Dr. J. S. Hrabi, director oi curriculum for the department, said that although the studies are new in the province, cur- rent social concerns about en- vironment have prompted _ the department's biology committee to initiate several new activ- ities programs. Dr. Hrabi said the activities should be outlined because "it was the opinion of some mem- bers of the committee that the department has done a sub- stantial amount of work in this regard, but news stories ap- pearing in the press seem to in- dicate that the department has been completely inactive." The department has distribu- ted a 14 page bibliography of conservation and pollution ma- terials to all elementary and secondary schools in Alberta. It has also set down objectives and suggested projects for the study of conservation and pollu- tion in Biology 30 (Grade 12) pilot projects and in Science 11 (Grade Be says the additional efforts to the field of conservation and pollution education have three broad objectives: make students concern- ed about the environment; involve them in activ- ities which result in an improv- ed environment; develop to students a! ier purification plant and sew- strong commitment to the idea age treatment plant are also of a healthy environment. recommended.

The new emphasis results from the work of a senior high school ad hoc committee for biology, which operates under the guidance of the senior high school science committee and senior high school curriculum board. The committee has represen- tation from the teaching profes- sion, the department o( educa- tion and education and science faculties at the university level. In Lethbridge, many schools have undertaken pollution and environmental study projects. Perhaps the most conscien- tious local project was under- taken by a Winston Churchill High School class last year, cul- minating in the widely ac- claimed "Dirty Old Man" report and a WCHS sponsored portion of a Pollution Teach-in, Other schools too have devel- oped extensive displays and programs, and particularly so- pastor New installation on Sunday Pastor H.

Several reports and com- ments from the floor empha- sized the need for better lines of communication with the public. and concern underneath the so me times m i s informed charges levelled by pollution groups. Involvement of the public beyond simply being informed and concerned was also a prob- lem, according to Mr, Martin. Qty plans to enforce street bylaw The city of Lethbridge has announced its intention to en- force a streets bylaw which prohibits signs, cars and other unauthorized items to be park- ed on city property without previous clearance, A city official said Friday the number of cases where the bylaw is being contravened is growing. Many of the cases involve signs or cars placed on boule- vards between business prop- erty and the sidewalk. Permit values for building boosted again Another major building per- mit in Lethbridge has pushed the total so far this year fur- ther ahead of last year's fig- ures, Laing Construction Co. Ltd. took out a permit this week for work on the city's secondary sewage treatment plant. At the end of October the to- tal value of building permits was million ahsafi of last year's figures for the same period and million greater than last year's figure for the entire year. The sewage plant permit, with a apart- There was a beyond The obvious problem of fi- nancing this type of activity was also brought out by more than one speaker. H. E. Martin, chairman of the Alberta government public- ity bureau said there were eco- nomic limits to what could be accomplished. The sub-committee on infor- mation and education had con- sidered a suggestion that infor- mation kits be supplied to ail students in the province, he said, but this idea had been re- jected because of the conscrva lively estimated at J D. Henderson, health min- ister and committee chairman, said that while much informa- tion was already available in various government publica- tions, there was a need to ex- pand information services when the new department of environment improvement was set up. He said Uwre was not enough staff at the present time to handle all the requests for in- formation and there would probably be a charge in the fu- ture for those retpirmg a search of the files. Problems resulting from this information gap were brought out by Joe Gurba, head of the pest control and crop protec- tion division of the department of agriculture. Mr. Gurba said there had been a failure to keep the public informed. Reviewing the use of pesti- cides in the province, he said there were no major problems and yet because of a lack of communication Hie public is concerned about inadequate controls over their use. Later in the meeting Dr. Paul Lewis of the University of Lethbridge defended the pollu- tion control groups that had generated much of the "hysteria" over pollution prob- lems, The hysteria is largely caused by a lack of informa- tion, he said, and would prob- which public interest drops be- cause of an inability to par- ticipate directly. He compared it with an au- dience being told about a new product but not being informed about where to buy it or what to do with it. Two injured as car hits guardrail Two people were injured and damage amounted to in a single-vehicle accident Fri- day evening on Highway 3 near the high level bridge. Police have not yet disclosed toe names of those involved, pend- ing notification of next of kin. The car apparently struck a guardrail took out several supporting poles and smashed into a cement pillar -on the bridge. The driver of the car suf- fered a broken jaw and otter undetermined injuries while a passenger received cuts to the forehead. Both are in Leth- bridge Municipal Hospital. rect a limitation which had been placed on support, primarily due to legislative wording. It will also standardize the am- ounts being paid to all provin- cial school boards in the two categories involved. Bryant Slringham, director of legislation and field administra- tion for the department of edu- cation, said the old regulations indicated that 90 per cent of costs would be paid, but the rale was tied to a "general averag- ing formula" involving the av- erage annual expenditure, over the. previous three years of oper- ation. Tte result was that most city boards were receiving only 40 to 45 per cent of what they ex- pected, and most rural boards only about 85 per cent. With the changes, both will receive 90 per cent of all expenditures, doing away with the averaging system. Under the new regulations, In cases where par.ents convey stu- dents to and from school or to and from a bus route, and re- ceive reimbursement front a school board, the boards will be supported by tile department at 90 per cent of their cost, up to a maximum of 22J cents per mile or per day for each day oi' transportation, which- ever is Isss. In cases where students re- quire special bus. transportation because of severe mental or physical boards will be paid 90 per cent support up to per day per student. Where students attend schools which require their absence from home, the department will now pay 90 per cent of the room and board rate approval by the school board, to a maximum of paid to parents for each day of maintenance. Boards will be empowered to pay as much as they want for transportation and maintenance but departmental support will still be pegged at a maximum of 90 per cent of approved costs. However, the regulations also allow the minister of education to authorize reimbursement at a higher rate in special student cases, at his discretion." ment block permit this week aid1 others issued this month, should bring the total for the a end of November to about filled.
