Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 10, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, January 10, 1975 Long appointed arts, science dean A member of the University of Lethbridge faculty since its founding in 1967 will take on a three year appointment as dean of arts and science July 1. J. Anthony Long, political science department chair- man, will replace F. Q. Quo whose three year term ex- pires in June. Dr. Long, 35, received his doctorate at the University of Missouri and taught at both the University of Wyoming and Missouri before joining the U of L faculty. "We have a good faculty and I hope to do what I can so it can be utilized to its poten- he said in an interview this week. Dr. Long specializes in the. research of Canadian provin- cial politics and is the co author of a forthcoming text- book on Canadian political science. Dean Quo describes his first two and a half years in office as a crisis period for the un- iversity. He feels the university sur- vived the crisis caused by dropping student enrolments and financial restrictions placed on it by the province without a loss in the quality of education. The students and faculty stood together when needed to make the major decisions that helped the university survive its predicament, he recalls. "We were prepared to sacrifice everything else but the academic respectability of all programs." Dean Quo is "still not 100 per cent" sure about the future of the department of PHARMACY FACTS from O.

The workshop is designed to help the han- dicapped become accustomed to working in an industrial setting and hopefully obtain out- side employment, he said. The city has decided to grant the society two acres of serviced land witli the provision provincial government approval is granted for a new building. because of a pressing need for more space, however, the society has had to ask the city to service part of the land immediately. The Kinsmen Club of Lethbridge has offered to build a temporary facility on the land if the city services the lot, Mr. Ferris said. At a meeting of council Dec. 30 aldermen turned aside the request until government approval is granted. Mr. Ferris says this is unfair because if the plans for increasing workshop space are not approved soon "the society will lose a lot of money." He declined to give a specific es- timate of the loss. The society does not know when a govern- ment decision will be made but an initial re- quest has already been turned down. That request was for a 110 space rehabilita- tion centre but this was revised lo 65 spaces following the government's rejection. The government is now reviewing the re- quest of the IB space centre which will cost the province more than Mr. Ferris said. The society has collected about in cash and commitments from the community to go toward the construction of the new building, he added. "This is a community project, not by just a couple of people and I don't think it's right for a half dozen people (council) to hold up something that is a community effort. "If we could get council'to give us this land we could get rehabilitation he said. "But if our number of clients keeps increas- ing there won't be any room to put them." The existing workshop, which will remain after the new building is constructed, is used by about 65 handicapped people who work on more than 10 industrial contracts. The contracts range from constructing irrigation parts to making ribbons and pillows. The society wants to move its larger contracts to the proposed temporary building to free space within the existing workshop, Mr. Ferris said. ANTHONY LONG arts and science at the U of L even though it has proven it produces a high quality of education by the success its graduates have obtained while furthering their education at another institution. His concern is with the at- titude the government has adopted toward a liberal arts education. "To what extent will the government be able to unders- tand the fundamental yet in- visible service provided (to society) by arts and he questioned. The government has been setting up a grant structure in this province that provides un- iversities with funds that are designated for a particular project or course. The grants tend to respond more to the immediate situa- tion while ignoring long range planning, he explained. Since arts and science provides a general education that does not immediately provide "a tangible Dean Quo questions whether general education may suffer while specialized areas of post secondary education prosper. He feels arts and science may suffer most because it has no one to defend its cause. Dr. Quo will begin a one year sabbatical July 1 "to meet the-research commit- ment I have made" and have not been able to meet in the last three years.

The seal office is at 415 Canada Trust Building. The Alberta Tuberculosis and Respiratory Disease Associa- tion will sponsor Education Week on Smoking Jan. 11 to 18.

