Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 17, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 6Age prejudice not a barrier for workers' EDMONTON (CP) - The additional costs in fringe benefits of employing older people are minimal and should not be considered a barrier,, the Chamber of Commerce was told this week. Peter Schopflocher, corporate personnel manager with GWG Ltd., said the percentage of unemployed workers between 45 and 65 is increasing, but added that there is no justification for prejudice against people because of their age. Older employees are generally more reliable, stable workers less likely to be absent or b?.ve accidents and bring to the job the assets of experience and understanding. Mr. Schopflocher said fringe benefits, which usually amount to 25 to 30 per cent of the total wage bill, are not greatly altered for the older worker, The only additional costs which would be slightly higher for this group are group insurance plans and unit benefit pension plans. On other types of pension plans, where employer contributions are tied directly to employee contributions, there is no cost difference. "Even on the unit benefit plans, I would estimate that difference in cost between hiring a man of 50 and to one of 30 would not be more than 10 per cent on his total wage-fringe benefit bill."

APPLY: GOVERNMENT OF ALBERTA Personnel Administration Office 500 Terrace Building 106 Street and 96 Avenue Edmonton, Alberta Hobbies, exercise helped Viet PoWs NEW YORK (AP) - Why do most of" the returning United States prisoners of war look so fit and alert after spending months or years in Vietnamese prison camps? The men give several reasons. There were exercise programs for their bodies and classes for their minds, and some of the prisoners took up hobbies. One man used his spare time to fashion brooms, another carved wooden, bar bells. Navy Capt. James A. Mulligan, 46, of Virginia Beach, Va., said exercise was popu lair "because we didn't have anything else to do." In the Philippines, Air Force Col: Robinson Risner, 48, of Oklahoma City, Okla., said: "We have conducted classes in many subjects. We have never let our minds go to sleep." Stranded Walter and Paul Rix of Cranston, R.I., cautiously move across Pawtuxet Village falls.

The vehicle has since been hauled ashore and returned to the garage where it was parked. CALGARY (CP) - The Alberta Emergency Measures Organization is shifting emphasis to environmental and social emergencies from wartime disaster preparations, Ernie Tyler, provincial EMO director, said here this week. "Plans for wartime disasters still have to be kept in readiness, but we have to concern ourselves more with peacetime disasters," he told the EMO's provincial convention. Convention delegates will discuss a special committee report dealing with changes in the role and function of the Alberta EMO. "The threat of nuclear conflagration doesn't turn people on right now," the report says. 'Let's emphasize our peacetime role." To improve its public image, the EMO should show "graphically and dramatically" the types of disaster that can befall a community and how the organization can and does cope with them. It also should emphasize its relationship with community organizations such as the Red Cross, the report says.
