Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 5, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Education costs easing up bank indicates in review I MONTREAL (CP) Capital costs for Canada's education system are levell- ing off and the system is heading into a decade of relative calm after the fran- tic growth of the 1950s and 1960s, says the Bank of Mon- treal's October business review. Total enrolment has tapered off, the number of teachers is declining and schools are con- solidating or closing. It is a trend to be welcomed, the review says. "Not only will it supply some much-needed relief to the hardpressed taxpayer (unless, of course, the slack is taken up in other areas of government but it also affords the educational authorities an opportunity to further upgrade the quality of education." As the pressures of the post- war baby boom ease, there is no longer the need for exten- sive building of schools in the elementary and secondary level. Cow-calf producers aid proposal solidly backed EDMONTON (CP) A spokesman for the National Farmers Union (NFU) says farmers have shown they are "solidly behind" an NFU proposal that assistance be granted to cow-calf producers on the basis of per calf to a maximum of 75 calves. Bill Dascavich said reaction from nearly farmers at meetings at Lac La Biche, Mayerthorpe, Vilna, Dappand Evansburg has been one of disappointment over the provincial government's _ failure to develop markets as had been promised at the time livestock production initiative programs were introduced. About 175 farmers at Evan- sburg voted unanimously to reject the provincial government's counter proposal of seeking federal government aid to provide cash advances to cow-cals producers, he said. Several farmers voiced op- position to a loan program on grounds it could only lead producers into debt without any assurance the ultimate price they would receive would cover their production costs, he said.

APPLY TO: Box 42, Lethbridge Herald At the post-secondary level much of the recent spending involved construction of necessary facilities at hefty capital costs, a process the review says is mainly com- pleted. The review says that during most of the last two decades, educational spending increas- ed at a real annual rate of more than 10 per cent. "More recently, it would ap- pear that there has been no appreciable increase in real spending on education, with the average annual increase in current terms running only slightly ahead of the rate of price increases." The review says that if Canadian population projec- tions hold true, pressures on elementary and secondary schools should continue to ease until about 1985. After that, the "very young" school age population would begin to expand again and increases in spending would recur. In the next 10 years, enrol- ment in post-secondary in- stitutions should also ease. The review says that many of these are already having a hard time attracting students. However, the growing interest in part-time study, which tripled in the last 10 years, should cushion the drop in overall post-secondary enrolment. The review says that with the general drop in enrolment, the demand for teachers has also fallen off. "Preliminary data for the present school year show a de- cline of 1.3 per cent to in the number of elementary and secondary teachers, and such a trend should continue for the remainder of this decade." The number of schools is de- clining as well. Canada had about secondary and elementary schools in 1967, compared with about this year. Fuel-oil steak may soon be dinner item MENDOZA, Argentina (Reuter) In Argentina, one of the most important beef- producing countries in the world, a three-man scientific team has joined in the race to produce an edible and accept- able fuel-oil steak. Similar experiments are be- ing conducted in other countries. Should the scientists, head- ed by Prof. Fuad Abdala Neme, succeed in their objec- tive, they may have found the answer to the world's food syn- thetic proteins to keep man- kind's snowballing millions from starving. In two years of research, the Argentine team has suc- cessfully produced edible pro- tein from fuel-oil residue and rats and chickens have been thriving on it for three months. The chickens are happily laying eggs as if on a normal diet, reported Neme. It is not particularly appe- tizing dry, whitish powder with no its nutritious value is such that a pound of the powder contains as much protein as five pounds of fresh-cut beef. It can be textured and fla- vored to look and taste like beef, chicken, pork or lamb, Neme said. To produce the protein, he takes the residue from fuel-oil production and ferments it with bacteria. "This is no scientific break- said the 43-year-old r professor. Biosynthesis is be- Cing practised in many coun- tries." But it was only lately been developed with the aim of producing food for mankind. Neme began his research two years ago in a laboratory at the university engineering faculty in this western city- capital of Argentina's chief wine-growing province. He started with' a government grant. Since then, local inhabitants have jok- ingly dubbed the laboratory the "petrol-steak factory." For raw materials, he uses fuel-oil residue from the nearby Lujan de Cuyo re- finery, plus bacteria He calculates that only 2.5 per cent of the oil produced at the refinery would produce some tons of synthetic food annually. And it would have certain advantages over normal food: can be produced times faster than raising cat- tle and sheep. does not rot. The Men- doza protein has been kept in open glasses for two years without deteriorating, mean- ing easy bulk transport and storage. can be used to help curb obesity, and has already been developed along these lines in France. Human daily requirements for proteins are contained in one pound of beef. Less than four ounces of the powder dressed up into a "steak" would provide the same amount of protein. But Neme said there are still problems to be worked out before mass production of oil steaks can begin. Doctors and dietitians will have to find an answer to the hunger pangs people will feel after eating their theoretical- ly sufficient but meagre syn- thetic meals.
