Mr. Smith said the trip wa designed lo take the students uut to sec Ihc things the studied in school thus mak ing them more real and mort interesting. 'Education is not takin enough of a role in providing challenge to our Mr. Smith said. "Tliis will be pilot project designed lo offer challenge. "Instead of talking a b o u things out of the air, we're studying things as they are." George Sevan, director curriculum and inslructiona services for the public s c h o o district, said he was in fu] agreement with the proposer, trip. "You can only study sociolog and science and the outdoors s [ar by looking at books am bringing speakers to the class he said.

Hamilton principal J. E Langford, also present at the meeting explained that outdoor recreation is a special physica education class now permittee under a new department of ed ucation curriculum guide. The school has designed the course itself, to involve exten sive class research and discus sion in outdoor living, which the field trip is to supplement Trustees Carl Johnson am Bill Brown objected to spend ing money for the students' foot on the trip, suggesting they could contribute their own (about Mr. Langford and Mr. Smith immediately objected, pointing out that this would be a hard ship on a number of families in volved, probably causing the students' absence due to "ill ness" to save embarrassment. Mr. Langford also said too many school projects which are valuable and popular tend to attract only students whose par- ents can afford them, because hey often cost an extra or ;10 thus prejudicing the school system to the more well- to-do families in Lethbridge. The board defeated a motion >y Mr. Brown calling for trans- portation support only, and ap- iroved the request for all nec- essary funds. The field trip will take place n mid-November. Youth Hostel Seeks Funds To Continue A meeting of tha preventive social services advisory com- mittee and the youth services council was to be held today to jrepare a submission to city council regarding the operation of Odyssey House, the city's summer youth hostel. Funds for the hostel were ap- iroved earlier this summer for a four month period, which expires Oct. 15. During that time the centre las operated as a temper a r y irjme for transient young peo- le. The problem now faced by he youth council, and one ;hich it intends lo bring to city ouncil, is how to finance the Deration beyond Oct. 15. Funds for the trial period this ummer were provided on an 0-20 per cent split between the rovince and the city. ATTRACTIVE Dr. C. D- Stewart, tCC president, left, discusses budget mailers with Dr. Henry Kolesar, chairman of Alberta colleges commission, which oversees operations of all Alberta community colleges. Dr. Kolesar was given a special lour of all LCC facilites Tuesday. Education Minister To Open New LCC Areas It took more than a year of planning and construction work, but the Lethbridge Community College now has one of the most efficient and exten s i v e shop areas in the province.

High ceilinged auto and farm mechanics laboratories will now permit in-depth sludies by large classes of students, accommo- dating general interest pro- grams, apprenticeship pro- grams and school agricul- ture studies. Extremists Said Favored In TV Political Coverage By JOAN BOWMAN Herald Slalf Writer GREAT FALLS Televisio does not give the full sense of political movement because tends to pay most heed to e tremists, those with the 'high est "attention says th chairman of the speech com munications department at th University of Montana. Df. Wayne Pace, president o the International Corrunun i c a tions Association, told delegate to a recent conference here American Women in Radio an Television, that TV gives cov erage to the "wave creators rather than to the less radica quieter members of a move- ment. "There is no doubt the medi influence the silsnt majority but the silent majority is no represented on the media. "Reporters' perception maj not be attuned to a finely de- fined like the silent ma jority." The media give extensive cov erags to those who are trying Steel Work Starts Soon At City Hall Work on an addition lo the ingineering department at city lau is progressing well, a spo. tesman for Glen Little Con- traction Ltd. of Lethbridge aid Tuesday. Walls for the second floor .ddition are complete and work will start soon on putting in the teel for the roof. The job, being done at a cost of should be finished in bout two months. The renovations will allow lore space for offices, drafts' ten and files. AT CUNNINGHAMS WE CARE "to stir things up without any idea of the purpose" of their actions, Dr. Pace said. A specialist in organizational communications, he said the strongest emphasis in the me- dia is to move audiences to a "totally neutral point of view." Coverage of the extremes of an idea or movement tends to place viewers in a non com- municative middle ground. "The Federal Communica- tions Commission is continual- ly forcing broadcasters to give no meaning" to their reports. Dr. Pace indicated however that TV has the best chance of dascribing the complexity of a situation, since through its com- bination of visual and audio characteristics it allowed view- ers "an experience." Radio is restricted to words and newspapers to the printed word. He suggested newspapers, de- spite continual warnings they would disappear witli the vent of radio and then televi- sion, will prevail. Newspapers, like "up to-date give "private messages which allow readers time for thought." The press is "not so overpowering as television." Television, often a cure for loneliness, is a one way com- munication but it "gives the il- lusion of intimacy and imme- diacy." However "we don't have the foggiest notion what happens when we watch TV. We don't know why we're being influ- enced." Areas the shops occupied 1 year, now vacated, have bsen renovated for use in electronics, special shops and almost all of the school of agriculture's new facilities. The new area also Includes extensive welding facilities and equipment, installed for maxi- mum safety, flexibility and cleanliness (almost nothing rests directly on the floors, which can be swept quickly Both arc and qxy-acetylene welding equipment is available, and students can learn general welding, pipe welding and pat- tern cutting. The new machine shop facil- ities can handle machini n g parts (lathework) and sheet metal work. Refrigeration ap- ;st prenticeship will be available, and the electrical labs are equipped lo expand into an ap- pliance repair program. Other special equipment In- cludes a small 30-ton pressure press, metal inert gas weld- ing facilities set up for semi- automatic welding and a radio- graph cutting machine. Shop classrooms and offices complete the new vocational fa- cilities. Fin McPherson, director of the school of technical voca- tional education, says the col- lege can now offer the first and second year of several appren- ticeship programs, and has fa- c i1i t i e s (but lacks approval from the Alberta apprentice- ship board) to offer the third and fourth (final) year of most programs.
