Public School Board Seeks Funds For Job1 Information Computer By JIM WILSON Herald Education Writer The Lethbridge public schoo board plans to seek funds from the Alberta department of edu- cation's innovative projects fund to establish mental computerized occupa- an expen- tional information system. The system which could cost more than would provide high school counsellors with instant up-to-date infor- mation tailored to the needs of individual students, show- ing occupational' areas open to the student and his .particular interests, knowledge and abili- ties. The innovative projects fund contains million, and the de- partment of education u s e s it to support 50 per cent or more of approved projects. An initial report was pre- pared for the board under su- pervision of University of Leth- bridge psychology professor oluucl. Dr. Stan Perkins, and Robert which the counsellor am Gall, the board's director school services. The system called a coi puter occupational informatio system would involve pr gramming into a computer the U of L all available d; about Alberta job opportun, ties, including job descriptio job requirements and expe- rience, occupational outlook f future advance, demand for tl job, salary potentials and sim ilar information.

He added that if it is implement ed as a regular part of the school system following the ex periment, it would likely be fi nanced primarily by the de partment of education. The board is also involved in another innovative projects ap- plication, with the Lethbridge separate school district. The study would involve system called Planned Pro- gram Budgeting, which is being co-ordinated by the department of education. The department will approve several of. the studies in different-sized schoo: jurisdictions including the mid- dle-sized Lethbridge area. PPBS involves allocation oi all school district funds through a computerized program which would keep a running record of all funds as they were spent, predict future trends in each Budget area, tabulate the mate- resources bought with 'unds and other money-man- agement activities now done much more slowly and less- horoughly (due to time) by humans. If Lethbridge is chosen as me of the PPBS areas, the two ehool districts will use the sys- em for their 1971 accounts.

The board also elected trus- Dr. Doug McPherson as ce chairman, and Mrs. ladys Redfern as its represen- tive on the Alberta School Yustees' Association south- estern Alberta (Zone 6) re- on. Trustee Carl Johnson is urrenf chairman of the Zone executive. Doug Card was named'as the )ard's representative on the 3uthcrn Alberta Educational elevision Association a posi- sn he has held since the asso- ation's inception three years o. The board no representative to the Leth- bridge parks and recreation commission, continuing its de- cision made last year. Trustees said there seems no reason to have their own representative on the commission. The. board also decided it needed no representation on the Lethbridge Association for the Mentally Retarded, as the rea- son for this representation in the past has been a liaison with the Dorothy Gooder School which the board now operates. Mr. Mont told trustees he had Found his year as chairman an "enjoyable and interesting ex- perience" and related several cases where other trustees and Ihe district's administration had "helped me out of sticky situations" including once when ho started to use an agenda from a previous meet- By STEVE BAREHAM Herald Farm Writer Ralph Effler, manager of lilydale Poultry Sales Ltd. in Lethbridge, said Tuesday he believes the country wide chicken and egg war is a tem- porary situation, adding that his company'is still in the go ahead stages of plans calling for. expansion of the Lethbridge plant. This statement follows one is- sued last week by H. A. Ruste, provincial minister of agricul- ture, when Alberta became the seventh province to impose poultry trade restrictions on its borders. Mr. Effler said Mr. Ruste met last wetek with B.C gov- ernment officials in an effort to reach soms sort of agreement with that province over the re- stricting, trade barriers. "It appears Alberta and B.C. may form a pact whereby trade would be carried out be- tween would movement in from the rest Canada. "If this said. Mr. Effler, "we could as proces- sors, be in as strong a position as ever." Lilydale and affiliated plants Ihroughout Alberta and B.C. process about 75 per cent of all wultry in the two provinces. A condition such as the above would in effect give them, a monopoly in the western poul- ry industry. Mr. Effler said he does not hink a situation such as this is right, but added that the course of events have not been of Lily- dale's making. Meanwhile it seems that Que- bec, the province which started the inter dumping in Septem- ber, is in pretty bad shape. "Quebec and Manitoba have in the past been purposely over-producing and now nith the trade restrictions in effect on almost all provinces, they have no place to ship their sur- plus." Alberta producers have still not really felt the effects of the war, said Mr. Effler, and prices paid to mem have been [very steady with the raceptlo of a cent per pound drop imposed by processors tr; ing to remain competitive.

Beet Harvest Stops Again The sugar beet harvest ha: once .-gain ground to a halt, as Canadian Sugar Factories Ltd plants in Taber and Picture Butte attempt to reduce stocks of sugar beets stored at the factories. Officials of CFS said this morning, that the halt is nee essary as the beets were severely damaged by frost Oct 7 and are now in poor, storage condition. It is not yet possible to fully assess' the damage to the sugar beet quality- No reopening date was an nounced for receiving stations but officials say a close scrutiny will be kept on conditions so the harvest can resume as soon as possible. The harvest now entering its 16th day is about 40 per cent completed. South Man h Awarded Grant School Board Meetings Scheduled Lethbridge pubic school board meetings wifl continue to be held on the second and fourth Tuesdays of every month, at p.m. in the board's offices at 433 15th St S. All regular board meetings are open to the public, with agendas, explanatory enclos- ures and ample seating made available to those who attend. Meetings are. generally over by p.m. or earlier. Trustees Tuesday discussed the possibility of reducing their meeting time to only once a month for the remainder of 1970 to see if the second meeting was necessary. However, most thought monthly meetings would only make their work less efficient and mean at least a month's delay between a request for a policy statement or decision and the action awaiting the de- cision. This would make ef- fective decision making diffi- cult, trustees said. Alberta producers are now paid 1914 cents per pound for broilers. Mr. Effler said pro- ducers could stay in business for a while at least even if the price was forced down to 17 cents. He does not believe this will happen. "The next price move will likely be he said, "partic- ularly if the monopoly situation materializes' "It is probable processors will have to cut back produc- tion 10 to 15 per cent from the end of November this year un- til next summer as inventories show that Alberta has more than twice as much stock on hand as it did last year at this time. pounds last year compared to pounds this "Production by next sum- Sir. Effler said, "should go back up to 100 per cent." Still no word has been forth- coming from federal govern- ment as the body with the le- gal right to control inter-pro- vincial trade, and it appears federal officials are reluctant to step across provincial juris- diction. "We are sffll, playing the si- tuation by said Mr. Ef- fler, "but at the moment, it seems the crisis will begin to level off."
