Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 13, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Summer job outlook is brighter this year in most provinces li.v DAVK THOMAS Canadian Tress Staff Writer Railway rolls to new records Davis OTTAWA fCP) Canadian National Railways rolled to new operating records in 1971 while showing the best overall finan- cial record since 1966, the Crown corporation announced DRY CLEANING BY THE LOAD 8-lbs.

Jack Davis 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 re enues imnnv T 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. With other operations added, the company's total net income I was million, down mil- lion from the previous year.

The financial deficit of million came after payment of million Interest on long- term debt. N. J. MacMillan, CN'R chair- man and president, said eco- nomic sluggishness, a ?56.7 mil- lion increase in wages and bad winter weather hurt railway revenues in the first half of 1971. But with the upswing in the economy and the strict con- trol of expenses, railway reve- nue had increased and the com- pany finished the year on a high note. Passenger rail revenue fell by one per cent as the number of passengers using the railway declined by to 13.3 mil- lion. But carload freight income in- creased 12 per cent; express revenues were up by 9.7 pel cent: hotel revenues climbed by 12.4 per cent; and telecommuni- cations income increased sij per cent. LIFE FOR ROBBERIES says he can't understand why the U.S. government approved Hie trans-Alaska oil pipeline when a pipeline through Canada "is inevitable." Mr. Davis said In R teleolinne interview recently Uiat studies arc well advanced toward Desig- nating a Canadian oil-gas pipe- line corridor which would avoid environmentally-sensit ive areas. "Our question is: Why create the hazard of a tanker lino down the West The minister said he Is disap- pointed by the decis i o n, an- rounced Thursday by U.S. Inle- ior Secretary Rogers Morftn, o issue- a permit or the aOO-mile pipeline from Alaska's North Slope oil fields o the state's ice-free port of Valdez. The crude oil would be shipped by tanker from Valdez o U.S. refineries. >ASS NEAR COAST Since the ships would remain n U.S. and international wa- .ers, Canada will have no con- ,rol over them as they pass along the B.C. coast, Mr. Davis said. But. he added, Canada still will do its utmost to keep the tankers out of the Puget Sound re a. Most o! the Alaska oil will be destined for California, he said, and tankers going there will loop out into the Pacific Ocean. The chief danger to B.C. will come from the tankers bound for refineries in Washington state. Mr. Davis said. Most of the oil supplied to the refinery at Cherry Point, Wash., near Bellingham, has come from Alberta through the Trans-Mountain pipeline, Mr. Davis said, and the government would like to see that flow con- tinued. Two Ottawa public school students have solved their summer s.nending problems returning discarded milk jugs to the supermarket and collecting the 40-cent deposit. The kids have found a steady source of the white plastic city dairy's garbage bin, the repo- j sitory of damaged jugs. But thousands of older stu- i dents are looking for more lu- ci alive employment that will i help them through the next i school year. j A Cross-Canada Survey by j The Canadian Press indicates j that the slow economic thaw j seems to be giving the sum- j 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 1 kind of job, although they were often short-term or part-time, t h e department A department survey of 1971 summer employment shows that post-secondary students earned an average with average end-of-summer savings of 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 with for men. A manpower survey of stu- dents wanting jobs tills 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 390 permanent manpower centres. All the centres are administering student-hiring programs, including two spe- cial schemes that will send students to jobs in other parts of Canada and Europe. The federal government it- self expects to hire students, including militia members and casual laborers. This summer's Opportunities for Youth pro- gram is expected to pjve jobs to 29.000. The application deadline is long past and pro- ject approvals should have al- ready lioen received by suc- cessful applicants. The Canadian Chamber nf Commerce is encouraging its member companies to hire students at the rate of five per cent of their regular work force. Last year more than students were hired by 1.46S chamber members, it says. Chamber chairman Brock Bradley has said the summer job situation will remain tough until schools abandon the September-to-May aca- demic year. The summer job problem is compounded, lie 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 85 per cent of ail hot-weather jobs were in the private sector. ff last year's pattern holds true, more than half of all available summer jobs are al- ready filled. The job outlook on the Prai- ries: ______ ___________.........._____.......____Snlurctoy, Mny 13. lilt THU '.9 Oil. fins firm earnings CALGAKY (CP) The earn- ings of HP Oil and Gas Ltd. in- creased 11.7 per cent to 000 or !i.l conls a share during tho first three months of 1972. This compares with firsi- (luarter earnings last year of or II. 1 cents a share. Cash flow amounted to M.OIIO or Hi.S cents a share, up from M.oiili.noo or 14.9 cents a share. Sales of crude oii and natural gas liquids were up 7.2 per cent to barrels a day and nat- ural pas sales were 2.3 per cent higher. Roger Garrity, head of the University of Manitoba man- power centre, says it should be a good summer with both agriculture and construction- related 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 the beginning of the sum- mer. Low 1371 unemployment fi- gures on the Prairies may be misleading since students helping out on the family farm w ere classed as em- ployed, but the situation in Saskatchewan looks good again this year. A SI.5 million provincial program will pay up to S150 i of a student's monthly salary j and the incentive is expected i to work. The provincial highways de- partment is one of Saskatche- wan's biggest single employ- ers and will hire about 250 tin's year. Alberta plans to double, at least, the number of summer workers hired by government departments, bringing the to- tal to Calgary's manpower centre says it should be a good year if job offers maintain their caiiv rate.
