Phil Faulds Photo .Staff cuts still possible Beckel 'overjoyed' by budget change By HON CAUJWELL Staff Writer Dr. Bill Beckel president of (he University of Lethbridge, said today he was "overjoyed" with a government order-in- councii which will change the method of calculating govern- ment grants to universities. The change means that uni- versities can stop fearing large budget cuts if student enrol- ments don't live up to projec- pccted, even though much of lions. it would already have been Under the previous system, j committed. THs is what happened at the U of L this year. The university budget grants were paid strictly on an enrolment basis. This, meant that universities estimated their budgets in the spring based on studen' enrol- ments anticipated for the fall. If the enrolments didn't mater- ialize, the universities were faced with less money than ex- LCC wants budget 2.5 The Lelhbridge College will ask Community the Alberta colleges commission for an op- erating budget of approximate- ly million for 1072-73. This represents an over-all in- crease of 13 per cent over the previous budget of million. The commission had placed a ceiling of 15 to 20 per cent on budget increases for all col- leges. LCC officials expect an en- rolment increase of 7.7 per cent order to give the regulating body an indication of what LCC expects its budget needs to be for the coining year. "While they are looking this over, we will have time to pre- pare a detailed budget so when we meet with them, we will be able to have our estimates fi- said Dean Cooper, di- rector of finance at the college. Mr. Cooper said the biggest chi.nk of the increase will go to expected salary boosts, cost next year. I of new programs and expansion The budget, as it is now laid I of present programs, out. lacks detail on proposed j Final word on budget ap- expendilures, but it is being proval is not expected until forwarded to the commission in May. Interchange protested by Alberta colleges commission RICHARD BURKE Staff Writer Representatives of the engi- neering firm doing a feasibility study on a new arena for Leth- jridge told the Instant Ice Council Wednesday the location of an arena will be the most .mportant factor contributing la the success of the facility. The problem of location is not a simple one, said Lou Ostipov of Phillips, Barrett, Hillier, Jones and Partners. He said afler meetings with lie Exhibition Board and the Lethbridge Community College, ic found both groups were con- vinced the arena should be in their respective back yards. The Exhibition board went so :ar as to tell Mr. Ostipov it couldn't use an arena unless it s on the Exhibion Grounds. The wisdom of possibly lo- cating the arena near the col- cge was questioned by mem- bers of the Instant Ice Council vho wondered if the college vouldn't "hog" the facility foi- ls own purposes and leave lit- le time for its use by the rest >f flic community. Locating the arena in She lowntown area received some upport from people at the meeting, but the consultants autioned that considerably nore money than the cost of the acilily would have lo he spent vithin five years to upgrade the west end. The consultants 'then advised lai the various groups in town liould "ione down" the ques- 1 lion of location and concentrate on the facility itself. First of all, it mast be de- termined if Lethbridge at this point in its development needs a multi-purpose, spectator ice arena, Mr. Ostipov said. In order to make such a fa- cility successful, he said, it must be versatile enough to be used 250 to MO days a year and not just for hockey. The city must decide if it wants to attract major-drawing events which now bypass Ihe city because they can't afford to'come herc.The Ice Capades is one example. Various scaling capacity fig- ures were tossed around at the meeting. Between and seats were suggested, with the greatest emphasis on about That would be the number of seats required for the city to be able to attract a major ju- nior hockey team, according to Ed Bruchet. Once the consultants deter- mine if there is a need for a major multi-purpose arena in the city, the question of seating capacity is only one of many which must be answered before the end of April when city coun- cil receives the consultants' recommendations. The consultants plan to be in the city again at the end of February to listen to the opin- ions of anyone who has an in- terest, either pro or eon. Writ- ten briefs have been requested from the major groups involved in trying lo bring an arena to Lethbridge. The Alberta college's com- mission has expressed disap- proval of the roule of a pro- posed highway interchange in Lethbridge. In a letter to Highways Min- ister Clarence Copithcrne, com- mission chairman Dr. Henry Kolesar said the proposed high- way would