Use Your Eaton Budget Charge Account, Teacher staff cuts scor EDMONTON (CP) Mass liysleria over spiralling ccluca- lion custs has been generated, resulting in discrimination against Alberta teachers hy 'unic school hoards, Walter Hughes, iiresidont of the Alberta Tenclicrs At'socialioji, s ;i i d here. Sonic school hoards arc not using logic in releasing large numbers of Icaclicrs lo cut costs, he lold a news confer- ence. A ''critical" uncmploymenl situation is being created "at a lime government priority is on he said. OUT OF WORK A possible teachers new graduates, those changing johs and others could he out of work in Alberta and looidng for jobs by Ihc fall, he said. pooiiKK 'STANDARDS The policy of cutting teaching staff irresponsible aiul "some iKiards are cutting teach- ing staff before consiricring cut- ting other non-labor oriented services." "This can only result in poor- er educational standards and an increasing pupil teacher ratio at a time when the public wants the accent placed on in- dividualized instruction." Dr. N. P. Krynk, associate executive secretary of the as- sociation, said natural attrition, such as retirement and resig- nation, should take care of any need to reduce staff. He also said that some school boards appear to have money "but arc not spending it." "It's inconceivable that the taxpayers of this province should have their money used to create employment in other areas, but that their children's education should have lo suffer for lack of adequate funding, or an unwillingness of boards to hilly appreciate the magnitude of releasing teachers before searching for alternative meth- ods or culling costs Dr. Ilrynyk said the govern- ment is as much to blame as the school boards. There was a deficiency in the foundation system of financ- ing elementary and secondary education as well as in the action of the school boards in "jumping on the hand wagon." Alberta prices high OTTAWA (CP) A drug-sub- stitution plan approved by the British Columbia government was described as premature today by a spokesman for the Pharmaceutical Manufacturers Association of Canada. Don Harper, a public relations spokesman, said the association does not oppose the principle of .substitution but feels federal drug regulations should he changed before it is imple- mented. He said current regulations require manufacturers to prove the safety of drugs but do not guarantee that all reaching the market are medically effective- Under a British Columbia or- der-in-council passed last week, j pharmacists would have the op- tion of substituting cheaper drugs of satisfactory quality un- less the prescribing doctor stip- ulated otherwise. Mr. Harper said the associa- tion would not endorse substitu- tion unless specifically ap- proved by the prescribing physi- cian or unless the medical effec- tiveness of all drugs reaching the market was assured. Also, he said, it has yet to be proved thai substitution actually results in lower prescription prices. A substitution program has been in effect in Alberta since I3S2. he snid. but the province's prescription jvicc, do- Icripincd in an annual survey by ll't1 Canadian Pharmacists Association, was the second hi.Che.--l in Canada in 1970.

'hari karf By VICTOR MACKIE Ileriild Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau by stalling off the federal election has commit- ted "political liari John Dicfenbaker, former Progres- sive Conservative prime minis- ter said here. "This is the most damaging thing Trudeau has done to Uie government. There is no ques- tion he was going to go to the country this summer and then lie backed away. "It is an indication of the magnitude of his said the veteran parliamentarian. He pointed out that the gov- ernment was elected in June, 1968 and has served four years in office. The voters arid many of the Literals in Parliament had expected Mr. Trudeau would call a spring or summer I election and were surprised he had decided against it, he said. "There is such a thing as the electorate reacting to an uncer- tain course particularly when it comes to making a decision about going to the country. The electorate will consider the prime minister was overcome by fears of losing office and will conclude he wauled lo hang on to power as long as said Ihc Prince Albert Progres- sive Conservative who was first elected lo the House of Com- mons in 1940. Park towns autonomy opposed CALGARY (CP) The Na- tional and Provincial Parks As- sociation of Canada has written a letter to Premier Peter Lougheed opposing autonomy for Banff and Jasper townsites. The Alberta government had expressed an interest in taking under its administration the two resort towns which now are controlled by the national parks In which they are situated. Parks association president Dr. J. G. Nelson of London, Ont., mote "in our opinion, Al- berta's boundaries do slop at the gales of the national parks, which to all Canadians." An amendment to the Parks Act being considered by parlia- nicnl allows agreements for a province ''lo usr and occupy public land within a park for the purpose of providing accom- incdaiion for persons visiting the park." I. N'ifliiil, director of the i national parks biar.ch, said the j amendment is aimed at "legal- izing" a provincially-ntn lodge in :i Nova Scolin park, not at providing autonomy for park lou-ns.
