Teachers today are coming up rith many new concepts to pro-note this" idea, and in the for-eeable future, will handle nuch of the guidance counsel-tag in reserve schools. Gaining acceptance by the students is the key to any guidance counselling program, he aid. Speaking to a workshop group of 30 members of the Al-wrta Indian Educators Association, he said the background of each student must be known jefore effective guidance pro-rrams can be accomplished. "We as teachers, who know the students needs and prob-ems best, can handle the situa-ion he said.

Field trips to various indus-ries, resource speakers Drought to the schools and com-jnehensive audio-visual presentations will be necessary for teachers to bring the awareness of the people to an acceptable level.

Dr. Hawthorn classed essen-al elements for the reality of re classroom as: motivation and values of students and acher, structures of relation-lip and the processes of inter-ction and results in the form learning. He said the teacher must ask himself what do the stu-ents want, to what will they respond in a way that ensures heir learning, what is taking in a lesson and what are he results in order to teach He said many questions enter le scene when dealing with ndian schools and the answers an only be approached by the eacher who becomes the an-iropologist, studying the learning of the children in the class and his own teaching one who becomes a participant-bserver in his own classroom. Some of these questions in-lude: well does the teacher mow the cultural background of the student? the teacher know his wn social class and cultura rientations? the teacher deal suc-essfully with children of differ-nt achievement levels? the teacher exercise authority because of knowledge and expertise, or because o wsition? the teacher have the needed .emotional, control to show affection and disapprov al as they are called Given Remand Joan Agnes Bayon, chargec with two counts of non-capita murder, appeared in ma-n'strate's court in Edmonton JYiday and was remanded for urther psychiatric examination. Miss Bayon, 24, has been charged with the Sept. 2 death of two-year-old John William Jotton, son of Mr. and Mrs. Wilf Cotton of Lethbridge anc the March 23, 1967, death of five-month-old Andrew Green. The Green baby's mother, Stella Green, left the city in 1967 anS her last known address was in Hong Kong. Miss Bayon is scheduled to appear in. court in Calgary Oct. 15 at which time her case is expected to be remanded again for a court appearance in Lethbridge Oct. Ur To Rei By HERB JOHNSON Herald City Hall Reporter Mayor Andy Anderson said Friday it was not possible at jis time for the city to accu-ately assess the impact of the ost of Lethbridge's secondary sewage treatment plant on the domestic user's service charge. Just what the increase might >e, or if there would in fact" be one, could not be determined at his time, he said. The residential sewerage service charge was raised this year from 60 cents a month to il a month and industrial iharges were similarly raised so the sewage treatment process could be operated similar ;o a utility instead of being by taxes. To maintain this utility basis and to help pay for the secondary treatment facilities, service charges for industry will be increased, by an amount yet to be worked out. It is considered very likely a similar increase is in store for iie domestic user. While it has seen intimated that this coulc result in a charge of to a month, this figure has no' been confirmed. Tom Nutting, city manager, said there is "no doubt" the cost of sewage treatment is go-Ing to increase as far as the city is concerned, but "everything possible" is being done to keep the cost to Ihe taxpayer and to industry to a minimum. There are several variables ii the situation which could affec the new sewage charges that are being worked out. Mr. Nutting noted that Ab sidential ie city definitely has the capacity to cover the ost of the facilities, financing irrangements have not all been vorked out. The cost of the noney borrowed will affect the otal cost of the faculties to the ity which, in turn, affects the charges required to pay for the }lant. Another factor, he said, was he effort put forth by local industries to install equipment hat would cut down the load 3 u t on the sewage treatment system. A lighter, more uniform load could, he said, result in reduced charges. Ted Lawrence, city engineering said it was too early to say just what kind of equipment might be Cost Sewer I scussions with industry, which ave been progressing for the ast few weeks, were still in IB exploratory stages. There was concern, he said, mt sewage charges for indus-iy not become so heavy that ley would be unable to eomr xie economically with similar irms in other centres. At the same time, said Mr. Nutting, part of the discussions with industry had been devoted to giving them an Hike Jsers understanding of the costs in-olved. Representatives of the eight oeal industries the city has >een negotiating with have been 'very he said, and had indicated their willingness to assume a fair share of increased costs. The goal of the city's efforts, IB said, was to keep the rates as ow as possible for all concerned, but to assign most of cost to the users who placed the leaviest demand on the system. Mr. Lawrence said that while talks with industry had been making "good things had not reached the point where enough was known to formulate a new domestic service charge. Mr. Nutting noted that the talks were still technical enough iat a meeting with industry Oct. 26 in the Yates Centre would not be designed as a public forum. At the present time, he said, :he immediate problem was how to pay for a service designed to bring the sewage system effluent into line with government-set levels, rather than the problem of pollution as such, Mayor Anderson said that while "we're all interested in pollution a forum on the subject at this time would only confuse the issue. Charged For Drugs Four people were arrested Friday in Medicine Hat and charged with possession of narcotics. Arrested were Donald Nell Morrison, 19, Ordean John Larson, 25, Michael James Tomlin-son 17, and1 Raine King Troupe, 23.

