University quota plan stirs public suspicion EDMONTON (CP) The public suspects that the University of Alberta is deliberately limiting access to its professional schools to maintain a high demand for graduates and high pay scales, says a university senate com- mittee. The committee report on quotas says last year more than applicants were turned away from nine faculties and public opinion is that quotas are a form of control exercised by the in- dividual professions. The committee concluded it found no indication that professions influenced the setting of quotas. But the report's authors admitted such a conclusion would be met with public skepticism. QUOTAS BY 1980 Harold MacNeil, chairman of the committe0, said the public's suspicion must be allayed quickly because there will likely be quotas in every faculty and school at the un- iversity by 1980. The report suggests non university personnel could be used on quota selection com- mittees. The university does not ade- quately inform the public about the problem of quotas and usually gives a limitation of resources as a reason but the public believes resources at the university are not being used fully, the report says. The university has relied heavily on academic grades as a criteria for admission but the public does not accept grades as a satisfactory guide, the report says. It adds that there is concern the university may be too "provincial" because of the emphasis it places on accepting Canadian citizens resident in Alberta. The task force suggested some consideration be given to insisting that graduates work in the local geographic area for a set period of time so the local area will benefit from the money it spends providing a professional education. Four found alive CRANBROOK, B.C. (CP) The four persons aboard a light plane missing Thursday on a flight from Porthill, Idaho to Cranbrook were found alive Friday. Pilot Leo Muraki of Kimberley, B.C., landed the Cessna 172 plane in a forested area near Moyie Lake, 10 miles south of here. There were no injuries. The party walked out of the woods and was found by a hunter who drove them to Canadian Forces rescue head- quarters at Cranbrook. Mr. Muraki said he had been unable to fly through bad weather between Cranbrook and the United States border and had crash landed. Also aboard was his daughter Ruth Esther Muraki, 16, and two other teen agers Jim and Robert Weaver of Curlew, Washington.
