Bo ready with a pair of Pmcriplion SunglaslCf, Ronning discusses old Chinas By JOU MA i Herald Staff Writer Had it nol been for the Kor- ean war, Canada would have recognized the People's Renvib- lic of China 20 years earlier, Dr, Ctiestcr A. Ronning, form- er charge d'affaires in Nanking said Friday night. Dr. Honnine, who retired from diplomatic service in after a long and distinguished foreign office career that also saw him as ambassador to Norway and high commissioner to India, was speaking on Mao's New Men at Ihe University of Letbbridgc. "On January 25, 1950, the day I received instruction to fi- nalize the exchange ol diplo- matic relations, the Korean war broke Dr. Ronning told 170 persons attending the fiftli and last lecutre in the China lecture series. Born in Fancheng, Hupch, China, Dec. 13, 1891 to a mis- sionary family of Norwegian descent, Dr. Ronning was edu- cated at the University of Min- nesota, the University of Al- bert and in China. A resident of Camrose now, he was a former MLA and taught F.t schools in Alberta and in China. A delegate to Ihe Korean conference in Geneva, Dr. Ron- ning, one of the recipients of honorary doctorates at the U of L spring convocation, re- vealed that Canada asserted presure on the United States Willie Dixoii concert Wednesday Willie Dixon and the Chicago All Stars will give a concert and dance of modern blues Wed- nesday at the Exhibition Pa- vilion as part of an eight city Western Canada tour.

Dr. Ronning did not Ro into details of his role in ending the Korean war, adding ihat lie is currently writing a hook of his career. Dr. Ronning said Chairman Mao Tsc-UinK has listed eight qualifications for his new men, including cultivating good ha- bits in the interest of the peo- ple, good education, willing- ness to labor, self-reliance and making sacrifices for the na- tion. One of the most respected heroes in China is Dr. Nor- Bethnne, a Candian medi- cal doctor who died in China treating the wounded during the Sino-Japanese War, Dr. lionning said. Chairman Mao lias written an essay on Dr. Norman Be- thune, lecturing the Chinese to learn Dr. Bethune's spirit of proletarian internationalism. In the two-hour lecture, Dr. Ronning traced the cause of the cultural revolution to the root- ing of Chinese civilization in agriculture. He saitl Mr. Mao wisely based China's commu- nist revolution in the peasants, and not in the proletariat as the European communists did. Earlier in the day, Dr. Ron- ning gave a 50-minute informal question and answer session with U of L students, and a a -iO-minute Interview to The Heralit. On the future of Taiwan, Dr. Ronning speculated on the pos- sibility of Taiwan's becoming an autonomous province of Chi- na, retaining the management of its domestic affairs while Peking looks after its foreign affairs and defence. President Nixon did the right thing in reversing the U.S. China policy by his going to Peking, Dr. Ronning said.

Ed Finlay Photo Big teacher education need is for more co-operation By RON CALmVFI.L ilcrald Staff Writer There must he increased co- operation among all groups in- volved in teacher education if the quality of teachers is lo improve, said Dr. E. .K Haw- kesworth, deputy minister of education m Lotbbridge Fri- day night. "It should be reasonable to state that co-operative action is highly desirable, if not es- sential. "In fact, T would maintain that without it, we will not be able to move from our present position for at least a decade." Dr. H awkcsworth said there is a noticeable polarization of positions in both the Alberta Teachers' Association and the Alberta School Trustee's Asso- ciation which could be detri- mental to teacher education. He made the comments in an address to a conference at the University of Lethbridge aimed at bringing the four major groups involved in teacher edu- cation the ATA, the ASTA, the University and the govern- ment together to determine how they can best join forces to improve the quality of teach- er education. Dr. Hawkesworth said a ba- sic characteristic of a modern educator is that f'this person is future oriented. "This person has well devel- oped abilities in the human re- lations and personal interac- tion skills. He fosters open- mindedness, creative thinking, adaptability and resourceful- ness in his students. "He is looking toward the fu- ture rather than the past or even the present." Dr. Hawkesworth said there seems to be growing emphasis Palm Dairies Ltd. may buy out Purity on more practical training for prospective teachers. A multitude of plans are being considered for changing this aspect of teacher educa tion, he said, including a fill year of teacher internship in a classroom situation before per manent certification is granted Fie warned that any move improve the quality of teachers is going to cost money. 'There is little doubt that ex pandecl field experience pro grams would mean an expand ed he said. "Also its going to cost yo' more to pay for these bette teachers after you have pro duced them." Dr. Hawkesworth said th question of whether more prac ttcal training will produce fu In re-oriented teachers is "cru ciaJ."

Mr. Gruenwald asked in the egislalure what protection the public has of the "perpetual care" of cemeteries, if the op- erator runs into financial diffi- culties and cannot continue. Merv Leitch, the attorney jencral, said the Cemeteries Act requires cemetery opera- ors to put into a trust fund an amount of money from the sale of every plot. This fund is to meet such emergencies. Mr. Gruenwakd asked if the cemetery operator didn't follow :he law or if the trust fund didn't have enough money, would the government step in to ensure that the operation continues. Mr. Letich replied "that Is a question we would have to an- swer should that occasion ever arise."
