8—B THE REGISTER-NEWS —- MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS MONDAY, JANUARY 27, 1969 Poultry And Livestock Are Creating Pollution WASHINGTON (AP>— President Johnson received a proposed program to combat agriculture-related pollution of the nation's water, soil and air at a cost of at least five billion dollars. The report was submitted by Secretary of Agriculture Orville L. Freeman and Ivan L. Bennett, acting director of the Office of Science and Technology, in a response to a Presidential directive of March 8. An estimated $1 billion a year would be required, the report said, for the first five years JOE MARTIN INSURANCE AGENCY Service Is The Keynote of Our Business 1110 Main Office Phone 244-2800 Auto Homo Fire Business to fully implement the program for controlling agriculture-related pollution. This would represent, an increase of about 60 per cent over current spending. The report notes that extensive federal programs are presently under way to combat pollution, but says considerable additional efforts are needed. Water pollution from soil sediment, the report said, still costs the nation more than 5500 million annually, despite a reduction of such pollution during the past 30 years. Centralization of livestock, milk, poultry and egg production has increased problems associated with the more than 1.7 billion tons of animal wastes produced annually, it said. Among the appi'oaches suggested to minimize pollution from animal wastes are increased use of existing technology and development o f better waste- management systems.

Canadian Brain Drainln Reverse INC. 1000 Main Mr. Vernon Ground Floor of Rogers Building DARRELL QUICK, Manager Phone 242-0210 By MAX IIARRELSON Associated Press Writer OTTAWA (AP) - One of Canada's current problems is a brain drain in reverse: a brain invasion. Many Canadians were shaken a bit by recent disclosure that half of the country's university professors come from outside Canada, mostly from the United Stales. It also became known that U.S. textbooks were being used to teach Canadian students political science, history, literature and social sciences. One result has been a small furor in academic circles, including suggestions that Canadian students are being indoctrinated to look at problems from the U.S. point of view and that something must be done about it. At Carleton University in Ottawa, two faculty members presented a resolution calling for maintenance of a "two-thirds majority of Canadian citizens" on the teaching sfaff. Their proposal was ovewhelmingly rejected. Most educators acknowledge that the problem is serious, but most agree with an editorial in the Toronto Globe and Mail holding that the situation "is not the fault of the invaders." * * * The Globe and Mail touched -o- -o- off the controversy by disclosing that approximately 35 per cent of the university teaching force is from the United States. The figure is much higher in some of the new universities. For example, at Simon Fraser University, near Vancouver, 68 per cent of the faculty are Americans. At Waterloo University six of the seven departments in the humanities and social sciences are headed by Americans. The same university offers four courses in American literature and none in Canadian literature. The explanation is the rapid' expansion of Canada's higher education facilities. In 1961 three-fourths of the country's 9,000 professors were Canadian, but between then and 1967 the undergraduate enrollment more than doubled, the graduate enrollment almost quadrupled and faculties were expanded 1 by 7,700 new professorships. Two- thirds of the new posts were filled by imported scholars. Prof. H. G. Thornbum, head of political studies at Queen's University, said it was "fantastic" for a country to import foreigners to teach politics. A similar view was expressed by Prof. R. A. Crichton, head of the applied arts division at Durham College. He said persons who "have come under U.S. influence by birth or training are going to bend : their subject material accordingly." :!l * * Two Canadian students at Cornell University disagreed. They wrote: "We, as Canadian students studying in the United States, are extremely disturbed by the recent furor over the national origins of university professors and find the attitudes of some of our fellow countrymen totally repugnant . .. .Such misguided nationalism could doom Canada's universities to a second class status for years to come." Frank Milligan of the Canada Council says the threat of U.S. deomination of Canadian universities is "a disappearing problem," largely confined to the new institutions. "Maybe in three years," he says, "certainly in five, the supply will equal the demand." He believes the new universi- -o- -o- ties that have sprung up in the past decades never could have developed if they had not recruited faculties abroad.
