Work Situation Favorable The Canada Manpower cen tre in Lethbridge' estimates the employment situation in the city will be favorable through the upcoming fall and winter There are increasing de- mands for skilled construction workers as work on the Uni- versity of Lethbridge, Swift's Canadian Ltd. and apartment blocks progresses. The demand is also steady for painters, carpenters, elec- tricians, steam engineers anc heavy equipment operators. There is at present a surplus of unskilled construction work- :s. Frank Besplug, Lethbridge manpower manager, said the unemployment, rate .in Leth- bridge is up over last year, about 3 per cent, but attri- butes the increase to Leth- Dridge's high transient work Mpulation. Lethbridge is somewhat of a bright spot for jobs on the said Mr. Besplug. "The unemployment rate rises Because people ome expecting to find jobs and with no prior arrangements." Work demands are also strong for sales personnel with :he completion of the new Simpson Sears shopping mall, and placements are antici- pated when work starts in the sugar beet harvest later in the fall.

In a closed senate meeting Saturday, Dr. Beckel is report- ed to have estimated a deficit in this year's mil- lion operating budget which mil have to be made up with interest from its 1S71-1972 grants. This will place a severe strain on the already black monetary position of the uni- versity, and could result in ex- tensive cutbacks in alniost ev- ery phase of its activities. In addition to further crowd- ing of already heavily enrolled classes, it could result in a much heavier work load for fa- culty and administration who already must work 55 to 60 hours a week to keep up. Because tenured faculty can- not be dismissed, various aca- demic assistants and some of .the stenographic staff may have to be laid off. This, how- ever, will force faculty and ad- ministration to add many hours to their work weeks, because the work will still have to be done. Dr. Beckel said the univer- sity does not now spend enough money on teaching materials and supplies but may have to cut back even further, han- dicapping both faculty and stu- dents. He said the U of L does not have enough money now for its continuing education program, which provides off campus courses in southern Alberta communities. The program may have to be severely cur- tailed. Twice as much money should be spent on educational media equipment (now at twice as much on computer services (now three times as much on research and faculty travel (now totalling Five times as much should be spent on bringinc specially- invited guest lecturers to the campus (now budgeted at plant maintenance, now about should be in- creased to about Student services, now 000 should be substantially in- creased, Dr. Beckel said; al- though the university is hitting about the national average in this category; Administration, however, at should be cut some- what but due to the basic inefficiencies of the small U of L size, this cannot be done without a loss of the quality of administration and a resulting cut in education quality. A cut in administrative spend- ing would result in the U of L becoming a carbon copy of the University of Alberta, Dr. Beck- el said, because it could not de- velop its own policies. The acting president's major concern, however, is that the university's troubled financ e s will stop it from implementing any improvements in its offer- ing to its students: The university is dedicated to development of the fine arts in southern Alberta, but has been unable to make its planned ap- pointments in dram a t i c arts and in photography in art. It has not been able to em- ploy a professor of physical education, or of international education, or music education in the faculty of education, or to give support in the reading, research or curriculum cen- tres of the faculty of educa- tion all well-used by south- ern Alberta school systems. There can be no new appoint- ments in botany, a popular and thus badly overcrowded pro- gram of study. There can be no appointments in the classics, or hi modern languages, both of which are needed to make U of L offer- ings have the required breadth students need. There is demand for an ap- pointment in the music depart- ment for instruction in strings. Anthropology majors suffer from lack of any program in archeology, but faculty cannot be afforded. The univsrsity needs a pro- gram in remedial English for local students inadequately pre- pared, and for foreign students with language difficulties, Dr. Beckel said but even though it is badly needed, there is no money for it. Because of the hamstrung Gas Hearings Delegation In Calgary ALethbridge delegation headed by John Hammond, city solicitor, is in Calgary to- day for the opening of hearings by the Public Utilities Board into a proposed gas rate in- crease by Canadian Western Natural Gas Co. Ltd. The city is opposing the in- crease on the grounds it is in- flationary and not warranted at this time. Calgary and member com- munities of the Oldman River Regional Planning Commission are also against the increase, which would vary from 5K to 13 per c.ent, according to the community. Proposed in August, the in- crease, if granted, would take effect in February. Cars Collide Damage amounted to when two cars collided on the corner of 13th St. and 4th Ave. Monday. Drivers of the two vehicles were Elizabeth R. Markl of 1126 20th St. S. and Maurice M. Young of 1232 St. Catherine Road. There were no injuries. budget, the positions nf eo-or- dinator of student affairs and co-ordinalor of community rela- tions may have to be dropped, a blow to students and to the university's public relations program. The university desperately needs a fund raising officer to try to draw money from the public as private donations (which every campus in North America outside of Alberta has had for years) but cannot af- ford to hire one so car.'t benefit from funds he might be able to raise. The much larger University of Calgary does not have near- ly as severe a problem, al- though it too is suffering. And the University of Alberta, which is saddled with a million drop in grants, has been in busi- ness for sufficient years to be fairly well established. It also has extensive accumulated re- serves to draw on, which the U of L and U of C do not. Dr. Beckel reportedly told the senate he saw few solutions, un- less the universities commis- sion develops a more flexible system of financing based on a three or four year program which could take deficit set- backs in its stride and allow a university to progress with some order. The result would be n com- prehensive academic still, he said, sacrifices might be necessary: classes might have to he crowded more, sup- port staff might have to be de- creased, or the library might have to operate with a more restricted budget. But a realistic system of uni- versity financing would still be the most important basis for an improvement in the U of L's bleak outlook.
