Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 15, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHDRIDGE HERALD Monday, October 15, 1973 V of L administrators frustrated 'Senates should be politically active' By JIM GKANT Herald Staff Writer University senates in Alberta must begin to dig up political support for higher education in their com- munities That was the concensus among vocal University of Lethbridge senators Saturday during a discussion at a regular meeting of the U of L senate The discussion was sparked Art task force may strengthen theatre case A fine arts task force es- tablished by the University of Lethbridge senate Saturday could "have a great bearing" on whether a multi-purpose theatre complex will be built at the university, the U of L president says Decision on approval of a U of L submission made earlier this year for a theatre com- plex has been delayed by the government until the depart- ment of advanced education establishes new policies governing university financ- ing and program approval. If the task force can con- vince Southern Alberta com- munities of the value of a fine arts theatre at the U of L and show how it is related to fine arts interests throughout the South, then the university's theatre proposal to the government will make more of an impact. Dr Beckel told the senate The major function of the fine arts task force will be to form a liaison between the U of L and art, drama and music interests in Southern Alberta communities Dr. Beckel says the task force could assist the univer- sity in determining how the U of L fine arts programs relate to programs now offered in the surrounding communities, schools and colleges The task force is to consist Super Special! fluorescent Desk Lamp Just the thing for stu- dents or home offices' Brown enamel base and shade, goose-neck stem. 18" florescent tube included.

Dr Beckel said the donor would be asked to sponsor a scholarship for a student in the school of the donor's choice The donor would not be committed to funding the scholarship annually The senate agreed that im- mediate action must be taken to establish the scholarships and identify possible can- didates before the high school students with high scholastic achievements are offered scholarships to attend other universities in Canada R. C Ellison, on behalf of the Ellison Milling and Elevator Co., pledged toward a scholarship at the U of L during the senate meeting. The senate also approved a new coat of arms for the U of L. The design includes a full sun on a shield, a scroll, an open book and the words fiat lux (let there be light) The senate will now present the new coat of arms to the U of L board of governors for approval The meeting was attended by 36 of the 54 senators.

There are 54 persons representing the university and the community on the U of L senate and only 17 on the board of governors. Bob Kenny, executive- secretary of the University of Calgary senate, said the U of C senate has taken "exactly the same position.'" The government says it is moved by public input so it is up to the senate to create political pressure by obtaining more public support for higher education, he said. Dr. Oshiro said the U of L senate is still relatively new and is just beginning to find its place in the university organization, but its develop- ment could be speeded by finding out how other univer- sity senates in the province are operating. Dr. Beckel agreed that a liaison between the univer- sities in Alberta should be es- tablished because it was "bad- ly needed." One senator suggested the U of L senate could send representatives to University of Alberta and U of C senate meetings and have them report back. Another senator thought it may be wise for the senates of the three universities to meet as a unit once or twice a year. The senators decided to ob- tain a list of dates and times of future U of A and U of C senate meetings before asking its ranks for volunteers to represent the U of L senate at the meetings The U of L senate executive will also approach the two other senates about a joint meeting Mr. Kenny told the senators they would realize all three universities had similar problems by attending other senate meetings. It was obvious, during further discussion of U of L liaison with other senates, that certain members of the senate felt the department of advanced education m Alberta was its biggest problem. The department of advanc- ed education, earlier this year, withheld approval of un- iversity proposals involving finances and new programm- ing until it had established oew policy guidelines and the administrative machinery to carry them out. Dr Beckel said the reason the government was es- tablishing new policy was to establish better co-ordination of advanced education programs and the institutes that offer the programs for the benefit of all citizens "I think they are making a serious effort to accomplish the goal that has been set out. but we don't have any evidence that their machinery of co-ordination is he said. One senator suggested the senate should ask the depart- ment of advanced education for a progress report on new programs submitted to the department for approval as a method of discovering how effectively the department has been functioning during the last few months. The senators main concern was the Native American studies program that was presented to the government lor approval last spring. Approval of the program has been withheld by the govern- ment until it establishes its new-program policy. AIR CONDITION NOW with the ROUND ONE ALCON REFRIGERATION LTD. FURNACES.

