Russian Spy Ship Foiled In Snooping Attempt CAPE KENNEDY, Fla. (AP) U.S. Navy officials feel they prevented a Soviet spy ship from obtaining vital information about the first submarine firing of a dummy multi-warhead Po- seidon missile, even though the Russian vessel made a daring dash that almost resulted in col- lision at sea. "We don't know for sure what they were after but they sure didn't get a navy spokesman said. The incident oecured this week when the nuclear sub James Wootco VVATCHBAND CALENDAR OFFER!

The Soviet trawler Laptev was kept yards from the Sub by the U.S. destroyer escort Calcaterra until the Poseidon darted to the surface. Twenty minutes later, the Laptev suddenly cut in front of the destroyer and raced full speed toward the bow of a sup- port ship, the Observation Is- land. The support ship's command- ing officer, Capt. William C. Dotson, twice sounded a warn- ing signal and ordered his en- gines reversed. The ship stopped dead as the Laptev japped across the bow. The Russians were after 10 cushion-sized pieces of a plastic membrane that covered the launching tube in the deck of Hie Madison to prevent water from flowing in before the mis- sile was fired. Although {he Soviet crew members tossed out nets and used grappling hooks, American sailors in a whale boat quickly salvaged all 10 pieces. The navy said the segments were not classified and did not know why the Russians so eager to get them. Forest Fire Spreads PEACE RIVER (CP) A forest fire on the western border of Wood Buf- falo National Park in northern Alberta today spread to a 000-acre blaze. Wood Buffalo Park strad- dles the Alberta-Northwest Territories border. Forestry officials said about acres were burning in the park with acres in Al- serta and about acres in the Territories. The fire is burning through scrub brush and non-merchant- ab'e timber. Twenty fires were burning in the Footner Lake forest dis- trict, which includes Wood Buffalo Park, about 240 miles north of Peace River, Three of the fires were out of control, one was under par- tial control and the rest were contained. About 200 men arc fighting the Wood Buffalo Park fire aid- ed by helicopters and water bombers. Meanwhile, about 10 new fires were started Monday night by lightning in the Rain- bow and Hay Lakes area 200 miles northeast of Peace River. All of the fires were small. Price Rise Slowdown Forecast OTTAWA (CP) Prices ma. UM> in this year by a much as they did in 1969, but slowing down in the rate of in crease will be more evident ir 1971, says the Organization fo Economic Co-operation and De- velopment. The 22-nation body based in Paris abo says in an cconomii survey of Canada that there wil be increasing under-utilization of Canadian industrial capacity during 1970, and the unemploy ment rate for the whole year will average between 5.5 and six per cent despite slower growtl of the labor force. The report released in Paris and received here in advance o publication was prepared by DECD officials with help from Canadian authorities, and ap proved by the organization's economic and development re- view committee in May. That was before Canada set the dollar free to find its own level in international exchange markets and the governmenl here revised some of its anti-in- flation policies. The OECn's assessment of the Canadian outlook, for in stance, is based on an assump- tion that retail credit controls would be in effect by now. The government announced in March it would introduce such Lloyd's Writes Rare Policy LONDON (Reuters) Lloyd's underwriters have agreed to insure a man against suffering the same fate as the ancient Greek poet Aeschylus. The customer's name and premium were not dis- closed, but the insurance men feel sure they won't pay out. Aeschylus died when a passing eagle dropped a tortoise on his head. controls, but dropped the plan when it set the dollar free May 31. Prices rose 4.5 per cent in Canada last year, as measured by the average of 12 monthly in- creases in the consumer price index. They were 1.26 per cent higher at mid-year than last De- cember, and the 12-month rate of increase has slowed to 3.2 per cent from 4.6. Some gradual slowing in the rate of price increase within the year was foreseen by OECD. But it said: "The result will depend on the effects of easing demand pres- sure, the amount of success in promoting voluntary wage and price restraint, and the amount of deceleration in price trends achieved abroad. :The moderation of price rises through such factors is ex- pected to have its major effect in 1971, but there may be some gradual slowdown of increases within the present year." OECD said inflation, up to the Toclciys Show-times time of the organization's re- view of the Canadian situation, "proved surprisingly resistant to policy measures." It cau- tioned against relaxing anti-in- flation policies too soon, and added: 'It is clearly important to avoid a resurgence of demand which would increase pressures on resources and fuel inflation- ary expectations. The mainle-' nance of a certain margin of slack is undoubtedly a neces- sary condition for restoring bet- ter price stability." On labor and employment, the survey said the growth of job opportunities will be weak. Pro- ductivity gains may be slower in 1970 than in 1869, when they amounted to only 1.2 per cent per person employed in com- mercial industry.
