LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA Ask oboul Fhotogray Tro Icr.s !ha! tt 'jnfjr-i Home-care plan to be considered The provincial government will "seriously consider" the in- troduction of home-care and other supporting programs to cut down the rising cost of the public health service delivery system. Ttiis assurance was given by Neil Crawford, minister of health and social development, in a letter to The Herald re- ceived Friday. Mr. Crawford was asked to comment on two recent Herald articles, one on the home-care program, and another on the lack of co-ordination among lo- cal hospitals. The government is very con- cerned over the rapidly esca- lating cost in the health care sector, rising at more than 10 per cent a year, the minister said. "Our approach is to explore alternate methods of health care delivery and to operate the system as effectively os he said.

Tighten enrolment reins The Alberta School Trustees' Association plans to seek a meeting with Education Min- ister Lou Hyndman to press for Immediate action on "the problem" of foreign students enrolling m high schools in this province. "Foreign students arc enter- ing Canada in ever increas- ing numbers and many a r o using the schools of Alberta and other provinces as a back door to said Haralri Gunderson, ASTA presi- dent, in a press release. Mr. Gunderson said school boards will be advised about the problem and will be asked that they not enrol foreign stu- dents unless they have landed immigrant status, have a good command of the English lan- guage and can pay non-resi- dent fees of a year. "The ASTA does not want to be tagged with a discrimina- tion said Mr. Gunder- son. "But Alberians should bo made aware that it costs al- most a year to educate a high school student, and I don't see any reason why the- taxpayers of this country should bear the costs of educating an- other country's students." The release said 221 Chinese students enrolled in A 1 h e r t a schools last year. Mr. Gunderson said Alberta schools are being deluged with letters of application from for- eign studenls, mostly from Hong Kong, asking for permis- sion lo register in different high schools. "If the principal, for humane or other reasons, writes a let- ter of permission to a student, then the student presents tho letter to the Canadian immi- gration office and requests a student visa which the immi- gration office cannot refuse.

Mr. Gimderson said the situ- ation has been brought to the attention of the Canadian School Trustees' Association and he expects it will be dealt with in its entirety at the asso- ciation's national convention in Edmonton May. 28-30, Until the problem is resolved, all school principals in Alberta should be instructed not to write to students not already in the country, granting them permission to register, he said. Another alternative suggested by Mr. Gunderson is for Cana- dian educators to make an in- dustry of the schools as far as foreign students are concerned. "There are spaces available, and maybe we should say to these countries: Sure, we will educate your young people, but for a price the same price that Canadian taxpayers have to pay for educating their own he said. City seeks safety officer The application deadline for the position of city safety olfi- cer has been extended until May 11. Hay assistant to the city manager, said the extension period resulted from an oversight by the city when the position was not publicly ad- vertised. The availability of the job was announced March 16 when the current safety officer, Bill Falconer, tendered his resigna- tion and indicated his plans to become a forest ranger at the West Castle ranger station near Pincher Creek. Announcement of the replace- ment for Mr. Falconer is not expected for at least two weeks, Mr. MacPherson said. "Several oilier persons at city hall have had training in safety and will be able to fill in until a replacement is he said. "Safety is a 24-hours-a-d a y job in a corporation the sire of the city of Lethbridge. In con- sidering applications we are looking for persons with exper- ience in many fields." Necessary- background f o r the job should include a know- ledge of electricity, mechanics, driving, workmen's compen- sation regulations and the abil- ity to get along with people, tributor towards the develop ment of Indian athletes; break- ing down the communication barriers which exist among In- dians themselves; and the fore- runner to a North and South American all-Indian type of Olympic event. Edmonton Alderman Dave Ward said, "the games will do I more for Indians than all the political haranging that has I occurred In the past 50 years." They could become a symbol I of advancement for the socially deprived peoples of the world, he said.
