H. A. 'BUD' OLSON MINISTER OF AORICULTURE U of L suffering from money woes By RON CALDWELL Staff Writer A cloud of uncertainty Is hov- ering over the University ot Lethbridge and it Is causing severe problems in the day-to- day operation of the campus. The problem is simple university officials do not know how much money they will be given to run the institution in 1972-73, and it could be next month before this information is received. "It looks like we are going to have to wait said President Dr. Bill Beckel. "I'm afraid the government is having trouble making up its mind. "Every day they delay, deci- sions that have to be made can't be made and it is hard on us." The main decision that will have to come is where the uni- versity will curtail its opera- tions to meet budget restric- tions. The realization that as many as 20 or 30 teaching positions may be in jeopardy has scuttl- ed morale on the campus. "It is beginning to take its toll: It is difficult to be cheer- ful and to get tie job done under these said Dr. BeckeL "The effect it is having on the students is damn bad." The university has requested an operating budget of million for the coming year. "This is the absolute break- even point, and anything below that' and we will be in serious trouble." He said UK universities com- mission has recommended (5.4 million for the U of L. Dr. Beckel said the philoso- phy adopted by the university last fall, that no jobs would be terminated without one year's notice still is'in effect. "As far as I am concerned that is still our position, but that could change depending on the amount of money the gov- ernment gives said Dr. Beckel. "If they give us anything less than million, then we may have to change out think- ing. One possibility would be to cut our library budget com- as it sounds, but we may have to do it. "Another possibility would be to reduce salaries rather than give raises. That is ridicu- lous too but it is still a possi- bility. "Something like this may en- able us to keep at least some Parents question open-area schools The value of tihe open area school concept has been ques- tioned by the Lethbridge Coun- cil of Home and School Asso- ciations. Marilyn Krammer, repre- senting the council, told Tues- day night's meeting of UK pub- icl school board that the parent group is neither for nor against open area classrooms, be- cause not enough is known about them. Mrs. Krammer said the main concern of parents is that they do not know how well the stu- dents are functioning in open area classrooms. Agnes Davidson and Fleet- wood Bawden elementary schools both have open area classrooms, as well as the more traditional type. Parents have also questioned why there has been no study to determine how well the con- cept is working, what students and teachers think of it and what the specific objectives of open-area classrooms are. Mrs. Krammer added that a number of teachers have said they do not like teaching in the modern classroom setup. "We have many teachers who would like to get in, so anyone who wants out should say so and we can facilitate said superintendent Dr. 0. P. Larson.

Beckti said. Jim Fishbournc, secretary to the board of governors at the U of L, says the uncertainty has created an atmosphere of tension that is contagious. "People are scared stiff that they are going to lose their he said. "They have been looking around their departments won- dering whom they have to beat out in order to keep their own jobs." Mr. Fishbourne said a review will be undertaken to deter- mine what is valuable in each department and what is ex- pendable. He said one half of the clerical positions in what re- mains of student services could be affected, as well as three administrative posts. So far, no faculty positions have been earnmarked, he added. Mr. Fishbourne said It has been proposed at least once that tenure or seniority will not have any bearing on who goes and who stays. "We have to Identify our core programs and decide what is essential and what is not. Then we will proceed from there." Meanwhile, the tension is mounting as government offi- cials in Edmonton move slowly in deciding what money will be forthcoming and, indirectly, who will lose their jobs later this year.
