Be ready with a pair of Prescription Sunglasses. 382 students graduate in 5th U of L convocation By TION CALUWKU, Herald Staff Writer Saturday was The day in the academic lives of 332 former University of Leth- bridge students. It saw them become the fifth group to pass out of the U of L during spring conv oca lion cere- monies. For some, the wearing of the flat topped hat and flow- ing robe marked the end of a successful journey in search of knowledge. For others, it was the clearing of the first hurdle in what will be a much longer association with the academ- ic world. David Iwassa. an honors graduate from the faculty of arts and science, warned his fellow graduates to remem- ber they have a great responsibility. "There is one point I want to he said, in his ad- dress to the convocation rep- resenting the graduates.. "Nobody owes us anything. Society does not owe fhe graduate a living. The gradu- ate owes it to society to use his knowledge to make that society better. "We have had a unique op- portunity to study in Leth- bridge, now the burden is upon us to prove it was worthwhile. "Our degrees do not obli- gate society but we are obli- gated because we now hold those degrees." Mr. Iwassa said there was once a time when the univer- sity graduate could write his own ticket in the world. But now it is different. Despite tho fact that there more highly- educated people in the wcrld, J .u, uieie are still monu- mental problems to be solved. That task belongs to the graduate, he saiL. The move to a new campus and an unexpected drop in student enrolment were the major events affecting the life of the University of Letli- bridge during the past year, said Dr. Bill Beckel, presi- dent of the U of L, in his ad- dress to the spring convoca- tion. "The move was a long- anticipated event. The new facilities were well planned ar we'1 he raid. Dr. Beckel predicted the Ui...._TSuy will be in full pos- session of its land and have its facilities completed with- in the next year. Commenting on the drop in student enrolment last fall, Dr. Beckel said, "we have been considerably affected by this event." "The University of Lcth- briclge is still a fledgling, highly susceptible to lack of encouragement, to the chill winds of criticism and dis- satisfaction." He said the university's of- ferings are not as com- prehensive as "we beKeve they should be and they must be expanded if we are to con- tinue to do the job a universi- ty exists to do." Dr. Becke! took a verbal potshot at the present gov- ernment method of financing universities. "We are financed by stu- dent numbers, and what a strange situation it is. "We must convince the students to come to our uni- versity with promisory notes. We can only pay off these notes after the students have come. "Surely this is not the way to provide a university edu- cation. He said there are certain basic requirements of a uni- versity education and these must be met if the University of Lethbridge is to do its job. The university Is now wait- ing to see whether these re- quirements will be met, he added. (See also Page AIR CONDITIONING Alcon Refrigeration Ltd.

The plight of farmers in Al-1 berta has worsened and indi-' unual sales have been lost while the provincial and feder- i parliament for Lethbridge, said thc 1roald is tlle permit books for over-delivery of rapeseed, mainly to the Western Canadian Seed Pro- cessors Ltd. plant in Leth- bridge. He said rapeseed is listed on al governments continue fie negotiations to settle the dis- pute on quotas for rapeseed i tnuled to domestic crushing i the permit book and therefore plants i must be assigned acres for Four court cases, stemming hauling to either the country from complaints from the Ca- nadian wheat board that farm- ers had overdelivcred rape- seed in relation to the number of acres that had been assign- ed to the grain, have been de- layed by provincial request. Buck Spencer, a farmer in the Nobleford district, attempt- ed to haul the rest of his wheat remaining on the first two seg- ments of this year's quota but elevators or domestic crushers (listed as an elevator under the Canada Grains Act.) In communication with Al- berta Minister of Agriculture Dr. Hugh Homer. Mr. Gund- lock said the province was tak- ing thc stand that any crop grown and processed in Alberta should not have any inter- ferance from the federal gov- ernment. CWB officials lifted his quota permit book the day before the cancellation of the two seg- ments. This meant that the 200 bushels he had remaining to haul on the A and B sections of the wheat quota were lost for Mr. Spencer because of the loss of his permit book. When a book is lifted by thc CWB, the farmer can he with- out one for up to 14 days. In that time, he can't haul any grain of any type. In this instance, Mr. Spencer said he lost the equivalent of about one month's fuel hill. The only way Mr. Spencer can recover the lost deliveries is if the CWB extends thc wheat quota far enough to en- able him to haul all his sup- Dlies. Mr. Gundlock said the prob- lem this spring results partly from the severe winter condi- tions just past. During the storms, many farmers couldn't deliver rapeseed to the local plant so the plant encouraged as much delivery as possible from farmers who could haul in order to keep operating. Mr. Gundlock has asked Otto Lang, minister in charge of the Canadian wheat board, to give all the permit books back to farmers so they can haul oilier types of grain. He feels the rapeseed problem can he settled later. Approximate- ly 1.500 books have been lifted. "I don't like to see farmers handled this way, he said. "Many farmers, especially straight grain farmers, are at thc bottom of the sconomic Merv Leitch, Alberta attorn- ey general, said this morning that, following Ihe adjournment of the cases, he is waiting until further developments occur be- fore proceeding further.
