Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 26, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, May 26, 1973 Gasoline drain claimed OTTAWA (CP) Canada faces a gasoline shortage unless there is a clamp down on ex- ports to the United States, T. C. Douglas ichan-The Islands) said in the Commons. Mr. Douglas said national energy board figures showed to- tal exports for January and February were gallons but climbed to gallons by the end of March. "Gas is being drained out of this country to feed the de- mands of the U.S." Energy Minister Donald Mac- donald replied there is no immi- nent danger of a shortage, but the situation "obviously will have to be watched very closely." If a shortage dees appear likely, the government will im- pose export controls on gaso- line, he said. Mr. Douglas argued tha signs of a sl.Vtage already hac appeared; some independen dealers had been forced to shul down and others had been tok suppliers would not guarantee deliveries after the end of this month. He asked Mr. Macdonald to hold talks during the weekend with the energy board and re- quested the export total for April and an estimate for May.

Edmonton, Alberta GOVERNMENT OF ALBERTA Home background educational must (Dispatch of the Times, London) STOCKHOLM The largest international survey in educa- tion ever conducted has con- firmed that home background tends to be the most import- ant factor in a pupil's educa- tion achievement. For seven years, 300 experts gathered information from some students and 000 teachers at schools in 20 countries to measure edu- cational levels and achieve- ment. The study, made public here Friday was con- ducted by the Stockholm-based International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement The first three reports by the UNESCO sponsored organiza- tion consisted of a multination- al survey of scholastic achieve- ment in science, literature and reading comprehension. The pupils surveyed were aged 10 years, 14 years and "pre-uni- The experts gathered 110 mil- lion "bits" of information about students to show that their edu- ca-tional performance depends more upon the socio-economic in countries than upon the schools themselves. They also found that inequal- ities between social groups and sexes were significantly relat- ed to the structure of the edu- cational system in question the more selective a system, the more social bias is appar- ent. Prof. Torsten Husen of Swe- den, chairman of I.E.A., said at a news conference that the chief aim of the survey was "to try to give answers on whether broadening education- al possibilities lowers educa- tional standards." "Stay In School" "Get An Education' How many times have you told this to your own children or to their friends! You emphasize that the days of getting by on a grade 9 or 10 education are gone! However, there's one catch EDUCATION COSTS MONEY! and many families today, with the cost of living so high, do not have the available funds to allow one, or several children in the family to continue their education to the college or university level. YOU CAN HELP If you are a businessman, plant operator, self-employed, or just a homemaker, now is the time to hire a student who is willing to work to continue his or her education next fall. Hundreds of students are looking for jobs, any job; for a day, a week, a month or all summer. Why not call soon. HIRE A STUDENT MANPOWER CENTRE ACROSS FROM CANADA MANPOWER ATTCMTIAM MIIEIlMVll Make sure you are registered at the Student Manpower Centre an office exclusively for stu- job manned by like yourself, who know the scorel The general conclusion, he said, was that schools do make a difference but that the home background is even more im- portant. Dr. R. L. Thorndike of teach- ers college, Columbia Univer- sity, the author of the massive reading comprehension survey, said his results demonstrated that the number of years of schooling and the students' ages were not strongly related to achievement in reading com- prehension. "Tlie results also showed an unexpectedly large difference in reading levels between stu- dents in developing and in in- dustrial he said. He said reading ability was chiefly determined by the home and family background. "We had little success in identifying school Thorndike added. Dr. I. C. Comber of Britain, co-author of the science study, said that the school, even more than the home, made significant difference in scientific achieve- ment. His researches also found that boys showed a great- er interest in science than girls in the 19 countries surveyed, and performed better on sci- ence tests. This difference, he said was found in all the countries tak- ing part in the study, and the difference grew as the students became older. Comber suggest- ed this all stems from con- ditioning and social factors. For instance, the surveyors found that girls performed better on science tests in coeducational schools. "Schooling does make a dif- ference in the learning of sci- Comber told reporters. "A further important finding is that the nature of the training of science teachers and their professional orientation were found to be important." Dr. Alan C. Purves of the University of Illinois, author of the literature education re- port, said his 10-country sur- vey demonstrated that schools did not play a prominent role in determining literary inter- ests. He added that the ability to read literary text did not significantly vary from the ability to read other materials. His researchers also learned that schools in different coun- tries indoctrinate students to view literature text in a par- ticular way. In England, stu- dents engage in discussions on how the work personally af- fects them. In Sweden the em- phasis is upon historical con- tent. "In Chile, aesthetic consider- ations prevail, While in the United States lessons and val- ues are derived from the works" he said. The LEA which is support- ed by UNESCO, the United States office of education and three foundations, is intended to provide a link among na- tional education research or- ganizations that carry out on- the-spot testing in consultation with the I.E.A. experts. DISTRICT CREATED Ungava, a district of the Northwest Territories, was cre- ated by an order-in-council of the Canadian government in 1883. Night-worker law changes coming CALGARY (CP) Labor law changes to protect the per- sonal safety of emoloyees working late-night shifts are still not ready for approval, says Alberta Labor Minister Bert Hohol. The minister said he is not sure that requiring at least two clerks on duty in all night grocery stores and the setting of minimum ages would pre- vent robberies and violence. The matter arose last June when a 15-year-old clerk at a late-night grocery was shot to death and the store robbed. "We've got to try and make sure that once night shift regu- lations are in firm shape we're really going to remedy the sit- uation and not just penalize people." A coroner's jury recommend- ed the extra clerk and the mini- mum age of 18 for at least one of the clerks but this has been opposed by service stations and all-night grocery owners. They argued they would lose money because of the extra staff required or they would have to close after normal hours. The minister said the jury recommendation are still being considered.
