Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 24, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, October 24, 1973 Autonomy of universities Educator first to buck new military rulers By JEREMIAH O'LEARY Washington Star SANTIAGp A strong- willed civilian educator, Dr. Edgardo Boeninger, director of the University of Chile, has become the first important Chilean figure to buck the new military rulers and he has won a moral victory of deep significance. Boeninger, 48, a Chris- tian Democrat, stood up to the junta on a matter of principle the traditional autonomy of Chilean un- iversities and the speed with which the junta waved the olive branch gives him new and greater national importance. The junta may not even have been aware that it was treading on the toes of the powerful academicians. But Boeninger set them straight by announcing his resignation. Because he said he could no longer serve as rector if the autonomy of the univer- sities was violated. The issue developed at Valparaiso where there are three universities: the University of Chile branch: the Catholic University and the technical university of Santa Maria. What happen- ed was that the military provincial governor ap- pointed three naval of- New system of handling cases COURTS TO BE STREAMLINED VANCOUVER (CP) Provincial courts here are to get a new. streamlined system of handling cases to correct an "intolerable" situation, says a senior judge "We intend to institute a system new to provincial courts in Canada when our new courtrooms open at the end of Acting District Judge Les Bewley said in an inter- view He said the new system at the 16- courtroom provincial courthouse will be based on assigning each accused person to a single courtroom, where the case can be handled until its dis- position. The aim is to minimize delays caused by the anti- quated court system, now costing city taxpayers a year "They the courts will know what they can handle they do not know Judge Bewley said. "Can you imagine a den- tist with a full day of patients requesting each one to come in at 9 30 a.m.. taking them in rotation and. when he has two left at 5 p.m.. telling them to come back tomorrow or in a "That is exactly what we've been doing in the provincial courts The judges decided that when the new building opens the time will be ripe to do something about what they have long considered an alarming waste of time and money. "There are many preventable delays dealing with trials and it's the responsibility of judges to take the initiative and do something about it." said Judge Bewley.

"The figure does not in- clude civilian witnesses' lost pay, salaries and overhead."

The governor had responded to some faculty members in Valparaiso who had long been beleaguered with Marxists and who wanted a military presence. Domingo Santa Maria, a former Chilean ambassador to Washington, is rector from the Chilean hiearachy. Boeninger is rector of all University of Chile branches. Meeting the other un- iversity leaders here, Boeninger told them he would not tolerate intervention and that he would resign. There is reason to believe that the new minister of education was either not consulted by the Valparaiso authorities or did not realize the magnitude of the move in the eyes of the independent-minded San- tiago educators. No one evidently anticipated that Boeninger would make a public issue with his vigorous reaction and the junta did not want a confrontation with him. The junta, which has brooked opposition from no one since the Sept. 11 coup, hastily called in Boeninger to make peace. It was ex- plained to him with deference that the Valparaiso appointments were "at the request" of the local university authorities in Valparaiso and that the "delegados" were only there to assist the rectors, not to supplant them. In fact, one of three naval officers quit before Boeninger did and for much the same reason his belief in the autonomy of the university system. Boeninger could not be reached for comment but it is reliably reported he was mollified by the junta ex- planation and probably will not resign now that he has made his point BAND OVERWORKED While Edward VII struggled to get into a tight uniform aboard his train at Brandenburg in 1909, a German military band played God Save The King 16 times in a row before he emerged on the station platform.
