Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 13, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE tETHDRIDGE HERALD Thundoy, July 13, 1971 South irrigation to he thesis topic Southern Alberta's Irrigation Industry has been chosen as a PhD thesis subject by a former University of Lcthbridge pro- fessor. Johan Schuyff, now a mem- ber of thu [anilly of economics at Simon Fraser University, said one can't avoid the effects ot irrigation, and that is the reason for his choice. He said among economists, the effects of irrigation are quite controversial. The major- ity believes the value of irriga- tion should be measured by the net increase in agricultural production. Mr. Schuyff, however, claims that irrigation has a much broader impact on the region since if induces processing in- dustries to establish in if. "As a result, more of the value of flic agricultural pro- cluclion remains in the Irriga- tion he said. He started his research short- ly after coming to iiethbridgc in With the help of people in government offices, local in- dustries and the public library, he collected material about the history and present structure of southern Alberta economy. His research has pointed to a definite link between the management of land and water resources and the economic, social and cultural development of the region. He says the St. Mary River Irrigation project has not only maintained a viable irrigated agricullure in the region but has also laid the foundations for much of the industrial de- velopment and general prosper- ity of the area. "The location of several of Letbbridge's major industries can only be explained by the successful operation of highly- experienced farmers, which guarantees the processors a continuous, competitive supply of raw materials." he said. "The benefits made possible by irrigation projects not only accrue to the farmers but also to processors, industrial em- ployees, local businessmen and local governments." He says the reason for his study of the situation is to ex- plain how the industries relate in the specific environment of southern Alberta. It will enable business and public agencies to make the best possible use of the region's potential in the in- terest of those living there. He suggests that a heavy con- centration on the agricultural- food processing sector also has its dark sides. "A major drawback appears to be that these industries do not easily Induce other indus- tries to establish in the region because they rely so heavily on local raw he said. "The spur to the local econo- my may peter out. "Lethbridge seems to that danger by actively rooting other industries, with a fair success." avoid pro- and New shows on Whoop-Up grandstand The Whoop-Up Days grand- stand show takes on a new look Ihis year ns director Fred Prit- chard has lined up a country and show and an eve- ning of gospel singing.

But it does have a group of nine people who deal with problems per- taining to the faith, and is the organizing body of the religion. This group, called the spiritual assembly, in Lethbridge is made up of (left lo Roberla Esplin, Belly Irlam, Jessica Tichenor, Bruce Fraser, Doris Dixon, Anna Ganger, Jeon Perry and Harold Tichenor.

The spiritual assembly is the governing body of Baha'i World Faith, since there is no clergy. "We believe that Christ's spirit returned in the person of added Anna Ganger. The term, "Christ's spirit" Is used, said Mrs. Tichenor, be- cause Canada is basically a Christian area, and because Baha'is also think of Christ as one of the more Important man- ifestations- Harold Tichenor said Baha'is believe that in another years or so, another manifesta- tion from God will come to earth. Baha'u'llali, first leader of the Baha'i World Faith, started his teachings in the Near East in the 1860s. During the first 50 years, the teachings spread through the East. Since then, they have spread throughout the world. Some of the teachings and principles of the Baha'i faith are that there is only one God, that all men are of equal im- portance in God's eyes, that religion ought to be the cause of love and affection, that re- ligion and science are unified, and that each person should have an equal opportunity to have the means of existence. These are just general prin- ciples, said Mr. Tichenor. He said there is no "Catechism" dogma in the Baha'i religion. There are a number of laws in the Baha'i Faith. The Baha'i Marriage law demands that both bride and groom have par- ental consent for the marriage, as marriage is seen as a com- ing together of two families as well as two individuals. The actual ceremony consists of the couple marrying themselves be- fore several witnesses. WHOOP-UP DAYS BIG .SAVINGS ON FAMOUS QUALITY GLIDDEN PAINTS EXTERIOR VALUES!

How do people go about be- coming Baha'is? If a person wants to become a member of the religion, he studies the religion with some- one who is already a Baha'i, or through private study on his own. "When he is ready to join, he signs a declaration card to become enrolled, also signed by the person he studied with, or by himself if he studied from books. The card is sent to the nearest spiritual assembly, and from there is sent on to the national spiritual assembly, which in Canada is in Toronto. A new Baha'i community starts when two or more per- sons wish to form one. Until there are nine persons joined together in the Baha'i faith, the community Is known only as a group. If there are nine members, a spiritual assembly is formed of the nine. If there are more than nine persons, a spiritual assembly is formed by voting, after medi- tation and prayer, to give each member a chance to decide which persons he thinks are best suited to serve on the as- sembly. Each country also has a na- tional spiritual assembly. Dele- gates are sent from each Baha'L electoral district. Delegates vote among themselves to elect the nine members of the na- tional assembly. Each year an election Is held among the national assem- blies to elect the nine members who will serve on the universal spiritual assembly, located in Haifa, Israel. The Baha'i calendar is made up of 19 months with 19 days each. At the start of each month there is a [east. The most important feast Is the Naw Ruz, which is the new year of the Baha'i calendar. Between the end of the old and the beginning of the new year, there are four or five extra days, called intercallery days. This is at the end of February, and during this time there are many celebrations. Bight after this period, there is a Baha'i month of fasting, during wlu'ch no food or drink is consumed between sunrise and sunset. The first Baha'i to come to Lethbridge was Mary Bur- roughs from Edmonton in 1954. A group then formed in 1958. Today in the city there are 13 adults of the faith in ths city and 21 members under the age of 21. Student job market Tire Lethbridge Hire-a-Stu-; dent office requires a chamber- maid, cabaret waitress, full- time secretary, camp counsel- lor, a female janitor, an expe- rienced cashier, a short-ordr cook, a part-time front-end a tendant and an escort car driver over 23. The office is located at 323 7th St. S. or telephone 328-8164. MFC okays office City permission has been given to Gerry Peters to run an office for Gerry and Casey Drywall, a plastering company, from his home at 411 7th Ave. S. The approval is effective sub- ject to a 14 day period in which neighbors have an opportunity to object. The Municipal Plan- ning Commission also required that there be no storage of materials outside the building and the permission be on a year lo year basis. Operation of a commercial venture from n private d'.velling requires a city home occupa- tion permit. The developer of a proposed four-suite apartment al 33rd St. S. may be stsllcd until he can convince the MFC he can provide adequate parking al. Ihe rear of the site. City engineer Randy Holfeld told a meeting of the commis- sion it is unlikely a lane will Iw built behind the location in the near future. Commission chsirman Chick Chichesfer also noted the area is in an unfavorable location for residential living because of ils close proximily to CP Rail tracks and an industrial area, which includes stnck yards. The commission asked devel- oper Fred Jorgenser. to bring more detailed information about building specifications and proposed parking In a fu- ture commission meeting.
