By GEOFF TAGG Special Correspondent FOREMOST - Superintendent of schools Cliff Elle spoke to a recent meeting of the County of 40-Mile school committee on assistance from outside agencies. Mr. Elle said that steps had been taken recently to obtain as much help as possible from government agencies outside the county. The Alberta Guidance Clinic, centred at Medicine Hat, is in the p r o c e s s of expanding its services which previously concentrated on intelligence quotient testings. After meeting with their administrator, Mr. Benning, it was discovered they had a special education consultant. Three students at a county school were selected. They were of average intelligence but for one reason or another were experiencing learning problems. County guidance counsellor Eileen Jones was able to test the IQ of these students and obtain other pertinent information about them. A reading consultant also tested them thoroughly in the field of reading. The information was sent to the guidance clinic at Medicine Hat. A date was set for the special education consultant and a social worker from the guidance clinic to meet with the teachers, guidance counsellor and superintendent of schools. Several concrete proposals resulted for both teachers and parents. Mr. Elle stated that such co- j operation between local personnel and those from the guidance clinic enabled the parties concerned to get to the root of some of these learning problems. The Medicine Hat Health Unit is eager to be of assistance. It continues to provide medical services s u c h as vaccinations, eye and ear examinations. It is showing an increasing interest in the child before he starts school. After finding out the county's policy regarding beginning students, a meeting was set up in Medicine Hat between health unit officials, the superintendent of schools and other specialists. As a result of these discussions, the interest of the health unit in the child's progress in school came to light. They are currently undertaking a- program of testing with preschool children to determine their readiness for school. The speech therapist is working with beginners who show indications of speech problems. The concern is not so much to provide information that will say a student is not ready for school but rather to provide information which will indicate to the teacher where the student is weak and where he might require additional help. The guidance clinic and the health unit are but two examples of outside agencies which can be of considerable assistance to schools. Mr. Elle concluded, "As far as I am concerned, the teacher is the most important person in the school learning sit-utation but he must have an attitude whereby he will accept ideas and suggestions from other professionals. The costs to us are nil, other than a little co-operation." Some people should not drink Maybe you think you're drinking too much. Maybe it's beginning to worry you. Maybe it's worrying your family and friends, too. If so, what do you do? Where do you go? Your first and immediate step should be to seek the advice of your doctor. Tell him the truth. He won't be shocked and he won't let you feel embarrassed. And the advice he'll give you will be based on the collective experience of the medical profession and his own intimate knowledge of you. He'll probably start out by giving you some straight, down-to-earth facts about alcohol and alcoholism - two entirely different subjects. He may tell you, for example, that about 95% of people who drink beer or wine or spirits do so moderately. But for the remaining 5%, unfortunately, the story is completely different. This group, he may point out, includes the immoderate drinkers, the abusive drinkers and the outright alcoholics. He'll probably explain that, for some reason as yet unknown to medical science, people in this group are not always able to control the amount or extent of their consumption of alcohol. Your doctor may also explain that alcoholism is not a behavioral defect. Alcoholism is a disease. And persistent, immoderate drinking is a symptom of this disease. Scientists specializing in the study of alcoholism are virtually unanimous that just as the use of sugar, itself, is not the cause of sugar diabetes; the use of alcohol, itself, is not the cause of alcoholism. And even though scientists throughout the world continue their search and research, the unfortunate fact remains that, so far, no one knows for sure what causes the disease of alcoholism. In your own particular case, your doctor will work with you in trying to determine why you are drinking too much. Once he fully understands the nature and extent of your problem, he may simply recommend greater' moderation in your drinking. Or he may tell you that you should not drink at all - neither beer nor wine nor spirits -because, in this context, there can be no distinction made between them. We don't want to sound preachy, but we do ask you to seriously consider this advice: If the question of drinking is becoming a matter of concern, we who are distillers and vintners say: "Talk it. over with your doctor.
