Botird appeals gout, decision The continued operation of the Gait School of Nursing was virtually assured by the l.oth- brirfye General and Auxiliary Hospital and Nursing Home District No. 65 Board, Monday. Hospital based nursing schools provide good quality nurses at considerably less cost than those educated .it colleges and universities, claims. Hospital personnel honored the board southern Albertans were recognized for their long- time contribuLions to the field The decision was reached fol- lowing a special closed inciting held by the board earlier this month, during which the results of an extensive investigation by the board aired. The board's decision is in contrast to an Alberta Hospital Services Commission author- ized study which concluded that nil types of nursing training should be provided at colleges. In its own investigation, the hoard collected position papers from the exsiting nursing facul- ty, nursing service groups, the I medical profession, and from six hospital-based nursing schools currently operating in Alberta. The local study concluded the Gait School of Nursing pro- duces quality nurses at consid- Services Commission finance director's decision not to pro- vide more money lo run the Lethbridge Municipal Hospitals recently expanded pyschictnc facilities. The commission's finance di- rector said no additional oper- ating lands for a six-month pe- riod ending in April, will be provided, The AHSC decision will be i appealed by the board. A board member said the commission decision not lo pro- vide the money was probably "punishment" for a report re- cently published in The Herald which stated that southern Al- berta's pyschiatric bed facili- ties vere grossly inadequate. In two letters to the board, the AHCS said: bed facilties CAMWRLI Staff Writer BANFF No significant changes are apparent in the j government's role in education, said Sid Kubinotf, .director of federal provincial relations for the department of finance. Mr. Rubinoff told delegates I to the Alberta seminar on edu- cation finance Monday that the main role of the federal gov- ernment has been to support i education financially, mainly by transfers to individuals and to provinces. He said the most important aspect of federal involvement in education is its part in post- secondary education. "Approximately one half of post secondary education in the past year has been financed by federal he said. This may well continue to be the mnin function of the federal government in the field of edu- cation. Mr. Rubinoff said Ottawa feels it should stick to its pres- ent method of providing equa- j lization grants to the have not areas to ensure equal opportun- ity in all fields, including edu- cation. In an earlier address, Dr. E. J. Hanson, professor of eco- I nomics at the University of Al- iberta, said Canada did a tre- i mendous job of building .in I educational system, in the 60s and piays second fiddle to only i the United States in this area. He said, however, that the main source of money for edu- cation should come from feder- al income tax rather than from such sources as property and sales tax. NOTHING NEW The problem with education is that nothing really new lias come on the scene since the said Florence Hender- ison. executive officer with the Federation of Women Teachers n Ontario. "Very little that is new or exciting has been developed .luring the past 40 six; said. "Our approach lo education 'inance has been either a straight adoption or modifica- tion of the plar.s that developed for Cihu'utkm there should in the 1930s."

II is open to all interested persons. come has long been regarded as a more eqiritaljlc measure." Miss Henderson said if prop- erly tax is going to remain as the basis fur local fund rais- ing, then tethers and trustees should tuku a more active role in determining what use is made of taxable property by making (heir voices heard in the areas of town planning and industrial and business develop- ment. Dr. Hanson said that too much emphasis has been plac- ed in the wrong area. "We have been neglecting kindergartens and pre school programs, we have developed more at the top of the he said. Dr. Hanson said the best way to bring ahnut change is ''to make the life of the premier miserable until you get what you want.

U.S.-China relations f misguided9 says Australian By RON' CAI.DWEI.L Herald Staff Writer The United States recognition o( China and President Nixon's recent visit to the Communist country were misguided efforts to improve relations by opening the door to increased trade be- hvecn. the two super powers. That assessment was put for- ward by Eric Butler, national director of the Australian League of Rights during an ad- dress at the University of Leth- I) ridge. Mr. Butler said U.S. Presi- dent Roosevelt tried the same lactic with the Soviet Union in Ihe 1030s, and history has shown that it backfired. ''There is a new, vast export market seen by some in Red China and the U.S. wants he said. "Recognition enables expand- ed trade and this supposedly improves relations." Other reasons behind the "dramatic shift" in policy by President Nixon, Mr. Butler said, were Nelson Rockefeller and Dr. Henry Kissinger. He said the Rockefeller fam- ily rescued Nixon from politi- cal oblivion in the early 1960s and Rockefeller was known to be an advocate of China trade.

Mr. Butler said the first ma- jor appointment made by Pres- ident Nixon when lie assumed office was that of naming Kis- singer to the foreign affairs post. The United States has changed its outlook on China, he said, but "I doubt there has been any real change in China's objectives. Jt is just a change of tactics."
