He called instead for estab- lishment of a wilderness park in the land adjoining the west side of Waterton Lakes Nation- al Park. Addressing 50 people at the Waterton Chamber of Com- merce meeting Wednesday, Mr. Russell said the chamber was to be congratulated for pushing tor formation of a park in the Kishinena Valley, but suggest- ed a road through the area would just be defeating the purpose of trying to save the land.

The University of Alberta, Edmonton, has asked the asso- ciation to prepare a brief on the feasibility of offering a course there, Dr. Lundg r e n said. This year more than 500 stu- dents applied to enter the Chir- opractic College of Canada, and only 117 students were accepted 41 of them with previous de- grees including PhDs. Dr. Anderson said chiroprac- tors are the only people in the medical field who never pre- scribe drugs to patients and where the x-ray machine con- stitutes almost the only instru- ment a doctor will use. Going to a chiropractor with an ailment usually costs less than visiting a general practi- tioner. A recent Florida Stale University study revealed that costs were only one-third as much. Dr. Anderson said a lot of t h e chiropractor's practice comes from patienLs whose reg- ular family doctors cannot cure constant aches and pains. The patients generally suffer from headaches, backa c h e s and intestinal and gastric pains. Before a chiropractor treats a patient, his medical and phys- ical background is "thoroughly researched." Frequently a few short visits can cure a patient, but other cases may require more exten- sive treatments, he said. Among a chiropractor's most important tools are his lingers, trained to seek out Ixxly mal- functions. Included in his medical hand- bag arc exercises, diets and possible vitamin treatments. Because of the nature of his work a chiroprador never uses a scalpel, Dr. Anderson said. If a cluropractor has a patient who requires surgery or other ncidilional treatment, the pa- tient is referred to a specialist. flux ot he said. "The land west of here is very fragile since it is the win- tering land for wild animals. But environment is also a big questinn here. "Keeping the environment as it is will be impossible with the flood of people a road through the area would create." He said if the people of Waterton think joining the road from the west side of the valley with Walerton Park will give added summer business life, they are wrong. "People won't be able to park anywhere and they will just drive on through." he said. "I think the park business people are handling all the business they can right now." He said if there is too much development in tlie last few re- maining areas of wilderness, such as the Kananaskis region, there is always some damage. "In the true democratic way ive have, we let first one and then other oil companies into the Kananaskis area and now there are roads and trails lead- ing all over the place." Mr. Russell said serenity and peace are what draws people [o places like Waterton and the Kishinena Valley, and if a road is allowed into the Kishinena Valley this drawing power will be lost for all time even if the area is formed into a park. He said one of his main com- plainls about the issue is the great amount of pressure for the road which is coming from south of the border. "I think the Americans feel they can relieve some of their own pressure of losing wilder- ness areas by using Canadian land." Mr Russell said any person in the chamber in Waterton who thinks of promoting growth and development as the organiza- tion's only role is wrong. The development and man- agement of recreation and ser- vices are the most important pails of the role of the park people and they owe it to the people who come here to set long-range programs which will ensure the quality of the envir- onment. An example of this, said Mr. Russell, is the push by the chamber for adequate sewage treatment for the lownsile. "This is a step in tlie right direction and it is one of the cheapest methods of saving a lake in the long run. "There has been more pro- j gress in this area in the last j five years than in many years j but it is sfiU only a start." lie said once the "people problems" arc solved, all other Dr. Anderson paid commpr-1 problems will be looked after. cialism has crept inlo the cur- rently recognized medical i profession. He charged that the drug business with its "out of this world prices" has forced doctors I" get away from drug- less research and therapy. The misconceptions formed about chiropractors result from a CMA propoganda campaign against the profession, he said, adding that the CMA is a "pol- itical group political mo- tives rather than medical mo- lives." The problem occurs wlicn n CMA statement is accepted hy the public as fart, when it is really "un-scientific." "Our profession is one of tlie oldest medical professions in tlw world, Dr. Anderson said. "The falhcr of medicine, Hip- pocrates, made frequent refer- ence to the chiropractic field." A federal Royal Commission on Medicine conducted a num- ber of years ngo, recommended that chiropr.ictory he incorpor- ated inlo university and col- lege medical programs. Hardieville students may be bused into Lethbridge By RICHARD BURKR Staff Writer Eight junior and senior high school students stood outside Hardieville School Wednesday- night to find out if they would be allowed on the County of Lethbridge school bus to Leth- bndge [his morning. They learned that at least until Sept 22, after the next meeting of the county schools committee, they would have to provide their own transporta- ticn Ib city schools. That decision came from a meeting of 35 HardieviUe resi- dents with representatives ol the committee and the superin- tendent of county schools. Some hope was provided for the students, however. Tlie com- mittee representatives agreed to discuss a resolution, passed by a majority of the residents, at the committee meeting Sept. 21. The resolution was made to allow all Hardieville students registered in LHhbridge schools to travel on the county bus. now 'going to Lethbridge, until 'June, 1972. The controversy arose from a policy established by the county schools committee which did provide for a bus to Lelh- bridge, but only for those stu- dents who were going to city schools at the time the policy was adopted. Since that time, some stu- dents have graduated to junior liigh school and they now want to go fo the city schools in- stead of VfK county-assigned school in Coaldale. Also, some sludents from out of the district have rowed to Hardieville and face the same situation they arc not allow- ed by the policy to use the county bus. In a Herald story Aug. 31, it was reported 1] students were allowed on the bus and eight were not. There is room on the bus for all 19. The residents argue (hat re- gardless of the committee's policy, the bus should not go inlo Lethbridge with vacant seals when students who re- quire the transportation are left at tlie bus stop in Hardit- villc. The committee treasurer ack- nowledged that transportation grants are not given on a per- pupil basis and that it would not cost the county any more money lo take the eight extra sltidenls. A petition containing names of 70 Hardieville resi- dents was presented to Hie com- millee saying they wanted their children lo go Co Lethbridge city schools beginning in the fall of 1972. A spokesman for tlie group said tlie city schools were pre- ferred because they were clos- er, making it possible for Uie students to participate in extra- j curricular activities.
