About 150 Albertan teachers, education administrators, stu- dents and laymen attended the one day seminar, including about 15 from Lethbridge. The interim proposals includ- ed statements on curricula, ad- ministration, education finance, types of institutions, general aims of education and other topics. Mike Edwares, a University of Alberta student representing the student viewpoint in a four- member reaction panel, ex- pressed general agreement with the task force report, but said it didn't go far enough in sev- eral areas. He said it fell short of what was required in relevance of the general curriculum avail- able, in ways to humanize the Proposals 'short-sighted' says family court judge EDMONTON Edmonton Family Court Judge M. M. Bowker roundly castigated the interim proposals of the Worth Commission on educational planning post secondary edu- cation task force as "too gen- eral" and "short-sighted." Mrs. Bowker said the report also restates problems already stated, and contains "too many 'we favors' and not enough solid recommendations." "To me the problems seem serious enough to call for noth- ing short of revolutionary change and the total revamp- ing of higher she said, "yet Hie report seems to suggest a catch-up job and a Band-Aid treatment is all that is needed." She said students today seem to be badly disillusioned by the education system and the train- ing and knowledge they re- ceive, particularly at Alberta universities. "Yet the whole system is pushing young people into the universities, and as we know many fail and drop out. But are.they really failures, or is it the system that has failed them? "In any case, they are lost to society. "But even worse are the stu- dents who get the grades and come out disillusioned and cyn- ical about what they have re- ceived, and they too are lost to Mrs. Bowker said. She observed that the report "seems strangely focussed on universities and not enough 01 other and saic she thought colleges and tech nical schools "are likely to have a far greater effect on the future of Alberta" than uni versities. She said this was one ex ample of the snob appeal o university education: "We're too preoccumed with pape. (degree) qualifications." The interim proposals als need more consideration o new scholarship and financ systems, new teaching anu learning techniques and new types of facilities, Mrs. Bowke said. "The great movement now Is the demand by students t shape their own individua learning programs, with fa culty help, and working m self initiated projects using th world as their laboratory, ing out of the classroom an into the world to test theory against reality." She said the bulk of the it terim proposals were peripher- al to the real issue of "helping the students to think, and giving them satisfaction in learning." "I don't know how we can plan higher education in Al- berta without taking into ac- count the development of com- puters, the electronic educa- tion media, implications of the shorter working week and working He in the future, the fact that jobs after graduation are not plentiful and this will continue, the impact on educa- tional finance of the current she said. Wide review set three reports EDMONTON The three! ask force reports on aspects f Alberta's education to the ear 2005 will be renewed by six outside educationists as well as in provincial seminars, says "Dr. Walter Worth, commission- r on educational planning. The three reports, on post- secondary education, nursery chool to Grade 12 and lifelong continuing education, are cur- ently being discussed at one- lay seminars in Ednronton and Calgary. Dr. Worth told The Herald he commission has asked four Canadians and two Americans to add their advice to that pro- duced by the seminars: Claude Beauregard, director- B e n e 1 of college education vith the Quebec department of education; Romeo also a Quebec education lead- er; Dr. Milton Fenske, direc- or of administrative services for the Alberta colleges com- mission; Dr. John B. MacDonald, ex- ecutive director of the Commit- :ee of Presidents of Universi- ties of Ontario; Dr. Clark Kerr, chairman of the Carnegie Com- mission on Higher Education, at Berkeley, Calif.; and Dr William C. Shannon, acting ex- ecutive director of the Ameri- can Association of Junior Col- leges, in Washington, D.C. The seminar studying the post-secondary education task force interim report met Feb. 19, the nursery school to kinder- garten group will meet Feb. 27 and the lifelong education group will meet March 4. All include about 150 Alber- tan teachers, education admini- strators, students and laymen. The three task forces will discuss recommendations grow- ing from the seminar sessions, incorporating many of them into their final reports later this spring. Dr. Worth said he expects to make his final report in spring of 1972, and hopes it will be published in a sufficiently in- expensive volume that it is available to all Alberfans. Potatoes shipped to Japan Alberta Canning Co. Ltd. of Lethbridge, recently exported 150 tons of processed frencn fried potatoes to Japan, and are now negotiating for a sec- ond similar sized shipment. Gccrge Manak, sales man- ager for the company said the market holds great potential, and the recent shipment "bare- ly scratched the surface." He said the completion of more sales on the Japanese market will mean much to southern Alberta potato farm- ers.

IS THE WHEEL CHAIR IN GOOD WORKING ORDER Just as any other mechanical device needs lo be taken care of, so does that wheel chair. For if it is neglected it will not give good service.

"Relevance comes from study of the social problems, from education for survival, educa- tion for change and education directed towards the individu- he said. Yet the report suggests com- plex bureaucratic developments for educational administration, which hardly mention the inter- nal organization and responsive- ness of the individual institu- tions, he said. Size and lack of student in- volvement in decision making are problems resulting in de- humanization of education, and since the institutions are ex- pected to continue as they are into the 1980s, "we must have a plan of action immediately if our present facilities are to see us through." I He said lifestyle, educational concepts and even exteriors of buildings must be considered in the humanization, and said a quotation used in the task force report was an illustration of the problem: "The school is an old, dark, brick, two storey contraption built as if learning and virtue needed a stronghold, a place of turrets and parapets, with nar- row slits in the bricks through which scholars with crossbows peen out at an atomic world." Mr. Edwards said the report does not concern itself suffici- ently with how to make Mener education accessible to ethnic minorities, to disadvantaged mi- norities or to women, who, lack- ing day-care facilities are tied to the home and restricted from furthering then- educations. Finance too is a student con- cern considered insufficiently by the report, Mr. Edwards said. Student assistance, student housing, housng for married undergraduate students and re- lated student expenses need re- view, he said. And faculty tenure is too ex- pensive a luxury to continue in the future. One of the most important areas, not touched at all in the task force report, he said, is the job market available to the stu- dent graduate. "There must be some kind of evaulation of the supply and de- mand for students after gradu- Mr. Edwards said. "If we expect students to make full use of our education system we must make it fully known what jobs are going to be available for graduates, planning courses in terms of output needs of the society." Danger: lake ice is rotten Lethbridge city police this morning issued a warning to all children and parents of the city to stay off the ice at Hen- derson Lake.

"All the planes are in the experimental category and the more an individual puts nto the plane the more experi- mental the plane becomes.

He said aviation has long been one of his wants but he had never pursued it. "I've had many hobbies over the years but this is the closest to the ideal one." He said the real interest build up in the spectator an- gle has been great. "Many peo- ple have enquired about the pro- gress of the plane although they have no intention of building one.
