By RON CALDWELL Herald Staff Writer The University of Lethbridge has passed a milestone in its five year history. Saturday, Sept. 23, 1972 the new U of L campus was offi- cially opened one year and 14 days after the first class was held in the 516.5 million modernistic complex on tlie west bank of tlie Oldman River. The three day opening cere- monies were filled with the educational pagentry that typi- fies such events speeches, processions and presentations. Several hundred southern AI- bertans took part in at least one of the events; many came back for more. In addition, there were a number of digni- taries who journeyed far to witness the University of Lcth- bridge's transition into official adulthood in the field of past- secondary education. Arthur Erickson, the man who designed the campus, came from Vancouver. Dr. Claude Bissell, who was one oi four men awarded an honorary degree, made the trip from To- ronto. One of the most popular visit- ing dignitaries was Dr. Sam Smith, the man who was the first president cf the U of L. Dr. Smith drove from San Diego, Calif, to attend the cer- emonies. "This is literally like coming he said in an interview with The Herald. "I am deeply impressed with the special feel- Ing that exists in the whole city of Lethbridge about the opening." When he left the U of L last December to take up a post with the United States Interna- tional University in Hawaii, Dr. Smith expressed confidence about the future of the U of L. Upon Ids return nine months later, he says Ills enthusiasm has grown. "I am as optimistic today as I ever was. This university has the numiier one president in Canada, as far as I'm concern- he said. "My only reservation would would be that it shouldn't the special excitement that has followed this university since it started." Dr. Smith said at this stags in the university's history, "it now has the opportunity to sharpen it's role to build to add quality, but it can't risk pulling in its horns too far. "Southern Alberta needs an institution of this kind and it is just now beginning to deliver." Dr. Smith is now stationed on the main campus of TJSIU in San Diego, having moved there from Hawaii In mid- August. "I am now the director of the open-degree program and sum- mer sessions for the entire uni- versity network of campuses around the he said. "When I went to Hawaii last December, it was on the under- standing that I might be trans- ferred to an administrative post on the main campus in a short time. But I would like to have stayed in Hawaii a while longer. I liked the weather." University focus must be national Universities must strive to change their focus from inter- national to national, says Dr. Claude Bissell, a professor at tha University of Toronto. Dr. Bissell told a public lec- ture audience that was part of the official opening ceremonies of the University of Lethbridge that, in recent years, the gap between international and na- tional standards has steadily Songivriting finalist from city Stop signs for county intersection Stop signs will be erected by the County of Lethbridge at a district intersection following a two vehicle accident Aug. 23. Acting on a recommendation from RCMP Constable W. G. Singer of the Lethbridge high- way patrol, the county decided to put up the signs on both east and west sides of the intersec- tion located one mile east and one mile north of the Broxburn elevators, east of Lethbridge. In a letter to the county, Con- stable Singer said there Is limited visibility at the inter- section and only a yield Eign posted on the east ride. A former resident and stu- dent In Lethbridge has become one of the finalists In the Hear Canada Staging songwriling competition. Murray Tonkin, son of Bill and Joan Tonkin of the city, at- tended the Lethbridge Collegi- ate Institute and the Leth- bridge Community College be- fore leaving for a Los Angeles college in 1965. He is now a res- ident of Thunder Bay, Ont. Mr. Tonkin, with hU entry Song for Joanne, was one of 858 competitors, 200 of whom reached the finals.

Of the practisinf jrown smaller and universities re turning their attention more national problems. "Now they should compen- ate for their neglect of the na- onal said the former of T president. "They can do lis, not by giving preference Canadian scholars, but by making sure that good scholars prepared in our graduate and given every oppor- unity to join the faculties of anadian universities, not by xtting up special institutes, but y .giving strong Canadian curses in existing disciplines." Dr. Bissell said universities tiould also break out of their hell of non-involvement In so- ial issues. He said as long as minority opinions are given free expression, "there will be times nurse population males. 912 wen STILL SELLING FOR LESS! STERN'S CUT-RATE FURNITURE 314 3rd Street S.

AMA opens in new building The Alberta Motor Associa- tion moved into its new offices in the AMA Building, next to The Lethbridge Herald on 5th Ave. S., Friday afternoon. The move was originally scheduled over the weekend but Hans Tiedemann, AMA assist- ant manager, said the new of- fices were ready by 1 p.m. Fri- day. The old AMA building closed as of 1 p.m. Friday. The official opening of the new AMA Building is still scheduled for Oct. 20, with Highways Minister Clarence Copithorne attending. Commenting on sbjdent attt- udes toward universities, Dr. Bissell said there has been a complete reversal of form in recent years. First, in the days of affluence and employment, students ac- cused tlie universities of acting as a conveyor belt for industry, but now that jobs are harder to come by, the university has be- come inefficient as an employ- ment agency.
