Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 7, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta
Monday, October LETHBRIDGE Dateline Alberta Alberta will benefit Oil is behind Calgary boom Cow town image is gone Protesters to eat again (CP) The federal Energy Minister has assured Alberta officials that higher natural gas export prices will benefit gas producers and the provinces in which the gas originates, says Bill Dickie, provincial Mines and Minerals Minister.. Mr. Dickie, Intergovern- mental Affairs Minister Don Getty and Industry and Commerce Minister Fred Peacock met with the federal Energy Minister, Donald MacDonald, earlier this week. Mr. Dickie said the National Energy Board now is seeking- submissions on the mechanics of implementing the price increase, and the federal government will stipulate that higher prices accrue to the producers. Ottawa recently announced that natural gas export prices will increase to per thou- sand cubic feet, effective Jan. 1, 1975. Mr. Getty said Alberta, which raised its royalties recently, will apply the current royalty formula to the higher export prices. However, he did not know how much extra revenue the province will actually derive from the higher export gas price. Elections to go ahead FORT McMURRAY, Alta. (CP) Civic elections will proceed normally despite a court decision disqualifying the board chairman, says Bruce Matieka, the town's Returning Officer. Chuck Knight, one of eight candidates running for the seven man board, was dis- qualified from the board Thursday under a ruling by Judge W. J. Haddad in Ed- monton. The board has only seven seats, leading to speculation it would be elected by acclamation. However, Mr. Matieka says he will proceed with plans for the Oct. 16 election with all original candidates on the ballot unless otherwise ad- vised. New York Times Service CALGARY, Alberta With oil gushing out of the ground all around it, with dozens of gleaming skyscrapers going up, and with a population that has doubled in the last 14 years, Calgary has become the glamour spot of Western Canada, a crossroads of wealth and commerce. But some of its half million people, yearning for the friendly old days when the place used to be called are worried about the changes, and in a municipal election campaign that is just winding up, they are asking what comes next. "Take a look at Detroit, if you want to see what can happen here in an aldermanic candidate, John Groarke, warned at a political meeting the other night. "We've got to have respect for the people, in all this growth that's going on." Pointing to the United States as a horri- ble example of this or that, with the at- titude, "There, but for the grace of God, goes is nothing unusual in this country: The Mayor of Victoria, British Columbia, likes to show visitors snapshots of ugly developments in San Francisco and Philadelphia, and a citizens' group called "Save Montreal" says it is trying to keep that city from becoming "another New York." But in the view of some people here, Calgary is already one of the country's most American style cities, not only because 3 per cent of its residents were born in the United States, the biggest proportion of any large city. But also because of what Jerry D'Arcy, a naturaliz- ed Canadian originally from Texas, calls Calgary's "oil atmosphere." "It's a real open feeling that you also get in Dallas and Tulsa, and other cities that were developed by explained D'Arcy, an oil executive. "It's the tradition of not giving a damn who a guy's father was, but respecting him for what he accomplishes himself." With Alberta producing 83 per cent of Canada's oil, more than 300 petroleum and natural gas corporations have opened headquarters in Calgary, making this the country's third most important head of- fice city, after Toronto and Montreal. "Everything here seems to revolve around the oil industry even the charities, the symphony, the cancer D'Arcy said. A popular bumper sticker proclaims: "Oil feeds my family and pays my taxes." "Inflation is not really a big worry in said one of the candidates in the Oct. 16 election, at which the city will choose 12 aldermen and decide whether to give Mayor J. Rodney Sykes, in office for- five years, another term. Unlike the election in Toronto two years ago, when David E. Crombie was elected mayor on an antidevelopment platform the Calgary campaign has not made development a central issue. In fact, some Calgarians think it says something about their city that all the major mayoral can- didates here have backgrounds in real es- tate development or investment. The election does, however, include a referendum on a plan to annex 125 square miles of ranch land beyond the city's limits, nearly doubling its area, and that has inspired discussion of the whole sub- ject of growth. EDMONTON (CP) Nine of the original 15 members of a group of students at the University of Alberta have been forced to abandon their hunger strike protesting the imprisonment of Soviet historian Valentyn Moroz, a spokesman said Sunday. Bohdan Romaniuk, spokesman for the group that started their fast Sept. 30, said that the students had con- tinued their regular courses of study at the same time and this had "taken its toll." "The average weight loss has been between eight and 14 Mr. Romaniuk said. However, the nine students advised to abandon their fast on the advice of a physi- cian were replaced by two new participants during the weekend making the total remaining eight, he said. Their diet, prescribed by Dr Dennis Kreptul, is water, salt tablets and vitamin pills. Mr. Romaniuk said public response has been "ex- with visits and sup- port from four Alberta MLAs, three Ukrainian Catholic and Orthodox church bishops and representatives of several community organizations. When not attending classes, the hunger strikers gather in the Student's Union Building on campus. The group is asking that all three levels of government apply pressure to have Mr. Moroz, now believed in the 99th day of his own hunger strike, released. The students also want an impartial medical team allowed to ex- amine the 38 year old historian. The action by the Alberta students is only one of several at Canadian universities this fall in support of Mr. Moroz, Mr. Romaniuk said. "So far there has been one at York in Toronto, Waterloo at Kitchener, Ont., and one starts today at Brock Univer- sity in St. Catharines, Ont." A petition, which will be sent to Ottawa, urging the MANY ON THE PROWL There are an estimated 000 wild or unowned cats in Rome defence of civil rights and liberties in the Soviet Union has collected more than 500 signatures, Mr. Romaniuk said EVER-UTE ELECTRIC LTD.

The 54-page report released by the university's Women's Research Collective is based on interviews with a random selection of female students during the 1973-74 academic year Those interviewed said the process of channelling women into low-paid, low-prestige service work begins at birth and is reinforced at university UNITED MOTORS CO.

"They come to feel pow- erless before this channelling process that wastes so much of their potential." In response to a question on the attitude of classmates to- ward female students in a predominantly male environ- ment, an interviewee said: "At first they didn't know what I was doing. There's al- ways some reference in a classroom situation to gentle- men, and lady. I had one in- structor who put something on the board and he'd always address me and ask me if I un- derstood. I ended up dropping the course." Other female students criti- cized the attitude of professors who either viewed them as "frivolous sex kittens" or "just another pret- ty face" and discounted the idea that they were in class to achieve intellectual and academic goals. Women are made to feel less competent than male stu- dents and consequently begin to think of themselves as be- ing less adequate and capable than men, said the re- searchers. "It took me until about the third year to realize that I had every right to go into my prof's office, look him in the eye and say I don't like it" Professors and classmates were faulted for being unable to see, define and relate to women -as equal participants in the educational experience. Interviewees said that where ambition and intellec- tual aggression are valued and' encouraged in men, they are criticezed in a woman. One student recalled: "When I was doing my study I had to get permission from one psychology professor to let me use his classes. I had to sit there and explain to him what my project was about and the processes involved. "He sat there, listening and humming, and be leaned back in bis chair and said: "Yon know, I find you a very am- bitions woman, very am- bitious, not the type of woman I am attracted to at all." Many women students feel that two major areas need to be changed to equalize educational opportunities at the university level. One bask change would be to hire more female staff as teachers and researchers on the university level. This would encourage other women to become involved in education. But the first factor most be recognition on the part of professors and department heads that female students are discriminated against BOB TARLECK WILL: IMp to davilop n Konomfc policy which shows i mlistic conconi for flu problms of urban growth in tho 70's.
