Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 23, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta IS NEW YORK A DYING CITY? Not on your life, book says B.T MURRAY SCIIUMACII New York Times Service NEW YORK A group of Columbia University social sci- entists, afler delving into the p-oblems of New York City and predictions of its approaching has produced a book, bolstered with statistics and his- torical perspeclive, that insists the city has a bright future. Dr. Eli Ginzburg, and mem- bers of his staff at Columbia's Conservation of Human Re- sources Project, afler brooding over the city's crime in the steels, mountainous wclf are problems, deteriorating hous- ing, middle class exodus to thn suburbs. nf jobs and el h n i c and racial tensions, found even more important "countervailing" factors and concluded: "New York City is very much alive, although other cities sv.A the suburbs have been able lo snip off its valuable assets." The book, called "New York Is Very Much Alive; A Man- power View." does not attempt In minimize the seriousness, even the dangers, of the city's problems. But it insists: "In perspective, the impressive point is that New York is thriv- ing as an economic center and Is well on the way to absorbing effectively its vastly expanded minority population which now accounts for approximately one in three. The effective accom- modation of newcomers is nev- er easy, but over several other centuries New York City has demonstrated a special capacity for effective accommodations. There is good reason to hope that the seventies will be an easier decade than the sixties." Among the highlights in ihe book, to be published by Mc- Graw Kill early next year are these: employment in ths city dropped in 1970 and 1971. the rate has slowed and much of Ihe decline was due lo the national reces s i o n. Reviewed over a decade, there has been a net gain of C9.000 jobs in New York. loss of jobs has been mainly in low paying manu- facturing fields that have lim- iletl futures for employees. There has been a greater gain in Ihe city in such growing fields as computers, banking, her.llh and communications; growth, which has tapped the city, has slowed sub- stantially and is now not only encountering the same prob- lems of crime, welfare and eth- nic conflict but also is faced with the added problem of sprau'l. despile ils eiio-- mous cost, has produced an im- portant social by product be- cause larger welfare allotments mean that many children will gmv up in good health: is being made in public and privale manpower training and in tying educalion vilh work. "The long run trend for the New York economy." says the book, "is one of expansion rath- er than decline." The volume which. In sum- mary form, is to be the entire i.ssue of the city almanac, a bi- monthly of the school's center for New York City af- fairs makes the following recommendations to speed the city's growth: among govern- ment, business, industry and community planning boards for bel'.er planning and for coping with tiny hut highly vocal groups that sometimes block projects that are important lo the city's economic health and desired by the vast majority. of a well- staffed manpower agency (o utilize human talents and to co- ordinate private and govern- ment seoton in this field; and deeper commit- ment by the public to prevent neighborh o o d deterioration, combat street crime and sup- port environmental work; of policy gam- bling and prostitution, estimat- ed lo employ pe-haps people, as means of reducing street crimes; of programs to rehabilitate drug addicts On the debit side, the book particularly notes the relation- ship economic health and street crime. ''From the vantage of long- term perspective." said the 309- page hook, "the more serious challenges that New York faces ave lo find the capital re- sources with which to renew its asing infra structure, particu- larly its critically impotant in- tra urban public transportation system and Lo control the growth of illicit and illegal oper- ations that extract a heavy loll both in economic and human terms. A metropolis in which people are afraid to venture forth in the evening is in jeo- pardy But the book is much more optimistic in evalua ting the city's ability to hold corporate headquarters and to withstand the challenge of the suburbs and of other cities. In 1970, the book notes. 118 of the 500 largest industrial firms and 44 of the 250 largest non- industrial organiza 11 o n s had I h e ir headquarters in New York. Since then 20 have indi- cated their intention lo move. But. says the book, there is no way of knowing, how many may be planning, as did Norton Si- mon, Atlantic-Richfield Andumc Industries, to move to city. "From a competitive point of view, says the book, "it Is unlikely thai New York will suffer serious losses as result of employers opting to locate or expand elsewhere." -----Thvrtdov, 11, THE LETHMIDGE HHALD 17 It's the latest: rent-a-dog HALIFAX (CP) Beware thieves, vandals and doers of evil deeds. Renl-A-Dog is here. Ted Kirk of nearby Lower Sackville, owner of Guardraas- ter Kennels, and a guard dog trainer for the last 15 years, now has 10 Doberman-Pinschcrs trained to protect warehouses and industrial premises from theft, vandalism and unsolicited I entrants. And nine pups are in j training to be added to the coips. Autoporl, a massive multi- million-dollar automobile hand-1 ling facility at nearby Eastern Passage, stores some new import automobiles in a com- pound surrounded by a wire would-be gold mine for thieves. Auloport management ex- pressed interest in 1972 hi rent- ing dogs from Mr. Kirk and there have been no losses re- ported at since the dogs began their vigil. Six dogs guard the operation. Before the contracl with Auto- port, Mr. Kirk said he had been sending his dogs to the United States "where the demand lor trained guard dogs is fantas- tic." "I have received numerous In- quiries for the dogs since they began at Autoport, but have no other customers yet."
