The two films, titled "Film and "Dawning" were producec by the Alberta department education at a total cost and have been th source of love-hate argument ever since they were firs made public. "Film" show's the drug seen as it is, spotlighting a popula Alberta rock group called Ev eryman's Tonto. The langu _ used is the language of youth and the attitudes expressed arc frank and pointed. The film ne- ither moralizes against noi supports use of drugs. "Dawning" is aimed at a somewhat younger audience and presents some of the prob lems faced by junior higl school students, which can turn them to use of drugs. The prob- lems may include keeping up with their friends, or the rec ognition of how seemingly lit tie they can do to overcome the problems and general mess today's world faces. Beth films are in color and last about 30 minutes. More than 25 parents, school counsellors, students and other people attended the screening, and were asked by school board chairman Bill Brown and district director of schoo] services Bob Gall for their comments, some of which fol- low: Al Brewer, from the Alberta department of youth: "Film" will likely displease about 70 per cent of the people who watch it is an accurate reflection of the drug-oriented sub-culture ROBERT D.KINNIBURGHD.D.S.

A counsel lor: "Dawning" says "this is the world you adults have gotten us and goes on from there to illus- trate how students may be pushed into drug use. Ruth Daw, a teacher: "Film" showed why students keep us- ing drugs but didn't "hit the core" of the dnig problem. "Dawning" had no relevance to the drug situation at all. "The only solution to the drug prob- lem is to let the students make up their own minds, not to push an outside opinion onto them." A parent: "Film" didn't say anything except Ojat all young people have long hair and once in awhile talk about "chloroform on film." "Dawn- ing" was really directed at par- ents and was a good film. "And I don't think kids today should worry about the social prob- lems of the world." (This was a reference to "Dawning's" ex- planation of why students turn to drugs.) Cliff Black, a parent: "Drugs present us with a moral, spiri- tual, social, physical, ethical, medical and family problem such as we have never had be- fore, and before we can attack problem on any of these levels we must know what we're talking about on all of them. But I think both films bu useful if they were presented in a careful fashion." Trustee Doug Card: The films didn't entertain, but they i weren't intended to entertain. They were designed to elicit that's what our students discussion, and they're done panics. Factors outside the manu- facturing industries will also have a bearing on future de- velopment, he said, noting that two proposed hotels in the city would create close to 400 jobs. He also forecast "exciting developments" in other service industries because of the rc- sm'gence of coal mining in the Crowsnesl Pass. There would probably be increased whole- sale trade, for example, to serve the 'Pass in the next few. years, he said. The future also holds in store of the and lives they would like to have It is is the qualitative aspect of growth that must be con sidered, he said quantity alone is not enough. He said he felt Letbbridgi had an outstanding, if no umque, opportunity to develo] into a fine community. and parents should EEC them. Trustee Dr. Doug McPher- son: The films should have de- livered more of a message. But drug education has to be a two- way street. Parents have lo show less hysteria in discuss- ing drugs, "but they've been given a great deal of misinfor- mation." Their children must "show some charity" in deal- ing with their parents. Students know more about drugs than do their parents.

These two films are useful be- cause they would show the kids that the adults are not afraid to talk sensibly about drugs, and would open up that conversation. Trustee Alastair Mont: The films would be useful, but I hope they will have a previous discussion with the students, by a trained counsellor before [hey are shown we have to be sure the wrong people don't show them, without explaining what their purpose is.

Mr. O'Connell rei t e r ated what he said was a point that bore repeating that Leth- bridge must identify its goals as a community. Development in itself was not necessarily desirable, he said, but must be used to generate the means whereby the citi- zens can achieve the kind of Giiircli choir to repeat tormance A performance last Sunday of selections from Handel's Messiah by the Southminster Church Senior Choir will be repeated this Sunday because of strong popular demand. The Handel works will be sung at Southminster in place of Bach's Christmas Oratorio, originally scheduled for Dec. 20.

The office will offer consul- tant services to schools and school districts requesting them, working with teachers individually and in groups. The regional office special- ists might also become in- volved in local school district evaluations if the districts' re- j quested this form of assistance.
