Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 14, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuiidoy, 14, 197J Repeal of act not directed at Hutterites, association told By niC SWIIIART llcralil (Staff Writer COCHRANE The proposed repeal of the Communal Prop- erties Act was designed to con- trol the purchase of agricultur- al land in Alberta by large companies and was not direct- ed at the Hutterian Brethren, according lo a report to the Western Stock Growers Associ- ation on Monday. An almost forgotten question at the end of a zone meeting (or the livestock association here Monday revealed the group's understanding of the situation and a showed decided rolit among directors on the controversial issue. George Chattaway, a direct- or from the Cochrane zone of the association, said lie wouldn't touch the question with a 10- foot-pole. He said it was a pol- itical question, similar to tho foreign owership issue. Neil Harvie, vice president of the association, rebuked Mr. Chattaway's stand. He said if there is an issue the members feel contentious and one to which the association can con- tribute a producer consensus to assist government, the group shouldn't duck it. At this, Jack Butler, zone dir- ector from Youngrtown, east of Drumheller, told the 200 farm- ers and ranchers that the pro- vincial government was aiming at large companies which were buying up agricultural land. He said Bob Dowliog, minis- ster responsible for tourism in Alberta, told him Uie Communal Properties Act wasn't working effectively and that "there were some ways around the in- tent of the act." Mr. Butler said he was in- formed of a company in Lelh- bridge which owns 10 sections at land. Two Lethbridge men have equal shares in the com- pany and Hutterites farm Uie land. Mr. Butler said the large companies were giving more concern to the provincial gov- ernment than the Hutterites. "When the new legislation comes through, the Hutterites will end up In the same place as he said, "The large companies buying land will be more tightly controlled." One fanner from the Hamj district closed the discussion and earned a round of applause when he struck out at the Hut- terites. He decried the lack of citizen- ship of the older members of colonies who weren't born in Canada. 60 hear debate on death penalty With the five year debate on Uie question of capital pun- ishment about to be settled this winter, about GO people gather- ed to hear the issue debated Monday. Judge F. T. Byrne acted as moderator for the forum spon- sored by the John Howard So- ciety. It was held at the Leth- bridge Community College. "Capital punishment is not the hallmark of a just said Dr. Scott Angus, speaking with Dennis O'Connell in favor of its abolition. "Each person must ask lumself what it would do to him personally to actual' Investment meeting Wednesday The Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce will hold a public meeting at the Park Plaza Motor Hotel Wednesday to dis- cuss foreign investment in Al- berta. The meeting begins at p.m. A chamber spokesman says members and anyone else with "strong feelings" on foreign control, the job situation in Al- berta and how to encourage Al- bertans to invest in the prov- ince's industry are Invited to the meeting. Richard Barton, the cham- ber's provincial affairs chair- man, will direct the meeting. 100 Copies plui tn 726? AYS. S ly perform the act which would take another person's life." Mr. O'Connell, director of Lethbridge's department of economic development office agreed that the act was in- human and a case of society treating the symptom rather than the disease. He suggested that its alterna- tive should be an incarceration and rehabilitation process. Local lawyer Dick Williams responded that people who con- sidered that all criminals could be rehabilitated were dream- ers, and that the practical slife of the problem must be con- sidered. Mr. Williams was speaking in favor of the retention ol capital punishment as It now stands, in the case of the mur- der of a policeman or prison guard. Rex Little, also in favor ol its retention for "specialized categories" of murders, was concerned with the permissive- ness in society which he felt its abolition would Indicate. History has shown that a so- ciety falls when it becomes ex- cessively permissive, he said. Mr. Little is the administrator of the Campbell Clinic. In referring to the cost of life imprisonment, Mr. Little felt that the public purse had uses other than for the "misunder- stood murderer." The questions raised dealt primarily with the effective- ness of capital punishment as a deterrent, and with the ethic; involved. Mr. O'Connell felt that the threat of death was not a de- terrent to 80 to 90 per cent of murderen, including those who murdered In anger, or in an uncontrolled state (drunken- or when the murderer desires his own death. Mr. Williams responded that It was not possible to count the number of potential victims saved when a murderer was put to death who might other- wise live to commit the crime again. The punishment should fit the crime, he said. Mr. Little said that he was in favor of capital punishment SUNSHINE RANCH The Norbridge Lions Club made another installment Monday on the it has pledged as a down payment on Ihe residence at Sunshine Ranch, near Coaldale.

