Find Out In The Herald's Next "CHINOOK" INCLUDED WITH THE TUESDAY, NOV. 28, ISSUE OF THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Third meeting gives 30 suggestions to public schools More than 30 different sug- gestions for improving the Lethbridge public school sys- tem were put forward at a pub- lic meeting Monday night. The suggestions came at the third of four such meetings call- ed by the public school sys- tem's educational goals com- mittee which is attempting to get the public's opinion on what schools should be doing. Some of the suggestions put forward by the 80 people who attended were in direct conflict person felt there should be more of a swing toward the old type of schooling with more emphasis on the three Hs and less stress on "frills." Another felt that there is too much regi- mentation and not enough con- cern with instruction in the arts and social sciences. Prominent among the other suggestions were that schools should have more concern for the gifted child, tetter training in English, introduction of French at an earlier level (the present level is Grade im- proved pupil-teacher ratio and more training for leisure time and cultural activity. And there was a question of whether schools are providing full value for the money. The meetings are designed as a followup to the educational goals questionnaire which is now being analyzed through computer facilities at the Uni- versity of Lethbridge. It is hoped the goals commit- tee will gain valuable feedback from the public meetings to go along with that which has al- ready been gathered by the questionnaire. Both the meeting responses and the survey re- sults will be taken into consid- eration when the final report is being prepared next spring. The report is to be turned over to the public school board in May. One of the more noteworthy facts about Monday's meeting is that when those attending broke up k> take part in small discussion groups, not even one of the 80 people at the meeting chose to discuss educational fi- nance w i t h the superintendent of schools, Dr. 0. P. Larson. Dr. Larson said he was some- what surprised that people didn't appear to be overly con- cerned with the cost of educa- tion. The final meeting in the se- ries is set for Dec. 2 at Senator Buchanan School. A public hearing on the pro- ject is planned for January be- fore the committee gets down to the work of writing its final re- port.

'Students in bars exaggerated? Peigan rep knocks attitude The watchdog attitude adopt- ed by the Lethbridge Indian Af- fairs branch over Indian stu- dents attending schools in Leth- bridge is poor, says a Peigan band councillor. Percy Smith, says a report published in The Herald last week, which suggests many un- derage Indian students frequent bars, is highly exaggerated.

Mr. Smith says students have enough sense to know where they can or can't go, and he doesn't feel its the job of the federal department to dictate to them. Mr. Van Cleve said his inten- tion was to ask the police for advice on what to do, and the police suggested the name lists. He said there are only a handful of young students drink- ing in local pubs, on a casual basis. These students, Mr. Van Cleve said, are not any differ- ent from the majority of non- native students. His inquiry was a "preven- tive measure" rather than a "corrective one." Otherwise, students could find themselves in trouble for illegal drinking, he said. Local drinking establishments have an "obligation" to check the identification of possible un- derage drinkers, Mr. Van Cleve said. No name lists have been re- leased to local inn-keepers.

The Peigans are attempting to solve the Indian juvenile de- linquent problem by revamping their social administration de- partment, he said. "If anybody gets to these kids it's our own Mr. Smith said' imply- ing non-native advice is not well-received by youngsters. Among proposals the Peig- ans, working in conjunction with five other Southern Alberta re- serves, suggest are a youth ranch, group homes, and other preventive measures commonly used in white society. Mr. Smith said the admini- strative reshuffle will change the overall outlook towards youth and others "which has been lacking to a great extent on our reserve in the past." Three cases adjourned until New Year sitting The schedule of this week's sitting of the Alberta Supreme Court in Lethbridge was dras tically changed Monday when three major criminal cases were set over to the January session. The trial of a charge of wounding with intent against John David Baird, 25, of Leth- bridge was set over pending a request that it he heard in a lower court. Mr. Baird is charged with shooting 20-year- old Jack Soltys during a party at the Baird home last April 15. Mr. Soltys died in Leth- bridge June JO.

FRI.

More time to gather informa- tion by both the Crown and the defense was the reason cited for the delay in the trial of a charge of "theft by a person required to account" against Hugh Llewelyn Graham of the Graham Collection Agencies Ltd. of Lethbridge.

