The Alberta Committee for True Education attempted Thursday at the Lethbridge Civic Centre to air the ques- tion in a debate between Duane T. Gish of San Diego, Calif., and Job Kuijt, University of Lethbridge biology professor. "A public meeting is emphatically not the said Dr. Kuijt. "This particular debate belongs in the professional journals, not in meetings such as this. To have a pro-and-con debate of an issue of this complexity, in a public arena, smacks too much of a politician's life." The question of evolution is as fully as complex as discussions of relativity, food producing mechanisms in plants and the differentiation in nerve cells, Dr. Kuijt said. "Why is it some feel the origin and evolution of life can be meaningfully discussed before an audience of non- professionals7" Dr. Kuijt asked. Dr. Gish replied saying Dr. Kuijt was making an appeal to authority. "Before the meeting, Dr. Kuijt asked no testimonies of a religious nature be Dr. Gish told the audience of more than 200 persons. "Yet, instead of answering scientific questions he has given a statement of his own position. I believe in a God great and powerful enough to create life and the Dr. Gish said. Dr. Kuijt concluded the exchange, stressing he could see no point in the confrontation. "I ask you what has been gained by this debate before laymen? No one goes away with any change of Dr. Kuijt said. Close to a third of the audience were quickly on their feet heading for the exit door when CFTE spokesman, Rev. Neil Unruh of Hythe, Alta., made a pitch for Games left Saskatoon with community spirit There are some tangible results left over after the Canada Winter Games but the most important result is the community spirit developed during the games. "We had over volunteers working together for a community endeavor in a way I've never seen says Sen. Sid Buckwold, who was mayor of Saskatoon when the 1971 games were held there. It's hard to get a community the size of Saskatoon involved in something like the Games but it happened and the city is better for it, Sen Buckwold said. Lethbridge will have its sportsplex after the games are over just like Saskatoon has a foot ski bill that had to be built for the games' skiing events. But the most important benefit of the Games was the community spirit that was developed, Senator Buckwold said. "They are still talking about the Games in Saskatoon." Sen. Buckwold was named the 1969 Salesman of the Year for Saskatchewan for his efforts in securing the games for Saskatoon. In 1971 he was named Citizen of the Year for the City of Saskatoon.

School systems called bureaucratic monsters The school system of today has "grown into a bureaucratic the president of the Alberta School Trustees Association warned Thursday. Speaking to the annual convention of the South Western Alberta Teachers Association, Harald INSURANCE HOME-IUSMESS FARM AUTO AND LIFE MoiMy S SEEUSSOON1 7M M AM. S. Gunderson. of Calgary, said the school systems are too mechanical and neglectful of people as human beings because they go too much by the rule book. "I honestly feel that a lot of people, including parents, students classroom teachers and even some 'School board members and I doubt some trustees even know it's happening are being pushed around by well meaning administrators who live in a world all their own." Mr. Gunderson suggested FOX DENTURE CLINIC ESL1922 PHONE 327-4SC5 E. S. P. FOX, C.O.M. fOXLHMMGEOBrTALUI MCOtCAL DENTAL OUM. that the real power in Alberta's schools "is in the hands of middle-management officials who strongly influence the allocation of monies and decide on promotions of teachers and principals." He was referring to assistant superintendents, directors and secondary school principals. Mr. Gunderson claims these officials don't have to account for their actions to elected trustees who are almost completely dependent on the recommendations they make. He charged that most middle-management officials just "serve the status quo" and do their best to keep teachers content and undisturbed. "In this way, their power base remains intact" USB GJKB PRE-EMERGENCE SPRAY EQUIPMENT 'i ydu IdMl for Discs, Harrows, Ineorporators, Tractor Mounting PLANTER ATTACHMENT KIT No PK-2J 2 TOW band spray with two Gold Cap" nozzles with No SEF tips 874HI "To allow subdivision on prime land because other 80 acre parcels take land out of production doesn't make it right." And, he said, a large plot can always be returned to agriculture whereas a three acre parcel is almost impossible to bring back into fanning. Try and consolidate three dozen three acre parcels, he challenged. The department of agriculture and the St. Mary River Irrigation District have both expressed "strong opposition" to the Ranchland Recreation project, which would be built on irrigated land. "The main point here that should be remembered is the prime soil characteristics of the land in Mr. Simons stressed. Mr. Fleming said he was surprised to hear the inflexibility of the commission's position when, he noted, the county's zoning policy has been amended eight times and on five of those occasions, a rural agricultural zone has been changed to allow country residences. He asked the council to amend the policy again, just to give Mr. Jarvie a chance to proceed to the next step with his project. The developer would even be willing to sign an agreement allowing the county to change the zoning back if approval from other agencies and departments was not forthcoming, he said. Council also heard a submission from Ken Blom, Barons Eureka health inspector, opposing the Jarvie plan on the grounds that there could be potential conflict between purchasers of property in the development and feedlot operators adjacent to Ranchland Recreation. It could develop into another situation similar to the City Packers conflict where the packing plant, established long before residences sprung up around it, is being forced to relocate because of complaints about odor. In addition, Mr. Blom said, it will restrict feedlot expansion in the area because of present legislation prohibiting new livestock confinement operations within half a mile of country residences. Since Mr. Jarvie first proposed the subdivision last fall, county councillors have been vocal in their opposition or support. But at Thursday's meeting, they were relatively quiet, preferring to leave the-debate to the experts. A decision on the zoning amendment was postponed to a special meeting March 1, but some councillors expect that even if Mr. Jarvie is turned down again, he'll be back. Holstein association plans meeting at Picture Butte An organizational meeting of the local branch of the Alberta Holstein Association will be held in Lee's Palace in Picture Butte Tuesday at 8 p.m. A spearhead committee elected by local Holstein owners and the Holstein Association of Canada have indicated the local branch should be organized as soon as possible. At the organizational meeting, Ed Bristow, regional dairy specialist in Calgary for the Alberta department of agriculture, will discuss the national identification program for dairy cattle. The club is open to owners of both grade and registered Holstein cattle. AKROYD'S PLUMBING. HEATING AND GASFITTING Special tor wwiof cHteWt Maw Installations 3M-Z106 CUFF mac.
