Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 18, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta ______________ Thuridoy, May IB, 1972 THE LEIHBRIDGE HERMI; 29 50 hours a week a I a A car Pity the poor university teacher in Britain CV FOX LONDON (C.T) lllc poor university teacher in Britain. He's mil really a gentleman of leisure nl all bill Muneone who puts ill hours of work a week at an average salary ol about a year. This is the discovery of a new report compiled by a committee, of lop university officials and based on a sur- vey of one-third of liriiain's j academics. "We come out of Ihe survey j very well c o in p a r c d with oilier non-manual occupations and said Laurie Sapper, general secretary of the Association of University Teachers. Bui other university men had their doubts about the re- port, one of Ilium suggesting that working lime in the- ease of a professional highbrow is not something which can be measured precisely. "As an academic economisl I regard iin'sHI as burnt; al- ways al work on my said. Prof. .Maurice J'eslon of Queen Mary College, London.

FINDS IIOL'ltS LONG Bui most comments focused on the report's ostensible demolition of the old chestnut about port-Kipping professors perpetually wallowing in fac- ulty-room easy chairs. One pioneer sociologist, writing decades ago, saw the Here are the ANSWERS for your NEWS QUIZ PART I: 1-False; 2-c; 3 4-False; 5-False PART ]l: 2-b; 3-D; 4-e; 5-d PART III, l-a; 3-e; 4-c; 5-b PICTURE QUIZ: Henry Kissinger intellectual t'lilliUMiiKm o f academics quickly deU'rioraling into a ''round of [icrlunciory labor by means of which In simulate the lite of genlk'inen." Not so. says Ihe conimiUee of vice-chancellor.1; and princi- pals, I be body that, made the new report. After reading (he document, experts writing for the higher education supplement p u b- said the academic now ap- pears to lie "typically a man who works long hours, most of which are devoted Lo under- graduate leaching, personal research and other activities which conlribule to teaching and research within the uni- versity.'' Bui skepticism remains, ex- emplified by a cartoon poi- (raying two well-fed aca- demics in a slate of near som- nolence as they luxuriate in their [acuity lounge. "It's scandalous, Norman.1' one says to the other. "I've hecn working a 50-hour week all these years and not known anything about it." STUDENTS PROTEST Such skeptical comments are evoked too in some quart- ers by the current gyrations of the student generation.

The Australian inventor of a "picliu'e language" now finds he may have led to a break- t' :ough in the field of commu- nications and medical ther- apy. liis language, composed of simple pictorial symbols for writing, typing and printing that can he read in all lan- guages without translation, is being tested at the Ontario Crippled Children's C e n I r e here.

Out., library, thai drew addition lo his work. A research team, composed of engineering, medical and educational worker s. was trying to develop and evaluate a communications system to meet the needs of a specific group of children. It discov- ered the book and began lesL- ing Hie system. The c li 11 d r e n, many of whom arc victims of cerebral palsy, experienced difficulty communicating with thera- pists and each oilier. Now, using Mr. Bliss's lan- guage, they are communicat- ing. The children are provided with a semi-circular elec- tronic tray fastened to ths chairs above their laps. Mr. Bliss's symbols are arranged around the perimeter of the tray. The children learn lo move an arrow to the neces- sary symbol in order lo com- municate an idea or need, Barbara Royds. director of communications relations at ihe centre, said the picture language will not take (lie place of speech therapy, but will open doors lo communi- cation so children, where pos- sible, may learn lo epcak later. The language makes use of simple semantics and sym- bolic logic. victM'hancellor Charles Carter.
