National gun rules sought By RIC SWIHAKT Herald Staff Writer A resolution which would have sought a mandatory user's permit for anyone handling a firearm was returned by delegates to the executive of the Alberta Fish and Game Association Saturday. Following the passage of an amendment to the resolution which appointed the legal committee of the association to draft a suitable regulation with provincial authorities, the delegates decided to turn the matter over to the executive. The aimended resolution vail now go before the national group, the Canadian Wildlife Federation, at its annual meeting in Saskatoon in April. Here it is hoped a national firearms regulation will be drawn up. Several speakers at the Alberta Fish and Game Association annual meeting told delegates that without action on the behalf of sport hunters and shooters, federal gun regulations would be forced upon them. Elmer Kure of Innisfail, one of the originators of the resolution, said it is designed to make the individual responsible for his actions. He said the firearm user's permit as suggested would apply to the person and not the firearm. "This is definitely not gun registration as we k n o w it in the United States," he said. "We hope at that meeting we will be able to develop a satisfactory scheme for firearm use." The association also passed a resolution to the executive which called for negotiations with treaty Indians for the purchase of their hunting and fishing rights. Tom O'Keefe, outgoing president of the association, said the Alberta Fish and Game Association was simply asking the federal government to enter discussions with the treaty Indians to set up a more effective wildlife management system. The resolution stated that ac- ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC Schwartz Bldg. 222 5th St. S. Phone 328-4095 AIR CONDITION NOW with the ROUND ONE by ALCON REFRIGERATION LTD.

This would allow proper game management. Tlie matter will go from the executive of the association to ths federal government. Delegates urge park preservation A resolution urging curtailment of further townsite development in Canada's national parks has been written into the policy books of the Alberta Fish and Game Association. Following heated debate in Lethbridge Saturday, delegates to the group's 44th annual meeting passed a national parks policy aimed at preserving parks for future generations of Canadians. A clause stating that no meeting of the association be held in a national park was deleted when it was decided the Jasper Fish and Game Association would have to drop out of the provincial organization if it was adopted. Other points mentioned' in the policy include:  In addition to curtailing further townsite development, no further road development should be permitted without full studies on all possible ecological effects.  Accommodation, such as hotels and motels, should be developed outside park areas. Additional a c c o m m o dation within the park boundary should be limited to camping aioas such as hikers Alpine Huts, shelters and camp grounds. Structures which have little relationship to park needs should be located outside the park boundary.  To develop an awareness of nature and tine value of the National Parks, an improvement must be made in the present system of nature interpretation through guided tours, nature walks and displays. Provision should be made in parks appropriations for a large and highly qualified staff to encourage the full use and appreciation of the parks.  Efforts should be made to let natural events within the parks determine the changes which take place. The introduction of exotic species of fish done in the past is a mistake that should not be permitted to occur again The association then removed rainbow trout and Eastern brook trout from the list of exotic fish.

The public hearings, sponsored by the Environmental Conservation Authority, will help to decide crown land use planning for the next few decades, said Mr. Careless. The hearings are of vital importance to the people of Alberta and Canada because they allow the people to express their views on the land use question. The affected area, from the U.S. border north to Grande Prairie and from the B.C. border east to the foothills, contains resources such as oil and coal, said Mr. Careless. There are groups which would like to use the area for these resources. Through the public hearings, people will be able to let the government know they would like the area used for recra-tion and personal enjoyment. SHORT STOP AUTO LTD.

