W. R. Can-others concerning admission policies for nev. students. Dr. Carrctbers said earlier this wesk that some form of entrance examinations must be set for new students now that departmental exams have bsen discontinued for high school graduates. Mr. Foster said institutions should stay away from condi- tions that would create "any artificial barrier to admission to universities and colleges." U of L president Dr. Bill Beckel said he has no com- ment on either proposal. A review Work proceeds way 3 Tampering with 'Pirates9 paid off By LYNNE VAN LUVE.V Outrageously updated and presented with verve, "The Pirates of Penzance" enter- tained an appreciative ca- pacity audience Wed nesday evening. Presented at the Yates Me- morial Centre by the Leth- bridge Stake Mutual Im- provement Association. "Pi- rates" offered several scenes of rollicking humor, strength- ened by strong voiced per- formances by several of the principal players. Tampering with the works cf Gilbert and Sullivan might be considered an activity of dubious merit, had not di- rector Georgia Focks imple- mented her changes so judi- ciously. The setting for "Pi- rates" was changed from Britain to Canada. Ca- nadian content regulations aside, the relocation lent it- self to '-local color" and comi- cal adaptations. Could those bumbling policeman in scar- Jet tunics (replacing the oper- etta's original blundering British constabulary) actual- ly be the RCMP? Indeed they were, a1though the robbing was good natured. Aside from being clever, the number in which the men in "scariet and gold" troop onstage astride their frisky, perfectly matched "steeds" was extremely funny. And the finale, where the name of Pierre (Trudeau) is used to vanquish the patriotic band of pirates, is priceless. One other thing you should know: the pirates in the musical are not pirates at all just income tax col- lectors who "went astray." Without doubt, Ian Mandin as Major General Stanley, "the very model of a modem major-general" was the star of the evening. Mr. Mandin's comic sense is impeccable. His portrayal of the protean soldier who sired 20 daugh- ters, but is given to much quivering in his boots, was pure delight.

Builders preparing for Parade of Homes imposing figure: Ms voice was fine, his leer sinister and his laugh had the right .touch of the diabolical. Kathleen Stringam Thompson was a comely and enchanting Ma- bel, using her clear and ef- fortless singing' voice to ef- fective advantage. Courtney Loose as Frederick, the pi- rate apprentice, had a meaty part, but never seemed quite to come to grips with it, sounding and looking a bit forced and wooden, even in the final scenes. Betty Sorenson. as Fred- erick's nurse Ruth, was mis- tress of her role and fine comedienne that she both the audience's hearts end laughter. And of course Dick Hum- phries marshalled a good many of the chuckles with his portrayal of the blustering Sergeant of Police. "The Pirates of Penzance'1" continues this evening at the Yatss.

'Pmzgauer breeders future looks The president of the South African Pinzgauer Breeders Association feels his counter- parts in Canada have a bright future. Berti Van Zyl, who owns the largest integrated farming and ranching company in South Africa, is on a world- wide tour of agricultural faci- lities, seeking improvements for his operation. Alberta host Walter V. Boras of Picture Butte, presi- dent of the Canadian Pinz- gauer Association, guided Mr. Van Zyl through several feed- lots in Southern Alberta. Mr. Van Zyl said the live- stock feeding systems in South Africa are adequate but he is interested in im- proving his selection of ani- mals for the feedlot, the sel- ection of finished animals and methods of programing feed needs for various animals for opuiiiiuin. Mr. Boras was part of a group of men who introduced Pinzgauer cattle to North America. The first purebred calf in Canada is expected in December. Mr. Van Zyl said Pinzgauer cattle are being used exten- sively in his operation to pro- duce hardy animals which produce high quality beef. He is breeding them primarily 1o South Africa's domest i c breed, the Africaner. Growth stimulants such as ralgro or diethylslilbestrol (DES) aren't regislerd for use in South Africa so feedlot operators can't use them to improve the growth produc- tion of the cattle. With head of cattle fed each year for slaughter, the livestock end of the pp- e-ation is a major portion of his company. But he also grows 300 acres cf tomatoes in