Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 7, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta University open files protested EDMONTON The University of Alberta science faculty tas registered with the concept of unrestricted access by academic staff to career files. It asked a special meeting of the general faculties coun- the body which decides academic to recon- sider its approval of the open files concept. The council last February recommended that unrestricted file access be given to about university staff memebers. The science faculty asked for reconsideration view of the problems that have become apparent in applying this policy within the No further details were given. The council had been ready to give final approval to the policy at Monday's meeting. As a result of the science faculty's it merely discussed and approved methods of implementing the which would see free access by academic staff members to signed documents used as a basis for career decisions affecting them. In other the coun- cil's executive committee was told by university solicitor John Dea that the council has no disciplinary- power over academic staff under the Universities Act Despite signs of fuel crisis restraint gets low priority By PETER BUCKLEY WASHINGTON The spectre of a painful energy shortage for the United States grows by the to cope with it are multiplying in government but cutting down voluntarily on the use of fuel still seems to get a low priority from the planners. Part of the reason lies in the Nixon administration's chronic distate for or attempting to per- suade the public to follow a particular course.' But another part lies in what Washington likes to call the Those same realities have dogged almost every effort to cope with an energy shortage which has been widely viewed as inevitable for nearly three years. Both the administration and Congress are currently jock- eying to avoid being the first to produce legislation that would give the U.S. govern- ment power to cope with this winter's threatened shortage of heating oil and other fuels BOLD STEP SHUNNED Always reluctant to be the first to present the public with bad news neither the Demo- cratic-controlled Congress nor the Republican administra- tion has yet produced the sort of legislation which both sides privately concede is months overdue. The cut-off of oil from the Middle East as a result of U.S. support for Israel has worsen- ed the prospects of winter shortage. Even before the Arab producers turned off the there were forecasts that oil supplies would be tight and that legislation would be essential to channel available supplies to the neediest customers. Energy who calcu- late the U.S. wastes between 25 and 40 per cent of its energy have tried for years to interest the industry and the public in a serious conserva- tion program. So the reaction has been barely visible. APPEAL SOFTENED President Nixon and his chief energy advisers have made occasional appeals to the public to save on energy but most of their public statements and actions have been directed the need for more offshore relaxed air quality rapid passage by Congress of a trans Alaska pipeline bill and greater incentives for the oil and gas industry. ment office buildings have become as some of the lights are removed and Treasury Secretary George Shulti has let it be known that he has-turned off one of his desk lamps. The airlines have reduced some a move they were hoping to make anyway because of unfilled seating capacity. And many public utilities have appealed to customers to lower their ther- mosts and seal their windows to conserve fuel. But measures such as those ordered Governor Tom McCall of including a part-time ban on display lighting and possible changes in the school are still regarded here as steps that few politicians of national standing would risk suggesting. ROAD BAN UNLIKELY the Dutch solution banning' Sunday a move which is estimated may save 19 per cent of the Netherlands' dwindling gasoline supply. The accepted political wisdom here is that efectlvt action to curb the profligate ble until fuel shortages actual- ly begin to be felt by the general public. By many experts it will be too late to arrange a distribution system that may prevent factories and schools from shutting down and hard-hit regions in the winter belt of the northern U.S from running short of es- sential fuels.

DON'T MISS DUNLOP'S OFF-LOCATION BIINGO POPULAR PASTIME OTTAWA a word usually associated with one-arm ban- dits and has new meaning in an ever-popular national pastime The participants do not wear tuxedos and evening dresses and they don't carry wads of thousand dollar bills. In you'd have trouble convincing innocent bingo pa- trons that what they are doing is gambling. The game is pursued as en- thusiastically in Ottawa as in Dther communities across the country. Locations range From church basements to tiockey arenas and some are utilized six nights a week. A regular bingo player may trap across searching for the best cheapest and best atmosphere. Loretta Villon of Ottawa leads for the local bingo palace as soon as dinner dis- ties are day of the week but Sunday. Although she admits she loses more than she she is undiscouraged After her daughter has won more than in two months. While the bingo beginners are content to sit back with a couple or three the more experienced need more. SOME OFFER CARS A woman with 16 cards zips over them in the time it takes the rookie to cover three. Practice makes perfect. While most bingo halls con- centrate on ground nights with o'ne or two jackpot some reaching other establishments lure even non-bingo fanatics with prizes of new cars. But that doesn't happen too often And most of the crowd will go home disappointed. Like the lady who covered all but one number in 10 consecutive games without winning. That's frustration. Heartbreak or the regu- lars will be back time and time again. Bingo has become more than a casual pastime. They actually enjoy it. When it's all lost markers and used cards litter the floor. More losers than winners vacate the hall But as Mrs. Villon puts don't always expect to win It's a not a busi- ness Workers kicked in the chest EDMONTON A cor- oner's jury attached no blame in the death of a horse- processing plant employee who was kicked in the chest by a horse Sept 26.
