Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 6, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 20-THE LETHlHIDai HERALD Wednesday, February W4 EATON'S Charges discrimination Miss Kate Joyce, a carpenter who taught wood- working at the YMCA while she was a student at the University of Pittsburgh, has filed suit is the U.S. District Court charging the Carpenter's Union with sex discrimination. She claims the western Pennsylvania all-male union discriminated against her when she was taking its apprentice tests. Most Algerians find employment in agriculture By DONAT VALOIS ALGIERS (CP) Agricul- ture, forest products and fish- ing are by tradition the main areas of employment in Al- geria. More than 60 per cent of the workers are involved in agri- culture which only contributes about 10 per cent to the gross national product. This is why the government established an agrarian re- form program in 1970 which envisages an increase in irri- gated lands, increased utili- zation of selected seed strains and modernization of fanning techniques and equipment. The agricultural sector is unable to meet the country's demands and the government must import millions of dol- lars of wheat annually, mainly from Canada. The government hopes the agrarian reform program will result in national self-suffi- ciency by 1980. As for the country's forests, they have been nearly all de- stroyed or badly damaged by war or by disease, fire or in- sect plagues. Forests cover only one per cent of the country and repre- sent only a minimal part of the Algerian gross national product. This sector is currently un- dergoing a reorganization pro- gram. Reforestation pro- grams are under way and se- vere conservation and fire prevention measures have been in effect for several years now. Canada, through the Cana- dian International Develop- ment Agency, is participating in a fire prevention program in the Annaba region as well as in an ambitious "green belt" program in the southern part of the country. This project consists of planting a forest belt 13 miles deep and about miles long, aimed at baiting the ad- vance of the Sahara desert The Algerian government undertook this program, which could span one or two generations, following studies which showed that Algeria, given the current advance rate of the desert, could dis- appear within two centuries if nothing is done Once the forest belt is built, villages will be established there. Canada also is participating in development programs in the fisheries sector, one of them being a shrimp-fishing project at El Kafe and an- vw.- fisheries tad mer- in _ Sales of oil and gas repre- sented 75 per cent of Algerian exports in 1972 and 1973 oil production is expected to reach 65 million tons, a 45-per- cent increase over 1970 production levels. The production of gas is ex- pected to rise to meet needs of France, the United Kingdom and the United States. Over the next four years, Algeria also plans to devote much effort to the transfor- mation of its mechanical, metallurgical, electrical and chemical industries, with a view to economic independ- ence by 1980. The government plans to continue to contribute 25 per cent of its budget towards education and to increase the quality of professional and technical training centres. Since 1968, Canada has con- tributed about million in various aid programs to Al- geria and Canadian products have been introduced to the Algerian market through vari- ous co-operation with the hope they will find a market when Algeria achieves economic independ- ence.
