Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 22, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 - THI LITHMI0OI HIRALD - Monday, March 32, 1�7f ... Gordon Campbell, V of L has college book published By JIM WILSON Herald Education Writer In the midst of the current outcry over a lack of Canadian-written and published text and reference books, Gordon Campbell of the University of Lethbridge has produced the first book ever written about the community college movement in Canada. The book, Community Colleges in Canada, was published by Ryerson Press, the former Canadian publishing house now owned by McGraw-Hill, of the United States. Community Colleges in Canada outlines and analyzes the various forms colleges take in Canada's 10 provinces, and provides a complete and comprehensive listing of each college, its general offerings, tuition, financing, size and administration. The book will be bought pri- marily by Canadian colleges, universities and libraries, and by embassies and libraries in other countries. "There are more community college students in this country than there are university students, and the colleges are competing heavily for funds," Mr. Campbell, an associate professor of education said in an interview. "However, there has been precious little research or planning done in the college realm, and I hope the book will help point the way." He includes technical institutes and agricultural colleges under the blanket term "community colleges." Mr. Campbell said plans are now underway for a second edition of the book, in revised form and printed in both French and English. As with the current edition, it would contain a number of sugges- Turin man heads county committee Bert Magyar of Turin, was elected chairman of the Lethbridge County Extension Advisory Committee at its annual meeting held in Lethbridge recently.

John Murray, McNally, Gerrit Withage, Nobleford, Lawrence Phillips, Barons, and Elizabeth Bartman and Cal Brandley, Alberta department of agriculture, Lethbridge. Exchange students' schedule set Alderman C. W. Chichester, chairman of the committee organizing a student exchange program with Lethbridge's twin city of St. Laurent, Quebec, has released details of the proposed itinerary. The group of 22 Lethbridge students is scheduled to leave June 25 for St. Laurent and return with the 22 Quebec students, July 11. The group of 44 students will spend time in Ottawa, Winnipeg, Calgary, Banff and Lake Louise on their way to Lethbridge from St. Laurent. During a planned two - week stay in the city the 22 students from Quebec will go camping, visit the Nikka Yuko Centennial Garden, attend Whoop-Up Days and take several side trips to district points. The Travel and Convention Association of Southern Alberta is arranging for local students in the various communities along the way to meet with the visitors. The total budget for the trip is $11,760. Each of the 44 students is to contribute $50, the two sponsoring cities will spend $4,260 and the federal department of the secretary of state has been asked to contribute a $5,500 travel grant. SWIFT ACTION A porpoise's brain works so swiftly that a computer has been used to keep pace with it, THE LETHBRIDGE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE Will Hold lis 82nd ANNUAL DINNER at the EL RANCH0 CONVENTION CENTRE TUESDAY, MARCH 23rd - 7 P.M. Guest Speaker-MR. CLAUDE RYAN editor and publisher of "Le Devoir," Montreal Tickets avoloble at the Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce office at $6.50 per person A warm welcome is extended to surrounding Chamber members and their wives - also the general public to attend this dinner.    tions for additional community college research and an extensive bibliography. He said the Alberta college system is perhaps the best in Canada, and although Mount Royal College in Calgary was started in 1910 as a Methodist-operated commercial and music college, the Lethbridge Community College was the first real community college in the province. LCC, founded in 1957, was organized loosely according to junior colleges in the United States, but without many of the flaws the American institutions contained. Mr. Campbell said Canadian community colleges become more and more like their American counterparts as one moves west from Quebec, where the institutions are relatively unique, to British Columbia, where they are nanced through local taxation and must be affiliated with local school boards. Alberta, particularly since it dropped the local tax base with its new Colleges Act, "has one of the most advanced systems on the continent," Mr. Campbell said. Every board of governors has community, faculty and student representation and is coordinated with other institutions through a provincial colleges commission. Mr. Campbell said community colleges are becoming increasingly important training institutions, where many students are returning for specific education after they receive degrees from universities and, discover the degree is not sufficient to get them jobs. He said there is a distinct need for a transfer arrangement between colleges and universities, particularly designed to allow students to experiment with post-secondary education in the more intimate college atmosphere, while they make career decisions which may or may not involve attending universities. College courses thus taken could be transferred then to universities if the student wanted. He said LCC should have university transfer courses for this reason, equivalent to the first year at any Alberta university. Combined with the LCC college and university preparation Grade 12 program, the university transfer courses would also allow students to finish Grade 12 and try out university-oriented studies at the same time. He said community colleges must grow up, but at the same time they must be cautious of their direction of growth. "The concept that colleges areadwarfofa grander institution, the university, is wrong," he said. "Colleges are institutions in their own right, and should not aspire to become universities, but instead should become excellent in what they are designed to do-directly serve the community in which they exist." Mr. Campbell said colleges should not be forced, as they are in Alberta, to stick to two-year programs, although he said most college courses should have no need of a third or fourth year. He said substantially-more research into community college functioning is needed in Canada, and suggested the establishment in Alberta of a national community college research centre - on a university campus.

