Under the supervision of pro- gram workers, the youngsters will create, design, and make their own puppets; build their own scenery; write their own script and produce a puppet show. The minimum age for the string puppet workshop will be 10 years, due to the complexity of operating a siring puppet.

LEROY'S PLUMBING GASFiniNG SERVICE WORK NEW INSTALLATIONS PHONE 328-8403 'Fine neighbors" County drops idea of Hutterite brief By GREG MelNTYRE Herald Staff Writer After a stormy few minutes, the County of Lethbridge coun- cil realized it could not reach any agreement about whether or not Hutterite colonies should be limited in size. So council decided not to make any presentation to a special committee of Ola Alber- ta legislature looking into the issue. The committee, which in- cludes Leighton Buckwell (SC- Macleod) and Ted Hinman (SC-Canlston) is to report to tlie legislature by Oct. 20 on "the effects of the communal use of land on the economic and social climate of Alberta." Tiie committee has requested all municipal councils, groups and individuals in the proviuco to express their views. Lethbridge County Council- lor 0. E. Wobick said the coun- cil should present a brief to the legislative committee. Mr. Wobick opposed legisla- tion the Communal Proper- ties Act which limits the size of Hutterite land holdings. "Whether we do or we don'l have enough Hutterites in the county I don't believe in he said.

County budget set at million Compulsory sterilization laws opposed by geneticists' meet By RICHARD HURKE ifcrald Staff Writer Canadian geneticists have once again come out in strong opposition to the compulsory sterilization law in British Col- umbia and have called for im- mediate repeal of, the act. At the same time, the Genet- ics Society ot Canada has ac- knowledged a recent repeal of a similar act in.Alberta. At a news conference Thurs- day. Dr. James Miller, presi- dent-elect of the society, said Ihe laws were enacted on the "naive assumption that if you stop people from reproducing, it will solve problems." The acts were intended to prevent the reproduction of in- dividuals with mental compulsory sterilization. There is "little scientific validity either in their theoretical gen- etic basis or social re- the society says.

A nation- wide study of fatal accidents has revealed that people who have been injured in rural areas are almost Sfour times more (liable to die of I, t h e i r injuries I than those who 1 have been in jur- ied in city or ur- 5 ban areas! The I surprising- fact, developed by the American Medical Association's Council on Rural Health, turns out lo be that accidents and injuries suffered in rural areas are actually less serious than those occurring in city or urban areas. The danger in the rural areas seems to be closely re- lated to the inability to render effective first aid and quick hospitalizalion. Let's all be careful, wherever we are; but especially so when we're "out in the country."

Dr. Stebbins, a plant geneti- cist from the University of Cal- ifornia at Davis, spoke to about 200 geneticlsls at Sven E rick- sen's Family Restaurant. Man, more than any other organism, has the potential to remain unchanged, Dr. Steb- bins said. "Plants and most animals must adapt to their environ- ment, but man makes the envi- ronment adapt to him." Evolutionary changes might }est be discovered by Ihe study of planls, Dr. Stebbins said. Thirty years ago, he planted strains of South African rass and only recently found genetic change. The change might, "in an- other 30 herald the tart of a new species with 'new he said. Planls have changed radical- y, but man is the same now, jasically, as he has been for housands of years. Man is part if the two per cent that re- mains of some 100 million species which have existed dur- ing the history of evolution.

The act hasn't been used in years in B.C., Dr. Miller said, but had been used in, recent years in this province. B.C. is the only province in Canada with the "antiquated" law, Dr. Miller said. Dr. Miller is chairman o! the committee on genetics as it re- lates to social problems, of the genetics society. He said the committee has recently considered abortion and genetics counselling along with sterilization to bring to the attenlion of provincial and fed- eral governments the society's stand. The statement on steriliza- tion came during the 17th an- nual meeting of the Genetics Society of Canada, which con- cludes today.

The largest .stogie item is million to operate the county's 19 schools and pay sal- aries for 170 teachers. Tire 1972 budget is 174.18 compared with 1G5.26 last year. The county will oil about 20 miles of roads within its 800, 000-acre territory this summer. Last year crews applied the dust settling program to just over one mile of. road. Included in the Jan. 1 to Dec. 31, 1972 budget are four diesel tandem dump trucks to be used mainly for hauling gravel. County secretary Bob Madill said the Canadian Union ol Public Employees signed its first contract with the loca] council to cover about 50 out- side workers in April. The labor contract provided raises of about 25 per cent for those employees over one year lie said. The average salary in crease for the county's admin istrative staff was about six per cent.

L. Hammerton, western director of the Genetics Society of Can- ada said here Thursday. "No pregnancy of a woman over 35 should go through with- out her being offered this test during her pre-natal Dr. Hammerton, a pedialrics pro- fessor at the University of Manitoba, said. However, the women should be given Ihe test only if they are willing to consider an abor- tion, Dr. Hammerton said. "There is no point in doing the test he said. Women over 35 have only 10 per cent of all babies, but have 50 per cent of all babies suf- fering from mongolism, he said. A test conducted during the early part of the pregnancy, aboul the I5th week, involves faking fluid from the women through abdominal wall by a needle. An aborlion could be performed before the 20th week, Ihe safe period sug- gested by the medical associa- tion. ANTIQUE AND BY-GONE AUCTION SALE AT THE AUCTION BARN SAT., JUNE 24th -10 A.M.
