Legislature Roundup Opposition claims pollution in Alberta worst in west EDMONTON (CP) - The opposition went after the government on pollution again in the legislature Thtirsday, claiming Alberta has more pollution than any other prairie province. "The only other province In Western Canada with more pollution is British Columbia, and they also have a Social Credit government," said Bill Yurko (PC - Strathcona east), the opposition's specialist on the environment. He ticked off a list of rivers in the province that biologists have found polluted and said the Wapiti river in the northwest is one of the few yet untainted. A pulp mill is planned for the Wapiti, he said, and pollution-control regulations for the mill are not stringent enough-John Landeryou (SC - Leth-bridge) proposed a motion urging the federal government to replace direct cost - sharing with unconditional transfer payments on an equitable basis. The provinces are in a better position to "judge the needs and requirements of their people, and quite capable of carrying out their constitutional responsibilities," be said. Lee Leavitt (SC - Calgary Queen's Park) said cost-sharing has led to centralization of power, with Ottawa getting "too much power of dictation on what type of program is implemented." The Social Credit government was to blame, said Hugh Horn- CLIP THIS AD New World Restaurant DOWNTOWN at 329 5th Street S.

He stresses that young people must be "re- ASHPHALT PAVING T0LLESTRUP SAND and Construction PHONE 328-2702 sponsibly involved, with a settled desire to incur full responsibility for one another." In a lively collection of essays called Touching on Christian Truth, published Thursday, Lord Fisher notes: "There are some young people today for whom, for many good reasons, marriage is not an immediate possibility." The church, he suggests, should update its theology of sex to meet their needs. Lord Fisher proposes that formal betrothal be revived, with practical as well as social significance. He says betrothal "would have to take place with the full consent of the two families concerned. Nursery burns POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y.
