PHONE 328-7121 Now Arriving: THE NEW EUROPEAN FALL EYE FASHIONS for 1973 City odor queried Herald Legislative Bureau EDMONTON John Ander- son (SC-Lelhbridge East) ask- ed in the legislature Tuesday whether the government has taken any action in response to complaints about odor from City Packers Ltd. meat packing plant in Lethbridge. Environment Minister Bill Yurko replied "I'd have to check into this matter and re- port back to the house." In an interview, Mr. Ander- son said he has received num- erous complaints from consti- tuents about the smell. Mr. Yurko said outside the house the environment depart- ment is currently studying pol- lution from all kinds of indus- trial plants to bring them into line with pollution standards in the Clean Air Act. He said while smell is a very difficult thing to measure, the department determines the pol- lution by the nuisance the odor creates, "in other words the number of complaints." He said his department will likely attack the meat packing plant odor problem in Leth- bridge by first advising the in- dustry what can be done to clean up. One sollution to livestock odors he said, is to ventilate the odors into a furnace and burn them. Ha said if after Initial con- sultation, there are still com- plaints about pollution, the en- vironment department would likely conduct a study and ad- vise the industry of the results of the pollutions study and what could be done. If the pollution was severe, he said, the government would then consider incentives to the industry to move the offensive plant away from a centre of population.

Damages total- fed over Ervin photo Report draws more fire By RON CALDWELL Herald Staff Writer EDMONTON Education in Alberta is in serious trouble if the Worth Commission's report on education planning is an ex- ample of the best education minds in the province, the chairman of the Toronto Board of Education said here Tues- day. Bill Charlton, who appears weekly on the CBC national network game show, This Is The Law, told delegates at the annual convention of the Alber- ta School Trustees Association, that the only value he saw in the Worth Report is that it may serve lo get people thinking about education. "But at a cost of it's an expensive way to begin a he said. It was the second day in a row that criticism of the Worth Report dominated this conven- tion. The main significance of the report, he said, is that it tells the state of education in Al- berta today. 'If these are the best minds available to write on education then I think we are in said Mr. Charlton.

He said the report is loaded with misconceptions, errors and even misspellings. "It is bad scholarship. Its as- sumptions are unprovcn and most of the social trends it pre- entends to identify have been identified for the past he said. One of the big problems is that people will accept what a report like this says because its a government report and they think because of this it must be right, he said. "It tells us that Uie PliDs and MDs not trustees are in control of he said, "the Philistines have taken over." One of the major errors in the report is its effort to try to forecast the future. No one knows what is going to happen in 20 or 30, years, he said. "People are still trying to figure out what happened a week ago in the federal elec- said Mr. Charlton. "It won't go down in history as an accurate forecast of the future." He condemned the report for being anti-intellectual and anti- historical. No research was done earlier than 1962, he said, "they totally ignored the history of educa- tion." He questioned how Dr. Worth could read social trends and make accurate predictions after studying what has taken place in only the past 10 years.

"The language is not specific and many of the statements arc not backed up by research nor can they be." Mr. Charlton said, the report has suggested that traditional values are no longer satisfac- tory but it doesn't even say what traditional values are. "This sort of essay would have been questioned if it had been done by a grade 9 stu- dent for an educational report. It is absolutely unforgivable." He said Dr. Worth's idea that schools can turn children into "blissful sensual intellectual persons is false." "Try leaving a child to his own devices and see what hap- he said. Mr. Charlton also criticized the report for its arrogance. "It purports to be the collec- tive opinion of the ablest edu- cation minds in Alberta on what should happen in the prov- ince in the next 10, 20 or 50 years, and then it sets out the attitudes the public will have to adopt for things to happen in education. "It hopes that it will be a sig- nificant document in those terms. "I think it's an unintelligible document to any reader and to any self-respecting academic. "It is founded on the arro- gance of being able to predict the future and on ignorance of the history of education." Mr. Charlton told the trust- ees they got what they deserve in the Worth report because they have let the so-called in- tellectuals take the control of education away from them.

SONY LLOYDS DUAL NORESCO By GREOf McINTYRE Herald Legislative Bureau Dick Gruen- wald (SC-Lethbridge West) said Tuesday in the legislature that the Worth Report on Educa- tional Planning failed by ac- cepting that there will be a breakdown in future morals and values. Speaking during debate on the report, the former president of the Alberta School Trustees Association, said the report should have recommended a return to teaching values through Christian principles in schools.

