The ASTA will now approach -the provincial government to encourage it to establish programs of teacher education to assure teachers are capable of instructing family life education in schools. Some trustees argued fami- ly life education should re- main in the home and teachers should be given more courses on how to teach reading and writing rather than family-life education. Trustees were also asked to consider the extra expense of adding extra courses to the teacher training program before they cast their vote in favor of family life education in the schools. An Edmonton public school board trustee said the teacher training Hospital plan dispute erupts PINCHER CREEK Tempers flared at a special attended by 75 peo- ple and called by Mayor Juan Teran here last when the St. Vincent's Hospital board squared off against the medical staff over plans to renovate the hospital. The doctors want an entire- ly new hospital. The board wants to renovate the east wing and build a new west wing. No cost estimates were released or discussed One private citizen said the doctors want more active care beds because it more money for Hospital board member Frank Fry accused Mayor Teran of his nose in everywhere He said a great deal of work has been done by the board in preparing plans for the hospital renovation and he is of the doctors bucking MLA Charles Drain caution- ed those attending the meeting to think carefully before throwing out the board's plans because money will go Mr. Drain said the Alberta Hospital Commission allots active treatment beds at 4.5 beds per thousand population. This is where many here feel the present or a renovated is not go- ing to be big enough to serve the district. The area served includes the Pincher Creek Peigan Indian Reserve and Cowley and includes about people. The said Mayor was to be a but it turned into something else. It developed into a sounding board for two sides of the hospital controversy. Mayor Teran had his hands full to keep the meeting under control. It was evident the doctors do not go along with the hospital board's plans for renovation of the present hospital. The present hospital has 56 active treatment beds but no long-term beds. There is no pediatric facilities. The doctors want more ac- tive treatment beds. They want a pediatric treatment unit and they want long-term beds. The renovation plans call for 35 new active-treatment beds and 15 auxiliary beds. This is the plan of the advisory board of the hospital. T. V. board says this is what the Alberta Hospital Commis- sion has come up with and this is what Pincher Creek should accept. The medical staff wants a new period.

Ir- ving program at universities was expanded this year to a four year program and the univer- sities cannot afford to further expand their programming at this time. The debate became heated when a trustee suggested family-life education was really sex education. Family-life education is more than sex said a trustee in support of the motion. It is designed to teach students how to co-operate and communicate within the family and community set- he said. The meeting was told the government must become in- volved in this issue because smaller school jurisdictions do not have the funds or per- sonnel to adequately develop curriculum programs in family-life education. The trustees also un- animously agreed that schools should teach all important aspects of health and family life responsibility and not just sex education Such a program would meet the health needs and problems of students and it would also prepare them for their role for future parents and citizens. A few trustees were also very outspoken about school curriculum ignoring the theory of creation where the origin of life is involved. There is no mention of the creation theory in the science and biology text books. All emphasis is placed on the theory of they argued. School text books give the impression the creation theory is only followed by fanatics and no consideration is given to the of who come from homes that believe in the religious theory of claimed a trustee during the discussion. The it was would encourage its member boards to provide in the curriculum equal opportunity for study by students of both the creation and evolution theories. Colony school proposal persecution9 CALGARY Forcing Hutterites to provide their children with the same educa- tion as other children receive in the province is religious a Pincher Creek school trustee told the Alberta School Trustee Association convention here Tuesday. Joan Turcott urged trustees to defeat an motion by a central Alberta school board which suggested Huttente School vote for Indians tabled for more study I CALGARY A motion re- questing changes in the Alberta School Act to allow status Indians the right to vote in school board elections was tabled for further study Tues- day at the Alberta School Trustees Association conven- tion in Calgary. If there are of status Indian children attending school in a school jurisdiction near the then the people of that reserve should be per- mitted to vote in the district's school board said the Pincher Creek school division's board who spon- sored the motion. Opposition to the motion suggested status Indians should not be permitted a vote because they don't reside within the boundaries of the school district and as a result do not have to pay taxes and face other responsibilities of the citizens who live within the school jurisdiction. Art of the Willow Creek School said he was not opposed to Indian representation on his school board if the federal and provincial governments can reach a solution on what responsibilities will be includ- ed with the right to vote in school board elections. Pincher Creek school board informed the association that close to 10 per cent of its school population came from the Peigan Reserve and the parents had absolutely no say in school policy. The Pincher Creek board granted the Indian people the right to have a non-voting representative on the but because he does not have a vote the Indian people feel G under son re-elected CALGARY Harald Calgary public school was re-elected Tuesday to a third term as president of the Alberta School Trustee Association at its annual convention here. The election was forced to a fourth ballot when Mr. Gunderson and Sue Wear- Calgary separate each received 310 votes on the third ballot. Gunnar chairman of the High Prairie School Division board in northern and Carl Lethbridge school were eliminated in the tint two ballots. It just was not a day to remember for Mr. Johnson as he also failed to obtain the first vice presidency of the ASTA. He was nominated for first vice-president following his defat as a candidate for the presidency. Art of was named vice-president and Dr. Audrey County of was declared tecond vice-president by ac- clamation. AH terms are for one year. their views are not really represented in school board policy decisions The department of Indian affairs does sponsor students attending schools off the reserve and consequently many parents living on the Peigan Reserve are sending their children to Pincher Creek because they prefer the educational opportunities offered m its Pincher Creek board members told the Herald. Since high school education is not offered on the Indian students are forced to attend non-reserve schools when they graduate from the Indian schools. The ASTA in 1972 took a stand in support of the forma- tion of school districts by In- dian organizations on the reserve In 1971 the ASTA urged provincial and federal governments to attempt to reach a solution on the ques- tion of Indian education that would be satisfactory to both levels of government and the Indian people. children be provided with the opportunity to receive a more advanced education. The Hutterites now do not permit their children to attend school beyond Grade 9. The sponsors of the motion also claimed a one-room school for nine grades is not an acceptable learning situa- tion and the government should be made responsible to improve the situation. Mrs. Turcott questioned the motives behind the motion. Did it really have the Hutterite people in she questioned. Before the association takes a stand on Hutterite education it should find out what the Hutterites want for their said Mrs. Turcott. She claimed it is the Hutterites belief that at age 15 their children must leave school and take on an adult role in the colony. Carl Lethbridge also spoke out against forcing the Hutterites to send their children to school beyond Grade 9. Hutterites have lived up to their to this nation without completing secondary or post secondary he suggested. Education takes on many different forms and to the Hutterites education must be a practical form that can be used to develop the Mr. Johnson said. The trustees defeated the motion.
