Bomber Scoring Train Heads'Home BROOKS (Special) United States Strategic The Air Command bomber radar scor- ing train left this Alberta com- munity today heading for a winter assignment south of the jorder, following a six-month our of duty in Canada. The train left, in two stages, with the work train (radar equipment) destined for Mil- ord, Utah and the rest of the rain heading for Hill Air Torce Base in Utah. Train Commander Maj. Fames G. Hovingh Eaid the rain will be reassembled at Vlilford to continue the low evel flight training for B-52 bombers stationed in western continental United States. He said the departure from he Brooks area was a sched- uled matter since all three trains are moved to new loca- tors every six months. "The effectiveness of any lo- cation fades after this time due o the expertise of the bomber he said. "In addition, the air force at- empts to keep the trains in the outhern part of the U.S. in the ivinter. Although the trains can perate at temperatures in the 0 degree below zero range the cost of operation rises dra- matically." Maj. Hovingh said he could not anticipate when another train would come to C a n a d a but as NATO agreements with Canada direct, it will be com- ing back. He said he didn't anticipate this for more than one year due to the familiar- ity factor. He said the mission in Can- ada was a success with an av- erage of 30 to 35 planes scored each week. "This is relatively low compared to some sites in the U.S. where up to 350 planes ave scored each day. "The long distance from home bases and the additional paper work necessary when an American plane crosses an in- ternational border can be attri- buted to the lower plane count." The six-month mission in the Brooks area has meant an eco- nomic boon to the community with operational -costs of run- ning the train adding about to the business life of the area. Included in the total, in ca- tegories, are water, trash removal, septic tank cleaning, laundry diesel fuel, food washing repairs, and miscellaneous, In addition to the operational expenses, tho 52 men stationed on the train spent most of their pay in the ccmmimity. Maj. Hovingh expressed ap- preciation for the tremendous co-operation from the local peo pie. "The men hate to leave be- cause of the friends found through branding bees, rodeos and other special occasions. "The other Canadian station near North Battleford, Sask. is also moving and as the com- mand for this station, we have heard nothing but good com- ments from the men stationed there." Harry Fowler, industrial co- ordinator for Brooks. said the community was sorry to see the men leave. "They were an excellent bunch of men and were good for the community business- wise and social-wise. "All of them mixed in very well with the community." He said, the departure of the train would not mean an eco- nomic depression for the area since the complex arrived about the .time the summer slow period was about to start.

Student Role Stressed In Social Studies Plan Teachers must learn to draw problem topics for class dis- cussion from their students, in- stead of supplying topics from their own experience [or Die students to discuss in Alberta's new social studies curriculum. Maurice Landry, director of elementary education for the Lethbridge separate school dis- trict, toid 44 teachers and ad- ministrators at the South West Alberta Social Studies Council meeting recently that about one-third of class time through- out the program should be spent discussing whatever Ihe students want to discuss. He said from tliis and from the remainder of the ne' system's curriculum approach students will learn to think and to reason, and learn to develop their own values system, rather than learn sim- ple lists of facts and dales as was done in social studies in the past. The new curriculum is based on a series of broad general goals of increasing complexity, each step based on the ones before it and it is designed to take a student 12 years to learn thoroughly. It does not have to be broken into the Theft Brings Jail Term Allan William Ensign of Lethbridge was sentenced in Magistrate's court Wednesday to 15 months in jail en two charges of theft. He was charged with theft of i860 from Don Calder Interiors Ltd. and theft of an article valued at less than S50 from a local church. The sentences are to run concurrent. Apparently Ensign took a money pouch out of an open safe at Don Calder Interiors while the manager was out of the office. In passing sentence, Magis- trate Lloyd Hudson said Ensign had been given a break before, which he didn't.deserve. Magistrate Hudson said ar- rangements would be made for Ensign to serve his sentence at a provincial jail other than at Lethbridge. traditional 12 grade-units, al-, sary, and must be coupled with though it can be. It is designed to encourage tho student to become directly involved in formulating and planning his own. education, and to help him to develop his own system of beliefs and per- sonal values on which he will live. He reminded teachers that a comprehensive public relations program will be necessary to explain the new program to parents, and to solicit their as- sistance.

Mr. Watson died following a single vehicle accident three and 3 half miles west of Mon- arch, when the car he was driv- ing plunged 200 feet down an embankment into the Oldman Rivsr. The jury was told in a pa'Ji- clogist's report Mr. Watson's blood alcohol content was high enough to impair his driving. The report also revealed the man suffered aspiration of gastric contents (vomit enter- ing the lungs) which also could have contributed to his death. There was some indication Mr. Watson could have been knocked unconscious before his car entered the river. A cut was found on Ihe man's head which, the pathologist said, may have rendered the man unconscious. The jury made no recom- mendations.

Teachers present complained that His curriculum guide pro- vided by the department of education for the program "says almost nothing." but some suggested the real prob- lem could ba a lack of under- standing of the freedom teach- ers now have in what and how they leach social studies. The program involves a multi-disciplinary approach to studies of social phenomena- social studies which uses 1 e a r n ing geography, history, political systems, sociology and similar disciplines as tools to leach students how to think, how to reason and to be more sensitive to other people and live as contributing mem- bers of society. In addition to the standard history geography core of studies, Ihe time devoted to the students' own interests and problems they observe will be used in the same fashion, as a further segment of the study tools. The former social studies program had changed little from the IBth century and was boring to most students; the new program is designed to be interesting to students be- cause it relates to what they themselves are interested in.
