Mayor Sykes said the police report, which has been in bis wssession for two or three weeks, indicates that there were warnings from time to ime about funds being misused but "there doesn't seem to have been much oVme" in some departments.

Headmaster WiBiani William- son, 65, who has 116 boarders at bis school, said: "I expect Viscount Linley back tomorrow. He usually comes by train, but his parents may come with him because of all the fuss." The school is four miles from East Grinstead, in the London stockbrokers' commuting belt. Lord Linley is under round- the-clock police guard and pre- sumed to be at Kensington Pal- ace, the London home of Prin- cess Margaret and Lord Snow- don. Two London newspapers re- ported receiving telephone calls about the threals to the Queen's nephew. The first came anonymously to The Daily Sketch. "I shouldn't be talking to you would cut my throat if they said a voice over the line. The man asked the newspaper to help persuade the police to lake Uie kidnap plot seriously. The second call was over- heard by a businessman over a cross line. This report said there was talk of being paid for making the snalch. area of Gladstone as a precau- tionary measure. At Gretna, a portion of pro- vincial Highway 30 was dug up to allow water to run off and sandbag dikes, were put up In tow areas. A little local flooding has oc- curred along the Bed south of Winnipeg but there are no ma- jor problems areas. Late reports from Gladstone indicated that about one-third of the town .was under water and the local school had been dosed.

Albert Richardson, president of the New Brunswick New Demo- cratic Party, proposed Saturday Maritime union as a means of the Atlantic region what he described as the 'eventual separation" of Quebec from Canada.
