University criticizes enrolment survey Dj RUDY HAUGENEDETl Herald Slaff Writer University of Lethbridge offi- cials, some of whom arc still upset at a recently published Herald survey which shows en. rolment figures are not Inclin- ed to increase this fall, stead- fastly maintain the survey is inaccurate. The reaction to the survey among university faculty varies from to tak- ing the survey in stride. Some of those who are "tak- ing it in stride" maintain the report is valuable advertising inasmuch as many people who were previously impervious to the existence of the local uni- versity and its problems have suddenly sprung to its defence. Mike Sutherland, U of L In- formation officer, said no U of I L figures are available to show SUMMER STORE HOURS JUNE, JULY, AUGUST MONDAY TO SATURDAY a-m-to 5 p-m- FRACHE'S MARQUIS FLOWER SHOP FLOWER SHOP 322-6lh St. S. 614 4th Ave. S.

NORTH PLAZA FLORIST 618- 13th St. N. the number of students who In- dicated they would attend the facility following a university enrolment drive which occurr- ed on the heels of Tho Herald's survey. He said the university intent at southern Alberta schools was to outline the benefits of attending this city's postsecon- dary institution, not to force students to quickly decide about the U of L. At least 35 per cent of thoso graduating matriculating stu- dents in southern Alberta will attend the U of. L, he said, compared with indications in The Herald survey that only 20 per cent would. Bill Beckel, U of L president, also maintains the 35 per cent figure is accurate. While local officials de- nounce the published survey, university presidents at the universities of Alberta and Saskatchewan announced they expected enrolment figures to drop at their respective inslitU' tiODS. There Is "considerable evi- dence" that enrolments of. full- time students at the University of Alberta will drop sharply during the next four years, University of Alberta president Dr. Max Wyman said. Dr. R. W. Begg, principal of the University of Saskatch- ewan's Saskatoon campus, said registration at Saskatoon fell by 250 students last fall follow- ing a trend that started two- years ago. He told the spring convoca- tion that enrolment at both the Regina and Saskatoon campus, es declined by a total of 600 students last year. Expecting the current trend to continue, he said, "we must at least make some plans for consolidation and examine the possibility cancelling some colleges and programs."

SELVADGE EDGE ROOFING Knight-of-yeor Alfred S. Tedesco received the Grand Knight of the Year award at the 62 annual conven- tion of the Alberta Knights of Columbus, held in Edmonton. There are councils in Al- berta. Mr. Tedesco is the Grand Knight ol Council No. WOO. Lethbridge The question of a site for mo- torized recreational vehicle owners to use remains in limbo. City council Monday defeated a motion lo consider couleo land southwest of 9th Ave. and 4th St. S. undesirable for MRV use. The resolution was based on a report from the Oldman Riv- er Regional Planning Commis- sion. The result of the vote left the subject in the lap of the ad- minstration to come up with a suitable proposal. The ORRPC reports points out the Andrew report on river valley development does not derignatc the area for MRVs. Council has endorsed the And- rew report. In submitting his motion, Aid. Chick Chichestetr said the noise caused by motorcycles Golf club and city reach agreement cannot be shielded and would be n nuisance to residents in the immediate area of the coul- ee. Hi suggested an MRV park be located outside the city. Aldermen Cam Barnes find Steve Kotch said the MRV users should find their own place and the city should not be involved. "Some things are practical for ua to Aid. Kotch said. "This is r.ot one them." The tact that motorcyclists are now using the coulees caused Aid. Vaughan Hembrofi some concern. If you provide them with one area to "rip lo I at least they might stay out of the rest of the cou- lees. Flood threat continues The weatherman now appar- ently holds the key to flood con- ditions in southern Alberta. River levels in the region slightly below the forecast high wctor peak for this year and are expected to remain at these levels unless the weather condi- tions change drastically. Ron Knight, officer with water resources branch of Uia Alberta department of agricul- ture, said very hot weather, which would cause rapid melt ing of the snow in the moun- tains and rainfall on a largs scale would cause the rivers lo rise to flood conditions. He said the hydrology branch in Edmontcn predicted a high water flow of cubic feet per second but, tiu's morning, both the Brocket and Leth- bridge measuring stations re- ported levels of cfs. Mr. Knight laid the river would have to rise another six to eight inches before the high water peak would he reached. He stressed that the weather conditions would have to get to the extremes to causa tlus to happen. A series of recommendations as a base for an agreement be- tween the city and the Hender- son Lake Golf Club, including a provision to ban the non-golfing public from the perimeter ol the course, was approved by city council Monday. The proposal attempts to place the operation of the golf club "squarely on the shoulders of the executive of the City Manager Tom Nutting said in a letter to council. One area where Ihere Is now ambiguity concerns tho public use of the golf course land. The agreement will give the club re- sponsibility for operating the land as a golf course with no provision for non-golfers such as boaters or picnickers. The clause is intended as safety measure. The city will install a sign in the lake warn- ing boaters to stay away from specific areas such ns the 8th and 10th tee and green. As it is now, "we are encouraging very dangerous practice which may result in serious injury and are creating animos- ity between golfers and other members of the public The city will also loan the club for construction of a new water line on the course, installation of an electrical line to the repair shop and paving tho clubhouse. The original recommendation proposed the city pay for tho improvements. Council also accepted the fol- lowing recommendations: the city will maintain the hedge and boulevard on the south border of the course on 90 IB. SLATE SURFACED ROOFING 1 rolls will cover 100 iq. fl.
