"As the new decade opens, we the CYC said, exhibiting a good financial statement and the largest volunteer organization it has had since being founded in 1965. It quoted Melville Watkins, the New Democrat Waffle lead-er-but only to show he was wrong. Professor Watkins said in March, 1970, that: As the decade closes, there is little to cheer about. The Student Union for Peace Action disappeared some time ago. The Company of Young Canadians dies." The CYC just then was emerging from trusteeship after a purge following a parliamentary inquiry which found evidence of subversive activity and lack of financial control. The CYC, under executive director Dal Brodhead, who was its first field volunteer, says in its 1970 annual report: We live from Labrador to British Columbia. The report for the year ad yet March 31 shows the CYC gradually building up projects while cutting expenses. It spent only million of Its million budget. At March 31, it had 176 voun-teers working in 76 projects across the country. In a news release accompanying the report, Mr. Brodhead added that at July 1, the number had grown to 240 volunteers in 66 largest ever. Volunteers were working in all provinces but Newfoundland, with the emphasis on "assisting in the social and economic aspirations of the individual and the community." LIST PROJETS Picking out the projects it felt were most worthwhile the CYC included: effort in Halifax to give the blind an opportunity to organize and find solutions to their own problems. work of six CYC volunteers in northwestern Quebec to help local workers prepare a television series to aid communications in the area. citizens in Ottawa organize a child daycare centre. with the Wikwe-doong Cultural Centre at Thunder Bay, Ont, to compile a library of native legends, stories and folklore. in Winnipeg a self-help community service for immigrants and transients. low-income groups in Calgary organize and take part in issues affecting them. Working in Vancouver with citizens interested in the environment. The financial balance sheet showed the CYC had cut spending in the 1970-71 fiscal year to from the previous year. The amount for volunteers' expenses and benefits dropped to about from while head office expenses fell to from Translation and audit fees, another item, dropped to zero from writes last chapter in bitter out The brief, four-minute throne speech, read by Lt.-Gov. Stephen Worobetz, also gave notice the Mental Health Act will be changed to remove charges that can be made against estates of mental patients, and that, a study group has been formed to consider ways of increasing the number of available jobs in the province. Missing in the 60-seat legislative chamber Wednesday was the traditional pageantry which accompanies the opening. Absence of former premier Ross Thatcher, who was buried two days before, cast a sombre air among the newly-elected members. REGINA (CP) Bills resembling highlights of the New Democratic Party government's campaign for the June 23 election were introduced Wednesday in the throne opening arbitr special session of the Saskatchewan legislature. Among proposed legislation was repeal of the Essential Services Emergency Act, which gives the government power on force compulsory arbitration on unions, and the aboliton of hospital deterrent and medical care premiums for persons 65 years and older. The Essential Services Act would be killed by a two-paragraph bill introduced by Labor Minister Gordon Snyder. The act, one of the most bitterly-fought pieces of legislation in the province's history, would cease to exist rather than be watered down or replaced. The bill was passed in 1966 by the former Liberal administration under Ross Thatcher, as were both the medical care and hospital insurance provisions which also are to be about ce PARIS (AP) David K. E. Bruce, outgoing United States negotiator at the Vietnam peace talks, called today for immediate talks on an internationally-controlled ceasefire throughout Indochina. Bruce, 73, made the proposal at the, final weekly session of the peace talks he will attend. He is to leave Paris Sunday and is scheduled to be replaced soon by William J. Porter, U.S. ambassador to South Korea. The ceasefire has been consistently rejected by the Com-munis negotiators since first put forward two years ago. "Why do you object to considering a ceasefire along asefire Bruce asked. "You profess humanitarian goals and concern for the peoples of Indochina. You can prove this concern by joinging us in an effort to end all the fighting now. At last week's session, Xuan Thuy, chief North Vietnamese delegate, described the ceasefire as "absurd." "I see nothing absurd about trying to end the killing Bruce said today. "This is a serious proposal which does not deserve such a callous response. It is put forward without preconditions, and we ask again for immediate negotiations on it." Bruce said a ceasefire should be internationally supervised, should preclude any infiltration of "outside combat put an end ot "all kinds of warfare and cover the whole of Indochina and be "part of a general move to end the war there." Bruce said the failure of the Communist negotiators to clarify their seven-point peace plan "shows that you are still not ready to join us in a genuine negotiating process." Earlier, Mrs. Nguyen Thi Binh, Viet Cong foreign minister, charged the elections in South Vietnam are being "feverishly" rigged "under the direct supervision of the American embassy in Saigon." "In the provisionally occupied zones of South said Mrs. Binh, "fraudulent electoral manoeuvres are feverishly being prepared under the direct supervision of the American embassy in Saigon. KEEP THIEU IN "All levels of the population and all opponents of President Nguyen Van Thieu are subjected to increasing repression. The military, police and administrative apparatus and all the financial and propaganda sources with which tie United States has provided the Saigon regime are dedicated to these fraudulent elections seeking in.m.
