A top Alberta hospital administrative executive and provincial judge has thrown his support behind on-the-job nursing training at hospitals as compared with university education. Alberta Chief Judge Nelles V. Buchanan said in Lethbridge, that hospital-trained nurses may be superior to university-educated nurses. Judge Buchanan was featured speaker at the southern Alberta regional conference of the Alberta Hospital Association. Hospitals which employ only hospital-trained nurses are not, in his opinion, contravening the provincial human rights act. Alberta hospitals employ 95 per cent of this province's nurses, giving them the right to ( dies rather than hospitals," set their own hiring standards. "There's no discrimination there . . . just a matter of judgement." Judge Buchanan, while a proponent of in-hospital training, says, the program will inevitably lose out to the university education system. The only thing the two-year university nursing degree system has over the three-year hospital training program is "status." He said university academics, who imply the degree is better than a hospital diploma, conduct most studies on 'nurs' ing education systems.

That's what the weatherman says. And the temperatures are going to be staying on the low side for a few days at least. The lousy weather is due to a low pressure area in Montana. It's moving eastward and a ridge of high pressure from the arctic is slipping in behind it. That'll mean cooler weather in southern Alberta for a few days. Sunday's overnight low was �14 degrees above zero. It was scheduled to slip all day reaching a bottom of 10 to 15 below tonight. The mercury is scheduled to hover around zero to five above Tuesday and for the following day or so. The 10 to 15 below tonight isn't too bad compared with the 1956 record low of 30 below. However, it's slightly cooler than last year's 47 above and the 1925 record of 55 above. By 5 a.m. the city had eight-tenths of an inch of snow dumped on it. Another inch of snow had dropped by 9 a.m. Precipitation was scheduled to end tonight.
