Another chamber spokesman told The Herald, "We had some opening weekend problems, but they were confined to the townsile campgrounds and were not nearly as bad as those re- ported by radio stations in Lethbridgc and Calgary."

D. Stewart, president of the Lethbridge Community College, says he does not agree with the major recommenda- tion of the Byrne Report on un- rest at the Red Deer College.

Reports of bud conditions at the park apparently resulted' from a very crowded condition at the campgrounds.

None of the problems during Lhe opening weekend of the park were new, nor were they considered of major proportions by park personnel. Stewart, "To get rid of everybody and put one man in charge is ridi- culous." He said the recommendation is not compatible with the min- ister's financial policy for the colleges because such a move al Red Deer would probably cost more instead of less. Dr. Stewart expressed con- cern thai the government hasn't made up its mind about what to do with the unsettled situation m Red Deer. "It is essential that the gov- ernment take whatever action it is going to right away and get rid of this feeling of uncer- j tainty."

College transfer arranged Some progress lias been made on the touchy issue of students transferring from one Alberta post secondary insti- tution to another. Dr. C. D. Stewart, LCC president, said Friday. He said the colleges have fi- nalized an agreement whereby students can transfer within t h e system, with the sending institution determining what credits the student takes to the new college. However, there has been no change as far as college-to-uni- versity transfers arc concern- ed. The universities still are sticking by their stand thai they should have the right to determine what credits a new student should have for work done at a community college. "We had a meeting with the University of Lethbridge re- cently and they are still not prepared to accept our stand (that the sending institution should have the right to say what credits a student has) but I think we are making pro- said Dr. Stewart.
