Inner peace organizer claims self-understanding VERA ROBERTS People can find peace and understanding within themselves, according to a lecturer for a spiritual move- ment to be outlined to Lethbridge residents at two lectures this week. The times are spiritually hungry, says Vera Roberts, a regional officer of the Inner Peace Movement. "Everybody's looking for answers." People, can turn to inner guidance, and have a better understanding of themselves and the world, says Vera. She says she wants to help people discover jife is simple. They can grow by thinking positively. Vera, who grew up in California, says her parents were originally Mexican, and passed on feelings of second- class citizenship to her. "By the time they got to me, they must have been feelings of third-class she adds. Now, she says, she has con- fidence in herself and can be herself without feeling inferior. But many other peo- ple in the world still have her old feeling of inferiority, she adds. Vera has been in the Inner Peace Movement four years and the movement is sponsor- ing her lecture tour. Sue Scott of Edmonton, the movement's Alberta public relations chairman, says she used to feel life was all right, but she had no great expec- tations of it. She said she was troubled by fear and indecision. Now she has inner security, and confidence that her Time Air plans schedule change Time Air's schedule will change com- pletely Oct. 27 when it begins using a Fairchild F-27 on the Lethbridge Ed- monton route, airline president Stubb Ross said today. The same day Time will inaugurate its Edmonton Grande Prairie service. The F-27's flights from here to Ed- monton will be Lethbridge Calgary Ed- monton flights, he said. Flights with Time's de Havilland Twin Otter are Lethbridge Calgary Red Deer Ed- monton flights. Lethbridge residents will still have eight flights a day to choose from, three with the F-27 and five with the Twin Otter. "What it means, as far as the people of Lethbridge are concerned, is better ser- vice on flights to Edmonton and said Mr. Ross. There will be more seating capacity in a pressurized plane, and a 25-minute time saving on flights to Edmonton. Before, Lethbridge passengers had to switch to Pacific Western Airlines at Calgary if they wanted to travel non stop to Edmonton, he said. The airline president also said he has heard a five per cent air fare tax would take effect Dec. 1, but aircraft weighing less than pounds will be exempt. This will mean the fare to Calgary from Lethbridge will be by Twin Otter and by F-27, he said. Fares to Edmonton will be by Twin Otter and by F-27. Time will begin competing directly with CP Air on the Grande Prairie Edmonton service and with PWA on the Edmonton Calgary service. Time will use a Twin Otter on the Grande Prairie Edmonton service, but will land at the downtown airport while CP Air uses the Edmonton International Air- port, he said.

CLARESHOLM A seed of thought was planted in the minds of 20 Southern Alber- tans here Tuesday by officials seeking public participation in formulating policy for land use in Alberta. Residents are expected to think about -the future of Alberta, and the use to which land will be put in coming years. Nick Agnew, operation land use program supervisor for the Rural Education and Development Association, ex- plained a plan to draw a policy on use of Alberta's square miles of land. Performing the job of in- forming the public of pending public hearings by the Alberta Land Use Forum via a series of 80 public participation meetings, REDA personnel OPEN HOUSE IMMANUEL CHRISTIAN SCHOOL 802-6IH Ave. North, Lethbridge Phone 328-4783 Friday, Oct. 18th to p.m. Parents, are you interested in a school where child- ren not only read the Bible, but use it as a basis for all their studies? Then the "Immanuel Christian School" is for you. Come and view the facilities plus special class pres- entations in the grades. Enjoy a Family Dinner In the Gym Between the Hours of to 7 p.m. Be Sure to Visit Us Friday, Oct 18 at "Immanuel Christian" are telling people what government expects of them in establishing a policy on land use. A consulting firm has already compiled a series of publications delving into ma- jor areas of land use concern. The information meetings are designed to let the public know the main terms of reference dealt the consulting firm. They will allow the public to add to the terms of reference and to react to the information gathered to date. Officials hope the public will take an opportunity to in- fluence the decisions which will affect it, said Mr. Agnew. When people are involved in formulating proposals they gain a better understanding of what the proposals, mean to the community and can con- tribute to a broader base of support for the plan. SMILEY'S PLUMBING REHODCUJNa PliMM 32S-2179 MIKE HANZEL For Every Mr 371-7th Street South REDA will hold a second series of meetings throughout Alberta to gather these briefs, help the public with questions and answers and then submit the briefs to the land use forum for inclusion in the final report to the Alberta cabinet.

