Others included Captains Cook and Bougainville, Fletcher Chris- tian, Robert Louis Stevenson, Henry Adams, Paul Gauguin, Somerset Maugham, Nordhoff and Hall, James Michener. The lure of Tahiti affects plain citizens, too, and in in- creasing numbers because of the advent of jet travel. In 1958, only 840 tourists came here by air. In 1969 they num- bered by air.

Phone 327-4627 Italian immigrants return to homeland MONTREAL (CP) A large number of Italians in (he Greater Montreal area, perhaps as many as re- turned to their homeland in the last three years, says pub- lisher and travel agent Nick Ciamarra, a native of Italy and a Canadian resident Tor 20 years. The main reason, he said in an interview, is economic inst- ability in Quebec. "Unemployment is a great factor in the move back to Italy since an immigrant sim- ply cannot afford to wait raonilis and even years before getting a suitable he added. "Quebec has the highest un- employment rate in Canada End if an immigrant can- not see the possibility of get- ting work ha least 5.009 of them back to Italy since and 1 don't know the rate of flow in other direc- tions.1' M r. Cianiarra, publisher and editor of the Italian weakly n Cittadino Canadese, said difficulties of integrating in Quebec society also dis- courage immigrants. HARD TO PENETRATE "There are loug-existcnt barriers in Quebec society which certainly create inte- gration difficulties. "The English and French societies here are so closely knit aaiong themselves that it is bard to penetrate unless one is fluent in both lan- guages. "And the current straggle between the French and Eng- lish does have a bearing on the issue. However, this is not the main reason for many Italians going back to their homeland." Mr, Ciamarra said Italians come to Quebec mainly to boost their economic standing. "They are not interested in the social struggle. "Tlie social straggle here is beyond their needs and they look at it hi a detached man- ner unless they are forced to participate, it's simply not their fight." Mr. Ciamar- ra's estimate of 5.0CQ immi- grants returning to Italy was reached by comparing figures of 10 travel agencies serving Montreal's Italian pop- ulation. PERCENTAGE SMALL In his agency alone there were 500 persons applying for Universities board names students OTTAWA (CP) For the first time in its 59-year history, the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada has elected students to its board, it was announced today. The students are Colleen I Mr.Guiffliess, president of the Brandon University students union, Waye Yared, president of the graduate student society at the University of Windsor, and Norman Wickstrom, presi- det of the Simon Fraser stu- dent society. Davidson Dunton, president of Carleton University, is the asso- ciation's new president. He suc- ceeds Roger Gaudry, rector of the University of Montreal, The new vice president is Louis Philippe Bonneau, vice- rector of Laval University. The association is a voluntary' organization of institutions of higher education and is sup- ported by their membership fees. one-way fares back to Italy during the last three years, "The other agencies re- ported approximately Hie same number." Although seemingly high, the three-year figure is only about per cent of the city's Italian population. There really isn't a great: drawing force attracting these people back to Italy "but if they have to struggle, it's much better to struggle in one's own said Mr. Ciamarra. A native of Campobasso, Italy, a city of south of Rome, Mr. Ciamarra said im- migrants to Quebec often have a feeling of "non-beloag- ing." "The immigrant feels a great sense of civic emptiness when he cannot communicate with elected officials. "The immigrant is a third element here, and once alien- ated by language, cultural and social barriers, he just doesn't give a damn any more. This isn't very healthy." MUST WASH DISHES Mr. Ciamarra also blames immigration policies for cre- ating a false impression about certain areas of Canada. "People are lured here under false pretences. Quali- fied professionals soon find themselves washing dishes while waiting for that job that seemed so real back in their native country. "Even when an Immigrant does get a job, and sometimes over an equally qualified Ca- nadian, he is usually given less pay than the norm. "Many who aspire to be- coming Canadians and sel- tling here .suddenly feel they are just transplanted Italians with little hope of ever becom- ing an integral part of this society."
