Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 22, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta _ THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, July 11, 1970- Downtowns Fight To Stay Alive NEW YORK (AP) -After two decades of decline, neglect and disrepair, the downtown areas of many middle-sized American cities are trying to fight their way back to useful- n e s s respectability. A change in image and a change In functions are the main weap- ons being used. Like one-industry communi- ties trying to diversify, the downtowns of these cities or less in population have been valiantly toying to change their role from pri- marily a regional shopping centre to a manifold attrac- tion. They have sought to become centres of physically striking office towers and homes for culture, government and spe- cial such as sports, exhibitions and conventions. And they have Wed a myriad Mackasey: All Must Contribute To Jobless Fund TORONTO (CP) Labor Minister Bryce Mackasey told a Liberal association meeting last night he will fight "any vested group" that opposes uni- versality of unemployment in- surance contributions. Mr. Mackasey used the Dav- enport Liberal meeting to de- fend his white paper on unem- ployment insurance, tabled June 17 in the House of Com- mons. The white paper's suggestion that persons be added to the group which must pay un- employment insurance prem- iums is a limited form of uni- versality, he said. Those to be included would be mainly teachers, civil servants and persons over the present cutoff level. Only self-employed persons would be excluded. A young man who said he was I teacher asked Mr. Mackasey why he should pay unemploy- ment insurance premiums when he could never expect to collect benefits. He said he has a "per- manent contract" to teach until be is 65, "unless I commit some moral offence." Mr. Mackasey replied: "If any unionists were bold enough to ask for a permanent Job until age 65 and the other thongs that you teachers have, they would be called Commun- ists and tossed in the river." "I didn't mind last year when two teachers asked me to pledge a week for some poor starving kid in Mr. Mackasey said. "But now I'm asking you not to mind paying 50 cents a week to help some poor starving Newfoundland Md whose dad is out of work." The white paper suggests July 1, 1971, as the target date for implementing the white paper proposals, which include in- creasing unemployment bene- fits. -Ask About The NEW INVISIBLE MULTIFOCAL LENS fMULTILUX) of ways to adapt their physi- cal structure to the automo- bile. But after a decade of re- building, which is still conUmt- ing, the complete results are not in. Many factors still oper- ate against a downtown renais- sance. SOME THY CULTURE The high cost of. owning urban land still drives home owners and businesses to the suburbs; intricate government proced- ures delay translating plans in- to fact; and fears of rising crime and possible racial con- flicts deter suburbanites from coming into downtown even to go to the theatre or restau- rants at night. When the flight to the suburbs caught them unprepared, and the suburban shopping centres stole their trade, many of the country's cities found they had little left to attract people. To provide new lures, some have built cultural facilities, such as the dramatically de- signed Everson Mu- seum which opened last year in Syracuse N.Y., soon to be join- ed by a performing, art centre. Nearly all have sought to cap- ture the lure of special events in a civic centre-auditorium for sports, conventions or exhibi- tions.

Ohio, to bo renewed at a cost of In Louisville, Ky., the whole thrust of a compre- hensive redevelop- ment plan is to bring the city back to its historic riverfront. There, are contradictions in the methods being used. On one hand, coast-to-coast bonds are being floated for more high- ways, more parking garages. On the other, cities such as Tulsa, Okla., Reading, Pa., Springfield, 111., Richmond, Va., and Providence, R.I., already have closed off or seek to large areas, many former streets, from auto traffic. Here, they hope to duplicate the abili- ty to walk to every type of store, as the suburban shopping centres allow. And almost all have tried to replace the old with the new and build striking towers with unforgettable images. Attracting suburbanites to downtown is still a difficult task. In a copyright poll, the Des Moines Tribune found this year that seven out of 10 of the 000 adults in the Des Moines, Iowa, metropolitan area would rather go to a suburban shop- ping centre than downtown. SEEK DAY SHOPPERS Thus downtown retailers are trying to cater to the "built-in market of to peo- ple a day who work said James Ward, secretary of the Retail Merchants Bureau. They are seeking more over- head walkways to provide wea- therproof passage for pedestri- ans and less conflict with cars. Some statistics provide a pic- ture of the decline of shopping in downtown. In Portland, a private study done for the Chamber o' Commerce declared that retail- ing, "should no longer be con- sidered a primary function of downtown Portland." In 1958. downtown had accounted for 90.4 per cent of retail sales in its metropolitan area. By 1967, that figure had dropped to 57.1 per cent The threat of a shopping mall opening in 1971 outside towp with more than 30 stores has overcome opposition to new parking facilities' from private parking lot owners and the city is about to build a 600-car muni- cipal garage downtown. Migrant Workers Exploited WASHINGTON (AP) Se- nate committee was told today that migrant farm workers, low- est paid in the United States, "are exploited .by Texas politi- cians and huge corporations such as Coca Cola. The charges were made at the second day. of hearings by the migratory labor subcommittee. Monday, a team of doctors spoke of wretched living and health conditions for farm work- Philip W. Moore testified that Coca Cola's sub- sidiary, Minute Maid, operates poorly-equipped migrant quart- ers in Florida. Moore, co-ordinator of a Ralph Nader-inspired corpora- tion watchdog group, said the facilities have no indoor water or plumbing and conditions gen- erally are "unquestionably bad." "But what is worse is the social control that is maintained over the life style of the mi- Moore said. "In order to live in these houses, a family must work for Coke. If someone is sick, the foreman, not the doctor can de- cide whether the person can stay home. FACE EVICTION "If the foreman decides that a worker is not sick then he must either work or risk eviction from his house and total loss of income, housing, medical sup- port and food." A lawyer working with the United Farm Workers Organiz- ing Committee in Texas' rich agricultural valley, Koger Mc- Ciure Dunwell, said politicians such as Senate candidate Lloyd Bentsen have long held domi- nant control over the affairs of some of the counties where the poorest migrant workers live. Areas Reopened In Jasper Park CALGAKY (CP) Six areas of Jasper National Park which were closed July 10 because of extreme fire hazard have been reopened, a park spokesman said today. Rains over the weekend low- ered the risk, he said, but peo- ple entering the areas are re- quired to register with park of- ficials and are advised to use caution with fires.
