Phont 321-5511 Pontiff braves Easter chill MPs back at desk again on Monday OTTAWA (CP) It will be business as usual for Parlia- ment Monday after efforts to give MPs an extra long Easter break ended in failure Thursday night. The Commons will meet at its regular time to clear away two pieces of legislation before starting an unexpectedly early debate on a bill to ban American football leagues from Canada. The suggestion for an extra day off over the Easter week- end came Thursday night from Stanley Knowles NDP North CeiiUe j He proposed that MPs have a holiday Monday so staff members could have a long weekend. He spoke soon after the Con- servatives had scuttled any hope of a 12-day Easter recess proposed by the minority Lib- eral government. Conservative House Leader Tom Bell agreed to the proposal for a Monday holiday but Government House Leader Allan MacEachen proposed that MPs stay away until next Thursday Neither the Conservatives nor the Liberals would budge from their positions. Mr. Knowles, the NDP House leader, said it was difficult to understand the Motorcycle club demands inquiry CALGARY (CP) The Albertan says a Calgary motorcycle club is demanding an investigation into police actions during a fire March 16 at the club's headquarters which claimed the life of a 21- year-old woman. A paper quotes unnamed members of the Lucifer's Union Club as saying police responded to the fire call with drawn guns, dogs and a paddywagon The club members are quoted as saying they fear reprisals from police if their names are published. A high- ranking police officer is quoted as saying officers responded to a report of a gang fight in progress The officer, who was not identified, said club members were treated fairly during the incident. Club members said police rounded up members who escaped from the burning building and took them to jail. Also taken into custody, they said, were some members who were "visibly injured" in the fire. One club member said a constable drew his service revolver on a member who was attempting to take the girl who later died to hospital in his car. Since the fire, said club members, police have made numerous early-morning calls on the pretext of looking for someone TRAFFIC TICKETS Members also said they have been the target of a campaign of traffic tickets since the fire. Lucifer's Union, one of six known motorcycle clubs in Calgary, was established one year ago and members said it had good relations with police until a drug raid earlier this year. Club members praised fire and ambulance crews and said the police involved were from the headquarters detachment, not the zone detachment for the area. One member said if the Forest Lawn zone detachment had attended the fire the alleged mistreatment would not have taken place because members of that detachment are familiar with the club. Posties back MONTREAL (CP) A spokesman for the Montreal local of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers said today the union's Quebec members began returning to work at midnight Friday night but still are staging work government position. "They'll give us three days but they won't give us he said" REPEATS POSITION Mr. Bell repeated his party's position that there could be no Easter recess unless the government announced an early date for a budget or a day soon after the recess for a vote of non- confidence. The announcement by Mr. MacEachen that the Commons would debate a bill next week to ban American football leagues came as a surprise. Health Minister Marc Lalonde has said he wanted early debate on the measure but observers did not expect it so soon. But first the Commons is scheduled to complete debate on a bill dealing with small loans to farmers, fishermen and small businessmen. This will be followed by a bill to amend the Canada Pension Plan Debate on the football bill is expected to start late Tuesday or Wednesday. It is aimed at stopping operation of Toronto Northmen of the new U S.- based World Football League. The bill to provide small loans has received a high priority from Agriculture Minister Eugene Whelan He said Thursday night farmers need loans to aquire equipment which is ready for delivery in Ontario and will be ready for delivery in the West next month Briefing Israel's Defence Minis- ter Moshe Dayan (right) gives briefing in front of a map depicting the Israeli raid into Lebanon Friday.

Japanese trains move TOKYO (AP) Japan's rail services began returning to normal today when railway workers went back to work after the worst transport strike in the country's history THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Pope Paul set today aside to rest as he prepared to celebrate Easter services Sunday at St. Peter's Basilica and to give his annual "Urbi and Orbi" blessing to Rome and the world. On Friday the 76-year-old pontiff braved a chilly evening as he made his annual Way ot the Cross pilgrimage on Rome's Palatine Hill. Pope Paul had been advised by doctors to reduce his Holy Week schedule following two recent bouts with influenza, but he insisted on taking part in the hour-long outdoors ceremony. However, he passed up traditional Good Friday services in St. Peter's and Vatican officials said he will not attend the Easter vigil mass tonight. The Pope, dressed in red robes of mourning, watched the procession for the first nine of the 14 Stations of the Cross. Then he took up the six- foot cross of light wood and carried it for 15 minutes. The Western Christian cele- bration of Easter coincides this year with Eastern rites, and Ecumenical Patriarch Demetrios I, the spiritual leader of 250 million Eastern Orthodox Christians, urged the unity to become permanent. In an Easter encyclical, the patriarch called for a pan- Christian agreement setting a single date for the holy day to signify that "our resurrected common Lord is one, that His body the church is one. Flower tubs seal streets in Belfast BELFAST (AP) Brftish soldiers sealed off Belfast's main street today with rows of large concrete flower tubs in the latest move to prevent guerrillas from planting car bombs in the city centre A wave of bombs in the last two weeks has caused damage estimated at million The bombings are thought to be an attempt by the Irish Republican Army to paralyze Northern Ireland's commercial lite. In a three-day sweep through IRA strongholds in the city, the army rounded up about 60 terrorist suspects. They are thought to include upper-echelon IRA officers and about 20 women, military sources said. Both wings of the Roman Catholic-based IRA have planned big marches for Sun- day. These commemorate the 1916 Easter rising in Dublin that eventually led to the partition of Ireland and the creation of the Irish republic. The IRA is fighting to oust the British from Northern Ireland and unite it with the Irish republic. Hearst fears rescue danger LA PAZ, Mexico (AP) Randolph Hearst says he is worried that his kidnapped daughter Patricia might get killed during a rescue attempt by the FBI. "I know I cannot control the FBI, but I certainly hope that even if they know where Patty is they will not go in Vrith guns blazing and get my daughter he said in an interview here Friday. Hearst added he and the FBI have reached agreement that any police action which might endanger Patricia will be avoided.

Miss Hearst, 20, was dragged screaming by kidnappers from her Berkeley, Calif., apartment Feb. 4. Two months later, after her parents had organized a food giveaway in response to the kidnappers' demands, Patricia said in a taped message that she has joined the Symbionese Liberation Army (SLA) which abducted her. The Hearsts and two of their daughters have been staying at a resort on the southern tip of Baja California 19 miles south of La Paz since last Sunday in an effort, they say, to get away from the pressures of the kidnapping ordeal. Hearst said he is not aware of any plan to fly the SLA kidnappers from the United States in exchange for his daughter's safety. The girl's fiancee, Steven Weed, said in San Francisco Thursday he is working on such a plan.
