Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 9, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Ray A on y A r 1 T DETECT a groimdswcll which may bo preliminary to a storm wliich could threaten the ivory There is talk of shoring up throwing out buttresses in the direction of greater rele which tends to be in terpreted in terms of job prep University we are should be more utilitarian it should be more concerned with preparing young people for an economically pro ductive Let us examine this proposi Since there are more than job categories in North America it is difficult to see how any one institutional type could adequately prepare stu dents for all these areas of economic productivity or ser if not for all job for what propor tion The fact is of that universities are already direcL y and indirectly preparing stu dents for a great variety of jobs universities have numer ous affiliated schools and in stitutes social den archi community planning So universities right being economically I hear a suggestion that much which is currently being taught in universities does not have a direct rela tionship to the prospective ca reers of students there is too much that is divorced from real If real life is in terpreted simply in breadand butter terms then much of what happens in universities may be gloriously since I am con vinced that there is more to life tlian breadandbutter con Theres a in which has no immediate and direct rele vance to job situations and ca reer If people want ah education which is simply concerned with utilitarian matters they can move to trade techni cal or community all excellent institu but they dont do the job which tile university University education is not utilitarian in any narrow but it does have utility it is useful in so far as it helps some students to become aware of our priceless human heritage it helps some stu dents towaids a deeper under standing of the significance of human living in general and their own living in particu lar it is useful in so far as it opens up various fields of in quiry winch students can pur sue throughout their lifetime it is useful although it is concerned with content it is even more concerned with process the how

The personal capacity to be both play boy and professor is the basis of Pierre Elliott Trudeaus im mense political He has wooed the women with his charm while winning the men with The political

has been their only source of private Their husbands may provide generously for them from his but their independ their pocket has come in a monthly personal cheque from the federal gov Now Trudeau is going to take that independence by cancelling the family allow ance for families with incomes over The romantic Pierre becomes just another dominating a footnote in the long history of sexual poli The Prime Minister has a perfectly reasonable explana There are only ways to raise million to help the poor families in real One way is to raise taxes on tlie By Anthony Westell broad middle where all

has plenty ol land to meet its forestry and living space needs for the foreseeable according to a survey by government soil szientists and conservationists in of the nations take care of A Conservation Needs In ventory reveals that the na tions thanks to continual ly increasing is feed ing and clothing an increasing population even with reduced Since the previous inventory in population has in creased 24 yet crop land has declined by 10 mil lion acres and privately owned pasture and range has de creased by three million In the same 11 mil lion acres were added to urban and builtup areas a fig ure to warm a conservationists million acres were added to On the other the scien tists warn that threefifths of the present 67 per cent of pasture and range and 62 per c e n t of private forest land is not being treated with proper conservation The middle class is already grumbling about the weight of taxation so Irudeau did not want to increase that bur The alternative was to cut off family allowances to the relatively well and to double allowances to the Logical Of course it But the plan treats a man and his as one unit for financial and many families are not that way at An increase in taxes would fall mainly on the husband and Taking away the family allowance falls mainly on Uie And tens of thousands of mid dle class wives the sort of people who most admire Trudeau and go conscientiously to the polls to vote Liberal will bitterly resent Ihe loss of their This political danger was clearly recognized by Health and Welfare HEnister John Munro and others in the cabi net who fought for a different type of guaranteed income scheme but who lost that Another major political weak ness in the white paper is the disappointment of about old age pensioners or one half the Canadian politicians have been bidding against each other for years by raising pen sions and the elderly have come to expect a steady im provement in Much of the speculation before publica tion of the white paper led old people to believe that they could expect a But Trudeau had much the same choice here as he faced with family To pay more to those hi he had to raise taxes or cut back on those not in His solution in the case of pensions is a The government will find some of the extra by taxing or and the rest will be found by putting a ceiling of a month on payments to old people not in So the pensioners who are not in need because they have some private income are cut off from the increase in benefits they Fur they will not in future re ceive increases in step with the cost of so the value of their pension may actually de Munro and others in the cabinet argued against this polit ical and The counter of is that more people will gam from the white paper pro posals than will But the gains in many cases will be so small that they will arouse appetites rather than satisfy The real political question is whether with Ins potent mixture of and can now reason with tlie disillusioned women

