Weltar By THE CANADIAN PKESS Welfare funds in many Canadian cities Ere naming shod after the first six months c] 1970. Officiate in cities (hat show a shortage of funds say higher unemployment is one of the causes. A Cross-Canada Survey by The Canadian Press gives this picture in major cilies. Vancouver's welfare budgel for this year is ami assistance payments there are expected to be as high as Officials say payments are high this year because of labcir strife and an influx of unemployed in the city. Edmonton's budget last year was exceeded by end officiate say they expect to request a supplement this year too, although the budget was raised to from "We've never had ro many applications for welfare in one official said. "This is a straight reflection rai the job market." The provincial governmait in Saskatchewan budgeted far an increese (Ms year. The aBot-ment is for 1970-71, compared to for 1969-70. POINTS TO STUDENTS In Metropolitan Toronto, John Anderson said his department handled more than welfare cases, tet compared to in June 1969. He blamed the situation on a large influx of students seeking summer jobs. "There's intense promotion of students for summer employment this year and the students are actively competing for the jobs he said. "The fact that students "are Funds In Manj the is pushing some of the marginally-employable cases, particularly family heads, on to the welfcte rolls." Mr. Anderson said his department's planned June allotment of the budgeted for 1970 WEB exceeded by one per cent and if the trend continues he will have to ask for an addi-feral by December. The federal capital has not es-CEpsd rising costs. James Sheridan, deputy commissioner ci welfare for the regional government covering Ottawa and i Canadu area said welfare spending is "higher than anticipated." His department has spent about of a budget. It should have spent less by this tame of year, Mr. Sheridan said. Spending is expected to go up in the fall and there is no stock to take up, he said. Jean Seguin, director of Montreal's social welfare department, said his city is well prepared to handle rising costs. Payments have increased in the last two years because Short an Cities unemployment situation is not as good as it used to he said. "But we have fcreseen that in our budgeting." Montreal has a budget of covering May 1970 through April 1971 and is spent each month. The city pays and the Quebec government the remainder of ths total. In the Maritimes, Halifax anticipates overspending of its welfare budget while Sai'flt John, N.B., and Chariottetown expect no i> G tc h w WASHINGTON (AP) A frightening subplot has been added to the drama of nuclear the prospect of a suitcase atomic bomb. Such a weapon is plausible, says a United States congressional study group and the pros-.pect is important in discussing the "nuclear blackmail" argument used by the Nixon administration to justify the Safeguard anti-ballistic missile system. Suitcase bombs have been cussed briefly in public by members of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives armed services committees. But the study group, which supports arms reductions, now says suitcase warfare is made possible by development of compact, lightweight, low-yield weapons. "For example, a package, the size of a portable color television set could conceal a weapon of Hiroshima the group says. "It could be carried by one Frightening Prospect Seen "Introduction of a megaton weapon into a U.S. cjty involves a somewhat larger package size, no larger than a hi-fi console and weight of half a The weapon, the study group suggests, could be taken from a submarine off the Oregon shore and placed on a river raft, transported via automobile to a Chicago hotel room or dumped into a trash barrel in front of the Capitol in Washington. TALK OF CHINESE The report says: "If a nation like Red China is reckoned such a risk that it would resort to nuclear blackmail by means of a ballistic-missile strike at a few U.S. cities, then presumably it would not be out of line to take seriously a covert attack with planted nuclear weapons." The suitcase-Domb study is a compilation of research papers distributed to congressmen by the military spending committee of a group known as Members of Congress for Peace Through Law. Defence Secretary Melvin R. Laird, seeking to justify the ABM system for defence of cities, has told Congress: "If the Chinese threat came into being as early as 1973, there would be a gap of several if Safeguard is not started "during which the Chinese could threaten nuclear blackmail against us." The -congressional study group concedes there may be the possibility China might develop a few intercontinental ballistic missiles and aim them at U.S. cities. But such a possibility is little justification for Safeguard for several reasons, including the option of the suitcase weapon, the eroup G gin firs def are sur of wer T ten for T the whc der bun am T der her divi res are the seu lari Hai the ogr nia nee gar Del T Jul feei At Univei TORONTO (CP) A experiment in televised lectures at the 'University of Toronto's Scarborough campus has been a.failure, Scarborough College Principal A.

It was the first American attack of North Vietnam reported in nearly a month.

Damage to the North Vietnamese gun positions was not known, the spokesman added. A' communique said the anti- aircraft battery was about seven miles west of Dong Hoi. The last such attack was on June 25. U.S. reconnaissance flights over North Vietnam continued after President Lyndon B. John- son ordered the bombing of North Vietnam stopped on Nov. 1, 1S63. Since the bombing halt, five reconnaissance planes and four escorts have been shot down ovef the North, and the TJ.S. defence department has re- ported more than 60 retaliatory attacks by American planes. are hard to find after 10. Professors have been avoiding television for lectures because it is a tool that requires special skills and training in how to use it effectively. Students did not like the sys- etm because it presented "talk- ng head" lectures. A good lec- turer was still effective, but a sad one became worse. At the same time, universities were moving away from the lec- ture as a teaching method. The medium lost effectiveness :he captive audiences dwindled through greater use of optional courses. Mr. Plumptre said the college initially tried using television in some MURDER BY MULTIPLICATION Man is the earth's canc.r, says Dr. Isaac Asimov in Saturday's Weekend Magazine.

