Schools of hungry fish terrorized bathers at a public beach, sending several children and a 17 year old youth to the hospital Officials closed the beach and a police heli- copter circled the area ordering bathers and surfers to leave the water. Modern Algeria has deep roots in history book ALGIERS (CP) Algeria has only been a modern independent state for about 10 v ears but she has roots deep in ancient failed in ancient times Algeria was invaded or colonized by Phoenicians. Vandals. Byzantines. Arabs, Tuiks and finally the French from 18.30 onwards The French occupation was. at limited to the region along the Mediterranean coastline including the capital, but soon spread to the whole country However strong resistance the Algerians resulted in French armies spending about three quarters of a century in subduing the country The resistance was organized by the tribes who had retained their traditional administrative, religious and economic organizations Until the 20th century, the Algerians ceded their terntoi> step by step, finally- giving in to the superiority of the French military power The heart of the Algerians, however, retained their love 'ri dependence and attachment to a Moslem and Arab Algeria This became the basis !or the nationalist which 'n 1926 saw !ne founding of (he .North Africa Star party by a group of Algerian students living in France This partv whose policy was made known in 1933 demanded independence, rebirth of the Algerian nation, establishment of an army and parliament and universal suffrage In 1936. the party became established in Algeria, but the following was dissolved by the French government In May. 1945, the nationalist demonstrations began, just as the Second World War was coming to an end France met them with harsh repression and thousands of Algerians were killed or imprisoned However, this repression only served to stimulate the nationalist movement and "the idea that effective political action must be succeeded by armed revolutionary action A few years later, the national liberation army hegan to form. In November, 1954. it had 3.000 men, 20 months later it had In 1956 student and worker unions came onto the nationalist scene The French government launched a program aimed at flushing out the insurgents, but strikes broke out in the cities to show worker support for the revolutionaries The Algerian cause was debated in the United Nations and the right of the Algerian people to self-government was recognized Government information services under attack OTTAWA (CP) The federal government's information milinn a year-plus operation about 800 civil jour- nalists trying lo report government activities to the public Jeff Carruthers, an Ottawa based writer for FP Publications, says With few information officers are ignorant of their department's activities, often because senior officials purposely keep information from them, Mr. Carruthcrs told a seminar on Ihe mass media Information services have been sot up bv bureaucrats to head oft journalists looking for relevant facts, he told an audience that included government information officers The meeting was organized by the information department of the science ministry to discuss a government study of the quahu and effectiveness of science reporting in Canada Journalists who participated in the study indicated in a questionnaire that government information officers are the least reliable of all sources Mr Carruthers said the con- cept of information officers is ludicrous because their infor- mation is second-hand and news reports based on this mlormation is "third-hand communication." 01 ten news releases were so late they were useless, as the case with many news releases from the health department PARIS (CP) Four million foreigners, equivalent to the population of Norway, live in France In densely populated ateas such as Paris, at least one of 12 residents is an immigrant and one of three newcomers is from North Africa One of five workers is not French. On construction sites the proportion is nearly one ol three France leads uu' European Economic Community (EEC) countries in its foreign popu- lation, followed closely by West Germany, which has 3.6 million foreigners, Britain with 2 6 million, Belgium with and the Netherlands with 200.000. Denmark, Italy, Ireland and Luxembourg, the EEC's four remaining countries, trail far behind with about 10.000 lor- eigners or less France's foreign population originates more and more Irom the Maghreb countries and former French colonies in North Africa Last Januan, the labor and population department esti- mated that about 850.000 Alge- rians, workers and families, lived on French territory, along with about Mo- roccans and 125.000 Tunisians North Africans originating from Senegal, Mali, Ivory Coast and Nigeria numbered about There were also about 75u.- 000 Portuguese, 600.000 Ital- ians. Spanish and 75.- 000 Yugoslavians living in France at the start of the year Canadians numbered about During the last 10 years North Africans have con- stituted the second wave of foreigners coming to France The majority among them, especially Ihe Algerians, emi- grated under agreements be- tween France and their coun- ot origin The Franco-Algerian agree- ment, which ended last Dec 31 but which is to be extended lor a three-year period, re- sulted in the "official" entry ol 25.000 workers annually since 1968 The Spanish constituted the lirst wave of foreign workers to come to France from the end of 1962 to 1968 Since 1968 there has been a Portuguese wave of immigra- tion to France. Bel ore the 1960s, the foreign population ot France num- bered about 2 5 million and consisted mostly ot Italians, Poles and Belgians This foreign population is lairly young Half the men are between 20 and 45. The fertility rate of the group is higher than the French aver- age, with about births a year Foreign parents pro- duce one child of eight in France The foreigners, especially those from Maghreb and Black Africa, live generally in less than enviable conditions Studies have shown that hous- ing conditions were bad for 46 per cent of the Algerians and 30 per cent of the Portuguese The workers, usually less well paid than the French, have less protection and fewer rights. The jobs they hold are, in a large majority refused by the nationals. They cannot legally work on French territory without a permit given by labor department services Prime Minister Pierre Mes- smer has said repeatedly that the presence of immigrant workers is a vital necessity to maintain French growth. Without them many large companies would have to close or lower production con- siderably Elderly foreigners cost the French people almost nothing as the majority return to their country of origin.
