Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 22, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Thursday, February 22, 1973 SCHOOL COUNCILS Students, teachers and parents working together Two Lethbridge schools are currently investigating the proposition of school councils -Lethbridge CoKegiate Institute ami Fleetwood - Bawden elementary. At LCI an intex-im council of six students, six parents, two teachers and principal Ken Sauer is looking into possible guidelines for the establishment of a regular school council. The school has had a parent advisory group for a number of y./ars. The unofficial "school council" has been meeting on the guidelines since December. Dr. 0. P. Larson, superintendent of public schools, outlined his views in conjunction with the Worth Report recommendations on School councils to the Fleetwood-Bawden Home and School Association last week. California has had such success with school councils, he said, that there is a move in that state to extend the system to municipal government, creating councils to assist and advise municipal councils. The province of Quebec has passed legislation to create school councils, primarily on an advisory basis, he said. A school council co\ild act as an advisory group or it could be delegated certain authority, Mr. Larson said. A council would give everyone a chance to dialogue on school policy decisions. A school council could consider:  School regulations regarding attendance and discipline, the tone of the school;  Dress regulations:  General operation of the school such as recess practices or breaks;  Extra - curricular activities such as dances:  Planning and organization of further education activities such as Fleetwood - Bawden's equestrian program tried for tfoj first time last year;  Whether school objectives are being achieved with recommendations for improvement. What powers the council would have would depend on legislation and the type of council which the parents, school and school board decide to establish. The Home and School Association was told that if it wanted to experiment with a "school council" the public school board would consider setting a policy to permit something along this line. Parents and teachers at Fleetwood - Bawden split into groups to discuss the proposal. Views varied widely. Some felt immediate steps should be taken to look into the proposal, others felt it would mean the end of the Home and School Association or that it was redundant. The members decided to wait until provincial legislation is established before considering the matter further. There are indications, however, that the matter of a school council will again be brought up at the next Home and School meeting. Education minister likes council idea Herald Legislature Bureau EDMONTON - Education Minister Lou Hyndman says he considers a Worth Report Country singing team show their friendly side By GARRY ALLISON There's a saying that states, "country people is good people." And people, country or otherwise, don't come any friendlier than Loretta Lyrm and Conway Twitty. In Lethbridge for a 2%-hour country music show Wednesday night at the Exhibition Pavilion, Loretta and Conway sent the capacity audience home fully satisfied. It's hard to believe that Loretta, a bundle of southern charm and energy, is a grandmother four times over. She married "Mooney" Lynn at the tender af,e of 14 and they now have six children, including twins, as well as the grandchildren. "The worst part of this business is leaving the kids at home," the country music entertainer of the year said. "It's terrible. When possible I like to take them with me." Her Kentucky inuring town accent flows smoothly as she bubbles forth on any subject INSURANCE  LIABILITY  BONDS  AUTO  FIRE ROSSITER AGENCIES LTD. ESTABtlSHED 1911 lower Fleer 517 4th Ave. $. � Phone 327-1541 from Vietnam to rodeos to President Richard Nixon. "I did a show for the United Appeal and President and Mrs. Nixon were in attendance. I told the audience what I thought of the war, which wasn't good. I told them my feelings though, as I was firmly against it." "Mr. Nixon had to leave early, before my little speech. So I told Mrs. Nixon to be sure and pass my feelings on to Richard. "They buzzed for 10 minutes about me calling the president Richard. I told one man when he asked me why I did it, that 'we call Christ by His first name, don't we?'" Born a Baptist and now a member of the Church of Christ, Loretta talks easily of Christ and you can sense her true feelings in the religious songs she sings. "We have the oldest house in Tennessee," she stated proudly. "We have restored it exactly like it was. It comes complete with a slave pit. The home is built along the lines of the famous Andrew Jackson home. "We not only bought the house but the whole town as well, 2,600 acres, complete with a general store." Antiques, dolls and salt and pepper shakers fill the Lynn home. "It's like a junk pile at times with all .those antiques," she laughed. Loretta and Conway first combined their talents during a tour of England and Europe and they have since reached the top of their field, being voted the country music duet of the year. Conway, unlike Loretta, was unwilling to speak about his family Hfe. "I keep my life private. I put a family picture in a souvenir program recently and some screwball started threatening mine and my daughter's Hfe. I don't need that, so they're private." Harold Jenkins and Conway Twitty are one in the same. "I combined the towns of Conway, Arkansas, and Twitty, Texas, and hoped it would catch a disc jockey's eye." His wish came true. He explained that while a gimmick like that may work, it only helps to a point. "Once they play your record, if you don't have the talent to back it up, all the gimmicks in the world aren't going to help." Now one of the top performers in the business Conway Twitty does not like being referred to as a star. "I love what I'm doing but I'm just an ordinary person. I fish, I hunt, I enjoy my family -just like anyone else," he stated. "In this business you have to remember you are a normal person, if you let it go to your head that's when the booze and the pills take over. Just like everyone else, I put my pants on one leg at a time." Conway has starred in three movies. THE JEAN JUNGLE CENTRE VILLAGE MALL WAREHOUSE DOOR BUSTER SPECIAL FRIDAY 3:00-4:00 P.M.

