Thurs. 9:00 to 9:00 Closed Saturdays City record good for attracting new Canadians Lethbridge has one of the best records in Canada for attracting prospective Canadian citizens, a judge of the citizenship court said Tuesday. Judge V. A. Cooney, who made his remarks before swearing in 17 new Canadians from 10 different countries at a sitting of the citizenship court, said the irrigated agricultural basis of the area is' in part responsible for the large number of immigrants moving to the fegion. Last year the court handled 20 per cent more citizenship applications than in 1971, Judge Cooney said. Speaking at the ceremony, where the new citizens were U of L polls open today Students at the University of Lethbridge will vote Friday to select the governing council of the students' society. Nine vacancies on the council are being contested by 17 candidates, and the final decision rests with the 1,500 full-time and part-time students eligible to vote. The position of chairman of the council is being sought after by four people - Don Oli-pbant, Kenneth Bartlett, Khym Goslin, and Max Zaugg. An advance poll opens today from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., and will be held again Thursday evening in the same time slot. Regular polling begins at 9 a.m., Friday and polls close at 4 p.m. The council, among other things, organizes dances, publishes a newspaper, and administers a $35,000 budget. given an oath of allegiance, he said that Canadian-born �citizens know far less about the true meaning of citizenship than those who were born in foreign countries. "This is a new country. Some of you have come from countries where traditions and culture go back thousands of years," Judge Cooney said. Inspector Glen Gordon, commanding officer of the Lethbridge RCMP sub-division, told the court that with the newly acquired "rights and freedoms, there is a responsibility to defend Canada from those within, or outside the country, who seek to destroy our democratic way of life." Police forces have been established to maintain law and order, Insp. Gordon said, asking the new citizens to support the work of the police. Following  the ceremony, members of the Dr. F. H. Mew-burn OBE IODE chapter sponsored a tea for the new citizens.

Gov't officials will travel to Vulcan to talk land use Evolution issue (still alive' Herald Legislature Bureau EDMONTON - Did man descend from the apes or was he created by God? Education Minister Lou Hyridman, admitted Tuesday the issue is still alive in Alberta. Ed Benoit (SC-Highwood), an ordained evangelist preacher, asked in the legislature whether the government intends to give equal time in schools to non-evolutionist views in response to "thousands of requests from Albertans." Mr. Hyndman replied "the m/tter has come to my attention . . . but certainly not id the numbers described by the honorable member." The request is under consideration by a curriculum committee in the education depart- ment and the government intends to make a statement about "the use of controversial materials in the school system" during the current sitting, he said. Mr. Benoit said outside the assembly that a move started by a Peace River evangelist, Neil Unruh, supported by the Bible Science Association of America^ is underway to get equal time in school courses for non-evolutionist views. Letters and petitions have been sent to the minister of education requesting that evolution be taught as a theory, rather than a fact, said the Soared MLA. In most Alberta schools evolution is taught in biology class. Creation is taught in some schools in social studies or in comparative religion courses.

The condition, which renders soil unsuitable for agriculture, is caused by high water tables which forces salt to collect on the surface of the land. The salt is toxic to plants and the accumulation on or near the surface results in poor plant growth. Ralph Trimmer, regional plaint industry supervisor for the Alberta .Department of Agriculture in Lethbridge, says the area affected by soil salinity is Increasing yearly. To study the problem closer, a steering committee has been formed with members from the Canada Department of Agriculture and the provincial aigricul-twrc department and department of the environment, municipal agricultural service boards and individual farmers. The steering committee will establish pilot projects throughout five municipal districts and counties to try to develop control methods. District agriculturists will be working closely with agricultural service boards to -select suitable pilot project sites. Mr. Trimmer says the annual crop - summerfallow rotation predominant in Southern Alberta is believed to be responsible for the high water tables.

In addition to break-ins, police also warn that cash has been stolen during store hours. "During the daylight hours, two or three persons often work together perpetrating the theft of cash or other valuable items from the store.

Herald Legislature Bureau ] EDMONTON - Provincial government officials are scheduled to visit Vulcan Monday and Tuesday to meet residents protesting large land holdings by Hutterites and non-Albertans. Meanwhile a delegation from the Southern Alberta community is scheduled to meet Premier Lougheed and some members of his cabinet at 1:30 p.m. Friday at the legislature. A brief to be presented at that time calls on the government to immediately freeze all land sales. An advertisement in this week's edition of the Vulcan newspaper will notify residents that they can make an appointment through' the office of the district agriculturist to discuss land use with provincial officials Monday and Tuesday, said Robert MacDonald, an assistant in the new communal property advisory office in Calgary. The Communal Properties Act, which restricted the size and location of land held by Hutterites, is to be repealed effective March 1. Mr. MacDonald said in a telephone interview that the Hutterites have agreed to discuss notential land purchases with the new communal property advisory committee. He said the views of Vulcan residents will be taken into consideration when the committee advises Hutterites about potential land purchases. However, once the Communal Properties Act is repealed, the government can only advise the religious sect where to locate. Mr. MacDonald said a long range plan of the new advisory committee is to recommend to the provincial government solu tions to the over-all problem of large land holdings. A report by the communal Deadline near for homeowner tax discount Lethbridge homeowners have until the end of the month to submit their 1972 homeowner grant applications. The deadline was extended to Feb. 28 to accommodate new home owners on supplementary tax rolls, senior citizens eligible for renters assistance and homeowners who had not filed their applications for 1972. About 100 applications have been received at city hall and sent on to Edmonton since the deadline was extended. More than 8,000 Lethbridge homeowners have applied for the grants. Youth guilty on break-in charge Charges of breaking and entering against an Okotoks youth were dismissed Tuesday in provincial court, but Barry Gerald Perrault, 18, pleaded guilty to another break and enter charge and was given a 21-month suspended sentence. Perrault pleaded guilty to breaking into an Imperial Oil bulk station Jan. 26 in Warner. However, he pleaded not guilty to charges laid after Ing's Grocery, and College Mercury were broken into, and these charges were dismissed. property committee noted that iii light of the declining rural population and the increasing problems of family farms "the government should consider the whole matter of rural land use, and in particular the potential impact created by large land holdings or large scale agricultural operations." RIGHTS BILL FOR SECT TOO EDMONTON - A proposal to prohibit the sale of produce in the Southern Alberta city of Drumh'eller by the Hutterite religious sect was described by Agriculture Minister Hugh Horner Tuesday night as a direct contravention of the province's Bill of Rights. He was commenting on a notice of motion to this effect introduced at a Monday sitting of the Drumheller council. The motion is to be dealt with at a council meeting March 6. It was introduced after Aldermen expressed concern that Hutterite land agents are assembling large tracts of land for new colonies. Concern about the Hutterite situation lias surfaced in several Alberta communities after the provincial government's announcement that the Communal Properties Act, which restricts land purchases by the sect, will be repealed March L. Alberta's 7,200 Hutterites occupy 579,653 acres of farm land in the province, about 1.2 per cent of the total acreage. Most are in the southern part of the province. Many colonies market some produce such as eggs and chickens door-to-door and often at prices well below the level at which local merchants say they can compete.
