Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 18, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Friday, January 18.1974 I Leave necessary to refresh educators, says professor By JIM GRANT Herald Staff Writer Educators need to take a leave of absence from their regular teaching duties to 'refresh themselves as scholars so they are more competent at performing their duties, a University of Lethbridge professor says. Dr.i Gordon Campbell is researching and writing at the University of Bristol in England instead of instructing education students at the U of L this spring semester. He has been granted sabbatical leave from the U of L from January to June. It is important that faculty members of universities "sharpen their perspective" through travel and research. "Students have a right to the latest and best information available" which can best be provided for them by professors who have maintained their own professional competency, he says. Dr. Campbell suggests faculty members must do more than keep abreast of changes by constantly reading in their leisure time. They must be given the time, every few years, to do further study and extended research in their chosen specialty. It is often necessary, he says, for faculty members to travel to other areas of the world in order to further develop their field of studies. "The university by definition is the commonwealth of the mind and it knows no boundaries." "The area for research includes the whole world." Dr. Campbell's own specialty will take him to a few European countries and the Soviet Union during the next six months. He will make his home base at the University of Bristol where he has Jaeen granted permission to use library and research facilities. Dr. Campbell, an expert on the history and development of community colleges in Canada, will be inspecting the college system in the United Kingdom and the Soviet Union. In the Soviet Union, he hopes to learn how a country that is not based on a commercial economy "prepares its non-degree type training." He also hopes to do some travelling to other areas of Europe to briefly view a variety of non-degree training methods. During his sabbatical, Dr. Campbell will also be revising two books he has written. One is the result of his studies about the sociological origins of colleges in Alberta and the other is a reference work about the development of community colleges in Canada. Dr. Campbell began developing his expertise on community colleges when he became the founding president of Selkirk College, the first regional college in British Columbia, and he has been studying them ever since. His study of non-degree institutions in the United Kingdom and the Soviet Union may also be the subject of a future reference book, he says. Dr. Campbell claims his research will benefit the educational system internationally, nationally and provincially. Internationally, he will be sharing his knowledge of community colleges while studying colleges in other countries, speaking at conventions and seminars and through his writings, he says. He has already lectured in several seminars in the United States, the latest being in California at an assembly of educators who congregated to discuss the college movement in the U.S. Nationally, he will be able to contribute even more to the Canadian Community Colleges Institute which he founded in 1970. Through the Institute, Dr. Campbell is attempting to develop new instructional systems and a greater concentration upon excellence in the learning process in Canada's colleges. The institute is also responsible for an intensive three-week learning experience that provides knowledge of global educational growth to community college educators. Dr. Campbell also hopes to develop a national office of education.. "Canada is one of very tew, among the developed countries, without a national office of education." . . An analysis of the role Qf the federal government in education is needed, he says. "We must work toward equalizing educational opportunity in Canada." On the provincial level, Dr. Campbell will continue to provide his expertise to the department of advanced education and the community colleges. Since by definition the community college must reach out to the community, he feels his efforts also benefit the local community. Funding oiF Dr. Campbell's research during the next six months is shared by the British Council in England, the Canada Council and the U of L. The British Council has given him a grant to cover the cost of touring the British technical schools and non-degree further education institutes. The Canada Council has granted him $25,000 to cover research costs (including travel and research in the Soviet Union), secretarial and other costs. The U of L contributes financially by paying Dr. Cafnpbell about seven-eighths of his January to June salary. The royalties he receives from the books he writes amounts to "about 10 cents per hour," he claims. "I do not personally gain - financially by the sabbatical," he points out. DR. GORDON CAMPBELL LCC, gov't confer The Lethbridge Community College's plea for more money will be considered by the department of advanced education, the department's director of financing said in Lethbridge Thursday. Joe Batty, in a meeting with the LCC finance committee, said the case LCC puts forward for funds, in addition' to the seven per cent increase already granted for this year, will be reviewed along with similar requests being made by other colleges in the province. LCC officials were satisfied with that decision. Mr. Batty indicated that a decision on whether the college grants will be increased is not likely before March.

Reeve Dick Papworth said Tuesday. In his regular report to council, the reeve noted labor, costs have risen "9 to 10 per cent" and machinery costs are also higher. As the time for the county to prepare its 1974 budget draws nearer, Reeve Papworth said, "I can't see much chance of holding the mill rate." The county's mill rate in 1973 stood at 80.3; only .6 of a ipill higher than in 1972. The county's budget in 1973 was estimated at over $5 million. The county's fiscal year corresponds with the calendar year and council is now spending out of a budget that hasn't been drawn up yet. . An audited financial statement is being prepared and budget meetings should start before the end of January, according to Bob Grant, county manager. Council has already made its major capital expenditure for 1974, reaching agreement this week for the purchase of two graders and an earth-mover. Including the trade-in value on an older grader, the bill comes to about $199,000.

Phom 3a7-27M Lethbridge county adopts dog bylaw After an intermittent debate lasting two years, Lethbrid] County council took about minutes Thursday to give its constituents a dog bylaw. The bylaw, originally drawn up in 1971, covers the entire county and allows an appointed dog catcher to pick up dogs ninning-at-large and kill strays still unclaimed after a certain period. Coun. Jim Nicol moved first reading after he told council he has had about 10 complaints within the last week of dog packs running loose in Coalhurst, an area Mr. Nicol represents. Dog licensing is not provided for and the county will have to seek agreement with other municipalities in the area to share their dog-pound facilities. County council also voted Thursday to take advantage of a maximum $15,000 provincial government grant allowing municipalities to hire utilities officers. The program was intended to speed up rural gasification, although employees hired under the grant can also work on other utility projects, such as electrification or sewer and water installation. Coun. Henry Nummi estimated a majority of county residents have natural gas service, but added that if Uie provincially-paid utilities officer could assist with sewer and water servicing, the county should take part in the program.

The meeting will take place in Sunnyside School: Coleman basements flooded COLEMAN (CNP Bureau) ,- Chinook winds and heavy rains that came hard on the heels of an 18-inch snowfall in the Crowsnest Pass this week created some basement flooding problems in the lower levels of east Coleman. The Crowsnest River passes through the centre of east Coleman (the lower part of the town below Highway 3). It raises the water table level in the area. During the week Coleman town crews faced a problem when a water main on 2nd Street broke. The water was shut off and an alternate supply was used until repairs were made. Reports of the flooded basements reached the Disaster Services Office at Calgary. It contacted the Coleman town office to see if help was needed. Disaster Services was advised no help is needed. The RCMP also offered help to the town but the assistance of the.force was not needed. FOX DENTURE CLINIC Est. 1922 PHONE 327-6S6S E. S. P. FOX, C.D.M.
