After that point, it becomes nothing but trouble and almost always is the basis for ill-feelhms between peoples. Look frequent references to anti-Americanism in Canada 1 colder mvsclf as anti-American as the next per- son, but that is not to say I am anti-pecplc. There is a distrac- Not long ago it seemed to mo there was nothing more admirable than'the Sums and Stripes and "0 Say Can You See Why can't Canada Iv like that, I would ask. Then." I hcd four years exposure to that flag and that song and' everything else patriotic and nationalistic within the United States. "My stro-c teelir.gs for nationalism diminished. You see. when the Americans sang their song and coveted their nag. they were not people they were merely crumbs in the only loaf in the bakery. And that loafs greatness must be maintained regardless of UK cost, the feeling goes. The words of one young patriot still slap me across the face: "The United States must live on it doesn't matter how many people die to accomplish this." I had" an immediate revelation. The difference between the United States and Canada is that .south of the border, tire country comes first, the people second, fn Canada, the oppo- site appears to me to U1 true. You could take that same person aside, talk to torn on most subjects and find he is knowledgeable, sensitive, humor- ous or aiiytlimg else ycu can attribute to a Canadian, a Rus- sian, a Briton or practically any nationality. But, touch his nationalistic side and lie becomes irrational, narrow-minded and ready to fight for his country, right or wrong. Somewhere before that point is where nationalism should end. Although nationalism is increasing in Canada, through pro- motion and the influence of such events as the Amchitka blast, it is still below Ihe critical level. That's good. It allows us to ex- press a pride in our country without committing ourselves to any and all policies pursued in the name of the symbolic banner. It tells the rest of the world we want to preserve our own independence ami culture, hut does so in a warm, sincere fashion and acknowledges that there is a world of other nations out there with similar desires. Our form of nationalism has just about reached the optimum level. Let's make sure it doesn't become the driving force in our lives. AMA instructors will teach Special instructors from the Alberta Motor Association will be hired to provide driver train- ing courses in the Lethbridge public school system. Dr. George Bevan told the public school board that this step is necessary if driver training is to be retained in the school system this year, be- cause of confusion surrounding the training cf outside person- nel to conduct the classes. "The matter has been in a state of flux for more than six months, resulting in the can- cellation of Driver Education 10 for the fall said Dr. Revan. "Lethbridge Collegiate is pre pared to proceed with driver education this spring but Win- ston Churchill is opting out un- til this fall." The AMA will receive per student for the driver train- ing program. Each student will be required I to pay for the training and the school board will pay a maximum of for each stu dent taking part. Flea Market open 5-10 p.m. Rotary festival Dec. 13 Canadian sheep indunMn'j can ncrease d By RIC SWIIIAUT Staff Writer The sheepman, with (he right moves in the right platrs, can build one of the strongest in- dustries in Canada according to a man who has been the route the post 40 years. Philip Rock of Drumheller said the Canadian sheep indus- try can he increased by 75 per cent without endangering the supply and demand situation "because that's the amount of lamb imported each year." Mr. Rock, who starred in the business in 1'Jill, saxl Ih-j industry needs a new grading system which would allow pro- ducers to give tile customer what he wants when he wants it. The buyer today wants lean meat and this mcsns producers will have to slart grading heavier lean carcasses. It would boost up the pro- ducer price and get away from the 21-ccnt-pcr-pound hmb.
