Trouble spots appear in student job field By IIU1) Cannilhn I'rcss Staff Writer. Students who had difficulty finding a summer jch InsL year may find a slight shuffle Ihe location of opportunities this year but similar problems concerning Ihe number of job openings. Some large corporations have reduced student employ- ment plans but Iho Canadian Cliamlwr of Commerce is con- tinuing Ils program 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 special programs avail- able to students arc being ex- panded. A cross-Canada survey by The Canadian Press shows Dial little change in over-all siudeut employment levels is anticipated for the summer Excluding banks works both ways TORONTO (CP) W. Eorle chairman and president of llic Royal Bank of Canada, said today that foreign banks should lie allowed to do business in Canmlii. Mr. McLanghlin told an Em- pire Club m rating he believes the 19G7 changes in ILc Bank Act which prevent foreign banks from ODCTa'ing here and se- verely limit foreign investment In Canadian banks are short- sighted. "If Canada excludes foreign banks, it be only a matter of it is now hap- pening in somc> parts of I he Canadian banks are excluded from or restricted In operating in oilier countries." M r. disagreed with a suggestion thai United Slates dollar reserves held hy Ihfi Canadian government he used lo buy back control of some firms controlled hy companies. The suggestion was made recently hy Erie Kicrans, 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 he did not sec Ihe need for any country lo do more with ils excess U.S. dollars than invest in shorl-term U.S. government securities. "To use U.S. dollar holdings in a more aggresive way, such as to buy up US.-owned assets, either at home or abroad, is more likely to be upsetting than seltling. "It would get rid of Ihc dollar hangover all right, but it might kill the patient in the process. Retaliation and currency wars, dirty floating and disorderly markets would all he the ouL- come."

A reccnl manpower depart- ment survey showed IhaL Lho average unemployment rate last summer of returning stu- dents wits 17.9 per rang- ing from 22.2 per cenL at the high-school level lo Cl per for university students. I1IGIIKST IN QUEBF.C Regionally, student unem- ployment was highest in per lowest in the Prairie prov- inces where sLudenls helping out on family farms were classed as employed. The Canadian Chamter of Commerce urges members to hire o numlxT o[ sLudenls equivalent to five per ccnL of regular work stu- denL for every regular jebs. Neil V. German, chamber president, recenOy that student hiring last year amounted to 5.4 per cent of lotal employment of member rirma. Dell Canada policy sols B five-per-cenl guideline and a company spokesman says cur- rent cmploymcnl levels indi- rale alxtut students will be hired, but the number is jiol fixed because local offices do the employing.

Aluminum Co. of Canada LLd. expecLs its student hir- ings "ill "substantially less" this summer. M.-MIKETS DEl'IlRSSED Both Lhe nickel and nlumt- 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 last year and tile eslimate for this vcar is that employment will be close to (lie J970 total of 2.070. The federal government hired about M.ufX) students last summpr but this year Canada Manpower projects a need for only based on departmental requests. A survey o[ major compa- nies in the Prairie prounces indicates that hiring plans will be atoul Lhe same this year as la.st year. Most major British Colum- bia companies say they antici- pate r.o cuts in sludent em- ployment. However, pulp and paper companies say they may reduce student emloy- ment fevels because of the de- pressed market for pulp. _ Solorday, April 1, 197J _ THE inHBRIBGE HERALD 9 Body spurs speculation it could he hijacker VANCOUVER, Wash.
