The problem arises when a udge outside tits Edmonton -ea permits a suspended driv r to drive. It seems Edmonton must be written for tfce restricted per mit which is in turn o the affected driver.

"In view of the Worth Com- ission recommendations that Grade 12 departmental be ibolished, we thought it would >e a good time to make an- ther pitch." Dr. Larson said the views of the department may be differ int in light of the Worth Re- lort's stand. CONVINCED 'Because of the Worth Re- >ort, we are more convinced hao ever that we are Dr. Larson added. "We have also heard from different people that the da partment is taking a sympathe- tic attitude toward the view as expressed in the report, so we are somewhat optimistic.' Dr. Larson said he hopes t< hear from the minister late this week and, if not, "I'll b on the phone to see what i going on." He said a decision must be made by Sept. 15 if teacher are to prepare themselves fo a change in time for Christ mas examinations. UNANIMOUS SUPPORT Support .for local evaluatio is unanimous among teachers principals and departmen heads in the public school sys tern. One of the main arguments in support of local evaluation that teachers who have workec with and known a sluden throughout his academic c; reer, know better what h achieved than the person wh marks one examination th results of which can ultlmatel; have a bearing on a student': life. The issue developed when th new government called a hal last fall to the total local evalu ation experiment in Lethbridg schools. Subsequent negotiatior saw the schools given author zation to determine 50 per cen of the final mark with the de- partmental results making u the remainder.

Aid to feed buyers, sellers Grain data exchange opens By RIG SWIHART Herald Staff Writer A provincial feed grain mar- keting information exchange, or- iented to individual fanners and animal feeders, has been estab- lished in Alberta. Organized under the recently- formed Alberta Grain Commis- sion of the provincial depart- ment of agriculture, the inform- ation exchange is a system to bring together buyers and sell- ers of feed grain from through- out the province. Cliff McArthur, Information exchange manager, said the plan was to make feed grain available to Alberta feeders or farmers without entering the ex- port chain. Previously, all feed grain was handled through the Canadian wheat board and any person requiring feed grain without knowledge of where to get it had to go through the same channels as any importing na- tion. Information gathering loca- nns have been set up in the provincial regional agricul- ofDces in Alberta. Any jerson wanting to buy or sell eed grains can call the number their closest regional agri- ultural office ajd officials will ry to bring together the closest lyer and seller. Once the match is made, the epartment of agriculture pulls ut of the negotiations, leaving uyer and seller to complete a eal satisfactory to themselves. Gordon Ross, animal industry upervisor for the local region- agricultural office, said the ystem has had limited use in outhem. Alberta.

The donation was made by John P. Miska of Lethbridge on jehalf of the Szechenyi Society, a Calgary-based organization designed to promote Hungarian educational and cultural affairs n Canada. Two of the books donated to ;he university ate written in Hungarian while the remainder are in English. In the past eigh years, the society has similar volumes to more than 60 universities in Canada. armers have established trade atlerns to get rid of their he said. HDS FARMERS Mr. Ross suggested that the system will take care of over- roduction in southern Alberta and will handle stocks produced farmers just entering the ecd grain market. "If any producer has feed grain available on his farm, the system is the tool to use to help get rid of said Mr. Ross Since the Aug. 3 implementa- tion, the local office has receiv- ed about 40 calls from buyers ind sellers mostly to inquire of he system or to request feed grain prices. "The strange thing about the calls to said Mr. Ross, 'is that there appears to be more buyers of feed grain than -here are sellers. There have been requests to buy bush- els while only bushels have jeen offered for sale here. This hasn't occurred in the eight years I have been in southern Alberta." Mr. McArthur said the sys tern may have a tendency lo stabilize feed grain prices, end Ing the circulating stories abou 35-cent per bushel barley. "If the feed grain prices ari made readily available to farm ers and they see the price at 7 cents per bushel, it isn't likelj they will sell for 35 cents pei he said.

This simply isn't the ease." In fact, 75 students sought dmission in (lie fall semester s mature students. Only 50 accepted. Mr. Oviatt said about 20 were dyisedi to enrol at the Letli- ridge Community College to ake courses they needed to repare them for university while the remaining applicants were -rejected for a variety of reasons. "What we are looking for in a mature student in maturity and Mr. Oviatt said. "This is very difficult to determine." Each mature student applica- tion is considered as a separate case and all the factors arc taken into consideration when deciding whether admission should be granted. Mr. Oviatt sold very few ap- plicants in the 19 lo 55-year- old category are admitted be- cause them seem to be less motivated and less qualified than others. "Take for instance, a stu- dent who flunks out of high school and then figures all he has to do is goof off for a year before coming to university as mature student. "He will have to give us a pretty good case for himself be- fore we will accept him." Mr. Oviatt said the mature student policy is a value to so- ciety because it gives people who lack academic qualications another chance. He said it is ridiculous to penalize someone for life be- cause they happened to fail a matriculation examination 20 years ago. If they can show they have the desire and ma- turity, there's a good chance they can catch the boat the second time around. Hospitals told to watch costs St. Michael's General Hospi- al board has received a letter rom Health Minister Neil Craw- ord expressing concern over he escalating cost of health sare in the province. The letter, read at Thursday night's monthly meeting, the irst following the summer re- cess, urged hospital boards to mplement calculated meat and avoid unnecessary duplication of services. The board discussed the dis- continuance of St. Michael's School of Nursing next year and decided to ask the Alberta riospital Services Commission 'or clarification regarding fi- nancial arrangements between St. Michael's and the Lethbridge Community College. In other business, the board voted to write Uie Industrial Relations Board in Edmonton for clarification of a request to have the Health Sciences Asso- ciation as the bargaining unit for para-medical employees of St. Michael's. The board has until the end of September to submit its bud get for 1973 to Edmonton. Pre- viously, the deadline for sub- mitting the budget was Nov. 15. Pressed by time, the board cm- powered its finance committee to submit the budget, now be- ing prepared, without going through the full board. The finance committee will study the budget at a sneda' meeting Sept. 26. Presenting her statistical ant financial reports, hospital ad ministrator Sister M. Clarissa Bald Sia deficits at the end a June stood ui. aiwm. She said the Hospital's fin an cial situation "looks good." Admissions for the first hal f this year totalled com- ared with in the same eriod last year. Patient days, however, de- lined from to ister Clarissa explained this was due to a more rapid turn- ver, partly because of the pening of the Southland Nurs- ng Home which drew away ong-term patients.
