Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 16, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIDCC HERALD Thunday, Nevimber 16, "72 C of C tables wildlife issue A provincial request to rec- ommend a method of paying for new fish and wildlife habitats was tabled by the local cham- ber of commerce directors Wed- nesday Several approaches were dis- cussed by the directors, but none were formally approved. Ossie Stubbs suggested that since everyone shares in the tourist dollars attracted by hunting and fishing, money from the "general coffers" should pay for renewing mid- life habitats. A subsidization to farmers for raising game birds on their property was the approach taken by Dr. Clayton Carney. A committee of chamber members had been formed re- cently to come up with specific recommendations for board consideration: An additional fee to be paid by fishermen and hunters when buying their licences. paid by landowners, resort operators, guides and outfitters who benefii from hunting and fishing. fee assessments against land developers requir- ing the preservation of speci- fic areas for wildlife. Money from general taxa- tion revenues, which would as- sure that everyone in the prov- ince, including photographers, campers, tourists and hikers, would pay for new wildlife habi' tats. The subject was first brought up by the local chamber when it was realized there are less game birds and fish in the area now to attract sportsmen. Ownership issue debated A lengthy discussion by chamber of commerce directors on foreign investment in Alber- ta industry ended with no con- clusions Wednesday. The severity of the foreign ownership issue was seriously questioned as a legitimate con- cern, however. The main concern, said Rex Little, is to create opportuni- ties for people to stay in the type of environment they like. Whether it is a foreign own- ed or Canadian owned com- pany that offers that opportunity is of less importance, he said. Dr. Russell Leskiw said, "The foreign ownership quest i o n doesn't bother me as long as it doesn't interfere with the na- tional foreign policy." Trade with China, for exam- ple, was stopped for 20 years because foreign owned com- panies didn't approve of it, Dr. Leskiw said. John Boras suggested the fed- eral government charter a na- tional bank along the lines of the Alberta Treasury Branch to fin- ance and assist local industry across the country. That would increase the incentive to remain and grow, he said.

Emergency ward visits skyrocket over five years More than people flock- ed to the emergency depart- ments of the two city hospitals for medical care in 1971. Of those, says the adminis- trator of the Lethbridge Muni- cipal Hospital, Andy Andrea- chuk, "It's no secret that 80 to 85 per cent" were people who didn't require emergency treatment. It's all part of a North Amer- ica wide trend that began in the 1960's. In 1968 in Leth- bridge, for instance, there were about visits to hospital emergency wards almost half the 1971 figure. What's behind it? Mr. Andreachuk points to the federal provincial medicare scheme, one of the most com- prehensive and expensive health care insurance schemes in the world, as the major stim- ulus. Medicare gives people the idea medical care is free, says Dr. Michael Pratt, chairman of the St. Michael's Hospital emer- gency committee. "They sort of think that 'since I have paid my prem- iums, why not make use of it? It doesn't cost me a cent Dr. Pratt says. But the truth of the matter Is, he said, that the same rou- tine treatment costs four times more at the emergency ward than it would if it were given at a regular clinic. And it's the public purse, filled by taxes, that pays the bill. Oddly enough, another attrac- tion the hospital emergency wards offers is its easy avail- ability. Odd, because people can wait for up to two hours for non-emergency care at Leth- bridge emergency wards, The Herald was told. Still, says Sister Mary Chf- issa, administrator o f St. Michael's, "the emergency ward is virtually the only place for the public to seek medical attention after six o'clock, dur- ing the weekends and on holi- days." That's the one side of it. The other side of the modern emergency ward makes it a 24- hour stage for human drama. Suffering, frightened people arc rushed there for teatment that will save their lives. And tense and scared relatives and friends sit in waiting rooms that are filled with tattered maga- zines that nobody can muster the concentration or frame of mind to really read. Their think- ing is on the family member being cared for down the hall. And the medical staff. The doctors, nurses, nursing aides, orderlies and porters who spend much of their working days seeing so many complaining and genuinely sick and injured people they begin to wonder it anyone even outside the hospi- tal is healthy. ON THE DOUBLE A nune and a nursing aide rush a palient down the hall to hil room. His condition will be watched closely then he'll either be released or admitted into the hospital.

