Quite often I have the impres- sion that people who are nol directly concerned with our high school, especially some parents, would give pretty biz- arre answers to this question.

These people comprise a problems, faces many same prejudices, and deals many of the same types of people as does society at large. At a recent teachers1 conven- tion, Dr. W. Worth, the toad of the Commission on Educational Planning, stated. "The trouble with cheap education is that we never slop paying for it." As a skdent these words arc especially important. In the fu- ture I believe that adults will the it must be emphasized (hat i term for drug use but still do it anyway.

Hut even then it's a limited exchange taken on the basis of world populations anil for a limited amount of lime considering one's life span. Kvery three years the travelling population lias a logical' spot to 'spend its holidays. II seems as though the same exchange between two country's peoples could take place on a much cheaper and more personal scale. Japan itself is an economically sound country but by no means a wealthy one. Yet for the sake of Expo a garden was built at the cost of million. This G5-acre garden is a classic of its lime. It has been designed by distin- guished Japanese specialists and architects reflect- ing "the styles and techniques of garden-making in Japan over the centuries." A Japanese garden is not a thing of riotous beauty such as the Buchart Gardens in Victoria, B.C. hut a serene and quiet place of contemplation. Many Lelhbridge businessmen have discovered the advantages of a restful break and have laken the time and opportunity of visiting our own iS'ikka Yuko during the summer months to seek solitude and an emotional hiatus during a busy day. Nikka Yuko is not just a tourist spot, it's avail- able every day for local residents to use and enjoy, yet many never do unless they are escorting out- of-town visitors. Therefore the full benefits of the garden arc in- tangible since goodwill and enjoyment cannot be assessed and counted. The million can be assessed, however, in units of food, housing, service programs and education lo the Japanese people. It can be counted in the areas which may suffer because of a lack of government funds. It's certainly for each country to decide its own limits but the practise is similar to all. the Standing Committee on on (he Council on Nursing. Law, Law Amendments and!

In Lcllibridgc for inslance we have a number of watchdogs on the city's spending and budgeting. kYntclirlogs are good for keeping tbe territory safe in order, but some of them are a bit too prone to bone-chewing anc! rag-picking. It's easy to put thumbs down on training courses For city personnel or American managers. We have the public to tell us is right and what is wrong all that public wbo ran for public office last OctOiicr. All those taxpayers who decide what educa- tional facilities are necessary when tbe school hoard was elected without even an election, due to a sur- prising lack of candidates. The St. Laurent trip, for instance will possibly come out of a fund which is set aside annually since Centennial for sucb occasions. Last year part of it went to finance Ihc exchange of students between St. Laur- ent and Lethbridge. Anyone involved with that trip will know what benefits there were. Rut when it comes right down fo the nitty- gritty few of the present council can pick up and leave their place of business whenever they choose no matter who's paying the shot. Can you imagine the tack that could be taken if no one went? Why city council isn't even interested enough to represent Lcthhridge. Few persons ever van for the financial benefits of city council or the school board, and (hose who kid themselves that it may be worlti it to run should take a moment and check some alderman's calendar. Add lo that the hours of telephone calls from taxpayers, hours of reading materials, hours away from 'home and family, and keeping up-to-date on local situations, you'll find you were never so paid. The dedicated ones and the interested ones run and lei's not forgel they are taxpayers, many of them with young children. They aren't well-heeled enough lo disregard the inflationary cost of living nor unconcerned enough 1o try lo. The public has every right lo question and com- plain. 11 also has a duty to he informed before doing so, whether you're an old age pensioner or a member of citv council. MAIL ORDERS!
