Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 27, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta DISNEYLAND HOLIDAY DEC. 26 TO JAN. 2 From person sharing Return Airfare from Calgary Special Farei for Children 2-12 ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL CENTRE VILLAGE WEST END PHONE 328-3201 or 328-t184 New program for language help By RON CALDWELL Staff Writer As many as 250 students an hour may receive the help they need to correct speech and lan- guage difficulties under a new program devised for the Leth- bridge public school system. Bill Lingard and Ann Johan- sen, teachers who now are of- fering the special courses, told the board Tuesday night that, under the present method of op- eration, only five students an hour are treated for their prob- lems. A main feature of the new proposal is that less time will be spent by the professionals on diagnosis and more time on treatment and training. "We plan to train one person in.each school who can treat minor difficulties." said Mr. Lingard. "This would leave us free to spend more time on treating severe language problems and to assist teachers when they need help in certain cases." Teachers would continue to play an important role in the program by diagnosing children in their classes who may need assistance. Mr. Lingard explained that it is not only children who have difficulty speaking and hearing who need help, but also those children who have problems using words in their proper context. Mrs. Johansen said the target date for launching the new pro- gram is Jan. 1 at the Dorothy Gooder school. Tire program would be in op- eration in other general learn- ing disability classes and in the elementary schools wthin 2Vz years and in junior and senior high schools at a later date. "We also hope to work out a program whereby we can at- tack this problem at the pre- school said Mr. Lingard.

"We have people in our >chools now who we will be able to train to carry out spe- cific language programs." he said. Another feature of the pro- gram is that consultation time imong teachers, parents and he medical profession will be quadrupled. Scenic Drive cause for concern The Lethbridge public school board has expressed concern for the safety of elementary and junior high school students who must cross Scenic Drive at least twice a day to attenc classes at the Agnes Davidson and Paterson schools. The board received three let lers from concerned parents in tire area, pointing out the exist ing traffic hazards. It was noted that there only a painted crosswalk 01 the street, and the posted speed limit is 40 mph. The parents urged that somi action be taken before a trag edy occurs on the heavily travelled roadway. The board decided to ap- proach city council and reques that some action be taken tc improve safety conditions in the crossing area. The board declined to make specific suggestions on wha should be done, on the recom mendation of Reg Turner. "It is obviously a very dan gerous said Mr Turner. "But it is up to city council to decide what actio should be taken." Johnson is neiv board chairman Carl Johnson, a retired schoo teacher, has been elected t serve as chairman of the Leth bridge public school board fo the next three years, sucoeec ing Bill Brown. Before giving up the chair Mr. Brown presented the new chairman with a gavel "in hope that its use will always be ceremonial."

Smith, president of the 3.C. Provincial Council of Car- penters Tuesday. The federal government is being forced to adopt the mea- sures to meet the demands of Canadian business and industry which, he said, arc editorially Well, Mayor Andy Anderson was out of the city Wednesday on city business. Deputy-Mayor Cam Barnes was out of the city Wednes- day on private business. Acting Mayor C. W. Chi- chester was out of the city Wednesday on city business. City Manager Tom Nutting was out of the city Wednes- day on city business. Who's running the city? Wayne Quinn, assistant city manager for internal audit, said Wednesday morning, "I wouldn't comment on that." Southern Alberta got its first major snowfall of the season Tuesday. Two inches of snow fell in Lethbridge and contributed to a rash of minor accidents, 17 being reported by city police. Temperatures fell rapidly in the area overnight with a low of 15 above in Lethbridge and 11 above at Pincher Creek. The mercury is expected to plunge to around 10 above to- night but sunny skies and a temperature of 35 above is forecast Thursday. Hoad conditions throughout southern Alberta were hazard- ous this morning with motor- ists reporting several trailers overturned and many cars in the ditch on highways between Calgary and Lethbridge. District roads were also re- ported extremely slippery. Heaviest snowfall was report- ed in the Banff area where 12 inches fell when the cold front moved into the province from the north. Slipping drivers drive without caution The first snow storm' of the season and resulting icy roads accounted for 16 minor traffic accidents in Lethbridge Tues- day. City police reported 13 of the accidents resulted in damage less than the remaining three were less than and there were no injuries. City works engineer Barry Temple said two sanding trucks have been out since 2 p.m. Tuesday. The first area to be sanded was the 9th Street bridge.

Resi- dential streets are the last to be sanded." he said. He said all of the 160 miles of Lethbridge streets should be sanded by noon. "When all the streets have been sanded our crews go back to some of the more hazard- ous spots and give them an- other he said. The city currently has four trucks equipped with rotary sand spreading devices. All of the city trucks are loading sand from the CPR round house. Mr. Lawrence also said the city police are empowered to call out city road crews during the night and on the weekends when the sanding crews are off duty. "We always have a watch- SERVICE LTD.

City police said the streets would be fully-patrolled des- pite the icy conditions. The Lethbridge detachment of the RCMP reported only one district traffic accident over- night. Damage amounted to less than and there were no injuries. The RCMP highway patrol said the roads are generally bad throughout Southern Al- berta and urged drivers to ex- ercise the utmost care.

Mr. Smith said the recently- ntroduccd price and wage reeze in the United States has esulted in high profits lor American businessmen. A wage freeze in Canada would take the right of collec- ive bargaining away from the rorker. He said United States work- ps now cannot bargain for vage increases, although imerican industry is reaping ligh profits. U.S. businessmen are elimi- lating the usual accessories ac- ompanying their products ippliances to cars and then harging customers extra for hem. He said U.S. business may mve had advance warning of he freeze and boosted their prices while labor, without the same advance knowledge, did not negotiate higher wages for ts workers. Business dollars help political candidates in the U.S. win elec- ions so politicians, in turn, may provide business with con- 'idential information. "Traditionally, anything that succeeds in the United States comes to he warned The Canadian Labor Con- gress, "which represents over a million people in Canada strongly opposes the freeze.' Speaking to 37 provincial rep- resentatives of 12 locals attend ng the 20th convention of the Alberta Provincial Council of Carpenters meeting in Leth- mdge Mr. Smith said the 10 XT cent import surcharge im- posed by the U.S. severely threatens the Canadian eco- Domy. He called the import tax 'Canada's most urgent crisis." The federal government has already stated the surtax may cost Canada jobs this winter. Canada has surpassed its highest unemployment rale in more than a decade, with about half million workers out of jobs, he said. This country is affected in other ways too, Mr. Smith said, adding, between three and four billion dollars worth of Cana- dian exports are subject to the surcharge. It also has an indirect effect on the Canadian economy be- cause other countries that are important customers, them- selves hurt by the surcharge, may be compelled to curtail their Canadian buying. He said already Japanese buyers have cut back their quotas and reduced Canadian or- ders. This type of action will cause serious unemployment in B.C. and elsewhere. Mr. Smith said even apart from the surcharge, exports could suffer from the currency change. The Canadian dollar is strong on the international money market and could easily raise compared with the value of the U.S. dollar. They would be equivalent to a tax on Canadian exports and a stimulus to imports, he said.
