Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 11, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Professor quota system opposed Thwndoy, March 11, 1971 - THi IETHBRIDGI HERALD - 17 CALGARY (CP) - Limits on the hiring of foreign instructors would compromise the quality of post - secondary education, a brief from students at the University of Calgary told a government committee Wednesday. "A quota system would com pel universities to treat professors as imports or Canadians, the way football teams do. "There is no other area of the labor market in which such a restriction is imposed. No-lead gasoline sales still low TORONTO (CP) - Sales of no-lead and low-lead gasolines introduced in Canada last year are remaining low despite recent increases in sales of new oars for which the gasolines were primarily developed. Some older models can also use the gasolines, designed to reduce air pollution caused by automotive emissions, but the gasolines were developed mainly for 1971 models. The new cars can also use gasoline blends with leads. The new gasoline brands are lingering ait or below an average of two per cent of service station volume. They came on the market last fall supported by costly advertising campaigns at a time when sales of new cars were slow and just prior to a 94-day strike by employees of General Motors of Canada Ltd. However, GM's Canadian sales in February were up 90.8 per cent from January and there has been no corresponding increase in sales of the new gasoline brands. OUTLETS LIMITED Charles Hayles, assistant general manager, marketing for Imperial Oil Ltd., said Imperial is selling its low-lead brand in about 550 service stations in its 6,500-outlet chain. He said poor consumer response is one of the reasons the company stopped a program in which it was planned to have 1,100 outlets for the new gasoline by the end of the year. Imperial calls its brand Esso 2000. Sun Oil began marketing Sunocolite and Shell's no-lead product is named Shell Ultra. Gulf Oil Canada Ltd. of Toronto had announced earlier it was blending additives into its regular and premium grade "asolines that would reduce sub-stantially "the two largest harmful components in automotive emissions-carbon monoxide and unburned hydrocarbons." SHELL CHARGES MORE Esso 2000 and Sunocolite sell at the same price as regular gasoline while Shell intra charges a wholesale premium of 2.5 cents a gallon. Shell Canada is selling Its Ultra brand through 700 of its 6,200 outlets. However, "it's not proceeding quite as rapidly as initially conceived and response from the public has been slower than we'd hoped," a companv spokesman said. Sun Oil introduced Sunocolite at about 200 outlets west of Belleville, where sales represent less than two per cent of over-all volume-"rather disap- pointing" in the words of George Brereton, the company's marketing manager. Rare Canadian stamps sold for $5,300 LONDON (CP) - A block of four extremely rare Canadian stamps featuringa famous printing error was sold at Stan ley Gibbon's auction rooms here Wednesday for �2,200 ($5,300). The issue was the 1959 five cent stamp commemorating the opening of the St. Lawrence seaway. An identical stamp was issued in the United States, but one sheet of the Canadian stamps was printed with the entire centre block inverted. A spokesman for Stanley Gibbon's described the error as the most famous in modern Canadian philately. A single example would cost a collector �800 ($1,900) if bought from a dealer on Gibbon's catalogue valuation. No details of buyer or vendor were disclosed. New college principal named VICTORIA (CP) - Dr. Grant Fisher, 35, associate professor of education at the University of Alberta, has been appointed principal of Camosun College, hie college council announced here. A specialist in college ad ministration, Dr. Fisher will begin his duties as principal at the new regional college here June 1. Dr. Fisher was selected from 237 applicants. "The concern for the possession of a certificate of citizenship greatly hampers the ability of a university to hire the best professors. "A university should not accept less than adequate professors simply because .they are Canadian." AMERICAN IMPERIALISM The student brief, presented to a provincial commission studying foreign influence on Alberta's higher education system, said the publishing industry represented the only case of "American imperialism" at the university. Less than four per cent of the course texts purchased by the university bookstore were Canadian publications, it said. Representatives of the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology said only 5.4 per cent of the 410 persons on academic staff were foreign. Canadians were recruited easily from the industrial and business communities which the school serves. The seven - member committee, chaired by Edmonton lawyer Arnold Moir, was expected to conclude hearings by today before moving to other centres in the province.. MASSIVE TANKER The Japanese, who will complete a 477,000-ton oil tanker in 1973, now are considering one of a million tons that would be nearly haflf a mile long. Strike deadline for AMC plant DETROIT (AP) - The United Auto Workers Union Wednesday set April 2 as the strike deadline for agreement on a new American Motors Corp. employees in the U.S. and Canada. If a new pact is not negotiated by 5:45 a.m. EST on that date, the union said, the workers will walk out at AMCS three plants -in Kenosha and Milwaukee, Wis., and Brampton, Ont. SETS WRONG EXAMPLE RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - C. S. Waters, has been suspended as North Carolina's director of driver education after being convicted of reckless driving. Waters was fined $50 and court costs a week ago. He was driving a state-owned car that went off the road and into a ditch. Medina charge changed fort Mcpherson, Ga. (ap) - The U.S. Army said Wednesday the premeditated murder charges on which Capt. Ernest Medina will be tried do not accuse him of personally killing 100 My Lai villagers in South Vietnam during a sweep by units of his company. a spokesman for 3rd Army Headquarters, where Medina is stationed, acknowledged that the language of the charge against the captain has been moderated-but said he is still held responsible for killings allegedly committed by his men. He is charged additionally with personally killing two persons at My Lai by shooting them. The army announced Monday that Medina, who was Lieut. William L. Calley's superior officer, will be tried. Calley is being tried at Fort Benning on charges of murdering 102 villagers. The army announcement cited this specification: "In that Capt. Ernest L. Medina ... did ... on or about 16 March, 1968, with premeditation, murder an unknown number of unidentified Vietnamese persons, not less than 100, by means of shootri;! these persons with machine-guns, rifles and other weapons." The charge announced last April 1 was similar, except that it said Medina did "with premeditation, murder an unknown number of unidentified Viet- namese persons, not less than 175, by causing them to be shot and killed with machine-guns, rifles and other weapons." The reworded charge deleted the words "by causing them" and lowered the number of alleged victims to 100 from 175. "We did not intend to convey that we have accused the captain of personally slaying the specified number of individuals," said a legal officer. "He is still accused of over-all responsibility."
