Dr. Murray Jampolsky, here Tuesday with Education Minis- ter Lou Hyndman for informal talks with Iqcal high school stu- dents, said there should be no fear ol electing teachers as trustees. But ha admitted such a situa- tion would be bad for the1 teach- ing profession locally and prcvincially. "There is nothing worse to teachers than having teachers or, a school board.

What do we expect to achieve? "All children do not develop at the same rate. People who arouse these kind of questions and feelings (on sexual aware- ness) in young people should have miljstones tied around their necks and thrown into the sea.

The provincial teachers' lead- er did earn favorable response :o his comments on student selection of teachers. "The game can work both ways. There's about as much choice of teachers as teachers have a choice of students. 'Student selection of teach- ers would be justified if tlie mo- Teaeliers in Alberta how may be elected as trustees lo boards other than those located in the city where a teacher works. Mr. Hyndman, questioned by students for lu's reaction to teacher trustees, said he is "not that sure" a change in existing legislation should be made. "The electorate is making the final decision on who should be elected and who should sit where. Right now, teachers, can sit on a neighboring board but not on their own. "I'm just not that sure.

Also attending Tuesday's meeting were Alberta School Trustees'1 Association president Harald Gunderson, deputy edu- cation minister Dr. Earl Hawk- esworth and Edith Hnytka, president of the Alberta Fed- eration of Home and School As- sociations. Mr. Gunderson and Dr. Jam- polsky exchanged bitter words on the question of teacher aides. It is extremely difficult to walk into a classroom and teach effectively. We're not op- Dpsed to the use of teacher aides. We are opposed to their assuming professional functions of Dr. Jampolsky said. Mr. Gundcrson, who favors teacher aides, said the supply of volunteers allows trustees to be selective in hiring aides and Minister at LCI Lou Hyndman flanked by Malcolrn Lowings, left, and Grtlydon Gehm.

Mr. Gunderson said he is concerned about a lack of in- volvement by parents in edu- cation and with a trend to innovative, unproven teaching programs. "Schools get caught tip in a bandwagon approach to socie- tal problems. Crash programs are sometimes rash programs, which result in hash and trash. 'Education should prepare you for the all important skills, which are still reading, 'riling and Mr. Gunderson said. He said there must be some flexibility to school courses, which could include fine arts such as music, art and drama. But he cautioned students not to push for change without careful consideration. 'It's something like prayer. Be sure you know what you're asking for because you're li; able to get Mr. Gunderson said. He said educators and trus- tees must be prepared to offer a better system for "children of the poor, immigrant fam- ilies and children with learn- g disabilities. "Are we doing the very best for students in these all-impor- tant early years? Not enough is being done. "If I understand (Mr. Hynd- man 1 correctly, his government going to address itself to these kind of problems during the years to Mr. Gun- derson said. Mr. Hyndman stayed much in the wings during Tuesday's appearance mainly at his own request that students di- rect questions to Mr. Gunder- son, Dr. Jampolsky, Dr. Hawkesworth or Mrs. Hnytka. The minister did comment, generally, on student transfer- ability, consumer education and the abundance of leisure time. "We want to have excellence as the target for our school system. We are moving now in the direction of trying to re- duce the difficulties in moving (as a student or teacher) from one area of Canada to another. "Leisure and recreation can be work. We can go into a life- style of work which we do en- joy. But school is not a place of entertainment or recreation. "Relevance is Mr. Hyndman said. provides a saving to taxpayers. "In Calgary we have volunteers doing little tasks that allow the teachers more time to do what they're being paid to do and that's leach. "Any thing that jeopardizes this program I resent very, very much. We could come to an eyeball-to-eyeball confronta- tion which will determine just who exactly runs the schools, Mr. Gunderson said. Dr. Jampolsky, glaring across the table and raising the tone of his voice considerably, said he would not be encour- aged to argue with1 Mr. Gundei son: 'I don't want to get into _ fight with you, Mr. Gunderson, at this meeting. But if you'c like to step outside the arena that's a different story." The exchange did not go un- noticed by students selected to attend the informal meeting. A student comment, that hare feelings .between the two men were obvious, prompted a soothing statement from Mir. Gunderson: "I would be remiss if I left the impression that trustees and the Alberta public, are nol appreciative of the great con- tributions our classroom teach- ers are making to our society.' The minister and his official psrty left LCI about 4 p.m. Tuesday. Earlier in the day, the group visited Calgary students at James Fowler High School. Mr. Hyndman told reporters student concerns about con- sumer education, ecology, Ca- nadian content in schools anc financial guidance were prev- alent during his two stops.

