John T. Sweeney of Montreal, executive secretary of the Ca- nadian Sugar Institute is pay- ing his first visit to Lethbridge. A native of Trochu, Alta., Mr. Sweeney told The Herald he wanted, to have a thorough look at sugar beet harvesting and refining operations while he was in the region this week. "Everywhere I Mr. Sweeney said, "I find that peo- ple generally just aren't aware of the importance of the sugar industry in Canada. "The Canadian Sugar indus- try is a million a year in- dustry. Its 11 manufacturing units and employees pro- duce two billion pounds of white, brown, liquid and invert sugar per year for household and industrial use." Eighty-five per cent of the sugar refined in Canada, ac- cording to Mr. Sweeney, is from raw cane sugar. The remaining 15 per cent is from sugar beet operations in Quebec, Manitoba and Alberta.

The CSI keeps in close touch with similar organizations throughout the world in order to exchange information and views on subjects that' affect sugar policies at the interna- tional level. "And, you would be sur- prised at how much interest there is in southern Alberta sugar beet refining at the inter- national according to Mr. Sweeney. "Sugar beet operations pro- vide not only a great direct, but many indirect and tertiary benefits to the economy and well-being of this part of the country. "It's important that we keep the highest possible standards and produce the highest qual- ity product possible to meet in- ternational competition. Through technological improve- ments and increased productiv- ity we've managed to do this and still keep the price to the consumer at near wartime levels.

By JIM WILSON Herald Education Writer The University of Lethbridge Students' Society Council Wed- nesday came down hard on hints of further contraventions of the War Measures Act by student newspaper staff mem- bers and has ordered the paper's printers not to print any material which could be illegal. The result, according to city police officials, is that no po- lice action is now contemplat- ed regarding distribution Wed- nesday morning of about copies of The Meliorist, At a special public SSC meet- ing late Wesnesday, council president Robin Dann told stu- dents and council members that police had considered vis- iting the campus following the newspaper's distribution but had been dissuaded by U cf L administration officials. Mr. Dann said police Inspec- tor R. D. Miehelson had then been asked to attend a hastily- arranged meeting at the home of U of L Vice-President Dr. Bill Beckel, with Dr. Beckel, university President Dr. Sam Smith and Mr. Dann. Mr. Dann undertook at the meeting to assure there woulc be no continued publication o FLQ material which had been planned for Friday. H< also undertook to assure tha' until the SSC met, he -would order the newspaper's printer not to do any work on the spe cial Meliorist edition. The special council meeting ratified his action. He reported some of the con tents of a telephone conversa tion between Dr. Smith and Al berta Attorney General Edgar Gerhart, which Mr. Dann said "made. very clear" the attor- ney general's displeasure with The Meliorist's distribu- tion. In a Herald interview, Mr. Gerhart said the newspaper's distribution was "definitely ac- tionable" and that it was pos- sible Lethbridge city police would be forced to take action against students responsible. He said statements made either by bis department or anyone else that Alberta offi- cials would not have jurisdiction in a War Measures Act matter were "entirely and added "the administration of justice in this province is solely under the attorney .general's department." He termed publication of FLQ material after the War Mea- sures Act was invoked "totally irresponsible, and an act which only pertains to aiding and abetting the FLQ. on the people doing it. Anyone dabbling ia publication of FLQ material is committiEg a crime, and I think it's abun- dantly clear we're going to have to take Mr. Ger- hart said. He told Dr. Smith, however, he would not likely press the matter here if guarantees were given by student officials that there would be no repeat of their publication. Insp. Miehelson said he had at first taken the word of U of L students the paper would not be distributed, but had sent a routine report Monday to Mr. Gerhart according to normal police policy. A supplementary report. was also sent Wednesday following the paper's distribution, through Mr. Gerhart's Leth- bridge representative, Vaughan Hartigan, but Mr. Gerhart has made no recommendation re- garding police action as of yet. Insp. Miehelson said that no matter what Mr. Gerhart's rec- ommendation is, the Students' Society Council action Wednes- day afternoon would almost certainly mean no local action will be taken, "so the situa- tion is ended." Meliorist acting editor Allan Wilson plans now to wait until next week's regular edition be- fore printing other Quebec in- formation he has all of it entirely legal. It will-include a general summary of Quebec economic, political and other problems in recent years, and a summary of separatist activi- ties which gives a background for the current crisis there. He told The Herald there will be no mention of FLQ program statements. The 50 students at Wednes- day's meeting did not Indicate they were entirely in favor of the federal government's invo- cation of the War Measures Act, even though they support- ed the SSC's ban on publica- tion of FLQ material. They will hold a special and well publicized meeting Oct. 27 to discuss what should be official U of L student policy and action concerning the act's use, which they say violates the university's philosophy of freedom. The meeting was also attend- ed by Dr. Smith, Dr. Beckel and Dr. Owen Holmes, dean of arts and who wers present as observers only. Students voted to send a tele- gram to the Laporte family "expressing our very sincere grief over the tragedy which has affected their family and our whole nation." Junior Achievement Launched City Youth In Business "I wouldn't be approving of police action in any other area under that Mr: Gerhart continued but in the case of any FLQ material it is a serious matter. "How can I really tell if there are FLQ members or agitators in Alberta or in Leth- bridge, or if this sort of publi- cation is 'only some kids play- ing games? "In the light of the blood- thirsty killing of Pierre La- pprte this type of action is ob- viously some kind of reflection By RIC SWIHART Herald Staff Writer Junior Achievement of Sout ern Alberta, Lethbridge is no a reality.