S. ft. 327-M18 Taxi phone-number issue resolved Herald Legislature Bureau EDMONTON A complaint that Alberta Government Telephones improperly awarded a Lethbridge Taxi company's phone number to a competitor has been resolved "most satisfactorily" by ACT, says the provincial ombudsman In a letter to Roy Farran, telephones and utilities minister. Ombudsman George McClellan said he wanted to thank Mr. Farran personally for the "very full and fair hearing" of the complaint. AGT gave the estate of the late owner of Yellow Cabs in Lethbridge, Patrick Mysyk, based on a calculation by the public trustee as to how much the number switch cost the estate. Mr. Farran said it was clear that AGT had nc legal obligation in the matter but a moral one. He said the number was reassigned too hastily and that AGT would attempt to avoid similar instances in future. A letter from Mr. Mysyk's sister in March claimed the number change ruined what chance the estate had of selling the company since the number was such a vital part of the business. After Mr. Mysyk died in July, 1972, AGT gave the Yellow Cab number to Bridge Cabs. "For the price of a phone bill, they ac- quired my late brother's most important asset." the letter claimed. The public trustee has also written Mr. Farran complimenting AGT on its "fair and courteous" attitude in rectifying the com- plaint.

Immigrant amnesty deadline tonight A few weeks ago, Harry Poulos was working illegally on a construction project in Medicine Hat, having come from his native Greece because he heard "the living here was better He liked what he found here Snowmobile use limited for big game hunters Hunters using snowmobiles this winter to hunt big game must park their vehicles or use their vehicles for spotting only between the hours of midnight and noon, Frank Somerville, fish and wildlife regional officer says. A hunter is permitted to use an all-terrain vehicle between these hours but is not per- mitted to carry a firearm, ac- cording to a regulation approved in legislation passed two years ago by the provin- cial government. The regula- tion applies to almost the en- tire province ihis> year for the first time, says Mr. Somer- ville. The regulation was prompted by hunters' protests that use of all-terrain vehicles by some hunters was hinder- ing them in stalking their prey. But during the morning hunters can use all-terrain vehicles for pulling their big game from the hunt Hunters can use these vehicles in the afternoon providing they discharge their firearms 50 feet from the vehicle. It is illegal at all times to pursue an animal with an all-terrain vehicle The fish and wildlife office advises hunters that it is il- legal to discharge a firearm at wildlife on or from a road allowance and to discharge a firearm within 50 yards of a vehicle on any main or secon- dary highway.

Now that's all changed And Mr Poulos is happier than ever. Mr. Poulos is one of thou- sands of people who have received legal immigrant status under the Canada Im- migration amnesty program. "I'd like to say thanks to the government for giving me and the other guys like me a chance to he said in a telephone interview from Medicine Hat. However, indications are that illegal immigrants are holding back and not taking advantage of the program. Only 10 per cent of the applicants have been illegal immigrants or holders of work permits. The other 90 per cent have been on student visas, officials across the country say In Lethbridge, Mike Diduck, officer :n charge of the local immigration office, stresses thit having worked illegally in Canada will not be held applicants under the program. Bin anyone who does not appk by the deadline mid- night tonight will be deported when caught, with no appeal against the deportation order George Blair lived in Canada legally for three years on a student visa before apply- ing for immigrant status. Mr. Blair who expects to be or- dain. in two years, said he f me to Canada when he i. P'. the Basilian order has its theological srhu'latSt Michael's College in Toronto. He had not intended to become a Canadian citizen when he joined the Basilian Fathers, but added. "The longer I was in Canada the better I liked it." He found that Canadians had a different attitude to life than Americans, with stronger European and English roots "which helps towards a more stable situa- tion in government and society." Another student. Patricia Kraskey, said she had "always wanted to come to Canada." Miss Kraskey, a native of Long Island, N.Y., is currently studying archaeology and anthropology in the colloquium program at the University of Lethbridge. She had been in the country legally on a student visa, and had intended to apply for im- migrant status in any case, "because I needed the right to work." If her application had been refused, Miss Kraskey says, she would have appealed Her acceptance as an im- migrant gave her "the best feeling I've had in years." Ruth Simpson, 75, and her sister, Edith Brady, 73, both became immigrants to Canada for the second time under the program. Mrs. Simpson and Mrs. Brady came to Southern Alberta in 1916 with thier parents to farm. When they grew up and married Cana- dian men, they acquired Cana- dian citizenship under an old laW which gd've wives uic same nationality as their husbands. Both moved back to the United States in the 1940s, returning in 1972 when another sister fell ill, but they had lost their citizenship by staying away more than 10 years After spending their youth here, they say they prefer Southern Alberta's climate and the Canadian way of life.
