Games End Siuiday 10 Medals At Stake TURIN, Italy (OP) The So- viet Union today has a chance to tie or overtake the United States in number of gold medals in the second-last day of the sixth World University Games. The U.S. still leads the med- als standings with 20 golds, mostly won in swimming. But the Soviet Union, well behind after the first week of competi- tion and now trailing by two golds only, has become a chal- Of the 10 gold medals at stake today three are considered in the range of the Soviet team. In the hop, skip and jump event Nikolai Dudkin and Viktoi Saneyev, both of the Soviet Union, were rated favorites. In the decathlon Nikolai Avf- lov, the Soviet leader of the standings after the first day of competition, was expected to strengthen his leadership in to- day's final events.

Could it be that what the various chambers of commerce in Alberta, British Columbia and Montana want is the same thing as what the Alberta Wilder- ness Association and similar other conservation groups want? The issue is the Kishinena-Akimina areas of southwestern Alberta and southeastern British Col- umbia. Everyone would like to see the entire area, adjoining Waterton Lakes National Park, included as a part of Waterton Park, or the British Columbia portion of the area established as a first class provincial park. About the only point in real contention is whether the road to Cameron Lake in Waterton should be extended into Akimina-Kishinena district. The point is that if either the federal govern' ment, or the government of British Columbia expends funds on making the region parkland, they will have to justify the expenditure by making the region ac- cessible. Prior to the recent cavalcade of vehicles that travelled over the region from Fernie, B.C. and various nearby centres in Montana, the Alberta Wilderness Association issued a statement opposing the cavalcade. The association also said the British Columbia portion is still untouched and should be saved as wilderness. It is obvious from this statement that no mem- ber of the association has been in that area in-recent year's. During a fishing trip to the area about one month ago, we found the exploration traffic so heavy, even on the weekend, that we wondered why traffic rights hadn't been installed. There's hardly a moun- tain in the entire Flathead area that hasn't a seis- mic or other exploration gouge of some kind. FROM WHAT WE SAW, the development of a road into the area would bring an element of control. Policing would be much easier. It's most doubtful, however, that Mr. Bennett and Company in British Columbia will ever part with that corner of B.C. until after every marketable foot of lumber has been logged out; every ounce of ore has been mined and every, gallon of oil and cubic foot of gas has been extracted. This is certainly one of those situations where members of chambers of commerce and members of conservation groups shouldn't be standing at arm's length clawing at each other. There's enough agreement on major points that the two factions should be able to sit down together and submit a joint brief on what they want for Akimina-Kishinena. This action should be taken soon, because soon there won't be much left to preserve except gar- bage and scars. THE REGION IS ONE of the last strongholds of the Dolly Varden and the native cutthroat trout. It is one of the last footholds of the grizzly bear. It is one of the last footholds of unpolluted water. It should be preserved and policed. The Going- to-the-Sun Highway in Glacier National Park in Montana cuts through some of the most rugged terrain of the park. That roadway has made the public much more aware of the beauty of wilderness and it has thus enhanced the preservation and perpetuity of that wilderness. An Akimina roadway could do the same for the southeastern corner of B.C. LOREN PLANTE writes that the Coleman Fish and Game Association is planning an active season. First meeting is set for Monday. Sept, 14, in the Lions Hall. A good turnout of members and prospective members is requested as there are numerous projects to be lined up. And the Southern Alberta Council of the Junior Forest Wardens has announced that H. W. Dorsh of Fort Macleod has won the half beef in the draw. H. S. Parker, also of Fort Macleod, won the half side of hog. B. Liddell of Coleman won the ?25 hamper. Vanoy On Waivers BROOKVILLE, N.Y.
