Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 5, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Jolurday, Soplembcr 5, 1970 THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID 15 Various Functions Planned To End Summer Activities Canadians To Mark Labor Day Holiday Weekend In TraditionalFashion By THIS CANADIAN IMIESS Canadians will celebrate Labor Day this year with tradi- tional parades, concerts and spmis events, and speeches. But for many the annual observance will mean death on the road. The Monday holiday, although hot the last day of summer, is considered to mark the end of summer activities. It is the last day for Man and his World in Montreal, the Ca- nadian National Exhibition in Toronto, the daily changing of the guard at Ottawa, and sum- mer vacation for school chil- dren. One of the three days of the holiday weekend will also be the last day of life for about 70 per- RIPLEY OPTICAL DISPENSING OPTICIAN "Where service means serving people" 618 3rd Ave. S. PHONE 328-7626 sons expected to die on high- ways, says the Canada Safety Council. Many more will die in drownings, fires and other acci- dents. Last Labor Day weekend 112 died accidentally, 82 in traffic. The council based its prediction of 12 fewer road deaths this year on the fact that key high- ways have been improved and death tolls this summer have been generally lower. Stay-at-homes can spend most of Labor Day watching Cana- dian Football League games on television.

Canada's labor force now numbers 8.8 million, of which were unemployed in Au- gust and Labor Day messages from Canadian political and labor leaders this year were pre-occupied with the bitterness of union-management relations. Centres planning traditional parades by labor organizations include Buchans, Nfld., Quebec, Toronto and Hamilton. In Newfoundland, few organ- ized celebrations were planned other than the parade at Buch- ans, a central mining town. An RCMP spokesman said highway patrols will conduct 24-hour ve- hicle checks "to remind people this is one of the worst weekend for accidents and fatalities." In Nova Scotia, Labor Day will be observed against the background of one of the prov- ince's bitterest labor the five-month strike by 250 east-coast trawlermen. Bus companies, railways and airlines were expecting heavy traffic as record tourist seasons end in both Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. A CNR spokesman in Halifax said the rush has already started, with the Ocean Limited ar.d Scotian carrying full loads on the Hali- fax-to-Montreal run. In New Brunswick, baseball and harness racing will be the top attractions Monday and, as in the rest of Canada, many families will close their cottages because of the opening of schools Tuesday. In New Brunswick's potato belt students began classes two weeks ago because they will take two weeks off in the fall to help with the spud harvest. In Quebec City, Mayor Gilles Lamontagne's Labor Day mes- sage calls for labor courts to end strikes as a means of con- tract settlement.

Anticipating heavy passenger loads, CN1 has added extra coaches to its east and west continentals and trains to The Pas and Churchill. Saskatchewan Premier Ross Thatcher's Labor Day message echoed the Quebec City mayor in calling for "a new method of settling labor disputes." "To me, the strike has be-1 come an obsolete he I said, adding in an interview that labor courts are the ulti- mate solution. Labor Day will likely be fol- lowed by an emergency session of the Saskatchewan legislature to broaden the province's com- pulsory, arbitration law, the sec- ond special session on labor trouble in 10 weeks. Alberta Labor Minister Ray Reiersori's message called for Canadians to work together "to discover the means of reconcil- ing our vast material wealth j in the IMOs ''is an outstanding with our growing social con- j one to be envied by all sections of the country." but problems to British Columbia's labor min- ister, Leslie Peterson, called for co-operation to replace conflict.

The average industrial worker is now earning only about a year, and the government's efforts to limit wage and salary increases to six per cent a year is unjust, Mr. MacDonald said. "Obviously, six per cent means varying amounts for varying income levels, and those who need the most get the least." A better life for Canadians can only be created through co- operation to establish an equita- ble distribution of wealth, Mr. MacDonald said.

Rye Crops Sales Outlook 'Dismal' OTTAWA (CP) Except for a small increase in the demand for rye in the distilling industry, the outlook for Canadian-grown rye is decidedly dismal, the ag- riculture department reports. Supplies for 1970-71 will be about 30 to 31 million bushels, nearly triple the estimated ex- port and domestic demand of 10 million bushels. The 1970 crop yield is expected to be about 25 million bushels. The glut is accompanied by a drop in prices, the department said in a statement. Rye prices fell to 98 cents a bushel in June this year, seven cents less than the prices of barley, tradition- ally the higher of the two. The switch suggests a change in the demand pattern between the two grains. In Canada and the United Slates, rye is primarily used as livestock feed. Although the grain has traditionally b-sen- a major food crop in Europe, it is losing its former significance.
