Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 11, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuesday, August 11, 1970 Jersey Member Of Parliament Ex-City Resident On World Trip By iHAUGAHGT LUCKHURST Herald Staff Writer "Not many Canadians know enough about the island of Jer- Allen Clarke, one of its residents said in an interview in Lethbridge Monday. "This is very unfortunate for it is the loveliest of the Chan- nel Islands and fast becoming a mccca for tourists. But many Canadians skip from England to the continent and bypass Jersey. They don't kuow what they are missing." Mr. Clarke, along with his wife, is midway through a year long round the world cruise. He was born in Letu- bridge in 1909. "My father was an assistant agent with the CPR at the time.

In a telephone interview with Mr. Black Monday, he stated that the reason he had not re- signed before now was that he was waiting to see whether or not a byelection would be call- ed due to the resignation in the spring of Dr. William J. Cran- U of L Plans Subject Of Lecture University of Lethbridge Act- Ing President Dr. Bill Beckel will be special lee turer Wednesday at noon in the U of L Kate Andrews Building lec- ture theatre, in the final ad- dress of the special university summer lecture series. Dr. Beckel will discuss the present and future plans of the U of L, particularly concerning its building expansion and aca- demic objectives. A display will be set up fea- turing the U of L model of its West Lethbridge campus to be opened in September, 1971. Dr. Beckel will also illustrate his address with slides and dia- grams. The lecture is open to the public. ley from the separate school board. "It seemed to be ratter un- necessary to call a byelection simply to replace one board Mr. Black said, "and I have not heard what steps have been taken to re- place Dr. Cranley." The vacancy created by Dr. Cranley's resignation was fill- ed by Eric Schill when he was elected by acclamation May 27. According to section 27d, of the hospital district regula- tions, "if a board member ceases to be a resident of the hospital district .which he rep- Romanians To Show Tractors A public demonstration of Romanian built tractors will he held Wednesday at the Jim Garret farm, one mile north- east of the Lethbridge Re- search Station from 1 to 6 p.m. Theadore Puskas, supervisor, Theadore Buda, tractor design- er and John Loud, machine technician, make up the Ro- manian trade delegation. The purpose of the mission is to baiter with Canadian farm- ers on cutter and canner beef, rapeseed and wheat. GORDON BLACK resents, he is disqualified as a member and the board shall immediately declare his seat vacant." Dr. P. B. Rose, provincial deputy health minister, told The Herald in an interview that the rules and regulations con- tained in the Hospitals Act are still quite specific. "While I am not familiar with the board sit- uation in he said, "it would seem that Mr. Black acted unwisely in not adhering to the regulations and resign- ing immediately. It keeps things from getting compli- cated." Jim Graham of Taber, chair- man of the auxiliary board, said that Mr. Black doubtless wanted to carry on for a few months after his move to Cal- gary "because he was so deep- ly involved in the new nursing home project." Mr. Graham said that as far as he knew "unless voters in Mr. Black's ward objected to him carry- ing on, provided he intended to resign in October, lie was pre- pared to do so." Mr. Black has served on the board since I960. Civic officials have indicated that a byelection is not neces- sary to replace Mr. Black's position of the auxiliary hospi- tal board. According to section 28 of the regulations "when a seat on a board becomes vacant, the board shall immediately notify the municipalities affected in writing and the council of the municipality with the largest population in the ward may ap- point a person to serve for the unexpired portion of the term of office." Lights Delay Preview Pageant The Travel and Convention Association of Southern Alberta is still awaiting word from a Vancouver firm on the rental of two huge searchlights to be used in a pricview of the pro- posed Whoop-Up Pageant. Association manager IVank Smith indicated earlier thi: month that .the preview woulc be held in August to an invitee audience, but the show, to be given at night in the river- bottcni, depends en the use of two 12-million candlepower lights. Whoop-Up Pageant, which has been in the planning stage for more than a year, com- prises a dramatization of im- portant southern Alberta his- torical events, such as the whiskey trade at Fort Whoop- Up, the arrival of the North West Mounted Police and In- dian activities of the 1870s. Mr. Smith said he expects word on the lights this week. Estimates indicate per- sons a night would attend the pageant for each of the pro- posed four performances, given in the area of the Lethbridge Kinsmen's Whoop-Up.

