Drive Ph. 328-77S1 Education is in trouble says teachers executive By JIM WILSON Herald Education Writer Today's education system is in trouble because it is a patchwork attempt "trying to make the damn thing work," 1,300 southern Alberta teachers were told Thursday. Norman Goble, secretary- general of the Canadian Teachers' Federation and keynote speaker for the annual Southwestern Alberta Teachers' Association convention, said that the more important the educational decision is, the deeper the irrationality becomes. Teachers and students, he said, are "dangling on a chain of circumstances" created by the historic mythology of the education system, which in turn is based on the social system developed many years ago and no longer completely in effect. Hospital mill rate setting awaits word on grants By JIM MAYBIE Herald Staff Writer Lethbridge and district taxpayers should have an idea next month of what hospital operations are going to cost them through the mill rate. . The Lethbridge Municip a 1 Hospital board was told Thursday night that by the end of this month the provincial government will be announcing the amount of grants it will be giving hospitals in the province this year. The board's budget committee is to meet in closed session March 8 to discuss the grants and go over the final budget. Then on the 16th the board is scheduled to meet the hospital's auditor to go over the 1970 financial picture. It is expected that at the meeting on the 16th the board will discuss the amount contributing municipalities will be requisitioned for the 1970 deficit and for 1971 operations. Last year's deficit is expected to be minor - in the $10,000 to $15,000 range. In recent months hospital requisitions for Lethbridge and district municipalities has been estimated as high as $750,000.

Health Minister James Henderson reaffirmed that Lethbridge is rated high in consideration for one of three pilot projects in the province where all health services and operations will fall under one board. The LMH board denied a request from the Gait School of Nursing requesting a relaxation of residence rules. GSN asked that visiting privileges at the residence be extended for a two - month trial basis. It was suggested that visitors be allowed to visit Wednesdays from 6 p.m. to midnight; Fridays and Saturdays from noon to 2 a.m.; and Sundays from noon to midnight. There now is limited opening for male visitors in certain areas of the residence but the board was unanimous in its decision to keep regulations as they are "in the best interests of the girls." The GSN cited other hospitals in the province where residences are more open for visitors. Administrator Andy Andrea-chuk reported average occu-pancy at the hospital last month was 89.3 per cent compared with 84.8 per cent a year ago, a remarkable occupancy rate for an active treatment hospital. Patient days totalled 5,315 compared with 5,048 a year ago. Operating room visits of 328 compares with 274 a year ago. The hospital had expenditures of $240,486 and revenues of $237,323 for a $3,163 deficit. Officials to meet Aalborg to talk sewage financing A meeting has been set for Tuesday between city officials and Provincial Treasurer A. O. Aalborg to discuss financing arrangements for funds needed to pay for secondary sewage treatment facilities. The figure, once $1,355,000, has now been revised to about $1,360,000, according to City Manager Tom Nutting. Mr. Nutting said one possibility which may be explored at the meeting is a "shared program" whereby the city would obtain about half the amount from Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation and the rest through some other type of loan from either the COMPLETE CARPET AND LINOLEUM INSTALLATION HAMILTON'S FLOOR COVERING LTD. 909 3rd Ave. S.

Mr. Nutting was pessimistic about obtaining all the funds from the CMHC allocation to the province for pollution con-trol. He said only $3 million had been set aside for Alberta this year out of a total of $85 million for all of Canada. The city's needs would come to almost half the entire available funds for the province. Mayor Andy Anderson, Mr. Nutting and Allister Findlay, finance director, are to attend Tuesday's meeting. Winter returns Contrary to previous forecasts, all indications now are that winter has returned. The snow and colder, more seasonal temperatures, are being caused by an overunning low pressure area which upon contact with colder air results in the unsettled weather. Since the colder weather arrived Lethbridge has received 3.2 inches of snow, water equivalent of .26 of an inch. Skies will be cloudy today and tomorrow and the snow it likely to fall continuously. Tern peratures during the day should climb to around the 25 above, dropping to near five above overnight. Winds will be from the north at 20 m.p.h. The high and low tempera tures Thursday were 37 and 21 above respectively. The record temperatures for Feb. 26 are 61 above set in 1907 and 30 below set in 1947. TONIGHT and SATURDAY ...

