Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 27, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta MAKING BLOCKS TO REBUILD Two natives of Bangladesh use a machine to make bricks for reconstruction in that country with the help of Canadian aid programs. The Canadian International Development Agency announced Canadian old to Bangladesh would reach million in the 1972-73 fiscal year. Hostel use increases More young people travel OTTAWA (CP) The num- ber of young Canadians travel- ling around the country is slightly higher than last sum- mer, Brian Gilhuly, co-ordinator of the federal hostel and kiosk program, said Tuesday. He was commenting on a re- port Monday which suggested an apparent decrease this sum- mer in the number of young travellers. Monday's report, Mr. Gilhuly said, was based on figures from two weeks ago provided by Larry Steinman, regions' co-or- dinator of hostels in and southwestern Ontario, showing a decrease of 10 to 20 per cent in hostel use in the re- gion. "At that time, the weather in Toronto was awful. It was only a temporary decline. Otherwise, the number of people using hos- tels is up a little from last year." The hostel and kiosk branch receives weekly usage reports from its 12 regional co-ordina- tors across the country and reg- ular reports from Individual hostels. The government has 117 hos- tels operating this summer, on a budget of million, com- pared with 96 last year. This means an additional 500 beds over last year. The capacity of the hostels varies from 15 to 200 beds. "Hostels this year have been operating at two-thirds their ca- Mr. Gilhuly said. "The most popular area this summer has been the Prairies. "The government is trying to create more hostels while at the same time making them smaller." Ottawa's two hostels were made into four smaller ones this summer. "We're finding that kids are trying to bypass the larger cit- ies. So we want to set up more hostels in the smaller centres." He later said this might be another reason a large city like Toronto would report reduced use of its hostels. NORTH LACKS ROOM "We'd also like to establish more hostels along alternate routes." Government hostels are lo- cated along the Trans-Canada Highway system, the Yellow- knife Route in the west and north and a circular route around the Maritime provinces. Mr. Gilhuly said more young people would like to travel north but there just aren't the hostels to accommodate them. In response to one Toronto youth worker who claimed in Monday's report that the gov- ernment had taken the chal- lenge out of travelling for young people by providing cheap and available accommodation, caus- ing the alleged decline, he re- plied: "So many people complain that by setting up hostels, w created this mass migration. "The hostels are not Holiday Inns. Kids are travelling and i isn't merely because of the hos tel situation. Travel is just a normal part of learning abou our society." In Europe, he said, a summe on the road is accepted as par of the normal growing-up proc ess. "Ten years ago a young per son on the road was considers an oddball and probably knew the ropes already. I would hope that most young people be ex posed to more of Canada than just the communities they com from." The hostels are contained In old schools, houses, churcbe1 and any other facilities offeret One in Regina is in an old thea Ire. Many are set up on a camp- ground basis with sleeping ac- commodation in tents. All federal hostels cost 5( cents a you can affon It. If not, it's free. A number c municipal and provincial wei fare departments have offerei to subsidize the hostels. 'About two-thirds to three- quartera of the kids sail Mr. Gilhuly. "We figure abou 80 per cent really can afforc to." Service industries jobs available says statistics OTTAWA (CP) There wai an average of full and part-lime jobs available for im- mediate employment in the first three months of this year, up sharply from in the same period last year, Statistics Can- ada reported here. Of the total, full-time job va- cancies numbered up from a year earlier, and of these, were unfilled for a month or more, compared with in the first quarter of 1971. The figures are based on sur- veys of major employers taken twice a month by the federal statistics bureau. The figures are averaged for periods of three months. The survey is new, the first having been published ast December, and analysts are not yet fully experienced on how seasonal and other factors are reflected in the figures. tYAMAHA MOTORCYCLES THE QUIET, CLEAN ONES BEAUTIFUL 100cc ROAD TWIN 125co ROAD FUTURISTIC STYLING 5 SPEED TRANSMISSION TURN SIGNALS SPEEDOMETER TACHOMETER TWO BUYS THAT CANT BE BEAT SEE THEM AT YOUR LOCAL YAMAHA DEALER YAMAHA ffc bettor machine FMD unrm utWHiethAvimn v.ncMmr I. D.a P1IONI: in41H The bureau said, however that the trend showed a lairl; steady growth in unfilled job va cancies from January to Sep- tember, last year with the fig ure declining until January this year. VACANCIES HIGHER Job vacancies Increased again in January and February this year. Forty per cent of the job va- cancies recorded in the firsl quarter of this year were for white-collar workers. Clerical and sales positions continued to be the largest single group of vacancies. The most significant increase in the first three months of this year was in employment oppor- tunities in the service indus- tries. But compared with a year earlier, the increase in employ- ment demand was in the blue- collar field, with more than Aou- ble the number of jobs available in bench work. This reflected in- creased demand for textile workers. Statistics Canada said that Quebec and the Pacific region Columbia and the Yu- marked increases in the number of vacancies for full-lime workers between the last three months of 1971 and the first three of 1972. Ontario and the Atlantic region reported fewer full-time job vacancies. But all regions reported higher numbers of jobs avail- able this year than In the same period of last year. Top swimmers CLARESHOLM (HNS) Swimmers from six towns of southern Alberta participated in (he annual invitational swim meet competition here with full cooperation from the weather man.

Several dales, when it was to have been completed and ready for operation, have now passed. The completion date accord- ing to the contract was July 17. Next the beginning of July was seen as possible. Then August. Now council members say It Is unlikely the pool could be operational by the beginning of August. The contractors are Calgary Pool Services Ltd. There was no penalty clause for completion. Council said steps wil! be taken to see what can be done to iron out some of the wrinkles in the contract. In the meantime council okayed an expediture of to bus Coaldale school-aged chil- dren to the Lethbridge Hender- son Lake swimming pool Tues- days and Thursdays during July. Bangladesh builds broken bridges Things only slightly better now DACCA (Reuter) Six months after what is called "liberation" from Pakistan, the economy of Bangladesh is pick- ing only slowly. The law and order situation in many areas is strained. Unem- ployment among the new na- tion's 75 million persons is high and the government seems un- able to take firm decisions. While fears of widespread famine in this closely-packed country on the northwest edge of the Bay of Bengal have been calmed, there is no underesti- mating problems facing the new nation. With foreign aid, about BO per cent of the many vital bridges destroyed during last year's civil conflict and the December t w o -w e e k Indo-Pakistan war have been repaired. Thanks to huge shipments of food from abroad, most of the population is being if not adequately by Western standards. WATER IS BARRIER The square miles is not much more than a huge river delta, criss-crossed by water. At the best of times this hampers movement and is a nightmare during the three monsoon months from late Juno to Sep- tember. Scouts camp STIRLING (HNS) Nine Boy Scouts and Dr. Dave Steed camped out for three days in the foothills of Chief Mountain. No tents were used. Lean-tos were constructed of plastic sheets and trees. Tony Romeril, Brad Ferret and Ward Hicken won first for the best lean-to. Holt Zaugg and Dale Herget won second with leader Dave Steed coming in third. Tony Romeril won the championship for the best rain- bow trout. Other boys attend- ing were Allen Hogenson, Brad and Mark Steed and Kendall Ferret.

United by Islam, the Bengalis of the former East Pakistan nevertheless have a different cultural and linguistic back- ground to the peopls of West Pakistan and their development was slower.
