Gordon Taylor (SC Drum- heller) asked if the provincial government is considering a freeze on any further "cen- tral! zalion" of school divisions in Alberta. "Certainly n o replied Mr. Hyndman. "The question of which schools in a local area are open or closed resides essentially with the local school boards." However, the minister added, "We are contemplating mea- sures perhaps legislalive, perhaps regulatory which will ensure that where a board wishes to materially change the arrangement ct schools in a ru- ral area, they would give ade- quate notice School ward's may be re- quired to advise parents six months before the start of a school year of pending closures "and perhaps also (conduct) a public meeting, or meetings, for the purpose of allowing the parents affected to make their concerns known." The provincial government would not over-rule the deci- sion of a school board, but "we would take such steps as are proper to ensure that there has been every opportunity to par- ents affected including ade- quate time for them to make clear to the boards their views NDP leader Grant Notley asked if a special grant formu- la is available to help small schools. Mr. Hyndman said rural schools are financed on the same basis as urban schools. But, he said million was added to the basic school fund this year to assist small schools experiencing special problems. "Some of the smaller rural jurisdictions in the remote parts of the province will be getting up to 15 per cent increase this year over last year Mr. Hyndman said, "We have staled and invited any school board which feels it has a spe- cial local problem to come to the department to see if there should be some change in the general regulations for the reason of equity." The million was adrted on top of money to finance the per- pupil grant formula to finance schools implemented this year, ,he said.

"It appeared they knew exactly what they were look- ing Ken Kotkas, owner of the store said. There was in an open till which was not touched by the burglars, and no ammunition, or other goods were taken, he said. The stolen guns ranged in calibre from a .22 t o .357 magnum, one of the most powerful handguns made, and only tliree of the 11 would be recognizable, even to someone who knew about handguns, Mr. Kotkas said. Thieves possibly gained en- try by cheating, or picking, the door lock, however this can hot be confirmed, police say. Mr. Kotkas told The Her- ald he suspects that the guns rail be sold to underworld criminals, where they can demand a high price. Too many patients in mental hospitals' There are patients in Alber- ta's mental hospitals who shouldn't be there, says the province's mental health direc- tor. Charles Hellon, director of the mental health division of the department of health and social development, said in Lethbridge Wednesday that "a lot" of patients should be treat- ed elsewhere. He suggested some be placed in auxiliary hospitals, nursing homes, or i'oster homes. "In some cases they could be treated in homes or apartments on a parole-type system." In the city to address the lo- cal mental health association, Dr. Hellon said Alberta has had a lot of success" in reducing the number of patients in the province's m e n tal Institutions. The reduction amounts to about 100 patients each year. It is the aim of tha associa- tion to continue to reduce in the future until hospitals like the one in Ponoka have only 500 resident patients. The Alberta Hospital in Ponoka has 680 pa- tients. Major Alberla mental hospi- tals will be used to treat only the severe mental disorder cases. This include poo- pie who have suffered extreme mental damage, disturbed eld- erly people, and those who have committed crimes and are de- clared mentally disturbed. In the near future, Albertans can expect changes in (he men- tal health act that will take the authority to commit a mental patient out of the hands of po- lice officers and physicians. Under the proposed changes this responsibility wiil be han- dled by social workers, psychi- atric nurses, and psychiatrists. Dr. Hellon said, "It is impor- tant that people with education as well as experience and abil- ity in the area of mental health be the ones to decide whether or not a patient should be com- mitted to a mental home." He said Alberta is just be- ginning to learn tow to use mental hospitals. In most cases the practice to be followed will be one of "don't commit right away." He said it would be much better to send social workers out to work with the patients rather than bring the patients In to a hospital. This "flying-squad" approach would be less expensive for the province and much easier on ocen as much a problem getting acople out as in." There are Uvo reasons for in- volving people other than psy- chiatrists in the mental health field the acute shortage o( psychiatrists and the refusal of psychiatrists to work and live in rural areas. "The shortage of psychi- atrists isn't restricted to Alber- claimed Dr. Hellon. "There is a shortage right across the country, mainly due to the num- ber of doctors that have left Canada to set up practice in the United States at a higher rate- of pay. "Now that salaries are reach- ing a comparable range, more and more psychiatrists are staying is Canada." A travelling psychiatrist pro- gram is in the development stage. It is being designed to provide better professional ser- vice to rural people.
