DRIVE SOUTH Life jail sentences upheld ANKARA (AP) A five- judge criminal appeals court upheld Friday a lower court decision sentencing three Americans to life prison terms on conviction of conspiring to smuggle drugs into Turkey.

"I know legislation is ready to give us a modern piece of legislation where every one is treated said Marcel Prud'homme (Montreal St. He did not elaborate on what the changes might be. Rod Blaker (Montreal Lach- ine-Lakeshore) called for re- moval of the preferential status for British subjects and abolition of that term in reterence to Canadians. If it is necessary to swear allegiance to the Queen, "then let's at least amend the act so we swear allegiance to the Queen of Canada." he said. Outside the House. Mr. Bla- ker said Ins comments are personal, not necessarily government policy.' Other changes said to be pending: Reduction of the residency requirement for citizenship application to three years from five; Canadians "in reasonable circumstances" to hold citizenship in another country. with so-called good character as a pre- requisite of naturalization, on grounds it is difficult to define: of provisions that discriminate between the sexes. In the Commons, Mr. Blaker said preferential treatment for British subjects, exempting them from pre-citizenship ex- aminations, discriminates against other persons seeking to become naturalized Canadians. Once Canadian citizenship is obtained, it will no longer be revocable if the government carries through with the draft bill. Citizenship now can be re- voked from naturalized Cana- dians for a variety of criminal offences, or by renunciation of citizenship and acquisition of another nationality Equal treatment for men and women was brought up in a private member's bill introduced by Grace Maclnnis (NDP Vancouver Her bill, which did not come to a vote, would have provided that children born abroad of a Canadian mother would have the right to be natural-born Canadian citizens. Under the Citizenship Act, only children born abroad of a Canadian father or an unmarried Canadian mother have such a right. Mrs. Maclnnis said she has received letters from several women, married to Americans, who are concerned because their children born in the United States are not entitled to automatic Canadian citizenship.

Abortion doctor fights acquittal overturning MONTREAL (CP) The Quebec Court of Appeal has overturned the acquittal of Dr. Henry Morgentaler on a charge of having performed an illegal abortion. In handing down its decision Friday, the court ordered Dr. Morgentaler to appear before the judge who presided at his trial for passing of sentence. Claude-Armand Sheppard, Dr. Morgentaler's lawyer, said he will appeal the latest decision to the Supreme Court of Canada Mr Justice Paul Casey, one of the five justices of the Que- bec Court of Appeal who stud- led the case, said Dr. Morgentaler apparently made no effort to find out why the woman who had undergone the abortion could not comply with the law by applying for a legal abortion. All five justices agreed with the decision to overturn the lower court's acquittal of Dr. Morgentaler. The files are being returned to Mr Justice James K. Huge- sen of the Court of Queen's Bench, the justice who presided at Dr. Morgentaler's trial, and it will be up to him to impose sentence. MAY BE DELAY Crown Prosecutor Louis Robichaud said he will ask Mr. Justice Hugessen to hand down the sentence next week, but the filing of an appeal will automatically delay passing of sentence The 50-year-old Montreal doctor was acquitted last Nov. 13 after the defence based its argument on Article 45 of the Criminal Code which states a doctor performing with care and skill an operation that is medically necessary cannot be prosecuted Dr. Morgentaler went on trial Oct. 18 after being charged with performing an illegal abortion on an unmarried 26-year-old student. Maximum sentence for such an offence is life imprisonment Mr. Sheppard said the trial had marked the first time Ar- ticle 45 had been used in an abortion case. The defence lawyer sought to prove the operation was necessary to the physical and mental health of the patient. Dr. Morgentaler refused comment on the court reversal until he and his lawyer have studied the verdict but he said he was "very surprised." He told the court during his trial he has performed to abortions during the last two years and it was not up to him to persuade or discourage a woman from undergoing such an operation. Dr. Morgentaler still faces three other charges of having performed illegal abortions following a police raid on his clinic last August.
