Bottle Litter Attacked By Jaycees GRANDE PRAIRIE (CP) Alberta Jaycees Monday asked the provincial government to make non-returnable beer and soft drink containers illegal. The resolution was approved at the Jaycees' annual conven- tion, attended by 180 delegates.

Armstrong's exit leaves only Aldrin of the Apollo 11 crew still in the astronaut corps. Collins left last year to become assist- ant secretary of state for public affairs in Washington. WEATHER AND ROAD REPORT Young Progressives Urge CLC Reforms By ROSEMARY SPEIRS EDMONTON (CP) Th. youthful reform caucus within the Canadian Labor Congres found some muscle Monda it wasn't clear 'ho1 much was padding. About 200 of the dele- gates attending the week-Ion 2LC convenion here turned ou at the first public meeting o ;he caucus for a lively discus stai of the young unionists Majestic Worsteds by Society Brand You are assured a touch of dis- tinction and an air of Internatlon- e! elegance as soon as you put orr a MAJESTIC WORSTED by Soci- ety Brand. The meticulous tailoring for which Society Brand is famous '3 Is applied to the world's finest wor- sleds. The result... a suit that will be the hit of your wardrobe. Try ona now. The DIFFERENCE Is Fashion men's UJERR eight-point program aimed a making the CLC a more pro gressive labor body. Earlier in the day, caucus members had said that if the) attracetd this big an audience i would prove there is widespreac discontent within the CLC are strong backing for their demand for immediate action on Can ada's social problems. But at least 20 of those attend ing the meeting were journalists .vert far from and several friendly: Jim Chepswlck of the Toronto Local 79 of the Canadian Union cf Public Employees said he wonders whether the reform caucus is really a selfless group of trade unionists or whether they are just preaching reform to promote their own leadership aspirations. CRITICIZES PROGRAM Harold Thayer, education director of the International As- sociation of Machinists, termed much of the program put for- ward by the caucus ''sheer non- sense." "We're already doing a good tob in the he said. "It is not necessary to set yourselves up as separate to the CLC lead- ership. What you are asking is nothing new. We already have However, most of the dele- fates didn't seem to agree with fir. Thayer. He sat down to shouts of "get out you fink." Andre Boeherman, a reform caucus member and a repre- sentative of the CUPE Local 000 in Toronto, said: ''The labor movement has ome money, some know-how nd many people skilled in tech- he argued. "What we vant to see is for the movement take co-ordinated action on some of our biggest social prob- lems.' The caucus was established about six months ago by a group of younger unionists led by Jolm Fryer, general secre- tary of the B.C. Government Employees' Association. Its 30 core members complain that the CLC habitually issues fine statements on social problems but does little to implement this verbal policy. The caucus program, distribu- ted to Monday's opening session of_ the convention, calls for guidelines on autonomy for the Canadian sections in U.S.-based unions, immediate establish- ment of CLC organizing teams to help the poor and native peo- ple and a more democratic sys- tem of plant management.
