(CP) Fines totalling were levied Tuesday on four Irving companies convicted of forming a monopoly of all daily newspapers in New Brunswick. At the same time, Mr. Justice Albany M. Robichaud of the provincial Supreme Court postponed decision on a request by William Hoyt, special combines prosecutor, for an order prohibiting the companies from operating a monopoly in the future. Argument on this point will be heard in Fredericton June 11 Payment of the fines will also be postponed since the companies have appealed their convictions to the provincial Supreme Court Appeals Division. Hearing of the appeal is not expected before September K. C. Irving Ltd of Saint John was fined a total of 000 on four counts, New Brunswick Publishing Co. Ltd. of Saint John a total of on three counts, Moncton Publishing Co. Ltd. 'and University Press of New Brunswick Ltd. of Fredericton each on one count. Mr. Hoyt, acting for the fed- eral justice department, had asked for fines totalling Judge Robichaud rejected this as too high "in view of the particular circumstances in this case." He said a penalty of that size "would savor of persecution The prosecutor's request for a monopoly, prohibition order was made earlier in a wntten brief Mr Hoyt declined to give details and the brief was not read in court. However, the Combines Investigation Act provides that the court may prohibit continuation of any merger or monopoly and order ;i dissolved "in such manner as the court directs Five papers are involved- Saint John Telegraph-Journal, and The Times-Globe, Moncton Times and The Transcript and Fredricton Gleaner. They comprise all the English-language dailies in New Brunswjck. 1 In June, 1972, after charges were laid but before the trial took place, the papers an- nounced a rearrangement of ownership involving the three sons of former New Brunswick industrialist K.C. Irving, now living ,in Bermuda These changes put the Mon- cton and Fredencton papers under the sole ownership of son John Irving, leaving his brothers James and Arthur in control at Saint John Judge Robichaud delayed his decision on the prohibition order at the request of defence lawyer Donald Gillis. Mr Gillis said he needs more time to study the prosecutor's argument for dissolving the alleged monopoly He said he probably will have to call more witnesses when the hearing on this question takes place in June. In seeking a total fine of prosecutor Hoyt said the penalty must be large enough to suit the nature of the case. A monopoly over 80 per cent of the province's dailies had existed for almost' 24 years after New Brunswick Publishing Co acquired the Moncton company in 1948. A 100-per-cent monopoly had existed after the Fredericton paper came under control in 1968. He referred to profits of million reported by New Brunswick Publishing in the period 1956-70 before taxes and depreciation were taken out The Moncton papers had shown a profit before taxes in the same period.

More than 600 persons attended the funeral at Cloverdale, near Vancouver. Chief of staff resigns in war failure hassle JERUSALEM (Reuter) Gen David Elazar resigned Tuesday night as chief of staff after an official commission investigating Israel's military and political failings at the start of the October war recommended he be fired. But he rejected the accusa- tions made in an interim report by the five-man commission. The commission also called for the dismissal of the chief of intelligence, Eliahu Zeira, and other intelligence officers and the suspension of Maj Gen. Shmuel Goner., commander of the Suez front when the war broke out. In a letter Elazar read to special cabinet session Tuesday night, he defended himself against the charges. He said before leaving the meeting that although he con- siders the charges are unjusti- fied, he can no longer continue to serve as chief of staff. Elazar said Maj.-Gen. Yit- zhak Hoffi would take over temporarily as chief of staff until a new appointment was made. The commission's 35-page interim report cleared Israel's defence minister, Gen. Moshe Dayan, in view of the information and advice given him by the chief of staff and chief of intelligence. The commission, set up to investigate the failings of military and political leaders at the start of the war, cited as one of Israel's main mistakes a misjudgment of available information due to a blind belief that enemy deployments on the front lines were manoeuvres. WHO RESPONSIBLE? The commission delved into responsibility for the Israeli armed forces' lack of pre- paredness on Oct. 6, when Montana launchings planned OMAHA, Neb. (Reuter) The United States Air Force said Tuesday it is preparing to spend million during the next ftiree months in preparation for the proposed practice launching of Minuteman intercontinental ballistic missiles from sites in Montana. A Strategic Air Command spokesman said the funds will finance surveys of the launching area near Great Falls; the impact area near Canton Island in the Pacific, more than miles away, hazard studies and related activities. Egypt and Syria attacked Yugoslav-bom Elazar was appointed chief of staff to succeed Lt.-Gen. Haim Bar Lev from Jan. He was then 46. He came to Israel in the early 1940s and joined the underground Palmach guerrilla force in 1946 before the establishment of the state of Israel In the 1967 six-day war, Ela- zar was commander of the Syrian front where he led the attack which took the Golan Heights. Elazar was quoted by Time magazine as saying six months before the last war: "I don't believe the Egyptian forces have the faintest chance of winning a battle." In October, Egyptian troops swept across the Suez canal, shattering Israel's renowned "Bar Lev" defence line. Elazar told Israeli newspaper editors last November that his troops were first warned of an Arab attack 10 days before the assault began and were on full alert 27 hours beforehand. He defended the army and its general headquarters against criticism and said the army would "unflinchingly draw all the necessary conclusions" from an internal inquiry he had instituted into the war EDMONTON (CP) Snow surveys by the environment department uy the probability of spring flooding high in areas north of Red Deer. The surveys, released Tuesday, showed no s'ignificant change in the water content of the snow cover. Temperatures have not been warm enough to cause significant water flows. The surveys report runoff is not expected to cause problems unless the temperature exceeds 50 degrees for two or three consecutive days. A heavy runoff is anticipated in most northern areas because of heavy snows which have been 180 per cent above normal depths in some areas. In many cases water content of the snow on the ground is about seven inches Heavy autumn rains have left the ground soaked, and snow runoff will not be absorbed by soil, says the report. The greatest danger of flooding continues to be around the Vermilion, Paddle, Pembina and Sturgeon rivers, Pine Creek, and in the Grande Prairie, Fairview, Rycroft, Whitecourt, Coronation and Cold Lake areas FLOOD WATCH URGED Meanwhile Alberta municipalities Tuesday were warned to establish a flood New Zealand clamps down WELLINGTON (AP) New Zealand has introduced tougher immigration controls, with immediate effect. Commonwealth citizens of wholly European ancestry including Britons, lose the unrestricted right of entry and now must obtain permits Australians will still have an unrestricted right of entry un- der a special reciprocal ar- rangement made early last year watch on critical areas that have been vulnerable to flooding in past years. The Alberta Disaster Services Organization (ADSO) said eight steps should be taken immediately "in light of the continued potential flood threat." In addition to a flood watch, also urged municipalities to: flood forescasts for their areas; lists of available equipment and manpower to fight flooding; or renew alerting and mobilization procedures; preliminary preparations for an emergency headquarters; protective measures at ctitical installations by diking; public warning arrangements for evacuation of low lying areas.
