Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 13, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Youth hostel business slackening Drifting throngs ot restless teen-agers that swelled youth hostels in summers past and turned public buildings and fields into emergency have largely dis- appeared this year. Most youth hostels across Canada are operating below capacity this summer and there are fewer signs of the youth migration that was heralded by some as a sympton of social upheaval. In a cross-Canada survey by The Canadian some youth hostel operators say the decline is due to summer work programs and government grants that keep young people occupied. Others say publicity about hitch-hiking woes and perils have slowed the trend. Still others say wandering has become unfashionable because of anti-youth backlash that associated teen- age rovers with the drug culture. Douglas presi- dent of the Canadian Youth Hostel Association says hosteling is in decline among Canadian youth and most lodging provided by his association is used by young Europeans who now are more affluent. About 60 CYHA hostels are in operation across Canada and 90 per cent of the oc- cupants are from foreign travelling under the auspices of the International Federation of Youth of which the CYHA is a member. The CYHA has about Canadian members who pay a subscribers' fee to take advantage of the international travel and lodging facilities that result from membership. The survey shows about 125 hostels operating under the federal state secretary's department at a cost of about million this year.

But Mr. McLaren said there is a trend to under use federal facilities while their costs are increasing. In British the number of federal hostels has been reduced to 25 from 29 last but government employees operating them are hoping for an increase in the number of users which totall- ed about last year. In the number of federal hostels is down to 20 this year from 25 last said Gabriel provin- cial co-ordinator. DEPARTMENT DECIDED In Brian director of the federal said the department decided last year to enforce a minimum fee of 50 cents a night at the hostels because most of the users were middle-class youth who could afford to pay. we we said people who can pay. Peo- ple who can't pay that's cool. after a couple of year's we can see that the hostels aren't being used by down-on-their-luck- type Costs this year range from the minimum 50 cents to about a night. FACILITIES USED In federal hostel officials reported good usage last year with about customers in Winnipeg and about in Brandon. Hostel facilities also are provided in Winnipeg by the Salvation Army and the YWCA. In three gov- ernment-sponsored hostels are operating this each with about 100 beds at costs ranging between 50 cents and a night. About customers are expected this the same as last a spokesman said. But in a church offi- cial who sponsored hostels there last summer said religious groups are scaling down their hostel activities because qf the drop in users. Youth Minister Horst Schmid of Alberta announced earlier this year that the provincial government had made plans to enter the hostel with an allocation of for a Calgary facility. threat ignored ANKARA Premier Bulent Ecevit reiterated Fri- day his government's deter- mination to resume poppy cultivation this fall despite a United States Senate vote Thursday threatening to cut off military and economic aid to Turkey.
