LDS families accept the stu- dents without remuneration ex- cept family allowance. The stu- dents' parents assist where possible. The church has two full-time case social workers in south- ern Alberta, Ethel Griffin and Tadt. Local church lead- ers also provide counselling services. Few serious social problems have been encounter- ed in the six years the pr'o- gram has operated in this area, according to church offi- cials. The student and his family are interviewed in the process of selecting for the program. Consideration is given to the scholastic ability and social at- titude of the student to avoid serious difficulty in integration into the larger school system and living with the foster fam- ily. Some LDS families have two students, usually from the same family, but in most have just one. One important qualification for a family to be eligible for receiving a student is that there be children in the home of a similar age to that of the Indian student. In addition to the 200 stu- dents who arrived in Leth- bridge to go to homes in the area from Lethbridge, Medi- cine Hat, to Coutts, to Car'd- ston, some 200 Indian students arrived in Calgary this week for placement in homes in the Calgary, Red Deer and Ed- monton areas.
