Fifty-five of them will be of- fered clerical posts, an airline spokesman said in an interview. The employees are victims of a reorganization plan drawn up by a New York City manage- ment consultant team and ap- proved by Yves Pratte, chair- man of the board. The team recommended a new markeitng approach which would involve reducing and re- placing staff at all levels. The McKinsey Co. consultant team drew up a chart of all employees and another chart for the new management structure. The new chart con- tained 145 fewer jobs. Montreal, with the greatest concentration of Air Canada's while collar workers, is the most severely affected.

The integration of the larger community with the hostel leads to an experience which gives the traveller a view of the com- munity which he might not find otherwise. But, he said, if we encourage youth to become dependent upon welfare services, and put ourselves "in a network of ghet- tos, then we deny ourselves the opportunity to demonstrate to society in general that we are thoughtful, positive, concerned and capable. "It seems obvious that hostels must be run by the peer group, and according to local needs and balance. The detail of this is provided by the youth com- munity he said. The problems organizations face in accommodating tran- sient youth was the main dis- cussion topic among delegates at the three-day conference which ends today.

The defence secretary said the Russians do not normally operate the Caribbean with a task force of this makeup. He was referring to the inclusion of a guidcd-missile light cruiser and a guided-missile destroyer capable of firing surface-to-sur- face missiles with a range in excess of 200 miles. Laird said he was not trying to suggest that the missiles could be fired at land-based tar- gets; they were primarily de- signed for use against other ships.
