Open (MIL 'Marriage licence should state women's rights9 TABER A legal contract should be written right into a marriage licence to protect the rights of women, says an executive of the Women of Unifarm. Inga Marr of Pincher Creek, first vice- president of Women of Unifarm, said old- fashioned laws will soon force women to take this drastic step for their own protection in case of legal separation or divorce. Pointing to several legal cases in which farm wives were unsuccessful in getting a portion of their husbands farm operations following a marriage breakdown, Mrs. Marr said rural women should at least make themselves completely familiar with the law so they know where they stand. She told about 60 persons at the Unifarm Region One annual meeting, including 10 women, the Supreme Court of Canada discriminates against women. Until 50 years ago, women weren't even considered people by the supreme court. It took a decision by the Privy Council to change this stand. "And the supreme court isn't making any better decisions for women now than it did 50 years she said. Pointing to the Murdoch case near High River in 1972, Mrs. Marr said the woman took the case all the way to the highest court and lost. In this case, a Mrs. Murdoch asked for half of her husband's land assets after a marriage breakdown. Mrs. Marr said the woman had been married for 25 years, had invested some of her own money in the farm and had worked on the farm for many of those years. Yet the supreme court decided the woman had done only what was expected of any farm wife and therefore awarded her per month. Following this decision, Women of Unifarm approached the Alberta government to prevent any further "bad decisions." Their position was since rural women contribute to the build-up of farms, they should receive 50 per cent of the assets. The women were unhappy with the province's response. U, chamber ties sought Communication between the business community and the University of Lethbridge could be improved if the Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce had a non-voting representative at the meetings of the university's board of governors. The Chamber of Commerce will make the recommendation in a brief to be presented Saturday to the U of L senate. In January, the senate asked individuals or community organizations to submit any concerns they might have about the university to its meeting Saturday. "It is appreciated certain amounts of time and funds are expanded in terms of public relations and communication and the chamber strongly supports adequate growth in these operations to expand public the brief suggests. The chamber also recommends that the U of L facilitate advanced business course offerings in Lethbridge with the co-operation of the faculties of business administration at the University of Alberta and Calgary. Seminars and short-term courses such as marketing and industrial relations would be of value to senior executives as well as middle- management and admin- istrative personnel, the chamber brief states. It also suggests the U of L should assume a major role in making the study of agriculture available to people in all phases of the industry. In order to study and discuss the complex aspects of agriculture in this region effectively, 'the chamber suggests a closer liaison among the U of A faculty of agriculture, the Canada Research Station in the city and the U of L is needed. When the 6th Avenue bridge is completed, the chamber says, the university should take advantage of the opportunity to reduce its image of isolation by encouraging the public to utilize campus facilities, attend university functions and tour the campus. The chamber also commended the U of L for introducing the co-operative studies program to its curriculum and proposing the introduction of the management arts program. "These academic programs are identifiable from the business viewpoint and in addition offer valuable aspects of the liberal arts the brief states. The U of L has applied to the department of advanced education for approval of the management arts program Energy resource board plans Brooks hearing The Energy Resources Conservation Board will hold a hearing March 21 at Brooks to examine the effect of oil and gas development on agriculture. .Al McLarty, a solicitor for the board, said Thursday in a telephone interview from Calgary that the hearing is part of a board-initiated study with special regard to irrigation areas. Copies of the hearing notice and a staff submission have been sent to all irrigation districts in the province, he said. Mr. McLarty also said nearby drilling wells conflict with irrigation equipment and one aspect of the hearing may examine well-spacing in this regard. Sites have been targeted for the centre of a quarter- section or section, but spacing at the edges may be considered. Farmer interest in Unifarm said to be dwindling Research station warns of food supply problems TABER A dwindling interest in Unifarm was reported here Thursday and members of the farmer organization were divided on how to increase membership and finances. About 60 members of Unifarm at the Region 14 annual meeting were told by Lethbridge farmer John Murray there is too much easy money in agriculture today and people "are riding on the shirttails of getting all the benefits without paying their way. While there was considerable agreement with a plan that would provide a check-off payment from every farmer to be used to finance farmer groups in the province, it was decided such a system would pose problems The University of Lethbridge must play a more effective role in conveying a new awareness of the food crisis and train students who will be able to help the world cope with food supply problems. That is the firm stance taken.by the executive committee of the Canada Research Station in a brief to be presented Saturday to the U of L senate. The brief claims increases in food costs are a definite indication of the world's inadequate supply of food. Shortages of land and fuel and restrictions on the use and supply of agricultural chemicals will hinder Canada's capacity to supply food in the future, the brief projects. To overcome the food crisis, Tollestrup getting out of road-paving work Some million worth of highway construction equipment will be auctioned off in the city April 4. The equipment bulldozers, graders, loaders, crushing equipment, asphalt plants and pavers has been sold by Tollestrup Construction Co. Ltd. of the city to Ritchie Brothers Auctioneers of Vancouver. Steve Tollestrup, of the local firm, said Thursday the company decided to get out of the highway paving business to concentrate on local sand and gravel and paving work. Mr. Tollestrup said a poor labor situation, and costs going up faster than highway contract prices led to the decision. "The city is booming and we decided to concentrate our work where we he said. Another reason for making the move now, he said, is that used equipment is commanding a good price because of lengthy delivery times for new equipment. Mr. Tollestrup said the decision means a reduction of about 10 per cent in management employees at the firm and a considerably greater reduction in the transient labor force it hires.

Valerie Goodrider, Melv in Jones, Jerry Kovacs, Matt Lipton and Doug Soroff. the committee suggests Canadians must discover new knowledge and technology, learn to use land differently and develop more concentrated and efficient production. The brief also warns that a shortage of trained personnel is "becoming apparent" in some areas of agriculture science in Canada and an expected high rate of retirements in the next 7-10 years will result "in very serious shortages." The retirements will result when the large core of professionals, who were part of the rapid expansion of agricultural research in the early post-war years, complete 25 to 30 years of service in the near future. The replacement of this human resource, "at a time of world shortage of food, must be a high priority concern of the educational institutions of this country." the brief states. That is why the research centre committee is presenting the brief urging strengthening of the university's department of biology to fulfill the demands for biological graduates. The university should strengthen the department of biology as soon as it is feasible for it to do so, but until that time it should make "more use of the scientific resources of the Lethbridge the brief suggests. The university could use the research station personnel and facilities to supplement its curricula and provide work-study programs, the brief maintains. The station employs 70 scientists who are highly trained in the biological and agricultural sciences. The committee says it is not advocating the development of a faculty of agriculture at the U of L. "But we do advocate the development of courses of under-graduate study that would attract students interested in agricultural research or in related biological fields and enable them to attend the U of L for more than the one or two years currently available."
