Al Cunningham of Calgary, chief negotiator for CUPE, said the parties were so far apart on several areas that wages were not discussed. The negotiators met for 3 1-2 days this week and three weeks last month. Mr. Cunningham said CUPE will apply to the provincial government for a conciliator. Salaries now range from a month for clerical positions to for nursing orderlies. Mr. Cunningham said CUPE will be looking for wage parity with workers in British Columbia, a move that would require monthly raises averaging Indians boycott classes EDMONTON (CP) Nicolas loannides, an Ed- monton high school teacher who was caught with his fami- ly on Cyprus during that country's recent hostilities, died Thursday night in hospital.

The International Red Cross provided assistance to provide Mr. loannides, a Greek Cypriot native, with needed medication. Mr. loannides and his fami- ly arrived back in Edmonton. Sept. 28 on a Canadian Forces aircraft after being evacuated from Cyprus. He was accom- panied on the flight from Eu- rope by armed forces medical personnel.

College faculty threatens strike EDMONTON (CP) The 200 member faculty associa- tion at Grant MacEwan Com- munity College has threaten- ed to strike if no progress is made in contract talks.

The association, in a state- ment issued Thursday night, demanded that the board name a negotiating com- mittee to be available on a day to day basis at the request of management or staff. "The faculty of this college is thoroughly upset over the lack of progress that is being made in the present contract said Mr. Homann.

Clover, the lost cat, home after 18 months CALGARY (CP) A three year old Sealpoint Siamese cat was reunited with her owners this week months and 428 miles since the cat jumped from the family car at Revelstoke, B.C. Ken Miller, a Calgary bank manager, said the cat, named Clover, appeared on his mother m law's doorstep in New Westminster, B.C., Wednesday, howling for atten- tion The saga of Clover began in July 1973 when the cat jumped out of the Miller's car in Revelstoke while the family was in the process of moving from Kelowna, BC to Calgary. After a fruitless search of the area, the Millers gave up their pet for lost and con- tinued on to Calgary. Mr. Miller's mother in law called the Millers shortly after the cat appeared at her home, where the Millers had been visiting before beginning their move to Calgary. No one knows for sure, but the Millers think the cat may have gone home to Kelowna first, but when no one was home there she made her way to New Westminster. "She still has all her old habits, including the bad said Mr. Miller. "The only difference in her behavior is that she seems to sleep a little more maybe she is just tired from the plane ride (from New West- minster to Calgary) on market LONDON (Reuter) Two Australian researchers reported Friday successful preliminary trials 'of a male contraceptive pill based on synthetic hormones already on the market. Drs. Michael and Maxine Briggs of the biochemistry de- partment of Alfred Hospital in Melbourne, Australia, wrote in Nature magazine that the pill made five volunteers tem- porarily sterile. No serious side-effects were reported. The pill is a combination of a female hor- mone methyltestosterone, component of contraceptive pills used by millions of a male hor- used in treating men with bone disorders such as os- teoporosis, symptoms of the so-called "male and also taken as a weight and strength developer by some women athletes. Estrogens are known to cause infertility in men but they also produce side-effects including loss of sexual desire, impotence and even development of female physical characteristics. Androgens were seen as a pos- sible way of countering these side-effects. With a view to avoiding the lengthy laboratory testing re- quired for any new drugs, the Australian researchers looked at the possibility of using com- binations of drugs already approved for sale. They examined two men with osteoporosis who had been treated with an estrogen- androgen combination for several months, and found both patients were sterile but suffered no harmful side- effects. Then they tested the com- bination on five healthy males, who took the combined pill twice a day for 24 weeks. After nine weeks, four of them had stopped producing sperm. The fifth man stopped produc- ing sperm after 15 weeks. in urban transport firm Smile pure dynamite CALGARY (CP) A man whose smile was pure dyna- mite has been acquitted of charges of possession of an ex- plosive for an illegal purpose The "unlawful purpose" al- leged by the Crown in court yesterday was the treatment of a nagging toothache.

John Gerla, City Clerk EDMONTON (CP) The Alberta government will invest between million and million in the urban tran- sportation development cor- poration established by the Ontario government, Industry Minister Fred Peacock an- nounced Friday. Mr. Peacock said Alberta will play a major financial role in the corporation and the total proposed capitalization will be between million and million. He said Alberta has two basic objectives it likes to gain experience in the urban transportation field which would be applicable to Ed- monton and Calgary and also hopes that components for urban transport vehicles will be produced by Alberta manufacturers. He added he could not be specific about a final decision on the Alberta involvement and Ottawa's decision also to become involved had delayed the process. The precise cor- porate structure remains to be settled to balance the various government interests. Mr. Peacock said it should not be possible for two provin- cial governments to vote against federal interests or any two partners to vote against the remaining govern- ment shareholder. Mr. Peacock said it was possible other provincial governments may become in- volved in the development which will concentrate on the design of transportation systems for intermediate size cities. An agreement was reached between Alberta and Ontario earlier this year on Alberta participation, but no financial details were announced at that time.
