On dirty books: David Orlikow, NDP member for Winnipeg North, was informed that in 1967 a total of 115 books and pamphlets "of an immoral and iiideceut character" were seized by customs officers. Last year, were seized. A final decision on what constitutes a duty book rests with the deputy minister of national revenue. His decisions can be appealed hi the courts.

(AP Tra Key To VANCOUVER (CP) A text-wok approach to training all taff members from managers o dishwashers has helped boost wo young Vancouver restaura-eurs into the big league of azza parlors. John Levine, 32, started Jon's 10 years ago with a borrowed Now he and rartner Fred Smolen, 25, have ive licensed dining rooms. Three weeks ago they announced that Cornat Industries Ltd. of Vancouver, a major financial and industrial corporation, had purchased a half interest to their operation, paving he way for a ex-lansion to British Columbia. Mr. Levine is president. Mr. Smolen, who became his partner to 1962 after working as a tart-time helper while attending ligh school, is vice-president uid director of operations. Mr. Levine, who studied business administration two years at Seattle University and later at Michigan State University, says the company's systematic approach to training staff is the key to success. DEVELOPED TEXTBOOKS The partners have developed ;extbooks of instructions for every position and they prefer to train their own personnel. For example, they woulc rather hire young women who aave never before been waitresses, so they can pick up the pizzarama system without the need to "unlearn" previous ex perience. It works this way: 'Maybe out of 35 applicants we- encourage five to train After first interviews, we give the girl a training manual, a wine list, a menu and a pad o: paper.

Douglas, Liberal MP I Takes In Far JS By JIM OSBORNE EDMONTON (CP) A wildlife inventory is under way in the Canadian North which its sponsors will use to co-ordinate exploration and development while protecting birds, fish and animals. A spokesman for the Canadian wildlife service said the inventory will culminate in a series of and the best available data on locations and times of year vital to certain species of wildlife. Dr. Doug Stevens, acting administrator for the wildlife service in Edmonton, said the material, will be the first central registry of its type and will be available to anyone conducting exploration _or development activities hi the North. The inventory is being handled by Renewable ventory orth Consulting Services, an Edmonton-based ecological consulting firm headed by Ron JacWmchuk, a former wildlife service biologist. Mr. Jackimchuk said in an interview that an example of data collected was location of a goose-breeding area hi the Keewatin district in the Northwest Territories. SEASON IS CRUCIAL It was previously known only to specialists; to engineers the area might appear as only a swamp, he said. But 1.5 million geese inhabit the region during breeding seasons. Disturbances at .that time from seismic blasts, for example, could be a disaster yet no harm would result; at other times of the year. Dr. Stevens said the inventory- also could provide essential data for the federal government or the N.W.T. council to draft, a land-use plan. It should also permit drawing accurate and reasonable wildlife sanctuaries and establishing dates when certain species must be undisturbed. At other times, exploration and other development activities could be licensed there. The study covers about two million square miles and 35 principal species, ranging from caribou to walrus. It has required compilation of scattered information, some pre-viously unpublished, from notes and the experience of biologists, geologists and others with up to 20 years in the North. Dr. Stevens said the results expected are "not the final word by any but should isolate areas where more research, is required. He said another example where restrictions probably will be necessary is off-sbore drilling in fish and sea-mammal spawning grounds. Some concentrations represent the total North American population and activity at the Workers Get-Pay Boost OTTAWA (CP) -'More than professional public servants have been awarded salary increases higher than the six established by the government, the Professional Institute of the Public Service of Canada announced today. Members of the economics, sociology and statistics and mathematics groups have been awarded salary increases ranging from seven to eight per cent hi the first year and six to seven. per cent in the second year of a two-year period. The contract will run from June 30 of this year to June 30, 1972. The award .was made by a public service arbitration tribunal. The institute asked for arbitration on behalf of the groups on July 15, 1970, when negotiations with the broke down. The institute was calling for salary increases of about 12 per cent for most levels on, a one year contract and the government offered a two-year contract with no increases for the first year and two-per-cent in crease for the second year.

Scientists reported recently that deep sea drilling has turned up startling evidence that the Mediterranean apparently was closed off and dried up as the sun evaporated UK water. Dr. William B. F. Ryan, a Columbia University marine geologist who shared leadership of the scientific team, said the finding was unexpected. He told a news conference that the growth of mountains closed off the Mediterranean from the Atlantic and Indian oceans. Because the Mediterranean is in "delicate he said, with rivers bringing to it less than the sun evaporates, it eventually dried up. The Glomar Challenger, the research vessel used by the team, dug up cores from the sea bottom revealing alternating layers of salt deposits and normal marine, or ocean, deposits of sediment. .Ryan said with the Strait of Gibraltar closed by a mountain chain, the Mediterranean's key source of ocean water disappeared. The alternating layers indicated that there were periods when' the sea was first dry, then received water as the Atlantic somehow ays Ryan through the strait, then dried up again. Finally, ercsian of the mountain cham af Gibraltar abou five million years ago opened up the narrow channel that exists today, about five to six miles wide, at the narrowest point, and -ntich allows the Mediterranean to exist as i does GLOER My thanks to the doctors, nurses, especially to the nurses in the Medical Intensive Care Unit, for the good care I received while I was a patient in the Municipal Hospital; also for the visitors, gifts, cards and also, but not least; my family.

Canada, however, will be the only country among the 13 major beef exporters to the U.S. to benefit from the additional 2 million pounds which will be allowed in. The new level now will be set at million pounds compared with million pounds estimated hi June when agreements on voluntary shipment restraints were reached.

"Professionally, I feel very angry at the history these conflicts. They could have been avoided had we been there at the time with the information." Dr. Stevens said the study should have been done five or 10 years ago. "But my experience with industry is that they are very cooperative on how and where (exploration) should be done. Industry operates, by necessity, in its own interests, but it shouldn't be necessary to squabble." Dr. Stevens said that the study priority areas were those where exploration is most active and those deemed most critical to certain species of wildlife. The published material will consist of large-scale maps containing a key-coding system to detailed data in a study report of species, type of breeding habitat, critical times of year for each and areas where certain in Wolverhampton Wandsworth, Plymouth and Liv erpool.

Mr. Ronning said in an interview he fully expected a declaration of a unilateral ceasefire and preparations for the withdrawal of United States troops. He said this is the only way in which the killing would be stopped in southeast Asia. He doubted that anything would come of the president's move, even though it was a move hi the right direction. Mr. Ronning, 75, was born in China and served as Canadian ambassador at posts in Asia.
