Don Getty told the CBC will appeal ad reduction rule OTTAWA (CP) The CBC is going back .to the Canadian Radio-Television Commission (CRTC) to discuss the conditions the commission included in its approval Sunday of all corporation broadcast licenses for another five years. A CBC spokesman Wednesday confirmed that corporation -.president Laurent Picard had asked for consultation with the executive committee of the CRTC to discuss the provisions of the ruling. The spokesman said provision for such consultation, on request, is included in Section 17 of the Broadcasting Act. He said the financial implications of the ruling "are very serious indeed." He said he was sure the corporation could handle the re- quirements outlined in the ruling, but appeared as concerned about the availability of staff as of financing. The main provision of the CRTC ruling is that the CBC must sharply reduce its commercial advertising on tele- vision to five minutes an hour by October, 1978, from the current 10 minutes an hour. And its here that the corporation is ex- pense of filling those minutes without compensating income legislature the premiers agreed at their Saskatoon meeting earlier this year that "those provinces that had a natural advantage continue to develop those natural advantages to their benefit." "I see no conflict whatsoever." Bob Clark, Social' Credit house leader suggested the province's decision to collect the tax-itself so it can have more influence on industrial development in Alberta went against agreement by the premiers not to compete unnecessarily for new industry. Mr. Getty replied that the new tax system that will be set up is designed to encourage development from within the province. Mr. Getty also indicated it is doubtful that the Western provinces could 'develop a joint corporate tax scheme since there are unique problems in each province. Meanwhile, the government has announced it will encourage the development of a fish farming industry in the province. Agriculture Minister Hugh Horner and Allan Warrack, lands and forests minister, said an interdepartmental committee has been asked to formulate a program that can be put into effect in 1975.

Two left Yablonski plot Committee will investigate reports of prison conflict OTTAWA (CP) Solicitor- General Warren Allmand said Wednesday that conflict exists between some guards and some prisoners in maximum security institutions in, Canada. The minister made this statement in response to questions at a Commons justice committee meeting during which he said there appears to be a confrontation between a small group of guards and another small Saskatchewan land bill draws flack REGINA (CP) The Sas- katchewan government's con- troversial bill restricting the right of non-residents of the province to own farmland ran into a blast of Liberal opposi- tion Wednesday when debate on the'bill began in the legislature. John Gardner Liberal agriculture spokesman, said the bill "strikes at the very fibre of our Canadian heritage." He condemned the bill for making no distinction between Canadians living outside Sas- katchewan and foreigners living outside Canada. In opening debate on the bill, Agriculure Minister John Messer said current agricultural prosperity has produced greater interest by foreigners, non-residents and non-agricultural corporations in investing in agricultural land group of prisoners at troubled Millhaven prison in the Kingston, Ont., area. He also announced that a senator and three MPs have agreed to visit Millhaven, probably next week, to investigate the situation and report back to him -and the Commons committee. The remarks came during a general discussion between the minister, Penitentiaries Commissioner Paul Faguy and several MPs. He was more specific about Millhaven where there has been unrest for several weeks. There was a group of 10 to 15 "very aggressive" guards who did not co-operate in prison programs and there was a small group of prisoners in the same position. Fifty prisoners who could be classified as medium security risks were being transferred to other institutions as soon as space was found. This would relieve the population pressure, he said. Mr. Allmand said Mr. Leg- gatt, Flora MacDonald (PC- Kingston and the James Jerome chairman of the committee, and Senator Earl Hastings of Alberta have agreed to visit" the prison and to report. Andre Fortin a member of the committee who seldom is in attendance, also had been asked. MEDIA, Pa. (AP) Two men have testified that they were hired to kill United Mine Workers insurgent Joseph (Jock) Yablonski in 1969 but backed out of the plot. "I just didn't want to kill George Smith, a Jellico, Tenn., horse trader, testified Wednesday at the murder trial of former UMW president W. A. (Tony) Boyle. "I got mad and said I was out, that I wouldn't have any more to do with testified the other man, Charles James Phillips, 32, who now is serving a life term in Ohio for raping a four-year-old girl. Both said they were to split the proceeds of the murder contract with Paul Gilly, 42, convicted triggerman in the Dec. 31, 1969, slayings of Yablonski, his wife and daughter. The 