Meanwhile, a crafty clerk________________________________________________ 'Rural-life values destroyed9 The gradual disappearance of rural schools and the subse- quent development of centralized schools has "broken down" family life and rural living Leighton Buckwell, Fort Macleod Social Credit MLA. said Thur- sday The centralized school system may be giving rural Students a better education, but it is also destroying rural life values because rural children are now urban orien- tated he told the annual con- vention of zone 6 of the Alberta School Trustees Association in Lethbridge. Mr. Buckwell, during a pan- el discussion on basics education, said MLAs and trustees have been more in- terested in building schools and developing the educational system than look- ing at the end product of the school system As a result, he says the high school product doesn't have constructive goals "When they come out of school they're over-protected and scared because they don't know what they are going to do The poor little beggers don't even know where to he said He says parents have been afraid of their children and as a result, have over-protected them which in turn has harm- ed more than helped them. Parents today are not will- ing to "put their ideals on the line" and as a result have been saying one thing and do- ing another. Mr. Buckwell says his parents and grandparents had definite ideals and wouldn't change which resulted in children knowing where they were going in life "Unless we turn back now we have failed a generation." He suggests this can be done by bringing Christian educa- tion back into the schools "The world is not going to be saved by education. It is going to be saved through education." He also claimed the present school system would be challenged if parents were given the a child it costs to educate a child each year in Alberta so that they could send their child to the school of their choice. Even under the social credit government "money was given (for education) far more generously then what it should have Mr. Buckwell conceded. Shop HOYT'S and SAVE on Home Hardware! SUPER SPECIAL!

There real- ly just doesn't seem to be anything a little child won't swallow, does there. Little children have swallowed such things as paint, glue, lighter fluid, bleach, am- monia and the list can go on almost endlessly. A case of self-inflicted child poisoning almost always amounts to the parents' not making cer- tain that all poisonous substances and things have been kept complete- ly out of the child's reach. So, isn't TODAY the best-possible day for you to check through your home to be sure literally everything a child could swallow has been carefully put out of reach? Isn't it your duty as adults to make certain nothing which can poison a child is ever left within his or her reach. Open daily 8 .10 a.m. to 30 p.m. Sundays and Holidays 12 noon to jj m. Albert Robinson, 18, both of 807 7th St were charged with breaking into the Medical-Dental Building Sept 4. Patrick Allen Caldwell, of Lethbridge was also charged but his trial was postponed un- til he is released from Alberta Hospital in Ponoka. Nikles, McDougall, and Robinson had testified they did enter the building about 1 a m., but only to allow McDougall to go to the bathroom.

Phone 328-4095 Stores show lower milk price Milk prices in Lethbridge have dropped three cents a quart at food stores, reflecting the three-cent drop announced earlier this week by the Alberta Dairy Control Board Six stores surveyed this week have set their prices at the base prices set by the board, 35 cents a quart for homogenized milk, 33 cents for two per cent milk and 29 cents a quart for skim milk. But the prices are minimum prices and retailers are allow- ed to charge more for the products if they wish. One store on 13th Street N., for example, is selling homogenized milk at 39 cents a quart, two per cent milk at 37 cents a quart and skim milk at 34 cents a quart. The three-cent drop in milk prices is offset by price in- creases in four other dairy products, not affected by a five-cent-a-quart federal sub- sidy program approved by the Alberta government. Four products are selling for two cents more at most stores. Buttermilk sells for 43 cents a quart, chocolate milk for 46 cents a quart, a half pint of whipping cream at 52 cents, and a pint of 10 per cent cream at 42 cents. Revised price lists are located at the checkout counters of the major stores but if a customer selects products marked before the price changes he will save some money. In one store the new prices were not marked on the con- tainers. Instead the customer's price was being quoted from a price list at the check out counter Taxpayers need contact with educational system By JIM GRANT Herald Staff Writer More public contact with the educational system is needed to gain the support of taxpayers for the cost of education, a university stu- dent said Thursday. Tim Firth told trustees attending the Zone 6 Alberta School Trustees' Association convention in Lethbridge that school boards need represen- tation from the whole com- munity. School boards are "top heavy" with professionals and election to them is dis- criminatory on the basis of