The item has been debated at lenglh for a number of years at ASTA meetings. And con- stantly defeated in fear that il would cost all school districts money because they would al be forced to implement local pre-school classes. However, the new policy calls for a flexible prc-schno' curriculum to be developed by he provincial department oi education, which the local wards, could ttien adapt to .heir mm needs and situations they wauled to. Rural school districts had eared a provincial kindergar- en would be of no use to them iccauso of their sparse popula- ions. If the department of educa ion complies with the ASTA equest, rural areas could ablish a network of smaller lighly-localized kindergartens n homes, churches or schools is best suited fo their needs. Larger centres could esiab- ish kindergartens ia similar acilities or co-operate with private kindergartens which already exist. The ASTA already has a pol- icy calling for establishment of a provincially-fmanced kinder- garten system, but the govern- ment currcnlly is not in favor of one. Monday, Education Minister Robert Clark reiterated previ- ous statements that suggest far more proof of the real value of kindregartens will be needed before his department will con- any trustee to serve on both a city council and city school board at the same time. Looking to the future, the sider providing the estimated trustees approved a resolution million-plus needed to es- tablish pre-school education. Some Injstees said pre-school education should be the re- sponsibiliiy of the provincial department of social welfare- hut other; suggested that wel- fare officials should have no place in this sort of education prosram. The more than 470 trustees in attendance also rejected a res- olution tbat would have lower- ed the age for legal qualifica- tion as a student to four years old. instead of six as at present. TAULE RESOLUTION They tabled a resolution rec- ommending Lhat all dislricts establish community advisory j councils for each school, such as has been done hy Winston o2 calling for the Alberta depart- ment of education lo institute a long-range transitional pro- gram to educate students to- ward everyday use of the metric system of weights and measures which will likely replace the current pounds and feet system within the next 20 years. Nixon Car Dents Proof Of Attack SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. (AI1) The U.K. Secret Ser- vice has exhibited denls in President Nixon's limousine as proof lli.it it was the target of a barrage by anti-war demon- strators during iiis appearance in Sen Jose Calif., last week. Lilhurn E. Boggs, assistant direclor of (lie Secret Service frr protective forces, said Tues- day the visible damage "could only have been caused by rocks or oilier hard objects." Arthur Godfrey, deputy spe- cial a g e a t in charge of presi- dential prolection, said that at a guess the vehicle was hit 10 times while running a gauntlet of missile-throwing dissidents.
