Increases, with previous prices in brackets are: Homogenized milk: quart, 31 cents (30 half gallon containers, 61 cent? Two per cent partly skim- med milk: quart, 29 cents lialf gallon containers, 57 cents Skimmed milk: quart, 24 cents Some of Ihe milk products also increased include collage cheese up two certs for both the 12 ounce dry and 16 ounce creamed product, cremee up one cent per pint and whipping crearn up one cent per half pint. Al Wiggins, new manager for Silverwood Dairies, said each of the nine requesting dairies was able to show reasons for the request. He said even with the new increase, Lethbridge will have the lowest milk price base in Canada. Bill Sinko, new manager for Purity Dairy Co-op Ltd., Lelli- bridge branch, said the last price raise for milk was June 1, 1970 and of this increase the producers of milk received the biggest share He said the wage increase of 540 per month and the increase in processing and handling of milk resulted in a loss lo the Lefhbridge area dairies of three tenths of one cent from the last increase.

Gibbons believes Divided school year problems to be subject of special meetings Lcthbridgc public school dis- trict officials will meet with Al- berta department of education officials several times in the next two weeks to attempt to solve a budding divided school year hang-up. The Lelhbridge divided school year experiment, DOW in its third year, is an attempt to see if school terms can be divid- ed into two semesters with Christmas as the break between them. The project was approved by the department after city pub- lic and separate school districts were assured by Alberta's three universities that their slurtenls would be accepted on the basis of locally designed Grade 12 final examinations. However, many other school jurisdictions in tie province in- cluding Calgary and Edmonton have been pressuring the gov- ernment to allow them similar local exam autonomy and the government has balked. The result has been a new set of provincial Grade 12 depart- mental exams, with one set be- fore Christmas and another earlier in June than the tradi- tional month-end schedule. But in Lethbridge, the dales just don't even out. Christmas exams are written about Dec. 20 to 23; June finals about June 1 to 7. The province is offering its special exams (and withdraw- ing its permission allowing Lethbridge to set its on Dec. 13 to 17 and June 12 to 19. The first set is a week too early; the second a week too late. Lethbridge school officials are concerned that this will entirely disrupt the divided school year experiment, which the school hoards have visual- ized as a five-year project. Dr. 0. P. Larson, superinten- dent of public schools told a school board meeting Tuesday that the district will be able lo work around the provincial dales "if absohilcy necessary. "Today trie trend is away from too much emphasis on ex- ams, and the government's stand seems to be completely incompatible with this.
