Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 3, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta It THE IETHMIDGI HSRAID frlAiy, April 3, Poll Takeii Of Youngsters Early Marriages Unwise, Say U.S. Youth "Even though feel ma- tee enough for marriage, they are usually not." A 24-year-old Califomian said that when asked her opinion about early marriages among young people. Another Wisconsin lass echoed that feeling: "Marriage is something deep and wrioue, and young people can't mine this." Wefl, apparently, young people do realize this, a recent National Gilbert Youth Poll of over youths across the country shows. The results of this poll reveal that most of our nation's youth don't buy the promised joys of early connubial bliss 53 per cent, in fact. Only 25 per cent indkated they "were willing to risk the rigors of an early marriage nd a wary 22 pef cent re- used to comment at all. A strocg sectional feeling ;ss obvious.

The Alberta government has been atked by the people in the tnwnsites of Jasper and Banff to help them prepare and sub- mit a proposal to the federal government allowing the lown- sites to achieve local self-gov- ernment. Hugh Craig, president of the Waterton Lakes- Chamber o! Commerce, was not available for comment on if or when Waterton Lakes wants local self-government. Residents of 'the Banff and Jasper communities have ex- pressed a desire to have their townsiles made self-governing municipalities of Alberta. In a resolution introduced by Ed Benoil (SC-Okotoks-High passed in a voice vote in the legislature Tuesday said the legislature. should endorse the efforts of the people to ob- tain local self-government in municipal matters.

Or, as California lass commented: "I think a girl is too immature betov IS to face motherhood. She's not ready to settle down." Some of the more obvious reasons were barely voiced. For example, only 13 per cent indicated lack of fJMnaj-tal pre- paration ac' grounds, and only 5 per cent considered the pos- sible to their educa- tion as a dumping Mock. Thirteen per cent of females opposed to early marriages were socially oriented enough to oppose it because it re- stricted dating; or, x succinctly put by one young swinger from Michigan: "Have fun' before marriage." Of the JS per cent who con- sidered early nuptials O.K., 32 per cent were represented by enthusiastic 17 -18 year olds, while tbt under-17-year respon- dents clocked in at per cent.
