Even the tight-knit religious groups have youthful protestantism By MAIUENE COOKSHAW Herald Slaff Wrilcr "If you need proof of the concepts ad- v a n c e d by your religion it's not good. You have to have faith, it's one of the tests of your belief. "Some things you just have to going to the moon. We don't know for sure men landed there, we didn't see it per- sonally, we just accept it." This statement was made by Falene, one of the four high school-aged Mormon stu- dents interviewed. All regular- ly attend a 7 a.m. seminary before classes each morning. Seminary is an institution of the Church of Jesus Clirist of Latter-day Saints where students participate in religious instruction and dis- cussion. Sharon disagreed with Fal- ene's statement. "You've got to ask questions, even if you're not supposed to." Falene felt that religion, al- though not everything in life, had a part in everything. "Ev- eryone needs a basic thing to follow and believe in. I think all religions believe pretty well the same thing at least their basic principles are the same.'' "I don't think our religion is better than any said Paula. "Other people are good because they live what they be'leve in. "I don't tlu'nk you should change the basic rules of a church though. Like some churches used to say it was wrong to go to the show. But the young people went anyway, so they eventually changed the rules. "Church principles give you something to strive for. Reli- gion is to help you become a better person. "You know, it's fimny, when I'm discussing religion with Mormons, I take the non- Mormon side, and when I'm talking to non Mormons, I take the Mormon side. I really don't know why, may- be it's just for the sake of argument." About the Mormon religion itself, Shauna commented, "I think it makes us very close people. But it does it What do today's young people think about reli- gion? Do they believe in a God? Do they accept the traditional church views, or seek their own? Herald reporter Marlene C. o o k- shaw interviewed a num- b e r of high-school-aged students in Lelhfaridge lo seek an indication of the answers to these questions. The five-part series con- tinues through Friday. without destroying our indivi- duality." "The church says we are sent here to get back in the presence of our heavenly father, and we must use this life to prove we are worthy. That sounds okay, but some- how I can't see living for ever and ever it seems like it's something someone said just to comfort said Paula. "Another thing I think it's kind of hard to find open- minded Mormons, most of them are pretty set in their ways." "There are three main de- grees of glory that can be reached, depending on how close you come to your po- tential on said Falene. "It's not supposed to be easy. "I think the church is good because the people get to take part. The bishop is there, but just to organize. The people may know as much or more than the bishop. "Other religions aren't wrong. We feel that they have the truth too, but we have more. There are extra prin- ciples in our religion." "The church says that only parts of other religions are wrong, not the whole reli- added Shauna. "I don't think I am so deeply set in my ways that I couldn't change my religion if I wanted to, or if someone convinced me that their's was better. But they'd have to do a lot of convincing." Falene said Mormonism "gives you a peace of mind in having the same beliefs as those around you. You feel good, close to God. Mormon- ism is so logical." Paula disagreed. "I don't think Mormonism is logical at all, it's like a big story. "I'm not even sure there is a God sometimes. But when I listen to other kids talk, and they're so uncertain, their un- certainty seems to make my belief stronger somehow. "We're supposed to go lo church authorities if we need help with any she added. "I think kids usually talk to their friends first though, and if their friends can't help then they'll talk to Ihe authorities. "I've been to other churches, but I don't think f would she said. "There's almost always a reverent atmosphere, but that's all there is for me. I can't find fulfillment there." "I relate to God through said Falene.' How did she think of him? "God is supreme, he can do she said. Shauna agreed. "He Is an actual being. He's perfect, all-powerful, supreme." Sharon disagreed. "You'ra thinking of God like the pic- tures you see in a she said. "It's just your im- agination." "I'd be terribly confused i? there was no said Fal- ene. In answer to another ques- tion, she said, "The church and God how can you sep- arate it? We were all brought up in the church, maybe that's why feel it so strongly."

Sugar beet growers are facing a shortage of several hundred aborers for hoeing operations n the region's acres of iugar beet fields.

Coupled with this is the short- age of migrant workers. This has been blamed on gov- ernment job training and make work programs, which are occupying people normal- ly looking for work at this time. Others who would work in the beet fields, have received suffi- cient skills to work at other jobs. College board is stymied by lack of new members The Lethbridge Community College board of governors is acing an unusual problem he board may be forced into nactivity for most of the sum- mer because provincial govern- ment has failed to make new appointments. The terms of board chair- nan Jerome Bobbins and ward members Ben Brooks and Jean Boon expire June 30. And, the provincial government still hasn't decided on a re- placement for Jim Anderson who resigned last fall. Mr. Bobbins is eligible for a second three-year term but there has been no word from Edmonton on whether he will be reiappointed. However, Mr. Brooks and Miss Boon cannot sit for another term. Dr. C. D. Stewart, LCC pres- ident, said he is displeased with Ihe government's inactivity on the situation. "If we get new people ap- pointed to the board in July, it's difficult for them to change their plans for the summer. "Someone who has planned to take his family on vacation isn't going to change his plans ust to attend a board meet- Dr. Stewart said he is partic- distributed that there has iteen no replacement for Air, "He resigned about eight nonths ago and we still don't mow when he is going to be re- said Dr. Stewart. If new appointments are not announced soon, the board may e faced with the problem of iot being able to meet because t won't have enough members o make up a quorum. Stop the simmer!

Many would-be beet workers are also engaged in forest fire fighting duties in northern Al- berta to save their home envir- onment. The labor shortage Is not completely unexpected, as the number of transient workers las been steadily declining for :he past few years, a Leth- Dridge Canada Manpower spokesman said. The CMC is now involved In a high school student recruit- ment program to ease tha plight of tiie beet farmer. Farmer attitudes towards tha student workers are undergoing a change, he said. Farmers have found students capable workers, once they are shown what to do. The Alberta Sugar Beet Grow- ers Association, while not de- nying an urgent need for more help, warns that media overcon- cern about the problem will result in another problem. The association says, quoting experience, that once workers recognize the labor shortage is acute they "move from field to field looking for better condi- tions." This results In a worker spending more time moving than working, thereby, com- pounding the existing shortage.
