20 THE LETHBRiDOE HERALD Tuesday, Augosl 3, 1971----------------------------------------- Hard-working students amaze army officers CAMP P ET A WA WA. Onl.l (CP) At Ibis sprawling, 01- lawa Valley armed forces base, high school and university stu- dents from across Onlario are .spending Ihcir .summer doing work ranging from mililia Iniin ing to ecology studies. Some are performing as lum- berjacks wielding axes and chainsaws as clear away brush and lirnbei from either side of a 20-mile stretch of gravel road that winds through t ii e heavily-forested military base. The students about of them arc involved in the fed- eral government's student sum- mer employment program, de- signed lo provide hard-to-get work for young people aged IB to ?A. The army has some 130 regu- lars ucd tip in supervisory roles, but appeals convinced that its manpower investment is wpll wnri'i'vhile. The 85 or so young bushwack- ers, officially" called range- clearcrs, are engaged in some- thing more lhan a make-work project. Camp said Hie long cast-west road that curls through the base serves as a firebreak and there was a pressing need to push back Ihe encroaching forest. The sides of Ihe washboard roadway are txnng cleared by a total of yards. "We've been quite amazed by Ihc amount of work these kids put said an officer. "It looks as if we'll have to find new work for them if they keep going the way they arc." IIIIU5D TEN WEEKS The students were hired for 10 weeks and get paid S2.38 an hour for an eight hour day, with meals and accommodation their own responsibility. Most are from the Pembroke area and live with their families. Dr. McClure sees camps levels "niggardly" charge They liupc lo finish the sum- mci' with an average of perhaps 5600 in Iheir pockels, though some, says Jason L'Abhe of Pembroke, a University of Western Onlario student, are "lilo-iVing it as it comes along." More lhan 600 students, se- lected from across the province, aie undergoing a leadership Iraining program tied to studies in ecology the science that deals with (ho hahils of living organisms in relation to their environment. With leaders chosen from among themselves, groups of students go tramping through the wilderness examining such subjects as the effect of forest fires on the forest floor and wildlife, and the effects c! human'bush-trampling on soil, wildlife and vegetation. The course also involves training in citizenship and mak- ing speeches. Participants in the six-week program get the same as the militia trainees, a day. Like the militiamen, they also get their meals and accommo- dation free. TOROXTO (CPi Dr. Rob-1 ert McClurc, a former modera- j lor of the United Church of Can- ada, has just relumed from a tour of refugee camps in East Pakistan and charged that Ca- nadians have hccn niggardly in providing relief aid.

"As of this weekend the amount given by Canadians to all the relief agencies combined works out at something like three cents a the 70- year-old churchman said in an interview Friday. The Canadian Red Cross says Ihe rmount collected to dale by the Combined Appeal stands at S382.G77, plus 565.000 given by the Mcnnonites. "Even the S9 million allocated by the Canadian government would not feed the ref- ugees for more than 48 Dr. McClure said. "Fifty cents From every Cana- dian given immediately would help feed Ihe slaning at least a little longer." Dr. McClure, who has served J4 years as a missionary sur- geon in the Far East, also vis- ited the Philippines, Indonesia and West Pakistan during his three-month tour. The purpose of the tour, sponsored by Oxfam, was to see what can be done to speed up family plan- ning programs in the areas vis- ited. 20-lb. box SIMPSONS-SEARS LAUNDRY DETERGENT Eiucn "ond detergent Intely?

Anti-war senators i m m e d i- ately set to work trying to or- ganize a filibuster to block Se- nate passage at least until Con- gress returns from a month-long summer recess in September. The bill does not include the Se- nate's nine-month deadline for an end to the Vietnam war. Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield, who wrote the con- troversial nine-month deadline Senate amendment, was ex- pected to decide today whether he will even call the bill up in the Senate before recess begins next Friday. Senate conferees led by armed services chairman John C. Stennis (Dem. gave in lo the House negotiators' ada- mant stand against the dead- line, brep.king n deadlock that lias left Ihe United Slates mili- tary draft in limbo a month al- ready.