He also rejected the idea in the report of an "Alberta Ac- a kind of community learning centre. lie said (lie government can only accept recommendations within ils budget limitations and lhat there are currently plenty of opportunities for peo- ple who wnnt to continue their education beyond their school years. Ho s.iirl the report failed lo look inlo some critical educa- tion requirements in the prov- ince, for example, (lie need for schools of oplometivy or chlro- prnclic at universities in Cal- gary or lOdmonlon. Former Education Minister I Robert Clark told the legisla- ture that Alberta's Progres- sive Conservative government committed a "serious blunder" when it appointed as the dep- uty minister of advanced educa- tion a man whose previous re- sponsibility was charting the course of education in the prov- ince. Mr. Clark's comment came during debate of a report on the future of education in Al- berta prepared by Dr. Walter Worth, now the depty minister. Motley bill would outlaw Taber plant By R1C SW1HART Herald Staff Writer The ?26 million hog slaughter and processing plant proposed at Taber is an example of the kind of enterprise that would be prohibited under a bill pro- posed by Alberta's only New Democratic MLA. The hog development would have plant operators control- ling the entire production, pro- cessing and marketing chain, which, Grant Notley told The Herald Tuesday, would prove a hardship on the small farmer. Bill 208, as proposed by Mr. Notley, would prohibit large business corporations from en- gaging in farming. Also, large corporations that now own land would have to dispose of it before 1975 or face expropriation by the province. Marathon Realty, the real es- tate subsidiary of CP Rail, which apparently has bought large tracts of irrigation land in southern Alberta, was includ- .ed on Mr. Notley's list of cor- porations which could be af- fected under such a bill. Stressing that the bill was meant more as a preventive than a curative measure, Mr. Notley indicated that Swift Ca- nadian Co. Ltd., Canada Pack- ers Ltd. and Gainers Ltd., all meat packing concerns with plants in Alberta, are examples of corporations which also could fall under the claws of his proposed bill, especially if they continued to expand into Uie agricultural industry. Mr. Notley said he was con- cerned mainly with a trend in the U.S. which has corporations such as DOW Chemical, the Bank of America and Coca-Cola with vested interests in the agricultural industry. He aimed the bill at inte- grated corporation giants which would control the entire agri- cultural chain from production to marketing. "The bill was intended to pro- tect the family farm and the family farm he said. Because of the bill, the large corporations would be prohibit- ed from acquiring farms, leav- ing production in the hands of farmers and ranchers. For this reason, he said, Uie bill would not affect family farm corporations, incorporat- ed for taxation purposes and on which 80 per cent of the in- comes was derived directly from agricultural activities, or co operative corporations where SO per cent of individu- als living of such farms de- pended principally on farming for their livelihood. The bill was talked to the bottom of the order paper in the legislature Nov. 3 and now must wait for nine other pri- vate members' bills before it can be heard again. It is un- likely the bill will be intro- duced again in this sitting. Mr. Notley said he feels the bill is good and indicated he will introduce it again.

Official claims cripples work By RUDY HAUGENEDER Herald Staff Writer Higher unemployment insur- ance rates are crippling the in- centive to work, claims a top Lethbridge union official. The official, who wishes to remain anonymous, said too many persons are now asking for short term jobs instead of permanent work in order to collect the higher unemploy- ment insurance benefits. New unemployment insurance rates increasing the maximum benefit to per week, went .into effect Jan. 1, 1972. "Why go to work when the benefits for not working are is the attitude of many working men, the union official said. An ever increasing number of workers, including family men, only work enough weeks to become eligible for benefits, he added. Under existing Unemploy- ment Insurance Commission terms, a worker is required to work at least eight weeks be- fore becoming eligible for bene- fits. If local, regional and national unemployment is heavy, an un- employed person meeting cer- tain conditions, can collect benefits for a maximum of 51 weeks. The worker must also be "ready and willing" to fill available jobs in order to col- lect benefits. An Edmonton Statistics Can- ada spokesman told The Herald that it is still too early to judge whether the new UIC rates are being seriously abused. Records to date do not show any abuse, he claimed. He said the Canada Manpow- er and Immigration Depart- ment recently conducted a ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC Schwartz Bldg. 222 5th St. S.

However, Canada Manpower will probably be conducting re- gular investigations to ensure the new benefit rates are not abused. The Lethbridge Construction Association says it is not sure whether the new benefits have led to massive abuse, "But local general contractors are having difficulty finding work- a spokesman said Tues- day.
