Copernicus said the sun. rather than the earth, was the centre of the universe. He said the earth revolved around the sun this was a direct challenge to the philosophy and reiigious thought ot the age The discovery expanded man's thinking, says Dr. Ceorge Xieber. geography professor who played a part in bringing the display, spon- sored by the Alberta branch oi the Canadian Polish Congress, to this city His doscoverv turned man's thoughts outward, says Dr. Xieber. and provided a new direction ol thought lor man Science up to this time had been dead The exhibition, sponsored bv the local Copernicus Quincentenary Committee, has been on display at the provincial museum in Ed- monton and the Glenbovv Museum in Calgary. The photographs depict segments ol the astronomer's hie from his birth in the Polish town of Torun and bap- tism in an old. Gothic shape cathedral. They include pic- tures ol Krakow, the political and cultural capital ol Poland during Copernicus' time. Dr. Xieber savs the display will remain at the university until the end ol the week and if interest warrants it will re- main next week. The exhibition is located in the geography area of the U of L academic-residence building and is open to the public Irom noon to fi p.m. Set up corporation Tax-saving plan outlined Philosophies of change given to new teachers Rural property owners with less than 20 acres would pay lower municipal taxes it they would transfer the ownership ol the land to a corporation t h e v c o ii 1 d s e t up. a Lethbridge lawver said Tuesday Steve Denecky, who is also the president ol the County ol Lethbridge Ratepayers Association, said that since corporations are considered, in law as people, the com- pany can make its principal income Irom the property. I'nder the provincial Municipal Taxation Act. a holding less than 20 acres can be classed as a farm only if the principal income ol the owner comes Irom the land. Farmland is assessed at lower rates than small land holdings, and buildings, including a house, are tax- exempt Land classed as a small holding is assessed at 31 per cent ol market vali'e. while buildings are assessed at 45 per cent Local float travelled miles this summer The float that represented the citv and the Lethbridge and District Exhibition Association travelled 1.000 miles and appeared in nine Super Special!

EXCEPT LEGAL HOLIDAYS Mr. Denecky said that while it costs about to set Up a company, he feels it would be to the economic advantage of persons owning small holdings to file incorporation papers. He explained that there really is not such a classifica- tion under the taxation act as "small holdings." Property not falling into any other category is always assessed at the :il and 45 percent rates, he said Owners ol more than 20 acres cannot use the incor- poration technique to have then property classed as a tatm he said I'nder the taxation act. parcels greater than 20 acres can be classed as a farm only it the land produces a 'livelihood" for the owner. "Livelihood" is defined as She sum ot the old-age pension and supplement, which now total about a year Land owners who make less than Irom their proper- ty have to pay taxes at the assessment rate tor "small holdings Mr Denecky thinks that for property owners with less t han 20 acres, setting up a cor- poration is a good idea, but savs people shouldn't have to go to that extent to "get fair taxation "In my personal opinion, if a man has 15 acres and is liv- ing on it. he should be paying more than the farmer, but less than he is now." The Alberta Teachers Association is the only organized body that has been involved with changes in education over a lengthy period of time, a well-known Lethbridge educator and former president of the ATA said Tuesday. Joe Lakie. speaking at the induction ceremony for new ATA members in the city's school systems, said school board trustees in are now beginning to initiate changes in the province's schools, but for many years the ATA was alone in the struggle to im- prove the educational system. "You can't just rely on your laurels if you don't do something to improve educa- tion then you'll go back to the day I started teaching school." he told the new teachers. He also commented on the role of a teacher in the educational system. There are other "things that are as equally important" as the basic educational skills such as reading, adding and subtracting, he suggested. A teacher has to love students and show that feeling ol love to the students, to respect the students as in- dividuals, to be polite, to give each student a chance for success, to be tolerant in the classroom and to instil pride in the student, he said. The students should have pride in themselves and realize that they are citizens who have responsibility in the home, community, country and world, he said. Mr Lakie, a former prin- cipal at Fleetwood-Bawden School, said il he was to hire a teacher today he wouldn't ask the teacher for qualifications, experience or his or her specialty Instead he would ask how the teacher would treat the students and what respon- sibility she or he feels toward assisting the students with their learning process. During the evenings' ceremonies. 25 new teachers were called to take the ATA teaching oath and received an ATA membership certificate. The teachers are either new to the teaching profession or teaching in Alberta lor the first time. Further development of the Assumption School building is required to alleviate inade- quate facilities in the school, a report to be presented to the separate school board tonight says According to the report, the principal has adapted the school nurses' room to his use and his secretary works about 40 vards from the room. Physical education equipment is stored in the main foyer, on the gym stage and in a small storage room and the physical education instructor has no shower Two partially completed basement rooms now house the science room and the library. The rooms have no floor covering or water ser- vices, the report points out. Assumption school has an enrolment of 318 students and a capacity lor 360 students which is a utilization rate of 83 per cent. The utilization average lor all schools in the separate school system is 78 per cent The trustees will also be asked to approve policy that would make attendance com- pulsory at the Catholic- Central High School. The principal and staff of Catholic Centra] will also be requesting permission to withhold school credits lor in- excusable absence. In another report, the trustees will be told that the separate school system's lack ol facilities for storage of gas- oline-powered equipment and petroleum products "has rais- ed considerable complaint Irom the lire inspectors dur- ing annual inspections." The gasoline powered equipment is used to maintain the grounds ol the schools in the separate school system. The report recommends that the trustees take measures to remove all gasoline-powered equipment and gasoline Irom the schools. The report suggests three alternatives to the present storage system: -a central storage area could be built and equipment could be delivered to the schools as it is needed: school system could discontinue ownership of equipment for the maintenance of school grounds and contract the work out. sheds could be Country residences take land out of agriculture Building surge continues, million mark passed Prime agricultural land cannot be taken out of produc- tion, a part-time member of the provincial government's land-use forum says. Ralph Brown, also the presi- dent of the Alberta Associa- tion of Municipal Districts and Counties, said country residences are taking good land in the province out of agriculture.

The September total was weii over the total oi 000 worth of construction per- mits issued last September and the yearly total is running more than million ahead of the same period in 1972. The world is hungry, and Albertans have an obligation to save their agricultural land for farming purposes, Mr. Brown said. The forum was set up by the provincial government this summer as an initial step toward developing land-use legislation. The three-man group will spend the next two years studying land-use patterns and receiving sub- missions from individuals and organizations around the province. He said that the greatest development problems are caused by urban sprawl by growth of cities onto irreplaceable farm land. Mr. Brown said he rejects the philosophy of limiting, or stopping growth, suggesting instead that subdivisions be allowed only on land of marginal value. "Are we going to aiiow every Tom.
