(1972: By The Chicago Tribune) mil for yout OTTAWA (CP) The federal government will spend million this summer on programs "to encourage creative and useful student employment and activities." The announcement by Stale Secretary Gerard Pelletier said the spending is expected to create several thousand more paid jobs and activities than the last year. At the same time, Manpower Minister Otto Lang announced that about 1.3 million university, community college and high school students mil enter the labor force this summer, an increase of more than from last summer. Increased government and private efforts to provide jobs for students would be needed. The government again would cooperate with the Canadian Chamber of Commerce in a campaign to provide jobs. Last year private employers hired 85 per cent of all students who found jobs. Mr. Pelletier said student programs will be run by his own department, the m a n p o w e r, health and welfare and defence departments, and the earr h progri service commission, hiring body for federal jobs. MORE OPPORTUNITIES The budget for the Opportunities for Youth program is being raised to near 134 million from last year's million and is expected to provide paid jobs. Once again youths are beiag asked to seek funds for "socially-beneficial" projects. Next big spender will be the public service commission, which has (28.2 million allocated to provide paid jobs, ranging from manual labor 1o career-linked jobs. The defence department bad million budgeted to pay reserve summer trainees and summer cadet trainees. Defence will also provide million for civilian training jobs for youth. Other programs: Language training, million for about students; group travel, fl.8 million for BOO paid jobs; Canada Manpower Centres for students, million for 632 paid jobs; International student summer exchange program, for students to be paid for work by host countries with Canada paying im costs; street agency and drug research, for 475 paid jobs; grants to student athletes, million for 800 grants. The only new program this year will provide to help students get paid jobs with companies in areas away from the student's Fables Andy sends a complete 20-volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Wendy Hul-sey, age 8, of Smyrna, Georgia, for her question: Who wrote Aesop's Fables? Kind manners make everybody feel warm and friendly. Sensible people always try to be polite. This is courtesy. Sensible people also try to tell the truth. Sometimes it seems hard ID do, but it always works out for the best. This is honesty. It takes a long, long tune to leam why courtesy and honesty are such good ideas. You also need a tot of practice. But when at last you understand how they work, you get a very grand and comfortable feeling. There were a lot of sensible people around, even years ago. They wanted to be polite and truthful, but often these two good ideas did not go together. In those days a king could do whatever he liked. Suppose someone tried to tell a cruel king that he scared his people out of their heads. The truth would make him furious. He might throw the person in a dungeon or order the guard to chop off his head. So in those days, it was risky to speak the truth, even politely. But in Greece there lived a man who solved this tricky problem. His name was Aesop Aesop did not win a beauty contest or get to be a star athlete. This dumpy tittle man had crooked legs and a crooked face. Besides, he was a slave, though later his master set him Aesop knew that the may make people angry or ashamed. So he found a way to point out their mistakes aod make them laugh instead. He invented tales about animals that act like people. His animal characters did kind and cruel things, silly and sensible things just .as people do. He told how a hard v.wking ant saved food while a grasshopper played and sang all summer. Come winter, the silly grasshopper starved, but the sensible ant did not. He told how a slow poke turtle won a race with a speedy hare, who happened to be a foolish show-off. He told about a silly, greedy person who killed a goose that layed eggs of pure gold. These animal stories made everybody laugh. But they were more than just funny jokes. Bach one had a hidden message that made people think quietly about themsevles. They wondered: Can this mean me? Maybe I am a big show-off, like that silly hare. I waste my time, like that lazy grasshopper. These animal stories with secret messages are. called fables. They point out people's mistakes politely, in a funny way that does not hurt their feelings. Aesop once visited a kindly king whose people were angry and refused to obey the laws. He told these people a fable about a pond full of squabbling frogs. They blamed everything on their king and got themselves a new one. But he was a cruel ruler. The frogs kicked this king out and got another one. But he was a much more cruel meany. The people laughed at this frog fable. But later they quietly thought about the message and decided to listen to their own kindly old king. People told Aesop's fables when they wanted to point out a person's mistakes, politely. They praised his honesty and his gentle jokes. Much later they printed his stories in books. People have enjoyed Aesop's Fables through more than years. We still read them, smile and quietly wonder: Can there be a hidden message here for ME?

(Copyright Chronicle Publishing Co. 1172) Vascu not si Dear Dr. Laml> Much has been said on heart and vascular disease, yet we find the term vascular disease used in other terms of illness. Just what is vascular disease? Can it be part of arthritis? Dear Reader Correctly Speaking, vascular disease means disease of any of the arteries, veins or the small connecting vessels between the arteries and veins called capillaries. Since the vascular system of arteries, veins, and capillaries are everywhere almost any disease process can involve the vascular system. The most common form of vascular disease that causes real trouble is atherosclerosis, or fatty deposits in the arteries. This can be located anywhere in the body, causing strokes, heart attacks, poor circulation to the legs with trouble walking, kidney failure and other problems. Vascular disease technically includes varicose veins and other vein disorders. Even hemorrhoids are a vascular disease. By now you are getting the idea that the term vascular disease is not a very specific term. We use it to help us classify disorders, just like digestive diseases include indigestion, constipation and even gallbladder disease. When it is necessary to speak about something more specific, other words have to be used, like coronary artery disease to mean involve-ment of the arteries to the heart.
