Inspector Jack Roy said in a telephone interview from Calgary Thursday that "the incident has drawn attention to a policy that needs clarification and an improve- ment will result." "Maybe they (the officers) could have used better judgment, but I think they felt locked in to this office's policy decision." The officers said they were under orders not to leave the office.

Lyssarides emerged a fort- night ago, after Makarios's deputy, Glafkos derides, re- placed EOKA leader Nikos Sampson as president. Agnew scoffs at 'leniency9 Ontario legislature set to end transit strike WASHINGTON (AP) Former vice-president Spiro Agnew, in a letter to the Washington Post, takes issue, with use of the word "leniency" in the headline of an article regarding his legal problems. He also complains of being "harassed by the news media." "Leniency in my case? That is to Agnew writes. "The whole story will be told later; meanwhile, please bear in mind that the bribery and extortion charges against me are unproved, that I denied them on national television and that I continue to deny the letter says. It adds: "For my decision not to contest a single tax charge, I have lost the right to practise my profession, lost a substantial pension, temporarily lost my right to vote, and have won the right to be harassed by the news media and be consistently referred to as a convicted telon who has admitted to all the acts I have specifical- ly denied." Agnew resigned as Richard Nixon's vice-president last October and pleaded no contest to one count of income-tax evasion. He subsequently was disbarred as a lawyer in Maryland. lq a reply printed beneath Agnew's letter, the Post says: "Neither in the Aug. 23 news story nor at any other time has this newspaper stated that the former vice-president has admitted to any criminal acts other than the tax charge to which he pleaded nolo contendere (no The editor's note says that "this plea was described by the judge in the case as the equivalent of a plea of guilty, giving Mr. Agnew the same legal status as though he had been convicted." The disputed headline read: "Agnew Case 'Lenien- cy' Effect Eyed." The newspaper says the word "leniency" was "a reference to a direct quotation from an interview with former deputy attorney-general William Ruckels Haus in which he also referred to the 'special treatment' accorded to the vice-president." I TORONTO (CP) The On- tario legislature will meet this afternoon to legislate a quick end to a strike that has paral- ysed public transit in Metropolitan Toronto since Aug. 12. Premier William Davis an- nounced the recall of the house in summer at a news conference Thursday, saying the strike has created too many hardships for too long for the region's two million people. The government will order the strikers back to work for the Toronto Transit Com- mission (TTC) and Grav Coach Lines and provide for arbitration of unsettled issues. Mr. Davis said he expects the bill to pass quickly and he hopes Toronto's subway trains, trams and buses would be running again Saturday. Only the New Democratic Party with 19 members, is expected to op- pose the bill, the contents of which Mr. Davis declined to discuss with reporters. Leonard Moynehan, division president of the striking Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) workers said he would Negotiator named in subway strike Creston school board to lock out workers CRESTON, B.C. (CP) The Creston Kaslo school board voted Thursday to lockout about 50 employees of the school district. The employees are member of the Canadian Union of Public Employees and include custodians, clerical workers, teachers aides, maintenance men and groundsmen. Bill McSeveney, chairman of the Creston Kaslo board, said lockout action was taken because the board felt the CUPE member were holding off strike action until Tuesday the first day of school so they could qualify for holiday pay Monday A meeting between school board representatives and CUPE broke off in Cranbrook Thursday. CUPE is seeking, on behalf of about 300 non teaching school staff, a 24 per cent increase in a one year contract while the boards have offered 16 per cent. MONTREAL spe- cial negotiator has been ap- pointed to settle the city's dis- pute with 1.600 striking transit workers, but he is not to begin his duties until the men are back on the job. Intervening in the 24-day-old dispute for the first time. Labor Minister Jean Cour- noyer said Thursday night Lu- cien Saulnier, former chairman of the city's ex- ecutive committee, would study workers' demands for cost-of-living increases as soon as the men returned to work. "We will co-operate with the said Marcel Pepin, president of the Confederation of National Trade Unions, to which the transit workers' union is af- filiated. "But are not in a posi- tion at this time to recom- mend a return to work." Mr. Cournoyer said Mr. Saulnier would be given 15 days to study and report on demands by the Montreal Transport Union, which represents the striking garage and maintenance workers. The city's subway has been idle since the Aug. 7 walkout and bus service has been intermittent because of bus driver's refusal to cross cer- tain picket lines for fear of violence. About 43 of 130 city routes were not operating Thursday because of the pickets, despite promises by Lawrence Hanigan, Montreal Urban Community Transit Commis- sion (MUCTC) chairman, for increased protection by city police. The MUCTC will cancel all bus transportation during the three-day Labor Day weekend to allow for repairs and maintenance. This procedure has been followed the last two weekends. Sea law conference ends without coast' zone ruling CARACAS (CP) Ships of more than a dozen countries have at least another year to continue sweeping the vast fishing banks off New- foundland and waters in sight of the British Columbia coast without the hindrance of Canadian rules. The Third United Nations Law of the Sea Conference ended here Thursday without Short space mission planned, Soviets claim MOSCOW (AP) The head of Soviet cosmonaut training indicated today that the night landing made by the Soyuz 15 spacecraft was part of the ad- vance flight plan and not an emergency measure because something went wrong in the flight, as some Western ex- perts believe. However, Maj.