The old group concentrated mainly on research and was not as close to confidential information on departmental plans as Mr. Gray says the new 31-member group will be. GROUP SMALLER Mr. Gray however has re- duced the body concerned with research to six and says it may not be possible for the larger body to issue an annual Birthday kotnono Conservative Leader Robert Stanfield has ad- justments made to komono he received for his 60th birthday by Mrs. Stanfield.

Armed guards will accompany Leonardo da Vinci's unique portrait to the National Museum in Tokyo, where it will be exhibited from April 19 to June 10. It will be the third time the picture has left France since King Francois I bought it for his Fontainebleau Palace early in the 16th century.

The transport department said in a news release that the postponement, second in six months, will allow a study Kootenay projects outlined VICTORIA (CP) The forest service has outlined a wide range of projects for the 42.000 acres which the provincial government acquired two months ago in the million purchase of Koolenay Forest Products Ltd. at Nelson. B.C. The current issue of Forestalk, the forest service quarterly magazine, said a 16- acre seedling nursery at Harrop on Kootenay Lake is a firm proposal. The site, previously sale by KFP at per acre, is ideal, it added. "Other tentative proposals for the region include green belt areas, special fisheries undertakings along portions of the Lardeau River, establishment of regional and community parks and possibly a new provincial park at Gerrard." Regarding the plywood company's operations in the City, of Nelson, the story said "it is quite likely" the mill complex will be enlarged to provide more jobs and to move into higher levels of finished products, which will bring higher profits. The company had million profits last year and sales this year are expected to top million. But the .magazine cautioned that although bigger returns are forecast for 1974. "the government doesn't plan to concentrate only on making a big profit." "Instead it is planned to have a proper business management practices balanced against ecological and environmental concerns." The article, by forest service information officer Ray Wormald. claimed the government got KFP for "a bargain price" considering that the land which came with the plywood mill is worth about million at the lowest going prices. That included some 30 miles of waterfront property at a front foot and 40.000 acres of unimproved wilderness at an acre.

The new council represents a broad base of interest groups including the Consumers Association of Canada the National Anti-Poverty Organization the Montreal Diet Dispensory and the Canadian Federation of Independent Business Missing from the list of new council members is Winnipeg lawyer Harold Buckwald, for- mer chairman of the old group. In an interview last month, Mr. Buckwald charged that senior civil servants in the department were antagonistic towards the council because of its outspoken criticism of "bureaucratic footdragging" in the consumer field. NOT INVITED He expressed fears that the revised council would be cut down in size and made less ac- cessible to the public. He also said he would be willing to ac- cept a position on the new council if invited. Said Mr. Gray: "All I can say is that nobody that was asked refused." adding that he feels he has effectively eliminated any fear that the council will be weakened.
