Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 16, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 32 THE UTHBRIGGE HERALD Wednesday, May 16, 1973 Standing tall Jockey Johnny Longden gave himself .a boost with the help of a wooden box while addressing the annual Kinsmen sports celebrity gathering in Edmonton. The famed jockey hails from Taber, Alfa. moty rants OTTAWA (CP) New gov- ernment mobility grants to as- sist unemployed people relocate j penalize self-starters, Charles I Thomas told the Commons manpower committee Tuesday. Canada Manpower mobility regulations don't go isr enough in helping people in isolated i areas move themselves without j the help of a manpower office, I he said. I The new regulations, an- j trounced by Manpower Minister j Robert Andras in the com-1 mittee, provide a S13-a-day liv- ing allowance for a maximum of five days to people seeking work in other areas. Previous regulations allowed a week for up to four weeks. The present S500 allowance for purchasing a home in the new area will be increased to A allowance, pre- viously paid for the sale of the worker's home, will be dis- continued. The new regulations, Mr. An- dras said, will give greater sup- port to job-hunters during a more concentrated period of time. Home allowances would help people who didn't qualify for the previous home- owners' allowance. Special travel grants to allow workers to travel to the nearest manpower office for testing and counselling also were an- nounced. These are identical to the living allowance for five days. Workers with no dependents and earning a year or more no longer will qualify for moving assistance. Workers earning a year or more with dependents also will be cut off. J. L. Manion, assistant deputy j manpower minister, told Gor- don Ritchie that grants are for moves to the nearest available job. A man who opted to take a job miles away wouldn't qualify if there was an equally suitable job available closer. The department will not sub- sidize moves to more distant points so an individual can be closer to friends or family, Mr. Manion said. During the 1972-73 fiscal year, the government spent 982 on its job mobility program. The program also covers ex- penses incurred in moving to an area for training in a Canada Manpower program. Foreign assistance plan rewritten OTTAWA (CP) gov- ernment is reducing its buy-Ca- nadian requirements in foreign- aid programs, but. sees impor- tant political benefits in retain- ing them, External Affairs Min- ister Mitchell Sharp said Tues- day. Ke told the Commons ex- ternal affairs committee the im- pact of tied aid is being reduced partly because a higher propor- tion of aid is being channeleld through multinational agencies, which do not have tied aid pro- visions. Figures in the annual report the Canadian International Development Agency show that multilateral aid in 1572-73 amounted to about 26 per cent of total allocations. The propor- tion in 1S71-72 was about 22 per cent. Under the ticd-airl regu- lations, recipient countries must buy two-thirds of poods and serviceb acquired with Cana- dian aid in Canada. The rule has been criticized as an unfair and costly restric- tion on poor countries' pur- chases. EASE REGULATIONS Mr. Sharp told the committee the impact of the regulation also has been lightened by al- j lowing recipients to buy more j goods and services from other developing countries. He said the required Cana- dian content enables Canadians visiting recipient countries to identify with the government's aid program. That helped main- tain public support for the pro- gram. Taxpayers might balk at fi- nancing an aid system that pro- vided funds that recipients could spend in the U.S., for ex- ample. Allocations for the present fis- cal year are projected at S365 million, compared to mil- lion in In any case, Mr, Sharp said, the dimensions of the tied-aid issue are exaggerated. _ j THURSDAY, FRIDAY, MAY 17, 18, 19 FABRIC SALE ill 11NTED CR1MPKN1T -Machine washable -Assorted Florals -Reg. 5.96 per yard SPECIAL, YARD PERCALE PRINTS -100% cotton -Cdorfssf -IdeaS for quilts -Reg. 2 yards 1.00 SPECIAL PRINTED AND PLAIN -45" wide -Colorlast -Reg. 2.96 per yard SPECIAL, YARD -65% Polyester, 45% Rayon -Washable -Navy, white, pink, blue, beige -Reg, 4.96 per yard SPECIAL, YARD...... -Washable -Cobrfast -Reg. per yard SPECIAL, YARD X 'N1 MATC! -70" wide -Plains and Patterns -Washable -Reg. 5.96 per yard SPECIAL, YARD ASSORTED COLORS 45" Wide SPECIAL, yard 60" Wide SPECIAL, yard 1.66 110" Wide SPECIAL, yard 2.96 ACETATE AND POLYESTER fj -Washable -CoSorfast -Ideal for Dresses, Blouses, etc. -Reg. 2.96 per yard SPECIAL, YARD...... -Printed -Machine washable -Colorfast -Reg. 1.77 per yard SPECIAL, YARD ASSORTED SPRING Seersuckers and Doub! -60" wide -Washable -Colorfast -Reg. 3.96 per yard SPECIAL, YARD Knits V Satisfaction Guaranteed!
