He did not say how this could be accomplished. Before the vote, no word had been received from the federal government as to whether fed- eral funds would be made avail- able for the project, Mr. Kinisky, 43, a meteorol- ogist who operates his own company, Geoscience Hesearch Associates Ltd., tried to avoid the Oniplex issue during the campaign. He said Wednesday night that what he objected to was the "huge expenditure and the bad location." Industrial Airport, Mr. KM- sky's proposed location for Qmniplex, is about one mile north of the downtown srea and is surrounded by the city. There have been proposals to eliminate it and use the facili- ties at International Airport, south of the city. Mr. Bourassa said he Is deter- mined to carry his French priority program through to the bitter end. So far the government has used a peaceful "urging" policy but he warned "other alterna- tives" will be explored if there is no settlement. He would not elaborate other than to say he is awaiting rec- ommendations from the Gcn- dron Commission, which is in- quiring ino the use of French in the province, on how to promote greater use of French in Quebec industry. "Quebec will not permit a sit- uation where French Quebecers cannot work in their own lan- guage."

Speaker Mr. Speaker em- phasized that the individual is the most important of God's creations on this earth, and that the major function of any government is to bring the peo- ple the results which the peo- ple want in the management of their affairs. He said that while security is necessary to the individual, freedom with security is more essential, and that with the raw materials and man power with which Alberta is richly endowed, that which is physic- ally possible and desirable can and must be made financially possible. The course of government under Social Credit leadership over the years, he said, is in keeping with these principles, however misunderstood they might be by opposing factions of government. Mr. Speaker is a former high school teacher here. Interest of the younger set was indicated by the atten- dance as observers of proce- dure, of some 60 high school students from the W. K.

(AP) A downdraft that apparently sent a smaE plane diving into Lake Mead took the life of Theos Thompson, 52, top man in nuclear-weapons development and testing and a member of the U.S. Atomic Energy Com- mission. Thompson was killed along with two other passengers when the National Park Service plane crashed in 300 i'eet of water Wednesday. The pilot survived. An AEC spokesman said it ap- peared the plane, flying at 50 or 60 feet above the water, hit a down draft in the 60-mile-an- bour winds whipping over the lake. the atmosphere world indicates visory Committee on Pollution Control. "It would bring to a full slop the use ot all our resources." Mr. Henderson said "any- thing that disturbs nature can be classed as pollution" and if pollution was stopped com- pletely man might regress to the caveman stage. The minister said it is against the nature of man "not to chop wood to keep his house warm." Man could not be ex- pected to accept a lower stan- dard of living by saving his natural resources, such as coal, gas, oil and timber. LOCAL PROBLEM Pollution in the atmosphere is a local problem, said W. L. Faith, a consultant from San Marino, Calif. Dr. Faith said that testing in all over the that oxygen levels have remained the same for many years. But the levels of pollutants in the air rose to a high level near urban centres, particular- ly large ones. The atmosphere got overloaded to a point that was "undesirable, sometimes lethal." The problem was to avoid the overload by judicious dis- tribution of people, their cars, power plants and industry. Because people tended to cluster together, Dr. Faith said, the answer is to control waste materials at the source. "We need restraint guided by he said, sug- gesting that multiple use of re- sources may be the answer to pollution. Plan action in pollution monitoring; o EDMONTON (CP) Health Minister James Henderson of Alberta said Wednesday there will be increased activity in the field of pollution monitoring and policing once an environ- mental improvement depart- ment is established in Alberta, The department is expectec to be established during the next session of the legislature which opens Feb. 11. Mr, Henderson said in an in- terview the government is ready to meet the financial re- quirements for pollution contra in all municipalities and coun- ties in Alberta. But the minister said lega b o u n daries between govern- ments in the control of pollu- tion must be overcome before a co-ordinated effort in this field can be maintained.
