Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 27, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE 1ETHBRIDGE HERALD Mondoy, September 57, 197T Youth problems top the poor OTTAWA (CP) The "youth Mr. Baetz said a determined scene" is more inflammatory I effort toward full employment lhan the poor scene, Reuben I (or the entire population, using Baetz, executive director of the!

"But in formulating social policies for youth we do the final session of the council's j well to remember that youth is sector of our population today is the 14-to-24 age he fold annual meeting. "One reason is that the prob- lem confronting youth affecls primarily the large spectrum of middle-class Canadians." Mr. Baetz toki members of the council, which analyses the causes of social breakdown and need, that middle-class youth has been "nurtured on the rich milk of rising and almost unlim- ited much of it measured in material terms. "The Johnnies and Marys in millions of Canadian middle- class families have been aided in the midst of a cultural revo- lution, even though some adult Canadians reject this idea as so much 'tommy rot'." He said the council's first priority is to lessen poverty, fol- lowed by the development of policies to guarantee an ade- quate income for all. ON'LY AGED PROTECTED The aged were the only Cana. dians protected by a guaranteed income floor and there was grave concern that this floor is too low. For other people, ade- in obtaining a far better educa-1 minimum income security tion than their parents, often at j vss "mainly a hit-and-miss af- real parental he; fair." said. But parents' hopes that their children could, through educa- tion, gain higher incomes and enhanced social status had dur- ing the last few years been shattered. "Indeed, appropriate employ- ment commensurate Kith edu- cational qualifications has be- come difficult and impossible to find. Unemployment among youth in the 16-to-24 age bracket is disastrously high. "Equally devastating has been the rejection by so many of the youth of the standards and values set by Uie parents. "Millions of middle-class par- ents of youth are bitter and be- wildered, and when the middle class becomes sufficiently upset in this country', it spells trouble unless adequate remedial steps are taken." Ask About The NEW INVISIBLE MULTIFOCAL LENS (MULTILUX) In 1969, 0 million out of the billion spent on health and welfare went specifically for financial assistance and services to the poorest Canadi- ans. Since then, the figure had no doubt increased because of high unemployment, he said. A major reason why so little is spent on those needing it most is that Canadians "are al- most pathologically obsessed by the fear that there are masses of employable people on welfare who don't want to work and are ready lo 'bum for ever on re- lief." Some of this feeling had arisen because in the last 25 years Canada never really had full employment. Thus, some employable persons had always been on welfare, reaching such proportions at times of high un- employment as to ohock the public and create a backlash, i Given job opportunities, how- ever, these persons would not stoy on welfare, Mr. Baetz said. "Tlie objective of a guaranteed adequate income for all must remain, but the first line of de- fence must be income through HAPPY REUNION Joseph Kohn, left, and Joseph Wencel embrace after meet- ing for ihe first time in 26 years in Montreal Thursday.

WASHINGTON (CP) Fi- nance ministers and central bankers of 118 countries hold centre stage here this week at the annual meeting of UK Inter- national Monetary Fund, but an- other group is prominent too. They are the economics and development ministers of more than 100 countries, and the for- eign aid chiefs of the 16 or so countries [hat put up most of ,he funds for assistance to un- derdeveloped and developing countries. Canada's chief is Canadian International Develop- ment Agency. At last reckoning, Canada's otaJ foreign aid program ranked just below the average of the 16 countries Uwt are members of the development assistance commitlco in the Or- ganizalion for Economic Co-Op- eration and Development. That is counting private in- their foreign aid up to the level of one per cent of their gross national products. In Canada's case, this would be a targel of about S900 million for the year. In 1970, Canada's lotal foreign aid effort amounted to about 72 per cent of the goal. But this was a marked increase from 1969, when Canada's contribu- tions lo the international and for developing countries was only half the onc-per-cent goal.