-Gen. Vladimir Shatalov gave no ex- planation for the brief dura- tion of the flight. Shatalov told Pravda that space flights are becoming more frequent, "this is our work, and we must perform it under any conditions." "By tying the landing to a definite time of day, we set in advance rigid conditions for the starting crew. The task was to prove that it is possible to work at night as efficiently as in the day. I think the crew of the Soyuz spaceship has proved that." producing a global treaty cov- ering use and protection of the oceans but there were pre- dictions that such an agree- ment would emerge from the next international gathering in 1975 at Geneva and Caracas. Most of the 137 countries and 14 observer delegations at the conference in this Venezuelan capital approved in principle a proposal by Canada and other coastal states for an exclusive economic zone of 200 miles. Under the concept proposed by Canada, a coastal state would have total management control of all living and in- animate resources to the edge of the continental shelf or to a distance of 200 miles, whichever is greater. Canada wants the power to set fish quotas and tell other countries fishing over her continental shelves what kind of gear to use and what species to catch. The catch assigned to other countries would be the amount left over after a preferential share was reserved for Cana- dian fishermen. Three Canadian ministers, who attended closing sessions of the conference, admitted they were under pressure from Canadian fishermen to unilaterally declare an economic zone. External Affairs Minister Allan MacEachen, head of Canada's delegation, said un- ilateral action is an option but Canada would be "unwise" to move in that direction. Conference president Ham- ilton Amerasinghe of Sri Lanka asked delegates at the final plenary meeting to "restrain ourselves in the temptation to take unilateral action." Amerasinghe said he is aware of internal pressures in many countries for unilateral action and although he urged restraint it would be un- reasonable to "expect governments to exercise in- finite patience." Privacy law individual right, Lang says WINNIPEG (CP) -Justice Minister Otto Lang told the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police Thursday its contention that new privacy legislation hinders the policeman's work will have to be proven before he would consider modifying the law. Mr. Lang said police chiefs should not over-react against the law but instead should try to make it work, and warned than an over-reaction against the law would "create a division of spirit between yourselves and the community." He granted that the new act defined and reduced the police power of surveillance and put it under closer control, but the aim was a balance between the individual's right to privacy and the right of the community to be protected. "It is not out of a desire to create a bother for you that the law is Mr. Lang told members attending the week-long conference. "It may well be that the law can be made to work better than you or I thought it would." Delegates to the conference havi> accepted a committee report urging that the protection of privacy act, popularly known as the wiretap bill, be repealed. The bill became part of the Criminal Code of Canada in June. Mr. Lang said later in an interview Parliament would be "appalled" at the idea of repealing a bill that was passed as recently as January. "Obviously, we're not going to be altering it in any major way at this point." One of the new law's provisions says electronic surveillance may be used only where certain indictable offences may be involved, and then only on the responsibility of the provincial attorney- general and on the authority of a judge. Mr. Lang was unsympathetic to another suggestion adopted by the association, that begging be reinstated as an offence in the Criminal Code of Canada. He said begging is a municipal- civil, rather than criminal, matter. Winnipeg Police Chief Norman Stewart took issue with that argument, contending the problem is a- federal one because most of usually are not residents of the province where they are begging. Chief Stewart said in an interview he has received many complaints from citizens and has himself been approached for handouts by street beggars. He said he always tells them, "go and work for it like I do." The associaton's crime prevention committee called on the courts to give drug addicts tougher treatment. It said addicts must be forced to take medical treatment if Canada's drug addiction problem is to be reduced. "Addicts should not be pampered or receive preferential treatment as they do now when they appear in said the committee's report. "They are law-breakers." The committee report, adopted by the convention, also said schools should teach obedience to the law and should inform youngsters of the penalties involved when laws are broken. It also said the practice of issuing concurrent sentences should be stopped and consecutive sentences should the beggars are transients and be imposed for major crimes such as robbery with violence, break and enter or theft of goods valued at over A committee on juvenile delinquency reported an alarming increase in the use by young people of marijuana and what it termed other opiate-like soft drugs. meet with the union executive today before deciding how to respond to imposition of com- pulsory arbitration. The union plans a mass demonstration outside the legislature to protest the government's intention to im- pose compulsory arbitration. Karl Mallette, TTC chair- man, said Thursday that tran- sit service could be operational in six hours if ser- vice is ordered to resume Saturday. However, Mr. Moynehan said the transit system would not be fully operational until Wednesday, even if legislation i ordering the men back to work is passed. "We can't take the word of newspapers that there's a law to order us he said "We'll have to get that law in our hands, go over it with our lawyers on Saturday and we hope to present it to our mem- bership at a mass meeting on Sunday." Egyptian queen's mummy found ANN ARBOR. Mich. (Reuter) A team of U.S. scientists believes it may have discovered the body of Queen Hatshepsut, a ruler of ancient Egypt, during an ex- pedition to the Egyptian Valley of the Kings. The team, composed of members of the University of Michigan School of Dentistry headed by Dr. James Harris, said it entered a sealed chamber in a tomb across the Nile from Luxor last spring and discovered the mummies of three unknown noblewomen After x-raying the mum- mies and consulting with Dr. Edward Wente, an egyp- tologist of Chicago, and other experts, Harris said he concluded one of the mum- mies was either the long- sought Queen Hatshepsut or possibly Queen Tyi. Queen Hatshepsut. one of the most famous women of an- cient Egypt, ruled between 1489 and 1469 B.C. She built a magnificent temple on the east bank of the Nile at Deir el Bahari, erected a gold covered obelisk at Karnack and is reported to have sent out wide ranging military expeditions.
