Chick's progress Students accept fhtw and TORONTO (CP) A survey of students at a high school in Pembroke, Ont., shows "consid- erable respect" by youth for po- lice and a strong inclination to accept "law and the Ca- nadian Council of Christians and Jews reports. The council said two of its re- searchers conducted the stlrvey recently at Fellowes high school How's he doing? Kindergarten children at MacCorkindaie elementary school in Vancouver are making a five-week study of the chicken's New invention is found for picking up oil spills New method found to stop 'tooth grinding WASHINGTON (AP) United States Army dentists reported Thursday they may have found a new way to eliminate the frustrating habit of tooth grinding, by having tooth-grinders practise grind- ing their teeth until they're uncomfortable. It could spare dental and even psychiatric treatment now required, they said. The technique calls fer off- and-on intentional grinding for about six minutes a day for two weeks, said Lt.-Col. Marvin P. Levin of the Army Institute of Dental Research. It apparently eliminated the habit in 11 of 14 inveterate fe- male tooth grinders tested in an army experiment, he told a meeting of the International Association for Dental Re- search. He added that the three patients who were unsuccess- ful in eliminating the habit were all taen-agers who, it was felt, had not consistently engaged in the exercises. Dentists say tooth grinding can wear down teeth ind also cause painful dis- alignment of jaw bones. By JOSEPH MacSWSEN' MONTREAL (CP) Canada may be missing the boat on a nev.ij--invented system for pick- ing up oil spills from water, says the executive director of the Science Council of Canada. Dr. P. D. McTaggart-Cowan, who directed the big oil cleanup at Chedabucto Bay, N.S., in 1970, says the federal depart- ment of the environment made an ''error in judgment" by chopping development funds for the invention. The system, invented by R. L. Avey of Montreal, utili- zes huge plastic bags to capture oil on the surface of the water in somewhat the same manner as the nets of a moving trawler snare fish below the surface. The bags take in a "sand- wich" of water, oil and air. On reelase from tow, the bags in- cline to a vertical position, with the weighted mouths sinking and the lighter-than-v.ater oil rising to the upper closed end cf the sleeves for later removal. Mr. Avey said in an interview he was stunned by the federal cutoff because engineering tests of a rough pre-prototype model manufactured by Canadair Ltd. of Montreal were conducted last October at the Canada Centre for Inland Waters at Burlington, Ont. "These tests confirmed that the bags could be deployed in moderately rough water and that they were effective in col- lecting he said, quoting the engineering report which also described the project as fea- sible. WROTE DAVIS Mr. Avey wrote to Environ- ment Minister Jack Davis call- ing attention to certain sections of the outlining planned improvements to the by j Jhs minister March 24. Mr. Davis spoke in a tele- vision interview after Dr. j rice Ruei, chief of research and I development in the environ- mental emergency branch in Ottawa, terminated the devel- opment following committee study of the Burlington report. Dr. Ruel cited capital and op- erational costs, the amount of which was all that was tested at oil that could be collected at a given lime by the system, "haz- ards to shipping" and "general comolexity" as drawbacks. don't think his arguments are valid, and I have so told Dr. McTaggart-Cowan said. they had beeen made on the basis of tests by a pro- totype, then one would be ar- guing on a matter of fact. But to take a 'bread board' model, which was all that was tested at Burlington, and have it done by people who were inexperienced at handling this type of equip- ment, you're bound to run into problems." SHOLXD DEVELOP The scientist recalled that first attempts to use the now- famed "slick licker" device after the tanker Arrow spewed oil into Chedabucto Bay were very inexpert. But the Avey system "is unique in its application and in my judgment should be pushed to the prototype stage as fast as possible, so we could test it to make sure whether it is a win- ner or not. "I think a negative decision j such as has been made may i be depriving Canadians of j a useful cleanup device." Dr. McTaggart-Cowan stressed in a telephone inter- view from Ottawa that he re- gards Dr. Ruel as a brilliant scientist, whose anti-pollution achievements included the dis- covery of a method of using peat moss against oil. "But don't think anyone can make the key judgment without a to the device that would even- tually, if successful, go into pro- duction." Canada has a record of tim- idity in developing its own ideas and badly needs a variety of anti-pollution systems because no single device is suitable in all situations of oil spill, he said. Federal grants for Montana WASHINGTON (AP) Fed- eral grants to Montana totall- ing were announced by members of the state's Con- gressional delegation. Sen. Mike Mansfield said the office of Economic Opportun- ity approved a award to the Blackfeet tribal council for continuation of tribal pro- grams past Sept. 1, 1973. Oth- er awards were to the Crow Agency and to the Rocky Boy Reservation. in connection with a seminar on police and community relations in the Ottawa River town. A questionnaire on attitudes toward police and law enforce- ment was completed by 154 stu- dents in all grades at the school, or about 10.3 per cent of the pupils. The council said in its report that 76.G per cent of the stu- dents were familiar with "all services" offered by police in the area. It also showed that 76.9 per cent of the students feel police are not prejudiced against them. KNOW BY NAME The survey showed "a sig- nificantly high contact between youth and per cent of the students knew five or more policemen by name. Only 28.2 per cent knew none. Although 53.9 per cent of the studerts said they sometimes used the word "pig" to describe police, only 1.8 per cent said they used it almo t always, pre- sumably to indicate contempt for law enforcement. Only 13.2 per cent of the stu- dents felt they had been mis- treated by police. Almost one-third of the stu- dents, the council reported, said they are considering a career in police work. The percentage of students who voluntarily would turn in information on drug pushers was 13.8. But 19.1 per cent said they would co-operate and give information if requested specif- ically. The survey showed that 80.5 per cent would intervene physi- cally to assist a policeman in trouble or call for help. The council said the survey showed the between youth and police in Xembroke is "reassuring." although 30.7 per cent of youth felt that relations were "not gcod." The council said the survey might "be interpreted as a growing sentiment and desira for a return of law and order in community Me."
