Part of the probation order stipulated Salisbury was to at- tend a psychiatrist and follow such Ir'eatmcnt as was pre- scribed. Court was iold the charge re- sulted from the July 23 assault on Hoy Moss in a local hotel. Moss was reported struck on (lie head and body several limes wilh Ihe butt of a .22 calibre rifle. The butt of the rifle was re- ported ..lo have been broken in at least five places. In setting the maximum sen- tence Judge L. W.

He said he hoped by requesting psychiatric treat- ment for him and imposing the additional year of probation with treatment Salisbury could be made fit lo occupy a place in society.

Premiers tackle fiscal problems VICTORIA (CP) Premier Ed Schi'eycr of Manitoba says fiscal questions will probably occupy one-third of Ihe pre- miers' conference wlu'ch opened hero loday. During an impromptu news conference in a hotel lobby, Mr. Selireyer said Wednesday night ho intends lo talk ahnut Ihe m- pncl of (he new federal budget and decision (o with- draw from cslatc fax. He's also concerned aboul oral government plans to curtail spending on sharcd-cosl pro- grams in hcali'h caic and cduca- lion, a move which would leave Ihe provinces ivith a greater share of Ihc bill. Asked what Die first lopic of would be when Ihc two day conference opens, Premier Allan Blakcnoy of Sns- kr'clicwnn said he didn't know. "nut I undcrsland that Mr Slrnm (Allierla Premier Harry ,S'iiom) will bo here for only one day nnd that cffoil.s will he niride lo flccommod.ile him." AUIKllTA HAS HI.KCTION Allxrla is in Ihc midst of an cloc'.ion campaign, wilb the So- cial Crcdil government seeking lo remain in power Aug. 30. Mr. niakcney said one issue ho will raise is the provision of education services lo Indians, lip suM Indians in Sask.ilchc- wan would like lo lake advan- tage of provincial education fa- cilities, hut are afraid that Iheir treaty rights will be eroded if Ollawa surrenders jurisdiction over Indian education to the provinces. Premier Gerald Regan of Nova Scotia said pollution is on the conference agenda. "I wish lliere would an agreemcnl by the provinces on pollution, so thai no province be soft on pollution, and sn that no province would lw a pollution Mr. Regan said. He said he is concerned that a province might reduce ils stand- ards of pollution control in an attempt to attract industry. Asked about the charier on the conslittilion worked out here in June and later I'cjcctcd by Quebec, Mr. Regan said: "We all recognized thai there was a possibility of rejection although we thought that we had a for- mula that was susceptible to ngrecmcnt." P r c m i e r Roherl Bourassa, ivho rejected Ihe charter be- cause it did not fully meet (Jucb" demands for jurisdiction over social welfare programs, hnd indicalcd he might seek pri- vate talks wilh Ihc other pre- miers on Ihe constitution.

