Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 23, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Lethbridge University full-time enrolment expected to spurt Preliminary estimates of full time student enrolment for 1974-75 show an increase at the University of Lethbridge that is substantially more than the provincial average for univer- sities. Statistics released by the department of ad- vanced education also show a projected increase in full time enrolment at the Lethbridge Community College that is sub- stantially below the provincial average for community colleges. The college's full-time enrolment projec- tion for this school year is less than a two per cent growth over the 944 full-time students it enrolled in 1973-74. The projected enrolment at the University of Lethbridge for this school year is about 12 per cent greater than its enrol- ment in 1973-74. The projected full-time enrolment for Alberta's six colleges shows an average 6.7 per cent growth and an average growth of 4.9 per cent in the universities. The agricultural and vocational colleges in the provinces anticipate an average enrol- ment growth of 4.2 per cent and the technical institutes expect a 0 5 per cent increase this year. The preliminary estimates do not take into account part-time, continuing education and non-credit students. Full-time enrolment at the Universities of Alberta, Calgary and Lethbridge is expected to reach students this year and the colleges anticipate a total enrolment of students.

Constable Frank McDonald, president of the Calgary Police Association, said "there could be some kind of national reaction amongst the police community" if two con- victed killers of an RCMP of- ficer in Cloverdale, B C. are not hanged Jan. 28. The pair was convicted by a B.C. Supreme Court and sentenced to die for the murder of the RCMP officer last March. "I've been told the B C. forces plan to walk out if two people don't hang in B.C." said Const. McDonald "Police are responsible peo- ple but there's no way we can accept anything less than capital punishment for any murder of anyone." Const. McDonald criticized federal Solicitor General Warren Allmand for his abolitionist viewpoints and said "Mr. Ailmand has im- plied that as long as he sits in office no one will be hanged in Canada." "I would remind Mr. All- mand that he is there at the choice of the people and the people can remove him." The police meeting follows Friday's two-hour shoot-out 'with ex convict Philipp Gagnon, 26, who had a history of mental disorder and had been released from prison less than six months ago.

What could have been a terrible disaster only days before Christmas, an ac- cident near Grassy Lake Sun- day morning involving two buses, three cars and a semi trailer truck, resulted in one minor injury About 74 people, passengers in the buses and cars were taken in from the storm by residents of Grassy Lake. Only one of the 74 people was injured. Judith Lund- quist, of Medicine Hat, was taken to Taber General Hospital with bruised ribs She %vas released from hospital today in South may benefit An estimated Alber- tans will become eligible for Canada pension retirement payments as a result of legislation introduced by federal Health and Welfare Minister Marc Lalonde and passed by the current session of Parliament Previously, persons age 65 to 69 had their Canada Pen- sion Plan retirement pension reduced or eliminated if they had earnings exceeding amounts stipulated by the legislation Effective Jan. 1. 1975, however, those people who have been contributing to the plan and who have reach- ed the age of 65 will be entitl- ed to draw retirement benefits whetner or not they continue to work and receive wages According to the district manager of Canada Pension Plan's Lethbridge office, J C L Bouchard, the amended legislation is particularly significant for those Albertans who choose to work after reaching age 65 rather than going into full retirement Mr Bouchard said that under the former legislation, many contributors had been ineligi- ble to receive benefits between the ages of 65 to 69 because they had remained in employment The same, of course, held true for the self employed person who continued to operate his or her business beyond age 65 rather than go- ing into full retirement. Mr. Bouchard emphasized that it is important for anyone in the 65 to 69 age category wishing to apply for Canada Pension Plan benefits to make applica- tion as soon as possible, as benefits become payable the month following the date of application. Some individuals may prefer to continue contributing to the plan after age 65 in order to increase their pension benefits and this option is still available In addition to removing the earnings test for retirement pensions, the amendments to the plan will establish equal treatment for male and female contributors and their beneficiaries; establish a new formula for determining the CPP earning ceiling and provide a greater opportunity for people at lower income levels to participate in the plan The changes in survivors and disability benefits will also come into effect Jan. 1, 1975.
