The test case, to be heard by the Ontario Court of Appeal Tight Money Forces Delay In YM Camp Lease Purchase The National Parts Board bad o0ered the Lethbridge Family Y, for the YM Camp Inuspi lease until 1973, but DOW the tight money situation has forced the national parks to in- form the Family Y that there can be no pudjase vilhsn the coming year, said Ken Spence, spokesman. Family Y board of directors requested for tbe camp property near Waterloo because tbe national parks' offer did not even cover the cost of a hut recenUy constructed. AH ihort term leases of camps Money Markets Influenced By Women EDMONTON (CP) Women already have a strong influence w the stock market, but they could and should be taking a more active part. That's the opinion of Peter Thomas, president o( Western Growth Fund, who says Icca stock brokers contend that 25 per cent of all direct trading done by women. He said in an interview tha more than 50 per cent of ..a) traded are owned, into eoced and controlled by women. But he said many women who are able to are not participating in ownership of the Canadian economy, "Tbe seems be that bey are appreheosiv because they think that the mysteries of tbe market are be- yond them." 1 He added that an housewives and businesswomen should in- vest. "Through prudent investin there is no reason why the cannot boiid up an income an bare an annual wage.

The branch ordered Metropol itan Toronto council to pay to .the branch to be turned over to the female aides for back wages and to pay equal salaries in fubffe. The city derided it would contest tbe order. RULED ON MEANING The case ended in the Su- preme Court of Ontario where Mr. Justice Campbell Gran held that the word "same" in tfie Ontario legislation can be community summer pro- jraim. Ken Spence, general secre- ary of the Family Y has been itfending meetings with ofiic- als from the Lethbridge YWCA, scouts, guides, Junior Forest Vardens, department of youth, 4-H, and city recreation depart- ment' to consider the possibil- ity of shared camp facilities and joint leadership.

Since nursing aide: main! work with female patients ant orderlies with male patients, be ruled that the work performei was not identical and Metro council did not have to pay. Mr. Howard said the ruling effectively negates the prov law's equal pay legislation. "We believe that the .wo 'same' in our legislation has much wider meaning than Mr Justice Grant's definition." The ruling has meant branch is unable to proceec with equal pay orders against other nursing'homes noder t jurisdiction of Ti rbnto And although the branch proceeding with its inspection work in other industries, t whole status of tbe law doubt.

Liocal Drug Committee Switches Interest Transient Youth Of Major Concern loiiey Strings )oom Projects iy Indians NIAGARA FALLS, Ont. (CP) The strings attached to gov- ernment money doom Canadian Indians to failure in any project ley undertake, claims Delia >ekekow. Miss Opekekott- is organizing secretary of the Ontario Natives Development Fund, a Niagara alls group formed to raise uoaey from tbe community for itive projects. "Indian organizations can't as effectively as they lould if tliey have government she said. "We have to ght to get any." The fund channels money .alive groups only on request, therwise, said Miss Opekekow, would appear that the fund 'ontroiled the projects. There is hope that the fund win be used to develop a "cot- tage industry" for tbe souvenir market, as well as native art: .stry and craftsmanship. Projects suggested are a rec- reation program for isolated In-, ian teen-agers in Northern ario; sponsorship of a hockey earn in Moose Factory; a so- cial group for Northern Ontario Metis and the establishment of a fish plant in Northern Ontario. Miss Opekekow said that be- ore the majority of Ontario's 00.000- native people join: the white society, they must. be pven tbe tools of money and raowiedge. So they won't' be- come entrapped in city slums, Jiss Opekekow says, "we want to raise standards on the re- serve first." Many educational aids were By CHRISTINE PUHL Herald SUB Writer A drag-education committee, established Lethbridge two months' ago, has changed -by mutual consent to a 'drop-in Committee members Thurs- day decided me bousing o( traos- ent youth was of more major concern in the city than me drug problem. Al Mont, counsellor at the jemoridge Family Service, said tbe committee could get "hung- chasing the drug problem, ip at a time when tranaonl youth "is on our door-step." Mr. Mont said the drug prob- lem could not be studied unless the whole system of society was analyzed. Committee members, indicat- ed at file meeting that LVy 1eX Lethbridge was one year behind major cities in Canada, which have already tackled the issue of transient youth. Approximately 40 members of the committee includs repre- sentatives from department of youth, law enforcement, parks and recreation department, YWCA, Church Inter-Faith Com- mittee, Family Y, professional people and students. University term will be end- ing in two weeks and students i who cannot find good jobs win >e hitting the road for a vaca- tion. The committee it is ciety's responsibility to provide transient youth with beds and meals. Youth 'with DO place fa go can Mfome desperate enough after a few days with no meals to get into situations they win be very sorry for afterwords. It was suggested that the Family Y start the program by allowing youth passing through Lethbridge to sleep in the YM all-purpose room, if no other sototjoii can be found.

There are many varied ideas rift-in the committee as to the op priority of a centre. Some members said it should be a crash-pad type, others favor a oral youth drop-in centre and still others think it should be strictly for transieat youth. MoDy Mitchell, executive off! cer of Canadian Mental Health n Lethbridge [said her associa- 300 has' seen i macy mistakes made in Calgary and Edmonton already, bat Lethbridge is going bit have the same opes unless it starts taking other cities as examples. She said tbe feeling of her association is that one drop-in centre will not be sufficient There is a definite generation gap between teens 13 to 15 years and those IS and over. A drop- in centre that mixes the two age groups wfll not attract any of the older groups, she said.
