Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 4, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta II TH( ItTHMIDGt HHALD TutfJoy, January f U of L residence has apartment atmosphere University residence bedroom study room By RON CALDWELL Staff Writer On-campus residences at the University o" Lethbridge enable students to live in the main- stream of education, says the university's housing director, Dwight Jensen. "Living in a residence Is an experience that every student should have. "They get to know a lot of 'other kids more quickly, but they are also living close to what they are here for edu- The residences have definite apartment atmosphere. There are both single and Double units, which provide stu- dents with a reasonable degree of privacy. There is also a common lounge area and two bathrooms in eadi wlte of rooms. Gen- erally, then are five rooms to each suite. Each room is completely fur- Dished with a single bed, mov- able closet and study desk. "Everything in the room is white and everything is mov- able so the individual student can decorate it to his t said Mr. Jensen. The apartment-house concept is borne out by the lack of stringent rules for students liv- ing in residence. There is no ban on mixed vis- iting and no set visiting hours. liquor is permitted in the rooms. "We couldn't do it any other said Mr. Jensen. "There is no way we could enforce such rules even if we wanted to have them. "Part of a university educa- tion is learning values and re- sponsibility, so we have to give them responsibility and hope that they can handle it." Mr. Jensen said if the ac- tions of one student infringe on Gundlock raps farm marketing hill By GREG McINTYRE Staff Writer Lethbridge Conservative MP Deane Gundlock today blasted1 the national farm marketing bill as "useless" because of amendments that have water- ed down its effectiveness. Mr. Gundlock, in his Leth- bridge constituency during the House of Commons Christmas recess, said the bill was a poor Jdea in the first place, since authority for resources such as farm products rests with pro- vincial governments. "I really don't see what the devil they (Liberal Govern- ment) are talking about when they talk about supply manage- ment he said. The bill is scheduled for con- sideration Thursday by the Senate. Mr. Guudlock said the Con- i v e Opposition fought amendments to the bill that have resulted in limitations to exclude all farm products, ex- cept eggs and poultry. Marketing boards for other products can only be set up by producers with the eo opera- tion of provincial governments. Asked what effect the bill could have in the Lethbridge area, the MP replied: "I really don't think it will amount to much. "It's watered down -with amendments to the point where producers in co-operation with the province will have to make the moves." Mr. Gundlock said his plans for the near future are indefi- nite but will likely include a circle tour of the constituency and some fishing. He expected that he may have to return to Ottawa next week to form part of a Com- mons quorum to Join senators in giving formal assent to the marketing bill. The 57 year old Progressive Conservative MP predicted Prime Minister Trudeau will call a general election but said a date for local Tory nominating convention has not been set. He said he and" most other federal -Alberta politicians plan to attend the Alberta convention in Edmonton Jan. 28 to 30. Alberta is similar to Ontario in that there is "no real difference" between the provincial and federal Conservative organizations, he said. Two juve in TivO juveniles are in Letfi-bridge city police custody in connection with the vandalism of two city schools.

