An RCMP spokesman in Ed- monton said they have a path- ologist's report that the body of the children bore marks of having been molested prior to death. The spokesman said no ar- rests have been made. An inquest has been ordered into the deaths of Lorri Ann Sackman, six, and her cousin, Wanda May Sackman, eight. Redcliff is five miles north- west of Medicine Hat. School Has Grades 1-6 The Agnes Davidson Elemen- tary School this year will have students from Grades 1 to 6, instead of limiting enrolment to Grade 1 to 4 only, as re- ported in The Herald's special schools supplement Monday. said Syd Evans, from the Eastern Irrigation District near Brooks. "There shouldn't be any difference in the way we've paid." It is usually assumed that a rural teacher's salary is the result of a lower cost of living in rural ar'eas, but rural teach- ers here said this assumption is incorrect. Mr. Evans said the low sal- aries result firm an attitude of rural taxpayers and parents, who he said tend to treat teach- ers as "second class ATA officer F. J. Ackerman raised the argument when he spoke to tile conference about salary determination from the association's point of view. "When a teacher or wnit' becomes so attached to h: place of employment (the rura school) as to disregard th higher payments obtainable fo his skill in other jurisdictions, Mr. Ackerman said, "he nuts beat the cost of his unwilling ness to move."

Completion date for the has been set for before Christmas, Coffee Drinkers Dilemma !y MARGARET LUCKHURST Herald Staff Writer Coffee drinkers who are con- ised at the variety of prices rarged locally for a cup of offee might feel sonre satis- action in knowing that on Par- araent Hill in Ottawa there is qually as much confusion over rices, even though they are enerally lower. In Lethbridge there is a kind rule of thumb which can be guideline to help those deter- mined to get bigger and better ups of coffee for less. Take out orders from drive- ins charge 15 cents per cup of coffee, because natura 11 y you're not likely to be around to have your cup filled up again. Some restaurant. drive- ins where you eat inside charge 15 cents fer cup, but will give free refills. As a rule, hotels and deluxe eating houses charge 20 cents a cup of coffee with as many refills as you can swallow, but do not charge for coffee with meals ordered from UK bill of fare.

Phone 327-459 "IF SERVICE COUNTS-COUNT ON US Cafes and snack bars have a sliding scale for their custom- ers, offering coffee at 15 cents per cup, but have a surcharge of 10 cents cents for each addi- tional cup. It's really not too hard to figure how much you will have to pay for a cup of coffee in town if you keep the little guidelines in mind. In Ottawa however, especial- ly for public servants, it's so confusing it's almost enough to make people swear off. Up until Aug. 17, coffee was 13 cents per cup which included two creams. The prices were upped to 15 cents black, or 18 cents for two creams when it was discovered that some em- ployees were taking the extra cream home. Since the yolume of coffee used on parliament hill is pretty high, incensed workers began to boycott the coffee shops and lobby for low- ering of prices. So it seems coffee is not only a national habit, but it's also a financial problem. Tea anyone? Music In Public Schools Hit By Budget By JOAN BOWMAN Herald Staff Writer Lethbridge piiblic school will go into the new schoo year Aug. 25 minus a musi supervisor, string specialis and with no string program. Grant Ericksen, music super visor since 1966, has resigned his position and is to teaci music in Raymond at the ju nior and senior high schoo levels. Malcolm M a cDonald, siring specialist for two years, moyet with his family last week t Edmonton to enter a master program in music at the Um versity of Alberta. The string program, directei by Mr. MacDonald, is not es peeled to resume until the 1971 72 year, if then, according t Dr. 0. P. Larson, superin tendent of the public schoo system. Still remaining in a supcrv: sory position is Janet Larso (no relation to Dr. Larson) who will continue to co-Ordin ate and direct music program in the elementary schools. The positions of both musi supervisor and string specialis were dispensed with by th school board because of finan cial culbacks, Dr. Larson saic He indicated the board ha looked at other areas ari physical education and reac ing where co-ordinators o specialists were employed. The music program was th most susceptible because i had two supervisors (Mr Ericksen and Miss Larson) and a specialist, compared ti the other subjects' one co-or dinator each. Mr. Erieksen, whose specia responsibility was band pro- grams, was given the chance to teach social studies