Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 26, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 IHE IETHBRIDGE HERAID Ihuriday, Moreh 24, Loss In By commisson, the U of L has MI given a total operating ant of million. Hiis is not based on the num-r of students the campus has, ice the commission changed mind about ants this year after the out-y caused by the unexpected-low financing made the department of education 1, Alberta's tlirce universities, boi Tiis would mean that no mat- (on how many students attend ba j U of L this fall, the grant of 1 likely remain the same, un- I s further funds can be ac- the ired by either cutting other sii iversitics' budgets or gelling ag ditional money from the gov- Jt nment. J of L Acting President Dr. pn 11 Beckel said the grant would ge enough for the university to thi t by on this year, "but we'll th Jy float nilhout wiggling very th rd." Ur He said the commission gave th reasons for Hie small size of m e grant it made never Is us Ihe reason il does any- m and gave no indication po what Mill happen next year, ch "But there are strong indica- Ih ons that the most Ihe increase Ib ill be nest year is about five ;r Dr. Beckel said, "and ch e need about 10 per cent to er ake the university really C, orthwhilc." di He said four different possi- Ii lilies had been discussed with ol ic universities commission for of L financing, cone of which T ould really provide Ihe funds b w university needs this year p it is to continue developing, v Two suggested sums were s' igber: based on an- tt ripated student enrolment; an sioii KO.OW, based on a budget lus factor of 30 per cent. A irth suggestion was >ed on a budget bonus factor 20 per cent, f the university had received -SO per cent bonus faclor it juld receive under its original it would get cbcut Dr. Beckel said one of the jblems the U of L faces in ting adequate financing from universities commission is it it is much smaller than University of Calgary and iversity o Alberta, of whom commission will usually take are notice, le said the recent appoint-enl of L. A. Thorssen to the st of universities commission airman won't likely change a commission's altitude toward c U of L. Mr. Thorssen is currently airman of the board of gov-nors for the University of jlgary- He replaces Dr. Anew Stewart, who was at the me president of the University Alberta, on April 20. Dr. Beckel said be hoped Mr. lorssen would "bend over jckwards" to see the U of L's jint of view and help it to but feared the commis-on woa'.d slill be oriented to e two larger campuses first, nding the U of 1 JBI 5f j own, who said he didn't ean to be critical of the dis-ct's administration and spe- i-ilist advisors, "but you know f lat J think of specialists." t The board's early admissions licy, approved for last year, e owed 14 five-year olds lo at- nd regular Grade 1 classes i ter they were judged mature lough to start school by dis- t ict counsellor Bob Gall. Thir--nine children had been lest- f 1, 25 ot whom were not for early admission. i Assistant superintendent Lee jzekcki, in charge of ele-cntary schools, said the ex-eriment had been successful rd be recommended il should e continued Ihis year wilh ome slight modifications in olicy.

The parents must accept the ecision of llx; school district s to whether their children will e admitted or not. Dr. 0. P. Larson, superinten-ent of schools, said Ihe system similar lo procedures in use jr several years by the Saska-oon, Sask. school system. "I don't think we knov? rough about this to make a ecision right objected Ir. Brown. He called for turner investigation by the dis-ricl's administrators, "I think tliat's coonler-d trustee Doug Card. He re-ninded Mr. Brown that Mr. had submitled an 11-jage memorandum to the board the experiment's re-ults and complained that the had already spent more ime discussing a "well-pres-enled policy about early admission" than il had spent discussing a million budget. (The budget was approved afler about 25 minutes; the ear-y admission policy took about 40 minutes.) UofI The University of Lethbridge m is losing about in gov- a. eminent grants due to the Al- u. berla universities commission ignoring the financing agree- d ment under which the U ot L b was established. s Under the agreement, the uni- d versitv received budget alloca- g tioas "based on a total Said Igi ulliplied by a bonus faclor to i th il as a new and smaller be-liversilv. Sr Tne emergent bonus was to ccrease gradually each year, be lit Ihis year, when Ihe bonus sii lou'd ha've been about iO per its ml, the university has been gr iven only 23 per cent. er After extensive meetings with Interest Ii The Travel and Convention i Association of Southern is attempting to revive interest in a summer pageant in the j Oldman River-Fort Whoop-Up t area. loiters have been sent out to prospective interested parties i by the association, suggesting if the pageant does not go ahead in Lethbridge, the Pageant ary Tourist ar.d Convention a .ssbciation might pick i: up. U The pageant, initiated last 'a ear, was to present the history if the fort, its whisky trade, wrs onalities which operated ind used the fort and the ar-ival of the North West Mour.l-xl Police in 1874. Southern Alberta association j nanager Frank Smith, in the etter, indicated the Albert a Slenbow Institute is willing to j srovide assistance for the pro- a ect. a Three scenes from the pros- >eclive show liavc been by Lcn Sherman, com-ncrcial 'artist, and are to be made into 35 mm. slides. A draft script of the arrival of the mounted police and the search for the fort has been prepared. Tne organization of the pageant was to see the appointment of an over-all co-ordina-tor and tlirce main chairmen, for protocol, operations and production. However, the crucial position of co-ordinator has not been filled. Although il was hoped that the pageant could run this Jlr. Smith indicated there is no chance for it to lake place this year. Projections had set audiences at for each of four performances, which would incorporate the vignettes into the actual site they occurred on. It is believed interest in talking over the pageant by Calgary tourist officials has been heightened by Die success of recent Tnealre Calgary original play, You Two Stay Here, The Rest Come With Me. Written by TC artistic director Christopher Ne-.vton, the play dealt with the history of southern Alberta in tlse late IBOOs and early 1900s. It is to have a 10-day run in April at Ihe National Arts Centre in Ottawa.

Mr. Scott was addressing the annual meeting of the Taber Irrigation District. "The value of the present systems is depreciating faster than maintenar.ce and rehabilitation can build them up." The solution lo the problem may lie in pipeline distribution! systems or underground networks which have proved highly successful in the United States. The only problem In this method seems to be financing. Progress in this area is slow and difficull to reach, according to TID manager Ken Anderson. Concrete-lined ditches have proved successful but the TID feels that they must be extended and planned on more of a long term objective. "At this period of time, Ihe TID must seriously consider what it can afford in respect to present crop and economic situations. The farmers of this district must stay bouyant."
