In its brief the committee recommended that in the ele- mentary and junior high schools greater emphasis be placed on the basic skills of language arts, mathematics and citizenship. Specific rec- ommendations for each subject area were made. The committee further rec- ommended that excessive rep- etition be avoided. A third recommendation was that counselling be given more attention both in regards to vo- cational and personal guidance especially at the Grade 9 level.

BLAIRMORE (CNP Bureau) Heavy snow removal equip- ment is being used in Crows- nest Pass towns to widen streets and lanes and Highway 3. These have been narrowed due to heavy piling of anow along the sides of roads. Most streets here have more than a foot of hard-packed snow. Snow fell almost every day for more than six weeks and strong east and west winds, which alternated every second day, created deep drifts. There is almost five feet of snow on the level in most areas in the district and much heav- ier amounts in the mountains. Flood possibility is foremost in the thoughts of most town foremen in the district. Flood coverage insurance was dropped after the Winni- peg flood several years ago. If several Chinooks hit the area before spring rains the snows will become packed and lessen flood danger. The Crowsnest river chan- nel through Blairmore was dredged and lowered last year, Lyons Creek through central Blairmore has created flooding problems in other years when spring rains sent the creek on the rampage. Mackosey will speak BLAIRMORE (CNP Bureau) Bryce Mackasey, minister of manpower and former minister of labor, will visit the Crows- nest Pass for a series of meet- ings Feb. 11. Mr. Mackasey will address a public meeting at the Elks Hall at Blairmore that evening. Earlier be will meet with lo- cal union officials, representa- tives of industries in the 'Pass and Liberal supporters la the area.
