Ken Paproski (PC-Edmonton Kingsway) said many Albertans are concerned that schools bill French as the only second language. Mr. Hyndman replied that the language taught other than Eng- lish is up to local authorities. "The incentive should lie with the citizens interested going to their local school board and suggesting that there is sub- stantial interest in the com- munity perhaps for a petil- tion that a second or third or fourth language be taught whereupon the school board would design a curriculum and submit it to the department for the minister said. While French is the most popular second language, Mr. Hyndman said, three or four others are now taught in schools in Alberta and an application for Polish is being processed by the education department. "The provincial government doesn't directly encourage any student to take one language or he saidi later in an interview.

TAKE OVER The main recommendation o the Farran Report will be lo the provincial government t take over a larger share of th costs of health, welfare an education from municipal gov er.-nment, he said. The legislature is to act o the report at its spring session Mr. Farran said Municipa Affairs Minister David Husse: will likely issue a position pap- er on the government's propos ed legislation shortly aftei Christmas. The Fanran Report will rec ommend the province take ove 530 million worth of health, ed ucation and welfare costs cur rently paid for with local tax dollars, he said. AUTHORITY Nearly all responsibility for health and welfare should be assumed by the province, he said, but some authority fo education should be left will local government. While hospital boards of di rectors are mostly appointed positions, school boards are en tirely elected by the public, he said. "Local autonomy in schoo matters is an important issue.' He promised special consid eration will be given in the re- port to grants in the form o cost-per-mile of district road to rural communities in recogni- tion of the costs they bare to maintain roads over large reas. The Farran Report will rec- ommend annual budget in- crease guidelines and penalties [or municipalities who exceed the inflation guidelines, he said. GRANTS There will also be grants based on financial need, he added, in an attempt to equal- zc some of the difference be- ,ween rich an'i noor conununi- ies. He cautioned the public against drawing conclusions yet about what's in store for muni- cipal budgets, saying that gov- ernment ministers have reconr mended changes to information that appeared in an interim re- port released Aug. 15. In the past 10 years, almost every province In Canada has had a committee looking into axation, he said, "and most zeroed in on property taxa- ion." He said the problems the oo large burden of costs car- ied by municipal government are well known but the diffi- culty and the main job of the 'arran Report has been to try o find solutions. There will be recommenda- ions to get more taxes out of gas plants, pipelines and other o-ms of commercial and in- dustrial properties, he said. For JUST ARRIVED- NEW SHIPMENT!

"We cannot offer the two de- gree programs side by side without changing the charcter of the U of L as it now The present 40-course pro- gram could be completed in 214 years, Dr. Beckel added. He said it Is vital that the U of L convince the universities commission that the proposal for a 30-course degree pro- gram be withdrawn. "I'm optimistic that we won't j be required to offer the 30- course he said. "All evidence we have today indicates that the majority of students at the U of L are re- markably satisfied with the 40- course program and can see its value.
