Phon. 327-6565 All workers must be older than 16 years and if younger than 18 years, must have written parental consent. Workers must have been a resident of Alberta for more than six months and the work must involve mixed farming or livestock operations. Normally, farmers may hire not more than two youths. Both fanners and workers must complete an application form with either the local dis- trict local rep resentative of the provincial department of culture, youth and recreation or the local agricultural manpower of- fice. The local Student Manpow- er offices will assist in find- ing suitable youths interested in farm employment. A travel allowance of eight cents per mile will be paid. Normally this is paid only one way. Under the guidelines of the Summer Temporary Employ- ment Program, the maximum; hours of work will be estab- lished between the farmer and worker before the start of the job. Workers must be given at least one day holiday per week. Statutory holidays are to be observed, or, time off with pay must be given in compensation of working a holiday. Because many young people will be introduced to farm work for the first time, the fanner is to make every rea- sonable effort to vary the farm jobs and experiences in order to provide a type of training on the job. This is to allow the young worker to determine whether or not he wants to pursue further ag- ricultural training. Farmers in Southern Al- berta contacted by The Her- ald this morning appeared lees than enthusiastic about the program. Dick Boulton, a dairy farm- er north of Lethbridge, ques- tioned the validity of using tax money to hire workers. "If a fellow wants work, there is no getting a he said. "If work has to be done, the farmer should pay the bill." George Jarokosky, a hog producer south of Lethbridge, said there definitely is a place on the farm, for inexperienced youlhs. He said the wage help program is a good deal for the farmer "if you can get the young people today to do any work." He said he wouldn't use any inexperienced person on his expensive equipment. C. H. Miller of Fort Mac- leod said such a program, wouldn't do him any good be- cause he hss machinery to do all the work at his farm. Bob Welsh of Fort Macleod said most of his farm opera- tion requires large imple- ments and experienced work- ers. Even his livestock opera- tion requires persons who know something about ani- mals, he said. His haying operation in the fall is about the only job in which he could use inexperi- enced workers, but through experience in past years, "they don't want to do any hard work." By WARREN CARAGATA Herald Staff Writer Canadian businessmen can- not be relied on to lead the movement for Canadian in- dependence from foreign cor- porate control, the national chairman of the Committee for an Independent Canada said Tuesday night. "The time is long past when the chamber of com- merce and the Canadian Manufacturers A s s o elation could lead an independence Mel Hurtig told members of the Lethbridge chapter of the CIC. He said Canadian banks are financing the further take-over of the Canadian economy with the savings ac- counts and pension funds which they control. Mr. Hurtig, an Edmonton publisher and a defeated Lib- eral candidate in the last fed- eral election, showed the au- dience an ad taken out by the Royal Bank in the Wall Street Journal which claims: "We deliver Canada." He also said the take-over of Ryerson Press, the coun- try's oldest publishing house, by McGraw Hill, an Ameri- can corporation, was fi- nanced with million from a Canadian bank. 'Great Canadian patriots' From 1960 to 1967, foreign ownership grew by bil- lion, but only 19 per cent of that came irom outside the 'country. The rest, Mr. Hurtig said, was raised from retain- ed earnings and from the Ca- nadian banks "these great Canadian patriots." "And for most of the last 20 years, Canada has been a substantial net exporter of capital." In what he called the "Tru- deau years'' (1968 to 1971) billion left the country in the form of dividends, management fees, interest, and other transfers. This, Mr. Hurtig said, is more "than all the capital that came into the country in the previous This capital drain is, in part, responsible for the high inflation and unemployment rates in Canada, he claimed. "If anyone tells you foreign ownership helps the country, they don't know what they're talking about." He criticized the" Liberal government for having the "colossal audacity" to bring in its screening agency as a mechanism for solving the foreign ownership problem after receiving the Gray re- port, the Watkins report, and the Wahn report, all of which stressed the seriousness of the situation. MEL HURTIG Screening process attacked Under the screening pro- cess "if every (take-over) ap- plication was turned down there would still be no re- search and development car- ried on in the country, there would still be a capital drain, and the growth of foreign in- vestment would be re- duced by 20 per Mr. Hurtig said. The trouble with Liberal and Conservative govern- ments, he suggested, is that they move only to appease public opinion while ignoring the basic problem. Mitchell Sharp, the federal minister of external affairs, publicly warns Canadians that our cultural heritage is endangered but in cabinet op- poses tough foreign take-over legislation, Mr. Hurtig said. When asked why he con- tinues to belong to the Lib- eral party, he quoted former cabinet minister Eric Kierans as saving "I haven't dropped the other shoe Mr. Kier- ans, who contested the fed- eral Liberal leadership in 1968, has written a preface for a book by NDP leader David Lewis and last winter prepared a report for the Manitoba NDP government advocating nationalization of that province's mineral in- dustry.

May 18th, 1973 For appointments Phone 328-2316 man said, agreeing with a statement made during the discussion that the Liberal party represented the con- tirientalist position iu Cana- dian politics. In response to a question, Mr. Hurtig said Canadians are giving their natural re- sources away. "We should stop using natural gas as an export commodity and use it to develop indigenous indus- try." He also took the baugheed government to task for its attempts to raise the rev- enues from oil and gas pro- duction, saying the increased profits to the petroleum in- dustry from a tactic such as forcing a higher well-head price for gas would be much greater than the increase in revenue to the provincial treasury. CIC elects executive A new slate of officers for the Lethbridge chapter of the Committee for an Indepen- dent Canada was elected Tuesday night at the organi- zation's annual meeting. The meeting, addressed by CIC national chairman Mel Hurtig, of Edmonton, unani- mously endorsed the candi- dates proposed by the nom- inations committee.