City council has decided that from now on dignitaries and long-term city employees will receive a Fort Whoop-up flag instead of the traditional gold cuff links. will go it alone on increase By RICHARD BURKE Herald Staff Writer Three new administrative positions were created with the approval of city council Monday, hut only one new staff member will be hired. An assistant city manager, to be second-in-command to City Manager Tom Nutting, will be sought from outside city hall. A systems analyst- cost accountant and insur- ance supervisor-cost accoun- tant will come from existing city staff. Mr. Nutting requested more new staff than he got. Council balked at the thought of adding to in one shot to the payroll roster. A recommendation propos- ing a property administrator and secretary for the city manager's office was refused. A1 d. Vaughan Hembroff categorized a property ad- ministrator as a rent collec- tor. "We shouldn't have to pay up to for a guy to go around collecting rents. Let one of the local trust com- panies take care of it." Mr. Nutting suggested a property administrator would do more than collect rents. "There is million worth of city-owned property, both de- veloped and undeveloped, to administer. "We have flown by the seat of our pants and made may- be 75 per cent good deci- sions" on land sales and pur- chases, Mr. Nutting said. He implied a property adminis- trator could increase that batting average. NEEDED In a report to council, Mr. Nutting said new staff is needed to handle the in- creased workload caused by West Lethbridge and down- town projects as well as oth- er developments contributing to the citys" growth. At the meeting, he added another point. The directors and the city manager are get- ting "a little bit tired of the constant long days and weeks of work." "We're not doing a good Mr. Nutting said. Aid. Vera Ferguson said no one was complaining about the quality of the work. Mr. Nutting countered, "The only way things have been working nicely is be- cause everyone is putting in 60 to 70-hour weeks." The report included several recommendations for increas- ing the city's'office space and relocating various depart- ments. No action was taken on those recommendations. After going into secret ses- sion to discuss the personnel matters, council re-opened the meeting to pass the resolution creating the new positions. The systems analyst will control the city's information- al flow to data processing equipment and convert infor- mation concerning city busi- ness into computer language. The city does not have its own data processing equip- ment. The insurance supervisor will take care of claims against the city and keep in- surance records up to date. The city is now six months behind in its insurance rec- ord keeping, Mr. Nutting A request that the city sub- mit a joint brief with other Al- berta municipalities to the Pub- lic Utilities Board concerning the proposel power rate in- crease was rejected by city council Monday. Calgary Power Limited has served notice it will seek a 15 per cent rate increase. Public Utilities Board hearings on the request are scheduled between January and March. Council made its decision af- ter considering a confidential letter from City Manager Tom Nutting concerning negotiations between the tfty and Calgary Power. "We might tip our hand" by submitting a brief with any oth- er group, Mr. Nutting said. He suggested it might be more advantageous for the city to negotiate atone on the power increase. The request for a joint sub- mission came from the Alberta Urban Municipalities Associa- tion. City Solicitor John Hammond was scheduled to attend a pre- liminary hearing In Calgary today of Calgary Power's application for an average 15 per cent increase in power rates in Alberta. The Public Utilities Board preliminary hearing is design- ed to give interveners in. the hearing an opportunity to iden- tify themselves and ask Cal- gary Power further details on various items. At the close of the prelimin- ary hearing a date will be set for the actual hearing. A Calgary Power official said it is the first time in 61 years the company has sought a rate increase. Calgary Power reduced its rates in 1961 and 1965, he said. "In essence, Calgary Power will be asking that the 1965 rates be reinstituted. We'll be taking back the decrease grant- ed in 1965." The average 15 per cent in- crease, he said, will mean an additional cost of about a month for direct farm and resi- dential customers. The in- crease to Lethbridge homeown- ers, however, would not be as much because "we don't sup- ply the whole load to the city." said.

TEL. 328-0222 Fire loan approved City council Monday approved a loan for con- struction of fire department headquarters and training facilities at No. 2 Fire Hall on the north side. There was some question concerning the necessity of train- ing facilities for local firemen. Aldermen Steve Kotch and Vera Ferguson voted against the borrowing bylaw en that basis. Aid. Ferguson was skeptical about the amount of hours the training facilities would be used. Utility director Oliver Erdos said they would be used a few hours each day. Now, local firemen get their basic training at Lloydmin- ster, Mr. Erdos said. Once that training is completed, there is only limited on-the-job training here. With the new facili- ties, training would be "a continuous Mr. Erdos said. He added the lack of daily training has been considered by insurance underwriters as "one of the city's greatest defi- ciencies" when establishing insurance coverage. As a further justification for a training centre. City Man- ager Tom Nutting said rural community officials have request- ed the use of the new facilities here. Aid. Bill Kergan said, "It's true there's noi many fires here, but when we have one our firemen must know how to fight it." A majority of council agreed. The debate on the training facilities appeared lo be in- cidental. Mr. Erdos said most of the would be used in construction of the headquarters. Man remanded Maurice Crow Spreads His Wings, 22-year-old resident of Moses Lake on the Blood In- dian Reserve, was remanded in police custody until Wednesday when he appeared in provincial judge's court in Cardston Mon- day charged with attempted murder. Special Constable George Lit- tle Shields, 27, was released from hospital Monday after be- ing shot in the shoulder Sunday night while on routine patrol in a marked police car in Moses Lake area.
