They are being built by GM in London and MLW - Worthing-ton in Montreal. The U.S. diesels are being leased for periods of three to five months, Mr. Olson said, during the slack time for the U.S. railroads. Ten of the leased diesels have been operating out of Calgary and at least four of the big. blue units have been in Lethbridge. Units in this area are from the Bangor and Aroostook Railroad (BAR) in Maine. U.S. DIESEL ON LETHBRIDGE TRACKS - A peak year in the freight business has left CP Rail short in the power department.

PHONE 327-2822 UofL 'not interested? in LCC affiliation By RON CALDWELL Staff Writer The University of Lethbridge is not interested in an affiliation arrangement with the Leth-b ridge Community College, says Jack Oviatt, registrar at the U of L. Mr. Oviatt said it would be a logical step for LCC to become affiliated with some university if the college wanted its students to be able to transfer. "They must approach the colleges commission and work out an affiliation agreem e n t with some university." Mr. Oviatt said the natural affiliation for the college would be with the U of L, but "we are not interested in talking WEEKEND SPECIAL FAMILY DINNER FOR 2 ADULTS AND 2 CHILDREN  Chicken Chow Mein  Sweet and Sour Spareribs  Deep Fried Shrimps, Breaded or Pineapple Chicken  Chicken Fried Rice ALL FOR ONLY ......... 3 .95 Delivered to Your Home - Piping Hotl Open Weekdays 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. PHONE THE 327-0240 327-2297 LOTUS Across From The CPR Depot about affiliation right now." "We need our first and second year students. If we were affiliated, our enrolment problem would be worse than it is now." Mr. Oviatt rejected the idea that the university could solve the enrolment problem by accepting LCC graduates. "There would be an initial increase of poor students, and we don't want that," he said. "The total enrolment would not be large enough to make a noticeable difference." Mr. Oviatt said the courses offered at LCC are not of the same calibre as those at the university, and "there is no way that most of those students could cope" if they entered university at the third-year level. He said he feels the college "is interested in growth for growth's sake - they want to grow into a large institution." He charged that the college bat misrepresented itself to students and potential students, in order to increase enrolment. \ see us for fast, expert PHOTO
