The Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 25, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta U-THE LETNBRIDQE HIRALD-Frtday, January Information teams plan school tour The University of Lethbridge, in an effort to increase dialogue with high school students, will send three four-member informa- tion teams to city high schools beginning Feb. 12 The project is part of a U of L program to give Southern Alberta high school students an opportunity to inquire about educational oppor- tunities, facilities and courses at the university. Teams will consist of a representative from the U of L student body and ad- ministration, as well as representatives from the arts and science and education faculties. First stop is Lethbridge Collegiate Institute. A team will meet with students at 11 a.m. A second four-member team will visit students at Winston Churchill High School at a.m. Feb 15, and the last school to be visited will be Catholic Central High School at 9 a.m. Feb. 27. AMA policing of physicians will continue Effluent test will use trout Pupils' performance deteriorated, so The Lethbridge sewage treatment plant is one of four in as many Alberta cities which will be used by the provincial department of the environment to test effluent by the use of rainbow trout. Akio Masuda, said trout will also be used to test effluent in Calgary, Red Deer and Medicine Hat. Effluent from the city of Edmonton has been tested and found highly toxic to the trout, he said. Further tests now are being conducted to determine the cause of the high toxicity. However, said Mr. Masuda, the Edmonton results are no cause for alarm because the effluent would be diluted about 50 times in the North Saskatchewan River and the city meets all environment department standards. The tests, which involve placing the trout in varying concentrations of effluent, are valuable as a tool to study pollution effects not directly related to existing standards, he said. Spelling classes back Pupils' poor spelling and resulting concern on the part of teachers and parents have caused spelling classes to be reintroduced at one Lethbridge school. Spelling was included in language arts programs at Westminster School, but vice- principal Ken Fisher says poor pupil performance and a poor attitude to spelling resulted. Having spelling lessons alternate with others in language arts classes did not emphasize their impor- tance, he says. Language arts teacher Barb Jensen says spelling dis- appeared from Westminster School's curriculum as a separate course for a year, causing pupils' spelling to deteriorate.

Spelling has noticeably im- proved since the classes were introduced in the fall, say the teachers. "The school of thought that they can learn spelling 'naturally' by doing their work and learning by cor- recting their mistakes just doesn't says Mr. Fisher. Spelling as a subject grew out of a five-year curriculum redesign project operated un- der an Educational Oppor- tunities Fund grant. Mrs. Jensen says language arts, mathematics, art and social studies curricula have been revised so far.