at Allan Watson School, at the same sal ary. This he declined. He is currently at Brigham Young University completing his masters degree in music. Mr. MacDonald was also ask- ed if he would remain in the system, teaching non-music subjects. He refused and Ms contract was subsequently ter minated. (Mr. MacDonald said he resigned.) Influencing the board's deci- sion also was the diminishing of interest in the string pro gram, Dr. Larson said. A study had indicated about 10 students planned to enter the string classes in the 1970 fall semes- ter, not enough to warrant re- tention of a string specialist. Mr. MacDonald, or the other aand, contended string teach- ing was started too late in stu- dents' school life. He taught the program at ilbert Paterson and Hamilton Junior High Schools (plus bane at but the program "died out" at Hamilton "be- cause you can't start training students at Grade" 7 and level. "It takes about four or five rears to get students to a fair- y good performing level. For ,wo years, I tried to get class es started in Grade 3 so we'd lave feeder classes for the ju- nior high schools." He said there was no co-or- dinated plan for strings in the and "now there's no chance of getting one." String classes at Gilbert Pat- erson were held in the cafe- ia. At Hamilton, classes were leld in the home economics oom for the 1968-69 year. In he second year they were con- ucted in the nurse's room, and if. someone was in the ice-principal's office. Initially about 30 students lad signed up for strings in ach school. Visit the FLOWER SHOW THIS FRIDAY AND SATURDAY Exhibition Grandstand a ms OVVCf Shop Marquis Holel Bldg. Phona 327-1515 Meanwhile Mrs. Ericksen, in a telephone interview, said she couldn't understand the board's position on the cutback. "They would have been pay- ing Grant the same salary to teach social studies. "He started to establish a music program and now it's all going down the drain." A city music teacher said the teachers had "felt bad" about Mr. Ericksen's resignation. The board is lending to have teach- ers give instruction under no organized situation, he said. "The teachers are upset. They wonder where the cutting is going to stop." Dr. Larson suggested eo-or- dinators are the most easily let go because they don't actually teach students. "They are laid on as additional personnel to make classroom teaching bet- ter. "We may get new co-ordina- tor in music, or we may dis- miss others. It depends on the financial situation." Dr. Larson said Winston Churchill and Wilson Junior High Schools had a highly qualified man in band instruc- tor Willie Mathis, and a man of similar talent in Jerry Fokar- r.ey at Lethbridge Collegiate In- stitute and Gilbert Paterson Ju- nior High School. A new band teacher has been hired for Hamilton and addi- tional staff may he handling vocal music at'WCHS, Music teaching m the e 1 e m e n tary schools is normally handled by two or three teachers, of the individual school's staff, with special training in music. "The key to a good music program is the leaching per- sonnel. If they are competent, the program will grow Dr. Lai-son said. e Being Shortened KALISPELL Lethbridge Spokane route via Kalispell, Montana will be shortened by 30 to 40 miles when a new road across the Grain Groups Get Together A common need for finding new markets for Canadian wheat has resulted in merging of two Prairie wheat growers' organizations. Western Farmer's Grain Ex- port Explorations, formed last year to encourage farmers to travel the world markets sell- ing their own grain, and the PaUiser Wheat Growers' As- sociation, will form a new as- sociation as yet unnamed. Steve Gcndur, of Lestock, Sask. and spokesman for Ex- plorations, said both organiza- tions see their future requiring them to have control of their own industry. "We've had enough experts telling us what to do, so now we'll tell the experts what they should Mr. Gendur said. The merger is expected to be completed this week. Bitteroot range will be com- pleted in two years. The freeway, from Thompson Falls, Montana, to Wallace, Idaho, crosses the state border through Lookout Pass. The new million road, involving Hie biggest single earth contract in Idaho highway history, will carry four lanes through a 90- foot cut in the pass. Some of the fills will be 250 feet high. Construction has started. The three routes to Spokane from Kalispell at present are all circuitous; one south to Missoula and then northwest to Coeur d'Alene and Spokane, another northwest to Bonnets Ferry and then south, and the third southwest and then north- west to Sandpoint and then south. The new short cut will tako the motorist down the west side of Flathead Lake and then al- most due west to Spokane.
