Alberta Kinsmen best fund raisers Alberta Kinsmen raised more money last year than their counterparts in any other prov- ince, the club's national presi- dent said Friday night. Pierre Blanchard of Montreal said in an interview in Leth- bridge that the 470-club national machine rais- ed about ?7 million across Can- ada, and Alberta clubs led the country. The majority of the money raised went toward community service projects in Canada. But the Canadian Kinsmen, who are affiliated with similar BYU choir to perform on Nov. 16 Brigham Young University's A Cappella Choir will perform Nov. 16 at the LDS Stake Cen- tre, beginning at 8 p.m. The 70-hand picked student vocalist's under the direction of Dr. Ralph Woodward have be- come known internationally since they received first place in the Eisteddfodi in Llangollen, Wales in 1968 following their first European tour. In 1970, the group became the iirst non-Catholic reigious en- semble to perform in Parisr Notre Dame Cathedral and was named the Best International ir at the Austria Cen- tennial Festival. The same year the choir was nvited to perform at the 1070 international Music Conference in Moscow. The choir's repertoire con- sists of selections from within the last 500 years and from all over the world. Numbers range Torn Renaissance motels to Negro spirituals, with the song jerformed as the composer in- :ended, with the original lang- uage and accompaniment. The group also performs ori- ginal compositions and special arrangements of hymns and "oik songs. Tickets for its local appear- ance are available at Doug's Sports Ltd. young men's service organiza- tions in 30 countries, also do- nate toward service projects in the developing nations. Last year was spent on a refugee village in Hong Kong, for instance. The about Lethbridge club has 40 members, down from some 80 last year. No rea- son was given for the decline in membership but Mr. Blan- chard said the national mem- bership is slowly increasing. Mr. Blanchard, 37, was elect- ee! head of the service organiza- tion, open to men between 21 and 40 years of age, at the 52nd Kinsmen national conven- tion in Calgary last summer. Currently on a swing through Alberta after touring British Columbia, he will, in the next PIERRE BLANCHARD days, visit Edmonton Spruce Grove, Grande Prairie, Camrose and Vegreville. He will visit Saskatchewan for five days before returning to Mon- treal. 'Most of the communities I zm visiting have not been visit- ed by a national president be- he said. "It is our pol- icy for the national president to meet as many Kinsmen in Canada as possible." There are 63 clubs in Alberta, including 10 in the zone south of Vulcan. Meeting with Mr. Blanchard Friday night were Bill Kite, dis- trict governor for Alherta from St. Albert, and Gordon Bruins from Vauxhall, the deputy dis- trict governor for southern Al- berta.

By GREG McINTYRE Herald Legislative Bureau EDMONTON Two south- ern Alberta MLAs on a legis- lative committee that Friday recommended repeal of the Communal Properties Act said the Alberta government can no longer justify discrimination against Hutterites. The act to repeal the Com- munal Properties Act will be debated in the legislature next week. Leighton Buckwell (SC-Mac- leod) and Ted fflnman (SC- Cardston) said the act restrict- ing the size of Hutterite land holdings has outlived its useful- ness. Mr. Hinmsn said the act was legislated duving the 1940s when there a "high degree of emotionalism" by rural Al- bertans who feared that Hulter- ites were going to buy up much prime land while men were away at war. There was a real danger that unless the government did something there was going to be beatings and burnings, he said. However, with the declin- ing rural population it is un- likely the general public will any longer support legislation that discriminates against a partic- ular group." Mr. Hinman said he would like lo see a study by Ihe de- partment of education into Hut- terite schools because the whole avea of the relation between public and private schools of removing reslric- on the size of Hutterite However, if people There are criticisms read the committee's re- Hutterite education and the they would sec that there nancing of this kind of no justification for restric- gated school that should looked into, he The communal of the report have committee recommended printed for the public anc separate study of the available by writing (o the of Hutterite children office, the Legislature the subject was too complex Edmonton. inclusion in its investigations have Mr. Buekwell said the that Hutlerites are not munal Properties Act had danger that some people come unenforceable they said the Mac- Hutterites had leased MLA. thereby sidestepping a addition to the rights of lion on them owning land that must be consid- yonu certain there are also rights of The committee was who want to sell land to that the act would be in but ware prohibited tion to the human rights the old act." islation introduced at the Buckwell said in land sitting of the legislature by to Hutterites both the buy- Lougheed government, he and seller benefited, yet it Mr. Buckwell said there only the Hutlerites that got likely to be a slight "flurry" trouble.

