Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 28, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta SCENIC ROUTE? This portion of Scott Rood in the municipality of Surrey, south of Vancouver, is officially a "scenic a s statecf on one of the signs pictured here. The Chamber of Commerce said Scott Road was one of lew north-south routes avail- able and was selected to get people "from one point on the route to another but I have to concede it was probably a mistake." Former Expo building v__' now modern apartment The letKbttdge Herald THIRD SECTION Lcthbridge, Alberta, Wednesday, June 28, 1972 Pages 31-38 Students would rather have jobs Higher education struggle gone MONTREAL (CP) Habitat, nearly empty when millions of visitors the ultra-modern apartment centre during Expo 67, now is fully occupied by 157 tenants. The building, resembling a .Jarge-scale. ..version .of a child's block creation, came under the administration of the federal Central Mortgage and Housing Corp. in January, 1968. Rents were substantially low- ered, to a month from a month for a one-bedroom apartment, and Montrealers, at- tracted by the unparalleled view of the downtown skyline and a wide range of services and com- modities, began lining up to sign leases. This year, .rents are being in- creased slightly but, says ad- ministrator Real Felton, there are about 75 new rental applica- tions from prospective tenants. INCLUDED IN RENT Designed by Montreal archi- tect Moishe Safdie, Habitat of- fers electricity and air condi- tioning as part of the rent, a small grocery store, free bus service for the 17 students living there to any of about six schools, free round-trip bus service to downtown Montreal ar.d the rental of an under- ground garage, a washer, dryer and dishwasher. Larry and Mardy Combs and their daughter Jennifer, 6, moved into the housing system last September from whal Mrs. Combs describes as a gloomy old apartment in suburbau Notre Dame de Grace. "There were a number of rea- sons wo liked she ex- plained. "For one, it's hard to find a sound-proof apartment. Habitat is. it's roomy. Still I IMnk it was mostly because of the river. We just love it here and Jennifer really feels free. Because the Combs's three- bedroom two-level apartment is on an end of the building, they have views on three sides, to- ward the city, facing the St. Lawrence River and toward Man and His World, Expo's four-year-old successor. "With a view like that you could hardly call Habitat re- says Dick Shain, a bach- elor businessman who was of the first tenants to move in when CMHC took over manage- ment. Mr. Sham says he came for tiie sun and light, the space, the refreshment of the thing." "It's an ever-changing sculp- ture." He also finds the infor- mal atmosphere "invigorating." Now, a little more than four years later, he says he "can't envisage leaving." For Michael Ash, a business man from England, Habitat is one of three homes. In Hampshire, England, his family owns a centuries-old home and in London Mr. Ash rents a fiat in a modern apart- ment building. "I heard about Habitat from friends he says. "I was aware of it at the time of Expo, but only dimly. I came out to see it and liked it very much. In particular, I was impressed with how near it was to every- thing. "Also, I'm involved in an ad- vanced building development here and it seemed appropriate to live in a prototype. "f think the planning is very good as well for families. There is privacy, but you can make friends." By THE CANADIAN PRESS Gone are the days when more education means more prosperity, more happiness, more social justice and a bet- ter way of life. The comment was made by Dr. R. W. Begg, principal of the University of Saskatche- wan, in a convocation speech. He voiced the thoughts of some students, many of whom have opted for a job rather than higher education. "We must make plans for consolidation and examine the possibility of cancelling some colleges and Dr. Begg continued, putting in a nutshell the dilemma many universities face as they pre- pare for the 1972-73 academic year: either reduce programs or increase tuition fees to compensate for reduced gov- ernment support due to de- clining enrolment. A Cross-Canada Survey by The Canadian Press shows that in most cases tuition and residence fees are going up, student enrolment is either holding the line or declining, and the universities are being forced to take a closer look at how they spend available funds. BETTER FOll JOBS Cutting sharply into student enrolment, some university officials say, are the new community colleges offering a variety of courses that many students feel equip them bet- ter for jobs alter graduation. And the scarcity of jobs for qualified graduates is another major factor. As one student put it: "There are a lot of BAs around driving cabs, and I could do that just as well without a degree." The Council of Ontario Uni versifies, representing Id in- stitutions, estimates there are fewer, applicants for first-year, full-time programs beginning this September compared with last year- Enrolment projections for some newer universities are said to be as much as 25 per cent lower ihis year than year, and with government fi- nancing based on the number of students attending, extreme financial hardship is forecast Tuition fees at all Ontario universities have increased by at least for imdergradu ates and possibly by jus undei for graduate stu dents because the Ontari government reduced financia support for the coming term. At the University of To- ronto, the most expensive ii Omada, this means that first-year arts or science stu dent will pay compared with last year's Other tu ilion fees, with last year's fig ures in brackets: applied sc cnce and engineering medicine ?874 physical education and phar macy THE PEOPLE OF SOUTHERN ALBERTA ARE CORDIALLY INVITED TO VISiT WITH THE DEPUTY PREMIER DR.

