Planning pamphlets available The Task Force on Urbaniza- tion and the Future has pub- lished an informational pam- phlet dealing with the role of regional planning. The pamphlet outUr.es the re- sponsibilities, functions and or- ganization of regional planning commissions and is intended for use as a guide by a south- ern Alberta task force commit- tee on regional planning effec- tiveness. However the task force puts an emphasis on making infor- m a t i o n concerning planning commissions available to the public as well. With this in mind, and since is represented on the Oldman River Regional Planning Contmission, the task force has provided a limited number of pamphlet copies for general distribution. Those copies can be obtain- ed at the information desk on the main floor of city hall. Humor contest Dec, 6 University keen on new evening degree program The University of LeUi- briclgu IHIDOS several hundred people will enticed into en- rolment at its campus as a re- sult of the establishment of a full-degree program at night. "This will provide an oppor- tunity for people who work, or for soma other reason cannot attend university during the day, to still get their said Menno Boldt, assistant to the dean of arts and science for continuing education. The university will offer six specialties when the expanded service begins in January, 1972 hUtory, rrt, politi- cai science, psychology and English. "They will be exactly the same as the courses now be- ing offered during the said Prof. Eoldt. "In fact, all we are doing is i rearranging the times the courses are being offered. We are not adding extra classes." Prof. Boldt said the courses are systematically selected to lead to a BA degree in five years. University officials arc reluctant to predict how large enrolment will be in the pro- gram. There are approximately 500 students registered in part- time night classes now and it is hoped a large number of these will take part in the new degree program. It is also hoped that many former full-lime students who have found jobs will be drawn back to the university to com- plete their degrees. EuC'h course will be offered for three hours a night, one night a week. The cost to full-time students for the first semester will be while part-time students (those taking fewer than three courses) will pay a course. Prof. Boldt said the future of the program depends on com- munity reaction. "We are testing the com- munity with this program. If there is a Itealthy response then we are naturally going to offer more courses." He said there Is no addi- tional cost to the university be- cause courses are merely ing rcaiTf.nged. "It is also difficult to esti- mate how much money will come in Iiceause there are w many he said. Prof. Boldt said while the program was approved two months ago, it is not a sudden reat'Uon to the drop in enrol- ment Has fall. "Planning began about t year ago so the drop in enrol- ment had nothing to do with its establishment but we hope our enrolment will be in- creased as a result of UK pro- gram." Ad campaign bolsters enrolment at university New student enrolment at ths University of Lethbridge for the spring semester could be 150 per cent higher than ex- pected. It was anticipated about 35 or 40 new enrolments would be received for the spring semes- ter but applications have been received from about 100 stu- dents already. Increased enrolment has been attributed to the advertis- ing campaign conducted through the news media in cen- tres in western Canada. Jack Oviatt, registrar, said Uie increased enrolment will not affect the government grants which are based on stu- dent numbers. The base for the grant is de- cided by student enrolment fig- ures in the institution in De- cember. He said the increase will have a substantial effect on the next school year grant and the university budget.

The plan operates in all parts of Canada except where a prov- ince establishes its own com- parable program such as the Quebec Pension Pla-. However, in cases where a province conducts its own plan, the two are closely co-ordin- ated. Contributions to either plan are interchangeable when a worker moves to another area, says J. C. L. Bouchard, CPP district manager. CPP benefits are portable. He said, once a worker has con- tributed he cannot lose the right to the retirement pension based on the years of contribu- tions.

"If a worker leaves Canada, he retains Uie right to the re- tirement pension earned." Pension plan payments can be sent to individuals living anywhere in the world. The same applies to other benefits "provided the qualify- ing conditions are Mr. Bouchard said. Renefits under CPP are pay- able over and above Old Age Security Pensions.

By DON HAKKER Staff Writer Letbbridge is in the throes of trying to determine what i tend of library it stould have. i The obvious question arises as to the kind of library that will provide the best possible service to the citizens of Leth- bridge. One source of an answer is Lethbridge chief librarian, George Dew. Another is li- brary consultant John Dutton, who has been retained in an advisory capacity by city council. Added to these spe- cialists are oilier experts from i the school board and um'ver- sity. j It seems likely that Mr. Dew and Mr. Button will recom- I mend that the new library' be the keystone of a regional li- brary system, a system that would include most of south- western Alberta.

An eight man coroner's jury conferred for 45 minutes Thurs- day before returning with a ver- dict that the death of Bryan Frank Foss was caused by mul- tiple chest injuries received in a car accident. The inquest was presided over by Lfdibridge coroner Dr. John E. Morgan. It had been called to determine the cause of Foss' death, and who had been the driver of the car. The jury ruled Foss had been the driver and the accident had resulted because he was tired and had consumed a quantity of beer. The jury recommended young drivers should be made more aware of the effects consump- tion of alcohol has on the re- actions of a person driving a car. Ths jury also suggested stiff- er penalties be imposed for im- paired driving. brary would be able to pro- is i vide vastly-superior services for minimal cost increases.
