University Calendars Available The 1970 1971 University of Lethbridge course calendars are now available, and, can be acquired by visiting the uni- versity registrar's office, or by mail. More than copies of the 152 page calendar have been printed so far, and more are expected shortly. Only one major change Is apparent in the calendar's new streamlined form: one line reads, "The university re- serves the right to add, modify or withdraw any course or courses without notice, and to revise the semester schedule of courses." The statement is necessary following several court deci- sions in other university een- ires which termed the calendar as part of the contract entered into between a student and a university. This meant that a university was legally required to offer any program listed in its calen- even if only .one student was interested in taking it an expensive undertaking. The D of L calendar was re- vised and shortened fsom the .969 1970 edition, by Jim ?ishbcurne, community rela- tions co-ordinator. Miclielson Lectures In Montana Inspector Ralph D.
