QUALITY DRY CLEANING BY THE LOAD B-lbs. (Normal Garment) PRE-SPOTTED AFTER-SPOTTED By Our Attendant Tn spite of the Improved pic- j lure, the company still had an i overall deficit of million. But this was the lowest deficit since 1956. The company's annual report, tabled in the Commons Thurs- day, says railway operating rev- enues totalled million while railway operating expen- ses amounted to million records. The net railway operating in- come, or operating profit, was million, highest since 1966. Wilh other operations added, the company's total net income was million, down SI.6 mil- lion from the previous year. Be- sides railways, the company is involved in road and water transportation, telecommuni- cations, hotels, real estate and international consulting.

Mr, Davis said In a leleohnne interview recently that studies arc well advanced toward nating a Canadian oil-gas pipe- line corridor wiu'ch would avoid environmentally-sensilive areas.

The crude oil would be shipped by tanker from Valdcz to U.S. refineries. PASS NEAR COAST Since the ships would remain in U.S. and international lers, Canada mil have no con- trol over them as they pass along the B.C. coast, Mr. Davis said.

(AP> Richard Black received a life sentence yesterday after being convirlcd of robbing the same drugstore six times. Employees at Thel- pan American Sundry Store said each time the 30-year-old Black paid a visit he would pull a gun and demand ?100 in cash and n carton of cigarettes. Most of Hie Alaska oil will be destined for California, he said, and (ankers going there will loop out inlo the Pacific Ocean. The chief clanger to B.C. will come from the tankers bound for refineries in Washington stale. Mr. Davis said. Most of the oil supplied to the refinery at Cherry Point, near Belh'ngham, has come from Alberta through the Trans-Moimlain pipeline, Mr. Davis said, and Ihe govcnimer.l would like to see that flow cou- tinued. ll.v DAVIS TIIO.M.AS Canadian Press Staff Wrilcr Two Ottawa public school students have solved their summer .spending problems by returning discarded milk jugs to the supermarket and collecting the deposit. The kids have found a steady source of the while plastic city dairy's garbage bin, the repo- sitory of damaged jugs. But thousands of older stu- dents are looking for more lu- crative employment Iliat will help them through the next school year. A Cross-Canada Survey by The Canadian Press indicates that the slow economic thaw seems to be giving the sum- mer job outlook a moderately optimistic tinge in most prov- inces. The federal manpower de- partment estimates that 1.306.000 students are looking for summer jobs, an increase of over 1971. About one-third of summer job seek- ers are college or university students. SOME DISAPPOINTED Last summer, 90 per cent of all post-secondary students wanting work found some kind of job, although they were often short-term or part-time, t h e department savs. A department survey of 1971 summer employment shows that post-secondary students earned an average wifh average end-of-summer savings of S535. Girls had more difficulty finding work. When they did, their earnings were lower. Eight per cent of male stu- dents and 13 per cent of fe- males found no employment at all. The average take for a fe- male was S700, compared wilh for men. A manpower survey of stu- dents wanting jobs this sum- mer shows that almost half want work related to their studies or career ambitions, with secondary importance at- tached to pay. Only 7.5 per cent said they were after jobs with a direct social benefit, regardless of earnings. Students who worked at least eight weeks last summer but can't find a job this year can apply for unemployment insurance benefits. Weekly benefit cheques, based on con- tributions paid last summer, will be paid for up to eight weeks. ESTABLISH CENTRES The manpower department has established 132 special employment centres across the country for summer job seekers, supplementing the 3flO permanent manpower centres. All the centres are administering student-hiring programs, including two spe- cial schemes that will scud students to jobs in other parts of Canada and Europe. The federal government it- self expecls to hire students, including militia members and casual laborers.

The Canadian Chamber Commerce is encouraging Us member companies to hire students at (he rate of five per cent of their regular work- force. Last year more than sludenl.s were hired by chamber members, ii says. Chamber chairman Brock Bradley has said the summer job situation will remain tough imlil schools abandon the aca- demic year. The summer job problem is he said, by the concurrent surge of graduating students looking for permanent careers. But private industry still is the biggest employer of sum- mer workers. Last year U5 per cent of all hot-weather jobs were in the private sector. ff last year's pattern holds true, more than half of all available summer jobs are aJ- ready filled. The job outlook on the Prai- ries: fiflger Giirrily, head of (he University of Manitoba man- power centre, says it should lie a good summer ivilli both agriculture and conslrucfion- rclaled industries expand i n g their staffs. Optimism is also the mood at Ihe University of Winnipeg placement office where there's a strong demand for girls who type. A placement officer at Brandon University says there arc job openings for life guards and camp.ground at- tendants but they will be gone by Ihe beginning of the sum- mer. Low 137] unemployment, ti- gurc.s on the J'rairies may be misleading since students helping out on Ihe family farm w e e classed as em- ployed, but the siliir.Uon in Saskatchewan looks good again this year. A SI.5 million provincial program will pay up to S150 of a student's monthly salary and the incentive is expected to work. The provincial highways de- partment is one of Saskatche- wan's biggest single employ- ers and hire about 2.10 lliis year.
