Accidents involving damage and injuries to firefighters and the general public could resull 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. Lelhbridge was plagued by six false alarms in a two-hour period lasl night. Fire Chief Wilf Russell said Monday night's false nlarm problem was the worst he had seen since he became fire chief. In the picture above city police potrol sergeant Ed Potts questions a 10-year-old boy who was a prime suspect. Afler the boy was released only one more false alarm occurred. Making a false fire report is a summary conviction and a guilty person is subject lo a maximum of 1wo years in jail, a fine of up 1o or bolh. -Walter Kerber Pholo School trustee 'low man' on totem By RON Herald Staff Writer EDMONTON The school trustee is low man on Ihe edu- cational totem pole and if cer- tain trends continue, he could disappear altogether, .said Hev.

"In Ihe past, we have been too much concerned with the physical aspects of education rather than with Ihe kind of educftlion our children need." He said the job of develop- ing the philosophy of education lias been handed over lo "high- ly-trained educators" instead of remaining in the bands of the people involved in the grass roots of educations. "The teacher is the very key to good education and Iheir 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 educalion as a vital issue. "These are our children, it is our money. It is vital that this man terms is evident today.

The Saskatchewan S c li o o 1 Trustees1 Association urged tlia 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- menl to educational objectives has not been sought. j "Commitment can only come through broad public involve- ment in goal the as- Eociation said. "If education ib to secure continued support from tho public, it must make a concert- ed effort to consult the public in regard to its expectations of the school.'

"Educational goals h a v e been debated widely in educa- tional circles but retain an aura of mystjcism 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, Hie school was relatively free from crilicism 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- ships existing among varia- bles.

The plan was submitted by the police department as a con- fidential document. No details will be available until the pro- vincial government approves the plan. Police Chief Halpli Michelson has indicated the cily does nol need such a plan now but Ihd his department .should know where help will come from if i! is needed. 0 n other business, council approved a budget for the city's part as host of this year's Alberta Urban Munici- palities convention, to be held Oct. 24 and 25. Cily will still pick up garbage Garbage collection will re- main a function ol the city and the sanitary' landfill operation will be taken over by Aneca Construction Ltd. of Lelh- bridge. Cily council made that deci- sion Monday following the rec- ommendations of the city engi- neer. Council had previously asked that lenders be called for gar- bage collection to be done by a private firm, partially as a base to compare with the cost of Ihe cily operation. Two bids were submitted: Dominion Waste Management Ltd. for per month; Dispose All Services for 850 per month. The estimated cast for the cily 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- pected to be achieved by the replacement of equipment by machines which require one less man each lo operate. Another factor was the re- luctance of the private firms to lease or purchase the city's collection equipment.

The council meeting next will befiin one hour earli- er than usual, at p.m., so thai persons wishing to ap- proach council on any matter may do so.
