Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 18, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Air pollution standards wrong WASHINGTON (AP) Wil- liam D. Ruckelshaus, adminis- trator of the U.S. Environmen- tal Protection Agency, asked Congress today to ease its 1976 requirement for control of nitro- gen oxide emissions from au- tomobiles. Ruckelshaus also said his agency will reclassify all but two air quaL'y regions pre- viously believed to require gen- eral controls on nitrogen oxides. The two exceptions are Los Canada's best selling Vodka at the popular price Angsles and Chicago where ni- trogen oxides, a constituent of smog, are still considered a serious problem. Testifying before a Senate pollution subcommittee headed by Senator Edmund S. Muskie (Dem. Ruckelshaus said scientific measurements of ni- trogen oxide, on which both the auto standards and the general air quality standards had been based, turned out to b3 wrong. In most areas, Ruckelshaus said, "it is clear that major cut- backs in nitrogen oxides emis- sions clearly are not necessary at this time and will not be nec- essary during the next several years." He said it is not possible to set an exact new level of nitro- gen oxide control. Under the 1970 Clean Air Act amendments, automobile emis- sions of carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons had to be reduced SO par cent below their 1970 lev- els in the 1975-model cars, but Ruckelsbaus granted a one-year extension and set interim stand- ards last Wednesday. The law requires a 90-per-cent reduction n'lrogen oxide in 1977 cars, but Ruckelshaus said this reduction "is, in my judg- ment, not necessary." He said Congress should not fix a new standard for automo- bile nitrogen oxide emissions but should leave it up to his agency to set the standard. "We have drafted an amend- ment which would accomplish this purpose and request that it be considered by the com- mittee." Ruckelshaus said. i -Wednesday April 18, 1973 THE LETHRIDGE HERALD 23 Clenches fist at UN Lebanon's UN ambassador, Edouard Giorra, clenches his fists during UN Security Council debate on Israeli attacks into Lebanon against Palestinian guerrillas. Ghorra said the U.S. veto last fall of a resolution condemning Israel for retalitory raids against guerrillas had "emboldened" Israel to take larger actions.

NORTH "HOUSE OF RADIAIS" PHONE 327-3181 Canadian universities ex- pect enrolment figures next season to remain level or in some cases to decrease. A Cross-Canada Survey by The Canadian Press shows that this is causing problems for university administrators. In some instances the univer- sities face a financial squeeze. Walter Gage, president of the University of British Col- umbia, Vancouver, said his in- stitution faces a milliin deficit next season. Enrol- ment readied a record students in 1970-71 but dropped to this season and is expected to drop by an- other 300 or 400 next season. "The money is simply not going to be available to do all the things that our faculty and administrators believe we should be he said. "We are taking a hard look at all our activities to see where expenditures can be re- duced." The smaller University of Victoria, with students for 1972-73, hopes to hold its level of student enrolment uext season but President H. E. Farqubar estimates it will face a shortage of almost million and predicts cutbacks. Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, B.C., expects a modest increase in its current enrolment of and attrib- utes it to revamped entrance requirements. Dennis Roberts, information director, said the decline in enrolment at other universi- ties "may be attributed to the general social trend to turn away from the formal educa- tion system, to the economic situation and to the fact that many students are more in- terested i n career-oriented programs." University President D r. Kenneth Strand said the budget will increase 12 per cent next year, but even then it "will be very tight indeed." The B.C. government has allocated million to ba shared by the three universi- ties next year, a 3.25-per-cent increase. In Edmonton the University of Alberta expects next year's enrolment to drop slightly from students. The school used to get a 12-per- cent increase in applications every year, but they have dropped recently. Enrolment reached students hi 1971-72. Assisiant registrar A. L. Darling said there will be "room for all comers" in most faculties. But some, in- cluding dental hygiene, den- tislry, medicine and phar- macy, will be restricted. At the University of Saskat- chewan in Regina student fees were raised last year by j from to depending on the faculty and the year of the course. A miUion residence- building which also has some faculty offices opened in Janu- ary. K can house 405 students and is expected to be full next fall. Rents tegin at S56 a month for a shared room. Youth plan motion lost OTTAWA (CP) An attempt to have the million Oppor- tunities for Youth (OFY) pro- gram put under parliamentary control was rebuffed Tuesday by the Commons committee on assistance to the arts. A motion by Joe Clark (PC- Rocky Mountain) called upon the committee to recommend to the Commons that a statute be passed at the earliest opportun- ity. But MPs turned down the pro- posal as committee chairman Ralph Stewart broke an 8-8 tie vote. Cyril Symes Ste. voted with the Liberals on the question. There are eight Liberals, eight Conservatives, two New Democrats and one Social Credit MP on the committee. Mr. Clark argued that it was difficult to get information on OFY projects under the present system, which has the program directly responsible to the office of the secretary of state. The program provides sup- port for job-creating projects for students and other young people. The motion was not a criti- cism of the OFY program, Mr. Clark said. Rather, it removed the possibility of OFY being de- stroyed by the whims of a min- ister. Mr. Clark said the Company of Young Canadians (CYC) had Book banned LODl (AP) A state prose- cutor ordered Italy-wide con- fiscation today of the book Sex and Confession, based on tape-recorded fake confessions to Roman Catholic priests. The prosecutor, Francesco Novello, said the book "contains obscene phrases onder the pretext of being a documentary, descrip- tion offensive to morals, and auto-erotic passages." been "emasculated" by a Com- mons committee upon the direc- tion of a minister. By putting OFY under control of Parliament, legislative sanc- tion and security could be given the program and there would be assurance the fate of the CYC would not befall OFY, he added. He ward Grafftey Brome-Missisquoi) said with OFY under a statute there would be better consultation on projects. He added that the move would remove suspicions some people might have that proiects are approved through political patronage. Other Conservatives said it was wrong for the minister to bs given millicn in public funds for disposal as he saw fit. Objectives and criteria must be established for the program, they said. Liberal MPs on the com- ra'.ttee replied that putting the program under parliamentary control would hamper its flexi- bility and operations. Mr. Symes said there would be no quicker way to destroy the innovative aspects of the program than to have 264 politi- cians scrutinizing OFY. He asked Secretary of State Hugh Faulkner if the govern- ment would consider developing OFY into a year-round program ar.d whether more consideration would be given to young people who are not students. Mir. Faulkner said these pos- sibilities are being examined. Prescription Eyeglasses Sunglasses Repairs AM the Latest Styles From the Leaders in Eyewear Fashion OPTICAL PRESCRIPTION CO.
