S.E., CALGARY Name........Age .... Address .............. ....... Phone ........ AN ALL-CANADIAN COLLEGE Telephone operators won't report TORONTO (CP) - Walkouts by telephone operators in some Ontario and Quebec communities Friday are expected to spread through both provinces, union spokesmen said. More than 3,000 operators walked off their jobs Friday and others were refusing to report to work, delaying long-distance service to many points. Mary Lennox, president of the Traffic Employees Association which represents about 8,500 Bell Canada opeators, office staff and dining service workers employed in the two provinces, said the walkouts were "not authorized." The operators were protesting against delays in reaching a new collective agreement with the company. "It is unfortunate but I can understand the impatience of these girls," Miss Lennox said Mel James, a spokesman for the company, said service will be maintained by supervisory staff, though it will be slower than normal. The walkouts do not affect local calls and direct dialing but are interrupting operator-placed long-distance calls and other services that have to be handled by operators. Miss Lennox said people hired through private employment agencies also are manning switchboards. She said the union attempted to persuade its members to return to work but they have refused until the union can assure them that Bell is bargain' tag in good faith. "We're not in a position to give them that assurance at this time," she said. Union demands have not been made public but are reported to include increased Job security and wage parity with operators in British Columbia.

Mountain beauty to be preserved EDMONTON (CP) - The Alberta government plans to adopt regulations which will prevent future stop-mining operations from impairing the esthetic beauty of mountainous areas, Environment Minister Bill Yurko announced Friday. Mr. Yurko said a rewritten surface reclamatfon act will be introduced during the 1972 session of the legislature. Meanwhile the environment conservation authority will conduct public hearings into land utilization and development within the Canmore corridor west of Calgary. He said strip mining of coal up the face of Mount Rundle, near the eastern boundary of Banff National Park, will be restricted. The government will prevent the extension of strip mining further up the face of the mountain. Mr. Yurko said strip mining of .coal within the present works on Mount Rundle will be permitted to continue to completion, which is expected next summer, followed immediately by adequate reclamation. The minister said the government's decisions on the Mount Rundle operation were influenced by the fact that Can-more Mines Ltd. employs 300 people and has exhibited good corporate practices in the matter of reclamation practices. The progressive Conservative government considers that commitments made by governments prior to September, 1971, must generally be honored. Mr. Yurko said the forest on Mount Rundle is overly mature, interspersed with fallen and decaying timber, and is in danger of uncontrollable fire which could present an acute danger of the town of Canmore.

GENERAL FARM SUPPLIES PRESENTS THE Prison lif e reform urged SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - A private report for California prison officials has recommended dramatic changes in prison life, including closure of top-security Folsom and S'an Quentin prisons. The report, prepared by independent prison expert Robert Keldgord and a 62-member staff at a cost of $250,000, also suggested civilian dress for the state's 20,802 convicts, conjugal visits between husband and wives, background music during meals, brighter cell decor and "modesty" toilet panels. Conjugal visits have been permitted at only one prison, Te-hachapi. Some of the other 225 recommendations included ending almost all mall censorship, reducing to 10 days from 30 the maximum time for prisoners to be kept in isolation and elimination of two-man cells to reduce homosexuality. The report said California is on the wrong track trying to meet Its growing correction problems by just expanding its system. It said Northern California's 116-year-old San Quentin and 91-year-old Folsom prisons should be closed. Because of their "old age, poor location, or large size . . . decent living conditions are almost unattainable in them," the report said. It proposed that future prisons be smaller and closer to major population centres.
