Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 25, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta The Lethbtidije THIRD SECTION Lclhbridge, Alberta, Wednesday, November 25, 1971) PAGES 33-40 More graduates than jobs available in Canada not Ify IAN' POUTKK OTTAWA (CP) The 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 business administration, com- merce and commercial account- ing. The estimated demand for en- gineers in 1970 has risen by what would appear (o be a healthy 12 per cent. Gradua- tions, however, increased by but a manpower publication 15 4 cent soon to be released shows that morc serious situation has the requirements of large na- developed for science lional employers increased from 1363 by only 3.4 per cent. "This contrasts with an in- crease of 10 per cent in the size of the graduating class over Hie same says the publica- tion, called Supply and Demand. Canada produced about university graduates this year, about of them at the post- graduate level. Graduations in 1971 are expected to increase at gi-ads.

Sucli 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 and 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. Rutledge, executive director of the University and College Career Planning Asso- ciation, agrees that "most of the arts people are in the same really not trained for anything." "Teaching is beginning to dry up and industry hasn't room for Ihem." HELPS TO BE PRACTICAL In other courses, Mr. Ru- Uedge says, undergraduates are sent out for on-lhe-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 tho arts gradu- ates." ;7ut this year's figures indi- cate that even the practical- minded have not escaped the ef- of economic slowdown, apart, perhaps, for graduates in his position as party leader which is less secure since the Nationalists lost nine seats in an April general election and six in October provincial elections. One way to regain support foi Ms party is by speeding up implementation of self-govern ing various tribes of South Africa's non-white population. That's the ultimate goal of apartheid, sep aration of tile 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- peeled that diplomatic relation: will he entered into with new states." SEEKS TIES He did not specify which states, but the govemmen makes no secret of its ambition to establish ties with black Afri- can states. On Nov. 4, President Felix Houphouet-Boigny of the Ivorj Coast said he favors a policy ol negotiation pd 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 For- eign Minister Hilgard Muller said recent statements by Afri- can leaders about his country showed an increasing realism and the emergency of a new spirit in the continent. under fire, especially from ex- treme right-wingers, for his "outward-looking" policy of winning friends in black Africa. Now this policy seems lo be paying increasing dividends. South Africa has diplomatic relations with Malawi, and other ties with Lesotho, Swazi- land 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. South Africa's first bantustan. Uie Transkei, was given partial self-government in 1963.