Japan last year nosed out Germany and France to be- come the second largest donor. A lot is expected to be heard here this week from the recipi- ent countries about the degree to which inflation is cutting into the real accomplishments that can be achieved by the foreign aid funds they receive. I It is estimated that the total flow of foreign aid last year amounted to per inhabitant; of the developing countries. Ten years ago, tnc per capita aid receipts were about However, as the development assistance committee has pointed out, price increases in mast countriss have been such that the real resources trans- ferred in 1370, per person in the developing countries, was little if at all higher than 10 years ago. OTTAWA (CP) After this week, Ihc country will know a great deal more about Action Canada, the political "move- ment" founded six months agn by Paul Ilcllyer in protest against existing government policies. For one thing, the move- ment's membership will be re- vealed for the first time. And decisions will be made on Ac- tion Canada's stance in Hie next general election. Since Mr. Hellyer, former Liberal leadership candidate and long time cabinet minister, formed Ihe movement there has been little information about its growth, except for occasional statements that il was "exceed- ing There are known lo bo about 15 persons working in the movement's headquarters here, but over-all membership figures have been kept secret. There also has been little information about the type of members that Action Canada is attracting. But at the Oct. 1-3 convention i n movement's the details will be re- vealed. The meetings will be open to everyone wanting to at- tend, although only Action Can- ada members may vote, and Canadians will get a good idea of the movement plans for Ihe future. COULD BE PARTY Action Canada could even de- cide to become a fully-fledged party, as opposed to a move- ment. But Mr. Hellyer doosn't appear to favor such a move. "We're more a vehicle of re- alignment rather than a he says. "Perhaps a combina- tion of existing parties cduld be realigned and put us out of busi- ness, perhaps could be Ihe vehicle that would put an exist- ing party out of business, or we could join forces with an exist- ing party on the basis of what we have in common. "1 think that tliree parties in Canada are enough." Because Action Canada is n "movement" and not a parly, Mr. Hellyer says tin's convention will be different than most meetings held to discuss politi- cal policies. "We won't be there lo attack government policies. There will bo members of existing political parlies there and we will, hope, be having positive discus- sions' on Ihe type of country we want and how we want to achieve it." Earlier, Mr. Hcllycr said that he would like to see someone else put his policies into effect. "But if that doesn't happen, I'll have to do it myself because I believe they're right and it must be done." W' NTS TAX CUTS His policies include, among other things, immediate tax cuts, an expanded money sup- ply, mandatory wage and price guidelines, a more decentralized bureaucracy, improved housing and transportation, and a greater attack cm poverty and pollution. The movement's policies will be voted on as a package. And the voling won't be eon- fined to those at the Toronto convention. By providing identi- fication codes to members in major cities, and by making the necessary arrangements with a trust company, members will be able lo phone the local offices of this company with their votes. The> will be able to vote this way on the leadership which is almost certain to be. won by Mr. Hellyer. So far no one has announced plans to run against the 47-year-old founding chairman, but lie says there likely will be a "spirited" con- test for the position of deputy leader. PREDICTS ELECTION Mr. Hellyer, who still predicts a fall general election, says it's important for this convention to be held as scon as possible so Action Canada will have the necessary direclions. The mem- bership has already voted lo support or enter candidates in the next election. Another convention could hn expected within a year, Mr. Hellyer. Meanwhile, Ibis convention will give the counlry a fairly clear picture of the strength and make-up of Aclion Canada, as delegates come from across country to discuss the future of the movement.

COME TO No matter how old you are or how many cars you've bought, buying a new car is exciting. And a little complicated. Unless you decide to buy it through IAC. The I AC system makes i t convenient for you, You wrap up the whole deal right at the car dealership. With IAC, you give only your deposit as security. Your car stands on its own financial feet. But when you borrow the money, you may find you have to put up your valued savings, your life insurance, or a chattel mortgage as collateral for your loan. Ve don't think you should have to go through all that. So, with IAC, you don't. By not borrowing your sources of borrowing power remain open. That's important. In fact, if later on you need a loan, we can arrange that for you, too. We include life insurance at no extra cost to you. On top of that, you can enjoy the peace of mind of our Payment Protector Plan. This means we'll continue to make your car payments for you if you have an accident or illness and can't work. Think of this before you decide: chances are the very man you buy your new car from is financing his entire inventory of cars through an IAC system. Doesn'tthatmeanitmustbe the most convenient, safest and most sensible way for you to buy? When you buy, pick whatever car your heart desires. But when you come to pay for it, use your head, ask your dealer about the IAC system. He knows all about it. 1- NOW AT IIINd NEW CAR SHOWROOM 7th St. and 1st Ave. S. OPEN NIGHTLY UNTIL 9 P.M.
