New approach to religion may be indicated by youth' comments By MAKLENE COOKSHAW Herald Staff Writer Does the new g e n it; aticn bring a new religion with' it? Maybe not a new religion, but at least a new approach to it, judging by comments from the 20 students interviewed for this series. The students were contact- ed and chosen by another stu- dent at each school with the request that they have opin- ions on God and religion and be willing to participate in a discussion. Because Catholic Central High School provides re- ligious instruction in the Ca- tholic faith, it was felt it would be interesting to talk with high school-aged stu- dents who also received daily instruction in another large religion. The four Mormon students attended seminary regularly. Members of different laitlis provided a young look at old religions, and others had in- teresting philosophies which seemed almost religions themselves to the students. The discussions with the public school students were more fruitful and interesting than with the groups of the same religion. The young people demonstrated a great interest in other beliefs which seems to die out in older peo- ple. They had an enthusiasm and excitement in trying to understand the mysteries oE both their own and other re- ligious cults. Tills was more prevalent in Winston Churchill and the Lelhuridge Collegiate Insti- tute students than in the other groups. There was a great number of differences between the students from the public schools and those who had re- ceived daily instruction in a single religion. Different con- clusions were expected but the most striking contrast was in the approach to a sub- ject. The first two groups re- quired only the mention of a topic, or a question or two to get started and then quite capably carried the discus- sion, adding subjects they were interested in. The Catholic and Mormon groups became almost a game of questions and an- swers, and the students seem- ed unable to carry anything farther than one or two com- ments. The second group of Calh- olic students brought up one point which they discussed extensively, the question of a need for religion in urban areas as compared to the country. In this and other areas concerning topics wliich did not seem to be those gener- ally discussed in a religious studies class, the students What do today's young people think about reli- gion? Do they believe in a GocI? Do they accept the traditional church views, or seek their own? Herald reporter Marlone C o o k- shaw interviewed a num- b e r of high-schcol-aged students in tethbridge to seek an indication, of the answers to these questions. The five-part series con- cludes today. were much more expressive and interesting. They still had to be encour- aged, but the opinions they of- fered were their own, person- al view's, and not something which had been previously decided. There were several in- stances in the discussion where the second group of Catholic students replied word for word the same an- swer as those in the first group. The groups were interview- ed on two different days, with neither knowing who the members of the other group were, or even that there had been another group. .The second group was in- terviewed because it was sus- pected that (he Crist sliu dents had been chosen by a teacher, and the intention ot the interviews was that young people chose their own repre- sentatives to present their views. The important thing is that the questions to which the same answers were given were not concerning church standards, but the personal feelings of the individual stu- dents. It seems a tragedy that young people, all under IS, should openly adnu't to being "brainwashed by parents and the church" and to being brought up strictly" In a single faith without any re- gret or resentment. The following statements made by the students stand out especially: "I think people should be told by the church only what they can understand." Clair, CCHS. "It's not good if you need proof of the concepts ad- vanced by your religion. Faith is one of the tests oE your belief." Falene, LDS. Statements like these were accepted as normal by the two groups, while statements like the following were thought of as something new, even by those who said them: "You've got to ask ques- tions even if you're not sup- posed to." Sharon, LDS. "I think you should say what you really think." Fred, CCHS. Is it right that young peo- ple should be brought up so willing to accept something completely abstract without question? Or Is it the job of parents, teachers and the church to encourage them in asking questions, forming their own principles, and at the end, to leave them willing, or at least able, to change? These articles are not cri- ticizing any individual reli- gion, or the idea of religion itself. As several students said, "everyone needs a back- ground, something to believe but why isn't the back- ground complete? If students are to be given religious instruction as part of their studies, it is only logical that the instruction contain as many aspects of the subject as possible, as do other instructional courses. This opinion was developed after the discussions, where a strong upbringing in a sin- gle faith which extended into school life was an obvious block to communication. In the public schools, even those who followed a parti- cular religion were able to consider an opinion express- ed by someone which differ- ed from their own. The other groups were quite willing to listen and accept the argu- ment, but were unable to go further. What anyone said did not affect their own feelings in the least. As one of the LCI students said, the best thing about liv- ing in this century is that people's thoughts are always changing and growing. AH students from all groups mentioned that they thought the purpose behind a religion was always the same: "They're all looking for ths same thing." Most students Interviewed expressed a desire to see all people bonded with a single religion formed from a union of all existing ones. If nothing so concrete was mentioned, there was still a basic bond among all people implied. If this feeling is as com- mon among young people as it seems to be, there may be hope for the world yet. Centralized dietary for hospitcd A centralized dietary system, designed to save money, im- prove food services to patients and provide patient lounges in saved space, hegan operation at the Letibridge Municipal Hos- pital today. Tile cost of the project, about is expected to be re- covered over a three-year period by estimated annual savings of LMH administrat o r Andy Andreachuk said. The new system combines food preparation and distribu- tion hi one kitchen. Previously, food was prepared in the kit- chen but taken to three substa- tions on the floors and then dis- tributed. By centralizing the food serv- vices, Mr. Andreachuk said, the dietary staff can be reduced from 51 to 31. The three dietary substations will be converted into patient lounges. Food services can also be improved under centralized supervision, he explained. The cost per patient per meal day will be reduced from to i Dishwashing equipment in the cafeteria will be removed at a later date and the space con- verted to provide additional seats.

Sales 328-4539 Car lei 328-4356 The country club executive and the land sales committee of city council have reached a tentative lease agreement on 270 acres of land around the Country Club golf course. The agreement calls for tho city to lease 250 acres from tha club, at an undisclosed amount, east of the golf course in the coulee area. The land will ha used by the city for open space development, Wayne Quinn, as- sistant to the city manager, said. The Country Club will lease 20 acres of riverbottom land from the city north of the ex- isting nine holes for develop- ment of an additional nine holes for the course. The agreement would last 10 years and bo renewable every 10 years for 99 years, Mr. Quinn said. Before the deal becomes of- ficial, it will go to city council at its next regular meeting June 19. If council approves the agreement, the general membership of the Country Club will vote on it. "Further, if milk and ils products become luxuries fo (Ms group, it can only result i reduced consumption. W h a then is the wisdom of increa. ing prices that will result loss of sales As an alternative to a prjc ncrease, the brief suggests th milk producers try new disti ution techniques, such as elim nation of door-to-door delivery nd larger and different con ainers, as a method of cuttin osts. AI Wiggins, manager of Si renvood Dairies, said the prii ncrease is warranted. "It is known fact that milk is the bcs ood buy now.

Mr. Wiggins said the mi and milk product prices are tl same in Lethbridge as the res of the province. He said, ho milk costs five cents quart niore in Winnipeg, f example.
