English bosses Lhink' Canadian girls arc good workers. Lance Sccretan says that may be because it's often the brightest girls who want to travel. Mr. Secret an is in Canada recruiting girls who can type 50 words a minute, take short- hand ai. lhe rale of 105 words a minute and have two years working experience. He wants them lo work as temporary olftce help in London from April to October. He says in spite of Ihc high unemployment rale in Eng- land, there are jobs for skilled secretarial people. He is managing director of Manpower Ltd., the English branch of Manpower Business Sen'ices, a firm which sup- plies temporary help. They have offices in 35 counlries. .Mr. Sec-retail says a .sprin- of girJs has ap- plied in his firm for jobs in oilier countries, h n t his piraenl visit Is par! of a defi- nite, organized effort to re- eruit people. litiips to cruale in- terest in peripheral employees who might not o t h c r w i s u uork.

Aboul 90 per cent did come lo work for offices in England "We do it because tlia nmunl of business we do is governed by now many people we can supply (o employers." Tlie firm makes its money from fees paid by clients. William J. Coke, the Cana- dian vice-president, said-. "We're delighted when Eng- lish girls come here because employers say Uiey're better [rained, but the reverse is true in England." lUr.

"They'll make S55 (o sta a week, the equivalent of about 5100 here. Our work travel program centres on London, the jobs will be there, but we might be able lo arrange work in another city in a few cases." They can get work permits for April lo October. "Thats jusl so Ihe govern- ment can keep tabs un vis- itors. When you have a mil- lion unemployed, no politician in his right mind is going to say 'We're bringing people in to take jobs.' Travel arrangements can be marie to other countries as well, though some countries have closed their doors to for- eign workers. "Germany has had two mil- lion foreign workers, but Swe- den has rejected all foreign workers. "In .Italy and Spain they're outlawed because the state doesn't want competition from Ihe private sector. "Socialist countries will say the slate has responsibility lo provide employment lo the private sector. "In Cape Town, 50 per cent of the office staff comes from overseas." Mr. Coke says his firm would be interested in secre- tarial help who want to move from one Canadian city to an- other. Both men say the tempo- rary help business has been thriving in the last eight to years. They see its approach as an alternative to full-lime employment, which they argue is not a realistic eco- nomical goal.

And, eagerly waiting their holiday, he said: are patients in a nursing lle s to VI: liome. The youngsters have bene- filted from the program in a surprising number of ways, says Christine Meikle, founder and director ol the school. "At the school we hadn't thought of teaching our stu- dents such things as how to operate elevators, hut (his is just the kind of thing they are learning on their visits." About eight children normal- ly take part, visiting specific nursing-home patients on a one-lo-one basis. They go for walks with their friends, push wheelchairs, and the boys lake part in recreational games. The visits are an important part of the school's program lo telp integrate its older stu- dents inlo public life, says Mrs, Meikle. The visits began on a regular basis last Christmas. The pi'tienls obviously aro used to the children. When one resident heard that his regular visitor wouldn't be coming because of a school come. He's a volunteer." WEDDING GIFT MONCTON N.B.
