Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 6, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 - THI UTHMIDOI HIRALD - Saturday, March .*, 1971 Year-round university Sharp's proposal draws mixed reaction By THE CANADIAN PRESS Reaction from university officials was mixed to a suggestion this week that year-round operation of universities might re-lieve student unemployment, but those universities with extended terms indicated there is definite merit to the idea. External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp said in the Com* mom Wednesday that student employment and training programs will be necessary every year unless the university year is changed to provide year-round education. The statement followed an announcement that the federal government was to provide summer jobs, subsidized travel and training programs for at least 70,000 students this year. A survey by The Canadian Press showed some university officials bad reservations about what year-round operations might do to relieve student unemployment. But officials at those universities who now have some form of tri-semeters system indicated that it worked well in that students filtered into the labor market at intervals rather than all at once in the spring. Dr. John B. Macdonald, executive director of the Committee of Presidents of Universities of Ontario, said there was some evidence from two universities now operating a tri-semester system-University of Guelph in Ontario and Simon Eraser University in British Columbia-to indicate it was more costly than the traditional system.. But, he added: "There would be some, advantages such as the spread out of students looking for work." Dr. A, W. R. Carromers, president of the University of Calgary, takes a different view. "If we were to go to a tri-semester system we would have substancial enrolment in the fall and spring terms, and consider- able falling off of enrolment in the summer," he said, STILL JOBLESS "The students would still be out of university looking for employment." Magnus Flyno, dean of students at Sir George Williams University in Montreal, forsees another problem. "Most university administrators and academics would agree that education suffers qualitatively if extended for an entire calendar year," he said. "A student who wants to have the most effective education should have the opportunity to return to society periodically. Otherwise he becomes wrapped up in a sort of academic cocoon and loses his perspective. The university suffers accordinly." Programs at the universities of Guelph and Waterloo are attempting to counteract these criticisms. Waterloo president Dr. Burt Matthews said the courses take 'You don't bargain with bandits9 ANKARA, Turkey (AP) - United States Ambassador William Handley appealed Friday night for the safe return of four kidnapped U.S. servicemen held for $400,000 ransom. But the deadline for payment set by their kidnappers passed today with no word about their fate. "It is my fervent hope that those who are holding the four airmen have heard my appeal and will release them soon and safely," andley said in statement today. He said the Turkish foreign ministry arranged the broadcast over the state radio. The kidnappers, leftists called the Turkish People's Liberation Army, demanded payment by 6 a.m. today-11 p.m. EST Friday -and said they would shoot the Americans if the money was not forthcoming. The Turkish government refused to bow to the demand and after a meeting of the cabinet Friday night Labor Minister SeyfJ Ozturk said: "You don't bargain with bandits." The only official conciliatory gesture was the radio report of Handley's appeal. WON'T APPLY PRESSURE President Nixon told a Washington news conference Thursday that the administration would not apply pressure on the The TOWN CHEF LOCATED IN PROFESSIONAL BUILDING DOWNTOWN LETHBRIDGE Serves Afernoon Tea (or Coffee) EVERY AFTERNOON by . . . The Dining Room Fireplace Turkish government to negotiate with terrorists. A mammoth search for the kidnappers by police and Turkish troops led to a gun battle between students and troops Friday in which a student and soldier were killed and more than a doaen persons wounded. Troops tried to enter a dormitory of the Middle East Technical University and were met by a fusillade of shots and dynamite sticks from rooftops and windows. About 2,000 students were rounded up for questioning. The four U.S. Air Force radar technicians were sebed Thursday as they went from a radar station to their billets in Ankara. All of them-S.Sgt Jim-mie J. Sexton of San Angelo, Tex., and Airmen Richard Car* aszi of Stamford, Conn.; Larry J. Heavner of Denver, and James M. Gholson of Alexandria, Va.-were in civilian clothes and unarmed. The airmen are reported to have sent letters to Handley through a Turkish newspaper office, asking that the ransom be paid. The kidnappers' last statement, delivered with the letters, said that if the Turkish government did not broadcast acceptance of their demands "we will wait resolutely for the deadline."

WEDNESDAY, MAY 19 St. Michael's Auxiliary will hold a Spring Luncheon and Fashion Show at the Nurses Residence at 1 p.m. The best tobacco money can buy, five years rather than four to complete but no additional time is spent in university. A student is free to attend any two of the year's three 15-week.long semesters. When it comes to looking for work, either to pay for schooling or when he graduates, he can more or less pick his time. SAVE A YEAR The system also enables a student to complete a course at his own speed. He can, for example, obtain a pass degree by working for a straight two years, and so save an entire year on the traditional system. Year-round education also is available at the Univertity of Saskatchewan's Regina campus and Memorial University in St. John's. At Regina, says campus principal Dr. John Archer, it has proved a definite asset. "We have adopted our system on a tri-semester basis to meet flexible needs and while it is not infallible it has worked for us." Dr. Archer said the tri-semester system was particularly take half a class, go out and get adaptable in courses such as engineering when students could practical working experience, and then return to complete then* studies. STUDY YEAR ROUND At Simon Fraser, the tri-semester system enables students a degree in 2 2-3 years, says information officer Dennis Roberts. The University of British Columbia on the other hand has no plans to enter the tri-semester field, nor has the University of Alberta. Both have summer available to students who want them. - In Ottawa, Carleton University President Davidson Dunton says there are 5,000 students on campus every summer speeding up their education. "Perhaps the government should consider giving some financial support to these students who choose to go to school instead of work in the summer," he said. SERIOUS PROBLEMS Dr. Owen Holmes, University of Lethbridge dean of arts and science, said studies on the tri-semester system have indicated it would produce "serious financial problems'', mostly because of difficulties of staffing universities year-round. Dr. Holmes said a couple of American universities which had tried the system" had just about gone broke," and some of the political problems at B.C.'s Simon Fraser University appeared to be the result of its tri-semester format. He suggested the U of L's current program of a yearly summer session and intones-sion comprised "just r.bout another semester.'' Jim Fiehbourne, U of L coordinator of community relations, suggested it was "debatable" that the minister of external affairs would know more about the efficiency of a tri-semester system than the universities who have' studied the matter. "Maybe he wants to get the government out of its unemployment dilemma" by implying the universities take re-sponibJlity for it. Soccer results Tories', pollution bill receives first reading EDMONTON (CP) - The legislature, devoting -inWt' of the day to hot debate on the environment, Friday gave first reading to an opposition bill which would create new laws to control air, water and soil pollution.

