Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 22, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THI inHitlOCI HMAIO Mondoy, Nbnmry M, Riverbottom plan gets look tonight Several long-awaited items are on the agenda for tonight s meeting of city council. Among them is a set of six resolutions from the parks and recreation commission con- cerning the river valley report done last summer by a con- sultant for the commission. There has been pressure on council and tne Municipal Planning Commis- sion in recent weeks for deci- sions regarding tourist accom- modation developments in tne valley, but these have been de- layed until the report was fully studied. The parks and recreation commission's resolutions in- clude approval in principle of the general land use proposals in the river valley study and a recommendation that council initiate appropriate zoning. No areas are specified. The commission has also ap- proved the schedule of develop- ment recommended in the re- port and asks that council pro- ceed with implementation, in eluding the necessary land ac quisition. It also asks that because o the threat of erosion all vehi cles be restricted to roads ani designated areas. If carried out, this would control motor bike activity in the rive valley. A governing or advisory body for overseeing develop- ment of the river valley is als suggested. The commissio would also like to see consider ation given to burying all power hues in .the riverbottom Matters related to several bylaws are also to be acted o tonight. The city's sewerag service .charge bylaw is up fo third and final reading. Th has been delayed in order i give local industries time propose amendments. Aldermen will also deal wi a motion by Alderman Jo Balla that the section of th proposed new fire bylaw r lating to fireworks be deletet Aid. Balla said last week h felt this section should be take out entirely and children allowed to "have some fun .The bylaw is still undergoin revisions and has not yet bee presented for approval. Another bylaw could possil repealed tonight. At the in- gation of Deputy Mayor Rex ttle, council has before it a law to repeal the original ;law created the Eco- imk Development Commis- on. AW. Little has recom- ended.that a task force ap- roach be used instead. Each development task ould be handled by a specific loup of resource persons from le community. The commis- on would no longer be need- d to advise council on policy alters. The move would not affect director of economic de- elopment, Dennis O'Connell. A plan of subdivision and a ew bouse numbering concept or the west side is also on the genda. The plan was ap- roved.by the MPC Wednes- ay. Approval and registration the subdivision plan is part f the preparation for the move o the west side expected to alee place this fall. Problems usually associated with finding addresses in areas vith contour planning are ex- Dected to bo largely solved by he new house numbering plan. t imposes a grid system over he crescents and curved treets. Each house' number will have eight digits, plus a street name. Density standards on Mayor Magrath Drive may be in for revision. Up for first reading an amendment to the zoning >ylaw to double density stand- ards in C-8 commercial zones If passed, the change would open the way for approval for :wo proposed motels on the Drive. Also before council will be a motion from Aid. Jim Ander son that the number of alder men be reduced to seven from the present nine members, change could be made in Oc tober, when all aldermen are up for re-election. The land sales committee is to recommend that Interna tional Distillers Canada Ltd. be given an extension to April 1 on then- option on a land par eel in the industrial park. Th land is the site of a propose distillery, the building of whic may depend on the compan receiving an incentives gran from the federal governn competition urged for Alberta education EDMONTON Co-operative a'-titudes should replace com- petitive attitudes in Alberta's educational future, the Worth coromisaon on educational planning pest secondary edu- cation task force was ;old here Friday. Dr. A. M. Mardiros, a Uni- versity of Alberta professor representing one faculty re- sponse on a panel analyzing the task force interim pro- posals, said the existing edu- cation system fosters de- humanization through an em- phasis on competition. The task force was remiss, he said, in not considerng in more detail how educational institutions could function in a spirit of co-operation, doing away with such things as grades and evaluations, "which are barriers between teachers and students." He said there is another form of competition creating educa- tional dehumanization, within the faculty itself, "in which we look at each other and give each othar personal marks reward and punishment." Students are also starting to evaluate professors through the student gnpevine and through "anticalendars" which assess the professor for tte next year's students. Dr. Mardiros said there has also been another negative de- velopment at the post secon- dary level not dealt with by the task force, ;nvolving uni- versity versus other insti- tutional competition. "There is a snobbishness at- tached to a university educa- tion which gets in the way of many students entering other institutions which offer pro- grams better suited to the stu- dents' he said. In implementation of the task force proposal for more equality of educational oppor- tunity, he said, "perhaps the first step would be to abolish university degrees, to make the output cf colleges, univer- and technical schools more equal." I He said the task force needed to deal more thoroughly with means of implementing post- secondary education change, since as the system exists now, there "are many academic prejudices to be overcome, and many internal, autonomous bodies, and many departments which have built their own em- pires they must now protect." He was critical of (he task force proposal for more institu- lions multi universities, techni universities and com- muniversities. Money would be better spent on building community theatres, gal- leries, teaching museums and development of educational films and television. An open university in which eva-yone interested could take part through television, as is now being done in England, should also be given more priority, Dr. Mardiros said. Dr Henry Anderson, presi- dent of the Alberta Association of College AdminMratcrs and president of Grande Prairie College, said that as the ad ministrators' representative on the reaction panel, he was con- cerned about both the mount- ing bureaucracy visualized by the task force interim pro- posals and by the increased centralization and resultant likelihood of decreased local administrative autonomy. He said the proposals seemed to call for liiiiiUJig individual- ity by subverting the person and institution to the higher good cf education, while at the same time calling for more concern for individuality. ATA banquet location is changed The Southwest Alberta Teachers' Association annual convention banquet, originally set for the Kalaidarts Building at the Exhibition Grounds has reen moved to the Exhibition Pavilion. The banquet, starting at p.m. this Thursday has former CBC newsman Stanley Burke as featured speaker. A large number of tickets is now available to the public as well as to teachers, and can be acquired by telephoning Lake- view Elementary School at 328- 4532. The two-day convention runs Thursday and Friday, and about teachers from throughout south ern Alberta are expected to attend. School students will be given a holiday both days.

