Drive Ph. 328-7751 Flow of Oldman said adequate By STEVE BAREIIAM Herald Farm Writer F. A. Nelson, chairman of the Alberta Irrigation Projects As- sociation, has expressed con- cern over recent applications by the city Of Lethbridge for in- creased flows in the Old m a n River. Speaking at the annual meet- ing of ALPA Friday in Lethbridge, Mr. Nelson said the request is unnecessary because the present flow in the nver meets the city's requirements, and also that any increase would only serve to dilute pollu- tion. The city's request to govern- ment has been the cause of con- siderable controversy recently between the Oldman River Regional Planning Commission and the AJPA. The legal mininrum water flow in the river at present is 120 cubic feet per second, but an experiment proposed by the water resources division Of the Alberta department of agricul- ture asks that the PFRA ad- just the flows to 400 c.f.s. in the summer and 600 c.f.s. in the winter. Mr. Nelson said that dams within the St. Mary River Im gation District were built to irrigation. If any water is ta ken from storage, the use: whether a farmer or the cit; is subject to a water rate. JJ estimates it would cost the Cit of Lethbridge about per month for the proposed ii crease. A Lethbridge businessman re cently suggested that irrigatio districts were using river wa ter for irrigation purposes am by doing so cause a shortage o water in the river at Leth bridge. He ad'3cd that since th irrigation districts were contri buting to the problem of pollu tion by cutting the water sup- ply, they should be required tt help pay for pollution treat ment. "I hope this type of thinking -S not too common in Leth jridge, which prides itself on jeing the irrigation capital o Mr. Nelson said. T wonder how many busi nesses in the city owe their very existence to the income de- rived from irrigation, and wha >ercentage of their over al >usiness is derived from the arming areas in the south." Irrigation areas to receive funds It appears Alberta irrigation districts will finally receive fi nancial assistance from th federal government in the pro posed cost-sharing program. Speaking to about 80 dele gates attending the Alberta Ir rigation Projects Associat i o annual meeting Friday in Leth bridge, Bud Olson, federal min ister of agriculture, said fina details of the federal partiei pation should be available with in a month. He indicated the final deci- sion to be handed down by gov- ernment would involve several million dollars. The cost sharing program is contained in a brief which was prepared about one year ago by the AIPA, asking for federal assistance in financing much needed rehabilitation of I QUALITY DENTURE I CLINIC I EDDY DIETRICH I Certified Dental Mechanic I Capitol Furniture Bfda.

Mr. Olson added that it is the federal government's inten- tion to do (he whole job on major irrigation structures, in- cluding engineering, financing and construction. There does seem, however, to be some discrepancy in the def- inition of major structures. As set down m Prairie Farm Re- habilitation Administration rul- ings, a major structure is one which costs in excess of or one which handles water at 50 cubic feet per second or more. Mr. Olson suggested that the definition set down by the PFRA, a federal body, may be subject to changes.

Education in state of affairs' By JIM WILSON Herald Education Writer EDMONTON Education today is "in a disastrous state of it is not equipped to assist mankind to overcome the "catastrophic" future man- kind faces and it must now change radically if it is to be- come "an instrument for the survivability of humanity." In these frightening terms, futurologist Warren Ziegler, co- ordinator of the Syracuse Uni- versity Research Corporation's educational policy research centre introduced a potential future for Albertans in the year 2005. He was speaking to 250 invit- ed delegates to the Congress on the Future Education, co- COMPLETE CARPET AND LINOLEUM INSTALLATION HAMILTON'S FLOOR COVERING LTD. 909 3rd Ave. S.

The long awaited Chinook, predicted Friday, was blowing over the city this morning, about feet off the ground. At that time, with ground temperatures hovering near zero, readings upstairs in the Chinook were in the 20s. The new weather station at Waterton recorded readings this morning nearing the 30 above mark while Lethbridge residents were still coping with below zero temperatures. Temperatures of 20 to 30 above today should continue a least through Sunday. The weather office says tomorrow may even be a little warmer The winds, of course, will be from the west, strong am gusty.

"Education is a specialize and powerful instrument socialization by which we a tempt to impose the past upi our childrens1 future."

Knowledge will continue to increase in an ever rate, Mr. Ziegier said, but "what of wisdom? In recent times we have not relied on education to produce practical wisdom. "But now we are in desperate need of practical wisdom to cope with our future, and the disaster of education in today's world is that it has ap- parently lillle present capacity as a system to produce wis- dom." Constant, inventive planning is needed today to allow edu- cation to gain ground in its search for future relevance, and in order to give children the opportunity to cope with living, he said. As partial steps toward solu- tions, lie suggested more pub- lic participation in designing educational goals, with full rec- ognition of both the results of leaving education as it is, and of changing it and thus, chang- ing the social attitudes of the students. Planning must range over many years, not just the next two or three, or it will be caught flat footed with chang- es it did not anticipate already being a reality. The system of planning must be flexible, since it is based essentially on intuition and guesswork, and as life changes, so must education change.

CALL OWEN AGENTS FOR ALLIED VAN LINES EDMONTON Congress on the Future Education, is a nicely packaged public rela- tions gimmick offering partici- pants no opportunity to offer their proposals on future needs for education, about 25 per cent of conference delegates de- cided Friday. They held a special break- away meeting during the eve- ning sessions of the congress, co-sponsored by the Worth commission o h educational planning ard the Alberta Hu- man Resources Research Council, to plot a course of ac- tion for Saturday's conference sessions. About 250 Albertans are at- tending the conference, and 67 met separately, deciding to re- quest the organizers to revise Saturday's agenda to allow a debate from the floor. Delegates include people of all ages and from all walks of life, and the breakaway. group was representative. Its mem- bers charged that the confer- ence assessment group ses- sions, which divide participants into smaller groups following each speaker, denied the oppor- tunity to discuss other topics, i another termed it "a sounding Speakers, they said, were n completely relevant to Albe ta's future social and educ tional needs.

They said people discussed the speakers' addresses them- selves, instead of how to try to avoid the rather frightening fu- tures they forecast for Alberta, including such things as 35 per cent unemployment and dras- tically increased alienation of youth and many other groups. Arnold Styrnatka, an execu- tive of the Metis Association of Alberta, said his association had tried to present a special brief, but had been told the con- gress was too structured to al- low changes. He said he repre- sents Alberta Metis "who are ready to be heard." Others complained that the congress offered many long speeches from previously pre- pared texts. They said the speeches should have been copied, distributed several weeks in advance to all par- ticipants and the 90 minutes given for each speech should have been turned over to dis- cussion from the floor, with the person who wrote the paper. They also suggested the con- ference was specious, since it was suggesting education could change the future without tak- ing into account the related economic and social changes necessary for education to suc- ceed. The breakaway group made several proposals: Worth commission should sponsor a public hear- ing to allow everyone in the province to question its mo- tives, its sincerity and its methods of operation, before its report in 1972; commission, the HRRC or another group should sponsor some "peoples confer- ences" similar in some ways to the futures congress, allowing everyone to attend but focus- ing each conference on a dif- ferent social area, including students, the Metis, Indians, laborers, pro fessionals, teach- ers, welfare recipients and oth- ers; should be a follow- up to the futures congress, al- lowing fuller discussion and re- porting by delegates. The futures congress cost about exclusive of speakers' fees, and most other people attending paid most of their own expenses. About 15 Lethbridge resi- dents are attending the confer- ence, but only one attended the breakaway session. Entertaining? REMEMBER HOYT'S RENTAL SERVICE 0 Liquor Dispenser (3 tap) 5 and 9 oz.
