GAGLARDI jobless want him out Gaglardi Resignation Demanded VANCOUVER (CP) A crowd of about ZOO unemployed persons demonstrated in down- town Vancouver Wednesday and made a series of demands including a call for the resig- nation of British Columbia Wel- fare Minister P. A. Gaglardi. The pickets first gathered at the Vancouver Court House, then moved to Mr. Gaglardi's office. When told that Mr. Gag- lardi was not there, the crowd moved to a downtown office of Canada Manpower, where they were met by a senior official. The official told delegates he would forward their demands to the federal labor minister. The demands were for jobs, a guaranteed annual income, equal wage and job opportuni- ties for women, and the resig- nation of Mr. Gaglardi. The demonstrators chanted "Gaglardi must go."

Transport commission presi- dent Jack Pickersgill told the third day of a public hearing, that the decision for the service to continue is firm and the hear- ing is concerned only with the economics of The Canadian. A chief aspect of the problem was whether The Canadian served a large enough segment of the country's populaiton to warrant heavy subsidies by all of Canada's population. Mr. Pickersgill emphasized the railway was to find means of providing meals and beds on the daily service between Mont- real and Vancouver at cost. "It is one thing to subsidize losses for basic transportation but it is another to subsidize meals of people while they are being transported and their bed at public expense." He said the commission is far from satisfied that the CPR has made every effort to "seriously explore all possible ways ol feeding passengers at cost." Legal counsel for the CPR said new material will be pre- pared for the commission for the next round of hearings scheduled for October. The present round continues in Van- couver today. Commission member J. M. Woodard said he was disap- pointed that none of the submis- sions at the hearing presented an alternative to the much-criti- cized Canadian Pacific plan. The submission closest to con- taining an alternative was that presented by the Alberta Feder- ation of Labor which suggested nationalization of all the com- pany's assets. The federation brief said the railway had gone to considera- ble length to show losses on The Canadian, but had done nothing to upgrade passenger service 01 encourage the travelling public in any way to use the railways. Forest Reserve Fire Still Crucial CALGARY (CP) The su- perintendent of the Bow River Forest Reserve said Wednes- day night that the next 48 hours will be crucial in attempts to control a large fire burning in the reserve 80 miles northwest of here. It all depends on the weath- er, said Superintendent Law- rence Gauthier. Some 300 firefighters gained on the flames Tilth ttie help of cooler temperatures and high humidity Wednesday and Mr. Gauthier said if the same con- ditions persist for the next two days experienced crews should get a firm grip on the blaze. But if hot weather returns, the men will practically have to start ail over again. The fire started last Thurs- day and has engulfed more than acres of mature spruce and pine between the north and south forks of Burnt Timber Creek. The humidity was helpful but also detrimental, leading to formation of a haze that kept mud and water bombing air- craft out of action Wednesday. A forest officer from Slave Lake, Alia., R. Cogram, was injured early Wednesday when he was stack by a falling tree while scouting a fire line. He was reported resting comfort- ably in hospital in 'Calgary Wednesday night. Some men had to be called away from the main fire Wed- nesday to extinguish smould- ering campfires in the area. "I think that the people who left these fires didn't exercise much Mr. Gauthier said.

Corner 3rd Avenue, 3rd Street Soulh Phone 327-2805 Peter Lougheed, leader of the Alberta Progressive Conserva- tive party, said the CPR pro- posal to cut frequency of trains and run smaller trains at all times would have a detrimental effect on the economy of south- ern Alberta. The company's attempt to rid itself of the passenger service was contrary to the agreement of 1881 under winch the com- pany received lands and money to provide an efficient rail serv- ice in perpetuity. The people of Alberta would have difficulty accepting the railway's pleas of uneconomic operation of The Canadian, he said, while other company inter- ests were reaping profits from land and mineral rights ac- quired in the original agree, ment. None of the briefs presented at the hearing supported the Ca- nadian Pacific plan, with the most scathing denunciation coming from Calgary Mayor Rod Sykes, a former Canadian Pacific executive. He said the proposal was filled with illogical and irra- tional thinking and was so poorly supported by evidence that it could not be seriously considered. The plan was submitted In July after the transport com- mission ordered the railway to find a solution for its losses. The commission said the serv- ice must continue in the public interest even though it was un- economic, losing in 1963. Weather Halts Search For Plane RED DEER (CP) Low cloud and rain showers Wed- nesday prevented a thorough search in foothills west of this central Alberta city for a miss- ing Cessna 182 aircraft with four persons on board. Searchmaster C a p t. Jack Walmsley said a Canadian Forces helicopter flew a low- level pattern over the Ram Rivei4 and a creek leading to the North Saskatchewan River but found no trace of the Ces- sna. The plane was reported over- due Saturday when it did not return from a one-day flight into the Ram River area, about 100 miles west of Red Deer, in search of wildlife. Ths four persons missing are pilot Vance E. Molsberry and Christine Bailes, both of Cal- gary, and Joyce EnghoJ and Martin C. Anderson, both of Red Deer. The search continues today. Detroit Areas Under States Of Emergency ROYAL pAK, Mich. (AP) Two Detroit suburbs are under indefinite states of emergency today, following three nights of rock- and bottle-throwing ram- pages by teen-agers. At least 400 youths were ar- rested Wednesday night after a clash with police in Royal Oak and the adjacent suburb at Bir- mingham, said Assistant Police Chief James Soul of Royal Oak. That brings the three-day ar- rest total to more than 500. Most were arrested for curfew violation, although Soul said several arrests were made on suspicion of narcotics posses- sion.

MPs Misuse Free Mailing Privileges Says Tory MLA CALGARY (CP) Some members of Parliament are misusing their franking, or free constituency mailing p r i v- ileges, Progressive Conserva- tive MLA Dave Russell com- plained Wednesday. "A letter came to me, obviously by mistake, contain- ing a blurb on William Aber- hart and inviting me to the So- cial Credit rally convention." The letter was signed by the president of the Federal Social Credit Party, he said, "and was sent from Ottawa under the franking privilege of a Que- Escape To West NUREMBERG (Reuters) Three young East Germans crossed the mined and fortified "death strip" from East to West Jermany Wednesday, Bavarian wrder police reported. bee MP, Gilbert Rondeau." (Shefford RaJh'ement Des Mr. Russell said in an Inter- view he has never seen such "blantant misuse" of the priv- ilege and emphasized party mail is usually sent by regular post. "When an MP used his frank- ing privilege, the expense is picked up by the public, but to send political propaganda this way is an abuse of the priv- ilege and is unbelievably chintzy." Mr. Russell said he would in- form Mr. Rondeau of his com- plaint and also ask some Con- servative members to raise the question at the next sitting of the House. mwm PRESENTS THE WEATHER AND ROAD REPORT SUNRISE FRIDAY SUNSET ABOVE TO-O Od ZERO AT Letlibricige 75 Pincher Creek 78 Waterton (apprix) 78 Medicine Hat 75 Edmonton 64 Jasper 71 Banff 75 Calgary 64 Cranbrook 83 Victoria 72 Prince George 69 Penticton 82 Kamloops 88 Vancouver 68 Saskatoon 71 Regina 84 NOON 48 43 48 50 33 .09 45 51 .10 Winnipeg Toronto Ottawa Montreal St. John Halifax Chicago New York Miami.....
