He added: "It will however necessitate more teachers but will help in reducing class loads. With the new system, which requires on a percentage basis 1 1/2 more teachers, and the population growth this year as well as the expected Fall enrollment, we will need an additional six teach- ers in the high school." He said that with a 58-minute class period and no scheduled study hall teachers will be expected to limit their lecture time and achieve a good balance between lecture and study periods . Computer scheduling of students, with regis- tration beginning next week, will be completed by the end of the school year, Maxim told the board. Selection of six subjects and two alternatives will be made during registration by juniors Monday, sophomores next Thursday, and fresh- men on April 1. Eighth grade parents will meet the night of April 1 and registration will follow the next day. Maxim told directors that three weeks after school begins in the Fall, registrations will be fed into the computer again for grade scheduling and attendance reports. Serving with Maxim on the scheduling com- mittee were Charles Wichlzer, Ed Hill, Donald Wilson, Robert Blomster, John Haberman, Rod Waddell and Richard Langum. Also announced was the plan to install nine vending machines in an area of the new gym- nasium to supply snacks, soups, sandwiches Legge of Calgary, berta, Canada, and grandchildren.

Maxim said there would be no operating costs with the vending machines and the district would receive a 10 per cent commission on sales of foods with a 20 per cent return on soft drinks and ice cream The cost to students was estimated at from 15 to 30 cents for soup and 35 to 65 cents for cold sandwiches, hot dogs and hamburgers. It was noted that milk would continue to be sold through the federally supported program at 4 cents a half-pint.
