The French language program for kindergarten and Grade 1 pupils, made possible by a 1974 grant, has com- menced. The school board has receiv- ed an Local Initiatives Program grant to upgrade playgrounds at Kimberley's elementary schools. School trustees have ex- pressed doubt the French program is being used to the best advantage. They say the lessons are too short and too infrequent. Under the present plan, two aides will visit each class once a week for 15 minutes. The previous twice a week schedule was scrapped because of rising costs. Trustees say a 15 minute lesson is an inefficient way of teaching a subject. However, once the program is established, they hope itcan be expanded to higher grades in succeeding years. Work on the playground must start by Feb. 3. The LIP grant will be used to hire five people to build adventure playground equipment. The board will subsidize the program by as much as a week. Material costs are not covered by the grant and the school board is encouraging parents to gather materials that can be used. Farmers and Ranchers FENCE POSTS FOR SALE and 8' Lengths. Sizes.

(CP) A 25 year old instructor at Red Deer College, Ed Kamps, was nominated by acclama- tion Wednesday night to con- test the Lacombe con- stituency for the NDP party in the next provincial election. He said the security of raw materials is essential to the operation of the company. Canbra sells its finished product taking into considera- tion the price it pays for its raw materials. When the com- pany buys raw materials, it has got to know it will receive them at the price agreed up- on, he said. Marlin Moore of Calgary, who represented Mr. Huether, said after the judgment that during the slow rapeseed season of 1975 farmers were caught. "The companies were able to capitalize on the rapidly es- calating world market in he said. The farmers sold top early and the companies capitalized on the world market situation.

In other business, the MD council was authorized under the department of environ- ment to reclaim a former coal loading site in the southeast part of the village of Grassy Lake, as recommended by the reclamation council. The council was given until March 31 to remove the debris and coal slag with their own or hired equipment. However, due to the winter season, the MD is asking for an extension of the cleaning period. Because of its heavy agen- da, and the many delegates and delegations, the agenda was not completed and the meeting will continue at 10 a.m. Monday.
