The picture was filmed in the Sparwood and Fernie areas and attempted ro depict the impact of the resurgence of mining activity brought to the area by Kaiser Resources coal sales to Japan. The film commenced showing two retired miners, Tom Reid and Alex Henderson of Fernie, during a stroll at Coal Creek. The pair recalled the past mine disasters and the lives that were lost in the area. Moving to Sparwood, the scenes showed the massive new machinery and resultant pollution of water from past and present operations. A large portion of the film is devoted to the problems of urban renewal under which many residents were displaced from their places of residence or business. There are also interviews with business and civic leaders of Sparwood, much of which, due to changing conditions, is no longer pertinent. The documentary was directed by Michael Scott, who later presented a copy of the film to Sparwood council for future use by the District of Spar-' wood. i meetings.

The district superintendent of schools, along with the principal, is to discuss the matter and make recommendations to the board. Sex education in British Columbia schools tend to originate with the local school authorities working in co-operation with medical authorities and parents. Once a program has been devised it can be submitted to Victoria for approval. The district superintendent reported several successful programs have been undertaken in various parts of the province. The district superintendent estimates the enrolment in the district will increase to 3,000 students by September.

Resignations accepted by Taber school division TABER (HNS) - Teacher resignations, leaves, and retirements were accepted at a meeting of Taber school division's board of trustees. Effective at the end of the school year in June, Kevin Russell Jrr' Vauxhall High School, Miss C. Ann Walker of W. R. Myers High School in Taber, and Mrs. Debbie Batchelder now on leave from Central School, Taber, will leave the teaching staff of the Division. Robert Pawlowski of Vauxhall High School was granted leave of absence from Monday, June 21 to attend summer school at the University of Oregon at Eugene, Wash. Retiring at the end of the school year are Mrs. Arvilla J. Anderson of Barnwell, and Dar-rel Peterson, principal at the Kinniburgh School. However, Mr. Peterson will only legally retire, and will continue as principal and part-time teacher. Reduced enrolment at the three-teacher school has prompted a reduction in staff, and Mr. Peterson's part-time service will effect the necessary reduction. In other teacher centred business, the board was in receipt of correspondence from the ATA Taber Local requesting the board's position on the subject of the teacher-board advisory committee. Considered in the light of the fact that all teacher working conditions are now subjects for salary negotiations, the board found that the committee will be phased out. There is now little non-negotiable business which such a committee could handle. The board also felt that in the past, communications between the committee and the teachers had been poor, results of committee decisions having not been brought back to the teachers. Specifically, the board referred to the matter of time off for extra curricular activities, particularly in the sports field, when agreements reached around the committee table died there, and teachers concerned threatened strike action. 12 attend tea ENCHANT (HNS) - A Tup-per tea was held at the home of Mrs. Jessie McLeod recently.
