What's more, at its peak the group had about jCO persons involved in discussions. Perhaps Ihe group's most im- portant contribution to (he an- nual meeting was to get a reso- lution before the annual meet- ing calling on all out support lo halt ihc erosion of towns and communities with populations of residents and less. Mr. Clark, who now lives in Edson, Alta. claims that na- tional government policies have helped to put the small rural community on a "downhill slide" and increased the drift of rural people to the cities.

Yet, Mr. Clark says are currently in a program of actively destroy- ing these communities. What Mr. Clark wants is an j equally vigorous program of preserving these communities I in a way that would benefit the communities, the congested cit- ies and the people who want to remain in the smaller towns or escape from the cities to them. One reason why national poli- cies are detrimental to smaller communities, says .Mr. Clark, is that we or at least public j servants have lost touch with I j them. One part of a major 1 resolution by the group says (hat public servants whose de- cisions seriously affect small communities should, wherever possible, have had personal ex- perience in small sabbatical in a different town or rural com- munity each year. TWO STRIKES THEM Perhaps the most significant part of the resolution deals with expertise. Mr. Clark points out that when a railroad decides to pull out of a small commurjiy it gathers together high-powered experts to state its case. Oppos- ing all these tcp-notch lawyers and accountants is often the tout's mild-mannered mayor. What chance has he got against a battery like that? So. Mr. Clark's group says we should let the small communi- ties have access to all the ex- pertise the big groups can mus- ler. He suggests formation of an agency composed of law- yers, economists, accountants and so on who could state the community's case with force and eloquence. The agency would be supported by federal provision and local govern- ments. L'o-operate CHURCHILL, Man.
