HUGH VERNON-JACKSON past basic needs Swifts' Manage Named J. F. Gough has been named manager of the Swift Canadian Co. Ltd's. new plant being built at Lethbridge. Mr. Gough has been manager of the firm's Maritime region and meat packing plant at Moncton, New Brunswick. He began his career with the Swift company in Edmonton in 1946. He has held sales, beef, lamb and veal general man- agement positions in Edmonton, Calgaiy, Toronto ana Moncton. The announcement of Mr. G o u g h's appointment was made at a press conference in the city's Economic. Develop- ment Commission office this morning. By WILSON Herald Education Writer International aid for devel- oping countries is becoming in- creasingly complex because the countries are becoming more selective in their re- quests, Dr. Hugh Vernon-Jack- son, director of the Canadian Inter national Development said here Wednesday. Dr. Vernon-Jackson is a fea- tured speaker at the three-day con ference on international teacher education, sponsored by the International Council on Education for Teaching, in co- operation with the University of Lethbridge. He said the multiplicity of both aid programs and public and private organizations in- volved in them has completely changed the international aid situation. Most developing countries have now developed to the point where they don't need the basic teachers and advisors "we've been sending them by the barrelful. "When we nominate some- one for a position they've re- quested us to fill, they now look at his qualifications and if they aren't extensive enough they now say 'No thanks, send us someone Dr. Vernon- Jsckson said. "And this is good it shows tiiey've become more sophisti- i cated, and it means we have to change CIDA." Teachers in the technologies, commercial education and bus- iness management are in heaviest demand today, along with personnel who can teach building trades. "What they definitely don't want is teachers of political science or history, because they have their own people now, who can interpret things from their countries' point of Dr. Vernon-Jackson said.

IETHBRIDGE aid have also been changing: various types of "experts" in construction, agriculture and other areas are not always noted and the countries are starting to look at the amount of money Canada spends in sending them these personnel and saying they'd prefer the cash to build a library and to use their own experts. Material aid has improved recently, Dr. Vernon-Jack- son said, since the federal gov- ernment has -freed CIDA to supply non-Canadian goods to them. Previously, regulations have required that all material dona- tions to developing countries should be primarily Canadian- made, which he said impaired most aid programs needing other ?oods. CIDA now spends about million annually, of which only about million is spent on personnel. The agency seeks trained vol- unteers in many and they are carefully screen- ed to see they ars qualified and will fit in with the particu- lar society of the country they will be sent to. Of 500 English-speaking and 500 French-speaking Canadians in foreign posts arranged through CIDA last year, Dr. VernonJackson said, only 10 didn't work out mostly due to "cultural shock" reactions when they couldn't cope with the radically different culture they- found they would have to work in. CIDA is constantly concern- ed about the suitability of the people it sends abroad: "a pro- gram of international develop- ment can be wrecked by the wrong choice of he said. "People involved in interna4 tional development and inter- national education programs have the duty to be' cultural integrators, and to avoid being cultural attackers. "They should become in- volved in the culture in which they are living, and not feel they are missionaries filled with zeal and selling their own country's culture as something belt Dr. Vernon-Jackson said. CIDA, he said, is constantly re-evaluaSug its activities, and it has support from all provin- cial (tepariments of education, from universities and from Ca- nadian e d u c a tional associa- tions, "channel the bulk of Canadian The agency also hopes to expertise in the best possible Way into international develop- ment and through careful liaison and teamwork with the countries with which Canada has aid agreements. Much of this work, he said, involves co-operation with uni- versities in the countries being assisted, and "sharing in plan- ning of programs between our- selves and the recipient coun- tries, which are then given a chance to make their informa- tion contributions to us." DR. FRANK KLASSEN future arrives early Today's Violence A Hint Of What Looms In Future The violenLe and irrational- ity of today's world may be just a foretaste of what lies ahead, an international educa- tionist told 70 delegates to the conference on international teacher education here Wed- nesday. "The overwhelming rapidity of social change taking place in the world today has created a new international neurosis: fu- ture shock, the dizzying dis- orientation brought on by the premature arrival of the fu- said Dr. Frank Klassen, executive director of the Inter- national Council on. Education for Teaching. And this "future shock" may well become one of the most serious problems education must soon cope with, he said. Dr. Klassen was represent- ing the ICET in opening the three-day conference, which it is sponsoring in co-operation with the University of Leth- bridge. The only way to avoid this unpleasant future, he said, is to learn to understand it, and to treat it through a modern edu- cation system. Efforts so far in this direction have been unsuc- cessful because they were "childlike and ineffectual." He suggested a much more rapid social reaction must be developed to deal with the pres- sures for change that face so- ciety, or democracy will crum- ble. On a worldwide level, Dr. Klassen said, a unity of pur- pose is developing among va- rious peoples, societies and cul- tures, aimed at accomplishing common objectives particu- larly the eradication of disease, illiteracy and poverty. Internatonal education pro- grams are one route to solving these problems "but the pro- grams must take into account a RUMMAGE SALE Sponsored by the DR. F. H. MEWBURN O.B.E. CHAPTER, I.O.D.E.

