Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 26, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta ____Thursday, OctoW 24, 1972 THE UTHBRIDGE HERALD 23 Public servants follow advice By IUCIIAIID JACKSON Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA In the drive to and speed up the production of bilingual public servants, the language schools are "packing" the senior classes. Where until recently there were perhaps from eight to 10 students in the advanced classes at what were Levels lliree and four, there are now as many as 16 to 15. Tliis, complain the students, dilutes the concentration of in- struction for the individual with the language teacher having to spread his attention thinner. At the same time, to further juice up the turn-out of public service bilinguais, former lev- els of language achievement have been compressed into three and the course shortened by one quarter from to 900 hours. Officials at the language schools prefer to say that the instruction is being "in- tensified" rather than "com- and that the concen- tration on the student in- creased, not diluted. They refer to the whole proc- ess as and in- sist it makes for an improve ment in the quality of teaching Public servants at the senior language levels argue tha Christmas flights whatever the "restructuring" Is doing, Hie one certain result is sure to be an increase in the rate of graduates. This mil help meet the "tar- get" of bilinguals, which the students recall, last week was mentioned by Treasury Board President Drury in fend- ing off charges that the govern- ment's language program was a million flop, turning out graduates at a high price. Whether the language course j being compressed and speeded up, counter officials of he bilingual schools, the qual- ty of teaching and the degree of success achieved almost automatically improves through sheer experience if nothing else. But the students are con- cerned that the government, aware that Dr. Pierre Cou- lombe who heads a Treasury Board task force assessing the language program was finding it a failure, has been putting the pressure on the schools to turn it around. In this way, suggest some public servants, the govern- ment might better be able to persuade the taxpayers that they are getting their money's worth out of the bilingual pro- gram and the language schools. approved WASHINGTON West- ern Air Lilies has been granted permission by the Civil Aero- nautics Board to run extra flights between Calgary anj Los Angeles during the Christmas holiday season, the CAB an- nounced here.

Mates and Pilots Union wem on strike against he Pacific Maritime Associ- ation here in an action that could shut down all U.S. Pacific Coast ports where PMA vessels ore moored. Six pickets from the union were posted at Pier 96 here shortly after a Pacific Far East Lines' barge-carrying freighter, [he Japan Bear, arrived. It was the only PMA ship in port here. About 75 members of other unions, including the Inter- national Longshoremen's and Warehousemen's Union, milled outside the pier entrance briefly and most of them had left within an hour. A spokesman for the striking uniin said negotiations broke down on a new contract over the union's demand for rotating jobs among second and third mates. Other issues include wages, hours and working con' ditions. during trend WASHINGTON (AP) There is a definite warming trend over the North Pole and it is melting the polar ice cap even more rapidly than meteorolo- gists had expected, Arctic flyer- explorer Bernt Balchen said here. Balchen said lie personnaly confirmed melting reports in a series of recent flights over Labrador, Greenland, Norway, the Canadian Arctic and t h e polar sea. "We received a fairly elesr picture of the whole Balchen said. "There is no doubt about it, the Arctic polar ice is and maybe faster than had been anticipat- ed. "We may have an open ocean in another 20 years, or in no more than 40 he said. In articles and speeches, the horn Balchen pre viously had forecast an ice- iiej nrctic Ocean by the year 2000. He contends that the warm- Ing climate, Induced in part perhaps by volcanic activity in the Philippines, eventually may make possible tanker shipmenls of oil from Alaskan and Cana- dian fields, and water transport of Far North mineral products such as uranium, nickel, iron, lead and zinc. Balchen piloted Admiral Richard E. Byrd on the first icrial crossing of the South Pole in 1929.
