By HERB JOHNSON Staff Writer If Canadians do not take im- mediate action to regain con- trol of their own destiny, their children will be singing The Star Spangled Banner. That was the brunt of Mel Hurtig's message to Lethbridge Tuesday. He delivered it al- most non stop all day at a series of meetings in the city. At an evening address spon- sored by the local branch of the Committee for an Indepen- dent Canada and at the noon luncheon of the Southern Al- berta Council on Public Af- fairs, Mr. Hurtig spewed forth e fountain of statistics outlining the extent of foreign control of Canadian industry. He said, for example, that in 1971 Canada had reached the stage where 62 per cent of its manufacturing industry had been sold to foreign countries. Outside control extended to 99.9 per cent of the petroleum in- dustry, 83 per cent of tbe oil and gas industry, 90 per cent of the computer industry the statistics w-ent on and on. Only once were they chal- lenged by the audience. Cleo Mowers, publisher of The Leth- bridge Herald, questioned Mr. Hurtig's statement that 77 of 128 newspapers in Canada were foreign owned. Mr. Hurtig hacked down somewhat and the question of ownership and control was not definitely settled. The remaining figures and the numerous examples of for- eign economic domination, if accurate, provided an impres- sive case for Mr. Hurtig's con- vention that it is almost too late for Canadians to seriously consider becoming masters in their own house, Lest the audience get the idea he was a chauvinistic super patriot. Mr. Hurtig em- phasized Ite (and the CIC generally) is primarily inter- nationalist in his outlook. One of his main concerns, he said, is simply to see Canada as a sovereign nation a goal that can be achieved only through keeping the decision- making processes in this coun- try rather than in some head office in another country. He briefly outlined several methods that might be used to achieve this end, from a list of 37 approaches he has compiled. One was federal legislation to force an increase in the amount of money loaned by Canadian hanks to Canadians. (This point related to his "educated guess" that 70 per cent of the money loaned by the banks goes to foreign firms, much of it used to buy Canadian He also suggested formation of a takeover review board to examine any large equity in- vestments by outside firms, a slowdown in the outflow of raw- materials, development of high labor intensive industry and access to information regard- ing transactions between for- eign parent, companies and their Canadian subsidiaries. The total effect of these and other measurers, he said, would not be as drastic in terms of a reduction in the Ca- nadian standard of living as might be expected.

PHONE .127-2822 City outlines four incentives projects i Friday is the deadline for lo- cal organizations to submit pro- jects for city council considera- tion under the federal winter make-work program. When all proposals have been received, council will screen the applications to determine which appear to complement the city's own projects- The lo- cal organization and city pro- jects will then be submitted to the provincial and federal gov- ernments for approval. The projects will only be eh gible for federal or provincial I assistance if they can create a minimum of 30 man-months work and contribute new em- ployment in the city without! having an inflationary effect Applicants must also assure the projects will be non-profit and will contribute to commu- nity IxHterment. Unemployed workers must be sought through the Canada Manpower Centre. The city clerk will accept ap- plications until p.m. Fri- dav. City council Monday approv- ed in principle a recommenda- tion of the city manager which lists four projects which could qualify under federal incen- tives grants programs. The list includes a expansion of the water distribu- tion system. Before the action was taken, council was told the city is "rapidly outgrowing its present accommodation for water dis- tribution."

