Ten years ago, the aver- age period of survival in chil- dren, from the day cancer was delected to the time of death, war four months. Today, the average period of survival in children with cancer is three years. There is no evidence to suggest that cancer is contag- ious or inheritable.

Herald Staff Writer BANFF Early childhood education holds ttic key to the future success of our society, said Lawrence Tymko, director of economic services for the Alberta School Trustees' Asso- ciation. Mr. Tymko (old 100 delegates attending tin: seminar on edu- tional finance here Thursday that early childhood is where the groundwork is !aid for all future learning. The preschool years are the most important years of a child's life, he said. "A tremendous amount of learning takes place during these years and this learning is the foundation for all further he saicl. Mr. Tymko took the provin- cial government to task for fail- ing lo back up its statements i of producing educated people lo match the galloping growth of on education with money. "While the provincial govern- ment holds that one of the most important aspects of today's so- ciety is education, il has nol shifted lo a new level in its financial support of education. "This position may he con- strued as indicative of regres- sive support for education." He said for too long the em- phasis of educational spending has been on the hack end- high school rather than at the beginning, it be- longs. "Can you imagine the state education would be in today had the federal government taken the matching dynamic initia- tive in early childhood educa- tion as it did in vocational edu- he said. Education faces the challenge I he said. technology and. "education can do it if it is given a Mr. Tymko said. That chance "lies in immedi- ate acceptance as public policy of (he principle of universal ac- cessibility t o early childhood education." Hilling on a point already ex- pressed several times during the five day seminar, Mr. Tymko said there should tie more financial support for edu- cation from the federal govern- ment.

Speaking to the final session of the ATA seminar on educa- tional finance, Dr- Keeler said all of the changes are not needed immediately but, ho added, five changes costing million cannot wait much lon- ger. I believe that Albcrtans are able to bear the increased costs of these services and that this will require additional or in- creased taxes." lie said. The five priority items listed by Dr. Keeler were: kinder- garten, special education, counselling, teacher internship and in-service programs. He said other important, but less-urgent areas are: early education for three and four LONELY INTERLUDE This flatcar loaded with plywood stts alone on a siding on 43rd St. waiting for some friendly engine io come rolling along to help it on ifs journey along the seemingly endless ribbon of Kerber Photo year olds, smaller classes, more librarians, compensatory1 education, teacher aides End better qualified teachers. KindfTgarlen rasiks number one on Dr. Keelcr's list of priorities. "Although I do not conceive of kindergarten as a downward extension of the Grade 1 curri- culum, I would accompany the introduction of kindergarten with a raising of the minimum entrance age for Grade 1 by two to four he said. I believe our Grade 1 en- trance age has been lowered to 5V- yocrs old solely to try to com p ens ate for the lack of kindergartens." Dr. Keeler estim atcd the cost of having ki ndcrg artens in Alberta at million a year. He said improved services for handicapped children would cost about million a year.

He has cultivated the land and drown harrows and pack- ers over the land. The next slage of his opera- tion, to be started soon, is flie application of a pro-emergent herbicide into the soil which will kill the wild oats us they germinate. Mr. Harris said the recent rainfall lias not slowed the field operations. John Debona, five miles west and one mile south of Tabcr, is using three summerfallowing units to prepare his fields. John Ftlntoff of the Foremost district said some farmers are starting work on the fields.

Henry W. Thiessen, bom in Lcthbridgo 3fl years ago, has been involved in drafting the new Coal Conservation Act to be introduced during the cur- rent session of tlie legislature. The surface reclamation council, said Mr. Thicssen, is charged with making sure that pipelines, oil and gas wells, s trip mines n nd other i n dustrial activities outside for- est reserves, leave land in rea- sonable shape. Under new conservation leg- islation the council's authority may be extended to cover land both inside and outside forest reserves, Colcman Collieries and Kai- ser Resources mines in Ihc Crowsnest Pass, for instance, are both Jn forest reserves and hence outside reclamation council jurisdiction. They are responsible to tho department of lands and for- ests at present. The Reclamation Council was trans ferrcd earli er thi s month from the department of mJncs and minerals to the de- partment of the environment. Mr. Thiessen no relation to Jake Thicssen, manager of the St. Mary River frrigation District was supervisor of grazing reserves with the de- partment of agriculture and the department of lands and for- ests in Lethbridge in be- fore being transferred to gov- ernment offices in Edmonton.

Dr. Keeler said the need In imc areas would be relieved! somewhat with the establish- ment of kindergartens and more speci nl cd u c a lion ser- vices. He stated that education should not have to lake a back seat to any of the other public services when it comes to get- ing money from the govern- ment. 'We should diminish effort physical expenditures roads, bridges and the like. "It is more difficult, if not impossible to advocate poorer health care, reduced social as- sistance and less adequate post secondary education. "But the rate of Increase in spending in these areas in re- cent years has been consider- ably greater than in elemen- tary and secondary education. Perhaps it is time to redress the balance in this He said taxes are the source of money to finance the educa- tion al expenditures he advo- cates.