a year-round cropping operation. He mar- kets product from about 30 acres each month. He also has an extensive potato operation, farming 300 acres with sprnkler irriga- tion systems. Both tomatoes and potatoes are high labor intensive crops in South Africa and to fill the labor requirements, he em- plcys about 100 people from surrounding communit i e s near his Northern Transvaal ranch. The workers are expected to pick 45.000 pounds of toma- toes each year, mainly for the Johannesburg market. The workers are paid ?1 35 per day, plus meals and lodg- ing- He said labor is used ex- tensively because mechanisa- tion isn't developed to the stage that it can be used to gain the same profit mar- gins. "We always are working to- ward mscharization but until the positive factors of equip- ment outweight those of labor, v.e will continue to enroloy human he said. There is a turnover of 30 per cent of his black workers each month but this doesn't present a problem because of the large supply of men. Corn, used to feed live- stock, is the other major crop grown en his ranch. Work has started on miles of Highway 3 from Pearce to Fort Macleod, in- cluding a new high speed curve at the eastern end of the construction area. Everall Construction Ed- monton Ltd. has been award- ed ths tender for work to be completed Aug. 31. Work includes widening the shoulders and building up the surface area. An accident on the stretch of road from Pearce to Fort Maclecd claimed the life of a Lethbridge man earlier this year and a subsequent coron- er's jury recommended that the road be upgraded. A previous accident, in the same vicinity claim sd the lives of seven persons. Bob Wilson, resident engi- neer for the project, sa.d the Pearce curve will be finished first, bringing it to the de- signed speed oi the read. Work has also started at Seven Persons, 12 miles west of Medicine Hat. with a simi- lar shoulder widening a nd paving operation for the east- ern portion of Highway 3. About 12 miles will be com- pleted this summer, accord- ing to the Medicine Hat dis- trict engineer for the provin cial department of highways. Kalph Spicer. highways committee chairman for the Lethbridge Chamber of Com- merce, said he is glad 19 miles of Highway 3 will be upgraded this year. He said the chamber would like to see the entire High- way 3 upgraded from the B C. border to Medicine Hat. "We have heard it will be done in a seven-year program but this is too long." He said there is a safety factor on some parts of the highway because there isn't any side shoulders at all. Jack Stephanson, chairman of the highways committee for the Medicine Hat Cham- ber of Commerce, told The Herald he is happy with the 12 miles of construction on Highway 3 and a planned 12 miles of paving on Highway 43 south of Medicine Hat to the U.S. border. The chamber had been ne- gotiating with the provincial government to have Highway 48 completed this year to en- courage a greater number of Americans to shop at Medi- cine Hat. Mr. Stephanson said the ether 24 miles of Highway 48 will likely be graded and pre- for paving in 1974. He said Southern Alberta had been over-looked too long by the highways budget, that the area was 10 years behind in highway construction. Both chambers in southern Alberta and the Fernie Cham- ber of Commerce are contin- uing a drive to have the rest cf the Highway 3 upgraded as soon as possible. The Lethbridge chamber committee will meet soon to plan resolutions to present to Highways Minister Clarence Ccpithorne this fall. Greet Mother's Day Gift 5-PIECE Project em] At least 33 Indian students won't have to worry about the annual spring search for employment, thanks to a De- partment of Indian Affairs summer employment pro- gram. The six-week program will begin July 2 and will em- ploy 18 Blood and 15 Peigan Indian students. The students will be hired to work ca the reserves doing whatever the band councils think needs assistance. The students will then be match- ed to the jobs. Priority will be given to students in Grade 12, but others may be picked from Grade 10 and Grade 11 if need be, says Peter Kawes- ki. superintendent of voca- tional training for the de- partment in Lethbridge. The program's operations last year included assisting the welfare office with their case load, helping carpenters repair homes, organiz ing sporting activities and work- ing on projects designed to beautify the reserves. The program will pay the students SI 90 an hour for their services.
