DARCYRICKARDi Keeping their eyes on the ball Fall is a time to sharpen your skates, a time to throw a football or play soccer on an open field. At the Wilson Hutterite Colony, southeast of Lethbridge, Danusleut boys play a kind of field hockey during school recess. Vulcan man holding taxes in Hutterite school protest VULCAN (Staff) J. S. Dixon of Brant says the Huttentes are expanding their colonies at such a rapid rate that their school system will soon be the only school system left in the province. To back up his stand, he is with-holdmg payment of his 1973 municipal taxes to the County of Vulcan. The amount due is covering municipal taxes on sections of land and lots in the hamlet of Brant, about 20 miles northwest of here Mr Dixon says "We are objecting to the manner in which these taxes are being used. In other words, we are trying to take steps within the law of the land, to protest." He says the Hutterite colonies are operating "segregated public schools." Mr Dixon says the school act covers separate schools and their operation but does not allow Hutterites to operate their own public schools. Mr. Dixon says "every other religious group is follow- ing the school act, every other group but the Hutterites." He says Hutterite children should have the same privileges as his own children have in education. "We have an education system and they should be .allowed to have advantage to it, the same as my own he says "I am following the school act. I am living up to the legislation of the province, so why shouldn't He says he is tried of paying tax money to a council that is "supporting that type of thing." He says by paying taxes to the county council he is colluding with them in a system that denies Hutterite children a good education. Mr Dixon says Hutterite children are being allowed to leave school when they are 15. 'We can't see how we are going to stay in this country beside people who are not following the rules of the land." The tax money has been deposited in trust for the County of Vulcan at the Treasury Branch. In a letter to the County of Vulcan, with a copy to the minister of education, Mr. Dixon says "Since religious privileges accorded to those using separate schools are dependent on legislative authority, as is the use of tax dollars to operate such separate schools, then it should follow that the religious privileges accorded to the Hutterite brethren in the form of their own public schools should also be dependent on legislative authority In other news on Hutterite education The advisory committee on communal property said recently the quality of education "vanes tremendously" from colony to colony "It may be that the present curriculum is not advanced enough to proide the young people with the basic knowledge they will need to cone with unforeseen technological advances and management problems." Earlier Education Minister Lou Hyndman said that concern about Hutterite children leaving school after Grade 8 has lessened He said that after Grade 8 they receive a technical education that may match or surpass any high school vocational training available elsewhere. He also said there are "no instant solutions. Any attempt at fast, forced integration is not workable, not desirable Hutterites are part of the multi-cultural heritage of Canada and that applies to Indians or anyone else." A lot of people have been drinking your whisky. The 8 people in this photograph can stop production at Tradition's distillery. And not even the President can budge them. It is no joke. There are 3 teams of people at Tradition's distillery and they have almost legendary power. The power of taste. With it they can stop cases of whisky from ever reaching you. You see, we have spent a lot of time and money getting Tradition to taste the way it does Smooth, mellow. As we say "so Canadian you can taste But making a great whisky once, is no great feat. Most Canadian distilleries make very good whisky. The problem is making great whisky, day after day. Bottle after bottle. Sip after sip. Pity the single blender. At scnemey we think it s inhuman to give one man the responsibility of deciding on the maintenance of whisky, day after day. The food he eats', his personality, his habits all contnoute in some ways to his perception of taste. And a certain taste is not something you can tap with a hammer You can't see taste. You can't feel taste. You can only taste taste. And this is why Scheniey has developed the 3-team method of whisky tasting. The First Team, the Second Team and the This h.n paiscd the ti-sti ol the Sihrnli-j Tradition is ciuntntepd to IMITJ the true Tradition t.i Tasted appruM-d, signed b> these people Canadian SHienlcj Distilleries Ud No other Canadian whisky is signed as Not one drop of Scheniey Tradition can reach you until it has passed the critical palates of our taste teams. Not a drop. It does not matter if a production man howls about schedules. It does not matter if an execu- tive says through clenched teeth, "it's close If it isn't passed, it isn't Tradition. Pictured here are some of our First Team members as of March 15th, 1973. Each member has earned his position by recording consis- tently high averages in taste tests. But none is secure In the wings, members of the Second Team wait. And be- hind them, a team of rookies practice: TheTiaming Team. All of this effort, is based on the fact that we believe Tradition is a great-tasting whisky. And we'd like to keep it that way. Behind the label of each bottle of Scheniey "Tradition, you'll find the signatures of the two teams, who approved that particular blend of whisky. It means you're about to enjoy Tradition Not something close to it. We think you'll enjoy Scheniey Tradition. Probably the most thoroughly taste-tested whisky in the country.
