The federal government will supply the provincial government and the tity the remaining cr levels of government for proper administration of the standards, says the Alberta government. Premier Hairy Strom of Al- berta, in a paper released in Edmonton and scheduled for presentation at the constitu- tional conference in Ottawa, said an inter-governmental fo- rum on pollution control should bo established as soon as pos- sible. Ho said the forum should be composed of federal and pro- vincial government members only to facilitate co-ordination. "Submissions by industries or other interested parlies could be made either directly to the Canadian council of re- source ministers or through, federal or provincial govern- ments via a federal-provincial members committee." He said research groups in-1 ncy an corporatlng government, unl-1 search studies, obtain person- vcrsity and industry personnel I ncl through the permanent staff and evaluate the results o{ these studies. It would also be responsible for co-ordinat- ing the activities of other re- search groups working in the area of environmental manage- ment and pollution control. "Recommendations which re- quired legislation or expendi- ture of funds or government staff or facilities would require tlie approval of each govern- ment involved at the executive council or ministeral level." Costs of such a committee and any research would be share equally by the federal and provincial governments. Mr. Strom said municipal o v e r n ment participation in any such program is desireable and necessary because "the ur- ban municipality is most inti- would study a given situatio and submit recommendation (o tho permanent committal that would indudo represent lives from Ottawa and the 1 provinces.

He said, however, federal standards are the only feasible way to handle pollution prob- ems because municipalities lave neither the financial oundation nor the jurisdiction o handle the situation. All orders of government must participate in pollution abatement. To place complete >r prime responsibility in the lands of local governments would be unrealistic. "The federal government is already party to all pollution matters on an international and inter-provincial scale. It ould be argued that making it arty to all pollution disputes would be a logical extension of jurisdiction.

Okay Half-Year Courses EDMONTON (CP) The University of Alberta is con- sidering changing many of its courses to half-year length, but it has stopped short of a switch to the semester system. The executive committee of the General Faculty Council has approved a report request- ing all faculties and schools to organize increased numbers of courses that can be com- pleted in one term. The report must still be ap- proved by the general faculty council. This switch to half-year courses is a major step toward a semester system, the execu- tive committee was told by Prof. Wilf PilMngton, who pre- sented the report recommend ing the half-year courses.

Healing Shrinks Piles, Checks Itch Exclusive healing substance proven to shrink hemorrhoids...and repair damaged tissue. A renowned research instituta has found a unique healing sub- stance with the ability to shrink hemorrhoids painlessly, ft re- lieves itching and discomfort in minutes and speeds up healing of the injured, inflamed tissues.

Pain was promptly and gently relieved actual reduction or And most improvement was maintained in cases where clinical observations were continued over a period of many months. Furthermore, these tests and observations were made on patients with a wide variety of hcmonhoklal condi- tions.
