Australian technical mis- sions soon will fan out through Asia, evaluating technical training programs to help im- migration officers select blue- collar Asians who can contribute to the Australian economy. Those selected will receive travel and resettlement sub- sidies if they need first time that substantial numbers of Asians will be eli- gible for the kind of financial help received for years by im- migrants from mainly white countries: The effect of the missions will be to increase the propor- tion of blue-collar Asian im- migrants and to advance fur- ther the Labor government's campaign to end racism in im- migration procedures and make individual merit the only yardstick for migrants. The total number of immi- grants accepted each year is likely to keep declining, how- ever, as job vacancies in Aus- tralia get scarcer: The first group of subsi- dized blue-collar Asians began arriving from the Philippines Aug. 21, Their number will reach 100 by the end of No- vembej. "I came to see Australian technology work and earn a better said An- tonio Rodrigues, one of the first Filipinos to arrive. Within days, he had a job as an auto mechanic: Bernadito Blacaflor, who immigrated along with his wife and their three-year-old daughter, is also a mechanic and says he is contented with his job. "The supervisor helps me with directions and if I work overtime he gives me a ride he said. "I have never experienced that in my home country." The Filipino im- migrants can expect basic wages in Australia of about a week, compared to a month at home. A spokesman for the de- partment of labor and immi- gration in Canberra said tech- nical missions soon will "go right round the line of Asian countries. "A similar mission is at work in Latin America. The blue-collar workers will join a substantial Asian com- munity already in Australia despite the color bars of the past. In 1971 there were 000. Asian-born residents out of a total population of 12.7 million; many of them doc- tors, scientists and other fessionals who paid their own way. There are second-and third- generation Asians as well, and many of the thousands of Asian- students studying at Australian universities re- main in the country after com- pleting their education. Although Prime Minister Gough Whitlam and the Labor government put the axe to the white-Australia policy with unprecedented enthusiasm, the policy had in fact been eb- bing away for years. More of an attitude than a law, it sprang up after the Australian gold rushes of the 19th century attracted thou- sands of Chinese laborers whom white Australians per- ceived as threats to their jobs and racial homogeneity. It continued until well after the Second World the Australians decided to ad- mit non-Europeans and people of mixed blood every no financial aid. Whitlam announced the end of the white-Australia policy in January 1973. The admission of a substan- tial proportion of Asian blue- collar workers with financial aid will eliminate the last for- mal distinctions between white and Asian immigrants. Stranded pilot fined for leaving carcass of buffalo to spoil HAY RIVER, N.W.T. (CP) A Hay River man has been fined for leaving the car- cass of a buffalo to spoil after shooting the animal to ensure adequate food for himself and two other men stranded in the bush. Chuck Howdle, charged with violating the Game Act, was the pilot of a single-en- gine plane that crashed Oct. 11 while on a sightseeing trip from Hay River. He and his two Edmonton passengers were uninjured in .the crash. Court was told that during the night a light snow fell and the temperature dropped to 25 degrees. Returning to the downed plane the next day to turn on the radio beacon, Howdle spotted the buffalo. Howdle, worried about chances of a quick rescue, shot the buffalo, cut 25 pounds of meat from it and cooked it back at camp. Two hours after eating the meat, they were rescued by a pilot who picked up the radio beacon signal. They left ev- erything at the crash site ex- cept a gun, axe and knife. Their gear was retrieved several days later but the buf- falo carcass was left behind.
