Mr. Reeves felt today's bright sunshine was a good opportunity to go to the mainland by horse-and-buggy, and he harnessed faithful Donald Roy for the trip to the CNR ferry terminal here. Twenty cents a foot, said the ticket man on the ferry Abegweit. That, figured .Mr. Reeves, meant 20 cents for each of Donald Roy's four feet. Rut the ticket man, with full backing from CNR officials in regional headquarters at Moncton, N.B., explained that it was on a length basis and Donald Roy counted in the measuring. A CNR spokesman said it was the first tune in 15 years that a horse-and-buggy used the ferries, which carry thousands of cars and trucks l>e-tween here and Cape Tormen-Une, N.B. University cuts back PhD classes TORONTO (CP) - Crowbar, the biggest blues and rock group to emerge from Canada since The Band, has signed a three-year recording contract with Paramount Records of New York. Agent Frank Davies said Crowbar's first album, Official Music, went so well in Canada-it frequently sold out in big-city record stores-that the group decided to fry its fortunes south of the border. The Hamilton-based1 band is led by Richard Newell, who performs under the pseudonym of King Biscuit Boy. Richard started his fortunes with a Hamilton high school group and soon found himself on the professional circuit, blowing great blues on his harmonica at one-night stands. Then he studied harp after hearing the instrument played by the late Little Walter on a Nashville radio station. "I just freaked out at the sound of it." he recalled. By 1967. the young blues cat had worked his way to Helena, Ark., where he met Ronnie Hawkins, Canada's rock-a-billy-gone-south. On the lookout for a barpitt as a innovation into the rock scene, the Hawk was impressed with Richard's ability and hired him. The Nashville promoter called Richard King Biscuit Boy after a regular radio program sponsored by the local King Biscuit Flour Co. The name stuck. However, it was the Biscuit's way of bringing the harmonica to life that ranked him with the best blues men. TraveEing through southern Ontario for more than two years, he gathered a huge following of blues fans who could not believe anyone north of the Mason-Dixon Line could play such blues-not even the great Paul Butterfield. Biscuit Boy now b looking for a new angle to develop on the old New Orleans blues theme because "I can find no major change" in the rock scene at present. Explaining his methods, the band leader said he doesn't write much music clown until after he and the Crowbar first play it through. He explained' he often walks around for a week with little fragments of a new number floating around in his head, then he gets the group together to jam the piece out. Biscuit Boy said the band's first album was composed a day before the recording sesj sion. His Biscuit's Boogie, Hoy Hoy Hoy and Badly Bent on Official Music are powerful demonstrations of his creative ability. TORONTO (CP) - The University of Toronto cut back its graduate enrolment this fall in areas where students with PhDs are having difficulty getting jobs, says the dean of graduate studies. Douglas Baines said enrolment was cut about 25 per cent in the basic sciences of physics, chemistry and mathematics, about 20 per cent in zoology and botany and about 10 per cent in engineering. But in some other fields such as geology, computer science and education, in which a shortage of Ph.Ds continues, enrolment was increased so that graduate enrolment remained at 6,300 students, unchanged from last year. The dean was commenting Tuesday night on a report by the University of Toronto Graduate .Students' Union showing that many doctoral graduates cannot find work. In Ottawa, Dr. Frank Kelly, science adviser to the Science Council of Canada, said industry has become "less enamored of the PhD generally" because they are often considered over-specialized and set in their ways. TOO MANY APPLY Jack Ronson, in charge of recruiting for the Steel Co. of Canada Ltd., says Stelco gets far more PhD applicants than it has jobs for. A major drawback is that the PhDs are "too theoretical" to fit into Stelco's applied research program. A spokesman for Bell Canada said Bell does not consider hiring PhDs because "they want too much money. Agriculture prospects bright EDMONTON -CP) - H. A. R u s t e, Alberta agriculture minister, said here he is optimistic about the future of agriculture in the province. "Grain sales prospects are much brighter now," he said. "The wheat board has assured us there will be an eight bushel quota this year." His optimism was accentuated by increased sales of all field crops, he told 300 delegates to the 62nd annual convention of the Alberta Association of Municipal Districts. "There is one disturbing factor, however, with grain marketing. Prices have been falling steadily and it appears that net returns will be fewer." The minister suggested one way out of this dilemma was to continue to increase livestock production. The livestock processing industry is Alberta's foremost industry, he said. At Ford Motor Co. of Canada Ltd. at Oakville, officials cannot remember a PhD applying for a job. -"We're not looking for them in the fields in which we're active in Canada," explained a spokesman. E. L. Veitch, personnel director for Union Carbide Canada Ltd., said the company has hired only a few PhDs in Canada.