72-year-old Boyle is ac- cused of three counts of murder in the Yablonski killings at the Yablonski home in Clarksville, Pa. The prosecution alleges the murder plot was financed with in union funds author- ized by Boyle. Man killed CASSILS (CP) A level crossing accident near this community, 73 miles northwest of Medicine Hat, claimed the life of district farmer Donald Olson, 50, late Wednesday. Luns says NATO is essential BRUSSELS (AP) the head of the North Atlantic alliance warned on its 25th anniversary today that if the United States and its European allies will not pay for defence, "the umbrella of security will be lost." The main figure at the muted celebration was Joseph Luns, the NATO secretary- general. The absence of President Nixon, who had hoped to come and sign a "new Atlantic made the occasion a comparatively quiet one. The death of French President Georges Pompidou also contributed to the subdued tone although his attendance was never considered likely. Luns said: "If we examine our alliance, we can see that its essential aim, to end Soviet expansion in Europe, has been successfully attained in this quarter-century. The territorial status quo has remained inviolable. Thanks to the present deterrent capacity of the alliance, our peoples no longer fear a large- scale military aggression But he added that most people do not realize the rela- tion between joint defence and material prosperity. "The very existence of the European Common Market would be he said, "if there were no Atlantic al- liance." SUPPORT DECLINES Social progress is possible only under the security of the alliance but that progress "leads to an unwillingness or an alleged impossibility to pay for defence If this tendency goes on un- checked, he added, social progress will be lost together with the security under which it shelters, and will prove "purely illusory anil transitory." The anniversary ceremony was held, behind the high bar- bed-wire fence of NATO head- quarters on the road to Brussels airport. Admittance was by invitation and the number of invitations were limited. Wilson wants tips protected Herald Legislature Bureau EDMONTON Socred MLA Roy Wilson (Calgary Bow) says some Alberta firms deduct tips from their employees' already low wages. Mr. Wilson introduced a private member's bill in the legislature Wednesday to make the practice illegal with fines ranging up to for contravention. "When customers leave a tip, they want to be assured that it goes to the individual who renders the service and not to Mr. Wilson said. His bill, which has little chance of being passed, Would not affect the pooling or sharing of tips among employees, he said. But it would apply to tips left through credit cards. "People are getting minimum wages to begin with. Tipping is between the patron and employee. Management shouldn't enter i.iu> it." Luns handed out warnings impartially to Americans and Europeans. "Americans should under- stand the effects of the inevi- table growing pains The Nine (Common Market countries) are feeling particularly acutely at the moment. The Europeans must remain determined not to allow economic and trade dif- ferences to drive a wedge be- tween the two sides of the At- lantic." He said the record of the al- liance proved the wisdom of the men who created it "as a partnership linking Europe and North America in a community where unity allows for diversity." Passengers from QE2 make land HAMILTON, Bermuda (AP) The Norwegian cruise ship Sea Venture brought the passengers and 20 crew members of the drifting Queen Elizabeth 2 into Hamilton harbor today. The Sea Venture's horn was blaring, and the rescued pas- sengers were lining the rails, waving to the few people on the docks, as the ship began to tie up. It was a warm, sunny day. "You win when nobody gets hurt, and you win when every- body gets home said one of the QE2's passengers, coach Hank Stram of Kansas City Chiefs. "That's what hap- pened in this particular case Here we had a great mixture of people who handled themselves in a poised, disciplined and patient way." Discipline and patience were still necessary on the final leg of the voyage. The Norwegian cruise ship Sea Venture which took the QE2's passengers and 20 of her crew aboard 250 miles south- southeast of Bermuda Wednesday has berths fot only 626 persons and 200 of them were filled by her own passengers. The QE2 passengers, who paid between and each for their cruise, were given pillows and blankets and settled down where they could for the night. About half the passengers were members of senior citizen groups, and the elderly were given priority on the empty berths. The Cunard Lines, the QE2's owner, chartered a jumbo jet and a DC-10 to fly the passengers from Bermuda to New York, with the first two planeloads due at noon and 12 p.m. EST. After unloading, the airliners are to shuttle back to Bermuda to get the rest. One of the passengers, Mrs. William Hillenbrand of Arlington, Va., said many of those aboard "seemed to enjoy the crisis atmosphere'.' after a fuel oil leak into the boiler water system stranded Cunard's flagship Monday during a week-long cruise.