"I had every intention of re- turning to Canada after the Mr. Clarke explained, "but I was then married with a couple of children and it was extremely difficult to get pas- sage out of the country. We had visited Jersey and Liked it, so I moved the family there in- stead of Canada. I bought a bakery business and eventually reconstructed Fort Landeryou Suggests Parks May Be Tapped If Needed j ii By JOAN BOWMAN Herald Staff Writer Lethbridge MLA Jack Lan- deryou said Monday opposing views to proposed provincial wilderness legislation would he 'carefully considered" in the spring sitting of the legisla- ture.

Howe'ver, "if valuable min- erals are present in wilderness areas, we'd have to give it a lot of thought before stopping progress." The proposed legislation, Bill 106, was criticized late in July by local and provincial groups at a government sponsored public hearing in Lethbridge. The 18 groups represented wanted assurances that wilder- ness areas, once designated, would be preserved with no allowances made for mineral or drilling operations. Mr. Landeryou said Alberta has more provincial parks than any other province, with three federal paries and 35 to 40 pro- vincial ones. The Social Credit MLA sug- gested these parks or any wilderness areas would be tap- ped if needed to "keep the standard of living up." He said the city was told if lit could not find an alternative .source of gravel to the island in the riverbottom, "the islanr would have to go." (The government's remova of gravel from an Oldma. River island for building u highways near Lethbridge rais I ed a controversy in the city be- j cause gravel operations dis 'rupted natural vegetation anf "The city couldn't find an other source, so the island go." i At present, mining, logging and natural gas operations may be allowed in a wilderness area by an order-in-council. Wilderness organizations have expressed fears that Bil 106 will itself be passed by an order-in-council, which is de- cided behind closed doors, rath- er than publicly through the legislature. ALLEN CLARKE look on active part in civic af- fairs by entering Jersey Par- liament. "Jersey has the oldest legis- lative assembly in the Com- monwealth. Its position just off the coast of France encour- aged the Normans to colonize it back in the llth century. William conquered Brit- ain in 1066 he took along some Normans from Jersey. We like to say therefore, that England belongs to Jersey. The Queen is not referred to as such by the islanders; rather, she holds the title Duke of Normandy." "French was the official lan- guage until Mr. Clarke said, "and of course most peo- ple are bilingual, but speak French in a patois similar to French Canadian. Although the business of Parliament is con- ducted in English, French is used for roll call and prayers." J e r s e y is not large, Mr. Clarke said, measuring only about 14 miles long and eight miles wide. "We have a population of 000 and the largest per capita number of vehicles in the world, about There are over 800 hotels and boarding houses, so tourists have plenty to choose from. The weather is. extremely mild, protected by the-French coast and situated in the Gulf Stream. Naturally, our main industry is tourism, although agriculture and our Jersey tant." cow are very impor- As a Deputy MP of the Slates of Jersey, Mr. Clarke is president of the Social Security Commission. "There are no parties in our he said, "and there is no prime minister. The members all run as independents, and are elect- ed for their integrity and standing in the community. We do not get paid. The presidents of communities formulate pol- icy, but it has to be moved and voted on by all members the 52-member House." What makes Jersey a tourist attraction, apart from the scen- ery and weather? "Because of the low taxes and the fact that we have no death duties, we are one of the leading financial centres in the Mr. Clarke said. Like Switzerland, he said, be- cause of the low taxes, many major world companies do their hanking there. "We also have more millionaires per capita than any other area for its size, consequently, to keep them amused we have lots of fine entertainment in cabarets, and our eating places arf re- garded as outstanding." The Clarkes are travel- ling by trailer, will be head- ing through many larger Am- erican cities, where Mr. Clarke lectures to groups on the States of Jersey. "I'm not real- ly on a goodwill he said, "but a little promotion doesn't hurt."
