Our irrigation systems are desper- ately short of funds for drain- age. Highway 30 slill is not paved and the cost of wel- fare is spiralling unchecked. f do not pretend to have all the answers lo oi'r problems nor do 1 suggest that the pres ent government is wrong in ev- crvlhing it does.

A matter of mnjnr concern lo all Alberlans is ihe manner in which non renewable re- sources are used. They must he treated in a manner thai will permit a maximum utilization and minimum of waste with the minimisation of damages to the environment. But if I have lo uiuose between "scenery and I'll choose the bean- ery.

CHARLES DRAIN Social Credit (MLA for Pincher Creek- Crowsnest since 1967, Charles Drai i has been involved in lum- bering, mining and contracting in the Crowsnest Pass through- out his working life.

A for- mer president of the Blairmorc Civic Association, Mr. Drain is a member of the Coleman Fish and Game Association.

He and his wife have raised four My objective in seeking re- eleclion is to further the inter- ests of the people of my con- stituency in the best way I know how. It is my feeling that while considerable work has been done in making the Workmen's Compensation Act far more equitable, there are cert a i n gray areas that could be re- formed. My personal belief is that programs designed lo help people help themselves arc best for Alberta.

He received his early schooling at Cluny and attend- ed the Universities of British Columbia and Montana. Mr. Johnson is married with two children. For the past five years, they have resided in Pin- cher Creek, where Mr. Johnson teaches high One of the major issues fac- ing Albcrtans is the utilization of oi'J' province's natural beau- ty and resources for the maxi- mum benefit of our people. 1 feel that the time has come when we must make long range plans for land use that includes provision for parks, wilderness and recreation. We can no longer let the eco- nomic feasibility for extracting natural resources be the sole criteria for land use. Our con- servation of resources pol icy must be geared to how it will affect the potential for a full, meaningful, happy hfe, for pres- ent and future generations. Pressure of close living will increase as urbanization in- creases. City and town dwell- ers with shorter work weeks and increased leisure time need relaxation outside the cities and towns to escape the pressure of urban living. We must ensure that our resource policy does not remove this badly needed escape valve. The time bas come to lake drastic steps to get the econ- omy off its high dependence on natural resources revenue. We must make maximum efforts at obtaining more secondary in- dustry in order to create more job opportunities and also for establishing an alternate lax base to natural resource reve- nue.

He was educated in Alberta schools and attend- ed university in London, Eng- land, and G u e 1 p h, Ontario, where he received his degree in veterinary medicine, after j serving four years in the army during the war. Married with six children. Dr. Smith is a puli- Jic school trustee and has serv- ed on the municipal agricultur- al advisory I would describe myself as an economic nationalist and a conservationist. By this 1 mean tlKt I truly Irelieve we must stop the sellout of our natural resources to foreign interests and also regain control of as much of our economy as is pos- sible. I believe that our re- sovrces must be used for the benefit of Canadians and must be preserved for future gener- ations as well. As a conservationist, I would support policies that would take the overall effect on our ecol- ogy including natural beauty into account, instead of merely concerning owselves uiih pure- ly economic factors and the al- mighty dollar. Above all, 1 would clamp down hard on polluters, and 1 would certainly look for ways to stop the despoilers of natur- al beauty such as the strip miners at Mount Bundle. I would give my full support to the New Democratic Party Policy for preserving the fam- ily farm and in particular I would support policies making financing available for young people who wish to go into farm- ing. I would follow the enlighten- ed ted of Saskatchewan and Manitoba in bringing in decent labor legislation and would par- ticularly work for better com- pensation pensions for the vic- tims of industrial accidents and long term industrial diseases such as black lung and silieosis. Wildlife unaffected by Lamiate EDMONTON (CP) Wild- life has been unaffected by Hie use of the chemical lannate to combal the infestation of Ber- tha army worms in Saskatch- ewan and Alberla, says Rich- ard Fyfe, pesticide biologist for the Canadian Wildlife Service. He said field observations of birds and other wildlife in rape fields prior lo, during and fol lowing the spray operations have found no ill effects from the chemical. Investigations of persistent rumors of larcn scale bird kills have also been proved lo be unfounded. Mr. Fyfe said lesls have shown the chemical breakdown of lannate is much faster than that of dieldrin, endrin and I DDT, which was formerly used in insect control and had re- i suited in serious residue prob- i Jems in wildlife, crops and j dairy products.

NEW DF.LIII (Router) In- dia's atomic power planners want lo develop Iwo new big nu-, clear power projecls lo provide a dramatic hoosl in food, in- dustrial production and much- needed jobs. Each nf Ihe projecls proposed by the government's atomic cn- ergv department, industrial and agricultural installations would be centred around a nuclear power stalion. The government hasn't made any decision on the proposals, but more detailed studies are under way and department offi- cials are confident of a favora- ble decision. The atomic energy depart- ment already operates one nu- clear power plant on a commer- cial basis, and is building two more, one with fore i i collabo- ration, The department's annual re- port says detailed investigations have been carried out on two sites for the proposed projecls in the western slate of Gujarat and the other in the Gangotic Plains of north India around Delhi. NEED S2 BILLION The two projects would need a total investment of about ?2 bil- lion. Studies for the Gujarat pro- in the Kutch-Saurasnli a centred on a dual- purpose plant to produce power am? desaull sea water for agri- culture in the arid area. Suggested for the site in India is a big reactor whose power would be used for indus- tries and lo provide energy for thousands of lubewclls. This would exploit underground water believed abundant in Ihe region. The dual-puiposc Kutch-Saur- ashtra development, estimated lo cost about million, would have a plant producing megawatts of two reactors of fiOO megawail.'- 150 million gallons of fresh water a day. Along with this would be a ni- trogenous fertilizer plant with a capacity of nearly tons a year, a phosphate fertilizer Pot fanciers raid govt. drug patch OTTAWA (CP) Pot fan- ciers, including a talented high jumper, raiding the well-fenced federal marijuana patch, arc endangering Cana- dian research into the effects of marijuana smoking. "This is really senior food ancj drug directo- rate officers lold a news con- ference Monday detailing three raids this monlh on the guarded thr'ee-acre marijuana crop in the capital's west cen- tral seclion.

Morri- son, dsputy director-general. "Tbere is evidence a small number of planls were lost. He gnt away wilh six, seven or eight." The trouble is that the mari- juana field contains some unique strains of the plant garnered from around the world. The directorate had the federal agriculture depart- ment experimental farm growing them lo provide a standardized form of mari- juana for research. "It was just blind luck that none of the rare strains were Dr. Morrison said. "We have had three as- saults on the he said.

PLAN LAND USE Plans call for bringing about acres of waste land under intensive cultivation using de- salted water. The total outlay on the olher project in north India is esti- mated at SI.2 uiUwn. The atomic poiver unit would produce megawatts with two reactors. II irould be used to power a nitrogenous fertilizer plant of Ions capacity, a phosphate plant of tons and a plant lo produce Ions of aluminum a year. The rest of Ihe nuclear power would be used to power nearly lo boost food production. The department says the pro- ject would cover a folal of acres of land and the resulting increase in food production would be enough lo feed more than 25 million peo- ple. The department also esti- mates the two projects could provide employment for more than one million people.
