China said it v.ould free five of six Japanese detained in the country but there was no immediate word about the other three men. China's freeing of the men follows a Japanese government request about the six Japanese and was seen as a friendly ges- ture marking the closer ties be- tween the countries since they established diplomatic relations last September.

Ps approve tax cuts on feathers, eel traps OTTAWA (CP) The Com- mons double-timed through a maze of tariff and sales-tax measures Friday, approving tax cuts for eel traps, peanut oil, crates for live poultry, feathers and "articles for binding or wedging lobster claws." All parties generally gave ap- proval to the measures, which will put into effect the non-con- troversial parts of the May, 1972, budget. Still to come are the politically sensitive corpo- ration tax cuts proposed in that budget, plus measures from the Feb. 19 budget.

H.-milt-m Junior BELFAST (AP) Gunfire was heard in Roman Catholic sections of Belfast today as guerrillas besieged an army post and ambushed patrols in an apparent intensification of their campaign against the Brit- ish in Northern Ireland. Several small bombs exploded in the battle-scarred city as the Irish Republican Army kept up ice raids for the second straight night. The surge in attacks on sol- diers began Friday with a rash of mortar, rocket, bomb and ambush strikes by the IRA's Provisional wing. A 17-year-old Protestant youth vas shot dead Friday night v-ith two bullets in the face in the toilet of a Catholic-owned trvem in the Protestant sector of Belfast's east end. The youth was the 773rd known fatality since 1969 and the 92nd parson to die this year.

Theodore Aboud, in his fourth day of testimony bsfore the Quebec Police Commission in- quiry, related how he had helped two men set fire to a printing plant near Boston to ob ain insurance :neney. Aboud. serving a 10-year sen- tence for fraud, said he made contact Moatrsaler Jose Rotundo for the coniract because "he told me that he had set the fire at Dunn's restaurant hsre and was considered good at this." Commission lawyer Robert Cooper said official police re- ports show the Massachusetts fire took p'ace in Beverly, March 8, 1960. Aboud said he drove Rotundo and his helper, identified in the police report as Joseph Lat- rail'e. to Boston, sat in the car while they set the fire, and then drove them back to the border. On the way back, he was allowed to continue to Montreal, but Rotundo and Latraille were held by U.S. immigration offi- cers. Canada in the early 1960s.

(AP) The jury in the trial of two University of Montana ath'etic officials recessed for the night without reaching a verdict in a brief session late Friday. The U.S. District Court jury deliberated just over two hours before being directed to return this morning. On trial on charges of divert- ing federal work-study funds are Montana's athletic di-ect- j or ard football coach Jack Swarthcut, and assistant coach William Betcher. ercntial tariff for developing countries. That tariff will make it easier for such countries to sell their goods and earn money both to build up their own economies and to buy Canadian goods. The general preferential tariff will come into effect when pro- claimed by the while the sales-tax exemptions are retroactive to May Included in the goods granted exemption from the 32-per-cent federal sales tax are eye- glasses, contact lenses, crates for live poultry, chemicals for treating sewage, eel lob- ster claw wedges and machin- ery used for development manufacturing processes. The tariff changes will benefit Turkish tobacco, rum, peanut oil, feathers, animais for re- search and a host of other im- ports. The New Democratic Party members have said they will oppose the corporate tax cuts, v-hile the Conservatives have declared their intention of seek- ing to amend the minority Lib- eral government's proposals. If the government proposals are reiected or amended unac- ceptably, the government will be under pressure to resign. Thus tbs government is gen- era'ly believed to be delayiiig in hopes of finding a way to avoid such pitfalls.
