Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 25, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta The Lethlnidije THIRD SECTION Lelhbridgc, Alberta, Wednesday, November 25, 1971) PACES 33-40 More graduates than jobs available in Canada Economy is not absorbin By IAN' I'OKTKK OTTAWA (CP) Tlio Cana- dian economy appears increas- ingly unable lo absorb Hie ac- quired skills of thousands of uni- versity and college graduates. Data for 1970 is still "sparse but a manpower publication soon to be released shows that the requirements of large na- tional employers increased from 1963 by only 3.4 per cent. "This contrasts with an in- crease of 10 per cent in the size of the graduating class over the same says the publica- tion, called Supply and Demand. Canada produced about university graduates this year, about of thorn at the post- graduate level. Graduations in OT1 are expected to increase at a slightly lower rate but will still reach an estimated with a higher master's or doctor's degrees. Community colleges, which do not grant degrees, will graduate an estimated this year and more than in 1971. Such figures add up to a highly competitive search by graduates for jobs related their field of studies. For many this year, the economic slow- down has brought a fall from a favored status in the job mar- ket. DEMAND IS DOWN The manpower report shows a decline in demand of between 15 ai'.d 30 per cent for pass and honors graduates in arts and science. For graduates with master's degrees, the drop in demand was 20 per cent and for holders of the doctorate, 25 per cent. Many experts suggest that those graduating from the glut- ted fields of literature, the so- cial sciences and psychology have made impractical choices for future employment. A general self-improvement education is just not very mar- says Dr. Miles Wisen- thal, director of the education division in the Dominion Bureau of Statistics. W. H. Rulledge, executive director of the University and College Career Planning Asso- ciation, agrees that "most of ihe arts people are in the same really not trained for anything." "Teaching is beginning to dry up and industry hasn't room for them." HELPS TO BE PRACTICAL In other courses, Mr. Hu- ll edge says, undergraduates are srni out for on-the-job training to go with their classroom edu- cation. When they graduate, such "practical-minded youngs- ters haven't got the job-finding problems of the arts gradu-" ;'ut this year's figures indi- cate that even the practical- minded have not escaped the ef- ffl.; of economic slowdown, apart, perhaps, for graduates in business administration, com- merce and commercial account- ing. The estimated demand for en- gineers in 1970 has risen by what would appear to be a healthy 12 per cent. Gradua- tions, however, increased by 15.4 per cent. A more serious situation has already developed for science grads. Over-all, the demand for those with a doctoral degree has dropped by an estimated 22 per cent this year. Reviewing the probabilities, Dr. A. D. Boyd of the Science Council of Canada says that hir- ing for research and develop- ment in private industry for the next two years will be on a re- placement basis, with perhaps even fewer scientists being hired than retire. New physicists, chemists and biochemists will be those most directly affected in the weaken- ing research field, along with engineers, Dr. Boyd says. The main exceptions will be geolo- gists, geophysicists and others in the earth sciences, largely in I connection with oil exploration in the north. Such a review leaves out of consideration community col- lege graduates. Often better trained for a spe- cific job than their university counterparts, community col- lege graduates are being em- ployed in many positions for- merly filled by degree-holders. Consolidation! as party leader sought. Vorster plans popularity JOHANNESBURG (Heuter) Shaken by election losses which have reduced his ruling Nationalist party to its lowest point in 22 years of power, South Africa's Prime Minister John Vorster appears ready for a drive to win popularity. Vorster, 45, must consolidate his position as party leader, which is less secure since the Nationalists lost nine seals in an April general election and six in October provincial elections. One way to regain support for his party is by speeding up the implementation of self-govern- ing various tribes of South Africa's non-white population. That's the ultimate goal of apartheid, sep- aration of the races. Vorster also will want to make fresh efforts to establish diplomatic or trade ties with more black African states. This task seems easier to achieve than the domestic one. Vorster said in a radio broad- cast: "Better relations with other countries enjoy high prior- ity and it can therefore be ex- pected that diplomatic relations will be entered into with new states." SEEKS TIES He did not specify which states, but the government makes no secret of its ambition to establish ties with black Afri- can states. On Nov. 4, President Felix Houphouet-Boigny of the Ivory Coast said he favors a policy of negotiation and dialogue with South Africa, while Foreign Minister Arsene Usher Assouan said that the human problem posed by apartheid in South Af- rica should be solved by peace- ful means. The Ivory Coast president, speaking to foreign journalists in Abidjan, also proposed a meeting of the 41-nation Organi- zation of African Unity to dis- cuss apartheid in South Africa. He said what his country rec- ommends is a policy of negotia- tion and dialogue with South Af- rica "which does not necessar- ily lead to political recognition of the South African regime." His words were immediately applauded by President Phili- bert Tsiranana of the Malagasy Republic, who also advocates a policy of discussion and persua- sion with South Africa.

On Nov. 5, South African Foreign Minister Hilgard Muller said recent statements by African leaders about his country showed an increasing realism and the emergency of a new spirit in the the past Vorster Has been under fire, especially from extreme right-wingers, for his "outward-looking" policy of winning friends in black Africa. Now this policy seems lo be paying increasing dividends. Soutli Africa has diplomatic relations with Malawi, and other ties with Lesotho, and Botswana, as well as Malagasy. The task of speeding up the development of the African "homelands" within the country remains South Africa's most daunting problem.
