With gophers out sunning themselves, can holes in terror, this character couldn't get a close enough look at Herald robins and green grass be far behind? Autonomy assured by gov't University senates safe By GHEG McINTYRE Herald Legislative Bureau Education Minister Jim Foster strongly denied in the legisla- ture Friday that the govern- ment plans to "take over" uni- versities, colleges or vocation- al schools or that senates at Alberta's three universities will be abolished. Jim Henderson, leader of the Social Credit opposition, charg- ed that "serious concern" for academic freedom and the au- thority of boards of governors surrounds a reorganization of the department of advanced ed- ucation currently in progress. The colleges and universities commissions are to be abolish- ed in April as part of that re- organization. Mr. Foster said the depart- ment of advanced education will take over most of the func- tions ot the commissions. However, he stressed that there is no intention to in any way destroy the authority of the MARCH SPECIAL ROSE BOWL AND CYB1DIUM ORCHID boards of governors that'run the universities, community col- leges and vocational schools. He raid "we want to assure the role and authority of boards of governors, but more than that, we want to strengthen and improve that role." He added I am going to prepare a formal statement for boards of governors to clarify what may be remaining a small misunderstanding Mr. Foster denied an accusa- tion by Mr. Heralerson that the reorganization is "centralizing" power under the department. The minister declared "that Is entirely and absolutely correct. We are attempting to involve the institutions them- selves and more members of the public into the decision- making process in advanced ed- ucation than was previously the case." The department of advancec education was created by the new Conservative government last year. It is responsible for the three universities, six com munily instilutes of technology at Calgary and Ed monton and the agricultural vo- cational colleges in Alberta. The government was plan ning to abolish the colleges and universities commissions even before a recommendation to do so was made in the Worth Re- port last year, Mr. Foster said The Worth Report which fore casts future trends in education n Alberta also recommended he abolition of university sen- ates. Bob Clark, former socred education minister, asked "if t's still the government's in- ention to remove the senates of the University of Alberta, Che University of Calgary and the University of Lethbridge and if there has been con- sultation with the students at he universities." Mr. Foster replied "I'm ab- solutely astounded, I really am I have no idea where the member got the im- pression that this government was committed to abolishing the senates of universities. Cer- tainly I have never made that statement." The admitted the elimination of senates at uni vcrsities in Alberta is a "major recommendation" in the Worth Report, but added "I persorr ally feel that the senates are an extremely useful forum in the university community anc essential to the functioning of a university." Mr. Foster said he will havy Treaty 7 for expenses incurred during the year of ne- ;otiations. Stemming from a 95-year-old :reaty agreement, the payment was made after more than year of negotiations. The Indians of the Blood and Peigan tribes near Leth- bridge and the Blackfoot, Stonoy and Sarcee tribes near Calgary had demanded for the pay which would have been spent on ammunition since the signing of the treaty. They also calculated the amount of in- terest which would have ac- crued. Mr. Mills said a meeting will he held this month, likely at Calgary, cl all band councils involved in Treaty 7 to decide how the payment will be dis- tributed. Of the total of residents, there are Indi- ans on the Blood and Peigan Reserves. Mr. Mills said the agreemen was more significant than the amount of money to be paid to the Indians. He said other treaty claims will now be pur sued for payment. By RIC SWI1IART Herald Staff Writer No authorization will be given by the Canadian wheat board to allow the use of U.S. wheat to fill export commit- ments, according to G. N. Vo- gel, chief commissioner of the CWB. Responding to advertise- ments and press releases circu- lating throughout Montana 'claiming U.S. wheat will be sold to the wheat board to fill ex port sales, Mr. Vogel told The Herald in a telephone interview Friday from Winnipeg, Canada has adequate supplies to fill all export sales commitments. He said he has alerted all customs agents' that no U.S. grains may enter Canada with- out the permission of the wheat board, the selling agency for the nation's grain farmers. The press releases and ad- vertisements appearing in sev- eral U.S. weekly and daily newspapers are being sponsor- ed by a group of Montana farm- ers, heac-Sd by Chester Jucl of Scobey, Montana, 120 miles south of Regina. Mr! Juel told The Herald in a telephone interview Wednesday lie idea to sell U.S. wheat to he wheat board was prompted >y reports of low stocks of Ca- nadian grain. Mr. Juel also farms just in- side Canada and he claims he lasn't any wheat on hand from lis Canadian farming venture. Mr. Juel said farmers from as far west as Conrad, Mont., wheat, about 23 cents per bush- el higher than the U.S. export price. There is a handling charge of 39 cents per bushel charged to the Canadian farmer, said Mr. Juel. "We want per bushel for all the wheat we can sell to the wheat board in Canada. "This will allow the farmers In Montana to realize 60 cents a bushel more for their grain and at the same time allow the wheat board in Canada to pour on extra 40 cents per bushel into the pockets of Canadian farmers." Mr. Juel said U.S. farmers would supply what ever stocks oi wheat Canada would take, over and above the available stocks in Canada. Brian SommerviUe, public re- lations officer for Uie Alberta Wheat Pool, said oats is the only grain Canada could be short of. He said there appears to be adequate stocks of wheat. Mr. Sommenille said there would be a real uproar if Cana- dian farmers, thought U.S. fanners were being paid per bushel by the wheat board. The initial payment for wheat graded No. 1 in Canada for the coming crop will be per bushel, said Mr. Som- merville. U of L offers special courses 125 miles south of Lethbridge, and east into North Dakota have signified they are willing to put their wheat into a pool for sale to the wheat board. Mr. Juel said the group of farmers will make an offer to sell one million bushels of wheat to the wheat board March' 8 and 9 in Saskatoon. Using simple arithmetic, the U.S. farmers have arrived at a "solution" which they feel will be beneficial to Canadian and American farmers. The local price at U.S. eleva- tors for No. 1 grade U.S. spring wheat is per bushel. The export price for Canadian wheat at Vancouver is per bushel for the same grade Provincial court Hash trafficker remanded A 20-year-old Lethbridge man charged with possession of hashish and marijuana for pur- poses of trafficking pleaded guilty lo the charges Fri- day and was remanded to next Friday in custody.
