Doug Walker, president of the local chapter of Uie society told The Herald, "One of the rea- sons we are sponsoring the for- um is the basic split in our membership when considering the issue of the death penalty."

Divided year debated EDMONTON Alberta's school trustees neither endors- ed nor rejected the idea of divided school year of two equal semesters during the Al- berta School Trustees Associa- tion annual convention in Ed- monton. A resolution presented to the convention calling for a divided school year of two equal semes- ters and a break at Christmas was tabled for further study. Several delegates expressed concern over starting school too early in August to allow for two equal semesters. The Ed- monton Public School Board has already announced plans to institute a divided year over a three-year period which would see school start Aug. 5 and end May 20 in 1975-76. Lethbridge is still the only school district in the province now operating on a divided year concept starting school Aug. 22 and ending June 7. Al- though there are different num- ber of days in the two semes- ters, it is balanced out by hav- ing a slightly longer instruction al day in the first semester. Lois Campbell, first vice- president of the ASTA, said the fixing of dates would bo up to individual boards and they would still be free to retain the traditional school year. 'Trustee low man EDMONTON A proposal that schaol board elections should he held at different times than cly council elec- tions was rejected by delegates to the Alberta School Trustees Association convention here. Supporters maintained that the school trustee is low man on the election totem pole be- cause all the attention is grab- bed by the mayoralty and coun- cil contestants, and trustees ere just an afterthought. "It makes good sense." said public school Irustee. "In Cal- gary we are completely sub- merged in elections. We arc just leftovers." Delegates representing small school boards expressed con- cern about the cost of holding separate elections. At the pre- sent lime each school district bears a small share of the over- all cost of civic elections. But ir own elections they would have to bear the entire cost which could cause serious ec- onomic problems for small rur- nl boards. One rural trustee expressed concern with the divided school year concept citing it as im- practical for the rural situa- tion. He said starting school earl- ier would create too much of a hardship for our rual districts and lengthening the school day would "leave us in a straight- jacket of time." Following approval of a mo- tion to table the resolution, Scott Saville, Calgary public school trustee commented "Why don't we table the whole bloody convention." A resolution to seek a change in government legislation to give Alberlas Indians Ihe right to choose their own school dis- tricts received approval from the convention delegates. Art Bunney, county of Flag- staff trustee, said it is time In- dians were given the same treatment as everyone else. "We have been trying to make them into little white In- He said. "We are not trying to tell them how to run their own affairs. We just want them to be treated the same as everyone else." Present regulations prohibit Indians from forming their own school jurisdictions. Harald Gunderson newly re- elecled ASTA presdent, labell- electel ASTA president, labell- ed the resolution "dogoodism." He said Inlians attending schools in Calgary arc happy with the present system. It was pointed out that such a move would simply allow In- dians to form their own juris- dictions if that is that what they want. The convention also endorsed a proposal to rrganize seminars with Indian groups in both Northern and southern Alberta to discuss Indian education with particular ernphasis on pro- grams and problems. 'Provincial share no later than usuaP By GREG McINTVnE Herald Legislative Bureau EDMONTON Municipal Af- fairs Minister Dave Russell said Tuesday that the City ot Lethbridge will know at least as early as in past years what the provincial contribution will be to its annual budget. Replying in an interview to concern by City Manager Tom Nutting about the uncertainty of the provincial contribution to the city's 1973 budget, the miniser said: "We will get preliminary budget guidelines out to the municipalities by the end of the year or at the very latest very, very early in January." A complete new provincial finance policy is to be presented in final form to the spring session of the legis- lature. Mr. Russell said "We reco- ognize the problems municipal- ities are having with planning their budgets because we are having the same problems this yea- with our provincial bud- get." Any change in provincial grants will be compensated in other areas in the new formula, he said replying to fear ex- pressed by Mr. Nutting in a Herrald story last week that the grant the city received this year might be cut consid- erably. THIS YEAR This year the provincial grant represented about eight per cent of the city of Lethbridge's operating cost. Mr. Russell said the figure will bi. meaningless in the new formula. A legislative committee head- ed by Rov Farran (PC-Calgary North Hill) will begin next month final preparation of ths new finance plan, he said. About copies of on Aug- ust interim of the com- mittee were sent to municipal officials, Mr. Russell said. The committee has received comment from the Alberta ur- Wiudow peeper sentenced six months William Rodney Hyde, 28, of 1114 24th St. S., was sentenced to six months