Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew cancelled an official visit to Kuala Lumpur today, his first since Singapore forced out of the Malaysian federation in 1965. The Malay government of Malaysia and the Chinese gov- ernment of Singapors are fre- quently at odds, reflecting the racial tensions which con- stantly plague Malaysia. But until this week they appeared to be improving. Singapore police picked up the three young Malaysians as hippies, detained thorn for 17 hours and cut their hair be- fore they released them. Ma- lay-language newspapers in Kuala Lumpm played up the incident and reported that the Singapore police in conversa- tion with the youths had abused Malaysia's leaders. Lee told reporters later.

The manpower department won't know until October how many of the students seeking summer jobs had luck. 3ut the number who did not is expected to be sizable. Meanwhile, enrolment in the range from higher school to university postgraduate levels is expected to increase by MO, or 6.3 per cent, next month. The figure will continue to rise through the 1970s. A study by A. E. Kyffin of the manpower department ties the problem of summer unemploy- ment to high birth rates in the 1950s, high post-war immigra- ;ion and prolongation of formal education. Births rose from in 1947 to in 1953 and to in 1960, the p e a k year.

PASS PEAK IN 1980s "In about seven years time It will move into the post-second- ary age he says. "Not until the early 1980s will the peak have passed through all stages of the education sys- tem." At the same time, youngsters have been staying in school longer. In 1950, fewer than half the 14-17 age group remained in school. The figure is about dea by 1975. Even a boom economy couldn't handle the influx of students into the sum- mer labor force, economists hink. NEED NEW MEASURES :New and unusual measures are needed to cope with the sit- Mr. Kyffin says. Manpower officials say more and more students may have to ;urn to voluntary work as a summer occupation. Among the "new and unusual measures" this summer, the government threw open armor- ,es across the country to ac- commodate travelling youths. The manpower department las 73 special offices scattered about the country to serve stu- dents Manpower Minister Allan MacEachen said in June the jovernraent would spend million to provide "openings" I :or students this summer. About million would go a provide paid jobs in the public service.

All this means that "working your way through college" may be little more than a quaint It was at the start of similar hearings here Monday that Canadian Railway Labor Asso- ciation asked Mr.' Pickersgill to disqualify himself from :hree-man board looking into the case of the Canadian.
