Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 25, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE IFTHKIDCl HEUIO VMittUiy, Mirth Commission 'Kidding ItselF LOOKING OVH THE NfW UNIVaSITY-Ron Bain, !eft, a senior architect with Erickson-Massey and ates involved in master planning of the new University of Lethbridge, West Lethbridge campus, points out details on the model of the final building design to Dr. Neil Holmes, chairman of the U of L board of governors; Dr. Bill Beckel, acting president; Garry Hanson, another Erickson-Massey architect, who will be the company's resident supervisor of the Lelhbridge project for the next few years; John Russell, a member of the board of governors and chair- man of the board's building committee; and Bob Corn- stock, capital development officer for the universily. The six are major officials in charge of the U of I's develop- ment, which is scheduled to see completion of the million building shown in the picture completed by late 1971, and a further to completed during following 10 years. Formula For University Financing Set By Department Of Education American Says TV Plan Unrealistic The manager of a Great Falls clevision stations says tiie Can- adian Radio-Television Commis- sion is "kidding itseU if it bails ecluiological progress." Don McClinlock, manager of which was gutted by ire last November, was refer- ring lo Ihe CllTC's recent ten en the use of microwave as a carrier for Amcriran TV show's into Canada. Mr. McClintock. who visited Cab'.evision Lelhbridge Ltd., said the CllTC's proposals to increase Canadian content on TV, was "a fine nationalist en- deavour, but I question if Ibcy're going lo get enough product." He said there was an "evei- increasing regulatory fever in the U.S.." with tighter controls being laid on commercials con- centration of media control and the amount of TV violence. He said, of Vice President Spiro Agnew's charges against the media, "there is no ques- tion that his view's represent the administration. I think it's unprecedented that such a high level official should single oul one Industry like this for crifi cism." Mr. McClintock suggested it was difficult for to cover stories the way they ac- tually Iiappened "because un- doubtedly some people starl clouting each other when they realke the camera is on Item "I don't mind criticism if it's justified, and sometimes it is There's a story that Stokery Car- michael (U.S. black power ad- vocate whose activities were given extensive media cover- age) had a public following of five Negroes and while newsmen. "But the Rocky Mountain stations shouldn't be lumped to- gether with those in New York iVe spend most cf our time giv- ng out storm warnings and help ing people find lost dogs. "I think we do a prclly de- cent job." STARTED IX JOSi KFBB-TV, established in 1954, is owned by Hsrriscope Broad- casling Co. of C.i'ifornia atxl is affiliated with all three U.S. networks CBS, NBC and ABC. Programs are picked up in Lolh- bridge via cablevision's chan- nel 11. The station has purchased 17 acres of land near Great Falls following fire damage estimat- ed at million to downtosvn facilities of KFBB and an AM radio station, KKG1I. Building space will be expand- ed from to square feet in the move, and the new tower will be feet higher than the oil! one. Mr. McCUntock, station man ager for more than five years said new equipment, costing would be "wall-to-wall.1 When the station opened Aug 15 in its new site, it would have the "most modern set-up in the world." The staff numbers 30 people, ncluding two newsmen, who urrently work out two nio- ile homes and a smallish pre- abricaled building. During the new two months, he station pro-screens the net- voi'ks1 new shows, in New York and Los Angeles, for the fall schedule. VATIONAL SPONSORS Network shows are backed by national sponsorship, with the independents being paid for run- ning Item. If independents re- iect a program, such as the Joey Bishop or Lesley Uggams show, it's a goner. On Canada, CBC and CTV af- filiates must take certain na- tionally-sponsored shows cffcr- ed by the networks, regardless of the stations' preferences.) Pre-screenirigs are attendee1 largely by U.S. independents Canadian independents and the two national Canadian net- works. And previews can be a case of win-some-lose-some. The CTV had Ihe foresight to pick a show three years ago which has been the biggest sue cess on television for the pasl few years Laugh-In. The CBC finally got on the band wagon this year and outbid the privately-owned network for the comedy series. In -Mr. McClintpck'e case, i was the Beverly Hillbillies v.hicl he said he wouldn't touch when he first saw it. The folksy series has been ;oing strong (at least up to this but Mr. McClintock said le still thinks it's the "biggest source of air pollution in Amer- ica." ELECTED Gtrald Tail- ftflhers of Ihe Blood Initial reserve, noted artist, has been elected a member of the new Indian Arts and Crafts committee established Tues- day in Ottawa. Ttu' commit- tee will work wilh the depart- ment ol Indian affairs to Im- prove production and mar- keting ol Indian Arts and crafts. Clifford Wlietung, Ojibwa Indian from Ontario was elected chairman of committee. JIM three Herald Education most of their Research, public service, teaching, learning these are the goals of a university, says Dr. Bill Beckel, acting president of the University of the government, and a small amount from sludent ees. Both are fixed by the pro-ncial department of educa-on through the universities tud Th TS ea bridge. However, achieving these goals costs money, and Dr. Beckel says Ihe provincial government seems unwilling to provide sufficient financing to make them government bases its ipport to each university on B number of students its cam-us has and the complexity nd expense of the programs ach student is taking.

The fact that life is changing, improving, is becoming more implicated means that a uni ersity must also change with times, and improve itsel long with the improvements assists society to make. WO PER CENT IDEAL An ideal improvement factor would be about two per cent o ie total operating budget eac ear, he said. This would mean for the U of L and about million for the irovince nest year. "If we combine improvemen with inflationary increase, w hould have had an increase in the grant per student for nex year of between seven and 1 ler Dr. Beckel said. The actual grant per studen increases given by the govern menl was only one per cent. "The one per cent incrcas ;imply means that somethin to go backwards: either salaries or supplies or books o administration or space or nev faculty or a combination he said. The government claims it ha. actually given a grant incrcas of about eight per cent, but "insists on forgetting Ihe extr money we were given last yes and that we were told to kee for this Dr. Beckel sal (A surplus resulted from unexpected increase in slude enrolmenl last year, but U universities were not allowed spend money then. The curre grant per student is the sai as it was last year, but the go1 ernmcnt allowed Ihc sum to supplemented by the surpl funds left over. The government's claim of an eight per cent grant in- crease for next year is based actually on last year's grant, not on this year's supplement- ed figure. (Still, its claim that it added eight per cent lo Ihe available funds is at least an indirect agreement with Dr. Bcckel's argument for the level of in- creased grants needed to achieve the universities' goals.) Dr. Bcckrl said the govern- ment's action will result in more students next year receiv- ing an education that insuffi- cient money has been spent on, since the universities have also been told rot to limit enrol- ment.

And if the people of Alberta want to continue to receive the benefits resulting from effec- tive and quality university edu- cation, he said, then they must Immediately write letters to tell the provincial government that they want more money made available to the university sys- tem.
