The exams are being held in the physical activities building gymnasium. Public galleries cleared Saudi Arabia oil never stopped flowing in crisis QUEBEC (CP) Speaker Jean-Noel Lavoie ordered the public galleries of the Quebec national assembly cleared Tuesday after a demonstration on behalf of handicapped children interrupted question period. Assembly guards escorted the crowd outside peacefully. Mr. Lavoie had twice suspended the session within 20 minutes because of noisy shouting, and had warned the group of parents and students he would have the galleries cleared if they continued disrupting debate. The crowd was shouting for Social Affairs Minister Claude Forget to appear. "Where is shouted one of the demonstrators after the first suspension. "We came here for Forget. We sent a telegram to Premier Bourassa last night." Don't Overlook NOOK Comjng Soon! Parti Quebecois House Leader Robert Burns tried to rise on a point of order but Mr. Lavoie ordered him to sit down. People in the galleries shouted: "Bravo. Bravo." and "Let the Opposition speak." The demonstrators, including parents of handicapped children and college students from Quebec City and Montreal, were protesting a provincial policy which requires parents to pay for part of the care of such children in foster homes and institutions. Some of the same people were refused permission to speak to the assembly's com- mittee on social affairs last week. Mr. Forget remained silent amid cheers from the galleries when Part Quebecois House leader Robert Burns tried to intervene. He did not return when the session resumed. B.C. fights Skagit case VICTORIA (CP) British Columbia is preparing to take to the International Joint Commission the question of whether Seattle City Light and Power Co. ought to be allowed to proceed with plans to raise its Ross Dam and flood about 5.000 acres of the province in the Skagit Valley. Resources Minister Bob Williams said Tuesday that within a week the LJC will be asked to consider canelling a 1942 order it made which established the authority for a U.S.-Canada pact of 1967 authorizing the project. He told reporters that the order was made under urgent wartime conditions that no longer exist and that recent environmental studies have determined that "ireeparable damage" will occur if the dam is raised and flooding follows. The province's position is that the IJC is the highest authority in the matter, not the U.S. Federal Power Commission, which is to begin hearings next Tuesday in Seattle on the utility's application to raise Ross Dam 120 feet, added Mr. Williams. By ROBERT KEARNS WASHINGTON (Reuter) Saudi Arabia shipped oil to the United States throughout the Arab oil embargo, while sup- plies from its Arab neighbors almost dried up by the end of December. Figures issued here by the commerce department disclosed that crude oil from Saudi Arabia, the Middle East's biggest producer, never stopped flowing to U.S. ports even four months after the embargo had been imposed in mid-October. The previously secret figures also showed that the United States helped reduce the deficit by importing oil from countries such as Colombia. Italy, Chile, Bolivia, Peru, and the Nether- lands Antilles that do not nor- mally export oil to the U.S. Government energy experts privately acknowledged that the shipments from those unlikely sources had probably been Arab oil diverted around the net of the embargo. The figures showed the Saudis sent barrels of crude oil to the United States in January and more then twice that amount in February. Also identified as an apparent violator of the embargo was the Arab country of Tunisia, which shipped nearly barrels of crude oil in January and a much smaller amount the fol- lowing month. The figures confirmed that the Arab embargo was effec- tive, reducing U.S. imports from the September level of over six million barrels a day to about five million barrels over the last several months. By the end of December, the flow of oil from Kuwait, Libya, Iraq, Algeria and the United Arab countries slowed to a trickle and as the new year began, it ceased. But U.S. oil companies managed to buy substantially more oil from some of the Arab part- ners in the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries notably Indonesia and Iran.

Phono 328-1101 firms good for economy OTTAWA (CP) Alastair Gillespie, indtistry, trade and tabled in Tuesday a report onfareign-owned corporations jrtiich confirms what has been public are a significant factor in the Cana- dian economy. The report presents results of surveying more than 300 non-resident corporations. A summary pulls together some of the details in more than 50 pages of tables, but a department spokesman said departmental researchers did not attempt to relate facts and figures on the foreign-owned companies to the economy as a whole. The report is the fifth in a series and it was tabled on the same day Mr. Gillespie re- ported the government has proclaimed the first section of the Foreign Investment Review Act, requiring foreign investors to prove benefit to Canada of a proposed takeover of a Canadian firm. This latest survey covers 1971 and it adds to information collected from 1964. "The interest and dividends paid abroad by the reporting corporations during the survey period were equivalent to about one-third of the total for Canada as a whole. The respondents brought about billion in new foreign investment capital into Canada between 1965 and 1971; there'were net inflows of such capital in six of the seven years for which information is available, with amounts ranging' from million in 1965 to million in 1969; in the other year, 1968, there was a net capital outflow of million. In addition, the respondents raised some billion for financing purposes in Canada during this period. HELPED BALANCE "These and other statistics given in this summary confirm the substantial Teacher surplus end EDMONTON (CP) The surplus of teachers that has existed in Alberta for three years should end this fall, Dr. B. T. Keeler, executive secretary of the Alberta Teachers' Association, said Tuesday. He said Alberta has had a surplus of teachers, ranging from about 250 to about but the British Columbia government has helped solve the problem by reducing classroom loadi in that province. The B.C. decision means that province will have to increase its force of teachers by about during the next three years. Dr. Keeler said the B.C. demand for teachers probably will not leave other provinces shorthanded because many in British Columbia have been unable to find jobs recently. Companies 6flog' drugs OTTAWA (CP) The hard- sell tactics used by drug com- panies to "flog" their products is a major reason for the medical complications and deaths related to drug overuse and adverse reactions, the Commons health committee was told Tuesday. Dr. A. B. Morrison, head of the federal health protection branch, told MPs the companies flog their drugs "pretty heavily to but the problem is basically one that doctors will have to resolve. Dr. Morrison, who has pre- viously criticized the apparent misuse of medical drugs, said hospital patients are receiving, on average, five to seven different drugs at the same time. The likelihood of drug ad- verse reactions increases as more drugs are he said in reply to questions from J. R. Holmes (PC Lambton a medical doctor. A recent study published by the health protection branch says about one in three gravely ill- people die in hospitals sooner than expected because they react adversely to drugs adminis- tered to make them better. contributions made by the foreign-owned subsidiaries operating in Canada to the nation's economic develop- ment in general and to Can- ada's international payments position in particular." The approximately 325 com- panies surveyed had total sales of billion during 1971, or about one-fifth of all non-financial, non- government corporations in Canada. As a proportion of all non-financial, non- government businesses in Canada, the foreign subsidiaries accounted for more than half of total sales and about 60 per cent of sales in mining and manufacturing.