Mr. Jensen said financially speaking, the residences are a losing proposition. "If they were lull every day all year, the university would receive about which probably wouldn't even meet the mortgage payments." As to future expansion of residences, Mr. Jensen said the university'! enrolment would have to almost double before there would be a need for more accommodations. "We have enough space for an enrolment of to students. "But in the future we may have to look at lome kind of accommodation for married students." Mr. Jensen said one of tht big pluses for residence living is that it makes "one more un- derstanding of himself, other people and their "It is an extension of tin classroom as a learning experi- ence, and It Is something (hit every university student ibould experience for at least a year." Poultry industry should stabilize with farm marketing council approval By RICK SWIHAHT Stiff Writer Stability of the Canadian poultry indtttry is the key to Che passage of federal Bill C-176, according to Ralph Ef- fler, manager of Lilydale Poul- try Sales. C-176 allows the establish- ment of a national farm prod- ucts marketing council which can recommend to Hie federal government the establishment of national marketing agencies for individual commodity groups. The bill received passage by the House of Commons the last day of 1971 and it is expected the Senate will give its assent some tune this week. The poultry industry Is the only commodity group in the agricultural industry to be af- fected by the entire bill as it is DOW WMttal. The rest of the agricultural community had sought exemp- tion from the umbrella-type leg- islation which includes supply management of all commo- dities. "Everybody in the poultry In- dustry is relieved by the pas- gage of the bill." said Mr. Ef- fler. The manger of Alberta's lar- gest handler and processor of poultry products, he said the bill will co-ordinate all poultry production in all provinces. He looks for a controlled pro- duction in all areas which will help to do away with mterpro- viudal trade restrictions. Alberta bad imposed inter- provincial trade restrictions aimed at stopping the dumping of poultry products on the Al- berta mrket, but provincial ag- riculture minister Dr. Hugh Homer refused to continue the act. Poultry products have been floating on the Alberta market for some tune and this bill should solve ttus problem. Mr. Effler said the controlled production in all areas will lead to controlled marketing be- Stock growers support hill The national farm products marketing bill has passed its greatest stumbling block in the House of Commons and at the same time gained support of the Western Stock Growers' Association. Bill C-178 would allow estab- lishment of a national farm products marketing council which can recommend to the federal government the estab- lishment of national marketing agencies for individual com- modity groups after a producer plebiscite. Milk River rancher Tom Gil- ehrist president of the WSGA said the late amendments to the bill appear to have effec- tively removed cattle, calves, beef aid veal from most of the provisions. Amendments the cattle in- dustry had been seeking which were passed include the pleb- iscite question and a limiting power for agencies set up so that only those established for poultry and eggs will have powers of supply management In effect said Mr. Gilchrist slock growers got what most farm organizations have been asking for a bill which can be used to rationalize the im- mediate and pressing problems In the marketing of chickens and eggs. He said other commodity groups that want to use the legislation can do so by voting in favor of an agency. Once the producers of any commodity group vote for an agency the federal government will produce the powers neces- sary for its enactment. Mr. Gilchrist said in com- modity groups such as the beef cattle segment where pro- ducers have indicated opposi- tion to the supply-management clause sufficient safeguards have been written in. He indicated no marketing agency can be "foisted" on pro- ducers because of regional or political pressures. Bill Nicol area represtnta- Federal Agriculture Minister Bud Olson will attend the fourth in a series of 13 south Alberta public meetings at the Taber Legion Hall starting at 7 o'clock this evening. A scheduled visit to the Masinasin Junior High School at 2 p.m. and at the Milk Biver Catholic Church at 8 p.m. Fri- SUNRISE RANCH tive for Unlfarm, said the poul- try industry will apply to the national council for a national marketing agency as soon as possible. He said the poultry industry has plans all drawn up and it ii r e a d y for the implementa- tion of the bill. Mr. Nicol said southern Al- berta will not likely be affect- ed too heavily at tint because of the great diversification of the industries. "It will take a longer time for the full scope of southern Alberta's agriculture to be af- fected by the bill" he said. He suggested the cattle In- dustry would likely be the last agricultural commodity group to be affected. cause all poultry producers processors will be, ooeraticg un- der the same rules. "There shouldn't be my dumping because thert won't be any unnecessary surpluses in any production area under the new he said. He said the bill could help Alberta producers because sales could be increised In the Kootenay area in British Colum- bia. Prices are a little lower and feed costs are lest here, which give Alberta producers i Mt of an advantage he said. Any area which la accessible by good transportation Is ready market for pro- ducen because the competition aspect i there, he said. The B.C. market in the Koot- enay region has been Tilled by Alberta for years, and this is not considered a dumping ac- tion. He said Hw bffl fa aimed it stabilizing die industry and this should make it easier for pro- ducers to get bank loans for business expansion. The poultry producen will now be good risks because they will be able to pay their loans off.
