The minister also proposed arge school boards elect trus- ees on the ward system with he chairman elected at large. However, Mr. Hyndman said no legislation is year. planned this Two Social Credit school crit- cs attacked the proposal for separate school and municipal elections, Dick Gruemvald (Lefhbridge West) suggested separate vot- ing would be expensive. Former education minister Bob Clark questioned how sep- arate elections could be held in counties where municipal coun- cillors wear a school trustee hat too. Mr. Hyndman replied, "I think that shouldn't preclude us from having a useful and continuing public discussion on the issue because if the' prin- ciple is good, a way to imple- ment it would be found." At present, Ira said, public Near accident-free day in Lethbridge Wednesday City police handled only one traffic accident Wednesday, although another on Highway at 43rd St., in the jurisdic- tion of the RCMP, spoiled the near-perfect record. The collision at the 43rd St. junction caused minor injuries to tliree persons, who were all treated and released at St. Michael's General Hospital. The two drivers involved were Marvin Heap, 75, of Ta- ber, and Miro Joseph Tomasta, 40, of Coaldale. A passenger in lie Heap vehicle, Jennie Heap, 70, was one of the people in- jured.

Matters dealing with edu- cation are at least as impor- tant as those dealt' with by mu- nicipal said the edu- cation minister. The cost of separate elec- tions would have to be bal- anced against the gain school trustees would receive more attention, he said. He suggested school elections be held three weeks or a month after municipal elections. Defending a ward system, Mr. Hyndman said at presenl some large school boards are out of touch with people and issues in some areas. A trustee elected to represent a ward would be in closer contact with local issues, he said. The chairman of the two lo- cal school boards contacted earlier this week had differenl opinions oa the subject. Public board chairman Dr Doug McPherson said he does not like the idea. :'If school boards are going to hold separate elections, it is going to cost a considerable amount. As Mr. Hyndman i well aware, the school board: of this province are already i a financial he said. Lethbridge separate bcrart chairman John Boras, on the other hand, thinks Mr. Hynd man's suggestions are "a step in the right direction." "One the problems alffay has been that school election have been lost in the pertinen civic issues at the time of municipal election. "Trusteeship is a much mor important position and school should be in control of loca authorities. Separate election may result in education issues becoming more important I the he said.
