Watch For Listings Of Regular Tuesday Evening Sale Oct. 9th In Tuesday's Herald Auctioneer: John Btrczay No. 903 Tin1 government policy, ex- pected to be in effect by Jan. 1. 1974. is to ensure that students have the opportunity to enter post-secondary education m Alberta and are able to transfer from one in- stitution to another. Or Bill Beckel. U of L president, said in an interview that the university is aware of the transfer problems and is willing to co-operate in obtain- ing a solution to the problems. Dr. C. D. Stewart, LCC president, in a prepared release Thursday said he hoped that "it is common knowledge that LCC personnel have pursued the transfer with considerable vigor." The U of L and LCC ad- ministrators have been dis- cussing the problem involved in transferring a student from one institute to the other dur- ing the last tew months, but have not been able to reach an agreement. Dr. Beckel said the two in- stitutions have been "making real progress." but have not been able to finalize correct transfer procedures. Dr Stewart also felt the in- stitutes have been "making considerable progress." He noted that the LCC and U of L administrators had an "ex- cellent meeting" pertaining to transfers Wednesday Dr. Beckel welcomed government involvement in the search for a solution to the transfer problem. He says he looks forward to a meeting of all post- secondary institutes and the government because he believes it gives the institutes a chance to put "all the problems on the table." "The government may act as a stimulus for an eventual solution." he said. Jim Foster, minister of ad- vanced education, when mak- ing the announcement. Thurs- day said that the policy adopted by the government will protect the integrity of the selective admission and transfer policies and procedures which are now in effect at the post-secondary institutions Members ol the department of advanced education and representatives of the in- stitutions have been meeting to develop an initial set of general policies covering stu- dent and institutional concerns Once policies have been developed. Mr Foster said further meetings will be held for the purpose of developing guidelines for implementation of the policy The department also intends to develop a method of monitoring the effects ot transferabihty policies and a means by which the policies may be able to be revised on a regular basis. Mr Foster said. "The problems associated with transferability must be resolved if we are to create a system of continuous and recurring education without artificial hurdles and un- necessary barriers to students." he suggested. Dr Beckel said he was "confident that something will be worked out that will be satisfactory to the students and the institution." "I couldn't guess what the final policy will be." but he said he knows that what ever the solution the U of L will have had a "good input" into obtaining it. PHARMACY FACTS FROM 0. C. STUBBS If you've ever wondered just why youve had to wait while we're filhnc your prescription, here's the real reason Of all the ingredients needed for your prescription the time we spend being sure it is compounded cor- rectly for you is of the most importance. We (1) make sure of the drug quantity, potency and stability. (2) call your doc- tor if his authorization is necessary for its refilling, (3) prepare your label, (4) enclose it in the correct- sized container, and (5) then make a written rec- ord showing your doc- tor's name, the date, the drug prescribed and the amount given to you.

Project for drunk drivers Trying to find as many different ways as possible to convince people that drinking and driving don't mix is the object of the Alberta Alcoholism and Drug Com- mission's impaired driving project. Thursday night's session dealt mainly with the legal implications of arrests for and court cases concerning im- paired driving. Guest speakers were Jim Langston of the Crown prosecutor's of- fice and Cnst. Marcel St. Onge of the Lethbridge City Police. Mr Langston explained to the participants in the program that a person can be convicted of impaired driving even if the car is stationary "The fact that the vehicle isn't being operated or can't be operated doesn't matter." he said. "All we have to prove is that you intended to drive the car He said the usual penalty for first offense impaired driving is a fine plus the loss of the offender's driver's license for six months. At the discretion of the judge, a person may be granted a restricted license where driving is essential in his employment. The con- ditions of this exception usual- ly include what type of a vehi- cle may be driven, where it may be driven and the hours in which it may be driven. A convicted impaired driver who operates his vehicle un- der other conditions than these is liable to be convicted of driving while prohibited by the court. A stiff fine and loss of his license for a year can result. Mr. Langston said that of 15 inquests into traffic accidents he has attended, only two did not involve the use of alcohol to some degree. Bus, sports car collide No one was injured Thurs- day morning when a Greyhound bus and a small sports car collided at the in- tersection of Highways 4 and til near Stirling. 20 miles southeast of Lethbridge RCMP said that both vehicles were southbound on Highway 4 when Roger John Kvcrt.' 