Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 21, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, November 21, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 13 Community job plan announced OTTAWA (CP) The joint federal-provincial community employment program, designed to help the chronically-jobless, will be launched through 20 pilot projects before the end of March, Manpower Minister Robert Andras said Wednesday. Mr. Andras, speaking at a news conference at the conclusion of a federal-provincial welfare ministers' conference, said the federal government has pledged million for the projects in the fiscal year 1974-75, which ends March 31. Mr. Andras said he hopes the federal and provincial govern- ments will reach agreement on location of the pilot projects within a few weeks. A summary of work on the community employment program was presented to the ministers on the second day of their closed two-day meeting. Mr. Andras said the government is ready to launch a three- year developmental stage and has made substantial progress in lining up job opportunities for the chronically jobless. He said the pilot project phase would be a learning process for all. Mr. Andras said he hopes that in communities where the pilot projects are located, new ways can be explored to make more productive use of funds spent on unemployment insurance. The test projects will be designed to assist people in devel- oping skills and to help employers adapt to provide jobs, a com- munique from the ministers said. Options reduced The ministers had already agreed Tuesday to reduce the number of options for a revision of the social security system. The proposed new pattern would provide the poor with a basic income level. The total estimated cost of income maintenance programs- including unemployment insurance, old-age security, family allowances, Canada Pension Plan and other be billion in the fiscal year which ends next March. The three options that remain are a guaranteed basic income system, an income supplementation and support system for the working poor and unemployable persons and a tax credit system. One of those options, or a combination of them, could be evolved into a as early as next en- sure the poor of a basic income level. Once a pattern is set out, the thorny questions of financing will have to be settled. The ministers have agreed that the levels of income support under all the options may vary across the country, depending upon living costs and social needs. Welfare Minister Marc Lalonde said at the close of the conference that he expected an agreement would be reached on a single formula acceptable to all provinces. The three remain- ing options would leave room for flexibility, he said. The ministers will still aim for completion of their review by early April, he added. "That's not cast in stone and if we reach April and the monu- ment isn't finished, we won't drop our tools and go on a holi- Mr. Lalonde said. No Russian aircraft over Suspended northern flights re-instated ROBERT ANDRAS University bribe offer disclosed EDMONTON (CP) Max Wyman, former University of Alberta president, says he was offered during his term by the parent of a stu- dent applying to the univer- sity's faculty of medicine. Dr. Wyman said in an inter- view the offer was not accepted by the university. He sard it came from a person outside the province, but he would not give the in- dividuals name or hometown. The student was not ad- mitted to the faculty, which admits only a limited number of students each year because of enrolment restrictions. Dr. Wyman said he does not think bribe offers are a problem in the university's nine quota faculties, and that in his five years as president he only knew of the one offer. The former president said a greater problem was public anger over the quota system. They feel its an illogical system and that the university can and should do better. Therefore, we get hostility toward the university because of the quota system. ANTICIPATED DELAY? Peking Station in China has waiting rooms capable of holding persons. By STEPHEN SCOTT OTTAWA (CP) In an ap- parent about-face, defence Minister James Richardson announced Wednesday that suspended northern sovereignty flights will be re- instated next month. He told the Commons there will be flights over the vast, potentially-rich High Arctic in December and January. However, speaking to reporters later, he did not commit the armed forces to flights past January. Mr. Richardson said Tues- day that the flights, used to demonstrate Canada's claim to its northern territories, were suspended and might be resumed as early as the New Year. The last flight was Sept. 22- The suspension was made necessary by the spending squeeze that has cut by 30 per cent the operations of Maritime Command, which makes the sovereignty flights. The minister was pressed on the matter Wednesday by Pat- rick Nowlan Valley) and Donald Munro Mr. Nowlan, noting Mr. Richardson also announced reductions in air patrols off the coasts Tuesday, asked Prirqe Minister Trudeau whether the armed forces top priority remains defence of sovereignty. Mr. Trudeau said the prior- ities are unchanged and the forces are doing their best to fulfil them. Outside the Commons, Mr. Nowlan. re-iterated statements that government is not doing properly its job of policing and protecting sovereignty. Without Cana- dian presence in the North, the Americans or the Russians would move in. Mr. Richardson..the "silent should do more to overcome the downgrading of the armed forces by the Liberal cabinet, said Mr. Nowlan. Meanwhile, the minister stated flatly in answer to questions by Mr. Nowlan that there have been no incursions by Russian aircraft over Canadian territory. Outside the Commons, Mr. Richardson said that up until a year ago Russian aircraft had flown into the Canada's air de- fence identification zone, which stretches 250 miles off the Canadian coasts. But there had been no such incur- sions by Russian Bear four- engine bombers in the last year. There also was no evidence that Soviet nuclear sub- marines sailed under Cana- dian ice. He was responding to a CBC radio broadcast saying that such incursions have taken place. Meanwhile, a new protest the constraints that the forces are working under be- cause of inflation came to light The Conference of Defence Associations, a grouping of r'e- strve and active forces associations, called for a meeting with the minister to discuss the state of the forces and "to express concern" about proposed manpower reductions. The statement said the forces "are not like private business to be reconstructed, remodelled, liquidated and refloated from year to year as the money market fluc- tuates." "If the forces are neglected they will wither and the professionalism so carefully built up over many generations will be lost... "We owe it to the leaders and to the men they command in peace and in war that their high standards will be main- tained and that their defined tasks will be carried out with- out hazard because of in- adequate equipment or un- realistic doctrines "Canadians must all face the fact that peace can only be safeguarded by sacrifice. strength, courage and fore- sight."

For 1975, we set out to improve a car that had become one of the three best-selling cars in the world. And to offer more car tor less money than our competitors. We did it. TOTALLY NEW. TOTALLY BEAUTIFUL. TOTALLY TOUGH. We've made the 1975 Toyota Corolla more enjoyable, to drive. We've made it more impressive to look at. We've made it easier to start and easier to live with in winter. Ihe loyota Corolla is slightly longer than last year's model. It has a Ionizer w hcclbase ami wider stance. It has more more legroom, more shoulder room, more room in the tnnik and .1 larger We added more standard equipment, modified the com- bustion chamber and changed the compression ratio to get even better performance from Corolla's rally-proven 1200 and 1600cc engines. And we wrapped it all up in a tough little body that's also the most beautiful Corolla vet. THAN This price difference is based on the manufacturer's suggested list price for the low- est priced Pinto compared with the lowest priced Corolla, at the time of publication. We have 8 Corolla models for you toclioose from. And ourprice includes many standard features which are either optional or simply unavailable on Pinto. Power trout disc brakes, an electric rear window- defroster and reclining bucket seats, to name just a few.

And keep in mind all the equipment that's included in our price which you might have to pay extra tor on Vega.
