Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 24, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THI IETHBRIDOI HERALD Saturday, July 54, 1971 System change in 1975 Smooth team ivork in UI reforms By IAN POKTEK OTTAWA (CP Once upon a time, the unemployment in- surance commission was a drudge. Its days were taken up with rules and regulations and the grimmer facts of economic life money from work- ers and employers and paying out the small weekly benefits approved for some people with- out jobs. Last year ttie government proposed" a reform of the unem- poyment insurance system-to be complete by 1975-that would depend largely on smooth team- work between the commission Bjid the manpower department. A basic premise of the reform was that people want to work and will do so if the opportuni- ties are available. ADVISE WORKER Under the new plan, the com- mission would see that the un- employed worker receiving ben- efits explored every avenue open to him, including the serv- ices offered by the manpower department.' There were many otner changes. Foremost, perhaps, is the extension of coverage to an additional 1.2 million workers and the increase in the ceiling on benefits to a week. With the reforms passed into law and beginning to take ef- fect, is it apparent that a main result has been to give the com- mission a face. Freed from collecting prem- iums-that job has gone to the national revenue the commission now is training staff to serve as claimant-assist- ance counsellors. Their principal aim will no be to find new jobs for their clients but to discover what help is needed and to advise where i can be obtained. Two or three weeks after a vorker begins to receive bene- its, he or she will be invited to he local commission office for an interview. The procedure is 'oluntary and to assure a confi- dential atmosphere, the com- mission has promised that no one will lose benefits as a result of the private discussions. The assistance program is being Ottawa tveekly livestock report OTTAWA (CP) Cattle of- ferings at the 10 public stock- yards from Monday to Thurs- day this week at head were about below the pre- vious week and fewer than in the corresponding week a year ago.

Trade moderately ac (CP) A local restaurateur pleaded not guilty here to a charge of failing to comply with an order of the British Colum- bia Broiler Marketing board by importing Alberta chicken with- out the board's permission. The charge against El Ran- cho Take Home was laid by Mark Wilton, mvner of a Prince George drive in, in what had been described as a manoeuvre to test the case in court. Trial was set for Aug. 23. El Rancho owner Henry Duchscherer said he wanted to take the case to court after failing to agree with the mar- keting board following a meet- ing last week. Both he and Mr. Witton had earlier expressed dissatisfac- tion with the board's ruling which prevented them from buying Alberta fowl. Both said they got better delivery service and better quality chickens from Alberta. Suppliers who violate board regulations are liable to fines from to or prison terms of up to six months or both. Prices on steers and heifer's varied from steady to lower for the week. Cows varied from higher to 50 cents lower. Feeder cattle met only a mod- erate demand at steady at lower prices. The calf market was dull and mainly 50 cents to lower. Hog prices were higher at all market centres, and good lambs were generally steady to ?2 lower.

OVERS NEW GROUND The new plan has involved the in the field of insur- ance against loss of income as a esult of sickness or pregnancy. Opposition to the change fo- largely on the effect it ould have on existing entploy- r-employee sickness insurance greements. The commission estimates lat about two million workers re in plans offering better pro- ection than that provided by re legislation. Another two mil- bn, however, are in inferior lans and an equal number ave no such protection. The trick now is to encourage Jiose employers with satisfac- programs to continue with lem while ensuring improved protection for the remainder. The commission has begun to atalogue all company plans in he country and intends reduc- ing premiums by close to one ourtli for those employers who meet its sickness insurance standards. If it succeeds in persuading employers to maintain their ex- sting plans, the commission can keep the cost of the spetia nsurance close to its original estimate of million in 1972. Should all employers end sick- ness insurance, the cost to the commission would balloon to 5230 million. Amazing things turn up in government books LEAVING HIS POST Arthur J. R. Smith, whose ec- onomic advice to the govern- ment fell on stony ground in recent months announced that he is leaving his post as chairman of the Economic Council of Canada.

Dental care plan sure thing WINDSOR, Ont. the Ontario Dental Association says a government- run dental insurance plan of some sort "is inevitable in On- tario in the 1970s." Dr. Lionel J. Schiller of Windsor said in an interview yesterday that the province's dentists have sug- gested to the provincial govern- ment that such a plan be started for three-year-old chil- dren. He said that each year a new group of children would be added to the plan, until event- ually everyone was in the scheme. Unemployment for July hits highest level LONDON (AP) The num- ber of unemployed workers in Britain rose in July to the high- est leve for this month in 31 years, the government reported tcday. The department of employ- ment said persons were out of work, more than in June. The figures were the highest for July since 1940 and compare with for February, 1963, when Hie worst winter in almost a century hit the construction industry. The percentage of u n e m- ployed in Britain now is 3.4 as compared with 3.2 in June, con- sidered high in Britain. In Northern Ireland, a chronically bad area, the percentage rose from 7.3 in June to 8.4 this month. By DAVE McINTOSH OTTAWA Govern- ment departments don't just spend. They take in money, too.

VIMY, France (CP) A few miles from Arras in northern France stand two white stone pylons commemorating the Canadians who served overseas during the First World War. Sitting atop a massive square base, ornate with sculptures and inscriptions, the Vimy monu- ment also recalls the Ca- nadians who died in the war. During one of the fiercest bat- tles of the war, Canadian troops took Vimy from the Germans in 1917. Vimy Ridge still belongs to Canada and there, on a 250-acre piece of land donated by France, stands the monument. The base of the monument, 25 feet high and 237 feet long, car- ries the names of Cana- dian soldiers who were killed in the war and whose burial place is unknown. The pylons carry the names of battles fought by the Canadian volunteers, about one-tenth of Canada's male population in 1917. Around the monument, distanl open country brings to mind various the north, Ypres where Canadians encountered their first mustard gas attack, Passchendaele ridge, Mount Sorrel woods and the Saint-Eloi marshes. Closer were Pestubert, Given chy, Hill 70 and Lens. To the south were Amiens, where the final march to victory began in August, 1918, and the low hills marking the Somme battle- grounds in 1916. The monument depicts the solid wall of defence. Sculptured figures represent the French, Canadian and British forces as well as Bravery, Sympathy, Sacrifice, Justice, Truth, Sd- enee, Death, Pain, Peace and lie Cross. Built of white stone taken from a Roman quarry in Yugo- slavia, the monument stands 138 feet high and weighs tons. It was inaugurated July 28, 1936, by King Edward VTII and Albert Lebrun, last president of the Third French Republic. Its dominant position on Arras, Douai and Lens made Vimy Ridge one of the most im- portant strategic points on tht Western front during the war. After unsuccessful attempts to get the Germans off the Ridge, the Canadians were finally given the task of getting Hill 145 in 1917. The attack began at dawn April 9, and more than 12 hours later, with dead or injured, the Canadians took the hill and won 2% miles of land. SAN DIEGO GETS GOP DENVER, Colo.
