Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 11, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta PATRIOTIC DEMONSTRATION Schoolgirls wearing hats pointed with flogs and anti-communist slogans rally at a governmant-sponsored demonstration in Saigon. The estimated demonstrators were mostly Catholics. Welfare system changed FREDERICTON (CP) Wel- fare assistance for youths aged 16 to 21 years under changes in the New Brunswick welfare regulations can be provided at the discretion of regional direc- tors, a spokesman for the social services department said today. Changes in the regulations, which Social Services Minister Brenda Robertson said Thurs- day will come into effect almost immediately, are designed to cut down on abuses in the pro- gram. One section would make It virtually impossible for young people aged 16 to 21 to get as- sistance unless they were men- tally or physically handicapped. However, a departmenl spokesman said this morning "we're not inhumane." Assist- ance would be provided in some cases if the student had no means of support and was at- tending an approved institution, such as a high school or techni' cal college. It would also be given if the director felt the safety, growth or development of the youth was m danger. Financial aid for university students was already available under the Canada Student As- sistance Act and they would not ne-ddi welfare help, the spokes- man said.

"The department has been obligated in the past to pay back bills up to three months when a recipient came to us. We will no longer pay back bills." Mrs. Robertson said the main concern of the department was the unemployed. "We have been working on possible solutions to the unem- ployed employables and hope- fully within the next two weeks or so we will be able to come out with a new program specif- ically related to these people." SECRET NUMBER TEL AVIV (AP) The latest English language telephone director has come out in Israel with nine Moshe Dayans listed, under "D." There's Moshe Dayan the rabbi and Moshe Dayan the plumber, but nothing about Moshe Dayan the patctr- eyed defence minister. His num- ber is secret. Sabbath decision setl reveri EDMONTON (CP) Tire Al- berta Supreme Court of Ap- peals has reversed a decision which said a shopping centre could remain open Sundays. The appeals court said that the matter should be argued before the Supreme Court of Canada, not before the Alberta Court. The shopping centre Involved is the Boardwalk, a group of shops located in a renovated building in downtown Edmon- ton. Mr. Justice Harold Riley rul- ed in August that it was no longer a crime to work Sun- days for reasons other than mercy or necessity. He said a key section of the Lord's Day Act was outside the jurisdiction of criminal law. The appeal, launched by the attorney-general's department, rescinds Mr. Justice Riiey's ruling that the case was out- side the jurisdiction of provin- cial judge's court. The case now can be returned to that court. Telephone employees get raise EDMONTON (CP) Em- ployees of Alberta Government Telephones have signed a two- year contract for wage in- creases that will total almost 20 per cent to a peak of SI.017 a month for top-grade techni- cians. The top rate for janitors will be a month by May, 1973. A spokesman for the Interna- tional Brotherhood of Electri- cal Workers, bargaining agent for AGT's employees, said the agreement, retroactive to May 1 this year, provides In- creases of six per cent In the first year and eight per cent in the second. A four-per-cent pay boost, retroactive to Jan. I, also was accepted. Workers also won Increased expenses for out-of-town pro- jects. Saturday, Nrv.mltr 11, THI LtTHMIDGI HRAID- Bankrupt Laos badly mauled By PETEH O'LOUGHLIN VIENTIANE (AP) Laos, a tiny landlocked kingdom of 2.6 million people, entered the Indo- china war practically bankrupt and Is likely to finish that way. No one knows the exact fig- ure, but Americans estimate that something like gov- ernment troops have died in the last years of fighting. Losses on the pro-Communist Pathet Lao side are considerably less. There are about refu- gees from North Vietnamese shelling and U.S. bombing, and half of these are fed, housed and cared for by the U.S. gov- ernment. By almost any standards Laos is bankrupt. Eighty per cent of the population are rice farmers, but they don't grow enough to feed the country. Laos stays afloat militarily and economically because of Guts U.S. aid, which amounts to more than the country's J68B million yearly gross national product. Its exports totalled about million. Sandwiched between Vietnam and Thailand, with China and Cambodia on the north and south, Laos is the buffer state of Indochina and has been badly mauled.. ALWAYS A SIDESHOW The war in Laos has always been a sideshow to the main event In Vietnam. Accordingly a ceasefire in Vietnam is likely to be followed quickly by one in Laos. But a lasting political settle- ment is likely to take longer. The political differences be- tween Premier Prince Souvanna Phouma and his half-brother, Prince Souphanouvong, leader of the Pathet Lao, over the makeup of a post-war coalition government are deep and long lasting. They go back to 1956 and the first of two attempts to combine opposing neutralist, rightist and leftist faction into a workable government of national union. Souphanouvong walked out both times. Although Hanoi has never ad- mitted having troops in Laos, Souvanna, Phouma claims they have Tile American esti- mate is a lower. MOST GUARD TRAIL Most of them operate along and guard the Ho Chi Minh trail network, but of them are combat troops. Most of these are engaged inoperations around the Plain of Jars, 100 miles north of Vientiane. Few Laotians care strongly about either the Pathet Lao or the faction-ridden forces of Sou- vanna Phouma. Half the popula- tion is under government rule the other half under the Pathet Lao. but few have had say in where they wanted to be. The successful enforcement of any ceasefire and guarantee of the withdrawal of all foreign troops will be the key to peace, most diplomats say. Laotians have a Buddhist fa- talism about events that la summed up in the saying "Bo pen which loosely trans- lated means "It doesn't mat- ter." Rare bird dies SAN DIEGO, Calif.
