Each of the seven candidates for the five seats introduce! liimself and presented his plat form. Following is a summary of what the candidates had It say. JOHN BORAS (incumbent) "Establishment holds people down." After having to figh for his education Mr. Boras be lieves that education is of ui most importance. People have to fight for what they want am the best question for anyone who finds a problem is Mr. Boras is a lawyer and he wants the separate school to stay in existence, offering Ihe Catholic youth a chance for a good education. RON FABBI: "Give credit in high school for religion courses." Mr. Fabbi believes that the students should be given an insight into other reli- gions so they can compare. He would also like to be out of the zoning system. Pres- ently the separate schools Lethbridge are in a zone with Medicine Hat. This has made it difficult to negotiate with teachers to avoid threatening strikes. PAUL MAT1SZ "We in Alberta have a wonder- ful syslem for Catholic sep- arate school education. Mr. Matisz, a separate school bozrd trustee for 16 years, said Alberta is one of the few prov- inces which has Ihe govern- ment support for separate schools. He feels if he is re-elected that the system should be maintained and improved in the future. JOCK "Sep- arate schools are the comer stone of our youUis' religion Mr. Mulgrew feels that homes often Jack religious teaching for the youth, and the separate school must he maintained to fulfill this need. FRANK PETA: "The purpose of education should be to de- velop the whole person." Mr. Peta breaks education into three categories: Spiritual a most impor- tant emphasis should be placed on religion. Academic must provide the best possible background to continue in post secondary schooling. Economic must prepare the students to be a part of so- ciety. He suggests vocations in the separate school system. ERIC SCHTLL "To preserve and increase the Christian Catholic atmosphere in the separate schools." Mr. Scroll has three pre- school-age children. He would like to see them get Hie best Catholic separate school educa- tion. He believes that every stu- dent in the separate school sys- lem should be given the best education possible so he can compete fairly in society. E. S. V A S E L iS N A K: "We need a junior high school in this city." The ages of 12, 13 and 14 are when young people need some stability. He objects to the way junior high students are juggled around from one to another, wherever there happens to be room. Mr. Vaselenak, 46 years the principal of St. Basil's, stated hat in his opinion the past few rate school boards did not ive up to the Alberta Catholic 5 c h o o 1 Trustees Association uidelines. ff he is elected he will aim or; better teachers, better at- losphere, and better public re- ations, including an open door policy for school board meet- ngs." Water off Oct. 20 The Lethbridge Northern Ir- rigation District will be shutting the water off to all irrigation canals Oct. 20. Les Toth, general manager of LNTD, said although there has been limited fall irrigation, it has been a long, dry summer with moisture reserves very low. He urged farmers to take ad- vantage of the present good weather to complete fall irri- gation programs during the next weeks. Farmers are also requested CUFF BLACK, Certified Denial Mechanic BLACK DENTAL LAB Lower Level MEDICAL DENTAL BLDG. PHONE 327-2832 to make sure their stock ponds and reservoirs are filled by Oct. 20. Towns and villages drawing water from LNID ca- nals are also asked to make sure reservoirs are filled. Mr. Toth said this has been a year of heavy demand for water with district waterworks taxed tf the limit. He said with the slow melting of snow in the mountains the supply of water was good dur- ing the irrigation season with the result more acres of land have been irrigated this year. "With the majority of the farmers in the district using sprinklers, there was a more efficient utilization of he said. Immediately after water shutoff, the district will pro- ceed with bridge repair and renovation of structures. Peter Lehman and first bear of the season.

A fish and game representa- tive said there is a special archery hunting zone near Banff National Park and the archery hunting season opens one week earlier than the fire- arm season. In the special archery hunt- ing zones and during the early bow hunting season archers are allowed to wear camouflaged clothing and disguise their bows with special camouflage covers. When hunting in regular hunting zones during the norm- al season bow hunters must wear the same bright colored protective clothing as the fire- arms hunters are required to wear. There have been 10 archery hunting licences sold in Leth- bridge this season. With education minister Trustees seek special meeting By RON CALDWELL Staff Writer Officials of Lethbridge School District No. 51 are seeking a meeting with Education Minis- ter Lou Hyndman to determine where the minister stands on the divided school year experi- ment in Lethbridge. The education minister in the previous government an- nounced in June that the ex- perimental project, which was to run for three more years, would have to be modified. Local public school board of- ficials hope to meet with Mr. Hyndman when he visits the city Oct. 9, to see what plans he has for the future of the di- vided school year. Since the experiment started two years ago, Grade 12 stu- dents have been writing exam- inations in December and early June, which are prepared and marked by local teachers. This enabled them to ente university in January rathe than the following September and to attend logically-plannec semesters through the scnoo year. The experiment has drawn strong support from teachers and students, in surveys done in the past and again in the current battle. Public schools superintenden Dr. 0. P. Larson polled teach ers in the high schools involved and found a large majority fa vored continuation of the pro gram. Teachers at Winston Church hill High School were unani mously in favor, while teachers at the Lethbridge Collegiate In stitute showed slightly less sup- port. Students who have written to the board have overwhelmingly Work experience program approved The Lethbridge public schoo >oard has given final appro' to a unique work experience jrograrn for a special group o: senior high school students in the city. On Monday, a small group of slow learners will join the work orce while still continuing heir education. Their day wit split equally between regu- ar classes and their jobs. Bob Gall, director of school services for the district said thi jurpose of the program is to provide the students with work experience and to improve their ability to meet and work with jeople. "In previous years, these stu- lents simply graduated from he senior class and attempted seek employment, often un- Mr. Gall said. "This program will provide them with social skills, under- landing of employment rela- tionships and practical work kills." Initially three or four stu- ents will be involved in the rogram but as many as 10 -ould be taking part before the chool year is completed. "We are starting on a limit- 1 basis in order to attend to re program more r. Gall said. Several local firms have greed to hire the students and r o v i d e special assistance, where required. These include: Devon Nursing Home, Simpson- Sears, Southern Printers, Ericksen's Family Hestaurant Bert and Mac's and Northern Bus Lines. Several other companies have expressed a willingness to par- ticipate in the program and they will be involved when the project expands. The students will change jobs about every three months to give them a wide sampling of the job market and to enable them to acquire additional skills. They will be paid a minimum wage of 85 cents an hour. Concern was expressed by some board members that some students may feel tempt- ed to quit school and become full-time employees. "We have direct contact be- tween the school and the var- ious employers, so if the stu- dent is offered a full-time job the situation will be discussed closely by all those Mr. Gall said. "That situation could develop but I think we're ready to han- dle he said. endorsed the divided school year concept. While the public school board has taken a definite stand against the government's deci- sion, the separate school board has not yet decided what action to take. Separate school trustees are expected to make their deci- sion at a special meeting Thursday at noon, The importance of (he sepa- rate board's decision was stressed by several public school board trustees and offi- cials. "If the separate school board supports it we can produce a strong Dr. Larson said. "If the iwo boards are op- posed, then our case will be very much weakened." The divided school year issue arose when the department of education bowed to pressures from several larger school dis- tricts who wanted to offer sim- ilar modified school year pro- grams but were not being al- lowed to do so.
