Another anti-war demonstra- tion in Edmonton went more smoothly as a nalive organiza- tion joined leftists and other anti-war sympathizers to con- demn the Tnideau government for "complicity" with American participation in the Vietnamese war. In Montreal, a small group of demonstrators, 'some wearing gas or surgical masks, staged a peaceful march to protest the Quebec, government's silence on the war.

The war they say they want escalated in Vietnam is the "war .of national liberation" being fought by the prc-Com- munist forces in Southeast Asia. They oppose both Western and Russian "fascism." In Ottawa 16 persons .were charged after a violent, bloody clash between the police and Maoists brandishing red flags and copies of Thoughts of Chair- man Mao. Protesters swung fists and the poles from their placards while Ottawa police swung billies. A number of combatants on both sides were bruised and bleeding.

COLEMAN CAMPING EQUIPMENT PANCAKE TUESDAY Marshall-1 NASA released black and white pictures that the astro- nauts snapped of the service module when, they separated from it before re-entering the atmosphere. The photos, printed from color negatives, are poorly lighted. But one of them hints of the se- verity of the explosion. It shows the gaping hole left by the panel blowout. Abo visible are the power-producing fuel cells that were made inoperative by the rupture. Wires, pipes and dangling in- sulation material are visible, too, but the area where the oxy- gen tank exploded is in dark- ness.
