Prof. Deatherage came Co Canada a year ago lo lake his position at the university. He had just returned froir service in Vietnam, and de- cided the U.S. was no longer for him. As a university professor, he must divide his time between teaching and research. Prof. Deatherage is researching the long term effects of alcoholism. Previously, it has been deter- mined that, over long periods of time, alcohol deteriorates the kidneys', liver, and brain.

Prof. Deatherage and his wife Ann, say they like Canada be- cause it is peaceful. "The U.S. is a pretty uncom- fortable place to be said Prof. Deatherage. "The cities are particularly unsafe to live s." The difference between Can- ada and the U.S., he feels, is that violence has never really been a part of Canada. He Ihe U.S. has always idolized the wild west, feeding violence to from a very young age. Prof. Deatherage bel i e v e s that much of the crime in the U.S. today can be attributed to drugs and drug addiction. He said that Canada is heav- ily influenced by the U.S.; how- ever, he hopes that the rise of nationalism which has shown up lately in Canada is strong and will not die out. Prof. Deatherage is not the stereotype professor with a pipe, wearing a tweed jacket complete with elbow patches and grey flannel pants.

Doug Dodds, director of the service, said the program is designed on sound genetic prin- ciples to help dairymen breed longer wearing and tetter- lasting cattle, recognizing that sound structure and conforma- tion have much to do with the wearing qualities of the off- spring from each mating. He said the objectives of the service are better utilization of superior genetics; to assist dairymen in the mosl correct mating, which will increase to- tal profits; and employment of new knowledge, new technol- ogy, new equipment and sound breeding principles. "A given herd can be im- proved in 11 specific areas by evaluating each cow and then establishing a breeding pro- gram, using sires whose traits are superior in those areas needing he said. "The result can be more nearly perfect cows over a per- uxl of years." He said the program com- bines production and function- al types of each animal in a herd, in an attempt to prevent perpetua lion of undesireable characteristics in that herd. If the evaluator finds an un- desireable trait in a cow, he will make sure the fanner doesn't gel semen from a bull which also carries that trait, he said. Through the service, the eval- uator is looking for a bull which has demonstrated through his own daughters that he has the ability lo improve Hie weak- ness of a cow's half-sister. In other words the semen of the i bull will not pass on weak- i nesses demonstrated by other i offspring wilh Ihe same blood lines as the bull. Once the herd has been eval- uated on all 11 areas, the in- formation is coded for use by a computer.
