"We now are coming to a meeting of the minds because each group realizes they can stay in Ihedr own group and go broke." Mr. Jarvis said the organiza- tion of Uaifarm, established last March after a merger of the Alberta Farmers Union and the Alberta Federation of Agricul- ture, "impresses me." Unifann presents more than Alberta farmers and also has commodity groups repre- sented in the organization. "This is a new idea and a fresh approach and we m Mon- tana are looking at this." Mr. Jarvis said one of the farmer's biggest problems in the United States is that the fed- eral agriculture department has always represented the consu- mer and not the producer. "It was set up to assure an abundant supply of food at low prices." He said more liaison is need- ed between U.S. and Canadian farmers because the problems of agriculture, specifically high- er production costs and less rev- enue from production, are the same in both countries. Mr. Jarvis said a new farm program is being introduced In his country which, in effect, will mean more agriculture produc- tion but lower prices for that production. 'We can't stand much more of this." He said agriculture must get! into a position where it has strong bargaining power and "with each new program, we've been worse off." Consumers in the United States are being "hoodwinked" by large grocery retail chains and many do not realize they are paying a major part of their food dollar toward convenience foods and packaging. Mr. Jarvis was speaking dur- ing the last day of Unifarm's four-day annual meeting. Universities overloaded financially MONTREAL (CP) "Fool- I ball for the alumni, parking i for the staff and sex for the students" are among the de- mands that are crushing uni- versities, Dr. Robert Bell, McGill University principal, said here. He told an open forum at a Montreal synagogue that "the universities are overloaded, h u m a n 1 y and and just can't meet every- one's expectations. "Universities are expected, almost as a matter of course nowadays, to lead the fight against pollution of the envi- ronment, to set up day-care centres for all the clu'ldren who may need them, !o oper- ate medical, dental and legal clinics where they are needed, to operate flic museums, to provide free library service, to draft the laws and staff the inquiries for governments, to provide unlimited free window glass for high-spirited rioters to break, and to prevent the police from preventing the ri- oters from breaking it. "All this on lop of the tradi- tional university duties of providing football for tlic al- umni, parking for the staff and sex for the students." Students, parents and em- ployers should stop regarding the university as "some kind of universal agency that can do anything."
