Involved at the preliminary meeting were the county, the city of Lcthliridge, the OHRPC, Lethlridge Municipal Hospital, St. Michael's Hospital and the medical profession. The report said the city of Lethbridge paid to have two amljulances on standby 24 hours a day last year, yet col- lected only in service charges. City Manager Tom Nutting has suggested ambulance ser- vice in the region he tied in with hospitals and the cost to users possibly included in Al- berta Health Care coverage. HELICOPTER The report said a helicopter might possibly be available in southwest Alberta to take pa- tients to hospitals in Leth- bridge, Calgary or Edmonton. Representatives of (he two hospitals in Lethbridge prom- ised to look into ttie feasibilitj of such an air ambulance anc report back to the study group said the report. Mr. Nutting noted thai the city of Calgary pays a day, or a year to op- erate ambulance services, DISTRICT All ambulances and firelight- ing equipment in southwest Al- berta should be co-ordinated into some form of "emergency ser- vice said the report. In this way an ambulance at Coaldale, for instance, could be on standby to cover for an ambulance dispatched from Lethbridge into the rural area. The RCMP is currently cen- tralizing police service, closing offices in small centres in favor of larger more regional offices. At the Lcthbridge County meeting, Councillor John Murray suggested the county might purchase fire trucks and ambulances and station them in various communities as part of a regional plan.

LEROY'S PLUMBING GASFITTING SERVICE WORK NEW INSTALLATIONS PHONE 328.8403 Methods tested Schools 20 years behind real learning concepts It will lake schools from !0 to 20 years to fall into line with what modern research says schools should be doing, says Reg Turner, former principal of Winston Churchill High School in Lethhrtf-ge. Mr. Turner, speaking to the regular meeting of the South- ern Alberta Council on Public Affiars Thursday, said the changes advocated by research are not radical. "I'm not talking about revo- lutionary he said. "These concepts have been re- searched and tested." SEVERAL CONCEPTS Mr. Turner suggested sever- al conceals, which have already been practiced in some schools, should be applied across the board'. Inquiry and discovery as method of learning heads bis list of priorities followed by continuous learning, appropri- ate placement (where the stu- dent is tested before entering a course to find out how much they already know) and inde- pendent study. Several other concepts such as team teaching, multi-group instruction and optional atten- dance are further down on the list. BREATH OF LIFE The inquiry and discovery method "is a breath of life our school system needs. "Real learning is what the individual student thinks about said Mr. Turner. "You face them with a prob- lem, they find the answer and come back with a conclusion." He said someone in Edmon- ton or in the school board of- fice should not have the right to determine the activities of a student and what the results of those activities should be. Commenting on the contro- versial question of examina- tions, the public school trustee said he is opposed to dropping them entirely because it would allow certain teachers to high marks to co-operative stu- dents and poor marks to "troublemakers." Mr. Turner said if the public wants changes in education, It should know in v.'hich directions those changes should go and- then put pressure on educators to implement the new ideas.

On a motion by Councillor Otto Wobick. the counly decided to investigate expansion of its present building on 13th St. S., just north of 3rd Ave. A report of a -meeting be- tween counly officials and Mr. Nulling said "Mr. Nutting sug- gested that if the county were interested in (citj hall) Ihat city council would hive lo state the value and would pre- pared perhaps to lease on a long-term basis to the county."
