C6945 OTTAWA (CP) Tem- porary federal public servants who feel they are unjustly deprived of benefits because of departmental hiring prac- tices may soon find solace in a study being prepared by the Public Service Commission. The report may clear up the confused variety of staffing procedures used when ad- ministrators turn to extra help. Of particular concern both to public service unions and government officials are reports that many temporary employees are losing out on lawful fringe benefits such as paid sick leave and vacation pay. One traditional method of skirting fringe payments has been to lay off temporary workers before they acquire additional be fits under collec- tive agreements. Some ad- ministrators rehire them later to the same position for another few weeks or months. Although the practice has decreased in recent years, both union and government of- ficials concede it still exists. But it seems unlikely, with union surveillance of the public service, that any case similar to that of a Vancouver man several years ago will be repeated. The man had worked for 17 years with the public service, with periodic layoffs, but re- ceived no fringe benefits. It was not until the employee died and his wife found herself without a pension that the case came to light, said William Doherty, a vice- president of the mernber Public Service Alliance of Canada One difficulty facing government researchers is that the number of persons deprived of benefits in this way is uncertain, a govern- ment spokesman says. "We just don't know how many cases there are like this. It is probably in the order of thousands, but whether it is one thousand, two or three, we don't Latest published figures for the federal public service Interpreting the News Oil-consuming nations lack faith in parley By BUD JORGENSEN Canadian Press Staff Writer President Nixon's grand plans for a conference of major oil-consuming coun- tries may turn out to be an inconclusive affair with' participants more eager to watch the back door so they can slip out and resume neg- otiations on private deals with the Arab states. The suggestion that the oil consumers can and will be ready to form an alliance against the pi ice-boosting solidarity of the oil producers appears to be largely a political ideal which must be matched against the hard- headed realism of fuel-hungry countries as they scramble to sell anything from food to arms in exchange for oil. Herman Kahn, the "think- tank" expert of the Hudson In- stitute who has made a career of predicting economic developments, says he expects the oil weapon to lose its potency as producer states are courted into making separate deals. UNITY QUESTIONED Kahn may be right but cur- rent developments suggest the Arab states still wield great power to persuade consumer countries to change foreign policies in return for assurance on oil supplies. There appears to be little prospect of the industrial countries forming a strongly united club to gang up on the small but oil-rich Middle East states. Instead, in desperate need of oil, individual countries appear likely to settle for short-term security and give less thought to the need for multilateral cooperation on long-term security and prosperity. Two British cabinet ministers will try to persuade the Shah of Iran to exchange oil for British steel, cement, rubber, paper or whatever else the shah may want. French Foreign Minister Michel Jobert is offering the Middle East arms for oil. West Germany is offering a complete refinery to Iran. Italy is also on the road in the Middle East and so is Japan In effect, it is every man for himself. This scramble is of particular concern to the United States which long has maintained its leadership over the West. Its Middle East policy is based on firm support of Israel. But many Western countries slipped away from endorsing the American viewpoint just as soon as the spectre of oil cut- offs loomed. POLICY FRAGMENTED Japan was a major example of how the supposed solidarity of American foreign policy be- came fragmented. From an expression of sympathy for Israel the Japanese government quickly switched to a call for Israel to vacate lands it had captured from the Arabs in the 1967 war. Undoubtedly Nixon may hope that the Washington conference of oil consumers next month can produce a concerted pricing policy and reassert the importance of American leadership on the Middle East issue. The need of assured oil sup- plies is vital to the industrial countries but the big jump in Arab oil prices is also of major importance.

Special thanks to my family, friends, and neighbors, for the lovely flowers, cards, visits, and phone calls. Your thought- fulness was appreciated very much. Kesler 7630 problems may be solved MINOT, N.D. (AP) The U.S. bureau of reclamation appears to have come to grips with two of the more controversial aspects of the Garrison diversion project keeping rough fish out and maintaining the water quality standards in rivers flowing into Canada. Partial solutions to these problems are found in a 600 page environmental impact statement on the project. The bureau says it is making tests on a model fish screen proposed to be installed in an attempt to keep rough fish out of the Souris, Red and Sheyenne rivers. With correct operation and maintenance, the screen "is expected to be 100 per cent effective in removing all fish and eggs from the canal flows entering the Lonetree Reservoir." Regarding the salinity of water flowing into Canada, the statement says if Canada is not willing to accept return flows from irrigation, alternatives are available. One plan would be to collect most of the irrigation return flows from the Souris area in a reservoir on Deep River and convey them into Devils Lake to help stabilize waters there. The bureau of reclamation has also removed acres from irrigation in the Souris Valley which had a further high salinity quality. The impact statement also proposes an alternative which would stage the irrigation development in the Souris River basin, allowing time between stages to properly monitor the salinity factor. Family in British Columbia exhibits rare mental disease By PETER MICHAELSON MONTREAL (CP) A hitherto unknown mental dis- ease that is hereditary and might be caused by an amino acid deficiency has been dis- covered among a British Columbia family, the annual meeting of the Society for Clinical Investigation was told. A total of six persons in three generations of the fami- ly developed the disease in their late forties and died of respiratory failure within five or six years, said Dr. Thomas L. Perry, a professor of phar- macology at the University of British Columbia who was one of several researchers study- ing the cases. The disease had not been documented previously and is probably rare, said Dr. Perry. However, it might "have been plaguing mankind since Adam and Eve." Concentrations of taurinc, a common amino acid, were low in the blood and cerebrospinal fluid of the last of the six per- sons to die, the only one who had sophisticated blood tests taken. Dr. Perry told a news conference. It suggested some mental disorders might be biological. SHORT OF AMINO ACID He was involved in research of Huntington's chorea, another menUI disorder, and had found that persons with the disease had another type of amino acid deficiency. Mental health specialists should begin looking more closely for biological difi- ciencies in their patients, he said. For instance, psy- chiatrists with patients who have severe mental depressions and a family history of mental disease should take blood tests for taurine deficiency. The six victims of the dis- ease lived happy, normal lives until the illness struck them in their late forties. Two spent time in mental hospitals while all were treated unsuccessful- ly with anti-depressant drugs, psychoanalysis and other methods. proposal by the U.S. that would help moderate prices would be highly attractive to consumer countries. But consumer countries are not waiting to see what the U.S. can produce. They are scrambling for oil and even working against each other to get the best deal possible. Recriminations over the' rush to make separate deals may surface when the governments gather to make decisions on other major issues, such as monetary reform and trade lib- eralization. The quarrels may add to the problems and threats of further national economic weaknesses. show that last June there were employees of departments and departmen- tal corporations and another workers for govern- ment agencies and pro- prietary corporations such as Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd., Air Canada and the Bank of Canada. Of the departmental employees, were counted as "casuals and others" by Statistics Canada. The casuals include persons hired for specified terms of six months or longer and "those employed on a casual basis or for a temporary period not exceeding six months." The "others" are full-time employees not categorized in six other groups, says Statistics Canada. NEED SIX MONTHS Under federal rules, employees appointed for six months or longer qualify for benefits under one of the 80 collective agreements signed between treasury board and public service unions. The advent of collective bargaining in the public ser- vice in 1967 and various treasury board directives have discouraged abuses and apparently protected many temporary employees from fringe benefit losses. The directive says that peo- ple working on a casual or temporary basis should be allowed to acquire employee status under collective agreements provided there is a continuing need for their services Breaking employment periodically to deprive employees of rights otherwise given is inappropriate, the directive said. It asked employing administrators to determine the likely duration of work before appointments are made so that people will not be denied their rights.
