British Columbia is turning its pnrtion of the of Wat-Hop from sea to z. provincial high- way.

It :nade ihe suggestion in a submission lo the Energy Re- sources Conservation Board Prices rise rale .lower in cities OTTAWA fCP) The con- sumer price rise in July ran at n lower rate in principal cities across Canada than in the coun- try generally. A report from Statistics Can- ada shows that in Ottawa the index rose seven-tenths of one per cent in July, the only city to come close to the country-wide Increase of eight-tenths of one per cent for July over June. All the other city increases re- ported were below the country- wide advance: Halifax and Montreal, six-tenths of one per cent; Saint John, N.B., Toronto, Thunder Bay, Edrronton and Calgary, five-tenths; Saskatoon, Regina and Vancouver, four- tenths; St. John's, Nfld., three- tenths; Quebec City and Winni- peg, two-tenths. 300 SUNGLASSES to choose from AVAILABLE IN YOUR RX OPTICAl PRESCRIPTION CO which is hearing an applica- tion by Aqiiitane Company of Canada Ltd. to increase sul- phur dioxide discharge by 400 per cent from its Ham River plant. MAKE APPEAL A. A. Rytz of Edmonton, chairman of the Rocky Moun- tAin section o[ the institute, said the appeal was made "in light of the diffculties experi- enced by residents of the Pin- cher Creek area in obtaining redress for damages suf- fewd." In Pincher Creek, residents around gas plants complained cf sulphur dioxide fumes in 1965 and earlier this monlh 15 families accepted a out- of-court settlement. Mr. Rytz said once the guide- lines are established they should be publicized before ap- plications such as the one from in Trans-Canada gone was the Canadin maple leaf. Soon the entire 550-mile sec- tion nf Ihe highway, from Vic- toria lo Yobo National Park on the Alberta Border, nill carry the new signs. But Highways Minister Wes- ley Black was unavailable for commenl.

"Specifically, we wish to know how a citizen of Alherta, if deprived of income or his nor- mal enjoyment of the forests of the region containing the Ram River plant, might proceed to obtain compensation for his loss, should such occur." OPPOSE APPROVAL The Alberta Fish and Game Association also entered a pre- sentation urging the expansion of the plant not be approved. The plant, west of Red Deer, was approved in 1970 with per- mission to process 220 million cubic feet of sour gas daily and discharge 82 long tons of sul- phur dioxide into the air. The current application re- quests permission to process on additional I (52 million cubic feet of gas daily with a maxi- mum sulphur dioxide emission of 336 long tons a day for up to a year after going into op- eration.

Heath denounces Lynch for tensions in Ulster LONDON' CAP) Relations "In the event of the continua- between Britain and the Repub- lic of Ireland plummeted today following a bitter attack by Prime Minister Edward Heath on Irish Premier Jack Lynch for "unacceptable interference" in the affairs of embattled Northern Ireland. In a bristling cable late Thursday night, Heath de- nounced Lynch for trying lo stir up tension, bluntly him Northern Ireland is part of the United Kingdom and poured cold water on Lynch's hopes of an all-Ireland summit with Brit- in. Lynch earlier cabled Heath, who had just ended crisis talks with Northern Ireland's pre- mier, Brian Faulkner, a warn- ing on attempting "military so- ulions" in the North. Almost as file two clashed, Northern Ireland viol- ence claimed its 29th life in 12 rtays and a gun raid on a Bcl- fnst by two masked men put three of them British soldiers on leave from West hospital. Eighly-seven people, including of them civilians, now have died in two years of strife.

He referred to the Roman Catholic minority's move lo oppose F a u I k n e r 's Protestant Unionist party gov- ernment with widespread campaign of store strikes and non-payment of bills and taxes. Lynch said he was prepared to attend a meeting "of all in- terested Lon- don and both sides in to find a solution "without prej- udice to the aspiration of the great majority of Irish people to the reunification of Ireland." Heath, in terms said by some He declared equality of treat- ment for everyone is both Lon- don and Belfast policy and told Lynch: "By seeking to obscure Uiis fact you do no service to any of Ihe people of Northern Ireland. He emphasized the British Army was operating against armed terrorists, many of whose activities originate in or were supported from Lynch's republic. And Heath added: "I cannot accept that anyone oulside Uie U.K. can participate in meet- ings designed to promote the po- litical development of any part of the U.K." Lynch's support for civil diso- bedience, he declared, was "cal- culated to do the maximum PREMIER JACK LYNCH gives reminder qualified observers to be un- matched in London-Dublin ex- changes since partition in 1922, retorted Lynch's cable was "un- justified in its content, unac- ceptable in its attempt to inter- fere in the affairs of the U.K. and can in no way contribute to the solution of the problems in Northern Ireland." EDMONTON (CP) Andy Russell of Waterloo Park, and Rene Belisle of Montreal won Thieu hits problem in election race SAIGON CAP) The U.S. government was reported today considering withholding or cut- ting aid to the South Vietnam- ese government if President Nguyen Van Thieu is the only candidate in the Oct. 3 presiden- tial election.

Andy Russell wins citation at Canadian parks meet DUONG MIN1I Withdraws from race only one candidate in the race. These sources said Bunker re- ayed this warning from Presi- dent Nixon to Minh during an Hh-hour effort Thursday night o persuade the general to stay in Ihe race. Bunker relumed earlier Thursday from Washing- m. The sources said a threat to reduce or cul off aid might 'orce Thieu to postpone or can- cel the election. But one source said he thought a postponement unlikely. "I think that ThJCH has al- made up his mind." this source said. "He anticipated hat he might be the only candi- date and bad apparently de- cided (o ride it out." Bunker's conversation with Minh failed to deter the general. calling for strict federal limi- tations on waterfront develop- ment on public shorelines.

Incumbent Social Credit can- India holds 200 Pakistani civilians NEW DELHI fAP) An In- d i a n government spokesman said today "about 200" West Pakistani civilians are being de- tained by India in a camp near the East Pakistani border, but he denied they are being held hostage in an itlempt to save the life of Sheikh Mujibur Rah- man. "This is said the spokesman in commenting on a report in the Brandon, Man., Sun, which said India was hold- ing the Pakistani civilians on behalf of the Bangla Desh gov- ernment-in-exile. "They arc not hostages for the Bangla Desh the spokesman said. "They are being detained be- cause they entered India ille- gally, without and for ofher violations."

During the 1067 election, Mr. Morris polled votes compared willi Ut'l for Conservative candidate Bob McKnight. Earlier Thursday, Mr. Strom visited Bashaw and was greet- ed by about 100 people at a breakfast garden party on the mayor's lawn. Later he drew 200 persons at a theatre meet- ing in Hanna.

The uiuged insects which appeared in the downtov-n ;irea around noon, swarmed on the walls of buildings, flew into open office windows and died by the millions under the wheels of downtown traffic. Police switchboards and city health officials were kept hopping as well, as hundreds of residents wanled to know how to gel rid of the pests. According t o Macdonald College entomologist Dr. V. R. Vickep', the cause of the in- sect invasion was the snow storms which hit Montreal last February and March. "The heavy snow cover provided excellent insulation for the grasshopper eggs in the soil, resulting in a greater number of eggs hatching in the he said.
