The Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 29, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta II THE LBTHlRIDaE HERALD TitMday, January M, 1174 Open classroom debate continues WINNIPEG (CP) The de- bate continues over the suc- cess of the open classroom concept in elementary schools. A number of Manitoba school principals expressed their views in recent inter- views, with those in favor out- numbering the dissenters. Harry Robertson, principal of Shaughnessy Park School and an educationist for 39 years, has adopted parts of the concept but he retains a trepidation for all-out free- dom. "Up to the age of 12 or 13 children need he said. "They are not ready to de- cide what programs they are going to take or whether they are going to give up a lan- guage or social studies and so on. "I think we're still living in a highly structured society. You nave to be at work at a certain time, you have to obey rules where you work, and here you go giving children a great deal more freedom and then they go out into a struc- tured society." SPREAD OUT More and more elementary schools in Winnipeg now are entering the open classroom era: allowing students to spread out on the floor in study groups or in individual study, but supervised over-all by a teacher or teachers. Evelyn Cox, principal of Lord Roberts School, likes the increased freedom given the children. She said it instills In and out The Womens Auxiliary to the Hospital Auxiliary will hold the annual February tea on Feb. 27 in the auxiliary Hospital lounge. Everyone welcome. independence, teaches the children to think for them- selves and make their own decisions. Miss Cox said the open areas have allowed classes to be divided according to the levels oi the children. "In Grade 5 you might have children reading at Grade 3 or 4 levels and others reading at 7, 8 or 9 levels. "You can't take them all to- gether. This way, the ones at the top are being stretched and the people who need help and skills are getting it." SEE CHANGES Ivan Biblow, principal oi King Edward School, said philosophies and attitudes have changed dramatically in recent years. "At King Edward most of the classroom doors are open. You'll find children in the hallways and on the floor in various nooks and crannies. "This is the kind of thing that leads to openness in edu- cation. We are trying to break down some of the structures and some of the restrictions." Mr. Biblow said if the chil- dren are given the opportun- ity, they can assume a fair amount of independence and responsibility and so can the teachers. "The teacher has changed from being the source of all learning to the facilitator of all learning." Ernestine Fenny, principal of Carpathia School, began teaching 30 years ago and she says the major difference in elementary teaching now is flexibility. "If you go back to the days when I started teaching, the measure of a good'teacher was how quiet the class was. Now, I would say the meas- ure of a good teacher is how much satisfaction the children get in their tasks."

Coltogf) Shopping Mall 327-2243 SEATTLE (AP) A federal judge viewed a film of "psychic surgery" in court and then prohibited three travel agencies from using it or similar films to promote tours of dying people to the Philippines. After viewing the film which purported to show a psychic surgeon removing dis- eased organs and tissue from patients, U S. District Judge Walter McGovern said: "My impression is that there sure as herk is no surgery The judge also included in his temporary restraining order a ban on the use of the terms "psychic surgery" and "psychic surgeons" or any symbol which implied "that actual surgery takes place or that any tissue is removed from the human body." In Vega] documents the Fed- eral Trade Commission -The Herald- Family Family power rests with wife WINNIPEG (CP) There's a theory that men may be the figureheads and acknowledged sources of power but that women are the actual decision-makers in the family. Dr. D. H Berg, assistant professor in the family study department in University of Manitoba's home economics faculty, is one sociologist who believes the theory. He said in an interview women hold the real power because they are the most physically present parent and the centre of all commu- nications within the family. "Messages from father to children or from children to father could be reinterpreted. That's power to manipulate." So many influences and variables enter into the mak- ing of a decision, Dr. Berg said, that one cannot simply look to the person making the final decision and assume that it was his or her decision. For example, a wife might want a green car while the husband wants a blue one. "It might be better for the husband to conform to his wife's will in order to ensure that they get along better." DECISION FINAL In that case, although the husband supposedly is the one making the final decision, it will be influenced to a large degree by other considera- tions. Dr. Berg said he is con- cerned over a new develop- ment in the family; the de- clining parental responsibility to their offspring. "Society still values the producing of children, the physical act of having them. But the value attached to rais- ing them well is He believed this has hap- pened because the society has lost its rewarding mechanism for the good parent. "The community pressure and support that went into de- fining what was a good or bad child has been lost in the ur- ban setting. "Before, parents would be asked: 'Why did you let your kid turn out that But the community can no longer ad- edicate." OPE ON JOB A man receives pay, aca- demic achievement and recognition on the job. "But who is going to pat the woman on the back and tell her she had done a good job in raising the If there was a mechanism for rewarding parenthood, Dr. Berg said, there wouldn't be so many women who say they are frustrated with their job as mothers. "The job would become meaningful." He said it no longer is con- sidered humiliating or de- meaning for a husband to share household chores and changes have occurred in so- cial activities. When women and men get together now, you no longer find men talking high finance in the living room and the women swapping recipes in the kitchen. "Conversations are shared and that's very important be- cause you're no longer creat- ing two separate worlds. Rather, differing attitudes be- come similar." But through all the changes, Dr. Berg said, the family is here to stay. "The family is one of the very few institutions left in society that carries the possi- bility of caring for a person regardless of their productiv-' i ity or efficiency. "The family is the only place where you can let your, hair down and until we can. find another institution that, can provide that function, the family will stay (FTC) defined psychic sur- gery as "purported to be a treatment by which the body is entered without surgical instruments, using only the bare hands." "The treatment is also known as 'psychic 'faith healing' and 'spiritual' or 'spirit healing.'" ft is not performed by doctors, the FTC said The FTC estimates that about persons, most from western Washington, have flown to the Philippines to be treated by psychic sur- geons The firms named as defend- ants in the FTC action are Travelling King, Inc of Seattle, which also does business as Ramble Tours, Gem Travel Service Inc. of San Francisco, and Phil-Am Travel Agency Inc., which has offices in Seattle and San Francisco. iffir NANCY BROWN Guild elects officers The Oldman River Potters' Guild named Nancy Brown as president for the coming term, with Rita Pankonin as vice president and Andy Aim, past president.