strongly positive contribution to social individuals who can ana lyze problems and suggest solu Some contemporary govern ments seem to find it difficult to appreciate the fundamental non utibtarian orientation of of is quite since govern ments are immersed in bread andbutter and they are responsive to bread andbutter demands of their But some of our God oriented governments at least and surely Ben nett is not tlie only politician with a pipeline to God should realize that man does not live by bread alone nor butter There are more things to an education than preparing to get a Universities are for peoplo who are concerned with ex panding their enlarg ing then1 sharp ening their mental cultivating inter acting on more than a physical Personally I am of the opin ion that a university education should be FREELY available for all who want this kind of education and this kind of education should be a piereouisite for all those peo ple who are moving into peoplo centred medi social busi ness I suggest that any government with vision and true concern for the people will be prepared to give a strong lead and support university education maximally because of the longterm social benefits which accrue from such educa The social benefits of univer sity education do not have to be PROVED they have been demonstrated tlirough centuries of university The benefits of do have to be applied Universities aim at and have produced throughout the cen people who are equipped to deal with this thing called who are able to adapt to situations and csange situa and provide leadership without which the people would certainly Those who wish for a differ ent type of one more tiedin with jobs and ca should look elsewhere than at universities or perhaps universities themselves should have several streams within their own with a job oriented or as an addendum to the basic liberal arts Many universities do have this struc ture For those who want to dis pense with liberal arts alto gether and get down to the busi ness of learning a trade or there are the trade schools and vocational and community col leges every bit as important in the total educational system as the but serving

use or non use of Canadian textbooks in Cana dian schools because of the purchase of Ca nadian publishing houses by American com it is usually forgotten that it is not Ills publishing houses which

intersection Thou of law and morality these days than jail simply because they have used maii tte drug Tlie use and abuse of drugs are matters which deeply concern the the tlie judiciary not people

at least a modest con tribution to greater moral It is not with any disregard for the prob lems of law enforcement that we urge the repeal of most present statutes relating to pot it is precisely because present laws are impediments to legal justice and un realistic in their demands on public author ities that we have come to this We do not deny the existence of a grow ing drug problem of lifeanddeath ser But that very problem has been badly obscured by tlie indiscriminate lump ing of marijuana with such hard drugs and proven menaces as The turning to such hard drugs by increasing num bers of young people is not simply a consequence of Uie tensions involved in trying out new life styles in a society they regard as sick it at least in a result of the harsh penalties for pot at the diffusion of effective law enforcement under present There is as yet no conclusive medical evidence concerning Uie harmful effects of pot There is more persuasive evidence that nicotine and alcohol are harmful but our society does not in carcerate people for selling or smoking straight cigarettes in very many for the sale or consumption of li Tlie number is very large when one reckons the lives

provinces de mands for changes that would suit its purposes Three years Premier Daniel Johnson made it clear Uiat his Union Nationals government was putting pressure on the federal government to give Quebec a greater voice in im migration At that time it was reported that an agreement had been reautai by Quebecs provincial secre tary and Jean then manpower which would result in a great break through for provincially organ ized immigration If tlwre was such an agree clearly it has not worked for now the Bourassa gov eminent is reported to want changes to the immigration act whereby Ottawa would turn back immigrants intending to come to Quebec unless t h e v were willing to become part of the Frenchspeaking com Hie provincial government is disturbed because 10 many people coming to Quebec from abroad apparently see less ad vantage in becoming French speaking Quebecers than in be coming part of the English speaking Not long ago a survey showed that 80 per cent of the immigrant children who arrived in Mon treal in 1969 voted for English after being enrolled in French integration Tlie reason given for this leaning of the children was wrong information given to im migrants before they left then Plainly the federal govern ment would be ill advised to do anything about Quebecs re oilier than perhaps to correct ajiy misinformation that may be given and to use Urn art of persuasion on wouldbe immigrants to For what would happen if the law were changed and immigrants to Quebec at some later time opted to become Englishspeak or leave for other parts The request simply

growing that meUiods other than polite persuasion will have to be em ployed to convince Uie American collosus to recognize fundamental rights such as Uie working If Uie workers demands were exagger as
