Trouble spots appear in student job field By IIUI> Canadian Press Staff Writer. Students who had difficulty finding a summer job last year may find a slight shuffle in the location of opportunities this year but similar problems concerning the number of job openings. Some large corporations have reduced student employ- ment plans but Ihe Canadian Chamber of Commerce is con- tinuing its progi-am of urging businesses to hire more stu- dents for part-time work. Projections by federal gov- ernment agencies indicate a drop in student-job openings but programs avail- able to students are being ex- panded. A cross-Canada survey by The Canadian Press shows that little change in over-all student employment levels is anticipated for the summer Excluding banks ivorks both ways TORONTO (CP) W. Earle McLaughlin. chairman and president of Ihc Royal Bank o[ Canada, said today that foreign banks should he allowed to do business in Canada. Mr. McLaughlin told an Em- pire Club meeting he believes the 19G7 changes in the Bank Act which prevent foreign hanks from onerating here and se- verely limit foreign investment in Canadian banks are short- sighted. "If Canada excludes foreign banks, it will he only a matter of it is now hap- pening in some parts of the? Canadian banks are excluded from or restricted In operating in other countries." M r. McLauRhlin disagreed with a suggestion that United Slates dollar reserves held by the Canadian government he- used lo buy back control of some firms controlled by U.S. companies. The suggestion was made recently by Eric Kierans, a former federal cabinet minis- ter who resigned because of a disagreement over economic policies. Mr. McLaughlin, who did not name Mr. Kierans as the propo- nent of the idea, said be ditl not see Ihe need for any country lo do more witli its excess U.S. dollars than invest in short-term U.S. government securities. "To use U.S. dollar holdings in a more aggresive way, such as to buy up U.S.-owned assets, either at home or abroad, is more likely to be upsetting than settling. "It would get rid of the dollar hangover all right, but it might kill the patient in the process Retaliation and currency wars dirty floating and disorderly markets would all be tlie out come."

A recent manpower depart- ment survey showed that the average unemployment rate last summer of returning stu- dcnls was 17.9 per ing from 22.2 per cent at the high-school level lo C.I per cent for university students. HIGHEST IN' QUEBEC Regionally, student unem- ployment was highest in per lowest in the Prairie prov- inces where students helping out on family farms were classed as employed. The Canadian Chamter ol Commerce urges its members to hire a number of students equivalent to five per cent of regular work stu- dent for every 20 regular jobs. Neil V. German, chamber president, reported recently that student hiring last year amounted to 5.4 per cent of total employment of member firms. Bell Canada policy sets a five-per-cent guideline and a company spokesman says cur- rent employment levels indi- cate about students will be hired, but the number is not fixed because local offices do the employing. International Nickel Co. Canrda Ltd. anticipates sharp drop in its summer em- ployment program and Fal- ccn'briclge Nickel Mines Ltd has announced a curtailment of its program. Aluminum Co. of Canada Ltd. expects its student hir- ings will bo "substantially less" this summer. MARKETS DEPRESSED Both the nickel and alumi- num markets have been de- pressed and Inco and Alcan have made sharp cuts in regu- lar employment. However, these companies may be exceptions and Nor anda Mines Ltd. expects in creased student employment Noranda Group companies hired about students las' year and the estimate for this year is that employment will be close to tte 1970 total of 2.070. The federal government hired about 23.000 student? iast summer but this year Canada Manpower projects a need for only based on departmental requests. A survey of major compa- nies in the Prairie provinces indicates that hiring plans will be about the some this year as last year. Most major British Colum- bia companies say they antici- pate no cuts in sludent em- ployment. However, pulp and pr.per companies say they may reduce student emioy- nient levels because of the de- pressed market for pulp. DEAN OSEEN licOnsG 61 1 Phono 739-2183 Turin Altn.

Service- men dressed in period naval costumes and carrying a dum- my coffin containing six bottles of rum, paraded sombrly through the dockyard here at the Canadian Forces Base in nearby Esquimau. The brief ceremony mapped the death of the daily rnm ra- tion for the Canadian forces. As the coffin carriers, mem- bers of Uie submarine HMCS Rainbow, completed their pro- cession, Rear Admiral Richard Leir, commander of the Pacifir Maritime Forces, called e "splice (he mainbrace." j Tills allowed all the sailors aboard ships in (he harbor to hoist their final tot of the de- mon ruin. S The daily tcyt of ruin is a na-; val tradition dating back to the 1600s. Last year (he British gov- ernment decided to discontinue the practice for the Royal Navy and the Canadian Navy follow- ed suit. The rum ration will be re- placed by a new plan, which allows Canadian sailors on board ships lo have access to n bar beginning April 1. Similar ceremonies marking Ihe enil of the ration were held aboard navy vessels in Halifax.

BAN FAT COPS NEW YORK CAP) Police Commissioner Patrick Murphy i .says he wants "healthier, hap- pior and more efficient men." And that means no more 1 fat cops. For years we've been saying rest fights cavities. And now the Canadian Dental Association is saying it too. The Canadian Dental Association is the national organization of dentists in Canada Recently they issued the following statement about Crest toothpaste: "Crest has been shown to be an effective decay-preventive dentifrice that can be of significant value when used in a conscientiously applied program of oral hygiene and regular professional care" Now you don't have to take just our word for it when we say Crest rights cavities. The Canadian Dental Ass iation says so too. Fighting cavities is the whole idea behind Crest.
