S. PHONE 326-7121 New Arriving: THE NEW EUROPEAN FALL EYE FASHIONS for 1973 City odor queried Herald Legislative Bureau EDMONTON John Ander- son (SC-Lethbridge 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 (rial 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 liis 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 sollulion to livestock odors he said, is to ventilate the odors into a furnace and burn (hem. He 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.

By RON CALDWELL Herald Staff Writer EDMONTON Education In Alberta is in serious trouble il the Worth Commission's report on education planning is an ex- ample of the best education minds in the province, Lhe 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- a School Trustees Association, .hat the only value he saw in the Worth Report is that it may serve to 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 Heport dominated this conven- tion. The main significance of the report, Ire 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 hi said Mr. Charlton. "It sounds like Bible Bill CLIFF BLACK, CerllMed Denial Mechanic LACK DENTAL LAI MEDICAL DENTAL BIDS. Lewor Ltvel PHONE 327-2122 If Ifs Great Fashion It's At CANADIAN FURRIERS Aberhart with a sociology de gree." He said the report is loadec with misconceptions, errors am even misspellings. "It is bad scholarship. Its as sumptions are unprovcn anc most of the social trends it pre enlends 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 anc they think because of this it must be right, he said. "It tells us that the PliDs anc 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 Ihe report for being anti-intellectual and anli- tiistorical. No research was done earlier an 1962, he said, "they totally .gnored the history of cduca- :ion." 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. "It has no value as a docu- ment on what we should follow By GREG McINTYRE Herald Legislative Bureau Dick Gruen- wald (SC-Lelhbridge West) said Tuesday in the legislature that Lhe Worth Report on Educa- tional Planning failed by ac- cepling that there will be a breakdown in future morals and values. Speaking during debate on he report, the former president of tho Alberta School Trustees Associalion, said the report should have recommended a to teaching values through Christian principles in schools. "The report was plainly afraid to tackle Christian dis- Mr. GrucnwaJd elab- crnled in an interview.

"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 pei-sons 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 [he 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 lhat 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. City MLA- morals ignored lure lhat 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 t h e 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 SWIHAUT Herald Staff Writer The 526 million hog slaughter and processing plant proposed at Taber is an example of the find of enterprise that would 3e prohibited under a bill pro- wsed by Algeria's only New democratic MLA. The hog development would lave plant operators control- ling the entire production, pro- cessing and marketing chain, which, Grant Nctley told The Gerald Tuesday, would prove a lardship on the small farmer. Bill 208, as proposed by Mr. Motley, would prohibit large msiness 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 ate subsidiary of CP Rail which apparently has boughl arge tracts of irrigation land in southern Alberta, was includ- ed on Mr. Notley's list of cor- porations which could be af ected under such a bill. Stressing that the bill was meant more as a preventive ban a curative measure, Mr indicated that Swift Ca- nadian Co. Ltd., Canada Pack- ers Ltd. and Gainers Ltd., all meat packing concerns will' plants in Alberta, are examples of corporations wMch also could fall under the of his proposed bill, especially if they continued to expand into the agricultural industry. Mr. Nctley said he was con- cerned mainly with a trend in he U.S. which has corporations such as DOW Chemical, the 5ank of America and Coca-Cola vith vested interests in the agricultural industry. He aimed the bill at Inte- grated corporation giants which vould control the entire agri- ultural chain from production o marketing. "The bill was intended to pro- ect the family farm and Uic amily farm he aid. Because of the bill, the large orporations would be prohibit- ed from acquiring farms, leav- ng production in the hands of armers and ranchers. For this reason, he said, the ill would not affect family irm corporations, incorporat- for taxation purposes and on which 80 per cent of the in- omes was derived directly rom agricultural activities, or operative corporations where SO per cent of individu- 1s living of such farms de- ended principally on farming ir their livelihood. The bill was talked to the ottom of the order paper in lie legislature Nov. 3 and now list wait for nine other pri- ate members' bills before it an be heard again. It is un- kely the bill will be intro- uced again in this sitting. Mr. Notley said he feels the ill is good and indicated he -ill introduce it again. Marvin Galls, regional eco- omist for the Alberta depart- ment of agriculture, said he i where It could be very advan- feels the bill is something to try I tageous to incorporate to get people excited about a he said. "They haven't. Pro- problem which doesn't exist. He said fully integrated agri- cultural systems aren't evident in Alberta. "Go to the market crops, vegetable, potato and sugar beet crops in southern Alberta duction slill remains with in- dividuals." Mr. Gaits said it would be much better to design a. tax structure to eliminate Ihe ad- vantage to large corporations when land is bought for specu- lation.

REGULAR EVENING AUCTION AT THE WAREHOUSE 1920 2nd AVE. S. Thursday, November 9th SALE STARTS P.M. 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 toe many persons are now asking for short term jobs insteac 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 jeing seriously abused. Records .0 date do not show any abuse, e claimed. He said Uie Canada Manpow- and Immigration Depart- ment recently conducted a ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC Schwartz Bldg. 222 5th SI. S. Phong 328-4095 study to renew similar com- plaints and did not find any- thing. However, Canada Manpower will probably be conducting re- gular investigations to ensurs Lhe 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.
