Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 18, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta _____________ Tliundoy, Mciy 18, 1972 THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID 29 50 hours a week at a year Pity the poor university teacher in Britain By CY FOX LONDON ljilv the poor university tradicr in Britain, lie's nol rainy :i si'iilleinan of cisurc at all someone nits in hours of wnrk a week it an average salary "I about a year. This is the cliscowry of a new report compiled liy a eommittce of top university officials ami based on a survey of one-third of Brilain's academics. ''We come out of the survey very well c o m p a r c d with other non-manual occupations and said Laurie Sapper, general secretary of the Association of University Teachers. But other university men had their doubts about the report, one of them working time in the ease of a professional highbrow is not something which can be measured enthusiasm o f crs by the current gyrations youthful academics quickly of the student generation, deteriorating into a ''round of "Student look what perfunctory labor by means of they're rio.'ng with your which tu simulate Ilic life of I money." declared the wing Daily Express on Ihe Not so savs the committee subject of troubles involving of vice-chancellors and princi- undergraduates at Lancaster pals, Ihe body that made the j University and elsewhere, new report. British taxpayers last year Aller reading Ihe document, provided more than mil-1 experts writing for the higher j lion million i in grants education supplement pub- I for students attending Charles Carter. Carter, himself a former participant in political and student protest causes, contends that, academic activities at Lancaster cannot survive as long as boycott arid other .strike movements continue to harass what he terms the free flow of reasonable opinions. The Lancaster protesters alleged 1 hat leftist lecturer David Craig was victimized regard mystlf as being always at work on my said. Prof. Maurice Peston of Queen Mary College, London. Even at a football game, he spends the minutes before the opening whistle menially dissecting the home teams' ticket louts in equilibrating supply and demand." KINDS IIOL'ltS LONG But most comments foeuse< on the report's ostensible demolition of the old chestnut about port-sipping professors perpetually wallowing in faculty-room easy chairs. One pioneer sociologist, writing decades ago, saw the academic now appears to be "typically a man who works long hours, most of which are devoted to undergraduate teaching, personal research and other activities i which contribute to teaching j and research within the uni-i versily." j But skepticism remains, exemplified by a cartoon portray i n g two well-fed academics in a stale of near somnolence as they luxuriate in their faculty lounge, i "It's scandalous, Norman." 1 one says to the other. "I've i been working a 50-liour week all these years and not known anything about it." STUDENTS PROTEST Such skeptical comments are evoked too in some In view of this figure, Britons who think along the lines of The Express usually consider student protest activities little more than tiresome examples of sheer ingratitude. On the other hand, the young protesters seize on issues like the trouble over a left-wing lecturer at LanQas-ter. The result at Lancaster University has been angry student boycott action of the way he gave vent to his radicalism in thp practical work of leaching literature. "Mindless, militant hooliganism has spread like a disease in campuses throughout the complained The Express. But the left-wing New Statesman cites the Lancaster trouble as proving that even in Britain universities actually try to avoid or dispense with teachers whose political opinions arc not liked.

The Australian inventor of a "picture language" now finds he may have led to a break- t' :ough in the field of commu- nications and medical ther- apy. His 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 Centre here. Mr. Bliss was sn excited about the tests he mortgaged his home in Australia to raise enough money to fly to Can- ada and watch them being conducted.

It was one of these books, hidden away in a Sticl- bury. Out., library, that drew attention to his work. A research team, composed of engineering, medical and educational workers, was trying to develop and evaluate a communications system to meet Ihe needs of a specific group of children. 11 discov- ered the book and began test- ing the system. The children, many of whom are victims of cerebral palsy, experienced difficulty communicating with thera- pists and each other. Now. using Mr. Bliss's lan- guage, they are communicat- ing. The children are provided with a semi-circular elec- j Ironic tray fastened to the chairs above their laps. Mr. Bliss's symbols are arranged around the perimeter of the tray. The children learn to move an arrow to the neces- sary symbol in order to com- municate an idea or need. Barbara Royds. director of communications relations at tiie centre, said the picture language will not take the place of speech therapy, but will open doors to communi- cation so children, where pos- sible, may learn lo speak later. The language makes use of simple semantics and sym- bolic logic. THURSDAY, FRIDAY and __ SATURDAY ONLY _ BUSHES 2 YR. FIELD GROWN Save now Clearance priced MAY FEATURE..........................