Mr. Diaz outlined several methods teachers can contribute the guidance program, including; a knowledge of facili ties, materials, and personne available in the school and com munity to further guidance pin-poses; identify students with instructional and personal prob lems early in their academi training; assistance for students with special problems which are .beyond the scope of classroom teachers, increased emphasis on prevention of Guinea Needs Vnd adds up to more than they can count on their fingers and toes it is simply regarded as On the other hand we constantly think in terms of numbers. "We watch the clock ,time our toast and our eggs, compare prices and so on. But the natives there don't even have three meals a day, so that when a patient at the hospital is advised to take a pill after each meal, he can't follow this simple order. Therefore we have to tell him to take a pill when the sun gets up, when it's over head, and when it sets. As the climate is tropical and unchanging lie is able to follow this pattern, but if it rains and there is no sun, then he is in trouble." HOSPITAL BUILT 1930 The hospital the Driedgers were at was first built about 40 ago but was destroyed during the Second World War. It was rebuilt again and is one of the largest on the island. They also have a school of nursing with approximately 60 native students drawn from across the island. "It is a very well organized Mrs. Driedger snid, "and when thn graduates go out into the island they naturally take with them a modern way of living which affects the villages in which they rcsirli> They gu back into the bush, marry, spread their new-found know! edge in their communities.' Superstition and witchcraf are still widely practice throughout the island. "There is a gallery in the hospital whic allows relatives to watch opera tions, and they can see fo themselves that the doctor are not in competition with the witch doctors."

"T h e Canadian University Services Overseas (OUSO) program has .now adopted this country as one of its new fields, and experts in medicine, agriculture and engineering, as well as teachers would be doing a service if they volunteered their assistance for a couple of years." Dr. and Mrs. Driedger returned from New Guinea ir June after a year's sabbatical during which Dr. Driedgsr, ai orthopedic surgeon volunteered Ms services at a Lutheran Mission Hospital near Madang. "Mission work in under-developed countries is vastly Mrs. Driedger said "In New Guinea alone, the work done by the various denominations through missions has helped the people tremendously." New Guinea, llic world's second largest island Hi is lies about 100 miles from the Australian mainland, and just smith of the equator. The western portion of the .island is administered by Indonesia, while eastern New Guinea is administered by Australia. Total population is about 3 million people. "There is the hope that the island can become self-governing by Mrs. Driedger said, "but that may be a false hope. Education has been slow in developing and only about one quarter of the people have had any schooling at all." The idea that primitive countries do not want any change in their cultural patterns was not borne out by the Driedgers experience. PEOPLE MATERIALISTIC "The people are quite Mrs. Driedger said "and have a keen desire to overcome poverty and disease two factors which plague them continually. But they have little concept of how to organize routine tilings we take for granted. For example, (hey have always been farmers with a specialty f o r pig-farming. However, they let the pigs roam and don't pen them up and feed them as we do in more profitable agricultural areas.
