In elementary grades 'Crying need' here for more school counsellors FAITH HEALER? Two cranes point the way to the top of the Jesus Christ of Latter- day Saints Stake Centre steeple at 28th St. and Scenic Drive. The pre-cast concrete struc- ture was repaired this week after the connection between the main tower and the top section was found to be faulty. _______________-Ed Finlay Photo Meeting proposed to clarify slaughter plant deal By RON CALDWELIj Staff Writer There is a crying need for elementary school counsellors n the Lethbridge public school system. At the present time, the sys- em employs only one counsel- or on a half-time basis. Peter Calmer, school psychologist, says ideally there should be one counsellor in each of the 10 elementary schools in the pub- ic 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 torn each school. Two experts in the field o! elementary counselling were brought in from Calgary spe- cifically for the seminar. School board officials tape that, in this way, the need for more counselling will be at least partially filled until enough money is available to hire full-time counsellors. "It is all a question of eco- said Brucie Gall, di- rector of school services. "Money is the stumbling block anil that is why we don't have enough counsellors." Mr. Palmer said the need for counsellors in elementary schools is more critical than in any olher 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. "H kids had counselling in schools, they pro- ably wouldn't need it by the time they reached junior and senior high he said.

An Oxford scholar who reads Chinese and Japanese, Dr. Swann has been director of the museum, which houses the most complete collection of The principals of the proposed million hog slaughter- ing project have been extended an 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 the hoard that he plant; 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 Ire offered on die 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.

SONY LLOYDS DUAL NORESCO future of mil passenger ser- 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 sen-ice 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, lie 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.

Frank Smith, manager of the Travel and Convention Asso- ciation of Southern Alberta has written to Highways Minister pression of support for idea Clarence Copitliorne asking that the government officially recognize historic names for these two routes on mails and road signs. Whoop-Up Trail is Highway 4 from Lethbridgc to Contts. Highway 2 from Fort. Maclcod to Calgary is the historic Mac- lcod Trail. Mr. Bawling hesitated about pressing for the name change, because he said it cost "thou- sands of dollars" when the road signs at -la.sjx'r were changed 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 cx- by people in communities all along the routes.

Mr. Spicer predicted the 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.

Mr. Palmer said the years between Grades 1 to 0 are thn time when habits are learned and ingrained for life: It is in this 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, all students would receive ben- efits from having a counsellor in the school. Lloyd Flaig, vice-principal ot 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 begir. 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 their youngster doesn't have any "friends, but to the children, this is a major problem that could have life-long adverse ef- fects. A counsellor, he said, who eet to this type of prob- lem soon enough, can usually correct it.
