Tower Edmonton, Alberta T5J OK1 Race under way to succeed FROM AP-RElfrER PARIS (CP) President Georges Pompidou, 82, who led France through its time of trial after the departure of Gen. Charles de Gaulle, was buried Thursday in a quiet country churchyard. Shortly after the ceremony two prominant politicians an- nounced they are candidates in presidential elections scheduled .for April 28 or May 5.'. Only'his widow, Claude, his son, Alain, and other .close relatives attended the ceremony in the little cemetery at Orvilliers, the village near Paris where Pompidou had his country home. He had asked that the burial to have a strictly family character. Police sealed off the village of 270 inhabitants at dawn, making sure thai no reporters or outsiders had access to the private burial. Even the mayor of Orvilliers, Jean Allaert, was not permitted to attend the ceremony, which was conducted by two Catholic priests in accordance with the president's written wishes. WISH GRANTED In a note Pompidou wrote 18 months ago and entrusted to an Elysee Palace aide, be said: "I want to be buried at Orvilliers. Naturally, I do not want any flowers, or any funeral wreath or monument. A simple headstone with my name and the dates of my birth and death." Services were also held at the parish church on the He Saint Louis where he died in his private apartment Tuesday night. 'Only family members, gov- ernment ministers, leading politicians and close Pompidou associates were invited to the mass. A state memorial service, attended by Prime Minister Trudeau, President Nixon, Chancellor Willy Brandt and other foreign leaders, will be held at Notre Dame cathedral Saturday, a national day of mourning. Thursday's funeral cortege jfrom the lie Saint Louis to Or- viliers, about Mrniles west of Paris, followed the same route the late president always took when he left Paris to spend weekends at his two- storey home here called "The White House." Neither the time nor the route was announced in advance and pedestrians in Paris were taken by surprise when the cortege drove by and moved to the expressway leading to Orvilliers. The race to succeed Pom- pidou already is under way. Former premier Jacques Chaban-Delmas and National Assembly president Edgar Faure said Thursday they would be candidates in presidential elections. The Communist party said it would seek agreement with the Socialists to field a single candidate. Finance. Minister Valery Giscard d'Estaing issued a statement saying he would not comment on the presidential race until ceremonies marking Pompidou's death are over. The Socialists scheduled a meeting for Monday, probably to name Secretary-General Francois Mitterrand as their presidential aspirant. Pompidou became president in 1969 when Charles de Gaulle resigned. It is not clear whether Pompidou designated any of the Gaullist politicians as his chosen successor. Chaban-Delmas's quick an- nouncement was an indication of the division in Gaullist ranks over the party's candidate. Chaban-Delmas, mayor of Bordeaux since 1947, has his personal political apparatus already in place and is reported to have sizable party support. Firearms controls submissions may be sought OTTAWA (CP) Senators discussed the idea of hearing opinions on gun control as they began second-reading debate on a Senate gun control bill Thursday. Senator Gil Molgat said a Senate committee should travel the country to permit public submissions. The bill would require a per- mit for all firearms, placing them all in the restricted cate- gory. Machine-guns and sawedoff shotguns, now in the restricted class, would be prohibited outright. Anyone possessing a weapons permit would be required to pass a weapons- handling test. Possession of a hunting licence would suffice, however, for use of a rifle or shotgun for hunting. Senator Guy Williams British Columbia) asked about the effects of the bill on Indians who depend on hunting for their living. SHOWS TRAVEL NEED Senator Molgat said this shows the importance of a travelling committee to hear submissions in all parts of the country. However, Senator Arthur Laing Columbia) said he does not see how people can be tested on their competence to handle guns. He had grown up on a farm where "there were always four or five guns around." They were tools to live off the land and still applied in many parts of Canada. Mysterious oil appears SEATTLE (AP) All of Washington's north coastal beaches were closed yesterday, because of large concentrations of bunker oil washing up on the shoreline and surrounding estuaries. But a culprit may be hard to find, according to Sharon Marchese, of the state department of ecology. She believes the oil concentrations are a natural phenomenon which occur every spring. She said two weeks ago Oregon coastal beaches had the same mysterious oil appearing. Senator Frederick Howe Newfoundland) said Canadians are bombarded by American magazines which he called 'propaganda machines for the National Rifle Association, "the most potent lobby in the U.S." These magazines denied the fact that there was a direct re- lation between the number of guns and the murder rate. Two shot to death BUENOS AIRES (Reuter) A Fiat executive and an official of Argentina's powerful Gene-ral Confederation of Workers were shot dead in separate incidents in Argentina Thursday. Roberto Klecher, personnel manager of the Fiat Motor Co.'s Argentine factory, was machine-gunned to death by three men as he drove down a busy street in the industrial city of Cordoba. The killers who fired from the first floor of a building, escaped in a car. There was no Indication whether the murder was political. The labor official, gunned down Thursday night in the town of San Nicholas, 120 miles northwest of here, was Antonio Magaldi, local secretary of the confederation. Magadli, a right-wing sup- porter of President Peron, was a former close associate of the confederation's ex- secretary, Jose Rucci, assassinated here last September.
