Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 28, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE LETHBRIDGE HERA1D Monday, September 28, 1970- University Head Says Critical' irnment University of Lethbridge Act- in.? President Dr. Bill Beckel h.i1: ho is not bc- ini; critical of the provinc i a 1 government in pointing out the H't'ious fin.'mcial problem.-; the U of L faces. University officials are try- ing only to point out the par- ticular difficulties the economic Uualio'i in Alberta and throughout Canada has caus- ed for the U of L, and why the U of L is not as able to face these problems as other Alber- ta universities. The government has cut back its education spending at all levels, and proposed a new sys- tem of priori! ies which empha- sizes pre school, elementary and community college educa- tion. It faces development of a bil- Hnn dollar education bill with- in a very few years unless some controls are placed now on edu- cation spending. In the university sphere this year fSl million is being spent cm operating costs alone, and the figure will increase sub- stantially every year. The government is currently financing a five-year capital construction program for uni- versities which by 1972 will have spent more than the bud- geted S185 million. This in- cludes about million for the new U of L campus now under construction. Already there is a call for a similar five year plan from 1972 to 1977 and current re- quests from universities for new facilities needed to keep pace with burgeoning enrol- ments exceeds million. But the University of Alberta and University of Calgary are buffered from" the austerity pro- gram by their size and the large number of programs they already offer their students. Capital Reserves The U of A Is further buffer- ed by substantial accumulated capital reserves it can draw from. Universities can no long- er acquire any reserves under new legislation but the U of Aexisted and accu ulated them for many years before regulations were changed. The U of A, with stu dents, needs one president, two vice presidents, one registrar and so on. .The U of L. with only students, needs the same administrators at the same cost, but has a much smaller budget to draw their salaries from. The U of A receives consid- erably higher grants per-stu- dent for many of its programs than does the U of L resulting in still more flexibility for the larger campus. With a complex grants sys- tem borrowed from Ontario, the Alb e r t a universities commis- sion distributes grants accord- ing to weighted "enrol m e n t units" first year arts and science general program stu- dents count as one unit, and other programs and course years increase the unit-weight imtil some PliD-level students count as nine units each. The U of L receives enrol- ment unit grants of only one and two unite. And a research paper writ- ten for and later suppress- ed by the U of A reportedly found the system inequitabl because it does not really rt fleet comparative costs of vari ous programs. Ontario Agrees Ontario seems to agree: i has constantly modified thi system since Alberta adoptei it tut Alberta has not chang ed it at all. Oiher difficulties in Alberta's univers i t y financial picture stem from the failure of the Three Alberta Universities cap- ital fund drive to reach its million objective (which the provincial government is matching dollar-for-dollar col- The campaign raised only about million, which pre- mier Harry Strom has taken to indicate a lack of public sup- port for mere extensive uni- versity grants. However, 3AU was actually over subscribed by Lethbridge and southern Alberta and by business and industry donors. The deficit is due to a lack of donations from Calgary and Ed- monton. Campaign officials say the real reason for SAU's seeming Failure is that Albertans have never before been asked to do- nate to universities from their own pockets. It does not, they insist, reflect any lack of pub- lic support of university spend- ing. They point out that fund-rais- ing has become a standard part of every other university in North America and that do- nation income forms a signifi- cant part of these universities' incomes.

Fire Prevention Theme Of Week Lowly Six-Cent Stamp Does A Big Job By MARGARET LUCKHURS Staff Writer In spite of strikes, walkout- rising costs and other frustra ing mail problems, sending letter is still about the best deal you can get anywhere for a pa try six cents. For that minimal amount yd can send a birthday card t your neighbor across the stree or a letter to Grandma down i Australia. However, if you wan to exchange correspndenc with a pen pal in Timbuktu or some other unusual place, you'i better check with the post offic for correct postage, as there is a limit to where the six-cen stamp will take your message But how safe and secure your letter once you've sent i on its way, address ed? According to our postal laws ROYAL CANADIAN SEA CADET CORPS CHINOOK Has An Opening For 25 BOYS Who Know Where They Are Going If interested in Sea Cadets why not show up at the Ship 10th Avenue and 17th Street S., any Monday Evening By P.M. first class mail may not b opened under any circum stances. If, for example, yo enclosed a stick of gum in your letter and postal officials won dered if it might be a narcotii they have to be very carefu on how they go about estab lishing illegal use of the mai If a zealous letter carrier wa suspicious of the contents o the letter he would likely repor the matter to a superior who ir turn could report the inciden to the RCMP who take it from there. If the carrier, in an attemp :o see justice served, openec the letter himself to find onlj a stick of gum, he'could be ii serious trouble indeed. Even if he did find a narcotic le is still in serious trouble for opening the letter in the firs place. .egal Search When postal and RCMP off! cials are convinced that a per on is using the mail illegally and there is enough evidence o prosecute, a warrant to e a r c h the suspicious letter lay be obtained. It has long been a household oke that letter carriers read 11 the post cards and maga- ines on their route. "Letter arriers have to get through their walks in a given postal official stated. "I don't hink they could cope with wad- Jig through dozens of cards ev- ry day, but the public is con- inced that relatives' travel messages are read by the en- ire post office. It's simply an ocupational exaggeration we ave to become resigned to." What if a particularly pri- ate letter is misdirected to an- her household, opened by er- r, then redirected to you. lere's no point in suing "the person who opened it because you can't prove he did it, know- ing it was not his. You can shriek at the letter carrier because it's his fault. He'll apologize, which doesn't make you feel any better per- haps, but it wili remind you that human error does occur in this type of system. Ownership If you've written love letters you'd like to get back, it will perhaps make you wonder who owns letters, recipient. the sender or the The material contained in the letter is the sender's as it is his work of 'art' or whatever, and if it happens to be a lyric love poem of distinction he still owns the copyright to it if the recipient has any notion of sell- ing it. The recipient, however, has ;he right to show the letter to other people which is why it is advisable to exhibit a little re- straint in composing love let- :ers as the recipient may en- thusiastically want to share ;hem with the whole world. There is no way of demand- ng" and getting the love letters back. The paper they are writ- ten on belong to the recipient who can tuck them away with other momentoes. Have you ever dropped a let- ter in a mailbox then immedi- ately wished you had it back. Tough apples. Once the letter slides down that little chute it is the property of the recipi- ent, and there is no use hang- ing around to beg the pickup man to fish it out for you: That's not his authority and it's quite illegal. There is no law against en- closing money in a letter if you are unable to purchase a money order for some reason. However, it is not a good idea, and if it is lost you have no redress as in the case of money order. Officials say that chances of the money reaching the recipient are excellent, but then again, if a fire or theft occurs en route there goes Aunt Mary's birthday present.
