The system is based on divi- sion of the school day into 20- minute "modules" with the per- iod from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. broken into 24 equal modules. Since all courses at Church- ill are compressed Cor semester purposes, most courses require 80 minutes of attendance pel- day on the average: four mod- ules. The teacher decides how many modules he wants to teach for each course, and schedules the required modules on a master timetable in the school's office. The student fills in these re- quired times on his own time- table, and adds the required number of other modules in the course at any point lie wants so long as he fills in the whole timetable. CMHC Movie Sunday The southern- Alberta region of the Canadian Mental Health Association will sponsor a showing of the satirical movie, The Russians Are Coming, The Russians are Coming, at the Paramount Theatre Sunday at p.m. All proceeds will go to the regional CMHA branch. Fine James Gordon Kirkman, 21, of Bow Island was fined 5150 when he pleaded guilty in mag- istrate's court in Lethbridge Tuesday to dangerous driving. The court was told Kirkman attained speeds of over 90 miles per hour through the city streets while being chased by police.

"Teaching involves all of the things a teacher can do to help a student to learn including in- struction. Simple instruction a student can gel on his own, from a book in the library.' The "teaching" modules, us- ually only one in the required four, will involve whatever di- rect contact the teacher wants to meke. The remaining modu les will be called "independent study" modules, in which the student will study on his own. Teachers will be constantly available to assist students throughout the day, but will not interfere with what the students are doing. The semester is divided into three six-week terms, and the same re-timetabling will be un- dertaken for each term. It be possible in most cases for students to do poorly (and not complete) one term, but make it up through more diligent work in the remaining two terms. The student can, if he wants, schedule most of his week's in- dependent study time in a pai ticular course for the same day of the week, so that it becomes a concentrated study plan or spread various modules out on every day so that extreme var- iety is possible. "None of this would work if we didn't have the excellent staff we have in this Mr. Turner said. "It's amaz- ing to me that a sta.ff could without exception be as willing to work as this one is. "The teachers worked hun- dreds of hours in the summer to prepare for this new pro- gram, and is a real, co-oper- ative team." He said that if the system is to work it will require hard work by the teachers, and acceptance of a heavy responsibility by students for their own success and welfare. "What and how they learn is up to them he said. "But our purpose is to help students to become better hu- man beings, as well as cram- ming facts into their heads. And our students have shown they can do a good job of both." The school expects a bit of an academic slump for the first few weeks until students es- pecially Grade 10s not accus- tomed to Churchill's unorthodox completely aware that they're their own masters. One module each morning and each afternoon becomes the school's "PACT" time, in which students discuss whal- ;ver topics they find interest- ing, and consider in their small groups what the school can do to better itself. A report on each student's progress is sent to parents at the end of every six-week term: three reports per semester.

City council Monday passed several resolutions relative to a complicated situation that threatens to delay construction of the plant and cost the city money in lost forgiveness grants. Alderman LitUs told the Herald the situation was this: a delegation was sent to Ed- monton Aug. 27 to explore with various government depart- ments the possibility of getting an extension on the completion deadline and to ask CMHC if more money would be made available. The extension was obtained. The delegation was given some assurance money from CMHC's 1971 allotment to the province could be made available. (Loans for the sewage facili- ties through CMHC hare a 25 per cent forgiveness clause and are naturally the most attrac- tive source of money for the city.) The city since has been in- formed by the local CMHC of- fice that, according to regula- tions, it cannot authorize the release of any funds. Tile reason "for this is CMHC loans are not made available once a project has started. The city's plant will start in 1970 and the additional loans will have to come from the 1971 CMHC allotment. Original plans were that CMHC loans would finance two- thirds of the cost and the city has approval for a 52 million loan. However, escalating costs i have resulted in a need for an- i other million. This is the money the city would like to obtain through CMHC. Otherwise it "ill have to borrow through the Alberta Municipal Financing Corpora- tion and would not have 25 per cent of the loan returned. The city wants io get started wilh construction as soon as possible. The contract must be awarded within 60 days of the Aug. 11 opening of the lenders. At the same time, the city cannot award the contract with- out running the risk of cutting itself off from additional CMHC loans for the project, because of the regulations. Council voted Monday lo seek CMHC assurance that it might award the conlract without jeopardizing ils chances of more funds. It also d.ecided to send a letter of intent to low bidder.

If the extra money is obtain- ed tin-ought CMHC, 23 pet- cent of it will be saving of S250.000. City council in recent weeks lias become increasingly con- cerned about saving as much money as possible. Costs for the sewage treat- ment facilities have risen from an original estimate last year of million to a current S4.5 million. The first estimate was re- vised to about S2.8 million when a testing program showed that effluent from the south side plant would have lo undergo further treatment if (he city was going to stay within the limits set by the iicallii depart- ment. This required a siphon to the proposed secondary plant on the north side. Industrial ex- pansion also necessitated a re- vision in the plans for tils secondary plant. In June of this year a report lo city council by the consult- ing firm. Underwood MeLellan and Associates, pushed the fig- ure up to On Aug. 11. when bids for construction of the actual plant (the major item in the facili- ties required) were opened, it was found that the lowest was S3 49J.OOO, or about 14 per cent over the estimate. This brought the cm-rent total estimated cost to about S-4.5 million. The next problem, one the city is working on right now, is to come up with a formula for sewage charges that would help pay for capital and opera- ting costs without putting any undue burden on either indus- try or domestic users.
