WINNIPEG (CP) A third-year honors history stu- dent at the University of Win- nipeg will be part of an expe- dition to salvage the ill-fated luxury liner Titanic. Laura Nield, 19, will act as a recorder of events and pro- cedures during the salvage operation being undertaken by a team headed by Douglas Woolley ot Baldock, England. The Titanic sank 53 years ago when she struck an ice- berg on her maiden voyage. The ship went to the bottom about 95 miles south of the Grand Banks of New- Marshals Aii'horne ZURICH (AP) Security guards began service today aboard Swissair planes in an ef- fort to foil hijacking attempts, the airline announced. The marshals were picked from police volunteers who have received special training the last few days. Swissair has 26 jetliners flying international and domestic routes. A DC-8 was hijacked and blown up along with two foundland with a loss of lives. "This is such a departure from my normal way of said Miss Nield wlien in- formed that she had been cho- sen as part of the salvage team. The project, expected to cost about million, is sched- uled to begin this month.

(Next to Lcthbridne locker end Seafoods) University Grant Dips EDMONTON Uni- ersity of Alberta will get near- ly million less than expect- ed in provincial government grants because full-time enrol- ment is not as high as antici- pated. The university's budget was based on a projection of fulltime students but prelimin- ary totals show only about 500 full-time students. Final day for registration is Wednes- day. The provincial government grant to the province's three universities is for each full-time student enrolled as of Dec. 1. Dr. Max Wyman, university president, said he has asked for IB report on registration, which I he expects Monday. r i Benefit Shoes Ltd. 615 4th Ave. S.

"The government is concern- ed with (he onslaught of publi- city in Ibis it read. "In the event that you are unable or unwilling lo comply with the conditions of tliis let- ter I must inform you that the government will not negotiate further with Mr. Day and that it will forthwith take steps lo dismiss Mr. Day." The settlement still must be approved by the cabinet which meets Tuesday. Mr. Day originally was charged with having sexual in- ercourse with Iwo girls under he aga of 14. These were with- drawn at a preliminary hear- ing in March and substituted with two counts of incest which were dismissed in court. The crown then laid two charges of indecent assault on a female, one of which was dis- missed. A new charge of incest was laid and the charges were heard in Alberta Supreme Court. Mr. Day's complaint has been that he should have been rein- stated or given another govern- ment job immediately after lie was acquitted. He was film censor for 3V2 years. He said he has been unable Lo find a job outside tbc gov- ernment because of his age. He s 47. His plans for the future arc uncertain, he said. Ho would consider running as a candidate in the next provincial election if asked, but he did not say for which party. He was suspend- ed by the Social Credit govern- ment. The Unitarian Church in Ed- monton, to which Mr. Day he- longs, was to meet Sunday to discuss plans to send a dele- gation to Premier Strom about the case. Film societies in Ed- monton, and Calgary, the Al- berta Civil Liberties Associa- tion and Progressive Conserva- tive MLA Dave Russell had de- manded that the government reinstate Mr. Day.

Many Companies which, a few years ago, had written or unwritten policies against hir- ing convicted criminals are now willing "within limita- tions" to take them on, Mr. Spiro said in an interview.