TEDNEWBY Uc. 010213-41 KEITH ERDMANN UC. 012119-4M decisions are right for her, says Sue. Vera says the movement is very spiritual, but it's not a religion. It has no theology or dogma, she says, and it doesn't conflict with her own Catholic upbringing. Sue says many of the people in the movement are members of churches, and seem to get more out of the IPM, and more out of their churches. The movement's lectures deal with such topics as extra- sensory perception which it says everyone has finding the meaning of dreams, see- ing the magnetic aura around a person and the balance between the various forces in life. Everyone perceives thoughts in four different ways, says Vera, though one way predominates in each person. IPM lectures will be given tonight and Thursday at p.m. in the Maverick Room at the El Rancho Motor Hotel. The cost is Park decisions may come slowly in Waterton planning scheme By MICHAEL ROGERS Herald Staff Writer It may be a long time before a Waterton Parks' master plan is drawn up and decisions are made on development and preservation of natural resources, judging from varied opinions expressed last night at a meeting dealing with the future of the park. Almost 100 people attended the two-hour meeting at the Lethbridge Public Library, sponsored by the Lethbridge Natural History Society, and the University of Lethbridge biological science department. The speakers were Mike Murtha, master planner, and Tony Bull, resource manage- ment planner for Parks Canada. Mr. Murtha told the meeting there are two plans under way, one for the park and one for the townsite. The two will eventually be put together. But one person claimed mat development and conservation contradict one another. Both Mr. Murtha and Mr. Bull explained how far their studies of the problems facing the future of the park have progressed. Mr. Bull said studies have been made on the need to preserve vegetation, soils, birds, mammals and areas of scientific and archaeological value. Most of these seem to be concentrated along the eastern slope of the park. The same area appears to be the most suitable for more campgrounds. This will cause conflicts, he predicted. When the discussion reach- ed the area of more or less campgrounds, and restricted visitation or the number of people allowed to hike into the wilderness, Mr. Murtha pointed out, "more and more people are coming to the park each year." Asked one man, "you've done studies on the birds and bees and animals and plants, why not do an impact study on the people and what they are doing to the At another point one woman said, "from a business point of view" the percentage of visitors to the park has dropped considerably in the last three to four years. But that brought out another Pair remanded on theft charge question. "Just what do peo- ple come to the park for? Is it where the action is? Do we need a dance hall in the town- one woman asked. Mr. Murtha replied, "What would you say if the lounges, bars and the liquor store were taken He drew un- animous applause from the people. But he said obviously there are many problems to look at and nothing is going to be solv- ed immediately. He said there will be several more meetings held and more studies made. "Hopefully we will have two or three alternatives to choose from in the end." The varied. opinions con- tinued throughout the meeting and, on the subject of the three alternatives and the' eventual master plan, one man said: "If you respond to the supply and demand concept, you may destroy the natural resources that you are trying to save." When Mr. Murtha and Mr. Bull told the meeting it has been suggested for some time that campgrounds be built out- side the park and private enterprise should be en- couraged to building these campgrounds, there were nods of agreement. But Mr. Murtha pointed out there is some kind of a psy- chological thing about people wanting to be inside the park. "So what do you he asked. Two Lethbridge men charg- ed with the Friday theft of a mini-motor home from the lot of P and M Hoot Enterprises, 2018 2nd Ave. S., were remanded in provincial court Tuesday to Oct. 23 for election and plea.
