Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 25, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta University women teachers pay discrimination claimed . OTTAWA (CP) - A report by the Canadian Association of University Teachers says most women academics are discriminated against in pay, promotion and employment fringe benefits auch as pension plans. The report was prepared for the royal commission on the status of women by Dr. R. A. H. Little plant blamed for sheep deaths SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -Scientists said here a poisonous little plant caused the deaths of more than 1,250 sheep on a western Utah range. Federal and state investigators said the cause was haloge-ton, a six-inch high, greyish-brown plant that first showed up in the United States at Wells, Nev., in 1938. Scientists said the plant, which sheep do not eat unless extremely hungry, causes breathing problems and later Weeding at the nose. Death comes in a matter of hours. "It was halogeton poisoning," said Dr. Wayne Blnns, director of the federal agriculture department poisonous plant laboratory at Utah State University in Logan. His findings were supported by tiie state veterinarian, Dr. James F. Schoenfeld, and Dr. Robert Pendleton, University of Utah radiologist. The announcement ended speculation that the sheep, part of a herd of 2,400 owned by Clarence Ingram of Nephi, Utah, died from either radiation or nerve gas. The sheep were worth $40 each. Robson. a sociology professor at the University of British Columbia, and Mireille Lapolnte, a research officer with the teachers' association. The study is based on information from the Dominion Bureau of Statistics and questionnaires sent to Canadian universities. The researchers found that during the 1965-66 academic year "the mean salary for men in Canadian universities was $10,690, while women received an average salary of $8,428, a difference of $2,262 a year in favor of men." Thus, the average women's annual salary construed only 78.8 per cent of the average for men. The report says that slightly more than half of this discrepancy results from a direct sex difference. The remainder results from different ways in which other factors affect salaries of male and female academics. Rank exerts a greater influence on the salary difference than all other factors combined, the reports says. With few exceptions, mer, Pattern Trucks recalled for clutch test PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) -General Motors' GMC Truck and Coach Division announced here it has recalled 53,600 vehicles, including 9,600 school buses, because their clutch linkages may be subject to breakage. The firm said it is notifying owners of 44,000 E Model medium-duty trucks and 9,600 S Model school bus chassis to bring their vehicles in for chassis modifications to eliminate the problem. cooks in tend to dominate the higher ac-a d e m i c and administrative ranks, while women are concentrated in the lower ranks such as assistant professor, lecturer or instructor. "With increasing age, sex discrimination in rank diminishes, and it is less also for those with higher earned degrees," the report says. Yet information gathered showed that women "progress through the ranks at a con-s i d e r a b 1 y slower pace than men." Only women who have doctor's degrees stand as much chance of becoming a university dean as men, and then only when they are 60 years old ov more, the report says. The chances of a woman becoming a department head were similar. "At best, the chances of a woman, with the same competence as a man, becoming a full professor before the age of 50 are only about a third as good as the man's chances." As a result of salary differences, women academics also were at a disadvantage in terms of employment fringe benefits such as pension plans, life and long-term disability insurance plans. The report also says that on being hired women seem more likely than men to be appointed to lower ranks, even though their competence is the same. In the Atlantic and western regions, the proportions of women academicians were slightly higher than in Quebec and Ontario and salaries paid by universities showed less sex discrimination. In Quebec and Ontario, however, women's salaries were generally less than men's in the same position.
