Ph. 328-81*1 1705 M.M. Drive Ph. 328-77S1 CP Rail has big year CP Raii is heading for its biggest year ever in the freight transport a t i o n business, The Herald has learned. Mora trains than ever before will be operating this year, said Earl Olson of CP Rail's public relations department in Calgary. Business is so brisk that CP Rail has had to lease 45 diesel units from U.S. railroads. Another 21 units are to be leased. Business this year is higher than expected, Mr. Olson said in a telephone interview. The two most significant elements in the business upsurge are grain and coal movements. The-leased power is costing CP Rail $100 to $350 a day per unit, depending on the size of the engine. CP Rail is to take delivery of 64 new diesels next year. 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. But good outlook U.S. DIESEL ON LETHBRIDGE TRACKS - A peak year in the freight business has left CP Rail short in the power department. To maintain the pace until more diesels are built.

PHONE 327-2822 V of L '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 = H : / 5 ' 5 ^ 7 JE = :i 'i.

"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 bac misrepresented itself to students and potential students, in order to increase enrolment. see us for fast, expert PHOTO NISHIHG Anglo Distributors Stereo t Photographic Centre 419 5th Street South Phone 328-6922 "They are telling students that they can go on to university from there, but they don't tell them the whole picture. "I have had students from there tell me that when they enroled at the college they were led to believe they could jump right intoihe middle of our university." Mr. Oviatt said LCC is attempting to duplicate services provided by the university "by offering what they claim are university courses." "Why should the taxpayer want them to duplicate a service that is already being offered?" He said if LCC wants to become affiliated with a univer- sity so students could trans fer," they should go through the normal channels." "They would have to approach the colleges commission for approval and then work out an agreement with a university. "Why they haven't done this, t don't know," said Mr. Oviatt, Beckel: LCC should operate as college Dr. Bill Beckel, presidentelect of the University of Lethbridge, says the Lethbridge Community College should continue to operate in its present way without trying to become Wonian injured Kathy T.

"But I feel we would have to look at these students on an individual basis. "There is no way to make a blanket evaluation work, at least at the present time." Dr. Beckelf said a way should be found soon to evaluate students at LCC who want to go on to university. "We are most - concerned about the problem," he said. "It is our opinion that there is a need for closer examination of transferability, but we just have not figured out the best way of doing it." MANY STUDENTS There are 7,705 students in the Lethbridge public school system. This is a decrease of 60 students from last year, professional staff of 382 is employed. Few incentive grants for city By RICHARD BURKE Staff Writer Mayor Andy Anderson said he does not expect Lethbridge to receive much benefit from the work incentive program announced last week by the federal government. He qualified the statement, however, by adding projects proposed by the city and the federal government for Lethbridge beyond the work incentive program should be more than enough to keep unemployment figures down for some time. He said there will be adequate money available this winter to keep crews busy, particularly in housing construction. The mayor, City Manager Tom Nutting and his assistant Wayne Quinn met with other municipal officials and provincial cabinet ministers in Edmonton Thursday and learned that the province as a whole will not receive much money under the new federal program. That program was initiated to provide some relief to the unemployment lines across the country. Mayor Anderson said Alberta has not been as hard hit as other provinces, so consequently, not as much relief is needed here. He said in August and September, the unemployment rate in the province was about 2.8 per cent of the labor force, less than half the national average. Municipal Affairs Minister Dave Russell said Thursday the province might receive $2,500,-000 for municipal projects, an equal amount for community association projects and about $9,000,000 for provincial projects. No official statement will be made until early next week on the final amounts. When the totals are determined, municipal officials will meet again to discuss distribution of the money throughout the province, and specific projects which could make use of the funds. Locally, Mr. Nutting has pre� pared a list of possible eligible projects. Some of those stressed by Mayor Anderson as being of more immediate importance are: -job training programs for people receiving social assistance; -river valley development; -construction of a youth hostel and youth drop-in centre; -the youth golf course; -a city wide tree planting and pruning program; -a building program in eon-junction with the Native Friendship Society of Southern Alberta; -Henderson Lake Golf Course improvements. Mayor Anderson said before any decisions are made, there will have to be a definition of municipal and local organizations. He said he is prepared to make some definite recommendations to provincial authorities concerning proposed city projects, primarily from the above list.

In fact, we go so far as to make the equipment that makes the parts. Even the wood gets special treatment. We cure it nature iiy for as much as 8 years to avoid internal stresses. Then wo dry it in our electronically controlled kilns. Only then does the wood enter the tedious, painstaking process of becoming an organ. It's not that we don't trust outside suppliers. It's lust that in 50 years of making fine organs, we've found wo can make any part better than we can buy it. With OM exception. And unfortunately there's only one supplier.