Sportsmen to pay for new program An additional dollar being added to hunting and fishing licences in Alberta this year will become part of general provincial revenues and will be diverted to development of wildlife habitat areas. The announcement was made Saturday by Allan Warrack, land and forests minister, in Lethbridge. Dr. Warrack, who outlined "A Buck for Wildlife" program in the Legislature Friday, said demonstration areas will be established to show the public the type of areas required for wildlife habitats. He told the 44th annual convention of the Alberta Fish and Game Association that the program will acquire and maintain critical wintering areas vital to wildlife. The minister also said efforts will be made to create more fishing areas near large urban centres. Dr. Warrack said the program will help ensure that the fish and wildlife resources in Alberta will be safe guarded. "I am convinced and committed to the importance of this program and it will receive my undivided attention," he said. Bob Scammell of Red Deer, incoming president of the provincial fish and game association, said he was so enthused about the program it would be hard to calculate right now the good that can come from it. He said every thinking sportsman has to welcome the program. Nobody likes to pay more for a licence but they will realize that through the fund they are actually buying some of the country back for the citizens. Dr. Warrack said the money in the program will be spent using a special fish and wildlife plan developed by the fish and wildlife division of the department of lands and forests. Through these types of plans and programs, the people of Alberta will be able to meet the challenge of living with themselves, he said. And that challenge should be to try to balance the amount of resource development which will give the public what it wants with the type of life and environment it wants. He said that challenge includes the conservation of resources for future generations. He said many groups in Alberta are close in their thinking about the public resources and how to use them. The provincial government now has increased the penalties for violations of the Alberta Wildlife Act. He said in a effort to enforce the rules for better management of wildlife, the penalties have been increased 250 to 300 per cent.

As a result, physicians are chronically overworked, and many times unavailable. Hospital emergency rooms are being overrun with non-emergency cases. And in some areas there are no doctors at all.

He said the intensification of farmer-hunter problems and increased problems in wildlife enforcement were examined. With such problems in mind, Dr. Warrack said he expects to have an expanded budget approved March 2 which will allow his department to increase the number of enforce- ment officers working for the division. Responding to a question about planting grass above the miles of pipeline in Northern Alberta, Dr. Warrack said an announcement. could be expected soon introducing a new Land Surface Conservation Act. He said the new act, operated through the department of the environment, will carry Al-bertans from a remedial to preventive policy op land conservation. *� Fish, game chief to promote sport The preservation of the sport of hunting through the promotion of hunter training and increased membership in the Alberta Fish and Game Association is the chief aim of the association's incoming president, Bob Scammell of Red Deer. He called for a full-time association employee whose sole responsibility will be to assist the local fish and game clubs in keeping track of base memberships, renewing them and getting new members. He said the fish and game association should start to promote the sport of hunting and to engage in programs of such importance to the sportsmen of Alberta they will want to join the group. He said there are other groups which can look after such things as mercury levels and pollution. "The Alberta sportsman now begs for our leadership in the challenge of preserving the sport hunter from extinction." There are great numbers of people dedicated to the eradic-tion of hunting as a sport on erroneous factual grounds and questionable, if sincere, moral grounds, he said. He said hunters are losing ground in the battle because the number of hunters as a percentage of the population has been steadily declining. He said one aspect of the anti-hunting movement is valid. "In the past year, I have spent considerable time hunting in some of the real problem areas of the province and I have had reluctantly to conclude that the major reason for bad landowner-hunter rela- CLIFF BLACK, Certified Dental Mechanic BLACK DENTAL LAW MEDICAL DENTAL BLDG. Lower Level PHONE 327-2822 tions is that 90 per cent of all hunters never ever ask permission (to hunt)," he said. Mr. Scammell said hunter training is the place to start. "We must embark tomorrow developing our own hunter training course, emphasizing game laws, landowner rights, firearms safety and hunting ethics, and produce a quality manual that is available to anyone at a nominal cost, if not free," he said. "This is only part of it. We need more and more courteous hunters in the field if hunting is to survive." He suggested local fish and game clubs will have to start "take a boy fishing" programs, develop courses on deer hunting for beginners, or trout fishing for senior citizens. "We have to build a better hunter from scratch and put thousands of his like in the field," he said. 1847 ROGERS BROS. SILVER PLATE REVIVAL SALE Fill-in.
