Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 14, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAbO Monday, December 14, 1970 Warm Pacific air boss of weather With the first official day of winter fast approaching, moth- er nature appears determined to hold out until the last minute. The mild weather will con- tinue at least for the next three cl.ivs. The analysis of pressure sys- tems influencing southern Al- berta's weather, has remained much the same for the past 10 UNIVERSITY INTERIOR DESIGNS Some idea of what the new University of Leth- bridge academic building will be like can be seen in these pictures. The three pictures on the leff show different views of the entrance lounge on the main pedestrian con- course. The fop, right hand picture shows an end view of the 909-foot Song academic building, with the pedestrian concourse the second row of windows from the ground. The windows are covered now by polyethylene sheets, awaiting installation of glass. The concourse will include lounges, seminar rooms, library, cafeteria and other facilities. The inferior pictures were taken from a scale model prepared by the U of L master architects Erickson-Massey, in which the "peo pie" are only about two inches tall. of L ready in September for 70 per cent occupancy Work on the West Lethbridge campus of the University of Lethbridge is a month ahead of schedule in some parts, and of L officials are now cer- tain 65 to 70 per cent of the building will be occupied by September, 1971. The remainder will be finish- ed by January. As can be seen from Scenic Drive, most of the south por- tion of the 909-foot long aca- demic building, worth about million, has been completed. Work is also ahead of sched- ule on the remaining sections to the north. Mechanical, electrical and masonry work now are under way in the structurally com- pleted blocks. The architects, Erickson- Massey of Vancouver, have built a small scale mode! of the interior of some parts of the building, including the main entrance areas of the pedes- trian concourse, roughly the middle storey of the universitv. A variety of furnishing pos- are under discussion, but the model reflects what the Full-scale models of the resi- dence units, both for single and double occupancy, will be built on the LCC campus early in January, complete with fur- nishings. Housing officer Dwight Jen- sen said he will ask university students to view the models and offer any criticisms of them, before they are put out for decorating and furnishing tenders. Until all of the university's departments are housed in the new facilities, there will likely he an extensive university-fi- nanced bus shutlle service be- tween the university and col- lege campuses during the day, since students will not likely be able to all courses in their fall semester on one campus.