make long-range campus development plans impossible. The college says the inter- change along Scenic Drive would cut off access to land need for future expansion. "It will be unfortunate if the two projects were to proceed in such a way that the comple- tion of either would adversely affect the said Dr. Ko- lesar. owers increase in "I am requesting that you reconsider your plans for the expressway in Lethbridge and, if necessary, change its path so that the college campus development plan will not be adversely affected." million for an enrolment of 1.450 students, but only 1.250 registered. If the government had continued on the grant-per- student basis, the university would have received about less than it expected. The government order-in- council means the U of L will now receive all the money it required to fulfill its 1971-72 op- erating expenses. Dr. Beckel said ihe decision could have both good and bad effects on universities. "It will be good because we will know in advance what kind of money we can be said. "But it will be bad if we budget for a certain number of students and get more, then we won't be paid for these addi- tional students." Jim Foster, minister of ad- vanced education, said the province will pay grants this year and in future years on an all-encompassing-budget basis. This means that once the grant is established, this will be the amount the universities can count on. A total of million had been allocated for Alberta uni- versities for 1971-72 but because of a drop in student enrolments, only S85 million would have been paid under the old head- count system. The change means that the universities will get the entire million. Dr. Beckcl said the university is anticipating an enrolment of in 1972-73 and will be bud- geting for that number. He said as far as anticipated U of L spending and staff cuts are concerned, the government announcement does not change their present likelihood. Major subdivision proposal J A JL given MFC recommendation n sugar production quota Remember Your SWEETHEART GRANDMOTHER SOMEONE SPECIAL By RIC SWIIIA11T Staff Writer The Alberta Sugar Beet Growers Asociation Wednes- day called for a sugar policy in Canada that would require at least. 30 per cent of the na- tional sugar needs he from re- fined sugar beets. The present production from beds is 12 per cent. Ed Shimbashi of Earnwcll said this has been asked for in the past hut it always was re- fused. Burns Wood of Tahcr. vice- president of (he organization told Ihe delegates that un- der the International Sugar Agreement Canada has agreed not to produce more than 20 per ecu' ot its domcsilo need. lie told one farmer that for such a resolution to be effec- tive, the government would have to agree first. Ariother farmer said it was ridiculous to buy 80 per cent of the sugar needed in Canada at unknown prices, implying that a sugar policy would help hold prices at some "decent as far as the consumer was concerned. Mr. Wood said there were some safeguards in the Interna- tional Sugar Agreement. If the price goes down, sugar is with- held from the Canadian mar- ket. If the price goes up, sugar is dumped on the market u level the price. He said there is now a short- age of sugar in Ihe world and there is not enough to dump (.11 the Canadian market to lower Llie present high price.

Mr. Shimbaslu, who farms a corporation 50-50 with his brotr- cr, said this means both must pay into the fund. He said for one to escape payment, the corporation would have to be divided unequally. The convention also called for more speciality sugar (su- gar cubes and envelopes of sugar) to be made from beet sugar. All speciality sugar now is made from cane. The stickler is that for beet sugar to be made into spe- ciality sugar, costly equipment would have to be installed. Two resolutions submitted from the Raymond, Magrath, Welling and Stirling locals re- quested the federal government to increase the housing grant to per beet worker from and that a renovation grant of per worker be available once every five years. A major subdivision between 14th and J8lh Ave. N. from 23rd to 20th St. was recommended for approval by the Municipal Planning Commission Wednes- day. The subdivision consists of 59 acres and will create 224 new residential lots with 7.5 acres of public reserve. i The MFC approval was given subject to completion of a de- velopment agreement between Manhattan Land Securities Ltd. and tile city administration concerning servicing of the lots, cost and timing of devel- opment. A spokesman for Manhattan Land Securities said 123 of the lots will be put on the market this spring. City council must give final approval to the subdivision. tlie MPC also approved an application from K. Elkjar to establish a boarding house for handicapped children at 2803 6th Ave. S.
