Across from the Elks Club threat to politics, marriage9 TORONTO (CP) Science threatens everything from politics to marriage today, say leading sociologists. But they said Monday that these institutions can surmount these problems. Perhaps in some cases, science might pro- vide solutions. Ulf Himmelstrand, a Swedish sociologist, told reporters at an international sociology conference here that Western liberal society faces an immediate challenge in science. !f Western society wanted to avoid centralized state socialism, scientific advances must not disrupt free market forces. Harold Christensen, sociology professor at Indiana's Purdue University, said in an interview at the conference that replace- ment of religious values by faith in science and secular views has shaken marriage and the family. "These institutions are in question about he said. But the American sociologist is optimistic. Marriage, he said, will survive experiments such as communal living. The two professors are attending the eighth world congress of sociology. About delegates from more than 50 countries are at the conference. Ramkrishna Mukherjee, an Indian sociologist, said the world faces crises ranging from population explosion to eco- nomic breakdown. Prof. Himmelstrand said technical change creates new demands. He questioned whether liberal democracy could maintain the free market system as it is. He wondered whether Western governments would have to turn to the strongly centralized patterns of countries like the Soviet Union. Prof. Christensen said a survey among Purdue students showed they preferred mar- riage to other styles of life. But these students felt the wife should play a more independent role than in the past. Emergency bus service starts for Toronto TORONTO (CP) Metropolitan Toronto has initiated an emergency bus service for persons in need to use during the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) strike, now going in to its second week. The service is being operated with about 40 buses and is transporting senior citizens, handicapped persons and people on welfare for food shopping and medical and dental care. Metro Chairman Paul Godfrey has appealed to health clinics, doctors and dentists to extend their hours during the strike. The striking Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) and the Canadian Union of Public Em- ployees (CUPE) have approved the special service. Members of CUPE are driving the buses. Meanwhile, weary negotiators of the ATU and the TTC appeared to be still days away from coming to grips with the major issues of the dispute that led to ATU members walking out last Monday. Since talks resumed between the two sides a week ago, negotiators have been attempting to reach agreement on relatively minor issues contained in the union's original 148 demands.

But Alan Beesley, leader of the Canadian delegation and other delegation spokesmen, continued to emphasize that the June 20-Aug. 29 conference was turning out to be a success because it was setting the tone for another international meeting on sea law virtually certain to be held within the next 18 months. Beesley and other Canadians predicted that a global treaty, including a 200- mile economic zone off both Canada's east and west coasts, will be achieved protection of the oceans is reached.

MONTREAL (CP) Con- tempt of court hearings against 71 garage and maintenance employees, whose walkout 14 days ago resulted in a shutdown of the subway, will resume today in Quebec Superior Court. The charges against the striking members of the Montreal Transport Union are the first of 158 charges resulting from union defiance of a Quebec Superior Court injunction granted two weeks ago ordering the men to return to work immediately. The hearings opened Monday but were postponed until today by Mr. Justice James K. Hugessen at the request of Clement Richard, union lawyer. During Monday's proceedings about 600 of the 1.600-member union circled the courthouse in a show of solidarity and later staged a peaceful outdoor rally nearby. Police reported no incidents. Mr. Richard, in asking for postponement, argued he needed time to establish which of the accused were actually on holiday or on sick leave at the time the injunction was granted. However, Constantin Stavropoulos. the UN under- secretary general, told a briefing Monday that several other conferences will be necessary before a worldwide treaty on the use and Kenora discussions aimed at correcting grievances B.C. Tories defecting: 6party lacks direction9 VANCOUVER (CP) The president of the Vancouver Point Grey Conservative Association said Monday that he and 15 other members have joined the Social Credit party. Fred Cavanagh said they left the Conservative party because it doesn't appear to know where it's heading and lacks direction. He said Social Credit offers the best private enterprise alternative to the NDP government. "What we are espousing is