Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 13, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta ___. Friday, OctoW 13, 1972 THE LETHBRIDGE HIRAIO _ 15 Chanting students mob the Queen STIRLING, Scotland (AP> Hundreds of students shouting obscenities and chanting "mon- archy out" mobbed Queen Elizabeth when she visited Stir- ling University Thursday. Police, members of the royal entourage and correspondents formed a cordon to fend off the yelling students and permit the Queen to pass safely. She ig- nored a barrage of catcalls, jeers and oaths in scenes un- precedented in her 20-year reign. The Queen made the four- hour visit to unveil a plaque at the university, one of Scotland's newest. Students said they were de- monstrating against the cost of visit, charging: "The university has ignored student welfare over the past month while they have been organizing the Queen's reception." Al least 400 students joined In the melee when she arrived. Later detectives grappled with more demonstrators banging on the glass partitions of a ropnir where the Queen was talking with the university staff. As she left, students clam- bered over flower beds and cars, waving their fists at a royal party and singing obscene songs. They also tossed stenclv bombs and heaved empty beer cans at police. The Queen remained smiling and unruffled throughout.. One student said the ruckus was intended to be a passive sit-in "but it got out of hand." The Queen slopped to speak lo some students who lokl her the demonstration was not against her personally despite (tie proliferation of anti-mon- archy placards, Alberta teachers object to report EDMONTON (CP) -The Al- berta Teachers' Association said yesterday it diagrees "w i t h the implications made in Ihe Worth report on (lie future ol education in Alberta that the public education system is on the verge of catastrophe and teachers are responsible.'1 mcnl operated kindergarten system.

"The view h held that, liy the issuance of a certificate labelled permanent, the govern- ment has made a commitment lhat it will never cancel the certificate except for just cause1. To change the rules after the fact, would be re- garded by manv as equivalent to the renunciation of the pro- vincial debt" UNTENABLE APPROACH Murray Jampojsky, associa- tion president, said limited cer- Ufication is unacceptable in any profession and is "an un- tenable approach to keeping so- ciety stable.11 However, the association en- dorsed the establishment of the proposed educational and com- munity television network and modification of teacher certi- fication requirements for basic an aerly education. On the question of universal kindergartens, the brief, said, "it is our firm belief that early education programs should bo under the direction of quali- fied teachers and operated in schools. "The association opposes com- munity organizations and pub- lic bodies other than school boards operating early educa- tion programs." Alberta is the province in Canada without a govern- should be publicly financed anc independent of government and should have a permanent ad visory body composed of rep- resentatives of Alberta educa tional institutions."

A H-page summary of issues n the Worth report was issued o teachers' organizations and ntcrestcd individuals to aid [reparation of the brief, he aid. Mr. Brooks blamed the short- age of time for response and he complexity of the Worth re- port for the seemingly limited -esponse from the province's .eachers. He said comments were made >y 25 of the province's 74 iocal leathers' organizations, 20 in- dividual schools, seven indivi- dual teachers, and three spe- cialists' councils. He said, however, that the responses received indicated a strong consensus of opinion in supporting or opposing specific Wo'.-th report recommendations and the brief was representa- tive of teachers views.
