Bill Wearmouth, a Calgary contractor, was nominated by the party to contest Calgary-Bow Constituency in the next srovincial action and panic legislation." Mi'. Gurba, supervisor of crop protection and pest control, said many well-intentioned protesters have little factual knowledge about pesticides.

Problems of over-use of misuse of pesticides would not be solved by banning DDT and mercury. Mr. Gurba said that action of this kind could be misleading unless safer compounds take their place. Heavier doses and repeated applications are required by the majority of replacement pesticides and less is known about them, he said.

Union members voted 82 per cent in favor of strike action last Thursday but held back on a walkout, in hopes of getting talks with 'city officials going again. "We had an emergency meeting Saturday, said Ron Brown, president of Local 37 of the Canadian1 Union of Public Employees.

Reports prevail here thai Premier Harry Strom or Education Minister Robert Clark, in conjunction with the federal government, will announce shortly the signing over to t Namao berta of the entire Canadian Armed Forces base at Namao. The formal announcement was made earlier this year that St. Albert had been selected as the new university site. In Edmonton financial circles, thousands of dollars have changed hands as investors vie rath each other and Iry lo oul-guess each other as to the actual site. It is felt that at a time of strained relationships between Ottawa and Western Canada, the signing of the Namao base could relieve the gradual buildup of tensions. Even more importanl to improve Liberal relationship with the West would be to pi'esent a ready-made university complete with administration offices, buildings which could easily be converted to university We. Other facts which lend themselves to Namao are easy access to Edmonlon along the four-lane divided Highway 28, a railway spur line which is less lhari lullf a mile from the base, a self-contained power station it Namao and service and roe-mtfoo HALE f OPTICAL Dispensing Optician COMPANY LTD 307 6th it.
