The recommendation said a minimum of five per cent of positions in quota faculties such as medicine and den- tistry could be open to all applicants without regard to citizenship. The recommendations were forwarded to the university's admissions requirements committee by university president Harry Gunning, who said the general faculties council needs help in dealing with such a "delicate matter."

"Serving vow over a quarter Century'" 302 3rd Soutt fhont 527-2805 City official 'leaned on' EDMONTON (CP) City commissioner George Hughes testified before a judicial in- quiry Monday that he was "leaned on" by developer Eskander Ghermezian during discussions about a develop- ment proposal in the Dicken- sfield area of North Ed- monton in late 1972. Mr. Hughes appeared before the Morrow inquiry into civic affairs, which entered its 29th day Tuesday after a week-long recess. He said Eskander Gherme- zian came to see him in November, 1972, to complain about a proposed development in the Dickensfield area which did not appear to be moving through the city's planning stages. Mr. Hughes testified that Mr. Ghermezian told him that if the proposal was not moved the city would encounter problems in getting access routes and right-of-way for pipelines at the site of a water treatment plant being developed by the city. "I felt I was being used a Mr. Hughes said of the November meet'ng with Mr. Ghermezian He said the negotiations for the water treatment plant were "rather delicate and I didn't want to upset them." "1 didn't particularly appreciate the leverage, the leaning on Mr. Hughes said. The inquiry was called after Aid. Alex Fallow said earlier this year he had been offered a gift from a developer.

Cattle official cool to cash-advance plan EDMONTON (CP) Chris Mills, secretary of the Cana- dian Cattlemen's Association, Monday criticized a sugges- tion by the four premiers that an emergency cash-advance program be un- dertaken for cow-calf operators. The association does not believe a cash-advance program is a good idea because by this time next year the return will likely be no better, he said in an inter- view. Producers would have made additional investments in feed, and they would also have the cash advances to repay. The premiers of the four provinces Friday asked for payments of per calf with the provinces possibly con- tributing up to half the cost. They said that without assistance, the west faces widespread liquidation of beef herds which could be followed next spring by another in- crease in prices. Mr Miffs said, however, that he believes the problem will last far beyond next spring. There is a problem of over supply of cattle, and it could last for two years, he said. He said the cattlemen's association would favor any program that could help the cash position of cow-calf operators without forcing them into a holding position. Bill Dascavich, regional co- ordinator of the National Farmers' Union, said the government should not re- quire producers to hold their animals before providing aid. He said that even if calves were sold off, he didn't think dollars would bring returns up to the cost of production "but it would cer- tainly help to see them through." Both men said livestock production was over- stimulated by such federal measures as interest-free loans, and Mr. Mills added "the government has a moral obligation to the people it pushed into the business to help pull them through."

Killer hangs himself in Montana jail cell BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) Four mysterious slayings over a seven-year period apparent- ly have been solved, Gallatin County officials said today. However, a 25-year-old han- dyman who confessed to the killings over the weekend, hanged himself in his jail cell. County Attorney Thomas Olson said David Meirhofer of Manhattan, a southcentral community of 800 persons, was arrested Friday and charged with kidnapping and homicide in the deaths of Susie Jaeger. 7, of Far- mington Hills. Mich., and Sandra Smallegan. 19, of Manhattan. Olson said Meirhofer also admitted to murdering two young boys. Bernard Poelman, 13, and Michael Raney, 12. The Jaeger girl disappeared from a campground near Three Forks in June, 1973, taken from her family's tent which was found with a hole cut in it. That was the same site where the Raney boy was stabbed to death through a hole in his tent while on a boy scout camping trip several years ago. The Poebnan boy was shot to death as he climbed a bridge near Three Forks about seven years ago and the remains of Mrs. Smallagen were found in the hills above the Missouri River last winter after she disappeared in February from Manhattan.
