CAREERS By STEPHEN SCOTT OTTAWA (CP) A Com- mons committee heard again Tuesday of the sufferings of men who survived imprison- ment by the Japanese in Hong Kong during the Second World War and renewed a plea for a better break for them. The veterans affairs com- mittee unanimously voted to ask the government to increase pensions to those veterans, especially those un- able to work. The Hong Kong Veterans Association of Canada said in a brief that the situation in- volving these veterans of the "hell holes" and concentra- tion camps on the island 29 years ago is such that even the relatively generous treatment of the government to date is not enough The brief, accompanied by medical evidence on the effects of such things as vitamin deficiency and stress which lead to heart trouble, arthritis and premature aging, said: "The Hong Kong veterans were subjected to such harsh physical treatment, severe mental stress, it is only reasonable to state to this day these men still suffer from the effects of their prolonged internment." The government already has acknowledged the special position of these veterans, now about in number, and all receive at least a SO per cent disability pension. That amounts to about a month for a single man and for a married man without children. NEED SEEN The association said that is not enough and the committee agreed that all Hong Kong vet- erans who are unable to work should receive 100 per cent disability. Traffic fatality count up EDMONTON (CP) The Alberta Safety Council today said there were 351 people killed in traffic accidents to the end of August this year compared with 321 during the same eight months of 1973. an increase of nine per cent However, the fatality count for August showed 75 deaths in traffic, an increase of 85 5 per cent compared with the 40 deaths daring the same month last year. Paul Lawrence, council general manager, said July was a "shocker" at 67 deaths. "Yet we went out and broke that all-time high with ap- parent little difficulty and plenty of determination Mr Lawrence said motorists show a "complete disregard for basic concepts of safe driving sense and know how." The number of injuries dur- ing the first eight months this year dropped 11 per cent to 583 but property damage increased bv million. The committee approved such a motion proposed by Jack Marshall (PC-Humber- St. George's-St. seconded by Joseph Guay Boniface) and con- curred in by Stanley Knowles South Centre) The committee passed a similar motion last spring. Veterans Affairs Minister Dan MacDonald told associa- tion president C. P Brady of Otterburn Heights, Que., and other members that the government will closely con- sider their brief. Figures given by pension officials and association members show that of the about sent to Hong Kong, 30 per cent died there, 25 per cent died since the Second World War, 25 per cent are alive but unable to work and 20 per cent now are as a veritable act of charity by employers. Of the about 500 still working, about half are suffer- ing from arthritis or heart trouble. Many of these cannot hold positions of responsibility because of the stress, and many face early retirement. The bnef said those who are able to work find promotions are limited and some of their members have been fired. Those involved in manual labor are the hardest hit, the bnef said. "Let's face it, this is the legacy left our men to live with daily, the residual effects of starvation, abetted by brutal forced slave labor, physical violence, inadequate clothing and shelter, for an agonizing 44 months. "To this day not one Hong Kong veteran has been cured of malnutrition." OPENING FOR ACCOUNTANT Johnson Brothers Sawmills Ltd. need an accountant to start November 1st, 1974.
