The campaign was first in tiated in 1968 and officials art confident that a safety aware- ness program can reduce th number of serious injuries aiv fatalities that take place an nually on the roads across Can ada. Last year a total of 23 were killed in traffic durin_ holiday weekends in Alberta alone. Alcohol was the con tributing factor in many in- stances, rath driver error ac counting for a large number oi crashes as well. Statistics have pointed ou hat seat belts were not worn rn the case of most injuries and only one fatality victim ast year was wearing safety belts. Once again the AMA will be drawing heavily on the assist ance of ham radio operators, lying clubs, RCMP, City Po- ice and the news media in an effort to convey the safety mes sage to holidaying Albertans.

Register WUh CMC 300 Students Find New Jobs About 300 Letlibridee stu- dents registered wilh Hie Can- ada Manpower Centre have found summer jobs, a CMC spokesman said Thursday. Guy Sabey, student place- ment officer lor the University of Lethbridge on loan to CMC for the summer, said these students had either been plac- ed directly by the manpower centre or had registered and then found jobs on their own. Although no accurate esti- mate of the total number of young people looking for jobs is available, have regis- tered so far with CMC. This figure is made up of 750 male and 425 female applicants. Mr. Sabay noted that despite emphasis during Hire a SVu- dent Week on hiring girls, only 20 were able to find jobs, as compared with CO men The general outlook for femala job- seekers, he said, is not too favorable. Of the 275 employers con- tacted since the start o[ Hire- a-Student Week, about 30 per cent have indicated they have hired or will hire students. The employers were contacted by five students from the Uni- versity of Lethbridge and the Lethbridge Community College who are working for CMC this summer. Mr. Sabey predicted that des- pite the discouraging outlook for female job seekers, the over all picture in the city is such that most students should be able to find work. The local situation he felt, is better than in other centres.
