Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 11, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE IFTHBRIDGE HERAlD-Salurdoy, March 11, 197J By LARRY BENNETT Censorship of films, television ami printed natter should bo ceased and an accurate rating sys- iem developed in its place. The responsibility of "policing the morality of youth" should be placed exactly where it belongs in the hands of parents. If parents are incapable of instilling moral values in their offspring, then no amount of censorship will really help. Those who think it will are only fooling themselves. A moral code can not be legislated, it must be learned. Parents who either do not care enough, or are too weak or too lazy to restrict their children from watching programs they feel are not suitable on tele- vision, reading books and magazines they feel are pornographic and going to "skin-flick" movies and expect censors to do it for them, really want to force their views on Ihe rest of the public. If I want to watch some violence on the read some smut or see a "dirty" movie it should be my privilege. I should not be restricted because someone else's child might be offended or upset. Theatre-owners should not be held responsible for preventing persons of a particular age from seeing a specific movie; again the responsibility should rest on the parents. In (he case of television violence, if a rating sys- tem cannot be established as a guideline to parents and they are in doubt about a program, all they would have to do is watch it. Written matter may be a little harder to control, but if the parents are doing their job it should pre- sent little problem. Theatre owners should continue as they are cur- rently doing, by including the movies' ratings in their advertisements. A movie censorship board should lose its right to edit parts of films it finds objectionable, but should retain the right to rate the film as they see it. The ratings could and should bo used to deter- mine if a parent will allow his child to see a movie, or if, in fact, the parent wants to see the movie. If a parent finds a particular TV program to be unsuitable for his child or himself he has the respon- sibility to shut the set off or change stations. If some printed matter obtained by a youth is considered immoral by his parents, then the parents should attempt to educate their child why it is wrong or bad to read such material, rather than simply to take it away. If a movie is offensive to a parent, he can walk- out. If he has been a responsible parent he should be able to prevent his child from going, or better yet have created a code which would make such a film have little interest for the child. Censoring television, printed matter and the movies by cutting out sex and violence is like whis- pering in an almost audible tone. It only makes the subject of the secret much more interesting. Dryland farming tests progressing Hy R1C SW1IIAHT Herald Staff Writer Research to improve dryland fanning production in India is progressing favorably, accord- ing to Dr. J. E. Andrews, di- rector of the Lcthbridge Re- search Stafion. Just back from a two-month fact-finding mission to the five research centres in India, Dr. Andrews said nnich work has been accomplished since the program was initiated two years ago. Dr. Andrews, who supervises six-man Canadian research unit stationed in India, said he was particularly pleased with (lie co-operation of the Indian government. They consider it of vast economic importance to tiieir country and the project has re- ceived the personal support of Prime Minister said Dr. Andrews. "With 650 million people to consider, they have improved production greatly but realize :his increase must go much itrlher to keep up with the in- creasing population." Apparently only 20 per cent of the farm land is set up for rrigation. This leaves SO per cent for dryland farmers. The Indian farmers have not Distillery may seek Alia, grant Gil bey Canada Ud. is expect- ed to make an announcement regarding its application for a provincial grant to build a dis- tillery maturing plant in Leth- bridge, following the federal government's refusal to give an area incentives grant. Gilbey had been applying for the federal grant for a year on behalf of International Distil- lers of Canada Ltd., a wholly- owned subsidiary of Interna- tional Distillers and Vintners Ltd. of London, City Manager Tom said he had "nothing to tell" about Gtibey's plans.

Born in Calgary May 24. 1916, Dr. Johnson joined the Camp- I bell Ciinic in Lethbridge 1945. DR. J. E. ANDREWS :iad any improvement in cul- :ural practices on dry land for hundreds of years. Although the yield on irriga- tion land is high, production on dryland operations is very low. Wheat farmers on dryland operations get only five to 10 bushels per acre. With the establishment of tins program, India has estab- lished positions for 218 Indian research scientists. There hava uoen 125 already appointed. The Canadian contribution to the program is to maintain a close co-operation with the In- dian scientists to develop (he research program. It is based on Canadian technology used in dryland farming in this country. Dr. Andrews said the five- year program will bo turned over to the Indian scientists eventually. He said the outcome of the program hopefully will be im- proved a g r icitlUiral practices, better methods of conserving soil and water and an intro- duction of mechanization in both agricuHural practices and equipment. The Canadian Industrial De- velopment Agency is financing the Canadian contribution with the work done by tlie research hranch of the Canada depart- ment of agriculture. The scientists from Canada work with the Indian Council of Agricultural Research, India's counterpart to the CDA. The scientists involved In- clude: Dr. W. PcUon and F. W. Warder of Swift Current, Sask.; Dr. D. K. McBealh of La- combe; Dr. George Friesen of the University of Manitoba; and Anderson of the Lethbridge Research Station. Russ Lunney, former agricul- tural engineer for General Farm Supplies of Lethbridge, is also involved.

Lethbridge magistrate's eourt Thursday and Judge L. W. Hudson reserved a decision un- til March 29 on a charge of breaking a court order.

Judge Hudson said he was not pleased with the wording ol the court order and it could have been quite unclear to a layman. He said the charge of abduc- lioii had licen laid because al the time the child disappeared authorities believed tlie court hud awarded custody of him to Mrs. Patricia Jenkins. 1 "After the boy's disappear- ance the court did award cus- tody to the mother, but at the lime his father look him, cus- i tody had not been said the judge. Judge Hudson reserved his j judgment on the charge of breaking a court order until March 29 to review all the evi- dence presented and study pre- vious cases with similar partic- ulars.
