Mackasey describes 'confidence crisis' NEW YORK (CP) A society that values economic growth more highly than human growth has created a crisis of confidence "in everything but human greed and Postmaster- General Bryce Mackasey of Canada said today. Calling for a return to a re- vamped work ethic, he told the Canadian Society of New York that "civilization today faces its greatest moment of danger." Business, government, sci- ence and education all have fallen short of society's ex- pectations, causing loss of confidence in institutions and a general disillusionment, he said. However, current knowledge and technology gave hope that the crisis might be a turning point to a better future. Mr. Mackasey, a former la- bor minister, said an emphasis on human growth would end the treatment of people as data for computers or statistics for an opinion poll. "We can scrap the adver- sary system that perpetuates union management war. Get rid of union restrictions that hold production down. Stop interfering with business at working level and give it direction at policy level." MORE EVIDENT In his speech, text of which was released in advance, Mr. Mackasey said the short- comings of society in recent years have placed "man's ani- mal nature more in evidence than ever." Government had become enmeshed in "a maze of rules, regulations and business promoted planned obsolescence and failed to humanize automation which science, by misplacing its'ef- forts, threatens man with ex- tinction, "if not from the atom bomb, then from destruction of his environment." Education had promised most of all for man's improve- ment and counteraction of his "animal Mr. Mackasey said. "But in the '50s, educators downgraded the humanities, and universities became technical schools. Then, in the '60s, educators rationalized self-indulgence. "They tolerated illegal drugs. They let boys and girls sleep together. They recogniz- ed student groups committed openly to violence." GETTING BETTER? Mr. Mackasey said despite the "crisis of confidence" there are encouraging signs. Restrained energy con- sumption by North Americans faced by energy shortages was one example of a return to thrift "in a new a conservation ethic in a minimum waste economy." "There are signs that we're forging a new work ethic. I'm thinking of programs for job enrichment and worker participation. But when and if the work ethic revives, it won't be in its old form." Instead of working just for money or out of fear, people would work for a purpose that, gives them a sense of worth, "because it feeds a belief in perfection for its own sake." Mr. Mackasey said Canada is looking to the United States to take the lead in building a new order. "And I think Canadians in the U.S. have got to remind Americans that our nationalism isn't anti- American, just pro-Cana- dian."

(CP) Despite signs of progress in meetfng the hous- ing shortage in this oil sands boom town, tents and converted buses continue to be home for some workers The reasons are simple. One out of every five employees of the service industry and an in- dustrial park can't afford in- dividual housing. Even government employees, whose average an- nual income is can barely afford the cost of buy- ing a mobile home and lot. And homes in Thickwood Heights a mis- nomer because the developer cleared the site of trees are being constructed solely for the use of Syncrude Canada Ltd. and Great Canadian Oil Sands (GCOS) employees. A press contingent toured the community 275 miles northeast of Edmonton to see the three main housing devel- opments. Thickwood Heights, Death toll THE CANADIAN PRESS Quebec reported seven traf- fic fatalities Wednesday the highest number across Canada for the first four days of Safe Driving Week. Wednesday's total of 14 fatalities also the highest national total so far this week brings the four day count to 30. Last year, 76 persons died on Canadian roads during the seven day period.

Thickwood Heights, on a hill overlooking the Athabasca River, is the largest subdivi- sion and could eventually ac- commodate people in single-family and multi- family homes as well as trailers. AFTER MORE UNITS Athabasca Realty now it, completing 706 housing units for employees of GCOS in the area, and Northward Develop- ment Ltd. is working on an initial Syncrude development of 500 units. The rest of the area is being developed by the Alberta Housing Corp. (AHC) The south end of Beacon Hill was carved out of a gravel pit, and its mobile- home stalls are barren of veg- etation. However, on the north end a lush growth of aspens surrounds the cedar-shingled bungalows. Gregoire Mobile Home Park is a flat, dusty arrange- ment of 'mobile when it's wagonspoke style. It was a former vocational training ground and will be landscaped by AHC, said a corporation official. Immediately to the south of the trailer park is the Fort McMurray dump. Howeer, the official said it will be closed and a new dump established with a 600-foot buffer zone. "It appears that the supply of mobile, modular and pre- fabricated homes from the factory to Fort McMurray could meet the demand" in the next two years, says the Fort McMurray housing needs study report, completed under the auspices of the AHC. The report explains that there is a demand backlog for 279 single-family and mobile- home lots, with an additional units needed by August, 1975. However, the report says more than units will be on stream by fall, 1975, and its figures indicate that a shor- tage of earnings is a bigger problem than a shortage of housing. Prefabricated homes, in- cluding a lot, were priced be- tween and the average price of a mobile home was and luxury homes in the Beacon Hill sub- division were to cost to The report says the min- imum annual income needed to buy a single-family home- not considering the sizeable down payment required on compared with a minimum income of to buy a mobile home and to rent an apart- ment The average income of gov- ernment workers was cited at in the service in- dustry it was among industrial park employees it was Employees of the oil sands plants earned average of at GCOS. About 18 6 per cent of serv- ice employees, 11.2 per cent of government employees, 20 per cent of area six (industrial and commercial park) employees and four per cent of GCOS and Catalytic em- ployees cannot afford to live in individual housing, says the report. Dave Russell, municipal af- fairs minister, told reporters that 65-foot by 110-foot lots in Fort McMurray sold for in 1973, in 1974 and could rise to "in line with costs in the rest of the province The minister said the Al- berta Housing Corp. is "vir- tually rebuilding the face of Alberta up and the community of could rise to or with ex- panded oil-sands activity.
