Reaching out across the sea What began as a simple letter of sympathy developed into an active correspondence and later a sisterly adoption. The Lethbridge Women's Institute started the relationship with a similar institute in Ireland, express- ing their sympathy for those members who lived so close to the religious strife in that country. A pleasant reply from the Irish women was soon received and the affair continued. Since then, the organisations have adopted each other, and are now sisters across the sea. Shown in the centre are Dorothy Ferguson, left, recently moved to Lethbridge from Ire- land; and Wl president Dorothy Anderson. In the background are the members of the local chapter. Mankind must change to save environment TORONTO (CP) Mankind must change somehow if the en- vironment is to be saved, but no one agreed on just how during a panel discussion here on the opening day of the 80th an- nual meeting of the National Council of Women. Senator Allister Grosart of Toronto was the only optimist, saying he believes technology can do much to cure environ- mental ailments. He said he be- lieves we have 75 to 100 years for it to do the job. Senator Grosart said every- one's living standard can and must improve and that slowing industrial and economic growth, as some environmentalists ad- vocate, would prevent that im- provement. David Estrin of Toronto said he disagreed fundamentally. "Growth is incompatible with KEEP FATHER HANDSOME SHOP MEN'S WEAR LTD. "THE STORE FOR LADIES WHO SHOP FOR MEN" 314 7th STREET S. PHONE 327-2232 a clean and healthy environ- ment." Mr. Estrin is general counsel for the Canadian-Environmental Law Association, formed to work with people in personal and general situations to use the law to protect the environ- ment. Mr. Estrin said the To- ronto office ndw processes about 40 complaints a week, and that there are branches elsewhere. MUST CHANGE LAWS He said laws must be changed and strengthen so that citizens can force government and industry to scrutinize their plans in the light of the greatest environmental good for all. He said pollution fines are meaningless because the gov- ernment is afraid to use them. "Government should be pro- viding leadership" to industry, but they're not in a position to do it. Campaign funds come from industry. "Both government and in- dustry have failed to make rea- listic cost benefit analyses of what they're doing. "We have assigned a zero price to air and watpr Anthony Westell of the To- ronto Star Ottawa bureau said people must think in terms other than growth. "What do we want growth for? We don't make the poor feel less poor by producing more goods. What we really need is not more wealth, but a better distribution of the wealth we now have." He said we should redefine the nature of work, that many Local Initiatives Program and Opportunity for Youth projects are more useful than hours spent 'producing unnecessary goods in factories. THE BETTER HALF By Barnes "When will you finish the medical part of your witch doctor He said we could develop medical and scientific skills and sell those, sell a renewable re- I source such as water and con- I serve the unrenewable such as gas and coal. "We could protect our coun- I tryside against development. Our greatest asset could turn out to be a relative under- development. We could become suppliers of space and energy. "Before we continue to lay pipelines, build factories, pave more roads, we should consider the alternatives." Christian De Laet of Montreal also urged the delegates to con- sider why. Why breed seven million people? "Unless there is enough envi- ronmental quality to go around, may lose our humaness.'

AND MOTOR MOWER 913 3rd Ave. S., Lethbridgo 817 3rd S., Ltthbridge More than 400 delegates from the North-West Territories and every corner of the Province of Alberta converged on the Edmonton campus of the Uni- versity of Alberta this month for the 49th annual Alberta conference of the United Church of Canada. Representatives from the Lethbridge area included Rev. Ken Jordan of First United, chairman cf the South Alberta Presbytery; Mrs. Clara Thomp- son, chairman of the South Al- berta Presbyterial UCW; Rev. Blake Anderson, Mrs. Mar- garet Prato and Mrs. L. J. McCracken, all of McKillop United; William Harms and Miss Chimaki Kamakura both of South Alberta Japanese Unit- ed: E. C. Miller and R. C. Tennant of Southminster Unit- ed; Rev. Albert Baldeo and Mrs. Ivan Meyers of Coaldale Chin- ook Co-operative Parish; and William Calderwood of the Lethbridge Chinook co-opera- tive. The agenda covered a com- bination of social and theolo- gical discussions. Theme speaker, Dr. Cliff Elliott of Toronto, suggested on the one hand that "we haven't really taken a stand on anyting that we have lost something of our cutting but on the other hand "we are experiencing a great weariness with the gospel of achievement." of r u n n i n g the he suggested the real challenge and the real needs are "to be faithful in proclaim- ing the gospel by reaching out in love to the hungry, hurting people around us." The new president of the Al- berta conference is Rev. Au- brey Edworthy of Edmonton. President elect is Rev. Nel- son Mercer of Calgary. Delegates to the conference were told that the United Church of Canada again faces a major ministerial shortage and that the number of candi- dates enrolled in theological colleges across Canada is in- sufficient to keep pace with the number of vacancies caus- ed by retirement, death and resignation. Congregat ions were urged to give priority to this matter. Not in opposition to women's liberation, but rather, recogniz- ing the need for the liberation of all mankind, conference re- ceived a resolution recom- mending the establishment of a committee to study the whole question of the liberation of all people in society. On the closing day of the con- ference, worship was con- ducted by the Anglican Bishop of Edmonton, The Rt. Rev. Gerald fiurch. This was follow- ed by an address by the Mod- erator of the United Church of Canada, Rt. Rev. Dr. Bruce McLeod.

Just Jude By JUDE TURIC TN THE middle of enjoy- ing the rich icing on my freshly toasted butter- horn, the friend next door calmly informed me that the morsel was fattening. She continued, saying that delicious frills like butter- horns were not necessary and I should be more concerned about how I would look in a skimpy bathing suit this sum- mer. She also said the way to a beautiful body was simple if only I had the courage to stick to a goodie-free diet for a month. Then she volunteered her services as a diet watchdog, and even suggested we try it out together. Meanwhile, I had gobbled up my pastry and having sat- isfied my appetite, decided I could afford to be generous with my promises. Little did I realize that my dear friend meant every word, and from that day forward take note of each slurp of ice cream and every bite of steaming pizza. She started on our campaign the next day at coffee break, calmly ordering black cofeee for both of us, without so much as a glance in my di- rection. At lunch we feasted on sal- mon salad, lettuce leaves and a boiled egg. During supper, we were al- lowed an unbuttered green vegetable, a skinny slice of roast beef and a slab of dry toast. The highlight of the eve- ning was a soda cracker with a lonely piece of cheese. For the remainder of the week, she stayed by my side, casting sideways glances on the occasions when I let my conscience go and demanded equal time with a cream puff. When her own will power began to waiver she gave her- self a booster by carrying on a monologue expounding the glories of being slim. Other times, she would psych herself up to believing that a strawberry pie topped with whipped cream was not at all palatable; or that a heap of frer-ch fries with pan gravy was neither appealing nor appetizing. Then the day came when both of us had had the diet bit right to the teeth, and in order to keep our starving minds off food, decided to go for a ride in the country. After cruising through backroads dust for an hour or so, we came across a nice restaurant sporting a sign with the best looking ice cream soda we'd ever seen. Following a logical discus- sion as to why we deserved a special treat, we decided to wander in and take a look at the menu. Once inside, we were accost- ed by delicious smells of fry- ing burgers and felt we should perhaps go whole-hog and munch a bunch of forbidden goodies. Which we did and topped' the day by having a gorgeous hot fudge sundae with crush- ed walnuts. Since then, we've been slightly chubbier, and much happier. n and own F. W. Whitehouse of Victoria, secietary treasurer of the Fed- erated Superanuates National Association, was guest speaker at a recent meeting of the as- sociation.