PHONE 328-7756 PHONE 328-7756 for RESERVATIONS The result, he said, is that "a lot of the things we do today in education would be called irrational if they were presented to us as new ideas today, instead of being the habitual ways of doing things." Mr. Goble said every society has a basic mythology which guides its members in "the best" ways to live and to learn. Today's society is finding many of its myths to be obsolete due to changes in other social forces, and "as mythology changes, so must the ways the same things are taught in the schools." Otherwise, he said, education fails because it is old-fashioned. The vocabulary used in public and in schools to describe the social mythology must a'so change with the times in order to be understandable, Mr. Goble said, so a teacher's vocabulary in the classroom must also be up-to-date. Confrontation between students and their teachers arises when the teachers continue to teach the out-of-date myths using the out-of-date vocabulary, Mr. Goble said, and "the tragedy is that in our conflict and confrontation we are searching for the same thing - whatever it is that remains constant in the state of man." Men tend to construct their schools and educaiton systems as models of an idealized version of the existing world-one with no flaws or imperfections where perfect people live. Then the education system tries to implant in the students a mythology based on this ideal world, in an attempt to make the ideal become real. But when the ideals change, so must the mythology. Mr. Goble said education systems are designed to maintain a particular power system, by placing people in the proper niche in life and giving them the proper attitudes. When the power structure and governing group change, and the authority leaks away from the ruler to the ruled - as with today's emphasis on participatory decision - making - then a new power system must evolve before society becomes stable again. In the interval there is confrontation. Since this philosophy suggests that man can be perfected through educational training, the power structure designs an education system to create perfect men for the sys tern, as the group in power defines them. And social efficiency has today become "a moral imperative measured in terms of in dustrial output." Since there has been doubt cast on this "moral imperative," society has been in turmoil, and education systems have been waiting to see what the new power structure will be. Lifelong education has become necessary, and re-education for new jobs when the old job becomes obsolete or nonexistent. Today's students also know more about what is happening in the world than do their teachers, due to modern communications technology, so that a teacher's knowledge is rapidly becoming obsolescent. Schools are being called on by their students to become more human, and less oriented to turning out a compliant product for an industrial nitch. However, since there is as yet no new social order, teachers are being called upon for the first time to "define the intrinsic values and goals for the educational process," Mr. Goble said. And instead of grasping at the first new mythology that comes along - individual instruction systems, classroom freedom - teachers should carefully look at all possible alternatives. Media man Stanley Burke illustrates talk to teachers Communications system said major cause of unrest Today's speaking - oriented communications system is the major cause of social unrest and the resultant educational confrontation, says Stanley Burke, former CBC-TV news broadcaster Mr. Burke, now co-ordinator Attempted arson charge laid by police John Van Den Hengel, 29 of Lethbridge, was arrested by city police this morning, and charged with attempted break and entering and attempted arson. The incident took place late Thursday night at the Star Lite Motel in Lethbridge. The motel manager said the front desk of the motel was extensively damaged by the fire and there is some smoke damage to the premises. The Lethbridge fire department extinguished the blaze.

University in Toronto was banquet speaker for 1,300 teachers attending the Southwestern Alberta Teachers' Association annual convention. He said the human mind is moulded by the means used in communication, as well as by the words communicated. Drawing on writings of Dr. Harold Innes, Mr. Burke said man's use ot communication in warfare presents an illustrative example of the importance of various' communications systems. Early man, using only the spoken word to order his life and his warfare "fought and killed in bunches." Orders from commanders were confused or lost in the noise of battle, and "life was lived in a circular, rather undefined system." Later, writing was developed and battles became more ordered. The concept of straight lines extended into battles, and long lines of soldiers clashed on a controlled basis. Commanders could communicate through the printed word. Mr. Burke said the ancient Greeks developed the battle phalanx - line on line of disciplined soldiers - primarily because of written communications, and life from then on was guided by an ordered, "square" framework. Communication was one-way in both cases, resulting in unquestioning obedience to the commander. Today, however, radio and television have fostered a return to the spoken word and made talking back instantly possible. The soldier on the battlefield or the pilot in a jet or bomber can see exactly what is happening in the war, and tell his commander the orders are wrong or are going to be ineffectual. People are also killed in bunches, and the disorganized social system of the early men has returned because everyone can talk readily with everyone else. Life has again become circular and uncontrolled. Canada, Mr. Burke said, was born in the 19th century and Fire victim identified, inquest set The badly burned body of a man discovered by the Lethbridge firefighters when they responded to a fire call early Thursday morning at the Marshall Auto Wreckers Ltd. yard, 308 Second St. S., has been identified as George Call i n g st Jr. of Cardston. He was 41. Identification was made by checking the dead man's finger prints. A part of the police report referring to the site of the death, stated the "area is often used by transients and others who sleep in the various wrecked vehicles there." A coroner's inquest has been set for March 16 at 9 a.m. of multi-media studies at York, "we are fighting desperately to TT-'------"- '- ~ -�' perpetuate a 19th century print- ing press structure where the whole world is divided up into neat squares." But changing circumstances in the world are removing the borders around the squares and confusion is resulting. He said a major educational force is so far untapped in Can ada, and one Lethbridge could conceivably develop is a "community seminar system," based on communication via cable vision. In this way all of the people in the community could be polled regularly concerning what they wanted Canada to become, and how they wanted Canadian nationalism to be defined. The decision - making process would then be from the bottom up instead of from the top - Parliament - down. Woman injured Rebecca Wurtz of Magrath was injured when a car she was riding in slid into a ditch and overturned early Thursday morning three miles south of Lethbridge on Highway 5. She was taken to St. Michael's General Hospital, treated for cuts to the head, and was released. The driver of the car, Jacob Waldner, also of Magrath was not injured. RCMP officials believe the accident resulted from bad road conditions. The damage to Waldner's vehicle was estimated to be $1,000. flCUFF BLACK, Certified Denial Mechanic BLACK DENTAL LAB lower Level MEDICAL DENTAL BLDO.
