Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 15, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 28 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wfdnwdiy, January 15, 1975 Gov't employment plan in 'developmental' stage OTTAWA (CP) Nearly two years after it was first employment strategy has reacheil what federal conceived as a solution to the spokesmen call the develop- problems of the hardcore menial phase, unemployed, the government's community A recent agreement be- tween Ottawa and British Co- lumbia for pilot projects in Kamloops and Nanaimo is the first step toward implementa- tion of the plan proposed in iro. Ivo Krupka, director of the program, says the govern- ment hopes to have agreements with the other provinces and territories by mid-February. Job seekers who hope the program will provide them with work immediately will discover that the plan is not a glorified employment service. Rather the substitution of the word "strategy" for the original "program" in its name could indicate a less direct approach to hardcore unemployment problems than initially intended. A1973 social security paper, which proposed an overhaul of the welfare system, suggested that a community employ- ment program provide social- ly useful work for the chronically unemployed. Since then, the chief goals of the program have shifted to research, evaluation and data collection on such groups as single parents, native people and the physically and men- tally handicapped. But there is some flexibility in the program. Mr. Krupka says that some of-the mil- lion intended for the experi- ment in the next three years could go into such federal programs as manpower not being used by the communities selected for the pilot proj- ects. Mr. Krupka said B.C. aggressively pursued the program and so was the first province ready for the ex- periment. Under the program, in com- rnunities where test projects St. N. has been named a member of the Order of Can- are to be carried out, federal ada for his inventions 40 years ago to aid the sugar beet industry and other farm operations. Mr. Briosi, 63, manager of the Bridge Valley Golf Club, will travel to Ottawa in the spring to attend his investiture by the governor general. Tax evasion case back in court to be spent in the next three years is earmarked for ex- penditure before the end of March. The strategy, Mr. Krupka says, is basically an attempt to find new ways of opening up jobs for the hardcore jobless. "It is not our impression that a lot of people are out of work for long periods of time but there are a lot who go from lousy job to lousy job us- ing unemployment insurance or welfare in he says. Mr. Krupka said the problems of finding work do not always lie solely with the individual but also with the labor market. In some cases, employers might be convinc- ed to ease their standards and job qualifications so the jobless can find work. "The range of problems is broad and the range of solutions is broad also. One single program won't do the job." In the community, Mr. Krupka says, there will be a federal-provincial working group to oversee operation of the program. That group could be on contract or a part of the existing government structure. CALGARY (CP) After more than a year of court proceedings, the income tax evasion case against Calgary lawyer Neil German, a former president of the Cana- dian Chamber of Commerce, is right back where it started. A decision of the Alberta Supreme Court appellate division, released Tuesday, returned the case back to the provincial court level where it began in November, 1973. The decision upheld an appeal by the federal income in a court trial, said Mr. Justice A. F. Moir of the appellate division. He also spoke for Mr. Justices C. W. Clement and W. R. Sinclair. In the German case, however, the certificate has never been introduced as evidence because the case has never come to trial in provin- cial court, pending the out- come of the higher court proceedings. In its judgment, the appellate division also dis- missed a cross appeal by Mr. Solzhenitsyn says dissidents silenced Ladies Wed. Afternoon D.B.C. Dec. 18 1. Louine Smith, Irma Shaw; 2.

There are about 20 separate projects planned and about million of the total million ZURICH (APJ-Alexander Solzhenitsyn charged today that Soviet authorities have embarked on a neo-Stalinist strategy aimed at cutting the links of all dissidents with the outside world. The exiled Nobel prize-win- ning writer said the new ap- proach was evidence of a "basic change" in the Soviet Union following the Vladivostok meeting between Communist party chief Leonid Brezhnev and U.S. President Ford. Solzhenitsyn said all corre- spondence between dissidents and contacts abroad had been stopped, dissidents can no longer make international telephone calls, and calls reaching them from abroad were jammed. "In addition, people who ar- rive from Soviet provinces say that Soviet citizens who had friendly conversations with foreigners, during ex- hibitions, were beaten up on the spot so that the public was drawing a he said in a letter to the Zurich newspaper Neue Zuercher Zeitung. Solzhenitsyn said the change appeared to be connected with the replace- ment of Pyotr Demichev as the Communist party central committee's secretary for agitation and propaganda. His appointment as minister of culture was "the admission of failure of a strategy" which for a decade included a "quarter opening" in the campaign against dissidents, the author said. tax department to have four German seeking to quash the counts against Mr. German reinstated, after he fought to have them quashed last March. As a result of the ruling, Mr. German again faces one count of tax evasion and five counts of making false tax returns. He is also charged jointly with Medicine Hat Greenhouses Ltd. with one further count of tax evasion. He was an officer of that company. Mr. German fought the charges on grounds that the provincial judge before whom the informations were first sworn had no jurisdiction to deal with them. Most of the charges dealt with a time period prior to a five year limitation period on summary conviction on in- come tax offences, he said. He also charged that the infor- mations against him were im- properly worded. Chief Justice J. V. H. Mil- vain of the trial division quashed four counts because remaining charges against him. Mr. German is charged with evasion of taxes on of income between Dec. 31, 1964 and March 13, 1970, and making false income tax returns by failing to declare income of a total of for five successive income tax years.
