CALGARY 1210-4511) Ave. N.E. 276-5344 College applies for student housing funds Student housing project fund application for Lethbridge Com- munity College has been presented to the department of advanced education for approval. The proposed project is for 16 student duplexes. College President C. D. Stewart told a meeting of the board of gover- nors Wednesday the department appeared impressed with reduced cost and stage system of develop- ment of the duplex designed hous- ing units. The proposed project is estimated to cost about a student to construct, compared to the to cost of constructing the traditional large apartment type student housing complex. The stage system of development allows the college to only construct enough units to meet its current needs and then build additional units at a later date if the demand for housing increases. Dr. Stewart said in an interview the college proposal to the depart- ment calls for the initial construc- tion of six or seven units around the small lake on the southeast corner of the campus. The student housing problem in the city has gradually become more acute during the past three years and many college students only received accommodation this fall after LCC issued a plea to home owners to open their doors to students. The college is in the process of gathering data about the housing shortage in the city and the opinions of its students about their accom- modation concerns. The data is to be sent to Edmonton to support its student housing proposal by December. government control and ownership of businesses, "leaving less and less freedom and power to the people. "If we don't start caring now. it will soon be too late. We haven't reached a dic- tatorship yet but if the provin- cial government now in power keeps going the way they are, we will reach that he claimed. He said the Progressive Conservative Government is taking more and mote power away from the Legislature and giving it to the cabinet. He said two steps had to be taken before the government could purchase PWA. "and those steps were taken." "First the Financial Ad- ministration Act was amend- ed to give the cabinet power to make regulations as to what kind of investments could be made with the Consolidated Cash Investment Fund. "Then the government made regulations which allowed it to buy any company that had shown a profit over the previous three he stated. PENNER'S PLUMBING 1209-2nd Ave. S.

The first step towards removing some of the bureaucratic red tape that has caused financial hardships for some students waiting for stu- dent loan approval was taken in Lethbridge Wednesday. The advisory committee on Alberta college affairs agreed in a Lethbridge meeting to recommend to Advanced Education Minister Jim Foster that the loan approval authority for government guaranteed loans be decentralized. Rural MD experience praised Two Lethbridge doctors and a Cardston doctor were among 30 physicians who met the University of Calgary medical faculty last weekend to review a program designed to expose students to rural practice. Doctors Maurice Simpson and Walter Gray of Lethbridge and Dr. John Hollingsworth, of Cardston, are among physicians from Southern Alberta and Southeastern British Colum- bia who serve as unpaid instructors for the faculty of medicine in the rural program. The organizer of the program, Dr. Morris Gibson, called the course a success, with about two-thirds of the medical students who graduated from the U of C last year choosing family practice as their specialty. Through the program, all medical students in their final year spend a month training and working in one of 15 small community or country hospitals. While family practice is emphasized by the U of C faculty of medicine, "many students go through training with only a sketchy idea of what general practice in the country is really Dr. Gibson said. dine dance at Erichscn's Friday Saturday THIS WEEK FEATURING 'STARLITE TRIO' WEST WINDS DINING ROOM cSvcn LI family restaurant Certified Dental Mechanic CLIFF BLACK, BLACK DENTAL LAB MEDICAL DENTAL BLDG.

Phone 327-2666 327-5747 The proposed change would transfer the authority to approve and grant student loans from the Edmonton based student finance board to each college that requests such authority. The committee felt the process of obtaining a student loan would be more efficient if it was carried out at the local level instead of at the governmental level. It felt the lenghty delays students experience between the time they apply for the loan and receive it are un- satifactory. Providing the loan granting authority to the colleges would also create an opportunity for college counsellors to help students make a sound judgement on how much money they should borrow, committee members suggested. Committee Chairman Jerome Robbins of Pincher Creek suggested that the stu- dent finance board still es- tablish the guidelines and procedures colleges must follow when granting loans so uniformity is maintained throughout the province. Other committee members agreed and after considerable discussion indicated that stu- dent appeals should also be administrated by the student finance board or some other body that is independent of the college. The committee expressed satisfaction with the student loan policy and the amount of money the province was allocating for student loans. They were merely dis- atisfied with the loan approval process that now forces some students to wait more than two months for funds that they need when they enrol at a college. Bargaining locally wanted Contract negotiations with faculty members should con- tinue to function at the local level, the Lethbridge Com- munity College board of governors decided Wednesday. The governors made the decision after being presented with a suggestion that colleges adopt province-wide collective bargaining that originated with the depart- ment of advanced education. Faculty representatives attending the meeting also in- dicated that they preferred to negotiate at the local level. The government grant to colleges next year will likely be increased by 15 per cent, the Lethbridge Community College board of governors was informed Wednesday. Reporting on a meeting he had with Advanced Education Minister Jim Foster, Board Chairman Bob Babki said the minister is prepared to increase the grants about 15 per cent in 1975 and 1976. The minister also indicated that any case of a college's enrolment fluctuating by either 10 per cent greater or less than its projected enrol- ment will be reviewed by the department.
