Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 9, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta NO ASYLUM "TThree Latvian-born women, from lefts Aina, 20; her titter Lucija, 27, and mother, Mrt. Vikiorija Abolins play with their dog in New York hotel room Friday after U.S. State Department refused to grant them political asylum. The three, who say they fled their home in Winnipeg because the government of the Province of Manitoba was Communist, say they plan to renounce their Canadian citizenship rather than return. The family had emigrated to Canada 20 years ago from Latvia. Vancouver is the magnet for unemployed youth Arctic highway high on list Saturday, January 9, 1971 - THE LETHMIDOf HERALD - 25 Times are hard Film studio auction set VANCOUVER (CP) - They may have a science degree, have flunked social studies or still have trouble defining the word vocation. Their backgrounds vary from upper middle class to well below the poverty line and they live off unemployment insurance, welfare or spare change panhandled in front of a downtown department store. They are the nouveau pauvre -30,400 of them in British Columbia alone-the under-25, unemployed products of accelerated education and an affluent society which has lost control of the labor market. Idealistic young vagabonds packed their knapsacks last summer and came looking for The Good life in B.C. Faced with a jobless rate of 8.6 per cent, some ended up with a bad taste in their mouths. "B.C. has a migration problem no other part of the country faces," says Murray Perry, information services adviser for the Pacific region of the department of manpower and immigration. "Vancouver is the mecca, the magnet. Fifty-three per cent of the province's labor force lives in the metropolitan Vancouver area and when you have that many people looking for a job, it's bound to be tough." John is 22, bilingual and bitter. FUTURE UNCERTAIN He needs only two courses to complete the arts degree program he started three years ago at McGill University in Montreal. Today, he's not sure if he'll ever go back." "Al my life, I was told if 1 worked hard and stayed in school, I'd have it made," he said. "Well, the work ethic doesn't mean much when you can't get a job and all you hear is 'I'm sorry, you're over-qualified.' "Over-qualified? I'd be better off if I'd quit in high school. At least then, I could work as a swamper or a stockboy. "It nearly tore my guts out to apply for welfare. My father can't understand, he'll never understand because he's new been there." Perry says John and others with similar educational backgrounds are probably in the toughest position in a buyer's job market, especially at tbf> low end of the wage scale. "Like it or not, employers look on them as potential troublemakers," said Perry. "They have no rapport with their fellow workers because they've had the benefit of a university education and foremen see them as a threat to their own security." CONSIDERED 'SAFE' Dale would probably be considered "safe" by most industry employers-if he wanted to work. Barely, 18, he left Scarborough, Ont., last spring to get away from the "hassles . you know, parents, school, th� whole number." Since then, he's worked 17 days, most of them here-today-gone-tomorrow jobs like dor-to-door distribution of advertising flyers. He and three others rent a di lapidated house on the fringe of skid road for $55 a month. "I haven't looked for a job for six months, maybe eight. What the hell's the use? 'Took man, I get $80 a month cash from welfare. So does Eddie and the two chicks get some too. We take care of each other and nobody tells us what time we have to punch in and punch out." Dale is one of the kids Man power is trying to reach with programs such as Outreach, in conjunction with the YMCA. Sixty youths between the ages of 17 and 24 will spend six weeks this winter at Camp Howdy, the YMCA summer day camp on Indian Arm northeast of Vancouver, where Perry says "we can teach them what it is to work." SITUATION PERMANENT Dave Adair, research director for the Inner-City Service Project which among other things operates its own youth hostel, sees the current large pool of unemployed young people as a permanent situation. He cites the Economic Council of Canada's prediction that between 1965 and 1989, the labor force will expand by 48 per cent. "We know the economy can't absorb 48 per cent more than it does now. The council says again and again that unless the situation is changed drastically, there's no way these people can be absorbed. "One solution for many people who are young, poor and highly-educated is to move into the area of communes and co-ops to allow them to exist." Inner-City started with out-dor feed-ins last summer and now plans to collect and distribute information on the back-to-the-land movement-homestead-ing legislation, availability of land and government aid for co-operative farmers. OTTAWA (CP) - Construction crews will have completed the first all-weather highway into the Arctic Circle by 1974 if the hopes of the northern development department are realized. The last 450-mile road link that would allow adventurous motorists starting from Vancouver or Edmonton to drive to Inuvik, N.W.T, has been given top priority by the department. Called the Dempster Highway, this last link begins near the Dawson City cutoff of the Alaska Highway in the Yukon. "It will follow the route through the Ogilvy Mountains, across the Eagle Plains, then through the Richardson Mountains to Fort McPherson, Arctic Red River and Inuvik," said Digby Hunt, assistant deputy minister of the department. Completion of the Dempster, which will have a gravel top, is important to the department. It is believed that oil and gas pipelines could be under construction in the Inuvik area by 1974. "We hope it will be finished coincidental with some of these pipeline plans," said Mr. Hunt USED FOR SUPPLIES "The road could be used to bring in supplies for building the pipeline. We hope too it will have some benefit to residents of the Mackenzie Delta, provid ing year-round transportation tor them." Delta residents now depend heavily on barge traffic through the Mackenzie River for cheap transportation of foods and other necessities. The only al-ternative is expensive air freight. Like most roads built in the Canadian North, the Dempster is considered primarily as a development road to open up new areas for resources. 