in- come and training, he said. If school boards are to become truly representative of the whole community, they need to include representation from labor, the working class, the native community and the student population, he suggested. Mr. Firth claimed that financial support for educa- tion is now grudgingly given up by the taxpayer. "The taxpayers by and large are not terribly keen on having an ever-larger percen- tage of their tax dollar spent on education (because) a con- siderable number of tax- payers already think students are getting too good a deal.'1 Public involvement in education would improve the system significantly, he suggested Because the public is out of contact with the educational system, they look upon it as a way of obtaining a better job rather than as an "on-going" process that encourages students to expand their knowledge throughout life. Mr. Firth said the educational system must "put an end to the competitive drive" it now instils in students. Each student must have the opportunity to learn at his own pace rather than compete with other students. Education must become more than just a method of ob- taining "jiice white-collar jobs, a house in the suburbs with a wife and 2.4 kids, a boat and a week-end cottage in the country." There is more to life than that, Mr. Firth suggested. He believes people should work, but the educational system shouldn't be geared toward that work to the degree it is now. During his speech, Mr Firth also suggested "a good- ly amount of what is presently taught" in schools today is discriminatory It is sexist and racist, he says. The wife and mother is presented as being empty- headed and the Indians are oortrayed as being simple- minded. Mr. Firth also suggested education should not ignore reality. People must not be denied knowledge of bodily functions, desires and realistic ways of dealing with them, he said. 'Control education here' School board trustees and not the department of educa- tion should be in control of education at the local level, the chairman of the Lethbridge separate school board said Thursday. John Boras, speaking in Lethbridge at the annual con- vention of zone 6 of the Alberta School Trustees' Association, said the depart- ment of education is now operating a financial system in which "we are accepting our own money on their con- ditions Program and building proposals for local schools must first be forwarded to the department of education for approval and funding. He said trustees want to be partners with the provincial government in the manage- ment of the educational system Mr Boras said he was not sure what management responsibilities would belong to the trustees, but suggested it is a question trustees will have to soon look at. He did say he was for regional bargaining with teachers. "If we bargain at the local level we'll avoid the expense of doing it through the bureaucrats. In order to compete with the government and the Alberta Teachers' Association, Mr. Boras says the ASTA should start employing more people such as consultants. He said the ASTA needs to show that it is able to take the responsibili- ty of controlling education at the local level and to do this it needs more full-time staff. The department of educa- tion and the ATA should be developing the ideas to im- prove education and the trustees should be making the decisions, he concluded. Another speaker at the con- 2 Americans remanded on narcotics charges vention discussed the provin- cial government's new labor act which became law earlier this month. Lowell Williams, executive director of the ASTA, said the new labor act gives the board of industrial relations extend- ed powers and the ASTA has been attempting to find out how future teacher-school board bargaining will be affected by the changes. He said the ASTA wants the government to make sure the power of both sides (employer and employee) are equal. Because of the control the department of education has over education, the power balance isn't equal between teachers and school boards, he claimed Certification standards, sick leave, pension plans and many other standard bargain- ing issues in most employer- employee contracts are governed by the department of education and cannot be used as bargaining items in teacher-school board negotiations Two American citizens charged with conspiracy to import narcotics into Canada were remanded in custody to Oct. 25 after they reserved plea in Lethbridge provincial court Thursday. Kenneth Bauska, 25, and John Francis, 21, both of Kalispell, Mont., arrived in the city Wednesday after be- ing extradicted from the U.S Charges were laid by Cana- dian authorities Dec. 31. 1972, after an RCMP investigation revealed that parcels of hashish, postmarked Ger- many, had arrived in the city last fall. After a lengthy extradiction process, the two men were arrested by Kalispell, Mont, city police Sept. 11. A subse- quent extradiction hearing ruled the two men could be taken by Canadian authorities to face the charges Another man, also an American citizen, is wanted in connection with the alleged conspiracy but police have been unable to locate him RCMP did not disclose the amount or value of the drugs.
