Suspended student returns to class By RON CAUHVELL Staff Writnr The suspension of a Grade student at Eric Rivers School in Milk River has bei overturned by the County Warner schools committee. The student was suspend) indefinitely on Thursday, fi the second time since Novell bcr, for a technical violation a county rule which prohibi students from driving the cars during the noor hour. The student involved drov his car from the front of th school to an adjoining sk street to have a smoke. Tlie issue was the subject the first ever full meeting i the County of Warner school committee and the Milk Rive school board held Monda night in Warner. The two-hour public meetin was followed by a closed ses sion Involving the two group of school authorities at whic time the decision was made t reinstate the student. However, the decision state that the student could return t classes today on the conditio that he come by bus and dis play a "proper attitude." Th fitudent lives in Coutts, a dis tance of 13 miles. Erie Rivers principal Jim Anderson told the meeting tha tlie rule is a difficult one to en force but officials toy to ad minister it fairly. He said he ordered the sus pension after the student die not heed a warning to leave the car at home after he hat been caught driving it at noon "I told him to take the car home and leave it saic Mr. Anderson. "But he continued to bring 1! to school." The student's parents told the meeting that their son was act- ing on orders from them to re- turn to school with their car. They said they made the de- cision after clrecking with the RCMP and the mayor of Milk River and learning there was no reason their car could not be on the streets of Milk River. A meeting of the school board was requested by the principal on Thursday to dis- cuss the situation. School board members told last night's meet- Ing that they were left with the impression that Mr. Anderson did not plan any action until after the Monday night session. However, one Milk River school board member said the student was suspended less than 10 minutes after the meet- ing with the principal. ules aflcr we left the school 3 he said. "I couldn't believe he ha been suspended." During last night's clos< meeting, the two hoards dec! ed that the suspension ord was not justified under the ci cumstances. Mr. Anderson had told th meeting earlier that other si dents have violated the regul, tion but this was the first tim a student has been suspendec The board felt it would be u fair to impose such strict me, sures on one student while a lowing others to continue th practice.

The complaints which he for- warded to the regional UIC of- fice in Calgary were, for the most part, looked after and set- tled immediately. Asked whether those people experiencing payment delays who contacted their MPs were ;iven priority over others by UIC officials, Mr. Guadlock could not give an accurate es- timation other than stating that the complaints lie levied were usually quickly resolved. However, he said, some UIC employees had to get their "knuckles rapped." Mr. Gundlock cited an exam- ple of a couple who had gone chequeless for some time. When tlie Calgary UIC office was contacted on various occa- sions, officials said the cheque was in the mail. When the money did not ar- rive, the MP applied other channels and the cheque was in the mail the next day. The number of suffer- ing payn.ont delays were esti- mated to be JO times the nor- mal rate or about 20 per cent, by Mr. Gundlock.
