Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 23, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE IFTHBRIDGE HERAID SalurHay, September 53, 197? agree: re expensive Canadian educators gener- ally sgreo (hat the cost of edu- cation is becoming excessive ill relation to other areas of the economy, says Werner Schmidt, academic vice president at the Lethbridge Community Col- lege. Mr. Schmidt, just returned from a three-day conference of the Canadian Education Assoc- iation in Winnipeg. While educators conceded that education is taking more than its share of the total tax dollar, they failed to offer any concrete suggestions on how costs could be curbed, Mr. Schmidt said. The purpose of schools also came in for lengthy discussion and once again, there was a general agreement that schools really don't know where they are going, particularly public schools. "The need for a clear defini- tion ol tho purpose of schools really came through said Mr. Schmidt. "There was a suggestion that If we knew what our goals were, the amount of money being spent now wouldn't seem excessive." Mr. Schmidt said he was im- pressed that educators were talking seriously about the purpose of schools. This sug- gests that the crunch Is on, he said, and schools have to be more aggressive in telling peo- ple about what they are getting for their educational dollar. Between 800 and people, Including ministers and deputy ministers of education from every province, attended the conference. Commenting on the announce- ment that the universities and colleges commissions will be dissolved on March 31, 1973. he said he wasn't surprised that the government is moving that quickly on the Worth Report recommend ation. "What docs surprise me is that they announced it would happen before there was pub- lic reaction to the report." Mr. Schmidt added that he feels the abolition of the com- missions is a good move. "I think things will work a little faster now and I don't feel co-ordination will be hin- dered because most of the com- mission people will still be work- ing for the he said. City council to meet U of L landed by its visitors CORRECTION The Herald said In a story Friday that It was okay to shoot white swan. "Not true." An avicl district hunter, upon reading the story, phoned The Herald and said: "That's wrong. And If believed a lot of people are going to get into a lot of trouble."

"Your university was con- ceived and constructed by south- ern Albertans, not by govern- said Mr. Foster. "It will grow, not because of gov- ernment, but because of you. It is your university and it needs and deserves your support." Mr. Foster described the U of L as "unique" in the field of post secondary education. The traditional presentation of honorary degrees was also a part of Fridays' activities with former Alberta premier Senalor Ernest Manning; Dr. Claude Blsscll, former presi- dent of the University of Toron- to, Roloff Beny, internationally- known artist and photographer; and Chief Judge L.

ISSli Booze holding back Indians It seems booze Is the major single hangup holding Indians back. At least that was the mes- sage projected at a recent one- day workshop on Indian prob- lems at the University of Cal- gary. Lack of education and Inade- quate education facilities for treaty Indians were evidently placed into a secondary role to the liquor problem by those in attendance. Most of the Indi- an resource people at the work- shop were alcohol councillors or associated with alchollsm prevention groups. The resource persona Includ- ed Indians from throughout Al- berta and from Montana, Washington, and North Dakota. Geared to southern Alberta Indians, the purpose of the workshop was "to bring to the forefront, social issues and problems that affect Indian peo- ple and communities, and to In- vestigate some alternative pro- posals in resolving both per- sonal and'societal problems. Discussed were old and new methods of prevention and counselling. The problem of the arrested Indian and his lack of know- ledge of rights also came under tire. However, the estimated 200 persons attending said that mucii more effort to combat the growing "epidemic" of alcohol- ism among Indians must be un- dertaken.
