Back Nov. 15 Closing of shops bylaw is under way Elementary education needs money By ItlClIAIlI) HUKKK Staff Writer For a moment, it appeared city council would pass a new closing of shops bylaw Monday night, hut the mailer was in- stead tabled for cnnsideralion at a closed meeting of the committee of the whole Nov. 15. Because the bylaw was not on the agenda, council was re- quired to unanimously agree to even consider it. Such agree- ment was followed by passing of the first and second read- ings of the bylaw, which went unopposed. The bylaw was brought up with some urgency caused by the content of a letter to coun- cil from John Loewen. store manager of Simpsons-Sears- In that letter. Mr. Loewen re- quested council to repeal the existing bylaw and allow busi- nesses to' regulate their own hours. That request in itself was not too startling. However, Mr. fore council at the beginning of givo the J a r 'he meeting with several revi- wish. sions 10 a similar document the Another change council members had received week; council being undesirably pushed into quick aeiiun. One of the revisions allows shops to lemain open Wednes- day until either p.m. or p.m. Aid. Vatlghan Hem- hroff said it was ludicrous to have both limes specified in the bylaw. their would allow qutomobilc d e a 1 e r s, mobile liome sales lots and motor ve- hicle dealers to remain open until 11 p.m. each weekday. Aid. Vera Ferguson said slie would not IK threatened into making a hasty decision. Aids. Hembroff. Bill Kergan and Chick Chichester agreed. All members of council were present for the meeting. Council approves rary S Allied arts i seeks seat The Allied Arts Council exe- cutive drafted a letter at its Monday meeting recommend- ing that the ccimeil have rcpre- sentation on Ihe new communi- ty services advisory committee. The letter will go to Dick Mells, city superintendent of I recreation and culture, lo he passed along lo Bab Barllelt, director of community ser- rices Dr.' Keith Lowings, AAC president, expressed satisfac- tion wilh the city's new ndmini- slraiive st: up. which, he said, gives the AAC good communi- cation links wilh the adminis- tration. There v.as a genera! feeling, however, that since the AAC represents :sii city groups, it; should he directly represented j on the advisory committee when it i.s formed. By RON CAU1WEU, Staff Writer CALGARY More money is needed for elementary edu- cation in Alberta, Ray Clark, outgoing president of the Al- berta School Trustees' Associa- tion, said Monday. Mr. Clark told 700 delegates attending the association's 65th annual meeting in Calgary that this does not mean money should be taken away from ju- nior and senior high schools to meet the need in elementary education "We are losing sight of what is happening in elementary said Mr. Clark. "There are children leaving elementary schools who c; even read." He said elementary school students are being "bunched together with 30 or 40 young- in a room it is like an assembly line more than an educational institution." .Mr. Clark said there is too much stress on content in edu- cation: "We arc making little ma- chines out nf these people. We should be teaciiing them how to enjoy life. We are pushing stu- dents too fast." Mr. Clark also said there should he closer scrutiny of I new teachers entering tire edu- j cational "We should be getting teach- ers who are teachers.

Three seek presidency CALGARY Three candi- dates are in the running for the office of president of the Alberta School Trustees' Asso- ciation. Outgoing president, Ray Clark, of Burdett, Harold Gun- derson of Calgary and William Pcnrose of St. Albert were nominated for the position dur- ing the opening session of the association's annual meeting in Calgary on Monday.

The convention decided that adding a separate ceo logy course would be "adding to the present mosaic of unrelated subjects." In its first day of dealing with the more than 70 resolu- tions, the association also voted to urge the department of edu- cation to endorse the develop- ment of religicus studies at all universities in the province.
