Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 7, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, September 7, 1974 Editorial cartoons used to stimulate young readership kly JIM GRANT Herald Staff Writer Students need to be encouraged to stay in "ontact with the news if they are to become ood critical thinking citizens of tomorrow, a of Lethbridge teachers was told this week. Doug Whiting, president of Douglas Whiting Ltd., Montreal, then informed the eachers he had the teaching tool that would develop student interest in current affairs jnd encourage critical discussion about ational and international events. The program Mr. Whiting spoke of is "see think." It is based on a study of editorial .artoons and related news stories and uses 'aily newspapers as an educational learning wurce. Through the study of the cartoons, students want to obtain a better understanding of the message the cartoonist was attempting to convey, he said. Since cartoons usually take a satirical look at the news, they stimulate students to read the front page, the editorial page and other sections of the newspaper that reflect the national and international scene, he said. The program is being used in some Lethbridge senior, junior and elementary schools as well as in hundreds of schools across the nation. The 32 daily newspapers that sponsor the program provide more than two million copies of newspapers to the schools to help students learn. The Herald provides the new- spapers and program free to city schools in an effort to encourage students to read more than just the comics. Mr. Whiting said in an interview following the presentation the program was introduced to .schools in 1970 as a piFot project when sur- veys of teen-age students showed most were only reading the comic strips, classified ads, Ann Landers and the sports pages of their dai- ly newspaper. To develop an understanding of current events and to speak knowledgeably about them, students must be taught how to use the as a low-cost wealth of learning material. The newspaper, Mr. Whiting maintains, can be used as a learning tool in almost all school subjects. History students may want to study the historic background of a current event, geography students may want to study a country that is in the news, environmental students may research a news story in their field of study and English students may simp- ly be interested in the word usage, Mr Whiting suggested. The see and think program provides teachers with a bundle of material each week that includes a film strip of several cartoons that were printed the previous week in Cana- dian newspapers, related news articles, a teacher guide and a current event quiz. By constantly providing new material to the schools, the program stays fresh and able to maintain student interest because it reflects events that are happening in a wor that is real to students today. And authors of the program have found th students are more interested in actu happenings than theories and generalization Local teachers who have been using tl program during the past three years testifii following the presentation that it has been effective learning tool in several subje areas. One teacher was even using it in economii and mathematics courses. By using adve tisements from the newspaper, youngstei were able to determine whether their Chris mas shopping list was feasible and I calculate how much it costs their parents I feed them. Turkey producers face huge losses By RIC SWIHAR'l Herald Staff Writer Turkey producers in Canada face huge losses this year because of selling prices set below the cost of production by a committee of civil ser- vants in Ottawa, says the secretary of the Alberta Broiler Growers' Marketing Board. Don Potter of Edmonton told The Herald Thursday in a telephone interview turkey producers don't want civil ser- vants to set producer prices for turkey. They feel the market conditions should be the criteria, not the opinion of civil servants. Turkey producers require a price increase of three cents a pound if they are to cover their cost this year, said Mr. Potter. He said the federal govern- ment has agreed to restrict movement of United States turkeys into Canada to protect the producer from much- lower prices. U.S. producers are receiving much lower prices because of a greater over supply of turkeys in that country and if more than the five-year average for imports CLOSED UNTIL SEPT. iltn Phone for Appointment Certified Dental Mechanic CLIFF BLACK BLACK DENTAL LAB PHONE 327-2822 Just Arrived A New Shipment of "FIRE KING" STACKING COFFEE MUGS SPECIAL 00 U for I Call China 327-5767 Downtown is allowed, the domestic price would drop even more. Mr. Potter said producers in Canada have been forced to accept a turkey price set by a committee of civil servants to obtain the protection from U.S. birds. Under present pricing schedules, one turkey producer in the Edmonton area with birds says he will realize only from sale of product. That money must be used to pay all ex- penses except feed and the young birds being raised and allow for a profit for the grower. If the civil servants allowed the price of turkey to increase one cent per pound, that grower would realize extra, according to Mr. Potter. If the price were allowed to be increased three cents a pound the grower would realize more than under present prices and could consider it a successful year. Mr. Potter said if prices aren't allowed to go up now at a time when the market can easily absorb the extra cost, many producers will be forced out of business. They will simply turn to grain produc- tion where they know they can make a profit. their zealous protection of the consumer, the civil ser- vants are hurting the con- sumer in the long said Mr. Potter. "There will be a shortage of turkey in the near future and higher prices will be the result." Mr. Potter said the action of the civil servant committee has "tied the hands" of provincial marketing boards which have the job of es- tablishing price controls within the turkey industry.
