Bishop said that "in spite of [he trend of tocreasing risk i must be sliesaed that the aetua risk of the development of thrombosis in women taking (he pill is very sman."

Voodoo Deal Stalled By JOHN VEST 9TTAWA (CP) A plan to rejuvenate Canada's home def- ence fighter squadrons has run nto unexpected delay at the cabinet level. The plan, drawn up by tbe efeaee department, would in- xrive swapping the present fleet of CF-101B Voodoo interceptors an improved version of the same aircraft from the U.S. About 96 of. the nuclear- equipped planes, Canada's con- tribution to tbe North American Air Defence Command, would traded. Canada would get hat many of tbe more adv- nced types hi return, plus pos- sibly about 10 extra roar him. Early in January, informed sources were predicting that the cabinet would act on the plan within a month or so. Howerer as .far as could be detenmnet Wednesday, the deal hasn't yet Men formally taken up by the cabinet. The delay is traced by some observers ki doubts among min- isters and in cades close to the cabinet about Canada's role continental defence, its nuctear aspect.' Inaction on .the Voodoo deal b related in some quarters to in- action on two other defence matters that haw been around even longer. SEEK REFUELING SITES One. of these is the U.S. re- quest, made nearly three years ago, for permission to use four bases as refuelling sites for Strategic Air Command lying tankers in an interna- ional enia goxy. The other, which has been on land in different forms since 1963, is a NORAD-Pentagon re- ipcfit that tbe base at North lay, OnL, be equipped for use Education Mill Rate Reduced RED DEER (CP) A 1970 public school tax rate of 40.57 milk, a decrease of 5.26 mills from 1969, was accepted by school trustees here. The figure represents 30 mOls for the Alberta Foundation Pro- gram and 10.97 mills for the board's supplementary requisi- tion. The board said it expect] to spend in 1970, a 12- peNcent increase over 19M. An earlier city council pro- posed mill rate for municipal purposes gives a total tax rate to date of 67.409 mills. Hospital rates were still to be set New revenues from the School Foundation Program make the mill rate reduction possible, school officials said. as an attenuate NORAD com- mand headquarters in the event (hat the nerve centre at Colo- rado Springs, Colo., is knocked out. by a Soviet missile. A U.S. embassy source said Wednesday both requests are "still and that Washington is }ust as interested as ever In having mem granted. However there had been no indication from Canadian authorities who they win be answered. Defence Minister Leo Cadieux is believed to favor the hpo pro- posals, as he is in favor of the Voodoo fwtp. There has been speculation that some cabinet ministers would Eke to see Canada get out of ks current nuclear rote in NORAD. Both the Genie missile used by Canada's three inter ceptor squadrons, and the Bom- arc missiles stationed at North Bay and La Macau, Que., hare nudear tips. The improved tin Canada would get under the proposed swap with tbe U.S. are surplus to American requi meats.

Frank Kennerty of Toronto, president of the member association, said then 'a no reason for small plants to be restricted., hetead, he said, the go eminent should establish an aircraft control system that segregate large and small air craft. Mr. Goodwin said a sugges- tion by 'Mr. Kennerty thi segregation can he achieved by creation of corridas for dse ei cheively by large planes hat merit but also limitations.
