Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 5, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta New regulations aid non-credit school courses EDMONTON (CP) ad- vanced Education Minister Jim Foster yesterday announc- ed new financing for school boards offering non-credit eve- ning courses. New regulations will assist the boards and other commun- ity agencies in offering a wide Something Is Happening At'. MKUTOK 5 GUARANTEED YEAR LIGHT BULBS PRICE All popular sizes 1602 3rd Ave. S.

"These incentives are aimed at people involved in com- munity development, not just school authorities. The thrust is towards co-operative pro- gramming and community ser vice." He said boards will receive for each instructional hour when offering courses of gen eral interest such as the citizen and the law or automobile main tenance. Where self improve- ment programs are offered such as English or French as a second working language, adul basic literacy, and courses on significant community prob- lems such as drug abuse, the grant will be for each in structional hour. The old regulations maximum grants of an hour for second languages and severely limited the types of courses which' would qualify he said. An additional sum equal to 15 per cent of total instruc tional grants will be paid to school boards to cover admini strative, leadership and ad vertising costs. A further sum will be paid if school boards co-ordinate their non credit program with those of other community agencies. Because of the problems of delivering educational services in the rural areas, the depart- ment also will help bring in out- side resource persons where no suitable local people are avail- able. The new regulations are de- signed to ensure that tuition fees will be low enough "to make it feasible for any inter- ested person, regardless of eco- nomic means, to be involved in a course cf study."

PHONE JIM FOSTER April 5, 1973 THE LETHBRIDCE HERALD IS Nixon's meat decision hailed, panned Ly ROD CURRIE Canadian Press Staff Writer With the price of meat head- line news in much of the world these days, many European and other leaders look with iil-dis- guised envy on President Nixon's move to freeze meat prices in the United States. But while giving him full marks for political savvy and tuning, many European experts see his move as something of an empty gesture that might even result in keeping Ameri- can meat prices higher than they might otherwise have been in the future. What concerns them even more, however, is that the Nixon decision has brought new pressure on European govern- ments to follow Prime Minister Heath of Britain did in an about-face earlier when he emulated Nixon's wage-price- freeze policy. With meat prices even higher in Japan and most European centres than they are in the U.S., a number of consumer groups and opposition parties have seized on Nixon's inter- vention as proof that their gov- ernments could do the same. European governments say they they put up an impressive argument. In Britain, Norman Buchan, the Opposition Labor spokesman on agriculture affairs, urged Heath to "swallow his pride" and freeze nieat prices. The suspicion in Europe is that Nixon waited until prices were at their peak, and likely to go down somewhat anyway, be- fore ordering the freeze. That way he could capitalize on the favorable public reaction with- out harming the economy or an- tagonizing the farmers. If Britain and others had wanted to try a similar tack, the time would have been late last year before meat prices started to inch down a bit. Any- way, as one economist put it, "price ceilings tend to become price floors" and such a move in the long run might have worked to keep prices up. Many speculate that this is what will happen in the U.S. Aside from that, the U.S. has a better chance of making the policy succeed than Britain would because while the U.S. imports only five per cent of its meat, Britain imports 60 per cent cf its lamb and almost 25 per cent of its beef.
