Mrs. Forest, who taught school at Swan River, Man., for four years, succeeds John V. Murphy of Westlock. She was vice-president of the associa- tion, which represents 50 Cath- olic School boards, last year. BOARDS NEED HELP Delegates were told the Cath- olic school systems in Alber- ta's major cities must be pre- pared to support boards in smaller systems if these boards are to survive. During a panel discussion on the future of Catholic education in Alberta, George Brosscau, Edmonton separate school board chairman, urged the ma- jor boards to assist smaller boards by providing in-service training for teachers and trus- tees and through a general sharing of. resources. Mary Green, Calgary sep- arate school board trustee, agreed, adding that the small- er boards must be Milling to participate in any such pro- grams. CLOSE GRADES Mrs. Green said the Calgary board intends to close certain grades for a two-day period of intensive in-service training for teachers and smaller boards must be pre- Six Women Sentenced For Arson NELSON, B.C.

Pauline Hadi- kin, 60, also of the Agassiz camp, was sentenced to 18 monlte.

"I am going to haie lo im- pose sentences will discour- age others from doing Ihe same pared to follow despite the fact some parents may object to any school closing. Bob Part, a University of Al- berta student, said the trustees were "sopping out" by not stressing the "Christian atmo- sphere" which sets the Catholic school system apart from the public schools. He said trustees should he lobbying for more university courses aimed at preparing for assignments in separate schools.
