An enormous supply of cheap labor seems to be the main reason for the 131-year-old colony's continued success. Easter, Passover specials on ]AL In a spirit of aerial ccumcni- calisiu, Japan Air Lines will soon be serving pairtcd eggs, matzos, and sake on its inter- national flights.

Special winter season offer .g is m oartment store By NOHMAN CilDXEY HONG KONG (C'P) An enormous supply ot cheap la- bor appears lo be the driv- ing force behind Uie continued success ot this 131-year-old British Crown colony which could bo called manufacturer and department store to the world. The source of all the man- power for the huge textile mills here as well as innumer- able tenement factories and one-man, side-street opera- tions, is Ihe nearly four mil- lion Chinese refugees who have crowded info Houg Kong since the end of the Second World War. Space is at a premium here. One sees a man with a sewing machine on the sidewalk with e bolt of tlenini, cutting and putting together jeans. Car- penters and metalworkers carry on their trade in the middle of the sireel. Cheoy Lee shipyards near Kowloon on the mainland side of Hong Kong last year built 125 luxury yachts, mainly for the North American market, in a space no bigger than (wo acres. The firm emnloys 700 skilled workmen in what Ca- nadian shipbuilders would rie- Ecribo as extremely cramped quarters. LAND NOT USABLE Although the colony consists of square miles, most of it is mountainous and barren, unsuitable for agriculture or settlement. It leaves about one-sixth of the total land area for development. Fifty square miles are umtcr cultivation and the re- maining 12 square miles is built old city of Victo- ria on Hong Kong island and newer Kowloon on the main- land. These two areas contain Students cautioned to behave "Come on, ba welcomed Tills is the message imparte to Canadian college and univer sit.v students in i. new brochur called "Sun, 2nd C'jmmo- Sense." prepared by (he Baha- mas Ministry of Tourism. The brochure is designed tn aid students planning to their spring holidays in the Ba- hamas, and is being released through Bahama Island Tourist Offices. Edited by a itniversity ago Bahamian, Ihe brochure de- scribes activities of appeal to the younger set. II also de- scribes habits of dress, dining and includes other helpful in- form a f ion. In addition to welcoming stu- dents to the Bahamas, the Hon. Clement T. Maynard, Minister of Tourism, expresses his hope that spring vacations to the is- lands will be "relaxing, reward- big and enjoyable c a r c f r e o fun." His message also respect- fully requests that certain slan- dards of behavior be observed.

The population density in the built-up areas averages persons a square mile, among the highest in the world. The new Wall Fu hous- ing estate, considered by many a departure from the older crowded housing with few amenities, has peo- ple par acre, 10 times the density limit of public housing in London, one official said. The average workman pays out between 2-i and per cent of his wages in rent, ac- cording to government fig- ures. And the expensive hous- ing he lives in is probably shared with another family. One survey taken by the University of H o n f> Kong showed 79 per cent of house- holds sharing accommodation with others. LIVE ON WATER Many still live on sampans and junks in the barber, mak- ing a meagre living by fishing and serving the shipping trade. Almost all cargo com- ing into Hong Kong by ship is lightered in Although Hong Kong is one of the richest cities in Asia, with an annual per-capita in- come of it is plagued with severe social problems o'.bev than housing. A recent spate of robberies and holdups has made Hong Kong's banks and manv jew- elry stores jittery. Guards armed with shotguns now stand at Ihe entrances of many and there's talk of insfalling doors that will automatically close on bandits. Air pollution is severe. Al times, smoke obscures the fa- mous view from Victoria Peak, highest point on Hong Kong Island. Noise is another annoying problem. But the tourist's Honq Kong shows no sign of being af- fected. Shops on bustling Nathan Road in Kowloon seem to at- tract as manv bargain-hunt- ers as ever. There's no sales tax or import duty in Hong Kong, so goods manufactured abroad arc often cheaper here anywhere, else. Several Communirt Chinese department stores do a roar- ing business. One kind sells everyday goods, clothes and foodstuffs mostly. Men's un- derwear sells for 25 cents Ca- nadian a pair, cashmere sweaters for to The arts and crafts stores run by Ihe People's Republic sell a varied line of well made goods, ranging from inexpen- sive bamboo ware to porce- lain and ivory carvings. The, polite English manner in dealing with disagreeable annoyances is still evident. Vi'itr.ess a sign erected re- cently in the Botanical Gar- dens: "At all times please do not practise shadow-boxing or exercises in Ihe middle of the path to the inconvenience of others." It's aimed at early-rising, fitness-minded Chinese who take their morning exercises in the public squares and the only open spaces in the city of Hong Kong. the carefree MONTREAL During the 13sh soccer season starts at the winter season, j end of March.
