Dr. Ken Pennifold said there is. already ample evidence to show that poor- quality hamburger is being sold across the country. He noted that several studies in Edmonton and one conducted by the university of Guelph all have found excessive bacteria levels in hamburger samples.

University requires more money (CP) President Harry Gunning pf University of Alberta says a 35-per-cent increase in its operating grant from the government is required to ensure that the universi- .ty continues its proper role. He told the general faculties council that Ad- vanced Education Minister Jim Foster promised in April that an increase in the government's allot- ment to the university would be forthcoming for the 1975-76 academic year. The government supplied the university with in operating grants this year. Dr. Gunning said heavy increases in wholesale prices, the cost of library journals and staff wages contributed to the financial problems of the university. Calgary pollution levels high CALGARY (CP) Air pollution levels have reached as high as 96 on the depart- ment of environment air quality index this month because of seasonal changes in weather patterns, pollution control officials said Tuesday. G. R. Peck, acting director of the.southern Alberta branch of the pollution control division of the department of the environment, said the con- dition is common each year in the fall to winter seasonal transition. He said the problem is caus- ed by the number of automobiles used during the two peak rush hours, which now occur during the time of a temperature inversion over the downtown core of the city. The high reading of 96 was reached Oct. 26 as a thick, brown haze hung low over the city. Wholesaler Specializing in firearms and fishing tackle re- quires a re-buyer.
