Recreation Tax Idea Opposed EDMONTON (CP) A pro- posal that the province impose a tax to provide more recre- ation facilities in Alberta has received a cool response from Youth Minister Gordon Taylor. The proposal was one of sev- eral made by delegates at a three-day conference on rec- reation called by the youth minister. "People generally think they are overtaxed Mr. Tay- lor told the 500 "There should be an assess- ment and use of present facili- ties before we ask you to pay for additional facilities." Other proposals ranged from requests for more research into the types of recreation needed in Alberta to suggestions the government "stabilize the popu- lation" and "reconstruct the educational system." None of the proposals were formally voted on by the dele- gates. Delegates also suggested a new recreation department be established in addition to a cul- tural affairs department. Mr. Taylor, later in an inter- view, said tlie most important suggestion was that school fa- cilities should be used more efficiently for recreation pur- poses of the entire community. He said the government will discuss the situation soon with all school boards, adding that changes in the School Act this year gives authority to school boards to allow their recrea- tional facilities to be used by community groups after regular school hours. The youth minister said the conference was "just the be- ginning in the task of improv- ing recreation facilities and programs in Alberta. Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the World Book Encyclopeuia to Sherwin Dueck, age 11, of Janow, Manitoba, Canada, for his question: Does an insect have a brain? Every insect has a trigger- sharp brain, though it is not the right kind of brain for think- ing. The bitsy creature does not have to solve problems do. His actions and reactions are governed by built-in in- structions inherited from his ancestors. His fairy-like body is a living miracle and his tiny brain is designed to guide him through his pre-arranged life at top speed. In all animals, the brain is the headquarters of the nervous system. It receives multitudes of messages from the sense organs, sifts them and flashes back instructions for suitable action. The branching nerves carry all this data to and fro in the form of electrical im- raises. A brain, even the bitsy irain of a tiny insect, is a com- rfex biochemical switchboard, ft is his vital control centre and it is well-protected. An insect has no internal skeleton so his brain is not en- cased in a bony skull. How- ever, he is encased Jn chitin, a tough shielding that serves his small body better than bones. His brain' is 'shielded in a snug helmet of chitin. It is a mass of soft nerve cells linked to ganglia and nerves that branch through his body. A ganglion is a bundle of nerves, somewhat like a trunk line. The average insect has two main preaching swatter. Sensory im- pulses flash this news to her Mtsy brain which orders a fast take-off, up and away. This sudden take-off is a highly complex manoeuver, in- volving the co-ordinated action of many muscles. It is possible because her simplified brain is programmed to -trigger a set reaction to the situation. The fly has no choke. Her survival depends on instant and accur- ate obedience. CARDS OF THANKS ELLIOTT r- A sincere thanks to all those who have shown us kindness and sympathy on the loss of our brother, Jim. and Florence Elliott, Rob and Lillian Woodfr.rd. 3720 GREENO I wish to thank my doctors, nurses, nurses' aides and all the staff of the Lethbridge Municipal Hospital, for the wonderful care I re- ceived, and all the kindness ex- tended me, for the -many weeks I was hospitalized. Also many thanks to my wonderful friends and relatives for the beautiful flowers, lovely cards, nice gifts and their many visits, and well wishes. Thank you all very much. Your kindness will al- ways be remembered. Greeno. 8716 BLi' I wish to express my heartfelt appreciation and grati- tude to each and all who made "open held at Lomond October 11, such a wonderful success. "A day never to be forgotten." To those who plan- ned and worked so untiringly to furnish and serve those who came, to each who came, sent messages, flowers, cards and gifts, I wish they each shared the lasting joy it meant to me and I know Bus happiness is shared by all my family. To Marge, Ernie and family a special thank you as it meant so much to have you with us. My husband and family unite with me in wishing God's great- est blessing upon each and every one of you. Lillie Root Ely, Clares- holm. 8713 Neiv Syrian Ruler Cracking Down The senses of insects are very different from ours and there are surprising variations in different species. This calls for variations in their brains and sensory nervous systems. Probably no two species are exactly alike. But basically, the brains of all insects work on the same simplified trigger system.

Canadians Face Trial LAS TOGAS, Nev. (AP) Two Canadians have been bound over for trial here on charges of possessing stolen credit cards. Charges against them related to the alleged beating of a third Canadian are held in abeyance while he re- covers in a hospital. Barry Normey, 18, and David Waltz, 23, both of Edmonton, were arraigned Thursday on the credit-card charge and ordered to trial on a date not yet set. They are in custody in county jail, where they were also booked for investigation, of kid- napping and assault in connec- tion with the beating of Howart Tom. Tom, 22, of Regina, was in fair condition Friday at South- em Nevada Memorial Hospital. Sheriff's deputies say the three men were travelling hi the United States together. Normey told deputies he lived at 10624 95th St., Edmonton. Waltz said only that he lived in Edmonton, listing no street ad- dress.

Assad forced Dr. Nouroddin Atassi to resign as president and premier of Syria Saturday, and today Maj.-Ge n. Salah Jadid, Marxist leader of the Baath party, was reported to have fled the country, possibly to northern Lebanon. Baghdad radio reported later that Atassi's resignation had been accepted by Assad and :the new party leadership." Atassi has gone to his native city of Horns, in central Syria, and is under house arrest, the broadcast added. It also said Syrian troops, tanks and ar- mored cars were laying siege of Saika camps near the village of Harasta, 10 miles from Damas' cus. OPPOSED INVASION Assad's coup is believed to have resulted from the Syrian invasion of Jordan during the civil war there last month. Assad opposed the intervention and refused to give it air cover. Assad is 40 a staunch Arab nationalist, and has worked for closer co-operation among the Arab countries in the fight against Israel. running lengthwise along his body, somewhat similar to the human spinal, column. Streams of nerve impulses flash to his brain. Some are prompted by internal needs, such as hunger, others relay external news via his sense or- gans. An insect's eyes never close and the sensory nerves on his antennae never rest. Chances are, he has small s sory pegs and bristles on his mouth parts. As a rule, he can detect the tiniest traces of .odor and taste, touch and often vi- brations. Some insects have hearing organs in the abdomen, "eet or legs.
