We will be giving consideration to what is being said about the wilder- ness bill." The minister said the gov- ernment will not be changing its policy to allow resource ex- ploration in all parts of the province as part of a detailed inventory of mineral wealth. All exploration would be strictly government by the province, with the people de- termining in what areas devel- opment of resources would be permitted. Exploration activities opened up areas of the province to fishermen and hunters and created access routes which made forest fires easier to fight. HALE OPTICAL COMPANY LTD.

External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp told a pi-ess con- ference that if and when Can- ada recognizes the Communist regime, she will support her ad- mission to (lie UN. External Affairs Minister Wil- liam McMahon of Australia sai in a speech to the General A scmbly that his country oppose entry of Peking under 11 present circumstances. The two men met Tuesday fo Intelligence Measures Overrated In Schools By JIM WILSON Herald Education Writer EDMONTON European education consultant J- R. Gass told Canadian education- ists Iiere Wednesday that the concept of "intelligence" was far-overrated as a measure of ability and social potential. "This is an incredibly nar- row view of what a person can Mr. Gass said. "ft missed the point that mo- tivation is probably the most Discussion Urged On Oil., Gas Needs CALGAHY (CP) Carefully reasoned discussion between Canada and tte United States is needed now on the countries' petroleum needs and supplies, an industry spokesman said here. Carl Nickle, publisher of the Oil Bulletin, said any statements that taint negotia- tions between the countries on natural gas and oil sales would be inapproprite. He declined to comment di- rectly on a speech delivered Wednesday In Portland for En- ergy Minister Joe Greene until he had seen the phrasing of the minister's remarks. Mr. Greene indicated Cana- dian natural gas flow to hun- gry American markets would increase only if the U.S. eased restrictions on Canadian oil. Mr. Nickle said oii and na- tural gas cannot be separated totally because they are found in essentially the same natural formations and marked trends in one always Effect the other. Health Costs In Alberta At Critical Stage-Henderson JASPER (CP) Health Minister James Henderson said Wednesday that health costs in Alberta have reached a critical stage and asked the medical profession to help con xol expenditures. Health costs will come "close ;o what the total provincia judget was seven years ie told a panel discussion spon sored by the Alberta Medica Association. 'ft is a critical period ant some decisions are to be made which will have far reaching implications." Mr. Henderson said there is lots of room for improvement Preliminary steps hiid been aken, such as a planning coun cil which will enlist the aid o medical personnel to determine overfall priorities. Dr. D. L. Kippen of Winnl leg, president of. the Canadian iledical Association, said he 'ears medical care insurance will push the medical profes- sion into a "political arena." Mr. Henderson said there is no way medical care insurance will not enter the politica arean because of: the system o: axation that is used to pay or it. "The question of registration s basically related to collect- ng premiums, which is basic- illy taxation." The health minister said the medical system will not work f it is planned by someone in an ivory tower. "It will only work if the rank and file have an opportunity to work in it. This has to be the ibjective of a successful work- Assault Charge Dismissed CALGARY (CP) A charge f assaulting a police officer, aid June 20, against David 'aitl, 16, of Cochrane was dis- ilssed by Magistrate Fred Thurgood who said the officer iad no authority to attempt an rrcst. Court was told Paul was ar- csted outside a Cochrane res- aurant after police were called localise of a disturbance in the uilding. The constable testified that while arresting Paul he was grazed by a swing from the outh alter which the youth vas chaged with assaulting a olice officer in the execution bis duty. Magistrate Tlmrgood said the fficer had no authority to ar- cst the youth on an offence hich could result only in a ummary conviction but the of- cer could hnve issued a sum- ions. Prosecutor Dan Abbot laler lid police hnve no power of Tost in such cases unless ioy see Uin offence 'Coin- litted ing relationship between the government and the profes- sion." JVDP Leader Urges Election Costs Control CALGARY (CP) Grant Notlcy, leader of the Alberta New Democratic Party, Wednesday called on the Social Credit government to appoint an all-party committee to draft legislation to control election expenses. "There is no reason legisla- tion could not be enacted be- fore the 1971 election. The com- mittee could study legislation in other provinces end should be able to have the legislation ready 'at th'e next session." He said his personal prefer- ence for Alberta would see campaign limits, reporting of donations and a provincial sub- sidy to candidates. "Unless controls are imple- mented, politics in this prov- ince will become a rich man's game." important factor in success but our school systems con tinue loo often lo use intelli gence measures in one form o another." However, lie said, in man cases this is explained by th attitudes of educationists (hem selves: "our systems today ar often doing a marvellous jo of never provivding any motiva- tion for their students. Mr. Gass said many innova lions and much education re search and local experimen tation are based on the wron goals. "We have become accustomei to seeking solutions tn our var ions problems through a analysis of our whole soci he said. "We try to find ways educa tion can be used to be part o the solutions for our problems "But if we based our anal; ses instead on the individua wilhm society we would fin the places we should reail makes changes." He pointed to youth, mar ried women and older people all of whom this attitude segn gates into seperate pockels b be treated as a group in som way by education, which h said missed the real problem whatever the individual pea- son wanls overcome. HOME RESPONSIBILITY Education also has a respon sibility to be in the forefron of social change, Mr. Gas said. "It should take the lead in applying the resources it has without waiting for the people to first tell it what to do." Education cannot be changec by engineers, or by "techno- crats" or special organiza lions: change must "spring from the individual th child, the teacher, the paren and individuals in the commu nity beyond." And all, he said, must be in some way brought together t establish how change can be made, and often what change are necessary- And educationists must tak Ihe initiative in change, Mr Gass told the CEA delegates. "After a decade in which the community has supplied sue heavy financial support for ec ucation's growth and partJ cularly since this support and growth are still continuing the need and responsibility for education leaders to develop ef ficiency and effectiveness is clear. "E d 11 c a tion managemem must become a major goal for the 1970s." Differ In UN an hour and discussed Cliina, the Middle East and Cambodia. Sharp is reported to have out- lined the advantages of Com- munist Chinese membership and McMahon is said to have reiterated Australia's opposi- tion. McMahon said in his speech: "It is sometimes claimed that the admission of Communist China to the UN will act as a catalyst in opening the way to better relations between China and that part of the interna. tional community from which Peking seems to have chosen to isolate itself. "We do not, at present, share this optimistic view." DECISION KNOWN The fact that Canada will change ils vote on China admis- sion after recognition had been known for almost a year. But Sharp's remarks on the matter were the first official an- nouncement here. Sharp refused to discuss the question of the Nationalist stronghold of Formosa, which would be ousted from the UN under the annual Peking mem- bersip resolution. He reiterated that Peking's demand that Canada recognize the Communists' alleged sover- eignty over Formosa cannot be considered by Canada in the light of its desire to recognize Bed China. Canada had a one-China pol- icy at home and at the UN. "The only question is who speaks for he said. He made his remarks at a press conference crowded by re- porters whose appetites had been whetted by reports current here that Canada is close to agreement in the Stockholm recognition talks with China. Sharp would only say that the talks are continuing and he could not predict when they will end. TELLS Of HEARING TATE SLAYING DETAILS A form- er member of the Charles Manson Barbara.
