And they like it. "Troop, 'tenshun. For- ward march. Left, right, left, right bellows the corporal at the sweating teen- agers who tramp with some- thing less than steel-honed precision in the Moss Park ar- mories "I think it's a good program certainly keeps a lot of boys off the streets in the said Master War- rant Officer Hilary Donville of the Royal Canadian Dragoons. In Canada, boys were enrolled in the summer sol- dier program, which Allan MacEachen, minister of man- power and immigration, an- nounced in June as an answer to student unemployment this summer. The program was to supply students with summer jobs, both in the militia and on the regular labor market. But the plan became so popu- lar that that number was in- creased until some students had to be turned away. The defence department of- fers five summer programs for male and female students and students were in the seven-week militia program. Another were hired by the department to do mainte- nance work at military instal- lations, such as painting, re- pairing, office and mess work. In the militia program which started July 13, a stu- dent in the first two weeks of basic training earned 57 a day and an additional 50 cents a day after this. Students in non-soldier jobs were paid the going rate in the area in which they worked. Cost of uie plan was about mil- lion. INTEREST AROUSED Maj. W. E. Lloyd, battery commander of the 7th Toronto Hegiment, an artillery unit, said of the summer soldiers: "I think that all they wanted basically was summer em- ployment, but my approach now is to arouse their interest so that they will stay with the unit." Sam Cirone, 21, who joined the 7th Toronto Regiment as a summer soldier said: "Other summers I've worked for Lob- laws, but I thought tliis might be something different. I wanted to learn about respon- sibility." The most exciting part of the program for the student soldier's was the three-day ex- ercise at Camp Petawawa, 100 miles northwest of Ot- tawa. The boys climbed cliffs, negotiated rafts on the Ottawa River, fired their artillery pieces and slept in tents through three days of rain. "I got used to said Sam. "The only thing, it didn't last long enough."

They have breaks for coffee and lunch and spend the after- noons in sporting activities. The students learn to fire semi-automatic rifles and ma- chine-guns, and learn field craft, such as digging trenches, first aid, military law, compass work, map reading, service customs and hygiene. Defence Minister Leo Cad- ieux said he only has one r.e- gret about the program.
