The armed forces are con- siderihg such use of citizen soldiers as Gen. J. A. Dex- chief of defence moves to beef up the militia. An.armed forces spokesman said Friday that the forces are investigating whether reserve signallers could make up about 10 per cent of the com- municators Canada has sent to UNEF. But the general is looking further and wondering whether other reservists can take on other roles in Canada's UN peacekeeping commitments. Forces officials say that us- ing reserves would take some of the strain from regular un- its. With only men in the armed commitments that send men overseas for an indefinite time sometimes stretch forces per- sonnel a bit thin in Canada. COULD BE DIFFICULT The forces acknowledge that there could be difficulty in finding enough reservists who could take six months leave from their regular jobs to do a stint in Egypt or where Canada has large contingents.

Premiums for driving insur- which must be carried by each of the more than two million drivers in the will range from for basic coverage up to for those with bad driving records. Driver premiums will be based on the number of demerit points assessed against a driver for traffic infractions other than parking offences and which are main- tained by the B.C. motor vehi- cle branch Offences for which dement points are awarded include such things as failing to stop at a stop sign and speeding. The result is a driver caught for speeding on two or more occasions could find himself paying a penalty premium although he had an accident- free record Mr Bortnick said applica- tion forms for vehicle in- surance will be sent to all of the estimated 1.25 million vehicle owners in the province before the end of the year.

Grant vice- president of Unigard Mutual Insurance Company and a director of the Insurance Bueau of agreed that young drivers would pay con- siderably less under the new government plan but said it appeared many adult drivers would pay more.

Canadian reser- vists have been sent to West Germany and many of the other nationals in UNEF are- reservists. The idea is one of the plans of Gen. Dextraze to put more life into a reserve that has been generally neglected by government for some time. The general envisages the part-time sailors and airmen taking over many of the duties of the regulars. This could range from fulfilling part of Canada's NATO commitment to taking over some of the sovereignty protection work of the forces. Toe general has told report- ers he would'like increased pay scales for along with more up-to-date equipment and new uniforms.