in jail Monday when he pleaded guilty to two charges of trespassing. The charges resulted from in- cidents at an apartment at 2703 Scenic Drive and at a private residence in the 1100 block of 23rd St. S. Police said at least one charge involved window peeping. too Curriculum changes in edu- cation should take the form of more humanistic, less techni- cal approaches to learning, says Dr. Jolm Hunt, professor of education at Missoula Uni- versity in Montana. "We should not rely so much on statistics and manipulation in learning we should stress the interpersonal approach be- tween student and he said in a Lethbridge interview. He said he favored a type of humanistic, individualized i n- struction which dealt with each student on the basis of his needs and abilities. "Individualized he said, "does not mean one student sitting alone in a room with a teacher. If you take into account individual differences, you can implement individ- ualized Instruction within a classroom of 25 students." The professor said another confusion exists between "open space" and "open concept" in- struction. "Often you can have a very static program operating with- in a modem open area class- room. People appear lo have adapted the open concept but have not. The open concept it- self is a frame of reference, an altitude which can often operate within a very tradition- al setting." Dr. Hunt was in the city to lecture at the University of Lethbridge seminar series on curriculum and innovation. He visited classrooms in Taber and Cardston as an observer in the company of university edu- cation faculty members. Warner mother of four tvins art grant Workshop Dorothy Peterson of Warner is one of 50 AlberUns to re- ceive a study grant in visual arts and crafts this year. Mrs. Peterson and John Dom- ier, both University of Leth- bridge students, won grants tenable at the U of L. Art professor Heh Hicks said that only a lew of that value were presented. Most were for and Professor Hicks was a member of the selection commitlce for Ihe awards, sponsored by the provincial department of culture, youth and recreation. Mrs. Peterson is a mother of four and an art major in her third year at the U of L. This is her first year as a full-time student Keenly interested in ceramics and collages, she is currently working towards a bachelor's degree in fine arts and is study- ing other subjects as well as art. "People keep asking, 'what's a middle-aged lady like you do- ing in said Mrs. Peterson. "And I say I'm hav- ing a marvellous lime." "I don't inlcnd lo become a teacher. I Just love the atmos- phere, Ihe learning I enjoy my art and find all my oilier classes stimulating loo." "My husband thinks it's just she said. Mornings, Mrs. Peterson gets her household (including four children aged 20, 10, 14 and 11) organized and commulcs from the family farm near Warner to her lectures at Ihe U of L. ban Municipalises Association and the School Trust- cas Association and will hear from Ihe Alberta association of municipal districts and count- ies at the AAMDC annual meet- ing next week, he said. Mr. Russell advised observ- ers not to draw conclusions about the final finance plan yet because It Is likely'to take most of its term in the next few weeks. Reacting lo Mr. Russell's comments city finance director AllLstcr Findlay today said, "It will help Iremendously" In formulaling next year's operat- ing budget to have provincial guidelines by Ihe end of 1972. Those guidelines wijl show what the province Is going to finance in local programs in piece of providing Ihe munici- pal assislance granl, Mr. Find- lay said. With the the final mill rate could be determined before March, the previous tar- get dale, Mr. Findlay said. Would you believe Insomnia-thon The members of a local, ficially end Sunday at 3 p.m. youth service club are planning to stay awake all weekend to make money. They will participate in an Insomnia-thon, which, they ex- plain, "it like a wa'k-a-thon except you try to stay awake. The longer you stay awake, the more money you earn from a sponsor." The 22 young men, all Leth- bridge Collegiate Institute stu- dents, belong to the Key Club, a youth counterpart to the local Green Acres Kiwanis Club. Club President Steve Cooper says beginning Saturday at 9 a.m. members will begin their weekend without sleep in the new gym at the LCI. It will of- Steve explains that the suc- cess of the project depends on the sponsors. And so far spon- sors are few and far between. "We were hoping to raise about SI .000 for the war ampu- tees, We are doubting now whether we can raise that much." So far the club members have been seeking sponsors among their LCI school friends. But this week they are planning on getting more ambitious. Steve says the club is think- ing of approaching the mayor and city aide-men and asking them to sponsor club members or even to get them to par- ticipate by staying awake. Park official warns hunters Anyone hunting along the boundaries of Waterton Lake National Park should be aware of the special regulations, warns A. D. Adie, park super- intendent. It is the hunter's responsi- bility to make sure his firearm is completely unloaded and sealed so its mechanism can- not be worked while within the boundaries of the park. Self service gun sealing stations have been set up at each park entrance. wounded animals are not to be pursued into the park, the park. "If a wounded animal does flee across the park boundaries the nearest park ranger should be notified, and he will take the appropriate says Mr. Adie.
