SF.T POLICY Replying in Ihe legislature Tuesday to a question from Mr. Slromberg, Education Minister Lou Hyndman said school boarcL; in the province have the authority to set policy regard- ing punishment of students. The minister added that par- ents may press assault charges under the federal Criminal Code Outside the House, Mr. Stromterg said the trend in the last few years in Alberta schools has been away from use of the strap. He said he polled some schools in his con- stituency and discovered that the strap was used only throe j ment. [times in the past year in the average school. NO OBJECTION The MLA said he would not object to strapping students in higher grades on rare occa- sions in the principal's office in the presence of more than one adult, but objects to use of the strap on elementary students in class. Even in the early 1000s when many teachers kept a stick or pointer on their desk to threat- en students to behave, punish- ment was administered after school, rather than in front of fellow students. slst on, Mr. Lougheed said, Is that the discussions include a sincere effort on the part of all governments to achieve a proper allocatian of resources. He said he places a higher priority on a proper division of govern ment responsibilities and the financial resources to carry them out than he does on reaching agreement on an amending formula for the con- stitution.

Tories lost I ho sent, said Mr. Wyso, Govt. farm policy branded genocide Dv PAUL JACKSON Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Alberta MP Don Mazankowski charged In the House ol Commons Tuesday night that the Trudeau adminis- tration is carrying out a planned campaign o[ "occupa- tional genocide" of Canada's farming industry. Mr. Mazankowski (PC Vegreville) said (he federal gov- ernment's agricultural plans are based on a "plot to cure" Canada's farming problems by encouraging the removal vast numbers ol people from the ag- ricultural industry. Speaking during a debate on a bill to amend the Farm Credit Act, Mr. Mazankowski said Jus- tice Minister Otto Lang, minis- ter responsible for the Canadian Wheat Board, had openly told a group of agriculture graduates at the University of Saskatche- wan that the family farm is not entitled to subsidies. The Alberta MH, who quoted statements alleged to lie made by Mr. Lang and carried In the Dec. 22, 1971, Issue of Star Weekly, said he believes Mr. Lang's earlier statements and opinions on farming still hold and that Ottawa wants to opt out of the program of assisting the industry. "Subsidy is now i bad word :n agriculture. It is all right for .he department of Industry, Trade and Commerce. It is all right for the Department of Manpower and Immigration. It s all right for the Department of Regional Economic Expan- sion. But, I repeat, when it comes to agriculture it is a bod word. The government is firmly committed to withdrawing any responsible- assistance to agri- culture." Mr. Mazankowski told the Commons he found It somewhat "strange" that Ottawa should be considering amendments to the Farm Credit Act to make credit easier at a time when farmers in Western Canada are so deeply in debt that foreclo- sures are mounting rapidly. The Albarta MP indicated that farmers are in need of fin- ancial assistance and that he is all for responsible financial aid plans and other forms of posi- tive assistance to farmers. How- ever, he said there is plenty ot evidence to show that "easy credit" has become a curse rather than a blessing to Can- ada's farmers. It was no dupli- cate for good, sound agriculture policies. "In my own province of Al- berta where there are some 25 per cent of farm credit loans in arrears, some 17 foreclosures have taken place in the past year, 1971-72, and 102 foreclo- sures are pending. One must therefore ask whether this legis- lation will be of any v.ilue or as- sistance to those farmers who are experiencing this type of Health centre program to he examined EDMONTON (CP) The fea- sibility of developing com- munity health and social devel- opment centres will be ex- amined by the provincial gov- ernment, the legislature agreed Tuesday. It unanimously passed a res- olution asking the government to study the costs, possible ben- efits and administration of an integrated healtli centre pro- gram.
