"We're taught to fear our teacher, at least a bit, from the time we start Grade 1. The teacher insists on immediate and strict control of everything even going to the washroom. "And by the time we get to high school it's often like a prison must be." A trustee from Winnipeg agreed: "We find that our most militant students are the ones with good marks, who are able to pass easily through the sys- tem and who have had less reason to learn to fear their teachers because they've al- SAVE 60% ON MUFFLER REPLACEMENTS WE HAVE: A MUFFLER FOR MOST CADS FREE INSTALLATION 10 MINUTE INSTALLATION LIFETIME GUARANTEED MUFFLERS FREE INSPECTION AND ESTIMATES ALL AT IIMUTE UFFLER INSTALLATIONS Phone 328-8134 509 6th Avenue South ways been on top in grades She said Winnipeg has set up a small school in a regular city home for drop-out students wh< wish to return to school but can't face the rigid and often unfair normal school system. "We have a few of our bes teachers in that house, anc their classes are simple, anc held around a few the Winnipeg trustee said. "And we've found that many stu- dents who seem to be doing all right in the regular schools are asking if they can be transfer- red to the house school be- cause they see it as a place to feel freedom." The student said one cf the major sources of classroom fear was the power the teach- ers could exercise through grades and the' general fear of failure.

A school principal in the seminar session said hs was concerned that if a school did not hold regular examinations fail some of the students writing them the student population would not learn that in adult life' everyone must learn to face failures. "I don't think you see things accurately the stu- dent The student's classmates make sure outside of school that he or she isn't always successful' There are other ways in school of learn- ing that you don't always suc- ceed: for example, when a school project you're working on doesn't work out after you've spent a lot of time on it. "But then you learn that you can't always succeed you don't get branded as a failure because an examination says so." Hospital Board Impatient With Health Departi By MARGARET LUCKHURST Herald Staff Writer Members of the Lethbridge Municipal Hospital board Thursday expressed graving impatience with the provincial department of health in deal- ing with the board's repeated requests for expansion of the hospital's existing facilities.

Request has also been made for assistance in establishing a 20-bed psychiatric wing in the hospital. Charles Virtue, board chair- man, reported he 'and hospital administrator Andy Andrea- chuk made a special trip to Ed- monton to urge health minister James Henderson to some posi- tive action in the implementa- tion of recommendations con- tained in the Blah- Commission on Mental Health report in this regard. "We laid it right on the Mr. Virtue said, "and told Mm we were fed up with trying to be nice and remaining patient. We felt the time had come when we had to say what we think without trying to butter anyone up. We made it clear, if the minister and government expect volunteers to partici- pate in hospital affairs he can not continue to frustrate theii concerns in community prob lems." .Mr. Andreachuk said thi; Inquest Called At Vulcan Coroner Dr. A.

Within a matter of a few days two members of the Pub- lic Works department and two from the health department came to Lethbridge to renew the situation. "It was simply another exer- cise in Mr. Andrea- chuk said. "We get these visits regularly but nothing comes of them. This past visit offered nothing b u t discouragement. The members of (lie public works seemed concerned only with the limitations of the air- conditioning, while the health department seemed to be un- impressed with everything ex- cept our basement." Terry Bland said he felt the board had been patient long enough and it was an insult to the members' intelligence to put up with continued brush- offs by the department when the Blair report and other com- missions and committees had indicated the need was there. "Why has there been no ac- tion to Air. Bland ask- ed. "Time and again we've had meetings with the minister only to be put down or turned aside. Why doesn't he even allow the renovation of a whig to a 20- bed psychiatric care ward Delegates Are Named At the monthly meeting of the Lethbridge Municipal Hos- pital board Thursday, four delegates from the board were named to attend the Alberta Hospital Association's conven- tion to be held in Lethbridge Nov. 12-13.

The board might just as well not meet at ell if al! we're going to do is pass budgets and accounts while the minister re- fuses to listen to us." After some discussion it was decided that health minister James Henderson had not had sufficient lime to act upon the report of the most recent offi- cial visit Sept. 14. "Mr. Henderson perhaps has not had sufficient time to re- view the public works and health officials Mr. Bland said, "so perhaps the board would be advised to wait another month at least to see what the outcome of this is."
