Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 15, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta WEDNESDAY, MAY 15, 1946 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD PAGE THREE U. of A. Needs Million Dollars For Current Expenses, Says Newton EDMONTON. May Kobert Newton, president the {.-Diversity of Alberta, said today that the university will need almost for current expenses over and above revenue from the full lime students expected to at- tend next year. In report prepared for de- livery at today's convocation of 490 'graduating students, the university president said the in- sUtution was approaching dan- gerously near the point where it "either must consider ways and means of reducing expendi- ture or getting access to supplc- mentarr funds." BADLY OVERCROWDED With conditions among students and faculty overcrowded, with an urgent need for buildings and facili- ties and faced uriih a higher enrol- ment than ifae record ihis year, the president said something would hare to be done. McDougall church, where the con- vocation was held. was crowded for the event, led by provincial and uni- versity dignitaries, deans and pro- fessors in their colorful robes. For the Ssst time in years there were ao uniforms among the graduating students. Rr. Rev. iy. P. Barfoot. bishop of Edmonton, delivered the invocation. Mr. Justice Frank Ford, retiring chancellor of the university, receiv- ed Jhe honorary degree of doctor of laws along with Dr. Fred McNally, retired deputy minister of educa- tion. ADDRESSES GRADUATES EDMONTON, May Justice Frank Ford, chancellor of the University of Alberta, in a con- vocation address for de- livery today a free and inde- pendent judiciary was the real bul- wark of democracy and suggested that the international Court of Jus- tice now being formed could become the most potent power for preser- vation of peace. Addressing more than 500 grad- uate students, the juiiss of Alberta's appeal court "said "if, as is doubt- ful, the principle of freedom and independence can be applied to the "permanent court of interna- tional justice, now in the process of formation, the court may become a more potent power for the pres- ervation of peace than the security council of the United Nations or the assembly itself." WINS GOV.-GEN. MEDAL Many of the graduating students attending the convocation received awards as well as degrees and diplomas. The governor-general's gold medal was awarded to Robert George Christiansen. 22-year-old Edmonton student, who graduated with a bachelor of science degree in chemistry. Mr. Justice Ford himself was hon- ored at the graduation, receiving the honorary degree of doctor of laws. "It seems to me that never before in the world's history has there been such a disregard of law and the rights of others, not only among nations but, between groups and in- dividuals." he said. j of this trend are to be j found in the evasion, violation and defiance of laws for the proper reg- ulation of industry and in the dis- regard of any sumptuary law which j does not suit the individual taste. "It seems to be forgotten that many iaws may, and in the long i ran. do promote rather than dim- j inish freedom." He urged careful consideration of the great British heritage of gov- ernment; and law and the guarding against encroachment whether in- sidious or "I suggest that in our search for the means to preserve our dearly bought freedom we must remember that in our system of government with its three" executive and most re- markable feature is the rule of su- premacy of law."

Many ob- servers would say Russia comes close to being mistress of the continent. France temporarily has lost the strength to implement her claim to her former high title. Recently, however. France's cloud has shown a bit of silver lining. She has had promise of badly-needed foodstuffs. And her doubts as to where she stood in the estimation of her Allies must have been re- lieved by such demonstrations as their recognition of her as one of "The Big Four" at the foreign min- isters' conference which, more than incidentally, is being held in the French capital. On too of that she finds the United States -glad to carry out financial transactions on the old basis. The importance of seeing France restored to a state of confidence and well-fceing cannot be overesti- mated. For one thing there will be far less inclination on the part, of her public to grasp wildly jt polit- ical straws in an effort to Improve their position.
