(CP) Urban problems aren't just for big cities. This eastern Ontario city of 45.000 has them all: transit deficits, urban sprawl and pol- lution. It has high unemployment caused by a changing eco- nomic base, ft even has the classic: a deteriorating down- town core. When people in Toronto or Montreal think of mass transit, they think of subways, declining passenger totals and deficits. But in most cities, mass transit means buses, as it does in Cornwall. And these smaller cities have been un- able to escape the declining passenger totals and deficits that have plagued the larger systems. In 1969, the Cornwall Street Railwny light and Power Co. Ltd. carried about 2.25 million passengers. In 1970, that num- ber decreased to about 1.93 million, a decline of more than 14 per cent. In the face of this decline and increasing deficits, the company decided to reduce service generally and sell its trolley buses. At the first of this year, the com- pany got out of the transit business altogether, and the city awarded the franchise to another carrier. SPRAWL EVIDENT For a small city. Cornwall sprawls, especially in the an- nexed west end. Where Highway 2 enters town, motels and other enter- prises have built up along the road. Because development is spread out, this land is costly to service, hut that hasn't slopped an ugly proliferation of service stations, ham- bui per stands and other busi- nesses. It is a classic urban prob- lem, but on a small scale, and partly because of this, isn't considered a problem here. A more immediate concern is pollution, especially air pollu- tion. The Domtar Fine Papers Ltd. mill has been the source of annoying odors, but the company has reccnlly an- nounced a five-year, S5 mil- lion clean-up, during which it will spend million to clean up the air and S3 million for cleaner water. Domtar, with more than jobs and an annual payroll in excess of S12.5 million, thus will spend slightly more than for every man, woman and child in the city during its cam- paign. The changing economic base has been one of the toughest problems to solve, and solutions are still a-mak- ing. WOOL CAME FIRST Woollen mills, the first major industry, were estab- lished during the 1860s. In 1870, the manufacture of cot- ton was started, and it was bere that Thomas Edison in- stalled his first plant for light- ing by electricity. The produc- tion of paper was begun in 1883 and another textile mill opened in 1923. Gandhi raps western powers LONDON (Renter) Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi was quoted today as saying she thinks there mil he other erup- tions in i; Western countries fail to help the Ben- gali independence movement in East Pakistan. She was asked in an interview with John Pilger of the mass- circulation Daily Mirror what British people should do to help victims of the civil war. They are .unsure that their gifts are actually reaching people, Pilger told her. Mrs. Gandhi replied that charity was not the answer. The governments of the West simply did not take the long-term view. For example, they think t'.iat Pfkistan can be preserved by not helping Bangla Desh, "but we think it can't be preserved." She said the East Bangalia have been treated with con- tempt in their own country for so long, and who had noticed? If this is allowed to continue, she had no doubt that there will be eruptions in other parts of Paki- stan. But competition from abroad brought hard times U the textile industry. The area economy lagged. Then cami the St. Lawrence the second time. The first time was in 1843 when the Cornwall canal was opened, enabling shipping to bypass the Long Sault rapids That led to an economic boom and residents expected the second seaway to do the same. "People expected every thing to keep going the way i was when the seaway was being says a business man. "People moved here be cause of the construction jobs but it takes a hell of a lo more men to build a hydro- electric dam than it does to run it." DREDGING NEEDED Now, more than decade later, things are looking up. The seaway was built to a depth of 27 feet. Cornwall ha; one useable wharf, but the channel to it from the main seaway i; 01 the United States side of the river at this 22 fee deep. So ships bypass the city But the one wharf is to be improved and the channel to it dredged to 27 feet tin's year so any ship on the seaway wil be able to put into Cornwal economically. There is news of a major American company planning to locate here.

"But in the long run, the abil- ity of the city to provide good land at a reasonable price, plus our location on the sea- way and Highway 401 near Montreal and Ottawa are going to make us difficult to ignore. "The long-range prospects are excellent." But the squeeze is still on, and city council has had to examine its priorities care- fully. It is maintaining a pro- gram of sanitary trunk sewer construction, and a program to keep storm and sanitary sewers ahead of in preference to local residen- tial street construction. In a recent public state- ment, Mayor Kick Kaneb warned that council "must be very careful with our budget- ary monies for the coming How bad is the city's plight? Figures are difficult to pin down, but most say that between 17 and 20 per cent of the labor force is unemployed. SHOPS EMPTY Right now, the plan for a new downtown shopping mall seems a bit premature because there are empty shops on Pitt Street street. But it is seen as one way to revitalize the down- town core. A haberdasher on Pitt waves a hand around his store. "I used to have as much stock stored in my basement as I had on display up here. Now my basement is empty. You can see my entire stock here, and it's not moving." Across the street are three storefronts within half a block, all with "for rent" signs in the windows. They are scattered up and down Pitt: Windows with "for rent" signs, or just empty windows. BOOST MALL The suburban malls have hurt somewhat, but there are empty stores in them, too. Pesseimists are easy to find, but if one looks there are opti- mists, too, who boost plans for the downtown mall and a pro- posed waterfront park devel- opment. They are optimists like the banker; "Everyone is so damned quick to knock the he says. "What we need are more people who can see its prospects. I've lived in a lot of towns, and I'd be pretty, unhappy, and so would my family, if I had to move. I'd like to be here long enough to retire." Youth column Studei Is set up own job office SASKATOON (CP) Univer- sity of Saskatchewan students, unhappy over the number of their group unable to find jobs last summer, have established their own employment office. Dave Erickson, president of the Saskatoon campus Students' Union, says the results of a stu- dent survey show Canada Man- power has not been effective in Snding summer work for stu- dents. "On campus, Manpower serv- ices provided only six per cent of the student he says. "And off campus, Manpower found a further 5.5 per cent. "Surely we should expect bet- r service than this from the federal government." The survey, sponsored by the union and the Saskatchewan As- sociation of Students, showed that 77 per cent of stu- dents, or 40 per cent of the Sas- catoon student population, did [ind work during the summer. But more than 30 per cent of these students would have liked :o work a month or more longer than they did. SAVINGS WERE SLIM The average number of weeks worked was 12, out of a possible 18. About 50 per cent of the stu- dents surveyed said they saved ess than last summer and ry Brown, association presi- dent, says this is because the jobs students did find were not well-paying ones. The average monthly salary shown by the survey was Mr. Erickson says 50 per cent of undergraduates on campus had been forced to apply for student loans to pay for the cur- rent scliool year. This indicates that a bursary scheme, based on need and ability, must be in- stituted by the fall. A director for the student em- ployment office went on the job in late winter. He will be re- sponsible for creating, in con- sultation with the union, a pub- lic relations program aimed at locating and creating student employment. CNR plans layoffs MONTREAL (CP) Cana- dian National Railways an- nounced here it will lay off 204 employees at the com- pany's three main shops be- cause of a slackening in antici- pated traffic and revenues. The company said it will lay off 97 men at Montreal's Pointe St. Charles shops, 64 at the Transcona shops near Winni- peg and 43 men at Moncton. N.B. The layoffs will begin follow- ing the shops' three-week close- down beginning July 16. CN said the men will receive four weeks' pay after the date of notice. About 150 of the employees involved were hired last year for a temporary program. HURLBURT AUCTION SERVICE ITD.
