Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 20, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 46 LETHBRIDGE November 20, 1974 Wildlife reserve set up COCHRANE. Alta. (CP) After spending most of their lives tramping through Europe and Asia and sailing around the world a few times, Miles and Beryl Smeeton decided to They set up a wildlife reserve for endangered species 10 miles west of Calgary. Mr. Smeeton. 68. says the campaign to help endangered species got off to a false start when the couple started to care for an abandoned baby moose. Shortly afterward. they acquired another moose Peterkin, which had become caught in a fence. The moose became household pets until Peterkin's antlers grew so big he couldn't get through the door Shortly after, the animal was shot through the fence in a "senseless killing that couldn't have been an acci- dent Mr. Smeeton, author of seven books, says he is not against hunting. But he is against some of the modern techniques of hunting, such as INSTALLATION HUMIDIFIERS n 1709-2nd Ave. South Phone 328-5973 using telescopic sights, helicopters and snowmobiles. "Hunters should kill with compassion, and put themselves on as level terms as they can with the animal they are hunting." He says sometimes people come to his reserve, see the animals and then no longer wish to hunt. If they do hunt, they do so "with humility." The reserve now has eight kit foxes, trumpeter swans, a pet peacock and moose. The reserve permits animals to roam free and usually the public is not admitted. The main cost of the Smeeton wildlife reserve was in erecting the fence, said Mrs. Smeeton, 69. They try to raise animals natural to the general area so most can forage for themselves. So far most of the money for the reserve has come from Mr. Smeeton's seven books, and from lecture tours. Plant may close This is a partial view of the Chrysler Corp.

Telephone 328-9231 Colleges urged to play role in community WINNIPEG (CP) Community college instructor: were told here to abandon missionary approaches to educa tion by researching the needs of the community they serve. Shaf Nader, a member of the national committee on co operative arrangements in the United States, told about 50 delegates to College Canada 74 that a concerted effort is re- quired to make the college an important part of the com- munity. "Colleges should do market research in the community. The college is not just a service learning station in the com- munity; but it must also be part of the community." Mr. Nader envisions the college as a means for promoting understanding toward local problems, equipping citizens with information to allow social criticism, and preparing people to be actively functional members of society. Mr. Nader also encouraged teachers to broaden their own formal activities in the community. "Teaching goes on in very informal ways, not just in the college setting. Why can't you have a say on the programm- ng that goes on television? You have the expertise." Mr. Nader's remarks were part of discussions in the .hree day conference. CALLING DOWN ON JOB Earlier, an official of a large aluminum corporation told delegates community colleges are not providing graduates with the intellectual skills and attitudes required by the jusiness community. Duncan Campbell said there is a shortage of capable peo- ile to fill job vacancies requiring intellectual skills. "Post secondary institutions are training people to fill pecific jobs. We're looking for people to add to the creative effort, who can redefine their jobs constantly "We can always find those with technical skills to meet (reduction goals. But we're short of those with intellectual kills." Mr. Campbell also urged delegates to consider changing he traditional emphasis of the post secondary approach to ducation. "The new generation will not accept traditional values, ut the evidence is less clear that it has the capacity to think ts way clearly through problems than the previous eneration." Scurvy threatens miners JOHANNESBURG (Reu- ter) Scurvy, once a scourge of sailors, now is threatening the health of thousands of black workers in South Africa's mines. About half a million Africans toil deep un- derground in the country's gold, coal and other mines, and a recent survey has shown that, after a period, more than 90 per cent show signs of vitamin C deficiency. Symptoms include wound healing and. in some severe cases, manifestation of scurvy, a report by the South African Medical Research Council said The British navy solved problem of scurvy by giving its sailors lime juice. The in- stitute hopes to find the cor- rect dosage of vitamin C conentrate to be included in the diet of all underground workers Greyhound See everything you want to see close up! In friendly luxury.
