Mr. Foster said in an in- terview hs has written U of L Chancellor James Oshiro proposing a meeting likely in Lethbridge. The minister also wants to meet with the Lethbridge Community College board sometime this spring and felt perhaps he could arrange a meeting with the college board too while in the city. In the legislature, Dick Gruenwald (SC Lethbridge West) questioned the minis- ter about a letter from Dr. Oshiro urging the establish- DISTRICT TRUSTEES TO MEET District delegates of the Alberta School Trustees' As- sociation will meet in Leth- bridge for a one-day confer- ence April 24 followed by a two-day closed meeting of the ASTA executive board. ASTA executives, including president Harald Gunderson of Calgary and Zone Six rep- resentative John Boras of Lethbridge, will begin local sessions April 27. The evening executive meeting, from p.m. to 9 p.m., will be held in the board room of Lethbridge separate school district office. Regular business meet- ings will continue April 28 at 9 a.m. in the Park Plaza Motor Hotel. None of the ASTA exec- utive meetings will be open to the public. It is not known what items will be discussed during the two-day agenda. The April 24 zone meeting will include reports from the ASTA executwe, represent- ed by Mr. Boras; tbe educa- tional council, through Leth- bridge public school trustee Carl Johnson: lie Southern Alberta Educational Tele- vision Association, by local public trustee Doug Card; and the Southern Alberta School Authorities Associa- tion, from chairman Ray Clark. Mr. Clark and SASAA re- cently weathered a three- iveek strike by teachers in 18 rural districts. Wage agree- ments between SASAA and its teachers have still not been settled, although a re- port from a government-ap- pointed arbitrator is expect- ed by April 30. Discussions will also be hsld at the zone meeting on teacher training and intern- ship, transportation and the modified or divided school year. Zone delegates will meet from 9 a.m. to about 3 p.m. at Sven Ericksen's Family Restaurant. rnenl of an autonomous corn- mission between the govern- ment and the universities in Alberta. Mr. Gruenwald ask if the minister had received a let- ter "protesting the proposed amendments to the univer- sities act and the reorganiza- tion of the department of ad- vanced education." Foster said Dr. Oshiro's letter was more in the nature of an enquiry than a protest. Mr. Gruenwald asked if the letter suggested a commis- sion to serve a buffer be- tween government and the province's three universities to replace the universities commission which is being abolished this month. The minister replied, "Tbe letter did express some con- cern about the autonomy of the institutions and in my re- ply to the honorable chancel- lor I indicated that in my judgement the amendments to the Universities Act cur- rently before the house do not in any way affect the autonomy of the institutions Mr. Foster said "There may be a misunderstanding in the minds of some sena- tors concerning these facts of the act, which is of course one cf the reasons I wish to speak with them." The reorganization of the advanced education depart- ment and the abolition of the universities commission have been thoroughly discussed with officials at the Univer- sity of Calgary and the Uni- versity of Alberta, he added. NDP leader Grant Notley asked if the U of C senate has formally suggested a buffer between the govern- ment and the universities. Mr. Foster said a number of groups including the U of C, have suggested some form of buffer out "not necessarily a commission." Seal funds short of goal The Lethbridge Easter Seal campign is still short of its goal, the local fund raising chairman said Tuesday. Gerry Probe says the cam- paign has received good re- sponse and should suprass its goal for 1973 even though it was hindered before it started. The sponsoring Kiwanis Club of Green Acres were sheets of Easter Seals short of the requested to supply the Leth- bridge area when the cam- paign kicked off earlier this month.