Pakistan date set KARACHI (AP) - President Mohammed Agha Yahya Khan today ordered Pakistan's National Assembly to convene March 25 to draft a constitution for the country's return to civilian government, Yahya Khan's decision Monday to postpone the assembly indefinitely led to five days of violence in the suburbs of Dacca, East Pakistan's primary dry. Witnesses reported at least 20 persons died Friday in clashes between security forces and demonstrating workers, Dacca was reported calm early today. "As chief martial law administrator, I feel duty bound to resolve this impasse myself," the president said in a 15-minute speech read in English over Radio Pakistan. "I can't wait indefinitely." Although the original assembly was scheduled last Wednesday in Dacca, Yahya's broadcast did not mention a location for the March 25 meeting. Yahya put off the constitutional assembly after West Pakistan's political leader, Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, threatened that the delegates of his People's party would boycott the session. The BUI introduced by Bin Yurko (PC - Strathcona East), calls for establishment of a powerful Alberta Air and Water Pollution Control Commission. The 12  member commission woud develop pollution prevention, control and abatement programs, set minimum standards and have the power to bring polluters before the courts. Mr. Yurko's bill calls for $100 fine for persons who operate an automobile without a pollution control exhaust device approved by the commission. It also would provide for fines between $200 and $5,000 and-or one year in jail for ex- ceeding any of the standards set down by the commission. If pollution resulted in death to wildlife, the polluter also woud have to pay the costs of replacing the wildlife. The house also gave second reading to a government bill which would create a new department of the environment. Mr. Yurko said the government bill was disappointing because it offered nothing new in the fight against pollution. The only tiling new was a reorganization into one department "I thought we could lay the found a t i o n of legislation to meet the challenge of the future, not the past," be Takes verbal swipe New Tory chief will be named HALIFAX (CP) - Nova Scotia's Progressive Conservatives elect a new leader today in the first contest for the party's top post in 23 years. The party is out of power for the first time since 1956 following a narrow defeat by the Liberals last October. But thoughts of its recent misfortunes were far away Friday as 1,000 PCs jamed a downtown hotel end campaigning for the three can-didtes began in full swing. As nominations closed Friday night, Gerald Doucet, 33, a former education minister, appeared to have an edge over John Buchanan, 36, a one-time cabinet colleague and 39-year-old Mayor Roland Thornhill of neighboring Dartmouth. Both Doucet and Buchanan hold seats in the legislature. SOMETIMES CONSULT High-ranking Indonesian politicians sometimes consult Badui tribesmen, who claim soothsaying and spell-casting powers. Bob Dowling (PC - Edson) took a verbal swipe at Health Minister James Henderson, the man expected to be named minister of the environment, who maintains that Alberta's record in pollution control is second to none. "Alberta's work in pollution is not second to none," said Mr. Dowling. "It's second rate." The opposition barbs raised the hackles of Dr. W. A. Buck (SC - Clover Bar) who said Mr. Yurko te pretending to make himself "the saviour of the people of Alberta." He said the Progressive Conservatives pay nothing but lip service when they apeak on pollution. "If we could take all the peo- pe in Alberta on a three-week holiday across this province, Social Credit would be in office for another 105 years." Dr. Buck's remarks about Mr. Yurko brought angry shouts of "shame" from the Opposition benches. Hugh Horner (PC - Lac Ste. Anne) called Dr. Buck a disgrace to his constituency and said no member of the legislature works harder at or knows more about pollution control than Mr. Yurko. "They (government) are not big enough to accept expert advice when they get it free," said Mr. Homer. Debate on the government bill was adjourned. New wilderness areas The legislature also gave first reading to a bill which would create three wildernes areas in the Rocky Mountains. No deveopment would be allowed in the areas and persons wishing to visit them would have to do so on foot. Lands and Forests Minister Dr. J. Donovan Ross announced that Cline River Developments will be given permission to construct a $3 to $5 million resort compex on the David Thompson Highway west of Nordegg in west  central Alberta. The resort will have accommodation for 500 guests and will employ 200 persons year round.

Olson told the Commons Friday he will not rec-omend the appointment of F. F. Hamilton, chairman of the board of grain commissioners, to head the new Canadian grains commission. The comrnision is to replace the old board April 1 under terms of a new grains act now before Parliament. Replying to questions by Jack Mcintosh (PC-Swift Current-Maple Creek), Mr. Olson said he had talked with Mr. Hamil ton recently and told the board chairman he would not be recommended to head the new commission. Mr. Mcintosh asked whether the new chairman of the commission will be a "Liberal from the Prairies." Mr. Olson said Forest Het-land, a master farmer from Saskatchewan, would be a member of the grains commission when it is created. The agriculture minister said he had talked many times to Mr. Hamilton in the last two years "and he was well aware of my diasatlsfactiot)."
