Alberta Firm Specializes In Animal Breeding EDMONTON (CP) You say you're a farmer in Upper Mud- wallow, B.C., and you're having a problem with your hogs be- cause they're not breeding pro- perly? An Edmonton company may have an answer for you. Prairie Animal Breeders' En- terprises is a firm of animal scientists that operates on a worldwide basis trying to bring animal breeding into the jet age. It has made its influence felt as far away as Finland and Singapore and caters to clients who want a more confidential relationship with consulting ge- neticists and more service than a government facility could provide. The biggest development to date was production of a crossbred1 Finnsheep that will produce 50 more lambs from DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC ROSS A. HOSACK Certified Dental Mechanic National Store Bldg.

Phone 327-7524 University President Criticized OTTAWA (CP) The Cana- dian Association of University Teachers Tuesday criticized Di Kennelh Strand, president of Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, B.C., for his dismissal of two professors who partici- pated in a strike at the univer- sity last October. The university fired Dr. Kath- leen Aberle, professor of anthro- pology, and Dr. David Potter, professor of sociology, three weeks ago. The association said in a news release that Dr. Strand had ig- nored the findings of a properly constituted committee which had been set up to arbitrate the dispute. The committee, composed of representatives of both sides of the dispute, had found that Dr. Strand had no right to recom mend the dismissal of the pro- fessors to the university's board of governors. The CAUT also described Dr Strand's treatment of Dr. John Leggett, a member of the fac- ulty of the school's political sci ence and anthropology depart- ment until Monday, as cynical. The news release said Dr Strand had been attempting to have Dr. Leggett dismissed until he discovered the profes- sor's contract ran out on Aug 31, at which lime he lifted Dr Leggett's suspension and re- scinded dismissal procures, leaving Dr. Leggett no recourse :o clear his name' The association said Dr. Leg- gett's contract should be ex- snded for a year. The strike occurred when stu- dents and faculty members in ;he department took exception :o what they considered admin- istrative injustice.

EDMONTON (CP) The Edmonton Film Society says the provincial government's treatment of Jack Day, Alber- t's suspended film censor, ii intolerable. Mr. Day was suspended last December when two morals charges were laid against him and remained under suspen- sion after he was acquitted July 23. Joining its Calgary counter part in seeking Mr. Day's re instatement, the Edmonton so ciety said "we consider it in tolerable that Mr. Day is being further penalized as a result o an accusation of wlu'ch he ha been completely exonerated."

S.t.e p h e Longer Vacations Proposed In Norwegian Document OSLO (AP) A Norwegian medical study says the five-day work week fails to provide a re- laxing weekend, and people need longer annual vacations. The standard vacation in Nor- way is already four wee Sxed by law. The new report recommends five weeks for peo- ple reaching the age of 40. six weeks for those of 50 and seven weeks for 60-year-olds. The study, by a medical asso- ciation commitete, says the scramble to get out of town on weekend jaunts and to get back again tends to make a weekend as strenuous as work. The study quotes an expert on as saying: "Medically viewed, the five-day week is meaningless, even absurd. It is njurious to health." The committee chairman. Odd Bjerke, says: "In a week- end people don't get the relaxa- tion they need. The rush to use the leisure hours produces a stress situation like the rest of ;he week." Shift work disturbs the body's daily rhythm, he asserts. The study suggests that shift work- ers longer vacations, re- [ardless of age. Bjerke says the committee is tware that its proposals present practical difficulties becaus production and business have tc keep running. But he suggests i now is easier to spread vaca tions over the whole yeai Cheap air travel enables peopl to take winter trips to the south thus releasing them from th traditional pattern of May-to- September vacations. la Western Europe the five- day week is universal in Aus tria, the two Germanys, Swe- den, Finland, Britain, Denmark the Soviet Union and Yugosla via. In France the week varies be tween five and six days, with unions aiming for a standan 40-hour week. Spain and Italy still have a six-day week. Switz erland has a maximum work week of 46 hours for industry and 50 hours for commerce, bn employers generally keep beta the limit. Only Sweden and Spain match Norway in giving everybody month's paid vacation. Mos other countries have a mini mum of two weeks rising to as much as 40 days a year accord ing to service and status. The Norwegian committee suggests that many people would prefer longer vacations to more pay.