Insp. Bill West says it is less dangerous to walk on the icy sidewalks than to risk falling in front of a car on an icy street. He warns that police may start charging offenders if the practise continues. process of revision. Science and music remain to be revised. The decision to revise the spelling aspect of language arts was made ir the spring of 1973, says Mrs. Jensen, and several alternatives were con- sidered. They ranged from drilled progress through a tex- tbook to a complete individual program for each child. It would be costly and time- consuming to design a com- plete spelling course, or assemble the best parts of several existing programs, so a text was purchased and the course somewhat modified. The chosen text presents words according to the skills needed to spell them cor- rectly. Previous texts presented words dealing with a particular topic in each lesson. Materials were purchased to teach spelling at any level from Grade 2 to Grade 7. Westminister School has Grades 4, 5 and 6, and pupils can thus be taught at the level appropriate to their skill, which is determined by stan- dard tests. The spelling program has been started in some classes already and will be in use throughout the school by the fall. If the course proves un- satisfactory in the 1974-75 school year a new spelling curriculum will be designed. Oil reservoir They struck oil this week at the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute but they don't have the luxury of a pipeline to transport it from source to destination so they're making do with this Hugh garbage container. The oil was discovered accumulating at the bottom of the school's elevator shaft as a result of a leak in the elevator's oil lift. The elevator is expected to be out of service for about'two weeks. I Bellevue sewer system will cost The Alberta Medical Association will continue to police all Alberta physicians until at least next fall. While the associaton voted in September to give member doctors the right to "opt out" of policing arrangements, the motion is stalled at the executive level. "Professional is a system that regulates such medical items as the ef- ficiency and volume of ser- vices a doctor renders to the public. A member of the AMA board of directors said in a telephone interview the board has not ratified the motion by physicians, to be allowed to "opt because of a lack of time and a question of legalities. He explained the lawyer for the association is not yet sure if it would be legal to adopt the policy which passed in closed session by a vote of 32 to 27. Because the professional review committee of the AMA is empowered to obtain infor- mation from all licensed physicians in the province, the resolution affects the whole profession. The eight-member com- mittee scruitinizes several hundred profiles every three months to determine why some doctors' practices are out of the ordinary. The cost-quality review "is a professional responsibility carried out by the AMA as delegated by the Alberta Health Care Insurance former AMA president Dr. James Oshiro of Coaldale has said. Because .cost-quality control of physicians is the responsibility of the associa- tion in Alberta, enactment of the motion would mean the profession would be left without scrutiny over services including billing practices and work load. Because of this, physicians were warned in the closed ses- sion of the annual meeting someone else would take over the role. Executive director, Dr. Robert Clark, told the meeting if physicians profiles were not reviewed by the committee they would be by "someone else" and this might take away someiwotec- tion from "harrassment" the physicians now have. A large number of the profiles found abnormal by the health care commission computer are dismissed by the committee but this might not occur if they are not seen by the committee, he ex- plained. Outside the meeting a direc- tor told The Herald a govern- ment committee could likely take the role of watchdog over the profession This, he added, would remove some of the profession's right to govern itself a right the association has always defended. Another director said an educational project of "some sort" may now have to be un- dertaken to inform physicians of the exact purpose and func- tion of professional review. 1 Crowsnest Pass Bureau BELLEVUE The village of Bellevue has received its permit to construct a sewer system at an estimated cost of Tenders are being called by Strong, Lamb and Nelson of Calgary, the village's engineering firm. It is expected work will begin in early spring. The project was approved last fall following a ministerial order ordering the town to install the ser- vice. It is expected there will be more than 400 hook- ups in the system. It will be mandatory all residences and business must hook into the system. The cost exceeds by the original estimates, made last year. The Oldman River Regional Planning Commission is preparing a minimum property standards bylaw for the village, which, when implemented will allow citizens with an income of or less to qualify for a government grant of up to to improve the condi- tion of their property. Citizens will also qualify for borrowing additional funds up to at low interest rates for greater ex- pansion and improvement of their property.

The meetings will be held Tuesday in the Civic Sports Centre. Hockey and basketball groups will meet at 2 p.m. in the all-purpose room of the centre with thor-.e interested in handball, squash and racket ball meeting at p.m. in Gym 2. All others will have a chance to air their views at p.m. in the all-purpose room. Bob Bartlett, chairman of the Games management com- mittee told The Herald the meetings are being held to give the public a chance to view the facilities that will be available for their favorite sport and "how various groups in the community can use it." "We are trying to give the public a chance, before the final design stages are put to tender, to discuss said Mr. Bartlett. The public will be able to influence what happens in the final stages, he said. MKE mm.

PINCHER CREEK (HNS) The energy issue has benefitted Canada and has opened the way for other issues that will make major changes in the economy of Alberta, a member of Parliament told the Pincher Creek-Crowsnest Provincial Progressive Conservative Association Thursday. Joe Clark, MP for Rocky Mountain House, was the guest speaker at the association's annual meeting. Mr. Clark said he feels there is a very real chance for the expansion of the coal in- dustry. Gasification of coal could make it a competing fuel with petroleum products, he said. Tom Oakley, speaking for a Lundbreck delegation, said his group would meet with Clarence Copithorne, minister of highways and transport, to protest a new section of road the provincial government is planning south of Burmis to Lee Lake. They would like to see a road south of Lundbreck which would create a circular route to the area. The association approved a motion to support the group. Fred Bradley, a young Progressive Conservative from Blairmore, was elected new president of the association. Ron Zikiwsky was chosen vice-president. Frank Wood and John Jackson were reappointed as secretary and treasurer. A resolution changed the number of directors from eight to 12, and the executive was empowered to add to that number during the year, in- suring that all areas be represented on the board.
