'T has become the fashion to write off the
party conferences as long-drawn-out rituals
in which the undercover intrigues and public
demagogy of party politics are annually displayed
to the public view. Yet the truth is that these
annual sessions definitely now provide the only
large forum to which the thousands of dedicated
party workers who labour unrewarded in the
constitepicies and who speak for grass-roots
democracy, still have access. Party activists who
go unheard during the rest of the year have this
one opportunity to say what they really think
to the politicians. Without the party conferences
citizen's only surviving right would be to express
a preference at election time for a government
managed by one of the two party machines.
In just over three weeks the Freedom
Party will be holding its convention at
Wesley. This is an important event, not
only because of the distinguished speak-
ers and the election of officers, but for
the reasons given above: so that the rank
and file membership will have a say in
preparing for the future government of

S"Governm nt must be visionary in nature and be
Sprepdaed to 'return to us' those things that only
national government can. give back.. clean rivers,
unpolluted air, and a free spirit in the inner man."


U.S. Secretary of. Stato for the Interior, 1969

The financing of park and i 'lcrealion
land acquisition was pe>thaps the big-
gest piece of unfinished .business I
found wiiliivg for me when I took over
as Secretary of the Interior. The Amer-
wica people have been terribly miisled
through tIhe legislative game of aulhou-
ixing a measure without appropri'ting
the funds to carry it out. A cil izen, hear-
ing the annouiinclent lhal such and-
such national park has bocen authorized,
believes it has thereby been acquired.
Often, only the concept ofl the park has
been authorized. No money has been
appropriated to pay for it.

The authorizing of parks without ap-
propriating funds has made many land
speculators rich. Once a park is au-
thorized,. (the value of suro'uunding
lands increases sharply over a period,
of years, reaching a poinl where they
are ten and sometimes fifty times as
expensive as when the park was ini-
tially authorized.

It was Abraham Lincoln's theory that
government should do only those
things that private enterprise cannot
do or cannot do as well. This does not
mean total involvement by government
in private enterprise, but it does mean
guidance and regulation. We have the
-greatest incentive system ever put to-
gether on earth, but free enterprise
allowed to run totally free will destroy
The thrust of government must
change so that we act positively instead
of reacting negatively. We must make
an inventory of all those things we own,
The task of putting together slich a
catalogue of assets is entirely possible
with the technology now available, in-

eluding computer systems, satellites,
and instant communication. Once the
' inventory 'is complete, judgments can
; be made about the highest and best use
of all those assets, These judgments
must be reached-with the help of public
hearings to provide a balance between
the primary needs of a local area and
the requirements of the nation ais a
Resources must be developed and
used; homes and office buildings must
be built. But it is inexcusable to take
those actions without considering the
impact they have on the heart and soul
and spirit of the
The question is: Do we care enough
about our land to see that they are done
in that way?
The problem of getting a clean land
aso involves the argument about how
best to cut the timber in our forests.
This is of great concern to me because
much of the nation's lumber is taken
from public property. I feel strongly
that, the emphasis 4siould be on "selec-
tive cut ting," in which a tree is cut only.
after it has reached proper maturity.
Selectivity does not always mean the
same thing; it depends on the forest
and the kinds of trees you are talking
about. Certain trees, the Douglas fir for
instance, are subject to "blowdown"
if they are left unsurrounded by other
This fact is used by the lumber in-
dustry to argue in favor of "clearcut-
ting," a procedure by which, with the
help of enormous machinery, a crew of
men will move into a forest and level
everything in a given area. But the real
argument for clearcutting is that it is
cheaper to cut that way and take a
chance on the forest's restoration.

Undoubtedly there are situations in
which the clearcutting of trees is justi-
tied, but there are many cases ihi which
ir;reprcsents an abuse of a iesource.
We should take a much harder look at
selective cutting, even if it does cost a
bit more. Does it make sense to cut a
three-year-old tree, a thirty-year-old
tree, and a 300-year-old tree all at the
same time just because they are stand-
ing next to each other? Is the highest
and best use of a tree to make it into
a telephone pole? It is interesting that
clearcutting is practiced a great deal
more by private firms when they use
public land than when they use their
own private property.

In the area of the environment, im-
mediate survival is at stake for certain
wild creatures and plant lile. Man's
ultimate survival is at stake as he real-
izes that the earth is a close -system.
We cannot create new resources; we
.can only,alter them. They cannot be
destroyed, but they can be wasted and
irre, rievably lost. Environmrintal re-
sponsibility is a way of life, an atti-
tude toward our habitat, an evyr-
present awareness of the interrelation-
ship and interdependence of all living
things on this earth.

The individual, who has appeared. to
be becoming more and more impotent
in ;a vast society, is now discovering
that he alone is the key to change, to
survival, to the improvement of life
for all humanity. To accoinplish a
worldwide change of values, so that our
resources are not squandered and our
surroundings destroyed, challenges the
imagination of all the people on earth.

There had been previous discussions
And delegates had made decisions,

Then alto lumber trucks went the loads

I do genuinely congratulate the Canadian philanthophists for taking
over the Save .the Children Fund activities in this region, and for trying
to .encourage qur people to play their. part, and I congratulate also our
local representative Miss Dorothy Jules. Nevertheless I fully agree that
as a matter of historical record mention should have been made of the. -
"robt" referred *to.
Furthermore, I ampositive that many people will surely be only too
glad to know the far-off origin of "Save the Children Fund", which really
started in the year 1919, after the First World War, by Miss Eglantine
Jebb; who- (being moved by the pitiful condition of Russidn and other
destitute children) started this- Organization... and with a few other
notables as Chairman and Patrons, who subscribed heavy sums to keep up
the association (which soon spread all over the world) pushed it forward
in Britain and many other countries.
Most grateful recognition should be extended to Lady Hailes, who -
in close contact with British benefactors -established a Branch in the
West Indies, then a Federal Unit. Our present more loosely knit West
Indies is in close contact with and grateful relationship with CANADA.
The names of those noble and generous pioneers should by no means be
obliterated orI overlooked, in -due recognition of their magnanimous deeds
towards humanity.. MAION PT,
