Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 1, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta r, 1, 1975 THE ifTHMIDOl HMALD 41 That's the feeliug in Indian Bangladesh to have democratic constitution TASK COMPLETED Alberto Government Telphones has completed the seemingly impossible task of plowing a 16-pair communications cable down the precipitious slopes of the West Castle ski resort, near Pincher Creek. Trw buried cable will several purposes. It will provide electronic liming for ski races, carry music and public address messages and provide the ski patrol with instant reliable communications in case of ski accidents. The buried cable will also preserve the beauty of London school protests mount Mothers chain themselves to railings of county hall LONDON (AP) Mothers chained themselves to the rail- ings of the county hall hours. Others locked a school la official in a classroom for a day. Scores of families were re- ported to have their chil- dren to private schools from the stale system. Parents of 50 chil- dren organized their own school in a neighborhood church hall. TTie protests were against the schools assigned to children under a system partly designed to mix students. The idea was to move some bright students to schools with a poor reputation, sometimes called "kitchen sink" schools. This was in- tended to improve these unpopu- r schools. At the same time, not-so-bright and "p r o b 1 e m" students were put in better schools with the hope of improv- ing their standing. Until this year, London par- ents were allowed to select schools. If they didn't get the first choice, they were allowed a second or third. The teachers decided students' acceptance or rejection. Some schools built a reputa- tion for scholarship. Others, By RAM SUNDAR CP Correspondent BOMBAY (CP) There Is quiet satisfaction in India that the new nation of Bangladesh will have a democratic consti- tution on the Indian model. the Bangladesh Constitu- ent Assembly began its his- toric session in Dacca re- cently, political and diplo- matic observers in many Asian capitals were struck by two things. First it is considered re- markable that the Constituent Assembly should have been convened within a year of the birth of the new nation. An achievement which would be noteworthy even under nor- irial circumstances has been made more so because of the terrible carnage which marked the advent of this in- dependent land of more than 75 million people.

PEARSON ALMOST CONCEDED TORONTO (CP) Former prime minister Lester Pear- son almost conceded to the Conservatives as results came in for the federal election, Senator Keith Davey recalled Monday night. Davey said that at one point, Pearson, dismayed hy the results, rose from his ho- tel chair in agitation. But Mr. Davey said Mr. Pearson's wife, Maryon, seized him hy the arm, say- ing: "You can't concede to that awful man (John Dle- fcnbnkerV Mr. Pearson, who had called the election on the is- sue of needing a majority, sat down agm'n, Mr. Davey said. The Liherals ended up with 131 seals, just short of a ma- jority. The Conservatives won ft? seats.

Robinson wanted a 700-acre site where he could work freely with his ex- tensive menagerie of wild ani- mals and erect a 60-building pi- oneer village for use as a set in filming in his next movie, The Legend of Grizzly Adams. PLANS SNARLED The village would later have been opened as a tourist attrac- tion. Robinson said the lands and forests department snarled his filming with red tape and over- ly-stringent controls on move- ment and use of wild animals and in selection of filming sites, lie said it is much easier lo make films in British Columbia.

Politics played role. The London education board, La- bor-dominated, favored what Britons call big schools somewhat on the North American co-ed style, de- signed to break down class bar- riers, with some students plan- ning to go on lo university and others not. Many traditional parents and prominent Conservative party members preferred the old grammar schools, which pre- pared top students for universi- ties. Those without university hopes went to other schools, usually to learn a trade. London's schools are a mix- ture of comprehensives and grammar schools. The compre- hensives are a mixture of good and bad. largely because of lim- ited facilities and staff. WON'T SEND CHILDREN That's part of the problem. Some parents object to any comprehensive school. Others say comprehensives are great providing their children have a good one. i This year, instead of letting parents have their way, the board told- them they could ex- press one preference. Children who failed to make that school I would he assigned to the i board's choice. About 40.000 11-year-olds were j involved, moving up from the primary school system. Some 35.000 got their pre- i ferred school. About I didn't. Of these, about 1.600 refused the schools assigned them. In the first month of the j fall term, most of these have been satisfied' But more than 300 families are keeping chil- dren out of school. "The principle of a balanced education system is a good one." said one disgruntled falher. "But, in practice, it means a bright, lively child who can pick up facts quickly is held i back at the pace of a slower- I learning class." A mother observed: "You can find child who has been mak- ing good progress acquiring habits such as smoking or gam- bling in these lower schools, simply because this is what the other children do." The education authority told the "rebel 300" still refiu- ing to send their children to the assigned schools that they may select any school in London with a vacancy. The board will pay the child's bus or subway trans- port The snag Is that almost nil the choice schools no va Rahman says nearly three million people were killed dur- ing the freedom struggle and about half a million women raped and otherwise mo- lested. Ten million people fled to India, while another 15 mil- lion moved about from place to place within Bangladesh because of fear. The second most notable thing about constitution-mak- ing in Bangladesh is its com- mitment to democratic princi- ples. The 153-clause draft consti- tution bill presented by Law Minister Kamal Hossain says that the guiding principles of the new Asian nation will be democracy, socialism, secu- larism and nationalism. BANS FORCED LABOR The draft provides for an independent judiciary, funda- mental rights, freedom of reli- gion, the right to property, free movement and free speech and forced labor. prohibition of The draft bill says it is the fundamental responsibility of the government to provide the people with the basic necessi- ties of life including food, clo- thing, education and medical care. It promises a "radical transformation" of rural areas through tbe promotion of an agricultural revolution. Observers have taken note of the promise of social secu- rity envisaged in the draft constitution. The Parliament of Bangla- desh will have 300 members, with at least 15 seats reserved for women. Prime Minister Rahman has said that the work of drawing up the constitution will be completed as soon as possible so that Bangladesh can have its first democratic general election. This is an- other promising aspect, espe- cially in the light of allega- tions made by some political groups that Rahman and his Awami League party are only interested i n monopolizing power in their hands. THREATENS AGITATION Observers do not see any difficulty in the Constituent Assembly adopting the draft constitution without any major changes. But (rouble is not entirely ruled out. Already, Maulana Bhashani, the leader of the pro-Peking leftists in Bangladesh, has threatened to launch an agita- tion if the Constituent Assem- bly "rushes through" with the draft constitution. Bhashani has questioned the right of the former East Paki- stan members of the Pakistan National Assembly to consti- tute themselves as the Con- stituent Assembly ef Bangla- desh. Perhaps the biggest lur- prise made by Bhashani Is his demand that Bangladesh should be basically an Islamic slate rooted in Islamic lav. This is seen as an attempt In stir up religious feelings against the constitution-mak- ers. Bhashani told a public rally that "if Prime Minister Rah- man ignores the of Moslems, there, will be an- other Vietnam in Bangla- desh." Though Bangladesh is a pre- dominantly Moslem country, observers are confident that Rahman will be able to push through his plan for making the country a secular state with equal rights and oppor- tunities for the followers of all religions.
