And, said Alberta Teachers' Association President Ivan P. Stonehocker, it is likely that the next year will see the start of several court cases to deter- mine how to interpret clauses in the new act. Mr. Stmehocker was speak- ing to the annual meeting of the County of Lethbridge ATA local Wednesday m'ght. ____ BOYD'S PHARMACY ITD- Next Phon, 328-3740 Foil Office Servio Prescription Servici Max Factor and Du Barry Cosmetics Free Delivery 9 a.m. to 9 p.m Monday thru Friday Saturday 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Closed Sundays and Holidays He said that while the Leth- bridge Medicine Hat school wards' new employers' associ- ation was not in keeping with best bargaining methods, he was happy some bargaining re- gions were being formed. "It would be a good thing for some region to go through the whole system of regional bar- Mr. Stonehocker said. "But that means going through all bargaining not just sal- aries, but working conditions "I think they'll find that the time factor involved in getttai all of the groups together, and problems in gaining concensus for their proposals will be too Mr. Stonehocker said. "It will kill the idea if every one sees the problems one re- gion has." He said there had to be full understanding that working con ditfons were no longer legall: under jurisdiction of the schoo boards: the new School Act and Labor Act specify that they are SMILEY'S PLUMBING BASEMENT BATHROOMS REMODELLING Phone 328-2176 legotiable. Many of the changes n the new act have also made negotiation of particular work- ing conditions necessary. Some boards, he said, are try- ng to avoid discussion of any sacher working conditions, and are planning to retain their old :olicy books concerning them. The ATA has directed all of its locals to form their own re- la'onal groups to match any formed by school boards, and will demand that all matters in- cluding salaries, fringe benefits and working conditions be spell- ed out in contracts this year. Mr. Stonehocker added that a regional contract could not log- ically have local differences in it to accommodate what school boards claimed were different local conditions: "That would become a hope- less mess a cafeteria con- tract where you picked what- ever you wanted from the shelves, and ignored everything he said.

GEORGIA FOOKS Mrs. Georgia Fooks is recip ient of the William Aberhart Gold Medal and Scholarship i Education offered by the Leth bridge local of the Albert Teachers' Association, and val- ued at She will also receive he bachelor of education degree "with great distinction" sig- nifying a straight-A at the U of L Spring Convoca tion Saturday. Prior to her U of L educa tion, she studied journalism for two years at Brigham Young University, leaving BYU to re- turn to Lethbridge to raise her an 18-year break in her university training. During that time she hosted local television program calle aiid won a Libert Magazine award in 1958. She enrolled at the U of n and has been activel involved in the faculty of ed cation's special activities in eluding its English Educatio Centre, a travelling trailer-lab oratory. He' suggested a better system would be for the Alberta Schoo Trustees' Association to which all boards belong to employ a fleet of prcfessiona negotiators as the ATA has done, and send them out from their head office in Edmonton to locals who were having ne- gotiating difficulties. Mr. said vha education needed in Alberta was not regional bargaining but a more reasonable system of teacher board committees formed on a local level to dis cuss all matters relating to ed ucation, not just teacher sal ties. He said an example of how successful a teacher board committee can be is the Leth bridge divided school year pro- gram, which was entered into only after extensive meeting: which included parents aw teachers as well as school trus tecs. Mr. Stonehocker said the new School Act has paved the way for improvements in education "if all parties on the local leve can agree about the matters they discuss." But if they can't which he said he expects will be the case strikes and other prob tens will develop: "There will be either chaos or confronta lion and neither will serve educ a t i o n to its best advan- tage."

The Indians of Alberta are roving they are the most pro- gressive and best organized na- tive people in Canada, he said. "The major factor in the leadership bsing taken by na- tive people rests with com- r for effecting a II-------- tegration of Indian and white communities. "The important point is to make sure the Indian is running the show." This holds true for native friendship centres', which Mr. Cardinal said are too often "set up to help Indians, but are being run by white people." He said the constitution of the Lethbridge Friendship Cen- tre is good because it keeps the Indian in the driver's seat. The constit u t i o n stipulates the board of directors and general membership must have a ma- jority of Indians. 100 DROPS More than 100 drops of sap are emitted, each minute, from a tapped maple tree.
