Currertly. university and col- lege fees cover about 17 per cent of the costs of various courses, The announcement was made in position papers tabled in the legislature on the respansj of the department of advanced ed- ucation to various recommenda- tions of the Worth Commission on educational planning. The department also rejected a recommendation that univer- sity senates might well be dis- banded. The papers did nat comment on the acceptance or rejection of the various recommenda- tions. The papers endorsed the rec- ommendation that private col- leges deserve provincial sup- port provided they arc approv- ed by ths eminent. The government also agreed with the proposition that the prime function of ths univer- sity board of governors should be to plan for the long-range with a special advisory com- mittee on comirminal property and land use and the three cab- inet ministers in charge of the rural land situation Bob Bowling, Hugh Horner and Dave Russell. The Social Credit MLA for the area, Ray Speaker, who at- tended the meeting, Nsaid he will question the government en functions of the communal property advisory committee today in the legislature and at- tempt to arrange the meeting. Residents were incensed Wednesday when they learned that about 60 sections of land have been sold to the Hutterites in Alberta without consultation with area residents or the com- mittee. Arnold Platt, chairman of the committee which was establish- ed April 1 to deal with Hutter- ite colony expansion, revealed j at the meeting that land pur- chases by the religious sect have been approved by a sub- committee consisting of him- self and six Hutterite elders. Mr. Speaker told The Herald the advisory committee has re- ceived virtually no direction NixoTts relative ball ivriter PHILADELPHIA (AP) Da- v i d Eisenhower, President Nixon's son-in-law, has taken a job as a baseball writer with the Philadelphia Evening and Sunday Bulletin. George Packard, The Bulle- tin's managing editor, said Wednesday Eisenhower, 25, wiE cover Philadelphia Phillies of the National League East. Packard said Eisenhower will write a Sunday column. He said Eisenhower was hired because "he likes from the provincial govern- ment and seems very uncer- tain of its role. Dr. Platt was not available for comment today, but an as- sistant, Ken Hoeppner, said a meeting between the commit- tee, the cabinet ministers in- volved and Vulcan area res- idents could probably be ar- ranged in the next few weeks after the legislature adjourns. The meeting Wednesday also protested the expansion of Hut- terite land in the Grassy Lake area earlier this year without consultation with local res- idents. With the repeal of the Com- munal Property Act March 1, the provincial government can only advise the Hutterites about where colony expansion should take place.

Eml CALGARY (CP) The pub- lic utilities board concluded Wednesday its hearings into an application by Calgary Power Ltd. to increase rates 15 par cent. The company has already been granted the increase en an interim basis; the utilities board decision on a permanent increase is expected during the summer. The hearings, held in three stages in January, dealt with company arguments for an increase and evidence from intervenors higher rates. against the per's name from the medical register after a disciplinary hearing found him guilty of un- becoming conduct by improp- erly prescribing controlled drugs. j The council of the college I found that Dr. Casper "should have been aware that he was j acting as a supplier of drugs for other than a medical purpose." Dr. Casper appealed the March 2 action and on March 21 Mr. Justice NeiL Primrose ordered that he should be sus- pended until June 1, when he could resume practice. Striking a doctor's name from the medical register is the most severe punishment the college can give. It means the doctor has lost his medical privileges for life unless the college should approve an ap- plication for reinstatement. The college council did not accept Dr. Casper's explana- tion that he was misled by the patients involved in the case.