good government in this province." Mr. Cavanagh said. "If Mr. (Opposition Leader Bill) Bennett was not willing to open his party to all segments of society, we would not make this move and the Convervative party would be growing by leaps and bounds." The association president described the members who left as the working executive. "I would call these people the activist group of the Conservative organization." KENORA, Ont. (CP) Talks aimed at correcting Indian grievances that led to the armed occupation of Anicinabe Park were to continue today between representatives of three levels of government and Indian leaders, but without word on what progress has been made. Neither the Indians nor the federal, provincial and local goverment representatives would comment on the negotiations that began Sunday at 9 p.m. CDT. The talks began after mediation efforts by American Indian Movement leader Dennis Banks resulted in Ojibway Warriors Society members laying their guns aside in exchange for lighter police surveillance. To get the talks started in a healthy atmosphere, the agreement also provided for the physical well-being of the park occupants who would remain there, but free to come and go at will for an initial 10-day period. Link between Ontario, B.C. murders doubted CTC witnesses fear reprisals TORONTO (CP) An On- tario Provincial Police official said today the OPP has found no link between a series of unsolved murders in British Columbia and 13 killings in the area of London, Ont., between 1968 and last spring. Chief Inspector J. E. Grubb, head of the criminal investiga- tion branch, said that about a month ago an investigator had been assigned to review all the Ontario cases as a matter of normal procedure, to see if anything may have been over- looked in earlier investigations. CHQT radio in Edmonton said Monday similarities in the sex slayings of seven young women in the B.C. interior prompted a renewed probe by OPP homicide detectives. Chief Inspector Grubb said here that any similarities be- tween the B.C. and London- area cases were apart from the fact that several of the London killings involved sexual attacks. OTTAWA (CP) Fear of reprisal is prohibiting key wit- nesses from appearing before Canadian transport commission hearings on proposed rate increases by Canadian Pacific-Canadian National Tele- communications, a union spokesman said Monday. Martin Levinson, counsel for the United Telegraph Workers Union, presented evidence to the twice- postponed hearings on behalf of CN-CP employees and employees of user companies, saying they had been refused permission to attend the hear- ings as witnesses to testify on the need for and quality of services provided by the applicants. Mr. Levinson read to the commission which cited the case of Frank Williamson, a1 CN employee for the past 36 years, as one case for review. Mr. Williamson, now man- ager-operator of the CN office in Vernon, B.C. and also an al- derman in that city, was asked to testify by the union on July 19, 1974. But when he broached the subject with the regional manager he was told that his request for leave would be refused, Mr. Levinson told the commission. "Williamson is only one ex- ample, there are many Mr. Levinson said later in an interview. He said many fear cancellation of their pension programs if they testify before the hearings. Union representatives com- plain they "are powerless to enforce their attendance" in view of a National Transportation Act provision which states that no person is compellable, against his will, to attend a hearing outside the province in which he is served. People in their home province "are so frightened of job reprisal, that most state flatly that they will not tell the truth if forced to appear at the hearings, he said in the interview. Mr. Levinson submitted a plea Monday on behalf of the United Telegraph Workers Union and the Canadian Railway Labour Association, for the commission to hold hearings across Canada before granting the requested increases. Both groups believe that the increases sought will effectively "kill the telegraph business in Canada as far as the average individual Canadian is said Mr. Levinson. Their stand got the backing of the Canadian Labor Congress. "We fully support the position taken by the CRLA and the said Donald Montgomery, CLC secretary- treasurer. A ruling on Mr. Levinson's motion for across Canada hearings is expected later in the week. CN-CP Telecommun- ications is proposing a nine- per-cent increase for public telegrams and business communications. The latest application is in addition to a proposal presented in November, 1973, for an 11 per cent increase for telegrams, still pending before the commission. The total increase, if ap- proved, is expected to yield approximately million in annual revenue, partially offsetting higher annual labor costs, on which the applications are based. our Complete Line of FALL SHOES Has Arrived!