EVERYTHING IS GOING UP This aerial shot shows Vancouver's highly-populated West End apartmenl district which shows dozens of high-rise apartments springing up here, there and almost everywhere. Everything from carting junk lo experimenting with mushrooms Canadian youngsters doing their own thing OTTAWA (CP) Wilii a i 1 1 i o n federal govern- ment grubstake, Cana- dian youngsters are doing of their own things this summer. They're painting and clean- ing, building nature trails and parks, carting junk from river beds and banks. They're also: Fashioning wildlife sanctu- aries, spotting pollution and trying to lick it; 'giving advice on the law and abortion, how lo get welfare to stretch the consumer dollar with best buys Making a film with ani- mated spaghetti, experiment- ing with mushroom growing and preparing a rocket for blast-off; Sending a symphony orches- tra on a tour of Newfoundland outsorts, skindiving for his- toric wreckage off Nova Sco- tia's Lcuisbourg fortress, run- ning Iheir own theatre in Charlottelown and taping the recollections of New Bruns- wick First World War vet- erans; Studying the sociological significance of gambling in teaching yoga in On- tario, studying tha operations of magistrate courts in Mani- loba. fixing bicycles for free use in Saskatchewan, tearing down oulhouses in Alberta and studying strip mining re- habilitation in British Colum- bia. Alcng the way thcv have launched such group appella- tions as A.II.O.Y., A.r.D., B.O.P.. C.O.P.E, L.I.V.E., S.U.C.H., S.P.O.T.and T.R.l.P All this action comes under the Opportunities for Youth program, designed to get high school and univcrsily students lo work en projects they chose and arc running themselves in a summer when jobs are scarce. TOUCH Initiated by slate secre- LaiVs department under Ger- ard Pelletier, the program has generated some hot criti- cal blasts. A good part of S24.7 million of our tax money is gcirg lo be blown on badly-as- sessed, ill-organized, wasteful and nutty The Globe and Mail of Toronto predicted in a recent editorial. II cited Ihc case of two Americans living in Prince Gc.L'.rge, U.C., wro were con- viclcd cf marijuana posses- sion afl.rr gelling approval for n yciilli granl tj finance a "farm" project. The program's image wasn't helped by some politi- cal ham handcduc.ss regard- ing underground ncwsiNipers when grants were approved for Rcgina's Prairie Tire and Vance -ivcr's Georgia Straight bill wore Inter killed. Hill journalism s 1, 11 d c n I Lynda Clclland of Alia., got for a sum- mer youth newspaper there to be called Free and Easy after stipulating in her application: "We will not allow any pro- fanity lo be printed." Another complaint was that Quebec got special treatment and the bulk of the money. Grants in Quebec did indeed total about million, more than any other province or area. Ontario, for example, is getting about million, the Atlantic provinces about 52.8 million, the Prairi.es and the territories about million and British Columbia about million. Cam MacWe, program co- ordinator, said the large num- ber cf jobless students in Quebec pushed up tin total there. Another beef was that Op- portunities for Youth was es- tablished at the last minute. The rush lo get it going meant that thinning about 12.000 applications down to tte approved projects wasn't as thorough as it could have been. Program staffers tell this story to illustrate ths point: An application came in for to fund a program called "Get Back" at Guern- sey Cove, P.E.f. It was to pro- vide "a rest for bumed-up or burned-out civil and a cheque was about to be issued before a staffer admit- ted it was a joke. Established youth activity bodies added to the critical clamor when their proposals were rejected by the hundreds because they did not meel the program criteria. Approved projects have been broken into categories. The largest, 37 per cent, is social service. This covers such things as the to students at Blairmore, Alta., to tear down old shacks and Rare birds in no danger as fires sweep region CALGARY (CP) IJghtning strikes which moved through Wood Buffalo National Park have started 11 fires, all o( winch were burning out of con- trol. Two of Uie fires were in the region of UK whsoping crane nesting grounds but were mov- ing away and the birds were in no immediate danger. One of the fires was burning along Highway 5 between Fort Smith and Hay River, N.W.T., and the road has been tempor- arily closed. Alxiut SO firefighters were at work but their efforts were lampered by high tempera- -Ures and dense smoke which was moved about by strong winds. Because of smoke, no esti- was available on die I arreage burned, the parks I branch said. Seven bulldozers, two water bombers and two helicopters were being used in the fight. Additional men and equip- ment would be added if the sit- uation worsened, a spokesman said. The park covers square miles and straddles the Alberta Northwest Territories border. It is also the home of a large herd of buffalo, but the parks branch said the animals arc highly mobile and in litlle dan- ger. BLAZE NEAR BANFF In southern Alberta, a 14-acre blaze was burning in the Bow River Forest, about 45 miles northwest of Calgary and just east of Banff National Park. I About 50 men and six air craft, including four watei bombers, were fighting the Ilames. The fire began July 30 will a lightning strike but Tunsday night doubled in size. Forest superintendent L. P. Gauthier said the blaze was burning along a ridge at feet al'itude and was difficull In reach. COURSE DIVERTED FORT SMITH, N.W.T. (CP) A wind change has diverted Ihs course of a massive forest fire away from the new Na- hanni River National Park, forestry spokesman said Wednesday. Tlie fire lias already burned acres in the southwest corner of the Northwest Territo- ries. TRIPLE CRASH Four persons died as a result of ihis crash near Ihc norlhwcslern Alberta town of Peace River. The wreckage is the aflermath of tbrce separate but related crashes. A Peace River couple and a truck driver were killed in an inilial crcih; momonls laler a car crashed into llio wreckage, injuring five.

CULTURAL FLAVOR It includes for law students in Winnipeg to ana- lyse variable factors entering into sentences handed out in magistrate courts; for those student divers locating and examimng wreckage n.ear the Lonisbourg fcTt; for 10 Montreal students to de- termine how betting effects the lives cf Quebecers; for three Vancouver students to study damage done by strip mining in the Elk Valley area of B.C.: and for Freder- icton students to tape recoi'J those veterans' memoirs. Nineteen per cent are classed as recreation or sport. This covers the community bi- cycle project in Saskatoon, where three students and 27 volunteers are using to fix up old bicycles, lending them at no cost to anyone who wants to ride. And the for the Kundalini Yoga Work- shop in Toronto. About 14 per cent have a cultural flavor, including the for the Calos Youth Or- chestra of St. Jchii's to lour isolaled Newfoundland com- munities. It also covers (he to give students expe- rience in all branches of the t h e a I r at Confederation Centre in Charlottctown. The other two pel' cent defy classification. Like "Spaghetti where students in Thunder Bay, Ont., have been granted SI ,220 for an animated film described as "a light hearted throe-minute look at spa- ghetti." Or the ?10.260 for 17 Rouyn.

The biggest single grant, was to file Canadian Association for a Healthy En- vironment in Windsor, Ont. It covers 49 individual environ- ment projects in Ontario, in- cluding oil spillage at Kings- ton, effects of Toronto urban growth and noise, mercury and phosphate pollution in the Windsor area. In Ontario, students at Car- leton University in Ottawa were awarded to design a pollution-free car. Another Ottawa group got to de- sign a cheap, clean and noise- less steam turbine engine. Saskatchewan's Environ- ment Canada drew S4G.OOO for a survev of pulp and paper in- dustry damage lo the environ- ment along the Saskatchewan River ;yslem. Whether the program is boon or boondoggle will re- main a political debating pcint but one thing is certain. The country won't be (lie. same at tr.j end of the sum- as it was at the begin- ning.