IN YOUR LETHBRIDGE HERALD WEEKEND MAGAZINE spring were within the price re- straints criteria being adminis- tered by the commission. The companies are Firestone Tire and Rubber Co., Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co., and Dun- lop Canada Ltd. Only Goodyear publishes its financial statements, but the commission obtained figures confidentally from the otter firms for its price review. The commission said that in general, 40 per cent of the man- ufacturers' costs are attribut- able to materials, 30 per cent to salaries, wages aid related ben- efits, and the balance to over- head, advertising, financial ex- pense, taxes and profits.. Material cost increases are small for the industry this year, the report said, but labor and financial costs have gone up, and the profitability of manu- facturers has been affected by capital expenditures on new ma- chinery and technology. Goodyear's profit and return on investment will this year be somewhat above unusually-de- jressed levels of 1968 and 1969, >ut well below those of 1966 and !967. Firestone will absorb more han 20 per cent of its increased costs in 1970, and Dunlop has lad an inadequate return on in- vestment for a number of years. ITALY'S FIRST WOMEN TRAFFIC POLICE Angela Gaspirini, 21, left, and Carlo Fulci, 28, can hardly wait to start blowing the whistle on Rome's men drivers.

U.S. Aquagals Defy Theory Women Are Always Late GREAT LAMSHUR BAY, Vir- gin Islands (AP) The world's first team of female aquanauts, defying the theory that women are always late, came to the rface here after two weeks living under water. They were 25 minutes early. The five aquagals then en- tered a decompression chamber for a 21-hour stay. There was no explanation for the early return of the women who have been living in an un- derwater habitat, containing a kitchen and other es. The five pioneers in the un- erwater Tektite 2 program, heretofore dominated by male diving scientists, engineers and researchers of various sorts, are Dr. Sylvia Earle Mead of Angeles County Mu- Dr. Renate True of Tu- ___ University, Ann Hurley Hartline and "Aline Szmant of the Seripps Institute of Ocean- ography, University of Califor- nia at San Diego, and the engi- neer and back-up diver, Mar- garet Lucas of the University of lelaware. They have been down since July 6 for a .study of three dif- research' programs in- Speaking Of Dreaming TORONTO (CP) Persons who dream in color know themselves better than those who dream in black and white, a Toronto psychiatrist said today. Dr. Douglas Frayn of the Clarke Institute of Psychiatry said in an interview that the color dreamer is not afraid of his emotions and conflicts, clearly events in his life from clearly evenst in his life from age three and, as an adult, has dreams filled with emo- tion, sound and movement. Every person has about four dreams a night at 90-minute intervals, said the psychia- trist, who has just finished the first part of a study on the dreams of 50 persons. Dr. Frayn said the black- and white dreamer seldom can remember anything that happened to him before the age of five. The black-and- white dreamer often is absent from his dreams, which are also empty of sound. Tests on artists and other talented persons revealed they dreamed in color and re- called then- dreams more often, which has led Dr. Frayn to wonder whether there is a link between col- ored dreams and creativity. Dr. Frayn said dreams are vital to mental health for without them people can be- come disturbed. Heavy doses of sleeping pills, he said, can prevent dreaming as can amphetam- ines, termed "speed" by drug users. Two Break Legs In Collision CHILJ-iwACK, B.C. (CP) Police today identified two par- sons killed in a head on car crash user this Fraser Valley town Tuesday as John J. Hodg- kknsan, 81, cf White Rock, B.C., and his 59-year-old wife. In satisfactory condition with broken legs are Lawrence Breeze and Raymond Grenier, 24, both of Calgary. The accident happened about 20 miles east of here on the Trans Canada Highway. volving both fishes and plant life. The program will be contin- ued in subsequent Tektite 2 pro- jects continuing through Octo- ber, in which a total of 62 scien- tists will be involved. Milk Price Hikes Within Program OTTAWA (CP) and incomes commission said today that milk price increases announced in mid-April by three of the four main processors in the Vancouver area were within the commission's price restraint program. The commission said net profits of the three processors Fraser yalley Milk Produ- cers Association, Palm Dairies Ltd., and Silverwood Industries will decline this year as a percentage of their total sales. The price increases were found to be less than cost in- creases and therefore within the price restraint criteria estab- lished at a meeting of 300 busi- ness and professional leaders here in February, subsequently endorsed by federal- [provincial premiers conference. The fourth major milk proces- sor in the Vancouver area is Ca- nadian Safeway Ltd., but it did not increase its price to retail- ers. Safeway had a three-month strike last year, during which customers turned to the other processors, increasing their vol- ume of sales. PROFITS WILL DROP The commission said before profits, as a percentage of net sales, will decline this year for each of the three. For the Fraser Valley association, it would decline to 0.63 per cent from 1.18, and for Palm Dairies to 1.78 from 3.31. Silverwood's profit margin last year was only 0.14 per cent on milk, and it ex- pects its 1970 operations will The prices produce a loss of 1.14 per cent of net sales. On the other hand, the com- mission said, the cost of raw milk to the processors is ex- pected to rise about four per cent this year over 1969. This price is authorized by the pro- vincial milk board on the basis of indexes of wholesale and re- tail prices, British Columbia wages and salaries, and costs of hay, dairy feed and farm labor. Ths labor costs of the produ- cers will also increase by 10 per cent this year and again by a similar amount next year.
