J. who retires today as boss of Canadian National says Canada is cur- rently rolling along on the highest it has ever known. upsurge is definitely here and it is was the cheerful pronouncement of the one-time Winnipeg lawyer who joined CN 37 years ago. goods and produce are in very large demand. conditions have pre- vailed for quite some months. It has been about a year since we had any falling-off in rail- way traffic and that is one of the best barometers of the country at any All this means big chal- lenges for CN. Associates say that in his quiet way Mr. MacMillan has established a solid pattern of growth on which his successors can build. The work of Norman John chairman and president of CN since 1967 and operations chief of the publicly-owned system for 18 has touched the lives of millions of Canadians in one way or another. AVOIDS LIMELIGHT But he has walked clear of the limelight just as con- sistently as his predecessor and close the late Don- ald was followed by the public eye. Yet Mr. MacMillan is so well known in international transportation circles that London newspapers once re- ported he would become chairman of British Rail. thereby becoming the biggest rail figure in the country where railroading was born.

POLICY IS DILEMMA Asked for comment1 on a statement by Transport Min- ister Jean Marchand that he gets co-operation from the CN but riot Canadian Mr. MacMillan outlined in meas- ured terms a dilemma of transportation minister's arguments have been that he is called upon in the Commons to take responsibility for the short- comings of transportation without having the legal au- thority to do much about them.

Community employment program to be tested Ont. Manpower Minister Robert Andras said here the federal government with co-operation from the to experiment with a community program in 10 to 20 centres before expanding the approach across the country.

Mr. Andras said the program could be tested in small and medium-sized communities. upon results in the first year or year-and-a- we would consider pro- gressively expanding the ap- proach across he said. A community employment aimed at providing jobs for the hard-core unem- ployed is one of the major pro- posals suggested by the federal government in an overhaul of social security plans. Mr. Andras said the proposed program would rehabilitate many of the provide goods and services of value to the community and increase participation in community life. Mr. Andras suggested the participants may be enlisted to build or run play- daycare centres and activity centres for various groups. He appealed for support from businesses and private or- ganizations. But the minister warned that any for welfare attached to such a program might be fatal lo the plans. program must be uni- versally regarded and accepted not as a means of saving tax dollars but rather as a means of making better use of valuable community resources to do important community work. Mr. Andras said it would be difficult to estimate the cost of the program at this stage.
