University president Dr, Max Wyrnan said the university's solicitor will be asked whether such a move could even be "passed and enforced." The university's general fac- ulties council could pass the proposal along to the board of governors but legal opinion would still be needed on the possibility of lawsuits, he said. Dr. Wyman said the growing Influx of Hong Kong students Into Alberta was called to the attention of the federal and provincial governments by the university about two years ago. NO POLICY There had been no policy di- rection from the provincial government and it Is doubtful the federal government would Intervene "on a matter of this the university president said. The general faculties council decided to table an engineering faculty proposal to limit the number of persons on student visas to 20 per cent of the total undergraduate enrolment from the previous year and to re- strict the number from any one country to seven per cent of that total. The engineering faculty has said their proposal is specific- ally directed against H o ng Kong students. They comprise 7.9 per cent of the faculty's total. The University's Chinese Stu- dents Association, b o wever, Monday night called on the uni- versity community and the public to "raise their voices" against proposed limits on Hong Kong students. The association said In a brief to the general faculties council that "an undesirable situation does exist" but added that a decision should not be made unilaterally by the engi- neering faculty. There is little justification for such foreign student quotas without further research on the educational needs of Alberta, the rest of Canada and other countries, the association said. With the exception of the Uni- versity of British Columbia, no other Canadian university has had to resort to a formal quota to maintain equilibrium be- tween Canadian and foreign students, the brief said. The universities of Toronto, and Manitoba, as well McGill, and Queen's all hava "very high proportions of Hong Kong students." hut have suc- ceeded In maintaining a bal ance without formal quotas, it said. The brief says the British Colony of Hong Kong has great- ly increased its number of uni- versity places from 850 in 1S61 to in 1971 but there are still thousands of students who have to immigrate to other countries to get post-secondary education, DEFENDS PROPOSAL Defending the proposal, Dr. George Ford, faculty dean, said Alberta students are being "displaced" by the Hong Kong immigrants. "I recognize lhat there may be overtones of discrimination in our proposal but there discrimination on both sides. Many of the Hong Kong sl dents already have several years of engineering training when they arrive here and Ca- nadian students feel "a dirty trick has been played on them" because their Chinese counter- parts are "overprepared."

A group of ministers in the former provincial government Monday criticized Whitelaw's policy for dealing with the so- called "no-go" areas of London- ury dismissals cost govt. CALGARY (CP) One' hundred and eighty two per- sons turned out Monday for jury duly in Alberta Supreme Court tint all were and paid each without getting inside a courtroom. They were dismissed when the status of all four cases scheduled to be beard starting Monday before a judge and jury was changed. In two cases, the defendants did not appear and in the other the accused persons changed their minds and decid- ed to face trial before a judge alone. Mr. Justice W. R. Sinclair said the system of calling in enough persons to make a se- lection for all trials scheduled is generally economical, de- spite Monday's payment of for nothing. The Alberta Supremo Court Is still able to process serious cases more economically than in provinces where the accused does not have the option of choosing between a trial by judge alone or judge and jury, he said. RAPS SITUATION Crown prosecutor A. G. Park called it a "deplorable sit- citing inconveniences to prospective jurors and their families, lost man hours and wasted money. In an interview, Mr. Justice Sinclair said what concerned him about the "mixup" was that potential jurors came to the court at expense to them- selves and to the people of Al- berta. Ite said he would write Chief Justice J. V. H. Milvain of the trial division to see if there Is some way when a panel has been summonsed that the accused per son's presence could also be ensured. British rail runs back to normal LONDON (AP) British rail- ways returned to normal today after more than two weeks of chaos. Rebel engineers in the south- ern region, the line serving Ian- don's biggest commuter area, finally obeyed a court order to return to normal working condi' lions.

The way now Is open for re- sumption of pay negotiations be- tween the rail unions represent- ing workers and the state railway board. Housing act changes aid to low-income families TORONTO (CP) The Globe and Mail says proposed changes in the National Housing Act would provide loans for up to 40 years at seven-per-cent interest rates and federal subsidies to help low-income families buy adequate housing. The n e w s p a p e r says the amendments, promised in Feb- ruary's throne speech, were out- lined in a confidential memo sent April 11 by Central Mort- gage and Housing 'Corp. to pro- vincial governments. The amendments have not been tabled in lha House of Commons, The Globe and Mail says, but if followed will pro- vide for federal rehabilitation grants and loans of up to per housing unit if federal funds are matched by the provinces.

Following a meeting with of- ficials of the Construction La- wr Relations Association and the B.C. and Yukon Building and Construction Trades Coun- cil, Mr. Chabot said: 'It doesn't look good It looks like are going to have shutdown." The CLRA, which bargains 800 contractors, has served 72-hour lockout notice on 18 construction unions. The lock- out could come Thursday at the earliest. A similar lockout in 1970 shut down the industry three months.

FIRE BUGGY Guerrillas set off a bomb in a baby carriage outside Northern Ireland's main telephone ex- change late Monday night and kept engineers and rescue work- ers who flocked to the scena pinned down with sniper fire for two hours. The explosion dug a crater three feet deep and 10 f across in the road, damaged two banks and slightly wounded two British soldiers and a tele- phone engineer with flying glass and debris. Troops reported lilt- ting one sniper. There was a little damage to the telephone equipment and normal service continued. vSixty telephone operators and other personnel were trapped in the exchange building as British troops cleared the area. The raid came only a few hours after Catholics of the Civil Rights Association ap- pealed lo the IRA to call off its campaign of assassination and bombing to save the province from being plunged into full- scale civil war.
