Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 11, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta THI UTHBRIOOE HERALD Wvdntiday, July 11, 1973 B.C. gotft plans research institute VICTORIA (CP) A high- level research institute will be set up by the provincial gov- ernment at the University of Victoria by the end of this year, Resources Minister Bob Williams announced yesterday. The institute will consist of highly qualified academics and will carry out research projects assigned by the pro- vincial government, he said. The institute, to be headed by American resource econo- mist Mason Gaffney, will be funded entirely by the provin- cial government. Mr. Williams said it is in- tended that the institute staff will spend half their time on institute projects and half on research requested by various iagencies of the government. Such problem areas as land administration, resource use and methods of financing gov- ernment projects will be stud- ied. The institute will be es- tablished separate from any government department, said the minister. "The idea was to establish an independent institute that be involved in pure re- search in land and resource economic the min- ister said. "It might spread be- yond that later, but that's how it will start." The structure of the institute has not yet been decided, he added. Mr. Gaffney, a special- ist on resource economics, is to Victoria soon to ad- vise the government of how the institute should be set up, he said. The institute's financing will come from the million spe- cial fund set up this year by the NDP government for re- Williams said interest from this fund should be be- tween and per year, from which institute will be covered. The minister added that he would like to see the research fund expanded to million and will make such a recom- mendation to the cabinet be- fore the spring 1974 session of the legislature. Mr. Gaffney, 49, is a Ph.D. graduate from the University of California at Berkeley. He was head of the University of Wisconsin's school of econo- nomics and worked for the re- sources for the Future Re- search Project in Washington, B.C. PEOPLE COUNT The population of the world was estimated at million in mid-1970.

In the more isolated areas, 400 per cent is not unheard of. There is no precise estimate of how many job vacancies three now are but a special study of problems in finding adequate manpower for the B.C. forest industry is being prepared by management con- sultants P. S. Ross and Part- ners. The report, covering the en- tire province, is expected to contain recommendations to overcome the manpower short- age. It is jointly sponsored by forest industry associations, In- ternational Woodworkers of America and the federal and provincial governments. Problems in attracting work- ers to the north central and northwest interior include isola- tion, lack of adequate housing, schooling, shopping and social amenities, weather and trans- portation. ACCENTUATES PROBLEM Many executives also com- plain that the level of unem- ployment insurance benefits and the ease with which they may be obtained accentuates the turnover, particularly in the younger age groupings. Resources Minister Bob Wil- liams said the government's proposed jobs would be created over a 10-year period. He said much of the develop- ment would be keyed to com- munities along the present Ca- n a d i a n National Railways northern line and around devel- opment of sawmill and mining industries. Some new communities, how- ever, probably would have to be created, bringing with them j their own problems, since new towns are a heavy financial i burden on the industries they were built for. j In addition, older commu- nities can usually provide a bet- ter selection of shopping, schooling and social amenities. At Prince Rupert, where Co- lumbia Cellulose Co. Ltd. has been operating since there has been a 35 per cent turnover so far this year. HIRE; IN ENGLAND CoJcell officials said they have bad to go to England to cent in the Eurocan Pulp and Paper Ltd. pulp mill to 44 per cent at Alcan and that rate could reach 62 per cent. Hourly labor force at Alcan is workers. Takla Forest Products Ltd., operating its main plants at Fort St. James, northwest of Prince George, had a turnover rate of 400 per cent in its first year, 1970. Last year, the rate was 200 per cent and this year the rate is 51 per cent. No specific figures were available for mines in the prov- ince, but one official said labor turnover of up to 50 per cent annually was not unusual. Air Canada faces suit EDMONTON (CP) The Alberta Parks and.Becrea- tion Association, fuming at Air Canada over the loss of a dinosaur knuckle, is threatening to sue. The bone was being ship- ped to St. John's, Nfld., as a convention gift for the recreation association in that province. Roger Breautt of Edmon- ton said the association wants compensation for the bone and damages for per- sonal embarrassment for their convention delegate- he had to give an ad lib speech in a borrowed suit after his luggage was lost. The luggage was later found and an Air Canada spokesman said they are still looking for the bone. LONDON (AP) Opposition Labor Leader Harold Wilson called on the government today to cancel a visit to Britain by Portuguese Premier Marcello Caetano because of reports of massacres by Portuguese troops in Africa. Wilsons' call to Prime Minis- ter Edward Heath came in a statement after reports that Portuguese soldiers killed hun- dreds of African men, women and children in the Portuguese- ruled territory of Mozambique in eastern Africa. Referring to the reports based on missionary accounts and published in The Times, Wilson said: "The obscene savagery de- scribed, above treatment of babies shot in their mothers' arms and survivors kicked to death, if true, has no parallel in the scaks of genocide since the days of the Nazi "Unless the Portuguese gov- ernment can immediately and convincingly repudiate this re- port, tbe British people have Reserve board hikes amount of swap WASHINGTON (AP) The Federal Reserve Board an- nounced today ft has increased by 16.25 billion the amount of money it can obtain under so- called swap agreements to sup- port the United States dollar. The increase raises the total amount of foreign currencies available to the U.S. under the swap agreements to bil- lion. Under a swap operation, the U.S. borrows foreign curren- cies to buy up U.S. dollars in international- money markets to support the value of the dollar, which has been under attack in recent weeks. There still was no comment from the Federal Reserve Board or the treasury depart- ment on whether, the United States actually was engaging in swap operations during the current monetary crisis. But the announcement of the increased currencies avaialble to the United States under swap agreements clearly was designed to have at least a psychological impact on for- eign money operations. The United States agreed at an international monetary meeting in March 16 to intervene ia money markets in support of the dollar when it considers such action appropri- ate. the right to demand that Mr. Heath now cancels the in- vitation to Premier Caetand." British officials said the gov- ernment plans to question Cast- ano and Foreign Minister Rui Manuel Patricio, due in London next week to take part in the 600th anniversary of the Portuguese alliance. The reports from Rev. Adrian Hastings, a British Roman Catholic priest, said the mas- sacres were part of the Portu- guese government's war against Frelimo, the Mozambique Lib- eration Front, and the targets often are villages "thought to have helped" Frelimo guer- rillas. Charter airlines not affected by fuel shortage EDMONTON (CP) Short- age of aviation fuel in some American centres are not ex- pected to affect operations of two Edmonton air charter com- panies. Spokesmen for Wardah- Can- ada Ltd., and Pacific Western Airlines say that neither firm currently offers charter flights to the United States mainland, where short supplies of avia- tion fuel at some airports nave forced at least one major do- mestic airihie into strict con- servation measures. Wardair now flies mainly to overseas destinations, where the company is covered by blanket fuel supply contracts. Flights to the U.S. are not ex- pected to resume until fall and winter when schedules should thin out, easing the drain on fuel supplies, Mr. Spalding said. Harry Herbert, public 'rela- tions officer for Pacific .West- ern, also said the company now concentrates 'on overseas flights and that when its U.S. service resumes, Pacific West- ern foresees no problem in ob- taining fuel for the limited number of flights offered. 3 KILLED N STORM MEXICO CTIY (Reuter) Threa persons were killed Wednesday in a storm that caused flooding and cut off the city of Leon, 187 miles north- west of Mexico City, from the rest of the country, police said.
