Ford workers in Britain face shorter work week LONDON (AP) Ford Motor Co. announced Tuesday that 20 per cent of all its British workers will go on a shorter work week March 3 to avert layoffs. British Ford thus joined the country's three other auto- makers in cutting production because of falling sales.

Mr. Hearn, 44, a chartered accountant who studied at the London School of Economics, established Peat Marwick in Canada 17 years ago in Van- couver with a small staff. Now his professional staff numbers close to 200. His firm has tackled many jobs including a study of the federal government's Op- portunities for Youth of the Local Program.
