Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 7, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, February 7, 1973 - THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD _ 35 For recreation Wilderness areas are needed By JOE BALLA Herald Staff Writer One of the greatest recreation needs in the southern portion of the province is the establishment of user - oriented wilderness areas. The Alberta Wilderness Association says an amendment is needed to the Wilderness Act to provide statutory protection to the user-oriented wilderness areas for such activities as fishing, hunting, horseback riding and berry picking. These highlights are contained in the second report made by the Alberta Wilderness Association and interested groups and individuals tot he government of Alberta. This study centres around 560 square miles of land in a generally west direction from Calgary. It is known as the Sheep-Elbow Wilderness Area. This area encompasses both foothills and front range along the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains. Bhe Alberta Wilder-siess Association says the Sheep-Elbow range is sufficiently large to offer a true wilderness experience. It can provide for the practice of the art of primitive travel by foot or horse, anrl with proper management and under strict regulation, it may provide Alb'ertans with satisfaction .that comes from a successful stalk, be it trout or big game. Within the wilderness there may be areas where it is desirable to impose strict statutory protection as provided by the existing wilderness act. Designation of such ecological areas should, however, be made only upon the recommendation of land managers and scientists. The study says there are numerous land use demands in the region and many of these land uses are incompatible: e.g., strip mining on prime big game range. The Alberta Wilderness Association also feels that if resource opportunity and commercial development are to be given precedence, then the opportunity to establish wilderness areas no longer exists, consequently, if new wilderness areas are to be established, land use policy decisions are required. The association feels that "perlmps as much effort will be required in future years toward obtaining clear title, as there has been in the past toward obtaining exploitation rights. "And there must be adequate compensation provided to companies and individuals who may be adversely affected by a re-designation of land use." "It should be noted that in the case of the Ghost, Siffleur and part of the - White Ghost wilderness areas, the mineral lease holders were allowed to exchange land." At the present time no provincial department of government or semi - independent board has a specific responsibility for reviewing and making recommendations for the establishment of wilderness areas. The Alberta Wilderness Association must, therefore, encourage as much as possible proposals from the citizenry at large to recommend proposals. While the decisions may require at least some political decisions, all the social and eco-ogical factors on a long-term basis must be looked at. /""^ SIMPSONS bears Fabric Smash!

Registered Canadian Trademark Yard Goods Wins creative arts award TORONTO (CP) - Donald Steven of Montreal has won the 1972 Canadian Federation of University Women creative arts award, it was announced here. Mr. Steven, a graduate of McGill University who is studying at Princeton University, wins a $500 award which takes the form of a commission for the composer. The award is administered by the Canadian Music Centre. Music kept alive OTTAWA (CP) - Music by Pierre Mercure will be employed in the next major production by Les Grands Ballets Canadiens, keeping alive the works of a brilliant Montreal musician who was killed at the age of 39. Mercure, who composed con-ceil music for orchestras, chamber groups, voice and electronic synthesizer, was killed in 1966 in an automobile accident in Avallon, France. He was born in Montreal and studied music there and in Paris, and was winning international recognition at the time of his death. Ludmilla Chiriaeff, founder and artistic director of the Grands Ballets, said hi an interview she intends to choreograph one Mercure work for the company's next production, and to invite three other choreographers to do other Mercure scores to make a whole evening ct his music. Mme Chiriaeff was here for the opening of a four-city tour by the Grands Ballets, which moves Wednesday to Sher-brooke, Que., and will play later in the month in Montreal and Quebec City. The current tour includes works by Igor Stravinsky, Carl Orff, and Reinhold Gliere. Opening night last Friday won acclaim from Ottawa critics, one of them calling it a beautifully-balanced feast.