NOW ONLY MANY OTHER UNADVERTISED SPECIALS DURING OUR WAREHOUSE SALE recommendation for more parental involvement in schools an "extremely interesting proposal." The $440,000 commission on education planning report completed last year recommended "school councils" consisting of parents and other members of the communiry act as advisory committees in local school decision-making. Mr. Hyndman said in an interview that he and Jim Foster, mbsteter of advanced education will make their views on the Worth Report known during the current sitting of the legislature. He then intends to sit down with representatives of the Alberta School Trustees Association arid the Alberta Teachers association and discuss specifics in the Worth Report, he said. Legislation needed to implement parts of the report on the future of education in Alberta could come at the fall siting of the legislature, said the education minister. A change in the law might be required to give school boards the authority to appoint the proposed school councils. Mr. Hyndman said there are a number of things to iron out before accepting the school council idea. He said it must bo decided whether the advisory councils would take away some of the responsibility now handled by school boards and home and school associations or would take on separate new functions. There is a danger that the councils could become "another layer of bureaucracy," said Mr. Hyndman.

ARMSTRONG, M.D. Canadian Heart Foundation High blood pressure is often described as a "silent" killer because it has no characteristic symptoms and many people have it without being aware of the fact. It can also be described as a "mysterious" killer because, for more than 90 percent of people with high blood pressure, the cause and the cure are still unknown. Why is one person's blood pressure higher than another's? Why is it more prevalent among women than men? It may take years of research to answer these and other questions still baffling medical science. Meanwhile, awareness, early detection and treatment are the best medicines. A routine checkup can be the first step toward early detection and toward averting a heart attack or stroke - often the serious end-results of high blood pressure. The Canadian Heart Foundation estimates that nearly 2 million Canadians have high blood pressure and probably more more than half of them don't know it. Of those who do, most aren't being treated adequately. This emphasizes the need for more research to find the underlying causes of high bloood pressure. What has science learned so far?  The causes for 9 out of 10 cases of high blood pressure are still unknown.  High blood pressure is a major contributor to stroke, heart attack and kidney failure.  High blood pressure occurs more frequently in women than men and it is more common among low income groups than the afflluent.  High blood pressure can be detected by a simple test. Once diagnosed, it can be treated by your doctor. Treatment of even moderate hypertension can reduce the risk of stroke and heart and kidney failure.  Too much salt in the daily diet can cause blood pressure to rise.  Overweight, fatigue and undue stress can contribute to elevated blood pressure.  A man whose blood pressure is over 150 has twice the risk of heart attack and four times the risk of stroke as one whose blood pressure is under 120. In addition, the death rate from high blood pressure in Canada in persons under 65 has been reduced by 79 percent since 1950. Despite this progress, much more time and money will be required to solve the remaining problems. Research funds come from the annual Heart Fund in February.

The association last met in MPC approves hardware The Municipal Planning Commission Wednesday approved the construction of a hardware store at 2020 Mayor Magrath Drive. The matter had been tabled two weeks ago pending the results of a discussion between the city and the developer of property adjacent to the bard-ware store site. During the previous MPC meeting, it had been suggested the deve'ooer had rot met certain conditions set down by the MPC, such as access to a parking lot and provision of on-site storm drainage facilities. A spokesman for the city said the developer has since agreed to comply with the conditions. The hardware store, to be built for Thunderbird Stores Ltd., will be in a 12,000 square-foot building. The approval had attached a list of 12 conditions including the waiver of some on-site parking requirements. Lethbridge in 1952 and since then has rotated between Edmonton and Calgary and the Jasper and Banff national parks, Mr. Comstock says. Dr. Charyk of COMSAT obtained a bachelor of science degree from the University of Alberta then went on for masters and PhD degrees from the California Institute of Technology. He has since received an honorary degree from the University of A2berta. Prior to joining COMSAT in 1963, he was chief scientist for the U.S. Air Force, assistant secretary of the air force for research and development, and under secretary of the air force.
