Accidents involving damage ond injuries to firefighters and the general public could result from such a false call. While answering a false fire alarm a firefighter vehicle and its men may not be available to answer a real fire call, tethbridge was plagued by six false alarms in a two-hour period last night. Fire Chief Wilf Russell said Monday night's false alarm problem was the worst he had seen since he became fire chief. In the picture above city police patrol sergeant Ed Potts questions a 10-year-old boy who was a prime suspect. After the boy was released only one more false alarm occurred.

School trustee 'low man' on totem By RON CALIWELL Herald Staff Writer EDMONTON The school trustee is low man on the edu- cational totem pole and if cer- i tain trends continue, he could disappear altogether, said Rev. Don McLennan, president of the Canadian School Trustees' As- sociation, to 500 delegates at- tending the association's an- nual convenlion. "We have to justify why we are he said. "In the past, we have been too much concerned with the physical aspects of education rather than with the kind of education our children need." He said the job of develop- ing the philosophy of education has been handed over to "high- ly-trained educators" instead of remaining in the hands of the ocople involved in the grass roots of educations. "The teacher is the very key to good education and their roles should be determined by the local trustees working in consultation with the teacher, the administration and the de- partment of education." Rev. McLennan zeroed in on local control of education as a vital issue. "These are our children, it is our money. It is vital that this an terms is evident today.

CHARLTON and HILL LTD. 1262 2nd Avc. S. Phone 328-3388 Certified LENUOX dealer EDMONTON One of the major reasons for public hos- tility against education is that the public has not teen allowed to play an important enough role in setting goals for educa- tion, delegates to the 19th an- nual convention of the Cana- dian School Trustees' Associa- tion were told Monday. The Saskatchewan School Trustees' Association urged the 500 delegates from across Can- ada to take into account what the public, which is footing the bill, wants from its education- al institutions. "One of the reasons that the public is disgruntled with edu- cation is that public commit- ment to educalional objectives has not been sought. I "Commitment can only come i through broad public involve- ment in goal the as- sociation said. "If education is to secure continued support from the public, it must make a concert- ed effort to consult the public in regard to its expectations of the school.- Failure to do so will result in constant criticism of the schools from the people who support them." The Saskatchewan associa- tion said the task of setting ob- jectives for education has wrongly been left in the hands of top-level committees, Royal ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC Bldg. 222 5th SI.

"Educational goals have been debated widely in educa- tional circles but retain an aura of mysticism for the layman." The report cited over-all eco- nomic problems of the country as one of the major factors in the growing d i s satisfaction with education. "As long as jobs were avail- able, the school was relatively free from criticism and could go on and on without extensive self-evaluation." The Saskatchewan group told delegates that the primary ob- jective of education is to pre- (lie individual for a ships existing among varia- pare "sound, fulfilling life, no mat- ter what he docs." "Tomorrow's education should make the scholarly world accessible to the child and prepare him for lifelong learning. Students should have knowledge of communications systems which we use to relate to each other. They should have a broad overview of the many fields of knowledge de- veloped over the years. They should be able to organize ideas, to analyze and synthe- size, and to develop concepts from basic facts. They should have a thorough knowledge of modes of inquiry and be able to identify relation- hies. They should be acquaint- ed with broad philosophical schools and be able to discuss issues in a rational manner. They should have the basic skills necessary lor productive learning and thinking. The school should open as many doors as possible for its students and not steer the stu- dent into narrow fields from which he may never escape. "The school of the future should also make the student aware of the values and norms of society, not for the purpose of indoctrination but rather to form the basis for rational questioning aud action." Student views important EDMONTON The views or students will carry more weight in education in the next 10 years. Lou Hyndrnan, Alberta minister of education predicted Monday in an addrcs lo the an- nual Canadian School Trustees' Association Convention. Mr. Hynclman said the input of students will be fell lo a greater degree but that the de- cisions will still have to he made by the elected officials.

City council made that deci- sion Monday following the rec- ommendations of the city engi- neer. Council had previously asked that tenders be called for gar- bage collection to be done by a private firm, partially as a base to compare with the cost of the cily operation. Two bids were submitted: Dominion Waste Management Ltd. for S15.545 per month; Dispose All Services for 850 per month. The estimated east for the city operation is per month. The decision to reject the two private bids was based partly on a projected 25 per cent de- crease in the city's costs by a reduction in the labor force re- quired over a five year peri- od. The labor reduction is ex- put i because of the referral motion. The petition was signed by 32 residents who stated the by- law, which restricts parking on their streets to two hours be- tween 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. daily and Saturdays, is "inconven- ient and costly." Alderman Bill Kergan con- ducted a survey of the area speci Aid. Kotch was asked, by a delegate, whether he parked in front of his home. He said "yes.'1 to which came the re- ply, "in that case, based on whal you have said, you I shouldn't be allowed lo." Aid.