Experts take DDT off recommended list, province to follow By RICK SWIHART Herald Staff Writer DDT will not be recommend- ed for farm use on the Prairies in 1073. The once iiniva-sally ac- claimed insecticide has been removed from the list of insec- ticides which the Western Com- mittee on Crop Pesticides rec- ommends for use in agriculture. The committee, consisting ot scientists and government offi- cials, DDT from its list during a recent meeting in Vancouver. The provincial de- partments of agriculture are expected to follow the commit- tee's lead and not include DDT on their lists of recommended pesticides after 1972. Dr. Neil Holmes, crop entomology section head at the Lethbridpe Research Station, says DDT will remain register- ed with the plant products divi- sion of the Canada department of agriculture. STILL LEGAL "DDT was never banned from use and because it is still regis- tered, it Is legal to use the in- secticide in he said. "Because of the recommenda- tions of the Western Committee on Crop Pesticides, DDT will just no longer be used by farm- ers." The demise of DDT as an ef- fective insecticide started when environmentalists began worry- in? about the long residual life of DDT, said Dr. Holmes. The effects of DDT last 15 years or longer. In 1967, the chemical was still recommended for use on plant bugs in alfalfa seed fields, Col- orado potato beetles, the cur- rant fruit fly, bucs and fleas, crickets, carpet beetles .1 n d sowbues. said Dr. Holmes. In 1971, WCCP cut the list to protection against flea beetles on rapeseed and sugar beet crops and red turnip beetles on raneseed crops. The committee decided that the agricultural industry now has satisfactory substitute in- secticides, Dr. Holmes says. DECLINE He said a general examina- tion of food stocks and livestock feed stacks has shown a con- tinuing decline of residues of in- secticides during the slowdown in use of DDT. The level of in- secticides residues found in res- ident birds of prey are also showing encouraging drops from abeady low levels, ac- cording to Canadian fish and wildlife officials, he said. "As far as I know, DDT Is no longer available for agricul- tural uses, although it is still recommended for treatment of lice on said Dr. Holmes. DDT in treating fleas and bed bugs appears to have resulted in those pests becoming a com- mon problem at the West Coast. Dr. W. C, Stewart, director of research nl the Defence Re- search Establishment at Suf- field, said in a telephone inter- view Friday that destruction of government stocks of DDT were started last year and will continue this winter. He said the department of na- tional defence had large stocks of DDT in a kerc- sone solution. To destroy the thermal destructor wliich burns and stocks, a was built breaks down the insecticides lo component parts. "No toxic sub- stances he said. "The federal department of the environment has collected a.- is in the process of collect- ing DDT stocks from across Canada. These will likely be de- stroyed at Suffield in a similar manner as the five per cent sol- ution stocks." Dr. Stewart said he was not sure how large the slocks were outside the jurisdiction of the department of national defence. Brian Curan, envionmental poaclion services officer for the Ca'iada department of the envl.-onment In Edmonton, said all surplus stocks in Alberta are in SuffieJd. He said the cam- paign to collect the surplus stocks was started last January when requests were sent to pri- vate individuals and all govern- ment deprrlments. He said there are about five 45-gallon drums of liauid DDT in storage at Suffield and 10 drums of pure DDT p o w d e r, all collected from points in Alberta. He said the marketing of DDT has been so poor that re- tailers and manufacturers will- inply pave the department all their stocks. "They wanted to get rid of it because it was tak- ing up valuable storage he said. System favored Returnable cars? A deposit refund system for cent of those surveyed. About cars? The customer pays a de- CO per cent thought the same posit when he buys a and' should apply lo paper prod- gets the deposit back when his car is ready for the junk heap. Most people in the province seem lo think it's a good idea. In a recent survey of homes and 650 retailers, provincial department of the the environment found that G9 per cent of the people wore in favor of such a system The survey, conducted last summer by 15 university stu- dents in six cilies, was aimed primarily at smaller consumer Hems and was instrumental in the decision lo make wine and liquo- bottles returnable. Food cans and jars, for ex- ample, through system, according to 57 per should be recycled Ihe deposit refund ucts. Retailers and consumers were generally in favor of stan- dard pop bottles. The refillable type has increased in popular- ity and disposable cans are loss popular than Ihey have been. The surveyors asked U peo- ple be willing to separ- a'e their household garbage into paper, metal, glass and wet garbage containers. More than CO po- cent said they be in favor and 33 per cent said they would take all or some of Ihe separated gar- bage1 lo salvage depots. Only 14 per cent of the people were op- posed lo separating their gar- bage.
