Tuesday, November 19, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 3 Dateline Alberta Courses plan advanced EDMONTON (CP) Courses at the University of Alberta could be offered at rural communities through computer assisted instruc- tion coupled with two-way video communication, says university president Harry Gunning In his report to fall con- vocation, Dr. Gunning said specific courses now available only at the Edmonton campus could be of benefit to many people in small towns. "We would like to move the university out to them. "The student could work at his console in his hometown, and when he ran into dif- ficulties he could video- communicate with his instruc- tor in Edmonton." In another example of ex- panded community services, Dr. Gunning said the universi- ty was considering the crea- tion of a management ad- visory institute to "work on specific problems faced by Alberta businessmen."

The list, spanning a period from June to November, 1973, was included in Dr. Viljoen Kritzinger's final report as chief of staff to the hospital board. Dr. Kritzinger, who testified Monday, mentioned two alleged cases of neglect that almost proved fatal. The unrelated cases involved a woman and a baby. He said the hospital's direc- tor of nursing appeared more interested in the cost of providing special care for the woman than in making sure the necessary care was provided. Trains rolling again EDMONTON (CP) The first train in more than two years moved over the Alberta Resources Railway (ARR) line Monday following com- pletion of costly repairs to flooded sections of the track. Restoration of service on the crown owned railway represented the end of one headache for the provincial government, but the resump- tion of another how to operate it in the black. The ARR, which runs from Brule, 180 miles west of Ed- monton, in a northerly direc tion to Grande Cache and Grande Prairie, is operated by Canadian National Railways under a contract with the province. Built to connect the Grande Cache coal fields with the CNR mam line and open up resource development in northwestern Alberta, it was a money losing operation from the start. When former premier Ernest Manning announced plans to build the 234-mile line in 1965. its projected cost was million. By the time trains began rolling over it in 1969, the cost had more than doubl- ed to million. According to the most re- cent calculations, the ARR's total debt was million, with interest charges alone hitting million a year. The first warning of flood damage came in 1971, when the Smoky River flooded parts of the line. The next year, numerous and lengthy washouts shut the railroad down completely. Estimates of damage ranged between million and million. For a year the railway line was in limbo as the govern- ment and CNR argued over who should pay for its restoration Spacecraft snaps photos MOUNTAIN VIEW. Calif.