Dr. Oshiro said, however, he doesn't feel the committee has had a significant Impact on ris- ing health costs. "I don't think It has had any effect because a very small number of billings are question- he said. "We certainly have questioned some and if the we recommend, to the Health Care Insurance Commission that payment be stopped." While supporting the idea of an Internal policing system, Dr. Oshiro said he Is concerned about another proposed amend- ment to have an auditor ex- amine the books of medical practitioners. "This is a totally new area to he said. "It would have to bt really examined in detail and all the implications consid- ered before we would support One of the implications is Uiat the commission would be em- powered to withhold payments from any doctor refusing to consent to the audit. million withheld LCC-city arena delayed The Alberta Colleges Com- mission has withheld approval of a million expenditure to finance the Lethbridge Com- munity College's share of a proposed arena. The city's share of the pro- ject would be about mil- lion. In withholding approval, the commission said it needed more information from both the col- lege and the city about the pro- posal. The matter is not ex- pected to be formally discuss- ed again until the commission's January meeting. However, the commission did give the college the go-ahead to negotiate for the purchase of about 26 acres of city-owned Land on which the arena would be located. Meanwhile, the results of a student survey to determine what should be In the facility should be ready Wednesday. Ben Brooks, head of the phys- ical education department at LCC, said some students are concerned that the arena pro- posal Is "being thrust on the college without much input about what should go in It." A questionnaire has been sent to about students through- out southern Alberta seeking their opinions on the matter. Many students have said they would prefer a football field rather than an ice facility. College officials attend meetings to reorganize gov't department Two senior administrators at the Lethbridge Community Col- lege are on the road for a week- long series of meetings. Dr. C. D. Stewart, president of LCC, and Dr. Keith Robin, director of continuing education were in Edmonton today, along with 30 other educators, to meet with government officials to discuss tlic reorganization of the department of advanced ed- ucation.

One commodity group proposed for livestock COCHRANE A single com- modity group for Uie livestock industry in Albsrla has been proposed to the members of the Western Stock Growers As- sociation. Neil Harvie, vice-president ol the association, said the pro- posed commodity group would be formed to the exclusion of all other livestock commodity groups in the province. It would replace groups such as the Western Stock Growers As- sociation, the Peace River Cat- tlemen's Association and the Southern Alberta Cattle Breed- ers Association. Mr. Harvie said individual breed associations, such as the Alberta Hereford Association and the Alberta Aberdeen- Angus Association would not be included because these groups are interested in pro- moting their own type of ani- mal. Mr. Harvie told 200 mem bers at a zone meeting here Monday that a single commix] ity group would give producers more control of the industry. The suggestion was made two years ago and an ad hoc committee was formed at that time to set guidelines for the proposed Alberta Cattlemen's Association. Mr. Harvie said the idea is to promote UK greatest partici- pation of producers in their own affairs. The proposed com- modity group would also have control of the check off fee levied against every animal sold. The check off fee amounts to 10 cents per animal and the funds are used to pro- mote organizations and to ad- vertise the commodity. Mr. Harvie said funding was an important part of the plan- ned association, adding that the level of Uie check off fee would be kept sensitive lo the current demands of the organi- zation. The planned group would change the structure of the Western Stock Growers Asso- ciation, the major livestock group In the province, reducing the number of zones to nine from 10. The number of catUe would be kept about equal in drawing up the boundaries of the nine zones. A similar climate and soil zone and a central urban cen- tre of major size would be sought for each zone. A director would be elected to each zone and four mem- would be added to allow live delegates from each zone to all meetings. The nine zone directors would become the operating board for the proposed asso- ciation. The same persons would also become members of the Alberta Cattle Commis- iion. "Delegates to the Canadian Cattlemen's Association now arc appointed by the cattle he said. "These delegates didn't carry a clear mandate from producers In Alberta. By ap- pointing members from the proposed group, this would not be the case." He said Unifann would con- tinue to co ordinate other commodity groups as they form in Aibcrta. Uniiarm could also be used as a data bank for use by all producers. Mr. Harvie visions the West- ern Stock Growers as a viable backup if the new group can't "make a go of it." He said where the Block growers was a group of like- minded livestock producers, the new group would be aimed at all farmers. He said this is important be- cause the majority of the cat- tle population in Alberta is on mixed farming operations north of Calgary. Old AMA premises to firm The law firm of Rice, Mac- Lean, Babki and Evans has purchased the former Alberta Motor Association premises at 3rd Avc. and 9th St. S., The Hertld has learned.
