Reports indicated the navy and air were sarlori- ally indisposed toward it. THE SHOCK OF A VOICE Only a year-and-a-half gram especially for infants who TORONTO (CP) The choosing of a president for a university is a delicate task because (he job has become one of the most punishing in the country. It took nine months to fill the post at the Univer- sity of Toronto last year and six other Canadian universi- ties are or will soon be look- ing for presidents: Carleton in Ottawa McMasler in Hamil- ton Trent in Peterborough, Ont, Lakehead at Thunder Bay, Ont., the University of Victoria in British Columbia, and Laval at Quebec City. The presidency calls for "an impossible combination of Claude Bissell told a women's club shortly after ending 13 years as U. of T. president. The amount of time taken up by the job was "ter- rifying." It's a time of convulsive change for universities, tar- gels for criticisms from within and outcry about high costs, gov- ernment cuts on support, po- litical infighting among facul- ties and departments and stu- dent demands for more power. Dr. BisseU gave the board ol governors a year's notice he would quit June 30, 1970. Two-thirds of that year had gone before the business-nom- inated board authorized a search committee of three governors, three professors, three students, two adminis- trators and two alumni. The committee decided the new president should be rela- tively young, have a broad ac- Saturday, February II, 1972 THE LETHBKIDOI HCTAID Baldwin seeks re-election GRANDE PRAIRIE (CP) Gerald Baldwin, MP for Peace River, announced today he will seek reflection in the next federal election which Is ex- pected sometime this year. The Progressive Conserva- Uvo house leader, in a tele, phone interview from his Ot- tawa office, said he will seek the nomination at a party con- vention hi the constituency early this spring. Soldiers like the North By STUART LAKE OTTAWA (CP) Gen. R. M. Withers and his staff, at North- ern Command headquarters in Yellow-knife, N.W.T., are begin- ning to feel at home in the Ca- nadian North. The objective now is to con- vince northerners there is a place for them in the armed forces. In Ottawa for R three-day meeting on national objectives in the Nsrth and how the forces can contribute towards achiev- ing them, Gen. Withers said 50 of the 52 members of his head- quarters staff want to serve a second northern hitch after their first two-year tour is com- pleted. Part of the appeal, he said in an interview, is the challenge of a new job. Another is that tire I impact of what they are doing can be seen almost immedi- ately. "We have identified 63 emer- gencies in which we can be use- ful said Gen. Withers who joined the forces in 1948 and who has seen sen-ice in Korea and Germany. One recent emergency was a fire that threatened the mining town of Pine Point, about DO miles from Yellowknife. much- tlemenls and building needed bridges. Gen. Withers says more northerners are needed in the forces to reflect a national image. For that reason, he has urged that up to 100 new re- cruits should be northerners.

Phone 328-5447 TROOPS MOBILIZED Within 40 minutes, said the general, the armed forces were mobilized to fight the blaze. Other emergencies the forces arc geared to handle are loss of power in remote settlements and the search for lost aircraft and overland expeditions. A recent policy paper on the forces urged them to be more active in the North, including increased reconnaissance o r sovereignty flights, and to strengthen their ability to de- fend the territory. This has led to more military exercises in the N.W.T. and the Yukon. Some troops now are on an exercise near Frob- isher Bay on Baffin Island. Another- new duty of the forces is participating in na- tional development projects. In the North, this has meant building airstrips in remote set- join up is something else. "Now when the northerners think of jobs, they think of be- coming bush pilots or teach- ers he says. This reflects their familiarity with those profes- sions. The feeling is that once the North gets used to seeing troops about, they'll add defence as a possible career.

An estimated 1.5 million pounds of Red No. 2, made from coal tar, are used annually to color breakfast cereal, gum, candy, pet foods, gelatin des- serts, soft drinks, lipstick and pill coatings. Its presence is noted only as "artificial color- ing" on a label. _ Dr. Wolfe, said FDA scientists have confirmed portions of Rus- sian studies indicating the dye causes tumors hi rats and has toxic effects on chicken and rat embryos.

A rough screening pruned more than half and was down to 30 when it took the first of a series of many secret bal- lots. In this way, (lie list was gradually whittled down until the five top prospects were in- vited to meet the committee. By late April, 1971, they were considering three men: Ernest Sirluck, president of the University of Manitoba; Fred Can-others, president of I lie University of Calgary, and Dr John Evans, dean of med- icine at McMaster University in Hamilton. In secret balloting, Mr. Sir- luck was eliminated; he had been in Winnipeg less than a year and U. of T. would make enemies by taking him so soon. TURNED IT DOWN Mr. Can-others insisted he wasn't interested in the job. He had been president at Cal- gary since 1969. 'The interview with Dr. Evans took place in a Toronto hotel room. Mr. Can-others won by one vote, however, and his name was submitted to the board. But Mr. Can-others refused to negotiate directly, engaging a lawyer. The Calgary president came to Toronto and he and his wife inspected the Rosedale man- sion that goes with the job. But the board found they couldn't come to terms and he left for a conference speaking engagement in England. On his return, he declined the offer. The committee met for the last time Sept. 7 and by an overwhelming vote chose Dr. Evans. At a board meeting Nov. 18, Dr. Evans, 48, be- came the youngest man ever to be named president of U. of T trllionallv Sound' Trust the Weight Watchers organization to bring you the most advanced, icieatHlullf "oped weiehl control program to help you lose weight and keep it off..