As the developing nations in the "afflicted" half of the world recognize the relationship be- tween an educated population and the quality of lite in the country, they are demanding more and better education hi international aid programs of- fered to them. However, Dr. Klassen said, the current unrest on univer- sity campuses in the world's developed countries "is a par- tial product of an education system that may have gone awry, and which may be irrel- evant to the future." This means a better and at the same time more relevant education system must be de- veloped to protect tke world's population from "future Dr. KJassen said. And this requires educationists from both developed and devel- oping nations to work together. The ICET hopes its activities will help to build a worldwide teacher education community whose co-opc-rativs efforts will provide the teacher for today and for tomorrow.

PHONE 327-2822 MFC Approves Distillery., Hotel Project Tabled The Municipal Planning Commission Wednesday ap- proved two major development projects and tabled a third for further consideration. Given approval was an ap- plication by International Dis- tillers and Vintners Ltd. to build a distillery and maturing plant in the city's industrial park. The proposed location is ac- tually outside the city limits, although annexation of the area is under way, and the County of Lethbridge is, to be advised of the application. The land is owned by the city. Approval is subject to the submission of plans for the de- velopment, which, in turn, is contingent upon the firm re- ceiving a grant under the fed- eral government's area incen- tives program. The distillery is expected to cost several million dollars and make a significant con- tribution to the local economy. Also given formal approval was the city's secondary sew- age treatment plant in the riverbottom, west on 9th Ave. N. Work on the million plant is under way. Site prep- aration work started last week. Tabled for a week was the proposed million. Lethbridge Treadway Inn. The major stumbling block concerned traffic flow in the area 2nd and 3rd Avenues and 7th and 8th Street S. Tlse developer and city de- partments are to meet to resolve problems involved in providing access to the two- level parking structure without interfering with traffic. The commission's heavy sginda included a number of smaller items, including one from Trailbridge Enterprises to distribute cosmetic goods from a home at 2622 21st Ave. S.

Arts Council Seeks ,700 From City The Allied Arts Council of Lethbridge is expected to ask city council for ?1700 which the city cut from it 1970-71 AAC grant apparently because of a misunderstanding. The city normally gives the AAC a .year, of which is administered by the arts council for the operation of the Bowman Arts Cer.tre, and for managing a sum- mer cultural program at tte centre. This year the arts council, which comprises 26 member groups, also received a. grant from the provincial cul- tural development branch. Un- like the city's grant, the pro- vincial was to be used by the AAC for sponsorship of cultural events. The Bowman Arts. Centre fi- nances and AAC's own money are kept by the arts council in separate accounts. A meeting Wednesday be- tween the Allied Arts Council and two of the three members of city council's cultural affairs committee indicated the for the summer program had been cut because of the provin- cial grant. Alderman C. W. Chictester also suggested council had un- derstood a city grant for the community summer program had included adequate.funds for the AAC's summer schedule. Aid. Vera Ferguson said coun- cil figured the cut in the grant had teen acceptable to tire arts council since the AAC had not raised the issue. If the arts council needed the grant, "we thought you'd be back for it." Dr. Keith Lowings, president of the arts council, said the Bowman Arts Centre account be in the red" if the summer program money was not available. The summer arts program, started in 1964 by the arts council, attracted 280 children this year and employed four in- structors, plus ths facilities and members of the Oldman River Potters' Guild. Heat Halts Beet Harvest The hot weather has brought a halt in the southern Alberta sugar beet harvest, as precau- tions are taken to ensure beets do not rot in storage piles. D w i g h t Purdy, Canadian Sugar Factories Ltd. manager in Lethbridge, said about 000 tons of beets, acres) have been delivered to country collection points, enough for a 12-day run at the Taber and Picture Butte factories. Both plants began- operations Wed- nesday. "We couldn't allow the build- up to said Mr. and the weather will have to cool before the harvest can resume." There are acres of sug- ar beets in southern Alberta this year. The harvest should be completed, weather permit- ting, by the end of October. Planning to Install NEW TIRES SOON?
