Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 24, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE IETHBRIOGE HERAID Marcti 24. 1970 louncil Covers Heavy Agenda [n Four-Hour Session Monday HAS NO FRILLS University are often criticised as expensive and fancy, but University of Leth- bridge Acting President Dr. Bill Beckel says this is not so. The buildings are built to last at least 50 years; they must be flexible in design so that they are capable of altera- tions to adjust to changing requirements; and they should be attractive because people work more effectively and relaxed in pleasant surroundings. The recenlly-released model of the new million U of L campus aca- Danger Of 'Second Class9 Universities demlc building will look like, shown above as it will appear from the Lethbridge side, shows the mechanical levels at top, three academic levels, the cafeteria level and below, the library. The expanse of concrete onto which steps run is the top of the heating plant, which will be- come an open and possibly healed plaza. Below the cafeteria level at the other end of the building are several floors of residences, containing about 400 units. First Of Two Parts Acting President Of University Stresses Vital Role Of Finance By JIM WILSON Herald Education Writer The foundation of both pro- gress and improved living stan- dards is t h e university grad- uate, but Alberta's universities are in danger of becoming sec- ond-class educators, says Dr. Bill Beckel, acting president of the University of Lcthbridge. Much of what is taken for granted in agriculture, health sciences, engineering, forestry, fisheries, mining, manufactur- ing, business, cultural develop- ment, religion, entertainment and many oilier elements of life started with the university. However, Dr. Beckel said, any progress that universities can contribute depends on their being adequately financed, with sufficient money made avail- able for improving the quality of education offered to stu- dents, as well as covering cost increases caused by inflation. This year the Alberta govern- ment offered only about one per cent more money than the uni- versities operated on last year, which doesn't even cover the average six per cent over-all inflation cf expenses. "We must not continue fo be financially wounded or we may not be able to Dr. Beckel said. "The genera! pub- lic must decide whether we are to serve them adequately or not." If the universities are to serve adequately, he said, the people must tell the govern- ment to put up adequate finan- cial support. "I accept the assumption that the universities servo the peo- Dr. Beckel sold. "The problem is how lo leli Ihe peo- ple enough of what we are do- ing to get their support." He said there is a tension be- tween the university and Uic public thai leads to some mis- understandings of what a uni- versity a correspond- ing and unfortunate lack of sup- port.

The meeting will start at the board's administration building at !5th St. S., and is open lo the public. There is reported to be a good chance that the budget wiil allow a substantial de- crease in the supplementary requisition, which w a s 16.5 mills last year. The 1D70-1971 capital budget will also be discussed at the meeting, ar.d both may be given final authorization if they meet wilh trustees' approval. Other major agenda items will include school construction matters, the early admissions policy adopted last year for one year only, allowing five olds lo enter school under spe- cial condition, selection of a screening committee to select co-ordinators for Ihe reor- ganized administration and ap- pointment of a representative on the Lethbridge Head Start project. vnown and the untried, so it worries about the university be- cause H seems to be working against the people's way of life. These differenl approaches to doing things, Dr. Beckel said, are the cause of the tension bc- Aveen university and commun- tearning starts in the home, rat when it becomes more spe- cialized, children are sent to school; they even'.ually grad- uate from high school; and many go on to university and into a career, where they work to make all people's lives a bit belter. Individual people make small discoveries; eventually several hundred of these pieces all fit together and a major advance is made, in industry, business, literature, public service or any other profession.

And behind all major ac lhat improve our way o Iving, he said, "is the highe education made possible by the university, "Seen in this light, does matter whether some of the in labilants of the university a any one time, wear long o hort hair, install or don't in- stall contraceptive vending ma chines, explore the limits mird bending or no'.? "What really matters is tha in the best way and for rcos if their vyorking hours, peop] at the university are e.xplorin at the edge of Ihe unknown, o earning how to explore at it. Dr. BceM said that some- imcs the public becomes com ilacent about its universities gnornir.g both their conlrilm ions to society and the proh cms they face. When this happens, "the gov ernment feels free to supply in iiiffieient money, as it has fo next year." He said about 50 per cent o a university's operating budgi is spent for salaries 40 pe cent for faculty and 10 per cen 'or administrators, secretaries maintenance workers and othe support staff. Faculty salaries are high, he said, because universities in- cluding the U of L must com- pete for them on a worldwide and in to get the most able teachers, com- petitive salaries must be offer- ed. "Salaries also reflect the training of the faculty, and al- most all faculty at the profes- sional level today have studied at least seven years beyond higli Dr. Bcdiel said. They are in debt to about by the time they finish, since they have usually had to borrow money to live on and pay I heir university expenses while studying. They have also lost seven years of working time, which could mean as much as in lost wages: to make up for Ihcir education expenses and lost time in improving their standard of living and posses- sions (as they could have if they went directly into a job after high scliool) they must earn about more than other people. It h to catch up that they want high salaries. Many non-professional sup- port staff such as secretaries are essential to keep a univer- sity operating efficiently and economically, he said, and to reduce their number would be similar to taking nurses out of the hospitals and making doc- tors use much of their time do- ing the less-speciafeed jobs nurses do.
