Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 19, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, Augusl 19, 1770 THE IOTHBRIDGE HERALD 9 Youth Coluiim B.C. School Band In New Zealand By J. C. GKAIIAM Canadian1 Press Correspondent AUCKLAND. N.Z. (CP) Sixty young Canadians liave concluded a highly successful five-week visit to New Zealand giving performances as mem- bers of their school symphonic band. From Windy Ridge high school 20 miles cast of Vancou- ver, they toured the country in July and August accompanied by five teachers and eight par- ents. Fewer Workers Hired OTTAWA (CP) Federal government statistics show thai fewer workers were em ployed this spring than a year earlier in the basic industries o primary production, rnanufac turing, and tile utilities includ ing transportation. These are the industries thai most directly reflect good times or hard times in the economy as a whole. There was a decline of in the numbers employed in manufacturing, a drop of 1.6 per cent to 1.8 million in the tola employment roll of 7.9 million. Employment in agriculture and other primary Industrie! declined by to Employment in transportation and the other utilities was down by to The figures are given in a Do- minion Bureau of Statistics re- port reviewing the employmen picture as reported earlier in monthly statements about em- ployment and unemployment. UP IN JULY Unemployment in July rose to 6.7 per cent of the 8.4 million labor force, taking into account seasonal adjustments. The total number of workers employed rose in the sec- ond quarter of this year, an in- crease of one per cent. Major increases in employment in the service industries overcame the declining employment in basic industry. This one-per-cent increase fol- lowed a gain of only nine-tenths of one per cent in total employ- ment during thf. first quarter ol 1970 over the same period lasl year. DBS said year-to-year gain, of one per cent less had not occurred previously in Canada since the recent long period of economic expansion began in 1961. Male Semployment was vir- tually unchanged this spring from what it was in April, May and June lasl year. There was a three-per-cent increase in fem- ale employment, accounting en- tirely for the one-per-cent in- crease in tile total employment roll. Expo '70 Award Won By Canada OSAKA, Japan (CP) Can- ada has won the top architec- tural award at Expo '70 with its popular' pavilion of mirrored outer slopes and spacious Um- bered interior. The Architectural Institute of Japan made the announcement in naming winners of its special Expo awards. Czechoslovakia placed second and Switzerland third. Seventy-seven countries participated. Canada's pavilion also soared ahead of Russia and the United States, welcoming its 20 mil- lionth visitor today. The Rus- sians have reported they are nearing that figure and the Americans, despite their exhib- ited moon rock, have reported less than 13.5 million. Canadian Commissioner Gen- eral Patrick Reid will receive the architectural prize at award ceremonies at Expo Sept. 4. He expressed delight with "this su- preme Japanese which also is a triumph for the designers, Vancouver architects Erickson-Massey. The pavilion's square feet of mirrors form an open truncated pyramid sloped at 45 degrees. Daily they reflect thou- sands of Expo visitors and the skies above them, landscaping other pavilions and Hie flutter- ing flags r-f many nations. Japanese magazines have voted Csnnda's pavilion the fa- vorite of Japanese youth, earn- ing it the title The Young Pavil- ion. Funds were raised by yariou: efforts on the part of pupils an< their families, plus conlribu lions from service clubs ant' others and government assist ance. Tour leader Gordon Lang, former Nnw Zealandcr who has been teaching for the last seven years in Canada, is conductor the band. Commenting on the tour to wards its conclusion he said the response and 'enthusiasm engen dcred by the trip had exceedet all expectations. He hoped tha the tour would be a forerunner to further exchanges of visits. The emphasis on the tour had been on a sociological plane. The young Canadians for the most part stayed with New Zea land pupils of their own age a the schools where they gave performances. Successful as the tour was on the musical social level, i really hit the front pages o? th< newspapers when a member o the band was instrumental in the finding of a man, which se off a large-scale manhunt for his associate. MAY BE ESCAPER While staying at the town o Thames, band member Rick Rathbone, 17, and the girl with whom he was billeted, Sally Noakes, 17, head girl of Thames high school, went to a deserted shack to gather daffodils. When nearly up the driveway they saw a car hidden under branches. Rick thought he saw a figure in the house, which supposed to be unoccupied. Suspicious that something wa amiss, they returned home and Sally's father called police. The result was the arrest of man who is still to appear on number of charges and an in- tensive manhunt for another man whom the police decline to identify but whom the news- papers say is George Wilder, by far New Zealand's most widely known prison escaper. Wilder had been freed on pa role but disappeared and had been sought by police for failing to report. During previous years he three times escaped from prison and spent long periods at large. Police were still combing the rugged surrounding districts in mid-August. Rick Rathbone went with po- lice to the shack when the man was arrested and stayed in the car with him while police made an immediate search for his as- sociate. The publicity attending the affair brought the band un- expected attention, and Rick's picture was on front pages throughout the country. Later police found three loaded weapons underneath the shack where the arrest was made. New Styling For Luxury Automobiles LAS VEGAS, Nev.
