At the present time, Grades S to 12 are accommodated ai Catholic Central High School. Considerable public pressure has been brought to bear on the board recently to move Grades 7, 8 and 9 into a separate build- ing of their own. A five-m ember delegation from Catholic Central appear- ed before Wednesday night's board meeting and expressed unanimous support for keeping junior and senior high school students in the same building. Stan Sawicki, principal ol Catholic Central, said it would be physically impossible to completely segregate the ju- nior and senior students. "If you want to create a sit- uation where these two stu- dent groups don't come into contact at all during the school day, then I would say it is im- he said. Much of the concern that has )een expressed by parent groups has revolved around the Idea that the senior high school 777 students are a bad influence on the younger students. Louis Burke, head of the English department at Catholic Central, said most of the stu- said, "For the present, it is fruitless for us to talk about any separate building for Grades 7, 8 and 9." He said the public school sys- dents restrict their social con-; km didn't start a Junior high tacts to others in their own age I school until there were abou group which limits the students in the system, of influence one group has on with more expected. another.

"We have good consultation between teachers all along the line, better continuity and greater instruction e f f o r t be- everyone is he said. The present setup allows the school to have extra equlpmen and several department heads which neither group could have if they were separated, because neither student population would then be large enough. "We have a better educa ional setup now. If we revert ed back again there could be a deterioration in Mr Baske said. Trustee E. S. Vasdenak, who has led the charge for separate quarters for junior high schoo students, maintained his stand against integration of the two groups. "I think Grades 7, 8 and 9 are at a point of development where they should not be with older he said. "These children need special care and attention.

Board chairman, John Boras said, "This is not something you close the door on, but for the present time, I think we have done what we can. "For various reasons, we are stud: with OK system as it is today and personally, I see nothing wrong with it. Integra- ton is the coming thing. There been too much specialize tion and there is a move away from it." However, the board.did not rule out further dialogue on the matter. It was decided the discussion will again be on the agenda at the next board meeting and supporters of segregation will lave another opportunity to voice their opinions.

This would in- crease the provincial hog kill by one thud. Meetings were held with Medicine Hat city council and Federal Agriculture Minister Bud Olson and with the Bow Island town officials to find a suitable location. A meeting sponsored by the Town of Taber and the princi- pals of the proposal has been set for the Taber Community Centre auditorium Jan. 21 at 2 p.m. All hog producers and feed grain producers are asked to attend this meeting to deter- mine the feasibility of estab- lishing the plant in Taber. Availability of raw product and necessary service facilities for such a huge operation will be the key to the meeting. Federal government partici: patlon in the scheme will be limited to a regional economic development grant, if and when an application is receiv- ed. Under the rules of the. region al grant, a location must be selected for the Industry be- fore an application for money can be forwarded to the gov eminent. The firm has not de- cided on a location. Kent Jesperson, special as sistant to Mr. Olson, said any firm must give a complete study to government for con sideration of grant money. Included in the study is pro- duct marketability, financia capability, job creation powers and ability of the area to sup- port the industry, both with fa dlities and services as well as with raw product. Mr. Olson told The Herald In an interview following a public meeting In Raymond that the grant availability to the princi- pals of (he hog slaughtering and processing industry woulc hinge on the source of the raw He said if the company will use hogs from farmers already established in the area then some consideration would be given. He said there would be no grant if the company is going to oversupply the hog market. Apparently all the bogs will be processed for export to the Pacific Rim countries, specifi- cally Japan.

However, since several stu- dents who have registered un- der PEP have gone into the regular programs, it is impos- sible to estimate the actual stu- dent enrolment at this time, said registrar Al Blakey.

The breeder said it was hii impression that the Alberta de- partment of agriculture has en- tered the picture. Apparently the ADA has told the princi- pals that the size of the Doggery will be limited. Also, the principals can't dic- tate to the farmers the type or breed of hog to be grown for processing at the proposed plant. Apparently the principals are to process hogs which are rat- ed in the top 12 to 15 per cent for carcass cutability. In order to do this, they would be inclined to ask for breeding stock from a selected group. The indexing system of grad- ing hogs seems to be the bug in the ointment concerning the Alberta Hog Producers Market- ing Board. Apparently it has to have proof from the slaughter house and will not allow the electronic probe to be used for determining carcass cutability. The marketing board will meet at a special meeting Jan. 17 to discuss the ramifications of the proposal. An official of the Alberta de- partment of agriculture said the company is interested in settling in southern Alberta but that nothing has been confirm- ed. He said UK Taber meeting in For public information and to determine the public reaction to the proposal, Principals of the plant wouU have to gain the sanction of the iroviDcial agricultural minis- w, Dr. Hugh Homer, u well as the Alberta Hog Producers Marketing Board.