425 12 Ave. N., attempted to turn onto Highway 61. The vehicles collided and went into the ditch. The bus. driven by Frederick Lee, of Calgary, stayed upright, but the Evert vehicle rolled. Gardens to close The Nikko Yuko Japanese Garden will close for the winter after this weekend. The garden, which will open again May 17. 1974. has had an attendance of about 60.000 to date this vear. Weekend hours are 9 a.m to 5pm. Some ot the 13 passengers in the bus helped turn the Evert car over and assisted Evert and his passenger in getting out. Damage to the Evert car totalled SI.800. and to the bus. 2 men killed Two men were killed in a head-on collision near Medicine Hat Thursday night, RCMP report. The accident occurred on Highway 1 a mile and a half west of Medicine Hat at about p m Names of the vic- tims will not be released until relatives are notified. Medicine Hat RCMP are in- vestigating. "And those dead were not just the drivers." he reminded the group. Many of the participants Thursday were there for the first time, and some tried to get comment on their in- dividual cases. Some of the questions reflected the resentful at- titude which many of the im- paired drivers have at the beginning of the course. It is this attitude which the program attempts to change, says Norman E. Briscoe, moderator of the program. Mr. Briscoe also told the group that anyone coming to the course intoxicated would be turned away. Const. St. Onge explained investigation of traffic ac- cidents, and backed Mr. Langston's observation that many accidents involve alcohol Police are giving drivers a break when they suspend licenses for 24 hours, he said. He explained that a policeman has the discretion of suspending a suspected im- paired driver's license rather than citing him for impaired driving Such a person has the option of taking a breathalyzer test if he does not wish to surrender his license, he said ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC Schwim Bldj 22251H S1-S HIMI 328-4095 FEW THINGS IN LIFE RUN AS WELL AS A VOLKSWAGEN 1966 CHEVROLET S695 4 door vcliln V8 .iiiiomalic radio 1967 FORD 4 door sedan V8 automatic 1968 VIVA S Automatic RAEWOOD MOTORS LTD.

But prime cuts ot meat may cost the consumer a pound before such a balance is struck and many farmers may decide to "tear'up their grass and sow wheat or barley" because of the high price of cereal grains, a local beef feeder predicted Thursday in Lethbridge. Dick Gray, president ot the newly-formed Alberta Cattle Feeders Association, says "urban people and beefeaters are going to have to pay more tor beef to match our feed costs. "It costs us 55 cents to put a pound on an animal and our highest bid today was cents it doesn't take long for the pocket book to become empty at that rate." The answer could be found in the new federal feed grains policy, according to Unifarm president Dobson Lea and Hugh Horner, Alberta's agriculture minister. That policy, however, needs some changes to equalize oppor- tunities for all Canadian farmers, both men claimed during a whirlwind tour of Alberta to kick off agricultural week. A promised visit by Otto Lang, federal minister of the Canadian wheat board and initiator of the new feed grains policy, will be held in Edmonton next week for meetings with both Unifarm and Dr. Horner to work on the mechanics of the policy. Dr. Horner said the recently formed Agricultural Products Board set up to establish a tloor price for feed barley and oats had added nothing more tiian continued uncertainty to the agricultural industry. When all discussions are final- ly finished. Dr. Horner said the floor price announced by Woman hurt A 63-year-old Lethbridge woman was treated for head injuries and released from Lethbridge Municipal Hospital Thursday afternoon after being knocked down by a cat- Mrs. Elizabeth Hunt was crossing 4th Street S.. in the :iOO Block when she was struck by the car driven by Ian Keith Cardiff. 20. 313 24 St. S the federal government will act as a base for a new feed price for all grains not controlled by the wheat board. "Farmers will have three price structures to follow sell to the wheat board, the agricultural products board or through the livestock feeding industry." said Dr. Horner. The agricultural products board price for barley was set at 98 per bushel basis delivery at Thunder Bay or Vancouver. This means about in Lethbridge The figure was reached by adding the wheat board initial price and half the expected final payment farmers share at the end of each crop year The livestock feeders will have to pay the price set for grain, not controlled by the wheat board, said Dr. Horner. "I think this price will settle at about per bushel" he said, which is a little bit above the agricultural products board price. "This will be okay it the teeder knows the price and knows he can get grain at that price but only as long as the price of beef remains high. "Consumers will have to appreciate that live cattle prices will have to be 50 cents a pound plus And this will mean higher meat prices to the consumer Unifarm president Dobson Lea said consumers must con- tinually be made aware ot what proportion of their take- home pay is spent on food. "This will be their only way of understanding rising food costs." he said "This spring Americans had earned their week's groceries bv 4pm every Monday. I don't know what it is today but maybe it takes the entire Monday's work day to earn enough money to pav lor a week's food. "But this is nothing com- pared to people in some countries who spend 2. or 4 davs working juM lo pay tor groceries tor that week." BERGMAN'S FLOOR COVERINGS Ph. 328-0372 2716 12 Ave.'S. E. S. P.
