Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 3, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta If - THI LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Wednesday, March 3, 1971 University serves community U of L head tells Alta. WI By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor Intolerance, even arrogance Is evident in many of today's university campuses, Dr. Sam Smith, president of the University of Lethbridge, told the 100 women attending the 50th District 4 Alberta Women's Institute conference Tuesday. Dr. Smith in referring to a six-month sabbatical he spent in 1970 during which he visited 25 universities in countries around the world, said arrogance was a disease to bp guarded against. "I wish I could say that arrogance was restricted to the unlightened outside of the university, but it is not the case. Beta Sigma Phi fashion show March 16, 17 Trend - setters, '71- the annual fashion show sponsored by Beta Sigma Phi sorority, will be held March 16 and 17 in the Yates Theatre at 8 p.m. Co - conveners for the two-day event are Mrs. Joan Erd-mann and Mrs. Pat Hooper. Commentators will be Maxim Higgins and Reno Lizzi. Organ music is to be provided by Bert Walton. Entertainment will be the scholarship winners awarded m the Lethbridge Music Festival, by the sorority. Tickets are now on sale by sorority members. SUNSHINE TEA The Women's Auxiliary to the Lethbridge Auxiliary Hospital will hold a Sunshine Bag Tea, April 28. All proceeds will be used for the comfort and care of the patients. It is often in its most hideous form on campus," he said. He said there have always been the haves and have-nots, the long-hairs and the no-hairs, but there is a new viciousness in opposing philosophies. "The right of men to disagree without dishonor has disappeared." People would destroy those who disagree with them. The theme of the WI conference, World at your Door, was used by Dr. Smith to illustrate the need for awareness of the risk of incipient arrogance. Quoting from author Lionel Rubinoff, Dr. Smith said that it is a peculiar characteristic of Canadian federalism that no occult commitment such as "the Canadian way," or "the Canadian dream" has arisen. "Canadians are not driven by neurotic needs to find their identity." Canadians are therefore more free to find, discover, reject and experiment. A form of arrogance to be avoided was the narrow, self-destructive provincialism. Examining arrogance oh the university campus Dr. Smith said the university must reach into the community and adopt continuing education as the overriding educational scheme, not as a preipheral venture. "It's high time that universities, such as the University of Lethbridge began to concern itself with programs which are useful to existing society." He said programs are needed which are practically oriented and which have immediate, social usefulness. "We need to educate the bill payers. "I am not impressed by those who say it is not our role, or that it is demeaning to redesign our program. Suggestions of possible reform for universities included the intensive experience of reality testing "we're getting too big for our britches", and facing the reality that unchallenged acceptance of the university was changing. "It's so much fun to be the saviour of the world," he said. Dr. Smith touched on the Alberta WI brief which was submitted to the Worth Commission on education. He said he enthusiastically endorsed tha recommendation that additional universities be constructed rather than enlarging upon present facilities. Those present at the conference could "put the heat on" universities for reforms, he suggested. "See that institutes of higher learning include international perspective in its programs. "If we in our ivory towers hear from you often enough wc are going to do something. Organizational inertia is a terrible thing. I urge you to attack us. our phony assumptions and our faults."

Home economists fmust be counted? "We, as a profession haven't taken a stand on current important issues such as the Royal Commission on the Status of Women, pollution, etc.," stated Mrs. Mona Cox, last night at a meeting of the Lethbridge Home Economists Association. She told the members that the organization has to start to take definite stands on pertinent matters. "We must stand up and be counted." Mrs. Cox, who was in Lethbridge for a two day visit, is the associate, head of the home economics extension department, Alberta Department of Agriculture, and also public relations officer for the Edmonton Home Economists Association. Mrs. Cox spoke on the subject, how home economists can relate to their community today, and explained how the Edmonton branch of the Association was endeavoring to become an integral part of the community. Some areas in which the home economists are beginning to become active in are: television and radio spot commercials to correct any misleading statements or claims made by "food faddists", university curricula, day care centres and their menus, senior citizens homes and their menus, local politics, drug information, homes for unwed mothers, end programs involving the many Indian reservations around Edmonton. The Indian program included one in which natives moving to the city of Edmonton would receive aid, and information to help them integrate into the city society. Another program which the Edmonton association has become involved with is working with former patients or patients soon to be released from mental institutions. The individual association member would work personally with each person and help to re-acquaint them with society. They would act as a liaison between societies. Mrs. Cox stated mat home economists must reply to the challenges which are now being made to them by differ* ent members of the community. "We must become a vital working part of the community or we will be classed with other non - professional groups. We must remember that we are professionals." ski weekend The Lethbridge YMCA is now accepting registration for another ski-weekend excursion to be held March 19, 20 and 21. This trip will be to Big Mountain Ski Resort in Whitefish, Montana. All ski excursions are being co-ordinated by Dieter Gerngross, Family Y health club director, and ski club coordinator.
