About 30 teachers attending the ATA's southern Alberta re- gional conference furthered their complaint by stating that the news media are generally unresponsive to releases made by their executive. However they faulted the ATA with taking too long in preparing 'news releases to the media. Because of the time lapse they felt many editors were justified in throwing away the communications. The teachers endorsed an ATA ad hoc committee on local services recommendation that alternative methods of pro- viding the public with pertinent information about teachers and new teaching methods be found. Southern Alberta teachers felt someone knowledgeable with the media operation should be employed full-time to prepare news releases, the content of which was known to teachers prior to publication- They complained that the re- leases currently offered the news media contained informa- tion that teachers themselves, as a rule, were not fully aware of. J. F. Layton, of Innisfail, ATA vice-president that more teachers should at- tend regular ATA meetings in order to know what was hap- pening. He cited examples in Cal- gary and Edmonton where only about 10 per cent of the teach- ers attended meetings. It was these teachers who made recommendations and prepared resolutions which spoke for the entire body of teachers in those areas. Mr. Layton also suggested the teachers, each of whom represented a local, could es- tablish a personal liaison with local editors to get then- activi- ties publicized. If the local publisher then re- fused to publish any teacher in- formation he suggested the lo- cals buy paid advertising to have their views and changes made known. He said the large number of teachers in Alberta present a valid reason for publishers to print some of the Information- Because the teaching pro- fession has considerable impact on the community, people should be aware of what is hap- pening. Mr. Layton said if editors then do not publish a fair pro- portion of important teacher news and changes, the teachers should write, "The publisher of this paper refused to publish this important information as news" in their advertising.

The recommendations had been prepared earlier this year by an ad hoc committee on local services committee of the ATA. In a report the committee said the ATA should clearly dif- ferentiate each of its major fields of activity into two areas: Those activities which must be carried out at the provincial level for the benefit of all tea- chers; Those activities which may be better carried out at the local level, and that locals should be encouraged to under- take as they believe they can carry out effectively them- selves. The committee report stated that "it is possible and desir- able to differentiate between those ATA activities which clearly affect the welfare of teachers generally- and those whose effect is primarily lo- cal."

It added, negotiation of col- lective agreements at the local level and the education of locals or their committees in teacher welfare matters should be the concern of the individual tea- chers' local. The teachers' locals and ATA headquarters should work joint- ly in providing current informa- tion on the status of negotia- tions, negotiations of collective agreements above the local level, salary grievances and school operating costs- The ad hoc committee report also recommended that the provincial ATA provide assis- tance to locals in the areas of; grievances and discipline; con- sultative help in devising local programs where needed; con- sultative help in effective local budgeting and efficient budget control; Help in training and orienta- tion of school representatives on local or regional basis; help and advice to locals in making choices among the wide variety of programs and services they may offer to their members and in setting workable priori- ties with respect to these.

Three aldermen, Tommy Ferguson, Bill Kergan and Ed Bastedo, will take their oaths as new council members. Aid. Camm Barnes, Chick Chiches- ter, Vaughan Hembroff, Vera Ferguson and Steve Kotch were returned to office. After the invocation by Rev. Lawrence D. Hankinson of St. Andrews Presbyterian Chureh and the swearing-in cere- monies, a Deputy Mayor and acting Mayor will be appointed. Appointments will also be made to 14 standing commit- tees and the Ice Arena and Henderson Golf Course Hedge ad hoc committees. Council will also determine which aldermen will represent the city at the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association con- vention in Edmonton next week. The meeting will begin at 8 p.m. in council chambers. ment's recent move to stimu late the economy and relieve unemployment is "too little, too late." Mr. Gundlock said the pro- gram of tax cuts combined with federal aid for employmen making projects will take ai least six weeks to get off the ground and it will almost be spring before the effects are fully felt. A much more effective move would have been for the gov ernment to remove the 11 per cent tax on building materials he said. "That's the daddy them all." If the tax were taken of building materials there wouk be an immediate upsurge in construction activity throughou the industry all across the country, he said. Mr. Gundlock said repealing the tax would also cost the gov ernment less money than the announced tax cuts and aid to municipal building projects. There has been pressure o n the federal government for some time from the building industry to get rid of the 1: per cent tax, and Mr. Gund lock said he was unhappy tha1 the government had not seen fit to move in this direction a: this time. In contrast to the removal o] the building materials lax, the seven per cent drop in corpor ate tax will have little effect by the time it filters down through the economy, he said. The three per cent reduction in federal individual income tax also "won't mean much."

A meeting of Albeit munici- palities with Municipal Affairs Minister Dave liussell has been scheduled for Thursday to dis- cuss the programs that may qualify for federal aid.

While the city has many parks and open spaces with which t o draw tourists, more facilities food and lodging are required. He said many comments have been received from tourists about the neatness and tidy- ness of the city, and pointed to the significance of the Nikka Yuko Centennial Garden which causes many tourists to come to the city. Mayor Anderson attributed the area's tourist success to the association's good staff training and the impression left by ex- cellent sendee from those ca- tering to tourists- However- he added, both re- quire continued improvement to keep attracting tourists. He said as tourists from Eur- opean origin increase, someone capable of speaking many lan- guages should be found to make a good impression a sugges- tion endorsed by directors at- tending the meeting. Immediate past president of the TCASA, Chick Chichester, said the number of member- ships in the organization has made a dramatic 43.9 per cent increase in the past year and now includes as members 18 per cent of the businesses in the tourist zone. TCASA's convention efforts during the past year proved highly successful, he said, with promotion doubling the number of people attending some con- ventions in the city. The new provincial cabinet seems to have earmarked tour- ism as an industry that can be economically capitalized upon, Frank Smith, TCASA manager, said. Negotiations are currently under way to provide addition- al tourist grants, he said. The previous cabinet seemed to have underscored the econo- mic importance of tourism to the province, he added. During the meeting Calgary Herald columnist Ken Liddell was awarded the Jerry Potts trophy for "outstandng contri- bution to tourism in southern Alberta." The award is pre- sented whenever TCASA direc- tors feel someone has made an c.xtrn-special and unique con- tril ion to the tourist industry.
