NEB has to hold hearings on ethylene export permit OTTAWA (CP) Full public hearings will be required before the National Energy Board can decide on an application from Dow Chemical Canada Ltd. for a licence to export ethylene, the board said Thursday. Board secretary R.A. Stead said the decision was reached following a review of a Federal Court decision handed down in the case last week. The court ruled the board could not decide the matter on the basis of hearings held last June since the hearings did not conform to board regulations. Public hearings were not or- dered by the court because of a change in board regulations June 20 which gave it the right to approve exports by order without holding hearings. However, Mr. Stead said the board is not prepared to dispose of the case by issuing an order without a hearing. One further step remains open to both the board and can appeal the Federal Court decision to a higher court. Both Mr. Stead and a spokesman for Dow said an appeal is being considered. C.L. Mort, vice-president of Dow in charge of development, said in an interview from his Sarnia, Ont., office that the company had not considered whether it will go through a public hearing. ''We've already been through five hearings federally and in the province of Alberta during the last three he said. The Dow executive said his first concern is "the serious exposure" of the company in money already spent on the project. Cost of equipment and pipe already ordered was increasing by million a week and by June the company's investment totalled million. Dow says its application to export ethylene. used in the manufacture of plastic, is an integral part of a project for which the board has already given its approval. WASHINGTON (AP) Having shed the legal armor that protected him in the White House, Richard Nixon is about to receive a subpoena that may be the harbinger of further legal entanglements. The subpoena was filed Thursday by lawyers for John Ehrlichman, Nixon's former domestic adviser. It seeks Nixon's testimony as a defence witness in Ehrlichman's coming con- spiracy trial arising from the Watergate cover-up. Addressed to "Richard M. Nixon, Presidential Compound, San Clem en te, Calif.." the subpoena was mailed to the U.S. marshal's office in Los Angeles for delivery to Nixon, probably in the next couple of days. The subpoena was accom- panied by cheque for to cover Nixon's travel expenses and daily witness fees. While president, Nixon re- ceived court protection from subpoenas requiring his testi- mony, though he was compelled by the Supreme Court to comply with subpoenas for tapes and documents in the Watergate investigation. It's unclear what sort of testimony Nixon would be expected to give on Ehrlichman's behalf. One Ehrlichman lawyer cited a gag rule laid down by U.S. District Judge John Sirica as the reason why he couldn't spell out for reporters the purpose of the subpoena. Ehrlichman and five other defendants are scheduled to stand trial Sept. 9. However, three, Ehrlichman. H. R. Haldeman and former attorney-general John Mitchell were joined Thursday in their pleas for de- lay by special Watergate prosecutor Leon Jaworski, who said he needs more time to study new presidential tapes. Sirica set a hearing Monday to deal with those requests. Nixon's presidential immunity apparently thwarted the Watergate grand jury's original resolve to indict him as another member of the alleged conspiracy. Instead, the indictment handed down March 1 listed Nixon as an unindicted co-con- spirator. Jaworski and his staff now are studying whether Nixon should be indicted as a full- fledged conspirator. The American Bar Association's legislative body went on record Thursday in favor of the proposition that no one should get special treatment in facing prosecution for alleged crimes. No reports about rats, says director KINGSTON, Ont. (CP) Dr. George Scott, director of the Regional Medical Centre located in the former Kingston penitentiary, said Thursday he has received no complaints about rats infesting the 100-year-old building.

BRIDGE RUG DRAPES LTD. FREE ESTIMATES Phone 329-4722 COLLEGE MALL Toronto transit strike may last another week TORONTO (CP) As Metropolitan Toronto commuters prepared for a fifth straight day without public transit today, the dollar-and-cents impact of a strike by Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) employees began to surface. Members of Metro council were handed a document Thursday estimating the cost of acceding to the total package of demands set down by Division 113 of the Amalgamated Transit Union as about million over two years. The report also estimated that an extra million would be spent in the first year of the contract and a further million over the established budget in the second, if all union demands are met. The document stressed that the figure includes "reducing the split shifts, increased pensions, increased holidavs. overtime and double time Saturdays and prime union demands. Even optimists, who last Monday predicted only a week-long transit walkout, are expecting to at least another full working week of hitchhiking, bicycling, car pools and extended hikes down city streets packed with automobiles. As provincial government mediator J D. Speranzini met with the two sides behind closed doors, negotiators were reported to have edged into discussion of one of the most contentious issues in the strike and one which has aroused the most public shifts. "TTC drivers want shifts, that often takes up to 13 hours to complete, shortened so that they can spend more time with their families. Montreal faces weekend without transportation MONTREAL (CP) Mon- trealers, without subway service during the last 10 days, face the weekend without any public transportation, it was an- nounced today by Lawrence Hanigan, chairman of the Problems facing population meet BUCHAREST, Romania (Reuter) "Take care of the people, and the population will take care of reads the slogan for the United Nations World Population Conference. Whether delegates from around the world who attend the two-week conference beginning here Monday will agree is a different story. The conference marks the first time that governments, as opposed to assorted experts, will gather to seek solutions to the world's population explosion. The task will not be easy. Brazil, for instance, says it needs more people to develop its full economic potential. A number of African countries say they resent being told by developed Western countries that they should curb their birth rates. And some delegates may feel they're up against more than they can handle when they realize that during their two-week conference, about 4.9 million births will occur, and 1.9 million persons will die. With .the net gain of three million in just two weeks, the world's population will approach four billion. Some persons will be involved in the conference, in- cluding those attending the In- ternational Youth Population Conference preceding the UN conference, and the independent Population Tribune running alongside it. In an effort to cut down on possible friction between developed and developing nations, the United Nations prepared a careful groundwork. The conference, to which 148 have been invited, was preceded by four international symposiums and five regional meetings. transit commission. Mr. Hanigan told a news conference bus service will be withdrawn by early Saturday morning but will be restored by Monday morning to permit management personnel to per- form repairs normally done by the striking maintenace workers. The decision to withdraw weekend service was made because some of the commission's buses are beginning to "show signs of weakness without their regular he said.
