Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 9, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, December 9, 1970 - THE lETHBRIDGE HERALD - 31 BOMBAY (CP)-Each weelund hundreds of students from Bombay, Calcutta, Madras and other Indian citiets go to nearby villages for a spell of constructive work. The young men and women have a two-fold objective. Tliey want to contribute their bit to the modernization of rural India where most of the 500,000 villages are still steeped in poverty and super-stitlon. They are also anxious to project a new image of the student community. Youth organizations in many Indian cities are disturbed by the growing indiscipline in schools and colleges. According to one newspaper report, tiere were 200 college striltc in tJie last eight months. But a non-official survey recently completed shows that more than 70 per cent of Indian student'; are only interested in studies anr* not in making trouble. Students from two Bombay colleges have in recent weeks helped to construct an ap-Itroach road to a village and raise a cono- ^te school building where there was only a mud hut before. Another Bombay group is helping in the construction of a hostel for mentally retarded children. Students from several Bombay nigh schools have also taken part in the rehabilitati  of the Koyna area, 200 miles from here, which was ravaged by a disastrous -thquake two years ago. In the south Indian city of Madras, known for its long tradition of university education alo"'- Western lines, students are active in the medical f.teld. Two medical colleges ha e organized weekend "campc" for constructive work in t' countryside. The Madras students are working in several villages, attending to the basic medical needs of village... One group consisting of women students has taught 200 village women Doctors may dial for information how to bring up their children on nutrition-r ch food prepared from locally available resources. Reports reaching the ministry of education in New Delhi show that constructive activities by students have become SASKATOON (CP) - For Saskatchewan doctors, information on new techniques and treatments now is only as far away as their telephones. The University of Saskatchewan has started a program which allows doctors throu^out the province to dial a number and listen to short, taped lectures on a variety of medical topics. The program, called Dial Access, is believed to be the first of its type in Canada, although the idea originated at the University of Wisconsin five years ago. Many Saskatchewan doctors still work in rural areas, and have fewer opportunities to keep abreast of developments in medicine than their city colleagues. Through Dial Access they can telephone collect to depots in Regina and Saskatoon where answering services play tapes on request. Each doctor has been provided with a catalogue of tapes available. Dial Access began operating last spring, and Donna Souster, its project assistant, said it will cost more than $10,M0 this year, including about $150 a month for long distance calls. The Saskatoon depot has been receiving between five and seven calls a day and Regina about five. Tlie service is available 24 hours a day. �nie program library consists of about 300 tapes purcliased from the University of Wisconsin, but the University of Saskatchewan has added 17 of its own. "Some of the Wisconsin tapes are not relative to practice here," said Mrs. Souster. "We hope lo add about 10 of our own tapes each month and we hope to get an all-Saskatchawan library." The tapes are five to six minutes long and are produced si)ecialists from the university community and private practice. Each year tapes made by Saskatchewan doctors will be returned for any necessary revisions. TOPICS ARE WIDE Topics range from diagnosis end treatment of rabies to care of Rh. negative mothers. Some doctors use the service for review "just ns they read journals." "About five per cent of tlie physician population arc using the service regularly now. We are hoping to get medical stu dents to use it. They are the ones who will continue to use it in the future." Mrs. Souster also said the Dial Access project sbiws promise in nursing, law and pharmacy, but it could be some time l)efore tapes are provided for these fields. POLLUTION LIST VICTORIA (CP) - Tlie provincial pollution control branch has asked all residents of British Columbia to complete forms for registration of all types of water and land pollution. Individuals, companies and local and provincial government branches have been given until Dec. 31 to provide the information Students a rcg"lar feature university life in at least 30 urban centres. C senior official estimates that nearly 20,000 youths are involved in what he calls "the brighter side of our national life." Even in the chronically trouble-lnfestc! Hindu University at Benares, many of the students s;cm to be anxious to �'o something other than assaulting professors, breaking up furniture and promoting the cause of "people's revolution." At a Benares rally attended by SOO students a resolution was passed saying that "wc wish to be known by our constructive 'Wk and not by our aberrations." T: > group has plans to organize a literacy campaign in nearby villages. Federal Education Minister Vijayendra Rao ' hoping that some of f � long-delryed constructive spirit may even touch the great metropolis of Calcutta ' Jch has become a stronghold of Maoist sti:dents. Rao b's asked university vice-chancellors in Calcutta and other parts of West Bengal province to start a "dialogue" with the students in oitler to persuade them to take up constructive work. Perhaps the most interesting of tlie developments in this connection is being witnessed in Bombay. A group of Bombay students has formed an organization to promote "better understanding" te-tween students and their parents. Called the Students For Discipline movement, it wants youths to obey their parents, respect tVieir teachers and "do everything possible to correct the impression that Indian students are only interested hi destroying themselves and their country." As evidence of their new spirit, members of SFD spent several hours recently scrubbing the streets o* south Bombay. VICTORIA (CP) - Something called creative job search technique, invented by an official o( the Oregon slate bureau of labor, has met with remarkable success here in helping individuals to find jobs on their own. It consists of two weekly sessions, each an hour and a half long. At the first, histructor Doug Year wood names the t>ources of lalwr in the city, wliat the turnover is, and gives an explanation of how the job market works. The assignment for the second session is to answer six questions in detail: what things has the individual done successfully; has been commended for; former jobs; what kind of equipment he can operate; likes and dislikes. "These are all positive questions. By answering them fully you will gain personal insights into yourself that you may never have realized, or have forgotten. This will take 10 to 25 hours to complete. "Once completed, a positive mosaic of yourself emerges. From this you can prepare a resume at the next session." At the next session, Mr. Year-wood tells the group that "starting tomorrow morning you should start job-hunting on an eight-hours-a-day basis." If you are prepared to work eight hours a day for an employer, you should be willing to do it for yourself." NOT AI-L ADVERTISED Ky Silvest, an original member of the Victoria group, tells each new group that the British Columbia civil service, as one example of e m p 1 o y e r s, has 24.000 people in a wide range of jobs. "In 1968 the annual turnover was just over 1!) per cent. This means 5,000 jobs were open. Not all were advertised, but they were posted. All you have to do is take the trouble to find out what's available and then make your approach using your resume." Since 1962, when the program first started in Portland, Ore., 20,000 persons from 15 to 80 have completed the program there. "Follow-up shows 80 per cent who completed the sessions found work within seven days to three weeks," Mr. Yearwood said. "Professional people may take up to three months and may have to go further afield, but the over-all success rate is 80 per cent." Since it began In Victoria a year ago, about 250 people have gone through the program. Data on the first 100 indicated a 73-per-ccnt success rate. Manpower department offi- cials consider the statistics especially encouraging, considering that the unemployment rate in Victoria last winter was 11 per cent. L. S. McGill, Manpower's Pacific region director, said: "We arc extremely pleased with the results of the creative job search technique program, based on the current data. Wo want to expand the program and we will work toward this goal." AT B & E HARDWARE 414-416 13th ST. N-PHONE 328-3541 or 328-3545 THIS THURS. FRI. AND SAT.