Boards consider school-community plan The public and separate school boards are to be ap- proached this week for appro- val of an integrated school- community recreation and arts program for the conring sum- mer. The program would-see the involvement, for the first time, of school facilities and school- SIMPSONS SEARS Solves Hot Water Problems appointed staff, with agency] programs which have been in existence in past years. The boards will consider the project Tuesday at a joint board meeting.. They will be asked for approval and finan- cial assistance. The project is the outcome of recent meetings by a com- mittee representing the schools and boards and such agencies as the YMCA, YVVCA, city parks and recreation depart- ment, Allied Arts Council, city cultural development depart- ment, department of youth, home and school council and the University of Lethbridge and Lethbridge Community College. If the boards favor the idea, the committee will then ap- proach the provincial innova- tive advisory board, a govern- ment-appointed body respon- sible for alloting a million fund set up last year for new school programs. Plans are also to contact city council for finances. The committee has ten- tatively selected Gilbert Pater- son Junior High School, Cath- olic Central High School and Wilson Junior High School for involvement in the project. The schools would be made available as community cen- tres for the 10 weeks when school is not in session, June 10 to Aug. 20. The integrated program would see, possibly, the three schools offer their own pro- grams, and the agencies giving parts of their programs in the schools also. However, if agen- cies wish to continue in their present facilities, they would be under no pressure to move their programs into the schools. Finances would be needed for the salaries of an over-all project director, snd three co- ordinators appointed by the schools. Tentative plans sug- gest the paid leaders will work part-time. The project director would oversee the entire school-com- munity program. Responsible to him would be the HHxrdina- tors of tie school programs and co-ordinators appointed by the various agencies. Still to be ironect out by the committee are a job descrip- tion for the project director, a survey of needs of the commu- nities near the ttiree schools and final budget requirements. Non-Canadian influence committee extends deadlines tor submissions The deadline for briefs to the Committee of Inquiry into Non- Canadian Influence in Alberta Post-Secondary Education, has been postponed to March 1. The opening of hearings, to begin in Calgary, has been postponed to March 8. The date for the Lethbridge hearing is not immediately available. Arnold F. Moir, QC, of Ed- monton, chairman of the com-1 mittce, said an enthusiastic re- sponse to the call for briefs and submissions led to the post- ponements. In the course of preparing de- tailed guidelines for research, says Mr. Moir, the committee found the whole subject of non- Canadian influence is very com- plex, particularly in education.

We think citizenship must be stud- ied, but it is only one part of the really important issue, which is the involvement of our universities in helping to solve the problems of Canada and Al- berta, i "It would be a real pity if j anyone saw our study as being in'some sense anti American. What the committee is con- cerned with is the effect upon our universities and colleges of having a considerable number of non-Canadians in that sys-1 tern. This is why we are going to be asking for tola about de- partments, not individual pro- fessors. We have a positive out- look: we're interested in what must be done in order t' allow faculty members to make more concrete contribution to I the community." Initial reaction of the univer- sities to requests for informa- tion has been, said Mr. Moir. "From our initial discussions, the universities seem quite ready lo provide the committee with reasonable data provided it protects Hie identity of indi- viduals." The work of the committee is proceeding along three fronts. The first is independent search being carried out by the research staff of the commit- tee. Among other things, this includes a study of how other countries regulate the citizen- ship of staff and the nature of teaching materials. The second thrust of the com- mittee is work by the Sub-Com- mittee on Canadian Content in Teaching, asking students how they perceive the whole "Cana- dian content" issue, the rele- vance of courses and textbooks, and the interes's of the faculty. The sub-committee will also study the number of courses presently offered in the univer- sities and colleges with a speci- fically Canadian focus. Dr. Richard Baird, University of Alberta political scientist and chairman of the Sub-Committee said: "Naturally we don't think every course offered by the University can or should have a Canadian content. A course in physics is pretty much the same regardless of where you teach it. But in addition to look- ing at the Canadian orientation of courses in the humanities (like English and history) and the social sciences (like sociol- ogy and political science) we are also looking at some of the applied sciences like engineer- ing. Some of them offer abun- dant opportunities for study of specifically Canadian problems like permafrost." The third thrust of the com- mittee's study will be the pub- lic hearings, at which both academic and lay people will have an opportunity to discuss' these questions and make rep- resentations.
