Ken Osborne said the prob- lem is that the ex-convicts may need special clothing to wear on the job or need money to support them until their first pay cheque or help in finding a place to stay. However, he said in an in- terview that of about a dozen men he has sent to the John Howard Society with such problems no one be helped and the result was return to crime on several oc- casions. John Eamoutar, executive secretary of the society, said his organization operates on a tight budget and just can't help everyone who needs it. Mr. Ramoutar said the John Howard Society is not basically a financial assistance agency but is involved in parole work, counselling, public education and the Halfway House project. Mr. Osborne said he could have placed men in truck-driv- ing jobs during the summer if they iiad been able to get from the John Howard Society the needed to rent a truck to get their licence.

"There have been no nega- tive results Just no results at all." TERMED RIDICULOUS The area is full of govern- ment people who spend a lot of time talking to people and discussing possible Industrial projects, but nothing concrete ever comes of it, he said. "Nobody knows what they're doing. Personally, I think its ridiculous." The commission plans to meet Friday with Industry Minister Ray Ratzlaff and So- cial Development Minister Ray Speaker to find out what the government plans to do in the area. "If they're not going to do anything they should say so and we can wasting our time and money." MacEwan College new concept EDMONTON (CP) Bring- ing school to the pupils instead of pupils to school will be the philosophy behind the Grant MacEwan Community College which is due to start classes next fall. Planners envisage a central building housing administration and some classrooms, with branches at strategic locations in the city. Barry Moore, chairman of the bojird of governors, said in an interview that among ideas being considered are "store- front" classrooms in poorer areas of the city, branches in suburban shopping centres and "drop-in" classes for people in- (ferested to upgrading their ed- ucation. Mr. Moore said the final cur- riculum has not been chosen yet, but courses will be offered in community development, re- creation, medical aides and so- cial services occupations.

U.S. toughens air attack policy WASHINGTON (AP) Tho Nixon administration has ex- panded its policy on air attacks against North Vietnam in what appears to be a deliberate strat- egy of increasing pressure on Hanoi while continuing U.S. troop withdrawals. Officials report a toughening attitude by administration lead- ers toward Norn Vietnam dur- ing the past months. The rea- sons appear to include frustra- tion over lack of progress in the Paris peace talks, the prisoner- of-war issue, and a determina- tion to prevent Hanoi from tak- ing advantage of declining American troop strength in Southeast Asia. The United States ended bombing of North Vietnam Oct. 31, 196U, and until earlier this year air strikes against the North were explained as retalia- tion for attacks on U.S. recon- naissance planes. In recent months, however, defence department spokesmen have expanded the reasons to include "protective reaction" against North Vietnamese rocket batteries firing a planes over neighboring Laos, interdic- tion of supplies moving down to South Vietnam, Cambodia or Laos and retaliation for terror shcllings of South Vietnamese cities. CONFIRM POLICY Furthermore, officials p r i- vately confirm the policy of ex- p a n d i n g retaliatory strikes when possible to include other targets in the general area to destroy supply buildups. Officials have also made clear that American combat planes flying protection for bombers operating against Communist positions in Laos can fire at missile bases in North Vietnam when they detect Communist radar locking on the bomber. Neither President Nixon nor his spokesmen have pulled all these reasons together into any formal new policy statement on bombing the North. And no responsible informant in the administration that Nixon has any intention of resuming the bombings Presi- den Lyndon B. Johnson finally brought to an end after bitter and sometimes violent public controversy. Small car size, small car price, 6 or v-8 engine 2-doors or 4, sporty styling. Move It!