Educational goals 17 attend first meeting By LARRY BENNETT Herald Staff Writer The superintendent of Lcth- bridge public schools hopes the next meeting of the educational goals project committee will be better attended than the one held Wednesday night. Dr. 0. P, Larson voiced his hopes. following a meeting at Lakeview Elementary School which saw only 17 parents many of them educators and the 10 committee members at- tend. Wednesday's meeting was the first in a series of four aim- ed at getting Ideas from those who did not take part In a questionnaire on what the city's public schools should be doing. at the meeting were told the committee had been working on a way to find what the public thought about what the schools should achieve. The questionnaire was the cul- mination of Hi year's work by the 10-member group. Goals It is hoped that the results of the questionnaires and the inter-reaction sessions with the public at the meetings will help establish specific goals for the school system to achieve. The immediate goals of the project, was formally initiated with the circulation of some questionnaires in both a long and a short form- to randomly chosen parents of children in the public school system, are: to dispell the uncertainty which exists in the minds of persons about what education is supposed to do. to stimulate c o m m u nity involvement. to develop a plan zmd goals for the operation of the public school board in the fu- ture. to establish guidelines for the board, schools and the stu- dents. to evaluate the function o[ publicly financed schools. Stages The committee's overall plan consists of four phases or stages. Stage one already accom- plished involves the distri- bution of the questionnaires, their return and computer compilation of the data. Stage two which started Wednesday night consists of the presentation of the accumu- lated data to the public at four meetings. During the meetings more data in the form of re- action to the already existing information will be gathered for tabulation. Stage three will consist of the submission of briefs concern- ing topics raised In the first two stages. Stage four Is planned to be another series of meetings to study the submitted briefs and stimulate public reaction to them. The committee hopes to have all of the data studied and re- ports prepared for p-esenta- tion by the end of May 1973. Of the initial question- naires circulated, were re- turned for i 26 per cent reply. The committee told Wednes- day's meeting the sample of opinion collected by the ques- tionnaire was not meant to be representative of the entire dis- trict, and was, In fact, a sam- ple only of those persons who would return such a frx-m. Trends or attitudes indicated by questionnaire results were as follows: There Is strong opposition to evaluation of Lethbridge stu- dents by the provincial depart- ment of education, while local evaluation is strongly support- ed. The questionnaire group is not in favo: of cutting the num- ber of eleclives available to students as a means of reduc- ing educational costs. Nearly 85 per cent of all those responding were opposed to the idea. More than BO per cent of all those answered ranked math as the most im- portant subject, English was second, followed by science aid social studies. Strong support was shown for the use of additional re- source persons, without teach- ers and even outside school. One parent suggested teachers, as well as students, be exposed lo outside sources to broaden their sphere of ref- erence. Development of intellec- tual skills was ranked highly by all groups as a specific goal of education. Development of social skills was also considered a useful goal. The question of whether parents should become in- volved in a school council was answered unclearly by all groups no opinion Indicated. Free access Moderate support was In- dicated for a plan which would allow students free access to all school records pertaining to them upon their request. Students strongly support- ed the suggestion they be allowed to determine their teachers, educators seemed un- decided and parents and the general public expressed no opinion. All groups felt it was im- portant to establish policies to protect student's rights. There was general agree- ment to keep up the policy of busing students, when local schools became too crowded, as a way to keep taxes down, rather than increasing taxes and building additions to exist-1 ing schools. There was some support for a suggestion that students1 be allowed to attend the school, of their choice to receiyi courses not offered in their regular schools. (This program was placed in effect in Leth- bridge in A suggestion that school] in the city develop their own special educational programs was strongly supported by edu- cators but received very little support from parents. Special fees The trend was unclear about the suggestion special fees be charged for elective courses. Mild support was register- ed for closing down low enrol- ment schools as a tax saving measure. Students, parents and the general public strongly sup- ported a suggestion for allow- ing students to choose their own courses, educators only mildly supported it. Slight support was shown for keeping schools opgn 12 months a year. An undecided response was registered for a four-quar- ter school year in which stu- dents would requbed to take three quarters. 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. SPECIAL THURSDAY end FRIDAY "EMERGENCY" STRAP-ON CHAINS Regular 5.45 CHRISTMAS SAVINGS AT AUTO SUPPLY (1971) LTD. 421 5th St. South Phoni 327-4951 ;
