Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 1, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta The Lethbrldge Herald Third Section Lethbridge, Alberta, Wednesday, April PAGES 33 40 Teachers Urged To Take Lead In Guiding Young People Value System Is Essential By JIM W1LSOV HcraU Stiff Writer CALGARY Alberta Teachers' .Association president Ivan Stonehocker eaiied here for i teachers to provide "an acceptable statidard of values which will guide young people into the future without fear. "A state of restlessness exists i in society today, and as teach-1 ers we must be aware of these he said. "For 1 humans to live contentedly, a 1 vahie system is essential il 1 must be honest enough and 1 idealistic enough to encourage 1 man's to climb to hagh-( er levels." Mr. Stonehocker was present ing bis president's report for the ATA's 1969 activities to more than 450 teachers attend the 53rd annual representa fives assembly of the ATA. He said because of these conflicts he Cook "strong exception" to use of "drastic action to gain teachers' ends. A major 1 focus of these militant been the new school act. Mr. Stonehocker said the new ct" provides direction, but the critical aspect will be the im-lemenlation of it. "Our association can marked-y influence this in a positive manner it is not enough to just oppose: ve must be able to demonstrate in future that the action we took was sound. "I am fully convinced that we lave the dedicated teachers, he competent staff and the followed in the final draft DOW before the legislature-He said it was a credit to Cie TA's past work that the 'government has been so concerned o give the new act a full pubic hearing and listen closely to submissions from the ATA, which hasn't been the case in other provinces. Nevertheless, he said, the new act has many potential problems, and "ammdments and will be made when necessary." Stocehocker said one important point teachers must nske to their local boards is he ucdesireability cf collective employer (school board) associations being formed, to make block contract negotiations with teachers from several districts. (This would be easily accomplished under a new school act provision placing teacher bargaining under the Alberta labor act instead of under the school act as it has been in the past.) "Any bargaining which employees from negotiat-ng with their employers is he said. "Local negotia-ions (without school board as-cciations) have produced set-Icments in 80 to 90 per cent f the districts during the last wo decades." He said the school trustees iave said they are in favor of regional bargaining units that would amalgamate several jurisdictions. But all conditions are negotiable under the labor act, he said, which could result .a many contract changes if Icachers start to press more strongly for changes in working conditions, as well as in the salaries and fringe benefits that ir.ost bargaining now involves. He offered "strong words of caution" to school boards: "Consult your local teacher executive before you join an employer's association ...they Mill be brutally frank with you in explaining the dangers before you plunge into it." he said, "and cannot support those militant actions which may produce more restrictive legislation may engender further public criticism (of teachers and o education) and may cause marked dissension within our own ranks." He said the ATA's provincia executive. has made six submissions to the school act re write committee, and o their recommendations Team TORONTO (CP) A team from Montreal won the final match at the Canadian National regional bridge championships by a single point.

U.S. Meat Import Riesfcictions Won't Affect Canada Pierre Juneau, commission chairman, said hi an interview the CRTC's cable policy will be announced "quite soon." He de- cKiied to specify a date. But many broadcasters and other sources say the commis- sion's announcement wiB. be made well before a convention of 'the Canadian Association of Broadcasters openng April il.' The convention is being held just prior to a CRTC pubnc hearing April 14 to give broad- casters a chance to prepare submissions regarding the com- OTTAWA (CP) Canadian neat exports to tfae United States are not expected to be af- fected by tfae U.S. federal gw- emnent's current moves to re- ctrkt meat imports, Deputy Ag- riculture Minister S. B. Wil- fams said today. Mr. WHMams said he sees no reason far a change in the tradi- tlonal U.S.-Canadian under- standog that meat be permitted to move between the two coun- tries, subject only to normal tariff regulations. He noted that Canada's price for meat is identical ;with that of the U.S. unlike those 'from other countries, therefore, Canada's meat ex- ports do not create continual pressure on the U.S. market. "The U.S.'restrictions'are oV signed primarily to relieve pres- sure exerted by Ihe wide price differential of exports from such countries as. Australia, New Zealand and Argentina." U.S. meat imports have in- creased substantially so far tHs year, but are being limited by voluntary agreements. The Nixon administration has insisted on the agreements to avoid the diplomatic embarrass- ment of having .to impose man- datory restraints under a 1964 law. By Monday, all countries ex- porting meat to the U.S. had signed the agreements, except Canada and Honduras. Honduras was expected to sign momentarily, but U.S. agri- culture department officials, who administer the ojuota sys- tem, said Canada was not asked to sign. ft.. nus or rtnowa TWATMINT Army Major Jeirm N.

Host Perot organization "United mission's proposals for increas- ing Canadian content on radio and TV. The proposals, announced by me CRTC in February, can for TV stations to devote at least W per cent of their daily schedules to Canadian programming. ENFORCE MUSIC RULE The CRTC also proposes to compel radio stations to ptay at least '30 per cent Canadian music. One of the stronger objections raised by broadcasters to the recommendation is that they would encourage TV viewers-to switch from Canadian channels to U.S. channels available on cabie. Radio listeners would react the same way, ers say-. Broadcasters argue this gives caMe operators an unfair com- petitive advantage and could de- stroy the Canadian industry. Mr. Juneau said in the inter- view that while cabte operators might enjoy some advantage if the proposals 'were put into ef- fect under present circumst- ances, this would not likely ma- terialize because of the added responsibility that may well be placed on them. It seems likely that such re- sponsibility would consist of re- quiring cable companies to cfrry a specified amount of local programming and Cana- dian content. With only 12-chan- nel capacity on most cable sys- tems, this could place severe limits on the numbers, of U.S. channels carried, REMAINS FIRM Mr. Juneau said the commis- sion Is giving no thought to sof- tening its Canadian content pro- posals, although these would he '.'flexible" until all 'points of view are heard.
