YUKON PAGE TURKS J3R. F. C. JAMES, PRINCIPAL iLcGILL UNIVERSITY POINTS TO CRITICAL TIMES AHEAD IN POST-WA- R PERIOD. In addressing the joint meeting of provincial representatives and members of the committee on re- construction Friday Dr. F. Cyril James of Montrea, principal of Mc-G- ill University, and chairman of die rcv-onslructi- on committee, said Can- ada faces the prospect that one-thi- rd of those now gainfully em- ployed, including the men and wo- men in the armed forces, will have to find new employment immedi- ately after the war. He urged hasto in preparing detailed plans to moot the unemployment problem which will develop when peace comes. Dr. James said the single, centrai problem was obtaining full employ- ment of the Canadian population at the highest possible standard of liv ing. The reconstruction committee eventually would be called upon to propose fiscal and monetary policies which would permit a demand for goods and $ervices sufficient to maintain full employment. This program still was far from being fully developed.
