UofL art department seeks surcease of isolation By HERB JOHNSON Staff Writer A living example of the bearded artist struggling in iso- lation in his lonely garret to realize his own artistic dreams, while the rest of the world con- cerns itself with more mun- dane affairs exists ir. Leth- bridge today. The "garret" is perhaps the world's largest. It used to be a roller skating barn; it is now (and has been for some time) home for the University of Lethbridge art department. While most of the university has moved to the new west side campus, the art department finds itself among the group still holding the fort on the cast side. The split campus has added to the feeling of isolation from which the department suffered even before almost everyone else moved out this fall. Be- fore the move, the art depart- ment, quartered in its own building several hundred yards from the rest of the campus, was somewhat removed from the mainstream of campus life.

Featured speaker will be Dr. Philip Deane, dean of the arts and science faculty at the Uni- versity of Lethbridge. The meeting is open to the public and rickets mcy be ob- tained at the door. took over as department chair- man for a three year term this summer, says the depart- ment feels "very much Iso- lated." He's keenly aware of the need for communication not only between the department and the rest of the university, but with the community at large as well. And while the separate build- ing does provide space and a good environment for the stu- dents, it means few students other than art majors ever find out what the department is do- ing. The public, too, seems large- ly unconcerned with the depart- ment's activities, including its exhibits in the gallary. Prof. Crane said he could pretty well predict who would show up at opening nights for the exhibits most are "regu- lars" who turn out faithfully for each new show. He admits that one problem, which the department hopes to overcome next year when it moves to the west side, is the lack of evening and weekend showings for the exhibits. Local residents do turn out in droves for the once-a-year open house, which the departm e n t holds on a weekend. Prof. Crane is looking for vis- itors any time and invites peo- ple who want to look around and watch students in action to drop out during the evening. The building is open at night, usually until around 10 or 11 p.m. Because of security needs, the gallery containing the tra- velling exhibits is locked but the students and their work are there. The gallery is, of course, open during the day when staff members are on duty. Next year's move to the west side, while it won't bring any great advantages in terms of space or new equipment, will be the start of what Prof. Crane visualizes as a cultural centre on the new campus. He said plans call for all areas of the fine arts to be in close proximity, enabling a theatre goer, for example, to walk out of a play at intermis- sion and view an art exhibit. He feels exciting things will happen in Lethbridge and the university has a contribution to make. He also has a high regard for the students from southern Al- berta, despite the lack of art background from their public school experiences. He's en- couraged by several newly in- stituted art programs in Leth- bridge and district schools. The "old man" of the art de- partment (he started teaching in the new chairman was raised in Michigan and has de- grees from Michigan State Uni- versity. He came to the U of L in 1969 as the department's first art historian. In addition to looking forward to the move to the west side, he has great hopes for the depart- ment's new bachelor of fine arts program, which is sched- uled to be offered next fall. Some students will be adjust- ing their courses to enter the BFA program next semester, he said. The new program, which wiH give students the background to go on to a master's degree, will give the students more freedom to specialize in their own field of interest. ORRPC appoints new planners By RICHABD EUHKE Staff Writer Two new associate planners have been appointed to the staff of the Oldman River Re- gional Planning Commission staff. The appointments and the resignation of associate plan ner Peter Tassie, were approv- ed by ORRPC Wednesday. Effective Oct. 1, Code Cle- ments and Ted Nicholson will assume the positions of town or municipal planners for mun- icipalities within the ORRPC. Mr. Clements is in the pro- cess of completing his thesis for a master of arts degree in planning at the University of Washington in Seattle. He is a Canadian from Winnipeg.

Phone 327-3555 Mr. Nicholson is also com- pleting his masters degree in planning, at the University of British Columbia. He has had several years of planning ex- perience to supplement his edu- cation. The two were chosen by Er- win Adderley, executive direc- tor of ORRPC, from about 50 applicants for the positions. Air. Adderley said about 80 per cent of the applications came from the United States. With the appointments and Mr. Tassie's resignation, one vacancy remains in the ORRPC staff. Mr. Tassie has been on staff as an associate planner for about a year. He will leave Oct. 1 to accept a similar position with the department of Indian affairs. On a related matter, ORRPC directed the executive commit- tee to initiate a comparison study of salaries paid to staff members of planning commis- sions across Canada. The action was taken after Mr. Adderley indicated Ihe staff turnover rate for ORRPC may be a result of non-competitive salaries. He said ORRPC pays its staff based on Ihe civil service wage scale, which puts the commis- sion at a disadvantage when competing with other planning commissions for qualfied plan- ners. In one case, he said, an asso- ciate planner left ORRPC nnd took a similar position in Sas- katchewan with a in- crease in salary. He said if a salary review is not done and adjustments made, the commission will con- tinue to experience a high staff turnover rate. The commission also ap- proved a subdivision on 20th Ave. S. between 32nd St. am 35th St. S. The Municipal Planning Com mission last week gave Frand sen Developments permission to, build 33 town house units on the property, subject to ORRPC approval of the subdivision.

