Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 13, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Most to become Canadian citizens Half U of L faculty born outside Canada By JIM WILSON Herald Edncation Writer According to a Heraild sur-v^, more than half of the University of Lethbridge faculty was bom outside of C^mada, but about 57 per cent are now Canadian citizens and about three-xx>:::v-^ What importance has citizenship? What makes a good administrator? A good teacher? Citizenship really has little to do with it. University of LeUi-bridge and Lethbridge Community College faculty members say. While they e-vpressed some reservations in a Herald survey concermng citizenship of faculty members of polit i c a 1 science, sociology and related departments, they said in others the individual's academic qualifications were of prime importance. One U of L respondent said, "All other things being equal, buy Canadian," and many others echoed his sentiments. Only three of 148 replies' to the 267 questionnaires sent to the two institutions said that citizenship should be considered first. One other said the faculty should be about 80 per cent Canadian, and one other said it should be mostly "Canadian or future Canadian." A number of respondents sug-gested Canadian institutions should follow another American example, and limit grantmg of tenure to Canadian citizens. Many American universities and colleges will employ faculty holding foreign citizenship for an unlimited time, but will not grant tenure (whicli guarantees permanent employment) until they acquire U.S. dtize* ship. Asked to define the important qualities in faculty and administrative personnel, most re-spondents used terms sudi as merit, competence, training, academic excellence, desire, general ability, communiation skills, wisdom, reputation, per* formance records, capability, compatibility. Those who expressed concern about citizenship being of SOME consideration in specialized departments also observed the possibility of classroom comparisons outweighed many of the disadvantages. One respondent pointed out that some of tiie best-known experts on Canadian history and Canadian political studies are Americans, teacliing to American universities. Cienerally, both Canadian and foreign teachers in the sociology, political science and his-tory departments expressed concern about care being taken in employment of faculty for theh- departments. They added that a mixture of birtfaplacai and citizenship was also necessary in those departments, to enable students to acquire a wide international perspective* G3nsimier subsidy urged to check inflation spiral By HERB JOHNSON Herald Staff Writer Eric Butler, national director of the Australian League of Rights, says the only way to break the current inflationary spiral is to intiroduce a form of consumer subsidy. Mr. BuUer, in Lethbridge as part of a cross-country speaking tour under the auspices of the (Canadian League of Rights, said if the federal government would subsidize certain basic consumer items the price would be lowered to the point where the average wage-earner could satisfy his needs. This, he said, was what the workers wanted but the only way they could achieve increased buying power under the present system was to go for higher wages, which simply resulted in eventual higher costs and another waige Mke request from the workers. The only way to break �i� spiral and achieve some degree of stability, he said, was to in. troduce a subsidy to bring prices down. Mr. BuUer said this would have to be preceded by gov-emment aid in handling debts. Speaking primarily of the plight of western farmers, he suggested the government should restructure existing debts into longer term loans - at least 25 years. At the same time the interest rate should be lowei'ed to around two per cent, he said. Farmers had been particularly haa-d hat by inflation, he said, because th^e was no one to whom they could pass on increased costs. Their only recourse was to try to make ends meet by in-creasmg production, with the result that there was an over-supply of produce, be said.
