He said teachers in Alberta have failed in the past to tell the public what is going on in education and what is needed in the schools. Teachers must have a say in educational changes, but must present a planned and positive program which looks after both then1 needs and their students' needs, Mr. Stonehocker said.

Agra Industries, which re- cently took over ownership of the local firm, has cable sys- tems in Gstevan and Weyburn, Sask., and is planning to ac- quire a fourth system this fall in Powell River, B.C.

The firm may also acquire more equipment and enlarge its staff. Local productions were start- ed last December on Channel 3, in compliance with the Ca- nadian Radio-Television Com- mission's stipulation that cable firms originate programs of community interest. The firm last week moved its programming to Channel 2 be- cause of signal interference from the two Lethbridge TV stations and the two in Great Falls, Montana. Mr. Speed said local "big productions" would include an outdoor show, Bland Approach, Alberta Dance Festival, and travel and entertainment shows.

A more realistic view has to be taken of what's been done and where we are going, Park Superintendent William J. Brig- gle has said. Among the major problems to be considered is the Going- To-The-Sun Highway which is becoming antiquated, requiring expensive heavy maintenance. The stone walls along the high- way along the Garden Wall west of the Logan Pass now are being replaced. The park's sewage system MFC Meets Wednesday Only two development appli- cations are on the agenda for Wednesday's meeting of the Municipal Planning Commis- sion.

Loud criticism has been voiced over the oper- ation of the park incinerator that serves the headquarters- McDonald area. The smoke- belching operation is likened to lumber mills insofar as air pollution is concerned. A major concern in the park management study is preserva- tion of wilderness concepts and wildlife, and avoidance as far as possible of situations that bring conflict. Glacier's present bear policy will be reviewed by the team. The policy has reduced bear- people contact. Mr. Pound replaces A. V. Svoboda, who has retired from the commission.
