Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 16, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta S TW IfTHlSIDOE HERAID TutiJay, February 16, 1971 Three groups lack aid on educational planning EDMONTON least three groups are not well served by Alberta's present post secondary education sys- tems, Dr. A. M. Kristjanson, co ordinator of a special com- mittee studying post second- ary education, said today. Dr. Kristjanson spoke at a news conference following pub- lication of a special 131 page interim report by lu's commit- tee to its parent body, the Worth Commission on educa- tional planning. The commission, chaired by Dr. Walter Worth, is studying the needs for education in Al- berta to the year 2000 and will make recommendations to the provincial government in a re- port early next year. "We wish to draw attention to the greater range of 'pub- lics' that post secondary ed- ucation must the report said. "We will mention three that traditionally have not been served by the post secondary system because our curriculum has been too inflexible." Tie first group includes pub- lic 1 e a d e r s, Dr. Kristjanson said. These individuals had to keep abreast of what is cur- rent but they were often too busy "running" the society to fit "into the present inflexible programs. The second group are the so- cially and economically disad- vantaged. "The briefs from the Indian and Metis Associations have il- lus t r a t e d how psychological and economic barriers are pre- venting some of our publics from entering post secondary institutions." The third group are part-time students who wish to follow a career and also take further studies. One of the major recommen- dations of the 10 member committee is that more atten- tion must be paid to these three groups. More flexible curricula Universities time limited to justify importance BANFF, Alta. (CP) Alber- ta universities have only lim- ited time to develop "reasoned arguments" to justify their importance says Chairman Dr. L. A. Thor'ssen of the Alberta Universities Commission. Before the 1960's, the institu- tions received little attention and "to criticize universities in those days was about akin to criticizing motherhood." Dr. Thorssen told a regional meeting of the American Col- lege of Physicians during the weekend, exploding enrolment and soaring costs have pushed education into a position of un- precedented concern. Twelve years ago, enrolment was and provinc i a 11 y paid operating costs were million. Last year, stu- dents attended university and operating costs were mil- lion. RATIO HIGHER In the 1969-70 academic year 28 per cent of all 18-year-olds in the province were at univer- sity and 1.7 per cent of the province's population was tak- ing some kind of higher edu- cation, the ratio was higher than any other province in Can- ada and "as high or higher than any state in the U.S." Because of the 1 a r g e de- mands on provincial resources, it was essential univers i t i e s "move quite quickly" to pre- 100 Copies plus tax Instant Print Copy Div. 7269 Third Aye.

No shutdowns of Canadian can plants TORONTO (CP) The United Steelworkers of America strike against major can-manu- facturing companies in the United States has not yet caused any shutdowns at plants in Ontario, a union spokesman said today. The spokesman for the steel- workers union said workers at three Continental Can Co. plants in Toronto cannot go on strike legally until Feb. 23 because that time lapse is necessary fol- lowing release of a conciliation board report. The strike could also affect Continental Can workers in Montreal and American Can Co., workers in Vancouver. Among key issues in the nego- tiations hi Washington which broke down Sunday was the un- ion's demand for a cost-of-living escalator clause. The union also was seeking wage increases from the aver- age hourly rate in the can in- dustry of S3.60 in both Canada and the U.S. American Can plants in the Ontario centres of Malton, Brampton and Hamilton have separate contracts and are not affected. in present institutions and de- velopment of new and different kinds of institutions to meet their needs also were recom- mended. Funding of education in the future likely should be through the individual rather than the institution, says Dr. Kristjan- son. "Our prediction is that the relative responsibility of the in- dividual for his own financing will not materially change to 1980 PREDICT TREND "After 1980, we predict that there will be a trend to a great- er contribution toward total post secondary funding by means of the individual's con- tributions." This did not necessarily mean the monev would come from the individual's pocket. Rather, the funds would be giv- en to the individual rather than to the institution. "This in turn will place great- er control of post secondary education in the hands of its students who are paying for it." The institutions would then have to offer what the student wants rather than what it wish- ed to offer. The report said the private sector, including business and industry, has not contributed enough to the financing of post- secondary education. "We need to determine if their contribution through gen- eral taxation and voluntary contributions constitutes their reasonable share for the 'train- ing' of their potential em- ployees at raiblic expense." Municipalities also may not have contributed enough to post secondary education, the reoort said. "The nrimary argument ad- vanced for no municipal finan- cing is that post secondary education graduates are very mobile and do not remain in ths municipality where they re- ceived their post secondary education. "This argument Is not al- ways valid. There is almost certainly some retentive pow- er by the region in vliich a student obtains his education. In addition, residents benefit from some decrease in costs of attendance because of avail- ability of the institution. The report also recommend- ed increasing federal involve- ment in post secondary edu- cation "pending intensive study of federal provincial relation- ships."

PH.: 269-6736 GIVE IT SOME THOUGHT The Canadian Armed Forces Berlin package plan may be worked out BERLTM (API A reduced iVest German political presence in West Berlin could be part of a package agreement worked out by the Western allies and the Stoviet Union on Berlin, reli- able sources sard Monday. But they said there could be no question of offering the Rus- :ians something unless there was a package agreement along the lines the Western allies have proposed from the beginning of he talks on West Berlin, which is inside East Germany. Tlie talks resume here Thurs- day at the 15th meeting of the ambassadors to divided Ger- many from the United States, Britain, France and the Soviet Union. It was :-iderstood that the Western position involves four main points: access to West Berlin, movement within Berlin, West Berlin ties to West Ger- many and representation of West Berlin by West Germany abroad. And from the beginning, it was stated, the Russians dis- puted West Berlin's ties with West Germany. The fnatter has taken on added speculative interest be- cause of a comprehensive West- ern position paper handed the Russians last week. But one Western source said the paper contained nothing that had not been said before. "One cannot speak in terms of an exchange of reduced polit- ical presence by West Germany in West Berlin in return for ac- cess to he said. "What- ever is done, has to be part of a package that encompasses all the things the allied Western side has spoken about from the beginning. It also was stressed that the Western allies never have en- dorsed West Berlin's full inte- gration in West Germany, hav- ing suspended an article in the West German constitution that calls West Berlin a state of West Germany. Thev hold that all of Berlin, East and West, remains under four-power status. But it ap- peared that a reaffirmation of that position need not be in- cluded in a Berlin agreement by the four powers.
