At an open meeting of the university students' society, which drew about 175 students and faculty, the learn-in was approved following some minor wording problems which in- volved misunderstanding of an originally proposed "teach-in." U of L president Dr. Sam Smith was asked to speak to students during discussion of the teach-in, and termed it "an appropriate response to a ser- ious problem. "It's a very reasonable idea, and I wish I were able to take part in Dr. Smith said. Dr. Smith and other TJ of L administrators will be attend- ing the annual Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada meeting in Winnipeg next week.

In the centre of the picture, between the present north-side plant on tho left and Valley Feeders on right, is the excavation for the three aeration tanks that will corn- comprise a major part of the facilities. Some piles are being driven to support the concrete tanks, which are needed to supply oxygen to the sewage. Pipes as large as four feet in diameter will be used to pump compressed air into the sewage. The two smaller excavations just west (behind) of the main one are for an activated sludge building and final settling tanks. The flat area near the line of trees (a plume of dust marks the spot where o bulldozer is working) will be used for 15-foot deep sludge disposal cells. The million facilities are to be finished by next fall. Continued Study Of Divided Year Likely By JIM WILSON Herald Education Writer A continued study will likely be undertaken the Leth- bridge divided school year ex. periment, and an administra- tion committee of the public Bchool board will develop rec- ommendations of possible ap- proaches.

He added that while only a small amount of information could be presented in each one- minute spot (about 150 words) 'you could devote 20 or more days to discussing one particu "ar problem in smaller parts.' C J 0 C radio also proposec one-minute spot programs on a daily basis, but offered three innounccments per day for the irice of one per week) The total cost for the school 'ear would be about Jack tones, presenting the >roposal for CJOC, said the itation would "tell a shorl itory each day."

Lethbridge school officials are also actively planning spe rial summer school programs which would make use of the schools for about six weeks. Hiring Policy On Principals Given Okay Selection of "the right princi pal for the right school" is to be the major guideline for Leth bridge public school distric selection committees choosing principal candidates for vac ancies in the system. According to a policy adoptee by the public school board Tuesday, "the man who cai best meet the criteria adoptei by the board" will be selected so the position will be adver- tised both in and out of the city. All other things being equal setween two candidates, the policy statement continues, a jerson already working with lie district will be given pre- ;renee. The new policy clears the way >r selection of a principal for ,he Lethbridge Collegiate Insti- ute to replace W. L. Neville, who retires this year. Factors suggested by the pol- cy for inclusion in selection criteria will vary with the par- icular job requirements and school in question, but could in- clude the candidate's training, p e c i a 1 i zation, experience, human relations skills, com- mand of language and ability articulate thoughts clearly, ependability and drive, emo- ional stability and other per- sonality characteristics, physi- al fitness or health and others. A high school attendance pi icy aimed at cutting down chances of permanent suspe sion was approved Tuesday the Lethbridge public scho board. Trustees expressed concern that the policy should in o way be used as a tool for e pulsion of any student except the most extreme cases. prefer to transfer tl student to another school whe the attendance problem b comes too said D 0. P. Larson, public schoo superintendent. "We've h a pretty good success using this method so far." The statement notes that st dents are required by law attend school until age 16, i matter what grade the achieve; and that the primar responsibility for attendant rests with parents and the st dent, not with the school. It also notes that schoo need maximum attendance order to be as successful possible, ami when studen miss classes they also miss b sic instruction periods, partic larly with the compressei classes of the semesterizi courses now common. Trustees noted that in cas< of extensive absences, it wou still be preferable that a st dent be required to drop one i two of his courses in order concentrate more fully on tl others, rather than being ex pelled. It is to be up to the princi p a 1 to decide when the st dent's parents are to be inform ed of continued absences f< unacceptable reasons, but the student misses 'more tha five days, notified by letter. parents must telephone and Students missing more th; five days of school will be r quired to meet with the teachers and the school coun seller to attempt to resolv whatever difficulties are eithe encouraging absence or resulted from absence. Parents may also be callec in and if absences continue oth er action may be taken indue irig, finally, complete suspen sion for the semester.

Library Aide For Hamilton Hamilton Junior High School will get a paid library aide al- most immediately, following a request and delegation from the school's home and school association. The board will also offer a li- brary aide to Wilson Junior High School, in a slight revi- sion of its spring budget policy of limiting library aides to the senior high schools. An exception had been made earlier for Gilbert Paterson Elementary-Junior High School due to difficulties it had with establishing its new library. Aides will now be employed in all junior and senior high schools, but not in elementary schools. A. letter to the board from Hamilton home and school president Mel Seely noted that both the school's principal, Jack Langford and a parent- aide who has been in the library said full-time assis- tance was badly needed. Dr. Larson recommend- ed that the two aides be em- ployed as soon as possible, with provision and fair warn- ing that should the district's fi- nancial p o s i tion be difficult next year, the positions could be cut. jeclive study" of the current civil liberties situation in Can- ada, both with the War Mea- sures Act in effect and without it. The learn-in will also discuss Quebec, from the point of view of its economic. and social background to see how the cur- rent problems developed, as well as the implications of the separatist movement and the recent FLQ kidnappings and murder. Ron McRas, another organ- izer of the conference, said he hopes students, faculty and everyone from the general pub- lic interested in attending will gain a bettev understanding of how the Quebec problem has developed, and how it affects even western Canadians.
