Friday, December 10, 197! THE IETHBR1DGE HERALD 29 Parents issue ultimatum in school strike Craters appear on Mars CAl-GAHY Parents in one of seven school districts v.'hcre teachers arc on strike have toid the .sides to get the instructors hack in the classrooms by the si art of next week. At a meeting of 500 Wednesday, it was resolved if classes are not resumed by then, th? Hanna school board um u s t break away from the Bow Valley School Authorities Association." The association was formed by the seven rural districts to bargain on a unified basis with the teachers, who arc represented by the Alberta Teachers' Association. The 813 teachers went on strike Nov. 2fl to back wage increases that average per cent. About students were effected. HYNDMAN 1NKOHMED Social Credit MLA Keith French said at the request of the parents he informed Education Minister Lou Hyndman of the meeting and asked whether Hanna can settle separately. The resolution Irom the meeting said Ilanna "has nothing in common with the other towns." "We have good teachers and we have good trustees we don't intend to fight or humiliate our teachers or our trustees. "We want our children back at school." Art Broomhall of the Alberta School Trustees the Labor Act will not allow the Ilanna Board to separate while a strike is in progress. "It's a rather useless exercise. Parents can make this statement, sure, but they've done it without knowing what Lhe law stipulates." William Casanova of the Teachers association said "the ATA will sign any agreement bet w e e n local teachers and their board, as long as the local teachers are satisfied." Parties concerned could challenge the legality but "that wouldn't be us." CIRCULATE PETITIONS Meanwhile, in the Three Hills school division and the County of Wheatland parents have petitions urging trustees not to give in lo the wage demands. The pelition says rather than accept an unfavorable settlement, students should be supplied with correspondence courses for the remainder of the year. Some of the teachers have been without contracts for 15 months and have settled almost all points in contention except for wages and whether the school boards will pay half the Alberta health care insurance premiums. Under the old contracts, a teacher with 10 years experience and a bachelor degree in education would earn about a year. Teachers two and three years experience had maximums of and Teachers receive strike pay ol S16 or depending on dependents, and the school board have saved about S15.000 a day in wages. Other areas effected are the County of Mountain View, Drumhollcr school division and local boards in Banff and (Renter) Photo-graphs of Mars have revealed earth-like sand dunes, many craters and traces of glacial activity, the Soviet newspaper Trud reports. The craters range from small ones just 400 vards across up to giant1 depressions 500 miles in diameter. The paper does not make clear whether the findings are based entirely on photographs taken bv the Soviet Mars 2 and 3 satellites, or whether the United States Mariner 9 contributed. American scientists have been passing data on their experiment to Soviet colleagues since Mariner 9 went into orbit around Mars in 2 began circling the planet Nov. 27 and Mars 3 live days later. Mars 3 landed a capsule on Mars which briefly sent back television pictures before it suddenly went dead. Trud says satellite pictures of Mars have revealed three types of terrain: cratered, unbroken, and chaotic. Most o( the surface was covered with craters. Unlike moon craters, their edges were smoother and they stood out less from the surrounding landscape. The chaotic regions gave the appearance of landslides. So far only one unbroken area had been photographed, the Hal-las Desert, which appears from earth as an almost-round, or cd patch miles across, Not a single crater had been traced on it. "On some pictures of Mars, sand dunes can be seen, oriented in the direction of the prevailing winds; on other photographs traces of glacial influence are Trud says. by dogs CALGARY (CP) Al Bour-assa, a farmer on the city's outskirts who had 17 of lu's 43 hogs killed a few weeks ago, said Thursday examinations showed the animals were mauled by dogs.
