Of 55 prisoners detained this past weekend by city police, "most were arrested on liquor, or related, of- S. Sgt. Bill Brummitt said. To date this year, city po- lice have handled 746 liquor offences. "We feel it's too many, and many businessmen in the downtown area are under- standably annoyed by the number of drunks hanging around their he said. Under the Liquor Control Act, police have the power to take an intoxicated person in- to custody, and release him, or her, without charge the fol- lowing morning. S. Sgt. Brummitt said that police will now be using this action with considerably less frequency than in the past, as it is being abused. Liquor outlets have been generally co-operative, he said, but four hotels have re- ceived liquor board warnings for selling to minors, and two other hotels have been call- ed before liquor board hear- ings on the same offence. By clamping down on the problem can probably be solved, he said. Clark criticizes post-secondary education plan EDMpNTON (CP) The dissolution of the universities and colleges commissions is a "piecemeal" approach to reorganization of post-second- ary education, Robert Clark, a former education minister, argued Monday. Mr. Clark bury) said the government should estabb'sh a special leg- islative committee to look into the whole field rather than dissolve the commis- sions now and transfer their authority to the department of advanced education. Nevertheless, the legisla- ture gave second reading approval in principle to the two bills that authorize the change. Jim Foster, advanced educa- tion minister, said that once the first phase of reorganiza- tion is complete, the govern- ment will embark on an ex- tensive review, with public participation, of both the Uni- versities Act and Colleges Act. It would examine the role of government as it af- fects post-secondary educa- tional institutions and exam- ine the internal organization of the institutions. The assumption of the com- mission's powers by the de- partment doesn't mean that universities will have to sub- mit to budget approval, Mr. Foster said. The government wants to work out longer-term financ- ing formulas for post-second- ary education so the institu- tions have a committment for funding. But it doesn't mean the de- partment won't be doing an analysis of how the money is spent to see if it could be al- located better, the minister said- There could also be a com- mittee on university affairs to operate as a policy forum between the institutions and the government. This could "stand as a powerful body" to make recommendations to the government, even though it wouldn't have the decision-making authority of the commissions. Mr. Clark said it would be a "mistake" to make one change in university and col- lege operations without the benefit of an over-all review. "We have had the buffer (between the government and the universities) of the uni- versities commission for a number of years, and now we're being asked to remove it and give the minister ap- proval for an advisory com- mittee on university affairs whose terms of reference have not been set." Grant Notley, New Demo- cratic Party leader, said that if the province plans a broad range of public discussions on post secondary education, there is no rush to abolish the universities and colleges commissions. "A commission with some legislative status is not only in the interest of the institu- tions, but in the interests of the government he said. Mr. Notley said the move is at best, At worst, "It could lead to a less than satisfactory univer- sity system in the province-" Driver hits parked cars No serious urjuriss have been reported following a car accident Monday in the 1400 block 13th St. S- The accident occ u rred when a car driven by Reid Garth Ledgerwpod, 23. of Taber, was in collision with two parked cars belong- ing to Dorothy B.

MLA protests proposed pension plan exemption Herald Legislature Bureau EDMONTON Southern Albertans would object to Hutterites or otiier religious groups being exempt from payments to the Canada Pen- sion Plan, Ray Speaker (SC- Little Bow) said Monday. Provincial Treasurer Gor- don Miniely told the legisla- ture the provincial govern- .ment has not beea consulted about a "minor amendment" proposed by federal Health Minister Marc Lalonde to ex- empt groups from pension plan payments and benefits. However, the federal min- ister is expected to seek the opinions of provincial minis- ters on the change at a meet- ing this month. In an interview Mr. Speak- er said some of his constitu- ents have objected to specific groups being exempted from the pension plan. Individuals as well as groups should be exempted, or the pension plan should be truly universal, said the Soc- red MLA. Because they do not collect the pension, Hutterites have asked to be exempt. Towns should stop fighting over industry sites-Horner EDMONTON (CP) Agri- culture Minister Hugh Horn- er urged Alberta towns Mon- day to "get off theii fannies" and slop fighting among each other over where new indus- trial plants should go. Instead, he told the legisla- ture, towns should do their best to develop plants in their own communities "without being a dog in the manger about where a particular plant goes Dr. Horner was replying to Grant Notley, New Democrat- ic Party leader in Alberta, who asked what formal con- sultation took place with farm organizations in the Peace River Country prior to the announcement that a rape- seed crushing plant will be built in Sexsmitu. The Sexsmith plant is a pri- vate endeavor .and the gov- ernment's only connection with it was assisting the for- mation of a co-operative with a 30-per-cent interest. The Town of High Prairie, 60 miles east of Sexsmith, had been also seeking a rape- seed crushing plant and com- plained when Sexsmitb was chosen. Dr. Horner said the govern- ment had expressed no pref- erence about the location of the plant. CUFF BLACK, Certified Dental Mechanic BLACK DENTAL tAEfi MEDICAL DENTAL BIDO.
