Trafficking nets man 21 months Georgo Andrew Kergan, 25: of 706 A 7th Ave, S., was sen- tenced lo 21 months in jail by Lethbridgc District Court after being found guilty of traffick- ing in narcotics. Kergan was arrested and charged in November, 1971, in a joint raid by members of. the Lcthbridge city police and tho RCMP. He had been free on bail until the trial. During a case in January, Kergan testified, under the pro- tection of the Canada Evidence Act, that he had grown and cultivated marijuana in the riverbottom near the police shooting range. Man can't own gun for 3 years Keiulrick Walter Andrew Baytun, 30, of LeEhbridge was given a three-year suspended sentence after, being found guilty in Lethbridge District Court of possession of a wea- pon dangerous to the public. Baytun was arrested and charged Oct. 12, 1971 following a shooting incident in the 1800 block of ]9th St. S. early in the morning of Oct. 8.

Turcotte, in setting the suspended sen- tence, said, "This was a very unhappy situation in which per- sons not at all involved suffer- ed property damage.

Finlay Photo Stanfield's chances improving The Progressive Conserva- tive sweep in Newfoundland will improve Robert Stanfleld's chance in the next federal elec- tion, but Pierre Trudeau is still favored, even though lie may have to form a minority gov- ernment.

MOVING? AGENTS KOR ALLIED VAN LINES should rebuild the system on its own. One user mentioned that the present wafer system was 70 years old and in that time very little had been done to modernize or it. "For the past 15 years stud' ies and proposals have been made by various levels of gov- ernment but nothing definite has ever resulted by way o rehabilitation of the distribu tion works for this sale Mr. Thiessen. Some users called for s cliange in the control of water In the past, the irrigation dis- trict has been responsible for operation of the main canals only. After water was turned out of the main canal headgate, il became the responsibility ol the water users. In some cases up to 12 water users received irrigation water through the same headgate. One ratepayer said, "If you are the tail end of a long later- al and someone else decides to himself to your water dur- ing tho irrigation season, you can get quite worked up about it." Another user felt much of the problem was on education and information. Ho stated the av- erage housewife doesn't recog- nize the benefits of irrigation in terms of lower food bills for meat and dairy products. These benefits are not only received by the local people but arc distributed throughout tho province and the rest of the country, he said.

As to Lethbridge, it is a safo Conservative seat." Tom McLeod of the NDP pre- dicted a minority Liberal gov- ernment after the ntxt federal election. "There is little con- nection between Newfoundland politics and national he said. "I think it was a fore- gone conclusion that Frank Moores would win." Dick Gruemvald, Social Cred- it MLA for Lethbridge West, said Newfoundland does not have many seats "but it would be naive to say there won't be some effect." He said the up- comirig federal election will bo a "very close one" but the Lib- erals may fare slightly better. 4< aces in the hole! The friendly Friday night card game at the Henderson Lake Golf, Club established a precedent with a one million to one chance that netted a local businessman some pea- Eut money. Eight players were in- volved in a game of stook, a game in which the player re- ceiving cards totalling 21, or closer to that figure than the dealer, is the winner. Jack Innes was dealt two aces, an almost automatic winning hand. Dealer Frank Walker had one ace on the table and when he turned up the last card for his hand, it was another ace. The cheers for Jack turned to riotous bedlam for Frank and the end result is n sum- mer's yarn-stretching. FIFIST AID Eight members of the Lcth- bridge police force attended and successfully completed a St. John Ambulance Brigade first aid course during 1971. Original purpose lost Universities have ceased to remain universities By RUDY HAUGENEDEK Herald Slaff Writer Universities have ceased to remain universities, charged Dr. Bill Bockel, president of the University of Lethbridge. They have lost tlieir original purpose of existing "for a rela- tively small numljer of spe- cially enthused people of any age or background who seek basic knowledge and (ho com- plete understanding of that knowledge." Since the Second World War there has been "a wave of peop- ple" seeking post secondary ed- ucation, he said, Friday. This resulted in "unprece- dented and rapid, almost un- thinking growth" in univer- sities and the development of new ones. "Innovations In a variety of areas took place, including adaptation to demands for training of a tecOmical and vo- cational he said, and this is when "universities stopped being universities." Far-sighted educators were instrumental in establishing community colleges, Dr. Bock- el said. These offer vocational and technical training including ap- plied arts, "enriched with the liberal arts and and have their place In post-second- ary education. However, as community col- leges grew the universities con- tinued to grow. But universities "were so caught up in the intoxication of rapid growth that they didn't seem to know how to stop, to shrink, to return to being uni- versities." And the governments were partly to blame, he said. Universities were never as- sured by government that "if they stop growing and develop- ing that their bills would be said Dr. Beckel. "When the only obvious way to pay your bills is to grow, no matter where you get the material for growth, then you are under obligation to force growth even if it's education ally unsound." A place for "rigorous intel lectual the univer sity "is not for everyone, bu could be for he sale to about 50 northwest AJnitei States and Western Canadian reading specialists here for a one-day conference.

The university education Is an educational end in itself, he said, adding, "producing the scholar, the academic, the in- tellectual." Of the four universities that exist in the province, including Athabasca University wMch is City hearing set still in tin? planning stages; each "illustrates differerxly what the definition of a univer- sity might and the pufcUfl is confused. This confusion leads to pub- lic suspicion of universities and university education, ho said. The suspicion has resulted in a negative public attitude to- wards universities. Govt. to protect historical sites The public rape of Allwrta's historic sites may become a criminal offense as early as this fall. Bill Yurko, minister of the en v i r o n m e nt, arid Horst Schmid, minister of culture, youth and recreation, have re- quested the Environment Con- servation Autlwrity to conduct public hearing about the pres- ervation of archaeological and historical sites in the province. The hearings are to be held In Lethbridge, May 25, and in Calgary arid Edmonton the fol lowing week. The ministers authorized the hearings to gain recommenda- tions for legislation likely to be introduced this fall. Alberta currently has no spe- cific legislation protecting the sites. Locally, the request for the hearings have been well re- ceived. Frank Smith, manager of the Robbery suspects remanded Derik Neiman, 26, and Wil- liam McMahon, 21, both of Lethbridge were remanded in custody without plea, when they appeared in magistrate's court Friday. Neiman was arrested and charged with robbery with vio- lence March 17 following the seating and robberv of Edward Sherring, 50, of 1029 12th St. S. earlier the same day. McMahon was arrested and charged with the same offense March 19, Both men were remanded In custody without plea March 20. Mr. Sherring remained in Municipal Hospital his morning and was reported m good condition. HUMIDIFIERS AND FURNACE AND REFRIGERATION SERVICE Charlton Hill Ltd. Travel and Convention Associa- tion of Soutliern Alberta, said the decision was encouraging and important towards the con- tinued development of the tourist industry in this prov- ince. Tourists enjoy visiting sites whore artifacts and informa- tion are available. Because most Alberta his- toric sites are currently situatr ed on private land, many re- maining artifacts are intention- ally and unintentionally des- troyed or removed, he said. Souvenir hunters ara guilty of raiding historic sites of arti- facts and thereby making it difficult for archaeologists to read an accurate picture of the past. Various local sites, such as Writing on Stone Park and the buffalo jump near Fort Maclcod have already been de- secrated. Mr. Smith said "idiots" have scratched their names overtop Indian picto graphs at tha park and there is currently an individual, c o in p 1 e te "with truck, collecting artifacts at jumpsite, to sell. In defence of past govern- ment's, he said, this is a new country and the government had not appreciated the impor- tance (tourist economics) oj historic sites. A3 a result thev had not implimcnted protectiv6 legislation.