Erwin Adderley, the commission's executive director, said one aim of the seminar would be to train development officers and secretary-treasurers from the various communities' in the application of the bylaws. He also felt the seminar would be useful to the commission staff in exploring problem areas in preparing new bylaws. One of the commission's functions is to prepare the appropriate bylaws' to control growth and development in the region. Without a development control or zoning bylaw the only restraint placed on development is through subdivision applications, which are processed by the commission. Ji a development does not involve subdivision of land and there is no control bylaw a person can build anything he wants, sometimes with unfortunate side effects. Mr. Adderley noted the case in which plans had been made to convert an abandoned railway station into a dormitory, a project that would not have been appreciated by the neighbors. It is developments of this kind, he said, that make it necessary to have bylaws to protect the interests of the community and, occasionally, the individual himself. Control is also needed for the efficient allocation of resources, he said. It is bad management to allow houses, for example, to scatter over a large area, thereby increasing the cost of servicing, he said. Control can be achieved through a development control bylaw or a zoning bylaw. The former is a kind of temporary measure used until a general plan has been drawn up on which to base the zoning bylaw. Lethbridge, for example, has a development control bylaw for the west side. This means that no development era take place within the annexed portion without an application being made and approved at city hall. After the area has been zoned a zoning bylaw such as the rest of the city has can be enacted. Most of the members of the planning commission now have some type of control over development. Mr. Adderley said all the original members have a general plan completed and all have a development control or zoning bylaw. Of the new members who have joined since 1969, only two urban and four rural members have not asked the commission to prepare a bylaw for them. Of the communities over 400 population, only Courts has no control bylaw. Mr. Adderley said the commission has been recommending the idea of control for some years, but the option rests entirely with the individual community. He said control on a regional basis may come through a preliminary regional plan that is being prepared and which is to be ready by April, 1972. Air masses mixing More snow likely Spring arrived Sunday? Repeat. Spring arrived Sunday? That's what the calendar says. As a matter of fact the official moment was 11:38 p.m. Saturday. Too bad it hadn't been Friday. It would have made good the term Frosty Friday! A warm low pressure system moving eastward from the Pacific is expected to cause more snow in southern Alberta late Tuesday, as it collides with, the arctic high currently lying over the province. Since the high pressure system arrived early Saturday, 3.7 inches of snow have fallen on Lethbridge, (.15 of an inch water equivalent) and temper- atures have been somewhat less than seasonal. ' The high and low temperatures Sunday were 17 above and nine below. The temperatures one year ago were 49 above and 19 above respectively. The high today should be near 20 above, with the overnight low sinking down to about zero. Temperatures Tuesday will be slightly warmer as the area comes under the influence of the Pacific system. Winds will be from the south east at about 20 m.p.h. today, switching to westerly Tuesday. The record temperatures for March 22 are 72 above set in 1939, and 14 below set in 1913.
