Tents were banned as grass began to wither towards the summer's end but inhabitants improvised with plastic gar- bage bags, tarpaulins stretched between trees and brightly striped deck chair Others sought shelter under an overpass straddling the pathways where radios blar- ing beside rows of sleeping bags harmonized with Iralfic overhead.

Most, like Peter, were for- mer park residents needing cash. Peter hitch-hiked to Amster- dam from the beaches of Mo- rocco where he had been sup- porting 10 people on his few hundred dollars, arriving here with barely enough to keep himself and his girl-friend for more [him a day or two. Uc retrieved empty bottles from garbage bins and "whole unopened lunches that people just toss away." then worked as a cigarette machine opeia- lor for a "god-awful four weeks, two da.vs and 21i hours." He now lives in a houseboat commune on a canal and plans to find a new job in Am- sterdam when the park pro- ject ends. "Most park people are stu- dents with enough money jusl. passing through." he said. "This place draws them be- cause it's cheap, a Rood place to meet people and open 24 hours a day." He said the chief problems were thieves rifting sleepers' packs and drug-pushers, the target of constantly patrolling police and plainclothesmen. Another Amsterdam project bedding down 1.500 people a night on foam rubber slrips in three converted factories for 70 cents a head served as a model forCopenhaRen's sleep-ins.

He said the bill removed the "right lo institute economic ac- tion" by public employee unions and provided Hie provincial gov- ernment with the sole right to bring about arbitration. Earlier, Stanley Little, presi- dent of CUPE, toW delegates wage guidelines implemented by the federal government had made "an uller farce" of collec- live bargaining rights. He described Dr. John Young, head of federal Prices and In- comes Commission, as a "shrill mouthpiece for the Trudeau government's anti-lalwr propa- ganda." 'POLICY NOT SOUND' If Dr. Young knew anything about inflation, he would have told Mr. Tmdeau his anti-infla- tionary policies were about as iound as "social Credit's funny money Mr. Little aid. In an interview following his address, Mr. Blakeney said the vast majority of unions are re- sponsible in their demands and there were only a few that ex- hibited a hunger for power.