To handle the increase, he recommended an expansion of the water treatment plant, water trunk mains to the north- j east and southeast sections of j the city and an increase in the storage capacity- He further recommended the water treatment facility be ex- panded in at an estimated cost of and an enlarg- ed water trunk main be install- ed near Mayor Magrath Drive the same year costing City Manager Tom Nutting suggested trunk reinforcements in the northeast section of the citv be considered for the near future to accommodate indus- tries in the new industrial park. The estimated cost of those re- inforcements is S265.000. On a related mai.ier. council directed the City Manager to set up a committee to study present and future water needs of the city with the immediate aim of pressing for an increase in the daily minimum water flow. The directive came after council had considered an ad- ministrative study on the Old man Hivcr system in which the problem of guaranteeing suffi- cent water lo meet all the needs according to a priority schedule was outlined. That schedule listed, in order of priority, water for domestic, municipal, industrial, irriga- tion, water power and other purposes. The report suggest- ed a more average annual flow throughout the year is required to meet these needs. As it stands, the city is allow- ed by the provincial govern- ment to take fil cubic feet per second of water from the river. The city requested an allow- ance of 125 cubic feet per sec- ond as early as The committee will neces- sarily attempt, to get together with the provincial and federal governments to find solutions to the problem. The other projects listed for consideration under the federal incentives program are: limited conversion of existing overhead residential electrical wires to an under- ground network, capiUil works program for West Lclhbridge, valley improvement, of foreign investment at only one third of one per cent of the gross national product, he said.

So do elementary schools Education research needs more money By RON CALDWELL Staff Writer CALGARY More money must be spent on educational research in order to bring about long-range savings, Dr. Arthur Kratzmann, dean of education at the University of Saskatchewan in Rcgina, said Tuesday. In his address to the 65th an- nual convention of the Alberta School Trustees' Association, Dr. Kratzmann said there must be "a heavy emphasis on re- search if we are to effect true educational economy, which means getting the best value possible for each dollar spent." must initially spend some further monies on mean- ingful, field oriented research studies in order to effect eco- nomies." Dr. Kratzmann said he was encouraged to note that trus- tee Associations are providing funds for research.

Edmonton pub- lisher in Lethbridge Tuesday to promote the views of the Committee for an Indepen- dent Canada, tells of a con- test devised by Toronto broadcaster Peter Gzowskie. The idea was to complete the sentence ''As Canadian as Fourth place winner was "as Canadian as a royal com- mision." Third place went to "As Canadian as John Diefcnbak- cr's French." Second was "As Canadian as seasonally adjusted unem- ployment." First prize went to the per- son who came up with "As Canadian as possible under the circumstances.'1 CALGARY The Alberta School Trustees' Association has gone on record as opposing the plebiscite requirements im- posed upon school boards seek- ing extra supplementary re- quisitions on property tax. The association's annual meeting in Calgary was told that it is sometimes unfair to force boards to obtain public approval where extra expendi- tures are involved. One speaker said school boards are more aware of all the implications involved in ap- proving financial expenditures while the public may vote emo- tionally rather than with rea- son. "The federal, provincial and municipal governments are not following the six per cent guide- line for increased expenditures, so why are scbool boards ex- pected" to." asked Harold Gun- derson. of Calgary, newly-elect- ed ASTA president. A second resolution, which sparked lengthy debate before it was passed, called for the provincial government to estab- lish a program of educational experience for children before they enter Grade 1. The resolution called for fi- nancial support for the pro- gram from the provincial foun- dation grants program fund. Opponents charged that the program would rob youngsters of learning through experience and force them into a struc- tured education system too early. "Let them be children a little while said one speak- er. "They learn more when they i j are young through their own natural curiousily." Supporters of the resolution Gunderson elected argued that children would not be forced into anything.

New transportation bylaw to undergo investigation The new transportation by- law, which received much crit- icism at a recent public hear- ing, was referred to the city manager by city council Mon- day night. That, referral motion directed City Manager Tom Nutting to speak to the bylaw at a Nov. 24th meeting of the chamber of commerce, city council and provincial Highways Minister Clarence Copitliorne. Council appeared generally concerned with the designation of certain routes outlined in the bylaw, particularly the pro- posed 24th Ave- S. freeway. Alderman Cam Barnes ask- ed if the alternatives suggest- ed bv concerned citizens at the Mavor Andv Anderson said there was a provision m the bylaw for plans to be altered in the future. Aid. Vaughan Hembroff inter- preted that provision different- ly saying the city is likely to be "locked into the proposed system."
