For weeks the opposition has hammered Premier Peter Lougliccd's Tory administra- tion (or appointing and approv- ing expenses (or task forces composed entirely of Conserva- tives, without first Retting ap- proval from the whole legisla- ture. Thursday the Conservatives rammed through a motion call- ing Over objections from the oppo- sition, the Conservatives Insist- ed on referring to the former )oard as a "caucus commil- :ee" and Identifying it wilh Iheir own all-Conservative task [orces. TABLES FILES Provincial Treasurer Gordon Miniely tabled flies that show- ed the Socred board com- posed of MLAs: Alf Hooke, N. B. James, Floyd Baker, R. E. Ansley and Bert Bour- cier, all since left the legisla- ture spent from 1037 to 41. Roy Farran, Conservative MIA for Calgary North Hill, charged that the board was sal up lo promote party principles for disclosure of the of a five-man ''S o c I a 1 i was to p r o m o t e Sncial Credit Board" set up In 1M7.

Frank Appleby, Conservative for Athabasca said a "group o insurgents within the parly' (old the late premier VS'illiam Aborhart In tlie 30s that If h didn't do something to promote Social Credit, they wouli" "cross the floor." Speaker Gerry Amerongcu cut Mr. Appleby off. "ff there is a permissibl degree of irrelevance w have exceeded said th' speaker. Gordon Taylor, Socred for Drumhelier, protested tha the Social Credit board wa set up to promote economics not party politics and was fo the benefits of all Albertans regardless of their political a: filiation.

A hint that the unions are .villulrawing from the brink of a national crisis, ready to accept Hie new reforms as facts of life, -nme as eight major union lead- ers met with Heath. They arc reported to have np- ic-aled for some independent 'orm ot mediation and concilia- ion service as a menus ot avoiding a legal battle before .he newly-established national .ncluslrial relations court. In Iwo crucial test cases be- fore the court, judgments were drought down against the un- ions. An earlier suggestion by the Roveming nine-million-mem- ber Trades Union Congress that the court and its law be ignored was abruptly revised as the TUC advised unions to obey the court's ruling. The TUC even advised the big transport union to pay Iho c o n r t's fines of levied because the w- Ion's Liverpool dockers ccntair ued to block container-truck traffic against the court's order. RETHEAT LIKELY Defiant to the end, the union was ready lo allow the court to seize its assets rather than pay the lines. But it appeared Ihe union was ready to retreat. Heath, adhering to pre-elec- tion pledges, has made union re- form a key element in his gov- ernment policy. Tiie fact that the union lead- ers, led by Vic Feather, TUC secretary-general, agreed to meet Heath suggested to Brit- ain's national press that boll FROM THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY PROVINCE OP ALBERTA A NATURAL RESOURCE REVENUE PLAN FOR ALBERTA Ro: Crude Oil Revenue Return to the Province Interested organisations or group; arc invited to make submissions on this matter to the Standing Com- miltes of Public Affairs, Agriculture and Education of Ihe Alberta Legislature.

New technique improves vision NEW YORK (AP) _ A nev nd still use of onlacL ienses promises In free omo people from the need to vcar cither contact lenses or rdiuary eye glasses at all, hree optometrists report. They have been fitting pa- Icnts with a scries of contact e n s e s especially shaped to the curvature ol the cor- nea or "window" of the eye. In cases where the cornea Is nvolved In defective vision, Ihe esults have sometimes been dramatic, said Drs. Harry Hol- ander, Jerry Greenberg and Richard Weintraub of the Sight improvement Centre in New York City. Thcy presented a report to he Optomclric Council of New York state. Dr. Hollander said results Finiau's show slar is dead LONDON (AP) Howes, who starred In Finian's Rainbow and was one of the brightest stars of the London stage for more than 30 years, died in a nursing home Thurs day nighl. He was 70. He was the father of Sally Ann Howes, an actress and singer who now lives In llu United Staels. He hit his peak ol popularity In musicals of the 1930s. In the 1960s, Howes starred In the musical Finian's Rainbow in New York, London and Mel bourne, Australia. ilh Iho technique, which hai iccn named orthokcralology, ;c sometimes been dramatic. Sonic patients with eyes seemr; only 20-200, legally consi- leicd blind, have had vision im- proved lo a 20-20, considered wrfccl, in less than a year, and able lo see without lenses o( in) kind two years following he completion of the optometrist said. QUESTION PERMANENCY Optometrists are specialists who examine eyes and fit con- act lenses and eye glasses to correct visual defects. One orilhalmologist, a physi- cian-surgeon who specializes in eve cave and diseases, when asked for comment agreed that contact lenses can alter Ihe shape ol the cornea but he ques- tioned whether results of the technique would be permanent. A "retainer" contact lens might have to be worn occasion- ally or repeatedly to maintain Ihe altered shape of the cornea, he said, lie also questioned whether the technique had been proven to be safe. Dr. Hollander said other oplc- mclrisls had reported beneficial results of the leclmique, particu- larly in treating near-sighted- ness. Results have been best in children and young adults, and perhaps one-third of patients might benefit from the method, he said. Research Is being conducted by the National Eya Research Foundation to analyse results from successful and unsuccess- ful treatment, said.
