Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 10, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta aO - THIIETHMIDOI HIRAID - Wednesday, March 10, 1971 Alberta schools rapped CALGARY (CP) - Lack of agreement between Alberta universities and Mount Royal College is contributing to the United States orientation of the college, vice - president D. M. Lauchlan said Tuesday. The college has two programs to transfer students to universities, he said. The A program was for the University of Calgary and the B program for other institutions. "Since our own universities will only grant B program students one or at most 1% years credit, is it any wonder 80 per cent of the graduates of this program go to United States universities where they get full credits? "And is it any wonder that in the interest of our own students we provide them with courses they can obtain credit for in their future academic careers? BROADER AGREEMENTS "For many years we have prepared people for university work, but our graduates will not be accepted by Alberta universities which are more interested in high school performance." Mr. Lauchlan, vice-president of student and community services, was speaking at the second day of public hearings into non-Canadian influence in post-secondary education in the province. The government - appointed, seven - member committee opened sittings Monday under Arnold Moir of Edmonton and is expected to continue today. Mr. Lauchlan said broader agreements with Alberta universities are needed immediately if the trend to American orientation is to be re-Versed. Greater efforts were also needed to make employable graduate students in Canada available to Canadian institutions. "Many American universities have placement services which make finding qualified people very easy. However, it is o f t e n difficult to find qualified Canadians." Mr. Lauchlan, presenting a brief for the college's board of governors, said hiring was based first on competence and if applicants were equal a Canadian would be given preference. In some areas, consideration was also given to an applicant's knowledge of Canadian requirements. KEY POSITIONS A brief from the Mount Royal Faculty Association urged that key policy positions be held by. Canadians, that Canadians head all departments and that no more than 25 per cent of any department be non-Canadian. It also said "post-secondary institutions should be more concerned with our true Canadians - the Indians." "Too many resources have been spent in observing them, less in promoting their unique standing as the red charter members of society." Submission planned on rail rates FALHER (CP) - One of Alberta's biggest problems in unfair freight rates, says Highways Minister Gordon Taylor. Mr. Taylor, speaking at a nominating convention for the provincial Social Credit party, said the province is preparing a submission on freight rates to the federal government. "We have been assured by the prime minister it will receive full attention," Mr. Taylor said. Bernard Lamoreux, � a 37-year-old Girouxville, farmer, was chosen to represent the party in Smoky River constituency in the next provincial election. Mr. Lamoreux received 326 votes compared with 272 for his only opponent, Norman Adolfson of Valleyview. Smoky River is a new constituency. BOMB U.S. BUILDINGS ST.
