Study predicts problems for education policymakers EDMONTON (CP)-A study of economic and population trends in Alberta in the next 35 years predicts "vexatious problems" for education policymakers.

S. cline in their ability to meet educational costs will put additional pressure on the provincial government to increase its share of costs through equalization foundation systems." And declining sources of municipal revenues will put more pressure on the provincial government to finance an increased share of education costs, the report said. It was commissioned by the Human Resources Research Council and the Worth Commission on educational planning and written by professor Don Seastone of the University of Calgary. The report says that the concentration of populations in the cities will tend to simplify the location of new post-secondary facilities. It warns against a policy of building these facilities outside the major centres in an. attempt to reverse population flOWi "Costs of post-secondary education would accelerate sharply as massive construction programs for residence halls became necessary." It also says that the Alberta government has not given sufficient attention to special education facilities for students who are slightly or seriously retarded, suffer emotional dis- turbances or have physical impairments. Dr. Seastone said that in the next decade prirnary and secondary school systems will, for the first time in 20 years, have a respite from constanley growing numbers of students. This will allow a systematic review of progress and problems before another period of growth. The pressure will continue until about 1980 in post-secondary institutions and resume again in about 1990, he said. Select priest on police board CALGARY (CP) - A Roman Catholic priest, Father Gregory Hildebramdt of the St. Francis retreat house at Cochrane, Alta., has been selected as one of five members to the Calgary Police Commission.

The figure assumes a population of 3 million and a growth rate of five per cent annually in the gross provincial product, with no change in taxes. It was supplied by the provincial budget bureau to professor Don Seastone of the University of Calgary and was contained in the report released today. Personal income tax would amount to $4.2 billion compared with $223 million last year, corporation taxes would be $664 million up from the current $89.5 million, liquor profits would rise to $415.9 million from $72.6 million and oil and gas royalties would total $986.7 million, up from $178.9 million. The treasury department also produced estimates of the revenue that would be obtained from a five-per-cent retail sales tax on all goods except food and drugs.