'But most of them also are planned in the long term to be roads for tourists as well," said Mr. Hunt. Of the Dempster, he says: "It's going to take you to some very, very historic and Movie column Zanuck departure ends dynasty HOLYWOOD (AP) - The departure of Richard Zanuck as president of 20th Century-Fox marked the apparent end of the' most notable dynasty in the film industry today. It also brought further erosion of family control of the movie business, which once was the most important factor in the film hierarchy. "There's nothing wrong with nepotism-as long as you keep it in the family," Samuel Gold-wyn was alleged to have once said. Goldwyn knew. He came into the film business because his first wife was the sister of Jesse La sky, a vaudevillian who started making flickers. Many another pioneer entered film-making because of relatives. Harry Cohn was brought into Universal because his brother Jack worked thsre. Later the brothers formed Columbia, which Robert Benchley termed "the pine tree studio" "because it has so many Cohns." SON BECAME HEAD Carl Laemmle, founder of Universal, filled the company with relatives and established his son Junior as production head. IMG'! employed a host of per- Jarring confers again By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The special envoy of the United Nations conferred again today with Premier Golda Meir of Israel in the renewed efforts to work out a peace settlement in the Middle East. It was Gunnar V. Jarring's second meeting with Mrs. Meir in Jerusalem. They met at a working lunch at which Israel's foreign minister, Abba Eban, was host. But as they conferred, the chief opposition party in Israel, the Gahal, sent speakers out around the country to voice the party's opposition to Israel's return to the United Nations-sponsored peace talks. The party is against Israel's giving up Arab lands captured in the 1967 Arab-Israeli war. of sons who bore the names Loew, Schenck or Mayer or were related to those founders of the company. Late in MGM's history, a production unit com' posed of company scions was formed. Studio wags referred to the unit as "sons of the pioneers." Louis B. Mayer was frustrated in Ms hopes to establish a dynasty at MGM. He had no sons. His two daughters mar-ried.David O. Selznick and William Goetz, both of whom became heads of studios. But not MGM. They declined to work for their father-in-law. WARNERS FADE The Warner brothers offered a formidable family for control of their company, yet no Warner remains in control today. Jack L. Warner, the surviving brother, became estranged from his own son. For a time Warner established his son-in-law, Wil liam Orr, as production head. But that didn't work, and War ner later sold his interest in the company. Other Warner sons-in-law were Mervyn Leroy and Milton Sperling, both important film makers. Once when Sperling produced a notable flop, a stu-dio wisecracker commented: "That'll set the son-in-law business back 10 years." With the deaths of the founding fathers and economic shakeup of the industry, relatives have been disappearing from studio payrolls. HE TOOK THE RAP The split of Richard and Dar-ryl Zanuck came as a surprise. Young Richard had been well thought of by the film crowd But Fox had made some costly errors and someone had to take the rap. Not father Darryl, who remained chairman of the board. Two major companies continue to follow the familial pattern. After the deaths of the Cohn brothers, Abe Schneider took over control of Columbia. He now is chairman of the board, and Leo Jaffe, who had been related by marriage, is president of the parent firm, Columbia In dustries. Son Stanley Schneider is president of Columbia Pictures, and son Howard Jaffe is a producer. Oddly, another Jaffe son, Stanley, is president of Paramount Pictures. The Disney 6tudio, founded by brothers Walt and Roy, still retains the family touch. Walt's son-in-law, Ron Miller, production head, and Roy Jr, a producer at the studio. It's the scenic areas in the Yukon, going to take you across Arctic Circle and it's going to take you to the shares of the Arctic Ocean. I'm sure that's going to be a magnet to many tourists." Order cuts LONDON (Reuter) - Hawker Siddeley Group Ltd., second biggest aerospace firm in Britain, ordered a cut Friday in its work force ft two aircraft factories of between 2,000 and 3,000 men. The firm blamed the layoffs on declining military orders for its Nimrod maritime reconnaissance aircraft. AMERICA'S FIRST America's first ski race was held in 1867 near La Porte, Calif. HOLLYWOOD (AP) - Got any use for the wheeled Teddy bear drawn on a string by toddler Shirley Temple in Captain January? Or the oval couch of Marilyn Monroe and Yves Mon-tand in a dream sequence of Let's Make Love? These and about 2,000 other items, including ersatz gorillas from Planet of the Apes and a gory-looking dummy head that rolled downstairsin Hush, Hush, Sweet Charlotte, will be up for auction next month. Twentieth Century-Fox i s going the route taken several months ago by another financially troubled studio, MGM, in disposing of its movie props. But less extensively. MGM sold a vast, 40-year accumulation ranging from Clark Gable's raincoat to the Showboat river steamer. Fox is clearing out only a fraction of its approximately 55,000 properties-ones that have served their purpose, can't be used again and are taking up valuable storage space. ESTIMATES TAKE Walter M. Scott, supervising set decorator, thinks the auction should bring "anywhere from a quarter of a million dollars up." MGM hasn't said how much it realized from selling its gigantic [ collection outright to an auctioneer. Trade talk is that MGM got $1.3 million and that the auctioneer sold the props and costumes to the public for somewhere between $4 million and $7 million. Fox is different, too, in that it isn't selling its goods to the auctioneer. It will retain possession until the bidder buys. The auction, Feb. 25-28, will be the first by the new West Coast house of Sotheby, Parke-Bernet Los Angeles. It's a division of Parke-Bernet Galleries in New York and an affiliate of Sotheby and co. of London. Scott, 63, a winner of six Academy Awards for set decoration-on The Robe, The King and I, The Diary of Anno Frank, Cleopatra, Fantastic Voyage and Hello, Dolly!-led a tour of a huge sound stage crammed with goods for sale. They included Tallulah Bankhead's chaise lounge in The Royal Scandal, the ornate desk used by Marlon Brando as Napoleon in Desiree and Edward G. Robinson's 1830 French bed from House of Strangers.
