If (he proposed amalgama- tion of the boards is approved by all the conlributing munici- palities after Oct. 13, one of three things would happen to existing boards: both would be disolved and a by-election held; existing board members would all serve on the amalgamated board: or county appointments to the amalgamated board board would follow o dissolu- tion of the two boards.

They will seek from Mr. Hyndman exemption from sev- eral departmental decisions which will badly hamper con- tinuation of (he five-year Lelh- bridge experiment. The surface skirmish is over a department edict that all Al- berta Grade 12 students will he required to write Edmon- ton-set final examinations for their diplomas and matricula- tion, at dates chosen by Ihe department. The war may be over wheth- er the exams are necessary at all. Hc questioned whether the concerns expressed readi- ness of teachers and the pub- lic to accept locally devel- oped were student evaluations based on "any fact at The province's chosen dates conflict with the Lethbridge school year schedule, cutting j down on the fall semester's in- I strucUon time by at least five j days. The spring semester sit- j ua'tion is even worse. One of the seldom-mention- ed criticisms of departmental exams or any general fi- nal exams is that they are useful for less than 15 per I cent of the province's students: those who continue on into uni- versity. Colleges and technical insti- tutes do not require matricula- tion, and students seeking only high school graduation do not and asked if the govern- ment had taken any surveys. Dr. Larson said he knew of none, except for unresearched statements from several SILAS. "I can't see any convincing arguments as to why we should be set back in our plans and have our students forced into this unimaginative mold of departmental Dr. Beckel said. "And I don't care if it only happens in Lelhbridge if LeUibridge is the exception to (he standard in the province. We shoL'ldn't have to change our ways because a bunch ol slow-wilted individuals work in most of the other school sys- tems." Dr. Beckel, who is also presi- dent-elect of the University of Lethbridge, said he recognized that one of the problems the government faced was the un- certainly of Hie Calgary and E d m o n tun universities' con- tinued acceptance ol Lcth- hridgc exam results. "As far as Ihe University of LeUibridge is concerned you can entirely ignore Ihe srnment's departmental exam- he .said. "We'll be happy lo lake stu- dents without Ibt'm bu'i I ben they won't get their high school diplomas sent lo llicm from the government." The University of Alberla and Universily of Cjlgary, he said, "are nol as advanced in their thinking as we are al the U of L. "The other two universities are remarkably conservative, end for llicm lo say Ihey'd ac- cept sludenls without provin- cial exams wilhoul first having Ihe province pul its stamp of approval on the stu- dents would lake away their adminislralive securily, "I would hale lo see an edicl from (he department of educa- tion, tiiat emerged from some subterranean spot in lord knoM's what fashion, stop us from proceeding wilh an ex- periment in education about which we have been so on- i thusia.slic and are so certain of." Concern that perhaps Lefh- i bridge sludcnts accepted into universities on Ihe basis of city set exams were not doing well been denied. While no studies have been done. U of L registrar Jack Ovialt has said previously that Ihe 'ocal marks were at least as gocd a measure of a stu- dent's capabilities as the pro- vincial marks. He also said cily sludcnis al Lhe U of L have peiiormcd as well as slu- dent1; from other cities. Dr. Larson will arrange a meeting with city high school principals and Grade 12 teach- ers lo seek their formal sup- i poil in Ihe fight. City teachers in the past almost unanimous- ly approved (he divided year. He will also seek separate school district support. At the last separate school board i m e e I ing, Lrustecs expressed concern al the government's decision, but agreed unwiUing- ly lo accept il for this year and fight it out for Die next 1 semeslcr. Fluoridation plebiscite expected with civic election A petition to have city coun- cil put the issue of fluoridation of public water on the- ballot Oct. 33 is expected to be pre- sented to the city clerk Friday. Dr. L. C. Malheson, a den- tisl with the Lethbridge Health Unit, said the number of per- sons who signd the petition nill not be known until Ijriday. If the city clerk receives the petition at that time, it will be included on the agenda of the Sept. 20 meeting of city council for consideration. Council last April said the is- sue would not be put on the bal- lot unless there was sufficient public pressure for a plebiscite. Persons wishing their names on the list may contact Dr. Matheson.
