ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL Centre Village Mall 328-3201 The Lethfaidge Herald SECOND SECTION Lethbridge, Alberta, Tuesday, May 29, 1973 PAGES 11 TO 20 LETHBRIDGE OFFICE FURNITURE LTD. 7th Street Shopping Mall Lethbridge, Alberta (403) 32S-7411 FILING CABINETS Engineer explains pedestrian lights When does "don't walk'" really mean When you are in the mid- dle of the street, obviously. But city traffic engineer, Peter Bowkett says he often gets calls from people com- plaining of walk signals that turn to "don't walk" before they have time to make it across the intersection. Mr. Bowkett explained that after the "don't walk" signal comes on there is still plen- ty of time to continue across the street before the traffic lights change. At a street 80 feet wide, for example, the walk signal may be on for only sjven seconds, but there will be a further 20 seconds before the traffic signal turns amber, and another 4.8 seconds be- fore it turns red. The 20 second interval is timed specifically for pedes- trians and is based on a walk- ing rate of four feet per sec- ond. The total time a person would have to cross the street then amounts to 31.8 seconds. Mr- Bowkett said some lights in the city are still based on a walking rate of 4.8 feet per second, but all will be standardized to the four feet per second rate within a month. "The walk says Mr. Bowkett, "is really just a go signal." "The only thing don't walk means is don't leave the curb because for sure you won't have enough time to make it across then.''

In his last speech to a graduating class before he steps down, Dr. Wyman said the attainment of universal accessibility to "the re- sources of higher education is beyond the scope of this Throughout uanada. gov- ernments had accepted uni- versal accessibility to higher education as their goal. "As sincere as their convic- tion might be, the implication of tiie possible attainment of such a goal is a hoax that is causing frustration and tility for those people who seek the upward economic mobility a professional edu- cation can give." Hs said it is expected that the government soon will limit the ultimate size of the University of Alberta, the province's largest university. This decision will ''imply quotas for every faculty and school at this university." wasaki Doe; your motorcycle meet government regu- lations?

"T h e same phenomena exisfs in dentistry, law, den- tal hygene, nursing and sev- eral other faculties and schools. In total, there arc about to fully- qualified Alberta students who are denied admission to the program, of their choice." In addition, denial of ad- mission was "normally equiv- alent to the kiss of death" be- cause few of the refused ap- plicants would get into anoth- er university. "In such a situation, it is natural to criticize our se- lection procedures, a criti- cism that ignores the fact that any procedure must make denials for admission five or six times as great as the number who receive ac- Dr. Wyman said.

Although the university will do everything within its power to increase class sizes, ''the increases will be infinitesimal compared to the demand, and this dispar- ity will be with us for many years to come." The hurt inflicted on the families whose sons and daughters are refused admis- sion to the programs of their choice is often translated into hostility toward the institu- tion itself. But, Dr. Wyman said ne- ither the university nor the province can be blamed for restricted enrolments. "There is a definite limit to the financial support a province can give toward the education of people for pro- fessional careers, and that limit is well below the de- mand that exists at the pres- ent time. ton, was remanded to Friday when he appeared in court.
