The newspaper says this pre- diction coincides v.ith repeated but unconfirmed reports recently that Ottawa already has presented the U.S. govern- ment with a compromise pro- posal for gradually eliminating the auto pact safeguards. Safeguards continued in the pact include so-called value- added and production measures which effectively guarantee that a certain minimum proportion of North American car and truck production will be in Can- ada. Others prevent individual Ca- nadians from buying cars in the U.S. and importing them duty- free into Canada.

The minister told the house Monday that he met with Mr. Pratte Friday for an hour fol-1 lowing a press interview earlier this month hi which the head of the airline indicated he was completely "frustrated" and ready to present his resigna- tion. Outside the house Mr. March- ar.d Monday in a brief interview ssid reports ihaL Mr. Pratte was ready to "resign" were "just newspaper speculation.'' The minister said, "He has no intention of resigning." Meantime, he said, Mr. Pratte had indicated his satis- faction after their talk Friday. "He has never been so cheerful in his life.' said the minister with a smile. John Diefenbaker (PC- Prince Albert) raised the ques- tion in the Cwnrnons Monday. He asked if Mr. Marchand had had any communication with Mr. Pratte following the inter- view with Financial Post earlier this month. Mr. Diefenbaker enquired if the Air Canada chairman was still dissatisfied with an appar- ent lack of policy decision from the federal government.

Asked if Air Canada would be I completely "frustrated" be- cause the government had "no policy lespeeting Air Canada. Mr. Marchand said he met with Mr. Pratte Friday from 9.30 to 10.30 a.m. Smiling, he said, he regretted Mr. Diefenba- ker was not around Friday or he would have invited the MP to the meeting so that the mem- ber "would have seen we are in perfect agreement.'' "We both want to preserve the pre-eminence of Air Canada not only nationally but interna- tionally. Further, he received snswsrs to ail ths letters he sent to me." Mr. Marchand told the house. Queried by Mr. Diefenbaker as to what decision had been reached concerning the alloca- tion cf the Milan route Mr. Marchand said "we have not discussed the case of Milan at all.'' j Other sources indicated Mon- day however that the govem- i ment decision will be to allocate i the Milan route to CP Air, the I privately owned airline. I Air Canada wants to ensure that if CP "Air gets Milan there- will be new areas of the globe opened up to Air Canada in compensation. Mir. Marchand's comments inside the house and outside appeared to indicate that Mr. Pratte got those assur- ances Friday. Mr Pratte has been putting the pressure on ths cabinet in recent months. He has made known his frustration with Ot- tawa. He has said privately and recently in an interview with a newspaper man that he was an- noyed over an refusal by the federal government to make de- cisions. "We don't know what they want and I can't find be t complained In the interview. "I have worked with three minis- ters of Jamieson and asked each for guidance. Do they want us to be profit ori- ented? What should be our ob- jective? "We get a lot of criticism about our domestic fares and don't hear federal ministers coming to our defence in parlia- ment. Do they want us to forget about profits and cut fares. We could do it easily but we need direction." Mr. Pratte is re- ported to have said. He claimed that he finally drafted Air Canada's own set of objectives and forwarded them to the minister of transport. He asked that they be anproved or changed, but received no reply. What has Mr. Pralte worried is that if CP Air continues to get choice routes and to develop the way it has been developing the government owned airline. Air Canada, will become the second Canadian carrier on in- ternational routes within the decade. He complained in the inter- view that CP Air has all the "growth routes" and Air ada is restricted and kept out of most of the world. "I cannot accept that this Is what the government wante yet this is what is he claimed. CP Air disputes this claim. Its spokesmen point out that Air Canada still has the major traf- jfic areas hi northern Europe, the Caribbean and the United States. Air Canada wants the rights to fly on from Europe to India, Singapore, and Bangkok. It also wants to be permitted to serve Beirut and Yugoslavia. The government-owned line also wants to get into Africa and down the east cosst of South America to Venzuela and Brazil. deadline Pattern WASHINGTON (AP) Most big United States cities say they cannot meet a May 31, 1975, federal deadline to clean up their air without controls that could cost motorists hundreds of dollars and forbid some pri- vate cars from entering the city.

The federal Eavironmsntal Protection Agency (EPA) has {not tallied the responses, but an Associated Press survey found that at least 14 did not file their plans.
