South in short Forty Mile enrolment drops to 10-year low FOREMOST (Staff) Stu- dent enrolment in the Forty Mile County has dropped to 198 the lowest in the last 10 years, says Schools Superintendent C.

Association member Lenora Overn will convene the event. There will be about 10 tables which will display the foods of different ethnic groups here. "It's designed to get the whole community says Mrs. Overn. "It has been going on for many years. When everybody came to Coaldale there were so many different cultures and we have food as prepared by the Japanese, Polish, Ukrainian, British, Russian, German and many other nationalities and cultures." The association donates much of its proceeds to sup- port local school bands. Reciprocating, a school band from Kate Andrews or R. I. Baker School will perform a concert before the food is viewed and sold. "The older people still like to bring food to our fair, even though they don't, have children in school any says Mrs. Overn.

In a report prepared for the annual ratepayers' meeting to b'e held at 1 p.m. March 6 in the Orion Community Hall, Mr. Elle says the county school committee has taken several steps "to provide our students with services that normally have been available only to children in larger centres." Reading Consultant Allan Doig has continued his work with teachers in all county schools, especially those in Burdett, Conquervillc, Etzikom, Manyberries and the Hutterite colonies. He is involved with an Educational Opportunities Fund project. "We are going to see some very good results from this says Mr. Elle. The county no longer has a guidance counsellor. "It was decided not to fill this position since each of our high schools has a part time school counsellor. Almost all the elementary schools have full or part time learning dis- abilities teachers and so many guidance problems are handl- ed in this says Mr. Elle. He says driver education has dropped in popularity mainly because the cost for the in car portion of the course has gone from per student to more than per student.
