Mr. Berlando, commenting on statements made recently by U of L officials, says they should "hang their heads in shame," for bringing in scab labor from outside of the city when so much unemployment exists right in Lethbridge. Mr. Berlando said he is not surprised by the statements made by the university officials, because they don't understand unions. He said he is aware the situation is a "dirty rotten mess," but what is the use in drafting union regulations if members don't plan to live up to them?" He said there should be no mistake; that the union men at the site are upset, and on several occasions have been on the verge of picking up stakes to start swinging.

COMPLETE CARPET AND LINOLEUM INSTALLATION HAMILTON'S FLOOR COVERING LTD. 909 3rd Ave. S. Ph. 327-5454 By JIM WILSON Herald Education Writer Amidst cat-calls from com-mitee members, Ken Runge, University of Lethbridge Students' Society Council president, presented the U of L students' brief to the Moir committee to inquire into non-Canadian influence in Alberta post-secondary' education. Mr. Runge had made a copy of the brief available earlier to Arnold Moir, chairman of the committee, and before Mr. Moir . allowed Mr. Runge to read the brief he told him he could not present the first quarter of it to the bearing. "It's not relevant to the study," Mr. Moir said, following a lecture concerning the propriety of criticizing the committee or speaking on topics outside of the terms of reference of the committee. "But your reasons for existence must be relevant, otherwise there is no point in your entire exercise, and that's what we're questioning," Mr. Runge replied. "if we can't make our feelings known about why your committee shouldn't exist, then we offer the strongest possible rejection of the way your committee is railroading some sort of document on the people of this province." The rejected section questioned the relevance of Mr. Moir's committee, and Mr. Runge said that by the definition of purpose in the committee's name it was already biased. The unaccepted part of the brief pointed out the election year timing of the study, and suggested that "by using as scapegoats those persons in Alberta who are not allowed to vote (non-Canadians), we see the attention of the public being drawn away from the major problems of educational and economic policy in Alber ta." It also referred to the committee's statement that it is interested in the "public unrest at the hiring of non-Canadian staff," and the brief asked if the committee was "referring to campus demonstrations or riots in the street, or do you, pei haps, hope that this committee will be successful in creating public interest?" Mr. Runge was eventually permitted to read the remainder of the brief, but was interrupted several times by heckling from committee members. It expressed rear of the possibility of a committee recommendation for establishment of a quota on foreign faculty, and suggested that more could be gained if the committee studied reasons why Canadian students leave Canada to attend American universities. The brief expressed student concern over the committee's interest in "production of graduates." Students wanted it known that they considered university a place to develop their capacity to function well in all aspects of society, not just on the job market. It said the real problem was how to develop sufficient qualified Canadians to teach in Ca- CLIFF BLACK, Certified Dental Mechanic BLACK DENTAL LAB lower level MEDICAL DENTAL BLDG.

"Canada does not have a world monopoly on truth and wisdom, and to close our borders to qualified people would be to eliminate an important and necessary source of knowledge." /And: "The diverse nature of the instruction available to Canadian students at the present time is superior to any which would be available through an enforced, closed system." In discussion later, Mr. Runge told the committee that if it "is really sincere in wanting to do something good for Alberta's education, it should give the government a piece of paper that says 'No Report.' " He said he saw a "distinct danger" that recommendations from the committee would otherwise eventually become "stifling legislation." However, Mr. Runge and others present told the committee they no longer feared it as a "witch hunt." Mr. Moir asked why the students' brief did not deal with problems of Canadian content in courses1, and asked when the U of L had introduced the Canadian courses it offers. Mr. Runge replied: "Are we attacking the past, present or future? Those facts are available in the university calendars, we don't need to give them to you in a brief." Students' needs not met claims U of L lecturer By HERB JOHNSON Herald Staff Writer The Moir committee of inquiry into non-Canadian influences in Alberta post-secondary education was told Thursday in Lethbridge that post secondary institutions "are not enhancing our cultural life, that instead they often seem bent on destroying the Canadian reality." The comment was made by Robert Tarleck, lecturer in English at the University of Lethbridge, during the presentation of a brief on behalf of the Lethbridge branch of the Committer for an Independent Canada. Mr. Tarleck said there are "powerful non-Canadian forces within these institutions which are insensitive to the needs of Canadian students." "One of the reasons non-Canadian professors are insensitive to the specific needs of Canadian students is that they see their role only in its most narrow context," he said. As teachers, he said, non-Canadian professors are limited in that they cannot convey ideas through Canadian illustrations and cannot see ideas in terms of the total Canadian context. They tend to reflect an outside, rather than a Cana- Inquest set March 16 An inquest into the death on George Calling Last Jr., of Cardston, will be held in the Lethbridge Court House, March 16 at 9 a.m. Calling Last's badly-burned body was discovered by Lethbridge fire fighters when they answered an early morning call Feb. 25, at the Marshall Auto Wrecker's Yard, 308 2nd St. S. The body was ^covered after the fire fighters had extinguished a fire in the wrecked shell of a panel truck. Identification of the body was made Feb. 26 after the finger prints had been checked. *v Pharmacy Facts from O. C. STUBBS Why be like the man who jumped on his horse and rode off in all directions?

While it probably never occurs to you, AVAILABILITY is always the key word where drugs are concerned when you bring doctor's prescriptions to us. After all, the finest drug in the world is useless to you if it isn't on the shelves - or available to us -when you come in our door. And it's for this reason that we continually stock more than three thousand (3,000) prescription drugs . . . at all times. And we have to be able to locate any one of these thousands of drugs, instantly. In fact, one of the prime requisites for good pharmaceutical practice in the ability to be a "good storekeeper". We have to be good storekeepers - have to always be able to immediately locate the drug(s) your doctor's prescription designates before we can begin to serve you with iU instructions, i dian culture, both inside and outside the classroom, he said. He g a v e as an example the case of an art professor in Calgary who, he said, tells his students there is "no Canadian art, that art in Canada is nothing more than an imitation of American schools of art." Referring again to the "Canadian reality," he noted that it was shaped by factors that are peculiar to Canada, things that should be altered only by the choice of Canadians themselves. This Canadian perspective, plus Canadian material and personnel are not felt by the CIC to be luxuries, he said. They are necessary if Canadians are to retain their sep-arateness as a people. If this is lost, he sawi, Canada will also lose her separateness as a nation. Mr. Tarleck also expressed concern about the position of the Canadian academic, who was, he said, in the unenviable position of "competing for jobs in his own country on an equal footing with academics from every other country." Other countries, he said, insist on a majority of university positions being held by native citizens. In Canada, he said, Automotive Franchise Opportunity For An Exclusive Automotive Product For Southern Alberta. Write Box 38, Lethbridge Herald the academic often finds himself in the minority, "a stranger among his own people." He said the situation is getting worse. He quoted figures indicating that the percentage of Canadian professors had dropped to 49 per cent frorr 75 per cent between 1963 and 1968. In 1968 some 86 per cent of new appointments went to non-Canadians, he said. There appeared to be no major points of disagreement between Mr. Tarleck and the committee. The CIC's position was, Mr. Tarleck said, that there was a problem but that it was not in a position to suggest specific remedies. He did say that he would prefer not to see legislation enacted to control the situation. A better approach would be to have the problem handled by the universities themselves, he said.