Mr. Siltala was then found guilty of over delivery ol rapeseed to the Western Canadian Seed Pro- cessors Ltd. plant in Leth bridge.

The autopsy results were ad- mitted as evidence in the noil- capital murder trial of David iVilliam Threirten, 24, of Leth- widge. The trial opened Tues- day in Alberta Supreme Court in Lethbridge, before Mr. Jus- tice A. J. Cullen. Dr. David a Leth- bridge pathologist, testified when he received the body of Angela Huemer prior to per- forming tlie autopsy, it was in an "almost complete, total stale of with most -of the internal organs, attitude should be studied' By RIC SWIHART Herald Staff Writer Alberta vege- table industry must determine consumer attitudes about its iroducts before needed promo- ton programs can be effective- ly launched, according to a marketing expert. Paulette Foryna, consumer marketing officer for tlie Alber- ta Department of Agriculture, (old the annual meeting of the Alberta Fresh Vegetable Grow- ers Association here Tuesday all aspects of the food chain from producer to consumer must be studied to assist the vegetable industry. She said the quality of the product can be related to the iemand for that product and a better quality product .will mean less waste. In this in- stance, a quality product is one which is acceptable to tlie peo- >le and nutritional. Miss Foryna, a recent grad- uate from the University of Manitoba, said she has lieard repeatedly that Alberta pota- :oes and carrots are the best. She said she can't say if Albcr- :a carrots are indeed better than California carrots and sug- gested a taste panel be estate lishcd which would solve the is- sue one way or the other. 'If Alberta carrots are proved better than California carrots, this fact could be bet- ter used in promotion cam- she said. She said since coming to AI> berta, all she has heard about the reported good potatoes have been complaints. She said she has seen very good quality potatoes in warehouses but, in many instances, the potatoes which get to the consumer have lost considerable quality. She pointed to a survey of consumers which showed the criteria for potato purchases. They included no rolled pota- toes, a firm potato of uniform size, no green appearance, free of bruising and a smooth skin. Moisture in the plastic bags which causes deterioration of the potatoes was also mention- ed as a drawback to Alberta potatoes. Miss Foryna said if the po- E. S. P.

She said the consumer ac- ceptance of locally-grown vege- tables depends on many fac- tors, including: 1 Out of season competition from imported product. Quality of the local prod- uct compared to what the con- sumer is used to eating. How the local product Is graded in relation to consumer wants. 1 How the demands of the consumer changes, especially in regard to quality. difference between markets in regard to the qual- ity of product which be ac- cepted in the various parts of the country. New varieties needed in market patterns which have been changing to more product providing added vita- mins and minerals. The quantities consumed in various parts of the prov- ince vary and a consumer edu- cation program is needed lo stabilize that consumption. Miss Foryna said the nutri- tional content of vegetables is becoming more important to the consumer. Fresh vegetables lose nutritional value from the farm to the (able and added care must be taken to minimize this loss. MARCH SPECIAL ROSE BOWL AND CYBIOIUM ORCHID and all body fluids gone as a result of decomposition. The court was told a knotted jelt was found around the girl's neck. However, the flesh around the head and neck was deteriorated to such an extent t it was impossible to deter- mine whether the girl had been itrangled with -the belt. Dr. Farquhar testified that he [ound what appeared to be a bruise near the left eye, but added that it could have been caused as the body deteri- orated, There were no fractures or damage indicating any violence to the body, he said. The girl's body was found In ditch beside a district road about seven miles southwest of Picture Suite about two weeks after sho had been reported missing. On cross-examination by de- fence counsel Vaughan Hem- brotf, Dr. Farquhar stated there were no signs of sexual assault, and that Miss Huemer's clothes were not disarrayed in any fashion. The pathologist also told the court (hat her fingernails, which were long and pointed, were not broken. He added that in most stran- gulation cases, it is common that the victim put up some sort of a struggle. Mrs. Beverley Prison, of the scrology section of the BCMP crime detection laboratory in Edmonton, testified she had tested several items for blood stains. She found blood, of an unidentifiable blood group, on a bicycle belonging to the de- ceased, and on a car seat, car- door handle, car-door panel, and arm rest of a 1958 auto- mobile belonging to Threinen. She could, however, find no blood on clothing allegedly Thrcineii's. The trial continues today, and is expected to last for tbi remainder of the week.
