Herald Staff Wrilcr BANFF The classroom of the future musl become an en- trance into the world and not an escape from il, Dr. Walter Worth, deputy minister of ad- vanced education in Alberta, said Friday. Addressing delegates (o the fourth animal convention of Western Canadian education administrators here, Dr. Worth said the major concern of edu- calion in Lhe rest of tlus cen- tury must be "to (rain dividuals to master the changes that affect their own situalion. "Too often, we set out with noble goals of doing filings for people, bill fail to equip and en- courage them to act for the im- provement of their own said Dr. Worth. "To involve all our citizens in reshaping the educational system is the most promising road for education in the fit ture." Dr. Worth told delegates tha the emphasis must be placec on the concept of lifelong learn ing and work-experience. "The purpose of lifelong learning is total personality de- velopment. Linked to political change, the eventual outcome of this approach. to education would be more socially creative and individually satisfying so- ciety." Dr. Worth said people must have a part in determining our educational system. "They 'must be more than mere cli- ents. "In the remainder of this cen- fury, education must seek to develop an entire citizenry edu- cated to feel and act as well as think individuals educated lo courage. Reg Turner council speaker Reg Turner will be featured speaker at Thursday's meeting of the Southern Alberta Coun- cil on Public Mr. Turner is a recently re- tired principal of Winston Churchill High School and now a member of the Lethbridge public school board. He will speak on innovations in educa- tion. The meeting will be held from 12 to p.m. in Sven Erickscns' Family Reslaurant. The public is invited. "To make education morc're- lativc to actual life situations, schools should aim al involving students in real experiences and situations. "Schools must begin career discussion and orientation ear- he paid. "At Ihe intermediate level, Til students shoulrt have access o information on broad career nrcas. Investigation into reers should continue at the se- nior level. This should lie cou- >lwi with work experience for school credits and wages. 'The basic purpose of the career-oriented approach is to make all young people aware of the options available to said Dr. Worth. "Life experiences do not propose that nine-year-olds re- turn to the coalpits. "ft docs propose much more field experience in childhoo Mr. Bailey, director of the provincial waler resources di- ision, said even during the driest year in the last 20 years, 1.25 m'illion acre feel of water flowed by Lethbridgc and that per cent of the time, Ihe flow is greater than 250 cubic feet per second. Mr. Bailey suggested a ques- tion mark be placed at the end of the title: Crisis in the Old- man River. There has tieen no time wher irrigation farmers have had their waler rationed, he said. There seems to be sufficient water to meet our require- ments." FARM USE For farm purposes, as long as he amount of irrigated land remains under acres, ihere will no shortage of ,vater, Mr. Bailey said. In the St. Mary's River Irrigation Dis- .rict, which includes areas _.ound Magralh, Raymond and Taber, belween and 000 acres are irrigated, he add- ed. Our present situation does not allow us lo become complacent, however, Mr. Bailey implied. For the future, the yearly flow of water in the Oldman River system must be con- trolled. One way of assuring tliis would be to construcl what is called the Three Rivers Dam on the Oldman which could guarantee a flow of at least from the present 40 per cent. cubic feet oi water per One hundred per cent cfficl- ency, meaning no water loss, is impossible, he said. second past lie said. Mr. Bailey said there is no need to consider importing wa- ter into the area, such as by di- verting water from the Bow River, for "quite sometime." He suggested another assur- ance of maintaining water re- sources is to improve efficiency n the use of water. "We don't need lo spend great amounts of money on increasing facilities .0 increase inefficient watesr use." EFFICIENCY Egon Rapp, University of Al- berta professor in soil and wa- ter engineering, agreed more efficient methods of using wa- ler must become the standard practice. Referring to water for irri- gation. Mr. Rapp said new methods of delivering water to the fields could increase the efficiency to about Go per cent Measurement of water used is one means of increasing effi- ciency. Where the amount of waler is not gauged, efficiency drops as low as 20 lo 30 per cent, he said. LOW I'RICE Another factor causing ineffi- ciency is the low price of wa- fer, Mr. Rapp said. "When water is cheap, there is litllo attempt to use it judiciously." One method now being used successfully, is the optimum irrigating schedule which pro- vides liie farmer with such informalion as when lo irrigate and how much water U> use. Automaled irrigation also im- proves efficiency and reduces costs, Mr. Rapp said. The conference is sponsored by the Lethbridge Chamber o( Commerce.

Women have taken all those snide remarks you've made the contents of (heir purses for years. When was the last lime you examined your glove compartments? A reporter and photographer made an unbiased survey in the parking lot of a city shop- ping centre and discovered that not only do women collect less junk than men but what they do collect is much more valu- able. Men seem to have a notorious habit of keeping things "just in AGENTS FOR ALLIED VAN LINES Anglo Distributors SERVICE CENTRE 419 5th Street Soulh Phone 328-6661 NOW OPEN Government Licensed Technician Repairs lo Radios, Television ond Tape Recorders.

Besides the usual basics like insurance books and owners' manuals, a few interesting :iings v.'ere uncovered. IIIELLS, PANTIHOSE? Like shotgun shells and soap and pantihose. The temptation o ask Wendy Clark how such strange combination of ob- ects got together in a car was iretty strong, but the aim of the survey was not to cause embarrassment. There was evidence of a fa in- ly in P.uth Slobodian's car. At east she insisted the hockey eeth guard belonged to her son, not her. But the breath 'reshener was hers, and so was the licket for overparking. Cheryl Crowe claimed noth- ing but the rug samples in her 'love compartment, even .hough she expressed interest n the discovery of an antique hatpin. She disavowed all knowledge of the origin of a box of cray- ons, a muffler clamp, a dog chain (for which there is no car wax, brake fluid, golf lag and screwdriver. They were obviously her husband's.

A Lethbridge lawyer predict- ed Friday thai water in tlie Oldman River basin will soon be allocated on an equitable planned basis. Until now, waler in the basin has been taken on a first-come- first serve basis. Bill Russell told the conference. Mr. Russell said (.here Is no shortage of water in sight in the Oldman River basin, which drains a area in soulliwesl Alberta. However, as use of water In- creases each year, it becomes increasingly important to plan its use carefully, he said. Mr. Russell said the right to control the use of water in fliis province rests with the Alberta government, under the Water Resources Act. Pointing to a speech by Bii: Yurko, Alberta environment minister, tlie minister respon sible for the province's waler Ihe lawyer said it is unlikely the Oldman River will be sup- plemented by diversion of wa ter from elsewhere. Environment Minister Yurk said at a conference in Leth bridge in July that Alberta ha "no sin-plus" water for expor to the United Slates, said Mr Russell. "I gather he fthe minister said that as far as the Amer cans -are concerned we have n water lo said Mr. Rus sell. don'l tliink he intended t say as far as every drop waler is concerned that we are using it to ils Mr. Russell said tlie Alberta vemment has announced that over-all Alljerta Water Plan in the making. The new plan likely to mean that the gov- rnmcnt will reserve water for tore uses, he predicted. (Reg Bailey, director of wa- res ources in Ihe environ- ncnt department, told the con- that at present there no reservations placed oo 'ater in the Under the Water the government has the uthority to reserve water for uture use by specific parties. Interpreting the government wjsirion announced by Mr. 'urko, Mr, Russell Raid whila he government does not en- irely rule out possible future iversion of water within tho >roviuce, it would only be done vith "great reluctance." He said that if water short- ages occur in the future, hu- man ingenuity will find a solu- ion.