"The faculty council of the university has expressed par- tial approval, but has yet to approve the entire said Dr. Bill Beckel, president- elect of the U of L. "If the proposal is passed, the faculty of arts and sciences would be relied upon greatly in starting the new he said. Dr. Beckel said, "The great- est issue to he considered is whether such a faculty would be keeping within the phil- osophy of the university. A uni- versity is dedicated to the de- velopment of a liberal person. It must be determined if a management arts school and a school of liberal education can be developed side by side. "I believe the two schools can function side by he said, "if the right program is agreed to. Such a program is not beyond the wit of this univer- sity." It is hoped the school, when developed, will be able to cor- rect problems caused by mis- management in business, indus- try and government. The philosophy of the new school will be: existing prob- lems in management can not be corrected by teaching in the manner of an ordinary business school, The current methods and practices of both management and the teaching of manage- ment for the contemporary world are based on the princi- ples of the past, not the pres- ent. The school of management arts would teach students to un- derstand current management fuittis at play. It would prepare them to see not only where they were, but where they were going, hopefully averting the mistake of lacking foresight. The purpose of the proposed school would be not to create just "accountants and book- but to create skilled persons trained in thinking in terms of the total environment, not merely a narrow profes- sional segment. A school of management arts would be unique to Canada and would provide business indus- try and government, with grad- uates able to function in a rapidly changing world envir- onment. Subjects required for a four- year bachelor of arts degree from the proposed school would include courses in computer science and dala processing, economics and microeconom- ics, money and banking, mon- etary policy, finance, labor re- lations, mathematics, law, psy- chology, Iwhavioral engineer- ing, sociology, philosophy, an- thropology, geography, history, biology, chemistry, physics and English. Many inter related subjects would be team-taught concur- rently, with each leam-mem- b e r-inslniclor discussing his own perspective on a single over all theme. Each team in- structor would he present for every class meeting. It is hoped an integral part of the training would include "on the job experience" within the administration of the uni- versity and during internships at co-operating local businesses and labor unions. LMH expects further deficit The Lethbridge Municipal Hospital, already operating at a loss of this year, may face additional deficits unless hospital revenues increase. At a Municipal Hospital Board meeting Wednesday, di- rector Terry Bland questioned whether the hospital could suc- cessfully operate within its al- lotted budget for the remainder of the year without facing fur- ther losses. Hospital administrator Andy Andreachuk said for this period (first eight the budget has been underspent by He blamed the deficit to date on an anticipated loss of hospi- tal revenue during the summer months. Mr. Andreachuk said the loss Enrolment projections methods must be changed By RON CALDWELL Staff Writer Changes must be made in the method of projecting enrol- ment figures in Alberta Univer- sil Dr. Bill Beckel, vice- president of the University of Lethbridge said Wednesday. "We're disappointed in the present system because it makes budgeting he said. Dr. Beckel said officials from Alberta's four universities will be meeting in Edmonton Sept. 28 for budget discussions and "enrolment figures and projec- tions will definitely be discuss- ed." He said he plans to meet with officials and instructors at the University of Lethbridge before the Edmonton session in an ef- fort to determine why enrol- ment figures are down. "We've got to determine why students aren't coming to uni- versity, before an accurate sys- tem of projections can be de- he said. "We expected students this year, we have only Where are they? I certainly would like to know why they didn't come." Dr. Beckel agreed that the general economic and unem- ployment situation in Canada may have some bearing on uni- versity enrolment. "Maybe they're thinking Sappers meet Lethbridge Sappers Associa- tion will hold a smoker Friday in the Miners' Club starting at 8 p.m., it is announced by President A. W. (Joe) Schandor.

"why put myself in debt when there's no pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.' This may be the reason, I don't he said. The province's largest uni- versity before an accurate sys- problem. Dr. Max Wyman, University of Alberta president, said his university appears headed for a "zero" growth rale this year after a decade of steady in- creases. Registration figures indicate a 1971-72 enrolment of about the same figure as last year and below the the university had expected. is expected to be offset by in- creasing revenues during the remaining portion of the year. In a report to the directors Mr. Andreachuk said the occu- pancy rate at the hospital for the first eight months of this year has climbed .7 per cent to 85.7 per cent, in contrast with the 1970 occupancy rate 85 per cent. For a period ending in August, patients had been ad- mitted to hospital compared with tiie previous year. The director of counselling at the Lethbridge Municipal Hos- pital, Miss K. E. Hurlburt was granted a one-year leave of ab- sence to continue her education towards a masters degree. Miss Hurlburt is entering the graduate program in rehabilita- tion counselling at the Univer- sity of Oregon. Three city clergymen will stand in during her absence to carry out her duties, which in- clude counselling patients, hos- pital staff and nursing students.