Notley demands inquiry into fertilizer prices Alberta farmers are being hit by fertilizer prices double those of only 18 months ago. The situation has prompted NDP Leader Grant Notley to demand a full scale "non partisan" inquiry into pricing procedures by the manufac- turers. But the companies like Alberta pondering investment in ports Border still open to cattle The movement of live cattle and swine and dressed beef, veal and pork from Canada to the United States is still little more than' a trickle even though quotas restricting possible movements are still unfilled. The U.S. government now restricts movement of all cattle except dairy and specified purebred breeds to eight per cent of the average shipment over the last five years. Still eligible for entry to the U.S. from across Canada are 141 cattle, swine, pounds dress beef or veal and pounds dressed pork. A customs inspector at Sweetgrass, Mont., told The Herald this morning little trade activity has occurred in the livestock industry since the quota for cattle was reopened in December. damage in house fire A fire in a North Lethbridge home Thursday caused about damage. The Lethbridge fire department was called to a fire at 1306 13th St. N. about a.m. The fire was in the bedroom of the house and the fire started near a duct underneath a bed. The house is owned by the Lethbridge Bukkyo Kai Church, 1303 13th St. N., and is rented by Michael Skruwkwa. The house was insured: Tarleck named NDP president, Bob Tarleck Thursday was re elected as president of the Lethbridge Metro New Democratic Party association. Mr. Tarleck, elected as an alderman last fall, will serve the association on an interim basis. The reason for the interim ap- pointment was the small turnout of 30 persons. Attendance at the annual meeting was handicapped by severe weather con- ditions. First vice president is Trevor Cook, second vice presi- dent is Van Buchanan, secretary is Ted Scheurkogel, and treasurer is Ted Buchanan. No word on grandstand grant No word has been received from the provincial government on a request by the Lethbridge and District Exhibition Associa- tion for funds for the million exhibition grandstand. Exhibition Manager Andy Andrews said Thursday the province is still studying the request for financial help. An answer is expected Jan. 20 or 25. A report on the progress of the grandstand is expected to be presented to the board of directors for the association at its regular meeting Tuesday. Sociologists' convention set Transactions in transition, a look at changing relationships with clients and services is the theme of the 1975 annual conference of the Alberta Association of Social Workers Jan. 17 and 18 in Calgary. Topics for workshop discussion at the conference include the alcohol problem, senior citizen centres, services to children, citizen appeal boards and police and social work. Dr. Hugh Homer, Alberta deputy premier and agriculture minister, said Thursday night the province is considering investment in port facilities in British Columbia. He said in an interview before a Conservative party meeting here he has received invitations from the mayor of Prince Rupert and the board of trade of Bella Coola, to look at the possibility of the Alberta government investing in port facilities at those points. His statement followed an announcement by Otto Lang, minister in charge of the Canadian Wheat Board, that the federal grain terminal at Prince Rupert may be turned over to private interests. 'The federal government has been criticized for operating the terminal below capacity. Dr. Homer told the annual Unifarm convention in December the province should spend some money to help im- prove B.C. Terminal facilities. He said Thursday that although no conference has been held with federal port authorities, "we would cer- tainly have a look at investing in the port of Prince Rupert." U.S. corn tour proposed A four day tour of corn, dairy, packing plant and feedlot operations in Colorado is planned Feb. 24 to 27 by the Alberta Corn Committee. Farmers, agribusiness representatives government staff and interested persons have been invited to attend to see an area of the United States where corn has been grown and used successfully under conditions similar to those in Southern Alberta. The fee of about will include transporttion, accom- modations and some meals. The group will fly from Calgary to Denver, Col. for a tour of a Safeways meat plant which covers 17 acres of land.

The third day will include farmer feedlots near Sterling, Col., a tour of the University of Colorado at Fort Collins and a meeting with feedlot operators and university staff.

IN THE OLD TRADITION OF WESTERN HOSPITALITY No date has been set for a referendum on Lethbridge Community College Students' Union building fund fees, the student president said Thur- sday. The date will be set at Tuesday's student council meeting, and will probably fall in the third week of January, said Hal referendum is required under the Colleges Act and the students' union constitution, he said.. A petition demanding the vote was drawn up and signed by more than 10 per cent of the students. The council has been collecting per student per semester and placing it in a student union building trust fund. Meanwhile, carpentry work is in progress as the old Fort Whoop-Up Building is converted to a SUB. Electrical, mechanical and plumbing tenders close today, said Mr. Gallup. Imperial Oil, which distribute fertilizer, point to a trebling in the price of natural gas and rising costs of phosphate rock, both key fertilizer ingredients, as the causes for stiff price hikes. Imperial Oil said another stiff increase might be on the way before next Spring. "The two major farm organizations (Unifarm. and NFU) should be asked by the government to help institute the Mr. Notley said today. He suggested a three man commission with the third person representing the public would be appropriate. "The price of natural gas may be going up but the com- panies are making more money because of that at the other end of their he said. Meanwhile, Western Co op Fertilizers, another major distributor in Alberta, says it is considering a price increase. "At this point in time t'm not sure we're going to go sales superintendent Bob Sloan said today. "We are not going to follow suit automatically. The board will be meeting next Tuesday to look at the situation." Mr. Sloan said Western Co op is being hit by phosphate rock prices of to a ton compared with a ton 18 months ago. Sulphur prices are also climbing, he said in a telephone interview from Calgary. Imperial started charging a ton for the widely used 11-48-0 ammonium phosphate fertilizer as of Jan. 6. Western Co-op's price at this point is a ton. The Imperial price in September of 1973 was a ton. Other fertilizers showed similar near doubled prices. The fertilizer division of Sherritt Gordon Mines an- nounced price increases dur- ing December. The phosphate fertilizer, 11-48, increased to from and anhydrous ammonia increased to a ton from YAMAHA ORGANS I New and Used COLLEGE MALL Phone 328-3694 Wilfe Janke, a company research agronomist and market co ordinator, ex- plained that the increases reflected .over all inflation, labor costs and recent increases in the price of natural gas. He warned that there could be "quite a substantial price increase" again before spring, both for phosphate fer- tilizers and nitrogen products. The problem with phosphates is the seemingly diminishing supply of raw material from Florida, traditional source for Cana- dian fertilizer manufacturers. Since natural gas is the largest single cost involved in producing nitrogen fertilizers, recent price increases in that fuel doubled from previous 20 cent levels and scheduled to rise to 62 and 72 cents per cubic feet are drastically affecting these fertilizers. Some companies with out- standing contracts are protected from these increases, but most contracts have been renegotiated in the last few months. FOX DENTURE CLINIC Est. 1922 PHONE 327-6565 E. S. P.
