"It is turning us into a nation of he said. "We are debasing our children, we are debasing our adults."

(CP) In separate ceremonies, Mani- toba resources minister Sidney Green officially marked the start of construction on this new town, about 500 miles northeast of Winnipeg and opened a new million bridge over the Churchill River. The town, being developed by a provincial crown corporation to house employees of Sherritt- Gordon Mines Limited's Ruttan Lake mine, is expected to have a population of about by 1973. French-language colleges closed MONTREAL (CP) Mont- real's two French-language uni- versities remained closed Tues- day because of labor disputes. A small majority of Univer- sity of Montreal professors voted Monday not to hold classes until a strike by non-teaching personnel, now in its 15th day, is settled. At the University of Quebec's Montreal campus, professors continued a strike for the eighth day while contract negotiations resumed under a conciliator. All classes at U of M were halted when non-teaching em- ployees walked out Oct. 4 to protest the slowness of negotia- tions to back demands for wage parity with Laval University, crease, was approved by a vote of 102 to 19.

However, the union said the return-to-work agreement pro- vides that the company rein- state, by seniority, not only the 135 workers who went on strike but also increase the Brantford work force to 140 bv Nov. 1. job security and professional status. The strikers' union, local 1244, Canadian Union of Public Em- ployees, asked professors to ig- nore picket lines because pro- fessors could give the union more effective support from within the campus. WON'T TEACH Monday, the Association of Professors at U of M agreed they could enter the building but would refrain from teach- ing.. Law professors and architec- ture students and professors voted to continue to not cross picket lines "in view of the es- sential nature of the auxiliary services" provided by the non- teaching personnel. Negotiations between the ad- ministration of the University of Quebec in Montreal and striking faculty members began Monday under conciliator Yvan Blain. The professors voted in favor of a strike last Wednesday after their union rejected an offer for the professors' first collective agreement.

WILL R. WILSON tinder fire Top lawyer quits in scandal WASHINGTON (.AP) The U.S. government's top criminal lawyer, Assistant Attorney-Gen- eral Will R. Wilson, has quit under fire for his ties to finan- cial wheeler-dealer Frank W. Sharp, who is the central figure in a Texas stock scandal. Wilson said he has been the target of politically-based char- acter assassinations and re- signed to save the Nixon admin- istration further embarrass- ment. Representative Henry B. Gon- zalez (Dem.-Tex.) carried on a one-man campaign to force Wil- son's dismissal since mid-June. In recent weeks a number of national publications also sug- gested Wilson should quit. Wilson was general counsel for Sharp's bank, realty firm and an insurance company in a period from 1967 to early 1969, during which the Securities and Exchange Commission said their assets were "systemati- cally looted." Wilson has not been accused of any crime in the Sharp scan- dal. DEMOCRATS IMPLICAT5D Federal grand juries in Dallas and Houston are still consider- ing material in the case, which broke nine months ago and im- plicated top stale Democratic officeholders. Wilson is a former Texas Su- preme Court justice, state At- torney-general and Democrat. He ran for the U.S. Senate in a special election in 1961 and then for governor in a Democratic primary in 1962, losing both times, before switching to tie Republican Patty When he left public office in late 1962, he put his net worth at He began representing Sharp and some of his firms in the spring of 1903. By January, 1961, when he entered the jus- tice department, he was worth million but credited this tri- ple increase to smart land in- vestments and inheritances rath- er than his proximity to Sharp. Sesame Street people have done it again NEW YORK (AP) The Sesame Street people have done it again with a new show that makes reading interest- ing and fun. The Electric Company, which has its premiere Mon- day on 200 public television stations and 12 commercial stations in the United States, seems certain to do for read- ing what Sesame Street did for the alphabet and numbers among pre-school-age chil- dren. Subtle humor, outrageous puns and skits performed by a repertory them Bill Cosby, Rita Moreno, Judy Graubert, Morgan Free- man, and Skip used to coax viewers to read words, phrases and sentences flashed onto the screen. The show has its own rock group, the Short Circus. The half-hour daily program is aimed at school children aged 7-9, and particularly those with reading problems. Its makers believe it also may benefit functionally illiterate teen-agers and adults. "It's almost a contradiction to use television to teach said David D. Con- nell, executive producer for the C h i 1 d r e n 's Television Workshop. "But the general agreement was that it was worth trying. And it was agreed that we should use the cafeteria sys- tem of using elements from a number of different reading melhods.

It's tough enough to write a comedy one that teaches TV popular with young the 'fr' consonant blend, for instance, is really he said. Samuel Gibbon Jr., one of the original producers of Ses- ame Street, spenf a year studying if a reading show was passible. Work on the show itself began early this year. The ?7-million budget for l.'IO shows was put up to the U.S. office of education, Ford Foundation, Carnegie Corp., Coip. for Public Broadcast- ing, and Mobil Oil Corp. Seen in preview, The Elec- tric Company looks like an ed- ucational offspring of Laugh- In. It is fcsl-paccd electroni- cally oriented, and packed with original songs that point up the lessons. "This is not just another TV show, but an experiment and an attempt to find out just what this medium can Connell said.

Dr. Gerald L. Looney of the University of Arizona, Tucson, told the annual meeting of the American Academy of Pedia- trics that a pre-kindergarten child spends about 64 per cent of Us waking time before a tele- vision set. At most colleges, 16 class- room hours a week is consi- dered a full load. This comes to far less time in the classroom than before the TV set if the 64 per cent figure is correct and assuming the average child is awake more than 25 hours a week. Looney cited television re- search studies which have found that: age 14. a child has seen human beings killed on television. the time a child gets through high school, he has spent hours in the class- room while watching television for hours, during which time he has seen com- mercials. average adult spends 10 years of his life watching televi- COLLEGE NOW SHOWING nt and p.m. MATINEE DAILY AT P.M.
