Actually he is a Sask-Tel worker and the trench he is escaping from is only that and not a tunnel from the Saskatoon Police Station cells. Arctic railway sought instead of pipeline By STUART LAKE WHITEHORSE, Y.T. (CP) Mr. Justice Thomas Berger of the British Columbia Supreme Court was asked Thursday to consider an arctic railway as an alternative to a proposed Mackenzie Valley pipeline. The suggestion came from several sources as Judge Ber- ger concluded his Northern Canada preliminary hearings into the conditions that might be imposed should the federal government grant Canadian Arctic Gas Pipelines Ltd a right-of-way for the line. Judge Berger said he would decide after hearings May 6 in Ottawa whether his terms of reference empowered him to hear evidence on whether a railway would be preferable for moving arctic gas to southern markets. The judge has been hearing evidence in Northern Canadian centres on the procedures and practices that should be followed at main hearings expected to start this year. Northern groups also have asked him to consider such topics as native rights and the effects a pipeline would have on the economy, but he has de- clined to make any rulings on the scope of his mandate until he hears southern submissions. As in Yellowknife and Inuvik hearings earlier this week, Mr Justice Berger was told here that no pipeline should be built until native claims were settled. PLEDGES CO-OPERATION However, Chief Elizah Smith, head of the Council of Yukon Indians and chief of the Yukon Native Brotherhood, promised his organization would work with the judge to make his inquiry a success. But the Yukon Indians want the judge to visit in person all affected communities in the territory and to add native workers to his staff. They also seek funds to prepare for the hearings. Al Lueck. counsel for the In- dians, struck a new note when he asked that the northern hearings not start until the separate hearings of the National Energy Board are concluded and a decision made. Mr. Lueck said it made no sense to hear evidence on a right-of-way for the pipeline when the energy board might decide that a railway would best do the job. Then Canadian Arctic Gas's plans to start construction on the line by the winter of 1976 would have to be scrapped. Rails 'frustrate' gov't policies By BILL COULTHARD OTTAWA (CP) A western Conservative said Thursday government legislation to aid removal of railway facilities from city cores will need tough enforcement. Eldon Woolliams (Calgary North) listed cases of the rail- ways frustrating government policy, sometimes after assur- ing MPs they would carry it out. "In other words, if the rail- ways don't want to move their tracks out of the centre of cities, they will say yes to the government and decide no in their boardrooms." To applause from other MPs, including Urban Affairs Minister Ron Basford, who in- troduced the bill, Mr. Wool- hams said the railways will have to be forced to carry out the government's policy. All parties in the Commons agreed to give the bill quick passage They set a limit of two speakers from each party for second-reading debate. Mr. Woolliams spoke in committee of the whole after second reading, approval in principle, had been given. The bill would enable the government to expropriate railway property, if necessary, to get rights-of- way. terminals and yards out of the city core. It also provides more federal money to build grade crossings. Aide not privy to secrets BONN (AP) Chancellor Willy Brandt of West Germany told parliament today he never provided any secret files to a close personal aide who has been arrested on charges of spying for Communist East Germany. 'The agent was not instructed by me to deal with secret files because this did not belong to his Brandt told a special session Judge stops indiscriminate search f I 1 for San Francisco Zebra sniper SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Police tactics of stopping young blacks on the streets of this city in a fruitless search for the kill- ers of 12 whites have been ordered stopped by a lederal judge. Police said they would abide by the ruling, but continued their manhunt Only hours after police had issued revised guidelines which would have cut down the number of searches in their massive Zebra manhunt, United States District Judge Alfonso Zirpoli issued a temporary injunction against them Thursday. By that time, searches had been performed on about 600 young black men who fit one of two composite sketches of the persons police believe responsible for the random, unprovoked shootings of 18 whites since last November. Six of the victims survived. Speaking of the new police guidelines, Zirpoli said' "While the immediate pressure of wholesale stops and indiscriminate searches may have been withdrawn, the danger ot repetition has not necessarily been removed." He said the injunction was still necessary "in the interest of public tranquility." Nevertheless, the head of the Zebra investigation vowed "there will be no lessening of our efforts to apprehend the killer or killers." 1 ,v Agriculture 6 to food problem OTTAWA (CP) More in- tensive agricultural research was described Thursday night by a prominent government scientist as ''the key, perhaps the only key" to solving the in- creasing problem of world food supplies. Bert Migicovsky, director- general of the agriculture de- partment's research branch, was appearing before the Commons agriculture committee to discuss his 1974- 75 spending estimates He was replying to Alf Gleave Biggar) who had asked whether continued all-out research is considered vital and whether the multi-mil- lion-dollar investment is necessary. Dr Migicovsky said he would resign tomorrow if he found out extensive cuts in research financing was planned, especially in view 'of the world food situation and what I think it's going to be in 10 or 15 years He suggested the world food supply situation will become increasingly critical and said he based his prediction on information from organizations such as the United Nations' various agencies and the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development. Dr. Migicovsky's 1974-75 estimates total million, up from million in 1973- 74. His research staff includes more than 600 scientists with PhDs. The total estimates include million operating ex- penses, down from mil- lion last year; million