Thuri. to Closed Saturdays Retire at 60, Anderson says Herald Legislature Bureau EDMONTON People should retire at 60 rather than 65 because there aren't enough jobs to go around, the Social Credit MLA for Leth- bridge East told the legisla- ture Tuesday. John Anderson, in a non- government motion seconded by former Socred premier Harry Strom, called for the retirement of Alberta's civil servants at 60 and citizens across the country be eligible for the pension at that age- rather than the currant 65. The motion was talked out and dropped to the bottom of the order paper without com- ing to a vote. Mr. Anderson said modern technology has allowed one man in agriculture to do the work of 100 men 20 years ago. With more jobs being eli- minated, there are about 000 people out of work in Can- ada now, and that rate is in- creasing. Only during major wars, he said, was Canada without unemployment. There are about jobs in the country currently held by people aged 60 to 65 that could be freed for young- er people with a lower retire- ment age, he argued. Of the unemployed, he said, about are in the age group around 21. Teacher dispute report promised Herald Legislature Bureau EDMONTON Labor Min- ister Bert Hohol Tuesday promised the legislature a "major, important and final" report on the Southern Alber- ta teachers dispute later this week. However, he said he hasn't decided yet whether it will be a voluntary or a compulsory settlement to the 10 month- old contract dispute. Progress in negotiations be- tween the Alberta Teachers Association and the Southern Alberta School Authorities Association with the aid of provincial mediators is "positive enough" that the government hasn't decided yet to use compulsory ar- bitration, he said. Replying to Fred Mande- ville (SC Bow the labor minister said "I will be in a much better position in a day or two to make a major and an important and final report to the house The minister ended a two- week strike of teachers in rural Southern Alberta by ordering them to return to work April 2. Under the Labor Act, Dr. Hohol has the authority to impose a final or binding agreement. Legislature might debate creation story for schools Herald Legislature Bureau EDMONTON Education Minister Lou Hyndman Tues- day suggested he might dis- cuss the teaching of contro- versial issues in schools in Al- berta during debate of the department of education esti- mates this week or next. Ed Benoit (SC-Highwood) said numerous letters and petitions have been presented to the government calling for the teaching of the story of creation in addition to the current teaching of evolution in schools. The creation story as taught in the Bible should receive equal time in school curriculums, said Mr. Ben- oit, a fundamentalist preach- er. Education Minister Hynd- man said he might have a statement on the teaching of controversial subjects during the estimates debate. I Beaver hunt The battle with the beaver ended today with the capture of this 60-pound beaver in the Indian Battle Park region of the Oldman River. Seven beavers in all were killed to stop the destruction of poplar trees, with which the beavers were building a house in the river. A conibear trap apparently sanctioned by humane societies, was used to capture the beavers ranging in size from 20 to 60 pounds. Wildlife officials arranged the hunt.
