CATHOLIC CENTRAL A unanimous com p 1 a i nl about the U of L is that it doesn't do enough to inform the potential students of what it has to offer. "No one from the students were interviewed; five said they plan to go to university in the fall None will fio to the University of Lethbridge.

They said the main a university close to home. Most of those who will not attend the U of L say the main reason is that the courses they want are not offered. Six of the eight students interviewed indicated they plan to go to university in the fall. Three of those said they will probably attend the University of Lcthbridge but al least one will transfer to Edmonton in a ever conies here, T think they commented one student. Only one of the eight students said he felt any identification with the U of L but five had a positive BYU and one Princeton. Again, a lack of courses had something to do with students going away.

"In five or six years il will probably be a rtrcrl but (hat doesn't do Four of the students fell "some kind" of identification with the local university while two had a distinct negative impression.

More Saturday. Education today said politicians' scapegoat The "intentional scapegoat- ing" of education is just a lactic being used by those in power to draw attention away from their own deficiencies, said Dr. John MacDonald, dean of the faculty of education at the University of Calgary, in an address to the Thursday meeting of the South- ern Alberta Council on Public Affairs. U was the final meeting of the group until the fall. Dr. MacDonald said there j has always been a tendency to place a lot of faith in educa- tion and, when things start to go wrong in society, as they are now doing, those in power heap as much blame as they can on the shoulders of education. He look issue with supporters of the idea of turning educa- tion over to business so it can be run more efficiently. He was critical of "a busi- ness world that has to be bailed out continuously by government subsidy, that apparently does not have the intelligence or im- agination to r u n passenger trains at a profit and whose manufactured goods are noted for their lack of quality." "There are those who say the money being poured into edu- cation is he said. "What about the money being poured into 11 government ad- ministrations in a country with a population of slightly more than 20 Compare this and other so- cial issues to education, he said, and education comes out look- ing like an incredibly success. ful investment. Commenting on the popular cor for accountability in edu- cation, Dr. MacDonald said it is already there, people just the aren't looking in places. "In every province, there is a department of govemrr.ent- and now sometimes two whose responsibility it is to right i manage education on behalf of citizens.

Dr. C. D. Stewart, president of LCC, said tlis college is con- cerned over the uncertain situ- ation surrounding the proposed new city arena. He said it looks like the city won't be going ahead for some time and so we have to take it to the board End look at it to see if we should go it alone." "My concern is that the col- lege is lacking considerably in physical education and athletic facilities." If the college does decide to go ahead and build its own fa- cility, it appears at this point that the city would still have to build its own ice arena. Dr. Stewart said the college arena would probably contain an ice facility but it wouldn't be the kind the city is looking for. He said if the college does build ils own arena he would expect it to be funded entirely by the provincial government. The college had been pre- pared to contribute lo the building of a new city arena which was to be located near the college. Dr. Stewart said he would be pleased to have a joint effort between the college ind the city but that the college needs to get to work right away on a new athletics facil- itv.