capital expenses compared with none last year and million for pension programs, up from million. One of the areas being re- searched by his branch is the problem of increasing vegetable and animal production. On the latter, he defended the ban on diethylstilbestrol a cattle-fattening agent used again in the United States after a similar ban there DES is alleged to be toxic to humans although specific laboratory proof apparently is unavailable. If you 're going to Dr Migicovsky said, "you're going to err on the side of caution." He said the problem with all such feed additives is that the benefits have to be weighed against the potential hazards, regardless of how undefined those hazards are, In the case of DES, it was better to be safe than sorry. He told Bert Hargrave Medicine Hat) that another field of research, into improving crop yields, is expected to benefit Canadian producers. B.C. minister called 'disaster9 VICTORIA (CP) Mines Minister Leo Nimsick was called a "disaster" in the legislature Thursday night by Conservative Leader Scott Wallace as MLAs stretched out the debate on the minister's million in spending estimates. While skirting direct mention of the new Mineral Royalties Bill on the order paper, opposition MLAs ripped into Mr. Nimsick and the New Democratic Party administration for souring the climate in British Columbia with new, higher taxes on mining companies. "You people start off with the premise that there's something wrong with making a said Dr. Wallace (PC Oak Bay.) Alex Fraser (SC Cariboo) claimed that the downturn in exploration activity has thrown people out of work in the Kamloops area of the B.C. interior alone, although the area's MLA, Gerry Anderson (NDP Kamloops) interjected: "I don't believe it." Gordon Gibson (L North Vancouver-Capilano) said statistics showed the value of exploration work performed on mineral claims by mining companies has gone down steadily, from million in 1972, to million last year, with a forecast of only million in 1974 by the B.C. and Yukon Chamber of Mines. Mr. Nimsick said he expected a drop in claim staking because of new legislation enacted last year which doubled the value of work required each year on a claim to and increased registration fees. He also said the NDP had no objection to companies making a profit. "I'm glad to see them make a profit, because the higher the profit and the higher the price, the more we get." Later, Mr. Nimsick said he has "more important things to do here" than be in Japan with Premier Dave Barrett and Trade Minister Gary Lauk. Mr. Nimsick was asked why he didn't accompany Premier Barrett and Mr. Lauk on their trip to Japan and Hong Kong. "The minister says he wants a copper said Don Phillips (SC South Peace "Why didn't the minister of mines go to Mr. Nimsick announced earlier Thursday he wants a copper smelter in British Columbia. "We can look after the copper replied Mr. Nimsick. "We don't have to have Japs." Mr. Phillips said Mr. Nimsick's comment was a "slur against one of our greatest trading Cable television practices called 'theft, By BRUCE LEVETT WASHINGTON (CP) Certain cable-television practices in Canada were called "international piracy" by a United States congressman Thursday. A spokesman for the U S. TV industry described the practices as "stealing." Under debate in a one-day hearing of the House of Repre- sentatives inter-American af- fairs subcommittee were the policies of the Canadian Radio-Television Commission (CRTC) that encourage Canadian cable systems to eliminate commercials from American programs they pick out of the air at no cost The Canadian systems then are free, to substitute Canadian commercials or public affairs notices. Representative Thaddeus Dulski (Dem. N.Y.) asked the subcommittee to "come up with appropriate relief from this international economic piracy." Mitchell Wolfson, Florida financier and head of KVOS- TV in Bellingham, Wash., said that "for Canadians to use our Quebec CPP return 5% bigger OTTAWA (CP) While Quebec Pension Plan contributions bring an investment return averaging 10 per cent annually, Canada Pension Plan contributions return only five per cent, the Commons health committee was told Thursday. Health Minister Marc Lalonde said in reply to a question by Conservative Peter Reilly (Ottawa West) that Quebec has created "a dynamic" investment fund with the contributions while other provinces use the pension contributions to finance bond issues and other similar ventures. Mr. Reilly wanted to know why there is such a big differ- ence in return. Mr. Lalonde said that since the funds fall under provincial jurisdiction there is nothing the federal government can do other than urge the provinces to follow Quebec's lead and invest more wisely. products and delete our com- stealing." CALLS FOR SUSPENSION Chairman Dante Fascell (Dem. noting that Can- ada has said the situation still is under review, asked that the state department suggest Canada suspend the policy until the review is completed Statements by U S. witnesses were generally peppered with harsh words for the CRTC policy. Said Dulski: "The Canadian operators, with encouragement from the Canadian government, are actually mis- appropriating entertainment and other programs trbm U.S. stations and re-selling them for their own financial profit This "economic piracy" is "disturbing the friendly rela- tions between our two coun- tries." Vincent Wasilewski, president of the National Association of Broadcasters, said the association's opposition to the CRTC's policy "is a matter of principle which leaves no room' for compromise Philip Lind of Toronto, secretary of Rogers Cable Communications Ltd whose company is under suit by television stations in Buffalo, N.Y., said his firm supports the CRTC's in its attempt "to achieve a strong and independent cultural iden- tity." Under questioning by Representative Jack Kemp (Rep Lind admitted that Canadian cable systems were built on the free ability to pick up U.S. programming and that "now we're biting the hand that fed us David Mintz, general man- ager of KVOS, said his station goes into nearly British Columbia homes on a cable hook-up and "elimination of our commercials on the cable would, frankly, put us out of business." Wolfson said KVOS believes that "if the cables carry us they must carry us completely, commercials and all." BRIDGE RUG DRAPES LTD.
