Muskie finished n far-back second in Massachusetts, and managed only a third-place showing, a little ahearl of Mc- Govern in Pennsylvania, where ho concentrated his campaign. Alabama Gov. George Wal- lace ran a startling second in Pennsylvania, after staging a one-day campaign. Massachu- setts gave Wallace eight per cent of the vote in partial re- turns, just ahead of Humphrey.

Auto union would vote for Kennedy ATLANTIC CITY (AP) Senator Edward M. Kennedy addresed the convention of the l.'1-million-mcmber United Auto Workers Union and went away willi an informal presidential endorsement. Kennedy was intcrupted fre- quently by applause Tuesday during lus 30-muiule speech and was mobbed by delegates as he tried to leave the hall. After Kciinedy's departure, delegate Charles VVhite of Lords town. Ohio, rose and moved that the convention en- dorse Kennedy for president. UAW President Woodcock noted that Kennedy has steadfastly removed himself from consideration as a presi- dential candidate. Ted Kennedy make the decision to make the effort to become president of the United States, I would have no difficulty enlisting in that he added. Woodcock, along with most top UAW officials is personally committed lo the presidential campaign of Senator Edmund Muskie. The UAW president nsked Ihe delegates: "Can we interpret Ihe molion as saying that should Ihat decision he made by Sona- for only he can make that decision-that the UAW it ready lo cnlLst in his cause.'' A straw vole was taken show- ing nearly unanimous support for Ihe motion. In his speech, Ihe Massachu- setts Democrat attacked Ihe economic policies of President Nixnn and particularly persis- tent uncmnloyrncnt.

GAMBLING REVIEW Mr. Leitch said there Is also a need, to review all areas of legal gambling In the province, where there are some mnjor problems, with a view to pro- viding licensing and control that would "Cure practices that are harmful." Gambling was an area on vvMch a close watch had to be kept to make sure that It is being nin honestly. Mr. Leitcli said there Is a need to review (he existing sys- tem of Issuing licences for lot- teries and sweepstakes. Some people were calling for more control because several groups have had difficulty In selling tickets and meeting commit- ments. JUDGES PAY FIIKKD iMr. Leitcli also announced that provincial court judges will get a 25-pcr-ccnt salary in- crase this year, There is 000 In the estimates for the Increases. The salary o[ full-lime, le- gally-trained Judges will go up to n year from judges those with no legal training, will get a increase in addition to the 2i> per cent. Replying lo R claim by Grant Notlcy" Tlivcr- Fairview) that the province's legal aid system Is cumber- some, the attorney-general said radical changes would bo pre- mature. The program was relatively new and it would take a while to "work out the kinks." The government was also watting for details on a proposed federal legal aid plan. Mr. Leitch also told the House a "fundamental change" has taken place in the number of people sent to jail In Alberta now compared lo the 1969 fig- ures contained in Ihe contro- versial Matthews report. lie said preliminary figures indicate people received summary convictions In 1971, down nlmost 50 per cent from in I960. A primary cause was a change in legislation allowing intoxicated persons to bo pick- ed np but not charged, a change made subsequent to the lime period studied by Ihe uni- versity ol Alberta professor Victor Matthews. Mr. Matthews' statistics led him to conclude Alberta's legal system was the most punitive in North America. Mr. Lcilcli said It neces- sary to compare changes In the rest of Canada. criticized as "ektremely unreal istic" a statement by NBP Leader Grant Notley that the government should be able lo raise million In revenue from oil reserves. In a position paper Monday, Bill Dickie, minister of mines and minerals, announced that the government favors a tax on crude oil reserves that should raise fSO to sso million for the provincial treasury in 19T3. The government invited oil companies, the public and oth- ers lo react to the proposal at hearings in Details of Ihe proposed tax were not outlined. The government hopes lo make n decision by July 3D. snicl the minister. Legislation could be passed at the fall sit- ting to make the tax effective Jan. 1, The tax on oil re- serves proposal docs not apply (o natural gas or coal or oil from oil sands. Mr. Dickie said natural gas revenues be considered at hearings in June aarl a deci- sion reached likely by fall. MAJOR STEP The proposed tax on oil re- serves was billed as "tbe first major step in a peneral review of the oil and gas policy in ef- fect in Alberta since 1SC2." The government's 10-year policy on both oil and gas royalties is up for review this year. The minister said the current ceiling on ciil royalties will be lifted from oil leases cS (he leases expire, but the govern- ment does not favor a general Increase in royalties at tins time. Mr. Ifinman, the opposition's mines and minerals critic, said Iho government proposal is "a unique approach that i.s entitled to a fair chance.'1 lie said the public will accept the proposal because "the public generally fools should bo more money [rom Ihcir natural resources, but they really don't care how this h done Mr. tlinman discounted criti- cism by Stan Milncr, president of tbe Independent Petroleum Association of Canada who said the proposed tax woldd severe- ly limit Ihc economic growlh of the province. Mr. Ilinman said Ilic oil in- duslry official showed a nat- ural concern in his remark for rising cosls in his business, but will probably accept (be final decision by the government. MODIFY I'OMCrrS Mr. llinman predicted that the Tories will modify policies to suit the de.-iics of the pe- trolciun Industry. He said Iho Conservatives arc unlikely (o alter terms of current oil contracts with Ihe oil companies until they expire because sonic of (lie early con- tracts signed with big firms like Imperial Oil, Gulf and Shell, arc the mot.1 lucrative. However. Sorrncl said an area that Mill rccjuire more (bought is (he govern- ment's proposed policy lo cs- empt. (or up to live years, (fix- es and royallics on new dis- coveries.
