At the present time, the sys- tem employs only one counsel- lor on a half-time basis. Peter Palmer, school psychologist, says ideally there should be one counsellor hi each of the 10 elementary schools in the pub- lic system. In an effort to improve the present counselling service, the school board held a seminar recently for all elementary principals and a staff member from each school. Two experts in the field of elementary counselling were brought in from Calgary spe- cifically for the seminar. School board officials hope that, in this way, the need for more counselling least partially enough money is will be at filled until available to hire full-time counsellors. "It is all a question of eco- said Bmcie Gall, di- rector of school services. "Money is the stumbling block and that is why we don't have enough counsellors." Mr. Palmer said the need for counsellorsin elementary schools is more critical than in any other area of the school system. He said the principle of fill- ing junior and senior high schools with counsellors while ignoring elementary schools is completely backwards. "If kids had counselling In elementary schools, they pro- ably wouldn't need, it by the time they reached junior and senior high he said. "It is much easier to work Culture of China lecture subject The principals of the proposed million hog slaughter- ing project have been extended invitation to meet with the Alberta Hog Producers Market- ig Board to begin earnest ne- gotiations toward establishment of the plant.

Mr. Smith said a sincere in- vitation has been extended to Mr. Ricafort to attend a spe- cial meeting of the board in Edmonton Feb. 11 or 12. "We are hopeful that he will meet with us at this said Mr. Smith. In the letter dated Feb. 1, Mr. Smith told Mr. Ricafort that the negotiations must come in the following order: the board of finan- cial capabilities to establish the plant; the board that lie has and can maintain the ex- port market for the product and by product of the hogs he pro- poses to contract from the pro- ducers and that none of the product will be offered on the domestic market. Mr. Smith said in the letter that the third step is, "we will then study your proposed con- tract, negotiate on the contract and negotiate on other details necessary to make your pro- posed project become a real- ity." In another letter mailed Feb. 3, Mr. Smith said the proposed project means much to the farmers of southern Alberta. "There is no one in the asrea or in the province who is more anxious for this project to be- come a said Mr. Smith. By JOE MA Staff Writer Dr. Peter Swann, director of the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto, last night gave an one-hour lecture on The Cul- of China to.a mixed au- dience of about 100 at the Uni- versity of Lethbridge. Illustrating the lecture with scores of color and black-and- white slides, Dr. Swann traced to the beginning of written Chi- nese history some years ago and gave a dynasty-by- dynasty account of the devel- opment of Chinese culture up to the last Manchu dynasty. An Oxford scholar who reads Chinese and Japanese, Dr. Swann has been director of the museum, which nouses the most complete collection of Mail roof caves in A portion of the roof at the Westminster Shopping Mall in North Lethbridge caved in this morning, apparently from the weight of snow which had ac cumilated on the roof.

Future bleak for rail passenger service By GREG McINTYRE Staff Writer CALGARY The western region vice-president of Cana- dian National Railways has painted a dismal picture of the LEROY'S PLUMBING AND GASFITTING Phone 328-8403 LEROY ERLENDSON Anglo Distributors SERVICE CENTRE 419 5th Street South Phone 328-6922 NOW OPEN Government Licensed Technician Repairs to Radios, Televisions and Tape Recorders. SONY LLOYDS DUAL NORESCO future of rail passenger scar- vice to small communities. Speaking to a major tourist conference sponsored by the Alberta government here, J. H. Spicer said future develop- ments in rail service will focus on high-speed passenger runs within and between large pop- ulation centres. The three busiest runs, and the ones Mr. Spicer said will receive major attention by train companies in the future are, in order of size: Montreal- Toronto, Ottawa-Toronto and Edmonton-Calgary. "Even railroads in the Uni- ted States, with 12 times our population have bemoaned the loss of passenger he said. "The future of rail service will be between major centres up to 300 miles apart." All passenger service is un- economic today and particu- larly service to small com- munities, he said. CP Rail has recently discon- tinued its passenger service between Lethbridge and Cal- gary and CNR has applied to the Canadian Transport Com- mission to discontinue service between Jasper and Prince Rupert in B.C. "However, under terms of Dowling likes Whoop-Up CALGARY (Staff) -Bob Dowling, Alberta minister re- sponsible for tourism says he hies the names Whoop-Up Trail and Macleod Trail, but the department of highways ROOFING C A SHEET METAL LTD. 1709 2 Ave. Ph. 328-5973 will have to decide whether money will be spent to put the names on highway signs. Frank Smith, manager of the Travel and Convention Asso- ciation of Southern Alberta has written to Highways Minister Clarence Copithorae asking that the government officially recognize historic names for road signs. Whoop-Up Trail is Highway 4 from Lethbridge to Courts. Highway 2 from P'ort Macleod to Calgary is tiie historic Mac- leod Trail. Mr. Dowling hesitated about pressing for the name change, because he said it cost "thou- sands of dollars" when the road signs at Jasper were changed to bilingual wording. Doug Evans, director of the Alberta Government Travel Bureau said to have the gov- ernment support an official name change on Highways 2 and 4 would take a solid ex- pression of support for the idea by people in communities all along the routes. Mr. Evans said Alberta al- ready has a large number of name highways: the Macken zie, Calgary-Edmonton Trail, Dinosaur Trail, Trans-Canada and the Yellowhead. BACK TO NORMAL Time Airways has resumed its normal flying schedule fol- lowing settlement of the air traffic controllers' strike, a spokesman said today. inter the National Transportation Act of 1967, railways are en- titled to receive from the pub- lic purse up to 80 per cent of the loss incurred. in operating an uneconomic service that is required in the public est." Mr. Spicer predicted fee fed- eral government will continue to subsidize losses in the fu- ture on passenger runs across Canada because the service is in the public interest. Railway companies must ap- ply for "abandonment" of the uneconomic service, before the transport commission will rule that the service is deserving of subsidy.

He said the best after-Tang dynasty collec- tion is housed at the National Museum on Taiwan. Two interesting observations he made were the scholar- statesman system of China and the powerful depth of Chinese culture which absorbed the in- vading Mongols and Manchus into the Chinese nation. Because of time limit, Dr. Swann said he could not cover out problems at an early age." Mr. Palmer said the years between Grades 1 to 6 are time when habits are learned and ingrained for life- It is in this period that children could get the most value from coun- selling. Mr. Palmer said pressure from principals and teachers for more elementary counsel- lors is "at an all-time high." "There is a far greater de- mand now for elementary counselling services than there ever was in the he said. Counsellors would not only work with specific children, he said, but with teachers and parents as well, In this way, ail students would receive ben- efits from having a counsellor in the school. Lloyd Flaig, vice-principal of Elementary School, where the only elemen- tary counsellor in the system is located, said the need for ele- mentary counselling has al- ways been there but it is just now coming to be recognized. "Elementary school is where problems begiii to he said. "Once the students get into high school, the problems are difficult to correct. Hesaid adults tend to be- little the problems of young children. "They seem to be small prob- lems to adults, but to children, they are as big as any adult problem." He said parents may not think it is important that tiieir youngster doesn't have any friends, but to the children, this is a major problem that could have life-long adverse ef- fects. the impact Chinese furniture and textiles had over the west. He dealt at length with paint- ing and poetry. A counsellor, he said, who can get to this type of prob- lem soon enough, can usually correct it.
