Ph. 328-8161 1705 M.M. Drive Ph. 328-7751 Crime series starts The first of a three-part serialization of the Alvin Karpds Story begins this Saturday in The Herald's Weekend Magazine supplement. The articles represent some seven years of various kinds of efforts from the time the editors of Weekend first heard that Karpis was still alive in a U.S. prison. Karpis is one of the few 'in' men still alive of the crime-ridden 1930s-one of the few, for instance, who can tell the true account of FBI director J. Edgar Hoover and Ma (Bloody Mama) Barker legends. Hoover had vowed that Karpis would never be released from jail as long as he (Hoover) was still alive. The editors of Weekend argued that Karpis did not have to be paroled as he was a Canadian citizen who had no criminal record in Canada, and as he had never taken out U.S. citizenship he could be released and deported to Canada. His release was realized two years ago and Karpis moved to Montreal where Weekend assigned writer Bill Trent to the Karpis story. Karpis has vivid recall of the happenings of big time crime in the U.S. in the 1930s. On Saturday, the book, the Alvin Karpis Story (with Bill Trent) will be released in the United States by Putnam-Cow-ard-McCann and also in Canada, Public Enemy No. 1, The Alvin Karpis Story (with Bill Trent) by McClelland and Stewart.

Keelchy, owned by Pete Kish of 1009 7th Ave. S., plows determinedly through the 8.4 inches of snow dumped on Lethbridge in the past two days. The foothills may get scattered snowflurries Sunday but otherwise the snow is over, according to the weatherman. An arctic ridge is keeping the warm air further south, however, and temperatures Sunday will be in the 15 to 20 degree range. Overnight lows will be around 10 to 15 below.

Both pleaded not guilty. They were remanded until March 3 for trial. By JIM WILSON Herald Education Writer Solutions to the increasingly rapid deterioration of the earth's environment may have to be almost as drastic as the problems creating the deterioration, says University of Calgary ecologist Dr. Paul Anderson. Dr. Anderson, speaking as "the prophet of doom" at an ecology teach-in Friday in the Southwestern Alberta Teachers' Association annual convention, told teachers that the earth's resources are "ecological capital," similar to the financial capital of a business. If the business1 spends its money faster than it replaces it, the business goes bankrupt; if the earth's ecological capital is used up faster than it can be renewed by nature, then life becomes impossible because the earth becomes' bankrupt of the resources required for living. And the point of no return-where the debt is too great to be reoaid - may have been passed. Economists who say resources are sufficient for all types of use, and who deny the seriousness of the earth's cur rent situation are basing their statements on false assumptions, Dr. Anderson said. He said if there are not enough resources, there can be no "trade-off" compromise between use of resources for ma terialistic living and the resulting dirtying of the environment and loss of still-more resource canital. "Consumption is now doubling every 10 years, and should double every five if the needs of the world's underprivileged majorities are to be met, yet at present rates of use, natural gas reserves are adequate for perhaps 15 years, and oil for 35 or 40," Dr. Anderson said. As more and more human beings are born they use up more and more space on the earth for living and for resource support; the result is loss of other animal and plant life, and gradual extinction of many species. Many economic forecasts and ideas are short - sighted, Dr. Anderson said. "Modern agriculture, in the economist's books, is mar-velously efficient. In the ecolb-gist's books' it is wondrously and dangerously inefficient." The green plants on a square yard of Alberta prairie make available to bugs and animals 2,000 to 3,000 calories worth of sunshine energy per year. Modern agriculture, moving into the same square yard, expends 26,000 calories of fuel energy to produce the same 2,000 to 3,000 calories without the sim, for human beings. "An expenditure of 10 calories of capital for every calorie received is clearly a losing proposition," Dr. Anderson said.

At today's Canadian standard of living the world can comfortably support only one billion people; by 1980 there will be at least 4.5 billion. The solution could be massive death, or controlled population increase. But even if each family was allowed only two children, the population would approach seven billion within 100 years. The solution, Dr. Anderson said, would be for every three or four families to share one child. The market system under which today's economists de-v e 1 o p resource utilization theories do not deal with real people, Dr. Anderson suggested. The result is that food is wasted or stored in one country and people die of starvation in another, because people who are poor or starving do not create a market - they have no way to finance their demands. For example, Peru has an extensive fishing industry and a starving population. Fish, rich in protein, would solve many of the country's problems. However, the poor cannot demand the fish, so 100 per cent of it goes to the United States as the base for chicken food, since Americans have the dollars to make their demands felt. The economic market does not adjust so that people, instead of chickens, get the fish. And at the root of the problem, Dr. Anderson said, is an education system which does not recognize this sort of need. Teachers must become better-'iformed of the earth's ecology, he said, and pass the information on to their students. Solution would cost billions If Canadians will accept the need for a "trade-off" compromise between utilization of natural resources and the cost of pollution control and ecological renewal, no one need fear the end of the world. If such a trade-off is accomplished, and minimum standards of environmental quality are adopted federally, "then the per capita income of Canadians will likely increase along with an improved environment," says Del Ogden, a professor of economics at the University of Calgary. Mr. Ogden, speaking at an ecology teach-in highlighting the second day of the South-west Alberta Teachers' Association annual convention, told 1,300 teachers the price tag of such a system would be high - "many billions of dollars." He said the market system on which Canadian economy is based works only according to the aspirations of individuals, without considering public costs of its activities. A car manufacturer produces a product he hopes a consumer will want to buy; the manufacturer and consumer meet and haggle in the market place to arrive at a price which the consumer can afford and which repays the manufacturer and gives him sufficient profit. The price must also cover his "opportunity costs" - what he could make in profit if he changed to another business. The manufacturer does not consider third-party "spill' over" costs - the "extemali ties" such as pollution and general deterioration of the environment. The public, however, must consider all costs. Since the manufacturer produces goods and services because there is a demand for them, he said, there is a need for establishment of priorities for use of unreplaceable resources. Such a list would take into account both the public desire for a better material life and the need, according to public desire, for environmental control. Mr. Ogden compared the necessary priorities scale with the private operation of a car: the car is a convenience but also pollutes. How much the owner uses his car depends on how concerned he is about polluting, compared to how much he needs his car. The federal government must establish minimum standards of environmental quality, Mr. Ogden said, which allow flexibility to consider local circumstances. A system of user charges, taxing industrial use of the public environment could be set according to the federal standards, and a federal envir onmental review board could be established, Mr. Ogden suggested. The board would hear applications for environmental alterations, such as oil pipelines, EXTRA WEAR FOR EVERY PAIR MIKE HANZEL 317 7th STREET SOUTH dams, strip mining and industrial plants, and judge whether or not the need for and benefits of the alterations justified the damage to the environment resulting. The resource uses could be started only with the permission of the board, after it had assessed the "tradeoff" between social need and social costs.
