area. He brought with him a 300 pound black bear which he had "bagged" with one arrow from a 64- pound pull bow. He is a member of the Leth- bridge Archery Club and this is his first bow hunting season. He said he had been out hunting for four weekends and the bear he killed was the first one he had had a shot at. He said it is far too unfair to an animal lo hunt it with a gun. With a bow the hunter must get much closer and gen- eral only has one chance for a shot. Mr. Lehman says he also has deer, elk and moose arch- ery tags which he hopes to fill this season. He said he is going to have Arrivals at Camm's in Fall Footwear Fashions A NEW LISA DEB (Exaclly as shown) Hi-Slyle Fashion Pump available in Black and Marbelized Brown Antique.

He said he found an arrow- head left from another hunter in the lower rear right leg of the bear as he was dressing it out, perhaps attesting to an in- creased popularity in this type of hunting. Mr. Lehman's bear is the first lo be reported "taken" out this season at the Lethbridge office of the Alberta Fish and Game Commission.

A fish and game represents live said there is a specia archery hunting zone near Banff National Park and the archery hunting season opens one week earlier than the fire- arm season. In the special archery hunt ing zones and during the earlj bow hunting season archers are allowed to wear camouflaged clothing and disguise their bows with special camouflage covers. When hunting in regulai hunting zones during the norm al season bow hunters mus wear the same bright colore< protective clothing as the fire- arms hunters are required to wear. There have been 10 archery hunting licences sold in Leth- bridge this season. Trustees seek special meeting By RON CALDWELL Staff Writer Officials of Lethhridge School District No. 51 are seeking a meeting with Education Minis- ter Lou Hyndrnan to determine where the minister stands on the divided school year experi- ment in Lethbridge. The education minister in the previous government 'an- nounced in June thai the ex- perimental project, which was to run for three more years, would have to be modified. Local public school board of- ficials hope to meet with Mr. Hyndman when he visits the city Oct. 9, to see what plans he has for the future of the di- vided school year. Since the experiment started two years ago, Grade 12 stu- dents have been writing exam- inations in December and early June, which are prepared and marked by local teachers. This enabled them to enter university in January rather than the following September, and to attend logically-planned semesters through the school year. The experiment has drawn strong support from teachers and students, in surveys done in the past and again in the current battle. Public schools superintendent Dr. 0. P. Larson polled teach- ers in the high schools involved and found a large majority fa- vored continuation of the pro- gram. Teachers at Winston Church- hill High School were unani- mously in favor, while teachers at the Lethbridge Collegiate In- stitute showed slightly less sup- port. Students who have written to the board have overwhelmingly Work experience program approved endorsed the divided school concept. While the public school board las taken a definite stand against the government's deci- sion, the separate school board las not yet decided what action o take. Separate school trustees are expected to make their deci- sion at a special meeting Thursday at noon. The importance of the sepa- rate board's decision was stressed by several public school board trustees and offi- cials. "If the separate school board supports it we can produce a strong Dr. Larson said. "If the two boards are op- posed, then our case will be very much weakened." The divided school year issue arose when the department of education bowed to pressures from several larger school dis- tricts who wanted to offer sim- ilar modified school year pro- grams but were not being al- lowed to do so. The Lethbridge public school board has given final approval to a unique work experience program for a special group of senior high school students in the city. On Monday, a small group of slow learners will join the work force while still continuing their education. Their day will be split equally between regu- lar classes and their jobs. Bob Gall, director of school services for the district said the purpose of the program .is to provide the students with work experience and to improve their ability to meet 'and work with people. "In previous years, these stu- dents simply graduated from the senior class and attempted to seek employment, often un- Mr. Gall said. "This program will provide them with social skills, under- standing of employment rela- tionships and practical work skills." Initially three or four stu- dents will be involved in the program but as many as 10 could be taking part before the school year is completed. "We are starting on a limit- ed basis in order to attend to the program more Mr. Gall said. Several local firms have agreed to hire the students and provide special assistance, where required. These include: Devon Nursing Home, Simpson- Sears, Southern Printers, Ericksen's Family Restaurant Bert and Mac's and Northern Bus Lines. Several other companies have expressed a willingness to par ticipate in the program anc they will be involved when the project expands. The students will change jobs about every three months to give them a wide sampling o the job market and to enable them to acquire additions skills. They will be paid a minimum wage of 85 cents an hour. Concern was expressed by some board members tha some students may feel tempt ed to quit school and become full-time employees. "We have direct contact be- tween the school and the var ious employers, so if the stu dent is offered a full-time job the situation will be discussec closely by all those Mr. Gall said. "That situation could develop but I think we're ready to han die he said. Send the Thnnksgiver for Thanksgiving Thank someons this year wilh the Thankigiver.