Entrance requirements are 'irtually unchanged at Grade 13 graduation with six credits and a minimum average of GO per cent. BOARD HIGHER On-campus housing for Jraduates and undergraduates will be about the same this year, although rates probably will be increased over the low of and high of last year for room and board. At Queen's University, Kingston, Ont, the picture is much the same, although tui- tion fees generally are lower than in Toronto. On-campus room and board this year var- ies from a low of to a high of Tuition fees will rise from a flat. a and spring a term. Undergraduate fees have gone up a straight to for applied science and engineering; in arts and science; for medicine; for physical education, law and business. At Memorial University in St. John's, Nfld., fees are un- changed at a course per term, or an average of a term. The university also ex- pects a I0-per-cent increase in enrolment over the full- time students last year. On- campus housing units will cost the same: a semester for a double room, for instance, A t Dalhousie University, Halifax, tuition fees this year will increase by about This brings arts and science costs to from law from medicine from dentistry from health professions from and graduate fees to from Room and board cosEs for a single room will be this year compared with last year. Dr. Henry IX Hicks, presi- dent of Dalhousie, said the tu- ition increases were neces- sary because of the provincial government's low grant.

Dug aid Blue, registrar at the University of New Bruns- wick, Fredericlon, said "a modest increase" is expected over the students in at- tendance last year. He added it was probable tuition fees would be slightly higher than the standard last year, although no final decision has yet been made. At University of Prince Ed- ward Island, Chariottetown, tuition fees will remain the same but residence fees will increase to SEE NO CHANGES Montreal universities expect no changes in the fee struc- ture, student enrolment or entrance requirements. A Grade 11 and a junior col- lege diploma should get a stu- dent into the University of Montreal, provided he can pay the average tuition fee of Loyola's fees range from for arts to for engi- neering, with McGill fees be- tween and Sir George Williams fees range from for arts and com- merce to for engineering. "Enrolment for the coming year will probably be lower this said Brace Smart, assistant registrar at Sir George Williams. "One reason'is that the pop- ulation has levelled baby boom is over." In the Western provinces, the catch-word for tuition fees and residence charges ap- pears to be "unchanged." But enrolment, expected to be about the same this year as last year, may decline in the cov'ng years, officials pre- dict.

In questions to the treasury board president, C. M. Drury she said the pay loss is due to Hie fact that year are paid on an hourly rather than a weekly basis. They hadn't been told that tin summer work week is 35 hours and, on an hourly basis, they would end up earning less thai they did when they were paic by the week, she added. Mr. Drury said he will look into the situation. versity of Winnipeg, where most students take arts and science courses, the fees are unchanged at and at Brandon University the fees for all science, music, education or agricul- the same. A university spokesman said a recent study showed the rate of growth of the stu- dent population ha: tapered off from the level of previous years, and indications are it will continue to drop. At University of Saskatche- wan, fees in arts, science, en- gineering, education and busi- ness administration are un- changed at Most faculties charge a year at University of Alberta. Engineering and graduate studies cost while medi- cine and dentistry are all unchanged from last year. A. L.

No change is expected at University of British Colum- bia where arts, science and education tuition fees were last year.

(CP) A ship equipped to tell whether there arc oil-bearing formations in the land under the sea is the latest tiling in the Canadian hunt for oil. The GS1 Mariner, designed and constructed in Canada spe- cifically for marine seismic ex- ploration, is a first for Canada. A Calgary company, Geophys- ical Service Inc., which oper- ates the ship, has with the most modern geophysi- cal instruments. The Mariner was designed by William R. Brown and Asso- ciates of Vancouver, con- structed by Alem Construction Ltd. of Edmonton and launched at Hay River, N.W.T. Alter a shakedown cruise on Great Slave Lake, the Mariner sailed down the Mackenzie River to Inuvik, N.W.T., and began operations in the Beau- fort Sea, that expanse of water north of the northwest corner of the Northwest Territories and north of Yukon Territory and Alaska. The vessel is manned by a crew of 12 and has a cruising range of miles. Seismic exploration is a method of finding out what kind of rock formations are below the surface by blasting and in- terpreting the sound waves that come back.
